Five family members who died at President John Pombe Joseph Magufuli’s requiem mass at Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam have finally been laid to rest.

Reports indicate that the five died as a result of a stampede that was witnessed at the stadium a few days ago, at a time people were struggling to catch a glimpse of the late Magufuli’s coffin.

During the stampede, several people collapsed, with reports showing that several others died in the chaos that erupted after some mourners braved security advice and forced their way into the stadium to pay their last respects.

It was in that process that the Mtuwa’s family from Kimara Mwisho in Dar es Salaam ended up registering its biggest loss when five of its members got killed in the process.

The five are Chris (11), Michael (8), Nathan (6), Natalia (5) and Suzan Ndana Mtua in her 30s.

Tanzanian International model Flaviana Matata wrote; “This is very sad. Mungu akawe mfariji kwa Baba wa hii familia pamoja na ndugu wote”

Former MP cum rapper Professor Jay also joined the Mtuwa’s family in mourning with a message that reads;
