    1. Always women are leaders. Congratulations our beloved President.

    2. Yes u can…keep moving mama keep shining mama…..u are my role model……

    3. Alot of love for mama hassan

    4. This woman can speak such fluent English but still most of the times she uses Kiswahili,I just love how Tanzanians are proud of their swahili language

    5. Leave the Massai on their land! You can gain much more with them staying!

    6. Village people saw magufuli.

    7. Vaccine is free, don't buy.

    8. Mama Nyota Wa Africa Mashariki. Tunakupenda sana.

    9. Her English is fine

    10. Ongeeni kiswahili huku Tanzania masikini tunaumia kilakitu kipo juu matozo yasiyoereweka kikeke njoo uulizie Bei za vitu juu mfano slingbodi ilikuwa 11000 Sasa 16000 hata mwaka haujaisha tunaumia hukuuu

    11. Some segments in the video are stamped not adjacent to each other

    12. 🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍

    13. Wonderful,
      Best wishes for you.
      I hope you will do good for the people of your country.

    14. Beautifully said. She seems humble

    15. Haahaaa it's never a wise practice by African leaders to make women vice presidents especially in Africa n worst!! Anyway History will offer u a verdict on your rise to power!

    16. Malawi also

    17. Hillary is a demon, that is why she didn't become president. Not because what was between her legs!

    18. May Allah help you, for believing in those who hate you since the beginning of time. Biological warfare is true.

    19. Africa history is full of women leaders and queens. she need to study up on her ancestors and not somebody else ancestor in a land far away.

    20. May God help her. She has such a huge task. She has to turn the team she inherited into a team that works for her. Why? Because she is changing the direction of the country into one that is friendly to business. Being from a business family she knows that she needs the private sector to spearhead economic development . She knows that if the economy grows so would be the ability of her government to fund its social responsibilities in health and education.
      Her instints are right. She started by prohibiting the PCCB from prosecuting civil cases as criminal. She had government drop fabricated cases and cases before the courts without sufficient evidence withdrawn. What cannot be explained under her watch is the case againgst the leader of opposition Mr. Mbowe. During the immediate past, all his businesses were destroyed, he was jailed and beaten. He and his other leaders were denied space to campaign and so forth. Observors are watching to see how this case ends. Her instincts to forge a peaceful path are correct.
      There are a significant number of people in her team who believe in the opposite of what she wants to do. They want things to go on as before she took over.
      The issue is whether she will change those fast enough and create a truely coherent seamless team or will she accommodate them and risk some of what she wants to do subbotaged by those.
      Time will tell. Again I pray for her to succeed. I pray for her to succeed in giving us soace for basic freedoms. For equal enforcement of the laws, on diverse sharing of power and resources especially as pertaining to the Northern province which has been marginalised a lot in the immediate past.

    21. •Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. There is no other intermediary. May Jesus Bless you, trust Him, give your life – and He will take care of it :pray Convert yourself and believe in the Gospel – Romans 10 8-10 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,”[a](A) that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: 9 If you declare(B) with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,”(C) and believe(D) in your heart that God raised him from the dead,(E) you will be saved.(F) 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

    22. This is wonderful and she seems so compassionate. I would like her to take action to help people with Albinism. They are still being hunted for their body parts. That needs to stop!

    23. My Role model🥰🥰…….When im loking her…i got emotions After she im gona be next woman president of Tanzania😥😥😥😍😍

    24. Uzalendo ni kazi kubwa sana ona hadi watoa maoni hutumia lugha ya kitumwa,wanaojitambua kama wachina wangekomaa na kichina chao ila wakuburuzwa ndo kama hivi.nilipotangaziwa ni lazima tuende sawa na mataifa mengine nikajua tumerudishwa utumwani wakati Magu ashatukomboa.ona sasa mtangazaji wanyumbani na mkuu wanyumbani kwanini kiswahili kisitumike kwisha habari yetu.

    25. So proud and so beautiful speech mama keep it up…..

    26. Kumbe anajua kingereza🤣🤣

    27. I love you so much as my mother', to be honest speaking you can't lead this country anymore…we can't appreciate your nonsense kind of leadership.. our beloved jpm teached us to be honest and hardworking. My advice I know you can't work like him but you can do your best to insure your people support and appreciate your effort in this country.

      I real shocked to see you use alot of energy to prove people that magufuli was wrong for every thing. That can't be… we are now matured and we know everything about this country. We all love you please love us too, respect all people who made you you to be vice president to Tanzanian president.
      All in all I love you my mum but this kind of leadership you lead us I'll never support you.

    35. Africa always shown the way , from Nefertiti, to Samia. infact Maat was to be observed by male, meaning basis for justice was Feminine…..

    36. Anae hoji na anaehojiwa wote kiswahili ndiyo lugha yao, na sidhani kama kuna anae amini kwamba wapo wengine watakao kuwa na intrest ya kusikiliza mahojiano haya zaidi ya wabongo, ni aibu sana kwa waafrika kuzarau lugha zao.

    37. She is very confident I like the spirit..
