Magufuli Awards Retired Presidents 100 Peacocks



Tanzanian President John Magufuli on Saturday gave the country’s four retired presidents a gift of 100 peacocks in recognition of their contribution toward the conservation of the bird.

Magufuli handed over the birds which were introduced to Tanzania in the 1960s by the country’s founding father President Julius Nyerere shortly before the leaders had joined him in laying the foundation stone for the construction of six administration wings of the Chamwino State House in the capital Dodoma.

In an event televised live by state-run Tanzania Broadcasting Corporation, Magufuli presented 25 peacocks that are considered part of the government’s national trophy to Nyrere’s widow Maria Nyerere.

He also gave 25 peacocks each to retired Presidents Ali Hassan Mwinyi, Benjamin Mkapa and Jakaya Kikwete to keep the birds in their private gardens for their continued conservation.

Speaking after he had gifted the retired leaders with the peacocks, President Magufuli said after he had assumed the presidency in 2015, he improved conservation of the peacocks.”

It has been our desire to have the birds in our gardens, but it is now formal that the birds have been given to us,” said Kikwete in a vote of thanks on behalf of other retired leaders.
