The 18th of March 2021 will be the last day of the year. A friendly match between the Harambee Stars and the Tanzanian national team was scheduled for Nyayo Stadium. The game, however, has been postponed due to the sudden death of Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli, who died on Wednesday night at Jakaya Kikwete Hospital after suffering from heart disease.
The match has been postponed as a mark of respect for the hero who has died. Tanzania's vice president, who is now president, has declared 14 days of mourning for the president and plans for the East African leader's funeral.
The Harambee Stars had played Tanzania earlier this week and won 3-1 on the road, and this was to be a rematch. Both are preparing for the CAF qualifications matches, which are scheduled to take place before the end of the month. Togo will be the first opponent for the Stars, who will then be welcomed by Egypt's national team in order to secure AFCON qualification.
Magufuli was committed to the development of young people and has been a vocal supporter of the national football team. He will be remembered for his selfless dedication to improving Tanzania's economy and bringing it up to par with the rest of East Africa and Africa.
