Tanzania's Samia Suluhu Hassan Sworn In As First Female President

Samia Suluhu Hassan, 61, a soft-spoken Muslim woman from the island of Zanzibar, will finish Magufuli's second five-year term, set to run until 2025.

Tanzania's Samia Suluhu Hassan was on Friday sworn in as the country's first female president after the sudden death of John Magufuli from an illness shrouded in mystery. Hassan, 61, a soft-spoken Muslim woman from the island of Zanzibar, will finish Magufuli's second five-year term, set to run until 2025.

She becomes the only other current serving female head of state in Africa alongside Ethiopia's President Sahle-Work Zewde, whose role is mainly ceremonial.
