Finally Tanzanians Have Found a Kiswahili Official Name For Corona Virus Dabbed…

Tanzania is one of the countries in Africa where Corona virus was viewed as a scam by the then president, the late John Pombe Magufuli who succumbed to the same virus.

During his reign, Magufuli discouraged people from observing the Covid 19 containment measures by World Health Organization (WHO). He went to an extent of conducting own lab tests to prove the virus was non existent.

However, with Samia Suluhu assuming the office things changed where she acknowledged the presence of Covid 19 and implemented such measures as wearing of masks, social distancing and vaccination in the country.

Through out all this period, the virus had no Swahili name a thing that gave majority of Tanzanians a hard time since Kiswahili is their native language.

After complying with the rest of the world in this fight against the pandemic, Tanzanians have a Kiswahili official name for the virus dabbed ‘UVIKO’, a name that has caught the world by surprise.
