Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli is one head of state who never ceases to amaze.

On Friday he video bombed a TV reporter, randomly joining the set just to say hi.

The Azam TV reporter, Florian Kaijage, was live from State House when the President Magufuli checked in and asked what station that was.

A startled Kaijage on feeling a pat on his back quickly mumbled an apology but was shocked to see the President and his aide.


“Hii ni Azam,” responded the reporter to the President’s enquiry.

“Azam, baas hongereni sana,” said Magufuli.

The stunned reporter went on to greet the President who said “Haya nifikishie hizi salamu,” before adding, “Azam Hoyeee.”

The reporter paused for a moment before responding “Hoye.”

The rare video-bombing incident by the President has been shared on YouTube.
