Tanzania's Magufuli sees 'sabotage' in virus numbers
Tanzanian President John Magufuli on Sunday questioned his country's coronavirus numbers, and called on the authorities to investigate "sabotage" at the national laboratory.

He said he had secretly had a variety of animals, fruits and vehicle oil tested at the laboratory.

According to Magufuli, a papaya, a quail and a goat tested positive and he suspects a "dirty game" in the laboratory.

"That means there is possibility for technical errors or these imported reagents have issues. Probably, the technicians are also bought to mislead."

Magufuli was swearing in the new Minister for Constitution and Legal Affairs Mwigulu Nchemba, and urged him to "go and investigate if there is criminal possibility at the national laboratory and take action".

Nchemba is taking over after the death of Augustine Mahiga -- one of three MPs who died in the space of 11 days.

No reasons were given for the lawmakers' deaths.

However one MP tested positive for the coronavirus in April, and the opposition announced Friday it was ordering its lawmakers to stop going to parliament and to isolate themselves after the string of deaths.
