Just a few months into office, Tanzanian President John Magufuli has finally learnt the ropes – how Africa works.

He seems to be taking particular inspiration from his brothers to the north.

Anyone who takes to social media to criticize him is in for a rough ride. The only difference between authorities in Tanzania and Kenya is a slight disagreement on what to call it: A ‘Licensed Communication Device’, or simply a ‘Computer System.’

This is what befell one Isaac Habakuk for calling Magufuli ‘bwege’.

If I had a dollar for every time my maths teacher called me ‘bwege’, I wouldn’t have needed to study math for a better future.
