Is The Donations Genuine?

Are the donations from Jack Ma foundation and Alibaba foundation genuine? For me, the donation is genuine. No doubt about that.

The above question came to my mind after watching a video of Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli. He was telling the people of Tanzania not to accept any donation from any person they do not trust.

According to Magufuli, donations during this hard time may be used as a weapon to spread the disease to the innocent citizens. He added that if need be those donations will be thoroughly checked first before accepting.

Jack Ma has made lots of Donations to 54 countries in Africa as stated above. This means Tanzania is in the list. I am not sure if they accepted the Donation.

Tanzanian president, from the beginning has been seen to be fighting this pandemic disease using a different style. Magufuli believe prayers is the only way to defeat the disease. He told people of Tanzania not to be afraid to go to mosque and churches to pray.

John Magufuli is on record also telling farmers and businessmen in Tanzania to continue with life as normal. He asked them not to allow corona virus to affect the economy of the country.
