    Tanzanian President John Magufuli has brought radical changes to the country since he came to power three years ago.

    He has introduced ways to save money, waged a war on corruption and gotten rid of so-called government "ghost workers".

    But a clampdown on other areas, from politics to media and even sexual morality, is leading some to criticise him.
