The world has been rocked by the death of Haitian president Jovenel Moïse, who was “riddled with 12 bullets”, in the early hours of Wednesday.

Just a month before Mr Moïse’s death, gunmen unsuccessfully attacked the former head of Uganda’s military while Colombia’s president had shots fired into his helicopter in an attempt to take it down, in early and late June respectively.

On April 19, president of the Central African nation of Chad, Idriss Déby was killed by rebel forces.

The president of Tanzania, John Magufuli, died on March 17 of a heart condition, chronic atrial fibrillation, according to the East African country’s former vice president, Samia Suluhu Hassan. Hassan said on national television that Magufuli “had this heart condition for the past 10 years,” and the Guardian reported he wore a pacemaker. 

Burundi President Pierre Nkurunziza died on June 8, 2020. He had been admitted to a hospital two days earlier. His condition improved, but he suffered cardiac arrest and efforts to revive him were unsuccessful, according to government officials.

Hamed Bakayoko became prime minister of Ivory Coast, also known as Côte d’Ivoire, in July 2020. Bakayoko died of cancer at a hospital in Germany on March 10.

Ambrose Dlamini, the prime minister of the kingdom of Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland, died on Dec. 13, 2020, four weeks after testing positive for COVID-19. We could find no evidence of Dlamini supporting or opposing vaccines.
