Abstract : “I am just a servant and I have made sacrifice of my life for giving service to Tanzanian people”. These were words spoken by the late Dr. Magufuli before the audience during his state tours in some parts of the country. The objective of this paper was to analyze servant leadership behaviours exhibited by Dr. Magufuli to increase better understanding of his servanthood. A qualitative single-case-study was a research design employed by the paper. Methods of data collection included indirect observation of audio-visual pictures and document analysis published on-line. Data analysis was conducted through content analysis in which themes were developed and categorized under various types of servant leadership behaviours based on scholars’ framework of servant leader behaviours. The paper found that Dr. Magufuli exhibited the highest level of servant leadership behaviours and among them were his ability to conceptualize vision of industrialization and taking efforts to solve the country’s complex problems in areas of road improvement and reducing energy crisis by starting construction of Hydro-Power Dam Project over Rufiji River basin. The paper further found that Dr. Magufuli healed emotional turmoil among his people especially when he succeeded to minimize corruption, drug trafficking and overcoming elephant poaching in National Parks and Game Reserves. Dr. Magufuli’s servant leadership behaviours were further expressed in his commitment to followers’ growth and success through fee-free education and expansion of Students’ Loan budget for increasing access to higher education for his people to succeed in their professional aspiration achievement. It was also found that Dr. Magufuli displayed the highest level of organizational stewardship behaviour by ensuring that government revenue, minerals, lands and water resources were safeguarded for collective interests of Tanzanian people. Based on Dr. Magufuli’s servant leadership behaviours, the paper provided recommendations for raising servant leadership among government leaders for rapid social and economic transformation of Tanzania.
