Police in Tanzania arrests opposition leaders over ‘rigged election’ protests

20

A number of opposition figures in Tanzania have been arrested on Monday.

They have been rounded-up for planning “illegal demonstrations” after accusing the ruling party of rigging

the general election.

Main opposition parties on Saturday called out citizens to challenge the October 28 parliamentary and

presidential election outcomes.

President John Magufuli was declared the winner on Friday.

Special police zone commander, Lazaro Mambosasa, confirmed the arrests of 20 politicians.

Mambosasa, in a chat with reporters, listed Chadema Party National Chairman, Freeman Mbowe amongst

those in custody.

“We were tipped off that they were organizing illegal demonstrations and persuading youths to go into the

streets today. We didn’t issue a permit for anyone to hold demonstrations, so these are illegal

demonstrations,” Dpa quoted him as saying.
