Mixed Reactions as Tanzania’s Opposition Sends the Following Message to Reporters

Tanzania's opposition party has caused mixed reactions after calling for a press conference with all journalists in the country tomorrow. According to the statement issued today on their official page, the main opposition political party Chadema Tanzania, has invited all journalists at the party headquarters on Thursday 18, 2021 at 11 am.

However, the opposition did not reveal the reason behind tomorrow’s press conference but instead reminded those planning to attend to adhere to COVID-19 measures and guidelines.

“Kesho Alhamisi tarehe 18.03.2021 saa tano kamili kutakuwa na mkutano wa waandishi wa habari, makao makuu ya @ChademaTz. Wanahabari wote mnakaribishwa, tafadhalizingatia tahadhari juu ya Corona”, read the statement.

This is the first time the opposition party has called for a press meeting amid concerns of the whereabouts and health status of Tanzanian's president Pombe Magufuli. Tanzanian authorities are yet to provide clear answers of his whereabouts since he is been missing from the public eye as they try to contain rumors about his health status.

However, Tanzania’s opposition leader Tundu Lissu has called out the police for arresting citizens questioning president Magufuli’s absence.

With the mystery surrounding Magufuli’s whereabouts and the opposition’s press conference scheduled for tomorrow, Tanzanians are left in dilemma hoping that the opposition have the answers they have been searching for.
