Tension Rocks Tanzania as Suluhu's Government Does Unthinkable to Opposition Leaders

Tanzanian Opposition leaders are in trouble after Samia Suluhu's government cracks the whip on Opposition leaders.

Reports indicate that many Tanzanians have been arrested in Mwanza after attending forums for the new constitution.

It has also emerged that leader of Opposition party Tundu Lissu was arrested and is held incommunicado.

Tundu Lissu who jetted back to Tanzania last week has taken to his verified social media twitter account to condemn Suluhu's action on opposition leaders.

The CHADEMA leader has announced that CHADEMA party chairman Freeman Mbowe and other eleven members have been arrested in Mwanza.

"Mwenyekiti Freeman Mbowe & viongozi 11 wa CHADEMA wamekamatwa na polisi mjini Mwanza jana usiku kwa kuandaa Kongamano la Katiba Mpya. Kufanya kongamano sio kosa la jinai nchini. Watu wa Mwanza na kwingineko ingieni mitaani ili viongozi wetu waachiliwe na haki za kisiasa ziheshimiwe!"tweeted Tundu Lissu

Samia Suluhu has since went silent over the arrests.Lissu a few weeks ago while launching his book at Nairobi said Samia Suluhu hasn't bothered to take action against those who tried to kill him.The Opposition leader further claimed that he hasn't received any feedback from Samia Suluhu after request to have talks with her.
