The leader of opposition in the United Republic of Tanzania Mr. Tundu Antiphas Lissu has come out strongly to condemn the latest move by the Head of State Samia Suluhu Hassan to order the arrest and detention of Chama Cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (CHADEMA) Freeman Mbowe.
Taking to his Twitter page this Tuesday afternoon, Lissu urged all supporters and humanitarian organizations to cut off their support to the incumbent president arguing that no one is supposed to aid in her dictatorship.
"Any support to a dictatorship enables it to continue its oppression. Any type of sanctions against a dictatorship diminishes its capacity to oppress its people. Our friends & partners shouldn't be complicit in the oppression of Tanzanians by supporting the Samia dictatorship," Lisuu wrote.
A message from Chadema on Monday claimed that its chairman Freeman Mbowe was arraigned in court today on charges of terrorism. In a statement, the party also provided that Mr. Mbowe was unwell and requires medical attention.
