Tanzanian Police To Charge Opposition Leaders With Planning To Bomb Dar es Salaam
BBC reported Monday that people do not appear to have heeded the protest call from the opposition.
Police in Tanzania say they will charge the opposition leader Freeman Mbowe and several of his colleagues with planning violent protests, accusing them of planning to blow up petrol stations and markets in the biggest city, Dar es Salaam.
Chadema party chairman Mr Mbowe and other senior members of the main opposition group were arrested after calling for mass protests against the landslide victory of President John Magufuli in last week’s election.
A BBC correspondent in Tanzania says people do not appear to have heeded the protest call.
The opposition has demanded a re-run of the poll, in which the UK and the United States said there had been systematic interference.
