Tanzania: Yet another journalist is arrested by the authorities
This is becoming to common, too many journalists and opposition activists are getting detained. This is happening so frequently, that you cannot even keep up with the ones already behind bars. That is how serious the CCM and President Magufuli is vamping up the arrests.
The recent one was yesterday, as journalist Haruna Mapunda as he was gathering information about the opening of the ACT-Wazelendo Branch in Temeke, Temeke district. His been since been detained at the Chang’ombe Police Station in Dar es Salaam, where his people have tried to bail him out. But the authorities will not allow that, as the authorities plans to sentence him on Wednesday in the up-coming week.
This is yet another one in the mass of journalists, writers and others whose been detained, arrested and silenced by the authorities by the CCM under Magufuli. It is nearly the worst profession, except for actually being an opposition leader. Than, you can get into the same amount of trouble for doing your job. If you are questioning or revealing certain secrets. You get into trouble and will be pinned for something. That is just what they do, manufacture charges, because your insulting the intelligence of the CCM. They cannot accept that in 2019.
They have to be cuddled, loved and cherished. Not questioned or shown their true character. Since that is a profound message, a incredible dogma, that only the anointed and the trusted personnel are supposed to get. The rest are supposed to blind supporters and yes-men, who doesn’t have capacity to think for themselves. If they do, do it in silence or behind closed doors, where you sure your grievances isn’t in public. If they are, then your in trouble and Mr. Officer will knock on your door. Peace.
