#WhatWouldMagufuliDo; Lawyer and MP Singida Tindu Lissu arrested for calling President Magufuli a dictator!

“Prominent Lawyer from Dar and member of Parliament for Singida Tindu Lissu was arrested today for calling President Magufuli a Dictator or Dictator Uchwara” (Tanzania Human right Watch, 29.06.2016). 

Afterthought: #WhatWouldMagufuliDo?

Is it Yay? Or Nay?

The audio of what got him arrested:

I never thought that President Magufuli would sink so low that he starting to act a fool, instead of being the cool President in Tanzania. Magufuli have been seen as a game-changer and also reformer in East African Community, but now he is acting like a royal king and baboon. If I was in Tanzania writing this and acting like a opposition, I might be behind bars. Recently another man got detained for writing ruthlessly on WhatsApp Group in Tanzania. So the reality of ‘Free Speech’ is dying in Tanzania. The central control and power toward Magufuli is certainly there now. With this second action, he proves his will to use power to silence critics! Peace.
