Tundu Lissu Flees Tanzania – Video

Tanzanian opposition leader Tundu Lissu has reportedly fled Tanzania as the setting continues to be unfavorable to those dissenting from President John Magufuli.

Honorable Lissu vied against Magufuli via the Chadema party ticket but got floored by the latter who was sworn for his second term last week. The polls were however marred with claims of big-time rigging and other vote-related frauds.

Lissu had expressed concerns about his security, having fears about his life.

He is said to have been taking refuge at the German embassy in the country’s capital more than a week into the declaration of Magufuli as the president-elect. Sources hint (unconfirmed though) he could be destined for Belgium as the state continues to crack down on opposition adherents.
