On Thursday 10 September, Tanzanian opposition leader Tundu Lissu’s campaign schedule was buckled after the local aviation authority denied the helicopter he was to use rights to fly.
In a statement that Chadema Party issued, it claimed they had received information from Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority few hours before the boarding time.
According to the Aviation Authority, they did not indicate convincing reasons as to why the helicopter could not fly to the campaign areas despite earlier arrangements and had been cleared to board.
It’s reported the politician was forced to find alternative means to reach the campaign destinations.
This was not the first time the party leader faced disruptions ahead of his campaigns, with him blaming President Magufuli’s reign for attempt to sabotage his campaigns.
