CHADEMA party Kawe MP Halima Mdee has been arrested for allegedly making disrespectful remarks against President John Magufuli. The legislator has been denied bail and would have to spend the weekend at the police station.
She disclosed through her Twitter that she had been summoned to Oyster Bay Police station but was unaware of the purpose of the summons. Last year Halima Mdee was arrested by police on orders of Raila Odinga’s darling John Pombe Magufuli.
In his tenure as president, Magufuli has presided over the arrest, detention and intimidation politicians, religious leaders, entertainers, journalists and bloggers who are critical of his leadership.
