Tanzania’s opposition, led by the Party for Democracy and Progress (CHADEMA), staged a significant protest in Dar es Salaam, calling for changes to the constitution to limit presidential powers and reform the electoral commission ahead of the upcoming election.

Supporters marched for a new constitution and independent electoral body, emphasizing the need for fair elections and lower living costs.

Despite President Samia Suluhu Hassan’s recent easing of restrictions, the opposition insists on constitutional reforms for accountability. R

Reuters reports CHADEMA’s push for change, citing concerns over the existing constitution adopted in 1977 during single-party rule.

The protest aims to address longstanding issues and pave the way for a more transparent political landscape.
