Tanzania President Magufuli comes under attack over censorship

Even as Tanzania sees a turnaround in many areas, critics express concern over President John Magufuli’s tactics.

Tanzanian President John Magufuli has brought radical changes to the country since he came to power three years ago.

He has introduced ways to save money, waged a war on corruption and gotten rid of so-called government “ghost workers”.

But a clampdown on other areas, from politics to media and even sexual morality, is leading some to criticise him.
