Tanzania police arrest two, accuse them of organising protests

Tanzanian police have arrested a lawyer and an opposition politician. They’re accused of incitement and planning to organise nationwide demonstrations aimed at bringing down the government.  The police arrested lawyer Boniface Anyasile Mwabukusi and Mpaluka Nyagali on Saturday. Philip Mwakilima, a lawyer representing the two, told Reuters that he was making efforts to access them in custody and that the accusations against them were “false, fabricated”.
