    Kigoma. Police in Kigoma were forced to use tear gas to disperse people attending a meeting convened by the Kigoma South MP, Mr David Kafulila (NCCR-Mageuzi), who is on a tour of villages in his constituency.Speaking to this newspaper, the MP said police used tear gas at a meeting he had convened at Kazuramimba on the grounds that the party had not secured a permit to hold the rally.

    "The police have prevented me from holding a meeting," said Mr Kafulila who was recently expelled from his party for what was described as indiscipline.Mr Kafulila said apart from dispersing people from the meeting, the police also used excessive force.

    Reports said the police officers were dispatched to the scene by the Kigoma Officer Commanding District (OCD), Mr Japhet Kibona.Mr Kafulila claimed he was being sabotaged by the OCD and added that he had already reported the issue to the Inspector General of Police and the minister for Home Affairs.

    He said apart from using the tear gas, the police arrested him briefly for questioning at the Kazuramimba Police Post before he was set free.However, he said he was released on condition that he stopped holding the meeting.

    Mr Kafulila said he recently held such a similar meeting at Ilagala Village after it was blessed by the Kigoma regional police commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police Fraser Kashai.However, ACP Kashai said the Kazuramimba meeting could not be held because Mr Kafulila had failed to meet conditions for obtaining a permit.

    "The law states that anybody wishing to hold a meeting should obtain a permit from the police so that we can provide security," said the RPC.ACP Kashai added: "I wonder if Mr Kafulila does not know the law regarding the holding of meetings."

    4 Real James Mbatia and his surrogates made a mistake to let go Kafulila, what where they thinking? they were getting his money from the Government and feeds their stomachs...

    This shows how Bongo Politics has not matured
