The EFF calls for the immediate release of Sibongile Ndashe and 12 others who were arrested by the Tanzanian police for holding a meeting. Sibongile Ndashe who is a human rights lawyer and activist held a meeting with other activists and defenders to discuss ways of challenging Tanzanian authorities to allow the importation of health services to HIV patients. The Tanzanian authorities however, raided their meeting arresting them under the pretext that they were promoting homosexuality.

Tanzania cannot call itself a democracy if they arrest people for holding a meeting. Freedom of assembly is essential to any conception of a democratic society. It is therefore groundless for them to hold these human rights activists in prison, deny them a bail, and pretend to be a democracy. In essence they are violating what is a human right.

The EFF will write to the Tanzanian authorities to demand the end of this injustice.

Hawa mabwa.bwa warudi huko huko wasituharibie vizazi aisee
Huyu bwana mdogo Julius Malema ni mjinga sana,uroho wa madaraka unamfanya kuhararisha kila kitu ndani ya chama chake cha EFF.

Wahafidhina wenye akili ndani ya ANC waliona mahali anakoipeleka ile "Wing" ya vijana wa chama chao,wakaamua kumzika mapema...Anatumia ushawishi na ile wanaita "Jujuu" ya kuwa kijana wa mtaani kupata support na viti bungeni,lakini muelekeo wa chama chake na sera zake hauwezi kukubaliwa na watu wengi wa Afrika Kusini.

Chaka chake kinaruhusu mashoga,kinapiga kampeni ya kuruhusu ushoga na kuwapa mashoga nafasi,huyu aliyekamatwa Peacock ni "mchicha Mwiba"...anachomwa na kuchoma wenzake sehemu za siri,hii ndio moja ya sera ya EFF...Huu upumbavu hatuutaki haoa Tanzania.

Malema na chama chake walimtukana sana Museven baada ya sheria ya kuwawajibisha mashoga kupitishwa na bunge la Kampala,wakawa wanamtukana kwa kigezo cha kusema M7 ni dikteta,sasa anataka kutuletea sera za ushoga Tanzania kupitia wanachama wa chama chake!??

Zaidi ya mihemuko,huyu dogo huwa hana sera za maana,mara ya mwisho nilifanya naye mjadala Lanseria pale Bondeni,ni mtu mwenye siasa za chuki na kisirani,mpaka kesho aanaamini Mandela alinunuliwa na wazungu ndio maana hakulipiza kisasi alipopewa madaraka.

EFF Condemns Anti-Homosexuality Bill Ukipitia ndio utajua kwanini Malema na EFF walimtuma huyo bwana na ujio wake ulikuwa kuhimiza watu kupumuliana.

Kwa hili la kusupport ushoga EFF walichemsha, ila hawa jamaa ni nouma sio km unavyowazania. EFF ni vijana makini wanaojua siri nyingi za serikali kwa kuwa members wao wengi ni ex ANC. ANC ya sasa ni km CCM, mda si mrefu itakuwa history, DA na EFF ndio vyama vinavyokubaliwa na vijana wengi na watu makini. Mandela aliuza nchi waulize wa South wanaojielewa watakwambia, South Africa ni maghorofa na barabara lkn raia wao wengi wanaishi under poverty na yote haya ni kwasababu ya Mandela na ANC. Uhuru waliopewani wa kutembea na kununua polony, kiuchumi Kaburu bado anawatawala.

The chances of two South African lawyers arrested on Tuesday in Tanzania being released any time soon are minimal‚ as the east African country is yet to charge them.

The lawyers‚ who cannot be named‚ are being kept in custody without being charged along with one Ugandan and 9 other Tanzanian lawyers. The 12 were allegedly preparing for a case challenging the Tanzanian government’s decision to ban drop-in centres that served people particularly at risk of contracting HIV.

"The challenge we have is that we are engaging with people who are operating outside the confines of the law. In this case‚ because they are doing things arbitrarily‚ we are waiting for [Tanzanian authorities] to decide whether or not they are charging them‚ because they haven't done so‚" Matilda Lasseko of the Initiative for Strategic Litigation in Africa told TimesLIVE.

“The scary bit for us‚ is that had [authorities] been operating within legal confines‚ then we would be able to say [when the lawyers would be released‚ because the law says you can't hold someone for more than 24 hours without charging them.

But because what [authorities] are doing seems to be unregulated‚ we cannot say for sure for how long they will maintain the status quo‚" said Lasseko. She said that this was an obvious intimidation tactic used by the Tanzanian authorities to repress the detainees' right to justice‚ because they had been given the agenda of the meeting and the minutes of the strategy consultation – which included the fact that the lawyers intend to challenge the decision to ban the centre and the distribution of lubricants.

According to Lasseko‚ the South Africans were arrested in the Peacock Hotel in Dar es Salaam by Tanzanian police on Tuesday last week for a few hours before being granted bail‚ and had to report every morning to the central police station.

But upon their arrival on Friday‚ they were immediately arrested‚ and their passports were taken away.

The South African Human Rights Commission and the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) had yet to comment at the time of publication. Dirco has referred all queries to the SA embassy in Tanzania.

The EFF calls for the immediate release of Sibongile Ndashe and 12 others who were arrested by the Tanzanian police for holding a meeting. Sibongile Ndashe who is a human rights lawyer and activist held a meeting with other activists and defenders to discuss ways of challenging Tanzanian authorities to allow the importation of health services to HIV patients. The Tanzanian authorities however, raided their meeting arresting them under the pretext that they were promoting homosexuality.

It is therefore groundless for them to hold these human rights activists in prison, deny them a bail, and pretend to be a democracy. In essence they are violating what is a human right.

The EFF will write to the Tanzanian authorities to demand the end of this injustice.

Please be informed of the following:

1. Tanzania is a homosexuality free country. Tanzania is a God fearing State. To us, God comes First.

2. For over a year now, the Government has been so patient with the Community Health Education Services and Advocacy (CHESA) and its operations in the country. Initially, the Authorities thought CHASE would change, but unfortunately that has not been the case.

3. It has been proved beyond reasonable doubt that CHASE is promoting HOMOSEXUALITY in Tanzania. The Authorities have all the information, including funding agencies, advocacy teams, undercover staff (national and foreigners), areas of operation, e.t.c. We are aware of all the meetings/seminars/workshops which have been conducted in several locations across the country with the intention to promote homosexuality.

4. All the homosexuals, HOMOSEXUALITY supporters and perpetrators will certainly have no more room for breathing in this country, please MARK MY WORDS.

5. Whether you call it dictatorship or not, unfortunately its time now to get rid of all your immoral behaviors in Tanzania.

May God bless Africa, May God bless Tanzania
