Tanzanian police fire teargas and water cannon on civilian protestors!


Sudanese police use batons to disperse demonstrators

Tanzanian police fired teargas and water cannon to disperse hundreds of opposition protesters marching in the commercial capital, Dar es Salaam, on Tuesday calling for a new constitution, police said.

There have been growing calls from opposition parties, religious leaders, civil society organisations, media and legal experts for a new constitution in Tanzania, which held disputed presidential elections in October.

Opposition leaders want to limit presidential powers, introduce electoral reforms and allow private candidates to run for parliament and president. Among their demands are a change the law to allow presidential results to be challenged in court and formation of an independent electoral commission.
