Police refute CCM hate speech claims

From The Citizen, Dar es Salaam

Police in Mwanza have dismissed claims by CCM the opposition Chadema has embarked on "provocative campaigning" ahead of the Busanda by-election on May 24.

CCM deputy secretary general Gorge Mkuchika last week alleged that a senior Chadema official, Mr Zitto Kabwe, had directed opposition supporters at a rally to burn the ruling party's flag.

But refuting the claims yesterday, acting regional police commander Elias Kalinga said campaigning for the by-election was going on "peacefully apart from a few cases of lawlessness."
