‘Mandela’ of CCM defects and joins CCJ

From The Citizen Daily, Dar es Salaam

Another member of Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) has defected to the newly formed Chama Cha Jamii (CCJ).

Mr Sikutu Philipo Chibululu, who is popularly known as Mandela after being jailed over political issues, was seen walking around Mwanza city streets, introducing himself as a CCJ member.

His defection comes a few days after former Member of Parliament for Kishapu constituency in Shinyanga Region, Mr Fred Mpendazoe, joined the CCJ from CCM.

Mr Chibululu yesterday carried a big banner, written on both sides, everywhere he went to sell his new party.

The message on one side of the banner read in Kiswahili: ‘Sisi Julius Kambarage Nyerere ni chama cha kulinda na kutetea maslahi ya walio wengi nchini Tanzania’ which literally means ‘ours is a party meant for defending interests of the majority in Tanzania.’
