Local elections are scheduled throughout the country on Sunday, November 24. Political rallies are likely in the days leading up to the vote, notably in the capital Dar es Salam and other urban centers. Opposition protests are also possible as the Chadema opposition party stated it would boycott the election claiming most of its candidates were unfairly disqualified.
Heightened security measures and traffic disruptions should be anticipated around polling sites and political gatherings. Clashes between supporters of different political parties, as well as associated arrests, cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Tanzania are advised to monitor developments, avoid all public demonstrations and polling sites, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
