Event

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.

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.
