Hope for Tanzania

General Election

Published 18 October 2015

The general election will be held in Tanzania on October 25th. Everyone votes in their home area where they have registered so there will be a lot of journeys made in the days before and after the election. It will be the first time in the history of Tanzania that the opposition party has a realistic chance of being elected since the ruling CCM party has always been in power. This year it is different as one of the leading CCM politicians joined the opposition party and is the presidential candidate. It will be exciting for Martin and Elli Grosvenor to be in the country for this once in five year event. It is important that the country remains calm during the election and afterwards irrespective of which party is elected.
