On July 5, we reported that President Magufuli’s popularity had dropped, according to a survey conducted by TWAWEZA.

We have discovered that TWAWEZA may now be in troubles. TWAWEZA conducted a research project called ‘sauti za wananchi’ without informing (and receiving the approval from) the Tanzanian commission for science and technology (COSTECH).

If TWAWEZA fails to provide a compelling explanation for why it conducted unauthorized research, the relevant authority may take action against TWAWEZA.
