One of our correspondents sent us an update as to what’s happening in Tanzania.

These are his words: “Another insane decision. According to the Chairman of NEC, the annulment of votes in Zanzibar does not affect union presidential vote tallying. Now this is the crazy part of what he says. In the totals that NEC has provided, Magufuli is ahead of Lowassa by about a million votes. Out of these, about 300,000 votes are from Unguja (Zanzibar) where votes have been declared null and void. So what NEC is doing is counting votes which don’t exist. Surely international observers should step in and say something before this country explodes.”
