Tanzanian firebrand opposition leader Tundu Lissu, who was shot by unknown gunmen in in Dar es Salaam last week, is still in critical but stable condition in hospital.

Chadema leader Freeman Mbowe, who visited Mr Lissu on Thursday, dismissed reports in a section of Tanzanian media that the life of the opposition party’s chief whip was in danger.

He said while the condition of the Singida MP has been fluctuating, he was on a recovery path, and that there was no cause for alarm.

STRICT CONDITIONS

Mr Lissu, he said, is able to speak and has been receiving visitors under strict conditions imposed on the hospital staff of The Nairobi Hospital.

Visitors, he said, had been limited because they want the lawmaker to have enough bed red as recommended by the medics.
