Regional Police Commander Gilles Muroto said they have launched investigations into the shooting but preliminary reports show that people who attacked Mr Lissu were in a white Nissan vehicle.

Dodoma Regional Commissioner Jodarn Rugimbana said they have banned any gatherings in Dodoma Municipal.

“We also don’t want people to go to the hospital because the area is too small to accommodate many people.

“People should stay calm, go on with their activities and we will inform them if there is any development,” he said.

In the meantime, Chadema party has issued a statement condemning the attack.

“Chadema has received with great shock the report on the shooting of the Party chief legal counsel who is also Opposition Chief Whip in Parliament and Singida East MP, Tundu Antipus Lissu,” reads part of the statement.
