In Summary
  • Councillors from the ruling CCM party last week voted to impeach him.
  • Chaos ensued after councillors from the Opposition Chadema contested the decision.

Dar es Salaam. The fate of ‘ousted’ Dar es Salaam City Mayor Isaya Mwita still hangs in the balance after he found himself locked out of his office on Monday just days after a controversial impeachment vote.

Mr Mwita arrived at his office, located at Karimjee Hall, in the morning only to find out that the door locks had been changed.

Mr Mwita exuded disapproval at what had happened while promising that he would keep ‘fighting for his rights’.

Security persons in the area said they were acting on directives ‘from above’ that bar anyone from accessing the office.

“We are working on directives from our bosses and no one is allowed to access the area," said a security officer.

He, however, declined to get into the details and timeframe of the entry ‘ban’.
