President Magufuli caught up in MPs’ bids to change term limits
SUNDAY OCTOBER 8 2017


Tanzanian President John Magufuli. A political showdown is looming over presidential term limits.



In Summary

  • Chemba MP Juma Nkamia is next month expected to table a motion before Parliament to extend presidential terms from five to seven years, as is the case in Rwanda.
  • The law amendment is widely seen as a testing ground in favour of extending President John Magufuli’s tenure. He is currently serving his first term.
  • The opposition sees the moves by ruling party legislators as part of an attempt to set the agenda for the stalled Constitution review that was abandoned in the run up to the October 2015 election that saw President Magufuli succeed Jakaya Kikwete.
