Tanzanians went to the polls on October 28th for presidential and parliamentary elections, amid growing violence in its semi-autonomous Zanzibar archipelago and concerns over the negative impact of COVID-19 on the economy. President John Magufuli is widely expected to win over his rival, Tundu Lissu, and secure another five-year term as he pledged to continue major infrastructure works, including an expansion of Tanzania’s road and rail networks. However, there has been criticism from rights groups that the government harasses NGOs and abuses the power of the justice system. Tanzania expanded by an average 7% over the last four years and the government's projections point to economic growth of 5.5% in 2020 despite the coronavirus crisis. The World Bank sees growth of only 2.5%. source: National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) - Tanzania
