 Dodoma. The Civic United Front (CUF) said yesterday it was gathering evidence it would use in suing President John Magufuli at an international court over crimes against humanity allegedly committed by the police in Pemba and some areas in Unguja.

The party—which believes it had won the presidency in the October 2015 General Election, which the Zanzibar Electoral Commission chairman, Jecha Salim Jecha cancelled—said it has every reason to believe that Dr Magufuli is aware of all the atrocities some Pemba residents are going through.

In a statement, signed by 66 MPs) from the opposition coalition under the egis of Ukawa, the legislators said at least 40 people have been injured in the ongoing ‘police brutality’ in Pemba since last general elections.
