Dar es Salaam.  Chadema has said it will discuss the possibility of welcoming CUF secretary general Said Shariff Hamad to Tanzania’s main opposition party.

Chadema secretary general Vincent Mashinji told journalists here today, September 12, 2018, that they would heed to the advice of the party elders on the possibility of welcoming Mr Hamad.

"The party will discuss the matter and come up with a position. Our focus now is on the 2020 General Election," he said.

Chadema elders on Tuesday said that it was ready to accommodate Mr Hamad whose party was facing a leadership crisis.

"If he accepts our offer, he will be our flag-bearer in Zanzibar during the presidential election," said the leaders' chairman, Mr Hashim Juma.
