Tanzania: suspension of opposition member of parliament

Ned discusses the suspension of a popular opposition MP in Tanzania: “Following a decision to turn down Hon. Zitto Kabwe’ private motion to form a select committee to probe among other things Hon. Nazir Karamagi’s (Minister for Energy & Mineral) decision to sign a mining development agreement (MDA) with the Barrick Gold in London, England this past February, the parliament (through the speaker) suspended Hon. Kabwe from attending two consecutive sessions as of this past Tuesday.”
