#RightsMedia doc: #Tanzania ‘s #renegade #opposition MP

Chadema_logoPart 3: Godbless Lema was elected to parliament in Tanzania to represent the constituency of Arusha-Urban. Since his 2010 election, Lema has been arrested and charged several times by police, making him unable to fulfill his mandate. As an elected representative of Chadema (opposition party in Tanzania) Lema has been vocal in denouncing the government, accusing them of using the state apparatus to silence him and other members of his party.

In his spare time, the 36-year-old Lema works with his foundation to raise funds which help send local children to school who can otherwise not afford to go.
