Tanzania: Human rights lawyer, activists arbitrarily held

, Index number: AFR 56/7335/2017

Thirteen health and human rights activists, including two South Africans and one Ugandan, have been detained by Tanzanian authorities. They were arrested during a consultative meeting to discuss the Tanzanian government’s decision to limit the provision of certain health services that it had previously provided. The 13 have been accused of ‘promoting homosexuality’ in Tanzania though they are yet to be formally charged.
