Subject: Condemnation of Arbitrary Arrests, Abductions, and Suppression of Freedom of Speech.

Your Excellency President Samia Suluhu Hassan,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to express my deep concern and utter condemnation regarding the ongoing abductions of individuals who dare to dissent against your government. It is with great disappointment that I witness the erosion of democracy, the rule of law, and the blatant violation of human rights under your leadership.

Madam President, it is disheartening to witness the very principles that Tanzania holds dear being trampled upon by your administration. Freedom of speech, a fundamental pillar of any democratic society, is being ruthlessly raped under your watch. The abduction of individuals who dare to express their opinions clearly indicates your government’s intolerance towards dissent and a direct assault on the principles of democracy.

As a leader entrusted with the responsibility of upholding the values of democracy, it is your duty to protect and promote the rights of every citizen, regardless of their political beliefs or affiliations. The suppression of freedom of speech not only stifles the voices of those who seek to hold your government accountable but also undermines the very essence of a democratic society.

Madam President, I implore you to reflect upon the principles that Tanzania stands for – democracy, the rule of law, and respect for human rights. These principles are not mere words to be thrown around for political gain; they are the foundation upon which a just and inclusive society is built. It is imperative that you uphold these principles and ensure that every Tanzanian can exercise their right to freedom of speech without fear of abduction or persecution.

I urge you to take immediate action to put an end to these arbitrary arrests and create an environment where freedom of speech is not only protected but celebrated. It is through open dialogue, respect for differing opinions, and the free exchange of ideas that a nation can truly progress and thrive.

Madam President, I also want to remind you that, we, the people of Tanzania, will not be silenced. We will continue to speak out against injustice, corruption, and the erosion of our democratic values. We stand united in our determination to defend our rights and the rights of our fellow citizens. We will not be intimidated.

I beseech you to rise above the suppression of dissent and embrace the principles of democracy, the rule of law, and human rights. Only through such actions can Tanzania truly flourish and become a beacon of hope and progress in the global community.

Yours concerned,

Onesmo Mushi
