Tanzania counts votes as opposition claims fraud

Election workers prepare to count ballots following presidential and general elections, at a polling station in Dar es Salaam on October 25, 2015Votes were being counted Monday in what is expected to be Tanzania’s tightest election race ever, with the governing party facing the first major challenge to its dominance in decades. “There are allegations of electoral fraud,” Chadema spokesman Tumaini Makene told reporters late Sunday. John Magufuli of the long-ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) is seen as the narrow favourite to beat ex-prime minister Edward Lowassa, a CCM stalwart who recently defected to Chadema, which is heading a coalition of opposition parties.
