Tanzania: UK at Crossroads Over Aid to Dar es Salaam

Dar es Salaam, The UK government was under pressure on Saturday to review aid worth £200 million (about Sh 433.6 billion) to Tanzania in protest of the manner in which the Zanzibar election was conducted. A former Cabinet minister in the British government warned against "spraying money around" simply to ensure that Britain kept the United Nations target of spending 0.7 per cent of national income on overseas aid. The US and the European Union has accused the government for what they believed as undemocratic tendencies following the cancellation of Zanzibar October 25 General Election half way into counting and tallying of votes. The Zanzibar Electoral Commission (ZEC) said it nullified the election over 'massive irregularities' and announced new elections which were held on March 20.
