Fatma Karume: Shein not Zanzibar legitimate president

The granddaughter of the first Zanzibar president, Sheikh Abeid Amani Karume has condemned the Zanzibar Electoral commission for declaring Dk. Alli Mohammed Shein as Zanzibar president.

Fatma Amani Abeid Karume, mtoto wa kwanza wa rais mstaafu, Amani Abeid Karume amesema, “Dk. Shein, siyo kiongozi halali wa Zanzibar. Amewekwa madarakani na jeshi na kinyume na Katiba na taratibu za nchi.”

She says Alli Shein was installed with intimidation and by the military, therefore he’s not people’s president rather the president of the military.

According to the source. Karume, a constitutional lawyer was visibly angry when speaking with MwanaHALISi Online Wednesday, 2-days after Zanzibar election re-run.

“Zanzibar is not at peace, there is suspicious, hate and intimidation at works on the island,” she says. “CCM in the mainland is one creating problems by forcing islanders to accept leaders Zanzibari don’t want.”
