Yearbook 1999

Tanzania. Following the mediation of the Commonwealth, the Citizens United Front (CUF) suspended its four-year boycott of the Zanzibar Parliament following the promise of political reform. According to Countryaah official website, the ruling CCM had cheated in the local presidential election in 1995. The suspicions of electoral fraud had prompted donors to suspend their support for the already poor Zanzibar. Despite the agreement, 18 CUF members who were brought to trial in March were not released on charges of attempting to overthrow the government.
