INASIKITISHA NA KUSHANGAZA SANA UNAWEZAJE KUMZUSHIA MWANADAMU MWENZAKO KIFO NA MABAYA MENGI. WANAOFANYA HIVI NI WATANZANIA WA KAWAIDA KAMA SISI AMBAO TULITAMANI WATUPE HABARI NA BURUDANI NA WAO WAPATE RIZIKI, LAKINI WAKO BIZE KUTUPOTOSHA NA HATA KUHARIBU MAJINA YETU," wrote Aslay.
The muhudumu singer also called on thee police to take action against Tanzania media outlets that have had the habit of spreading fake news online.
NAWAOMBA SANA @TCRA_TANZANIA WASIACHE KUZICHUKULIA HATUA ONLINE TV KAMA HAO #GEEMEDIA #MAUTAMU NA MAKANJANJA WENGINE WANAOPOTOSHA UMMA. TUNA IMANI NA NINYI TCRA, JESHI LA POLISI NA MAMLAKA NYINGINE. WATU KAMA HAWA WAKIACHWA, WANACHAFUA TASWIRA NZURI YA VYOMBO VINGINE VINAVYOFANYA KAZI KWA WELEDI. MIMI NAHESHIMU SANA WAANDISHI WOTE BILA KUJALI UKUBWA WA VYOMBO VYAO, LAKINI HAWA MAKANJANJA WACHUKULIWE HATUA NA KUTOKOMEZWA KABISA.
It looks like Tanzania have picked up that distasteful trend from Kenyans who have a habit of killing celebrities and politicians online.
