Tanzanian fiery opposition MP who was shot and severely injured by unknown gunmen last year is set to undergo his 19th surgery in Belgium.

Singida-East MP Tundu Lissu is slated to undergo the operation at the Leuven University Hospital in Gasthuisberg on March 14.


Unknown gunmen shot Mr Lissu several times as he headed to a meeting of the National Assembly in Dodoma on September 7, 2017.

The government of President John Magufuli, which Mr Lissu criticised, says it is still investigating the attack that was condemned by the international community.

Mr Lissu said on Saturday said he was informed by his medical team that another operation was deemed necessary to speed up recovery of his joints.
