Recuperating Singida East MP (Chadema) Tundu Lissu said yesterday that he was homesick as he marks one year since surviving an “assassination” attempt in Dodoma.

Mr Lissu, who doubles as the opposition’s chief whip, was sprayed with 32 bullets out which 16 hit him when returning home after a parliamentary session.

Shortly after the attack, the firebrand politician was rushed to the Dodoma Referral Hospital before being airlifted to Nairobi in Kenya for further treatment.

After multiple surgical operations in Nairobi, Mr Lissu, who was critical of several government decisions, was flown to Belgium where he is still receiving treatment.

The legislator, who has so far undergone 21 surgeries, spoke exclusively to The Citizen on a wide range of issues, but stressed his eagerness to come back home and continue with political activities.

The Citizen: Tell us one thing that you feel about Tanzania and Tanzanians in general.

Lissu: All I can say is that I extremely miss Tanzania and I miss all Tanzanians.
