Joseph Mbilinyi, a former artist now an MP, raised the issue in parliament that the government was using secret agents to arrest people.
The news came weeks after another Bongo Flavour artist Ney wa Mitego was arrested for a song decrying the shrinking space for freedom of expression which was seen to be insulting President John Magufuli’s government.
He was later released following a public outcry and he was told to improve the song to include other ills that affect Tanzanians.
