The United States says it has placed visa restrictions on unnamed Tanzanian officials who it says were “responsible or complicit in undermining” the country’s election last year. A statement by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asserts that the officials contributed to the “downward trajectory of the country’s democracy” and that the U.S. “will not hesitate to take additional actions.” The Associated Press (AP) reports the October election in the East African country was marred by violence against opposition leaders, internet disruptions, and widespread allegations of vote-rigging, and the U.S. says the vote was “neither free nor fair.”
