An MP’s house was demolished on Friday while he was away attending to his legislative duties, MondayBlues has learned.

Professor J, a popular Tanzanian rapper-turned-MP for Mikumi Mjini, was shocked to receive news that there were graders in his compound bringing his house down.

He described the demolition as “unlawful”.

“They came at 6pm and started demolishing the house without informing me and I find this unlawful,” he said of the action said to have been sanctioned because the house is on a road reserve.

“I have never suffered such a loss,” he added.
