Zanzibar, élections 2020 : Stratégie de l’écrasement et de la terreur

Marie-Aude FOUÉRÉ. Mambo! Vol. XVII (5), 2020. Depuis le retour du multipartisme en 1992, aucune élection générale à Zanzibar n’avait connu un tel niveau d’intimidation brutale des électeurs par les forces de l’ordre, de violence physique envers l’opposition et de fraude flagrante que celles qui viennent de se tenir au mois d’octobre 2020.
