Winner of Big Brother Africa 2014, Idris Sultan has reportedly been arrested because he laughed at a throwback photo of John Pombe Magufuli, the President of Tanzania.

Furthermore, Benedict Ishabakaki, his lawyer told BBC on Thursday, May 21, that Idris was accused of contravening the Cybercrimes Act 2015 against cyberbullying.

According to the law it states:

“A person shall not initiate or send any electronic communication using a computer system


to another person with the intent to coerce, intimidate, harass, or cause emotional damage.”

Furthermore, the lawyer said they are awaiting Idris arraignment and already in the police custody for two days now.

Ishabakaki said;

“They have not told him till now if he has broken any clause … but their questioning behavior is related to the video.

We hope he can be released on bail today. In short, the police claim Idris used the internet to harass the president.”

However, this isn’t the first time Idris gets arrest by the police.

In October 2019, they arrested him for photoshopping President John Pombe Magufuli.
