Abstract: Abstract The article explores the weaponization of identity and citizenship in Tanzania that is becoming increasingly authoritarian. It illustrates the types of discriminations that a citizen can face for not affiliating with the ruling political party, from unemployment to statelessness; even refugees escaping persecution can’t find refuge and are expelled in such a climate.
