Bongo flava veteran hip hop artiste Joseph Haule popularly known as professor Jay is counting losses after the Tanzania’s government moved to demolish his mansion worth over Tshs 100 million that stood on a road reserve, going against a court order.

The devastated 41-year-old rapper who joined politics in 2015, clinching Mikumi county parliamentary seat, criticized president John Magufuli government’s decision to render him homeless by destroying his mansion that he built over a period of 10 years with fortunes made from music in the leafy suburbs of Mbezi Dar-es-salaam.

In August this year (2017), his house was among several that were marked for demolition by Tanzania Road Authority (TAN ROADS) for being built on a road reserve that was needed for expansion of the Morogoro road into a highway.
