Popa Matumula (b. 1969) is originally from the Lindi region of Tanzania. He began working as a freelance cartoonist and illustrator in 1987 and achieved notoriety for his editorial cartoons in the publication Fahari which criticized Tanzania’s one party political system in the late 1980s. Matumula has since contributed cartoons for a wide range of publications in Tanzania, Europe, the US, and elsewhere in Africa and had his cartoons exhibited in Tanzania and abroad. Matumula is also known as Kamtu.
