The EastAfrican has learned that he is contemplating rejoining the ruling party.
Lowassa defected to Chadema in the run up to the 2015 general election.
His meeting with President Magufuli has angered the opposition, who are accusing Mr Lowassa of unilaterally deciding to meet the president at a time when they are busy fighting the president’s high-handed rule.
