The firebrand Singida East MP was airlifted to the Nairobi Hospital in the Kenyan capital on Thursday night after his condition worsened, amid concerns for his security.
The armed assault is the latest in a long line of incidents, which the Chadema leadership says, amounts to harassment and intimidation of opposition politicians and dissidents in Tanzania.
Kenyan lawyers and EU diplomats term it an attack on democracy.
