The Turkish government accuses Mr Gulen, in exile in the United States, of being behind the failed coup in his country in July last year.
President Erdogan has been lobbying African countries to close or take over schools linked to the Muslim cleric.
In Tanzania, there are 11 Feza schools, considered among the best in the country, which are said to have ties to by Mr Gulen.
