On a journey to Arusha from Dar es Salaam, one cannot avoid passing through Moshi town. This town is not very big but it has a beautiful scenario. It is very clean. One cannot see a piece of paper lying around. The gardens and pavements are very well-kept. You may think you are in another country, but still in Tanzania.

The question is why does Moshi succeed and Dar es Salaam fails? When we look at Moshi, we see that the town council is very firm on its rules and regulation so all the residents are aware of tidying their town.

Once a man who was on transit bought a voucher and after using it he threw it on the ground. After a few seconds, he was surrounded by two men in uniform and he was charged for the offence. He had to pay 5000/= and he was given a receipt!

 In Dar es Salaam such scenario are never seen. A person might have a shop along a road and in front of the shop there is a gutter full of dirty stinking water with flies buzzing along it.

 When you look at the residents of Dar es Salaam at a glance, they are well-groomed but when you go to their houses, the surroundings are life threatened! One cannot imagine an officer of a certain firm living in a house full furnished but the environment that surroundings it, it is horrible.

There are aged women sweeping along the city roads and on the highway, but this is not enough! We need clean pavements, well watered gardens; we need urine free walls (as this has become a chronic disease).

Speaking to an officer of the Kinondoni Municipality who did not what his name mentioned, said, “We have good strategies for the municipality, we are working on the mechanism to implement the strategy”. Such statement is very bitter. At first I thought he was trying to show me that he can use words like; strategy, mechanism and implementation, but later on I learned that these are the very same words used by many officials when they avoid answering a question which leads them to negativity of their duties.

I don’t think that Moshi used such theories in keeping their town clean. It is a matter of patriotism and the love of their town. They know that Moshi is theirs and they are proud of being there, so the matter to keep it clean does not base completely on strategies, mechanisms, and implementations. Those will follow after a committed will to beatify what is theirs.

 In the rural areas, people have a way to keep their litter. In their villages, soft litter is taken to their domestic gardens and left to turn into manure. There are no so many plastic bottles and the very few that are available are used to keep their domestic products, like milk, and honey like wise with glass bottles. Fallen leaves from trees are put in small growing trees or bushes and left for mulching. So it is very difficult to find litter lying around these areas. Even fruit peals are taken to goat and cattle.

It is a call upon stakeholders of Dar es Salaam to take a glance face of the city and act immediately for its hygiene. Soon the rainy seasons will commence and that means cholera and dysentery are around the corner as many people will lead their sewage into the streets pretending that it is rain water.Now the question is; where on earth rain water smells so badly!

Anytime right now the president shall form a cabinet of ministers. It is high time we reflect on some important issues that will take this nation a step further in development and that at the end of the day Tanzania are happy and satisfied with what they get.

We saw how the huge turn up of youths on election day was. This is an achievement. It means that now youths have woken up from the deep sleep of “letting others do for them” and acting on themselves fully.  although the is a challenge that not many youths had registered but I am sure in 2015 more will have already be register and the vibe will be great!

Despite the fact that NEC failed to perform its duties thoroughly,or whether they did that on purpose to favour a certain candidate, the outcome was of a very minute standard. I remember a certain EU election observer said, “how long does it take to add up the votes and announce the results as soon as possible!”

On looking at different political parties manifestoes we can see that each part expressed itself fully on what it would do if it got into power. Now that we know who the winner is, I think it would have been wisely for KIKWETE to join hands with those parties and build a better Tanzania. It is not good enough saying Tanzania is for us all while you are actually learning on your side only.

He once said that let us not fight for pillars, but wonderful enough he has shut all the pillar in his room! So how can he say that Tanzania is for all while he is not collaborating with other political parties using their election manifestoes to build a better Tanzania?

Another thing I always believe in listening to other people advises but I NEVER  allow them to decide for me. Tanzania has well-educated, full of knowledge people with a good reputation inside and outside Africa. So I don’t see why he doesn’t use those and look for foreigners to run our resources down? If it is a matter of capacity building we have experts right here to do so. what is needed is to recognise the and acknowledge them.

 Against all odds,I still have a bit of faith with President Kikwete and I believe if he “puts Tanzania first” then this country in the next five years it would have taken a step forward in education, health issues, manufacturing Industries, employment and infrastructure.

Sometimes I wonder how the world would have been if everyone had the same thoughts, visions, missions and views. Definitely it would have been very boring. likewise if all the political parties of Tanzania were the same with same policies and views, then there would have been no challenge at all.

Last Sunday was the election day. i was so pleased with the huge turn out of youths who went to vote. it was very encouraging. now it shows that some people have woken up from the heavy sleep and they want to be part of the change they want to see.

On the side of opposition candidates who have won parliamentary seats, it is also encouraging. now we shall see new young faces, full of determination and enthusiasm. now that old guy will stop picking on poor Kabwe, because there are more Kabwes in parliament. There shall be discipline and a voice of the voiceless. More transparency and openness is excepted and not just “yes,your honour, no your honour” style that was before!

In every game that you play, there has to be a winner and a looser. SO those who could not make it, may they accept the reality because when they were winning before, some were losers so now it is check mate!

I expect to see a lot in the coming parliamentary sessions and I also expect to see changes in most angles of development.

Last weekend, Sunday, a short saga occurred in Tanga whereby CCM members were to vacate in a dialogue of two parties, i.e. CHADEMA nad CUF.

The whole scenario took place whereby members of the opposition parties claimed that the chairman of CCM had forbidden CCM candidates to participate in any dialogue in the country.

wonderful enough the platform was crowded by CCM members something which made opposition members to stand bold and announce  that all members of CCM to vacate the area. Those CCM members who were present were; Ramadhani S. Kajumba, a secretary od of the Korogwe ward, Juma Dungumano and Elia Raphael.

The CHADEMA chairman said the representatives were members of CCM and he could not allow them into the dialogue because they did not bring their candidate so it was like they were spying on them.

the dialogue was prepared by an NGO called TASCO which is a network of many others in Tanga. David Chanyengo, a representative of the TASCO said that the aim of preparing such a dialogue was to get the citizens to ask questions to the candidates on their strategic plans for the development of their constituency.

After being in the southern highlands for the past week now Mziray’s campaign take a new direction. As from the 1st of October he shall be in the Lake zone, starting with Kigoma, Mwanza, Kagera, and finally in Mara.

While in the southern highlands, apart from sensitizing on health. education and employment, Mziray took a step further by saying that if he is elected a president of the united Republic of Tanzania, he shall select ministers from those who could not make it in presidency. He said, “i hold no grouch with anyone on the race, even Jakaya will be very potential in my cabinet of ministers.”

He went further saying his government will open a special jail to imprison those who are found guilty of UFISADI(Massive corruption like EPA). He will make sure they are dealt accordingly and pay for the loss they have contributed to the disintegration of the country’s economy.
