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.
