Aikande: Politics of Image or Image Strategy? CCM vs Opposition

[...] I think am moving towards observing through pictures and what I see more than reading whatever news media are writing on party politics or party leaders are saying.

CCM’s party secretariat has been on a “subtle” country tour meeting citizens, carrying out rallies, and engaging with them. The party General Secretary, Mr. A. Kinana has been busy out of office in the field talking to people on various issues. As I said, I don’t read much of what they tell people but I do look at the pictures. I must admit, I admire the pictures because I’ve seen him and other party secretariat staff taking the central rail train, building with people, farming with people using hoes, etc. Today, I peeped in Michuzi Blog and found pictures of them eating ugali on plastic plates and on benches with wananchi…

Now, let’s turn to our new “coalition of hope” (bringing several (major) opposition parties together) – UKAWA! So on Wednesday UKAWA had a rally in Moshi town.... click here to continue reading.

Wenye ulemavu waliotimuliwa Kariakoo wataka Serikali iwape mshahara wa 400,000/= kila mwezi

Watu wenye ulemavu waliotimuliwa kutoka Mtaa wa Kongo jijini Dar es Salaam waliandamana mwishoni mwa wiki hadi kwenye ofisi za Mkuu wa Mkoa huo wakidai malipo ya kiasi cha fedha, shilingi 400,000/= kila mwezi.

Watu hao waliofika hapo majira ya saa tatu asubuhi na kuwaacha na bumbuwazi wafanyakazi wa ofisi hizo, wamedai kufukuzwa kwao bila ya kuwapatia maeneo mbadala ya kufanyia shughuli zao za uchuuzi kumewasababisha wakose kipato cha kujikimu wao na familia zao.

Wakiongea na gazeti la The Guardian la Jumapili wamesema wameshindwa, mathalan, kulipia ada ya za shule kwa watoto wao na hivyo kuitaka Serikali ichukue jukumu la kuyaangalia maisha yao kwa kuwa ndiyo iliyowatimua wasifanye biashara wala kuwa ombaomba.

Mmoja wao aliilaumu Serikali kwa kuwatelekeza na kuwatumia tu kama mtaji wa kura nyakati za uchaguzi lakini huishia kuwasahau punde waingiapo madarakani, tofauti na nchi nyingine ambapo walemavu hupewa kipaumbele ili waweze kujitegemea.
