Kauli ya ZADIA kuhusu na kufutwa matokeo ya Uchaguzi Mkuu Zanzibari 2015


Jumuiya ya Wazanzibari waishio nchini Marekani (ZADIA), imekuwa ikifuatilia kwa karibu na makini zaidi zoezi zima la Uchaguzi Mkuu visiwani Zanzibar na Tanzania kwa ujumla. 

Kwa kiasi kikubwa mchakato wa uchaguzi ulifanyika kwa njia za amani na utulivu. Hata hivyo ZADIA imeshtushwa mno na tamko la Mwenyekiti wa Tume ya Uchaguzi Zanzibar (ZEC) Mh. Jecha Salim Jecha la kutangaza kuufuta Uchaguzi Mkuu Zanzibar na matokeo yake.

Ama kwa hakika kitendo hicho hakikuwa cha busara na kinapelekea kurudisha nyuma maendeleao ya demokrasia Zanzibar, na vilevile hakiashirii mustakbali mwema kwa nchi yetu tuipendayo. Wazanzibari wameelezea maoni na matakwa yao kwenye visanduku vya kupigia kura, na maoni na matakwa yao hayo yanapaswa kusikilizwa na kuheshimiwa.

Kwa hivyo, ZADIA inatoa wito kwa Tume ya Taifa ya Uchaguzi Zanzibar, kumalizia mchakato mzima wa kuhesabu kura kwa majimbo yaliyobakia na kutoa matokeo ya mwisho ya Uchaguzi na kumtangaza mshindi ili kuiepusha Zanzibar yetu tuipendayo kuingia katika hali ya mtafaruku na mifarakano isiyokuwa na tija bali kuleta hasara.

ZADIA pia inaungana na jumuiya zote za kimataifa ambazo zimetoa msimamo wao juu ya uchaguzi wa Zanzibar, hasa ubalozi wa Marekani nchini Tanzania, ambao ni kiungo madhubuti kati ya Wazanzibari walioko Zanzibar na wenzao wanaoishi nchini Marekani.

Aidha, tunapenda kumkumbusha Rais wa Zanzibar Mheshimiwa Dakta Ali Mohammed Shein kuwa Wazanzibari walimpa amana kubwa ya kuwaongoza, na kwa hivyo ni wajibu wake kuienzi amana hiyo kwa kuchukuwa hatua za kiungwana za kuitoa Zanzibar kwenye mgando huu wa kisiasa. Hali hii iliyopo sasa inaleta wasiwasi miongoni mwa raia na imekua ikiathiri maisha yao ya kila siku, na ikiachwa kuendelea huenda ikaathiri pia mustakbali maisha yao kwa jumla.

ZADIA pia inamtolea wito Rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania na Amiri Jeshi Mkuu, Mheshimiwa Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete kutumia mamlaka yake aliyonayo kuhakikisha Zanzibar inatoka kwenye mkwamo huu wa kisiasa na kwamba anaondoka madarakani akiiacha Zanzibar ikiwa katika hali ya amani na utulivu. Kwa kufanya hivyo atauthibitishia ulimwengu kuwa kweli Tanzania ni kisima cha amani.

Na mwisho tunawaomba Wazanzibari, wapenzi wa Zanzibar, na Watanzania wote kwa ujumla popote pale walipo, wajitahidi kufanya mawasiliano na Jumuiya nyengine za Kimataifa ili ziingilie kati suala hili kabla nchi yetu haijaingia kwenye mtafaruku mkubwa wa kisiasa na kijamii na hata kupelekea kuhatarisha amani ya nchi yetu.

Mungu Ibariki, Zanzibar.

TAARIFA KWA VYOMBO VYA HABARI

Waangalizi kutoka Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki wameshangazwa na amani na utulivu uliokuwepo wakati wa kupiga kura.

Sisi kutoka Kenya tulishangaa, unakwenda kwenye kituo watu wako kimya, tunakupongeza pamoja na Chama Cha Mapinduzi” Ndugu Awori amemueleza Rais na kuongeza kuwa, “Tunatarajia kuwa uongozi mpya unaoingia madarakani utafuata nyayo zako” amesema.

Ndugu Awori amemueleza Rais kuwa katika shughuli zao za uangalizi, walitembelea vituo zaidi ya 12 kwa siku jijini Dar es Salaam na kote hali ilikuwa shwari na kueleza kuwa wamejifunza kitu kikubwa sana katika uchaguzi huu.

Watanzania kwa jadi yao ni watu wa amani na utulivu lakini pia kabla ya uchaguzi, Rais Kikwete aliweka wazi kuwa Serikali yake ina wajibu wa kulinda watu na mali zao na kuhakikisha watu wote wanashiriki katika kupata haki yao ya kupiga kura kwa amani, uhuru na utulivu bila kubughudhiwa na hilo ndiyo jambo kubwa na la msingi kwa Serikali yake.

Mapema leo asubuhi Rais Kikwete amehudhuria hafla ya kukabidhiwa vyeti kwa washindi wa uchaguzi Mkuu wa Mwaka huu Dkt. John Pombe Magufuli, Rais Mteule na Mama Samia Suluhu Hassan, Makamu wa Rais Mteule .

Hafla hiyo imehudhuriwa na Viongozi mbalimbali wa Vyama na Serikali pamoja na Viongozi wa Waangalizi wa Uchaguzi hapa nchini, Viongozi wa dini na watu mbalimbali.

Baadaye Rais Kikwete aliongoza mapokezi ya Rais Mteule katika Ofisi ndogo za CCM Lumumba ambako wanachama, mashabiki na wapenzi wa CCM walifika kumpokea na kumsalimia mgombea wao ambaye ameibuka mshindi wa Uchaguzi Mkuu wa mwaka 2015.

Shetani caught in Tanzania for ivory trafficking

Shetani behind bars in Tanzania
The law enforcement body responsible for the arrest of the “Queen of Ivory” earlier this month has officially arrested notorious elephant poacher Boniface Matthew Mariango, referred to by law enforcement officials as “Shetani” or “The Devil,” after a manhunt that lasted for over one year.

“Shetani” was arrested by the National and Transnational Serious Crimes Investigation Unit (NTSCIU) Task Force on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. He is Tanzania’s “Most Wanted” elephant poacher and ivory trafficker and directly responsible for the killing of thousands of elephants over the past years.

He has evaded arrest again and again, slipping away at least seven times, but this time we caught him, in a wild manhunt after informers reported his whereabouts in the outskirts of Dar.

The evidence we have against “Shetani” is crushing. He is the major supplier of weapons, ammunition and cars to poaching syndicates operating across the country and beyond.”

Statement by Commonwealth Election Observer Missions regarding Zanzibar 2015

The Election Observer Missions of the Commonwealth headed by His Excellency Dr Goodluck Jonathan, the Southern African Development Community (SADC), headed by the Honorable Oldemiro Baloi, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of the Republic of Mozambique, the African Union, headed by His Excellency Armando Guebuza, the European Union headed by Ms Judith Sargentini, observed the voting and counting processes across the United Republic of Tanzania on 25 October 2015.

We note with great concern the statement issued by the Chairman of the Zanzibar Electoral Commission, in which he nullified the Zanzibar elections.

We issued interim statements on 27 October, in which we all affirmed the credibility of the voting process.

We were pleased that the voting and counting took place in an atmosphere of peace, and that the people of Tanzania demonstrated a strong commitment to their democratic process by turning out in significant numbers to cast their vote.

We had commended the National Electoral Commission and the Zanzibar Electoral Commission for the competent and largely efficient manner in which they managed the electoral process on Election Day.

Our overall assessment of the voting and counting process at the polling stations, based on all our observations, was that it was conducted in a generally peaceful and organised manner, according to the procedures outlined in the laws of the United Republic of Tanzania and the laws of Zanzibar. We stand by this assessment.

We were conscious that the tabulation of results process was yet to conclude. We expressed the hope that all stakeholders, in particular, the political leadership in Zanzibar, would await the conclusion of that process in the spirit of national unity, reconciliation, peace and stability.

We now respectfully request the Zanzibar Electoral Commission to specify in which polling stations there were irregularities. We appeal to the ZEC to act with full transparency in its decision to nullify the elections. We urge the political leadership of Zanzibar to cast aside their differences, put the interest of the United Republic of Tanzania and Zanzibar first, and come together to find a speedy resolution to the issues that have led to this unfortunate development.

Democracy, peace and unity in Zanzibar are at stake.

The 2010 elections in Zanzibar ushered in a government of national unity which gave the people of Zanzibar hope for sustainable peace and democracy.

We urgently call on the leadership of Zanzibar, the United Republic of Tanzania, the ZEC, NEC and all stakeholders to live up to the expectations of the people.
