Open letter to the President of Tanzania, John Magufuli

Mr. Deogratius Kilawe

Dear President John Pombe Magufuli,

Greetings of Peace!

It has been more than 210 days since you have been elected to become the 5th president of Tanzania. Since then a lot of things have been seen by different people in a different perspectives and different interests. Mr. President I sincerely congratulate you for being elected as the president of Tanzania who has a great passion to transform Tanzania into Middle class economy status by 2025, in line with our vision 2025 which was initiated by Our President HE. Benjamin Mkapa when he came into power in 1995-2005. I am writing this letter here in South Africa Illovo where I came to relax and get energy to write this important letter to you and our nation.

Mr President you came into power in this period of 4th Industrial revolution internet run every things in short we call it internet of things, in which technology can connect with anything. However our nation has not yet seen the totality of the 2nd Industrial revolution not to mention the 3rd and the current 4th Industrial revolution. What I have heard from you during your campaign is you want Tanzania of Industries which falls under the 2nd and 3rd Industrial revolution and is good for now because 3rd Industrial revolution is a very important stage so that as a nation we can enter into the 4th industrial revolution with confidence and in a practical way rather than what we have now. As for now we have a lot of IT guys in our nation but a lot of things they invent are not practical in our land because we haven’t utilized the 3rd stage of industrial revolution. I would like to briefly explain here as to what I do mean when I say 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Industrial revolution; The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production. The Second one used electric power to create mass production. The Third one used electronics and information technology to automate production. Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third, the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.

Mr. President I do not aim at discouraging or encouraging you but rather to give out an honest opinion of what I think is right, it is true that you have a very strong influence among low income people and poor people of Tanzania and other nations in Africa. This is the majority group of people in many Africa nations, and they can accept anything but we cannot ignore to consider and give the same attention to the elite groups of business community, political community, religious group and other elite members. This is very important because these groups have a strong influence on the low income and poor people in one way or another so it is wise for a leader to consider their interests too. As for now there is no doubt that you are one of the greatest African presidents who mean nothing but serious business.

Here is my suggestion as to what can be done to transform our nation rapidly:

1. My President , Our main problem is financial freedom. Most of people here in Tanzania are not economically free, the reality is we have more than 5600 USD millionaires in our nation but among them we only have less than 950 who are from the black indigenous community, the remaining ones are of the origin of other communities to include Indians, Chinese, Arab , white people and fellow black Africans. Mr. President this figure is really disturbing my mind as we have more than 50 million citizens but only black 950 of them are rich? Who make this decision? It’s very simple our own brothers and sister in decision making authority of the tender board. My request Mr. President is to come up with black empowerment program so that we can increase number of black USD millionaires, we are not happy to see all big towers in the city which do not belong to the majority citizen. I will give you an example of what’s happening in Tanzania now. More than 96% of the C.E.Os of big companies here at home are non-Tanzanians and remaining 4% are local Tanzania for big companies which they have invested very big money in, for our nation. In this kind of situation even if you promote entrepreneurship it’s very difficult to materialize because the one who dictate the economy are non-Tanzanians, at the end of the day all tenders go to foreigners and producing local millionaires will slow down due to the fact that decision makers and people who hold important data and information about the future of Tanzania are not locals. Mr. President the main problem here is our system we cannot produce leaders for big companies in Tanzania because we don’t have a proper system and plan as nation and as a nation we need to spend MORE MONEY on human capital development otherwise we will end up being slaves in our own nation. This is because it will not only kill entrepreneurship but also foreigners can easily to lie in tax information to our government.

2. Encourage and promote Tanzanians to go outside our nations and start retail business

If Tanzania wants to become an industrialized country we can achieve by sending out our people outside Tanzania so that they can start retail business with or without government support. The aim of this is to promote industrialization these people who are going out our nation will buy and order products from Tanzania and sell in the country where they live. Automatically our nation will start exporting in large quantities and production will go up as well as revenues and employment rate. Nations like India and China they have plenty of retailers around the world who automatically promote industrialization in India and China, even when we go back in our history UK,GERMAN ,SPAIN and others used to send out people outside so that they promote industrialized in their nations back home the same issue we can do it here in Tanzania so that we can achieve our dream to become industrialized nation.

3. Promote Intra-trade between Tanzanians and between other African countries

INTRA-TRADE BETWEEN AFRICANS: it complicates regional integration and is a primary reason why there is low intra-regional trade, which is between 10% and 12% of Africa’s total trade. Why? Because of Poor infrastructure,sophisticated protectionism policy beyond commitments. HOW ABOUT INTRA TRADE BETWEEN EUROPE? The rate is more than 84% currently and this enables EU members to keep profit within Europe more than €2800 Billion in 2013. Mr. President it is obvious that if we promote intra-trade between ourselves by practice we will keep profit and all revenues in our land. Let’s not look at the quality of our products produced by Tanzanians or Africans, other nations like India they started at the same point where we are today and letter quality started to improve after their business received more revenue from the their government to promote their locally made products. In the year TATA started their government decided to buy all cars from them even though the quality was very poor but after two years TATA’s revenues increased and they started improving quality and investing much in research and development. The same we can do it here in Tanzania let’s give local traders tenders and after they get money they will improve on quality as they produce more products.

4. Formation of Ministry of Small Business and entrepreneurship in Tanzania

Mr. President your dream is to have Tanzania of Industries [3rd and 4th Industrial revolution] how are we going to achieve this? Currently we have ministry of trade which deals with both small businesses and large businesses, this situation obviously add more problems to the existing problem, because small businesses will be ignored and big businesses will be given more attention by the ministry. I would suggest you open another ministry which will deals with these small businesses. Currently there are 3.1 million small and medium businesses in Tanzania owned by 2.7 million people. 54% of these businesses are in rural areas and women own 54%. Major sectors-Trade (55%), Services (30%) and Manufacturing (14%). According to statistics only 3.9% of all small businesses were formally registered under the Business Registrations and Licensing Agency (BRELA); of those unregistered, 96.4% were micro businesses, and 84.4% were classified as small businesses. Only 44.7% of small business owners reported that they kept financial records. Mr. President small business face a lot of problems like Financial illiteracy, lack of collateral, lack of record keeping, informality, banks take longer time to process the loan, strict regulations and lack of proper products for small businesses .As you stated in your campaigns you want to reduce poverty and industrialize Tanzania, this will be possible through forming a special ministry which focuses on this sector of small businesses so that they become big companies and this will help in understanding and solving problems of small business in Tanzania.

5. Ban the right to issue citizenship to non citizens;

Let it be like the United Arab of Emirates where everyone is welcome to come here work, live and stay on vacation but no one will get the right to become a citizenship of Tanzania. People misuse this issue and till today I didn’t see the tangible benefits of people who apply to become citizens of Tanzania. After they receive this right we can just cross check what they are bringing to our nation? Nothing. Rather if you research they are the ones who are benefiting instead of our nation.
6. Separation of two system Business and politics systems
Mr. President I hope you will understand very quickly because we are confused as nation to see the same person is a businessman and at the same time is a politician ie Member of Parliament, how? and why? This isn’t fair in business if your competitor is also a decision maker? What about serving people after election? No one can serve two lords at the same time in the world, we all have 24hours ,so if that is truth how do these ministers and MP’s who at the same time run their private businesses can dedicate their time to the citizens? And how about their efficiency? And that is why we see they use too much media to cover their weakness by doing a lot of PR to spread propaganda that they work hard and good for their people. Mr. President I request to separate this issue, let it be if you decide to become a businessmen/woman let it be or if you decide to become a politician let it be but you cannot be both otherwise you will break a law of Republic of Tanzania.

7. Education and Quality of our citizens

Mr. President the level of development of any nation is related to the level of quality of people who are in that nation. Mr. President as nation we have low level of development because of low quality human beings who are in our land while other nations are serious to produce quality people. Two years ago I told President Kikwete he can build all good infrastructures he want but after two years all of them will varnish and continue to circle into the same game of ignorance, and it’s good we have Kigamboni bridge ,DART, more roads but for quality of human capital we have all of these will varnish if we didn’t take serious measure to invest in improving quality of human beings we have in our nation. This issue Mr. president is URGENT not something to wait for Bunge and other issues to approve. What can you do Mr President on this? Instead of continuing to build a lot of infrustures first improve the quality of human beings in our land and the rest will be history because the best people will build and attract finance for infrustructures and development of our nations and also local people will start control our economy for our own benefits.

Mr. President currently in South Africa young people age between 15-35 years old are less skilled and equipped compare to their parents what does this imply? This is regression for young people and I can tell you we have the same situation though I don’t have data but it look similar to Tanzania, so if your generation Mr. John Magufuli is more competent than our generation then what will happen to our upcoming generation? This situation can be called things fall apart?

8. Gold as medium of Exchange no more notes in Tanzania and EAC

For any federation to flourish they need to do business to each other for each part to be happy, this is where medium of exchange comes into play, way back people used to do barter trade but due to influence from spiritual society and other groups gold came as a solution and become a medium of exchange till 18th when money replaced Gold as a medium of exchange, but till today money seem as not effective medium of exchange because it’s seem to favor those who introduced it in the world, only USA and European nations plus UK they are on the safe side what about others?

I have some reasons Mr President to advise you why we need Gold as medium of exchange and stopping using money:

1. Mr. President Africa is full of gold everywhere you go and this is our only competitive advantage in this world of Babylon , where African has been exploited too much through use of money as a medium of exchange.

2. People are too tied to still continue trading using Tsh they want USD, Pound or Euro comes from those who make this decision of introducing money as medium of exchange? For what reason? Is it for African benefit? NO NO NO Mr President It will reach a point where some people will start doing business through barter system because they see no one is taking action. The time is now Mr. President to take action.

3. Gold is not a man-made system, but the other system is man made for the benefit of the people who initiated that system. Gold we dig it from the surface whereby God blesses your location according to his wish. But since we started using money (Man-made system) it resulted into a lot of problems which need God’s blessing to sort it out like the economy in crisis etc.
4. Mr. President gold is portable and can be readily transported from place for exchange in trade.

Mr. President, I have plenty of information and ideas to share, many of which cannot be adequately elaborated in a letter as short as this. It will be my distinct pleasure to one day have coffee with you at the statehouse and talk at length and greater depth.

Yours sincerely,

Deogratius Kilawe

Hotuba ya Zitto Kabwe katika mkutano na wananchi uliofanyika Dar

Kiongozi Mkuu wa ACT WAZALENDO ambaye pia ni mbunge wa jimbo la Kigoma Mjini Mh ZITTO KABWE akiwahutubia mamia ya wakazi wa jiji la Dar es salaam katika mkutano wa hadhara uliofanyika katika viwanja vya Zakhiem Mbagala. Mkutano ambao ulikuwa na lengo la kuwaeleza watanzania hali halisi ya kile ambacho kimetokea katika bunge la Tanzania na kufanya Mbunge huyo na wenzake saba wa vyama vya upinzani kusimamishwa kuingia bungeni kwa vipindi tofauti.


Ndugu Wananchi,

Nawashukuru sana kwa kujitokeza kwenu kuitikia wito wetu wa kuja kutusikiliza. Tumewaita hapa ili kuwaeleza kinachoendelea katika nchi yetu hivi sasa na madhara makubwa yanayoweza kutokea iwapo hatutosimama kidete dhidi ya mbinu zozote za kufifiza demokrasia na misingi ya uwajibikaji katika nchi yetu.

Mwaka 2015 tulikwenda kwenye uchaguzi kuchagua madiwani, wabunge na Rais. Baada ya Uchaguzi kumalizika Serikali mpya iliundwa na Serikali za mitaa kuundwa. Nawapongeza wananchi wote kwa kuendesha zoezi la uchaguzi kwa amani na kuweka heshima ya nchi yetu mbele.

Baada ya uchaguzi tumeona viongozi wapya wakichukua hatua mbalimbali nzuri na mbaya, zenye kujenga na kubomoa, zenye kuimarisha demokrasia na zinazobomoa demokrasia. Tumeshuhudia maamuzi mengine ambayo yanatia hofu kwamba ingawa tunaona dhamira ya dhati ya kupambana na ufisadi, lakini pia tunaona mbinu za chini chini za kutokomeza demokrasia ya nchi yetu ambayo tumeijenga kwa jasho na damu.

Mkutano wetu wa leo utagusia baadhi ya maeneo ambayo tunadhani ni vihatarishi vya ustawi wa wananchi wetu na ambavyo lazima tuanze kuvipinga mapema sana kabla havijaota mizizi.

Ndugu Wananchi,

Baadhi ya maeneo tutakayozungumza leo ni pamoja na

· Wabunge kusimamishwa kazi za Bunge
· Maamuzi ya Serikali kuhusu Wanafunzi wa Chuo Kikuu cha Dodoma
· Hali ya Zanzibar
· Mwelekeo wa Bajeti ya Kwanza ya Serikali ya Rais Magufuli
· Tishio la Nchi kuelekea kwenye Utawala wa Imla wa MTU mmoja

Wabunge kusimamishwa Kazi

Ndugu Wananchi, mnamo tarehe 30 Mei 2016 Bunge la Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania chini ya Naibu Spika lilipitisha Azimio la Bunge la kuwasimamisha kazi wabunge 7 kwa vipindi mbalimbali. Wabunge 2 ndugu Esther Bulaya na ndugu Tundu Lissu walisimamishwa Mikutano miwili ya Bunge, Wabunge 4, ndugu Halima Mdee, Ndugu Pauline Gekul, Ndugu Godbless Lema na mimi ninayezungumza nanyi walisimamishwa mkutano mmoja huu unaoendelea wa Bajeti na mbunge mmoja ndg John Heche Suguta amesimamishwa vikao 10 vya mkutano huu wa tatu unaoendelea.

Sababu iliyoelezwa na Bunge ni kwamba wabunge hawa walifanya fujo siku ya tarehe 27 Januari 2016 kufuatia hoja niliyoitoa Bungeni ya kutaka mjadala kuhusu sababu za hovyo za uongo zilizotolewa na Serikali kuhusu uamuzi wa kuzuia Shirika la Utangazaji la Taifa ( TBC ) na televisheni binafsi nyengine kuonyesha moja kwa moja mikutano ya Bunge.

Ndugu Wananchi,

Mimi binafsi pamoja na wabunge wengine 6 hatukufanya fujo yeyote ndani ya Bunge. Kosa letu kubwa ni kutaka kuhoji maamuzi ya Serikali ambayo kwa maoni yetu hayana msingi wowote. Serikali inasema ninyi Wananchi hamfanyi kazi kwa sababu Bunge linaonyeshwa wakati wa kazi. Hata hivyo Serikali hiyo hiyo inatwambia kuwa katika kipindi cha miaka 10 iliyopita uchumi wa Tanzania ulikua kutoka tshs 16 trilioni mwaka 2005 mpaka tshs 99 trilioni mwaka 2015.

Kipindi chote hiki Bunge lilikuwa linaonyeshwa moja kwa moja na televisheni ya Taifa na televisheni ya StarTV. Kama mngekuwa hamfanyi kazi Uchumi usingekua kwa kiwango hicho cha asilimia 600 ndani ya mwaka mmoja wa uongozi wa Rais Jakaya Kikwete. Utawala wa Rais John Magufuli unataka kutuaminisha kuwa ukiwa na Bunge ‘live’ watu hawafanyi kazi lakini uongozi uliopita umedhihirisha kwa ushahidi kuwa ukipanua demokrasia na kuwaonyesha wananchi kila kinachoendelea Bungeni uwezo wa kazi unaongezeka na uwezo wa wananchi kuwajibisha viongozi wao unaongezeka.

Hivyo Serikali kuamua kuficha Bunge ni mbinu za kuendesha Serikali kwenye giza ili kufanya maamuzi ambayo baadaye ionekane Serikali tu au Rais tu ndiye mfanya kazi. Ndio maana mikutano yote ya Rais anapohutubia huonyeshwa moja kwa moja lakini sio Bunge.

Ndugu Wananchi,

Wabunge wamesimamishwa kwa sababu ya kukataa Bunge kuendeshwa kwenye giza. Wabunge waliosimamishwa walisimama kidete kuhoji sababu za Serikali kufikia maamuzi hayo. Walitaka kujua kwanini Serikali imekuwa kigeugeu kwa kubadilisha badilisha sababu zake za kuzuia matangazo ya moja kwa moja ya Bunge. Wakati mmoja Serikali ilisema sababu ni gharama, kama ni hivyo ni kwanini walizuia StarTV na AzamTV kuonyesha moja kwa moja? Ni dhahiri wananchi Serikali inataka kuendesha mambo yake kwa uficho kwa sababu kuna maamuzi inataka kufanya na haitaki wananchi mjue mapema maamuzi hayo. Serikali inaturudisha nyuma badala ya kwenda mbele.

Wananchi, wabunge waliosimamishwa ni wabunge wenye uwezo wa kujenga hoja. Kuna wengine wamebaki Bungeni wenye uwezo mkubwa tu wa kujenga hoja, lakini hawa saba waliosimishwa ni wabunge walijidhihirisha kwa muda mfupi kwa baadhi yao kama ndugu Heche, kwamba wanaweza kusimamia hoja zao bila woga. Swali la kujiuliza ni, tukio ambalo limetokea mwezi Januari ni kwanini lifanyiwe mwezi Juni tena wiki moja tu kabla ya Waziri wa Fedha kuwasilisha Bungeni Bajeti ya Serikali? Katika waliosimamishwa ni pamoja na Waziri Kivuli wa Fedha ndg. Halima Mdee na Waziri Kivuli wa zamani wa Fedha ambaye anazungumza nanyi leo.

Kuna nini katika hili? Nitawaeleza katika hoja ya Bajeti. Kimsingi Utawala wa Rais Magufuli umepanga kupandisha kodi za wananchi masikini na uliona uwepo wetu bungeni utatibua mipango yao. Rais na wenzake ndani ya CCM hawapendi kusikia hoja zinazowapinga, hawana uvumilivu wa kukosolewa na hivyo walipanga kuhakikisha kuwa baadhi yetu hatutakuwepo kwenye mjadala wa Bajeti ili kufanikisha malengo yao ya kufanya maamuzi yatakayowandamiza wananchi. Nitaeleza vizuri hili baada ya muda kidogo.

Hivyo nataka Watanzania wajue kuwa kusimamishwa kwetu ni ajenda maalumu ya Serikali ya Rais Magufuli kufunika mjadala wa Bajeti kwa sababu anajua kuwa tunajua wanachotaka kufanya dhidi ya mafukara wa nchi yetu. Sisi hatutakaa kimya, tutatumia wenzetu waliopo Bungeni kuyasema haya na pia tutazungumza na wananchi kuwaeleza pia. Tutatumia mikutano yetu mbalimbali bila kujali itikadi za vyama vyetu kuhakikisha kuwa Wananchi wanajua kila kinachoendelea na kuwataka kuunganisha nguvu kukataa udikteta unaonyemelea nchi yetu.

Wanafunzi 7800 kufukuzwa Chuo Kikuu Cha Dodoma

Ndugu Wananchi, mmesikia sakata la Wanafunzi wa Chuo Kikuu cha Dodoma waliokuwa wanasomea programu maalumu ya ualimu wa Sayansi. Hawa ni watoto wa Watanzania masikini waliokubali kuacha kwenda A levels na kukubali kusomea diploma ya Ualimu ili wakawafundishe watoto wa masikini wenzao.

Wanafunzi hawa hawakuanzisha wao program hii, ilianzishwa na Serikali na kupitishwa na Baraza la Mawaziri ambalo Rais Magufuli alikuwa mjumbe na alishiriki kikao hicho kwa mujibu wa kumbukumbu za Baraza la Mawaziri. Rais Magufuli hakupinga mpango huu na aliubariki kama wenzao walivyofanya na kuanza kutekelezwa. Lengo na program hii ni kuondoa tatizo la walimu wa masomo ya Sayansi. Tanzania ina uhaba wa walimu wa Sayansi 26,000 na tukienda kwa utaratibu wa kawaida tutahitaji miaka 20 kuziba pengo hilo.

Program hii ilianzishwa ili kuziba pengo hili kwa muda mfupi na vijana waliitikia wito huu wa kizalendo kuhakikisha wadogo zao hawakosi walimu siku za usoni. Serikali ya awamu ya Tano imewafukuza vijana hawa 7800 kutoka chuoni ndani ya masaa 24 kwa makosa ambayo sio yao.
Wananchi, hatusemi kuwa program haikuwa na kosoro. Zilikuwepo ikiwemo kudahili wanafunzi wengi zaidi ya ilivyotarajiwa na kudahili wanafunzi 133 hivi hivi kati ya 7800 ambao walikuwa na daraja la nne katika masomo yao. Lakini aliyedahili sio watoto hawa bali ni Serikali yenyewe, kwanini waadhibiwe watoto?

Bunge lilipotaka kujadili hoja hii au hata kuipeleka kwenye kamati ya Bunge kuifanyia uchunguzi na kutoa mapendekezo Naibu Spika alizuia hoja ya mbunge Joshua Nasari bila sababu za msingi.

Wabunge wote bila kujali vyama vyao walitaka hoja ijadiliwe ni kuweza kupata majawabu. Mbona wakati wa Uongozi wa awamu ya 4 tulijadili hoja ya mgomo wa madaktari na kisha kupelekwa kwenye kamati ya husika ya bunge kupata suluhisho la kudumu? Kwanini Utawala wa Rais Magufuli hautaki Bunge lifanye kazi yake? Mbona yeye Rais kaenda kujadili jambo hilo huko Chuo Kikuu mlimani?

Ndugu wananchi

Rais Magufuli anafikia kuita watoto wetu vilaza? Rais huyu anayesema yeye ni Rais wa masikini anaita watoto wa masikini vilaza. Vijana hawa Wazalendo waliojitoa muhanga kuacha kwenda kidato cha Tano ili wasome kuwa Walimu na kulea kizazi kijacho Rais wao anawaita vilaza.

Rais sifa zimempanda kichwani. Rais Magufuli hana budi kuwaomba radhi vijana hawa na wazazi wao, Rais ni Mwalimu, anajua madhara ya kisaikolojia kufuatia maneno aliyoyasema. Ni sawa na Jenerali wa Jeshi anayetukana askari wake waliomstari wa mbele.

Hata Baba wa Taifa hakuthubutu kamwe kuita wanafunzi vilaza hata kama walimuudhi kiasi gani. Rais Magufuli anaongea mno, sio sawa kwa Kiongozi. Rais ajue kuweka akiba ya maneno. Yeye ni Kiongozi wa wote, wenye akili na vilaza. Yeye anapaswa kuwa wa mwisho kuongea ili watu waweze kukataa rufaa kwake. Yeye akishaongea wananchi ‘aggrieved’ waende kwa nani? Waende kwa mungu?
Tunamtaka Rais awarudishe wanafunzi Chuoni mara moja na wale wanafunzi ambao itaonekana hawakuingia kwenye program kihalali waondolewe badala ya kuadhibu watoto wote kwa makosa ya wachache ambao asilimia 5 tu ya wote. Makosa madogo ni mambo ya kawaida katika Jamii. Yeye Rais ni mfano mzuri wa hili kwani naye mbona aliteua Waziri mlevi na kurekebisha kwa kumfukuza peke yake, mbona hakufukuza Baraza zima la mawaziri kwa ulevi wa Waziri mmoja?


Ndugu Wananchi mnajua mara baada ya uchaguzi mkuu wa Zanzibar kufutwa chama chetu kiliweka msimamo wa wazi kwamba kinatambua ushindi wa Maalim Seif Sharif Hamad kama Rais aliyechaguliwa na Wazanzibari na anayepaswa kula kiapo na kuunda Serikali ya Umoja wa Kitaifa. Tuliandika pia masuala 10 muhimu kwa Rais kuyafanyia kazi na moja ya jambo tulilomtaka Rais Magufuli kufanyia kazi ni suala la demokrasia ya Zanzibar.

Rais hakusikia wito wetu na aliruhusu ufutwaji usio halali kisiasa wala kisheria wa uchaguzi mkuu wa Zanzibar wa Oktoba 25, 2015. Tunarudia kusisitiza kuwa Chama chetu cha ACT Wazalendo hakiutambui uchaguzi wa marudio wa Zanzibar uliofanyika mwezi Machi mwaka 2016 na matokeo yake yote yaliyofanyika.

Kwa maana hiyo hatutambui Baraza la Wawakilishi la Zanzibar, Baraza la Mapinduzi la Zanzibar na Rais wa Zanzibar.

Ndugu Wananchi,

Hivi karibuni kumekuwa na kuongezeka kwa sintofahamu huko Zanzibar kufuatia Mgombea Urais aliyeshinda na kunyanganywa ushindi wake kwenda kwa wananchi kuzungumza nao. Hali hii imepelekea jeshi la polisi kumhoji Maalim Seif na siku mbili baadaye Dkt. Shein kutamka kuwa hamwogopi Maalim Seif kwa sababu hana vifaru na mizinga.

Tunalaani kauli hii ya Dkt. Shein ya kutisha kwa vifaru na mizinga. Kamwe huwezi kuzima haki za Wananchi kwa vifaru na mizinga. Dkt Shein akumbuke kuwa Sultan alikuwa na jeshi, vifaru na mizinga na ulinzi wa Dola kubwa kama Uingereza lakini aliangushwa na wananchi wa Zanzibar mwaka 1964.

Dkt Shein akumbuke kuwa nchi kadhaa duniani zilikuwa na madikteta wenye vifaru na mizinga lakini waliondoka. Dkt Shein afute kauli yake hii na kuacha vitisho badala yake aanze mchakato wa kupata maridhiano ya jamii ya Zanzibar. Hatutaki kurithi damu, tunataka kurithi nchi yenye amani, haki na demokrasia.

Ndugu Wananchi

Sisi ACT Wazalendo, tunajua hali mbaya ya kisiasa iliyopo Zanzibar na mkwamo uliopo hivi sasa. Hata hivyo ni lazima tupate jawabu kupitia sanduku la kura. Tunapendekeza kuwa Vyama vikuu vya siasa Zanzibar vikubali ‘kufa kidogo’ yaani ‘to die a little’ kwa vyote kukubali kuwa Uchaguzi wa Mwaka 2015 na ule wa mwaka 2016 zilikuwa batili, zifutwe na Uchaguzi Mkuu mpya uitishwe.

Uchaguzi huo utanguliwe na Serikali ya Mpito itakayohusisha vyama vyote vya siasa na baadhi ya wanajamii wanaoheshimika na Wazanzibari wote ili kujenga kuaminiana. Tuandhani hii itatupa nusra kwa Zanzibar.

Tunawaomba Wazanzibari watumie mwezi mtukufu wa Ramadhani kutafakari maoni haya na wote kwa pamoja baada ya Ramadhani kuja na jawabu ya hali ya kisiasa. Tunatamani Zanzibari irudi kwenye hali ya kawaida na ishamiri. Zanzibar ikiingia kwenye mtafuruku Tanzania nzima itakuwa kwenye mtafaruku.

Ndugu Wananchi

Ni dhahiri kuwa Rais Magufuli ameshindwa kutoa uongozi kwenye suala hili na hivyo ni wajibu wa Wazanzibari wenyewe kukaa na kupata mwafaka wa kijamii na kusonga mbele.

Bajeti ya 2016/17

Wananchi, kuanzia tarehe 8 mwezi Juni 2016 Bunge litakuwa kwenye mjadala wa Bajeti ya kwanza ya Serikali ya Rais Magufuli. Rais ameleta mapendekezo ya Bajeti ya shilingi 29.5 trilioni. Katika makadirio haya vyanzo vya ndani ni shilingi 18.5 trilioni na misaada ni shilingi 3.6 trilioni. Serikali inatarajiwa kukopa jumla ya shilingi 7.4 trilioni. Mwaka 2015/16 Serikali ilitarajiwa kukusanya jumla ya shilingi 13.8 trilioni, hivyo ndani ya mwaka mmoja wa fedha Utawala wa Rais Magufuli unataka kukusanya shilingi 4.7 trilioni zaidi sawa na ongezeko la asilimia 25. Kwa ufupi ni kwamba Serikali haina budi kuongeza kodi kwa kiwango cha asilimia 25 ili kuweza kutimiza malengo yake ya makusanyo.

Ndugu Wananchi

Mtakumbuka kuwa mara baada ya Rais Magufuli kuingia madarakani tulikuwa tunaelezwa kodi iliyokusanywa kila mwezi na tuliona wafanyabiashara wakikabwa koo kwa kukwepa kodi. Hata hivyo ongezeko la Makusanyo lilikuwa kwa miezi 2 tu ya Novemba na Disemba kwani kuanzia mwezi Janauri makusanyo yalianza kuendana na hali halisi ya uchumi wa nchi yetu na ndio maana mbwembwe za makusanyo hazisikiki tena hapa nchini. Ukweli ni kwamba Rais alikuwa anakusanya ‘arrears’ na hapakuwa na hapajakuwa na mbinu mpya za kukusanya mapato ya Serikali.

Maeneo muhimu yanayopoteza mapato kama vile makampuni ya nje kutumia mbinu za kihasibu kukwepa kodi hayajatazamwa kabisa na Rais na wasaidizi wake. Hivyo, Serikali imeamua kurudi kwa wanyonge kuwaminya na kodi ikianzia kuchukua kodi zote majengo kutoka kwenye Halmashauri zetu.

Kodi za majengo ndio chanzo kikuu cha mapato ya Halmashauri zetu za Miji. Manispaa na Majiji. Uamuzi wa Serikali kuchukua chanzo hiki cha mapato utapelekea Halmashauri zetu kushindwa kuzoa taka na hata kutoa huduma kwa wananchi.

Hata hivyo wananchi uamuzi huu ni kwa sababu Halmashauri nyingi za Miji zinaongozwa na vyama vya Upinzani kama vile Manispaa ya Kigoma Ujiji, Manispaa ya Iringa, Arusha jiji, Ilala, Kinondoni, Mbeya Jiji nk. Utawala wa Rais Magufuli unataka kuhakikisha kuwa Manispaa zinaoongozwa na vyama vya upinzani zinashindwa kutoa huduma. Duniani kote kodi za majengo hukusanywa na Serikali za Mitaa. Katika Bajeti ya mwaka huu kodi hizi zitaongezwa maradufu.

Wananchi, Serikali inatarajia kupandisha ushuru kwenye soda, vilevi na sigara pia kwa mujibu wa vitabu vya Bajeti vilivyogawiwa kwa wabunge. Hata kodi kwenye gharama za kupiga simu zitaongezwa kwa zaidi ya asilimia 10. Eneo la ushuru peke yake Serikali inataka kukusanya shilingi 1.2 trilioni kutoka shilingi bilioni 900 za mwaka uliopita. Hii ni nyongeza ya shilingi 300 bilioni zaidi kutoka Bajeti ya mwaka 2015/16.

Maeneo haya mawili peke yake ( kodi za majengo na ushuru wa bidhaa ) yataongezewa kodi kiwango cha kuumiza sana wananchi wa kawaida. Hii ndio sababu Serikali imefukuza baadhi ya wabunge mahiri bungeni ili kulainisha upitishwaji wao wa viwango hivi vya kodi. Hata hivyo tutatumia wabunge waliobakia Bungeni kuhakikisha kuwa kodi kwa wananchi masikini haziongezwi kiholela.

Wananchi, sisi tunaamini kuwa Bajeti ya shilingi 29.5 trilioni ya Utawala wa Magufuli sio bajeti halisi kwani makadirio yao hayazingatii ukuaji wa uchumi na yana lengo la kuchukua fedha kutoka kwa wananchi kupeleka Serikali jambo ambalo litadidimiza uchumi wa nchi yetu.

Tishio la Demokrasia

Wananchi jambo la mwisho ambalo ninataka kuwaeleza ni tishio lililopo mbele yetu dhidi ya demokrasia ya vyama vingi. Hatua mbalimbali ambazo Utawala wa Magufuli unachukua ni ishara ya kutengeneza utawala wa imla. Rais ndiye anayejua kila kitu na ndiye anayeamua kila kitu. Hii ni hatari sana kwa nchi yetu na ni lazima kuchukua hatua mahususi kumkatalia Rais mwanzoni kabisa ili asizoee.

Tunarudia kuwa tulimwunga mkono toka mwanzo katika vita dhidi ya ufisadi kwani ni vita muhimu na lazima ipiganwe bila kujali itikadi za vyama. Hakuna namna unaweza kumlaumu Rais anapochukua hatua za kusafisha uvundo katika nchi. Tutaendelea kumwunga mkono katika eneo hilo.

Wananchi, hata hivyo Rais anatia hofu mno katika ujenzi wa mfumo wa uwajibikaji. Tanzania ina vyombo vya kuimarisha uwajibikaji ikiwemo Bunge la Ofisi ya Ukaguzi ya Taifa. Rais anataka kupigana dhidi ya ufisadi nje ya mfumo jambo ambalo ni la hatari sana kwa nchi kwani akitoka yeye tutaanza upya. Inawezekanaje Kiongozi anayepambana na rushwa akavunja nguvu ofisi ya ukaguzi ya Taifa kwa kumnyima Bajeti CAG?

Ndugu Wananchi

Rais amediriki hata kuvunja Katiba na sheria ya ukaguzi kwani Bajeti ya CAG haipangwi na Serikali bali hupangwa na Kamati ya Bunge. Hata hivyo Rais ameenda kinyume na sheria na badala yake kapanga mwenyewe Bajeti ya CAG? Toka lini mkaguliwa akapanga bajeti ya anayemkagua? Kamati ya Bunge ilipanga Bajeti ya tshs 69 bilioni kwa CAG lakini Serikali ( mkaguliwa ) imeipiga panga mpaka tshs 32 bilioni. Hii ni moja ya mfano dhahiri kabisa wa Serikali kuanza kuvunja vunja vyombo vya uwajibikaji.

Wananchi, hivi sasa kuna ukosefu wa Sukari nchini. Rais alisimama kwenye viringe vya siasa akatoa matamko makali kwamba kuna wafanyabiashara wameficha sukari na tukaonyeshwa sukari hiyo. Hata hivyo baada ya siku chache vyombo kama PCCB na TRA vikasema sukari ile ni halali. Inakuwaje Rais alitamka maneno yale bila ya kushauriana na vyombo? Ni dhahiri Rais anaongea tu na kutaka kujenga utawala wa imla. Leo bado kuna shida ya sukari na sukari ambayo serikali inasema iliagiza haionekani. Ipo wapi?

Wananchi Rais alikwenda Benki Kuu na kusema nusu ya wafanyakazi pale ni hewa. Mpaka leo hatujaona hao wafanyakazi hewa wa BoT wakielezwa. Rais alikwenda tu kwa kupata maneno ya kuokoteza barabarani na kutoa matamko ambayo yanashusha hadhi ya Benki lakini Rais anashindwa kutoka mbele kusema alikosea. Tunajenga mfumo mbaya sana wa uongozi wan chi.
Leo tunataka kumwambia Rais kuwa aongoze, asitawale. Rais awe na Utu na wananchi wake. Rais awe anasikiliza kwanza na kuchambua mambo kabla ya kusema chochote mbele ya hadhara. Rais awe wa mwisho kusema ili kama kuna rufaa watoe waseme kwake. Vinginevyo Rais anataka kujenga utawala wa imla na tutamkatalia wazi wazi.

Wananchi, nimalizie kwa kusema yafuatayo. Rais John Magufuli amesema kuwa yeye amejitoa muhanga kupambana na ufisadi. Sisi tunalazimika kujitoa muhanga kulinda demokrasia.
Ni imani yetu kuwa ufisadi utapigwa vita kikamilifu sio kwa kutegemea nia ya mtu mmoja bali kwa kuboresha na kutumia misingi ya demokrasia kwa kujenga taasisi madhubuti zitakazomaliza janga la ufisadi bila ya kutegemea nia ya Rais.

Akizungumza katika mkutano huo ambao umetumika kama uzinduzi wa harakati za kuzunguka nchi nzima kudai Democrasia ambayo ameeleza kuwa imeanza kuminywa na serikali ya awamu ya Tano Mbunge huyo amesema kuwa Chama cha ACT WAZALENDO kimesema wazi kuwa kitamuunga mkono Rais wa Tanzania Dk JOHN MAGUFULI katika harakati zake za kupambana na Rushwa lakini kitampinga kwa nguvu zote katika harakati zake za kuiminya Deocrasia ya nchi.

Amesema kuwa Hatua ya wabunge saba wa Bunge la Tanzania kusimamishwa kuingia bungeni kwa kisingizio kuwa walifanya fujo wakati wakidai haki ya watanzania kuliona bunge live ni kitendo ambacho kinaonyesha udhaifu mkubwa kwa serikali ambayo inajinasibu kuwa inapambana na wala Rushwa na mafisadi huku ikiogopa kuweka wazi mambo yake likiwemo Bunge kuonekana na wananchi wote kama ilivyokuwa awali na ndio maana chama chake kimeamua kuzuunguka nchi nzima kwa kusirikiana na vyama vingine vya upinzani na watanzania wote kupinga hali hiyo ya ukandamizwaji wa democrasia.

Mahakamani kwa ujumbe wa simu wa kutishia kuua

Mkazi wa Kijiji cha Misasi Mariamu Nestory (20) amefikishwa Mahakama ya Wilaya ya Misungwi mkoani Mwanza kujibu shtaka la kutoa lugha ya vitisho kwa njia ya simu.

Alinukuu ujumbe huyo akidai: “Ujiandae siku utakayoingia anga zangu, sali sala ya mwisho, ulisikia kisa cha Sengerema ndivyo nitakavyokufanya... ikishindikana kukuua kwa mikono yangu nitakuroga uwe kichaa.”

Hata hivyo, mshtakiwa huyo alikana shtaka.

Idrisa Kweweta aeleza sababu ya umaskini wetu Watanzania

Hatuwezi tukapiga hatua endelevu kama tunaamini umaskini wetu utaisha kwa kuwa pesa nyingi, hata kama tukiwa na fedha kila kona ya nyumba zetu bado umaskini ufakuwa unabisha hodi.

Japokuwa kina Karl Marx wanasema, "Njaa au umaskini ni zao la kutokuwa na mgawanyo sawa wa mali na ulimbikizaji wa mali kwa watu wachache (mabepari)," umaskini hutokana na uongozi na usimamizi mbovu ambao unawanyima umma fursa ya kutumia raslimali.

Nakubaliana nao katika usimamizi, lakini bado ninaamini umaskini ni zao la ukosefu wa maarifa, stadi na fikra ama mtazamo sahihi katika kupambanua changamoto, matatizo na majaribu kuwa potential.

Umaskini wetu Watanzania siyo kwa sababu hatuna mali au hatumiliki kitu (possession) ni kwa sababu hajui kitu, kwa maana pana tumekosa maarifa, stadi (njia bora za uzalishaji na usimamizi wa mali) na kutawaliwa na fikra au mitazamo ya kushindwa (deficit mindsets).

Mstari huu ndio unaotumika ktk utabakishaji wa nchi ulimwengu wa kwamba nani anajua ni nini na siyo nani anamiliki nini.

Narudia tena, umaskini wetu hatutoutibu kwa fedha, bali lazima tubadili fikra zetu ambazo zinatufanya tuamini pesa ndiyo kila kitu.

Ijumaa karimu
