    Now we should address the circumstances which failed us as a Nation .There is no better time to tell ourselves the home truth than now. To say most Tanzanians have given up totally on any hope for a positive change is an understatement. We have reached the level where our citizens are getting blasphemous, and openly asking God why He seems to have abandoned us. The reason is not far-fetched. Our squalid condition has defied all logic. We are probably the only country that is retrogressing, while those countries that looked up to us for succour have since left us to wallow in our self-delusion of grandeur as the so-called Great and the most peaceful nation in Africa. Even the war-torn zones, where our gallant men and women laid down their lives for peace to rein are marching forward in steady progress, while we continue to make headline news for all the wrong reasons. A leader must worry about image.

    Unfortunately, Tanzania’s ruling party Chama cha Mapinduzi seems incapable, and unwilling, to prevent our descent into total chaos and destruction. All the blame must go to a leader who has demonstrated a lack of courage to take on the useless system that has kept Tanzania in this dangerous state of perpetual coma. We must move beyond polemics and seek various answers to the many questions plaguing our nation. Some of these solutions may appear drastic, but it should be known to all that we cannot cure cancer with Paracetamol. A leader must be a good doctor who can diagnose ailments and prescribe the right medication.

    If I were JK, I’ll promptly cure myself of the optical illusion being dangled before me by the sycophants in the party of incompetent people who are telling me I must run for another term in office 2010. These are characters who would say the same things to every leader now and in the future.

    He must remember that no one was more eminently qualified to rule forever than Nelson Mandela, but the great statesman chose to quit the stage while the ovation was loudest. He has continued to generate feverish attention from all over the world. Mandela has shown that it is not how long, it is how well. True leaders are those who possess the will to be different, the courage to dare, and not the timidity of maintaining the status quo. A ceremonial leader would always end up a tragic figure. A leader needs all the stamina in the world to tackle matters of state effectively.
    A leader must have a mission, and the vision to project it. A leader cannot be ambivalent. He must have a clear understanding of the issues at stake, and set his priorities from Day One. The president must step in powerfully and put a permanent end to this ding dong affair. A situation in which our streets are flooded with able-bodied youths who are not in school plus those who are not gainfully employed is too dangerous. These youths are the hopes of our future. A leader must protect the salt of the world.
    There must be continuity in government. Many investors are bewildered by the abrasive style of our governments. Each one comes with a new malady. This incurable habit is one of the reasons many investors have no confidence in erecting permanent structures on our soil. Many of the investors merely come to do business here and take the money out. A leader must imbue confidence.
    The few great Tanzanians who braved all odds to stay and invest at home are being humiliated left, right and center, as if there are no better ways to conflict resolution. Our industrialists have been ruined. The bankers are in disarray. The oil merchants are dying. The poor have lost hope

    He must surround himself with the right calibre of people who can operate on the same frequencies with him. The team determines whether a leader would fail or not. A leader must seek good disciples.

    The leadership vacuum being experienced in our country, shall definetely haunt our beloved Tanzania/Tanganyika for many years. That this is so is due to the fact that a lot of people of questionable character have been oppointed to key positions in our national life. That means, even if there were to be a change in the political leadership still this questionable characters who man the civil service, the judiciary, police,security and other state organs will still be a problem.

    JK is not a leader, worse still we have no PM either. This country is on auto pilot.

    Only two options, to take action and do something (refer Tunisia) or to remain speechless and cold.

    Comrades, Ben and Byendangwero you're truly blessed with wisdom - you're wiseguys.
    Lootocracy (nimependa phrase hii) and leadership vacuum are rushing us to the crashing tunnel.
    Worse still JK doesn't have time and interest to read your intelectual ideas!

    Thank you comrade....

    Honestly Looters are precipitating a very precarious situation.Some of people has been intimidated to the extent that they are comfortable with a PEACEFUL LOOTING other than accepting Change.We have been silent and romancing with uninterrupted looting for a series of years;Brainwashed by our leaders, putting us asmunder Dividing and looting with ease.We need to work out something

    In Nigeria people are crude and in Tanzania rulers are crude.

    The first problem we have is talent, we dont have enough talented leaders who want to solve problems. Magufuli is the only leader who is making decision based on results and not political climate.

    We need to reform the govermrnt. We need both political and practical solutions

    Political: Reform the govermrnt so as you can have elected officials in all level Wakuu wa Mkoa and Willaya should be elected in short term period of two years. This is going to eliminate those people who are not interested with the development instead of transfers to more developed areas. Leaders should be local.
    Practical Solution: Use consulting companies and Impliment Six Sigma and other Management standards to all levels of the goverment. No politics just solutions.

    We are accelerating towards a very wrong direction,almost a failed state

    Our fathers' dream for Tanzania was to establish a country that is united, strong and prosperous. A state based on the principles of democracy and social justice where sovereignty will belong to the people from whom government, through the country's constitution shall derive all its powers and authorities.
    A country, where the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government and the participation by the people in their government shall be ensured through one man one vote. Mwalimu J.K Nyerere,Edward sokoine,Rashid kawawa,Abdulrahman Babu,Karume,Oscar kambona May you all Rest In Peace,Amen
    These days We have got a society that fear Proffessionalism,we have been prepared to avoid intellectualism at any cost.I see no mechanism to change the attitude of the mass,i see no efforts in place to challenge the prevailing situation.

    Our expectation as youths is to build on the foundation of our fathers, a strong nation, where justice will be the basis of governance for the purpose of promoting national integration, while discrimination on the grounds of place of origin, sex, religion, status, ethic or linguistic affiliation will not be tolerated.
    Establishment of a state where trust in leadership shall be freely expressed without molestation, violence and process manipulation.

    Another expectation of our leaders is to hearness the resources of the nation and promote national prosperity to build an efficient, a dynamic and self-reliant economy for the common good of Tanzanian citizenry.

    Above all, where the welfare and security of all shall be the primary purpose of government

    Currently, the country is confronted with the negative effects of youth misuse for political gains, slowing economy, rapid inflation, troubled religious disturbances, nationwide perfunctory electricity, generation and supply with disappointed citizens and leadership losing legitimacy.
    JK and his Chama cha mapinduzi(CCM) is running the most unproductive government that has refused to yield discernible dividends of democracy except to those masquerading as politicians using the party's umbrella to cage the welfare of the people and detain democracy.
    He is running an unrehearsed administration ever bestowed on the country and has ever since assumption of office gone into profound dreamless slumber.

    hapo umetudanganya! Embu tupe mfano hao baba zetu walikuwa na hiyo dream? Tanzania haikuwa tayari kwa uhuru. Very few ppl had the education to run a country. Hata Nyerere mwenyewe alikuwa hawezi kuendesha nchi! Kama angekuwa na uwezo nchi isingerudi nyuma kimaendeleo!!!

    Well, tuangalie uchumi wa nchi. Baada ya kupata "ukombozi" Tanzania ilishuka kiuchumi! In other words hakuweza hata ku-maintain level ile ile ya maendeleo. Uliza watu waliokuwa watu wazima miaka ya late 70s na early 80, enzi za migao! Kuna watu wanatetea na kudai kwa sababu ya vita na oil shocks za 70s. Lakini kabla ya hapo (60s-70s) kulifanyika nini?
    Kenya ilituacha nyuma kwa sababu ya policies za huyu bwana! Watu waliopingana naye iliwabudu kukimbia nchi, mf Kambona. Wakati wa ukoloni Watz walipewa nafasi za kusoma kwenye shule nzuri na kujiendeleza. Pia kulikuwa na zile Commonwealth Scholarships ambazo wanafunzi waliweza kwenda kusoma bure katika nchi za Commonwealth.
    Mashirika ya Umma mengi sasa ivi ni skeletons tu zimebaki. Reli, Umeme tumeshindwa kuendesha, nk! Miji tumeshindwa kuiendeleza.
    For me, i believe people who were able to run the country were not given that opportunity.
    Pia usisahau kwa kiasi kikubwa yeye ndio amechangia kufikia hali tuliyopo leo - serikali isiyokuwa na true separation of powers. Wananchi kuwa waoga na kutojua haki zao.
    Lakini nampa heshima kwa kuweza kuleta Umoja!
    Ivi Nyerere alikuwa na qualities gani za kumfanya a good leader? (Maana mimi sioni hata moja)

    If the basis of being ready for independence was education then we would have never been ready for independence because the colonial powers structured the educational system, in fact the whole system, so that no natives were ready for self rule. Where did you expect people to get that education? From the people who wanted to rule over us forever??? We had no choice but to start from scratch and work with what we had.

    nadhani kuna haja ya kuangalia ishu ya education wakati wa colonial rule! kwangu mimi najua Uingereza na hata mataifa mengine yalikuwa yana open education system. Kwa mfano, Wafaransa waliwapa colonies zao the same rights kama citizens wa ufaransa. Ndio maana kuna writers wengi, nk wa enzi hizo huko waliokuwa educated in France. Uingereza iliruhusu watu kusoma kwao. Kwa mfano najua Mangi Mareale alisoma huko kwenye best schools. Sidhani kama walikuwa na mpango wa kung'ang'ania hayo makoloni moja kwa moja kama tunavyodhani. Kumbuka pia point ya Uingereza kupewa haya makoloni (kama Tanzania) baada ya vita vya kwanza vya dunia. Walikuwa ni kuyaangalia mpaka yatakapokuwa tayari kwa kujitawala.
    Leo Mtanzania anapata elimu ya kuweza kujikomboa? Kwa hali ilivyokuja kuwa, nadhani ni bora tungebaki ndani ya ukoloni.
