    An open letter to all Tanzanians
    From M. J. SABODO
    Dear my fellow countrymen
    When Mwalimu Nyerere nationalised properties under the gist of socialistic politics, I, M. J. Sabodo, gave him and some senior officials of his government copies of a book entitled SOCIALISM THAT WORKS authored by Lee Kwang, a minister in the Singapore government for 30 years. I call upon every Tanzanian to read this book.

    With no intention of humiliating former president Mzee Ali Hassan Mwinyi and Benjamini William Mkapa, I know for sure the duo were handpicked by Mwalimu Nyerere to lead Tanzania. Thank God both of them have proved to be among good leaders of Tanzania, and even more so the ruling party – CCM. But the fact remains they were appointees of Mwalimu.

    Now the big question is, who really planted the fourth phase President Hon. Jakaya Kikwete? The President has been steadfast in his five years in the office. Recalling his landslide victory, it was a show that many Tanzanians had faith in him.

    Now I am so surprised to see Hon. President on political platforms campaigning for corrupt leaders. Or put it this way those accused of corruption, with some with cases in court of law. You claim that they are hardworkers. This astounding and diluting the faith Tanzanians had in their government.

    HOW TO PROMOTE OUR ECONOMY
    Let me start with a living example.

    1. Tanzania and Singapore gained independence almost the same year. During that time the US dollar was equivalent to three dollars of Singapore, which is also equivalent to Tsh 7. After 40 years now the same US dollar is equivalent to 1.6 dollars of Singapore and also equivalent to Tsh 1,100. When Kikwete assumed powers the US dollar was equivalent to Tsh 950, but now one US dollar is equivalent to Tsh 1,525. Where are we heading to?
    2. The size of Singapore is not larger than Bagamoyo. It is a small country with a population of six million people compared to Tanzania’s 40 million.
    3. One region in India is capable of producing food that can satisfactorily feed a billion people of India. Tanzania still imports food for domestic consumption.
    4. We have about 800 square kms of seawaters,but our fishermen still use ancient means (canoes) for fishing.

    HOW CAN WE COMPARE OURSELVES?
    Mwalimu Nyerere’s nationalisation policy and Mkapa’s trade liberalisation policy have not brought us any success. The two policies have failed us. Just compare our currency to the dollar of Singapore. Because of the past scenarios I am calling upon Hon. Jakaya Kikwete to find the best way of supporting peasants and fisherman of Tanzania so that they are not drawn into hunger.

    CONCLUSION
    When I told Mwalimu that he was not a king but the president of Tanzania, he laughed. I don’t know what the feelings of Hon. Kikwete would be or other presidential hopefuls if I told them the same thing. It is better to speak the truth without hiding anything, because the truth is the same as the sunlight. It is impossible to be covered by anything.
    The opinions of Mzee Sabodo on this year’s October 31 general election:
    · If it happens you know the formula of your opponent, then the victory will be much easier for you. If you don’t know your opponent well and you still decide to clash with him, it is like going to war without knowing who your opponent is,
    · If it happens you know your opponent even without knowing his thinking, you can still fight him,
    · I’m not saying nor do I not believe that the opposition parties are an enemy of our country,
    · So an opposition party is not an enemy, but a good helper in contributing to the development of our nation,
    · We are aware that CCM has made blunders and is still making many more blunders,
    · There were shortcomings in the economic policies of the Mwalimu Nyerere during his administration,
    · There were unstable policies during the Ali Hassan Mwinyi’s government,
    · The third phase government of Benjamin Mkapa, on its part, out rightly ignored agriculture and the peasants of this country and instead it paid much attention to international issues, especially the North,
    · When Kikwete takes control of the nation again, I don’t what mistakes he is going to make again,
    · I would like to believe that he will support farmers and promote farming,
    · If it happens that a party makes mistakes, it must be corrected. That is a true democracy.
    · I do not mean there should not be opposition in the country. It must be there. But it must be a kind of opposition that can contribute to development and stand for the future of our nation,
    · England spent almost 200 years to create the opposition as it today – Labour and Tory parties,
    · India, for instance, despite 50 years of multiparty democracy, it is still unstable and does not have the desired unity. Things are still uncertain

    Long life Tanzania

    Ukisoma kwa makini hiyo barua, utaona Sabodo anajichanganya au hasemi ukweli moja kwa moja. Mwanzoni anataja udhaifu wa Kikwete kuwapigia kampeni watuhumiwa mwishoni anasema hajui Kikwete atafanya makosa gani. Anayasema haya wakati ametaja udhaifu na pia Kikwete ameshaongoza na mapungufu/makosa yake yanaonekana wazi.
    Hoja ya Upinzani alivyoiweka, si kweli kwamba anaamini kwenye upinzani. Saana anaonyesha upinzani kwake kuwa haujakomaa kutokana na mifano aliyoitoa. Hivyo bado anaamini kwenye CCM.
    Kwenye exchange rates ya Tshs against USD wakati Kikwete anachukua nchi si kweli ilikuwa 950/= bali ni roughly 1200.
    Ulinganishi wa Bagamoyo na ukubwa wa Singapore, si ulinganishi sahihi. Anasahau kuwa Singapore is the second populated country based on its size. Kwahiyo uhusiano wa population na size, then GDP ungekuwa ni fair comparison.
    Lakini pia nakubaliana na yeye kwamba matatizo ya Tanzania ni ya muda mrefu na yanahitaji vipaumbele vyenye kugusa maisha ya wengi.
    Mungu Ibariki Tanzania.

    I am very disappointed with the gaffer. He looks like a CCM apologist something that fails to capture the reality on ground.

    CCM is a massive failure and only those who condone impunity will still have faith in it. Unfortunately, he belongs to this optimistic group that wantonly fantasize CCM can overcome her internal contradictions. History is very unkind to CCM..look at UNIP, KANU among others.........internal reforms is a luxury of a stargazer...........................

    This gaffer seems to believe CCM is still not incorrigible while it is beyond correction. Only Chadema offers a brighter future for Tanzania. This writer was more critical of Nyerere but less so on Mwinyi and I find this surprising and implausible, and I am at a loss of his apocryphal narratives...........

    He lauds the existence of opposition but he still pines for CCM to be in that marooned aisle of chama tawala..........how pathetic and unaccountable that position is...........It is like in the Animal Farm where Orwellian principle states...................All animals are equal but some are more equal than others.......That is discrimination and presuming an air of CCM invincibility without constructive cause............

    Some of his expositions are totally laughable...................



    If he had given Nyerere and his servile disciples Singaporean panacea to our economical ills somewhere in the late sixties when the Singaporeans had not realized their pinnacle success how could Nyerere for that matter have presaged Singapore would have gone to be an economic tigress?

    Neither in his conclusions nor in his observations did he cite reasons why Singaporean did better than what we did garner, and whether that was a factor..............................He does not even tell us in a nutshell what was in that economic blueprint...................What a waste, to say the least, of my precious time to read this piece of amateurish gazunderer gushing out his personal encomiums in reference to his own jeremiad.............Should I say he is pompous or a liar? I leave to other readers to make that imminent conclusion..........................

    Singapore inashabihiana sana na Zanzibar, huku Malysia ikiwa ndio Tanganyika yao. Vilvile Singapore pamoja na kubarikiwa na Rais wa Kwanza Mahiri kama sisi lakini wao moja kwa moja walifuata mfumo wa ubepari ambao kutokana na umuhimu wake katika siasa za vita baridi basi waliweza kufaidika sana na mahusiano ya kibiashara na mataifa ya magharibi ikiwemo Uingereza lakini pia marekani walihakikisha kuwa Singapore inafanikiwa ili kushawishi wengine watamani uswahiba huo na kukana Urusi na Uchina....

    NAdhani hapo kwa Nyerere na Makosa yake hata Nyerere hilo alilikubali kuwa yeye hakuwa malaika, alikuwa na makosa yake ndio kama hayo anayoyaelezea Mr Sabodo, lakini ukipima makosa na Mazuri, utakuta makosa ni machache kuliko mazuri na hapo kiongozi anayefuata inampasa kuchukua yale mazuri na kurekebisaha yale mabovu, lakini kwa viongozi wote waliomfuata nyerere walikuwa wako bize kuchambua na kurekebisha yale mazuri,

    Haya maneno nilidhani yalisemwa mwaka 2005, sasa hivi leo 2010 na JK ameshakata tayri miaka 5,kama bado anadhani JK anaweza kuwa mwanamapinduzi ya kiuchumi basi huyu Mzee Sabodo naye ni delusional tu..huezi ukapata uongozi wenye uoni wakati upo bize kuimarisha utawala kwa gharama yeyote ile badala ya kuwatumikia wananchi. The fact kwamba CCM hawapo kwa maendeleo ya wananchi is evident ndio maana hawataki kuwashirikisha watu wengine wenye mawazo na mtizamo tofauti wa kisiasa kwenye serikali yao..ili kuleta mchanganyiko wa fikra. Kwa CCM, kushika hatamu is the end point..madaraka kwao ni kama goldmine..they won't let it go...they want to hit jackpot, and they have it in their hands..

    Huo ndi ukweli.

    Nadhani Sabodo ana kitu anataka kusema zaidi ya hapo ila anaogopa kumwagiwa ugali wake. So an opposition party is not an enemy, but a good helper in contributing to the development of our nation. Kumbe unalijua hilo, JK na Makamba wake hawalijui hilo hata kidogo. Tutafanya kama unavyoamini

    Congraduation Mr Sabodo!I do agree with your argument,especially on the issue of "So an opposition party is not an enemy, but a good helper in contributing to the development of our nation".Most of Tanzanians have had bad notion on the opposition wing.In reality,all Tanzanians, we are here to make sure that our country is excelling in various aspects of mankind's development.I know for sure still we have long way to go,to educate people like my friend MALARIA SUGU,so as to know opposition wing is not an enemy.
