    ..instead of letting them enjoy their retirement in peace

    Retired national leaders deserve all respect

    Good top leadership is what this country has enjoyed since independence; there is no doubt about that. While tyrannies, looting and all forms of bad leadership have plagued some countries in the continent to the extent of causing massive public unrest – and a breach of the peace - Tanzanians have enjoyed unprecedented good governance.

    Tanzanians have all these years been endowed with good leaders whose dedication and commitment to set up conditions aimed at improving the welfare of the people is unquestionable. In fact their actions spoke and continue to speak louder than words.

    All these leaders made good their election pledges and left no stone unturned in the quest for fast people-centred development. They were upright leaders who were never corrupted by power in their entire terms in office. They abhorred all vices ranging from corruption to embezzlement of public funds.

    They instilled a sense of high leadership and financial discipline. Their excellent show at general elections underlined their acceptability. It is therefore disgusting to see some misguided people and a section of the media painting a negative picture of some retired national leaders to the extent of ridiculing them.

    This is very unfair to these leaders who sacrificed their time and energy to ensure a good life for all Tanzanians. Some media organs have been downright disrespectful of the former national leaders to the extent of carrying out stories and cartoons that are actually demonizing such leaders and their families. This is not good.

    In his forum with editors in Dar es Salaam yesterday, the Prime Minister, Mr Mizengo Pinda, expressed deep concern over this unpalatable state of affairs. He urged an end to the endless salvo of attacks against the former leaders – which is a very valid plea. Let them enjoy their retirement in peace please.
