    It's election time again, two thousand and ten
    It's treason season again, democracy bargained
    Conspiracy charging, voters chagrin
    Mandarins and pretenders babbling margin while margarining
    The malnourished still starving, more politicking than Garvey
    This bus has no driving, everybody jiving
    While infant mortality competes with police brutality
    We're poor, can't keep the hospital fee nor hospitality
    The feudal shogunate, a magnet for magnates
    Who stagnate the pace in the place with pure madness
    I mentioned treason, It's like a free zone
    Some of these candidates should be locked in prison like Lil Weezo
    They're polluting the air like dirty diesel
    With pretentious claims while we know they ain't got game
    Lame is their name it's a damn shame, they can't even frame
    The issues, one punch at ‘em and they are looking for a tissue
    Crybabies and wannabees to me and Tundu Lissu
    To certain parties, here's advice gratis
    We want some strong minded sisters, possibly literati
    With minds fast like Maserati, can ride miles here to Babati
    Not some picaninny with no merit
    And nothing to narrate
    And a diction I rate as irate
    Exposure zero, a temper like Nero
    Prima Donna Xeroxed, with minus dinero
    While voters alooking for a hero
    It's like we need prayers from Rev. Masanilo !

    We've had, drug addicts and sellers
    And all manners of hellraising yellers
    Of questionable characters fellows
    Who rightfully belong in gaol cellars
    Left conversating with jailers
    With no parole or bailout
    But the dilapidation of my nation
    Got a backflipping fascination with evil as a qualification
    So now we don't even know who to trust
    So it's a must that I bust with some blasts from the past
    The stupid acocksure, while intelligence doubts
    Sitting on the side, in a Socratic bout
    While the violent usurpers are salivating for supper
    And all the Mad Men are acting dapper than Drapper
    Selling us a mani-festo, more like manure-festlove
    The King is naked and we've seen his "tasty-clothes"
    The ruling party is partying with no opposition
    Winning by fiat, without real positions
    Civil Society is really civil
    Wouldn't bat an eyelid at the choir lead cause that's evil
    Democracy ? Failed electocracy
    Controlled by a fake aristocracy

    And to the real soldiers in the race, don't lose face
    Let's start a revolution and the old chapter erase
    Here's what I tell you prospective MP's
    Go on with the good fight be all you can be
    It wasn't that hard, in fact not at all
    It wasn't that bad, to make the call
    And name your name, for a proper game
    It wasn't a chore, to settle that score
    The ambition of my mission was to move doubts and suspicions
    That your person was just fishy and of questionable dispositions
    Now that is past, look ahead to the tasks
    it's not a blast, it's a heavy thing to be asked
    See the euphoria over you being a courier
    Should never cloud your judgement in your new career
    What career? We are just campaigning
    And as everybody knows it ain't Champaigne-ing
    Stay ever hungry, ever winning the people
    Focused on the issues, ever strong not feeble
    And there's much to learn, so you gotta ask questions
    Always make the quorum, when you're expected in session
    If at first you don't succeed due to some bad seed
    Dust yourself up and take care of the weed
    Not the smoke silly, the crowding empty calories
    Strategize, even by moves in art galleries
    A mind is a terrible thing to waste
    And this stimulation ain't from cut and paste
    So be original, and contribute something new
    And don't get mixed up in the current stinking brew
    Confidence is key, but it comes at a fee
    You gotta know your subject well beyond a formal degree
    And no improper use of the right pedigree
    Hit your points home and feel free to spreee
    A lot of them on the race lack humility
    Make that the rock of your stability, the well of your ability
    But don't be a doormat, that ain't fat, in fact it's wack flat
    Just get them where it hurts and show 'em what you got
    The war chest must manifest,
    You're clearly invested in the race and the rest is your best
    Don't compromise core principles for economic gains
    They'll get you again and again til you're nothing but a bargain
    So on this eve of this momentous election
    I believe in your triumph, more than just a honorary mention

    nilikuwa najaribu kuoanisha na ile nukuu ya jenerali:

    “mfalme yu uchi, na korodani zinaonekana

    kumbe ulikuwa unazungumzia tofauti kabisa. hongera kwa kunipiga chenga ya mwili.

    Filling Slaa's Shoes in Karatu
    By Mussa Juma (Arushatimes)

    Thousands of Karatu residents this week turned out to meet a new CHADEMA candidate for the Karatu parliamentary seat left by the former and out spoken legislator Dr Wilbrod Slaa, who was also a former cleric before turning to politician.

    Dr Slaa left the Karatu seat contest this time around after opting to vie for the Presidency of the United Republic of Tanzania on the CHADEMA ticket .

    The new CHADEMA parliamentary candidate Israel Yohana Natse is at present the North-west Diocese-Karatu province pastor in charge of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania.
    The residents received Natse at their traditional welcome point, the Manyara Rift Valley escarpment 20kms East of Karatu.

    They came in a motorcade with motorcycles and bicycles outriders to show their full support of the new contestant who they then led to Karatu football pitch where he officially picked the CHADEMA nomination forms. [​IMG]
    Soon after picking the forms NATSE said he had come to politics on request of the incumbent MP who had made remarkable record in the development of the District.

    He said that a lot of people including CHADEMA'S National Party Chairman Freeman Mbowe and the MP for Moshi Philemon Ndesamburo made him make his mind to contest. Natse believed he could ‘walk' in Dr Slaa's shoes as he also fully understood challenges facing Karatu people.

    Plans he had in mind include building a Karatu University, a Nursing College and a Teachers Training College.


    Natse has a master degree in Theology that he attained in Finland. He also attended Makumira theological college where he .attained a bachelors degree Karatu constituency was represented by Dr Slaa for
    15 years since 1995.

    Thanks,

    Ingekuwa vizuri zaidi.

    Unaweza kutumia sifa hizo kuchagua wa kumpigia kura kati ya waliopendekezwa na vyama tofauti. Kura si zinapigwa Oktoba ?

    Watanzania wengi hawana vyama na hivyo hawana msemo katika mchakato wa vyama kutangaza wagombea wake (private candidates anyone ?) . Lakini bado wana kauli katika uchaguzi mkuu kuamua nani awe mbunge.

    Do you cast your vote for the party or for the person?

    Mimi kama mimi nadhani napigia kura sera zaidi kuliko mtu.
    Hata hivyo nisingependa kuwakilishwa bungeni na mtu asiyeoneka kuweza kutekeleza sera ninazozikubali za chama chake.

    Lakini watanzania wengine wanapiga kura kufuata nini?

    Sera, mtu, jina, au sura?

    Sasa kwa mfano uta reconcile vipi endapo CHADEMA wanakuwa na sera nzuri (kwa mtizamo wako) halafu wanaweka mgombea bomu?

    Hapo ndipo hii kitu inanichanganya......:(

    Itanibidi niibuke na rating system hapo.
    kila kipengelea kiwe na points zake..

    Wagombea wakiwa na points sawa tunaweka bonus points kwenye sura na kivazi :p

    Hahaha,

    Hii mifano mingine inayorandana sana na ukweli inatatanisha sana.

    You already know...

    Mimi naangalia kwanza sera, halafu mgombea. Ila kama alivyosema Gaijin, inabidi kuwa na ka rating system, mana sera zikiwa nzuri halafu mgombea bomu hata hawezi kuzitekeleza, mara nyingine bora chama kikiwa na sera hafifu na mgombea mzuri unaweza hata kupata matumaini kwamba mgombea anaweza kushawishi a change of priorities. Which busts my "institutions over individuals" philosophy in some senses, but by aiming at building better institutions.

    It's a tough call I tell you.

    Labda tatizo ni

    Kama tunatimiza msemo wa Socrates, kwamba "wenye uwezo hawataki kuongoza, na wanaotaka kuongoza hawana uwezo" inakuwa vigumu sana kulaumu wasio na uwezo wanaotaka kuongoza.

    Tushajiuliza kwa nini wenye uwezo hawataki kuongoza ?

    Ni kwa kuwa hawajijui kuwa wana uwezo?

    Jukumu liko kwa vyama kuwa scout watu wenye uwezo mapemaaaa kabla hata dalili ya uchaguzi haipo kuingia chamani.

    Kama vyama vinashindwa kubeba jukumu hilo vinaweza kubeba jukumu gani?

    Wenye uwezo hawataki kuongoza kwa sababu wanaelewa kwamba, licha ya ukweli kwamba uongozi ni mzito almost popote, ni mzito zaidi kwenye nchi masikini pasipo sera wala mfumo, na mtu kuja kubadilisha mfumo ni vigumu. Ndiyo maana hata Nyerere alsiema "Ikulu ni mzigo, ni mgogoro, mtu safi kabisa hupakimbilii". Nyerere was borrowing from this Socratic reasoning. Sasa ukizidisha matatizo ya umasikini kwenye mgogoro huu, watu wenye uwezo wanaona longolongo nyingi zitawaharibia peace of mind yao bila ya kuleta mabadiliko ya maana. Kwa mtu ambaye anataka kuongoza hasa, na sio kutafuta ukubwa tu, suala la kujiingiza katika uongozi wa siasa -hususan siasa za uchaguzi- ni suala gumu sana ambalo uamuzi wake hauwezi kufikiwa kirahisi. Ndiyo maana nawashangaa wanaorukia ubunge kama kazi ya kuuza juisi ya ukwaju, wanaelewa maswali na maswala magumu yanayotukabili ? Wanajua uwezo unaotakiwa kuyatatua? Au ndio kama wanavyotuambia "ubunge si kitu cha ajabu, mtu yeyote anaweza kuwa mbunge"?. No wonder tupo tulipo.

    Mathalani, si siri kwamba ili kuwa mbunge -hususan kutoka chama twawala- ni lazima utumie rushwa na kutoa ahadi za uongo, hii ni given. Sasa kuna watu wengi wana uwezo lakini wanaona hawawezi ku sacrifice principles zao na kujiingiza katika rushwa na kudanganya.

    Sasa hapo unakuta kuna vultures kibao wasio na principles wako tayari kutoa rushwa na kukuambia watakuletea barabara za angani, mwisho wa siku unakuta wagombea wote wasanii na wenye uwezo wa kuongoza washajichokea.

    Vigezo vya mwenye uwezo ni vipi? Kila anaegombea anajiona anao uwezo wa kutumikia wananchi na ndio maana akachukuwa uamuzi huo.
