A few months before Thabo Mbeki was "recalled" from the South African presidency by his party, ANC, two biographers published 'Fit to Govern: The Native Intelligence of Thabo Mbeki' and 'Thabo Mbeki: The Dream Deferred' respectively. This tradition of setting the political agenda and changing the political landscape through writing political biographies is still in its infancy in Tanzania. The closest we got to it was when Prince Bagenda wrote 'Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete: Tumaini Lililorojea' just after the 2005 presidential election. We also have a glimpse of the potential this tradition has in the queries and writings of Mwanakijiji. In this thread I invite all those who are interested in spearheading this tradition to come forward and co-write a biography of JK which will move beyond the current tendency to look at him as a leader who has failed to lead. In this political biography, which is could have a different title from the above-copied and pasted titles, the interest is to look at the political intelligence of JK. It will ask questions such as: What is the intellectual prowess of JK? What is his ideological position? What kind of political strategy brought him to ascendency and sustain him there? What contribution has he given to the political discourse? What does he think about the current political situation and why does he think that way? What political personalities and intellectual currents has, and continue to, influence his political thinking and strategy? What is his role in shaping political thinking and influencing the cause of events? What does he think of himself - as a leader, governor, manager, administrator, custodian, comprador, bourgeoisie, middleman, broker, auctioner, investor and/or businessman? Mods kindly don't merge this thread with the other one as they are different!
