    Haya sasa, Gaddafi akishindwa miradi flani bongo itadorora!

    By Daniel Msangya
    The Citizen Correspondent


    Embattled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi may be viewed as a villain worldwide today, but his legacy looms large in Tanzania, where he is getting backing from people whose lives he has touched in one way or another.

    If the eccentric leader is driven out of power by the popular revolt currently sweeping his oil-rich country,
    he will not be without Tanzanian sympathisers who laud his support for the poor and needy as testimony of his good leadership.

    The collapse of the regime in Tripoli would also raise apprehension over several projects worth billions of shillings that Gaddafi had promised to implement in several African countries, including Tanzania.

    Now you know why Membe won't denounce him publicly.

    To be poor is a crime, mtu unashindwa hata kumsema muuaji kwa kuogopa maslahi kuharibika.

    Gaddafi 'Gifts' to Country in Limbo After Uprising

    Dodoma

    Embattled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi may be viewed as a villain worldwide today, but his legacy looms large in Tanzania, where he is getting backing from people whose lives he has touched in one way or another.

    If the eccentric leader is driven out of power by the popular revolt currently sweeping his oil-rich country, he will not be without Tanzanian sympathisers who laud his support for the poor and needy as testimony of his good leadership.

    The collapse of the regime in Tripoli would also raise apprehension over several projects worth billions of shillings that Gaddafi had promised to implement in several African countries, including Tanzania.

    The Libyan leader had pledged to establish an ultramodern complex, mosque and college in Dar es Salaam following a successful example in Dodoma. A foundation stone for the Dar es Salaam centre was laid last year by retired President Ali Hassan Mwinyi.

    One of the believers in Gaddafi's leadership is the Chief Sheikh of Dodoma Region, Mustafa Rajab Shabaan, who also doubles as the manager of the Sh6 billion Gaddafi Education Centre and Mosque located in the city.

    The imposing 3,000 capacity facility inaugurated last year by President Jakaya Kikwete is a picturesque architectural gem; the only one of its kind in the country and only rivalling the one Mr Gaddafi built and officially opened in Uganda over a year ago.

    The Dodoma mosque and centre is thus a constant reminder of the hitherto great efforts that went into anything that Libya and Gaddafi in particular undertook to roll out either in his endeavour to serve humanity or seek loyalty far and wide.

    The Citizen on Saturday sought to establish the fate of activities at the Dodoma centre and the proposed Dar es Salaam complex in case the rebels succeeded in toppling him and bring to an abrupt end his 42 years of uninterrupted reign.

    "It is true there is currently a problem to access entry into Libya; but because of the government's working relations with foreign governments, we do not believe anything going on there will affect much of what we receive," observed Sheikh Shabaan.

    The Muslim leader said several parties, including other denominations that are benefitting from the Gaddafi facility in Dodoma and the government have been extending invaluable support.

    "What Colonel Gaddafi did here was for all humanity and the goodwill that we receive will sustain the centre," said the Sheikh, who received his four years study in Libya. He noted that the cost of running the centre was about Sh10 million every month in salaries and other expenses.

    He said any help that they received was not from the Libyan leader personally, but through the World Islamic Call Society (WICS) that was established in that country to work with many other people around Africa and elsewhere to reach out to the needy. The WICS Secretary General Dr Muhammad Ahmed Sharrif was among those who witnessed the opening of the Dodoma mosque and conveyed a congratulation message from Col Gaddafi.

    "The society is stable because it is a reputed Islamic institution worldwide and it is our hope that God willing we will continue working together. It is through this organ that many outstanding mosques and learning centres have been built to serve."

    According to Sheikh Shabaan, the crisis in Libya would come to pass, as Gaddafi has reiterated that the evil forces conspiring to destabilise his country would be doomed. He said Colonel Gaddafi has the power to quell the uprising because he has the backing of Libyan people who have benefited from his government's commitment to uplift their lives.

    Other than the mosque, the Gaddafi Centre in Dodoma has enrolled nearly 300 students in various courses, including Arabic language, tailoring, computer skills and studies in the Muslim doctrines.

    A Libyan national and Arabic language professional, Mr Khamis Ali Barawa has been seconded to the Centre. The construction of the premises that also comprises a dispensary began in 2007 and was completed in January 2010. However Sheikh Shabaan said services at the dispensary had not begun due to incomplete preparations.

    In Dar es Salaam, officials of the National Muslim Council of Tanzania (Bakwata) did not wish to comment on the fate of the planned ultra modern complex and college in view of the uprising in Libya. The multi-billion project that would also serve as Bakwata headquarters was expected to kick off any time.

    Were the eccentric leader to be driven out of power by a popular public revolt currently sweeping his oil-rich country, he would not be without Tanzanian sympathisers, who hail his support for the needy as testimony of his good leadership.

    The collapse of the regime in Tripoli would also likely raise apprehension over several projects, worth billions of shillings, that Gaddafi had promised to implement in several African countries including Tanzania.

    The Libyan leader, for instance, had committed to establish an ultra-modern complex, Mosque and College in Dar es Salaam after a successful example in Dodoma. A foundation stone for the Dar es Salaam centre was laid last year by retired President Ali Hassan Mwinyi.

    One of the believers in Gaddafi’s leadership is the Chief Sheikh for Dodoma Region, Mustapha Rajab Shabaan, who also doubles as the manager of the $4,081,632.7 million Gaddafi Education Centre and Mosque located in the city.

    The imposing 3,000 capacity facility, inaugurated last year by President Jakaya Kikwete, is a picturesque architecture; the only one of its kind in the country and only rivalling the one Col Gaddafi also built and opened in Uganda over a year ago.

    TENDWA HELP CCM AND KIKWETE RETURN GADDAFI'S FUNDINGS TOO OR GO DOWN WITH HIM

    If one ever thought that the generous hands of Libyan dictator was only quick to oil the claimed France President's campaign machine alone then you are badly mistaken.

    President Kikwete and CCM in particular are but major beneficiary of almost every other dictatorship in Northern Africa and the Middle East.

    Lots of litle known projects of the said shordy fundings are already towering in our very neighbourhoods under Tendwa's watch without a word.

    However, the bottomline is an increased Islamic extremist and fanatism promotions with lone mosques decorating the every othe major roadside in Tanzania even in places where children still literary long to catch a first glimpse of a person called a Moslem and how they generally appear in public.

    Better give them that small bit of a whole stream of clandestine financial backing that both Kikwete and CCM have long been enjoy from dictator to continue imposing unpopular leadership on our shoulders in Tanzania.

    When CCM, Kikwete and Tendwa complained on very wild allagationslabelled against CHADEMA of a possible funding from a foreign source, a things that everybody knows is an utter propaganda, the I was totally at a lose since the DIRTY MONEYS that the ruling party have lately been open to could sooner bring dire consequences to our country as much is already known out there.

    The ill-fated scapegoats on CDM are but mere smear campaign that will only add, great minds of CDM follows, to love the party the more as they shun the UFISADI-infested CCM just the same way they would be doing with a person suffering from POLITICAL LEPROSY.

    Much of the fundings from the North (Libya, Egypt and Iran) have all been with stringent Islamic religious extremism promotion that now threaten to tear apart our beloved country; courtesey of CCM and Kikwete quick hands at receiving such 'mean-motivated personal assistance'.

    Before CCM could start throwing blames on other political parties, let them put their own house in order as a lot of well docummented foreign fundings with religious leaning to its ranks would soon be blown into the air if they ever start empty propaganda in this line.

    Who knows, the desposed Hosni Mubarak who is now JOBLESS may well be wishing that millions of money he gave to CCM as part of a wider cross-continental religious schemes in Africa is return in whole today and NOT tomorrow!!!
