    When the powers that be decided that it was time for a New World Order, secret treaties were signed - not too long ago - that determined how these "powers" would "share" (amongst themselves) the world's natural resources, whether those resources were to be found in their sovereigns or not was irrelevant; they decreed, let's share the world's resources, with impunity.

    Thus came to be Globalisation, also known as the New Slavery or the New Lie!

    What were the other forms of "slavery" before this one, which has been legitimised to include heads of state of African countries as "puppets", beguiled, bewitched? They were colonialism and the so-called mandate territories, which were "polite" forms of colonialism.

    In order to ensure that this New World Order survives and thrives, the "world rulers" decreed the following:


    • Declare some countries as being Highly Indebted Poor Countries (HIPCs), so as to ensure that the poverty noose is tied tighter around the neck, with the "donor" bait!
    • For those countries that were finding ways to avoid donor grants and soft-term loans, the "world rulers" came with "extended hands", offering all sorts of AID (I call it AIDS, short for Acquired Immunity from Donations Syndrome!), so as to appear "generous". In today's world, nothing is ever free... nothing comes for free... for every US 1 dollar that is donated, US 7 dollars go back to where the US 1 dollar came from... it's a trap!
    • To make matters worse, such "donor community" schemes and corporations, such as the Millennium Challenge Corporation, came up with a set of rules, that "developing countries" would have to comply with, in order to qualify for the massive "AIDS" from the "world rulers", among the criteria... GOOD GOVERNANCE!
    But there is a lot of hypocrisy in all this... take Tanzania for example. You all have heard about North Mara (Barrick... nothing will be done about it... trust me!), you know what is going on in Rorya (where is GOOD GOVERNANCE in that?), what about the recently-held Parliamentary elections in Busanda and Biharamulo? There were massive violations of the Elections code, not to forget the so-called partisan militia, Green Guards, of CCM, who went around beating up opposition party members... GOOD GOVERNANCE?

    Ok, what about fair trade? There is nothing fair about foreign buyers determining the price of cotton, coffee, cashewnuts or any other cash-crop commodity, simply because they "own" the world markets?

    Jobs? So-called expatriates come in from the US and Europe, as tourists, and they "fall in love with Tanzania", decide to stick around. We, as stupid as we are, just because of their "skin colour" (reverse racism...), we give them high-paying jobs, because they "appear" to be professional(?). In our own backyard... let's not even go there... so many people with forged academic certificates... we dont even tremble... who "vets" the authenticity of the academic qualifications of the "foreign expatriates" who decide to immigrate into Tanzania, after having "fallen in love with the country of their dreams..."?

    Let's wake up and smell the coffee... while we lie, they rob us blind! How come it is 300 times more difficult for a BLACK AFRICAN to get a "fair" job in the US or Europe, while it is 100 percent EASY for an American or European to get a "quality" job in Africa, simply because of their skin colour... that makes them "more professional"? Who declared that all Americans or Europeans, or Latinos for that matter, were necessarily "more professional" than you and me?

    If I go any further I will hit and break my desktop... so let me end here... this is truly irritating!

    For Obama to say that "Tanzania is a model nation" is like a slap in the face. It's like he's saying: Here, here, good dog, goood doooog! Here, here, lie down! Sit! Fetch! And we, Tanzanians, wag our tail, pant, run around, barking and yelping... but we DONT BITE!

    You have been warned... Globalisation, like all the other lies, colonialisms and forms of slavery that the "white man" has ever come up with, isn't GOOD for Africa and the rest of the "developing world"!

    **** the Millennium Development Goals! Whose goals are they, anyway? Ours, or theirs?

    By what definition is corruption corruption?

    There may be a need to look into this current fasion of detailing things as corruption.

    I believe that where there is a blatant embezelment of public funds or national assets then there is the judicial protocol to bring those perpetrators to justice..... failure in that then what we have is a break down of that protocol.... the wider malaise is not just corruption but a systematic failure in the whole procedure of governance....the executive the legisletive and judiciary....which brings the question what is exaclty good governance?

    All things being relative and subjective any semblance of good governace has to be that which matters to the ones being governed.....one size can not fit all they are the ones that need to be empowered to determine the direction that their future is heading and this is not just through the ballot box when elections come around. There has to be a procedure where during the term of govermnment accountability issues can be raised and answered..... and here not just during the budget time where some elected representatives raise their profile by threataning to with hold the provebial...shilling so as to gain some superficial headlines in the news papers.

    Shall we continue to delibarate and discuss.........

    Tatizo Africa kila siku ni kutafuta mchawi badala ya solution. Kuna wakati fulani mchoraji akatoa picha. Kwenye hiyo picha kulikuwa na omba omba mweusi anayemuomba mzungu pesa. Huyo omba omba alikua amekalia kiti cha dhahabu. Mzungu akawa ana hamaki kwamba anaombwa pesa na mtu aliye kalia kiti cha dhahabu. That cartoon summarizes the situation in Africa.

    You all missed the point... read between the lines... the West imposes conditions of GOOD GOVERNANCE upon African countries, for them to qualify for their so-called DONOR AID PROGRAMMES.... African countries continue to ignore GOOD GOVERNANCE requirements and the West continues to shell out monies in the so-called DONOR AID PROGRAMMES... Africa continues, unabated, with impunity, to ignore GOOD GOVERNANCE... why then, should the West impose any such conditions while Africa ignore them completely and continues to receive AIDS?

    Mkuu kwanza ni AID na siyo AIDS. Pia mkuu unabidi utambue kuwa hakuna msaada usio na masharti. Hata wewe ukimpa mtu pesa ni lazima utafuatilia kama anaitumia kwa madhumuni mliokubaliana la sivyo hauta toa pesa siku nyingine. The West don't want to waste their money on nothing. If they give us money they would obviously want something in return. Ni sisi tunao amua kuomba hiyo misaada na kama tungeitumia vizuri inge saidia. Kuna nchi kama Indonasia miaka ya 60 uchumi wake haukua tofauti sana na wakwetu lakini angalia sasa hivi wapo wapi. Wao wameweza wana nini?
