    This is Hotel Africa; you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave



    BY JENERALI ULIMWENGU

    Do you sometimes feel, dear reader, that you are in the middle of a hostage situation in which you and your fellow captives know that you are in a bad way and there is nothing you can do about it because all the doors are locked and your hands and feet have been manacled?

    If you do, then you are living in an African country governed the African way. The country probably has a constitution that says all the beautiful words that constitutions are meant to say, guaranteeing the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    It probably also says that there will be periodic elections that shall be free, fair and transparent. It also establishes a number of grand-sounding institutions to enforce these rights, such as a talking shop called parliament, courts of law, an ombudsman and such like.

    Indeed, every so many years you and your fellow captives troop out to vote for your preferred candidate and/or party, and at the end of the exercise, a government of sorts is formed and its head makes a grandiloquent statement reaffirming his commitment to the delivery of the goodies he promised during the campaign, the nation listens carefully and your hopes soar.

    But before you grow old you realise you've been had. All the rhetoric, you learn, was just words, all the promises empty and all your hopes unfounded. You get to know why "politician" was, in Shakespearean parlance, used to denote a dishonest and dissembling character. You rue the day you went to vote, and may even swear never to vote again.

    The hostage situation becomes more and more intractable when you realise that despite your realisation that all the literature about freedom and prosperity and all the declarations about service to the nation were traps with which to ensnare you, you cannot wiggle out of the bind you find yourselves in.

    And, you may sometimes participate in your continued enslavement by siding with some of your kidnappers because they come from your tribe or profess the same superstition as yourself, and they probably told you it's your turn to eat. Yet, if you looked closely you would find out that it's the turn of the big man and his wife and children to eat while you of the tribe or faith make do with the crumbs off the high table. Tribal, religious and regional alliances are ploys used by cheats to fool the masses.


    Often, while you lie on the floor blindfolded and bound hand and foot, you will hear bitter wrangling among the thieves fighting over your property, one claiming the television set, another the stereo system and a third the jewellery. You realise there is no honour among these thieves, and you are praying that they settle their differences quickly, take whatever they want and leave your house.

    But they are not leaving in any hurry because another argument erupts as to whether they should kill you since you may be able to identify them, and you now know you are really in a bad way. Well, they do not exactly kill you but they do not leave either. They remain and make your home theirs, and you remain seriously handicapped because you are still bound, blindfolded and maybe gagged as well.

    This is the situation in which many African countries find themselves in, being governed for the most part by conspiracies that came into power riding on a wave of popular support, with the enthusiastic hope among the populace that the deprivations of the outgoing regime were a thing of the past. Soon, the past becomes the present as well as the future.

    We are saddled with thieving scoundrels that we apparently cannot get rid of, and we helplessly listen to them haggling over our property as they demand fairness in the sharing of the loot. And even if they untie you and say you are free to leave, it's like in the old Eagles' song, Hotel California: "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave…"

    Africa is a corrupt society...!? People go into politics and certain public positions, not to serve, but to steal. There are many SCOUNDRELS from local authorities to central govt cutting deals to rob the government properties! Funny enough, they do not expect to get caught!

    Tanzania has never had competent government.

    Recently President Jakaya Kikwete has reshuffled his government for the third time since he became president of United Republic of Tanzania.

    By appointing Profesor Mark Mwandosya as minister without portfolio cabinet ministers are now 30 instead of the previous 29, while the number of deputy ministers is now 25 instead of the previous 21, thus bringing the entire cabinet to 55 compare to the previous 50.

    This clearly shows how this government is determined to make sure that everyone is invited to party even those who are not direct elected MPs and are given government posts.

    But also these changes he has done make no difference on the outlook of the performance for some of the ministers involved. The food and fuel prices have been enforced by the businesses which we can say that they don't care about ordinary citizens and also they don't necessarily have to.

    With all these events it clearly showing that this government is not competent enough and all things which are doing to batter the lives of poor citizens the light should be out.

    The competent government will be the one which looks after its spending and not wasting tax payer's money. The competent government will be the one which knows better all economic indicators and how it deals with them, how it delivers public services to its citizens without marginalizing the poor.

    The competent government will be the one which would investigate all embezzlements by its cabinet ministers and civil servants, and insure that people like TBS Charles Ekelege and Mustapha Mkulo and 7 others who are still in cabinet, are called to answer charges for mismanaging public funds for their own good.

    I don't think if Tanzania will ever have competent government under CCM rule.

    We are talking about the party that leads a government that in the end collects TAX from us, the citizens. When CDM takes the government, we shall do the same.

    No Party collects TAX, all parties use TAX. CDM are known to have avoided paying taxes previously and are known to misuse funds. good example, Fuso and Yaya case.

    Ulimwengu tells it as it is, but yes indeed, we in Africa are known when it comes to money. Does it matter which party you are in? A thief is simply a thief he may be from CCM or CHADEMA or none partisan at all, an African is an African it does not matter which party he belongs to.

    Hii ni Hotel Afrika; unaweza kuangalia nje wakati wowote wewe kama, lakini huwezi kamwe kuondoka


    KWA JENERALI Ulimwengu

    Je, wakati mwingine kuhisi, msomaji mpendwa, kwamba wewe ni katikati ya hali ya mateka katika ambayo na mateka mwenzako kujua kuwa wewe ni katika njia mbaya na kuna kitu unaweza kufanya kuhusu hilo kwa sababu milango yote ni umefungwa na yako mikono na miguu wamekuwa manacled?

    Kama wewe, basi ni wanaoishi katika nchi za Afrika kutawaliwa njia ya Afrika. nchi pengine ina katiba ambayo anasema maneno yote mazuri kwamba katiba ni maana ya kusema, kuhakikisha haki ya uhuru wa maisha, na harakati ya furaha.

    Ni pengine pia anasema kuwa kutakuwa na uchaguzi wa mara kwa mara kwamba itakuwa huru, haki na uwazi. Ni pia itaanzisha idadi ya taasisi grand-sounding kutekeleza haki hizi, kama vile duka kuzungumza kuitwa bunge, mahakama ya sheria, Ombudsman na kitu kama hiyo.

    Hakika, kila baada ya miaka mingi wewe na mateka wenzako zinaingia katika kura mgombea mapendeleo yako na / au ya chama, na mwisho wa zoezi hilo, Serikali ya kila aina ni sumu na kichwa chake, anatoa tamko grandiloquent reaffirming ahadi yake ya utoaji wa goodies alivyoahidi wakati wa kampeni, taifa anasikiliza kwa makini na matumaini yako kuongezeka.

    Lakini kabla ya kukua zamani wewe kutambua tumekuwa nayo. Rhetoric ya yote, kujifunza, mara tu maneno, ahadi zote tupu na yako matumaini yasiyokuwa ya msingi. Kupata kujua kwa nini "mwanasiasa" ilikuwa, katika parlance Shakespearean, kutumika kuashiria tabia mwaminifu na dissembling. Wewe pakanga siku wewe akaenda kupiga kura, na inaweza hata kuapa kamwe kupiga kura tena.

    hali ya mateka inakuwa zaidi na zaidi kuingia katika hofu kubwa wakati wewe kutambua kwamba pamoja na utambuzi yako kwamba fasihi wote kuhusu uhuru na ustawi na maazimio yote kuhusu huduma kwa taifa hilo walikuwa mitego ambayo kwa tega wewe, huwezi wiggle nje ya kumfunga kupata wenyewe in

    Na, unaweza wakati mwingine kushiriki katika utumwa wako kuendelea na siding na baadhi ya wanaowaiba wako kwa sababu wao, kabila yako au wanaokiri dini sawa na wewe mwenyewe, na pengine aliiambia wewe ni zamu yako ya kula. Hata hivyo, kama wewe inaonekana kwa karibu bila kujua kwamba ni zamu ya mtu mkubwa na mke na watoto wake chakula wakati wa kabila au imani kufanya nini na makombo mbali meza ya juu. Kikabila, kidini na kikanda muungano ni ploys kutumiwa na cheats kuwadanganya raia.


    Mara nyingi, wakati uongo juu ya sakafu blindfolded na amefungwa mikono na miguu, mtasikia msuguano kati ya wezi machungu ya kupigania mali yako, mmoja akidai kuweka televisheni, mfumo mwingine Stereo na tatu jewellery. Wewe kutambua hakuna heshima kati ya wezi hawa, na wewe ni kuomba kwamba kutatua tofauti zao kwa haraka, kuchukua chochote wanachotaka na kuondoka nyumbani yako.

    Lakini wao si kuondoka katika haraka yoyote kwa sababu hoja nyingine yalizuka ya kama wamwue ninyi tangu unaweza kuwa na uwezo wa kutambua yao, na sasa najua wewe ni kweli katika njia mbaya. Vizuri, hawana hasa kukuua lakini hawana kuondoka aidha. Wao kubaki na kufanya nyumbani kwao, na bado umakini walemavu kwa sababu wewe ni bado amefungwa, blindfolded na labda midomo imebanwa pia.

    Hii ni hali ambayo nchi nyingi za Afrika kujikuta katika, kuwa serikali kwa sehemu kubwa ya hila lililoingia katika nguvu wanaoendesha juu ya wimbi mkono na watu, kwa matumaini na shauku miongoni mwa umma kwamba deprivations wa serikali ya anayemaliza muda wake walikuwa kitu wa zamani. Hivi karibuni, siku za nyuma inakuwa ya sasa kama vile siku zijazo.

    Sisi ni akatandika na scoundrels thieving kwamba sisi inaonekana haiwezi kujikwamua, na sisi helplessly kusikiliza yao haggling juu ya mali yetu kama wao kudai haki katika kugawana kupora. Na hata kama vyake, na watasema wewe ni huru kuondoka, ni kama katika wimbo Eagles zamani ', Hotel California: "Unaweza kuangalia wowote wewe kama, lakini huwezi kamwe kuondoka ..."
