    (C) Comment: Although Salim's remarks were no doubt
    influenced to some extent by his disappointment at not
    capturing the presidential nomination, they ring generally
    true. In particular, the approaching train wreck in
    Zanzibar is of growing general concern, and Salim's
    analysis tracks very closely with ours. We also share his
    skepticism over President Karume's ability - or inclination
    - to exert strong leadership and avoid a crisis. We have
    discussed these concerns with several like-minded
    diplomatic missions here and are planning a series of
    meetings with both Karume and Kikwete to ensure they fully
    understand the consequences of another fraudulent election
    in Zanzibar, and to encourage them to take action now to
    calm tensions and avert a crisis. End Comment.
