    FOR the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) to tighten its grip on power and dominate national politics, unity and accountability are key elements amongst party cadres, the party's National Chairman, President Jakaya Kikwete has said.

    In his message to party members on the occasion to commemorate the birth of CCM's predecessor, Tanganyika African National Union (TANU), President Kikwete cautioned against laxity amongst the party's rank and file. (Duh!)

    He especially took issue at leaders whom he said have been provided with all the necessary resources to perform their tasks but remained inactive, for no proper reason. (Ashakum si matusi........)

    The lack of unity and accountability will weaken the party and in the long run lead to its defeat, he told a well attended meeting of ten cell leaders at the Ubungo Plaza in Dar es Salaam on Thursday.

    "We may all come from a different background and faith. But as party members we have a common agenda that can only be achieved when there is unity amongst ourselves," he said.

    On accountability and self-motivation, President Kikwete said that during the days of TANU and the struggle for independence, party members took initiatives and treated party duties as a calling.

    He lamented that despite being provided with all the necessary resources, some party leaders still do not take the initiative to visit branches in their areas of influence, neither do they know how they (branches) look like.

    The day's icing on the cake was Mzee Constantine Milinga from Mafinga in Iringa Region. The 90 year-old is among the three remaining founding members of TANU out of 17.

    His narrative was a nostalgic reminiscence of the days the party was being formed and how active the founding members were in cutting all corners to avoid the strict colonial masters and mobilize members.

    He told the attentive crowd how TANU was formed from the Tanganyika African Association (TAA) in July, 1954 and how he became one of the 17 founding fathers.

    In January, 1977 TANU was merged with the ruling party in Zanzibar, the Afro-Shirazi Party (ASP) to form the current Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM).

    Kikwete's message is full of irony. It's almost as if he is making a joke about himself.

    Is that their top priority? A power trip?

    Kabla hujamaliza sentensi ya kwanza unaona tatizo liko wapi.

    huyu mzee yuko very paranoid na in denial. Kwa akili yake kila mtu ana makosa kasoro yeye. Si kila siku tunaambiwa wasaidizi wake ndiyo wanaomuangusha bwana? Wasaidizi hao hao anaowateua yeye na ambao anauwezo wa kuwawajibisha yeye? No JK is never wrong and is never at fault. Watu wote wa chini yake ndiyo wanamuangusha muheshimiwa rahisi.

    He is simply talking about himself, pamoja na kumpatia ndege ya rais ambayo kwayo tuliambiwa tutakula majani lakini hata wala majani hajui wanahaligani sasa hivi.
