    STATEMENT BY HEADS OF MISSION IN TANZANIA OF CANADA, JAPAN, NORWAY AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ON THE VOTER REGISTRATION PROCESS IN ZANZIBAR
    13 AUGUST 2009

    We, the undersigned Heads of Mission, would like to underline that the right to vote is a fundamental democratic principle. It is the responsibility of the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania to ensure that all Tanzanians will have the possibility to exercise this right in the 2010 elections.

    The Heads of Mission are seriously concerned about what appear to be flawed elements in the voter registration process in Zanzibar. Specifically, we are concerned about reports that many Tanzanian citizens on Pemba are facing obstacles to obtain a Zanzibar ID, which has become the principal criterion for voter registration on Zanzibar, and that the issuance of Zanzibar IDs is subject to irregular influence.

    The Heads of Mission expect the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania and the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar to ensure that all necessary measures are taken to rectify the current shortcomings of the voter registration process. The totality of the changes should ensure that no Tanzanians, including Zanzibaris, will be denied the right to vote in the 2010 elections.

    Simultaneously, the Heads of Mission strongly encourage all political parties and groups to refrain from any violence and use peaceful means to express their opinions and differences.

    The statement is made by the Heads of Mission in Tanzania of Canada, Japan, Norway and the United States of America.

    This statement is made jointly with all EU Heads of Mission in Tanzania: Belgium, Denmark, European Commission Delegation, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden as EU Presidency and the United Kingdom.

    This statement can sound louder if it's followed by cutting financial support which mostly ends to the pockets of the few who're in power.

    Nilisema hapa pelekeni vifaru na tembo na hakuna wa kuwazuia maana kuna macho yanangojea ushahidi kamili tu ,kama maviongozi wa utawala wa CCM wanaona wao hawana wa kuwakamata wala hawana wa kuwahoji na labda wanaona vile kutoa hazina ya nchi kuwapa wageni kujenga mahoteli ya kifahari kuwa ni ngao ya wao kuambiwa neno na kuweza kushitakiwa basi watakuwa wanajidanganya ,Sadamu alikuwa rafiki mkubwa wa marekani ,akina Osama walikuwa vipenzi vya wazungu na wengine wengi tu ,ila unga ulipozidi maji ikawa hakufanyiki tena mikate wala maandazi ni kuwakurupusha na kuwashitaki juu ,leo hii hatafutwi ni polisi gani alitumika wala jeshi yupi alizunguka na kifaru na tembo ,wanashikwa ni vinara na viongozi ,tulionao ni Kikwete Karume Mkuu wa majeshi na mawaziri wake na viranja wengine wanaokubali kufanywa watumwa ili kuilinda CCM ,viongozi wetu wa upinzani hawatachoka kuwahadharisha na kuwapa maonyo na wanaposema kuwa fulani na fulani wanahusika basi mjue mnahusika kweli sio utani ,huenda kwa sasa tukamhitaji Mkapa kabla ya uchaguzi wa 2010 ili atupashe ilikwenda kwendaje mpaka Tz ikatoa wakimbizi ?
    Nazidi kusema kuwa viongozi mliopo madarakani mnatizamwa kwa jicho linalotafuta na kukusanya ushahidi ,kwa yanayokusanywa ni pamoja na siri za ndani ya serikali zinazoamrisha kufanya hujuma za Pemba na sehemu nyingine ambazo zipo katika mikakati ,hizo siri hazitaanikwa kwa sasa ,nasema zinakusanywa ,pindipo wakati wa ushahidi utahitajiwa hapo ndipo mtakapoona hata picha za kideo za wanaopanga mikakati ,nyumba za mikutano yao ,magari waliyotumia bila ya kusahau saa na wakati wanaoingia na kutoka katika vikao vya mipango yao.Kwa sasa hazuiwi mtu wala hashituliwi mtu endeleeni tu,vyama vya upinzani vijitahidi kununua siri za viongozi hawa ambao wanaona mambo yao hayajulikani ,wamesahau kuwa huu si wakati wa kukaa na kupanga njama za kutenda uovu kwani humo humo wamo wasamaria wema. Kazi kwenu.

    Voter registration flawed, says donors
    By Bernard James
    THE CITIZEN

    The European Union and the United States yesterday expressed concern over what they described as flawed voter registration in Zanzibar in preparation for next year's General Election, and called for the shortcomings to be immediately rectified.

    In a joint statement issued in Dar es Salaam, the representatives of the major donor countries, which fund the national Budget by over 34 per cent, said they were "seriously concerned about what appears to be flawed elements in the voter registration process in Zanzibar."

    But in response last evening, Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation minister Bernard Membe said that though he had not received the envoys? statement, they were free to air their views and advice on the issue.

    He said the Government was equally concerned about the reports on voter registration problems in Zanzibar, but would ensure that all eligible people are registered as voters.

    Mr Membe said that due to the seriousness of the issue, it could come up for discussion when the top organs of the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) meet in Dodoma from today.

    However, the diplomats' call would appear to vindicate claims by the opposition Civic United Front (CUF) of deliberately orchestrated sabotage, especially in Pemba, which is the party's stronghold, since the exercise started two weeks ago.

    There have been clashes and protests, particularly in Pemba, between CUF supporters and security personnel, forcing the Zanzibar Electoral Commission (ZEC) registration officials to call off the exercise in some areas.

    The EU heads of mission Tanzania signed the joint donors' statement. They include the ambassadors of Belgium, Denmark, the European Commission Delegation, Finland, France, Germany Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, which currently holds the rotating presidency, and the United Kingdom.

    Other signatories were the ambassadors in Dar es Salaam of Canada, Japan, Norway, and the United States.

    CUF accuses the authorities of barring eligible would-be voters from being registered in order to lock them out of next year?s elections and weaken the opposition party.

    Last Friday, the party's secretary general, Maalim Seif Sharif Hamad, accused the Union Government of fomenting the chaos to mess up the registration of voters.

    He alleged a plot by the authorities in Zanzibar to lock CUF supporters, particularly from Pemba Island, out of next year's General Election. He said this was going on despite an assurance by Zanzibar President Amani Abeid Karume that all eligible voters would be registered.

    The statement released through the European Union office in Dar es Salaam appeared to confirm CUF's claims.

    "The Heads of Mission expect the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania and the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar to ensure that all necessary measures are taken to rectify the shortcomings in the voter registration process,"the statement read in part.

    The envoys said the freedom to vote was a fundamental democratic right and that it was the responsibility of the government to ensure all the eligible people participate in the forthcoming elections.

    Voter registration in Pemba has been marred by chaos from the start. It took a new turn early last week when police opened fire, injuring two protesting supporters of the opposition party.

    The incident forced ZEC officials to suspend the registration of voters in Ole constituency.

    In his statement, Maalim Seif alleged that thousands of CUF supporters had been turned away from voter registration centres for allegedly not having Zanzibar identity cards. The irony, he added, was that the supporters could not acquire IDs because local leaders had denied them application forms.

    Maalim Seif, who unsuccessfully vied for presidency in 2005, also charged that IDs had been issued to ineligible Zanzibaris such as those with permanent residence in Tanzania Mainland, so they could vote for CCM.

    Last Thursday, chaos broke out in Unguja, when more than 300 residents of South A district besieged the ID registration office, locking the staff inside.

    They invaded the office in the Gamba suburb, demanding ID application forms, but the officials turned them down. One of the protestors, Mr Faki Ali, said he had filled in a form and handed it to the Sheha (local leaders) but was never issued with an ID.

    There were also reports that bombs had been planted under bridges in Pemba, and that two CUF offices torched in the voter registration chaos. This was after government officials in Pemba said that two local leaders responsible for issuing ID application forms had been attacked.

    In their statement, the EU heads of mission said they were "specifically concerned about reports that many Tanzanians in Pemba are facing obstacles obtaining IDs, which have became the principal criterion for voter registration in Zanzibar."

    The donors also criticised the interference in the issuance of Zanzibar IDs.

    They called for transparent registration to ensure that no eligible Tanzanians, including Zanzibaris, are denied the right to vote in the 2010 elections.

    The donors also urged political parties and other groups to refrain from any violence and use peaceful means to express their differences.

    In June, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and donors, including Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Britain and the European Commission gave a donation of $23 million (Sh30.3 billion) to fund preparations for next year's elections.

    The support was pegged on the on-going national efforts to plan and hold free and fair elections.

    The Elections Support Project 2010 is meant for the National Electoral Commission (NEC) and the ZEC and will continue until after the elections expected to be held in October next year.

    UN resident coordinator Oscar Fernandez-Taranco said at the signing ceremony that the project would cater for the technical needs in organizing the elections, including voter registration and education, and coordinating election observers and communications.

    He said the main goal was to further strengthen capacity to hold free, fair and credible elections by strengthening the NEC and ZEC and engaging national stakeholders such as the political parties, the media and civil society actors.

    The project will be managed directly by the UNDP, with the funds coming from the UN agency and other donors.

    One thing, in the 2010 Elections; the opposition have to lobby now with the International Community that those ballots for voting be printed by an independent organisation ast UN; otherwise, if printed in China and by money from China; don't expect anything. This country is gone and for those who have hope, is regretable, we will never solve our problems without a proper constitution. Uswahili, uongo, utapeli, ufisadi, mwingi mno, hii nchi haileweki inaenda wapi!

    Unajua itabidi tuwatolee uvivu; like a year ago I started working on two papers "How the Donor Community Corrupted CCM Government and Ruined our Chance for Self-Reliance and Economic Prosperity".. na nyingine which remains untitled. These very people who tower over us as champions of democracy have contributed to the corruption of our political system. These donors are not the solution to our problems they are in fact the very causes behind them.

    Nafikiri nakubaliana nawe. Hao hao ndio waliokuja na mapendekezo na mashindikizo ya kufanya daftari la kudumu na kutaka Zanzibar ID iwe ndio turufu ya kuingizwa katika daftari hilo. Hao hao sasa wanakuja na kauli ya kuipinga Zanzibar ID na kusema yale waliyoshindikiza yafuatwe kuwa siyo. Ni wababaishaji tu - wanataka kubabaisha jamii yetu.

    Hivyo votu - sasa kama unasema vipo- basi ujue ni kwa pande zote. Na Upinzani (CUF) ni waswahili, matapeli, wanafiki, waongo, na wababaishaji wa kutupwa. Iangalie shilingi katika pande zote- Bro.
