ZANZIBAR NI KWETU: HOW MUCH OF THIS IS FOR ZANZIBAR? ......and of course Zanzibar gets nothing! Hawa jamaa kama hawajatoka kutoka huu Muungano itabidi watungonjee mpaka kila region ya Bara ifikie hapo ilipofika Zanzibar ili na wao Waznz wapate kuenda mbele! This Union doesn't make sense at all. Hatuwezi sisi kuwashughulikia wao kimaendeleo wakati wengi ya watu wetu Bara bado mpaka leo after 50 years of Uhuru bado wanaokota maji ya kunywa! Zanzibar kila pahala ipo mifereji. They waited for almost 50 years and now they can wait again for another 50 years before they get any benefit from this Union!
