    THE president of Tanzania, Jakaya Kikwete, was sworn in for another five-year term on November 6th. Official results saw Mr Kikwete win 61% of the vote. The opposition challenge came from Wilibrod Slaa of Chadema, who won 26% of the vote. As predicted, Mr Kikwete's ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi party (CCM) cantered home on the strength of the rural vote; Mr Kikwete got 80% of the vote in many remoter regions.

    Election observers from the European Union and elsewhere say the party used the state to advance its own interests. No surprise there. CCM has run Tanzania in various guises since the country's independence in 1964. Most of its elders hold to socialist and pan-African values, at least publicly; the party dogma remains statist, even if it has an awful record of delivering government services. The increased strength of Chadema and CUF, an opposition party popular with coastal Muslims, forced Mr Kikwete to work harder during the campaign than in previous elections. He claims to have driven 24,000 kilometres and flown for 180 hours to attend 706 rallies.

    Mr Slaa has disputed the result, alleging that state intelligence operatives were used to doctor the results in some areas. Mr Kikwete appeared dismissive of Chadema in his inauguration speech, saying that the election was over and troublemakers would be dealt with severely. It remains to be seen if Mr Slaa will be labeled a troublemaker. In any event, the CCM party machine will be increasingly nervous. Mr Slaa's campaign appealed to entrepreneurial smallholders and small businessmen who feel suffocated by graft and listlessness at the top. Significantly, Mr Slaa won 56% of the vote in Arusha, Tanzania's second city and narrowly defeated Mr Kikwete in Mwanza, a major city on the shores of Lake Victoria.

    Mimi naona hata kusema 'Tanzania ilipata uhuru mwaka 1961' bado sio sahihi (strictly speaking!). Tanzania started to exist from 26 April 1964, ikiwa ni muungano wa nchi mbili huru, moja ilipata uhuru wake Desemba 9, 1961 na nyingine ilipata Desemba 10, 1963 ('uhuru' uliofuatiwa na 'uhuru kamili' - mapinduzi ya Januari 12,1964).

    Correct to say a united republic since 1994 but Tanganyika and Zanzibar gained independence in earlier dates?

    Economist wamekuwa so-so siku hizi, hasa kuhusu masuala ya Africa. Kama unatafuta habari za Africa kutoka The Economist unatafuta kutoka wrong source.

    Ukisoma habari waliyompamba January utacheka.
