    We oppose them not because we hate them, we do not - for hate is a blinding force. We oppose them rather because they stand for everything that we hate. They have become defenders of a corrupt political regime, guardians of vice and envoys of incompetence! My friends, we oppose them because their interests stand opposed to that of the majority of our people. They are in utter and absolute contempt of the people of Tanzania. In this then there is neither compromise nor retreat or surrender.

    Its a choice that we didn't have to make but by their actions it was a choice forced upon us. A choice that was thrown upon us as if we were mere automatons! They look down on those who oppose them as if we are mere mortals living at the mercy of their Immortal Selves. They look at us and consider us to be troublemakers, hatemongers, and political novices of the First Order! They hate our guts to question them, they hate our resolve to despise them, they hate our audacity to dare to be free minded and independent in our views. For we do not tremble when they cough nor do we bow when they move! They hate that we do not remain silent when they speak, and when they laugh we frown and do not laugh with them! When they stand we sit!

    This is the nature of what lies ahead of the upcoming political showdown. They will push the so called "new constitution" upon us. They will make us pay for not agreeing with them (or not pretending that we agree!), they will use all the tools at their disposal to make us recognize who they are- our almighty rulers! The police, security agencies and even the military will be used to instill fear in our hearts! O' my friends we will be required either to agree with laughter or remain forever silent if not in our homes then in our graves!

    What choice then is left for a free people? What other option is there for those who don't want to sing a 'redemption song' in the land of captivity?

    We will continue to oppose them until they recognize the validity of our arguments and step aside to let change effected for the better future of our people!
    Thus, to oppose them is quintessential Tanzanian. - MMM

    Poor infrastructure,
    Poor health services,
    Poor education,

    You're right MMM. We have every reason to oppose them. We won't tire, all the way to go till they surrender and get our country liberated. God is on our side.

    Haya ndio makosa makubwa zaidi, kabla hujaweza kwenda mitaani ni lazima uweze kwenda vichwani mwa watu kwanza. Ndio maaana niliita hili ni "mgongano wa kifikra". Huwezi kwenda mitaani kama hujui unasimamia nini na wenzako wanasimamia nini. Sasa hivi watu wanapokwenda mitaani lengo halijawa wazi bado na kifikra wengi hawajaweza kuarticulate vizuri kile wanachokipinga na kile wanachokitaka. Hatuwezi kwenda mitaani kwa sababu "tunaichukia CCM"! au "tunataka CCM iondolewe madarakani". Hivyo vinavutia lakini havitoshi.

    We oppose them, with our key board, on the street, in prayer's house, in daladala and even in our sleep, we oppose them. We oppose them becuase through their actions they are condeming our future and that of children and children's children to poverty. We oppose them.

    What makes you think Chadema is not corrupt elite? I believe the entire political system of this country construe of corrupt bureaucrat who are there to full fill their personal agenda. I propose wananchi wajiundie their own liberal political movement kama UK independent party au Liberal Democrat kupambana na this systemic failure of our political structure. Vyenginevyo tunaruka kijanga tunaenda kwenye janga hamna lolote.

    Mdondoaji msisitizo uko kwenye "ruling corrupt elite" au "corrupt ruling elite"... matatizo yetu hayajasababishwa na watu walio nje ya utawala, bali ya wenye kushika utawala. Sasa mtagombana na walio nje ya madaraka kwanini wakati hawana wizara, idara, au afisa hata mmoja wa serikali?

    Na je una uhakika gani kuwa wale walioko nje ya utawala wakitawala hawatatupa matatizo? Im very skeptical lol.
    Ninavyoona tuna tatizo kubwa mno la kimfumo/systemic.Tumejijengea value system yenye kuamini/kukumbatia na kutukuza rushwa na ufisadi.Siamini kuwa kwa hatua tuliyofikia kuna utawala utakuja Tanzania kwa miaka ya karibuni utakaokuwa tofauti.

    Ndio sababu tunataka kuwa na katiba tunayoona inafaa. Ktiba itakayotupa mamlaka ya kuwawajibisha viongozi, na kushiriki katika maamuzi yote makubwa.

    Hapo kwenye red: Nani akilikuambia Liberal Democrat ni clean? Angalia expenses scandal, they were all in the game. Sasa hivi Vince Cable (kigogo wa Liberal Democrat) yuko kwenye kasheshe ya kodi! Lakini kwa wenzetu wana system inayowezesha kupambana na matatizo ya kimaadili kwenye uongozi wa nchi.

    Hapa wananchi wanaweza kufanya chochote kama mkuu wa mkoa ni mwizi (wote ni wezi) au wanaweza kumuondoa mkurugenzi wa TAKUKURU kwa sababu anazunguka dunia kula bata? Wote hawa ni wateule wa mtu mmoja and they couldn't care less tunakula nyasi au tunapigwa mabomu as long as the 'boss' is happy. KATIBA MPYA kwa mujibu wa matakwa ya wananchi muhimu kabisa otherwise this country is heading down the drain! Sadly!

    Me too!

    hii value system haijatokea hewani, kuna watu walioko madarakani walioitengeneza na wananufaika nao. Ndio maana naamini ni vizuri sana kabla ya kupatia chama kingine hatamu yauongozi wa taifa ni lazima tuone kuwa chama hicho hakina mazingira yale yale yaliyomo ndani ya CCM. Wananchi wa Zambia walipomuondoa Kaunda na kumuingiza Chiluba hawakujua kuwa wamebadilisha sarafu ile ile isipokuwa pande mbili tofauti. Matokeo yake miaka ishirini baadaye waliamua kutoa nafasi kwa chama ambacho kilikuwa kimeonesha kuwa msimamo wake ni kuufumua mfumo uliopo na kuanza upya - chini ya Michael Satta.

    Kuna uwezekano mkubwa tu kuwa chama chochote cha Tanzania ambacho kiko sasa - kama hakitafanyiwa mabadiliko makubwa- kitajikuta kwenye matatizo yale yale yaliyopo CCM kwa sababu vyama vyote vya siasa nchini vimecopy na kupaste kwa kiasi kikubwa mfumo wa kisiasa wa CCM na hivyo kucopy potential ya matokeo yake vile vile.

    Katiba siyo panacea ya matatizo ya Watanzania.Katiba mpya haitaweka ugali mezani.

    Je, na wewe una uhakika gani hayo matatizo unayofikiri yatakuwepo? What you have raised is a very tricky issue that leads to a lot of dodgy questions and answers!

    Hapo kwenye nyekundu, hiyo value system ipo contended na the ruling elite, opposition elite or?!

    Sasa mama, unatoka kwenye BIGGER issue za System na kuongelea ugali mezani!!!
    Naona siasa zinakuchosha sana siku hizi.

    Mimi nakubaliana na MMM kwamba lazima watu wafahamu nini hasa hakipo sahihi katika ...whatever we may want to calll.....Mfumo/katiba. Tukishakifahamu kwa hakika, basi tutake kibadilishwe. Mimi sina matatizo na nani anabadilisha as far as kinabadilishwa fo good, sio kibadilishwe cover ili wabadilishaji waendelee kula bata.

    Wenye nafasi ya kukubali mabadiliko hayo wakikataa, basi ni lazima kuyalazimisha kwa namna yeyote ile. swala la nani ataweza kuongoza mabadiliko ya system baada ya kumuondoa mdhalimu hilo tuliache kwanza.

    The issue at hand is get rid of the enemy of the people.

    Kinachohitaji kueleweka na kila mmoja wetu ni kuwa huu si mgogoro wa nafsi (not personal). Yaani, tusiufanye uonekane kuwa ni mgongano wa mtu na mtu au watu na watu- ni mgogoro wa kimtazamo na malengo. Kwamba, hawa tunaopingana nao ni ndugu zetu, jamaa zetu, na wakati mwingine ni rafiki zetu. Lakini tunaamini wamechagua upande usio sahihi wa historia ndio maana tunawakatalia. Tuweze kutofautisha tofauti hii ambayo ni ya kimtazamo na tofauti ya maslahi ambapo baadhi ya watu wanatofautiana na wengine kwa sababu binafsi za maslahi (nafasi anayoshikilia ningekuwa mimi mentality).

    This is bigger than ourselves.
