    SUBJECT: ZANZIBAR: MOVE TOWARD COALITION GOVERNMENT?

    REF: A. (A) DAR ES SALAAM 768 (NOTAL)
    (B) DAR ES SALAAM 765
    ¶B. (C) DAR ES SALAAM 756 AND PREVIOUS


    Classified By: DCM Larry Andre for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d).

    ¶1. (S) SUMMARY: During Ambassador Lenhardt's credentials call
    on President Kikwete November 12, Kikwete confirmed that
    opposition Civic United Front (CUF) leader Seif Sharif Hamad
    has agreed in principal to serve as Chief Minister in a
    CCM-led government-of-national-unity in Zanzibar. However,
    the details and modalities for such an arrangement are still
    in play, and the deal remains fragile. Failure in
    reconciliation will undoubtedly lead to violence. Since the
    November 5 Karume-Seif meeting, mainstream leaders in both
    parties have been busy working the crowd to shore up support.
    The idea is to have a package ready for adoption by
    Zanzibar's House of Representatives when it meets again in
    January 2010. For Seif Sharif, this might be the last, best
    hope to wield at least some degree of power before he retires
    from the field. For Karume, it might be that he is building
    guarantees that some of his key loyalist maintain posts in
    any follow-on coalition government. In that way, the
    extensive land and business acquisitions of Karume and his
    family would be protected, if not his political legacy. We
    should continue to support Kikwete and his efforts to foster
    reconciliation in Zanzibar. However, any "unity government"
    in Zanzibar also must mean more Pembans in leadership
    positions, regardless of CCM or CUF affiliation. Currently
    there are none even though Pemba makes up 40% of Zanzibar.

    My take
    Maalim Seif sold CUF zamani sana!

    karume ni fisadi? Property zake ninazozijua hapa dar zinaleta maswali. Jamaa ana own barclays house, tpdfl building na amani place ohio street! Sijui kama mshahara wa urais wa zanzibar ni mkubwa hivyo. Zanzibar pia ana properties kiasi cha kuhitaji assurance ya kulindwa! Nchi hii......mmh!
