    Cleric rallies support for President Kikwete
    By Devota Mwachang`a
    31st March 2011
    Gospel Revival Centre pastor Anthony Lusekelo has called on Tanzanians to stop blaming President Jakaya Kikwete for problems facing the country, and instead support him in ruling the nation better.
    The cleric, whose main chapel is based at Ubungo Kibangu in Dar es Salaam, made the call in the city on Tuesday at a press conference he convened to give his views on the current state of the country’s peace and unity.
    He said Tanzanians, including religious and political leaders, should respect the head of state, advising them to stop blaming him for any shortcomings because they were part of it and some problems resulted from natural factors.
    The clergyman said people had been blaming Kikwete for everything going wrong like high prices for oil and food, forgetting other good things he has done for the nation and its people.
    “There are some people, who stand publicly pointing an accusing finger at President Kikwete for the problems facing the country. This behaviour is not good before the eyes of God,” Lusekelo said.
    He said some people believed that if they use abusive language and speak bad things to the head of state they would portray their citizenship and win accolades from the public, as brave ones. However, he said that’s not a good manner.
    “Where such behaviour of blaming our leaders has come from? When will it end…this country is like a car and Kikwete is the driver. So, the action of speaking bad things upon him could confuse causing him to lead it into a pit,” the pastor argued.
    Lusekelo called on people to build a culture of appreciating their leaders while still alive, instead of praising them after their death. “Praising deceased leaders and ignore them while alive is wrong,” noted Luselelo.
    The cleric called on critics to give him chance to fulfill all promises he made during last year’s election campaigns, including facilitating the process of re-writing the country’s constitution and dealing with foreign born problem of high food prices due to unstable oil prices in the international markets.
    Meanwhile, Lusekelo has said the National Assembly lacks unity and solidarity, saying that it had turned into a forum for personal attacks, something which he said was degrading its image in the public.
