Now we should address the circumstances which failed us as a Nation .There is no better time to tell ourselves the home truth than now. To say most Tanzanians have given up totally on any hope for a positive change is an understatement. We have reached the level where our citizens are getting blasphemous, and openly asking God why He seems to have abandoned us. The reason is not far-fetched. Our squalid condition has defied all logic. We are probably the only country that is retrogressing, while those countries that looked up to us for succour have since left us to wallow in our self-delusion of grandeur as the so-called Great and the most peaceful nation in Africa. Even the war-torn zones, where our gallant men and women laid down their lives for peace to rein are marching forward in steady progress, while we continue to make headline news for all the wrong reasons. A leader must worry about image. Unfortunately, Tanzanias ruling party Chama cha Mapinduzi seems incapable, and unwilling, to prevent our descent into total chaos and destruction. All the blame must go to a leader who has demonstrated a lack of courage to take on the useless system that has kept Tanzania in this dangerous state of perpetual coma. We must move beyond polemics and seek various answers to the many questions plaguing our nation. Some of these solutions may appear drastic, but it should be known to all that we cannot cure cancer with Paracetamol. A leader must be a good doctor who can diagnose ailments and prescribe the right medication. If I were JK, Ill promptly cure myself of the optical illusion being dangled before me by the sycophants in the party of incompetent people who are telling me I must run for another term in office 2010. These are characters who would say the same things to every leader now and in the future. He must remember that no one was more eminently qualified to rule forever than Nelson Mandela, but the great statesman chose to quit the stage while the ovation was loudest. He has continued to generate feverish attention from all over the world. Mandela has shown that it is not how long, it is how well. True leaders are those who possess the will to be different, the courage to dare, and not the timidity of maintaining the status quo. A ceremonial leader would always end up a tragic figure. A leader needs all the stamina in the world to tackle matters of state effectively. A leader must have a mission, and the vision to project it. A leader cannot be ambivalent. He must have a clear understanding of the issues at stake, and set his priorities from Day One. The president must step in powerfully and put a permanent end to this ding dong affair. A situation in which our streets are flooded with able-bodied youths who are not in school plus those who are not gainfully employed is too dangerous. These youths are the hopes of our future. A leader must protect the salt of the world. There must be continuity in government. Many investors are bewildered by the abrasive style of our governments. Each one comes with a new malady. This incurable habit is one of the reasons many investors have no confidence in erecting permanent structures on our soil. Many of the investors merely come to do business here and take the money out. A leader must imbue confidence. The few great Tanzanians who braved all odds to stay and invest at home are being humiliated left, right and center, as if there are no better ways to conflict resolution. Our industrialists have been ruined. The bankers are in disarray. The oil merchants are dying. The poor have lost hope He must surround himself with the right calibre of people who can operate on the same frequencies with him. The team determines whether a leader would fail or not. A leader must seek good disciples.
