    Should the Tanzanians have the right to know how our political parties are financed? Why not make it into a law, the disclosure of any penny spent by the parties?

    Wakati sasa umefika wa kubadilisha sheria nyingi zilizoruhusu uundwaji wa vyama ili mambo yake yasiwe ya kibinafsi bali yafuate sheria. Hii iwe ni pamoja na
    1. Matumizi ya vyama
    2. Jinsi ya kumpa/kumnyang'anya mtu uanachama na
    3. Jinsi chaguzi zinavyofanyika ndani ya vyama ili zisitegemee ubavu wa vigogo ndani ya hivyo vyama.
    Mifano mizuri ni matumizi ya ajabu ajabu ya pesa ndani ya CCM, suala la uchaguzi na baadaye kufukuzwa uanachama kwa Nape Mnauye ndani ya UVCCM au suala la marehemu Wangwe kusimamishwa uanachama ndani ya CHADEMA.

    CCM employees to get higher pay

    Regional secretaries and departmental heads of the ruling CCM have had their salaries raised to as high as 1m/- per month with immediate effect, The Guardian has confirmed.

    Sources close to the party have intimated that the revised package, which is likely to benefit big shots most, is aimed at motivating the beneficiaries following the reviewed minimum wage proposed by the government for civil servants.

    It is reported that most CCM employees in the categories to be covered will receive a minimum of 800,000/- a month in addition to other allowances.

    According to Saleh Ramadhan Feruzi, the party`s deputy secretary general for Zanzibar, the changes were coming ``as part of a normal procedure``.

    ``The increments are in line with the new salary scales for civil servants to be effected as directed by the government. We will also increase the minimum wage to 100,000/-,`` he said.

    However, he dismissed as groundless suggestions that the changes would benefit senior officials of the party at the expense of those in the lower ranks.

    He said the party had the funds it needs to pay its employees higher salaries ``because we have reliable sources of income``, adding: ``The salary adjustments are in consonance with the party�s financial muscle.``

    The new package comes only days after the party�s National Executive Committee met in Dodoma to deliberate on, among other issues, the stalled peace accord (muafaka) negotiations between CCM and the opposition Civic United Front.

    Only days to the scheduled Tarime parliamentary by-election next month, the just-ended meeting also discussed ways to combat electoral corruption during elections.

    A few years ago, the ruling party massively downsized its workforce in what was widely described as a move to cut costs, reduce bureaucracy and enhance efficiency.
