24th October 10 CCM executing ambitious hospital project in Moshi Daniel Ondigo Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) has planned to spend over Sh2.9 billion to construct a modern ward at Mawenzi Hospital that will admit over 100 in-patients if it retains its ruling party status after the forthcoming general elections. Speaking to The Guardian on Sunday here, Kilimanjaro CCM Regional Secretary Stevin Kazidi said the government had set aside Sh600 million in the 2008/9 financial year, and Sh700 million in the subsequent year for the project. Some Sh1,550 million has been earmarked for the purpose during the 2010/11 financial year, he said. Kazidi said the building of its own kind will have anti-natal care unit, post-natal care unit, gynecological ward, neo-natal ward, labour room, theatre, library, doctors' offices, major operations section and Intensive Care Unit. A lift would also be installed for use by patients, he explained further. The CCM official said the party had implemented over 95 percent of pledges made in 2005 in all sectors, including education, agriculture, cooperatives, environment and infrastructure development in the region. He attributed the successes to good governance, transparency among CCM leaders and coordination between the party and local government officials. In the agricultural sector, Kazidi said his party had teamed up with other stakeholders to scale up the annual agricultural budget from Sh 202,519,000 in 2005 to Sh 5,125,280,000 in 2010. Either, in implementing his party manifesto, Kazidi said the party had bought 78 power tillers distributed in all seven districts in the region in 2010 from only 15 power tillers in 2005. If voters renew CCM's mandate, they are planning to scale up provision of the same farm implement to 150 by 2015. Likewise, he said through coordination with other key partners, the government had increased the number of tractors from 345 in 2005 to 535 in 2010 and is projecting to increase the number to 700 by 2015. The party had also been instrumental in sensitizing the people to form Savings and credit groups – SACCO, and has helped to consolidate Small and medium enterprises - SMEs. Between 2005 and 2010, he said, they dished out Sh3,077,570,000 to some 226 SMEs. The number of SMEs had risen to 226 from 142 registered in 2005," added the CCM regional secretary. The party had also invested in environmental conservation and to ensure this mission is accomplished, CCM has rejuvenated and conserved 414 water catchment areas by the end of 2010 from 122 recorded in 2005. Nursery schools had risen to 857 in 2010 from 691 registered in 2005, Kazidi explained, adding that standard one registration had risen by 102 percent from 97 percent recorded in 2005. Either, the number of Primary schools has increased to 932 in 2010 from 885 recorded in 2005, out of which 45 primary schools are privately owned.

Hivi nani hajui over 60 percent ya shule za Kilimanjaro au hata Hospitals ikiwemo the leading one in the region i.e. KCMC ni juhudi za taasisi binafsi zikiwemo za kidini na Wazazi na ushirika? hiyo Ward ya bilioni 2.9 hivi kweli inaweza kuwapa kura kwa watu wa Kilimanjaro? nani asiyejua kikatiba ni Wajibu wa serikali iliyopo kutoa huduma hizo whether jimbo liko chini ya CCM or Upinzani? au whether wamepigia Urais CCM au upinzani? Pls acheni siasa za matope na mta-win peoples heart easily.... CCM au serikali si mtekelezaji wa miradi mingi ila wahisani! na kwa kuwajua tabia za chama tawala na serikali dhalimu iliyopo huwa wanatoa hela wakisisitiza kwa signatures na mikataba zitumike wapi! So pleeease CCM grow up!
