Mr Kikwete was addressing a campaign rally at Mazoezi Primary School grounds in Korogwe. There has been a huge problem with the sisal farms. People need them for agricultural purposes. Leave it to us, well see how to handle the problem, he told the rally amid applause. I dont plan to nationalize the investors farms. I will see how we can buy them and distribute them to the people, he added. Mr Kikwete said although owners have not developed the farms for the past 10 to 20 years, the government will consult with them and come up with a durable solution. Commenting on a fruit processing factory, the CCM presidential candidate, said the government will find out why it closed down. Mr Kikwete said the ruling party should be re-elected for nothing but its successful implementation of the partys election manifesto of 2005 in areas of infrastructure, health and education.
