I am of a view that the only way to ultimately remove The Revolutionary Party of Tanzania from power through an election is by promulgating and promoting a radical conservative reform agenda. By 'conservative reform agenda' I mean policies that are based on certain founding principles of our nation (thus we conserve them) but even more a more modern African Conservatism. This "African Conservatism" I propose would be recognized by its pro-family, pro-life, pro-business, and pro-national security. More so, this radical agenda will be and must be the one that aims at a complete and comprehensive dismantling of corrupt system that has been established in the country over the past three decades (of course others might argue even a little longer than that). It is this system which I for one believe has created and sustained the level of poverty in the country while at the same time - as Nyerere articulated in 1995- has created a small number of super-millionaires who live in their own paradise in the midst of extreme poverty! For some of us who were called to assist in the formulation of CHADEMA's election manifesto for the last General Elections of 2010 we understood rather clearly that the only way to create a popular interest for ordinary voters is through a bold and audacious agenda for change. It was this agenda that called the nation to hope not just any 'hope' like "Obama's hope" but a desire for true and consequential political and leadership change. I believe towards 2015 this hope need to be articulated through a well defined agenda involving all the major sectors of Tanzanians political, economic, social and cultural life. Unfortunately, for now this agenda is not clear and not well articulated. As I listen to many opposition politicians the language is not encouraging, their plans disheartening and their message somewhat self-serving and ambiguous. I followed carefully the just ended budget session in Dodoma and one thing was very clear - there opposition politicians who look at CCM as somehow the instrument for change. These politicians still beg and advise the ruling government to come up with 'policies' that would improve the lives of ordinary Tanzanians. It is a shame - indeed it is! - that instead of condemning the failed policies of the ruling party these politicians try so hard to advise the government to come up with something 'better'! It is for this reason, I believe the major challenge toward 2015 especially for CHADEMA is to recognize and agree on a true radical reform agenda. Not a moderate, liberal or a 'reconciliatory' agenda but a true transformative political reformation agenda which will lead to rapid reconstruction of our nation spirit and institutions. The fundamental question that needs to be answer is this: what are the main elements of this radical agenda and how can CHADEMA or any other party for that matter create such an agenda before the General Elections of 2015? What would be the major components or elements of such an agenda? Can a party with such a radical economic, political and social agenda win an election without being seen or considered to be an ultra-conservative party?
