Unafikiri ulisooma vizuri hii speeech, hebu rudia tena na tena
I have called this press conference to say a few words. The election campaign of 2015 is over. The people of Tanzania have spoken and we must all listen. Some will be happy with what they have heard, others will not.The time now is for maturity, for composure and for compassion. To the victors, I say this: you have the right to celebrate but do so with a magnanimous heart. Enjoy the hour but remember that a term of government is for years.Remember that the next election will judge you also. Treat those who you have vanquished with the respect and humility that you would expect in your own hour of defeat.I know that all Tanzanians will expect such behaviour and I hope it will be delivered. Speaking for myself and my party, we will accept the results.
We are a democratic party and we know no other way.It is not for us to deny the Tanzanian people. We never rigged, we never cheated, and we never knowingly abused state funds. We simply did what we thought was best for Tanzania. I hope the next government will act likewise in years to come.Tanzania deserves a decent democratic process. Indeed, Tanzania must build on her past victories. Our independence was hard won, our democracy secured with blood.Tanzania must not go backwards, we must all face the future and go forward as one nation. Not to do so would dishonour our history.To my party, to the CCM candidates who did not win, the lesson is simple. Next time we must try harder. We fought a good campaign. It was disciplined. I still believe we had a good message and we reached every part of the country.We travelled to all nine provinces and we spoke to all Tanzanians. To those who worked every hour of the day, I say thank you. You have done your best. But, sadly, sometimes our best is not good enough.Do not be disheartened. The CCM will be back. We must all face the reality that sometimes it is time for change. Since 1991, the CCM has been in power. I believe we have done a good job on behalf of all Tanzanians.Mwl. Julius Nyerere led us to a genuine multi-party state and introduced the private sector to our key industries.
Tanzania was liberated by CCM ideal but maybe we became complacent with our ideals. Maybe we did not listen, maybe we did not hear.Did we become grey and lacking in ideas? Did we lose momentum? Our duty now is to go away and reflect on any mistakes we may have made and learn from them. If we do not, we do not deserve to contest power again.The Tanzania we know today was built by a CCM government. We know our place in history and we know that we can come back to lead again in the future. A new leadership will be chosen, and that leadership will be from the younger generation.My generation the generation of the independence struggle must now give way to new ideas; ideas for the 21st century. From this defeat, a new, younger CCM will be re-born. If I can serve that re-building, then I will.I must thank my cabinet for delivering on our promises. We did a lot of good for Tanzania. Many of our projects will blossom into bright flowers.
Some of you will be back to serve Tanzania again I know you will do your best for your party and for your country.To the civil servants and government officials, it has been a privilege to serve with you. We have worked many long hours together. We did it not for ourselves but for Tanzania. Serve your next masters as you did me, and Tanzania will be in good hands.I must thank my family and my wife. They have stood by me and I cannot ask for more loyalty than that which they have displayed. I love you all dearly and I will always be in your debt.Being president is hard work, it takes long hours of work. And because of it, I have not always been there for you. Yet, still you were there for me.Words cannot express the depth of my love for you all. All I ask is that my family continues to serve Tanzania as I have sought to do.But my greatest thanks must go to the Tanzanian people. We may be a small country on the middle of Africa but we are a great nation. Serving you has been a pleasure and an honour. I wish I could have done more, I wish I had more time to give.Our potential is great. Our resources are impressive.
I urge you all now to rally behind your new president. Yes, we may have different ideas but we both want the same thing a better Tanzania.Now is not the time for violence and retribution. Now is the time to unite and build tomorrows Tanzania together. Only by working together can we achieve a more prosperous Tanzania.In my years of retirement, I hope to watch Tanzania grow. I genuinely want Tanzania to flourish. We should all want Tanzania to flourish. So, I congratulate Michael Sata on his victory.I have no ill feeling in my heart; there is no malice in my words. I wish him well in his years as president. I pray his policies will bear fruit.But now it is time for me to step aside. Now is the time for a new leader. My time is done. It is time for me to say good bye.May god watch over the Tanzanian people and may he bless our beautiful nation.I thank you.
Japo ni Plagiarism tunajaribu tu ku-assume Hii ni hotuba ya Banda aliyoitoa juzi aliposhindwa uchaguzi
am very much impressed with political muturity shown by the ex- pressident who was in power and was commander in chief of all the corhessive forces yet he did not abuse his organs to let him stay in power. it is a lesson to ccm not to base on counting finger and think that it is a verteran party and has a tiltle deed for rulling this country. I real appreciate banda for his democratic wisdom to accept peoples decisions. long live banda to see ccm stepping aside in 2015!
