    Zanzibar House of Representatives council secretary Ibrahim Mzee has said the decision by Chadema not to include CUF Members of Parliament in the Union Shadow Government is incorrect.
    He said this at a special forum on constitutional reforms when presenting a discussion topic on the Union Constitution and that of Zanzibar, mainly articulating arguments coming out of debates about weaknesses in the latter.
    Mzee said an argument put forward by Chadema to defend its decision that CUF was already cooperating with CCM in the Isle’s government of national unity (GNU), was insufficient.
    “It wasn’t right for Chadema not to form the Shadow Government with other opposition political parties in Parliament, let them remember that they too cooperate with the government in running some of the local governments,” he said.
    He said that in several district councils, especially in the northern parts of Tanzania Mainland, Chadema had cooperated with CCM in forming local governments, and that it was not right to bring in the consensus of the people of Zanzibar of forming a government of national unity as their excuse to shut out CUF lawmakers.
    Meanwhile, Chadema Zanzibar deputy secretary-seneral Hamad Mussa Yussuf insisted that the decision by his party would stand because it was endorsed by legal meetings of the party.
    He said that CUF in Zanzibar had teamed up with CCM to form the government of national unity and had close to half of the number of cabinet ministers, so it was not practical for them to form the opposition shadow government, while they were already part of the government.
    “How come that one wants to be both in the group of witches and in that of witchdoctors at the same time, how will you manage your responsibilities,” said Yussuf.
    He stressed that CUF “no longer qualifies” as an opposition party and that was the main reason Chadema decided to form a strong opposition shadow government with MPs from his party only.
    CUF and CCM formed the GNU in Zanzibar after the general elections last year to end political antagonism that has ruled in the Isles since the onset of multiparty system.
    In the process towards the formation of the GNU, Zanzibaris participated in a referendum, where they voted in favour of the system.

    I fail to understand how should CUF be in an opposition and at the same time they are in Government. Even if they say the GNU is for Zanzibar, what about Union matters?

    ... eti CUF kikiwa Tanzania Visiwani wananchi tukione Chama Tawala na pindi kiteremkapo tu hapo Magogoni kwenye Azam Fast Ferries sana tuanze kukihesabilia Chama cha Upinzani.

    Jamani wapi na wapi hilo joka lenye kichwa kila upande kuaminika kwa mtindo huo wa changu ni changu na chako pia ni changu???
