Well..we know they are here; we work with them, we work for them, we go to school with them and we have served the national service with them. We have had them in the TPDF as well as in the Police Force (I remember some Singh and Khan). From the very beginning of our Republic Tanzanians of Asian, Arab and European ancestry have served well and some with distinction such as the late Maj. Gen. John Walden (Commander Black Mamba). As I look at the make up of our nation's top leadership I'm beginning to worry and wonder what is happening. Have we failed in our experiment with diversity and inclusion of people of different races who claim Tanzanian citizenship? Have we failed in recruiting all Tanzanians in our public service? How can we fight international criminal gangs or organized crime for example without the help of all Tanzanians? Without the help of Tanzanians of all races how can we create strong national intelligence service? I don't know if we have Tanzanians of different races in our embassies abroad serving in different capacities. Have we now created a de facto one race public service or nation where only black people serve in public service? Is this good for the nation? How can we restore a sense of pride and true unity by including all colors of our nations make up? Or the only other venue for Tanzanians of non-african ancestry to serve is in the politics arena and nowhere else? Why there is no: Tanzanian of non-african ancestry in a. In the Court of Appeal b. In the High Court c. In TPDF High Command (National and Regional) d. In Police and Prison Service High Command (National and Regional) e. In Intelligence Service (none hold any directorial position, I know of no one serving at the HQ) e. In Regional Commissioners f. In DCs .. etc And even more amazing.. Why we don't see them in the Cabinet or as Deputies? Are there any magistrates in Tanzanian who are of non-African ancestry? What about in our Foreign Service, how many works at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or any other Ministry's HQ?in our is the number somewhat representative of the the group in our population? What are we doing wrong? I mean African-Americans make only about 12 percent of US's population but they are almost everywhere in the public service, why in a nation which only 40 or so years ago some of its political elite cried "segregation now, segregation forever" now stands in the world as a symbol of diversity promoted and welcomed. Do our political leadership have a role to play to recruit minorities in Tanzanian into the public service? Do we need to learn how to do this from countries that have made major strides in this area? I mean.. even the former Governor General of Canada is a black woman (originally from Haiti). How can we include our racial minority in our public service? Will it shock some Tanzanians to hear that so and so has been appointed a High Court Judge or head of certain government institution? Especially if her/his name is a Smith or a Patel? I'm longing to see that happen, we have to restore what Tanzania is all about.. we got lost somewhere, we sure did.
