Did you know that mine operators in Tanzania pay black Tanzanians less than they pay anybody else? Within our mines, a white employee with the same qualifications and experience as some black folks would earn several times what the unfortunate blacks earn! And, if you are black but do not come from Tanzania, you get to earn a lot more than if you were a black Tanzanian! So, Barrick Gold and the other companies that are carting off our natural resources pay their white employees much more than they pay their Ghanaian employees, and pay their Tanzanian employees a lot less than they pay all other Africans with the same qualifications and experience. This color and nationality based salary system seems to me to be distinctly evil. Employees should be paid for what they do rather than for what they are. Why should a Tanzanian, a Ghanaian and a Canadian Geologist who graduated from the same university, in the same year, and with comparable results, end up getting greatly different pay levels from the same employer, and at the same place? We demand equal pay for work of equal value. We particularly demand that we be treated according to this principle by those that operate in our country. It was precisely for this sort of thing that we fought for our independence. We take offence that Barrick Gold and other mine operators dare to viciously discriminate against us in our own country. What became of Mwalimu's battle cry "Tumeonewa vya kutosha, tumenyonywa vya kutosha, tumenyanyaswa vya kutosha. Sasa tunataka kufanya mapinduzi"?
