    September 20/2011 the Government of the United republic of Tanzania joined the Open Government Partnership (OGP) initiative (see attachement). And, on December 15/2011 the Government submitted the OGP Action Plan (for review) to the OGP secretariat.
    What is astonishing in the Action Plan is the narrowness and shallowness of the document leave alone factual mis-presentation on a number of issues. The Government says nothing about its ambitious transparency projects such as APRM, EITI, and others. Is it true that such is a normal error or a reflection of lack of genuineness and masquerading behaviour when it comes to hunt donors money?

    My take: the Government would be better advised to invite CSOs and other stakeholders to validate and add value to the document.

    You will be interested to know that for this first time I think last year the PER meeting CSOs were not invited. So mambo hayo ya OGP and EITI ni changa la macho, otherwise CSOs and parliamentarians need to join hands and pressure the government to live to its promises!
