Firs,let me remind dr slaa that CDMs constitution supports free market.Free market is controlled mainly by forces of demand and supply. Having said that,I find it weird when you criticize the government for not controlling the ongoing food price hikes esp. sugar.Dont you think that the market regulates itself based on consumer's demand?because by you complaining,you made our weak government ease import tarrifs and invade the market by ordering tens of thousands of tonnes of sugar just to lower the price.This affected government revenues and stimulated a fake,subsidized economy that most African countries relies on. Second,in a free market system and even in international politicoeconomic arena,a public corporation is owned by the public,that is to say the people.But private corporations are owned by private individual(s) and they stand alone as an organisation.LET ME CLARIFY MY POINT,a corporation per se is a PERSON! a corporation is different from the owner(s),a corporation has the rights as a person regardless of who owns it,a corporation can sue or be sued,you can't insist on who owns that corporation,you deal with a corporation as a person,you don't deal with a person as a corporation. CONCLUSIVE REMARKS: I think it's about time you quit talking and asking about who really owns dowans,thats irrelevant of the whole issue and is against what your party stands for.Let the market works on itself and try to mobilise Tanzanians to participate in free market.The dowans saga was actually facilitated by your findings which lacked a concrete case,and was used by our weak govt to revoke a legally bound contract,the result,power shedding and over 60m$ loss to the govt and hence people of Tanzania.We really didnt have to do that! Our govt didnt even pay dowans 24m$ that resulted from them providing electricity to our national grid for 9 months,thats unfair and evil,and it really discourage investment.At the end of the day,Tanzania lost due to arrogance shown by our loud-mouthed,no strategy opposition camp. Sorry,I JUST HAD TO CLEAR THAT OFF MY CHEST!
