Naomba kutofautiana na wewe pale unaposema stratagy za Nyerere haziwezi kufanya kazi katika dunia ya leo. Nitatoa mfano wa eneo la madini kuonyesha kuwa kuna maeneo ambayo bado tunaweza kufanya vizuri hata kwa misingi ya azimio la Arusha.
Tulikuwa na shirika la madini (STAMICO) ambalo sina hakika kama bado lipo. Shirika hili lilikuwa na geologists na wahandisi wa migodi wa kutosha. Shirika hili lingewezeshwa kupata mkopo wa kununulia mitambo inayohitajika kufanya kazi ya uchimbaji madini chini ya usimamizi wa bodi madhubuti ya wakurugenzi tofauti na hizi tulizozoea ambazo ni bodi za kupeana ulaji na mzigo kwa walipa kodi, ingeweza kufanya vizuri sana. Kwanza serikali ingepata fedha kutokana na gawio toka kwenye faida, (dividends) na pia toka kwenye kodi ambayo ingekuwa 30% ya faida hiyo. Strategy za huyu mzee zilikuwa makini sana, tatizo ni pale alipohamisha watu toka walikoua shirika moja kwenda kuua jingine. China ukiuwa shirika la umma adhabu yako ni kali sana. Ubepari haliwezi kuwa jibu la kila tatizo hasa tunapowapatia mabepari hao mali zetu bila malipo yoyote.
no-name said:I understand that the French guy actually wrote the whole of the Arusha declaration for Nyerere which outlines the Ujamaa concept. I have the guy's name at home somewhere I ll write it here when I find it. It was aparently in newspapers etc outside Tanzania in those days that it is this guy who wrote it for Nyerere and Nyerere was asked on a few occasions by students etc in Tanzania to comment on the truth of that and he simply told off whoever asked it very angrily and they stoped asking as their fate was now at risk with such questions. he never did deny it in Tanzania or to the newspapers abroad. I think a lot of the intellectuals and students and politicians then knew that he never wrote it but could not say anything.
no-name said:The French guy's name is Rene Du Mont. He must have died some years ago. At the time he was a lecturer in Agriculture and Development studies at a Private University in Paris. He wrote a book titled "L'Afrique est mal Parti" which was translated in swahili by Gabriel Ruhumbika and the swahili title was "Afrika imekwenda kombo". Some people say he wrote teh whole thing some say he gave Nyerere the whole idea and directed him on hwo to write it and go about it but yeah either way that it was this guy's idea is what they say.
critic said:So Nyerere was a plagiarist huh? I dont know about this French guy but I know Nyerere's thinking was heavily influenced by his african upbringing and British/Scotish socialism, especially Fabianism during his Edinbrugh days.
Nyerere has been accussed of not giving credit for his "work" in an almost plagiarist ways.case in point is the Kagera War declaration speech at Diamond Jubilee when he said "Nia tunayo, Uwezo tunao na nguvu tunazo" or some similar bull, come to find out it was a very popular British WW1 pop song to mobilize the Brits.
Mzee alifikiri hatutamshtukia!
Magufuli JOHNMJ ndio nani? Nimeshindwa kutamtambua kwa kumsikiliza peke yake! Ila watanzania tunaweza sana kuongea kuliko kutenda! Kama kuna mtu alikuwa na maneno yeneye kutia hamasa na matumaini JK ni nambari wani! Lakini hajafanya chochote kinachofanana na maneno yake!
Utafiti wangu binafsi unanionyesha kwamba watu wengi wanaoongea sana huwa si watendaji wazuri! Watendaji wazuri ni wale watu vitendo zaidi kuliko maneno! Mfano Mkapa!
