    Dear Ndugu Musyoka, many thanks for the advice, but perhaps another time..?

    I believe some things are simply not done.

    For instance, at a moment when a neighbouring country is having a particularly intense electoral campaign you do not, just do not, weigh in on any contender’s side if you are anyone of importance in your own country.

    Whatever your preference in the neighbours’ political contest, you do not go public with it, for that makes for extremely poor neighbourliness.

    That’s a simple lesson that the Vice President of Kenya, Kalonzo Musyoka, would do well to learn, and learn well.

    He recently went on record as saying that it would be good for Tanzanians to re-elect President Jakaya Kikwete because, according to him, the East African Community still needs him.

    As sentiments go, there is nothing in Mr Musyoka’s statement. Indeed, there are millions of people, in Tanzania and elsewhere who would like to see Kikwete returned in the October election, and that wish goes down as being absolutely legit.

    What falls short of basic propriety, however, is the station occupied by the maker of that statement.

    Mr Musyoka, in case he has forgotten, is the Vice President of Kenya, Tanzania’s neighbour, and whatever he says in public on Tanzania is construed to represent what official Kenya thinks on matters Tanzanian.

    So, by a very small extension, one would be forgiven for thinking that the Kenyan government has already made up its mind as to whom it would like to see attend EAC summits after October.

    I strongly suspect this is not so, and that Mr Musyoka “misspoke,” in Hillary Clinton’s parlance. But this “misspeech” on the part of a ranking official of a neighbouring country can have grave diplomatic consequences.

    A little recent history of the region comes in handy here:
    Suppose that, in December 2007, when the citizens of Kenya went to those fateful polls, the vice president of Tanzania had voiced his support for one of the candidates in that particular election, and that the results had been the same as they came to be.

    Would President Kikwete have had the legitimacy and moral authority to play the role he came to play when matters soured?

    Would the contestant, have agreed to be mediated by a party that had already shown its hand in such a partisan manner?

    Mr Musyoka may not know this, but there were many people in the region who thought that Raila Odinga, leader of ODM, was the Kenyan leader most suited to help the region consolidate co-operation and foster greater integration.

    Needless to say, Mr Musyoka had other ideas, and his attitude crucially affected the outcome of that election, with the consequences that we all know, and which brought Kikwete to the rescue.

    Tanzania is engaged in perhaps its most hotly contested election in a while, and passions are wont to rise now and then.

    There have been unfortunate accusations and counteraccusations, calumnies and vituperations flying in all directions, involving the main contenders in a contest that is long on rhetoric but short on ideological substance, a heady mixture that could, mark my word, could, lead to trouble.

    In such circumstances, people of goodwill and wise counsel in the region are advised to follow the developments with care, get to understand the intricacies of the campaigns and the personalities behind them, even though most of what comes out of the campaigns will be promises that cannot be delivered.

    The Community now boasts five member states, and each one of these will be holding periodic elections. We are going to have elections every year (almost), with the terrible toll that elections tend to take on Africa’s fragile polities. What the region needs least are politicians who misspeak.

    Let’s remind ourselves again, that all politics is local. Mr Musyoka would do well to — what else for a born-again gentleman? — pray for Tanzania’s elections to pass off peacefully, but to otherwise let well enough alone.

    Chanzo: The East African

    There are a few things one has got to know about the Vice President of Kenya Mr. Musyoka before one takes him seriously.

    • Mr. Musyoka was one of the Presidential aspirants in the General Election in Kenya.
    • Mr. Musyoka could not even garner 10% of votes cast.
    • Mr. Musyoka was perceived by 90% of Kenyans as a playboy and so rejected him.
    • Mr. Musyoka was used by Kibaki as a spoiler for ODM and after elections was rewarded with the vice presidency.
    • Mr. Musyoka, like our current leader, lacks the vision, the acumen, the aggresiveness and the qualities of a serious leader.
    • Mr. Musyoka's only quality like that or our own leader, was claimed to be his good looks.
    • Mr. Musyoka is a joke and an opportunist and such statements from him come as no surprise.
    • Mr. Musyoka shares a lot in common with Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete our current President.
    Just as the people of Kenya rejected Mr. Musyoka, so Tanzanians should reject his twin brother, Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, come October 31st.

    Thank you "General" for telling him the truth. He got to put his house in order before trying to export his old fashioned politics. What a rubbish vice president that he is!

    Kenyan's innate lust to plunder tz's resources is exactly what he was confidently communicating. Officially, of course. Kenyan companies form number one investor in tz, once a south African place, the ugly fate we will not easily recover from.

    I therefore, respectifully, disagree with generally. Else, he wanted to play diplomatic himself!

    Namshukuru sana Jenerali Ulimwengu. Maneno aliyoyasema Musyoka yalikuwa ni ya hatari kabisa na yanaonyesha kuwa Kikwete ni kibaraka wa Kenya na ndiyo maana wanataka aendelee kuwepo kwenye uongozi. Sisi hatumtaki kama wanampenda basi wanaweza kumchukua akawatawale.

    Is there any significant difference between Musyoka and Kikwete? If there is, it's Musyoka and Kikwete themselves who know.

    There are, of course, significant differences and similarities. One is a proffessional begger and another is a plunderer. They are both myopic
