After a very long and sad week of going through the phony and exploitive Buzwagi Contract, I decided to take few days off the computer this weekend to clear up mind. It did not take me long enough into my DVD collection to come across the famous SARAFINA - the movie. I decided to watch SARAFINA for the hundredth time this weekend. The movie that not only took me back to read the Buzwagi Contract but also carried my mind way back to thinking about the colonialization process of Tanzania and Africa. At one scene of the movie, there is a soldier who keep saying that black students are destroying (or about to destroy) "his country"... just to paraphrase his words. I have heard the same statement before but not in the same magnitude as this weekend in the light of Article 9 of the now infamous Buzwagi contract. Please take time to read between lines of Article 9: ARTICLE 9 ANCILLARY LAND, FORESTRY AND WATER RIGHTS Note the words shall, ensure,acquire, etc. And also connect those words with section 9.2 below: I thought that history would teach our leaders to not sign open contracts with our ex-colonial masters. I thought that our leaders would be careful to not repeat the past mistakes! 1. What do they mean by the words - if the Company finds it necessary for the purpose of building the project and relevant..? 2. What would stop them from claiming that the whole lake zone area is necessary for the purpose of building....? 3. What would stop from claiming that the whole region is their land and their country.... just because they bought it? 4. What is the difference between this contract and the one made up by Karl Peters and signed up by our chiefs years ago? Tanzania is being Karl-Peterized (karipitalized) and sold for re-colonialization through these contracts. Then, we had uneducated leaders but now we have educated but selfish leaders. Who will stop the Karipitalization of Tanzania?
