(C) Comment: Although Salim's remarks were no doubt
influenced to some extent by his disappointment at not
capturing the presidential nomination, they ring generally
true. In particular, the approaching train wreck in
Zanzibar is of growing general concern, and Salim's
analysis tracks very closely with ours. We also share his
skepticism over President Karume's ability - or inclination
- to exert strong leadership and avoid a crisis. We have
discussed these concerns with several like-minded
diplomatic missions here and are planning a series of
meetings with both Karume and Kikwete to ensure they fully
understand the consequences of another fraudulent election
in Zanzibar, and to encourage them to take action now to
calm tensions and avert a crisis. End Comment.
