    THE Union Presidential aspirant on CCM ticket, Mr Jakaya Kikwete, has slammed opposition presidential candidates for spreading unrealistic propaganda on providing ‘free education' at all levels, saying a poor nation like Tanzania could not afford to provide every thing free of charge to its people.

    Mr Kikwete was reacting to recent remarks by several candidates vying for the president's post through opposition parties, who promised that they would provide free education and waive taxes if they succeeded in their presidential bids.

    Addressing a mammoth rally at Mtyangimbole village, Peramiho constituency, Songea Rural, Ruvuma region, Mr Kikwete was baffled by the opposition presidential candidate's promises, saying they were nothing but empty promises, asking the people to weigh the promises carefully before making decisions.

    He said it was true that the government under CCM provided free education to its people few years after independence, but said it was later found that the government could not shoulder the burden by itself and that was why they decided to introduce the cost sharing system.

    He said all these were agreed upon and implementated even when Mwalimu Julius Nyerere was still the party's chairman.

    "It was during Mwalimu era that the system of providing free education to people was reviewed and changed all together. We found it difficult to provide such services and there were realistic and strong reasons why we took such a decision. A poor country like Tanzania cannot afford to give everything free to its people," said the incumbent President.

    He also challenged the opposition leaders to stop what he described as spreading ‘blatant' lies and promises to people that they know quite well they can not fulfill.

    He did not see it to be realistic a promise made by one candidate that he would construct an Inter-City electronic railway that would see people traveling from Dar es Salaam to Kigoma in just three hours, instead of current state that takes at least three days to reach Kigoma from Dar es Salaam.

    "Such lies are quite unfair to people of this country," Kikwete said, adding that Mwalimu Nyerere once said "If you see an old person lying to the public, then that person has got problems and is taking other people for granted."

    Recently the Chama Cha Demokrasisa na Maendeleo (CHADEMA) presidential candidate Dr Willibrod Slaa said the money gained from the Richmond scam and other corrupt deals could have been used in providing free education.

    President Kikwete showered praise on the former immediate Peramiho Member of Parliament Jenister Mhagama for sticking to CCM manifesto that has seen the constituency making big progress in various sectors of development.

    He said CCM has fulfilled its pledges on improving education in the constituency, proved by the fact that more students have been enrolled in secondary schools within the past five years. He said during the period the number of students admitted to secondary schools rose to 8,660 from just 1,860.

    Ms Mhagama had told the president that her constituency has achieved promising progress in the education sector where the number of secondary schools had increased from just five in 2005 to 25 at present, while the pass rate had gone up from 48 to 100 per cent.

    She had told the president that food production has doubled in her constituency in the past three years, and thanked the government through the Food Reserve Agency (NFRA) for having in place proper arrangement to buy more than 200,000 tonnes of food following bumper harvest in many parts of the country.

    Mr Kikwete told the ecstatic crowd that the government would continue to ensure the provision of clean water to the people of Peramiho was boosted. He said to start with 13 villages will soon have access to clean water, and then 20 more villages will be added in the programme.

    He further said that the Peramiho district Hospital has now been promoted to referral Hospital, saying the government will set aside funds to ensure the promoted hospital gets all required support to improve services. He challenged authorities at Peramiho to construct another district hospital.

    He also promised to improve roads in Ruvuma. He said some 10bn/- has been set aside to tarmac level the road stretching from Songea to Namtumbo, which has already secured a contractor as well as the road which connect Tunduru to Mangaka. He said the Songea - Mbinga and Mbinga - Mbamba Bay road network will also be improved to tarmac level soon.

    In another development President Kikwete said the government will set aside more funds to improve education sector in the country. He said effective next year all ward secondary schools will get five teachers, saying such a step will, to some extent, curb the problem of shortage of teachers in many secondary schools countrywide.

    He said in the past five years the CCM government has seen the number university graduating teachers going up from a mere 600 to 12,124 annually, saying more teachers will graduate from the state-of-the –art Dodoma University within the coming few years.

    On teacher's houses, Kikwete said some 250 bn/- has been set aside to construct more houses for teachers countrywide in the next five years. He said each year the government will disburse 50bn/- for the project.

    The president proceeded to Mbinga district and Mbamba Bay for further campaign rallies on Monday.

    My Take:

    Kikwete sasa ameishiwa!!!!!!!!

    I've got one thing to GDP ya Rwanda with its population and GDP ya Tanzania with its population....then ask yourself why a small country like Rwanda with a population of 10 million people vs Tanzania with a population of 40million but GDP ya Tanzania is more than 5 times ile ya Rwanda. In addition, Tanzania in Natural resources that Rwanda can only dream of....sasa tujiulize kwa nini Rwanda inatoa elimu ya bure from mpaka chuo kikuu and not only that it also provides free medical insurance to all its population.

    Nasema it's free kwa sababu kila familia inachangia equivalent ya Tsh 2,000 kwa mwaka!!!! and they get free medical care...i want someone to tell me why this cannot be done here considering all the facts that i have listed above....TANZANIA INAWEZEKANA....the problem is that there is no political will for the obvious reasons.....

    Naona ameacha kueleza jinsi mabilioni ya pesa yalivyokupuliwa na mtandao wake, matumizi mabaya na ufujaji wa pesa za serikali kwa mambo yasiyo muhimu, misamaha ya kodi ambayo inawanufaisha wawekezaji wa nje zaidi kuliko wananchi na wizi mwingine uliokithiri Tanzania.

    Ameshindwa kueleza kwa nini nchi nyingine kama Kenya wameweza kutoa elimu bure, kuadilisha katiba na kadhalika.

    Kuna haja ya kuwaeleza wapiga kura kuhusu mambo haya ili waone upande mwingine ambao ni hali halisi.

    Unajua JK ana advantage moja ya kuwa Rais. Sisi wengine tunashindwa kusema wazi wazi maana tutakuwa tunajitukana kwa kuchagua Rais kama huyu in the first place. Something went terribly wrong in 2005 and we are now paying the price.

    Umuhimu wa mdahalo ndiyo unaonekana sasa! Ila kwa kifupi JK is a big joke yaani najiuliza huwa akikaa na watu kama Obama, Gordon Brown enzi zile, Mama Clinton sijui watakuwa wanamchukuliaje. Au simply kwamba aah! hao ndivyo walivyo!

    Wakati Kibaka alipokuwa anaahidi Elimu bure, Moi alicheka sana na kusema haiwezekani. Sasa naona mchezo umegeuka kwa JK. Kama mabepari Kenya wameweza sisi tunanini tushindwe?

    Nafikiri CHADEMA wanapaswa kununua Airtime kwenye vituo vyote vya TV ofcourse kwa support yetu sote,kuwaamsha watanzania kuhusu hili la Elimu Bure kwa kila mtanzania na kuwakumbusha pia kwamba just across the border kwa wenzetu wa Kenya hili limewezekana.kama tunaweza kuifanya Kigoma kuwa Dubai (according to Mkulu) kwanini tusiweze hili la Elimu Bure! Nafikiri issue ni priorities na kuimarisha mfumo wa matumizi ya serikali kwa kuondoa matumizi yasiyo ya lazima na yale ya Anasa ambayo CCM hawawezi kuyaacha maana hawana uchungu na wapiga kura wao!

    Jamani kwenye uchaguzi wa mwaka huu tusifanye makosa kwa kuchagua kwa ushabiki wa vyama bali tuchague watu wazalendo wa kweli na wenye uchungu na nchi hii! na wenye uchungu na nchi hii wanaonekana kwa matendo na kauli zao.
