Aliandika maoni yake akayaita utafiti akarusha mitandaoni na watanzania wakamjibu vizuri sana nahisi sasa atajua watanzania wa sasa si wale aliowaacha alipoenda ughaibuni.

Kichwa cha habari na mambo aliyoyapa kipaumbele zaidi ya 85% kwenye andiko lake hayahusiani na kichwa cha habari yake, Habari ilipaswa iwe kuhusu COVID-19 kwa mujibu kichwa cha habari, mwishowe aliegemea sana kwenye maoni ya kisiasa hasa kuhusu aina ya uongozi wa Mh. Magufuli na demokrasia. Nafikiri mzee wa kutoa boko Lissu alipaswa kupitia maoni ya watanzania kabla ya kuongea vile kwenye mahojiano yake na TV ya nchi jirani kuhusu COVID-19.


Tafadhari soma chapisho lake kisha angalia maoni ya watu baada ya andiko kwenye sehemu ya maoni, nenda kwenye link hii Tanzania's COVID-19 response puts Magufuli's leadership style in sharp relief

Kumpondea Magufuli kuhusu alivyo shughulika na COVID-19 ni sawa na kujipiga bunduki mguuni.
Natamani Mtafiti bandia Aikande Clement Kwayu atupe tena andiko la kuhusu hali ya COVID-19 Tanzania baada ya zaidi ya miezi miwili kupita tangu aandike maoni yake aliyo yaita utafiti ambayo yaliegemea upande mmoja wa sarafu.

Tanzania’s COVID-19 response puts Magufuli’s leadership style in sharp relief

One of the main points of discussion around the various responses to the COVID-19 pandemic is governance. Different countries have reacted to the pandemic in different ways. These differences are informed by varying styles of leadership and governance around the globe.

Countries with open and transparent governing styles have taken a more hands-on approach by engaging diverse stakeholders. Scholars who examined the COVID-19 responses in China, Japan and South Korea, for example, found that there was systematic evidence that different governance decisions led to different results.

In the case of Tanzania, I argue that COVID-19 has revealed, rather than informed, the governance style under the current administration.

Writing about India’s handling of the new coronavirus, Amartya Sen – professor of economics and 1998 economics Nobel laureate – said:

tackling a social calamity is not like fighting a war, which works best when a leader can use top-down power to order everyone to do what the leader wants — with no need for consultation.

In line with this thinking, being transparent and engaging diverse groups, including both loyalists and critics, is crucial for governments in the fight against the virus.

In Tanzania, President John Magufuli has taken the opposite view. He has framed COVID-19 as a war and not a health calamity requiring scientific consultation. As a result the handling of the pandemic has been at the whim of the president.

Since Magufuli expressed his doubts on the professionalism of the national laboratory, no more updates on COVID-19 have been made. It’s no longer easy to tell if data being released by the government is grounded in science, or whether it is simply that the president wants lower figures reported.

Magufuli’s COVID-19 response is typical. He is a president who has always taken an idiosyncratic view of leadership. Since his election in 2015, he has acted unilaterally. This has divided the country, while consolidating power in the presidency. Even his own ruling party has become a casualty of his autocratic style of leadership.

Idiosyncratic response to COVID-19
Magufuli has downplayed the pandemic’s threat and encouraged the use of local and home remedies such as drinking ginger and lemon tea, and steam therapy as a way to prevent infection.

He publicly questioned the efficacy of the COVID-19 tests used in Tanzania’s laboratories. He then promised to send a plane to collect Madagascar’s traditional remedy for the virus.

This statement marked the end of the health minister’s daily updates on the country’s COVID-19 response. It was followed by a presidential proclamation that that God was answering the prayers of Tanzanians against the pandemic.

The president then appointed a new deputy health minister, probably because the previous one had questioned the use of steaming therapy to manage the virus.

Two weeks earlier, the president had appointed a new Constitutional and Legal Affairs minister, following the sudden death of his predecessor. The new minister was given the unusual task of investigating the activities of the national laboratory and its handling of COVID-19 testing.

Both men had previously supported Magufuli’s response to the pandemic.

These appointments give the real impression that loyalty to the president is very important in Tanzania. Dissenters are not tolerated. It’s no surprise that the official leader of opposition in parliament was rebuffed when he extended an offer to work with the government to fight the virus.

Civil society organisations have also been sidelined. But faith-based organisations have been won over by the government’s decision to keep places of worship open. Religion has been framed as a more appropriate response to COVID-19 than science.

History of intransigence and excesses
In 2017, Magufuli banned pregnant school girls from continuing school despite calls to the contrary. As a result the World Bank delayed the release of a $500 million education loan.

Eventually, Magufuli bowed to the pressure and lifted the ban.

Another example of Magufuli’s intransigence was his reaction to a planned countrywide protest organised by the opposition Chadema party. The police threatened to use force to stop citizens from participating. Eventually, the opposition called off the demonstration after faith leaders and civil society called for dialogue.

To date, there has not been any dialogue between the government and Chadema.

The absence of dialogue, and discrimination against Chadema and other opposition parties, has led to further polarisation between the Magufuli administration and dissenters.

The state response to COVID-19 is well within Magufuli’s playbook. He acts unilaterally, while polarising the nation and consolidating power in the presidency. This is often to the detriment of the Chama cha Mapinduzi ruling party. Power is centralised in the executive.

Party organs and members do not have the agency to hold the president to account.

Critics within the ruling party have been punished and expelled.

The executive’s autocracy has forced the opposition party to strengthen its institutions from the ground up. It now appears that Chadema is becoming a stronger party institutionally. In response, the ruling party has resorted to using force to maintain its grip on power.

To understand how Magufuli centralised power, one structural move he took in the beginning of his administration is illustrative. He removed the Regional Administration and Local Governments office from the office of the prime minister and put it in the office of the president.

The office is responsible for administering education, health, and development projects within local districts across the country.

Thus, local government matters are reported directly to the president’s office and are managed from the very core of the executive branch. This structural change has diverted revenue collection to the central government. The president has also used local government political appointees to silence dissenters.

It is apparent, therefore, that he will decide whether cases of COVID-19 in Tanzania have declined or increased, no matter what the science says.

The real fate of the country, however, is in the hands of Tanzanians. Only they can take their power back.

Baadhi ya maoni(comments) ya watanzania ..
-------------------------------UPDATE (Added comment )-------------------------------
The problem with the author is he has singled out a few things (approaches) and fronted them as the only main things or approaches to reduce the spread of covid-19 used in TZ. The truth is those are some of the approaches and TZ (or if the author wants it Magufuli) has not excluded all other approaches used by other countries. If the author is sincere why leave out the use of masks, wash of hands, use of sanitizers, social distancing etc., which are part of the covid-19 approaches. We all hear TZ campaigns covering all these areas.

We everyday witness how TZ professionals, politicians, teachers, health officers and the like are emphasizing the adherence to WHO organizations recommendations in dealing with corona-virus and we have never heard Tanzania government dismissing those measures in favor of prayer or use of ginger as Kwayu tries to insinuate. By the way what is wrong with adding ginger herbs and prayer to try solve a problem that has no cure. In research any problem that has not been studied and is completely new, we first start with exploratory approach. Trying to find what might or could help since even the approaches we are using have not been scientifically proven to work. Is there a study that showed six feet is a safe social distance for non spreading of the virus.

To me, Kwayu sounds more of a political alarmist than a scientist. All scientist are currently conducting exploratory studies towards solving the covid-19 problem. These studies include social science, psychology, social work that focus on behavior and covid-19... how behavior may help and currently we are actually depending on our own behavior to mitigate the problem. But we are also heavily investing chemistry/pharmaceutical/medical science studies that focus on prevention and cure. Again these studies are exploratory too.

So, my friend Kwayu, if you are a real researcher do research a favor. Be open or have an open mind, do not try to give half truth because you want to use that half truth to prove your point. In research language you are unethical because you hide information to prove or score points. Real students of research do not make conclusions without being exhaustive. Real research students do not hide information otherwise their research and research results will be biased. Be ethical, real, and fair to the research discipline. Otherwise you will be unethical. Being ethical is everything to all disciplines and professions, including research.
--------------------------------- END OF UPDATE ------------------------------------------------

The writer is biased and has no proper knowledge of Tanzania today. I wonder what research is doing over there. Don’t mislead well wishers of this beautiful country.
I have come to realize that the author is indeed a Tanzanian possibly currently located in Dar es Salaam. In her tweeter account, the author seems to post a lot of religious quotations, a theme I would call “faith”- God fearing traits.
I don’t know what that means for her or for everyone else but I have realized that the author might have spoken/wrote her article not as a researcher but one of members of one of the opposition parties here in Tanzania.
It is not a bad thing to belong to a party, after all Tanzanians have freedom of choice, but, if you address yourself as a researcher in politics you can either stand out of the box and assess the politicians you are researching to avoid bias or you can do what I think the author did, just standing within the box and using policies from one party to assess the other. I have not had much knowledge in politics but I think it’s obvious where one’s research would be credible.
Holding a PhD is not an easy task, but how one uses knowledge that led to such achievements. In my opinion, knowledge will be valuable if objectively used not to manipulate others in your favour but to lay out your proved findings and let other fill the gaps. In the article, it seems like despite not laying truthful and proved facts, the author seems conclusive about such unproved and biased baseless opinions.
Again, the relevance of the title and content is a very important thing. You cannot stand to mention one thing in the title and describe the other, actually the incompatible other. Such would be one of the weaknesses of doing research from within the box.
Another fact in my opinion would be the audience to which the article is addressed. While I am not sure about the author’s primary audience which I suspect is not about typical Tanzanians, I would assume, as I have seen the reactions in the tweeter link, that those viewing and probably supporting the content might either be passers by here in Tanzania or Outsiders interested in Tanzania. In both cases, the content might help but not those in need of hearing, grasping and possibly assessing. Knowing that most of Tanzanians speak Kiswahili, I would have preferred to see the Swahili version of article. This I think is one of the creativity proofs in research.
I assume the author is viewing all the comments from people here in the platform. That being the case, I suggest that the author comes in and responds to what people have spoken about. Wether an appreciation, condemnation or defence of what the author meant that was not possibly well grasped, or offering further proof of the contents in the article. Otherwise THIS WILL NOT BE THE “CONVERSATION” PLATFORM AS IT IS LABELLED.
The imperialists are being this article, they’re afraid if pan africanist like Magufuli, Kagame, they killed Gadaffi, cause they think they know what suits Africa better. But you westerners be warned, Africa better s waking up, soon you will hear more Magufulis all over Africa, African true independence is coming, then Africa again shall have confidence in it’s own idealogies, it’s own systems and processes
This bullshit of western imperialism should be done away with, they do this to keep thinking for us, and make the leaders who have the best African interests look evil to us, so that they use us to fight them, kill them and hand ourselves right back into their slavery.
Any African, if you think these imperial list want anything good for us, think twice and revist Lybia then you will know that they are interested in seeing you fail, and always under them
Check out how HIV/Aids was spread to Africa through innoculations, you will understand why it’s high time we told those guys away with you.

Ulisoma kwa kukurupuka hakuna mahali nilijinukuu.
Akili yako ilijiandaa kunikosoa ukakosa utulivu. Sikujinukuu ila nilitengeneza nukuu kwenye post ambayo haikuwa na jina langu.
Sikuondoa jina langu , ningejinukuu ungeona 'Titicomb said' lakini haikuwa hivyo.

Next time kuwa na utulivu usikimbile kukosoa.
