    Former Tanzanian PM Judge Warioba

    Former Prime Minister Joseph Warioba has stressed the importance of public views in forming the new Constitution and has called upon members of the public to give their views without fear or influence from politicians or activists.

    Speaking during a workshop on ethics held in
    Dar es Salaam at the weekend, the former PM said the process of drafting the new Constitution depended on people's views and should not be interfered by NGOs, political parties or activists.

    "We should not mislead members of the public under the pretext of public awareness, while we have our own interests because if the new Constitution is influenced by politics or NGOs will not be useful to people," Warioba said.

    "The government should consider people's complaints about important sectors like water, health, land, education and many more, while drafting the new Constitution," he added.

    He, however, said people and political independence were important in forming the new Constitution.

    He called upon people to freely air their views how they wanted their Constitution to be.

    "If the process allows freedom of expression we will get a good Constitution," Warioba stressed.

    For his part, former Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Ibrahim Kaduma said there was a need for including moral issues in the new Constitution because teaching morals from family to primary schools and also at colleges would help create good future generations.

    Kaduma said the
    Zanzibar Declaration was responsible for the current problems in Tanzania because it had elements of selfishness since when it was declared it seemed to be good for the country, while it was not.

    Mzee wa kunukuu tumekupata. Lakini kuna nini kipya hapa? Watanzania wamekuwa huru kujadili hoja hii toka ilipozaliwa mpaka kule bungeni. Sasa kinachohimizwa hapa ambacho hakikufanyika ni nini? Watu waache kutafuta political relevance pasipostahili!
