    THE Civic United Front (CUF) national Chairman, Prof Ibrahim Lipumba, has congratulated President Jakaya Kikwete for being nominated the CCM Presidential candidate flag bearer and proposed three debates for Presidential candidates to explain their policies.

    "I am writing to you personally and on behalf of CUF National Council to congratulate you for being elected for the second time by the CCM National Congress to be their Union Presidential candidate," Prof Lipumba noted in a letter to Mr Kikwete.

    Besides congratulation message, Prof Lipumba proposed: "Let us have three debates to discuss three major issues that focus on economic growth and poverty eradication, good governance and foreign relations, defence and security."

    The debates, according to CUF chairman, will provide an opportunity for the voters to understand presidential candidates, establish good relations between the parties and candidates as well as promote democracy in the country.

    Prof Lipumba backed his proposal to Mr Kikwete with his nomination by his party to vie for Presidential post in the October general elections.

    "Since I have been nominated the CUF Presidential candidate, I feel we have the obligation to make our campaigns a platform for Tanzanians to be enlightened on issues of equality in sharing natural resources and the country's endowments, employment creation as well as ways to eradicate poverty", he added.

    According to him, the debates should focus on good governance and building the nation's morality, foreign relations, defence and security of the country. To facilitate this dialogue, he urged the media, religious institutions, academics, research institutions and NGOs to organize and coordinate the debates.

    Meanwhile, members of CCM Diaspora have pledged to support the party to win the October general elections. The Diaspora comprising over 2000 party members from United Kingdom, Uganda, India, Napolis, and the US commended CCM and its national Chairman Mr Kikwete for realizing the importance of uniting Tanzanians abroad.

    Speaking on behalf of CCM Diaspora at a press conference held at CCM sub-offices in Lumumba, Dar es Salaam, its CCM Secretary General Suzan Mzee observed that the party had made commendable progress in exercising democracy in the electoral process.

    "We were privileged to be invited to attend the party's National Congress in Dodoma. We have generally observed that the party had done a commendable job in implementing its manifesto," she noted.

    Ms Mzee who was accompanied by representatives from UK, Italy, Uganda, and Bungalow and India said they were particularly impressed by the achievements made in agriculture, education and health sectors.
    "It is very rare for parties in power to invite the opposition parties and avail them an opportunity to air their views in the Congress meeting as CCM did," she said referring to the just ended CCM meeting in Dodoma.

    The move, and several others, she said were the testimony that CCM was a democratic party.
    To support the general elections campaigns in October, CCM Diaspora-UK branch has donated 100,000 openers with melodies.

    At least 2,000 of the first order of the openers were distributed to the CCM National Congress delegates in Dodoma. The CCM Diaspora's Chairman, Maina Owino, pledged more support to the party and the nation, including building one hospital in either Zanzibar or Dar es Salaam.

    They have also donated two containers full of computers to the government for schools as well as coordinating for teachers from overseas to train Tanzanian students on Information technology.

    The CCM Diaspora has challenged the media to educate youths to take up the opportunities in open-market economy and do way with old mindset that everything should be done by the government.

    Hiii midahalo baina ya wagombea uraisi ingeingizwa kwenye sheria ya uchaguzi ili kusitokee ukwepaji. Kwa wagombea uraisi mdahalo ni kitu muhimu sana. JK akikimbia atatia aibu.

    Hivyo ndivyo itakavyokuwa mkuu, lakini wagombea wa vyama vingine wanaweza kabisa kushiriki katika hiyo midahalo mitatu hata kama kiti cha Kikwete kitakuwa wazi. Itakuwa vizuri zaidi kama ITV watarusha live midahalo yote hiyo mitatu maana wale TBC hawataruhusiwa kuonyesha chochote.
