From LEONARD MWAKALEBELA in Dodoma, 24th November 2011 @ 12:00 DAILY NEWS THE National Executive Committee of the Ruling Party, Chama Cha Mapinduzi (NEC-CCM), on Thursday ended its two-day meeting without expelling or stripping some prominent cadres of their posts as speculated earlier. However, the Dar es Salaam Regional Party Secretary, Kilumbe Ng'enda, was relieved of his duties. The party's Ideology and Publicity Secretary, Mr Nape Nnauye, promised reporters here on Thursday that he would address a press conference on Friday. Sources from the meeting however told the 'Daily News' that the meeting resolved to forward the 'cleansing and skin shedding' business to the Ethics and Security Committee, and the Central Committee (CC-CCM). "The meeting decided that any CCM member who has evidence of wrong-doing by the cadres should submit it to the two committees for appropriate action," revealed the source. Another high-profile NEC member said the meeting resolved to 'cleanse' the party without breaking it up. "NEC members debated the philosophy, it was decided it should be conducted with sobriety and with evidences," revealed another NEC member. Addressing press conference earlier yesterday, Mr Nnauye announced that Kilumbe acted contrary to legal provisions of the party. He said, Ng'enda committed the offence during election of councillors of Special Seats. Ng'enda is said to have submitted a list of the councillors, some of whom were not endorsed by the party's legal sittings. Mr Nnauye said that Ng'enda would be assigned another duty. Removal of Ng'enda followed complaints of some of Councillors who won during the party's primaries before 2010 general elections but were omitted from the list and replaced by losers. Mr Nnauye also announced the party's time table for Uzini constituency by-election following the death of Mussa Hamis Silima (CCM). The late Silima, who was member of Zanzibar House of Representatives and Member of Parliament of United Republic of Tanzania died last August in Muhimbili National Hospital after a road accident. The timetable shows that interested members will take and return nomination forms for the constituency between November 28 and December 2 this year. The CC-CCM is expected to sit between January 7 and 8, 2012 to pick the party's candidate. Meanwhile, the party's National Chairman, President Jakaya Kikwete, is on Friday expected to open a seminar of the party's operatives and executives of all levels in Dodoma.
