    Makamba says booing won't stop CCM win
    By Samuel Kamndaya

    Chama Cha Mapinduzi secretary general Yusuph Makamba, has said booing of its leaders will not prevent his party from winning the Busanda by-election.

    The media reported on Friday that residents of Nyarugusu in Busanda constituency in Geita District, heckled the party�s Mainland vice-chairman, Mr Pius Msekwa and his predecessor, Mr John Malecela at different occasions during the on-going Busanda by-election campaigns.

    But Mr Makamba told reporters shortly after landing at at the Mwalimu Nyerere International Airport from Mwanza at the weekend, that the party expects to retain Busanda seat despite campaign palavers.

    "We have every reason to win the by-election� we have fielded an educated candidate� the lady knows how to express herself � after all, Busanda was a CCM seat," said Mr Makamba.

    The ruling party has fielded Ms Lolencia Maselle Bukwimba who faces stiff competition from other candidates mainly those from Chadema and the Civic United Front (CUF).

    The Busanda by-election follows the death of the former legislator, Kabuzi Faustine Rwilomba (CCM).

    As was the case with Tarime, Chadema is likely to market its candidate to Busanda residents by branding CCM as a party that has failed in the war on graft.

    But Mr Makamba said CCM is well prepared to crash corruption allegations that the opposition might level against the ruling party.

    "It is unfair to brand CCM as a corrupt party just because a few of its members faces corruption allegations� likewise a bishop or a sheikh cannot be branded as a promoter of adultery because a Christian or Moslem believer faith has committed adultery," said Mr Makamba.

    Reports indicate that fears of losing the by-election to the opposition as was the case in the Tarime by-election last October, has gripped the CCM, following reports that the party is divided over the nomination of its candidate for the by-election last month.

    The only female aspirant for the seat, Ms Lolencia Bukwimba, emerged victorious in the nomination poll involving 11 other aspirants.
