When I look at President Kikwete, try to absorb and understand his leadership and management style, I end up with Hamid Karzai, the interim President of Afhganistan. Both are very good friends of President Bush. Both are leading countries that are at the bottom of Transparency International Corruption Index, both Karzai and Kikwete depend on grants and aids to lead and rescue their country. Just like Karzai with Uranium, Oil and even Opium, Kikwete has Oil, Gas, Gold, Uranium, Diamonds, Tanzanite and so is tourism. However both Karzai and Kikwete have continued to show the world and people of their countries that, they have prestige, they are pompous and handsome! What both Karzai and Kikwete have failed to realize is that they are leading their countries harboring corruptio. Both Governments of Karazi and Kikwete have not been able to establish authority and sound credibility inside their countries! It is only when Karzai and Kikwete can show some authority, can demonstrate ability to make tough descicion and stop begging for money and resources form someone else, then Tanzania just like Afghanistan will see a true development. However if Kikwete who now apppears has no will or desire or as stated by my fellow harakati collegue, that Kikwete has given up, continues without respectfully step down, his Presidency will be remembered as the worse period in our nation's history!
