    - Wasalaam waleykum ndugu zangu, wakati Tanzania tukiendelea kupitia kipindi kigumu sana cha kukosekana kwa vision na maadili ya uongozi kwa viongozi wetu wengi wa juu, nationally ni vyema tukumbuke tulikotoka na hasa tukiangalia works za Baba wa Taifa letu, Mwalimu Nyerere.

    - Labda tunaweza kuelewa au kugundua where did we go wrong as a nation, ninawakaribisha mabingwa wa history, wachambuzi wa peeches, na all Mwalimu's works as a leader na pia as a private citizen, baada ya kung'atuka.

    It is unusual for a political leader after twenty-three years to step down. It is even more unusual for a soldier. Soldiers in Africa are the equivalent of the kings and emperors who built the states of Europe. Europeans are now reminding us of democracy which is very good, of course. But their states were built by kings and emperors, queens and empresses and the army. Their states were never built by political parties.

    In Africa, the equivalent of the king is the general who takes over. And once the general takes over, what do you do? In Europe, once one family takes over, it remains until another member from the royal family can upstage the reigning family, a palace coup of some sort. And in Africa, you could have expected that once a general has taken over, he is going to stay there until another general of the family takes over.

    It is unusual for a military man to say "I'm stepping down, I am handing over to democratic process. That is an example which many of our soldiers should learn. But what is either equally important or even more important, is what the general is doing after stepping down.

    I visited Gen. Obasanjo at his farm. While I was there, a bank manager came to complain about the delay in the repayment of his loan and to find out when he is going to pay the loan he had taken to build his house and farm. I've heard somebody say here that, once upon a time, we had a head of state in Africa who was said to be the fourth richest head of state in the world. And at that time, I think the richest was the Shah of Iran, and I think followed by two monarchs in Europe, and then this particular African head of state.

    And there was General Obasanjo … I don't know whether he has repaid that loan, I think he is still struggling to repay that loan. But there is the General, organizing an African Leadership Forum, something for which I'm quite sure Africa will thank you. It is much more permanent than even your stepping down.

    Mfichaficha maradhi, kilio kitamfichua.

    Ila kwa Kijanaki (Kizanaki) inatamkwa vipi sijui? Sitaki kuandika matusi.

    Naona hakuwa mkali saana wa Rushwa maana MARADHI YAMEMFICHUA.

    Siku hizi MAFISADI ndiyo wanawapa MSUKOSUKO serikali, bunge, Mahakama, Polisi TAKURURU....


    I wish hii ingelikuwepo, RA na EL wachapwe viboko 12 wakawaonyeshe wake zao.

    Nyerere was the greatest we ever had. Just listen to different press conferences he held and speeches he gave. This man was intelligent, patriotic and a visionary.May God rest his soul in peace.

    Life is understood through the past, and lived for the future. Here is a man who left us with no economical legacy despite his 23 years in power.

    Here is a man who stepped down on his own willing after 23 yrs of trying on a single approach that failed.

    Here is a man, realistically can only be described as a one trick pony. A man without plan B, a man who accepted defeat and bowed out gracefully, a man who made sure no one is being elected next after him based on his ideas, a man who realistically understood he was a failure.

    Yet his society try to adorn his reign with highest medals known to a man, if anything it tells me tanzania as a society is still stuck in the past, if today leaders still rely on a failed man for future guidence im sorry to say tanzania will always be exploited.

    As we dwell with the past, others plan to exploit us whilst we are still in this deep sleep and if we think a man who failed after 23yrs of trying is a perfect example, the only justification i can give is we're still a primitive society.

    Get scientific get realistic we should call things as they are and not what we think they ought to be.

    Nyerere was a failure and did nothing special that no other could not have done given the chances and the opportunies he had.

    sidhani kama unamaanisha ulichoandika ... rushwa ilikuwa ni ya kiwango cha chini sana ... na mostly ilifanyika kwa wafanyabiashara na watu waliokuwa na positions za juu serikalini .. but bottom line ni kwamba everybody aliiogopa sio kama siku hizi .... imefikia hatua ukigoma kutoa rushwa unaonekana mshamba ... Tanzania ya leo!!!!????

    I do agree Nyerere was not an angel but he was exceptional, I agree he failed somehow when he chose socialism over capitalism but there is one thing that will distinguish him from other pathetic african leaders of modern Tanzania and Africa in general, that is he walked his talk! He hated corruption and he meant it, he led by example the rest we live for historians to ponder!
