In Tanzania, there’s a high level of incest between political and business elites. That’s to say that business and political elites are one and the same thing. Egypt is a classical case where the military, which rules the state, owns the largest share of the economy – either directly, or through oligarchs. In Tanzania, the picture isn’t more nuanced. In fact, you really can’t make real money unless you are connected to the state. That’s why our politicians, or their relatives, are the wealthiest Tanzanians. It’s a symbiotic existence.

Secondly, the professions have been captured by the kleptocracy. Let’s take law, for example, its called “noble profession.” In William Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Dick the Butcher said that “the first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” This, he suggested, would’ve made the country better. I obviously wouldn’t go that far, but some lawyers in Tanzania have been the bane of our existence. Many have aided and abetted bad governance. I can think of an attorney general or two who are guilty as charged. Or a number of attorneys who are lawyers for the mob – the mafia – Tanzania’s version of la cosa nostra. These lawyers infest our courts to corrupt a willing judiciary. It’s the mob.

Other professions aren’t immune. Take the financial sector. Here, crooks abound aplenty. How else do you explain the web of fraudulent real estate deals, fake titles, and grabbing of public lands for construction?

The civil service – I wonder whether the term “civil” should be severed from the “service” – is awash with corrupt maggots. That’s why Mama Samia Suluhu’s has her work cut out for her in his current good governance crusade. Most culprits see it more like a putsch. But if Mama Samia succeeds in killing the lords of corruption and impunity – and establishing a system of meritocracy – he may move Tanzania from the banana republic column.Can she destroy the oligarchs and plutocrats? I say possibly – but she can’t blink.

Third, there’s the not too small matter of local oligarchs and elites being servile to international corrupt interests. In the past, American and European multinationals, states, banks, and other commercial interests openly bribed our elites. Often, public officials would sign contracts they didn’t “understand” or hadn’t read. Who bothers to read a contract giving away national treasures when their pockets have been lined with kickbacks? More recently, Chinese interests – public and private – have replaced Europeans and Americans in the orgy of bribery.

Finally, let’s admit that Tanzanias – elites and wananchi, oligarchs and machingas – are our own worst enemies. We behave as though looting is in our blood. We admire the looters. We beg from the looters. We implore the looters to loot even more. Otherwise, how can we explain the use of the Party card every time a looter is fingered for looting? Let’s cut the umbilical cords that connect us to the banana republic.

You seem to make more sense almost than sense itself. This is actually what politicians don't want the common ^mwananchi^ to know. Most of these individuals vie for public offices for the sake of their own personal enrichment, and not to SERVE the public who voted them into such lofty positions. Why and what's the antidote!??? Professor PLO captured it so well when he says: ^We elect hyenas to take care of goats, all the while expecting nothing going amiss. Pathetic!^ Accountability is the key --- and this begins with the voters --- we, the people!!!

Estemeed JF member you figuratively narrated the way to mould the situation, but perspectively the path is too narrow to make it with a multiple of reasons.
The elite politicians and business tycoons have grabbed the opportunity to harness the country direction regardless whether it was heading to abyss; they decide what normal citizens should do, think and suppot the wealth looting.

Remember criminality is always fuelled by politicians and business tycoons as the guarantee protective umbrella to the criminals provided wealth was centralized to a few to maintain powers that exploits economic growth.

Corporal Handling + Diplomacy Approach = Harmonized Accountability Profiters Partners Interests

That too narrow a path should be widen to separating corruption and business. We must strive to see one does not aid symbioticaly the other.

Which legislative instrument would you legally capitalize to prevent the politicians and business tycoons from coercing the state administration for the peoples' leadership that leads to the aspired achievement?

When you see business is prospering or failing there must be a politician compromising moral ethics to consolidate his/her personal populism or imperialism

Your last paragraph do not capture the true meaning of businesses prosperity I intended. If Anti-corruption Organisation is given personel who are dedicated to their jobs and are people of intergrity, she will succeed to separate.

Yes, it doesn't abreast with your concept because you generalized, nevertheless drilling deeper the observation outlined in the specified sentence entails crystal clear truth.

I did not conceptualise in my presentation, but I shall with time put proposals on how she can specifically proceed from here.

Generally you need a thief to catch thieves. On this she should draw the experiences of financial institution on IT and hackers.

Kwa kutumia lugha ya Kiswahili, wachangiaji wazuri wapo, lakini na wenye michango isio husu kinachojadiliwa wako wengi mnoo.

Kwa Kiingereza unapata wachangiaji wachache lakini wazuri mnoo, mnapanua ufahamu na kubadilishana uelewa.

No go back to English, as those you branded them as empty headed will use this this post to interfere your superb views. Just remain with your fellow intellectuals for minority discussion. Hizi huziita ni dharau ndogondogo.

We have to get the new constitution that will strip away the veiled prosecutorial discretion accorded to the politicians. The politicians from the rulling party use their power to extort money for campaigns, petty projects for PR and to ensure loyalty from the business community.
Thanks so much, but we wish to get your opinion on how we should move ahead to restore sanity. Blame game is not what we are discussing here.

New Constitution shall be a mother of all laws, but later to be interpreted into statutes. You must also be alive to the facts that law as it is we must have Judges to interpret it.

But the rule of law doesn’t mean that judges leave their political biases, religious bigotries and political ideologies at the door. No – that’s not humanly possible when judges interpret the law. Judges are inherently political beings. That’s why courts are political institutions. Courts are an arm of the state, which is a political institution.

That’s why good lawyers often predict how certain judges will rule based on their ideology and political philosophy.

The anticipated NEW or REFORMED constitution won't steamline the highlighted vices unless you overhaul the entire Tanzanian population to have a generation free of coercion from political influences whose survival depends on robbing manouvrebility to achieve the goals whether being just or treacherous
