It is time for Mr. Rostam Aziz to resign. It is time for him to call quit all his political posts within the ruling party including resigning as the current MP for Igunga. I for one have had enough of it. His name and his level of arrogance has become an absolute enigma in the country. Im quite sure he is a very nice person, probably very loyal to his friends and I will not dispute the fact that he has become one of the very influential people in Tanzanian politics. For me however, his involvement in the whole Dowans saga from the very beginning up to now has led me to believe without any shadow of doubt that here we are dealing with one of the most well planned, organized and corruptly executed deal ever. It pales in comparison to any other corrupt deal before.The machinery and the individuals involved to make this deal possible make me wonder if we are not in fact dealing with a mafia like crime ring or something similarly audacious and sophisticated. I know for a fact that It could not have succeeded as it has without the help, the means, and the powers of Rostam Aziz. Last weeks revelation in The East African coupled with what we have discovered over the past few years as the Dowans/Richmond fiasco unfolded has made me to propose that one way of dealing with the impunity of political corruption within the ruling part which has now permeated the very ranks of our government higher structures is for Mr. Rostam to resign or be dismissed from the party. I know, he is not the sole source of corruption scandals in the country; nor is he the only person who need to be held accountable for a corrupt system we have created and sustained for almost 30 years now. Yes I know his resignation will not be a panacea of our corruption, incompetence and weak leadership that we have. I know all that. But given the way he has handled the Dowans issue as a member of Tanzanian Parliament, an individual who was sworn to uphold, defend and protect our Constitution is indeed troubling and in fact I will argue offensive. Im so tempted to outline how Rostam participated from the formation of an offshore company in Costa Rica up to the recent ICC case; or try to pen down the names of the other people in this syndicate that brought us Dowans some of which are very prominent officials. All that will just confirm that which few people know to be the case that behind Dowans, there is Rostam and indeed behind Rostam there is a group of very corrupt public officials and businessmen (some foreign). But I wont go there for now, what Im saying is that he should be the first to go while others follow behind. His time is up. I wish I didn't have to say this but I have to; Do us a favor Mr. Rostam, resign honorably (if honor has any meaning at all). Please take responsibility for the role you played in this whole mess and have the moral courage to offer this nation your apology for this encampment in the valley of a corrupt deal. But, before you leave would you please tell the nation that has given you so much whose interests do you stand for. If you wouldnt go, I hope CCMs Youth Wing will have the courage to call for his resignation or removal from the party and eventually under articles of CCMs own Constitution NEC will take action against him for the scandal Rostam has brought to the party.
