    Tanzanian Bunge (Parliament) in Dodoma

    Contributing their views before the Constitutional Review Team currently in Kigoma Region, many of the suggestions for the new constitution include allocating salaries and allowances to MPs according to levels of their education. “I suggest that MPs receive salaries and allowances equal to the salaries paid to civil servants.
    Why are they paid so exorbitantly?” asked one Ms Emma Humbi. In a well attended debate held here on Thursday, residents were of the view that the President shouldn’t be given powers to appoint Judges and members of Electoral Commission to allow impartiality. The residents said that the current system was likely to cause more troubles as two bodies might fail to institute equal
    rights particularly in areas where the President may have interests.
    Another resident, Mr Haji Rozo said the President should not be given excessive powers to dissolve parliament in case of any misunderstanding as MPs will not be free to exercise their duties. “If anything happens that the August House has to dissolve whatever the circumstances then an ideal system should be sought to deal with that scenario without involving the President,” he said.
    On freedom of worship, some said Friday should also be included as a day of rest to give Muslims the chance to worsh ip freely. However, the demand forced the Vice Chairman of the Commission Justice Augustine Ramadhani to stand up and explain on how Saturdays and Sundays were chosen as rest days but said they were free to make the suggestion.
    He said the two days were made deliberately for workers to rest and prepare for the next week adding the two rest days were not arranged based on religious reasons. “But the issue is debatable and will be accommodated accordingly,” he said. Earlier, Justice Ramadhani said the turn out for Constitutional debate in Kasulu has been the best in the country since the Commission started gathering views so far.
    According to the Chairman of the Kigoma team Ms Mwantumu Malale, over 1500 views at the meeting were received in writings while others contributed verbally. She said people should participate in the next stage of forming Ward Constitutional Councils that will be tasked to go through the views collected.
