More than 19 million Tanzanians are today out on ballots casting their vote to elect local government leadership; a demonstration of democracy from the grassroots.

The election is expected to be peaceful as is the tradition in Tanzania; East Africa's most peaceful economy.

11 opposition parties are participating in this election hoping to replace the governing party in the many streets, villages and sub-villages, or retaining some of their won seats in 2014, despite some boycotting the election.

Political analysts reveal that elections in Tanzania are generally competative but end up all peaceful unlike other countries in Africa.

"Some opposition parties are not participating but the reasons are known; most were not prepared to participate. Remember these are local governments where you need to have firmly established your roots down the villages whilst most political parties are predominantly urban based," says Prof. Ahmed Muhiddin.

The Minister for Local Government in Tanzania, Suleiman Jaffoh told reporters in Dodoma that the country was ready for today's election.

Local government elections are a great manifestation of democracy from the grassroots and more than 12,000 villages will participate.

"A great showcase of democracy indeed--We wish Tanzanians all the best," says Prof. Muhiddin, a political scientist

Robot at work. But you will be surprised if you read the news today and listen to what happened yesterday. Why did you not show the picture of solders doing push ups to scare people?
