Yes I have said that, we are invented people. The reason for that is there no place in history that shows that we wanted to live together, share responsibilities, take care of each, and defend our best interests. Correct me if I am wrong. If we had been one people, we would have thought twice before some of us signed mineral or other investment agreements that benefit foreigners and destroyed local environments. Only people with little in common will do that. I might be wrong again. However, if we have common interests, we will put all foreign aid into good use to help the poor. This is because they are the reasons we receive aid in the first place. Do you think there is a donor country that wants to pay a salary of a fat Tanzanian MP with Master or Doctorate degree? I dont think so. Therefore, before our MPs demanded pay rise, they should have thought about it. But they didnt. They didnt because we dont take care of each other as a nation. If we take care of each other, people will get paid according to their quality of work, expertise, and their input to the nation. If you are a tax collector with a high school diploma, why do you demand higher salaries than those of a college professor or medical doctor in order to do your job? Uncharacteristically the nation has decided to pay you more than what you deserve, but you continue to steal anyway. You do that because you dont know that shared responsibilities make a nation a nation. Tanzania shouldnt be a place where every public employee dreams to have a big house powered by industrial generator, and equipped with sim-tank and septic tank. In addition, it isnt a place to send every child to a private school that cost more than university education. These costs are unnecessary. They are unnecessary because not only they destroy the foundation of the nation, but also ruin the process of attaining the quality of life we desire. Remember its our shared responsibilities that pay school teachers, build road and hospitals, and pay salaries for public employees. However, if we continue to work individually, who will pay for public and social services? Do you think leaders who dont send their children to public schools will demands excellence in public schools? They wont. They wont because they have nothing to lose, and they think that the lost to the nation isnt theirs.
