IT is no doubt that the three years of President Magufuli in power has ushered in significant progress for Tanzania but this is not good news for prophets of doom whose interests and those of their proxies have been thrashed through the purge on corruption and review of dubious contracts in their favour.

Despite major development projects being undertaken by the Fifth Phase Government not to mention the crackdown on corruption, elimination of ghost and unqualified workers from the payroll, among others, Dr Magufuli has proved wrong those elements who previously took Tanzania for granted.

The elements have been using foreign media outlets, particularly the London based “The Economist” to discredit and hurling all kind of insults not only at the President but the scholars and at a wider spectrum the people of Tanzania.

This can vividly be confirmed by series of publications of the newspaper including the just recent article of which even the author is not attributed, claiming that; “John Magufuli is fostering a climate of fear in Tanzania.”

Just like the past articles, the biased newspapers and those behind the mudsling campaign have resorted to telling unashamed lies combined with factual errors, a typical coverage of western media against Africa and its people.

For those with clear mind should however expect such kind of dirty tricks being channeled through the newspaper given Dr Magufuli purge on corruption locally and review of dubious contracts signed in the past with foreign conglomerates who looted Tanzania’s resources in broad light.

The article used upsetting words against Tanzania’s scholars describing them as “sycophantic academics,” their “mistake” being praising Dr Magufuli for his committed running of the country during the three years.

This suggests that the prophets of doom would want the patriotic scholars at the country’s oldest University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) to have blasted Dr Magufuli during the symposium to reflect on his three years in office.

Unfortunately, the 175-year-old having been established in September 1843, without any proof or tangible evidence wanted to convince the world that opposition lawmakers who have been ditching their parties willingly to join the ruling party CCM are being bribed 60 million shillings!

One would expect such as old and hitherto respected newspaper would present evidence on the claims of bribes to lay bare what could have been one of major scandals for President Magufuli and the ruling party.

It claimed to have talked to one lawyer who has represented opponents of the regime alleging that every opposition MP who has rejected a bung has a pending charge against them. At least it should have brought such evidence to the public.



The fight against corruption under President Magufuli has not only been undertaken within the central and local governments but also within his party, CCM. It should be remembered he formed a commission to probe all looting of the party assets.

As if that was not enough, President Magufuli sacked close to 20,000 ghost and unqualified workers from the payroll and hence saving billions of money in salaries. This is however not a story publishing The Economist.

On Monday this week, Tanzania’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation, Dr Augustine Mahiga, was clear-cut that the European Union (EU) Ambassador in Tanzania, Mr Roeland van de Geer, was not expelled but rather recalled by the EU after mutual discussion by authorities from both sides.

Dr Mahiga, a seasoned diplomat, had to make the explanation after rumours went around claiming the envoy was called amid a diplomatic row.

As it was expected, the newspaper with its ill intention took up the blather, suggesting that the issue “had alarmed the West due a deterioration in human rights and the rule of law.

It is quite apparent that the author of the author has never set a foot in Tanzania to understand the situation on the ground or wrote the lies deliberately to please his/her master/s, adding another falsehood that; “barely a week passes without brazen displays of arbitrary power”.

Bizarrely, the London-based newspaper defends suspects who have been arraigned with cases of money laundering, corruption and economic sabotage, describing the charges as being “trumped-up.”

These very Western forces have been bitter when corruption scandals are reported and suspects left to walk scot-free.

Most of us still remember how the thrift and intolerance for corruption won Dr Magufuli attention and admiration worldwide. In the social media sphere, commentators celebrated his zeal playfully with the hashtag, “#WhatWouldMagufuliDo”.

It’s suffice to comment that, under President Magufuli, Tanzania’s fifth Five Year Plan restores industrialisation to the heart of government policy in a way unseen since the 1970s. Domestic processing and tax revenue is central to that plan. So is government discipline, thrift and tax collection.

Ends.

Beutiful illustration, without any supporting concrete evidence of your points though.

How about i make some short questions for you, to illustrate them too, that you have not touched in your "submission brief" thereof.

1) How would you evaluate the reasoning of our "SECURITY FORCES", "GOVERNMENT", "PARLIAMENT" behind Mr. Tundu Lissu's attempt assasination, in a second most "SECURED" place in our beloved country (the parliament after the magogoni house/Ikulu).?????

2) How would you justify the issue, whereby "ONLY" opposition party members have been behind bars/arrested/taken to court with dubious/defamation cases (at the end they always win in court)????? Are they only the criminals due to their opposition???

NOTE THAT; ARTICLE 12 of the Constituion states that, "all human beings are born free and equal" and "every person is entitled to recognition and respect of his/her dignity"

ARTICLE 13, proceeds to state that "all persons are equal before the law and are entitled, without discrimination, to protection and equality before the law".

ARTICLE 14, states that "EVERY PERSON HAS THE RIGHT TO LIVE AND TO THE PROTECTION OF HIS LIFE BY THE SOCIETY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAW".

ARTICLE 18, The right of freedom of expression.

ARTICLE 20, The right of freedom of association which states that "every person has a freedom to freely and peacefully ASSEMBLE, ASSOCIATE and COOPERATE with others. And for that purpose, EXPRESS THEIR VIEWS PUBLICLY and to form and join with associations or organizations for preserving or furthering his beliefs or interests or any other interests.


3) The "government" giving orders/refusing for opposition parties to assemble, associate and cooperate with others publicly or privately, arent the orders illegal as per THE CONSTITUTION ARTICLE 20???? Who is above the CONSTITUION (SHERIA MAMA YA NCHI)??? Doens't the government infringe the law/constitution for not allowing people to use their rights given???

4) The DC of Dar es Salaam attempting to unlawfully/by force entering the premises of CLOUDS FM armed with fire arms. Without an Arrest Warranty/Search Warranty/Street Leaders. Wasn't it a CULPABLE ARMED ROBBERY??? (a crime worth 30 years imprisonment to life sentence in accordance to the law)

NB I believe your smart enough to understand, because you havent given me the reason to believe your dumb yet. Unless your those kind of people who sees white as black, and yellow as blue (Lumumba Boys)

So just think/illustrate/evaluate "wisely" those just 3 questions i have asked above. I do not need to make further points thereof as it will be a waste of my precious time at the moment.

Mwenendo wa hivi karibuni wa jarida kongwe la "The Economist" kuchapisha habari za upande mmoja, kuongeza chumvi na kukosoa kila anaetoa maoni chanya ya mwenendo wa serikali au Rais JPM unatia shaka. Mfano ni makala yao ya hivi karibuni inayodai kuwa 'JPM anatengeneza mazingira ya hofu Tanzania'

Ilitarajiwa kufuatia mapambano ya dhati ya serikali dhidi ya rushwa, watumishi hewa, mikataba ya hasara ya uwekezaji kwa taifa lazima kutatokea vikundi au watu watakaofanya hujuma kwa kuwa wameathiriwa kimfumo na mapambano dhidi ya vitendo tajwa hapo juu.
Katika hali isiyotarajiwa Jarida hilo limekuwa kinara likikosoa juhudi mbalimbali ambazo serikali imekuwa ikizifanya.

Mbali na ukosoaji,

1. Kwa nini linatetea watuhumiwa wa rushwa na utakasaji fedha kwa hoja kuwa wanasingiziwa!? Uthibitisho wao uko wapi!

2.Kwa nini linatia chumvi suala la balozi wa EU kuitwa brussels licha ya ufafanuzi rasmi kutoka kwa Waziri mwenye dhamana na mwanadiplomasia Mkongwe Dkt. Mahiga!?

3.Ina maana jarida hilo halioni lolote zuri linalofanywa na serikali ya awamu ya tano ya Tanzania!?

Shime Watanzania tusikubali kugawanywa na watu hao wasio na nia njema na wasioitakia mema Nchi yetu. "Mwenye macho haambiwi tazama" hatuoni flyover ya Mfugale inavyosaidia, ujenzi wa SGR unaondelea, Elimu bure, vita dhidi ya rushwa, Ujenzi wa kasi wa miundombinu kama barabara nchi nzima n.k???

Mwisho.
