    Of recent we have seen a new development in Tanzania political arena.The Goverment is now using the police force to suppress the opposition especially CHADEMA, in the interval of two days two innocent souls have been terminated by the police leaving behind orphans,widows and dependants who will now have to suffer due to the ruling party's intention to cling to power by all means.The young and energetic boy killed in Morogoro few days ago and now a journalist in Iringa is a continuation of the killings by the state .if the international community continue to ignore these killing on the excuse of non interference to internal affairs of the country,many innocent people will continue to be brutally murdered by the trigger happy Tanzania police.How many should be killed before the international community and human right organs realise that we are heading to a bloody path?The western countrie and the US have been in a forefront in condemning human right violation in the arab world but silent when similar killings are happening in Tanzania.Is their voice determined by the number of death?I think when human right is violated by the state and when the state organs are used to suppres democracy the international community's reaction should not be trigered by the number of people killled,they should not wait for the mass killing to intervene,ofcourse looking at the trend mass killing is around the corner but the international community should not wait for that to happen.It is a high time you take action instead of just watching as if nothing is happening and look as if you condone waht is being done by the CCM Goverment.I am persoally afraid what the Goverment is doing to suppres the opposition may lead to violence and reprisals because VIOLENCE BEGETS VIOLENCE.

    There is a day they will be held accountable. Suppression of political opponents by killings.

    It's tge time the Goverment to recognize that public awareness isnt that of old times, Tanzania is populated with alot of youth( employed and unemployed) students and non-students, these are spirited with whatever is happening, now with valot if the Goverment wont take action to priotize the Countries needs over the Ruling party's ..worse could happen.

    It has always made me wonder what is the criteria the international community observes to act when it comes to human right violation.Western governments take the lead in the so called international community. It is all hypocrisy I think. You think they would give it a dime if their interests are not affected by the violations? Think about it i.e. the gold, the natural gas, the uranium the diamonds etc. etc to be foregone because of the deaths of isolated cases of a news paper vendor and a third world journalist in insignificant towns like Morogoro and Mufindi? If the existing government is their comfortable zone, to acquire what they need, forget about their condemnation for the human rights violation actions that are currently taking place in Tanzania. When their interests are jeopardized you will hear a lot of noise until then forget!!!!!!

    I entirely agree that the International Community can do something to help bring the government to its senses. However, history furnishes us with innumerable examples of how procrastinating the International communaty can be. The so called international comm has also been politicized and only comes out when the interests of its big sponsors are threatened. As Tanzanians, we have a key role to play. If we want to say NO to these senseless murders we can. Lets explore first the home-based solutions before we ask help from the int. comm. We ar not late.

    The difference is.

    Syrians are physicaly weak than Tanzanians but they stood and still standin up for their rights for months now, Tanzanians can't hold on for two days straight up.

    Syrians are richer than Tanzanians even during this hardship, And Tanzanians are poor sitting only a lot of resources.

    Strategists wa mambo ya siasa kwenye vyombo vyetu vya usalama sijui kama wanajua wanalofanya. Kuna namna ya kuzuia mambo lakini hili la kuua hovyo hovyo litawarudi big time. Kwanini matumizi ya nguvu zilizopitiliza kwenye hoja ndogo za kisiasa?

    Inatupasa tusimame kidete wenyewe kuhakikisha mambo hayo tunayakomesha bila ya kutegemea mataifa ya magharibi, kwa sababu hata huko Arabs world ukweli ni kuwa mataifa ya magharibi yanachokifanya ni kumuondoa kiongozi moja na kumuweka kibaraka na kuendelea kuchochea mapigano ya ndani huku wenyewe wakichota mafuta na rasilimali zingine. Ukweli mataifa ya magharibi yamefaidika sana na vurugu za uarabuni, sitaki waje wafaidike na hapa Tanzania. Tusimame wenyewe hakuna nguvu inayoizidi nguvu ya watu, TUTASHINDA.

    Govenment? Tanzania does not have any this time. What kind of a govenment which would be using its own polise force to kill the innocent people?
    Tanzanian president is busy roaming the world at the expence of his own tax payers money. He has left the country under his brother-in-law Said Mwema, whose job is to finish those against his friend. Kikwete has no idea what is brewing by his lacking in terms of leadeship. CCM is killing in a day light we don't know what will happen in two years when election aproaches. Tanzania under Kikwete is in a big trouble!
