It is often unbecoming for the strong to surrender to the weak for protection. But today, in Arusha something happened which refutes this outlook. I was shocked if not terribly astonished when I heard from the Radio One breaking news that one ruling party cadre in Arusha (Youth Wing) crossed to the opposition. My big concern here that the ruling party cadres have made campaigns countrywide and have written books arguing that the opposition in Tz is weak and that it can nvever do any good. How then today they see opposition as a strong camp which can guarantee them security? Does this senario suggest that the ruling party's reign is coming to an end now? I welcome comments.
