Bubu sijawahi, kubadili signature tangu nijiunge na Jf.
nikirudi kwenye mada, Unaweza kuona kuwa Salim A Salimu ni kiongozi ambaye viongozi wengi wanaweza kujifunza mambo mengi sana, kusema kweli mimi binafsi nilikuwa siijui historia ya huyu bwana mpaka nilipoidaka article. jamaa ni mtu wa kujiendeleza, cheki hata alipokuwa ameshakamata nafasi nyingi tu za juu lakini alikuwa haachi kujiendeleza kimasomo kila alipopata upenyo.
kinachoniacha hoi jamaa akiwa na miaka 39 tu(mwaka 1981) tayari keshaanza kuusarandia ukatibu mkuu wa UN

Hii ndio CV iliwekwa kule BCS lakini wengine tukarushiwa mchanga machoni; tukaambiwa etu urais hahutaji CV kubwa. Wakati JK alikuwa amempagawisha watu kama hawana akili nzuri!

Pamoja na uzoefu wake huyu jamaa na tena Mzanzibari sijui kwa nini CCM hawamtumii kwenye muafaka. kweli huyu asingeweza kutoa mchango maridhawa kwenye Muafaka wa zenji?

Nafasi haijapotea bado, watanzania tukitaka kumpa nafasi hiyo mbona ni kiasi cha kuamua. Ahsante kwa kutukumbusha hii cv tukufu, wanaJF tukimweleza utashi wetu na tukawambia watanzania wote tunachokiona ndani yake inawezekana kabisa hatimaye tukampa dhamana ya kuliongoza taifa.

Maoni yangu ni kwamba, tusiwachuanishe, tutafute namna ya kuunganisha hizi figures for the sake of our nation jamani, i can see that day when one of them is a perezida and the other is the VP,... LOVELY!!!, on that day the mafisadi chapter will be closed and a new Bongoland will be brought afloat!

Kuna mtu amezungumzia kumhusisha Dk Salim kwenye mwafaka!

Labda niulize swali... WHY Mwafaka??

KWanini waafrika hatujifunzi demokrasia?

Mbona US baada ya uchaguzi wa 2000 hakuna aliyezungumzia kuundwa kwa serikali ya mseto kati ya Bush na Gore.. tofauti ya kura ilikuwa 0.2%!!

Mbona hii miafaka iko Afrika tu?

Kama mtu akishindwa uchaguzi then analilia serikali ya mseto kuna haja gani basi ya kupiga kura.. kwa nini tusikubaliane tu . leo Rais anatoka CUF... VP CCM... baada ya miaka mitano zamu ya CCM.. VP atoke CUF.???????

Serikali inazidi kunenepa tu lakini tasa! Badala ya kufanya Reforms za maana tumekalia longolongo.. kuanzia bungeni hadi wenyeviti wa mitaa!

Inabidi tujifunze demokrasia. Chama kimeshindwa uchaguzi.. basi subirini next 5 years. In between, kaeni chini fanyeni uchambuzi yakinifu mlikosea wapi ili next time msishindwe uchaguzi... na kama chama kimeshinda uchaguzi kihakikishe kinatekeleza ilani yake ya uchaguzi ili next 5 years kiwe na evidence kwamba turudisheni madarakani.. we promised A, B , C... et cetera.. and we did it!

Si ndio maana watu wanasoma Political Science.. au kudesa kumezidi ikifikia ku-apply mambo tunaota matege kichwani??

Ingekuwa busara kama hela za walipa kodi zingetumika kwenye "vikao" vya kurekebisha katiba na kuboresha sheria za uchaguzi ili kuondoa mapungufu yanayojitokeza kila siku kama si kuyafuta kabisa!

Haya mambo ya Washington kutuamuru cha kufanya, sijui serikali ya mseto... ni Ukoloni tu!

Mbona wao hawajaribu huu upuuzi?
Washatuona Waafrika mazuzu.. akili kumkichwa Zero!
inabidi tuache kuwa dictated na wakoloni!

Kila mtu anajua kuwa Pemba strategically ni ngome ya CUF kama Republicans walivyo na ngome kubwa Southern States. Ila si sababu ya kupiga propaganda kwamba bila CUF kuwa ndani ya serikali basi Pemba haitaendelea au sijui kama CCM itatoka madarakani basi kutatokea machafuko ...crap!!

Tuko kwenye karne ya 21, hakuna kitu kinachoshindikana.

It is always possible to possibily the impossibilities... watu wamesulubiwa, wakafa, wakafufuka na kwa mkwala wakapaa mbinguni.. then wakaahidi watarudi kama walivyopaa... sembuse waafrika kujitawala bila kutegemea wakoloni????
