Was Kange wrong on drones? Were they really dumb idea?

Don't think so! How many times we blamed firefighters for not being proactive but rather reactive?

With congested roads and fire generating plenty of smoke, drones could be a smart tool in the hands of firefighters

They could easily plan which road less congested to reach targeted houses under blaze and can also plan what kind of equipment needed for rising or basement buildings

Even how much water is needed and the lengths of hose pipes

My findings lead me to believe Kange wasn't wrong after all!

Have you been watching our hypocrites in Moi funeral? They label the departing leader a mentor to them but when he was alive they despised his ideas of federal East African government

In death they went to bury him not to mourn for his legacy gone ignored!

Key question is if he was really your mentee why did you spurn his political federation ideas?

You formed useless committee to gather ideas on unification, you received their report with gusto then you quietly laid the report under the carpet where it is gathering dust with amok!

Why did you repatriate working Kenyans when your comfort zone was under spotlight?

An interesting political figure is ex PM whose jumpsuit allows him to hop one political party after another proclaiming his deeds are principles motivated but we know he is power monger.

From his oldest party, he cried aloud foul when his presidential aspirations were ended and he joined the opposition while cajoling others to follow suit.
With a huge relief nobody paid attention to his pleas of solidarity

Before jumping titanic ship, his attempt to reconnect with local politics were met with rejection after rejection a failure to realize the politics terrain had shifted below his feet.

In opposition he barely endured the vagaries of political wilderness whereof his questionable assets particularly on illegal acquisition of land led him enduring spats with authorities who were eager to paint him as a land grabber..

Perhaps, his worst failing was to think he needs top opposition post as his vehicle to run for presidency without recognizing power play in the opposition is as complicated as in the home stretch ...

We need a law which will suspend pension to those retirees still active in politics and by doing so we will rid of ourselves of the charades we just endured

Active retirees needs to chose continuing picking their monthly cheques or trudging a second bite in our political arena.

It is a modicum of decency we expect from our lawmakers

Can somebody from ministry of foreign affairs explain to us why our kids are not taken back from Wuhan?

A claim, they are safe is a height of abdication of civic duty.

Nobody is safe from Coronavirus and claiming they are from safe home stretch is really reckless and absurd!

Just dispatch those jumbos and bring them home, after diplomatic acquisition with the Chinese authorities

It is sad when we see North African nations liaising with their Chinese counterparts and get their people home so what is wrong with us?

In Libyan catharsis, Membe the then Foreign minister dismissed the plight of our people caught in the midst of a civil war demanding his ministry needs to know why they went there in the first place... I still think this "you are on your own" attitude still prevalent and enduring despite claims of Tanzania mpya blah blah...

Moi legacy is more of Kenneth Kaunda's than Nyerere's. The former two were instrumental in reinstatement of multiparty politics in their nations while still in power sacrificing their personal security of tenure in order to maintain the security of their nations but Nyerere only advocated for the same after he was no longer in power and had nothing to lose personally.

That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment? Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds; Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he? He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night. The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.

Love or hate him, Rugemarila recent vibe seems to resonate with many pundits and it sounds as "scratch my back and I will scratch yours"!

We knew about Mkombozi where we learnt of new misamiati like "sandarusi" and we were very much alive to Stanbic "hidden nomenclature treasures" but BOT may have dipped their fingers directly from the infamous TEGETA ESCROW ACCOUNT is a jaw dropping tidings. Looks like fingers caught in the sweets jar red-handed.. Teh Teh Teh.

It is difficult to imagine in our wacky list of "who is who" didn't dip his grubby fingers in the TEGETA ESCROW ACCOUNT!


From this new defense, clearly Rugemarila is saying he is innocent and his defense is he never touched or received a penny from the TEGETA ESCROW ACCOUNT!

If this is true, and it is easier for him to prove through his accounts banking statements then it is upto to DPP to seek court orders requesting BOT to furnish the court with the names, account numbers and more importantly who authorized the TEGETA ESCROW Account draining of the turbid swamp

We need this duo safe and sound by hooks or by crooks as they could be a missing link to open this "TEGETA ESCROW ACCOUNT" can of worms and we need full forensic auditing to get to the bottom of this. Or we will have a legitimate reason to surmise as follows.... no wonder no hearing has been carried out because the whole caboodle is a political gimmick to mislead the general public a war on official graft is well underway while a major cover up is earnestly underway condemning the innocent to protect the guilty.

Curiously, the government position was Escrow money belonged to private people if what my brother Rugemarila is averring is true then the government position was an unfathomable lie and that puts the hitherto rulers in a very queasy dilemma: A promise not to unearth the cemetery may have been given per incurium Teh Teh Teh

Could this be the right time to withdraw a misplaced promise to shield the suspected crooks from the long arm of the DPP?

Or am I dreamer?

Identity politics is our doom. On campaign trail we talk of unity, equality and non discrimination along ideological and political aisle lines but all presidential appointments do injustice to these nobler platitudes.

We are on identity politics denial but in intra party meetings we reassure party cadres there are many government jobs for them such promises are never given on the stump.

At least the youth during campaigns are duped of vacuous appointments in the government but time and time again frail looking graying old folks continue to enjoy the perks of government appointments!

The politics of identity are our new tribes trumping the old ethnic divisions

Politics of identity now means you are either with us or you are our number one enemy with zero in between:pinging huyu ni mwenzetu au siyo mwenzetu.

In 1985, it was all decorous for CCM to market Mzee Rukhsa huyu ni mwenzetu because we were in the curses of one party rule so one cannot raise the red flags of discrimination.

But in multiparty era, appointments to government solely based on political party affiliations are discriminatory, and hence unconstitutional and sadly we have no institutional setup to row back such negative habits to our political and national cohesion, peace and tranquility.

Government jobs have become a staple source of CCM survival and stay in power and days are gone where charisma, cult of personality or party dogma let alone policies have been deployed as unifiers.

So from this official graft, we need to understand and fully appreciate our electoral process is rigged abinitio in favor of the ruling party.

The election commission is tamped to the rim with ccm party zealots who have a conspicuous motive to rig elections in multifarious ways.

NEC despite what is detailed in the constitution and election laws is by afar not impartial because all of its appointees are presidential ones, and sadly the presidential institution has motives to rig elections.

There are no iota of checks and balances of these unparalleled presidential appointments and lack of transparency, criteria and dissociation of a staple stakeholder clearly there is no credible path to free, fair and credible elections.

If a leaf is borrowed from past elections, expectants of a day where our elections will tick international standards will soon be messaging their disappointments.

How do elections rigged in Tanzania?

1) Police roles in denying opposition permits is just a curtain raiser but chasing away or locking away opposition party election invigilators is not even a dessert but a starter.

2) Constant political persecutions of the opposition with no sign of abating intimidate constitutional pillars of freedom of speech, association and expression which now are on backsliding mode to colonial era felonies of repackaging those time tested tenets to incitement!

3) Apportioning almost a hundred percent of government media houses coverage to brainwash voters suck but is just a drop in the ocean behind massive rigging

4) Vote tallying, manual transportation of tallied forms, and empowering ccm cadres doubling as constituent election supervisors - a gratitude of election laws which have grossly insubordinated NEC to CCM staffed local governments ensure vivid and systemic rigging is the order of the day!

5) NEC recalcitrance to SUBDUE herself to latest technology such as kims kits in electronic transportation and tallying of results is a subterfuge to continue empowering CCM cadres in the local governments to wantonly rig our elections.

The technology to announce all election results within 24 hrs is on market but expect NEC to seek succour in archaic excuses of vast geographical area, rain, transportation bottlenecks inferring roads pathetic situations despite solar empowered contraptions now festooning our electronics marketplace!

6) Voter registration is provided few days for the purposes and intents to promote voter apathy and limit the number of registered voters as much as possible who are likely to vote in the opposition particularly the youth millennial. When the jobless witness long, meandering queues and weigh in when they had a last meal the choices between a constitutional duty against belly prerogatives we know who is an outright winner. Why two weeks and why not six month registration period to do away with the encumbrances of constraining the registration period.

7) Refusal to permit media outlets to tally polling stations announced results is a scrumptious dessert we have been longing for

8) Presidential appointees have developed a new vibe of disqualifying all opposition for odious lack of qualifications essentially hijacking constitutional imperatives of voters to choose leaders of own preference. If you question these abuses of public office you are reminded to pursue judicial redress but my unanswered question remains are objectives of elections to choose leaders or creating fertile grounds for unceasing litigations?

9) Judiciary has been disempowering voters by knocking off election laws which empower voters to seek legal redress whenever they have legitimate reason to question election results. Voter apathy is also hastened by judiciary eagerness to placate the state ferocious appetite to disenfranchise powerless voters endlessly.

10) Constitutional imperative to tap only senior members of the judiciary as Chairman of NEC are discriminatory and though provided in the constitution are still offending it. Besides, such a docket is an executive one demanding least judicial knowledge but gargantuan executive experience so it is a serious manpower misallocation. Moreover, such favoritism has deprived the nation a spoil of talent choices constraining ourselves to judges who may not necessarily be apt to the demands of the executive ridden challenges

The opposition in Tanzania remains very corrupt and led by scatterbrained power mongers and we know them by their deeds: Weirdly, they preach good governance and the rule of law as their motto but they despise internal democracy in their own political parties!

They clamor for accountability, transparency and democracy in the government but that charity never begins at home! Though, Sumaye has outlived his political relevance but he has exposed further the soft underbelly of the opposition. Targeting to replace Mbowe was the straw that broke the camel's spinal cord. Zitto Kabwe unceremonious CHADEMA exit was because he assailed to unseat dictatorial Mbowe who is running CHADEMA as his personal fiefdom. The grapevine of conspiracy theorists is still resolute to churn out their fecund imaginations of what led to the freak accident behind Chacha Wangwe untimely death after he declared his political intent to send Mbowe packing his bags home... Seven Arusha or so councilors lost their elected offices not because voters who elected them had rejected them but because never ending party internal squabbles said so! Most of opposition membership disqualifications is associated with jostling for power and its aftermath!

In the opposition just like in the ccm there are hazier boundaries demarcating party functions from government functions. So because political parties value not the doctrine of separation of powers no wonder the government behaves in similar manner.


Mbowe is like Magufuli playing cameo roles in political party and the government demarcating not the said functions but the palpable difference is the former is hypocritical to demand the doctrine of separation of powers a value not embraced by his own party.

So because all political parties disregard the doctrine of separation of powers no wonder our political system is such an eunuch to combat official graft whenever it rears its ugly hydra.

The clamor for a new constitutional order is an exercise in futility if it evades to untangle our legal, economic and political predicament.

So as the opposition fights to nip tuck and tweak our constitutional order without clear and achievable objectives miserably I must soliloquy they are wasting their energy.

Just to cite an example, the opposition was grinning ear to ear in support of the Warioba constitutional disorder which only cemented even amore the status quo ante!

Paradoxically, the Warioba constitutional sellout diminished executive accountability in most overtly ways when they raised a threshold of impeachment of the president from two third majority to three quarters!

Shockingly, while the Warioba commission conceded the views of the majority demanded the presidential powers be trimmed and shared with the parliament but the Warioba deceit dropped a couple of dollops here and there to delude some of us there were checks and balances enactments while that was not a case!

On parliamentary ratification of presidential appointments only a handful were acquiesced but the majority were business as usual.

On the composition and appointment of the election commission, the Warioba recommendations were to offend the doctrine of separation of powers by reincarnating the chief justice and the speaker of the house with their surrogates as members of the commission! Again, nobody in our vociferous political class read or cry evil which in itself say and speak volumes of dearth of political skills and intellect just to name a few.

While the Appeals Court wrongly decided in AG vs Rev. Christopher Mtikila that constitutional articles were not in conflict but complementary and self sustaining but we know with clear conscience that is not necessarily the case. Obviously, members of the Bench dabbling in execution mandates obliterates the pillars of the doctrine of separation of powers and to suggest otherwise is anything but wise.

The judiciary decisions on separation of powers have been self serving as the Rev. Mtikila vs. AG amply demonstrated. In the first instance of this litigation the High Court concurred with Rev. Mtikila that our constitution has article of separation of powers but dodged the bullet by claiming there were no enforceable laws in the books of our statutes spelling out how and in which ways individuals will be required to behave!

But skimming through a number of court decisions without being bogged down by personalities involved in those decisions we can boldly confirm the executive has been deploying a carrot and stick deadly games to discipline the judiciary. The infamous Mtikila decision on independent candidates is a case in hand but there are many judicial decisions that leaned to please the executive and mock the rule of law which defeats the justifications of why we have the judiciary to begin with.

Other cases include the dispute on pension where the bone of contention was those who were beneficiaries of pension prior to enactment of new law curtailing those rights from age 50 to 55 was unconstitutional but the appeals court disagreed for reasons which are not worthy an ink in this dissemination.

The Bawata case became the hallmark of needlessly technicalities with the real dispute not considered an urgent matter of resolution!

Even takrima was seen in different lights by our judiciary.

There are glimmers of hope, though, with the current chief justice that less leaning to please the executive is gearing up as the landmark decision on non requirement of leave in Labour Court decisions appeallable in the court of appeal settled a hive of contradictory decisions from the same court.

In the delightful and momentous decision of Gasper Peter penned down by her Lordship Mwarija ably assisted by her compatriots Hon justices Juma and Wambari the Appeals Court from its own initiative scolded the wiles of a respondent who had parlayed rules of the Court on missing inconsequential documents attempting to deprive an appellant a legitimate right to a hearing but the Court invoked the overriding objectives principle to dismiss the misplaced exertions of the respondent.

But do we need to be captives of individual moral compass is a question demand no response...

But active members of judiciary who have been rewarded with plum executive jobs tend to side with the executive as the notorious Chairman of political parties has emboldened and enveloped defiance to the rule of law and good governance a gratitude of violations of the doctrine of separation of powers.

It is in this light we need to appraise our insensitive and insular election commission which under its current constitution and modus operandi is expected to deliver a 2020 election which is not free, fair and credible despite executive reiterations to the contrary.
