Five challenges will face Magufuli

Tha hand picked President with out expecting in his life one day he will be a President but Kikwete was looking for some one to hide his ill deals. Kikwete did his thorough investigation  went all the way to Chato to dig on Magufuli to his parents if he is the guy can let him retire peacefully with out digging his deals. It remind me how CCM work when Nyerere overthrow Zanzibar Second President Aboud Jumbe with out consulting Zanzibari voters but only through CHAMA KUSHIKA HATAMU. Nyerere saw Zanzibar is sleeping away from his hands only option was to remove and detain him  in Kigamboni. Aboud Jumbewasdetained for 30 days with no contact to his family even his phone was taken away and his body guard were removed and his Presidential jet was returned to Zanzibar  , after this plan Nyerere was looking for trusted Zanzibari to keep Zanzibar on his hands. Nyerere dispatched his security Emissary to Zanzibar to reach to Mzee Ruksa Ali Hassan Mwinyi, MWinyi got tip from his Friends security Organs was looking for him .Mwinyi left stown Zanzibar to Mangapawani Village to hide to wonder what did he do ? Mwinyi now he thought is in serious trouble so the only option was for him to go hiding but later his friends tip him Nyerere was lookin for him so he Can be Zanzibar President.Finally Mwinyi came out from his secret hiding place and was dispached, to Dar for Talks with Mwalimu Nyerere.

1 Corruption

Change was the buzzword during the election campaign. Now people will expect him to engage in a major house-cleaning exercise by showing the door to corrupt government officials and old-school public servants.
This will pose a huge political risk, as they are well-entrenched in CCM. But Mr Magufuli, the former works minister, will have to tackle corruption head-on, as Tanzanians have had enough of it.

His first big test will come with the appointment of a cabinet.
Will it be made up of people untainted by corruption? If not, voters will be disappointed.
After all, he has built his political career on the promise that he is not scared of taking risks, and that he works hard and acts fast.

2) Jobs

Although the official unemployment rate is at around 10%, people sometimes get the impression that the crisis bigger – a recent advert for 70 jobs in the public service posts attracted more than 10,000 applications. Interviews had to be held in a football stadium.

Almost half of Tanzania’s 50 million-strong population is made up of young people, and they are worst-affected by unemployment.
They voted with great enthusiasm, believing their fortunes will change under Mr Magufuli.
He will be under most pressure from them to deliver on his promise to create jobs – and end poverty.
He has promised to revive industries which are in bad shape, like the cotton and fish processing sectors.

3) Education

Mr Magufuli has promised children free education from kindergarten to secondary school.

While many Tanzanians welcome this, they feel it is not enough. They want a higher standard of education with improved curriculums so that Tanzania can have a better-skilled work force.
Mr Magufuli will be hard-pressed to meet their demands – almost all state schools are short of desks, books and teachers.

4) Zanzibar crisis   

With last October  elections in Zanzibar scrapped unconstitunally put Magufuli Presidency in Question as well.

When Mr Kikwete came to power, he promised to bring the semi-autonomous islands, popular with tourists, closer to his sight.
But as he leaves the office, more than 60% of Zanzibaris want more autonomy for the archipelago – an indication of their dissatisfaction with the union.
If Mr Magufuli can bring about a lasting solution, he will go down in history as one of Tanzania’s most successful presidents – but it is a big if.

5) Constitutional reform

Outgoing President Jakaya Kikwete promised a new constitution, but failed to deliver on it during his 10 years in office.
The opposition gained many votes with its promise to make sweeping changes to the constitution – including reducing presidential powers and guaranteeing the impartiality of state institutions, like the electoral commission.
