Lets wait and see the history of 2015 how it will Judge this people
Lets see how the history will Judge Former President Jakaya Kikwete using Tanzania military and Police to stop democracy in Zanzibar .I will advice many who remember 1961 election and the repeat of 1963 election in Zanzibar which was very violent and 38 people died. And many injured .I will advice CCM chairman and President Magufili to think gain how they will be remembered if CCM decide to force another election which I predict many lives of inocent,Zanzibari,will lost .
General elections were held in Zanzibar in July 1963. The number of seats was increased from 22 to 31, and the result was a victory for the Zanzibar Nationalist Party and Zanzibar and Pemba People's Party alliance, which won 18 seats, despite the fact that the Afro-Shirazi Party, which had won 13, claimed 54.2% of the vote. Voter turnout was estimated to be 99.1%.
The ZNP-ZPPP alliance, which involved the two parties not running candidates against each other in their strongholds, was invited to form a government, and led the country to independence on 10 December that year. However, on 12 January 1964, the Zanzibar Revolution brought the ASP to power.
. I do believe Violence and killings will be the only strategy for CCM to win any election in Zanzibar .Zanziabr are fed up with union security organs on human right violations and intimidation every election since 1995.I will not see my self any new election in Zanzibar with out seeing many former leaders and former CCM cadres avoid (ICC ) International criminal Court is likely to move to another country in East Africa form Kenya to Tanzania .I will caution the New Tanzania President now not to allow union security organs on any attempt to stop Democracy in Zanzibar. lets remind Magufuli Zanzibari did not forget 2001 Killings by Tanzania security force under Former President Bnjamin Mkapa if you are not aware about how security organs were involved shooting innocent protester in Zanzibar in January 27,2001 vist this link to refresh your mind. in January 2002, Tanzania's President Benjamin Mkapa announced the creation of an independent commission of inquiry to investigate human rights violations committed by Tanzanian security forces in Zanzibar a year before. In January 2001, the government security forces violently suppressed political demonstrations in Zanzibar that had been called to protest irregularities in the national elections of October 2000. Security forces - primarily the police, aided by the coastguard and the army - opened fire and assaulted thousands of unarmed demonstrators and others. In the following days, the security forces, joined by ruling party officials and militia, went on a rampage, indiscriminately arresting, beating, and sexually abusing island residents. Human Rights Watch estimates that at least thirty-five people were killed, and over 600 injured. Some two thousand Zanzibaris fled to nearby Kenya. The January 2001 abuses were the most egregious event to date in a pattern of repression by the Tanzanian national authorities, including the local Zanzibar government, against legitimate political opposition on the semi-autonomous islands of Zanzibar. The United Republic of Tanzania was formed in 1964 as a union between mainland Tanganyika and the Indian Ocean islands of Unguja and Pemba, which together comprise Zanzibar. Longstanding political tensions have become more overtly exacerbated since Tanzania underwent a transition to multi-party politics in 1992. Following widespread, internationally condemned election fraud in Zanzibar during the October 2000 national elections, Tanzania's major opposition party, the Civic United Front (CUF), called for countrywide protests to take place on January 27, 2001. The CUF also demanded constitutional reform. Broadly supported by other opposition parties, these protests - the largest in the nation's history - were generally peaceful, although there were several incidents of police harassment. vist this link to refresh your mind https://www.hrw.org/reports/2002/tanzania/zanz0402.pdf
