And that is precisely how the culture of seeking political office to make money started. It started from the top.
We can never hope to win the fight against corruption until we address this root origin of political power and grabbing our money from poor Zanzibari. There is no way Zanzibar will move forward without revealing the cause of in security of some Politicians in Zanzibar how they will inherit the power from one family to another.And how they have got rich from bogus investors and bogus contracts which have cost the country dearly.
And how do we do it?
The next government should have a truth and reconciliation commission set up where all these crimes against the people should be tabled. The perpetrators or their descendants should be forgiven. (There is really no way you can prosecute all of them). Only then can start again and move on to a new culture where people will never again seek political office to gain wealth or worse still to protect their wealth. What wealth is that that cannot be protected by the constitution?
Listen to former Nigerian President on Zanzibar political situation.
Information leaked from the corridors of power has observers asking themselves: how deeply indebted is this country to its so-called ‘first families’? It has been revealed that the Sheni succession,He will be forced about to precipitate a major cabinet re-shuffle after March 20th rubber-stamp election. The reshuffle will elevate Hussein Mwinyi to the Vice Presidency, and in the process put him in pole position to be named the country’s next President? This was Mzee Ruksa’s demand, when they have state house discussion in exchange for letting Dr. Sheni to break the
constitution and remain illegally in the Zanzibar Presidency. It is very clear that, last October, Dr Sheni lost to Former First Vice President Seif Sheriff Hamad. Hamad got 200,077 Votes 52.87 % compared to Dr Sheni who got 178,363 votes.47.1% Zanzibar
How ever Magogoni State House is holding the Key.Which is very Clear Last October election Dr Sheni lost to Former First Vice President Seif Sheriff Hamad .Hamad got 200,077 Votes 52.87 % compared to Dr Sheni who got 178,363 votes.47.1%
Magogoni state house is holding the Key for next Zanzibar President .
THE FIGHT FOR VICE PRESIDENT POSITION .Now the war is between three members of the old guard. All are former Ambassadors, and they are positioning themselves to inherit the power in
. I was told that Magogoni has demanded new blood and reform inside CCM Zanzibar, and that the next Sheni Government might not last long (just as Dr Idris Abdul Wakil was forced to retire in order to save the party). As I told you in 2013, Shein will be a one-term President, after claiming to have won the Zanzibar Presidency by 3800 votes. I even predict that Magufuli will be a one-term President if he cannot resolve the issue of the new Union Constitution – an issue that cost CCM Zanzibar dearly in last October election. Ambassador Seif Iddi’s fate in the post-Sheni alignments remains unclear, but what is clear is that he has out-lived his political usefulness in the current set-up. The appointment of Mwinyi’s son aims to give Hussein Mwinyi an upper hand on the succession battlefront.
Dirayetu, you can take the information you read on this post/blog to the bank. Folks, it is not a question of IF, but WHEN. In other words, you should expect to vote again much earlier than 2020, or you might see another Temporary Nusu Mkate (half loaf Government in which the two Lions of Zanzibar continue to share power for two years, and hold a new election after the Lions agree on when, and under what conditions, to bring peace to Zanzibar and reduce the diplomatic pressure on the Magufuli Government.
CCM has lost the mandate to govern alone in
. For example, since 1995 on the sister island of Zanzibar , the ruling party has lost all Union Parliamentary seats. This year, all seats in the Zanzibar House of Representatives as well all Union Parliament positions from Pemba were easily won by CUF. EVEN AFTER SPENDING OVER 400 million Tanzanian Shillings on saving seats on Pemba , CCM lost its three diwani (councilor) positions. There is in fact speculation inside the CCM that that campaign money was pocketed by some politician. Insider information says that after Maalim announced his wining numbers, some CCM leaders blamed each other for stealing CCM campaign money and helping to lose the election. So there are MAJIPU (infected boils of corruption) on CCM Zanzibar. Many of these so-called MAJIPU center on who will hold ministerial portfolios in the next government. Pemba Island
Many unpopular characters, like Ambassador Seif Iddi , Shamsi Nahodha , Ali Karume and the former African Union Ambassador Amina Salim Ali are hoping for cabinet positions. But don’t be surprised if these names will not appear in
political arena. anzibar Z
ANOTHER OPTION ON THE TABLE
If another (Nusu Mkate) temporary Government is formed and operates for the next two years, it is likely that New Vice President Hussein Mwinyi will be new Candidate for the CCM Zanzibar Presidency.
In the October 2015 election, CCM and CUF split
constituencies 50/50. CUF and CCM each got 27 seats. If diplomats shuttle around and manage to arrange the formation of another Nusu Mkate government We have less than two weeks before the cancellation of this ten-billion-shilling unconstitutional rerun election takes place. Let’s wait and see if the two lions can come together and form a Nusu Mkate Government, or if CCM will hold onto power solo. Zanzibar
Zanzibar academics are now have different opinion that the two parties, CUF and CCM, should run a Comoro-style government, in which, in a variation of a ‘two-round’ system, each island chooses a leader, and, every five years, the presidency rotates between the major islands. Such a system, if implemented in
, could reduce tensions, and prevent any one side from feeling over-ruled by the other. Others have gone so far as to suggest that Zanzibar
Others have gone so far as to suggest that the results of the 2010 GNU referendum (in which 66% of Zanzibaris voted in support of the Government of National Unity), is a sign that we should ask Zanzibari on referendum the
