Mabadiliko ni mchakato endelevu, yasipoleta tija kuna n’gwe ya pili, tatu nk

August 21, 2015 § Leave a comment

Baadhi ya Watanzania tunaotaka mabadiliko tunajichanganya. Tunazunguka mbuyu kwenye maoni yetu, tunaacha maswali badala kutoa majibu. Tunasema hatuna hakika tunataka mabadiliko gani halafu bado tunayataka. Tunasema hatuipendi CCM lakini tunaonyana tusiikatae hivihivi. Inachanganya sana kusoma maoni ya wadau wa mabadiliko kwa sasa. Kwa kawaida kabisa ukizungumzia mabadiliko ya kisiasa ni kubadili mfumo kutoka wa zamani kwenda mfuma mbadala (mpya). Bila shaka mabadiliko yoyote yaliyosubiriwa na jamii kwa muda mrefu hupokelewa kwa furaha bila kujali kesho patatokea nini. Idd Amin alipompindua Milton Obote, Waganda walilipuka kwa nderemo mitaani. Vivyo hivyo Kanu iliposhindwa Kenya, wakenya walifurahi sana (hata wale waliokuwa Kanu).

Consequences kwa mabadiko haya yalokuja kwa njia tofauti yalikuwa tofauti. Raia waliyafurahia na hiyo si dhambi. Kwa sababu watu wanapotaka mabadiliko maana yake kuna kitu hawaridhiki nacho. Kitakachotekea baadaye kama madhara ya mabadilko huwezi kuwalaumu watu kwa maamuzi waliyofanya bali mnaingia tena kwenye n’gwe ya pili ya mabadilko. Hakuna palipoandikwa kuwa mabadliko huwezi kuyabadilisha baadaye ukiona hayakuwa na tija. Ni kuwadanganya watanzania kuwashawishi kuwa mabadiliko watakayoyafanya sasa yateleta mbingu. Mabadiliko ni mchakato endelevu. Nikipima mambo yote kisiasa, kiuongozi, kiuchumi, huduma za jamii, utawala bora, bado naona ni wakati mwafaka wa Watanzania kubadili mfumo wa utawala wa sasa. Miaka zaidi ya hamsini imetosha. Kuna haja kabisa ya kubadili huu mfumo. Nimeanza kupiga kura tangu mwaka 1985, pamoja na concern zilizojitokeza kwa upinzani, hili la kutambua kwamba hawawezi kuleta mabadiliko ya kisiasa hadi tu pale watakapoungana, na vyama vinne vimeungana, kuna sababu bora zaidi ya kusupport mabadilko kwa sasa kuliko wakati mwingine wowote. Propaganda kabla ya uchaguzi zitakuwa nyingi lakini sauti ya mabadiliko ya kisiasa nchini siku zote itakuwa ya juu zaidi. Ni maamuzi yetu ama tubadili mfumo au tuendelee kama tulivyo.

Lowassa amekuwa subject ya mazungumzo na utata. Vinara wa mfumo hodhi wa sasa wanajenga hoja kwamba sasa hivi mabadilko hayawezekani tena kwa sababu ya Lowassa. Nalipinga hili kwa sababu kuu mbili: 1. Mabadilko ambayo nayataka kisiasa hayajajengwa juu ya imani kwa mtu fulani. Yamejengwa juu ya haja kwamba mfumo mpya hautachukulia kila kitu poa, mfumo mpya utakuwa unaelewa kwa nini nimewaweka wao nikawaacha wale. 2. Mungu hutelekeleza azma yake bila kujali wanadamu. Mipango yake haitegemei wanadamu kwa sababu hubadilika. Ibrahimu katika msahafu aliahidiwa na Mungu kupewa mtoto na kwamba uzao wake utakuwa mwingi kama mchanga wa bahari. Baada ya miaka kadha Ibrahim hakupata mtoto kama alivyotegemea. Wakakubaliana na mke wa Sarah amwingie mjakazi, wakapata mtoto. Ibrahimu alikosea lakini bado Mungu alimpa mtoto kutoka katika viuno vyake. Mungu alikuwa anataka kuleta mfumo wa taifa kupitia Ibrahim. Vivyo hivyo nikifikiria Tanzania kuna siku lazima mfumo wa utawala utabadilika si lazima upitie kwa chama fulani unaweza kupitia kwa vyama (kama sasa hivi) au chama kingine, Hata kama kibinadamu kina mawaa. Mawaa si ajabu maana hata mfumo unaotawala sasa hivi una mawaa tena makubwa tu. Ni muhimu basi kuamua ama kuubadili au kubaki kama tulivyo na kuendelea kuwa nchi ya walalamikaji.

Whatever choices we make on 25th October we are Choosing a better Tanzania

August 5, 2015 § Leave a comment

Soon the political dusts will settle and we will cast our votes in a manner that suits our dream of the Tanzania we want. We have participated in multiparty elections since 1995, this is the 5th time now and we have enough experience to manage the process (for those in leadership) and bear the results in whichever direction they may come to us. At these moments it is sometimes difficult to reserve our party fanaticism and at times we are deceived to think those in support of the other parties are drastically wrong. I believe nobody is wrong and nobody is right but everybody has a choice, a choice that makes sense to her/him. Whichever choice we making we are choosing a better Tanzania. We need to accommodate our diversity of ideology, that makes our life interesting. It will be boring all of us (45 million people) to think the same way, make same choices and act same way. Having divergent views will finally settle us on the best, and in democracy the best is decided by majority and we will finally agree to disagree and move on.

This year’s election is believed to be the most closely contested one. I personally believe Tanzania will see political wrangles of the two major sides it has never witnessed before. If it will be truly so then these will be best moments of the history of this nation and those of us who are unto these times are greatly privileged. We longed for a long time to see two major political powers, we wished to have a strong opposition to constantly check those in power for the interest of us all. Perhaps these are the moments, perhaps we still have some few elections to come see a formidable opposition, it is really ecstatic to imagine! “Yetu macho na masikio”. In any case let us hold our peace, keep this country together despite our differences in views and choices. After election let us move on with the agenda which transcends beyond any party ideology and that is Change Tanzania​.

Mungu Ibariki Tanzania, Mungi Ibariki Afrika.

Where Am I?
