A supreme Court in Kenya rules in favour of NASA on their request to review the electoral system: anything Tanzania can learn from Kenya’s Constitution?
August 28, 2017 § 1 Comment
NASA is now granted review of the electoral system by the Supreme Court and the report shall be presented on Tuesday.
Despite the results of the review the Supreme Court has done justice. There is any harm to either side rights if the system is checked. It will help to prove the integrity of the system especially if there is no significant discrepancy between the inputs and the outputs. Both Raila and Uhuru shall have no recourse to resort to violent means to protect their assumptions. Kila mtu ataridhika!
This isn’t 100% perfect but allowing presidential election results to be challenged is a breather to the democratic process. It allows no excuse to any of the parties to engage its supporters in streets hence preserving peace and order post election.
Kenya has its challenges but her Constitution remains the best in East Africa if not in Africa. Tanzania is still in the process of writing a new Constitution I believe that somewhere we gonna come to our senses and produce the best Constitution for us and generations to come. Let’s make the process apolitical and focused to the National interest only, not interest of the parties or individuals at worst.
This is a tricky process it will require a leader who is eager to leave a lasting legacy of justice, fairness and a strong Republic behind. Not someone who is shortsighted and mindful of his/her personal short term goals or party interests but rather on overall national interest beyond partisanship.
President Magufuli has the mettle and energy to take this task on if he decides and I earnestly pray he does! I am so proud at least we had Nyerere who saw what the rest could not see in the 20% of the population who preferred political pluralism. So it is possible, it can be done! Let’s continue pushing for a new Constitution.
Mungu ibariki Tanzania
Mungu ibariki Africa
