Tume ya Mabadiliko ya Katiba Imeshindwa kwenda na wakati

Nicodemus Minde
Tupo kwenye zama za teknolojia na utandawazi. Mambo yote maisha ya mwanadamu siku hizi yanafanya kutumia ujumuiko wa watu wote duniani. Jumuiya ya dunia kwasasa inaletwa pamoja na mbinu za kisasa ambazo hujuisha mambo kama matumizi ya wavuti, mitandao ya kijamii, tarakilishi, barua pepe na kadhalika. Matumizi haya yamesaidia sana katika ukuzaji na ukuzwaji wa biashara, taasisi mbali mbali, mashirika yasio ya kiserakali, asasi za dini, taasisi za elimu, mashirika ya kijamii. Mashirika haya pamoja na asasi hizi zimetumia jukwaa hili la utandawazi kupanuka kibiashara, kitaasisi, kijamii na kadhalika. Upanuzi huu umesaidia makampuni haya na taasisi hizi kujiuza na kuhabarisha na kusambaza habari kuhusiana na taarifa zao, hoja zao na kadhalika.

Nimeshangazwa na tovuti ya tume ya mabadiliko ya katiba Tanzania kutofuata mkondo huu ilikusaidia kuhabarisha umma ya Tanzania pamoja na jamii nzima ya kimataifa kuhusiana na maendeleo yao katika mchakato mzima wa kukusanya maoni, taarifa za tume na mambo mengine yanayohusu tume hio.
 
Tovuti rasmi ya tume ya Mabadiliko ya Katiba ya Tanzania imeshindwa kutoa habari muhimu zinazohusu maoni ya vyama, maoni ya taasisi mbali mbali, maoni binafsi na hata wameshindwa kuwa na kipengele (link) ya habari zinazotokana na maoni ya katiba, taarifa zitokanzo na mchakato wa katiba na hata mienendo mbali mbali ya Katiba katika mataifa mbali mbali.

Rai yangu ni kwa tume hii. Taarifa ni kitu muhimu sana katika mchakato wa kuandaa katiba. Kuna haja kubwa kwa tume hii kuweka taarifa muhimu zitokanazo na maoni kuhusu katika. Nimefurahishwa na vipengele vilivyowekwa kwenye tovuti yao. Sheria kuhusu mabadiliko ya katiba imewekwa ndani, katiba ya sasa pia imewekwa ndani, pamoja na muundo wa tume hio inayoongozwa na Jaji Mkuu Mstaafu Joseph Warioba. 

Tovuti inapaswa kujumuisha madhalani maoni kuhusiana na muundo wa nchi, maoni kuhusiana na Muungano, sera mbali mbali za chama, mustakabali wa maendeleo ya mchakato huu. Misingi ya maendeleo ambalyo ndio chimbuko la mchakato huu wa mabadiliko ya katika inajumuisha azma ya upanuzi wa matumizi ya teknojia, upasishaji habari, kuleta watu pamoja na kadhalika.

Hii ndio rai yangu.

Speculating Magufuli’s absence at Uhuru Kenyatta’s Inauguration

29 November 2017 As I drove on the Thika Superhighway on the weekend before Uhuru Kenyatta’s inauguration on Tuesday, the road was decorated with flags of different countries. At the foot-bridge next to National Youth Service (NYS) Headquarters, the Tanzanian flag flew sublimely. Other flags including the Nairobi City Council flag decorated the Thika Superhighway that headed towards Kasarani, the venue of the inaguration. The Office of the Government Spokesman in Tanzania, had on 24 November issued a press statement saying that President John Magufuli would attend Mr. Kenyatta’s swearing in on 28 November. Days before Mr. Kenyatta’s inauguration, NASA leader Raila Odinga, a close friend to Mr. Magufuli flew to Zanzibar, where it is reported that the two met. Mr. Odinga’s trip to Zanzibar which came a few days after he jetted back to Nairobi from an overseas trip sparked debated and controversy. On the inauguration day, Tanzania’s State-House issued a press release saying that Vice Presi…

Comment: The Politics of Party Defection in Tanzania

Political party defection is a sign of unstable party democracy and/or jockeying for political positions. Defections happen from ruling party to the opposition and from the opposition to the ruling party. In African fledgling democracies, party defections are not about ideology or philosophic underpinnings. Party switching in many African states is largely driven by ethno-demographic and religious factors. These factors have also informed political party formation. Party switching is also a strategic political manoeuvring. Despite Tanzania boasting of national parties, political party strength is largely regional. We're now witnessing a surge in party defections from across the parties.
The defection of former PM Edward Lowassa from CCM to Chadema in 2015 was monumental, especially it coming just before a general election. The election season several high-profile defections. Defections from a dominant ruling party like CCM to the opposition is always huge. CCM's single party d…
