Tanzania: President 4Rs Initiative in Top Gear

Top Gear — POLITICAL stakeholders have hailed President Samia Suluhu Hassan for consistency in walking her talk in the implementation of national agendas.

On Saturday the President instructed the Registrar of Political Parties Judge Francis Mutungi to summon a special meeting for the Political Parties Council to evaluate implementation of recommendations by the Task Force formed to assess political climate and multipartyism in the country.

Dr Samia issued the directives during a meeting held at the Chamwino State House in Dodoma with regard to the process of re-writing the new Constitution.

Commentators indicated that the move was a continuation of the revolution, which she had earlier initiated in the political arena including the formation of the Task Force among other initiatives.

A seasoned Political Scientist from the University of Dar es Salaam, Dr Richard Mbunda was of the view that the President has continued to demonstrate her true political will, which had attracted discussions in the past.

He expressed optimism that the discussion will demonstrate maturity in the entire process from the beginning onwards.

“I am optimistic that political parties’ stakeholders will come up with concrete proposals contrary to the fact that the process was going to cease,” said Dr Mbunda.

He, however, noted that the proposals should be in line with periodisation on how they hope the process should be moved.
