CCM, ACT- Wazalendo tout sustainable peace

ZANZIBAR: CHAMA Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) and the Alliance for Change and Transparency (ACT)-Wazalendo have called for Tanzanians to uphold peace, unity and political stability for the country’s development.

The two parties made the call through their two government leaders, Zanzibar First Vice-President Othman Masoud Othman and the Second Vice-President Hemed Suleiman Abdulla at the 3rd Annual Conference on the legacy of the late Zanzibar First Vice-President, Seif Sharif Hamad.

“As we remember Mr Hamad, we need to find out ways for ensuring sustainable peace and political stability as his legacy. We also need to work as a team in ensuring Zanzibar and Tanzania in general remain peaceful by observing the rule of law and human rights,” Othman said.

He said we are in an era where many young people struggle to acquire leadership positions such as being MPs without observing the required laws and regulations and they feel okay to cheat or use fraud to win, saying this must stop and we should build a culture of fair competition as stressed by the late Maalim Seif.

The first VP further said in his speech that “as a nation, we need to have a national framework on future politics and find proper answers as to what extent we have built a culture of rule of law in the country, democratic foundations, integrity and Transparency.

“To what extent have we built strong administrative institutions, public service, regulatory authorities, justice institutions, non-governmental institutions, media; and to what extent our political and administrative system build strong and sustainable foundations to fight corruption and abuse of power at all levels,” he said.

On his part, the Second VP, Mr Abdulla said there is a lot to learn from the late Mr Hamad and that the foundation has been doing its best to promote all the good things that he left behind, while Mr Mohamed Aboud Mohamed from CCM said “We should all keep praying for him because he contributed a lot for the development of the country.

Mr Ismail Jussa Ladu- the Acting CEO of the Foundation poured praise on President Samia Suluhu Hassan for remaining one of the main supporters of the conference since its inception in 2021.

Mr Stefan Schott, Director, Friedrich Naumann Foundation (FNF) of Germany said at the event also attended by ministers and other executives from mainland and Zanzibar that “We remain committed in supporting human rights and democracy in the country as among Maalim Seif legacies.”
