The campaigns for the October polls are starting in Tanzania. Nevertheless, don’t expect it to be free and fair. The Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) is ruling and they control all parts of government. There are no part of it they don’t toy around with.
The President is the almighty, the greatest ever and mightiest person to ever grace the Republic. He is so great, that you know he will with a huge margin in the up-coming elections. The opposition will either be charged, arrested and detained. They cannot do press conferences, campaign rallies and promote their parties without getting a positive nudge from the authorities. If they say anything, then its sedation, against some sort of statute and they get into legal jeopardy.
President John Magufuli has ensured this mess. He rules supreme. His the second alternative to God. His Excellency is majestic, a royalty of sort and the next in line for Kingdom Come. That’s why he is his grace, the one who no one will dare to question or stand up too.
The President are not allowing statistics published unless it got his blessing. He cannot let the radios, newspapers and such broadcast or publish without writing the things they are supposed too. If they don’t they get suspended or temporary closed.
Magufuli knows all of this. He would like to enjoy the title, the grandeur, but not accept the challenge of the role. The President cannot manage criticism, that’s why his critics are getting into trouble. Magufuli are only able to use the state to his advantage and make it disadvantage for everyone opposing him.
The CCM will win this. The candidates of Chadema and Act Wazelendo will not beat it. They might get some MPs and some representatives, but not anything substantial. The CCM will not give up its power and strength. These other parties will not have chance. Not like the President will give that up.
We can soon await the bracelets for Zitto Kabwe and Tundu Lissu. Just like there are several of other MPs, leaders and activists who will behind bars. That’s why the whole election and polls in October 2020 are just a charade. To make it seem like a democracy, but in reality that is just for play.
If the President believed in it. The President and CCM has decided to make it impossible for anyone else. Don’t expect anything … other than this. This is just the reality.
This election and polls is already fixed. The CCM will win and its only by a random amount of numbers.
Magufuli owns the game… he decides, he signs it off and will be victor. Peace.
