Again and again, the ones who dares to insult, insinuate or even insist on criticising His Excellency, they are all getting into trouble. That is why Union Day are more looking like a Military Parade, than a day of joy and happiness. President Joseph Pombe Magufuli has again ensured that someone is taken away or dispatched somewhere.
This time its his critic Mdude Nyagali or Mdude Chadema, whose been abducted by four gun-wielding men. Though we don’t know why his gotten kidnapped, but surely it is in connection with his outspoken and open criticism of the President. This seems like a targeted hit and at someone who has no trouble filling in the blanks.
Mdude has been missing now for over two days. He went first missing after the kidnapping on the 4th May 2019. Therefore, his location and his possible place of capture would be vital. As we don’t know what agency, whose behind it or who wants to be responsible for this assault on his liberty, freedom and even justice to a critical citizen.
We already know that Magufuli doesn’t have the ability or the character to grasp his role as a President. That Magufuli doesn’t have the capacity or knowledge to rule, he is a man who needs all the glory and all the praise, but never-ever, never-ever be questioned or criticised. The mighty, the Executive and the Head of State who only accepts worship, but not anything negative. That is why dudes, like Mdude gets into trouble.
We have seen this before and his the latest casualty of the fragile ego of the President. A hypocrite and a bastard of a man. Whose belittling mind cannot understand or hold the level of intelligence to fit the paradigm of society or civil society for that matter.
Mdude’s shadow will now hunt the Presidency, because the President is a shallow-minded individual. Who clearly needs to seek guidance, needs a lesson or two, maybe even some education. As it seems he never had any, if he did, he never got any in manners or as a leader. Since, he as a leader, never understood how to lead or guide the public. How the public discourse get discussed or how people tend to articulate their difference with a President. Alas, he just wants love and not hate.
Even if the actions of the President only shows hate and contempt of the human race, as he wants blind submission and not thinking individuals. Because, he wants the public in the image of himself. A non-thinking man with boundless powers. But if we followed a man like that, we would all run out of a cliff and never return back again alive.
That is why the shadow of Mdude will follow him. On every corner, at every parliamentary session, every time he touches a pen or even thinks. Mdude will shine back in the mirror and even scare him shitless when he whizz. That is the reality of Magufuli. Until the man is released and produced in a Court of Law. If the State can prove his guilt of a crime or even pin a criminal act on him. Because, right now his kidnapped and no-one knows where he is for the last 48 hours. Peace.
