VICE-CHAIRMAN of the Chama Cha Mapinduzi CCM, Mr Abdulrahaman Kinana has urged and reminded opposition parties’ politicians to respect the ongoing political reconciliation initiated by President Dr Samia Suluhu Hassan.
Mr Kinana argued that indecent language against the national leader must be avoided in order to continue with the opportunity of reconciliation aimed at collective building of the nation.
He made the statement in Tabora while addressing citizens, who turned out in large numbers during the conclusion of his visit in Dodoma, Manyara, Mara, Simiyu and Tabora regions.
His visit was meant to inspect the progress in the implementation of CCM’s Election Manifesto 2020-2025 as well as the party’s presence.
“We are not obstructing you from giving out your opinions, we are not stopping you to say what you want to say, but say it wisely in your argument,” he said.
“Stating that the President has sold the port, isn’t right, you just say that the contract is not good and argue on that basis to be understood. The other side then would reply why they think it is good,” he added.
Mr Kinana used the platform to explain the process of arriving to reconciliation, saying the way has given opportunity to politicians and ordinary citizens to air their views.
He reminded that the process began when President Samia invited National Chairman of the opposition CHADEMA, Freeman Mbowe, to the State House where they agreed to build unity and peace.
Thereafter, a team of 10 people was formed including five from CCM and the other from CHADEMA.
“I am saying this because I am the chairman on the side of CCM while my colleague Mr Mbowe leads the other side,” he said.
Since assuming office in March 2021, President Samia’s 4Rs philosophy of Reconciliation, Resiliency, Reforms, and Rebuilding, has acted as a necessary tool in addressing the contemporary issues affecting the country’s social, political, and economic systems.
With her 4Rs philosophy, Tanzania is creating a new platform in the political arena by embarking on productive politics and changes.
