Tanzania: Be Ethical, Kinana Tells Party Leaders

Tabora — CHAMA Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) Secretary General, Abdulrahman Kinana has called upon his party leaders to avoid selfishness and embrace ethical leadership principles.

Addressing CCM members in Tabora on Saturday, Mr Kinana said some leaders are selfish, a tendency that makes the people lose confidence in the party. He added that such leaders use a lot of time to create unnecessary chaos, instead of solving problems that people face in their day to day lives.

"I have been following what some party cadres do, and I may conclude that such leaders waste a lot of time in discussing people, thus creating unnecessary chaos within the party. Such leaders fail to take into consideration the problems that people face," he noted.

Mr Kinana further said that some urgent meetings convened by his party ended up discussing some party leaders, instead of discussing public interest issues. "Within the party meetings in the past we used to discuss issues like health, education among others to develop our nation.

We have recently started calling for meetings to discipline leaders on issues created by selfish, greedy and jealous people," he said. He asked the CCM leaders to implement the party's manifesto that calls for the improvement of people's living conditions.

Mr Kinana arrived here yesterday for a special tour, ahead of his party's 36 anniversary celebration, that will be marked at national level next week. Mr Kinana and his entourage travelled by train from Dar es Salaam and stopped in Dodoma, Singida and Tabora to greet party members.
