Buhigwe — MEMBER of the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) Secretariat responsible for Foreign Affairs Dr Asha Rose Migiro has called for solidarity and commitment towards people's economic development.
She made the call here on Wednesday, while addressing a public rally on government's plans to improve economic activities that will eventually speed up community development in the new district. "Unity and commitment can generate development in our country," she said, adding that such efforts could supplement government's efforts in setting up economic growth.
The CCM cadre also called on government leaders to be close to the people, to enable overcome impediments that the communities face. Dr Migiro called on CCM leaders to implement the party's manifesto, ensuring that expected goals are achieved. "In our last NEC meeting, we resolved to build solidarity among CCM members. Our agenda is to bring development in the country.
CCM leaders, cadres should stand by the resolution to reach these targets" she noted. She reiterated the need for CCM leaders to stop using the party for personal gain and instead spend more time solving problems people face in their day to day lives. Buhigwe CCM members and other residents told Dr Migiro that some of the leaders are reluctant to visit them in their villages, where the support is needed to solve community problems.
"We are disappointed with our district leaders since they do not take their time to visit us," said Hassan Chuny, a party member and resident of Janda Village in Buhigwe district. Earlier, the members told Dr Migiro that poor infrastructure, electricity, water scarcity and lack of communication are among the problems encountered in the district.
Dr Migiro also assured the residents of CCM's commitment to solve problems. She mentioned renewal of the railway line service, airport development and Malagarasi Bridge as some of the government's efforts geared to solve their problems. Dr Migiro was on a two day special tour to inspect the development of government's projects in the country. She is here together with other NEC secretariat members and CCM Secretary General Mr Abdulrhaman Kinana to mark the 36th celebrations anniversary of the party. The celebrations will be held next Sunday.
