Dhana na Maana ya Bunge Maalum la Katiba

Na Issa Shivji. Kwa sababu zisizoeleweka, katika mchakato wetu wa sasa, dhana na maana ya Bunge Maalum imepotoshwa sana na baadhi ya wasomi na wasemaji. Mheshimiwa Warioba katika hotuba yake aliyotoa katika mkutano wa Tanzania Centre for Democracy amejenga hoja kama ifutavyo.

Mlizingatia maoni ya nani, Jaji Warioba?

Na Mwl. Sabatho Nyamsenda. Sababu zilizotolewa na Warioba kwamba Muungano kwa sura yake ya sasa hauwezi kudumu pia hazina mashiko. Eti kwamba Zanzibar tayari imeshajitangaza kuwa ni nchi, na Wabara wanaionea wivu. Na hapa, Warioba anasema, kuna majawabu mawili: ama Zanzibar ibadili katiba au Tanganyika nayo ijitangazie uhuru kamili.

Ukimya wa wengi kuhusu muungano: Nini tafsiri yake?

Na Mwl. Sabatho Nyamsenda. Kwa hiyo swali la kujiuliza ni kuwa kama kweli muundo wa Muungano ndiyo kero kuu ya wananchi wetu, Bara na Visiwani, ilikuwaje watoa maoni wapatao 287,537 (sawa na asilimia 86.2 ya watoa maoni wote) hawakugusia kabisa suala la Muungano au muundo wake? Je, kwa nini sauti zitokanazo na ukimya wao zinapuuzwa?

Towards a new democratic politics

By Issa G. Shivji. Several weeks ago President Mwinyi said that the Government was intending to form a commission which would monitor the views of the people in the current debate on one-party vs. multi-party. However, he said, the Government would welcome any suggestion on a different method of concluding the debate. It is in the light of this invitation that I humbly offer my views.
