Speaking to journalists here yesterday, UKAWA interim leaders chaired by Prof Ibrahim Lipumba, assisted by Prof Abdallah Safari, James Mbatia and Engineer Pamela Maassy said while they were happy that the document was almost ready to steer the meeting, there were several challenges.
On his part, James Mbatia, the chairman of NCCR-Mageuzi, noted that most CA members seem to deviate from the national task and know they support party positions. He wondered why some people were restricting themselves to certain positions which look like organized or an agreed stand to be supported by all. "Right from the beginning, you can see that debate tends to take the same direction. It is like some people have formed strong positions to take, forgetting that we are here to serve the public interest," he cautioned.

Earlier, TCD's Chairperson James Mbatia introduced to the president various political parties that organised the meeting and expressed disappointment on noting that Opposition Chadema did not attend the meeting.
James Mbatia, the National Chairman of the NCCR-Mageuzi highlighted some of the deliberations which members came up with and requested the government to adopt them in their strategic plans for 'development of a sustainable peace.'
Some of the reform programmes were aimed at consolidating peace. They include education about peace to the public as well as to politicians, journalists, religious leaders, human rights activists, policy makers so as to build up a peaceful nation.
Mbatia said TCD has asked the government to consider promoting patriotism and strong commitment when it comes to the issue of maintaining peace and freedom.
He added that TCD should be empowered to have overall control of the educational institutions for enlightening youths and political leaders regarding the constitution and the laws governing the country.
He said empowering journalists makes them responsible enough while fulfilling their obligations according to their ethics and those journalists should be resourceful in disseminating information.

NCCR- Mageuzi Chairman James Mbatia said the claims by Mtwara residents were a result of the government failure to distribute the national resources equally.
Mbatia also warned that gas extraction in Mtwara will involve environmental degradation in the offshore and inland, saying there must be compensation in land subsidence following the effect.

Speaking to reporters yesterday, NCCR-Mageuzi Chairman James Mbatia said there were "clear divisions" among CA delegates, and warned that such divisions could ruin the whole process - unless checked. "There is no trust among members of the Assembly ... this is quite apparent in the way issues are being debated in the chamber ... if things do not change we will not get anywhere," he said. He said many of the CA delegates were "taking the deliberations for granted" and that others had forgotten that "a lot of public funds have been spent to bring them to Dodoma."

Set aside 30% of budget for education - Mbatia
NCCR-Mageuzi national chairman, James Mbatia
Recurring mass failures by Form Four candidates has prompted stakeholders to propose that government dedicate at least 30 percent of next year's national budget to the education sector.
The stakeholders are imploring the Members of Parliament to push the government to give priority to education in the budget, arguing that it is the single major move that will improve the sector.
The proposal comes barely a week after 2013 National Form Four examination results were announced, showing mass failures, again. In an interview with The Guardian yesterday in Dar es Salaam, the NCCR-Mageuzi national chairman, James Mbatia, described the results as 'pathetic and worse than last year's.'
He said despite the grade reform that was done last year in the hope of improving the passing average, whereby the number of grades was increased from 4 (A, B, C and D) to the present 7 (A, B, B+, C, D, E and F) the results have not changed for the better.
Mbatia, who is also a nominated legislator, said MPs should do their best to convince the government to allocate at least 30 percent of the national budget to the sector if education standards are to improve.
"Failure to improve education standards is like preparing half-baked future leaders who will end up leading the country to underdevelopment," he said noting: "There is no way to achieve economic development short of better education."
