Mbatia: Judiciary has no power over legislative proceedings Ukawa's Co- Chairperson, James Mbatia
Speaking to journalist here yesterday, Ukawa's Co- Chairperson James Mbatia shared his concerns that there are ongoing covert operations to subvert parliament from reviewing the documents.
Accompanied by Ukawa's Legal Adviser Tundu Lissu, Mkanyageni MP Habib Mnyaa (CUF) and several other members of the coalition in the Parliament, Mbatia said the CAG report has indicated that the Tegeta Escrow Account had tax payers' monies.
"It's clear that several government officials have been implicated in the report, however that shouldn't be a reason for the government to stop the debate," he said. "The parliament's role is to oversee the government and advice where possible...but, there are reports that the Chief Justice wrote a letter to parliament seeking to prevent the debate," he said.
"They want to postpone the debate on grounds that the matter is still with the court but the country statute maintains that the judiciary has no power to interfere with legislative proceedings," he clarified.
He said the coalition wants enough time to debate the matter and that all those implicated should be booked for legal proceedings and other political disciplinary actions. "We only want justice," Mbatia reassured stakeholders.
"We want parliamentarians to be given ample time to go through the reports as quickly as possible so that they can discuss the content with authenticity," he explained noting that a single day is not sufficient to debate the matter and so the remaining 'bunge' five days (next week) should be spared to debate the matter.
Commenting on the handover ceremony ..., 8 Oct 2014 [cached]
Commenting on the handover ceremony slated for today in the country's capital, Mbatia said his party together with other parties forming Ukawa have not been invited. As such, he said Ukawa is not aware of the content of today's ceremony and so it cannot comment on it. "Neither Ukawa nor my party (Chadema) has been invited so we don't know what is going on," he said in brief.
Speaking to The Guardian yesterday over a telephone interview, Ukawa Co- Chairman James Mbatia said the coalition 'trusts' in the resolution reached between TCD and President Kikwete.
Mbatia who is also the National Chairman for NCCR-Mageuzi went on to explain that the agreement reached between President Kikwete and TCD to halt the Constitution review process was due to the fact that Tanzania does not have a permanent voters' register to facilitate the referendum process.
Mbatia also revealed that Chadema together with other opposition parties forming Ukawa have not been invited to the handover ceremony today. "Neither Ukawa nor my party (Chadema) has been invited so we don't know what is going on," he said.

Along in the same lines, NCCR -Mageuzi chairman James Mbatia said that there are many problems with the education system including, books, curriculum, stakeholders and leadership. "To be sincere the policy which is said to be new it is out of date because it was surveyed for 2006 education requirements. The demands of 2006 are not the same as today's demands," he pointed out. Christowaja Mtinda (Special Seats-CHADEMA) said that education has been mixed with a lot of other matters compared to what was the case in previous years. "Earlier, the Tanzania Institute of Education (TIE) said the curricular was not involving teachers as the main stakeholders in curriculum development. Due to that teachers are not familiar with the curricula so what they normally do is to teach what they know," she said. "We need to have one textbook that will be used with all schools according to class levels......and others could be used as reference," she said.
On his part the TCD Chairman, ..., 13 Feb 2014 [cached]
On his part the TCD Chairman, Mr James Mbatia, called on all political parties to go into the discussions and drafting of the new constitution with one goal in mind - producing a document that will serve all regardless of political affiliations.
Mr Mbatia said there should be alternative plans for different issues so that deliberations reach amicable outcomes that will benefit the nation.
"We must have plan A, B and C so that if we do not agree on plan A, we move on to plan B and C. All political parties must go there with a common interest - to ensure that the nation drafts a new constitution that has the interest of the public at heart," he said.
Mr Mbatia quoted the holy books - the Quran and the Bible - to show verses that speak of unity and working together for a common goal.
