0 Comments

The people of Mlangali, Ludewa District in Njombe Region, have recommended an adoption of a three-tier government as outlined in the new constitution draft, with a call on issues of national security and safety to be given a special consideration.


The citizens’ voice in Ludewa to discuss the new constitution draft was made possible through the Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) funding to Mlangali Health and Environmental Association, which organized a forum that brought together about 80 participants in the area.
In their recommendations, the citizens said that three-tier government will reduce all possible tensions in the Union and will pave way to a justifiable distribution of resources for the benefit of all Tanzanians.
However, the people in Ludewa have demanded the new constitution to reduce the President’s powers and instead the Parliament should be the one to assume the final role of appointing top leaders in the country’s civil service.
They also suggested the new Constitution to categorically provide more power and independence to the Leadership Ethics Commission. This will help in strengthening good governance and making public leaders respect the laws of the land.
 
“It has been said that for a long time now various government officials have been violating leadership ethics, leading to many issues of concern. According to the leadership code of ethics, those who fail to disclose their wealth should face disciplinary measures. This includes stern warnings, demotions or resignation,” said Imani Sanga.
She said public ethics secretariat would only remain powerless until it is enshrined in the new constitution, she said.
In promoting disability rights, the people in Ludewa forum wanted the new constitution to provide greater opportunity for people with disability to participate in all major decision organs.
Ward Executive Officer at Mlangali area, Mary Millinga, commended FCS for facilitating active citizens’ engagement in the discussion of the new draft constitution.
