  6. That’s quite remarkable Mr. Zitto Kabwe. Now we understand why you are such a knowledgeable and intelligent politician. I wish the current President of the United Republic of Tanzania and all other politicians in Tanzania were like you. I can only compare you to Mwalimu Julius Nyerere and Benjamin Mkapa, who were both voracious readers of books as politicians. Just one comment, I don’t see Islam’s holy book, the Quran, among the 31 books you read in 2012…

  7. Big up ndo maana uchambuzi wako unakuwa na mashiko sio blabla.viongozi wengi wa siasa wanahubili bila uhalisia.Baba wa taifa alifanya hivyo ndo maana akawa maarufu na taalili zake zina minofu ambayo ni miongozo ya utawala uliopo madarakani.Hons Kabwe wenzio wanahubili tu na wanakuchukia kwa sababu usimamapo kila mtanzania anategemea kupata nasaa zako.Tz wanakupenda wakiondoa tofauti na Itikadi za kisiasa.Siasa sio ugomvi na upinzani si dhambi unacatalyse mipango ya ya chama tawala.Hon Kabwe wewe si mdadiaji wa hoja ila good analyst.Kwa umri wako twakuombea maisha marefu siku moja njozi zako zitatimia.Baniani mbaya kiatu chake dawa.epuka kuingia mtaani tii sheria bila shuruti.Kusoma vitabu kunaongeza upeo wa ubongo wa kufanya kazi
