Opinion: Qualitative Governance - Why JPM Has Been a Disappointment.

Here comes Dr Magufuli, who could at best be described as being lukewarm about constitutional democracy. KATIBA (constitution) is one thing that would have given a huge boost to Dr Magufuli's crackdown on corruption, unethical conduct in politics and civil service and laziness. But does his government see it this way? May be not!

Over the past month or so, Tanzania has been grappling with a shortage of sugar. Government and business accuse each other of creating the crisis, but many here believe it started with the decision of President John Magufuli who said the importation process was marked by corruption, the market flooded with poor quality or adulterated products and that the country had failed to protect local factories while importers grew rich. Some of the imported sugar is of inferior quality compared to our locally produced sugar and some poses health risks to consumers. ----

An ambitious project is well underway to establish more sugar plants in the country in the next four years to meet growing demand of the product in the country, Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa has said.

Tanzania is ousting Kenya as East Africa's powerhouse. Since John Magufuli's surprise election win last October, it seems Kenya could be losing its grip on East African politics as Tanzania increasingly presents itself as a viable alternative for regional cooperation. President Magufuli's pragmatic, hands-on approach is making this possible. "It is changing the way business can be done: in a more efficient and effective way. When it comes to stability, Kenya is struggling. Security has become a growing fear, not only for Kenyans but also investors. The country's border with Somalia makes it vulnerable to attacks from Somali terrorist group al-Shabab, making Tanzania an attractive alternative.
