Vice-Chairman of CCM (Tanzania Mainland), Mr Pius Msekwa

The National Vice Chairman of Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM), Pius Msekwa has decried moral decay within the party, insisting that party members have to change and employ commendable strategies to strengthen the party.

Speaking at the launching of by-election campaigns for Uzini constituency in Unguja on Friday, Msekwa said efforts to bolster the party should go hand-in-hand with restoration of the fundamental moral values.

“Self-discipline, honesty, integrity, responsibility and mutual respect are key elements in building the party,” Msekwa said at the political rally organized to campaign for the CCM parliamentary candidate for Uzini, Mr Mohamed Raza Hassanal.

Msekwa joined ranks with his Zanzibar counterpart, former president Amani Karume and the CCM Secretary General, Wilson Mukama to drum support for Raza against four other candidates running for the post. Others candidates are Ali Mbarouk Mshimba (CHADEMA), Khamis Khatib Vuai (TADEA), Salma Hussein Zarali (CUF), and Rashid Yussuf Mchenga (AFP).

The campaign period is scheduled to end on February 11, a day before election. Defending CCM’s candidacy, Mr Karume said CCM stood a better chance to fulfill its pledges as stipulated in the 2010 Election Manifesto, that includes improvement of the infrastructures, education, and better health services, adding, its realization would best be experienced through voting for Mr Raza.

Following death of the former legislator, Mussa Khamis Silima, Zanzibar Electoral Commission organized the by-election to be held on February 12, 2012.
