Magufuli: Four reasons why CCM won in 42 wards

Chama cha Mapinduzi (CCM) National Chairman Dr John Magufuli has outlined four reasons why the ruling party emerged the winner in the just ended councillorship race.

Opening CCM’s 9th General Assembly in Dodoma, Monday morning, Dr Magufuli, who doubles as the President, said that the party won in 42 wards out of 43 in the by-elections of councilorship since it has strong support from its members. Another reason that led the CCM to scoop the wards, leaving one to opposition Chadema, according Dr Magufuli, is an experience of the ruling party in the country’s politics for 40 years.

“We are implementing practically want we have promised,” cited the CCM national chairman as he was mentioning reasons why the party won. The fourth reason is that CCM has unity and solidarity among members hence it was a strong factor why the oldest party continues winning in every election over other competitors, he added.

Meanwhile, the chairman asked members of CCM who were vying various posts to dissolve their camps and support the winners in a bid to make the party stronger and stronger. “Losers shouldn’t feel bad. They should try again.

But they should support the winners and dissolves their affiliation groups,” he added. Secretary General (SG) Abdulrahiman Kinana added that the party’s internal democracy is another secret weapon for the CCM to remain in its winning ways in various elections.
