Academicians hails Mengi for being a role model for business people
ACADEMICIANS and over 160 human rights activists who sensitizes on peace and protest against corruption in the world, have selected the Chairman of the IPP group who also doubles as Chairman of Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) Dr. Reginald Mengi for being a role model among business people in Africa continent. Dr. Mengi was selected after having used his success to serve unprivileged groups in the Tanzania community who includes people with albinism irrespective of their religion and tribal groups. Dr. Mengi has been mentioned by human activists yesterday in Arusha led by Professor Perel Machel from German who leads a group of academicians from USA, European, Israel, German Mexico, China and Poland who have visited 137 countries in Africa with the aim of sensitizing good governance, peace and protest against corruption and nepotism which has dominated in Africa continent. Prof. Machel has described Dr. Mengi as a most important person as he is a well known person in Europe and moreover has been mentioned by almost every country which they have visited for his dedication towards alleviating poverty among the poor, a factor which is rarely done by fewer rich people in the world. He said unlike Dr. Mengi, many rich people in the world are fond of being prejudiced and wants other people to worship them irrespective of the fact that most of them do hide their money in Switzerland while leaving the poor people unattended. The academicians are amazed by the high rate of corruption which has grown so high within the ruling CCM party in such a manner that some of them have shown hatred among themselves while others have fought other fellows the way the Deputy National Assembly Speaker Job Ndungai who recently knocked out his fellow contestant and later admitted at a hospital. They said that, this is a great shame to the ruling CCM party for an action has portrayed a clear picture that corruption is highly developed in the party, to the extent that it can cause the deterioration of the long standing peace situation which has been prevailing longer for the welfare of the country at large. At the occasion, Sister Dr. Abigaeli Azael from Israel who has ever lived in Tanzania in the past in 1965 has warned that the highly increased rate of corruption in the country is a shaming the father of the nation the late Mwalimu Julius Nyerere. She described the late father of the nation as the only leader in Africa who dedicated most of his life to fight against corruption to the extent that he compiled a book entitled “Corruption is an enemy of right”.
She certainly noted that, corruption malpractices have tarnished the good name of Tanzania. Dr. Azael has predicted that Tanzania will get a leader with white hairs who will work diligently to ensure that its people get a fair play in its natural resources, and has warmed that those who would dare snatch this golden chance of a new leader are likely to cause political crisis that will lead to the deaths of numerous people in the country. Prof. Machel from German has also warned that in order to get away from malpractices within the ruling CCM party, it was better to call on people from outside the party to screen contestants instead of leaving the job for themselves as corruption has washed their eyes by 100 percent. “I have been in Tanzania since May 2015 up to now and have walked all districts in Lindi, Mtwara, Ruvuma, Kilimanjaro, Kigoma, Mwanza, Arusha, Mbeya, Tabora, Shinyanga, Mara, Coast, Morogoro and Dodoma regions and has seen for himself how corruption has ravaged people’s life”. Prof. Machel has warned that the only way to stop corruption which has grown so high in the ruling party CCM is through deregistration of the party so that a cancer of corruption should never exist again. Dr. Barrack Gibeel from USA has mentioned corruption to be a source of love for leadership in the country, and it has also become a source of hatred for those who seeks leadership by force. He is however appealing to religious leaders in the country to condemn corruption in their preaching. In his speech, Dr. Gibeel has described Dr. Mengi as a light source of love in Africa for being the only African businessman who has set a day to stay with poor and eat with them in the same bowl. The Chairman of the Ethics committee on peace and human rights for all Christian religious denominations in the country, Bishop William Mwamalanga has described Dr. Mengi as a person who loves everybody regardless of their age, and that has been in the forefront to defend Tanzania in all aspects of human dignity The academicians have visited about 20 African countries whereby in their mission , have managed to meet religious leaders and human activists t6o see how they treat their people in whatever assistances required of them. The countries are Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania, Mozambique, DRC, Namibia, Ghana, Kenya, Zambia, Mali, Uganda, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Senegal, Angola, Egypt, Lesotho, Somalia, Gambia, and Rwanda.
