The African - - ZANZIBAR BEAT - BY STAFF RE­PORTER

ZANZ­IBAR govern­ment lead­ers have urged busi­ness­men to serve all peo­ple equally with­out dis­crim­i­na­tion based on their po­lit­i­cal af­fil­i­a­tions. The call was de­liv­ered to Com­mu­nity lead­ers (Sheha) in Pemba, in the wake of sev­eral in­ci­dents of sab­o­tage and de­struc­tion of pub­lic prop­er­ties. Also of late there have been boy­cotts of govern­ment or­ga­nized func­tions in the is­land of Pemba. Worse still, some mem­bers of the gen­eral pub­lic were in the front­line in mo­ti­vat­ing oth­ers to dis­obey or­ders and di­rec­tives is­sued by govern­ment lead­ers in their protest against the just ended gen­eral elec­tion re­sults in which Chama cha Mapin­duzi scoops all votes and won the elec­tions.

Ad­dress­ing a rally in Pemba re­cently, the Min­is­ter of State in the Sec­ond Vice Pres­i­dent’s of­fice, Mo­hamed Aboud Mo­hammed urged the peo­ple in the isle to aban­don their hos­til­i­ties and work as a team for na­tional de­vel­op­ment.

He im­plored the CCM lead­ers to work dili­gently and serve all peo­ple equally. The min­is­ter ex­pound­ing fur­ther, said the govern­ment un­der the lead­er­ship of Pres­i­dent Dr Ali Mo­hamed Shein was de­ter­mined to pro­mote peace and sta­bil­ity and en­cour­age peo­ple to work for their so­cio-eco­nomic sta­tus im­prove­ment as well as for na­tional growth de­vel­op­ment.
