Dar es Salaam – President John Magufuli laid the foundation for building the Mwalimu Nyerere Leadership School in Kibaha yesterday.

During the function, President Magufuli, chairman of the CCM, said the school should consider offering education beyond politics.

The project is estimated to cost $ 45 million (about 100 billion Sh100) and is expected to be completed in 2020.

The project is funded by the Chinese Government through the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), CCM and five South African Liberation Parties, namely ANC (South Africa), Swapo (Namibia), MPLA (Angola), Zanu-PF (Zimbabwe) and Frelimo (Mozambique).

During the event, President Magufuli said that in addition to leadership and ideological studies, the secretaries-general of the six political parties should consider development issues.

"Let's see if we can expand the educational boundaries of the school through education through development and strategic studies," he said.

"We should not think of taking people from the six political parties alone, let's welcome other political parties with visions and ideologies that are similar to us."

Dr. Magufuli said the secretaries-general would be tasked with creating curricula, recruiting staff, and collecting donations that would be used to run the school.

He asked the contractor, the China Railway Construction Engineering Group, to complete the project on time or even ahead of schedule.

"There is no reason to delay the implementation of the project while there are resources available, and the contractor should also use Kibaha workers to allow residents to benefit from the project," he noted.

President Magufuli said that Tanzanians should seek employment opportunities during and after the project.

"The project has entered the region, which is at the forefront of the country's construction industry, and continues to build the industry to create jobs for our people," he said.

He praised the general secretaries for naming the school after the nation's deceased father, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, and said the decision was aimed at honoring the country's contribution to the liberation struggle.

Dr. Magufuli said that countries should now focus on economic liberation and add that the school will give new impetus to this effort.

According to him, most continental political parties had leaders who were unfamiliar with party ideologies. The school would deal with this anomaly, he added.

Swapo Secretary-General Sophia Shaningwa said on the occasion that it was time for countries sharing common ideals to come together and promote what the founding fathers of the nations advocated.

"We are here to consolidate our liberating history and to make the determination of our liberation fathers to transform our African countries sustainable," she said.

"Cooperation between China and Africa, especially with political parties that share great historical ties, is commendable to the sustainability of our nations and we will support this step."

Frelimo Secretary General Rock Silver said it was a special day announcing a new beginning.

"We believe this project will bear fruit and strengthen our relationships, and we will support this movement because it will help us to continue freeing our people from economic bondage," he said.

MPLA General Secretary Antonio Paul said the occasion was very important for the continuous liberation of people from both parties.

"The structure that we can all support today will be a pillar for our diplomatic relations and the Chinese Communist Party ( #CPC) has arrived at the right time, in which we need a transformation in the fundamental areas of our society, including poverty alleviation, "he said.
