Who's more hopeless?The Daily News which,upon realising their online opinion poll (on whether Dr Willbroad Slaa would emerge a winner in the coming election) was going contrary to their expectations,decided to withdraw it,or Raia Mwema which quoted the results of the removed polls?YOU DECIDE.


Leave Daily News out of that hopeless adventurism, please

EDITOR, 23rd September 2010 @ 01:55,
A vividly pro-Willibrod Slaa weekly tabloid has used our name in a shameful attempt to prop up the Chadema presidential candidate’s campaign, suggesting that he was being backed by three quarters of local internet surfers.
In its lead story on Tuesday, the September 22-28 edition of the tabloid deliberately misused an online poll involving a mere 161 visitors to purport that the whole nation was behind Slaa. While noting the tabloid editors’ virtual confession that they cannot be believed without quoting the Daily News, we abhor the unprofessional decision to use our name to lend credence to their wildly hopeless adventure.
The editors of the tabloid know that the figures they used are quoted out of context and are absolutely unrealistic. That is why they confess in the fabricated report that very few Tanzanians have access to the internet and that the purported poll results do not reflect
what will come out of the October 31 ballot.
So why would they venture out with old poll results today? Vicious anti-establishment fervor at best and malicious conspiracy to settle old scores at worst. That is typical activist journalism practiced by a section of the media, which has openly identified with the opposition and plays down any positive achievement of President Kikwete’s government while orchestrating purported failures, mostly made up ones.
The attempt to enlist the support of the Daily News was apparently meant to save another tabloid blushes after carrying an equally wild fabrication to the effect that Synovate had censored results of a poll showing Slaa leading president Kikwete by four points in popularity. The pollster has publicly derided the tabloid and lodged a complaint with the Media Council.
It is high time that section of the media learnt its lessons and returned to professional practice. We think there is nothing particularly wrong in covering presidential aspirants favourably, but the reports must at least be true. And the truth is that DrWillibrod Slaa will not be the fifth president of Tanzania.
The Chadema candidate has a lot of issues to settle, beginning at family level, from which he will need to practice leadership upwards. He will, indeed, garner some votes in October, just like Augustine Mrema in 1995, but that will be it, and the media behind the former priest can quote us on that.

WHY DID THEY REMOVE THE POLLS IN FIRST PLACE?AND WHY NOT RUN A FRESH ONE?WELL,JUST LIKE SYNOVATE AND REDET,THEY CERTAINLY KNOW WHAT THE POLL RESULTS WOULD BE,AND THAT MAKES THEM VERY,VERY SCARED.


WHY ON EARTH WOULD A STATE-OWNED PAPER ASSUME A ROLE OF A CLAIRVOYANT BY DECLARING OPENLY THAT DR SLAA WILL NOT BE THE 5th PRESIDENT OF TANZANIA?


THE ONLY VIABLE WAY TO SHAME AND PUNISH THE DAILY NEWS IS TO VOTE DR SLAA COME OCTOBER 31.YOU COULD ONLY SPECULATE HOW THE DAILY NEWS EDITOR AND HIS STAFF WOULD REACT TO DR SLAA'S VICTORY.APOLOGISE?HIDE THEIR FACES?ONLY TIME CAN TELL!


GO DR SLAA GO!

  3. Daily news like any other newspaper have the right to write...whether you will be happy or not...When other papers write positively against your Dr.SLAA nobody comments, when they write negatively against JK and his government, nobody comments also...but problem comes when daily news exercise their democratic rights to express their views...wao ni vibaraka wa serikali...Haifai jamani Chahali na wenzako...Yaacheni magazeti yaandike..wewe unao uhuru wa kusoma au kuacha kusoma lakini sio kuwasomea watanzania..We are all matured enough to read what is good and waht is not good...Recall "what is good for the goose is good for the gender also"
