HUNDREDS of residents are expected to show up in tomorrow’s ‘Patriotism and My Country First” alias ‘Uzalendo na Utaifa’ campaign to be held in Dodoma, Tanzania.
The campaign which is aiming at bringing back patriotism and nationalism spirit among Tanzanians is expected to be graced by President Dr. John Magufuli.
It also aims at resolving long standing challenges that the country has gone through, those being encountered today and those in the coming days.
“This campaign intends to bring back previous patriotism spirit which Tanzanians had in with respect to public properties, fear of corrupt practices, religious, ethnic, zonal and ideological divisions ,” the Information, Culture, Arts and Sports Minister, Dr Harrison Mwakyembe stated.
He said what the fifth phase government is trying to do is to revive the long time lost nationalism and patriotism spirits.
The minister wants Tanzanians to be royal and patriotic to their country by contributing in various development activities.
He reminded parents and guardians to spend more time with their children and teach them good manners for them to become productive citizens in the future.
People need to be ready to defend and protect the nation, if this nation is divided in pieces, we don’t have anywhere to run to, said the minister.
“We are responsible to defend and protect our Unity,” he stressed.
