Secretary of the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) department of Ideology, Publicity and Training, Paul Makonda, has heaped praise on Musoma Rural Member of Parliament, Prof Sospeter Muhongo, for using his intellectual capacity to advise the government on crucial matters related to the country’s development.
Makonda said in Musoma yesterday that leaders of the Prof Muhongo type are badly needed to spearhead the country’s development in this supersonic age witnessing rapid technological changes in human history.
Prof Muhongo is a former cabinet minister and is considered the best performing legislator in the Lake Zone region surrounding the sprawling Lake Victoria.
Makonda lauded Prof Muhongo’s contribution as an intellectual when he had an audience with Musoma elders at the CCM regional office.
“I am heartened to see my old man Prof Muhongo. In Tanzania elders are a great treasure to the life of our nation,” he said.
