Kikwete: No rift in CCM

From The Citizen Daily, Dar es Salaam
By The Citizen Reporter

President Jakaya Kikwete has played down reports of wide rifts within the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi which he heads as its national chairman.

Addressing Mara CCM regional leaders in Musoma on Monday evening, President Kikwete said what was happening in the party was wrangling pitting two camps made by different Members of Parliament.

In the event held at regional commissioner's residence, President Kikwete said, however, that he was not happy with the MP's camps.

"There is no rift in CCM. Let me ask you, are you divided in Mara? Is there a rift in Mwanza? Or are there divisions in Tanga? Or have you heard that there are divisions in Singida? What is seen as division is portrayed by newspapers only and within Parliament," said President Kikwete.
