Leadership Effectiveness and Democratic Processes the Tanzania Experience: Are the Positive Outcomes Sustainable?
Dr. Faisal H. H. Issa

The paper logically describes Tanzania?s development efforts. It has been seen to champion and embrace change given different contexts. Development in Tanzania is seen to involve incremental steps mostly deter-mined by the action of top leadership, development partners and global trends. The actions of the incumbent government are seen to create immediate achievements made possible by leadership actions as well as the le-veraging on the significant capacity created overtime since independence in 1961. Some accepted logics are revisited and challenged, specifically on the efficacy of different efforts towards corruption and good gover-nance, implications to democracy and future sustainability of the milestones achievedin a short period of time. The importance of viewing and approaching development needs in a more holistic manner is unders-cored, whilst Tanzania once again experiments towards national development goals. Africa is also observed not yet to show true sustainable champions despite the different democratic ideals held. This is highlighted as a challenge to governments and international agencies.
