UPDATE 22/6/15 – I couldn’t resist adding one more photo:

Judging by the set of photos below, CCM General Secretary, Abdulrahman Kinana, has been busy. Whether it’s a new health centre, school classroom or CCM office building, it looks like almost every construction project in the country has benefited from his handy-work.
Of course, the real construction work going on here is trying build an image, brick by brick, of a hard-working party, in touch with the “ordinary” wananchi. The audience is both local and online – see the ccm.or.tz t-shirts. And if more junior party figures – district secretaries, MPs, etc – get the idea that they too should get out there and lay a few bricks, so much the better.
