SECTION B (50 MARKS)

Answer all questions in this section

4. Read the following passage carefully and then answer the questions that follow.

The number of children who are loitering in cities and towns increases day after day. Their number has greatly increased nowadays. They are disadvantaged groups of children who are forced to live independently in the streets due to various social, political and economic problems. There are number of factors that lead to the situation of which one is the death of parents of guardians. Death of parents or guardians leads to the increase of orphans. The death of parents or guardians may be caused by car accidents, pandemic diseases such as HIV/AIDS and so forth. Due to the shortage of basic needs of life and parental care, the orphans move away from home soon after the death of their parents or guardians.

Single parent families or out of marriage bearing is another cause for loitering children. Some of these families are headed by too young and poor mothers. Due to their incapability to provide the basic needs of life to the family members, their children run away from home looking for better opportunities in other places.

Therefore, the loitering children in cities and towns are not only those whose parents or guardians died but also there are other children with parents who are roaming in town. The government needs to find the solution for this including finding the place for them to live and providing them with basic rights like quality education, safe living environment, good health and parental care.

makers in interpreting the constitution. This is why the judiciary must be independent from the executive and the legislature. For the same reason, the courts have the power

4. Read the following passage carefully and then answer the questions that follow. 

Representative democracy is a type of democracy whereby different groups in the community elect persons to represent them and give them full mandate to decide on their behalf in various organs of governance. In this regard, citizens see themselves as ruling through their representative. For example when a Member of Parliament participates in passing or rejecting a bill in Parliament, theoretically he is obliged to do so having in mind the interests of his constituency. This is why electing members of parliament or leaders is serious business.

In representative democracy systems, such as the one we have in Tanzania, once in a while all people who qualify may participate directly in making decisions on certain issues. For example, citizens participate directly, by voting, in electing their district councilors, members of Parliament and the President. In many countries, citizens who qualify may participate directly in making decisions over issues of great national importance. The commonly used method is the referendum. Examples of issues of great national importance include approving the national constitution, issues of union or federation with other nations and so on.

Questions

a)Suggest a suitable title for the passage.

b)What is a bill?

4. Read the following passage carefully and then answer the questions that follow:

A non-democratic government is a form of government that normally does not come into power by popular election. It is the government which gets into power without majority will and peoples legitimacy. In most cases, this government results from coup detat, manipulation of election process or changing a democratic government into dictatorship after a leader has attained power through elections. Adolf Hitler of Germany was an example of a person who led his country using dictatorship style. He had come to power through popular election eventually changed into a dictator thereafter.

In this kind of leadership only one person or a small group of people who are either economically powerful or with many supporters control the government. Also they are responsible for decision making in the society. A good example of a non-democratic government is totalitarian like that of Hitler or Mussolini of Italy. Other examples of authoritarian or dictatorship governments are like those of former Zaire under Mobutu Seseseko and Uganda under Idd Amini. The basic feature of non-democratic governments is the absence of democratic principles.
