TATHMINI YA MWENENDO WA HALI UCHUMI

4.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, kutokana na juhudi za Serikali ya Awamu ya Tano inayoongozwa na Mheshimiwa Dkt. John Pombe Joseph Magufuli katika kuiandaa nchi kuelekea uchumi wa kipato cha kati, uchumi umeendelea kuimarika. Pato la Taifa  kwa kutumia mwaka wa kizio 2015 linaonesha kuwa katika robo ya tatu (Julai hadi Septemba) ya mwaka 2018, Pato la Taifa lilikua kwa wastani wa asilimia 6.8 ikilinganishwa na asilimia 5.0 kipindi kama hicho mwaka 2017. Shughuli za kiuchumi zilizokuwa kwa kasi kubwa ya ukuaji ni afya (asilimia 13.2), usafirishaji na uhifadhi mizigo (asilimia 12.4); Maji (asilimia 10.7); Ujenzi (asilimia 7.4); Habari na Mawasiliano (asilimia 7.3); viwanda (asilimia 7.3); na Biashara na Matengenezo (asilimia 7.3).

5.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, katika mwaka 2018, mwenendo wa mfumuko wa bei nchini uliendelea kuwa tulivu katika wigo wa tarakimu moja kutokana na kuimarika kwa hali ya upatikanaji wa chakula nchini na nchi jirani pamoja na usimamizi madhubuti wa sera za fedha na bajeti za Serikali. Mfumuko wa bei ulipungua kutoka wastani wa asilimia 4.0 Januari 2018, hadi kufikia asilimia 3.4 Juni 2018 na kuendelea kupungua zaidi hadi asilimia 3.0 Januari 2019.

6.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, katika kipindi cha mwaka unaoishia Januari 2019 thamani ya mauzo ya bidhaa na huduma nchi za nje ilikuwa dola za Marekani milioni 8,300.0 na thamani ya bidhaa na huduma zilizonunuliwa kutoka nje ilikuwa dola za Marekani milioni 10,462.6. Kwa upande wa nakisi ya urari wa biashara ya bidhaa, huduma na uhamisho wa mali nchi za nje ilikuwa dola za Marekani milioni 2,982.2 kutokana na kuongezeka kwa thamani ya bidhaa za mitaji zilizoagizwa kutoka nje ya nchi kwa ajili ya miradi mikubwa ya maendeleo. Kwa matokeo hayo akiba ya fedha za kigeni ni Dola za Marekani milioni 4,884.4 Januari 2019, kiasi kinachotosheleza kuagiza bidhaa na huduma kutoka nje ya nchi kwa kipindi cha takribani miezi 4.8. Kiwango hiki ni zaidi ya lengo la nchi wanachama wa Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki la miezi 4.5.

7.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, Ujazi wa fedha kwa tafsiri pana zaidi (M3) uliongezeka kwa wastani wa asilimia 6.6 katika mwaka 2018 ikilinganishwa na ongezeko la wastani wa asilimia 5.5 katika kipindi cha mwaka 2017. Mwenendo huo ulichangiwa na kuimarika kwa ukuaji wa mikopo kwa sekta binafsi kulikotokana na jitihada za Serikali kupitia Benki Kuu katika kuchochea ongezeko la mikopo kwa sekta binafsi. Riba za dhamana za muda mfupi za Serikali zilipungua hadi wastani wa asilimia 6.4 ikilinganishwa na wastani wa asilimia 11.1 mwaka 2017. Vile vile, riba za mikopo ya benki za biashara kwa sekta binafsi zimeendelea kupungua kutoka wastani wa asilimia 17.8 mwaka 2017 hadi wastani wa asilimia 17.4 mwaka 2018.

8.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, Mikopo kwa sekta binafsi iliendelea kuimarika kufuatia utekelezaji wa sera ya kuongeza ukwasi kwenye uchumi pamoja na jitihada zilizochukuliwa na Serikali kupitia Benki Kuu katika kuchochea ongezeko la mikopo kwa sekta binafsi. Kasi ya ukuaji wa mikopo kwa sekta binafsi imeendelea kuongezeka ambapo Januari 2019 ilikuwa asilimia 7.3 ikilinganishwa na asilimia 2.1 Januari 2018. Sehemu kubwa ya mikopo kwa sekta binafsi imeendelea kuelekezwa katika shughuli binafsi (asilimia 27.9 ya mikopo yote) ikifuatiwa na shughuli za biashara zilizopata asilimia 18.4, uzalishaji viwandani (asilimia 11.6) na kilimo (asilimia 7.8).

9.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, mwenendo wa thamani ya Shilingi dhidi ya Dola ya Marekani umeendelea kuwa tulivu ambapo katika mwaka 2018, Dola moja ya Marekani ilinunuliwa kwa wastani wa Shilingi 2,263.8. Hii ni kutokana na utekelezaji madhubuti wa sera za fedha, usimamizi thabiti wa mapato na matumizi ya Serikali, matumizi ya gesi asilia na umeme wa maji badala ya mafuta katika kuzalisha umeme na baadhi ya viwanda nchini kuzalisha bidhaa ambazo awali zilikua zikiagizwa kwa wingi kutoka nje.

10.       Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, Serikali ya Awamu ya Tano, itaendelea kutekeleza sera madhubuti za fedha na bajeti ili kuhakikisha uchumi wa nchi yetu unaendelea kuimarika.

Wanachama wa klabu ya wameazimia kwa pamoja kuchukua hatua za kisheria kwa watu wanaojaribu kukwamisha harakaati za uchaguzi wa klabu hiyo ambao mpaka sasa haujafanyika kwa sababu za mvutano na shirikisho la soka nchini TFF

Mratibu wa Matawi ya Yanga mkoa wa Dar es salaam Kaisi Edwin amesema viongozi wa juu wa tasisi zinazosimamia michezo nchini wameshindwa kutatua suala hilo kutokana na kutanguliza masirahi binafsi badala ya kutenda haki.


Katika hatua nyingine Edwin amelishushia lawama shirikisho la soka Tanzania TFF kwa kile alichodai ni kuididimiza klabu hiyo baada ya kupigwa faini ya Jumla ya Tsh: million 8 kwa kukiuka kanuni za ligi kuu Tanzania bara.

Yanga imekua katika changamoto kubwa ya kiuchumi na kiuomgozi kwa muda mrefu sasa tangu kujihuzuru kwa aliyekua mwenyekiti wa klabu hiyo Yusuf Manji katikati ya mwaka juzi, kutokana kukumbwa na changamoto za kiafya.


          VIFO VYA RUGE, KIBONDE FUNZO KUBWA      Cache   Translate Page      

DAR ES SALAAM: FUNZO kubwa! Ndiyo kauli iliyosikika ka­tika vinywa vya wengi, kuelezea vifo vya Mkurugenzi wa Vipindi na Uzalishaji wa Clouds Media Group, Ruge Mu­tahaba na Mtangazaji wa Clouds FM, Ephrahim Kibonde vilivyo­tokea ndani ya muda mfupi.  

Ruge alifariki dunia Februari 26, mwaka huu alipokuwa nchini Afrika Kusini kwa matibabu huku Kibonde akifariki alfajiri ya Machi 7, saa chache baada ya kumaliza zoezi la mazishi ya Ruge.

KWA NINI FUNZO?

Waombolezaji wengi waliozun­gumza na Ijumaa Wikienda, walieleza namna misiba hii ilivy­oacha fundisho kubwa kwa jamii katika vipindi tofauti. Kuna ambao walieleza namna ambavyo kifo cha Kibonde kime­gusa mamilioni ya Watanzania kutokana na jinsi alivyoongoza kama MC wa msiba wa Ruge kuanzia jijini Dar hadi Bukoba alikokwenda kupumzishwa Ruge katika makazi yake ya milele.

“Hii ni zaidi ya somo kwetu sisi tuliobaki. Kwa waliomuona Kibonde pale katika Viwanja vya Karimjee, hakuna hata mmoja aliyedhani kwamba naye anaweza kudondoka leo au kesho. Kila mtu alimuona Kibonde yupo safi na mwenye afya njema hata kusimamia shughuli nzito kama ile,” alisema msanii wa Bongo Movies, Kulwa Kikuba ‘Dude’.

MANENO YA KIBONDE

Mbali na kumuona tu Kibonde ni mzima wa afya siku hiyo, maneno aliyoyazungumza siku ya kuaga mwili wa Ruge katika viwanja hivyo, ndiyo yamekuwa chachu ya watu kujitafakari na kila mmoja kueleza jinsi ambavyo ameguswa na kujifunza sana katika vifo hivi.

“Kwa kweli yale maneno ya Kibonde aliyoyasema kwamba mtu unaweza kufa leo, kama si leo kesho na kama si kesho basi kesho kutwa yamekuwa zaidi ya somo kwangu. Kwa umri wangu huu na jinsi ninavyo­jifunza kila siku nafahamu kwamba kifo ni lazima lakini kwa yale maneno, nimeuona uhalisia wake.

“Kitendo cha yeye kusema kama si kesho basi ni kesho kutwa na kweli ameondoka, ile imetufanya hata sisi wasanii tujitafakari upya. Tunapaswa kumrudia Muumba wetu na kuishi katika misingi ya sala,” alisema muigizaji Blandina Chagula ‘Johari’.

KWA UPANDE WA RUGE

Kifo cha Kibonde kimeoneka­na kuibua upya kifo cha Ruge na kuwafanya watu wengi hususan mitandaoni wamkum­buke na kuyajadili yale mema ambayo aliyafanya akiwa hapa duniani na watu wengi kuy­abaini baada ya kuondoka.

Mmoja wa waombolezaji aliyejitambulihsa kwa jina la Juma Kihoi aliyekuwa msi­bani, nyumbani kwa wazazi wa Kibonde, Mbezi-Africana, alisema kifo cha Kibonde kimemfanya arudi nyuma kimazo na kumkumbuka Ruge na kuona hata yeye ndivyo anavyopaswa kuishi.

“Niwe mkweli nilikuwa sim­fuatilii sana Ruge lakini kuto­kana na historia na ukubwa wa msiba wake nilioushuhudia na jinsi shuhuda mbalimbali zilivyotolewa wakati wa kuaga, niligundua Ruge ametuachia somo kubwa sana.

“Ruge ametupa darasa la maisha kwamba hapa duniani sisi si kitu hivyo tunapaswa ku­fanya kila tuwezavyo kuhakiki­sha tunawatendea mema watu wanaotuzunguka. Ruge aligusa maisha ya mtu mmojammoja, hakuwa mchoyo. Aligawa mawazo na alikuwa tayari hata kukopa ili amsaidie mwenye shida.”

MANARA NAYE AGUSWA

Msemaji wa Klabu ya Simba, Haji Marana naye alionesha kuguswa na vifo hivi moja kwa moja na kuandika ujumbe kwenye ukurasa wake wa Insta­gram kwamba ameamua kuwa mtu wa kuswali.

“Mtanisamehe sana, maisha ya kibitozi yananitisha maana kifo hakiangalii wewe Msemaji wa Simba wala unajua sana kuimba! Kifo hakina hodi na hakijali account zako za benki na kina desturi ya kuzunguka. Now kipo Clouds, hujui kita­hamia wapi! Ahhh sasa hivi ni swala hadi malaika waseme yes,” aliandika Manara.

Mwili wa Kibonde ulizikwa juzi katika Makaburi ya Kinon­doni jijini Dar ambapo msiba huo ulihudhuriwa na umati mkubwa ulioongozwa na Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam, Paul Makonda pamoja na viongozi wengine wa Serikali akiwemo Waziri wa Maliasili na Utalii, Dk Hamisi Kingwangalla. Pia alikuwepo Rais mstaafu wa Awamu ya Nne, Dk Jakaya Kikwete na mkewe Salma.

MKEWE ALITANGULIA

Ikumbukwe pia, Kibonde ame­fariki siku 240 baada ya mkewe Sara kufariki Julai 10, mwaka jana.

WATOTO

Kibonde ameacha watoto watatu; Junior, Hilda na Illaria. Mungu ailaze roho yake mahali pema peponi-amina!

          WATANZANIA TUUNGANE KUMPIGA 'TAFU' KOCHA WA STARS AMUNIKE      Cache   Translate Page      
KOCHA wa Taifa Stars, Emmanuel Amunike wiki hii alitangaza kikosi cha wachezaji 25 ambao wataikabili Uganda. Tanzania inajiandaa kucheza mchezo wa mwisho wa kufuzu Mataifa ya Afrika dhidi ya Uganda Machi 24 mwaka huu jijini Dar es Salaam mechi ambayo ni muhimu na ya kihistoria.

Huo utakuwa ndiyo mchezo wa mwisho kwa Stars kupata nafasi ya kushiriki michuano ya Mataifa ya Afrika ambayo yatafanyika Misri. Hivyo Tanzania inatakiwa kupambana kwa bidii nakuweza kuona inaibuka na ushindi kwani tayari Uganda imefuzu Kuna jambo moja ambalo lilijitokeza baada ya kocha Amunike kutaja kikosi chake.

Mashabiki na wadau wengi walionekana kutofurahishwa na baadhi ya wachezaji wao kutokuwa kwenye kikosi hicho. 

Maoni yake kulingana na uelewa wake wa kiufundi lakini yote kwa yote tunapaswa kuelewa kwamba Kocha ndiye muamuzi wa mwisho na ndiye aliyepewa dhamana ya kuiongoza timu hiyo.

 Huu siyo muda wa kulumbana ni muda wa kuungana na kusapoti wachezaji wetu kuhakikisha kwamba timu yetu inafuzu kucheza michuano hiyo. 

Tukianza migawanyiko na kunyoosheana vidole kwa misingi ya ushabiki wa timu hii na ile au mchezaji huyu na yule hatuwezi kujenga wala kufanya kitu cha maana.

Ni vyema mawazo ya kocha yakaheshimiwa sababu yeye ndiye anafahamu kwanini kamuita mchezaji fulani na mwingine kamuacha na yeye ndiye mwalimu ambaye amekabidhiwa rungu hilo na ni nia yake kufuzu vilevile
ili kujenga heshima yake na kujitangaza kimataifa.

Kocha amekabidhiwa majukumu hayo na taifa hivyo aungwe mkono na asinyooshewe vidole katika kazi yake zaidi apewe sapoti kwa nguvu zote. Watanzania tunajua mna mapenzi na soka na mnatamani kuona timu yenu inashiriki Afcon lakini si kwa kupiga kelele na kumkosoa mwalimu zaidi inahitajika sapoti kwa mwalimu kuweza kufi ka mbali.

 Tunaamini kikosi ambacho ametaja kocha Amunike kitakuwa msaada kwa taifa na kitafanya vizuri kwenye mchezo na Uganda.

Kila mmoja anapaswa kuelewa kwamba tunahitaji ushindi kwa namna yoyote ile ili kufuzu na kwa aina ya timu Uganda waliyonayo tunahitaji mshikamano mkubwa sana ndani na nje ya uwanja.

 Uganda ina wachezaji wenye uzoefu na ambao wanaijua vilivyo Tanzania hivyo tusipokuwa na mshikamano na kuondoa tofauti zetu tunaweza kukwama na kujikuta tukifedheheka na kuendelea kushangilia timu za wengine kila mwaka.

Huu ni wakati wetu na tuna kila sababu ya kufuzu kwavile kundi letu liko wazi na mechi yenyewe ya kufuzu inachezewa uwanjani kwetu mbele ya mashabiki wetu, hatuna sababu yoyote ya kutofanya vizuri. 

Kila kitu kipo mikononi mwetu. Hivyo ni vizuri Watanzania wakaheshimu kile ambacho kinafanywa na kocha Amunike sababu nchi ni yetu taifa ni letu tuungane kwa pamoja kuisapoti Star.

Ombi lake kwa Simba

Moja ya makosa hayo ni Mwameja ameyataja ni kuruhusu mabao ya mapema kitu ambacho kinaweza kuwaathiri Simba mchezoni.

Amewataka pia kupunguza udhaifu katika nafasi ya ulinzi ili kuwabana Vita ambao ni wakamiajia wa kufunga halikadhalika kuepuka mipira ya kona.

"Mechi itakuwa ngumu japo kila timu inaweza kupata matokeo.

"Ni vema Simba wakaongeza umakini kwenye safu ya ulinzi ili kutoruhusu mabao ya mapema ambayo yanaweza kuwaharibia malengo yao kwenda hatua inayofuata.

"Na mechi hii ipo wazi kutokana na kila timu kutaka matokeo japo Simba wanhitaji zaidi kushinda."

LAKE BIWA – Giungendo ottavo nella Maratona di Lake Biwa, Yuki Kawauchi ha aggiunto altri importanti numeri alla sua “leggenda” del maratoneta con più maratone corse ad alti livelli. Ovvio, non siamo a livello delle prestazioni di keniani ed etiopi, ma il personaggio lo fanno le 10 o 11 maratone corse annualmente. L’ultima in ordine cronologico è stata corsa appunto nel fine settimana, dove Kawauchi ha aggiornato il suo score portandolo a 92 maratone corse. Risultato cronometrico peraltro davvero ottimo, visto l’ottava posizione conquistata in 2:09.21, suo miglior crono delle ultime due stagioni e delle ultime 22 gare. E’ la 13ª volta che corre sotto le 2:10, la 21ª sotto le 2:11 e l’87ª sotto le 2:20.

          U.S. Army captain, brothers, a law student, international aid workers among the 157 killed in an Ethiopian Airlines crash      Cache   Translate Page      

Katelyn Parra Photography(NEW YORK) --  Making the world a "better place" was how heartbroken family members remembers loved once who were among the 157 people aboard the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed just minutes after takeoff on Sunday morning.

No one survived the horrific crash that claimed the lives of a decorated U.S. Army captain, brothers on vacation, a law school student and dozens of international aid workers.

Thirty-five countries from all over the world lost citizens in the deadly incident — 32 Kenyans were the majority of lives lost.

At least eight U.S. citizens were among the victims. The U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia and the U.S. Department of State haven't released their identities, but ABC News has confirmed the names of four.

Antoine Lewis, 39, of Matteson, Illinois, was a U.S. Army captain stationed in Ottawa, Canada, who served in Afghanistan. He was on vacation in Ethiopia doing Christian missionary work, according to his parents. They said Lewis equally valued the country he fought for and the home of his ancestors.

"That’s what he died doing," his mother, Antoinette Lewis, told ABC Chicago station WLS-TV in a recent interview. "His passion was just to make a better world, make a better place, both here and our mother country."

Lewis leaves behind a wife and a 15-year-old son.

"I’m still in disbelief," his wife said in a statement obtained by ABC News. "I feel it's a dream [I'm still] awaiting his call to tell me he has safely touched down."

"Antoine was so loving," she added. "He was always interested in learning new things, forever on a journey becoming a better version of himself each day. He was so smart and just wanted to share his wealth of knowledge with those who’d listen."

Ike and Susan Riffel of Redding, California, lost their only children in the crash, Bennett and Melvin Riffel. The brothers were on vacation traveling to a few different countries as part of an adventure ahead of the birth of Melvin's first child, according to the family.

Melvin and his wife, Britney, were expecting a baby girl in May.

"We appreciate the outpouring of love and support from the community," a spokesperson for the Riffel family told ABC Redding affiliate KRCR in a statement. "We ask for continued prayers."

IQAir, a Switzerland-based company that specializes in improving indoor air quality, confirmed that one of its employees, Matt Vecere, was aboard the doomed flight. Vecere grew up in Sea Isle City, New Jersey, and later moved to California.

"Matt was an amazing writer, an avid surfer, and a truly selfless person," IQAir said in a statement. "He was most at home helping others, as evidenced by his dedication to the people of Haiti following the devastating earthquake in 2010."

"We will miss his laugh, his wit, his sense of humor, but most of all, the kinship and friendship that he brought to everything he did," the company added.

Ethiopian Airlines identified the pilot of the ill-fated plane as Yared Mulugeta Gatechew, who had more than 8,000 flight hours. The co-pilot was Ahmed Nur Mohammod Nur, who had over 200 flight hours.

The United Nations said at least 21 of its employees were among those killed in Sunday's crash.

The staffers hailed from around the globe and worked for various U.N. agencies, which regularly made trips to Kenya by way of Ethiopia to visit Africa's United Nations Office headquarters, located in Nairobi. Many were traveling to attend a five-day assembly of the United Nations Environment Programme.

The World Food Programme (WFP), the food-assistance branch of the United Nations, released the names of seven team members who died: Ekta Adhikari, 26, of Nepa; Maria Pilar Buzzetti, 30, of Italy; Virginia Chimenti, 26, of Italy; Harina Hafitz, 59, of Indonesia; Zhen-Zhen Huang, 46, of China; Michael Ryan, 39, of Ireland; and Djordje Vdovic, 53, of Serbia.

"As we mourn, let us reflect that each of these WFP colleagues were willing to travel and work far from their homes and loved ones to help make the world a better place to live," the WFP's Executive Director David Beasley said in a statement. "That was their calling, as it is for the rest of the WFP family."

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees named three colleagues who also died: Nadia Ali, 40, of Sudan; Jessica Hyba, 43, of Canada; and Jackson Musoni, 31, of Rwanda.

"We’ve been struck by sudden and terrible loss," U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, said in a statement. "We are doing everything we can to help Nadia’s, Jessica’s and Jackson’s families at this most difficult and painful time."

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) said it lost a program officer in the gender and safeguards unit, Victor Shangai Tsang, of Hong Kong, China.

"Victor took up this position with vigor and enthusiasm, striving to make our projects fully gender-sensitive," UNEP said in a statement. "His work defined him as an individual, and he, in turn, helped define our own work."

Victor leaves behind his pregnant wife and son.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations confirmed it lost fisheries officer Joanna Toole, who was "passionate about making the world a better place."

Another victim in Sunday's plane crash was Max Thabiso Edkins, a 35-year-old dual-national of Germany and South Africa. He worked as a communications officer for the World Bank's Connect4Climate program.

"We were devastated to learn that we lost a cherished colleague in the plane crash in Ethiopia," the World Bank Group's interim president, Kristalina Georgieva, said in a statement. "Max was deeply committed to the fight against climate change and brought tremendous creativity, energy and passion to his work. Our deepest sympathies go to his family and loved ones, and to those of the other victims of this tragedy."

Cedric Asiavugwa, a third-year law student at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C, was traveling to his native Kenya to attend the funeral of his fiance's mother, according to a press release from the school.

Born and raised in Mombasa, Kenya, Asiavugwa's work on social justice issues led him from his native country to Uganda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe, before coming to Georgetown University Law Center. The 32-year-old planned to return home to Kenya after graduating to continue serving refugees and other marginalized groups.

"With his passing, the Georgetown family has lost a stellar student, a great friend to many, and a dedicated champion for social justice across East Africa and the world," the law school said in a statement.

WASANII wa fani mbalimbali nchini wameamua kumsaidia kijana Hamisi Salum anayesumbuliwa na tatizo la kuvimba miguu kwa kumpeleka Hospitali ya Taifa Muhimbili ili apate matibabu kwani wanaamini atapona na kutimiza ndoto zake. 

Akizungumza jana Machi 12, 2019 kwa niaba ya wasanii wenzake, Msanii maarufu nchini Steve Nyerere amesema wanamatumaini makubwa Hamis atapona, kikubwa ni Watanzania kumuombea kwa Mungu. 

Amefafanua Hamis alishapelekwa nchini India kwa matibabu na kisha akarejea nyumbani Tanzania na baadae tena alipelekwa Muhimbili. 

Ameongeza wasanii katika kuhakikisha Hamis anapona na kutimiza ndoto zake wameamua kumfuata tena nyumbani kwao na kisha kumpeleka Hospitali ya Taifa Muhimbili akatibiwe. 

Steve Nyerere amesema baada ya wao kupaza sauti zao Rais Dk.John Magufuli amesikia na kwa kupitia Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam Paul Makonda wameamua kumsaidia. 

"Tunaishukuru Serikali ya Awamu ya Tano chini ya Rais Dk.John Magufuli kwa kujali wanyonge, wasanii tumepaza sauti zetu kuhakikisha Hamis anasaidiwa na Rais wetu amesikia na leo amepokelewa Muhimbili kwa ajili ya kupata matibabu.Pia tunamshukuru Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam kwa jitihada zake za kumsaidia Hamis,"amesema Steve Nyerere.

Na Kiyungi Moshy,Dar es Salaam.

Kama kuna mwanamuziki ambaye hawezi kusahaulika katika kumbukumbu za wapenda muziki, ni Dk. Remmy Ongalla.

Desemba 13, 2018 alitimiza miaka minane tangu afariki dunia usiku wa kuamkia Jumatatu Desemba 13, 2010 nyumbani kwake Sinza, jijini Dar es Salaam.

Ilikuwa ni siku ya majonzi kwa wapenzi wa muziki wa dansi hapa nchini, Afrika ya Mashariki na Ulimwenguni kwa ujumla baada ya kusikika kwa kifo chake.

Dk. Remmy aliwaacha wapenzi wake na wananchi kwa ujumla katika dimbwi la majonzi yasiyosahaulika kufuatia tungo za nyimbo zake zenye maudhui maridhawa.Nyimbo hizo hadi leo zinarindima katika vituo vingi vya redio hapa nchini hata nje ya mipaka yetu.

Yapo mambo kadhaa aliyoyafanya ambayo yanasababisha watu wengi kutokumsahau nguli huyu.

Dk. Remmy alikuwa wa kwanza kupata ujasiri wa kukemea ngono zembe, akatunga wimbo ‘Mambo kwa soksi’ Lakini jamii ikambeza kwamba wimbo huo haukuwa na maadili mema. Baadaye viongozi wa serikali, vyama na dini na wengine kwa ujumla walielewa nini alichokuwa akisema Dk. Remmy, wakaanza kuhubiri majukwaani tahadhari hiyo.

Alijipatia umaarufu katika jiji la Dar es Salaam hususan maeneo ya Sinza, kufuatia gari lake dogo ‘soloon’ ambalo popote lipitapo watu walilishangaa. Lilikiwa na maandishi nyuma ya gari hilo yakisema ‘ Baba yako analo’?

Dk. Remmy alizaliwa mwaka 1947 katika mkoa wa Kivu huko Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Kongo. Familia yake iliishi katika eneo lililoitwa Kindu eneo ambalo halikuwa mbali sana kutoka mpakani na Tanzania.
Yaelezwa kwamba mara alipozaliwa, wazazi wake walimuita majina ya Ramadhani Mtoro Ongala.

Baba yake alikuwa mwanamuziki mashuhuri pia alikuwa mpiga ngoma kwa kutumia mkono na pia mbira.Remmy akiwa bado mchanga familia ilihamia katika mji wa Kisangani huko Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Kongo (DRC).

Zipo habari kwamba kabla ya kuzaliwa kwake, mama yake alipata ujauzito mara mbili lakini kwa bahati mbaya kila alipojifungua, mtoto alifariki. Alipopata ujauzito mara ya tatu alienda kwa mganga wa kienyeji kumuomba ushauri afanye nini ili mtoto atakayezaliwa asiiage dunia pia.
Bila kusita mganga wa kienyeji akampa ushauri wake, akamwambia kwanza safari hii asiende kujifungulia hospitali bali akajifungulie maporini. Pia alipewa ushauri kwamba mtoto akishazaliwa asije akamkata nywele zake. Yote hayo yalitendeka.

Yasemekana Remmy alizaliwa akiwa tayari na meno mawili ya mbele, akaonekana kama mtoto wa ajabu.Kuzaliwa akiwa hivyo ikachukuliwa kama ishara ya baadaye kuja kuwa mganga wa kienyeji .

Ili kutimiza maelekezo ya mganga, Dk. Remmy hakuwahi kunyolewa nywele zake kwa miaka yote hadi alipokuja kuokoka akiwa hapa nchini Tanzania.

Mwenyewe aliwahi kusema kwamba mwanzoni alikuwa anajisikia aibu sana kwa kuwa na nywele ndefu namna ile. Lakini baadaye jina na taswira ya mfalme wa reggae ulimwenguni, hayati Bob Marley lilipopata umaarufu nchini Kongo, ndipo alipoupenda mtindo huo wa nywele kwani hata watu wengine pia walianza kuukubali na kuuonea fahari.

Baba yake ndiye aliyeanza kumfunza mambo ya muziki tangia akiwa mdogo kabisa. Jambo lililomfanya aamini kabisa kwamba kama jinsi ambavyo watu wengine wamezaliwa kuwa madaktari, wanasheria, waalimu, wakulima nk, yeye alizaliwa ili awe mwanamuziki.

Kwa bahati mbaya baba yake huyo alifariki dunia mwaka 1953, akamuacha Remmy akiwa na miaka sita.

Baadaye alianza shule ya msingi, lakini kutokana na ukosefu wa fedha na kwa sababu mama yake hakuweza kuendelea kumlipia karo za shule, Remmy ilibidi aache masomo shuleni hapo.

Ilipofika miaka ya 1960, Remmy tayari alikuwa ameshafuzu kupiga gitaa.

Mwaka mmoja baada ya kifo cha Baba yake mzazi, mwaka uliofuatia wa 1954, ulikuwa si mzuri tena kwa Remmy. Alkipata pigo la kufiwa na mama yake mzazi jambo ambalo lilimuacha na mzigo wa kuwalea wadogo zake kwani yeye sasa ndio alikuwa mkubwa katika familia licha ya umri wake mdogo.

Bila elimu na ujuzi mwingine wowote, alilazimika kuanza rasmi kujitafutia riziki kupitia muziki. Ujuzi wake wa kupiga gitaa uliongezeka kwa kasi ya ajabu kitu ambacho kilimuwezesha kutumbuiza kwa kupiga ngoma na gitaa katika hoteli na sehemu mbalimbali nchini ya Kongo, akiwa na kundi lake lilokuwa limesheheni vijana wenzake lililoitwa ‘Bantu Success’.

Kwa miongo kadhaa iliyofuatia Dk. Remmy Ongala alizunguka katika sehemu mbalimbali za Kongo akiambatana na bendi kadhaa maarufu za wakati huo nchini Kongo zikiwemo Success Muachana na ile ya Grand Mickey Jazz.

Japokuwa kwa ujumla Dk. Remmy alijifunza mwenyewe kupiga gitaa, lakini aliwahi kukiri kwamba muziki wa kutoka nchini Cuba ambao wakati huo ulikuwa unaanza kujipatia umaarufu barani Afrika, ulimsaidia katika kupata mitindo kipekee katika upigaji gitaa.

Kwa upande wa uimbaji anasema uimbaji wa Joseph Kabasele ‘Grand Kale’ na ule wa Franco Lwambo Makiadi ulimsaidia kupata mitindo yake ya uimbaji kama alivyozoeleka kusikia enzi za uhai wake.

Mwaka 1978 Remmy aliingia jijini Dar es Salaam baada ya kuitwa na mjomba wake mzee Kitenzogu Makassy ili aje ajiunge na bendi maarufu ya wakati huo ya Orchestra Makassy, iliyokuwa chini ya uongozi wa mjomba wake huyo.

Huo ukawa ndiyo mwanzo wa maisha ya Dk. Remmy nchini Tanzania. Akiwa na bendi ya Orchestra Makassy, alitunga wimbo wake wa kwanza uliojulikana kama ‘Siku ya Kufa’, wimbo ambao aliuandika kumkumbuka rafiki yake aliyefariki dunia. Wimbo huo pamoja na ule wa Athumani zilianza kumpatia umaarufu mkubwa na kujulikana kwa haraka hapa nchini.

Hata hivyo mzee Makassy baadaye aliamua kuihamishia bendi yake nchini Kenya. Kitendo hicho cha mjomba wake kilichomfanya Dk. Remmy kwenda kujiunga na bendi ya Matimila baada ya kudumu kwa katika bendi ya Orchestra Makassy kwa takriban miaka mitatu hivi.

Kujiunga kwa Remmy katika bendi ya Matimila, kulimuongezea umaarufu zaid katika anga za muziki nchini Tanzania wakati huo. Jina la bendi hiyo ya Matimila lilitokana na jina la kijiji kimoja kilichoko kusini mwa Tanzania.

Chini ya uongozi wake Dk. Remmy aliisuka upya bendi hiyo na kuibadilisha majina ikaitwa Orchestra Super Matimila.

Miaka iliyofuatia Watanzania walishuhudia umaarufu wa Remmy ukiongezeka kutokana na mashairi ya nyimbo zake ambayo yaliegemea katika kuzungumzia mambo halisi ya kijamii kama vile umasikini, afya, siasa , majanga ya Ukimwi nk.

Mafanikio ya Remmy na kundi lake zima la Orchestra Super Matimila hayakuishia nchini Tanzania kwani katika miaka ya mwishoni ya 1980 walianza kujipatia umaarufu nje ya mipaka ya Tanzania na Afrika hadi Ulaya.

Dk.Remmy Ongala aliwahi kusema kwamba kupata mialiko ya nje lilikuja kama mchezo tu. Kasseti yenye nyimbo zao ilichukuliwa na rafiki yake mmoja mzungu aliyekuwa akiondoka nchini Tanzania kurejea kwao Uingereza.

Rafiki yake huyo alipofika huko aliwapatia jamaa wa WOMAD (World of Music, Arts and Dance) Shirika linalopandisha chati wanamuziki na wasanii mbalimbali kutoka katika nchi za dunia ya tatu.

WOMAD walivutiwa na nyimbo zao, hivyo kuwapa mwaliko kushiriki katika maonyesho yao Barani Ulaya ya mwaka 1988.

Baada ya kurudi kutoka Ulaya bendi ya Super Matimila ilitoa album yenye jina la ‘Nalilia Mwana’ ikiwa na mkusanyiko wa nyimbo zao zilikuwemo nyimbo zilizopendwa sana kama vile ‘Ndumila Kuwili’ na ‘Mnyonge Hana Haki’

Mwaka 1989 Super Matimila walirudi tena Ulaya kufuatia mwaliko mwingine wa WOMAD. Ni wakati huo huo ambapo walipata nafasi ya kurekodi kwenye studio ya kisasa zaidi ya Stud Real World Studios, ambayo ilikuwa inamilikiwa na mwanamuziki maarufu aitwaye Peter Gabriel.

Dk. Remmy aliwahi kufafanua kuwa wimbo maarufu ya ‘Kipenda roho’ aliuimba mahsusi kwa ajili ya mkewe ambaye ni ‘mzungu’ Mwingereza ambaye wakati huo tayari walikuwa wameshazaa naye watoto watatu.

Mwaka 1990, Remmy na bendi yake ya Super Matimila walirejea tena katika studio za Real World ambako walirekodi album nyingine yenye nembo ya ‘Mambo’ .

Albam hiyo ilikuwa na nyimbo kama hiyo ya ‘Mambo’ ambayo aliimba kwa lugha ya kiingereza na kuweza kukidhi kiu ya wapenzi wake wasiojua Kiswahili. Zingine ni pamoja na ‘No money, no life’ na ‘One World’.

Umaarufu wake ulizidi kung’ara mwaka 1990 alipoachia wimbo wa ‘Mambo kwa soksi’ ingawa baadhi ya watu waliupinga kwa kusema kwamba haukuwa na maadili mema kwa jamii, ingawa kimsingi alikuwa anawaasa watu hususani vijana kutumia kondomu ili kuepukana na maambukizi ya ugonjwa wa ukimwi.

Akiwa Super Matimila Dk. Remmy alitoka na nyimbo nyingi zikiwemo za ‘Bibi wa mwenziyo’, ‘Kipenda roho’, ‘Asili ya muziki’ na ‘Ngalula’. Zingine ni pamoja na ‘Mwanza’, ‘Mama nalia’, ‘Harusi’, ‘Hamisa’, ‘Mnyonge hana haki’, ‘Ndumila kuwili’ na ‘Mataka yote’ ambazo zilimuongezea sifa kubwa Dk. Remmy kufuatia maudhui yaliyokuwa yakikidhi jamii.

Baadaye Dk. Remmy Ongala akaanza kusumbuliwa na maradhi ya Kisukari iliyompelekea kuamua kuachana na muziki wa dansi kwa madai ya kwamba umejaa mambo mengi ya kishetani.

Remmy akaokoka, akatubudu dhambi zake na akaanza kupiga muziki akimuimbia Bwana.Kabla ya kifo chake Dk. Remmy alitoa albamu yake ya Injili aliyooiita ‘Kwa Yesu kuna furaha’.

Kabla ya kifo chake, Remmy alikuwa katika hatua za mwisho za kukamilisha albamu yake ya pili, lakini mungu akampenda sana usiku wa kuamkia Jumatatu ya Desemba 13, 2010 nyumbani kwake Sinza.

Eneo hilo alilokuwa akiishi lilipewa jina la ‘Sinza kwa Remmy’ kabla ya kifo chake kufuatia umaarufu wake.

Mungu aiweke roho yake pahala pema peponi, Amina.

          LOVY ALIFUATA NYAYO ZA BABA YAKE VICKY LONGOMBA.      Cache   Translate Page      
Na: Moshy Kiyungi

Aliyekuwa mtunzi na mwimbaji maarufu Lovy Longomba, aliweza kuzifuata nyayo za uimbaji wa baba yake Vicky Longomba.

Baba yake huyo alikuwa mtunzi na mwimbaji wa kutegemewa katika bendi ya T.P.OK. Jazz, iliyokuwa ikiongozwa na Luambo Makiadi Lokanga La dju Pene Francois ‘Le Grand Mitre’.

Zipo familia zilizojaaliwa kuwa vipaji vya wacheza mpira wa miguu, nyavu, ngumi, na michezo mingine.

Mfano ni fimiliya ya wanadada wawili Wamarekani weusi, Serena na Vunus Williams, ambao ni mabingwa Kimataifa katika kucheza mpira wa Tennis.

Hapa nchini familia ya akina Uvuruge ilikuwa na watoto waliokuwa na vipaji vya kutunga nyimbo na kupiga muziki. Ndugu hao Jumanne, Stamili, Huluka na Maneno, walijijengea sifa tele katika muziki hapa nchini.

Familia ya akina Katwila, wapo akina Shabani, Adam na….

Aiha familia ya akina Kihwelu nayo ilikuwa ni ya vipaji vya kucheza mpira wa miguu, ambapo walikuwepo akina Mtwa, Jamhuri ‘Julo’ na ndugu zao wengine.Kwa upande wa ngumi, familia ya Matumla imerithisha kucheza mchezo wa ndondi takribani familiya nzima.

Katika makala hii ambayo inaizungumzia Familia ya Longomba, toka Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasi ya Kongo.Vicky Longomba ndiye aliye kuwa baba wa familia ya watoto wengi waliojaaliwa vipaji vingi vya muziki.

Huyo Mzee Vicky Longomba alikuwa mmoja kati ya wanamuziki waliokuwa waanzilishi wa bendi ya T.P.OK. Jazz iliyokuwa ikiongozwa na Franco Luanzo Makiadi.Ikumbukwe kwamba Vicky ndiye aliyekuwa mwanzilishi wa bendi ya Lovy du Zaire, iliyotamba katika muziki nchini Kongo mwaka 1971.

Kwa kuwa familia hiyo ina wanamuziki wengi leo katika makala hii nitamzungumzia mmoja wa watoto wake Lovy Longomba.Wasifu wa mwanamuziki huyo unaelezea kwamba alianza muziki katika bendi ya Orchestra Macchi mwaka 1976, akiwa na mwimbaji mwenzake Dindo Yogo.

Aidha walikishirikiana na mpiga gitaa Nseka Huit, baadaye waliondoka katika bendi ya Macchi, wakaenda kuunda bendi yao ya Etumba. Baadhi ya wanamuziki waliokuwepo kwenye kundi hilo ni waimbaji akina Lofanga, Gaby Yau-Yau na Mukolo, aliyekuwa akiimba sauti ya kwanza.

Wanamuziki wengine waliokuwepo katika bendi hiyo ni pamoja Ngwaka na Huit Kilos, ambaye baadaye alikwenda kuwa nyota katika bendi ya Afrisa International ya Tabu Ley Rochereau.

Mwanamziki Ricardo aliondoka na kwenda katika bendi ya Lemvo in Makina Loca, iliyo na makao yake huko Los Angeles, nchini Marekani.Yaelezwa kwamba Lovy Longomba alikuwa na vipaji vya utunzi, uiimbaji mahiri pamoja na unenguaji wakti mwingine.

Alikuwa kaka wa wanamuziki machachari Awilo Longomba, ambaye kabla ya kuanza kutunga na kuimba, alikuwa mcharazaji hodari wa drums katika bendi mbalimbali nchini humo.

Lovy naye pia alikuwa baba wa familiya yenye watoto wanamuziki akiwemo binti yake aliyerithi uimbaji, Elly Longomba na mapacha Christian na Lovy ambao wote ni nyota katika muziki wa Hip-hop, wakimiliki Kampuni ya ‘Longambas’ huko Nairobi, nchini Kenya.

Baadaye Agosti 1978, Lovy aliicha bendi ya Orchestra Macchi, na kuamua kuondoka Kinshasa.Alitiga katika jiji la Nairobi nchini Kenya ambako alijiunga katika bendi ya Les Kinois.

Kwa kuwa ‘Kiu’ chake hakichakidhiwa, Lovy alidumu kwa miezi mitatu pekee,akatimkia katika bendi ya Boma Liwanza.Lakini huko nako hakudumu kwa kipindi kirefu kwa kuwa baada ya miezi sita, alitimka na kuiacha Boma Liwanza.

Lovy akaenda kujiunga na bendi ya Super Mazembe iliyokuwa ikiongozwa na Mutonkole Longwa Didos.Akiwa katika bendi hiyo alionesha uhodari wa kutumia sauti yake ilivyokuwa nyembemba na nyororo, ambayo ndiyo iliyopelekea kwa yeye kupachikwa jina bandia la ‘Ya Mama’. Sababu kubwa ni kwamba alikuwa na uwezo wa kuimba sauti ya juu ambayo alipashwa aimbe wanamke.

Katika bendi Super Mazembe alikutana na wanamuziki wenzake mahiri akina Joseph Okello Songa, Kasongo wa Kanema, Musa Olokwiso Mandala na Fataki Lokassa ‘Masumbuko ya duniya’ aliyekuwa ametokea katika bendi ya Les Kinois.

Baadhi ya nyimbo alizoachia katika bendi hiyo ni pamoja na ‘Lovy’, ‘Yo Mabe’, ‘Ndeko’, ‘Nanga’, ‘Mokano’ na ‘Elena’.

Sauti yake nyororo mara nyingi husikika katika baadhi ya nyimbo za bendi hiyo, akibwagiza akitamka “Vuta sigara SM, maana yake Super Mazembe…”

Hata hivyo umahiri wa kutunga na kuimba katika bendi hiyo, ilisababisha kuhitajika takribani na kila bendi.

Kwa mara nyingine tena Lovy aliondoka Super Mazembe mwaka 1981 akaenda kuimba katika bendi ya Shika Shika, iliyokuwa ikiongoza na Jimmy Monimambo, kwa kipindi cha miaka miwili.

Ndoto zake za kumiliki bendi yake zilitimia baada ya yeye na wanamuziki wenzake alipounda bendi yake Super Lovy ikiwa na Nembo ya AIT.

Lakini kwa kile alichokieleza ni kuepuka mkanganyiko na mvutano aliamua kutumia jina Bana Likasi wakati aliporekodi katika Kampuni ya Audio Productions Ltd.

Mnamo mwaka 1988 Lovy aliingia Tanzania katika jiji la Dar es Salaam na akapigia katika bendi Orchestra Afriso Ngoma.

Maisha ya nguli huyo yalikatishwa ghafla katika ajali iliyopelekea kufariki dunia nchini Tanzania mwaka 1996.

Mungu aiweke roho yake pahala pema peponi, amina.

          Sodomy Laws in the US and around the World      Cache   Translate Page      
A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but are typically understood by courts to include any sexual act deemed to be "unnatural" or immoral. Sodomy typically includes anal sex, oral sex and bestiality. In practice, sodomy laws have rarely been enforced against heterosexual couples (Wikipedia)


Sodomy arrest sparks controversy… 34 years ago

Michael Hardwick is arrested for sodomy after a police officer observes him having sex with another man in his own bedroom in Georgia. Although the district attorney eventually dropped the charges, Hardwick decided to challenge the constitutionality of Georgia’s law.

“John and Mary Doe,” who joined in Hardwick’s suit against Michael Bowers, the attorney general of Georgia, maintained that the Georgia law “chilled and deterred” them from engaging in certain types of sex in their home. But in 1986, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Bowers v. Hardwick, ruling by a 5-4 vote that states could continue to treat certain types of consensual sex as criminal acts.

Apparently, Justice Byron White had characterized the issue not as the right to privacy in one’s own bedroom, but rather as the right to commit sodomy. Viewed in this narrow manner, it was no surprise that he was unable to find such a clause in the Constitution. Justice Lewis Powell, who also voted to uphold the law, later called his vote a mistake.

In June 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Texas law under which two men had been arrested for having consensual sex at home. The 6-3 Lawrence v. Texas decision reversed the infamous 1986 Bowers decision and finally dealt a death blow to sodomy laws throughout the country.

In its landmark ruling Lawrence v. Texas, the Supreme Court ruled that anti-sodomy laws —sometimes referred to as “crimes against nature” laws — are unconstitutional. But 12 states continue to keep such laws on their books. Of 14 states that had anti-sodomy laws, only Montana and Virginia have repealed theirs since the Supreme Court ruling, while anti-sodomy laws remain on the books in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.



You may believe anti-sodomy laws are not harmful because they can’t be enforced. But they are an important symbol of homophobia for those who oppose LGBT rights. What’s more, the laws create ambiguity for police officers, who may not be aware they are unconstitutional.

If a policeman looks it up, he will see that sodomy is a violation of Louisiana state law, for example, according to Marjorie Esman, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana.

Sodomy Laws around the World

In the recent years, sodomy related laws have been repealed or judicially struck down in all of Europe, North America, and South America, except for Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

There have never been Western-style sodomy related laws in the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, or Vietnam. Additionally, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia were part of the French colony of 'Indochine'; so if there had been any laws against male homosexual acts in those countries, they would have been dismantled by French colonial authorities, since male homosexual acts have been legal in France and throughout the French Empire since the issuing of the aforementioned French Revolutionary penal code in 1791.

This trend among Western nations has not been followed in all other regions of the world (Africa, some parts of Asia, Oceania and even western countries in the Caribbean Islands), where sodomy often remains a serious crime. For example, male homosexual acts, at least in theory, can result in life imprisonment in Barbados and Guyana.

In Africa, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Mauritania, Sudan, and some parts of Nigeria and Somalia. Male and sometimes female homosexual acts are minor to major criminal offences in many other African countries; for example, life imprisonment is a prospective penalty in Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda. A notable exception is South Africa, where same-sex marriage is legal.

In Asia, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen; but anti-sodomy laws have been repealed in Israel (which recognizes but does not perform same-sex marriages), Japan, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, and Thailand. Additionally, life imprisonment is the formal penalty for male homosexual acts in Bangladesh, the Maldives, Myanmar, Pakistan, and Qatar.

What is it?
ONEforONE is a sustainable company from the Netherlands. They sell water bottles, health insurances and green energy on a ONEforONE basis, by that they mean when you buy one you'll be also giving one. for example when buying a health insurance your not only buying a insurance for yourself but your also buying one to an orphan in need in Tanzania.
ONEforONE tries to combine our social impact with economic and environmental sustainability.
by using materials that can be recycled or reused for their water bottles, by selling these bottles the make a small profit which they use to help building water pomps in Malawi but also helps to cover the salaries and rent.

Why is it cool and why does this have future potential?
ONEforONE is a company that not only thinks on how to make profit now, but also helps to create a better world for our future children. people planet profit. that's of course of of the main reasons we can consider this a cool company. Many other companies think most of the time just how they can make profit and benefit their own wallets, for ONEforONE this is not the case, they are not only helping people to have drink water, but their also helping someone to get better medical help and also ways to create green energy so that we don't need to polute our planet by doing this different ways.
One of the reasons why this company has future potential is because their not only thinking for now, but also how they can save the planet for our future people. For the last couple of years we see more and more companies that are thinking about sustainability in allot of different ways and thats one of the reasons these companies have more chance to succeed.

          VIFO VYA WANAHABARI, CHANZO CHATAJWA      Cache   Translate Page      

MSIBA mbichi ni wa mwanahabari nguli nchini, Ephraim Samson Kibonde (47) ambaye alifariki dunia ghafla Machi 7, mwaka huu na kuongeza orodha ya vifo vya wanatasnia hiyo vilivyoacha mshtuko na maswali mengi juu ya vyanzo vyake.  

Akiwa kwenye mazishi ya bosi wake ambaye ni Mkurugenzi wa Vipindi na Uzalishaji wa Clouds Media Group, Ruge Mutahaba (49), kampuni anayofanyia kazi Kibonde akiwa mwenye afya njema, ghafla aliwaambia wafanyakazi wenzake waliokuwa karibu yake pale kaburini: “Ninajisikia vibaya.”

Kauli hiyo ya Kibonde ndiyo ilikuwa mwanzo wa safari yake ya kurudi mavumbini alikotokea na kwamba hata madaktari walipojitahidi kumundolea hali ya kujisikia vibaya, haikuwezekana. Wanahabari wengine walioanza safari kwa “kujisikia vibaya” ni Sarah Dumba ambaye alikuwa Mkuu wa Wilaya ya Njombe na Elizabeth Mayemba wa Gazeti la Majira.

Mwingine ambaye kifo chake kilishtua wengi ni Glory Mziray, Meneja Mawasiliano wa Wakala wa Huduma za Misitu (TFS), ambaye baada ya kumaliza taarifa yake mbele ya wanahabari wenzake, alisema: “Ninajisikia vibaya” na muda mfupi baadaye aliripotiwa kupoteza maisha.

Aina hii ya vifo vya “Ninajisikia vibaya” imekuwa msalaba mzito kwa wanahabari wengi kiasi cha kujiuliza nini chanzo cha yote na hatua zipi za kuchukua ili tasnia iepukane na vifo vya aina hiyo miongoni mwa wanahabari.

DAKTARI AFUNGUKA

Daktari maarufu nchini Godfrey Chale hivi karibuni alipoulizwa na mwandishi wa habari hii chanzo cha vifo vya ghafla na kutolewa mfano wa mtangazaji wa Redio DW ya Ujerumani ambaye ni Mtanzania, Isaack Muyenjwa Gamba aliyefariki dunia ghafla usingizini alisema: “Kwanza niwatoe hofu wanahabari kuhusu matukio ya vifo vya ghafla, hili si jambo linalowakuta wao peke yao, ni la watu wote.

“Maana nimesikia mengi tangu Kibonde afariki dunia, waandishi wengine wamekuwa na hofu kwamba huenda kuna hujuma za kisayansi. “Lakini ukweli mambo yanayochangia vifo vya ghafla yako mengi, mfano ulaji vyakula usiofaa, unene kupita kiasi, kutokufanya mazoezi, magonjwa ya moyo na kisukari.

“Matatizo katika mishipa ya damu, ulevi kupindukia, uvutaji wa sigara mambo haya yote yanachangia vifo vya ghafla.” Aliongeza kuwa ili watu waepukane na matatizo ya aina hiyo wanatakiwa kufuatilia maendeleo ya afya zao na kuchukua hatua za ushauri watakazopewa na wataalam wa afya.

Akizungumza hivi karibuni, daktari bingwa wa magonjwa ya moyo wa Taasisi ya Tiba ya Moyo ya Jakaya Kikwete (JKCI), Dk Pedro Pallangyo, alisema tatizo la mishipa kuziba na kuleta madhara makubwa kwa mgonjwa linazidi kuongezeka hasa katika nchi zinazoendelea.

“Mshipa wa damu ukiziba husababisha mtu kupata mshtuko wa moyo na inapotokea hali hiyo mtu akiwa usingizini, hufariki dunia,” alisema. Alisema zipo sababu hatarishi nyingi zinazochangia kuziba kwa mishipa ya damu, ikiwamo ulaji wa vyakula vyenye mafuta mengi, unywaji pombe kupita kiasi, uvutaji sigara, uzito mkubwa na kutokufanya mazoezi.

Dk Pallangyo alisema kiwango cha mafuta kikiwa kikubwa katika damu kuliko inavyotakiwa, huenda kuziba mishipa ya damu na kwamba athari huanza kuonekana mtu anapofikisha umri wa miaka 40 hadi 45. “Lakini kadiri miaka inavyokwenda mbele, tatizo linazidi kujitokeza zaidi katika kundi la vijana, hapa JKCI kwa siku tunachunguza kati ya watu watatu hadi watano kujua kama wana tatizo hili.

“Kwa wiki tunaona wagonjwa wapatao 35 ambao ukikadiria kwa mwezi ni kati ya wagonjwa 140. Mwaka 2015/16 tuliwachunguza takriban watu 400 katika mtambo wetu maalum wa ‘Cath Lab’,” alisema. Daktari huyo alisema asilimia 45 kati ya watu hao waliochunguzwa afya zao, walikutwa mishipa yao imeziba hivyo kuhitaji kufanyiwa upasuaji.



WENGINE WAONYWA

Aidha, Dk Chale aliwatahadharisha waandishi wengine kuwa makini na afya zao kwa sababu taifa linawategemea katika kuleta mageuzi ya kiuchumi.

“Pamoja na kwamba vifo vinapangwa na Mungu, lakini sisi kama binadamu tunayo nafasi kubwa ya kuamua kuhusu afya ya miili yetu. “Mtu kama unakunywa pombe kupita kiasi halafu huli chakula kizuri au unavuta sigara ni wazi kwamba unajiweka kwenye hatari ya kufa mapema na wakati mwingine ghafla, tofauti na mtu anayeepukana na tabia hatarishi za kiafya.



“Nenda kwenye nchi za wenzetu, mfano Japani, watu wako makini sana na suala la afya ndiyo maana kwao kuwa na mtu mwenye miaka 100 na siyo ishu, lakini hapa kwetu miaka 60 umekuwa mlima mrefu wa watu kupanda.

          RAUNDI HII YA PILI KWA WANAWAKE TUTAONA MENGI      Cache   Translate Page      

MZUNGUKO wa pili wa Ligi Kuu ya Wanawake Tanzania Bara inayodhaminiwa na Bia ya Serengeti Lite, umeanza wikiendi iliyopita.

Katika mechi za Jumamosi na Jumapili, matokeo yalikuwa hivi; Yanga Princes 3-2 Sisterz, Marsh Queens 2-2 Baobab, Mlandizi Queens 4-0 Mapinduzi Queens, Simba Queens 4-0 Tanzanite Queens na JKT Queens 5-0 Evergreen Queens.


Kuendelea kwa mzunguko wa pili, kumekuja baada ya mzunguko wa kwanza kumalizika Februari 3, mwaka huu ambapo JKT Queens ilimalizika mzunguko huo ikiwa kinara kwa kujikusanyia pointi 33, baada ya kushinda michezo yote 11.


Katika mzunguko huo, tulishuhudia rekodi kadhaa zikiwekwa, ikiwemo ya JKT Queens kuibamiza Evergreen Queens mabao 16-0, huku mshambuliaji wa JKT Queens, Fatuma Mustapha akifunga mabao 15 kwenye mechi tatu pekee.

Katika mechi hizo tatu ambazo Fatuma alifunga jumla ya mabao 15, kila mechi moja alifunga mabao matano. Ikumbukwe kuwa Fatuma ndiye aliyekuwa kinara wa mabao kwenye ligi hiyo kwa msimu uliopita alipomaliza akiwa na mabao 18.

Championi Jumatano limekuandalia baadhi ya rekodi zilizowekwa toka kuanza kwa ligi hiyo, huku ikiangazia nafasi ya ubingwa na timu ambazo zipo kwenye uwezekano wa kushuka daraja.

JKT QUEENS BADO WABABE JKT

Queens inayotumia Uwanja wa Meja Jenerali Isamuhyo, ndiyo bingwa mtetezi wa ligi hiyo, ambapo msimu uliopita iliutwaa bila ya kupoteza mchezo wowote. Kwa hali ilivyo, kuna uwezekano wakarudia kile walichokifanya msimu uliopita, kwani hadi hivi sasa wameshacheza michezo 12 na hawajadondosha alama yoyote. Wapo kileleni na pointi 36. Inayofuatia ni Mlandizi Queens ambayo imevuna pointi 26, ikiwa imeshuka dimbani mara 12. Imezidiwa pointi 10 na kinara.

VITA YA UFUNGAJI IMENOGA

Fatuma Mustapha na Asha Rashidi ‘Mwalala’ ambao wote wanaitumikia JKT Queens, wamejikuta wakiingia kwenye vita ya kuwania Tuzo ya Mfungaji Bora msimu huu ambapo kwa sasa wamepishana bao moja.

Fatuma amefunga mabao 23, huku Mwalala akishika nafasi ya pili akiwa amefunga mabao 22. Ukiwaondoa hao, wachezaji wengine wenye mabao mengi ni Donesia Minja mwenye 14 na Stumai Abdallah mwenye 13. Hawa wote wanacheza JKT Queens.

YANGA PRINCES YAPATA MATUMAINI

Ushindi wa mabao 3-2 dhidi ya Sisterz wikiendi iliyopita, umeiweka pazuri timu hiyo mara baada ya kuwa na mwanzo mbovu wa ligi katika mzunguko wa kwanza.

Vipigo vya mabao 7-0 kutoka kwa Simba Queens, kisha 8-1 kutoka kwa JKT Queens, vilianza kuivuruga timu hiyo na kuiweka pabaya kwenye msimamo wa ligi hiyo hadi mashabiki wakaanza kuhisi huenda timu hiyo ikashuka daraja.

Kwa sasa Yanga Princes wamejihakikishia usalama wa kubaki ligi kuu, ikiwa watafanikiwa kushinda michezo miwili inayofuata, ambayo itawafanya wavune pointi 22, ambapo kwa sasa wapo nafasi ya saba na pointi zao 16. SIMBA

QUEENS WAPO VIZURI

Wapo nafasi ya tatu wakiwa imevuna pointi 25, kwenye michezo 12 waliyocheza. Katika michezo hiyo, wamepoteza mitatu pekee na kutoka sare mchezo mmoja. Wameibuka na ushindi mara nane Wameanza vyema raundi ya pili kwa kuvuna ushindi wa mabao 4-0 dhidi ya Tanzanite, wanaonekana kuimarika kadiri siku zinavyokwenda, huku wakitamba na viungo wao wawili raia wa Burundi, Asha Djafar na Joelle Bukuru, ambao wamekuwa msaada mkubwa kwa timu hiyo.

HAWA WANAWEZA KUSHUKA DARAJA

Hali siyo mzuri kwa Evergreen Queens na Mapinduzi Queens, ambao hadi sasa wapo nafasi mbili za chini. Mapinduzi wamevuna pointi mbili pekee kwenye michezo 12 waliyocheza, huku Evergreen wenyewe wana pointi tano, wakicheza michezo 12.

Wamerudi wakiwa na hali ileile ya mzunguko wa kwanza, ambapo mechi zao za kwanza mzunguko wa pili wamejikuta wakila vichapo. Evergreen wamefungwa 5-0 na JKT Queens, huku Mapinduzi wakilambwa 4-0 na Mapinduzi Queens.Endapo hawatabadilika kwenye michezo 10 iliyobaki, yawezekana kabisa wakashindwa kubaki ligi kuu na wakarudi zao Ligi Daraja la Kwanza.

          WAWILI KIZIMBANI KWA TUHUMA ZA KUKUTWA NA MENO YA TEMBO      Cache   Translate Page      
Na Karama Kenyunko, Globu ya Jamii.
Wakazi wawili wa Chanika jijini Dar es Salaam, Abdallah Hamis (30) na Adam Kawambwa(35)  wamefikishwa katika Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Kisutu wakikabiliwa na tuhuma za kukutwa na meno ya tembo yenye thamani ya zaidi Sh  bil.moja na utakatishaji.

Akisoma hati ya mashtaka, mbele ya Hakimu Mkazi, Augustine Rwizile Wakili wa serikali Candid Nasua amedai, washtakiwa wametenda makosa yao Februari 11.2019 huko Chanika kwa Zoo katika Wilaya ya Temeke jijini Dar es Salaam. Imedaiwa siku ya tukio washtakiwa walikutwa na vipande 47 vya meno ya tembo vyenye thamani ya USD 465,000 ambayo ni sawa na Sh. 1,081,375,500 mali ya Jamuhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania bila ya kuwa na kibali kutoka kwa mkurugenzi wa wanyama pori.

Katika shtaka la pili imedaiwa Siku na mahali hapo, washtakiwa hao walikutwa na vipande hivyo vya meno ya Tembo huku huku wakijua kuwa wamepata vipande hivyo kutokana na kutenda kosa la ujangili. Hata hivyo, washtakiwa hawakuruhusiwa kujibu kitu chochote mahakamani hapo  kwa sababu Mahakama ya Kisutu haina mamlaka ya kusikiliza kesi za uhujumu uchumi ambazo kwa kawaida zinasikilizwa Mahakama Kuu au mpaka pale itakapopata kibali kutoka kwa DPP.

Kwa mujibu wa upande wa mashtaka, upelelezi katika kesi hiyo bado haujakamilika na imeahirishwa hadi Machi 25,2019 itakapokuja kwa ajili ya kutajwa.

          MAHAKAMA YA RUFANI TANZANIA YASIKILIZA MASHAURI MANANE YA MAHAKAMA KUU YA MBEYA KUPITIA VIDEO CONFERENCE      Cache   Translate Page      
Na Karama Kenyunko, Globu ya Jamii.

 Mahakama ya Rufani Tanzania,   Machi 12, 2019  imesikiliza mashauri manane ya Mahakama Kuu Kanda ya Mbeya kwa kupitia mfumo wa video conference.

Rufaa hizo zimesikilizwa kwa mara ya kwanza kwa njia hiyo katika Kituo cha Mafunzo kilichopo Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Kisutu, Dar es Salaam na Mahakama ya Mbeya.,   

Rufaa zilizosikilizwa ni za mkoa mbeya na Rukwa ambapo miongoni mwa rufaa hizo ni ya Venance Kazuri dhidi ya Eldard Sospeter  pamoja na Agness Sanga dhidi ya Among Halinga na Peter Haonga ambazo zimesikilizwa mbele ya Jaji Jacobs Mwambegele.

Pia rufaa namba 38/2018 ya aliyekuwa Askari polisi namba F 5842 DC, Maduhu dhidi ya jamhuri na  namba 1/2019 ya Charles Kalunga na wenzake dhidi ya Mkurugenzi wa Mashitaka nchini (DPP) mbele ya Jaji Rehema Mkuye.

Rufaa nyingine ni pamoja na rufaa namba 3/2018 ya Festo Sodi dhidi ya Ihombe Village Council na kesi namba 100/2018 ya Osward Mruma dhidi ya Mbeya City na rufaa namba 2/2018 ya Ismail Shaban dhidi ya Jamhuri zilizosikilizwa mbele ya Jaji Sivangirwa Mwangesi.

Pamoja na rufaa ya Faman Investment (T) Ltd dhidi ya Dk Anthony Nsonjo na wenzake iliyosikilizwa mbele ya Jaji Gerald Ndika.

Akizungumza  baada ya  usikilizwaji wa mashauri hayo, Naibu Msajili wa Mahakama ya Rufani, Elizabeth Mkwizu amesema, usikilizwaji was mashauri kwa njia ya video conference inapunguza gharama na kwamba inalenga utoaji wa haki kwa wakati.

Amesema, garama inayotumika kuendesha video conference ni Sh 140,000 kwa siku ambayo ni tofauti na majaji kusafiri na watumishi wao kwenda Mbeya kwa ajili ya kusikiliza mashauri hayo.

Ameongeza kuwa faida kubwa ya mfumo huu husaidia kupunguza gharama kwani ili majaji waweze kwenda Mbeya kusikiliza mashauri inawapasa kulipia gharama kubwa za malazi yao pamoja na watumishi wao wanaoongozana nao lakini mfumo huo unatumia Sh 70,000 kwa Kisutu na 70,000 kwa Mbeya ili kukamilisha usikilizwaji huo.

Mkwizu amesisitiza kuwa mashauri yote ya Mbeya na Sumbawanga walitakiwa wafuatwe lakini kwa mfumo huo wanatimiza malengo ya mahakama ya utoaji wa haji kwa wote na kwa wakati.

Moja ya rufaa iliyosikilizwa ni ya Sanga ambaye yupo Mbeya na hakuwa na Wakili kupitia video conference aliiomba mahakama (Jaji ambaye alikuwa Kisutu) kumuongezea muda wa kufungua ili kukata rufaa dhidi ya Halinga na Haonga ambao wanadaiwa kuuza nyumba ya urithi.

Sanga amedai sababu ya kuongezewa muda ni baada ya Mahakama Kuu Kanda hiyo kumkatalia kuomba kesi kusikilizwa nje ya muda. Amedai, alicheleweshewa kupewa nakala ya hukumu ambayo ilitoka Julai 14, 2017 na kupata nakala hizo Agosti 4, 2017 hivyo alichelewa kufungua kesi.

"Kila mtu anatakiwa aridhike na kile alichokitafuta kwa juhudi zake na isiliwe na mtu mwingine hivyo, naomba nipatiwe haki hiyo," alidai Sanga.

Hata hivyo, wadaiwa hao waliiomba mahakama kutupilia mbali maombi hayo kwa sababu katika hati ya kiapo mdai hakueleza sababu ya kuchelewa kukata rufaa kuwa ni kucheleweshewa hukumu lakini alichoeleza ni kwamba alikuwa mgonjwa.

"Tunaomba mahakama itupilie mbali maombi haya kwa sababu mdai ni muongo kwani alichoeleza kwenye hati ya kiapo ni tofauti na anachoeleza," walidai.

Action for Swifts is supporting a project to enable a talented young Tanzanian, Yusuph Emmanuel, to travel to the International Swift Conference in Tel Aviv in March.

AfS has agreed to enable UK people to make contributions via its Paypal link and bank account.
[Update - this appeal is now closed - we raised £575 - so Yusuph goes to Tel Aviv - THANK YOU! 

Martine has put a report of Yusuph's visit to Tel Aviv on her blog - use Google Translate to read it in English]


All monies received by AfS will be forwarded to the project.

Other methods of making payments (cheques and bank transfer) to AfS are described herePlease provide a clear reference to "Project Yusuph" with any payment.

For payments outside the UK, please contact Martine


Martine Wauters, whose initiative this is, describes the rationale behind this idea:

I'm contacting you with a call for financial support for an amazing Swift supporter from the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) in Tanzania, to whom I would like to give the opportunity of participating in the next International Swift Conference in Tel Aviv.

As some of you may know, Dr Jane Goodall has been supporting my transcontinental Swift projects for years. In 2017, she asked her Tanzanian director to contact me in order to support my “Swifts Without Frontiers” initiative. Last July, I had the honour of making an "inspirational talk" to international "youth leaders" of her Roots & Shoots (R&S) network (a very successful worldwide youth programme), during a yearly summit in Windsor.

One of those 10 delegates, selected out of over 100,000 R&S groups, was Yusuph Emanuel, a 33 year-old Tanzanian from Kigoma. Yusuph had been a very dedicated R&S volunteer since 2000. Since his graduation from the Shinyanga Teachers College in 2013, he has been volunteering for the JGI in Kigoma, in various projects such as planting trees in schools, providing environmental education, raising awareness and love of animals and pursuing other community development activities.

After my presentation, Yusuph was immediately eager to support Swift conservation. Since his return to Tanzania last August, he has been leading an impressive awareness-raising campaign, talking with passion to over 2,500 students, and leading field study expeditions.

Swifts killed by villagers in the region of Kigoma
© Yusuph Emmanuel (R&S Tanzania)
During that field work, he's been finding out about regular cases of massive killing of various species of Swifts and Swallows, that have been traditionally eaten by the local population. He has not only been documenting and reporting this to me, but he's also been fighting with diplomacy and dedication to try and find a sustainable solution.

By helping him to go to Tel Aviv, you would not only allow him to learn a lot during the conference, but also to meet potential partners for future Swift and Swallow conservation in Tanzania. He could also participate with me in some school activities near Tel Aviv, and to be JGI's ambassador at the Swift Welcoming Ceremony, where he would represent R&S partner groups from Belgium, Spain, Scotland and South Africa (a.o.) who have all been participating in my Swifts without Frontiers projects.

He would be the first ever representative from sub Saharan Africa to participate in such a conference, which could open promising perspectives for Swift conservation in the area where those birds spend 9 months of the year, with no or very little conservation measures.

The aim of Swifts Without Frontiers is to help to support such initiatives and transcontinental partnerships in order to know and protect Swifts better throughout their range. As an active member of a world-wide programme dedicated to animal and environment protection, as well as to education and peace promotion, I’m convinced that Yusuph deserves massive support from the “Northern Swift Community”.

You can help by donating funds to cover his accommodation and travel expenses (or « frequent flier miles » if you have some from Air France).  We are still working out costs, but they are likely to be of the order of £1000.

Should there be any funds left over after paying for Yusuph’s trip to Tel Aviv they will be reserved for projects to support Swift and Swallow protection in Tanzania. A nation-wide campaign is being prepared by JGI Tanzania, with the help of Swifts Without Frontiers and the Dar Es Salam University.

You can find more pictures of Yusuph and his activities on my blog:

It seems this site is pretty well-dominated with information regarding gay life in W. Africa. Perhaps, we can start more dialogue on similar topics in E. Africa. I lived in Tanzania when I was young and returned there for work just after university. Now, I am back in the US after completing my graduate degrees, but continue to work in E. Africa. I know Uganda is a very bleak scene nowadays for gays and lesbians. But, there is a growing advocacy for gay and lesbians especially in the capital. There are opportunities to meet gay men in some locales (ie. Matteo's after 10pm on Fri/Sat) in Kampala now especially near Makerere University (ie. T Cozy bar on Sunday nights). I will be happy to share a few experiences with others interested and who hopefully can share some as well.

NA MWAMVUA MWINYI, PWANI 

WANANCHI zaidi ya 200 mkoani Pwani,wanadai kutapeliwa fedha milioni 185 ,kwa ajili ya kupatiwa viwanja na kujengewa nyumba kwa gharama nafuu kupitia kampuni ya Vicoba group union Tanzania (VIGUTA). 

Aidha Chamwino huko Dodoma wanadai kuidai kampuni hiyo milioni 61 huku wakikosa kupatiwa nyumba walizolipia kujengewa kwa gharama nafuu.

Aliyekuwa meneja wa Viguta mkoani Pwani,Iddi Kanyalu alikiri kuwepo kwa tetesi hizo na kudai taarifa hizo tayari amezifikisha kwenye vyombo vya sheria ili kufanya uchunguzi na sheria kufuata mkondo wake. 

Alisema,ni kweli walikuwa wananchi wanalipia viwanja kwa bei nafuu na nyumba walikuwa wakilipia kwa asilimia 25 mfano ukitaka kujengewa nyumba ya milioni 25 unalipia milioni 7.5 ambapo wengi walishalipia asilimia 25 na wengine fedha zote kisha kuingizwa mkenge. 

Kanyalu alieleza, utapeli huo umegusa watu ambao wameuziwa viwanja hewa na nyumba ambazo hawajakabidhiwa hadi sasa. 

"Wamenisababishia doa, kwanza mimi ni diwani wa kata ya Kongowe, kutokana na aibu hii na mimi kutohusika, nimeshachukua hatua ya kulifikisha suala hili polisi ili kuchukua hatua zaidi "alifafanua Kanyalu. 

Alipoulizwa kuwa kwanini asigutuke toka alipopewa kazi hiyo hadi kufikia hatua ya kuleta kero na ubabaishaji kwa jamii, Kanyalu alijitetea kuwa kama utapeli ulikuwa wa kimataifa hadi kufikia hatua ya kujitangaza kwa wabunge na kuingia mkataba na baadhi ya taasisi za kifedha hivyo haikuwa rahisi kwake kutambua ubabaishaji huo. 

Baadhi ya wananchi wa Kibaha akiwemo Aidan Mndewa na Kisaken ,walibainisha, kutokana na kudai fedha zao kutokana na kutopatiwa viwanja wala nyumba wanaiomba serikali ifuatilie kampuni hiyo na kuwasaidia kurejeshewa fedha zao. 

Wakati huo huo, msimamizi wa VIGUTA Chamwino huko Dodoma, Hilda Kadunda, ambae pia ni diwani viti maalum alisema wananchi walioingia katika mpango huo Dodoma wanadai milioni 300 na Chamwino wanadaiwa milioni 61 ambapo wapo watu waliouziwa viwanja mara mbili mbili. 

"Ninasimamia Chamwino pia kuna wakati nilikuwa katika mkoa wa Dodoma, mkurugenzi Christina na Mwenyekiti Salmin Dauda wao ndio watia saini lakini tukidaiwa wakipigiwa simu wanazima ama kudai hawapo wanashughulikia masuala mengine "

Kamanda wa polisi mkoani Pwani, ACP Wankyo Nyigesa alipoulizwa juu ya tuhuma hizo kama wahusika akiwemo Mkurugenzi wa VIGUTA Christina Rwebangila na mwenye kampuni hiyo Salmin Dauda kama hatua zozote zimeshachukuliwa kufuatia malalamiko hayo, amedai hajapata taarifa hizo. 

Wankyo alielezea, atafuatilia kwa watendaji wake ili kujua kama wamepata taarifa hizo ili waweze kufanya uchunguzi na kuchukua hatua .

WASANII wa fani mbalimbali nchini wameamua kumsaidia kijana Hamisi Salum anayesumbuliwa na tatizo la kuvimba miguu kwa kumpeleka Hospitali ya Taifa Muhimbili ili apate matibabu kwani wanaamini atapona na kutimiza ndoto zake. 

Akizungumza jana Machi 12, 2019 kwa niaba ya wasanii wenzake, Msanii maarufu nchini Steve Nyerere amesema wanamatumaini makubwa Hamis atapona, kikubwa ni Watanzania kumuombea kwa Mungu. 

Amefafanua Hamis alishapelekwa nchini India kwa matibabu na kisha akarejea nyumbani Tanzania na baadae tena alipelekwa Muhimbili. 

Ameongeza wasanii katika kuhakikisha Hamis anapona na kutimiza ndoto zake wameamua kumfuata tena nyumbani kwao na kisha kumpeleka Hospitali ya Taifa Muhimbili akatibiwe. 

Steve Nyerere amesema baada ya wao kupaza sauti zao Rais Dk.John Magufuli amesikia na kwa kupitia Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam Paul Makonda wameamua kumsaidia. 

"Tunaishukuru Serikali ya Awamu ya Tano chini ya Rais Dk.John Magufuli kwa kujali wanyonge, wasanii tumepaza sauti zetu kuhakikisha Hamis anasaidiwa na Rais wetu amesikia na leo amepokelewa Muhimbili kwa ajili ya kupata matibabu.Pia tunamshukuru Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam kwa jitihada zake za kumsaidia Hamis,"amesema Steve Nyerere. 

Amesisitiza kuna kila sababu ya kumsaidia Hamis kwani bado anayo matumaini na vijana wenzake wakiwamo wao wasanii wamejikusanya kumsaidia. 

Kuhusu gharama ya matibabu,Steve Nyerere amesema bado hajafahamu gharama halisi itakayotumika katika matibabu ya kijana huyo lakini wanachoamini nafasi ya kupona ipo, hivyo kikubwa ni watanzania kumsaidia. 

Ametoa onyo kuwa ugonjwa wa Hamis usitumike vibaya kwani wanaweza kujitokeza watu na wakatoa namba za simu ili wawe wanatumiwa fedha kumbe ni matapeli."Hamis anahitaji kusaidiwa na si kutumika kibiashara."

"Breast milk is not a scarce commodity, it's a free-flowing resource."
Emma Kwasnica

I've recently become involved with an amazing group, Human Milk for Human Babies, formerly known as Eats on Feets Global.  This is one of the most amazing movements, and I am incredibly honored to be a part of it.

There are mommies like me who can't breastfeed their babies, or mommies who breastfeed but don't make enough milk.  When I was hospitalized, my breastfed baby needed food.  Formula is food, but not the food I would have chosen for him - breast milk is a superior food, made for baby humans.  Cow's milk is made for baby cows, and doesn't offer the same benefits, especially in a baby's GI track - which is of particular concern to me, since IBD can be hereditary.  I reached out to my local milk bank - but I found out that not only is the milk $4 per ounce ($120 a day!!), we couldn't have it, even if we wanted it.  My baby was healthy and full-term.  So, David got formula - and I'm glad it was there.  It was not an easy transition - his tummy was upset, and he really hated the taste.  But, food is food, and he eventually adjusted.  He's done well on formula - he's healthy, strong, and smart.  As my readers know, I don't have anything against people who choose formula as their baby's food.

If I'd had a choice at the time, though, I wouldn't have chosen to feed my son formula.

I learned about Eats on Feets through you, the readers of this blog.  I became friends with Emma Kwasnica, the group's founder on Facebook, and I was blown away by her passion and dedication.  At one point, she posted an amazing photo - a friend of hers was suddenly hospitalized, and she nursed her friend's baby while she was incapacitated.  The picture brought me to tears.  One image encapsulated the philosophy of milk sharing - that in an emergency, women could rely on each other.

Emma nursing a hospitalized friend's baby.  Don't like to see boobs?  Read this.

This is the heart of milk sharing and milk donation - that in an emergency situation, mothers who want their babies to be exclusively breastfed have that option, even if real life circumstances don't allow for it.  If a mother wants to use formula, fine by me - but if she doesn't, there should be a way for her to find an Emma!

Eats on Feets has become "Human Milk for Human Babies", a name that better describes its mission and can be translated across the globe (there's even a chapter in Kuwait!).   Mothers like me can meet local mothers like Emma, who have a surplus of milk to provide.  Not necessarily boob-to-mouth; most donation happens with the help of a pump and a freezer.  Some mamas overproduce, and they have mountains of bags of milk stored, more than their baby can consume before it expires.  Thanks to HM4HB and other milk-sharing connections, that milk can find its way to a local baby in need.


One of the coolest things about this is that HM4HB is not just getting babies milk, it's helping women connect and become friends.  While you can use milk sharing networks to just get milk and move on, I'm amazed at the real life connections that are happening.  Donor and recipient mommies are getting to know each other, having coffee, setting up playdates, visiting each other's homes.  There is a community growing as a result of the sharing.  Unlike donating to a milk bank, donor mommies can often hold the babies their milk is feeding, watch them grow and thrive on the precious gift of liquid gold.  In a world where technology so often distances, this is creating a village where none existed.

Are there risks to milk sharing?  Yes, of course.  There are risks to everything in life.  There are risks to formula-feeding (I fed my kid bugs, thank you Similac).  HM4HB isn't promising a risk-free solution, just a forum in which parents can have a choice - an informed choice.   Previously, the only choice moms like me could make was which brand of formula to buy.  Now, we can choose if we want to go check things out on the donation road.

As a recipient, ultimately, you trust that the woman who is donating is healthy and living a healthy life.  If she's breastfeeding her own child, you simply trust that she cares about her own baby enough to avoid things that could make her milk dangerous.  You can pasteurize the milk at home (instructions here), and many recipients ask for copies of their donor's prenatal medical records or request additional screening for safety.

Check it out!  If you have milk to donate, wouldn't it be nice to know exactly where that milk is going?  If you really hate feeding your baby formula, why not explore donated breast milk as an option?

Bogdanov amesema Urusi inao mpango mahususi wa kushirikiana na nchi za Afrika ikiwemo Tanzania katika kuongeza kasi ya maendeleo na kwamba hivi karibu Tanzania na Urusi zitatiliana saini makubaliano ya kuanzisha tume ya pamoja ya ushirikiano (Joint Permanent Commission – JPC) katika biashara, uwekezaji na uchumi ili rasilimali na fursa zilizopo katika pande zote zitumike kwa manufaa ya wananchi wa nchi hizo.

          TRA Yawahimiza Wafanyabiashara, Wamiliki Wa Majengo Kulipa Kodi Kwa Wakati      Cache   Translate Page      
Na Veronica Kazimoto
Mamlaka ya Mapato Tanzania (TRA) imewahimiza wafanyabiashara na wamiliki wa majengo kote nchini kulipa kodi kwa wakati hususani Kodi ya Mapato awamu ya kwanza, Kodi ya Majengo na Kodi ya Ongezeko la Thamani (VAT) ambapo huu ndio muda muafaka wa kulipa kodi hizo. 

Akizungumza na walipakodi katika Ofisi za TRA Vingunguti jijini Dar es Salaam, Mkurugenzi wa Huduma na Elimu kwa Mlipakodi, Richard Kayombo amesema kodi ya ongezeko la thamani inatakiwa kulipwa ifikapo Machi 20 mwaka huu, kodi ya mapato inatakiwa kulipwa kabla ya tarehe 30 Machi, 2019 wakati mwisho wa kulipa kodi ya majengo ni mwezi Juni, 2019.

“Ninachukua fursa hii kuwahimiza wafanyabiashara na wamiliki wa majengo mliopo hapa na wale watakaosikia taarifa hii kwenye vyombo mbalimbali vya habari kuwahi kulipa kodi hizi kwa wakati ili kuepuka usumbufu na hatimaye kujikuta mnatozwa faini na riba," alisema Kayombo.

Amesema kuwa, viwango vya kodi ya majengo ni shilingi 10,000 kwa nyumba za kawaida, shilingi 50,000 kwa kila sakafu ya ghorofa na shilingi 20,000 kwa nyumba za ghorafa zilizoko vijijini.

"Tunaona serikali imepunguza kiwango cha kodi ya majengo, hivyo hakuna sababu ya watu kuchelewesha na kusubiri dakika za mwisho, tulifanye suala la ulipaji kodi kuwa utamaduni wetu kwa lengo la kuleta maendeleo ya nchi yetu,” alisisitiza Kayombo.

Wakati huo huo, Mkurugenzi Kayombo amewatahadharisha walipakodi kuhusu uwepo wa watu wanaotumia jina la mamlaka hiyo kufanya utapeli kwa kujitambulisha kuwa ni maofisa wa TRA wakidai kwenda kukagua ulipaji wao wa kodi.

“TRA ina utaratibu wake wa kuwasiliana na wafanyabiashara na kuwajulisha siku rasmi ambazo maofisa wetu watakwenda kufanya ukaguzi na unafanyika kwa uwazi bila vitisho na si kwa taratibu nyinginezo,”alisema Kayombo

Ameongeza kuwa, "kama  mtu atapigiwa simu au kama una mtu una wasiwasi nae tafadhali toa taarifa kwa ofisi zetu zilizopo karibu nawe au toa taarifa Kituo cha Huduma kwa Wateja  namba 0800 780 078 au 0800 750 075 kuanzia saa mbili asubuhi hadi saa moja usiku na utupe namba ya mhusika ili tuweze kufuatilia.

“Pia kuna namba ya Whatsapp ambayo unaweza kutoa taarifa au kuuliza chochote kupitia namba 0744 233 333 ambayo ni maalum kwa ajili ya kutatua changamoto za wananchi na kuwawezesha kulipa kodi kwa wakati,” alisema Kayombo.

Richard Kayombo amesema kuwa, tangu mwezi Desemba mwaka jana, TRA imekuwa ikipata malalamiko kutoka kwa watu tofauti tofauti ambao wamekuwa wakitapeliwa fedha na maofisa feki wanaodai kufanya kazi Mamlaka ya Mapato Tanzania.

          Serikali Yatoa Onyo Kwa Gazeti la Mwananchi, Citizen      Cache   Translate Page      
Serikali  ya Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania, imetoa onyo kwa magazeti ya Mwananchi na The Citizen kwa kuyataka yajitafakari kwa kile ilichoeleza kuwa wameandika habari za “uongo wa karne”.

Akitoa onyo hilo, Msemaji Mkuu wa Serikali, Dkt. Hassan Abbasi Hassani kupitia ukurasa wake wa Twitter, amesema kuwa magazeti hayo kwenye matoleo yake ya mtandaoni yalichapisha habari za uongo, huku wakitumia takwimu zisizo rasmi.

Dr Abbasi ameandika; Ufafanuzi: Jana magazeti ya the Citizen na Mwananchi matoleo ya mitandaoni yalibeba habari iliyodai wahisani wametoa 6.7% tu kwenye bajeti. Habari hii ni uongo wa karne. Takwimu zilizowekwa hata kwenye viambatishi vya hotuba ya Waziri zinaonesha imetolewa 69% kufikia Jan., 2019.

Kwa makosa haya yanayojirudiarudia na yenye nia ovu (kwa kuwa hawakutaka hata ufafanuzi wa Serikali au nyaraka), Serikali inayapa nafasi ya mwisho magazeti ya Mwananchi na the Citizen kujitafakari tena kama yana sababu, nia na dhamira ya kuendelea na kazi hii.

          Waziri Wa Kilimo Afanya Mazungumzo Na Mkurugenzi Wa Shirika La Kimataifa La Nguvu Za Atomiki Prof Shaukat Abdulrazak      Cache   Translate Page      
Na Mathias Canal, Wizara ya Kilimo-Dodoma
Waziri wa Kilimo Mhe Japhet Hasunga (Mb) leo tarehe 13 Machi 2019 amekutana na kufanya mazungumzo na Mkurugenzi wa Shirika la Kimataifa la nguvu za Atomiki Duniani (IAEA) Kanda ya Afrika Prof Shaukat Abdulrazak.

Katika Mkutano huo uliotuama kwa masaa kadhaa katika Ukumbi wa Wizara ya Kilimo Jijini Dodoma Waziri Hasunga amemueleza Prf Shaukat kuwa serikali ya Tanzania inaendelea na mchakato wa kubaini wafanyabiashara wanaouza mbegu feki kwa wakulima kwani wanasababisha hasara kwa wananchi na Taifa kwa ujumla wake.
 
Alisema Tanzania ni miongoni mwa nchi Duniani ambazo wananchi wake wa wamekuwa wakiuziwa mbegu feki jambo ambalo serikali ya awamu ya tano inayoongozwa na Mhe Rais Dkt john Pombe Magufuli imetilia mkazo kadhia hiyo na watakaobainika watachukuliwa hatua kali za kisheria.
 
Kadhalika, Waziri Hasunga alisema kuwa pamoja na Wizara ya Kilimo kuendelea na mchakato wa kuboresha kilimo kwa kutumia teknolojia mpya lakini bado inakabiliwa na uuzwaji wa viuatilifu feki jambo ambalo limefifihisha juhudi za wakulima kwa muda mrefu.
 
“Wananchi wetu wanajitahidi kulima kwa kiasi kikubwa lakini kumekuwepo na changamoto kubwa ya Viuatilifu na Mbegu feki jambo hili hatuwezi kuliacha kamwe hivyo hivi karibuni nimetangaza kiama na wafanyabiashara wanaosambaza tutakapowabaini tutawachukulia hatua kali sana” Alikaririwa Mhe Hasunga
 
Katika hatua nyingine alieleza kuwa wakulima wengi nchini wamekuwa wakitumia mazao yao kama mbegu badala ya kutumia mbegu mpya jambo hili linapunguza kwa kiasi kikubwa ufanisi katika uzalishaji wa mazao.
 
Akizungumza katika mkutano huo Mkurugenzi wa Shirika la Kimataifa la nguvu za Atomiki Duniani (IAEA) Kanda ya Afrika Prof Shaukat Abdulrazak alisema kuwa kukutana na waziri wa Kilimo nchini Tanzania kumeimarisha maradufu ushirikiano ambao umeanzishwa kwa muda mrefu na shirika hilo.
 
Alisema kuwa mradi wa nguvu za Atomiki Duniani katika Kanda ya Afrika unahusisha nchi 45 ambapo unajikita katika uhusiano wa ushirikiano katika mazao mbalimbali yanayozalishwa.

          Serikali Yapiga Marufuku Kutangaza Magonjwa ya Mifugo      Cache   Translate Page      
Serikali  imeogesha mifugo milioni 32, sawa na asilimia 56 ya mifugo milioni 57 iliyopo nchini, katika kipindi cha miezi mitatu, tangu kuzinduliwa kwa kampeni ya kitaifa ya uogeshaji mifugo.

Pia, imepiga marufuku mtu yeyote kutangaza kuwepo magonjwa ya mifugo, isipokuwa yule aliyepewa mamlaka hayo kwa mujibu wa Sheria.

Hayo yamesemwa na Waziri wa Mifugo na Uvuvi, Luhaga Mpina, wakati akizungumzia tathmini ya kampeni ya uogeshaji kitaifa, iliyofanyika kwenye josho la kwanza kujengwa na Wajerumani katika nchi za Afrika Mashariki liitwalo Nunge, lililojengwa mwaka 1905 wilayani Mpwapwa mkoani Dodoma.

Alisema Sheria za Kimataifa na Sheria ya Magonjwa ya Mifugo Namba 17 ya mwaka 2003, inazuia kufanya hivyo.

Mpina alisema shabaha ya kuzuiwa kufanya hivyo kwa sababu baadhi ya watu wanaweza kujitokeza kupeleka hofu kwa wananchi na kusababisha kuharibu biashara hiyo.

Hivyo, alisema Mkurugenzi wa Huduma za Mifugo (DVS) ndiye aliyepewa dhamana ya kutangaza ugonjwa wowote wa mifugo kwa niaba ya Watanzania na wala sio mtendaji yeyote yule wa serikali.

“Ndugu zangu vyombo vya habari msije mkaingia kwenye mgogoro wa serikali, mambo ya chakula ni sensitive (nyeti) tukifanya hivyo tutakuwa tunapeleka maneno ya taharuki kwa wananchi, tumuachie aliyepewa jukumu hilo, hivyo sitegemei tena kama watu wengine wataendelea kufanya hivyo,” alisema Mpina.

Alisema nchi imejipanga vizuri kudhibiti magonjwa ya mifugo na ndio maana inazo kanda nane za uchunguzi wa magonjwa ya mifugo, hivyo Watanzania wako salama Tanzania iko huru na magonjwa.

Alisema kwa sasa Tanzania inazalisha chanjo nane na kufikia Septemba hadi mwakani, kutakuwa na chanjo 11 ili mifugo ichanjwe isipatwe tena na magonjwa.

Mpina alisema ifikapo Julai mosi mwaka huu wizara yake itakuwa imeshatoa kanuni za namna ya uendeshaji wa kazi ya uogeshaji ili kila mmoja afahamu wajibu wake.

Alisisitiza agizo lake la ukarabati wa majosho na ifikapo Julai Mosi mwaka huu, halmashauri ambayo itakuwa haijakarabati majosho, itazuiliwa kukusanya mapato huku akizindikia barua za kusudio la kuzizuia kukusanya mapato halmashauri hizo.

Majosho 132 kati ya majosho mabovu 1,124 yameshakarabatiwa. Hivyo, asilimia 11 ya agizo hilo limetekelezwa, ikiwa ni miezi mitatu tangu limetolewa.

Aliupongeza Mkoa wa Kagera kwa kukarabati majosho 34, Mkoa wa Mwanza wamekarabati majosho 19, Mkoa wa Arusha majosho 11, Mkoa wa Dodoma majosho mawili tu na wengine hawajafanya hivyo.

Mpina alisema halmashauri zote nchini zinakusanya zaidi ya Sh bilioni 30 kwa mwaka kutokana na sekta ya mifugo, lakini halmashauri zinatenga fedha kidogo za kusaidia mifugo.

          Waziri wa Kilimo Asisitiza Kuwepo Matokeo Chanya Katika Utekelezaji Wa Mradi Wa SUMUKUVU (TAIPAC)      Cache   Translate Page      
Na Mathias canal, Wizara ya Kilimo-Dodoma
Watekelezaji wote wa Mradi wa Kudhibiti Sumukuvu Tanzania- (Tanzania Initiatives for Preventing Aflatoxin Contamination – TANIPAC) wametakiwa kuhakikisha kuwa kunakuwa na matokeo chanya katika jamii katika utekelezaji wa mradi huo ili kuhakikisha kuwa umasikini unapungua (Poverty reduction), na kujikita kutazama utekelezaji wa matokeo ya kama yatalingana na thamani ya fedha itakayotumika (Value for Money).

Waziri wa Kilimo, Mhe Japhet Hasunga (Mb) ameyasema hayo leo Tarehe 12 machi, 2019 wakati akizindua mradi wa kudhibiti Sumukuvu Tanzania (TANIPAC), katika ukumbi wa Kambarage uliopo katika jengo la Wizara ya Fedha na Mipango (HAZINA) Jijini Dodoma.

Alisema kuwa, Mwezi Juni, 2018 Serikali ilizindua Programu ya Maendeleo ya Sekta ya Kilimo Awamu ya Pili au kwa kifupi ASDP II.  Programu ya ASDP II inalenga kuongeza tija katika uzalishaji, kukifanya kilimo kiwe cha biashara na kuongeza pato la mkulima ili kuboresha maisha, uhakika wa chakula pamoja na lishe.  Program hii inatekelezwa kikamilifu kupitia miradi mbalimbali ili kufikia malengo iliyojiwekea.

Mradi wa TANIPAC unatekelezwa chini ya vipengele (Component) Na. 2 na 3 ambavyo vinalenga kuongeza tija katika uzalishaji na kuongeza thamani ya mazao.  Thamani ya mazao ni pamoja na chakula salama ambacho kinaenda kuuzwa kwa walaji ndani na nje ya nchi.  Na kwa kuwa ASDP II inalenga kukifanya Kilimo kuwa cha kibiashara, ni dhahiri mazao yanayotakiwa kuuzwa ni yale yaliyo salama.

Alisema, utekelezaji wa mradi huo utasaidia katika kutimiza malengo ya ASDP II ambayo yana Kaulimbiu inayosema: Chakula ni Uhai. Tafsiri ya Kaulimbiu hii ni: - chakula salama ni msingi wa maisha, hivyo hapana budi kuimarisha mfumo wa uzalishaji wa chakula salama.

Waziri Hasunga alisema kuwa Suala la kuimarisha  biashara na masoko pamoja na uhakika wa chakula na lishe pia ni vipaumbele muhimu katika utekelezaji wa mpango wa uwekezaji na usalama wa chakula katika sekta ya Kilimo (Tanzania Agricultural and Food Security Investment Plan -TAFSIP) na Mpango wa Kuendeleza Sekta ya Kilimo Bara la Afrika (Comprehensive African Agriculture Development Program – CAADP) kama ilivyoelekezwa kwenye Azimio la Malabo.

Kadhalika, suala la usalama wa chakula ni hitaji la lazima katika kufikia Malengo Endelevu ya Dunia (Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs), hususani Lengo Na.2.1, 3.2 na 2.3 ambayo kwa ujumla yamelenga kukomesha njaa, kuhakikisha kuwa kuna usalama wa chakula na lishe, kilimo endelevu, kuimarisha afya na siha za watu nakupunguza upotevu wa chakula kwa kiwango cha asilimia 50 ifikapo mwaka 2030.

“Ili tuweze kuelewana vizuri nataka tutofautishe dhana ya usalama wa chakula (food security) na chakula salama (food safety).  Mradi tunaozindua leo ni wa kuhakikisha chakula tunachozalisha, tunachouza na tunachokula ni salama kwa maana ya kutokuwa na sumu inayoweza kuathiri afya za watumiaji.  Usalama wa chakula ni hali ya kuwa na uhakika wa chakula cha kutosha na chenye viini lishe vya kutosha katika ngazi ya kaya na Taifa” Alikaririwa Mhe Hasunga na kuongeza kuwa

“Ni muhimu tukafahamu kuwa, suala la chakula salama (food safety) ni tatizo Duniani kote na huathiri mataifa yote, hasa yale yanayoendelea kama Tanzania na nchi nyingine za dunia ya tatu. Hii inatokana na kutokuwa na mifumo imara ya usimamizi katika nyanja za uzalishaji wa chakula, uhifadhi na ugavi”

Mhe Hasunga alieleza kuwa Changamoto hiyo ya chakula salama inachangia kwa kiasi kikubwa kudhoofisha afya za Walaji, wakati mwingine vifo na athari nyingine nyingi zikiwemo za kiuchumi.

Tatizo la sumukuvu si geni katika Ukanda wa Afrika Mashariki Kwa mfano, tatizo hilo limekuwa likijitokeza mara kadhaa katika nchi ya Kenya ambapo mwaka 2004 watu zaidi ya 300 walipata ugonjwa wa Aflatoxicosis utokanao na sumukuvu na kusababisha vifo vya Watu 125 baada ya kula chakula kilichokuwa na kiwango kikubwa cha sumukuvu.

Tatizo kama hilo liliwahi kutokea nchini mwaka 2016 ambapo zaidi ya watu 60 katika Halmashauri za Bahi, Chemba, Kiteto na Kondoa waliugua baada ya kula chakula chenye kiwango kikubwa cha sumukuvu na watu 19 kufariki kwa tatizo hilo.

Mradi wa TANIPAC ambao umezinduliwa na Waziri wa Kilimo Mhe Japhet Hasunga unalengo la kupunguza sumukuvu (aflatoxin) katika mazao ya mahindi na karanga.

Aidha, Taarifa zinaonesha kuwa tatizo la Sumukuvu ni kubwa kwani inakadiriwa kuwa asilimia 25 ya mazao yote yanayozalishwa duniani yanaathiriwa na Sumukuvu.

Tafiti za kiafya zinabainisha kwamba, sumukuvu huchangia zaidi ya aina 25 za saratani na kipekee inachangia asilimia 30 ya saratani ya ini.  Pamoja na kuchangia saratani, kuna ushahidi wa kisayansi unaoonesha kwamba sumu hiyo huchangia udumavu kwa watoto ambapo  yanaathiri ukuaji wa mtoto kimaumbile pamoja na kuchangia kudumaa kwa akili.  Vilevile, tatizo la sumukuvu huathiri biashara ya mazao ya chakula katika soko la Kimataifa ambapo kwa Bara la Afrika linapoteza zaidi ya Dola za Marekani Milioni 670 ambayo ni sawa na asilimia 40 ya mauzo yote ya nje yanayokataliwa kila mwaka.

          Naibu Waziri Aagiza Wafungwa Watumike Ujenzi wa Chuo cha Polisi Kurasini      Cache   Translate Page      
Naibu Waziri wa Mambo ya Ndani, Hamad Masauni ameliekeza Jeshi la Polisi Tanzania kuwatumia wafungwa katika shughuli za ujenzi wa chuo cha polisi ili kupunguza gharama.

Masauni ametoa agizo hilo jana Jumanne Machi 12, 2019 alipotembelea majengo chakavu ya Chuo cha Polisi Kurasini jijini Dar es Salaam ambayo yanatakiwa kurekebishwa kwa kutengenezwa mabweni na vyumba vya madarasa.

Taarifa iliyotolewa na wizara hiyo imeeleza kuwa Masauni amekwenda chuoni hapo kuangalia hatua za awali kabla ya kuanza kwa ujenzi huo na kupata mchanganuo wa kiasi cha Sh700 milioni zilizotolewa na Rais John Magufuli zitakavyotumika.

Kiasi hicho cha fedha kilichotolewa kwa polisi Machi 7, 2019 ni utekelezaji wa ahadi ya Rais Magufuli aliyoitoa mwishoni mwa mwaka jana wakati wa mahafali ya kuhitimisha Mafunzo ya Kozi za Uofisa na Ukaguzi Msaidizi.

Masauni ameelekeza wafungwa wakitumika upo uwezekano wa kuokoa kiasi cha Sh200 milioni fedha ambazo zinaweza kutumika kwa matumizi mengine.

“Wizara ina taasisi ya magereza ambayo ina nguvu kazi ya kutosha, na Rais alishaagiza wafungwa watumike katika shughuli za uzalishaji, sioni sababu ya kutumia kiasi hicho cha pesa kuwalipa vibarua wa nje,” amesema. 

“Naagiza muwasiliane na Jeshi la Magereza na kikosi cha ufundi kilichopo ndani ya Jeshi la Polisi ili muweze kuona ni vipi mnaokoa kiasi hicho,” amesema Masauni.

3.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, taarifa hii inawasilisha Mapendekezo ya Serikali ya Mpango wa Maendeleo wa Taifa na ya kiwango na ukomo wa bajeti ya Serikali kwa mwaka ujao wa fedha 2019/20 ambayo imegawanyika katika sehemu kuu tatu. Sehemu ya kwanza ni tathmini ya mwenendo wa hali ya uchumi. Sehemu ya pili ni Mapitio ya Utekelezaji wa Mpango wa Maendeleo wa mwaka 2018/19 na Mapendekezo ya Serikali ya Mpango wa Maendeleo wa Taifa kwa mwaka 2019/20. Sehemu ya tatu ni tathmini ya utekelezaji wa bajeti kwa mwaka 2018/19 na mapendekezo ya kiwango na ukomo wa bajeti ya Serikali kwa mwaka 2019/20.

SEHEMU YA KWANZA

TATHMINI YA MWENENDO WA HALI UCHUMI

4.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, kutokana na juhudi za Serikali ya Awamu ya Tano inayoongozwa na Mheshimiwa Dkt. John Pombe Joseph Magufuli katika kuiandaa nchi kuelekea uchumi wa kipato cha kati, uchumi umeendelea kuimarika. Pato la Taifa  kwa kutumia mwaka wa kizio 2015 linaonesha kuwa katika robo ya tatu (Julai hadi Septemba) ya mwaka 2018, Pato la Taifa lilikua kwa wastani wa asilimia 6.8 ikilinganishwa na asilimia 5.0 kipindi kama hicho mwaka 2017. Shughuli za kiuchumi zilizokuwa kwa kasi kubwa ya ukuaji ni afya (asilimia 13.2), usafirishaji na uhifadhi mizigo (asilimia 12.4); Maji (asilimia 10.7); Ujenzi (asilimia 7.4); Habari na Mawasiliano (asilimia 7.3); viwanda (asilimia 7.3); na Biashara na Matengenezo (asilimia 7.3).

5.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, katika mwaka 2018, mwenendo wa mfumuko wa bei nchini uliendelea kuwa tulivu katika wigo wa tarakimu moja kutokana na kuimarika kwa hali ya upatikanaji wa chakula nchini na nchi jirani pamoja na usimamizi madhubuti wa sera za fedha na bajeti za Serikali. Mfumuko wa bei ulipungua kutoka wastani wa asilimia 4.0 Januari 2018, hadi kufikia asilimia 3.4 Juni 2018 na kuendelea kupungua zaidi hadi asilimia 3.0 Januari 2019.

6.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, katika kipindi cha mwaka unaoishia Januari 2019 thamani ya mauzo ya bidhaa na huduma nchi za nje ilikuwa dola za Marekani milioni 8,300.0 na thamani ya bidhaa na huduma zilizonunuliwa kutoka nje ilikuwa dola za Marekani milioni 10,462.6. Kwa upande wa nakisi ya urari wa biashara ya bidhaa, huduma na uhamisho wa mali nchi za nje ilikuwa dola za Marekani milioni 2,982.2 kutokana na kuongezeka kwa thamani ya bidhaa za mitaji zilizoagizwa kutoka nje ya nchi kwa ajili ya miradi mikubwa ya maendeleo. Kwa matokeo hayo akiba ya fedha za kigeni ni Dola za Marekani milioni 4,884.4 Januari 2019, kiasi kinachotosheleza kuagiza bidhaa na huduma kutoka nje ya nchi kwa kipindi cha takribani miezi 4.8. Kiwango hiki ni zaidi ya lengo la nchi wanachama wa Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki la miezi 4.5.

7.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, Ujazi wa fedha kwa tafsiri pana zaidi (M3) uliongezeka kwa wastani wa asilimia 6.6 katika mwaka 2018 ikilinganishwa na ongezeko la wastani wa asilimia 5.5 katika kipindi cha mwaka 2017. Mwenendo huo ulichangiwa na kuimarika kwa ukuaji wa mikopo kwa sekta binafsi kulikotokana na jitihada za Serikali kupitia Benki Kuu katika kuchochea ongezeko la mikopo kwa sekta binafsi. Riba za dhamana za muda mfupi za Serikali zilipungua hadi wastani wa asilimia 6.4 ikilinganishwa na wastani wa asilimia 11.1 mwaka 2017. Vile vile, riba za mikopo ya benki za biashara kwa sekta binafsi zimeendelea kupungua kutoka wastani wa asilimia 17.8 mwaka 2017 hadi wastani wa asilimia 17.4 mwaka 2018.

8.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, Mikopo kwa sekta binafsi iliendelea kuimarika kufuatia utekelezaji wa sera ya kuongeza ukwasi kwenye uchumi pamoja na jitihada zilizochukuliwa na Serikali kupitia Benki Kuu katika kuchochea ongezeko la mikopo kwa sekta binafsi. Kasi ya ukuaji wa mikopo kwa sekta binafsi imeendelea kuongezeka ambapo Januari 2019 ilikuwa asilimia 7.3 ikilinganishwa na asilimia 2.1 Januari 2018. Sehemu kubwa ya mikopo kwa sekta binafsi imeendelea kuelekezwa katika shughuli binafsi (asilimia 27.9 ya mikopo yote) ikifuatiwa na shughuli za biashara zilizopata asilimia 18.4, uzalishaji viwandani (asilimia 11.6) na kilimo (asilimia 7.8).

9.           Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, mwenendo wa thamani ya Shilingi dhidi ya Dola ya Marekani umeendelea kuwa tulivu ambapo katika mwaka 2018, Dola moja ya Marekani ilinunuliwa kwa wastani wa Shilingi 2,263.8. Hii ni kutokana na utekelezaji madhubuti wa sera za fedha, usimamizi thabiti wa mapato na matumizi ya Serikali, matumizi ya gesi asilia na umeme wa maji badala ya mafuta katika kuzalisha umeme na baadhi ya viwanda nchini kuzalisha bidhaa ambazo awali zilikua zikiagizwa kwa wingi kutoka nje.

10.       Mheshimiwa Mwenyekiti, Serikali ya Awamu ya Tano, itaendelea kutekeleza sera madhubuti za fedha na bajeti ili kuhakikisha uchumi wa nchi yetu unaendelea kuimarika.

Mbali na Mbowe mwingine ni mbunge wa Tarime Mjini (Chadema), Esther Matiko ambao kwa pamoja walikuwa mahabusu katika gereza la Segerea baada ya kufutiwa dhamana na Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Kisutu.

Hata hivyo, Machi 7, 2019 Mahakam Kuu Kanda ya Dar es Salaam iliwarejeshea dhamana yao, baada ya kushinda rufaa waliyoikata wakipinga uamuzi wa Mahakama ya Kisutu.

Baada ya kutoka, wawili hao leo Machi 12, 2019 wamekwenda bungeni kuhudhuria vikao vya kamati za Bunge ambapo Waziri wa Fedha na Mipango, Dk Philip Mpango anawasilisha mapendekezo ya Serikali ya Mpango, Kiwango cha Ukomo wa Bajeti ya Serikali kwa mwaka wa fedha 2019/2020.

          Waziri Biteko azitaka nchi za Maziwa Makuu Kudhibiti Raslimali Ardhi      Cache   Translate Page      
Na Issa Mtuwa Dodoma
Nchi Wanachama wa Maziwa Makuu zimetakiwa kushikamana kuunganisha nguvu katika kulinda na kusimamia matumizi ya raslimali ardhi ikiwemo madini ili kunufaisha nchi hizo. 

Hayo yamesemwa na Waziri wa Madini Doto Biteko wakati akifungua mkutano wa Kimataifa    wa nchi Wanachama wa Maziwa Makuu (International Conference on the Great Lakes Region - ICGLR) unaofanyika kwa siku mbili kuanzia tarehe 11-12 Machi 2019 katika Hotel ya Morena jijini Dodoma.  

Biteko amezitaka nchi hizo kuunganisha nguvu ya pamoja katika kudhibiti raslimali ardhi ikiwemo madini na kujiwekea utaratibu utakao dhibiti shughuli za uzalishaji na biashara ya madini ili raslimali hizo zinufaishe mataifa yao na zisitumike vibaya. 

“Unganisheni nguvu kwa pamoja, wekeni utaratibu utakao wafanya nchi wanachama kunufaika na raslimali ardhi/madini. Jitahidini kuhakikisha raslimali hizo hazitumiki vibaya kama ilivyo kubaliwa kwenye itifaki, hivyo lazima kuwe na utaratibu na sheria kwa kila nchi namna ya kudhibiti uzalishaji na biashara ya madini,” amesema Biteko. 

Naye, Mtaalam kutoka Wizara ya Madini, Mhandisi Assah Mwakilembe amesema Mkutano huo unalenga kujadili na kupitia mfumo wa udhibitisho wa mnyororo wa madini kwa lengo la kudhibiti uzalishaji na biashara ya madini katika nchi za maziwa makuu kufuatia kuwepo tetesi zilizo kuwa zinahusisha raslimali ardhi (Madini) na ufadhili wa vita katika nchi za aaziwa makuu. (Region Certification Manual) 

Akizungumza mara baada ya kuwasilisha mada kuhusu marekebisho ya Sheria Madini ya Mwaka 2017 Mkurugenzi wa Idara ya Sheria kutoka Wizara ya Madini, Edwin Igenge amesema kwa upande wa Tanzania, imetekeleza itifaki ya pamoja ya nchi wanachama wa Maziwa Makuu kama ilivyo kubaliwa. 

Ameongeza kuwa, utekelezaji wa itifaki kwa Tanzania ni pamoja na marekebisho ya sheria ya Madini ya Mwaka 2017 yaliyopelekea kuundwa kwa Tume ya Madini ambapo shuguli zote za usimamizi wa raslimali madini zimepewa Tume ya Madini ambapo kabla ya hapo shuguli hizo zilikuwa chini ya Kamishna wa Madini. 

Igenge amesema kuanzishwa kwa itifaki katika nchi za maziwa makuu kulitokana na tetesi za uwepo wa matumizi mabaya ya raslimali ardhi ikiwemo madini ambapo kipato cha raslimali hizo inasadikika kuwa zilikuwa zinatumika kufadhili shuguli za za kivita katika nchi za maziwa makuu, hivyo kupelekea kuanzishwa kwa itifaki ya pamoja kwa lengo la kudhibiti.  

Mkutano huo wa kimataaifa unahudhuriwa na wajumbe kutoka Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda na wawakilishi wa Shirika la Maendeleo la Ujerumani (GIZ) na Sekretariati ya nchi wanachama wa Maziwa Makuu. Kwa upande wa  Tanzania inawakilishwa na Wizara ya Madini, Wizara ya Mambo ya Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, Shirikisho la Wachimbaji Tanzania (FEMATA), Chama cha Wanunuzi  na Wauzaji wa  Madini Tanzania  (TAMIDA), Tume ya Madini, Shirika la Madini la Taifa (STAMICO), Wakala wa  Jiolojia na Utafiti wa Madini (GST).  

Katika mkutano huo, Waziri Biteko aliambatana na Naibu Waziri wa Madini Stanslaus Nyongo, Kamishna wa Madini Mhandisi Daivid Mulabwa, Mkurugenzi wa Sheria kutoka Wizara ya Madini Edwin Igenge na baadhi ya maafisa kutoka wizara ya Madini.

Is Kagame Looking for An Alternative Route to Sea?

Rwandan President Paul Kagame's visit to Dar es Salaam, where he held private talks with President John Magufuli, in the middle of a spat with Uganda raises eyebrows. NMG

In Summary
Rwandan president was in Tanzania for a two-day visit this past week.
About 80 per cent of Rwanda’s import cargo is handled through the Dar port, but its major exports — minerals, tea and coffee — go through Uganda to the port of Mombasa.
Analysts said President Kagame is being tactful in seeking President Magufuli’s intervention in Rwanda’s developing crises in the region.

By IVAN R. MUGISHA

Rwandan President Paul Kagame was in Tanzania this past week on a two-day visit, seen as a quest to firm up relations with Dar in the wake of escalating tensions with Uganda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

President Kagame, who arrived in Dar es Salaam on Thursday, held private talks with President John Magufuli, in what is perceived as a quest to have the Tanzanian leader mediate in the security and commercial dispute between Kampala and Kigali.

The souring of relations between the two neighbours has been simmering for years now, and worsened last week when Rwanda closed the Gatuna border post.

In recent weeks, Kigali has complained that Uganda has been subjecting its citizens to illegal arrests and torture. Kampala had earlier accused Rwanda of transporting goods through the common transport corridor in breach of the provisions of the East African Community Common Market Protocol, and held tens of Rwandan trucks for weeks before releasing them.

Rwanda, a small landlocked country, is served by two major transport corridors — the Central Corridor that runs from Dar es Salaam through Tanzania’s heartland, and the Northern Corridor that runs from Mombasa through Kenya and Uganda.

About 80 per cent of Rwanda’s import cargo is handled through the Dar port, but its major exports — minerals, tea and coffee — go through Uganda to the port of Mombasa.

Oil and capital goods to Rwanda come in mainly through Dar es Salaam. It is this route that President Kagame is seen to be moving to secure, as prospects of undertaking joint infrastructure projects with Kenya and Uganda grow dimmer as relations with Kampala get icier.

Rail network

The planned SGR line linking Mombasa to landlocked Uganda and Rwanda has lagged behind schedule, largely due to financing constraints, doubts over its economic viability, and the high cost of construction and indecisiveness of some partner states.

The planned 1,500km railway line from Mombasa to Kigali was expected to be completed by 2018, but only Kenya has completed the initial Mombasa-Nairobi phase of the project.

Rwanda is part of this rail network, but it has more recently turned its focus to the Isaka-Kigali project, which is estimated to be cheaper than the Kenyan-Uganda route by about $200 million.

Rwanda consumes more than 200 million litres of fuel annually, averaging 20 million litres a month. In the third quarter of 2018, Rwanda’s imports from EAC partner states totalled $154 million, representing 20.8 per cent of all its imports.

Tanzania’s share of those imports was 24 per cent or third after Uganda and Kenya, who accounted for 43 per cent and 32 per cent of the imports respectively.

Ismael Buchanan, an international relations expert and senior lecturer at the University of Rwanda, said President Magufuli had maintained close ties with both President Kagame and President Museveni, making him a worthy mediator.

President Kagame was in Tanzania on the invitation of President Magufuli. He was accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister Richard Sezibera, his Infrastructure counterpart Claver Gatete, State Minister for East African Community Affairs Olivier Nduhungirehe and Intelligence Chief Gen Joseph Nzabamwita.

“The presidents had a tête-à-tête and spoke mainly about bilateral relations and promotion of trade between the two countries,” Mr Nduhungirehe told The EastAfrican, without further details.

Intervention

Rwandan officials met their Tanzanian counterparts for discussions on reinforcing trade and collaboration between the two countries. The EastAfrican learned that no agreements were signed.

Talks between the two presidents are said to have also featured Rwanda’s frosty ties with Burundi.

Analysts said President Kagame is being tactful in seeking President Magufuli’s intervention in Rwanda’s developing crises in the region.

“As the chairperson of the EAC, Kagame understands that dialogue is important. So I believe he sees this as the right time to solve this problem, and Magufuli may be the right person to advise him on the way forward,” Prof Buchanan said.

President Kagame’s last state visit to Tanzania was in January 2018, when he went for a review of the joint standard gauge railway plan that is to run from Isaka to Kigali. Construction of the 571km railway line at a cost of $2.5 billion was set to begin last December.

In view of the recent developments, President Kagame would be anxious to get this project done soon to clear the logistical nightmare that would arise were Uganda to block goods destined for Rwanda from passing through its territory. In January, both presidents asked the technical teams to fast-track the project, which has been held back by the absence of a contractor.

Tanzania is expected to pay $1.3 billion and Rwanda $1.2 billion in project financing.

President Magufuli, who rarely travels out of the country, made his first foreign visit to Rwanda in April 2016, five months after assuming office, to inaugurate the Rusumo One-Stop-Border Post and an international bridge on the border between Rwanda and Tanzania.

Age distribution, trends, and forecasts of under-5 mortality in 31 sub-Saharan African countries: A modeling study.

PLoS Med. 2019 Mar;16(3):e1002757

Authors: Mejía-Guevara I, Zuo W, Bendavid E, Li N, Tuljapurkar S

Abstract
BACKGROUND: Despite the sharp decline in global under-5 deaths since 1990, uneven progress has been achieved across and within countries. In sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for child mortality were met only by a few countries. Valid concerns exist as to whether the region would meet new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for under-5 mortality. We therefore examine further sources of variation by assessing age patterns, trends, and forecasts of mortality rates.
METHODS AND FINDINGS: Data came from 106 nationally representative Demographic and Health Surveys (DHSs) with full birth histories from 31 SSA countries from 1990 to 2017 (a total of 524 country-years of data). We assessed the distribution of age at death through the following new demographic analyses. First, we used a direct method and full birth histories to estimate under-5 mortality rates (U5MRs) on a monthly basis. Second, we smoothed raw estimates of death rates by age and time by using a two-dimensional P-Spline approach. Third, a variant of the Lee-Carter (LC) model, designed for populations with limited data, was used to fit and forecast age profiles of mortality. We used mortality estimates from the United Nations Inter-agency Group for Child Mortality Estimation (UN IGME) to adjust, validate, and minimize the risk of bias in survival, truncation, and recall in mortality estimation. Our mortality model revealed substantive declines of death rates at every age in most countries but with notable differences in the age patterns over time. U5MRs declined from 3.3% (annual rate of reduction [ARR] 0.1%) in Lesotho to 76.4% (ARR 5.2%) in Malawi, and the pace of decline was faster on average (ARR 3.2%) than that observed for infant (IMRs) (ARR 2.7%) and neonatal (NMRs) (ARR 2.0%) mortality rates. We predict that 5 countries (Kenya, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda) are on track to achieve the under-5 sustainable development target by 2030 (25 deaths per 1,000 live births), but only Rwanda and Tanzania would meet both the neonatal (12 deaths per 1,000 live births) and under-5 targets simultaneously. Our predicted NMRs and U5MRs were in line with those estimated by the UN IGME by 2030 and 2050 (they overlapped in 27/31 countries for NMRs and 22 for U5MRs) and by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) by 2030 (26/31 and 23/31, respectively). This study has a number of limitations, including poor data quality issues that reflected bias in the report of births and deaths, preventing reliable estimates and predictions from a few countries.
CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this study is the first to combine full birth histories and mortality estimates from external reliable sources to model age patterns of under-5 mortality across time in SSA. We demonstrate that countries with a rapid pace of mortality reduction (ARR ≥ 3.2%) across ages would be more likely to achieve the SDG mortality targets. However, the lower pace of neonatal mortality reduction would prevent most countries from achieving those targets: 2 countries would reach them by 2030, 13 between 2030 and 2050, and 13 after 2050.

          Identifying ecosystem service hotspots for targeting land degradation neutrality investments in south-eastern Africa      Cache   Translate Page      
Identifying ecosystem service hotspots for targeting land degradation neutrality investments in south-eastern Africa Willemen, L; Crossman, ND; Quatrini, S; Egoh, Benis N; Kalaba, FK Land degradation response actions need motivated stakeholders and investments to improve land management. In this study we present methods to prioritise locations for degradation mitigation investments based on stakeholder preferences for ecosystem services. We combine participatory and spatial modelling approaches and apply these for Zambia, South Africa, and Tanzania to: i) prioritise ecosystem services in each country; ii) to map the supply of these ecosystem services in each country, and; iii) prioritise areas important for investment for the continuous delivery of these ecosystem services based on their vulnerability to land degradation. We interviewed 31 stakeholders from governmental and non-governmental organizations to select the most important ecosystem services per county. Stakeholders were also asked to indicate on national maps the hotspots of these ecosystem services and locations with a high degradation risk. We then assessed the supply of the stakeholder-selected ecosystem services and land degradation risk using GIS-based spatial models. We found that for each country the spatial extent and magnitude of ecosystem services supply and land degradation based on GIS data coincides with stakeholder knowledge in some locations. In the context of supporting national level policy to achieve land degradation neutrality as proposed by the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification we argue that the correct representation, the level of acceptance, and use of modelled outputs to support decisions will be greater when model outputs are corroborated by stakeholder knowledge. Ecosystem services that are identified as “important” by diverse stakeholder groups have a broader level of awareness and could therefore drive motivations, commitments, and actions towards improved land management, contributing to land degradation neutrality.

Wasanii wakimsaidia kijana Hamis Salumu mwenye matatizo ya kuvimba miguu kumuingiza katika hospitali ya Taifa ya Muhimbili kupatiwa matibabu baada ya Rais Dkt John Pombe Magufuli kujitolea kumpatia matibabu kwa kupitia Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam Paul Makonda na Wasanii wakiongozwa na Steve Nyerere.
 Wasanii wakiwa nje ya Chumba cha wagonjwa wa dharula katika hospitali ya Taifa ya Muhimbili kushuhudia kijana Hamis Salumu akifikishwa kwa ajili ya matibabu.
Wasanii wakimsanidia Kijana Hamis Salum kumtoa nyumbani kwao Temeke jijini Dar es Salaam kwa ajili ya kuelekea hospitali ya Taifa ya Muhimbili, Dar.

WASANII wa fani mbalimbali nchini wameamua kumsaidia kijana Hamisi Salum anayesumbuliwa na tatizo la kuvimba miguu kwa kumpeleka Hospitali ya Taifa Muhimbili ili apate matibabu kwani wanaamini atapona na kutimiza ndoto zake.

Akizungumza jana Machi 12, 2019 kwa niaba ya wasanii wenzake, Msanii maarufu nchini Steve Nyerere amesema wanamatumaini makubwa Hamis atapona, kikubwa ni Watanzania kumuombea kwa Mungu.

Amefafanua Hamis alishapelekwa nchini India kwa matibabu na kisha akarejea nyumbani Tanzania na baadae tena alipelekwa Muhimbili.

Ameongeza wasanii katika kuhakikisha Hamis anapona na kutimiza ndoto zake wameamua kumfuata tena nyumbani kwao na kisha kumpeleka Hospitali ya Taifa Muhimbili akatibiwe.

Steve Nyerere amesema baada ya wao kupaza sauti zao Rais Dk.John Magufuli amesikia na kwa kupitia Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam Paul Makonda wameamua kumsaidia.

"Tunaishukuru Serikali ya Awamu ya Tano chini ya Rais Dk.John Magufuli kwa kujali wanyonge, wasanii tumepaza sauti zetu kuhakikisha Hamis anasaidiwa na Rais wetu amesikia na leo amepokelewa Muhimbili kwa ajili ya kupata matibabu.Pia tunamshukuru Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam kwa jitihada zake za kumsaidia Hamis,"amesema Steve Nyerere.

Amesisitiza kuna kila sababu ya kumsaidia Hamis kwani bado anayo matumaini na vijana wenzake wakiwamo wao wasanii wamejikusanya kumsaidia.

Kuhusu gharama ya matibabu,Steve Nyerere amesema bado hajafahamu gharama halisi itakayotumika katika matibabu ya kijana huyo lakini wanachoamini nafasi ya kupona ipo, hivyo kikubwa ni watanzania kumsaidia.

Ametoa onyo kuwa ugonjwa wa Hamis usitumike vibaya kwani wanaweza kujitokeza watu na wakatoa namba za simu ili wawe wanatumiwa fedha kumbe ni matapeli."Hamis anahitaji kusaidiwa na si kutumika kibiashara."

Na Jacquiline Mrisho - MAELEZO.

Taasisi zinazohusika na Masuala ya TEHAMA nchini zimetakiwa kuendelea kushirikiana katika kuinua vipaji vya wanafunzi wanaosoma masomo yahusuyo TEHAMA na kuviendeleza ili viweze kuondoa changamoto zilizopo katika jamii.

Hayo yamesemwa jana jijini Dodoma na Waziri wa Elimu, Sayansi na Teknolojia, Prof. Joyce Ndalichako alipokuwa akifunga mafunzo na mashindano ya siku ya Kimataifa ya Wasichana na TEHAMA yaliyoandaliwa na Mfuko wa Mawasiliano kwa Wote.

Prof. Ndalichako amesema kuwa nia ya Serikali ni kuona mchango wa Sayansi na Teknolojia ukiongeza ufanisi katika utoaji wa huduma za jamii na kuongeza tija katika uzalishaji hususani katika sekta zinazogusa wananchi moja kwa moja zikiwemo za uchumi, kilimo, mifugo na viwanda.

“Hadi sasa tunaona mafanikio mengi ya matumizi ya TEHAMA ambapo hata wajasiriamali wamekuwa wakikuza biashara zao kupitia mitandao, pia mapato ya serikali yameendelea kuongezeka baada ya kuingia kwenye mfumo wa matumizi ya TEHAMA hivyo kutokana na mafanikio hayo, natoa rai kwa wadau wote wa TEHAMA kushirikiana na Serikali sio tu kuinua vipaji bali na kuviendeleza,” alisema Prof. Ndalichako.

Prof. Ndalichako amefafanua kuwa Serikali imeendelea kutoa msisitizo katika masuala ya TEHAMA ambapo hivi karibuni imetoa jumla ya Kompyuta 300 na Projekta 100 kwa ajili ya kuendeleza mafunzo ya teknolojia, habari na mawasiliano kwenye Vyuo vya Walimu pia zimeanzishiwa maabara za kompyuta kwa baadhi ya shule ili kuendeleza mafunzo ya teknolojia hiyo.

Ametoa rai kwa wanafunzi kuacha kuitumia vibaya TEHAMA na badala yake kusoma masomo hayo kwa kuwa fursa za masomo ya Sayansi na Teknolojia ni nyingi pia zinatoa nafasi kwa watu kujiajiri kwa kutengeneza programu mbalimbali ambazo zinaweza kuuzwa kwa gharama kubwa.

Akiongelea kuhusu mafunzo hayo, Mtendaji Mkuu wa Mfuko wa Mawasiliano kwa Wote, (UCSAF) Mhandisi Peter Ulanga amesema kuwa siku ya Kimataifa ya Wasichana na TEHAMA ilianzishwa kwa lengo la kumuhamasisha mtoto wa kike kuchagua masomo ya TEHAMA na kuweza kupata fursa katika sekta hiyo.

“Kama Taifa tunajiandaa kuelekea katika uchumi wa kati ambao ni uchumi wa viwanda hivyo hatuna namna yoyote ya kuufikia uchumi huo kama hatutowaelimisha wananchi kuhusu masuala ya TEHAMA, Sayansi na Teknolojia, tunaamini kuwa ukimuwezesha mtoto wa kike basi umeelimisha familia na Taifa ndio maana tunawahamasisha kusoma masomo hayo,” alisema Mhandisi Ulanga.

Akiwakilisha wanafunzi wenzie, Khatija Saphy ameishukuru Serikali kwa kutoa motisha hiyo ya wanafunzi wa kike kupenda masomo ya sayansi, ameiomba Serikali kuendelea kutoa fursa hizo mpaka vijijini kwa sababu maeneo hayo yana wanafunzi wengi wabunifu ambao hawapati nafasi hiyo.

Juhudi za Mfuko huo juu ya kuhamasisha watoto wa kike kupenda masomo ya Sayansi zilianza tangu mwaka 2016 ambapo kila mwaka wanafunzi 248 wa kidato cha tatu kutoka mikoa yote ya Tanzania Bara na Visiwani hasa wanaopata daraja la kwanza kwenye mitihani ya kidato cha pili wanapata fursa ya kupata mafunzo ya TEHAMA hasa namna ya kutengeneza mifumo ya komputa.

Vile vile ili kuongeza hamasa, wanafunzi 31 wanapewa medali na wanafunzi sita kati ya hao wanapata zawadi za kikombe, kompyuta mpakato na safari ya kwenda nchini Ethiopia kwa ajili ya kushiriki fainali za mashindano hayo ya watoto wa kike ulimwenguni.

Na Veronica Kazimoto,Dar es Salaam.

Mamlaka ya Mapato Tanzania (TRA) imewahimiza wafanyabiashara na wamiliki wa majengo kote nchini kulipa kodi kwa wakati hususani Kodi ya Mapato awamu ya kwanza, Kodi ya Majengo na Kodi ya Ongezeko la Thamani (VAT) ambapo huu ndio muda muafaka wa kulipa kodi hizo. 

Akizungumza na walipakodi katika Ofisi za TRA Vingunguti jijini Dar es Salaam, Mkurugenzi wa Huduma na Elimu kwa Mlipakodi, Richard Kayombo amesema kodi ya ongezeko la thamani inatakiwa kulipwa ifikapo Machi 20 mwaka huu, kodi ya mapato inatakiwa kulipwa kabla ya tarehe 30 Machi, 2019 wakati mwisho wa kulipa kodi ya majengo ni mwezi Juni, 2019.

“Ninachukua fursa hii kuwahimiza wafanyabiashara na wamiliki wa majengo mliopo hapa na wale watakaosikia taarifa hii kwenye vyombo mbalimbali vya habari kuwahi kulipa kodi hizi kwa wakati ili kuepuka usumbufu na hatimaye kujikuta mnatozwa faini na riba," alisema Kayombo.

Amesema kuwa, viwango vya kodi ya majengo ni shilingi 10,000 kwa nyumba za kawaida, shilingi 50,000 kwa kila sakafu ya ghorofa na shilingi 20,000 kwa nyumba za ghorafa zilizoko vijijini.

"Tunaona serikali imepunguza kiwango cha kodi ya majengo, hivyo hakuna sababu ya watu kuchelewesha na kusubiri dakika za mwisho, tulifanye suala la ulipaji kodi kuwa utamaduni wetu kwa lengo la kuleta maendeleo ya nchi yetu,” alisisitiza Kayombo.

Wakati huo huo, Mkurugenzi Kayombo amewatahadharisha walipakodi kuhusu uwepo wa watu wanaotumia jina la mamlaka hiyo kufanya utapeli kwa kujitambulisha kuwa ni maofisa wa TRA wakidai kwenda kukagua ulipaji wao wa kodi.

“TRA ina utaratibu wake wa kuwasiliana na wafanyabiashara na kuwajulisha siku rasmi ambazo maofisa wetu watakwenda kufanya ukaguzi na unafanyika kwa uwazi bila vitisho na si kwa taratibu nyinginezo,”alisema Kayombo

Ameongeza kuwa, "kama mtu atapigiwa simu au kama una mtu una wasiwasi nae tafadhali toa taarifa kwa ofisi zetu zilizopo karibu nawe au toa taarifa Kituo cha Huduma kwa Wateja namba 0800 780 078 au 0800 750 075 kuanzia saa mbili asubuhi hadi saa moja usiku na utupe namba ya mhusika ili tuweze kufuatilia.

“Pia kuna namba ya Whatsapp ambayo unaweza kutoa taarifa au kuuliza chochote kupitia namba 0744 233 333 ambayo ni maalum kwa ajili ya kutatua changamoto za wananchi na kuwawezesha kulipa kodi kwa wakati,” alisema Kayombo.

Richard Kayombo amesema kuwa, tangu mwezi Desemba mwaka jana, TRA imekuwa ikipata malalamiko kutoka kwa watu tofauti tofauti ambao wamekuwa wakitapeliwa fedha na maofisa feki wanaodai kufanya kazi Mamlaka ya Mapato Tanzania.

*BoT yasema Tanzania imepiga hatua kuongeza malipo ya kieletroniki

Na Said Mwishehe, Globu ya jamii.

VISA na benki 15 nchini Tanzania wamezindua huduma ya kwanza ya malipo ya simu bure ambapo sasa wateja wanaofanya miamala watakuwa na uwezo wa kutuma au kupokea fedha ndani na nje ya nchi bila makato yoyote.

Akizungumza leo Machi 12, 2019 jijini Dar es Salaam, Naibu Gavana wa Benki Kuu ya Tanzania (BoT) Dk. Bernad Kibese amesema uzinduzi huo wa VISA kwenye simu ya mkononi ni hatua nzuri na Tanzania imepiga hatua kubwa katika kuongeza malipo ya kieletroniki na kukuza ushirikishwaji wa fedha.

"Uzinduzi wa Visa kwa njia ya simu ya mkononi unaonesha hatua muhimu katika kuongeza kasi ya uhamaji kutoka fedha taslimu kwenda mfumo wa uchumi wa kidigitali Tanzania ambao ni mzuri kwa jamii zetu,"amesema Dk. Kibese.

Kwa upande wake Rais wa Kampuni ya VISA kwa Sab-Sahara Afrika Aida Diara amesema lengo la kuzinduliwa kwa huduma hiyo ni kuhamasisha uboreshaji huduma na kupunguza makato kwa wateja, wafanyabiashara na sekta ya huduma ya fedha kwa ujumla.

Amesema ili kutumia huduma hiyo , Diara amesema mteja wa benki anatakiwa kupakua programu ya simu ya benki husika, kisha atatafuta Visa kwenye programu na lipia bidhaa na huduma ama kwa kupiga picha alama ya QR au kwa kutumia USSD (Unstructed Supplimentary Service Data)katika sehemu ya biashara ulipo.Huduma hiyo ni ya Visa na inapatikana bure na salama.

"Matumizi ya malipo ya kieletroniki yanaongeza usalama na urahisi barani Afrika huku ikipunguza gharama na kuongeza uwazi katika shughuli za kifedha.Sehemu kubwa ya uchumi wa Afrika na usio rasmi, malipo hufanyika kwa kubadilishana fedha taslimu kwa zaidi ya asilimia 90.

"Inatia moyo kuona Watanzania tayari wanafuata na kukubali teknolojia ya simu ikiwa na usajili wa watu zaidi ya milioni 41 na zaidi ya asilimia 80 ya waliosajiliwa hutumia mtandao kwa kutumia simu za mkononi.Ni ukweli unaofahamika kuwa zaidi ya Watanzania milioni 20 wana usajili au akaunti za fedha kwenye simu.Hizi zote ni ishara za matumaini kwa VISA,"amesema.

Diara amesisitiza lengo la uzinduzi wa Visa kwa njia ya simu nchini Tanzania, lina msingi imara na kwamba wafanyabiashara watafurahia na kuthamini utamaduni huo mpya kabisa wa malipo ya fedha taslimu wa kulipa au kulipwa.

Ameongeza kuwa uhamaji wa kutoa fedha taslimu kwenda kidigitali unapanua wigo wa juu na chini wa thamani .Kwa mteja huduma za fedha za simu zinaleta usalama,urahisi, mazingira mazuri ya malipo kuliko fedha taslimu na inaokoa muda na gharama za safari.

Kuhusu malengo yao kwa upande wa Kusini mwa Jangwa la Sahara, Diara amesema wameendelea kukuza mipango yao, biashara na teknolojia katika ukanda huo kwa kufungua mtandao wao kuunga mkono mahitaji ya taasisi za fedha, wauzaji , waendelezaji na washirika wa FinTech ili kujenga mazingira jumuishi ya kimazingira.

Wakati huo huo Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa VISA Afrika Mashariki Kevin Langley amesema kulingana na jarida la TanzaniaInvest , eneo la biashara ya simu nchini Tanzania inashuhudia ukuaji wa haraka unaofikia zaidi ya Dola za Marekani bilioni 1.6 zilizofanyika kila mwezi mwaka 2018.

Amezitaja baadhi ya benki ambazo zimeshirikiana na VISA kutoa huduma hiyo ni CRDB, NMB, NBC, benki ya Azania, TIB , benki ya Posta, DCB, benki ya Mkombozi, Mufindi Community Bank Limited, Benki ya Watu wa Zanzibar , Benki ya Uchumi,Benki ya Mwalimu,Benki ya Maendeleo na Yetu Microfinance Bank.

          QNET YAONGEZA MAUZO YA MOJA KWA MOJA NA KUIMARISHA SOKO LA KANDA KWA KUTOA BIDHAA MPYA      Cache   Translate Page      
Na mwanandishi Wetu.

Mauzo ya moja kwa moja (maafuru kama network marketing) yanakuwa kwa kasi katika eneo la kusini mwa Jangwa la Sahara ya Afrika na hasa Afrika Mashariki, jambo ambalo kwa kiasi kikubwa limesababishwa na ongezeko la idadi ya watu katika kanda hii pamoja na vijana mahiri ambao kwa mujibu wa taarifa ya Uchambuzi wa Ongezeko la Vijana ya Taasisi ya Maendeleo ya Afrika - sasa Afrika Mashariki ina zaidi ya 45% ya vijana kati ya watu milioni 150 walioko Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda na Uganda. Wengi wa vijana hawa wana elimu, kwa ujumla wana ufahamu wa teknolojia, wepesi kufuata mienendo mipya, wana hamasa ya kuweka juhudi na fikra za ujasiriamali - jambo ambalo ndio sifa ya awali ya mafanikio endelevu katika biashara ya uuzaji wa moja kwa moja.

Kwa wanaoanza, mauzo ya moja kwa moja ni wazo la biashara ya kimataifa na linaelezewa kama 'uuzaji wa bidhaa za matumizi au huduma, kutoka kwa mtu mmoja hadi kwa mtu mwingine, mbali na maeneo ya maduka ya kawaida'. Mtindo huu wa mauzo una zaidi ya miaka 100 na mwanzoni kabisa ulianzia huko USA. Leo, sasa karibu takribani watu milioni 117 wanajihusisha nayo. Kwa mujibu wa ripoti ya mwaka 2018 ya Shirikisho la Chama cha Wauzaji wa moja kwa moja Ulimwenguni.(World Federation of Direct Selling Association (WFDSA), mauzo ya moja kwa moja yalizalisha $190 bilioni na karibu nusu ya mauzo yote yametoka katika masoko yanayochipukia:

https://wfdsa.org/download/advocacy/annual_report/WFDSA-Annual-Report-112718.pdf

Inatosheleza kusema, Afrika ina chukua chini ya 1% ya jumla ya mauzo ya WFDSA lakini wataalamu wanakadiria kwamba soko la Afrika Mashariki linatoa fursa ya kukua kwa wajasiriamali wanaochipukia na hata kwa wale walioajiriwa na wana kiu ya kujipatia kipato cha nyongeza kupitia mauzo ya moja kwa moja.

Katika kanda ambayo mahitaji ya ajira rasmi yanazidi kuwa na ushindani mkubwa na uhaba wa ajira rasmi, mauzo ya moja kwa moja yanatoa njia mbadala za ajira tofauti na ilivyozoeleka kwa wale wanaohitaji kipato cha ziada au mazingira haya ruhusu ajira.

Akiongea hivi karibuni wakati akitoa taarifa kwa vyombo vya habari, Biram Fall, Meneja Mkuu wa QNET kwa kanda ya kusini mwa Jangwa la Sahara alisema "QNET imesaidia kuwawezesha maelfu ya watuAfrika, hasa vijana, katika muongo uliopita. Tunaona ongezeko la kukubalika kwa Mauzo ya Moja kwa Moja, na idadi ya watu zaidi ya milioni 200 katika Afrika Mashariki, Mtindo huu ni mtindo unaobadilisha maisha kwa wengi"

QNET inatoa aina mbalimbali za bidhaa za afya, ustawi na mitindo ya maisha kupitia mifumo yake ya biashara ya mitandao (e-commerce) kwa mamilioni ya wateja katika zaidi ya nchi 100, ikiwa inasaidia watu kuishi maisha bora, na kutoa njia mbadala ya kujipatia kipato kwa yeyote anayehitaji kutumia fursa hii. Kampuni pia ina ofisi na mawakala washirika katika nchi 25 duniani kote, na zaidi ya stoo 50, shughuli za uendeshaji na maduka na wauzaji katika nchi kadhaa duniani. Sasa kwa uwepo wake imara katika Afrika Mashariki, QNET imejidhatiti katika kuendeleza mtindo wa mauzo wa moja kwa moja katika kanda hii.

Kwa kuongezea QNET pia inarudisha faida yake kwa jamii. Baadhi ya wanufaikaji wa Majukumu ya Kampuni kwa jamii ni pamoja na kituo cha kulelea yatima cha Maunga, na Kituo cha kulele yatima cha Newlife Orphans Home ambavyo vimepokea msaada wa chakula na michango kwa miaka ya hivi karibuni.

Kwa mujibu wa Biram Fall Meneja Mkuu wa QNET katika Kanda ya Afrika, Kusini mwa Jangwa la Sahara; "QNET ina nia ya kurudisha kwa jamii, Hii ndio sababu kwa nini tumewekeza kwa kiasi kikubwa katika miradi ya uwajibikaji endelevu ya kampuni kwa jamii katika maeneo mbalimbali ya Afrika kupitia katika mkono wetu wa uwajibikaji kwa jamii” alisema Fall.

QNET Ghana, kwa kupitia RYTHM Foundation, imetoa vifaa maalumu 50 vya kusomea vitabu vya kielektroniki (Kindle e-readers) ambavyo vina vitabu 100 vinavyoendana na tamaduni zao kila kimoja. kwaajili ya wanafunzi wa Nima, eneo lenye watu wa kipato cha chini zaidi ndani ya jiji wa Accra, Ghana. Ilikuwa ni mradi uliofanyika kwa ushirikiano na Worldreader, NGO ya utoaji wa elimu duniani na Achievers Ghana, taasisi ya elimu kwa jamii.

QNET pia inafanya vizuri katika udhamini wa michezo duniani. Baadhi ya ushirikiano mkubwa wa hivi karibuni unajumuisha kuwa Wauzaji wa Moja kwa Moja wa Klabu ya Mpira wa miguu ya Manchester City na Klabu ya mpira wa miguu kwa wanawake ya Manchester city na Shirikisho la Mpira wa Miguu Afrika (CAF) kwaajili ya ligi ya mabingwa ya Total CAF, Kombe la shirikisho la Total CAF na Total CAF Super Cup kwa mwaka 2018 na 2019. Hapo awali washirika wakubwa walikuwa ni pamoja na Formula One, badminton na zaidi, kutokana na imani thabiti ya kampuni kwamba msukumo, shauku na kufanya kazi katika timu iliyopo katika michezo inaendana na ule wa QNET.

Manufaa

Imani thabiti ya QNET kwamba hakuna kinachowezesha zaidi kwa mtu binafsi kama uhuru wa kifedha ambao unatolewa na jitihada katika sekta ya mauzo ya moja kwa moja, na inaamini kwamba watu wa Afrika Mashariki, pamoja na shauku yao na fikra za ujasiriamali, watafurahia kiwango bora cha bidhaa zinazotolewa na QNET na fursa za kibiashara kwaajili ya maendeleo binafsi.

Mauzo ya Moja kwa Moja yanaweza kuwa ni kazi ya kutosheleza kwa wale ambao wanachagua kuchukua fursa hii kama kazi yao kuu au hata kuchukua kama kazi ya ziada kwa sababu inatoa faida za kifedha kutegemeana na muda na juhudi unazoweka katika kukuza biashara yako. Kwa kuongezea, tofauti na biashara zingine za kawaida ambazo zinahitaji mtaji mkubwa, rasilimali na hata uzoefu, biashara ya mauzo ya moja kwa moja inatoa fursa hii ya biashara yenye gharama nafuu kwa kila mmoja anayehitaji kuianzisha, bila kujali kiwango chao cha elimu au uzoefu. Zaidi ya hayo, mafunzo na maelekezo ambayo wafanyabiashara wanaoanza wanapitia (Wawakilishi wa Kujitegemea au IRs kama ilivyo katika QNET) inawapatia ujuzi wa pekee ambao unapelekea kuwa na ujasiri, kujitambua na hatimae ukuaji binafsi ambao unatambua utaalamu wa mtu kama mjasiriamali aliyekamilika.

Huenda, manufaa makubwa zaidi ya mauzo ya moja kwa moja katika masoko yanayoibukia kama Afrika Mashariki ni kwamba mtindo huu unakuwa na athari zaidi hapa kuliko katika masoko yaliyoendelea kwa sababu ya athari za kifedha inayoweza kuleta katika maisha ya watu - kutoa fursa za ujasiriamali kwa wote, bila kujali ujuzi au uzoefu, hivyo hatimae kuchangia katika kupunguza umasikini katika jamii.

Katika mizizi ya QNET kuna falsafa ya RYTHM – Raise Yourself To Help Mankind - ambayo inaongoza jitihada zake zote, na kuendesha kampuni sio tu kubadilisha maisha ya watu duniani kote, lakini pia kushirikiana nao katika kupanua athari hizi.

Kama alivyosema bwana Trevor Kuna, Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa QNET "Tunaamini kwamba mafanikio ya kifedha peke yake hayatoshelezi" Ili tuweze kuleta athari, tunahitaji kuendeleza watu kuwa binadamu bora ili waweze kutumia mafanikio yao kuchangia katika jamii zao"

Changamoto

Kama ilivyo katika biashara nyingine yoyote Sekta ya Mauzo ya Moja kwa moja pia inakabiliana na changamoto. Changamoto ambayo ni kubwa zaidi miongoni mwa hizi ni kuenea kwa mifumo ya pyramid schemes inayoenda kinyume cha sheria ambayo inaonekana kama makampuni halisi ya biashara ya moja kwa moja, ikiwa inaahidi wawekezaji kuwa watajipatia faida nyingi kupita kiasi iwapo wataunganisha watu wengine. Ukweli ni kwamba hawa 'matapeli' wanatengeneza taswira potofu ya Sekta ya Mauzo ya Moja kwa Moja, jambo ambalo linatengeneza kikwazo kwa makampuni halisi kama QNET kusajili washauri wa kibiashara kuendesha biashara zao halisi na halali. Wakati inapokabiliana na hali kama hizo, QNET inasema inatatua tatizo kwa kuelimisha umma kuwa makini na 'matapeli' kama hao na kuwahimiza kuthibitisha uhalali wa kampuni yeyote kufuatana na kutii kwake kwa kanuni, taratibu na sheria zilizowekwa na bodi zinazosimamia na mamlaka zinazohusika.

Mpaka kufikia hapa, maelezo kutoka QNET yanasema: "Kampuni yoyote inayokuahidi njia rahisi ya kuwa tajiri inapaswa kuangaliwa kwa tahadhari. QNET kwa mfano, ina maelezo ya kutosha ya mapato yanayopatikana kwenye tovuti yake na vifaa vya mauzo. Kampuni za Masoko ya mtandao zinatoa bidhaa zenye ubora au huduma tofauti na mifumo ya pyramid schemes ambayo haina bidhaa halali au huduma. Kampuni bora ya Masoko ya mtandao huwa inatenga kiwango kikubwa cha rasilimali kwaajili ya utafiti na uendelezaji, kutengeneza bidhaa zenye ubora ambazo zina matumizi halisi kwa watu wakati mifumo ya pyramids scheme huwa haifanyi hivyo"

Inaongeza: "Kampuni za masoko ya mtandano yana sera na taratibu sahihi, pamoja na kanuni za maadili za masoko. Kamuni yoyote halisi ya masoko ya mtandao ina lengo la kufikia ukuaji endelevu kwa kukuza utamanuni wa masoko ya kimaadili. QNET inaweka msisitizo mkubwa katika kanuni za maadili za utendaji kwa wawakilishi wake wa kujitegemea (IRs) na kuwapatia miongozo ya kina kuhusu masoko ya kitaalamu pamoja na sera na taratibu".

Kusisitiza uhalali wa mauzo ya moja kwa moja, utafiti wa hivi karibuni uliofanywa na Taasisi ya Ngazi Mbalimbali za Masoko ya India (India Multi-Level Marketing Institute) ilichunguza uendeshaji wa aina mbalimbali kama vile Avon, Mary Kay, QNET na Tupperware na kubaini kwamba 'sio mifumo ya scheme) ya aina ya piramidi au aina nyingine yoyote.

Changamoto nyingine inayoikabili sekta ya mauzo ya moja kwa moja ni ujuzi ambao haujaendelezwa hasa kwa wale ambao wamechukua fursa hii hivi karibuni. QNET inasema kwamba inatatua changamoto kwa kuweka msisitizo mkubwa sana katika mafunzo na elimu kwa IRs. Mafunzo hayo sio tu kamba yanaendeleza ujuzi wao wa kitaalamu lakini pia unalenga katika ukuaji na maendeleo binafsi.

Ni wazi kwamba, kufikisha bidhaa katika maeneo ya vijijini na maeneo ya mbali ni kikwazo kingine lakini QNET imeweza kutatua hili kwa kuajiri IRs ambao wanatengeneza mtandao ndani ya jamii zao kwaajili ya kurahisisha upatikanaji na pia kuwasaidia kuagiza mzigo mkubwa kwa punguzo kwa lengo la kutoa mzigo, hivyo kuhakikisha usambazaji endelevu wa bidhaa.

Kuingia kwa QNET katika soko la kanda inaweza pia kukabikiana na ushindani kutoka kwa kampuni ambazo tayari zilishaanzishwa za bidhaa za reja reja na nembo za kimataifa lakini mtindo wake wa pekee wa usambazaji utaiweka QNET tofauti na kutengeneza njia ya mafanikio.

Wanawake nchi wameaswa kuendelea kufanya kazi kwa bidii pamoja na kujituma ili kuleta maendeleo kwa ajili ya familia zao na taifa kwa ujumla licha ya changamoto ambazo wanakubana nazo.

Wito huo umetolewa jijini Dar es Salaam mwishoni mwa wiki na Mwanzilishi na Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa Taasisi ya Tanzania Saccos for Women Enterpreneurs (Taswe – SACCOS) Anna Matinde wakati akiongea na wanawake wanafanyi kazi wa Airtel Tanzania wakati wa maadhimisho ya siku ya wanawake duniani ambayo yaliandaliwa na kampuni hiyo.

Imekuwa ni kawaida kwa wanawake kulalamika kwamba hawapewi fursa sawa na wanaume ili kuonyesha uwezo wao. Na hii ni popote unapoenda. Wanawake wanasema wanaume ndio wenye furs azote na wao wamekuwa ni kama kivuli kwao. Mimi nataka kuwaambia huo sio ukweli. Sisi wanawake tunao nguvu na fursa kwa wanaume ya kuweza kufanya hata Zaidi yao. Tunachotakiwa kufanya ni kujiamini na kufanya kazi kwa bidii ili kujijengea heshima kwenye jamii yetu, alisema Matinde.

Matinde alisema kauli mbiu ya siku ya wanawake duniani mwaka huu ni #BalanceforBetter’ ikimaanisha kwamba kuwaza kwa mbali na kujiandaa kwa mafanikio. Ni muhimu kutambua kwamba wanawake tunaitaji kujikwamua kiuchumu na kuwa na uhuru wa kifedha. Vile vile tunatakiwa kufanya kazi kwa bidii, nyumbani na sehemu zetu za kazi. Lakini muhimu tunatakiwa kuwa wajasiriamali. Hatuwezi kuendelea kuishi kwa kutengemea mishahara yetu au waume zetu. Ni muhimu kuangalia namna ya kujibadilisha fikra zetu kwenye ujasiriamali ili kuwa na uhuru wa kiuchumi, alisema Matinde.

Mimi nina uzoefu wa kutosha wa kuajiriwa na pia wa ujasiriamali. Wakati naanza maisha ya ujasiriamali hakuna mtu yeyote aliyekuwa anafikiria kama naweza kuwa hapa nilipo leo. Nawaomba mtumie kila dakika yenu kufanya kitu ambacho kitaweza kuwaingizia kipato cha ziada. Ni lazima muelewe ya kwamba wanawake wanayo nguvu ya kupata chochote unachohitaji kama tu mtakuwa na malengo, kufanya kazi kwa bidii na kuwa na mawazo chanya, aliongeza Matinde.

Akiongea kwenye maadhimisho hayo, Mkurugenzi wa Mawasiliano Airtel Tanzania Beatrice Singano aliwaaza wanawake kujishusha na kuendeleo kufanya kazi kwa moyo wote na bidii ili kuleta mafanikio.

Natoa wito kwa wanawake wote kutokata tamaa. Tunaweza kupata changamoto za hapa na pale lakini cha muhimu ni kujitambua na kuendelea kung’aa. Ni lazima muwe na mawazo chanya lakini muhimu Zaidi ni kuendelea kumuomba Mungu atuongoze na kila jamba, Singano alisema.

Hii ni siku ya wanawake na kusherekea ni kitu cha muhimu. Lakini ni lazima kutafakari na kujiweka juu zaidi. Sisi ni watu muhimu kwenye jamii na ni vizuri kuelewa tunayo fursa za kimaisha sawa na wanaume. Tufanye kazi kwa bidii, tujiheshimu na tutumie muda wetu vizuri ili tufanikiwe, aliongeza Singano.

It seems this site is pretty well-dominated with information regarding gay life in W. Africa. Perhaps, we can start more dialogue on similar topics in E. Africa. I lived in Tanzania when I was young and returned there for work just after university. Now, I am back in the US after completing my graduate degrees, but continue to work in E. Africa. I know Uganda is a very bleak scene nowadays for gays and lesbians. But, there is a growing advocacy for gay and lesbians especially in the capital. There are opportunities to meet gay men in some locales (ie. Matteo's after 10pm on Fri/Sat) in Kampala now especially near Makerere University (ie. T Cozy bar on Sunday nights). I will be happy to share a few experiences with others interested and who hopefully can share some as well.

          Safari i Tanzania      Cache   Translate Page      
Med en dags kortare bestigning av Kilimanjaro än planerat fanns det tid över för safari i Tanzania. Billigt vore fel ord, men det var värt pengarna, även om vi bara hann med Tarangire nationalpark och Ngorongoro-kratern, kanske en av världens vackraste platser. Några foton och filmsnuttar nedan.
Nogorongoro-kraterns cirka 600 meter ner.
Safari i Tanzania är förstås enormt mycket större än bestigning av Kilimanjaro, och ännu dyrare. Enbart Ngorongoro ska få 500 000 besökare om året, dvs runt 1500 per dag.

Då vi inte hade bokat något i förväg fick vi ett pris om 260 USD per person av hotellet, men bestämde oss för 230 USD per person via vår bergsguide, som också hängde på då han hade klättrat Kilimanjaro så många gånger att han fått stipendium för att vidareutbilda sig till certifierad safariguide.

Bara Ngorongoro drar alltså in säg 250*500000*9=1 125 000 000 kronor, eller över en miljard kronor i den lokala ekonomin årligen. Multiplicera det med fyra dagar, så ser man hur mycket denna del av turismen tillför landet. Inte konstigt att man är noga med att bevara de vilda djuren. Här är de så hatade flygresorna en förutsättning för att bestånden av de stora afrikanska vilda djuren ska fortleva.

Priset inkluderar förstås alla avgifter och tillstånd, lunchpaket och själva transporten från Moshi till nationalparkerna vid Arusha och vidare, samt övernattning med helpension på någon form av adventure lodge (som visade sig vara kristna kultister, vilket var en spännande uppelvelse), dock utan alkohol inkluderat i priset, men väl fruktjuicer. Med två dagar hann vi inte med Serengeti, och fick bara fyra av big five då vi inte lyckades se leopard, men väl lejon, noshörning, elefant och vattenbuffel.

230 USD per person landar alltså på nästan 10 000:- SEK om dagen till chaufför och inblandade företag. Till detta kom förstås dricks direkt till chauffören. Ett fullt safari i området ska väl vara åtminstone 4 - 5 dagar, så man hinner med uppvärmning i Tarangire, vidare till Ngorongoro, sedan Serengeti och slutligen Victoriasjön. Man kan förstås betala ännu mer per dag och passagerare, beroende på val av boende och service, för att inte tala om vad det kostar att göra delar av safarit till fots. Möjligt att det går att få billigare om man delar en bil med andra, men nu fick vi en egen Landcruiser för de fyra av oss som valde denna safarilösning. Kilimanjaroexpeditionens femte deltagare for vidare till Zanzibar, för att återkomma senare på Safari.

Vi fick nöja oss med Tarangire och Ngorongoro, vilket var ett oplanerat bonus på besöket i Tanzania.

Jag ska inte tråka ut er med allt för mycket foton den här gången, eftersom foton inte kan göra uppelevelsen rättvisa.
Savannen i Tarangire.
Initialt var det rätt glest mellan djuren, som man bara såg på avstånd i Tarangire, men sedan lättade det.
Elefanter i Tarangire.
Det visar sig att när man väl är inne in nationalparken är det så tätt mellan djuren att det nästan framstår som ett skämt. Och man fick närkontakt med de flesta arter, bara någon meter från safaribilen.
Till slut inföll nästan en sorts utmattningssyndrom av att ha sett så många djur, så nära inpå fria i sin naturliga biotop.

Så till slut blev det avfärd till övernattningen och de kristna kultisterna. Mer om det i ett separat inlägg om boendestandard.

Tarangire var dock bara en lite uppvärmning visade det sig när man kom till Ngorongoro. Den platta kratern och dess mestadels frånvaro av träd gjorde att man kunde se 10 000-tals djur samtidigt, av kraterns runt 70 000 stora djur. 
Två lejonhonor chillar invid vägen i Ngorongoro.
Det enda vi inte fick se här av big five var leopard, som höll sig undan för stunden. Allt annat kom man mycket nära, utom noshörningarna som höll sig en bit ifrån lervägen när vi såg dem.
På våra breddgrader sätts populationen av vilda djur utifrån vinterbeståndet. Hur mycket djur kan vår natur föda vintertid? Våra tamdjur är förstås fler, eftersom vi buffrar upp sommarens solenergi i form av grovfoder för vinterhalvåret. Men det är inte särskilt tätt mellan älgarna. Kanske ett djur per kvadratkilometer.
Gnu is not Unix. Här med nyfödda kalvar.
I Ngorongorokratern, resterna av en exploderad supervulkan, finns en permanent population på 70 000 vilda större däggdjur, på en krateryta om 264 kvadratkilometer. Det handlar alltså om otroliga 265 större däggdjur per kvadratkilometer.

Då vandrar djuren ändå runt, så delar av kratern är vid ett givet tillfälle rätt öde.

Tillväxten av biomassa här nere på blott tre grader söder om ekvatorn, vid besöket i februari i princip med solen rakt upp, är enorm. Den höga höjden säkerställer också riklig nederbörd. Och utan egentlig vinter, bara två regnsäsonger och två sommarsäsonger, så sker tillväxten året runt. Innan man ser det själv är det svårt att förstå tätheten mellan de vilda djuren på savannerna.

Att alls se ett större rovdjur i Sverige - järv, lo, björn, varg eller örn - är det många som aldrig gör under sin livstid. I Ngorongorokratern bor det runt 100 lejon i olika åldrar, dvs en per tre kvadratkilometer. Vi såg åtminstone tre flockar, plus enstaka hannar utan egen flock.

Samlad bedömning är att safari i Tanzania absolut är värt pengarna, och Ngorongoro är en enormt vacker plats. Då ska ändå Serengeti klå Ngorongoro vad gäller djurliv. Och man kan förvänta sig att få se rovdjuren i sitt naturliga biotop, något som överraskade mig som skandinav.

Ska du nu inte klättra Kilimanjaro med egen utrustning och vill spara på vikten, ta med en egen riktig kamera med lämpliga teleobjektiv. Alla mina foton och filmer är därav bara tagna med en iPhone X, och jag har aldrig saknat en riktig kamera så mycket. Dock kom man ju ändå så nära att det spelade mindre roll, men exempelvis rovdjur som kalasade på en nyfödd gnukalv var för långt bort för att bli meningsfullt med en smartphone som enda kamera. Filmerna dock i HD, så de kan blåsas upp på helskärm.
