MAJAMBAZI YAZIDI KUTAMBA JIJINI ARUSHA….

Taarifa hizo zilitabananisha kuwa majambazi  yenye sila yalivamia na kuuwa mpita-njia, jambo ambalo linazidi kuonyesha kuwa kwa sasa majambazi yamewazidi nguvu polisi hususan katika jiji la Arusha.

 Sehemu inaposadikiwa kufanyika uhalifu huo ni katika ya jiji la Arusha inayo julikana kama mnara wa saa. Sehemu hiyo kwa kawaida kuna ulinzi mkali na mara zote gari za doria huwa zimeigesha maeneo hayo achilia mbali polisi ambao hulinda mabenki ya sehemu hizo.

M2S kwa nia njema tu, tunahoji je hayo yamewezekana vipi kutokea mbele ya macho ya wana usalama?

SAFARI YA MWISHO YA NELSON R. MANDELA 1918-2013

Mpigania haki za weusi na alama kuu ya udhalimu wa mfumo wa Ubaguzi wa Rangi nchini Afrika ya Kusini Mzee Nelson ‘Madiba’ Mandela amefariki dunia baada yakuugua kwa muda mrefu kufuatia maambukizi ya mapafu kushindwa kutengemaa kwa muda sasa. Mzee Mandela ambaye kwa miezi kadhaa sasa amekuwa akisumbuliwa na matatizo ya maambukizi kwenye mapafu yake amefariki dunia nyumbani kwake ambako alipelekewa toka hospitali ya Moyo ya Mediclinic mjini Pretoria, chini Afrika ya Kusini baada ya familia yake kuomba kufanya hivyo. Mzee Mandela alipelekwa hospitali hiyo Jumamosi ya tarehe 8 Juni ikiwa ni baada ya kuanza tena kusumbuliwa na mapafu; miaka ya themanini akiwa kifungoni Mandela alipata ugonjwa wa Kifua Kifuu (TB) kutokana na kazi ngumu ya kupasua mawe kama sehemu ya adhabu ya kifungo chake. Aliondoka hospitali hapo Septemba 1, 2012 baada ya familia kuomba hivyo na kuahidiwa huduma nzuri ya kitabibu nyumbani. Wakati anaondoka hospitali hali yake bado ilikuwa ya utulivu kidogo lakini isiyo na mabadiliko makubwa. Mipango ya mazishi ambayo inatarajiwa kuvuta maelfu ya watu na mamia ya viongozi wa kimataifa inatarajiwa kutangazwa punde.

Bw. Mandela (95) alikuwa Rais wa kwanza mweusi wa Afrika ya Kusini kufuatia kutokomezwa kwa utawala wa ubaguzi wa rangi uliofanywa na Makaburu kwa karibu miaka 400 ambapo watu weupe walijipa haki ya kuwatawala na kuwabagua watu weusi. Kabla ya kuwa Rais wa Afrika ya Kusini Mzee Mandela alitumikia kifungo cha miaka 27 jela ambako pamoja na kazi ngumu aliendelea kuongoza kundi la wapigania haki wengine kudai usawa, utu, na umoja wa Waafrika ya Kusini. Mandela alikuwa ni mfungwa maarufu zaidi wa kisiasa duniani ambapo harakati za kutaka afunguliwe zilipiganwa na wanaharakati sehemu mbalimbali duniani licha ya upinzani wa Serikali ya Afrika ya Kusini na Baadhi ya Nchi za Kimagharibi ambazo zilimuona Mandela kama Ghaidi na mchochezi.

Maisha yake ya awali

Mzee Mandela alizaliwa Julai 18, 1918 katika kijiji cha Mvezo mji mdogo wa Umtatu Jimbo la Cape. Akiwa ni mmoja wa watoto wa Mzee Gadla Henry Mphakanyiswa Nelson Mandela alikulia kwa mamake – mke wa tatu wa Mzee Gadla – katika kijiji cha Qunu ambako pamoja na shughuli nyingine za nyumbani alikuwa mvulana mchunga ng’ombe.

Baadaye alianza masomo ya shule ya msingi na baadaye Sekondari ambapo aliamini kuwa alikuwa anaandaliwa kwa ajili ya utumishi katika nyumba ya Chifu wa Kabila lake la Xhosa kama mshauri. Hata hivyo baada ya kurudi nyumbani kutoka masomoni mwaka 1940 alikuta kuwa Chifu Jongintaba ameandaa ndoa Nelson Mandela pamoja mtoto wa kiume wa Chifu huyo aitwaye Justice walitoroka nyumbani na kwenda kwenye Jiji la Johannesburg. Alifanya kazi kama mlinzi katika Kampuni ya Madini ya Crown lakini alifukuzwa kazi na msimamizi wa pale baada ya kugunduliwa kuwa alikuwa ametoroka kwao.

Kuingia Katika Siasa

Alipokuwa akiishi kwa muda na mmoja wa binamu zake Nelson Mandela alitambulishwa kwa mwanaharakati wa chama cha ANC Bw. Walter Sisulu ambaye baadaye walifungwa pamoja – Sisulu akitumikia miaka 25 jela. Walter Sisulu alimtafutia kazi ya ukarani katika kampuni ya Wanasheria ya Witkin, Sidelsky and Edelman. Akiwa hapo alifanya masomo ya elimu kwa njia ya Posta ambapo alikuwa anatafuta shahada yake ya kwanza. Mwaka 1943 alihitimu masomo yake ya sheria na kuanza kazi kama Mwanasheria badala ya kurudi kijijini kutumika kwa Chifu. Akiwa ameanza kazi kama Mwanasheria Mandela aliendelea kuwa chini ya uangalizi wa Walter Sisulu ambaye alikuwa anaendeleza harakati za kudai haki za weusi. Akikutana mara kwa mara na wanaharakati wengine nyumbani kwa Sisulu Mandela alikutana tena na rafiki yake Oliver Tambo. Ilikuwa ni katika mikutano hiyo alikutana na mwanamama Evelyn Mase ambaye walianza uhusiano wa mapenzi na baadaye kufunga ndoa yake ya kwanza Oktoba , 1944. Walijaliwa watoto wawili wa kiume na wa kike; wa kiume Madiba “Thembi” Thembikile alizaliwa Februari 1946 na wa kike Makaziwe alizaliwa mwaka uliofuatia lakini alifariki miezi tisa baadaye baada ya kupata maambukizi ya ugonjwa uti wa mgongo.


Mandela na mtoto wake wa kwanza wa kiume Themi

Baada ya uchaguzi wa 1948 ambapo watu weupe peke yao walishirikia vyama vya Herenigle Nacionale Party na Afrikaner Party viliungana na kuunda chama cha National Party ambacho kilikuwa na sera ya wazi ya ubaguzi na kikapisha na kupanua ukali wa sera ya ubaguzi kupitia sheria mbalimbali za ubaguzi wa rangi. Serikali ya Kikaburu ikaja na mojawapo ya Sheria kali kabisa za kupambana na wanaharakati ambayo inajulikana kama Ukandamizaji wa Ukomunisti ya 1950. Sheria hii ilikuwa inashughulikia karibu mambo yote yanayohusiana na kuipinga serikali na ikiwahusu watu wote. Migongano kati ya ANC na Serikali ya Kikaburu ilianza kupamba moto.

Mwaka 1952 Nelson Mandela alikamatwa na utawala wa Makaburu kwa kile kilichodaiwa kujihusisha na vitendo vya Kikomunisti chini ya ile sheria iliyopitishwa miaka michache nyume. Alihukumiwa miezi tisa jela na “kazi ngumu” lakini utekelezaji wa hukumu hiyo ulisitishwa kwa miaka miwili. Lakini mwezi Disemba mwaka huo huo Mandela alipigwa marufuku kuzungumza na zaidi ya mtu mmoja kwa miezi sita. Akiwa kiongozi wa ANC hii ilimaanisha kuwa asingeweza kufanya mikutano na wanachama wake. Mwaka 1953 Mandela na rafiki yake Oliver Tambo walifungua kampuni yao ya Wanasheria katika Jiji la Johannesburg na kuifanya kuwa kampuni ya kwanza ya Wanasheria Weusi katika Afrika ya Kusini. Walijishughulisha na malalamiko mbalimbali ya wananchi hasa yanayohusiana na ukatili wa kisiasa. Hata hivyo serikali ikitumia sheria nyingine ikalazimisha kufungwa kwa ofisi hiyo iliyokuwa na wateja wengi na kuihamisha sehemu nyingine ambapo ilikuwa ni vigumu kwa wateja kuifikia. Mwaka 1955 Mandela na wenzake walishirikiana kuandaa kongamano kubwa la watu wa Afrika Kusini ambao wanaamini katika taifa moja la watu wamoja japo wanatoka katika makabila na rangi mbalimbali. Katika kongamano hili kulisainiwa kile kinachoaminika kama mojawapo ya nyaraka muhimu kabisa za kutetea usawa na utu wa watu wote ambayo ilijulikana kama Freedom Charter. Kufananisha hii ni sawasawa na Azimio la Uhuru la Marekani au ile nyaraka ya Waingereza ya Magna Carta. Kwa Tanzania tunaweza kufananisha kabisa na Azimio la Arusha. Freedom Charter ilitengeneza ramani ya kujenga taifa la watu walio huru na sawa katika Afrika Kusini.

Hata hivyo kwa upande wa familia ndoa yake kwa Evelyn ilianza kuwa matatani. Kulikuwa na tuhuma za kukosa uaminifu ambapo alidaiwa kuwa na mahusiano ya mapenzi na baadhi ya kina dada wa ANC. Evelyn alijaribu watengane lakini pamoja na jitihahada mbalimbali za kupatana Nelson Mandela aliamua kupeana talaka na mke wake wa kwanza mwezi Machi 1958. Walikuwa wamejaliwa mtoto mwingine wa kike. Wakati huo wa mchakato wa talaka Nelson Mandela alikuwa ameanza mahusiano na Winnie Madikizela mmoja wa wafanyakazi wa mambo ya kijamii. Walifunga ndoa Mwezi Juni 1958.


Ndoa ya Madiba na Winnie

 

Migogoro na utawala wa kikaburu haikukoma. Na Mandela alizidi kuwa na siasa za mrengo wa kushoto. Njia za amani za kupata mabadiliko ya kisiasa zilionekana kutozaa matunda; Mandela na wenzake walianza kuamini katika njia za kimapinduzi na za kutumia silaha. Hili lilimletea matatizo zaidi na watawala wa Kikaburu. Hatimaye Augusti 2, 1962 Nelson Mandela alikamatwa na utawala wa Makaburu na kushtakiwa kwa kuchochea mgomo wa wafanyakazi na kuondoka nchini bila kibali. Mandela alijiwakilishi mwenyewe mbele ya mahakama huku akitumia nafasi hiyo kutoa hutuba motomoto za kisiasa dhidi ya utawala wa kibaguzi wa makaburu. Alikutwa na hatia na kuamuriwa kufungwa miaka mitano jela; wakati anatoka mahakamani mashabiki wake walisimama pembeni na kuimba wimbo wa Mungu Ibariki Afrika (Nkosi Sikeleli Afrika).

Kesi ya Rivonia

Matatizo yake hayakufikia mwisho. Julai 11, 1963 polisi walivamia shamba la Lilliesleaf – mji mdogo wa Rivonia nje ya Johannesburg) ambapo pamoja na vitu mbalimbali waliamini walikuta ushahidi wa kutosha kumhusisha Mandela na mipango ya kuipindua serikali. Mandela na wenzake walitumia shamba hili kama sehemu yao ya kujificha huku Mandela akijifanya ni mtunza bustani. Kesi hii ilikuwa motomoto kwani Mandela na wenzake walishtakiwa kwa makosa manne yakiwa ni ya uhujumu wa miundo mbinu ya nchi (vitendo zaidi ya 200) pamoja na kutaka kupindua serikali; serikali ilikuwa inapendekeza kuwa wakikutwa na hatia basi wahukumiwe kifo. Mashahidi wengi wa serikali waliitwa pamoja na lundo la ushahidi wa picha na nyaraka kuthibitisha mashtaka ya serikali dhidi ya Mandela na
wenzake tisa.


Mara baada ya kuachiliwa mwaka 1990 Mandela alihakikisha anamtembelea rafiki yake mpenzi Oliver Tambo aliyekuwa anapata matibabu Sweden

Wengine ambao walikuwa pamoja na Mandela ni pamoja na Walter Sisulu na Govan Mbeki (baba yake na Thabo Mbeki aliyemrithi Mandela kama Rais wa Afrika ya Kusini). Ilikuwa ni katika kesi hii ambapo Mandela alitoa mojawapo ya hotuba zinazosifiwa zaidi duniani na ambayo inasomwa na wanafunzi wa siasa sehemu mbalimbali duniani kwani ilielezea falsafa ya kupinga ubaguzi wa rangi. Inafanana sana kimaudhui na barua ya Martin Luther King Jr akiwa katika jela ya Birmingham huko Alabama ambapo alielezea kwanini alikuwa anapinga kubaguliwa na kwanini kila mpenda haki duniani anapaswa kufanya hivyo hivyo. Katika hotuba hii inayojulikana kama “I’m Prepared to Die Speech” Mandela alisema kuwa alikuwa anapigania haki ya watu weusi kuheshimiwa kutokana na utu wao na kuwa wao ni sawa kama binadamu wengine.

Alisema kuwa hapiganii haki ya weusi kuwabagua weupe bali haki ya watu wote kuishi kwa pamoja kama watu wa jamii moja. Mandela alisema “This is the struggle of the African people, inspired by their own suffering and experience. It is a struggle for the right to live. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society, in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunity. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and achieve. But, if needs be, my Lord, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die”. Yaani, “Haya ni mapambano ya watu wa Afrika yaliyotokana na mateso na mang’amuzi yao wenyewe. Haya ni mapambano ya kupigania haki ya kuishi. Nimelifurahia wazo la jamii ya kidemokrasia na huru, ambapo watu wote wanaishi katika amani na haki sawa. Ni wazo ambalo ninatumaini kuishi kwa ajili yake na kulitimiza. Lakini, ikibidi, mheshimiwa, ni wazo ambalo

nimejiandaa kufa kwa ajili yake”


Baada ya kuhukumiwa kifungo cha maisha Mandela na wenzake wakitoka Mahakamani

 

Pamoja na utetezi wake wote timu ya Mandela ilishindwa kesi hii na wote wakakutwa na hatia isipokuwa mmoja. Kwa vile tayari kulikuwa na mwamko sehemu mbalimbali duniani kupinga adhabu ya kifo Mahakama ikawaamuru Mandela na wenzake kutumikia kifungo cha maisha na huo ndio ukawa mwanzo wa kifungo cha karibu miaka 30 jela (ikumbukwe kesi hii ilipoanza Mandela tayari alikuwa anatumikia ile hukumu ya miaka 5 jela). Mandela na wenzake walipelekwa katika jela ya Kisiwa cha Robben ambako pale peke yake alitumikia miaka 18. Maisha kifungoni Kisiwa cha Robben na kwingine


Kisiwa cha Robben ambako Mandela alifungwa kwa miaka 18

Mandela na wenzake walihukumiwa kazi ngumu vile vile na kweli ilikuwa ni kazi ngumu kwani pamoja na kuponda mawe walipewa baadaye kazi ya kuponda mawe ya chokaa. Kwa muda alikatazwa kuvaa miwani ya jua kitua mbacho kilimsababishia ubovu wa macho ambao hakuweza kupona kabisa. Akiwa kifungoni mamake alimtembelea mwaka 1968 na siku chache baadaye alifariki dunia, mwaka uliofuata mtoto wake wa kwanza Thembi alifariki katika ajali ya gari – Mandela hakuruhiswa kuhudhuria mazishi yao wote hao. Maisha kifungoni yalikuwa magumu kwa kila kipimo licha ya maisha baada ya miaka kuanza kuboreshwa kidogo kufuatia maandamano na harakati za kutaka Mandela afunguliwe. Utawala wa makaburu hawakusikia la mtu yeyote hasa kwa vile walikuwa wanaushirika wa karibu na serikali ya Marekani na Uingereza ambazo zote zilimuona Mandela kama Mkomunisti na Ghaidi.


Mwaka 1966 gerezani Mandela anaonekana akiitia viraka nguo yake ya jela

Mandela alitumikia pia katika magereza ya Pollsmoor huko Cape Town na Gereza kati ya 1982 hadi 1988 na baadaye gereza la Victor Verster 1988-1990 ambako kwa kiasi kikubwa alikuwa amepewa maisha ya unafuu (hapa chini akiwa na mpishi na huduma mbalimbali) kulinganisha na alivyoishi katika gereza la Kisiwa cha Robben.


Akiwa gereza la Victor Verster alipewa nyumba na mtumishi. Hapa pichani na aliyekuwa mpishi wake kwenye gereza hilo.

Ikumbukwe miaka aliyokuwa Robben ndiyo ilikuwa migumu zaidi kwani hakuruhusiwa kutembelewa na watu wengi na alipewa nafasi ya kutembelewa na kuandikwa barua moja tu kila baada ya miezi sita. Katika magereza hayo mengine Mandela alipata unafuu kidogo.

Kuingia kwa F. W. de Clerk na kuachiliwa kwa Mandela

Chini ya utawala wa Pieter Botha Afrika ya Kusini ilizama katika siasa na sera za ubaguzi wa rangi. Botha aliwachukia weusi na aliamini kabisa kuwa utawala wa kikaburu utadumu kwa muda mrefu. Botha anaweza kabisa kufananishwa na aliyekuwa Gavana wa Alabama George Wallace ambaye aliapa kuwa “ubaguzi sasa, ubaguzi kesho, ubaguzi milele”; japo aliishi na kuona Ubaguzi ukifumuliwa katika jimbo lake na katika Marekani sera hizo zikitupwa katika mifumo ya utawala. Hata hivyo alikuwa ni F. W. de Clerk mwanasiasa mwingine mzungu ambaye licha ya kutoka katika chama kilichoamini katika ubaguzi wa rangi yeye mwenyewe alijikuta akiukataa kifikra kwani aliona hauwezi kudumu.

Kwa muda hivi tangu 1988 Mandela alikuwa na mazungumzo ya siri na baadhi ya viongozi wa serikali juu ya masharti ya yeye na wenzake kuachiwa huru na mwelekeo wa siasa za Afrika ya Kusini. Mazungumzo hayo yalikumbana na vikwazo vingi sana ikiwemo kutokukubaliana kwa masharti – kwa mfano serikali ilitaka Mandela asijiingize kwenye siasa na kuwa wasilazimishwe kuwa na utawala wa wengi (majority rule) masharti ambaye Mandela aliyakataa.


Baada ya Mdahalo mzito ambao de Klerk alionekana kushinda; Mandela alipompa mkono alionekana kushangaza umati wa watu na kujenga daraja kati yake na de Klerk kwa maisha.

Matokeo yake ni kuwa Mandela na wenzake waliachiliwa huru na utawala lwa De Clerk Februari 2, 1990 na kuleta furaha wanaharakati pote duniani. Ikumbukwe kwa Tanzania wimbo maarufu wa “Kilicho cha Wapenda Haki Duniani Kote” ulivuma sana wakati huo katika kuhamasisha Mandela na wenzake waachiliwe huru. Baada ya kuachiliwa huru muda mrefu ulitumika kufanya mazungumzo na utawala wa kikaburu kuhusiana na mwelekeo wa siasa za Afrika ya Kusini na hata kuelekea uchaguzi mkuu. Hata hivyo kutokana na matukio mbalimbali ya vurugu na mauaji ya kisiasa yaliyokuwa yanaendelea na hata migongano ya chama cha Inkatha cha Chifu Buthelezi Mandela aliona hana jinsi isipokuwa kufikia makubaliano ya msingi. Baadhi ya makubaliano hayo yalihusisha kufunguliwa kwa wafungwa wa kisiasa, kuitishwa kwa uchaguzi mkuu, kuwa na Katiba ya Mpito na kuhakikishia kuwa kazi za weupe hazitafukuzwa kama ukiingia utawala wa weusi.Mandela na de Klerk walitunukiwa tuzo ya Nishani ya Amani ya Nobel mwaka 1993

Hatimaye Afrika ya Kusini ikaingia katika uchaguzi mkuu wa kwanza huru na wawananchi wote mwaka 1994, Aprili 27. Kampeni ilikuwa na vurugu za hapa na pale lakini kwa ujumla wananchi wa Afrika ya Kusini hasa weusi walijikuta kwa mara ya kwanza wanapiga kura kumchagua kiongozi wanayemtaka. Mandela akiongoza ANC walishinda asilimia 62 ya kura na kushindwa kupata theluthi mbili ambayo ingewawezesha kuweza kubadili Katiba. Serikali yake ilikuwa ni ya umoja wa kitaifa ikitegemea kwa kiasi kikubwa baadhi ya maofis waliokuwa katika utawala wa kikaburu. De Clerk alikuwa Makamu wa kwanza wa Rais na Thabo Mbeki akiwa Makamu wa Pili wa Rais. Mandela (katikati) akiwa na Makamu wake wawili

Mandela alishaeleza toka awali kuwa atagombea kipindi kimoja tu na ndivyo alivyofanya na baadaye kumwachia Thabo Mbeki kama Rais wa Afrika ya Kusini. Baada ya kustaafu siasa Mandela aliamua kujishughulisha na program mbalimbali za ndani ya Afrika ya Kusini na kutembelea baadhi ya nchi. Hata hivyo udhaifu wa mwili uliotokana na magonjwa na uzee ulimzidia na kumfanya apunguze safari za nje. Kwa mara ya mwisho alionekana katika shughuli za hadhara katika mashindano ya Kombe la Dunia mwaka 2010 ambayo yalifanyika Nchini Afrika ya Kusini. 

Mandela na Tanzania

Tanzania kama nchi imehusika kwa kiasi kikubwa sana katika kuuvunja vunja utawala wa kikaburu na katiak kuongoza harakati za kutaka Mandela aachiliwe huru. Baba wa Taifa Mwalimu Nyerere na utawala wake mara baada ya Uhuru 1961 aliazimia kutoa msaada wote unaohitajika kwa wapigania uhuru wa Afrika ya Kusini. Kama ilivyodokezwa hapo juu kuwa mojawapo ya mashtaka dhidi ya Mandela ni lile la kwenda nje ya Afrika ya Kusini bila kibali. Mwaka 1962 Mandela akitumia njia za panya alitoroka Afrika ya Kusini na hatimaye kuingia Tanganyika na kukutana na Mwalimu Nyerere ambaye aliwapa ahadi ya ushirikiano mkubwa. Mandela mwenyewe akizungumza katika dhifa aliyomwandaliwa Baba wa Taifa Mwalimu Nyerere mwaka 1997 Oktoba 17; alisema “Inanyenyekesha kukumbuka mchango wa Mwalimu Nyerere katika ukombozi wa bara letu na Uhuru wa Afrika ya Kusini”.

Aliendelea na kumsifia Nyerere kwa kusema kuwa wakati watu wengine walikuja baadaye kuona ubaya wa utawala kikaburu Nyerere aliliona hili mwaka 1959 ambapo akishirikiana na Fr. Huddleston walianzisha harakati za kupinga ubaguzi wa rangi (anti-apartheid movement) ambao zilikuja kuwa maarufu sana baadaye – hasa baada ya kesi ya Rivonia. Mandela alisema kukutana na Mwalimu mwaka 1962 kulimuonesha jinsi Nyerere alivyokuwa anataka haki sehemu zote duniani na jinsi alivyojitoa yeye na taifa lake changa kuona kuwa Afrika yote inakuwa huru.

Wanaharakati – wakisherehekea miaka 80 ya Askofu Trevol Huddleston, Nyerere, Askofu Mkuu Desmond Tutu na aliyekuwa Katibu wa Jumuiya ya Madola Shirdath Ramphal

Katika kuonesha hili Mandela alichagua Tanzania miongoni mwa nchi za kwanza kutembelea mara baada ya kuachiliwa huru mwaka 1990. Aliingia nchini Machi 7, 1990 na kupokelewa na maelfu ya watu wakiongozwa na baba wa Taifa Mwalimu Julius Nyerere pamoja na Rais Ali Hassan Mwinyi. Wakati anatembelea nchini kama mtu huru Tanzania ilikuwa na wapiganaji karibu 10,000 wa Afrika ya Kusini waliokuwa wanaishi Tanzania na kujihusisha na mambo mbalimbali. Ikumbukwe ANC ilifungua ofisi yake ya kwanza nje ya Afrika ya Kusini Jijini Dar-es-Saalam mwaka 1961 na hii ilichangia baadaye pia kwa ofisi za vyama vingine vya ukombozi kuchagua Dar kama makao yao makuu. Yote haya yalisaidia kuifanya Tanzania kuwa makao makuu ya Kamati ya Ukombozi ya Nchi Zilizo Mstari wa Mbele ambayo kwa muda mrefu iliongozwa na Brig. Hashim Mbita. Uhusiano huu wa karibu wa Tanzania na Wapigania Uhuru ulithibitika zaidi baada ya Tanzania kuwapatia wapigania uhuru hao maeneo ya mafunzo ya kijeshi na taaluma mbalimbali huko Morogoro eneo la Mazimbu na maeneo mengine Mtwara na sehemu nyingine nchini. Pamoja na vyuo wapigania uhuru hao walipewa maeneo ya shule za msingi na sekondari vile vile.

Uhusiano huu wa karibu wa Tanzania na wapigania uhuru wa Afrika ya Kusini ulionekana pia wakati wa Mkutano wa Mawaziri Wakuu wa Nchi za Jumuiya za Madola uliofanyika London, Uingereza . Katika makala yake aliyoandika kwenye gazeti la The Observer Machi 7, 1961 Nyerere aliweka msimamo wa Tanganyika mapema kabisa kuhusiana na uanachama wa Afrika ya Kusini kwenye Jumuiya hiyo (Afrika ya Kusini iliomba kuwa mwanachama na mawaziri wakuu walitakiwa kuchukua uamuzi). Katika makala hiyo Nyerere alisema mojawapo ya mistari inayokumbukwa sana kuwa “kuipigia kura Afrika Kusini ijiunge ni kutupigia kura sisi kujitoa (To vote South Africa in, is to vote us out) na inaaminikuwa kuwa hoja aliyoijenga ilichangia sana kubadili upepo na kusababisha Afrika ya Kusini kutoa ombi lake la kujiunga. Uhusiano wa karibu wa Nyerere na Mandela haukushia wakati huo tu; hata baada ya kifo cha Mwalimu alikuwa ni Nelson Mandela aliyechukua jukumu la kusaidia kuleta amani Rwanda kama Mpatanishi.

Buriani

Mandela ametutoka baada ya maisha ambayo ametumikia nchi yake, bara lake na dunia kwa namna ambayo ameacha alama ya kudumu ya kukumbukwa. Kwa mtu ambaye utawala wa kikaburu ulimnyima haki nyingi za msingi na kumchukulia miaka ishirini na saba ya maisha yake angeweza kuwa mtu mwenye kisasi pale aliposhika madaraka kama Rais wa nchi yake. Mtu ambaye alinyanyaswa, kuteswa, na kushindwa hata kuhudhuria mazishi ya mamake kwa namna ya kawaida angekuwa ni mtu mwenye kinyongo sana.

Hata hivyo Mandela alionesha huruma na msamaha wa hali ya juu sana. Aliposhika madaraka alihakikisha kuwa watu weupe wanajihisi salama na kuondoa kabisa roho ya kulipiza kisasi hasa kwa watu weusi ambao waliumia sana mikononi mwa weupe kwa karibu miaka 400. Anapoitwa “Baba wa Taifa” la Afrika ya Kusini haitwi hivyo kirahisi. Mchango wake wa pekee kwa nchi yake unamuweka katika nafasi ya pekee kukumbukwa na vizazi vingi vijavyo. Hali hii ya msamaha iligusa hata maisha yake binafsi. Pamoja na kupata habari za mkewe Winnie Mandela kukosa uaminifu Mandela bado alihakikishia kuwa anapatiwa uwakilishi wa kutosha kujitetea kwenye kesi iliyomkabili ya utekaji na mauaji. Hata baada ya kuachana naye Mandela na mkewe mpya Graca Machel – aliyekuwa mke wa marehemu Samora Machel (Rais wa Msumbiji aliyeuawa kwa njama za makaburu) – Mandelea amekuwa na mahusiano mazuri na ya utulivu na Winnie ambaye ameshiriki vilivyo katika kumuuguza Madiba.

Dunia kwa hakika imepoteza shujaa wa haki za binadamu, nyota ya Afrika na mfano wa viongozi ambao waliweka maslahi ya watu wao mbele zaidi kuliko furaha zao binafsi na za familia zao. Wananchi wa Afrika ya Kusini wanapomlilia wanaungana na mamilioni zaidi katika bara la Afrika na Dunia ambao wanakumbuka nafasi ya Mandela katika maisha yao.

Kwa Watanzania wengi hasa waliokua miaka ya sabini na themanini harakati za kutaka Mandela afunguliwe na kukomeshwa kwa utawala wa kikaburu zilikuwa ni sehemu ya maisha yao. Hawa pia wanamshukuru Mungu kwa maisha ya Mandela na wanaungana kutoa rambirambi na pole kwa familia ya Mandela na kumwombea pumziko la amani baada ya maisha ya uchovu na kazi ngumu. Watanzania wanaungana na ndugu zao wa Afrika ya Kusini katika maombolezo haya; wao wenyewe wanakumbuka vile vile jinsi walivyoondokewa na Baba wa Taifa Mwalimu Nyerere na jinsi akili ya jumla ya Taifa ilivyoguswa lakini pia kuonekana kwa kubadilika kwa taifa kwa kutokuwepo Mwalimu. Ni wazi kuwa hata Afrika ya Kusini nayo itapita huku ambapo ile Dhamira ya Taifa (Consciousness of a Nation) yaani Mandela atakuwa hayupo. Njia pekee ya kuhakikisha kuwa Afrika ya Kusini inazidi kujijenga katika maisha ya kisasa na kuinua watu wake kuelekea maendeleo ni lazima kukumbuka umoja na udugu ambao Mandela alipigania.

WHY ADVERTISERS DON’T GET THEIR MONEY’S WORTH ON WORTHLESS BLOG ADS:

I have been going around blogs in Tanzania, especially these niche blogs that are all about reporting current events, I sincerely don’t like these blogs personally, but they have caught my attention these few days. When I say catch my attention, I’m not talking in a good way, but a way that annoys me because all these blogs do the same thing, most of them recycle the same news very few have original content, Tanzania bloggers do not understand the full meaning of blogging, if they did, with the time they spend publishing all those posts they would have been making a whole lot more money.

With so many blogs out there emerging on a daily basis, I’m going to have to focus on a few blogs, especially few of the most known blogs in Tanzania, blogs such as “issamichuzi.blogspot.com”, “djchoka.blogspot.com”,FULL SHANGWE BLOG , just to mention a few.

One thing you will notice in all of those above mentioned blogs, is how far down the content is. I mean really, I don’t know if these are blogs or ad management services. “issamichuzi.blogspot.com” is considered the best blog by most people, on my part its one of the worst blogs in Tanzania. It has, take or less 20 adverts at the top of the page, another 15 ads at the sidebar, I know advertisers think they are getting exposure due to the popularity if IssaMichuzi, but i’m going to disappoint them by saying how worthless all these ads are, and how worthless they are making the blog look.

To me stacking all those ads looks as if the blog is worthless, meaning putting an advert on these blogs is so cheap that a blog has 35 adverts on 1 page, seriously. If a blog really has that much traffic it should have a very high advertising rate that 1 advert can be worth all those 35 plus adverts, people that want to advertise should align and wait for the current advertiser’s contract to run out, I don’t even think they have contracts.

Why advertising on these blogs is a waste of time you ask?
I. First of all, it’s in Tanzania, loading that blog on a normal Computer, with a normal modem is hell.

It takes minutes to load a blog, I mean its hosted on Google’s servers for crying out loud, it shouldn’t take that long. It took me almost 2minutes for the whole website to load, and I have a very fast internet, trust me it’s really fast. I’m sure, the blogs loose overall traffic after putting all these ads, for people who can’t wait that long don’t wait, they just browse away from that blog.

II. Content is really far down,

I’m now asking myself if they blog for advertisers or do they actually blog for readers to get to read their content, it’s a mystery for me. People or readers, yes those people advertisers target, get into these blog for content the ads should be an added or extra for them.

III. The ads are just very huge

These blogs probably have Google Adsense ads too. For those who know these ads Look at those ad sizes(if not you can google ‘adsense sizes’ photos), those are standard ad sizes ,I don’t think if even one of them is that huge. None of them are 980 pixels width by 360 pixels high, I mean that’s half a website page. And having 20 of them is just absurd.
Adsense AD sizes
A
IV. Nobody Probably click your ads

For some, just the view is probably enough but most have links on those ads and want people to click them to get the full message of the advert, I mean an image puts across a message but people need convincing to get what you are selling. I’m sure very few people click those ads because people just scroll down looking for content, if the ads were carefully placed the readers would click them after seeing the content they were looking for, or after realizing the content isn’t actually what they were looking for.
V. These blogs are not mobile compatible

Imagine on an tablet or phone, having to go down 20 ads, 980 pixels wide by 360 pixels high. A standard mobile phone is 320 pixels wide, a standard tablet is 600-700 pixels wide, scrolling through those adverts is just impossibly frustrating, so there goes the mobile users ever seeing your adverts.

VI. Nobody is going to notice your advert

Simple and clear, 35 adverts, I don’t have time to waste looking at all of them. The teen you probably want to come to your event would rather be on facebook, the adult you want to get to know your product well has life to deal with.

I wouldn’t advise anybody to waste their time advertising on these blogs or website that have these type of ad formats or services. Don’t advertise on any website with already more than 3-5 adverts, if it has a lot of traffic it won’t be there after a while, and people probably won’t notice your ad with those stacks of adverts.

If you want your money’s worth, you better off signing up for Google adwords, finding a channel of that blog you want to advertise on and paying Google to advertise your product on those blogs. Google lets you pay after somebody has clicked your advert if not it stays their services till your budget runs out.
Or you can ask for a report on click throughs, meaning if you insist advertising on these blogs, let them give you a report of how many outbound links have been clicked, then you will see how many times somebody has noticed your advert.
For the blogger
Your blog has traffic, its worth a lot more than all those adverts put together are paying, don’t just take whatever to put up there. Find the highest bidder and put up
I also would advise them to have a featured post section at the top of the blog, find someone who can put that up a sliding featured post section at the top of your blog, and charge for those featured posts. A sliding featured post section will also get you paid if you want to make more money.

n.b : If I have misjudged a website feel free to let me know, if there is a website I am supposed to include please tell me media2solution@gmail.com it to be reviewed on a later date. There are many websites in this category but I have chosen these few to review for this post more will come out soon, and to the websites, this is merely creative criticism to help us grow our online experience as a whole. Please feel free to comment.

MUNGU ITANGULIE TIMU YETU YA TAIFA {TAIFA STARS}

 Kocha wa Timu ya Taifa ya Tanzania Taifa Stars, Kim Poulsen akiwa pomoja na nahodha Juma Kaseja siku ya Ijumaa Jun 7 2013, alipokuwa  anaongea na waandishi wa habari Pullman (hotelini) Marrakech, Morocco. Stars inashuka dimbani kukipiga na Mabingwa wa Atlas timu ya taifa ya Morocco katika mchezo wa kufuzu kucheza fainali za kombe la Dunia 2014 nchini Brazil. Mpicha kwa hisani ya hakingowiblog.com

Timu ya Taifa Taifa Stars leo masaa machache kuanzi sasa watakuwa na kibarua kigumu pale watakapo vaana na Mabingwa wa Atlas, timu ya taifa ya Morocco kusaka tiketi ya kucheza fainali za Kombe la Dunia, Kocha mkuu wa timu ya taifa stars Kim Poulsen amesema amejiandaa kucheza mpira wa kasi na wenye pasi za uhakika ili kuivuruga beki ya Morocco.

Kocha huyo ameyasema hayo katika mkutano na waandishi wa habari uliofanyika jana na kusisitiza kuwa ni muhimu kuhakikisha Morocco hawaupati mpira kwa urahisi.

“Wachezaji wako katika hali nzuri kabisa na wana ari ya kushinda mechi hii…tuna nguvu na tunajua namna ya kuwapiga Morocco,” alisema kocha huyo.

Alisema suala si mchezaji gani anaanza au washambulizi ni wangapi, bali ni kazi itakayofanyika uwanjani na ubora wa wachezaji wa Taifa Stars.

Alisema Morocco ni timu kubwa na ina wachezaji wengi wa kulipwa lakini inafungika na Taifa Stars itaweka nguvu kuanzia mwanzo wa mchezo huo.

“Unapocheza mechi kama hii inabidi uweke nguvu dakika za kwanza za mechi ili umpe mpinzani wakati mgumu kwa hivyo dakika za mwanzo zitakuwa muhimu sana katika mechi hii,” alisema.

Poulsena alisema baadhi ya watu nchini Morocco bado wanaamini kuwa ushindi wa mechi ya awali Jijini Dar es Salaam wa 3-1 dhidi ya Morocco ulikuwa wa kibahati tu. “Tunataka kuwadhihirishia kuwa tunaweza na Taifa Stars sio timu ndogo kama wanayodhani.”

Alisema mazingira ya kambi ni mazuri kabisa na wachezaji wote wako katika hali nzuri na tayari kwa mchezo huu.

“Katika hali ya kawaida ungetegemea hujuma nyingi ikiwemo hoteli mbovu, viwanja vibovu vya mazoezi na kadhalika lakini hapa ni tofauti kabisa… kwani mazingira ni mazuri,” alisema Poulsen.Taifa Stars imeweka kambi katika Hoteli ya Pullman iliyoko nje kidogo ya Mji wa Marrakech.

Naye nahodha wa Taifa Stars, Juma Kaseja alisema wamefanya mazoezi ya kutosha hasa ikizingatiwa kambi ilianzia Addis Ababa, Ethiopia ambako walicheza mechi ya kirafiki na Sudan na kutoa sare ya 0-0 kabla ya kuelekea Marrakech.

“Morocco ni timu kubwa, tunapaswa kuiheshimu lakini sio kuiogopa…tutapambana ili timu ipate matokeo,” alisema Kaseja.

Naye Meneja wa Bia ya Kilimanajro Premium Lager, George Kavishe, akizungumza kutoka Dar es Salaam alisema wao kama wadhamini wa Taifa Stars wana imani kubwa sana na Stars na wanaitaka iwape Watanzania raha kwa mara nyingine kwa kushinda mechi hiyo.

“Tumewaona wakifanya vizuri nyumbani kwa kushinda mechi tano mfululizo na sasa ni muda wa kupata ushindi nje,” alisema.Stars iko katika kundi C pamoja na Ivory Coast, Morocco na Gambia. Kundi hilo linaongozwa na Ivory Coast yenye pointi 7, Tanzania 6, Morocco 2 na Gambia 1.

Mechi ya kesho itapigwa katika Uwanja wa Marrakech saa tatu usiku kwa saa za Morocco ambayo itakuwa saa tano kamili Tanzania.

Baada ya Morocco Stars itacheza na Ivory Coast nyumbani Jumapili ijayo na mechi ya mwisho itakuwa dhidi ya Gambia Septemba mwaka huu.

MFAHAMU MAREHEMU FATUMA BINTI BARAKA ‘BI. KIDUDE’

Marehemu Bi Kidude alikuwa ni gwiji wa muziki katika Bara la Afrika. Jina lake halisi ni Fatuma binti Baraka. Bi Kidude ni msanii mkongwe na mahiri sana katika fani ya muziki wa mwambao ambao hujulikana kwa jina la Taarabu.

Muziki huu ambao ni mchanganyiko wa muziki toka nchi za Kiarabu na vionjo vya muziki wa Kiafrikaumekita sana katika mwambao wa Afrika Mashariki yaani Zanzibar, Mombasa, Lamu na kwingineko.Leo hii ni Marehemu! Nguli na Mtunukiwa wa Nishani ya Uhuru wa Tanganyika/Tanzania 2012, Fatuma binti Baraka au Bi Kidude, alizaliwa katika kijiji cha Mfagimarigo Zanzibar katika familia ya watoto saba (7). Baba yake Mzee Baraka alikuwa ni mfanyabiashara wa nazi, zao ambalo ni la kutumainiwa sana Zanzibar. 

Bi Kidude aliwahi kusimulia kuwa hafahamu tarehe halisi aliyozaliwa, isipokuwa anachojua ni kwamba alizaliwa wakati rupia ikitumika kama fedha, na vilevile ana hakika ni kabla ya Vita Kuu ya Kwanza ya Ulaya. Wataalamu wa mahesabu baada ya kupata taarifa hizo wakampigia mahesabu na kumkabidhi miaka yake kwamba ni zaidi ya miaka 90.

 

Bi Kidude aliendelea kusema uimbaji aliuanza tangu alipokuwa na umri wa miaka kumi na alijifunza kutoka kwa msanii mkongwe na aliyetamba sana enzi hizo Sitti binti Saad. Anasema wageni wengi kutoka sehemu mbalimbali walikuwa wakifika Zanzibar kuja kumwona Sitti, na kwa vile Bi Kidude na Sitti walikuwa wako karibu basi yeye alikuwa akiwapeleka wageni wale nyumbani kwa Bi Sitti, wakifika huko wageni walikuwa wakiingia ndani na yeye kubakia nje, kule ndani Bi Sitti alikuwa akiwaimbia wale wageni, na yeye huku nje alikuwa akimsikiliza kwa makini na kumfuatiza jinsi alivyokuwa akiimba. Aliendelea hivyo hadi akawa mahiri sana katika uimbaji.Alipokuwa na miaka 13, kwa mara ya kwanza alitoroka nyumbani kwao Zanzibar na kukimbilia Tanzania Bara, baada ya kulazimishwa kuolewa. Lakini alipokuwa kigoli wa kutosha kuolewa aliolewa ingawa ndoa hiyo nayo haikudumu kutokana na manyanyaso aliyokuwa akiyapata, hivyo aliamua kukimbilia kaskazini mwa Misri ikiwa ni katika miaka ya 1930, huko aling’ara sana katika fani yake ya uimbaji na uchezaji ngoma. Lakini ilipofika miaka ya 1940 aliamua kurudi nyumbani Zanzibar ambako aliendelea na shughuli zake uimbaji. 

Bi Kidude hategemei kazi moja tu ya kuimba, kwani pia ni mfanyabiashara ya ‘wanja’ na ‘hina’ ambavyo anavitengeneza yeye mwenyewe, pia ni mtaalamu wa matibabu kwa dawa za mitishamba na zaidi ya hayo ni mwalimu mzuri sana wa ‘Unyago’ na ameanzisha chuo chake mwenyewe na anasema katika wanafunzi wake wote hakuna aliyepata talaka kutoka kwa mumewe.

 

Watu wanasema ‘Utu uzima dawa’ Bi Kidude ana upeo mkubwa sana wa akili kwani pamoja na kukulia katika mazingira yaliyogubikwa na tamaduni za kiarabu ambapo mwanamke anatakiwa wakati wote akiwa hadharani ajifunike, Bi Kidude aliliona hili katika upeo mwingine kwamba ni sheria tu ya kitamaduni toka Uarabuni, hivyo aliamua kuvunja sheria hiyo na kuondoa hijabu mwilini mwake, na sasa hivi anavaa kama Mtanzania na si kama Mwarabu. Lakini hakubakia hapo alivunja na miiko mingine zaidi ya kutokunywa na kuvuta, kwani Bi Kidude anakunywa pombe na kuvuta sigara jambo ambalo si kawaida kwa wanawake Zanzibar.Bi Kidude amekwisha tembelea nchi nyingi sana ikiwa ni pamoja na Oman, Ufaransa, Hispania, Ufini, Ujerumani na Uingereza.

Amekwisha pata tuzo mbalimbali ikiwa ni pamoja na ile ya Tamasha la Filamu la Nchi za Jahazi (ZIFF) mwaka 1999 tuzo ni ya maisha. Pia mwaka jana tuzo ya WOMAX ilienda kwake.

Nyimbo alizowahi kuimba ni pamoja na Muhogo wa Jang’ombe, na anaimba kwa Kiswahili na Kiarabu. Hakuwahi kupata elimu nyingine zaidi ya Kurani.

Bi Kidude pia amekuwa akishirikishwa na wasanii wengi wakongwe na chipukizi katika nyimbo zao. Miongoni mwa nyimbo zinazotamba sana siku hizi ambazo Bi Kifude ameimba na vijana wa kisasa ni za Msanii Ali Toll maarufu AT.

Mbali na AT lakini pia Bi Kidude amewika na kung’ara zaidi katika wimbo mwingine wa vijana wa Ahmada Umelewa wa Msanii Offside Trick ambao umepigwa marufuku kupigwa kwa sasa visiwani Zanzibar.

R.I.P FATUMA BARAKA “BI KIDUDE”.

THE FACE OF CORRUPTION IN AFRICA; CASE OF THE LUTHERAN CHURCH IN TANZANIA

No doubt you have read the many articles over the past month about corruption within various diocese of the ELCT, most specifically the North Central Diocese under the control of Bishop Laizer and General Secretary Karyongi. Here (HabariLeo.com) is a link to onf of the many  articles.

While there is lots of talk about the Corridor Springs Hotel and the Hospital, what you probably have not heard is our story. We are an NGO that had until late 2011, been operating a secondary school for orphans in Arusha before it was siezed by the North Central Diocese of the ELCT. We are still fighting to get it back. Below is our story.

Attached (embedded in this site at the end) is the script of our documentary on the subject of corruption within the church in Tanzania. We hope it will provide some advice for how NGOs need to proceed carefully when it comes to setting up new projects in Tanzania. We also hope it will further our efforts to reclaim control of our project so we can continue the work of educating Tanzanian orphans.

Please contact me (*Scott) with any questions on this.

*To contact Dr Scott, please see the address at the end of this article)

————

On November 26, 2011, the North Central Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania (NCD-ELCT) took over the operation of Peace House Secondary School (PHS) in Arusha, Tanzania. Prior to the take-over, PHS was funded, built, owned and operated by Peace House Africa (PHA), a Minnesota-based non-profit. What you may not be aware of is that the NCD under the direction of Bishop Thomas Laiser and General Secretary Israel Karyongi, literally stole the school from PHA at gunpoint. The following day, the American Managing Director and staff were evicted from the country by the Immigration Authorities, who had been influenced by the Bishop.

Bishop Laiser has issued many false public statements attempting to justify the stealing of the school. However, in the

end it was simple armed robbery of a $6 million PHA investment in Africa, meant for the benefit of orphan kids. The school has now been converted to a private, for-profit school charging tuition that is totally unaffordable to destitute students.

Since the take-over of PHS, the NCD has refused all efforts by PHA to negotiate a resolution to this matter. We have taken this matter to high-level government and church officials in both the USA and Tanzania seeking their assistance. Unfortunately, we have found that no one wants to be involved with the “dirty work” of stopping corruption within the African church—even if it was a school for orphans that was stolen.

We are reminded of Dr. Martin Luther King’s paraphrase of Dante’s immortal words, “The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.”

No matter–we will deal with the corrupt Bishop and his accomplice, the General Secretary, on our own. We have decided that the best way to attack this corruption is to follow the Ronald Reagan game plan for deposing third world dictators—cut off their money supply! We will continue to put financial pressure on the NCD until they return the school and the land that it sits on, to PHA. Further, we are pushing for the resignation or firing of Bishop Laiser and General Secretary Karyongi from the NCD.

You may ask, how do you put financial pressure on a church on the other side of the world? Very easy….

First, friends of Peace House organized a boycott of the Corridor Springs Hotel—a for-profit hotel built for the benefit of the Bishop and owned by the NCD (www.boycottcorridorsprings.blogspot.com). The Hotel now has virtually no guests and is losing more and more money every month. The NCD had been secretly using charitable donations to both service the $4 million debt on the hotel and make up for the operating losses. So we started telling this story of corruption to their major foreign donors. No surprise, the result was a sudden drop-off of donations. The NCD was unable to make their annual $400,000 interest payment and the bank is currently foreclosing on the hotel.

Next, we are producing a documentary titled, “The New Face of Corruption in Africa,” which tells our story and other cases of massive corruption within the Tanzanian churches. We will share the finished video with churches and potential donors throughout America and Europe. It is not our objective to cut off all charitable donations to Africa but rather to prevent a large percentage of these donations from being embezzled by corrupt church officials. Money sent to corrupt church leaders is simply a waste of the finite charitable dollars available in this world.

Finally, we are distributing the script for the documentary to any interested parties in Tanzania, prior to the release of the final production (see attached script). The script is our first effort to widely disseminate our side of the story…up until now it has been the church telling lies to rationalize their crime. Our objective with telling our story in the local community is to help and encourage honest church officials, pastors and NCD members to “clean their own house” of their corrupt leadership, before they lose their foreign funding.

We hope that you will help PHA get PHS back so that we can once again open the school to orphans and other very needy students. Please help us by forwarding this email and the attached script to any Tanzanian or expatriate contacts that you think may be interested in this story–particularly members of the NCD or government.

We also hope that you find the story to be useful as well as interesting. For those of you who work with NGOs or the church, we hope that you can learn from our experiences and avoid some of these problems.

Thanks for your help and support in our effort to get PHS back for the orphan kids.

All the best,
Scott

TAIFA STAR WON 1 – 0 AGAINST CHIPOLOPOLO

Zambia Manager (CHIPOLOPOLO) Herve Renard completed his assessment of local talents with a good warm up match against Tanzania which his squad lost by a solitary goal at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

Thanks to a Mrisho Ngassa strike just before the break, Tanzania pulled off what may go down as a famous result against the reigning African champions.

Zambia hit the upright twice and came close a number of times but could not find a way past Juma Kaseja as the hosts rallied and held on to their first half lead.

Renard will then announce the 26 man squad to start the Nations Cup preparations in Johannesburg on 26 December. In between the intensive preparations for the defence of the title, Zambia will play Morocco on 8th January in Johannesburg, Norway at Levy Mwanawasa in Ndola on 12th January and Namibia on the 15th.

The kings of African football open their campaign to retain the Nations Cup title with a match against Ethiopia on 21st January before taking on Nigeria who return to the Afcon finals tournament after failing to qualify for the 2012 finals.

Chipolopolo end the group campaign against Burkina Faso – all at Mbombela.

NEW TEAM TO OVERSEE THE DAR ES SALAAM REGIONAL FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION (DRFA) ELECTIONS

THE Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) Election Committee has dismantled and ordered for a formation of a new team that will oversee the Dar es Salaam Regional Football Association (DRFA) elections.

A statement issued by the TFF Election Committee, Chairman, Deogratius Lyatto said his committee, which met on Thursday to go through various appeals decided to disband the DRFA election committee,following massive irregularities.The committee also ordered for a fresh start of the election process within the Dar es Salaam soccer body starting October 29 and the election conducted on December 8, this year.

“DRFA election committee under the Chairmanship of the former TFF boss, Muhidin Ndolanga has been dismantled and they have been directed to form a new one according to the laid down election procedures by October 25,” said Lyatto in a statement. Moreover, he directed that all contestants who have been cleared should pick in and fill in forms afresh but they should not repay for the form, should they be seeking for a similar post before the elections process was cancelled.

Among the irregularities which forced the Lyatto committee to go for stern measures are endorsing the current DRFA Chairman, Amin Mohamed Salim (Bakhressa) to vie for the same post without seeing his original Form IV certificate, which is the minimum qualification for the post.

The committee said Michael Wambura filed the appeal claiming that, Bakhressa lacked the required qualifications and was not eligible to contest in the election.They granted him his appeal after going though the evidence and they were satisfied that Bakhressa did not have the Secondary School Certificate thus he is not allowed to vie for the post in the coming election.

The DRFA Committee, Lyatto said also made a mistake in endorsing the contestants while knowing that there were outright violation of election procedure in the whole issue.”The whole issue was a mess, the DRFA out rightly violated the election procedures by favouring others and denying others their right, by so doing, we have ordered for a fresh process,” said Lyatto.

He cited a case where the DRFA election committee also endorsed contestants Gungurugwa Tambaza, Mohammed Bhinda, Benny Kisaka and Hamisi Ayoub Mpapai without having evidence that they have the Academic Certificate of Ordinary Secondary Education. However, in their deliberation, Lyatto said the committee also quashed Wambura’s appeal that the DRFA constitution as well as the region’s election committee was not legally formed, saying all procedures were adhered to.

The committee also met to discuss appeal from Mbeya Regional Football Association (MRFA) petitioning John Mwamwaja to vie for the Chairman post within the association. Lyatto’s committee endorsed the contestant after they satisfied themselves that the appellant claims lacked grounds.

Moreover, Lusekelo E. Mwanjala, who was disqualified to vie for the Chairman post has been cleared to continue with the race as well as Thadeo T. Kalua, who can now seek election for the TFF General Assembly representative.Lyatto said they have also pushed back for four-day to October 25, election of Shinyanga Regional Football Association (SHIREFA).

INVESTORS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PUBLICIZE THEIR EXPLORATION FINDINGS; SIMBACHAWENE

DEPUTY MINISTER FOR ENERGY AND MINERALS, GEORGE SIMBACHAWENE

THE government has announced that all new oil and gas discoveries will be declared in public by the government and not by investors or any other party.

Deputy Minister for Energy and Minerals, George Simbachawene said in Dar es Salaam that the move was taken in order to protect the rights of the country in the light of a move by the government to put in place a gas policy.

He was speaking during the Media Editors Roundtable Dialogue hosted by the city-based NGO Agenda Participation 2000 which dwelled on the theme “Natural Resource Boom, Corruption and State Capture in Africa a case of Tanzania. How can Tanzania unleash its potential growth as a Pole for East Africa’s growth.”

“While we aim to ensure maximum transparency and accountability, we have moved a step ahead where we have to ensure the country benefits fully from these treasures especially gas. In doing so investors are not allowed to publicize their exploration findings. It is the government that will do so,” he said.

The Deputy Minister said that in the existing contracts, Tanzania has 70 per cent stake in all gas and oil exploration deals and that it is taking all necessary precautions over the possibility of some investors inflating the exploration costs before commencement of production.

He appealed for editors to make sure only stories from authentic sources on the gas and oil exploration development are published in their media outlets. He cautioned over misleading reports.

The deputy minister mentioned an example where one media house reported that the largest amount of gas discovered so far has already been sold to foreigners. In fact, so far only one source of gas has been developed out of the 26 discovered.

Mr Simbachawene noted that Tanzania cannot develop oil and gas alone since development needs a huge capital, high skills and technology.

He further noted that capitalism was leading the world economy and therefore it was almost impossible for Tanzania to run the oil and gas sector without involving the world’s economy which is capitalism driven.

According to the deputy minister, in a capitalism driven economy, capital is the key factor. “Between 1.2m USD and 1.5m USD is needed per day in exploration activities and the exploration may take up to 10 years. So, we cannot risk such investment,” he observed.

Stakeholders, however, observed that more should be done to ensure the country’s maximum benefits of its natural resources like gas and oil.

Prof Max Mmuya of the University of Dar es Salaam advised state actors and policy makers to pay maximum attention and take care of the valuable natural resources found in the country.

“It seems we don’t have control of our own resources and don’t even know the value of the resources that we possess. We should be serious and take maximum care on that area straight away,” he said.

One of the editors, Mr Richard Mgamba, insisted on the need for journalists to be empowered in order to extensively report on the development and the challenges facing the energy sector particularly the gas and oil industry.

He was supported by the Executive Director of the Tanzania Media Fund (TMF), Mr Ernest Sungura, who advocated for the media to give coverage on extractive industry a high priority.

But on his side, Mr Mbaraka Islam blamed what he called political corruption, saying that if the vice was not eliminated it was hard for the country to record any benefits from oil and gas.

TANZANIAN MUSLIM CLERIC PONDA ISSA PONDA ARRESTED.

SHEIK PONDA ISSA PONDA’S RELIGIOUS GROUP IS NOT RECOGNISED BY THE TANZANIA GOVERNMENT

A controversial Tanzanian Muslim cleric has been arrested for stoking religious hatred, police have said.

Sheikh Ponda Issa Ponda’s arrest comes after Muslim protesters vandalised and torched five churches in the main city, Dar es Salaam, last week.

The violence followed rumours that a Christian boy urinated on a Koran.

More than 120 people had earlier been arrested over the attacks – one of the worst cases of religious conflict in mainland Tanzania.

POWER STRUGGLE.

The 14-year-old boy was also taken into police custody on Friday for his own safety.

Through his institution, he’s threatening the well-being of other Muslim leader”

Suleiman Kova Police commander

Angry Muslims then marched to the police station to demand that he be handed over for “punishment”.

When police refused, the group attacked churches in the city’s Mbagala area.

Dar es Salaam police commander Suleiman Kova said Sheikh Ponda had been arrested for giving speeches that incited people to hate other religious groups and the government.

This influenced people to stage protests similar to those that led to last week’s violence, he said.

“He’s been conducting various activities, including that of organising demonstrations without following the right channels,” Mr Kova added.

Sheikh Ponda is the head of the influential Council of Imams, which is involved in a long-running power struggle with a government-backed group of Muslim clerics known as Bakwata.

Mr Kova said Sheikh Ponda had also been arrested because his group was operating illegally.

“Through his institution, he’s threatening the well-being of other Muslim leaders,” Mr Kova added.

CHAMA CHA WAPIGAPICHA ZA HABARI HAPA NCHINI(PPAT)WATOA TAMKO KULAANI MAUAJI YA MWANAHABARI

TAMKO LA PPAT KULAANI KUSHAMBULIWA NA KUSABABISHA KIFO CHA MWAKILISHI CHANNEL TEN IRINGA DAUDI

Chama cha Wapigapicha za Habari Tanzania (PPAT) kinapenda kuungana na jamii ya wanahabari nchini, watanzania wote  kutoa pole kwa Familia ya Marehemu Daud Mwangosi na KULAANI mauaji ya kikatili ya Mwandishi Daud Mwangosi wa Channel Ten mkoani Iringa.

Mwangosi ambaye pia alikuwa ni Mwenyekiti wa Klabu ya wanahabari Mkoani Iringa (IPS) alifikwa na umauti Septemba 2, 2012 majira ya saa 10 jioni wakati wa vurugu za Polisi na Wafuasi wa CHADEMA.

PPAT inalaani kwa nguvu zote kitendo hicho cha kinyama na ambacho kimetishia kwa kiwango kikubwa usalama wa waandishi wa habari hasa Wapigapicha kama Mwangosi ambao hutakiwa kuwa mstari wa mbele katika kupiga picha za matukio mbalimbali.

Polisi ikiwa ni chombo pekee cha usalama wa raia na mali zao wakati wote ilishindwa kuhakikisha Mwandishi, Daud Mwangosi anakuwa salama na kutekeleza wajibu wake vyema.

Ni hao hao Polisi tumewaona katika picha kadhaa wakimshambulia na hatimaye kutawanyika baada ya kufa kwa Mwangosi lakini ajabu tunasikia kupitia taarifa zao kuwa Mwangosi alikuwa wakati akikimbia kutoka upande wa Wananchi.

PPAT inapenda kutoa wito kwa Mkuu wa Jeshi la Polisi Tanzania, IGP Said Mwema na kuwaajibisha Askari wote waliohusika katika tukio lile akiwepo RPC wa mkoa wa Iringa na kisha yeye mwenyewe pia kuwajibika kutokana na mauaji hayo ya kinyama.

PPAT pia inaungana na vyama vyote vya Waandishi wa habari nchini Tanzania katika kutaka uchunguzi huru na wahaki ulio katika uwazi katika kuchunguza kifo cha Mwandishi Mwenzetu Daudi Mwangosi na majibu yake yawekwe hadharani mapema iwezekanavyo .

Pia PPAT inawaunga mkono Chama cha Waandishi wa Habari Mkoani Iringa (IPC) kuwazuia wanachama wake kuandika Habari zozote za Jeshi hilo Mkoani Iringa. PPAT inaomba vyama vyote vya mikoa na Jukwaa la Wahariri TEF kusitisha uandikaji wa habari zozote zinazolihusu Jeshi la Polisi nchini hadi watakapo wawajibisha waliotenda mauaji hayo.

TAARIFA YA JUKWAA LA WAHARIRI (TEF) KWA VYOMBO VYA HABARI KUHUSU KUUAWA KWA MWANDISHI DAUDI MWANGOSI

MWEYEKITI WACHAMA CHA WAANDISHI WA HABARI MKOA WA IRINGA (IPC) MAREHEM DAUDI MWANGOSI

UTANGULIZI:

  1. Jukwaa la Wahariri Tanzania (TEF), limepokea kwa masikitiko makubwa kifo cha mwandishi wa habari wa Kituo cha Televisheni cha Channel Ten, mkoani Iringa, Daudi Mwangosi.

  2. Mwangosi ambaye pia alikuwa Mwenyekiti wa Chama cha Waandishi wa Habari mkoa wa Iringa (IPC), aliuawa akiwa kazini jana, Septemba 2, 2012, wakati polisi walipokuwa wakiwadhibiti wafuasi wa Chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (Chadema).

  3. Tukio hili linaiingiza Tanzania katika historia mbaya ya ukiukwaji na ukandamizwaji wa uhuru wa habari, kwani ni kwa mara ya kwanza tunashuhudia mwandishi wa habari AKIUAWA WAKATI AKITEKELEZA MAJUKUMU YAKE YA KIHABARI.

  4. Taarifa za awali zinaonyesha kuwa Mwangosi kabla ya kufikwa na mauti saa 9.30 alasiri katika kijiji cha Nyololo, Mufindi, alizingirwa na kushambuliwa na polisi waliokuwa katika eneo la tukio. Na hata alipopiga kelele za kuomba msaada, hakusikilizwa na matokeo yake aliuawa na kitu kinachodhaniwa kuwa ni bomu.

  5. Kwa kushirikiana na Baraza la Habari Tanzania, TEF tumechukua hatua za haraka za kuunda timu ya uchunguzi wa suala hilo, ambayo itakwenda mkoani Iringa mapema kadri itakavyowezekana, ili kubaini ukweli wa tukio hilo. Lengo la uchunguzi huo ni kuweka kumbukumbu sahihi (documentation) ya tukio hilo la aina yake katika historia ya nchi yetu.

  6. Matokeo ya uchunguzi huo pamoja na mwingine unaofanywa na Umoja wa Klabu za Waandishi wa Habari Tanzania (UTPC), ndiyo yatakayotoa mwelekeo wa hatua ambazo TEF inachukua dhidi ya Jeshi la Polisi katika siku chache zijazo.


MTIZAMO NA MSIMAMO WA TEF


Kwa kuzingatia taarifa kutoka Iringa na zile za vyombo vya habari vya jana (Jumapili, Septemba 02, 2012) na leo (Jumatatu, Septemba 03, 2012), TEF ina mtizamo na msimamo kama ifuatavyo:

  1. Kwanza tunalaani vikali tukio la kupigwa, kisha kuuwawa kwa mwandishi Daudi Mwangosi ambalo limeigusa tasnia ya habari kwamba sasa pengine waandishi wa habari ni malengo “target ya polisi” wanapokuwa kwenye kazi zao.

  2. Ieleweke wazi kwamba matukio haya siyo yanaondoa imani ya waandishi wa habari kwa jeshi la polisi tu, bali yanaweza kuwa chanzo cha uhasama na ufa mkubwa ambao utawanyima wananchi nafasi ya kutumikiwa na pande mbili ambazo zinategemeana.

  3. Kwa matukio ya aina hii, tunadhani wakati mwafaka kwa uongozi wa Jeshi la Polisi nchini kuwajibika, kuazia kwa Kamanda wa Polisi wa Mkoa na uongozi wa Makao Mkuu, akiwamo Mkuu wa Jeshi la Polisi (IGP), Saidi Mwema.

  4. Tunasema hivi kwani kuna kila dalili kwamba polisi wanahusika kwa namna moja au nyingine na tukio au/na matukio yaliyosababisha kifo cha Mwangosi, kwani kitendo cha kumzingira tu na kumshambulia kinathibitisha kwamba hawakuwa na nia njema hata kidogo dhidi ya mwandishi huyu.

  5. Taarifa ambazo TEF tunazo, pia zinadai kwamba kulikuwa na mpango wa polisi wa “kuwashughulikia waandishi wa habari watatu” (Mwangosi) akiwa mmojawapo na hilo lilionekana likitekelezwa kwa polisi kumshambulia mwandishi huyo, baadaye alipoteza maisha katika mazingira ya kutatanisha.

  6. Hili linatiliwa nguvu na tukio jingine la polisi kumpiga na kumjeruhi mwandishi mwingine, Godfrey Mushi ambaye ni mwakilishi wa gazeti la Nipashe mkoani Iringa. Mwandishi wa tatu ambaye hadi tunapoandika taarifa hiyo yumo katika mpango wa ‘kushughulikiwa na polisi’ ni Francis Godwin ambaye ni mwandishi wa habari wa kujitegemea.

  7. Vitendo vya aina hii havivumiliki na havipaswi kuachwa kuendelea kwani ni hatari kwa ustawi wa demokrasia na uhuru wa habari nchini. Hatuwezi kuendelea katika mazingira ambayo polisi wanageuka kuwa chombo cha mauaji ya raia badala ya kuwa walinzi wa raia.

  8. Kwa maana hiyo, mbali na uchunguzi ambao utafanywa na polisi, tunatoa wito kwa Serikali kuunda chombo huru, ambacho kitabaini ukweli, na matokeo yake yatangazwe kwa umma, huku wahusika wa aibu hiyo wakichukuliwa hatua za kisheria. Tunasema hivyo, tukifahamu kwamba tayari kuna jitihada za kuficha ukweli na kueneza propaganda za uongo kuhusu tukio zima.

  9. Mwenendo wa aina hii wa chombo cha dola kuamua kutumia silaha kuua na baadaye kupanga mbinu chafu za kuficha ukweli ni hatari kwa Taifa, na unaiweka demokraisia ya nchi yetu njia panda, huku tukielekea katika hatari ya Taifa kutumbukia katika uovu.
