          MKUU WA MKOA WA KILIMANJARO ANNA MGHWIRA ,ASHUHUDIA MAGARI 103 YAKIWA NA SHEHENA YA MAHINDI NJIA PANDA YA HIMO   

Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Kilimanjaro Anna Mghwira akiwa ameongozana na baadhi ya wajumbe wa kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro wakiwemo Kamanda wa Polisi ,Hamis Issah na Mkuu wa wilaya ya Moshi ,Kippi Warioba wakitembelea maeneo ambayo yameshikiliwa magari yaliyobeba shehena ya Mahindi .
Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Kilimanjaro,Anna Mghwira akizunbgumza na baadhi ya wafanyabaishara wa Mahindi ambao magari yao yanashikiliwa eneo la Njia Panda mkoani Kilimanjaro.
Baadhi ya Wafanyabiashara ambao Mahindi yao yanashikiliwa katika eneo la Njia Panda mkoani Kilimanjaro wakimsikiliza Mkuu wa mkoa wa Kilimanjaro Anna Mghwira alipofika eneo hilo kwa lengo la kuzungumza nao.
Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Kilimanjaro,Anna Mghwira akiangalia magari yaliyobeba shehena ya Mahindi yanayoshikiliwa katika eneo la Njia Panda ya Himo.
Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Kilimanjaro,Anna Mghwira akizungumza na baadhi ya madereva na Wafanyabaisahara ambao Mahindi yao yanashikiliwa eneo la Njia Panda ya Himo.
Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Kilimanjaro,Anna Mghwira akitizama Malori yenye Shehena ya Mahindi yakiwa yamehifadhiwa katika maeneo mbalimbali ikiwemo nyuma ya vituo vya Mafuta .
Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Kilimanjaro,Anna Mghwira akiongozana na Kamanda wa Polisi mkoa wa Kilimanjaro,Hamis Issa wakiodoka katika eneo hilo baada ya kuangalia malori yanayoshikiliwa yakiwa na shehena ya Mahindi.
Baadhi ya Magari yakiwa yameegeshwa katika maeneo tofauti tofauti yakiwa na shehena ya Mahindi.
ENEO la njia Panda linalounganisha barabara za Moshi/Arusha,Tanga/Dar es Salaam na ile ya Holili mpakani mwa nchi jirani ya Kenya linatajwa kama kituo kikuu cha Malori yanayosafirisha Nafaka kwenda nchi jirani ya Kenya.
Uchunguzi uliofanywa na Globu ya Jamii umebaini kuwepo kwa maeneo yasiyo rasmi ya kuegesha Malori hayo ,mengine yakiwa na Matela yake ,ambako shughuli za kupakua mahindi na kupakia katika Magari Madogo aina ya fuso zinazotoka nchi jirani ya Kenya hufanyika.
Maeneo mengine yanayotajwa kuwepo na Magulio  ya Mahindi ni katika sehemu za maegesho ya magari  zilizopo katika  vituo mbalimbali vya kuuza Mafuta ,pamoja na baadhi ya nyumba za wageni ambazo zimegeuzwa Maghala ya kuhifadhia Mahindi.
Magari zaidi ya 103 yanashikiiwa katika maeneo ya Njia Panda na Himo yakiwa yamebeba Shehena ya Mahindi tayari kusafirishwa huku baadhi ya madereva wakiyatelekeza Malori yao kwa siku ya tano sasa na kwenda kusiko julikana .
Hatua iliwasukuma Wafanyabiashara wa Mahindi pamoja na Madereva kufika ofisi za Mkuu wa mkoa kuwasilisha malalamiko yao juu ya kukamatwa kwa Malori hayo yakiwa Njia Panda badala ya mpakani kama alivyo agiza Waziri Mkuu,Kassim Majaliwa.
Wakizungumza nje ya jingo la ofisi ya Mkuu wa Mkoa,Wafanyabiashara hao ,Laurance Kanyota,Nuru Madai na Mariam Ramadhan walisema wameshangazwa na hatua ya jeshi la Polisi kushikilia magari yao yalikuwa na Mahindi yakisafirishwa kuelekea mikoa ya Arusha na Moshi.
“Magari yetu yapo pale Sheli Maount Meru,yalitokea Tunduma kwenda Arusha,yalipofika pale siku ya Jumamosi madereva walienda kula siku kuu ya Idd,jana (Juzi) asubuhi  Matandiboi wakapiga simu kwamba tumezungukwa na Polisi ,tukaenda pale tukaonana na OCD tukaliza kwanini mnatushikia magari ambayo yako Njia Panda yanayoenda Arusha au Moshi ,wakajibu tumetumwa kushika magari yote ya Mahindi.”alisema Mfanyabiashara Mariam.
Alisema alimuelewa Waziri Mkuu katika agizo lake kwamba magari yaliyopo mpakani ndio yashikiliwe  na si kama lilivyofanya jeshi la Polisi kukamata magari yaliyokuwa Njia Panda kuelekea Moshi na Arusha huku wakimuomba Waziri Mkuu kutoa ufafanuzi  kwa wasaidizi wake juu ya agizo lake.
Mfanyabiashara Kanyota alisema amekuwa akifanya biashara ya kusafirisha mazao kwa njia halali ikiwa ni pamoja na ulipaji wa kodi lakini anashangazwa na hatua ya kuzuiliwa kwa  Mahindi yake ambayo amekuwa akinunua na kuyauza katika viwanda vya kutengeneza unga kwa ajili ya Chakula.
“Tulikua tunaomba Mkuu wa mkoa ajue kwamba sisi ni wafanyabiashara tunaolipa kodi halali ya serikali atusaidie tufikishe mazao yetu sehemu yanapotakiwa kufika ,Mahindi yangu yanatoka Mbeya ,mkulima aiyeniletea mimi kama Dalali ametoka Tunduma.”alisema Kanyota.
Kauli ya Serikali ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro.
Kamati ya ulinzi na usalama mkoa wa Kilimanjaro imepigiria msumari katika Agizo la Waziri Mkuu, Kassim Majaliwa la kutaifisha Mahindi pamoja na gari litakalokutwa kuanzia June 26 mwka huu likiwa limebeba na kusafirisha Mahindi kwenda nje  ya nchi.
Mkuu wa mkoa wa Kilimajaro Anna Mghwira  ambaye pia ni Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa alisema jana ofisini kwake mbele ya waandishi wa habari kuwa magari 103 yaliyokamatwa Himo na Njia Panda yatahesabiwa kama sehemu ya uhujumu uchumi na kwamba yatataifishwa .
“Magari yaliyokamatwa kule Siha ,tayari tulikwisha amua kwamba yatapelekwa Nationa Milling(Ghala la chakula la taifa) Arusha ,lakini haya ya Himo ,Waziri Mkuu Alisha agiza kwamba kuanzia tarehe 26 ,magari yote yatakayokamatwa ,Bidhaa pamoja na magari yenyewe yatahesabiwa kuwa ni sehemu ya uhujumu Uchumi ,kwa hiyo yatataifishwa.”alisema Mghwira.
Mghwira alisema baada ya mfululizo wa vikao vya kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro juu swala zima la uuzaji na usafirishaji wa chakula nje ya nchi,kamati imefanyia kazi tamko la Waziri Mkuu kutaka kujiridhisha vya kutosha juu ya hali ya chakula iliyopo Kilimanjaro na mikoa ya jirani.
“Uogozi wa mkoa wa Kilimanjaro unapenda kuwatangazia wananchi wote,hususani Wafanyabiashara wa Sukari na Nafaka za Mpunga,Mchele ,Mahindi na Unga wa Mahindi ya kuwa ni marufuku kwa mfanyabiashara yoyote au mwananchi yoyote kusafirisha bidhaa hizo kwenda nje ya nchi bila kibali cha serikali”alisema Mkuu huyo wa Mkoa .
Alisema kukiuka agizo hilo ni kuhujumu uchumi wa nchi  kama ilivyo ainishwa kwenye kifungu cha 3 cha jedwali la kwanza la sheria ya uhujumu Uchumi sura ya 200 ya sheria za Tanzania na pia ni kukiuka agizo la Waziri Mkuu,kupitia waraka wake alioutoa  Mei 30,2017,uliozuia utokaji  wa vyakula na sukari kwenda nchi jirani .
Alisema kwa kukiuka sheria hiyo kunaweza kusababisha upungufu wa chakula kwenye baadhi ya maeneo nchini na kusababisha Mamlaka ya Mapato hapa nchini (TRA)  kukosa takwimu muhimu wa bidhaa zinazosafirishwa nje
“Ofisi ya Mkuu wa mkoa wa Kilimanjaro imejiridhisha kuwa baadhi ya wafanyabiashara wamekuwa wakisafirisha sukari  na nafaka hizo nyakati za usiku na hiki ndicho kinaleteleza kukosa takwimu muhimu kwa kupitia njia ambazo si rasmi kwa kushirikiana na baadhi ya askari polisi ambao sio waaminifu.
Wakati wa baraza la Idd lilifanyika kitaifa katika msikiti wa Riadha mjini Moshi,Waziri Mkuu ,Kassim Majaliwa alitangaza kupiga marufuku usafirishaji wa Mahindi kwenda nchi jirani na kwamba atakaye kiuka utaratibu huo atahukuliwa hatua kali za kisheria

          MKUTANO WA KITAIFA WA WADAU WA ELIMU NA CHAMA CHA WALIMU WAFANYIKA JIJINI DAR   

Mwakilishi kutoka Mtandao wa Kodi Tanzania (TTJC), Grace Masalakulangwa akiwasilisha ripoti ya utafiti ya One Billion Question iliyotafitiwa na shirika la ISCEJIE katika Mkutano uliowakutanisha wadau wa Elimu na Wenyeviti wa Chama cha Walimu ngazi ya mikoa ya Tanzania Bara  iliyofanyika jijini  Dar es Salaam. 
Afisa Mradi wa Elimu kutoka TENMET, Alistidia Kamugisha akifungua mkutano na kuwaelezea malengo ya mkutano huo wa siku mbili kwa wadau wa elimu na Chama cha Walimu Tanzania uliofanyika katika ukumbi wa Hoteli ya Blue Pearl jijini Dar es Salaam.
 Mratibu wa Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania (TENMET), Cathleen Sekwao akitoa mada kuhusu umuhimu wa ukusanyaji wa rasilimali za ndani na kuwekeza katika kuboresha sekta ya elimu hususani kwa mtoto wa kike na maslahi ya walimu katika mkutano uliowakutanisha wanachama wa chama cha walimu Tanzania (CWT/TTU).
Meneja Mradi wa Elimu kutoka shirika la ActionAid Tanzania Ndugu Karoli Kadeghe akiwasilisha changamoto zinazoikabili elimu msingi hapa nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na upungufu wa vyumba vya madarasa, upungufu wa walimu kwenye mkutano uliowakutanisha wadau wa elimu pamoja baadhi ya viongozi wa Chama cha Walimu ngazi ya mikoa ya Tanzania Bara  iliyofanyika jijini  Dar es Salaam. 
  Baadhi ya wadau wa elimu nchini Tanzania wakichangia mada kwenye mkutano uliowakutanisha ili kujadili kodi na ubora wa elimu hapa nchini Tanzania  kwenye mkutano uliofanyika jijini Dar 

Shirika la ActionAid-Tanzania, Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania, Shirika la Maendeleo ya Elimu Singida-MEDO na Mtandao wa Asasi za Kiraia-KINGONET  kwa pamoja wanatekeleza mradi wa uhamasishaji utoaji elimu bora kupitia rasilmali zetu wenyewe ( PROMOTING QUALITY EDUCATION THROUGH PROGRESSIVE DOMESTIC RESOURCE MOBILIZATION) unaotekelezwa huko Kilwa na Singida Vijijini kwa ngazi ya wilaya kwa kufanya kazi na kamati za shule na klabu za haki za watoto shuleni. Kitaifa MRADI Huo unalenga kufanya  utetezi wa mabadiliko ya kisera na sheria  hasa suala la ulipaji kodi, ukusanyaji kodi kwa haki (tax Justice), uzibaji wa mianya ya uvujaji wa kodi  ili makusanyo yaongezeke na yagharimie huduma bora kwa wananchi wa Tanzania hususani kuboresha utoaji wa Elimu bora Nchini.

Mratibu wa Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania Bi. Cathleen Sekwao akifungua mkutano huo aligusia pia kuhusu “utoaji wa huduma za jamii hapa nchini unakabiliwa na ufinyu wa fedha, wote tu mashahidi kuwa hadi kufikia mwezi Machi, 2017 serikali ilikuwa imetoa asilimia 34 tu ya bajeti yote ya 2016/2017. Jambo hili lina madhara makubwa katika utoaji wa huduma za jamii hasa elimu msingi yenye ubora  hasakwa mtoto wa kike”.
Aliongelea pia serikali kushindwa kutoa asilimia mia moja ya fedha za kutekeleza bajeti ya 2016/2017 tafiti zinaonyesha kuwa Tanzania inapoteza fedha nyingi kupitia misamaha ya kodi.

Meneja Mradi wa Elimu kutoka shirika la ActionAid Tanzania Ndugu Karoli Kadeghe aliwasilisha changamoto zinazoikabili elimu msingi hapa nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na: Upungufu wa vyumba vya madarasa, Upungufu wa ofisi za walimu, Upungufu wa vyoo vya wanafunzi,Uwiano usiokubalika kitaratibu wa mwalimu na wanafunzi, Shule nyingine kukosa kabisa walimu wa kike.

 Upungufu wa nyumba za walimu, fedha za ruzuku zisizotosheleza, utegemezi wa bajeti ya nchi za nje unaoathiri pia bajeti ya elimu na kusababisha Serikali kushindwa kugharimia kiufanisi utoaji wa elimu, mgawanyo wa ruzuku usiozingatia mahitaji halisi ya wenye uhitaji maalumu, jinsia na mahitaji ya kijiografia na pia shule changa na zile ambazo ni kongwe, Kuwa na mipango ya kibaguzi-Shule inayofanya vizuri ndiyo inapewa fedha(payment for results- P4R) kutoka mpango wa BRN bila kujali mizania ya usawa wa mazingira kati ya shule na shule, Kukosekana kwa mafunzo kazini kwa walimu, Kutopandishwa madaraja walimu, Kutolipwa kwa wakati stahiki za walimu wanaohamishwa/kustaafu mfano pesa ya usafiri.

Mratibu wa Inter Faith Standing Committee Bi. Grace Masalakulangwa aliwasilisha kuhusu Utafiti wa Ripoti ya “1 Billion Question” iliyojikita kubaini upotevu wa kodi katika sekta ya madini au uziduaji katika wilaya za Kilwa, Tarime na Geita. Utafiti huo umebaini serikali inapoteza takribani dola bilioni 1.83 sawa na Tsh trilioni 4.09 kwa mwaka kupitia misamaha ya kodi, uhamishaji wa fedha nje ya nchi bila kufuata utaratibu, kushindwa kutoza kodi sekta isiyo rasmi na aina nyingine za ukwepaji kodi.

Washiriki mbalimbali wakichangia katika mkutano huo, walishauri serikali kuboresha ukusanyaji wa kodi na utengaji wa bajeti katika sekta ya maendeleo hususani sekta ya elimu. Baadhi ya washiriki walichangia pia kukosekana kwa ufanisi na maendeleo yenye tija katika sekta ya Elimu kutokana na usimamizi mbovu wa elimu, serikali kushindwa kuwekeza katika elimu, kuwepo kwa wizara mbili zinazosimamia elimu na muda mwingine kuingiliana kwa majukumu pamoja na kutozingatiwa katika maslahi ya walimu.

Zeinab Badawi delves into the history of Africa for a brand new, eight-part series on BBC World News. The continent of Africa has a long, complex history, and its people built civilizations which rivalled those that existed anywhere else in the world. However, much of the continent’s history is not widely known, and what we are presented with often projects a distorted and partial picture. Sudan-born Zeinab travels to all four corners of Africa, interviewing African historians, archaeologists, and citizens whose accounts and stories paint a vivid picture of their continent's past and how it informs their present lives. It is a series that will inform, educate and entertain - Africa’s history told by Africans themselves.

 

Episodes

BBC World TV: Transmission dates (GMT)

   

1) Mother Africa

In the first episode Zeinab Badawi travels across the continent, examining the origins of humankind and how and why we evolved in Africa. During her journey Zeinab is granted rare access to the genuine bones of one of the most iconic discoveries in the field of palaeontology: Lucy in Ethiopia, or as she is known in Amharic ‘Dinkenesh' - which means 'you are marvellous’! Zeinab also spends time with a unique tribe in Tanzania, who provide insight into how we have lived, for most of our history, as hunter-gatherers. She also looks at what distinguishes us from the animal world and makes us human.

          Aid to the Church in Need gives thanks for record year of donations   

The funds helped finance 5,303 projects in 148 countries.

By Jürgen Liminski 

NEW YORK--In 2016, international Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) has once again raised a record total in donations. Last year, ACN brought in close to $148M, topping the 2015 total by $5.7M. This was the highest total ever raised in a year. The funds helped finance 5,303 projects in 148 countries.

More than a quarter of the grants were awarded for projects in located in Africa, where the Church is growing very fast. The continent accounts for more than a third of all grant applications.

Countries located in the Saharan zone receive particular attention, as do northern Nigeria, Kenya and Tanzania, all of which are countries where an aggressive form of Islam has been spreading.

Just behind funding for Africa came emergency and subsistence aid for Church communities in the Middle East, the cradle of Christianity. This support is vital for ensuring the survival of Christianity in the region. In the Middle East, Iraq and Syria received the most aid in 2016. This is of course due to the volatile political situation in these two nations.

More than $66M flowed into the crisis areas in the Middle East since 2011. This aid is expected to continue to grow exponentially in 2017 as ACN has launched a multi-million campaign to help displaced Christians return to their homes in areas newly liberated from the grip of ISIS.

As in the preceding years, the majority of the total aid was earmarked for rebuilding projects, which accounted for 30 percent of all spending; next came emergency aid for the Middle East and subsistence aid for women religious, as well as support for pastoral formation: some 30,000 catechists and pastoral agents around the world were among recipients of support.

In Central and Eastern Europe especially, the focus of the aid is shifting from building projects to training and continued education. The Balkan countries have moved to the center of attention in this part of the world, because radical forms of Islam are making itself felt there as well. Construction and repair of 1,200 chapels, churches, cathedrals and seminaries all over the world were financed in part by ACN, mostly in regions hard hit by natural disasters. One third of the building projects were in Africa.

Every ninth priest (or 43,015 in total) received help in the form of Mass stipends, especially in Africa (14,403) and Asia (11,293). That meant that every 22 seconds Mass was elebrated somewhere in the world for the intentions  of ACN donors. Aid was approved for 10,760 seminarians, a number equivalent to every eleventh seminarian worldwide. Most of them were preparing for the priesthood in Africa (4,667), Latin America (2,900) and Eastern Europe (1,577).

Training and/or subsistence aid was granted to 11,080 women religious, or every 62nd sister worldwide. In 2015, only every 67th sister received aid. In most cases, the help was in the form of subsistence aid for members of contemplative orders for women. Further funding was granted for to purchase 375 cars, 149 motorcycles and 239 bicycles as well as two boats.

ACN conducts fundraising through a network of national offices in 23 countries.

          President Magufuli, ban sexual violence, not teenage mothers from school   

Tanzania’s President John Magufuli is facing widespread criticism from human rights organizations following comments he made last Thursday at a public rally that girls who become pregnant should not be allowed to return to school.

President Magufuli was quoted as saying:

"In my administration, as long as I am president ... no pregnant student will be allowed to return to school. We cannot allow this immoral behaviour to permeate our primary and secondary schools ... never.”

"After calculating some few mathematics she’d be asking the teacher in the classroom ‘let me go out and breastfeed my crying baby’... After getting pregnant, you are done! 

“If we were to allow the girls back to school, one day we would find all girls in Standard One going home to nurse their babies.”

These worrying statements were backed up this week by Tanzania’s Home Affairs Minister, Mr Mwigulu Nchemba, who warned civil society organisations advocating for teenage mothers’ education that they would be deregistered if they continued campaigning on this issue.

Tanzania's ban on pregnant girls attending state primary and secondary schools dates back to 1961, and according to a 2013 report by the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR), more than 55,000 schoolgirls have been expelled from school over the last decade for being pregnant.

Although some more affluent families have been able to pay for their daughters to attend private school, the majority of girls have had to miss out on the rest of their education.

Civil society organizations including Equality Now argue that denying girls who have become mothers access to education is a violation of their human rights, and is a form of discrimination as highlighted by the United Nations Human Rights Council in their recent report: Realization of the equal enjoyment of the right to education by every girl.

The right to education plays a pivotal role in development, both of the individual and society. It opens up access to information on protection, opportunities and other fundamental rights, and is highly linked to personal, social and economic empowerment.

Barring teenage mothers from education not only perpetuates discriminatory gender norms, but is also an indication of government failures to address the root cause of widespread sexual violence against adolescent girls.

Efforts to eradicate violence against girls and women in Tanzania need to be increased, and laws against perpetrators of sexual violence have to be better enforced. More needs to be done also to alleviate the stigma and discrimination endured by pregnant girls and survivors of sexual violence and exploitation.

Girls’ human rights to health, life and right to equality and non-discrimination must be guaranteed by providing them with quality education, and to sexual and reproductive health care information, services and goods. 

The Tanzanian government and President John Magufuli should ensure that all school settings across the country are free from sexual violence and that holistic programming is in place to prevent and address sexual violence as outlined in the Global Guidance to Address School Related Gender Based Violence.

Description: https://ci6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/RnNZfQn2o2xpggJQqefCOervMbPIci5mujDPJnvl43kv6Rtxjyh5gHN_JKVzeU-aaGz3pePFgxfoAAtZJZNx8mveVTc-11j98EfuAJVcumUenA=s0-d-e1-ft#https://ssl.gstatic.com/ui/v1/icons/mail/images/cleardot.gifEducation is key to eliminating poverty and denial of education is counter to any proposals aiming to improve society. Around one in four females in Tanzania are illiterate and the country’s illiteracy rate rose by one per cent to reach 23 per cent in 2015. By only punishing pregnant girls and denying them their education, the government is penalizing them on the basis of gender and is curtailing their futures so they are likely to remain trapped in a cycle of poverty.

Providing access to child care for girls who become mothers should be a state priority, as should the provision of other vital support services so that they can return to school.  Of particular urgency is guaranteeing girls’ right to access post-rape healthcare information and services including those necessary to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, as well as ante-natal care.

President Magufuli’s comments go against the Tanzanian government's own policy and contradict the 2015 General Election campaign pledge of the ruling political party, Chama Cha Mapinduzi. They are also directly at odds with the commitments that Tanzania has already made by signing up to various regional and international pieces of legislation. These include the Maputo Protocol, which guarantees the rights of women and girls in Africa including their rights to education and training, and the Convention on Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), and The African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child, which clearly states that girls who get pregnant should be given an opportunity to access education.

People wanting to join the conversation on social media can use the hashtags #ArudiShule and #StopMagufuli, which are trending since last week. Many are urging President Magufuli to withdraw his damaging statements, lift the ban on teenage mothers accessing schools, and take all necessary steps to ensure the wellbeing and future prospects of all girls across Tanzania.

          President Magufuli is wrong on teenage mothers   

President John Magufuli of Tanzania recently made known his stand on the proposition by civil society groups in the country for the enactment of laws that will enable unwed pregnant teenage girls to return back to school. For President Magufuli, that proposal is not acceptable because if Tanzania allows  unwed teenage mothers “back to school, one day we will find all girls who are in Standard One have babies”. President Magufuli further accused NGOs active in Tanzania, especially those funded externally, of being responsible for pushing the agenda.

Most certainly, quite a few foreign NGOs are notorious for funding and pushing ideas which many African communities consider detrimental to their overall advancement. However, in this instance, President Magufuli might - for several good reasons - do well to step back and reassess his professed stand on the issue, for the greater good of Tanzania.

First, the number of teenage girls who get pregnant does not represent the number who are sexually active; many more teenage girls are sexually active and many do not get pregnant or if they do, are quick to procure an abortion. Indeed, it can be inferred that it is the “good” girls who are not street-wise and unable to find their way to procure an abortion, or are too scared to attempt one, or those from wretchedly poor homes, who do not have the connections or money to procure an abortion or take birth control measures, who get pregnant. In essence, many pregnant teenage girls are often victims of circumstances who, if given the opportunity to return to school after childbirth, are sober and able invest their best in their academics.

Further, boys and men who get teenage girls pregnant still roam the school halls or the streets, and although President Magufuli recommends a jail term for such offenders. It is doubtful whether Tanzania is equipped with the resources to catch all guilty runaway fathers. Accurately establishing the paternity of a child in contemporary times requires DNA testing, which remains quite a costly procedure even in advanced societies. The end result is that while the male offenders move on to impregnate the next girl, their victims end up bearing the burden of the act for the rest of their lives.

The dreams and aspirations of a young teenage girl ought not be sacrificed on the altar of adolescent misdemeanor. A second chance should most definitely be extended to these young women to advance intellectually. Although there is no looking down on the Vocational Education Training Centers (VETC) which President Magufuli advocates for pregnant teen mothers, the important aspect here is that it is against the will of these young women.  Forcing them into VETC will lead to more disgruntled members of society; depressed mothers raise social deviants. If mothers feel that they have missed out on life as a result of their children, there is every tendency for this feeling to reflect in the child rearing practices they adopt.

On the other hand, statistics show that when women are economically and academically empowered, and indeed have a strong sense of self-fulfillment, they raise children who are able to contribute more to society. Since many teenage girls women who carry pregnancies to birth are those from poor homes, who are unable to afford the cost of abortion, education remains the only pathway available to them for transcending their socio-economic status. Cutting off this hope by sending them to VETC might have negative impacts on whole families and for generations to come.

President Magufuli’s emphasis, perhaps, should be on ensuring that Tanzania’s education system promotes values, morals and such norms that keep pupils and students grounded and focused on higher ideals. Extra-curricular activities that keep pupils and students busy outside of the classroom should be strongly encouraged in addition to appropriate sex education at the right age, with the values of abstinence promoted, since it is what Tanzanian society and culture places emphasis upon.  The Swahili proverb, alimao ndio avunao captures it aptly: what one cultivates is what one harvests. Tanzania should invest resources in the training and building of teenagers who focus on personal growth and national transformation in order to harvest the benefits accruable from such investments.

MAPINDUZI (UVCCM) KWA VYOMBO VYA HABARI, IJUMAA30 JUNI 2017 UVCCM
UPANGA, DAR ES SALAAM
 

Ndugu Waandishi wa Habari

Kwa heshima kubwa tunawashukuru kwa dhati na kwa uungwana
wenu wa kuitikia wito wetu wa kuwaomba  kuhudhuria mkutano wetu huu  ili
kuzumgumza nanyi kama ilivyo ada na kawaida na hatimaye muweze
kufikisha ujumbe wetu kwa jamii na Taifa kwa ujumla.

 
Ndugu Wandishi wa Habari

Itakumbukwa  kuwa hivi karibuni katika moja ya  Baraza la
Idd El Fitri lililofanyika katika viwanja vya Mnazi Mmoja Jijijini Dar
es Salam, Rais Mstaafu wa Awamu ya Pili na Mwenyekiti Mstaafu wa CCM,
Mzee Ali Hassan Mwinyi, alitoa maoni yake binafsi  baada ya kuutazama,
kuudurusu na kuridhika  na utendaji wa Serikali ya Awamu ya tano
inayoongozwa na Rais Dk John Pombe Joseph Magufuli.
 

Ni ukweli usiofichika  wala kupingika kuwa  maoni ya Mzee
Mwinyi bila shaka yoyote yatakuwa yamepata mshawasha baada ya kuvutiwa
mno na uchapakazi wa Rais Magufuli, pia maoni hayo hayakuwa ni uamuzi
wala shuruti kama ambavyo baadhi ya watu walivyokishilia bango na
kulishupalia suala hilo kwa mtazamo hasi.

Maoni ya Mzee Mwinyi yalikuwa bayana au kwa lugha nyingine
ni maoni mubashara yanayoweza kumlazimisha kila binadamu mwenye akili
timamu afahamu kwa yakini alichotamka  katika matamshi yake. Alichosema
au kushauri ni  jambo lenye  mantiki kulingana na mtazamo wake  ambao
kwa hakika ulijiegemeza chini ya uhalisia wa mazingira ya nyakati na
utendaji wa Rais Dk John Pombe Joseph  Magufuli  kwa kadri
unavyoonekana.
 

Kwa bahati mbaya sana, eti wanaojiita ni wazee wa CHADEMA
bila kufanya tafakuri, uchambuzi wa maana katika dhana kamili yenye
uyakinifu wa jambo hilo, jana wakajikuta wakikurupuka, na kumuandama
Rais Mstaafu Mzee Ali Hassan Mwinyi bila ya kuwa na sababu za msingi kwa
kumtolea maneno yasiyo na kichwa wala miguu. 

Tokea Rais Dk  John Pombe Magufuli aingie madarakani
baada  kuchaguliwa kidemokrasia na wananchi mwaka 2015, sasa yapata
miaka miwili, utendaji wa Serikali yake ya awamu ya tano licha ya
kumvutia kila mtanzania, umeitikisa na kuamsha mjadala nchini, Afrika
Mashariki, Afrika na Dunia nzima .
 

Mjadala ni kuhusu kipimo cha utendaji wake unaochukua
nafasi pana katika vichwa vya  Magazeti ya nje na ndani, kwenye vipindi
vya runinga na mitandao ya kijamii,  Kitaifa na Kimataifa yote ikiwa ni
katika kuutazama uadilifu wake, uwazi na  uwajibikaji wa Serikali yake
chini ya misingi  ya uzalendo.
 

Watu mbalimbali wamekuwa wakijadili kutokana na
kushawishika kwao Rais Magufuli kuhusu umakini alionao, uchungu kwa nchi
yake na watu anaowaongoza akiwa na azma ya kupigania na kutetea maslahi
ya umma huku akitaka rasilimali za nchi kuinufaisha nchi na watu. 

Hakuna mtu au kiongozi  wa ndani au nje ya  chama tawala na
nje ya nchi waliotumwa wajadili wanavyojadili iwe kwa kumpongeza na
kumsifu kunakofanywa na watu hao.  

*Ndugu Waandishi wa Habari*

Waswahili wa kale na wahenga wana semi mashuhuri
isemayo“Kizuri hujiuuza na kibaya Hujitembeza”. Yaonekana ndivyo
inavyotokea kwa walimwengu wanavyoutazama na kuufuatilia uongozi wa
Awamu ya tano chini ya Rais Dk John Magufuli na Serikali yake katika
mtazamo chanya wenye  mafanikio. 
 

Alichokisema Mzee Mwinyi si kuwataka au kuwashawishi
wananchi kufanya mabadiliko ya Katiba hatimaye kumpa nafasi ya vipindi
vingine vya utawala Rais John Magufuli abaki madarakani kinyume na
matakwa ya Katiba ya Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania .

Matamshi ya Mzee wetu Ali Hassan Mwinyi aliyaweka bayana
akiyatanguliza  utangulizi wa maneno adhimu na dibaji yaliosema
nanukuulaiti nchi yetu isingelikuwa si yenye kufuata  utawala wa
kikatiba, Rais Dk John Magufuli alitosha na kufaa  kuongoza nchi yetu
kwa siku na miaka mingine.

Umoja wa Vijana ya CCM (UVCCM) hatuoni kama hilo ni kosa au
baa, ama iwe mwao au uonekane  uchuro kutokana na maneno hayo. Mzee Ali
Hassan Mwinyi ni mweledi, mlinzi mzuri wa Demokrasia na mtu anaheshimu
Katiba, Katu hakusema na kutaka Katiba ibadilishwe ili Rais abaki
madarakani kama inavyopotoshwa kauli yake.
 

Ndugu Waandishi wa Habari

Hata hivyo inaonyesha wanaojiita Wazee wa CHADEMA hawana
kumbukumbu ya kutosha. Wamesahau   Rais wa Awamu ya Kwanza Baba wa Taifa
marehemu  Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere alitawala kwa kipindi cha
miaka 23 tokea mwaka 1961 hadi mwaka 1985. 

Mwalimu Nyerere hakutawala miaka 23 kwa lazima yake, nguvu
za udikteta au kutumia misuli ya ubabe, alitawala  kwa matakwa, ridhaa,
utashi na maamuzi ya wana nchi wenyewe  ndiyo waliomshinikiza na
kumuomba kila wakati abaki madarakani kila alipopania kujiuzulu na
kumpisha mtu mwingine. 

Ifahakime kuwa Nchi yoyote na mahali popote, dunia
inahitaji ipate mtawala na utawala wenye tija, manufaa na maendeleo
yanayoonekana, kuwaridhisha au kuwapendezesha na kuwanufaisha wananchi.
 

Kushawishika na kuhamasika kwa wananchi na watu mbali mbali
juu ya kazi nzuri inayofanywa na Dkt. Magufuli nadhani imewakumba mpaka
Viongozi wenye nyadhifa mbali mbali katika Vyama Vya Siasa na makundi
mengine. Mfano siku za karibuni  kumekuwa na wimbi kubwa la wananchi na
wanachama wa Chadema wakiwemo madiwani sita kwa hiari na ridhaa yao
wameamua kuachia ngazi na kukikimbia Chadema wakirejea CCM kwa
kuridhika, kutosheka na utendaji wa Serikali ya Rais Dk John Magufuli. 

Wanaojiita Wazee wa Chadema ingelipendeza sana kama
wangekuwa na mapenzi na chama hicho wangalikaa chini kutafakari na
kutathmini sababu ipi inayowafanya wanachama, viongozi waandamizi  na
madiwani hasa katika Mkoa wa Arusha wakikimbie chama hicho na kurejea
CCM badala ya wazee hao kucheza ngoma isiowahusu.

Wote hapa tunaelewa Katiba ya nchi si Quran wala Bibilia.
Katiba imetungwa kutokana na maoni, weledi na utashi wa watu. Na watu
hao hao kwa kujali  kwao mahitaji na matakwa yao,  wanaweza kugeuza
chochote ndani ya katiba kwa kujali maslahi yao na wala  isiwe baa au
muujiza.

Umoja wa Vijana wa CCM unaamini ukishafikia hatua ya uzee
wakati mwingine unapoteza kumbukumbu muhimu, tunawakumbusha wanaojiita
wazee wa CHADEMA hakuna ushahidi  unaoonyesha  Mzee Mwinyi aliwahi kuwa
na mpango wa kutaka kujiongezea muda ili abaki madarakani kama
ilivyodaiwa na genge la Wazee hao. Kama mjuavyo kule Chadema kuna
maprofesa wa kuzua hili nalo Mzee Mwinyi wamemzulia na kumpakazia. 

Ingalikuwa Mzee Mwinyi alitamani kujiongezea muda ili
aendelee kubaki madarakani kwa wakati ule, angeweza kwa sababu uongozi
wake uliwakuna na kuwapendezesha mno wananchi mijini na vijijini na wala
isingelikuwa ni kazi kubwa ya kukubalika na kuungwa mkono . 

Zipo semi na hadithi nyingi zinazodai Mwalimu Nyerere
katika Kitabu chake cha Tanzania na Hatma ya Uongozi alikiandika kwa
lengo la kuwalenga viongozi  aliowakusudia kuwapasha na kutaka
wajisahihishe, kujisuta, kujiuzulu au kujirejebisha.

Ukweli ulivyo  si hivyo, Mwalimu kama Mwalimu
kitaaluma  aliandikia Kitabu chake kwa msukumo wa maono yake ili kuiasa
Wananchi wa Jiji la Mwanza wakiwa wamepanga  foleni nje ya Jengo la Ofisi za Mamlaka ya Mapato Tanzania Kanda ya Mwanza, kusubiri muda wao wa kwenda kulipia Kodi ya Majengo   ambayo leo Juni 30 ndio mwisho wa kulipia kwa wale ambao bado.

          HAYA NDO MASHITAKA 28 YANAYOMKABILI RAIS WA TFF JAMAL MALINZI   
Rais wa Shirikisho la Soka Tanzania (TFF), Jamal Malinzi hataweza kutetea nafasi yake hiyo katika Uchaguzi Mkuu uliopangwa kufanyika Agosti 12 mjini Dodoma.

Hiyo inatokana na kushindwa kufika kwenye usaili ulioanza jana na kumalizika kesho kwa kuwa yupo rumande akikabiliwa na kesi.

Mbali ya Malinzi, pia Makamu wa Rais wa Simba, Geofrey Nyange ‘Kaburu’ aliyekuwa akiwania nafasi ya Makamu wa Rais TFF, pia amepoteza nafasi hiyo kwa kuwa naye yupo rumande.

Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya Uchaguzi TFF, Revocatus Kuuli alisema mgombea ambaye atakosa kufika kwenye usaili katika muda huo atakuwa amejiondoa kwenye uchaguzi.

Malinzi, ambaye aliingia madarakani mwaka 2013 alikuwa akitetea kiti chake ambacho kingemfanya kuwa madarakani kwa miaka mingine minne iwapo angechaguliwa.

Jana, Malinzi (57), Katibu Mkuu wake, Mwesigwa Celestine (46) na Mhasibu, Nsiande Mwanga (27) walipandishwa kizimbani katika Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Kisutu wakikabiliwa na mashtaka mbalimbali ikiwamo ya kughushi na kutakatisha fedha dola za Marekani 375,418 (Sh840 milioni).

Malinzi anashtakiwa kwa makosa 28, huku wenzake wakishtakiwa kwa makosa yasiyozidi manne.

Katika shtaka la pili, Wakili Katuga alidai kuwa Septemba Mosi, 2016 katika benki ya Stanbic, tawi la Kinondoni, Mwesigwa aliwasilisha nyaraka hiyo ya kughushi.

Katika shtaka la 27, Swai alidai kuwa Malinzi na Mwesigwa katika kipindi hicho cha Septemba Mosi na Oktoba 19, 2016 katika benki ya Stanbic, tawi la kati la Kinondoni walijipatia dola 375,418 wakati wakijua fedha hizo zimetokana na kughushi.

Baada ya washtakiwa hao kusomewa mashtaka hayo yanayowakabili Wakili wa Serikali Mwandamizi, Kishenyi Mutalemwa aliiambia Mahakama kuwa upelelezi bado haujakamilika.

Jopo la mawakili wa utetezi likiongozwa na Jerome Msemwa na Aloyce Komba liliiomba Mahakama iwapatie dhamana washtakiwa hao lakini Mutalemwa na mawakili wenzake wa Serikali waandamizi, Christopher Msigwa na Pius Hilla walipinga dhamana kwa washtakiwa hao kwa madai kuwa mashtaka ya kutakatisha fedha yanayowakabili hayana dhamana.

Hakimu Wilbard Mashauri anayesikiliza kesi hiyo, aliiahirisha hadi Jumatatu ijayo atakapotoa uamuzi kama washtakiwa hao watapata dhamana hivyo, walipelekwa rumande. 

          MREMBO LISA JENSEN AKILI KUPUKUTIKA    
MISS Tanzania namba tatu mwaka 2006, Lisa Jensen ‘The Unique’ amekiri kufubaa na kupungukiwa na urembo wake uliotingisha miaka mitano iliyopita huku akitaja sababu zikiwa ni majukumu ya ndoa na malezi ya familia.

Akichonga na Star Mix baada ya kunaswa na paparazi wetu akiwa amepungua hivi karibuni pande za Msasani jijini Dar alipokuwa ameongozana na mawifi zake katika mtoko wa kawaida, Lisa alisema;



“Ujue kwa sasa nimekua, majukumu nayo ni mengi si unajua tena mambo ya ndoa, malezi kwa mtoto na maisha nayo yanahitaji ubize mwingi, siyo siri urembo na uzuri wangu wote umefifia , nadhani unanijua vyema nilivyokuwa nakimbiza, acha tuzeeke na kuwaachia wengine bwana.”

          UKAGUZI WA VYETI FEKI WAMLUDISHA SITTI MTEMVU SHULE   
Mrembo aliyewahi kushiriki shindano la Miss Tanzania mwaka 2014 na kushinda kisha kupokwa taji hilo, Sitti Mtemvu (Sitti), ameibuka na kuweka wazi kwamba alikuwa kimya muda mrefu kwa kuwa alirudi masomoni nchini Marekani kwa ajili ya kusaka cheti.

Sitti alisema wakati Rais Magufuli alivyoagiza wasio na vyeti wachunguzwe, aliamua kurudi chuoni nchini Marekani kwa ajili ya masomo na kupata vyeti kwa ajili ya kumsaidia kuendesha harakati alizokuwa amezianzisha baada ya kupokwa taji la Miss Tanzania kwa madai ya kudanganya umri mwaka 2014.
Sitti, ambaye alifanikiwa kushinda taji hilo kisha ushindi wake kutenguliwa na kupewa aliyekuwa mshindi wa pili, Lilian Kamazima, ameliambia gazeti la Mtanzania kuwa, kimya chake cha muda mrefu kitafikia kikomo hivi karibuni, atakapoendeleza harakati zake, ikiwamo uandishi wa kitabu chake cha Chozi la Sitti ni Kampuni yake.


“Kimya changu kwa muda mrefu ni kutokana na kurudi masomoni Marekani kisha kupata vyeti, lakini kwa sasa nimeshamaliza na mambo mbalimbali yataendelea, ikiwamo uzinduzi wa taasisi yangu ya Sitti,” alisema Sitti.

          Vitamin D Levels in Malnourished Children under 5 Years in a Tertiary Care Center at Muhimbili National Hospital, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania—A Cross-sectional Study   
Abstract
Objective: To evaluate vitamin D levels/deficiency among malnourished children <5 years admitted at a tertiary care center, the Muhimbili National Hospital, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Children with malnutrition may have co-existing vitamin D deficiency (VDD), which may be severe.Methods: Serum vitamin D and alkaline phosphatase were evaluated, and X-ray of the wrist was carried out on 134 children.Results: VDD was found in 41 of 134 children (30.6%). The mean vitamin D level was 74.8 nmol/l. The mean alkaline phosphatase level was 176.6 U/l. Sixty-four (48%) children were found to have severe stunting, of whom 20 (31.2%) were vitamin D deficient. Marasmic children had higher odds of VDD compared with other forms of malnutrition.Conclusion: The high prevalence of VDD in malnourished children underlines the need for active surveillance and aggressive management.

Afisa Mradi wa Elimu kutoka TENMET, Alistidia Kamugisha akifungua mkutano na kuwaelezea malengo ya mkutano huo wa siku mbili kwa wadau wa elimu na Chama cha Walimu Tanzania uliofanyika katika ukumbi wa Hoteli ya Blue Pearl jijini Dar es Salaam.
Mratibu wa Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania (TENMET), Cathleen Sekwao akitoa mada kuhusu umuhimu wa ukusanyaji wa rasilimali za ndani na kuwekeza katika kuboresha sekta ya elimu hususani kwa mtoto wa kike na maslahi ya walimu katika mkutano uliowakutanisha wanachama wa chama cha walimu Tanzania (CWT/TTU).
Meneja Mradi wa Elimu kutoka shirika la ActionAid Tanzania Ndugu Karoli Kadeghe akiwasilisha changamoto zinazoikabili elimu msingi hapa nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na upungufu wa vyumba vya madarasa, upungufu wa walimu kwenye mkutano uliowakutanisha wadau wa elimu pamoja baadhi ya viongozi wa Chama cha Walimu ngazi ya mikoa ya Tanzania Bara iliyofanyika jijini Dar es Salaam.
Baadhi ya wadau wa elimu nchini Tanzania wakichangia mada kwenye mkutano uliowakutanisha ili kujadili kodi na ubora wa elimu hapa nchini Tanzania kwenye mkutano uliofanyika jijini Dar
Shirika la ActionAid-Tanzania, Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania, Shirika la Maendeleo ya Elimu Singida-MEDO na Mtandao wa Asasi za Kiraia-KINGONET kwa pamoja wanatekeleza mradi wa uhamasishaji utoaji elimu bora kupitia rasilmali zetu wenyewe ( PROMOTING QUALITY EDUCATION THROUGH PROGRESSIVE DOMESTIC RESOURCE MOBILIZATION) unaotekelezwa huko Kilwa na Singida Vijijini kwa ngazi ya wilaya kwa kufanya kazi na kamati za shule na klabu za haki za watoto shuleni. Kitaifa MRADI Huo unalenga kufanya utetezi wa mabadiliko ya kisera na sheria hasa suala la ulipaji kodi, ukusanyaji kodi kwa haki (tax Justice), uzibaji wa mianya ya uvujaji wa kodi ili makusanyo yaongezeke na yagharimie huduma bora kwa wananchi wa Tanzania hususani kuboresha utoaji wa Elimu bora Nchini.

Mratibu wa Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania Bi. Cathleen Sekwao akifungua mkutano huo aligusia pia kuhusu “utoaji wa huduma za jamii hapa nchini unakabiliwa na ufinyu wa fedha, wote tu mashahidi kuwa hadi kufikia mwezi Machi, 2017 serikali ilikuwa imetoa asilimia 34 tu ya bajeti yote ya 2016/2017. Jambo hili lina madhara makubwa katika utoaji wa huduma za jamii hasa elimu msingi yenye ubora hasakwa mtoto wa kike”.

Aliongelea pia serikali kushindwa kutoa asilimia mia moja ya fedha za kutekeleza bajeti ya 2016/2017 tafiti zinaonyesha kuwa Tanzania inapoteza fedha nyingi kupitia misamaha ya kodi.

Meneja Mradi wa Elimu kutoka shirika la ActionAid Tanzania Ndugu Karoli Kadeghe aliwasilisha changamoto zinazoikabili elimu msingi hapa nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na: Upungufu wa vyumba vya madarasa, Upungufu wa ofisi za walimu, Upungufu wa vyoo vya wanafunzi,Uwiano usiokubalika kitaratibu wa mwalimu na wanafunzi, Shule nyingine kukosa kabisa walimu wa kike.

Upungufu wa nyumba za walimu, fedha za ruzuku zisizotosheleza, utegemezi wa bajeti ya nchi za nje unaoathiri pia bajeti ya elimu na kusababisha Serikali kushindwa kugharimia kiufanisi utoaji wa elimu, mgawanyo wa ruzuku usiozingatia mahitaji halisi ya wenye uhitaji maalumu, jinsia na mahitaji ya kijiografia na pia shule changa na zile ambazo ni kongwe, Kuwa na mipango ya kibaguzi-Shule inayofanya vizuri ndiyo inapewa fedha(payment for results- P4R) kutoka mpango wa BRN bila kujali mizania ya usawa wa mazingira kati ya shule na shule, Kukosekana kwa mafunzo kazini kwa walimu, Kutopandishwa madaraja walimu, Kutolipwa kwa wakati stahiki za walimu wanaohamishwa/kustaafu mfano pesa ya usafiri.

Mratibu wa Inter Faith Standing Committee Bi. Grace Masalakulangwa aliwasilisha kuhusu Utafiti wa Ripoti ya “1 Billion Question” iliyojikita kubaini upotevu wa kodi katika sekta ya madini au uziduaji katika wilaya za Kilwa, Tarime na Geita. Utafiti huo umebaini serikali inapoteza takribani dola bilioni 1.83 sawa na Tsh trilioni 4.09 kwa mwaka kupitia misamaha ya kodi, uhamishaji wa fedha nje ya nchi bila kufuata utaratibu, kushindwa kutoza kodi sekta isiyo rasmi na aina nyingine za ukwepaji kodi.

Washiriki mbalimbali wakichangia katika mkutano huo, walishauri serikali kuboresha ukusanyaji wa kodi na utengaji wa bajeti katika sekta ya maendeleo hususani sekta ya elimu. Baadhi ya washiriki walichangia pia kukosekana kwa ufanisi na maendeleo yenye tija katika sekta ya Elimu kutokana na usimamizi mbovu wa elimu, serikali kushindwa kuwekeza katika elimu, kuwepo kwa wizara mbili zinazosimamia elimu na muda mwingine kuingiliana kwa majukumu pamoja na kutozingatiwa katika maslahi ya walimu.

          MERCK LAUNCHES “MERCK MORE THAN A MOTHER” MEDIA RECOGNITION AWARDS 2017    
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, June 30, 2017 – Merck, a leading science and technology company, has launched media recognition awards dubbed the Merck More than a Mother Media Recognition Awards in order to award journalists and media students in East Africa who have done compelling, educative and informative stories that have shaped the conversation on infertility in Africa. The importance of journalism and the media today cannot be overlooked thus Merck thought it prudent to initiate a media competition to appreciate the good work being done by journalists and media students in the East African Region.

Speaking during the launch, Dr. Rasha Kelej the Chief Social Officer of Merck emphasized: “I created this campaign after I had seen women who suffered violence and discrimination due to their infertility. Infertile women in Africa suffer a lot due to their conditions, worst of all is that they are sometimes physically assaulted ostracized and even abandoned due to their infertility; this has to stop hence I believe the media can do a great job in ensuring that such stories are told so that these women can find the respect and the help they deserve, media is an essential player and critical partner to create any culture shift.”

The aim of the Awards is to raise awareness about the critical role the media can play in breaking the stigma around infertility. It also aims to change the culture of discrimination and abuse of infertile women while educating the public about infertility prevention, management and male infertility. In addition, the campaign aims to encourage men to discuss their infertility condition openly, support their wives through the journey of testing and treatment.

Merck emphasized in a statement circulated to the press: “We are happy to introduce these awards.. We believe that improving access as well as awareness to regulated and equitable fertility care is important, but it is even more important to intervene to decrease stigmatization and social suffering arising from this condition”.

“The media awards is the right step in making sure that fertility related stories are given good coverage and reported accurately and positively so that those who are suffering in silence can come out and seek help through medication or counseling. I am proud to be associated with this initiative and I look forward to the competition”.

Tom Mshindi, one of the judges emphasized: “I appreciate the role Merck is playing in combating the issue of infertility especially in rural Africa. This is an initiative that I fully endorse now that the media has also been incorporated in the greater goal of ensuring that stigmatization associated with infertility and its related complications are seriously addressed at all levels in society”.

Renee Ngamau who is also a judge in the competition stated, “As a woman this is an Initiative that I fully connect with and I firmly believe in the idea behind Merck More than a Mother campaign. The media must now take a front row in telling the stories of these women thus ensuring that we ease their suffering”.

The stories targeted are those of infertile women sharing their suffering and abuse by their husbands, families or communities due to their condition. It is very critical to share these stories with the public to build advocacy of the need to change such behavior and break this taboo in general. It will also provide a platform for those who have sought treatment to advise others on the journey and support those undergoing infertility treatments.

MERCK urged the Tanzanian health stakeholders, media and students alike to participate fully in the competion in order to reduce the stigma of infertility, create awareness and define interventions to improve access to better fertility care in Africa. “Let you voice heard and let’s work together to create a culture shift.

“Journalists should not only see this as competition with reward prizes, but also as an opportunity to be agents of change in the whole issue of infertility. It is definitely a big problem, thus stories need to be told and retold about it so that people are conversant with the suffering of women, men and families who are affected with infertility.”

Award winners will be picked by a judging panel which consists of experts from diverse professional backgrounds including journalists, communications experts and media managers, will walk away with cash prizes as high $5,000. The categories are divided into two mainly Journalists & students and into subcategories of multimedia print radio & online.

The prize awards for journalists will include Multimedia story - USD 5000, print 1500, radio 1500 and Online USD 1500. For students; Multimedia will win USD 3000, print 1000, radio 1000 and Online USD 1000.

The Award is open to print, video broadcast, photo journalists and media students whose stories appear in newspapers, websites, blogs and television and that target the public.

          MKUU WA MKOA WA KILIMANJARO ANNA MGHWIRA, ASHUHUDIA MAGARI 103 YAKIWA NA SHEHENA YA MAHINDI NJIA PANDA YA HIMO   
Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Kilimanjaro Anna Mghwira akiwa ameongozana na baadhi ya wajumbe wa kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro wakiwemo Kamanda wa Polisi, Hamis Issah na Mkuu wa wilaya ya Moshi, Kippi Warioba wakitembelea maeneo ambayo yameshikiliwa magari yaliyobeba shehena ya Mahindi.
Baadhi ya Wafanyabiashara ambao Mahindi yao yanashikiliwa katika eneo la Njia Panda mkoani Kilimanjaro wakimsikiliza Mkuu wa mkoa wa Kilimanjaro Anna Mghwira alipofika eneo hilo kwa lengo la kuzungumza nao.

Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Kilimanjaro,Anna Mghwira akizungumza na baadhi ya madereva na Wafanyabaisahara ambao Mahindi yao yanashikiliwa eneo la Njia Panda ya Himo.

Na Dixon Busagaga wa Globu ya Jamii ,Kanda ya Kaskazini.

ENEO la njia Panda linalounganisha barabara za Moshi/Arusha,Tanga/Dar es Salaam na ile ya Holili mpakani mwa nchi jirani ya Kenya linatajwa kama kituo kikuu cha Malori yanayosafirisha Nafaka kwenda nchi jirani ya Kenya.

Uchunguzi uliofanywa na Globu ya Jamii umebaini kuwepo kwa maeneo yasiyo rasmi ya kuegesha Malori hayo, mengine yakiwa na Matela yake ,ambako shughuli za kupakua mahindi na kupakia katika Magari Madogo aina ya fuso zinazotoka nchi jirani ya Kenya hufanyika.

Maeneo mengine yanayotajwa kuwepo na Magulio ya Mahindi ni katika sehemu za maegesho ya magari zilizopo katika vituo mbalimbali vya kuuza Mafuta ,pamoja na baadhi ya nyumba za wageni ambazo zimegeuzwa Maghala ya kuhifadhia Mahindi.

Magari zaidi ya 103 yanashikiiwa katika maeneo ya Njia Panda na Himo yakiwa yamebeba Shehena ya Mahindi tayari kusafirishwa huku baadhi ya madereva wakiyatelekeza Malori yao kwa siku ya tano sasa na kwenda kusiko julikana.

Hatua iliwasukuma Wafanyabiashara wa Mahindi pamoja na Madereva kufika ofisi za Mkuu wa mkoa kuwasilisha malalamiko yao juu ya kukamatwa kwa Malori hayo yakiwa Njia Panda badala ya mpakani kama alivyo agiza Waziri Mkuu,Kassim Majaliwa.

Wakizungumza nje ya jingo la ofisi ya Mkuu wa Mkoa,Wafanyabiashara hao ,Laurance Kanyota, Nuru Madai na Mariam Ramadhan walisema wameshangazwa na hatua ya jeshi la Polisi kushikilia magari yao yalikuwa na Mahindi yakisafirishwa kuelekea mikoa ya Arusha na Moshi.

“Magari yetu yapo pale Sheli Maount Meru, yalitokea Tunduma kwenda Arusha, yalipofika pale siku ya Jumamosi madereva walienda kula siku kuu ya Idd, jana (Juzi) asubuhi Matandiboi wakapiga simu kwamba tumezungukwa na Polisi, tukaenda pale tukaonana na OCD tukaliza kwanini mnatushikia magari ambayo yako Njia Panda yanayoenda Arusha au Moshi, wakajibu tumetumwa kushika magari yote ya Mahindi.” alisema Mfanyabiashara Mariam.

Alisema alimuelewa Waziri Mkuu katika agizo lake kwamba magari yaliyopo mpakani ndio yashikiliwe na si kama lilivyofanya jeshi la Polisi kukamata magari yaliyokuwa Njia Panda kuelekea Moshi na Arusha huku wakimuomba Waziri Mkuu kutoa ufafanuzi kwa wasaidizi wake juu ya agizo lake.

Mfanyabiashara Kanyota alisema amekuwa akifanya biashara ya kusafirisha mazao kwa njia halali ikiwa ni pamoja na ulipaji wa kodi lakini anashangazwa na hatua ya kuzuiliwa kwa Mahindi yake ambayo amekuwa akinunua na kuyauza katika viwanda vya kutengeneza unga kwa ajili ya Chakula.

“Tulikua tunaomba Mkuu wa mkoa ajue kwamba sisi ni wafanyabiashara tunaolipa kodi halali ya serikali atusaidie tufikishe mazao yetu sehemu yanapotakiwa kufika, Mahindi yangu yanatoka Mbeya ,mkulima aiyeniletea mimi kama Dalali ametoka Tunduma.” alisema Kanyota.

Kauli ya Serikali ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro.

Kamati ya ulinzi na usalama mkoa wa Kilimanjaro imepigiria msumari katika Agizo la Waziri Mkuu, Kassim Majaliwa la kutaifisha Mahindi pamoja na gari litakalokutwa kuanzia June 26 mwka huu likiwa limebeba na kusafirisha Mahindi kwenda nje ya nchi.

Mkuu wa mkoa wa Kilimajaro Anna Mghwira ambaye pia ni Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa alisema jana ofisini kwake mbele ya waandishi wa habari kuwa magari 103 yaliyokamatwa Himo na Njia Panda yatahesabiwa kama sehemu ya uhujumu uchumi na kwamba yatataifishwa.

“Magari yaliyokamatwa kule Siha, tayari tulikwisha amua kwamba yatapelekwa Nationa Milling(Ghala la chakula la taifa) Arusha ,lakini haya ya Himo ,Waziri Mkuu Alisha agiza kwamba kuanzia tarehe 26, magari yote yatakayokamatwa ,Bidhaa pamoja na magari yenyewe yatahesabiwa kuwa ni sehemu ya uhujumu Uchumi ,kwa hiyo yatataifishwa.” alisema Mghwira.

Mghwira alisema baada ya mfululizo wa vikao vya kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro juu swala zima la uuzaji na usafirishaji wa chakula nje ya nchi,kamati imefanyia kazi tamko la Waziri Mkuu kutaka kujiridhisha vya kutosha juu ya hali ya chakula iliyopo Kilimanjaro na mikoa ya jirani.

“Uogozi wa mkoa wa Kilimanjaro unapenda kuwatangazia wananchi wote,hususani Wafanyabiashara wa Sukari na Nafaka za Mpunga, Mchele ,Mahindi na Unga wa Mahindi ya kuwa ni marufuku kwa mfanyabiashara yoyote au mwananchi yoyote kusafirisha bidhaa hizo kwenda nje ya nchi bila kibali cha serikali” alisema Mkuu huyo wa Mkoa .

Alisema kukiuka agizo hilo ni kuhujumu uchumi wa nchi kama ilivyo ainishwa kwenye kifungu cha 3 cha jedwali la kwanza la sheria ya uhujumu Uchumi sura ya 200 ya sheria za Tanzania na pia ni kukiuka agizo la Waziri Mkuu, kupitia waraka wake alioutoa Mei 30,2017, uliozuia utokaji wa vyakula na sukari kwenda nchi jirani .

Alisema kwa kukiuka sheria hiyo kunaweza kusababisha upungufu wa chakula kwenye baadhi ya maeneo nchini na kusababisha Mamlaka ya Mapato hapa nchini (TRA) kukosa takwimu muhimu wa bidhaa zinazosafirishwa nje

“Ofisi ya Mkuu wa mkoa wa Kilimanjaro imejiridhisha kuwa baadhi ya wafanyabiashara wamekuwa wakisafirisha sukari na nafaka hizo nyakati za usiku na hiki ndicho kinaleteleza kukosa takwimu muhimu kwa kupitia njia ambazo si rasmi kwa kushirikiana na baadhi ya askari polisi ambao sio waaminifu.

Wakati wa baraza la Idd lilifanyika kitaifa katika msikiti wa Riadha mjini Moshi,Waziri Mkuu, Kassim Majaliwa alitangaza kupiga marufuku usafirishaji wa Mahindi kwenda nchi jirani na kwamba atakaye kiuka utaratibu huo atahukuliwa hatua kali za kisheria.

Na Atley Kuni- Mwanza.

Serikali mkoani hapa, imewapa jukumu kubwa viongozi wa dini kutoka baadhi ya mikoa ya kanda ya ziwa kuhakikisha wanakuwa bega kwa bega katika kulitunza ziwa Viktoria na Maliasili zake ili liweze kuwa tegemeo kwa kizazi cha sasa na kijacho.

Akifungua Semina ya siku moja mkoani hapa Mkuu wa mkoa wa Mwanza John Mongella, na risala yake kusomwa na Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Mara Dkt. Charles Mlingwa, Mongella amesema, viongozi wa dini wanalo jukumu kubwa kwani wao husimamia imani za watu. “Ninyi Viongozi wa dini dhima mliyonayo ndani ya jamii ni kubwa sana na chochote mtakacho waelekeza waumini wenu lazima waweze kukitekeleza, hivyo niwaombe sana viongozi wangu tulilinde ziwa viktoria kwa jitihada zetu zote’’ alisema Mongella.

Aidha Mongella amesema kuwa, kuwepo kwa Ziwa Victoria ni fursa ya uendelezaji ya kauli mbiu ya “Tanzania ya Viwanda” ambayo Serikali ya awamu ya Tano inasisitiza, “Ziwa hili linasaidia upatikanaji wa rasilimali zinazotumika kwa matumizi ya nyumbani na viwandani, usafiri na usafirishaji na uzalishaji wa nishati ya umeme Hivyo basi hatuna budi kuhifadhi mazingira ya Ziwa na Bonde lake” amesisitiza Mkuu huyo wa mkoa.

Kwa upande wao, viongozi wa dini wakiongea wamesema, wao wanatambua na hata vitabu vya dini vinaelekeza juu ya mwanadamu anachopaswa kufanya katika kulinda mazingira ikiwepo ziwa Viktoria.

Mwenyekiti mwenza wa Kamati ya amani ya madhehebu ya dini katika Mkoa wa Mwanza, Sheik Hassan Kabeke, amesema katika Uislam na hususan ni katika mafundisho ya Mtume Muhama S.A.W, inafafanua juu ya mito miwili yaani mto Nile na Furabu ambayo mtume aliipitia huku akisema kwamba, Mto Nile ambao unafungamanishwa na Ziwa Viktoria Mtume amesisitiza kuyatunza mazingira, “Katika kupanda miti kwenye uislamu mtu hupata thawabu, tunaimani kabisa kwamba kila mmoja wetu akitunza mazingira ni sehemu ya Ibada, amesema Kabeke.

Naye Baba Askofu Michael Msonganzila wa Jimbo Katoliki la Musoma, kwa upande wake amesema kwa habari ya mazingira, tunaona ni jukumu la jamii nzima bila kujali itikadi zetu “ Kukutana kwetu hapa tunataka kuangalia nikwa namna gani tutaziangazia sababu za kiuchumi na kijamii, alisema Msonganzila na kuongeza kwamba kwa sasa wao katika Mkoa wa Mara wanayo kampeni kwenye eneo la Serengeti ambayo wanaendelea kuelimisha jamii juu ya umuhimu wa Utunzaji wa mazingira na mabadiliko ya hali ya nchi.

Mradi wa Hifadhi ya Mazingira wa Ziwa Victoria (LVEMP II) utakamilika mwezi Disemba, 2017, aidha warsha hiyo ni kati ya warsha nne zilizoandaliwa na Mradi kwa madhumuni ya kukusanya maoni ya wadau ambayo yatawezesha kuandaa awamu ijayo ya Mradi inayotarajiwa kuanza kutekelezwa kuanzia mwaka 2018.

Kikao hicho kimewakutanisha Wakuu wa Mikoa, Makatibu Tawala wa Mikoa pamoja na Viongozi wa dini kutoka mikoa ya Mwanza, Geita, Kagera, Simiyu na Mara.

Baadhi ya Magari yakiwa yameegeshwa katika maeneo tofauti tofauti yakiwa na shehena ya Mahindi.

Na Dixon Busagaga wa Globu ya Jamii ,Kanda ya Kaskazini.


ENEO la njia Panda linalounganisha barabara za Moshi/Arusha,Tanga/Dar es Salaam na ile ya Holili mpakani mwa nchi jirani ya Kenya linatajwa kama kituo kikuu cha Malori yanayosafirisha Nafaka kwenda nchi jirani ya Kenya.
Uchunguzi uliofanywa na Globu ya Jamii umebaini kuwepo kwa maeneo yasiyo rasmi ya kuegesha Malori hayo ,mengine yakiwa na Matela yake ,ambako shughuli za kupakua mahindi na kupakia katika Magari Madogo aina ya fuso zinazotoka nchi jirani ya Kenya hufanyika.
Maeneo mengine yanayotajwa kuwepo na Magulio  ya Mahindi ni katika sehemu za maegesho ya magari  zilizopo katika  vituo mbalimbali vya kuuza Mafuta ,pamoja na baadhi ya nyumba za wageni ambazo zimegeuzwa Maghala ya kuhifadhia Mahindi.
Magari zaidi ya 103 yanashikiiwa katika maeneo ya Njia Panda na Himo yakiwa yamebeba Shehena ya Mahindi tayari kusafirishwa huku baadhi ya madereva wakiyatelekeza Malori yao kwa siku ya tano sasa na kwenda kusiko julikana .
Hatua iliwasukuma Wafanyabiashara wa Mahindi pamoja na Madereva kufika ofisi za Mkuu wa mkoa kuwasilisha malalamiko yao juu ya kukamatwa kwa Malori hayo yakiwa Njia Panda badala ya mpakani kama alivyo agiza Waziri Mkuu,Kassim Majaliwa.
Wakizungumza nje ya jingo la ofisi ya Mkuu wa Mkoa,Wafanyabiashara hao ,Laurance Kanyota,Nuru Madai na Mariam Ramadhan walisema wameshangazwa na hatua ya jeshi la Polisi kushikilia magari yao yalikuwa na Mahindi yakisafirishwa kuelekea mikoa ya Arusha na Moshi.
“Magari yetu yapo pale Sheli Maount Meru,yalitokea Tunduma kwenda Arusha,yalipofika pale siku ya Jumamosi madereva walienda kula siku kuu ya Idd,jana (Juzi) asubuhi  Matandiboi wakapiga simu kwamba tumezungukwa na Polisi ,tukaenda pale tukaonana na OCD tukaliza kwanini mnatushikia magari ambayo yako Njia Panda yanayoenda Arusha au Moshi ,wakajibu tumetumwa kushika magari yote ya Mahindi.”alisema Mfanyabiashara Mariam.
Alisema alimuelewa Waziri Mkuu katika agizo lake kwamba magari yaliyopo mpakani ndio yashikiliwe  na si kama lilivyofanya jeshi la Polisi kukamata magari yaliyokuwa Njia Panda kuelekea Moshi na Arusha huku wakimuomba Waziri Mkuu kutoa ufafanuzi  kwa wasaidizi wake juu ya agizo lake.
Mfanyabiashara Kanyota alisema amekuwa akifanya biashara ya kusafirisha mazao kwa njia halali ikiwa ni pamoja na ulipaji wa kodi lakini anashangazwa na hatua ya kuzuiliwa kwa  Mahindi yake ambayo amekuwa akinunua na kuyauza katika viwanda vya kutengeneza unga kwa ajili ya Chakula.
“Tulikua tunaomba Mkuu wa mkoa ajue kwamba sisi ni wafanyabiashara tunaolipa kodi halali ya serikali atusaidie tufikishe mazao yetu sehemu yanapotakiwa kufika ,Mahindi yangu yanatoka Mbeya ,mkulima aiyeniletea mimi kama Dalali ametoka Tunduma.”alisema Kanyota.
Kauli ya Serikali ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro.
Kamati ya ulinzi na usalama mkoa wa Kilimanjaro imepigiria msumari katika Agizo la Waziri Mkuu, Kassim Majaliwa la kutaifisha Mahindi pamoja na gari litakalokutwa kuanzia June 26 mwka huu likiwa limebeba na kusafirisha Mahindi kwenda nje  ya nchi.
Mkuu wa mkoa wa Kilimajaro Anna Mghwira  ambaye pia ni Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa alisema jana ofisini kwake mbele ya waandishi wa habari kuwa magari 103 yaliyokamatwa Himo na Njia Panda yatahesabiwa kama sehemu ya uhujumu uchumi na kwamba yatataifishwa .
“Magari yaliyokamatwa kule Siha ,tayari tulikwisha amua kwamba yatapelekwa Nationa Milling(Ghala la chakula la taifa)  Arusha ,lakini haya ya Himo ,Waziri Mkuu Alisha agiza kwamba kuanzia tarehe 26 ,magari yote yatakayokamatwa ,Bidhaa pamoja na magari yenyewe yatahesabiwa kuwa ni sehemu ya uhujumu Uchumi ,kwa hiyo yatataifishwa.”alisema Mghwira.
Mghwira alisema baada ya mfululizo wa vikao vya kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro juu swala zima la uuzaji na usafirishaji wa chakula nje ya nchi,kamati imefanyia kazi tamko la Waziri Mkuu kutaka kujiridhisha vya kutosha juu ya hali ya chakula iliyopo Kilimanjaro na mikoa ya jirani.
“Uogozi wa mkoa wa Kilimanjaro unapenda kuwatangazia wananchi wote,hususani Wafanyabiashara wa Sukari na Nafaka za Mpunga,Mchele ,Mahindi na Unga wa Mahindi ya kuwa ni marufuku kwa mfanyabiashara yoyote au mwananchi yoyote kusafirisha bidhaa hizo kwenda nje ya nchi bila kibali cha serikali”alisema Mkuu huyo wa Mkoa .
Alisema kukiuka agizo hilo ni kuhujumu uchumi wa nchi  kama ilivyo ainishwa kwenye kifungu cha 3 cha jedwali la kwanza la sheria ya uhujumu Uchumi sura ya 200 ya sheria za Tanzania na pia ni kukiuka agizo la Waziri Mkuu,kupitia waraka wake alioutoa  Mei 30,2017,uliozuia utokaji  wa vyakula na sukari kwenda nchi jirani .
Alisema kwa kukiuka sheria hiyo kunaweza kusababisha upungufu wa chakula kwenye baadhi ya maeneo nchini na kusababisha Mamlaka ya Mapato hapa nchini (TRA)  kukosa takwimu muhimu wa bidhaa zinazosafirishwa nje
“Ofisi ya Mkuu wa mkoa wa Kilimanjaro imejiridhisha kuwa baadhi ya wafanyabiashara wamekuwa wakisafirisha sukari  na nafaka hizo nyakati za usiku na hiki ndicho kinaleteleza kukosa takwimu muhimu kwa kupitia njia ambazo si rasmi kwa kushirikiana na baadhi ya askari polisi ambao sio waaminifu.
Wakati wa baraza la Idd lilifanyika kitaifa katika msikiti wa Riadha mjini Moshi,Waziri Mkuu ,Kassim Majaliwa alitangaza kupiga marufuku usafirishaji wa Mahindi kwenda nchi jirani na kwamba atakaye kiuka utaratibu huo atahukuliwa hatua kali za kisheria.
Mwisho.



          WADAU WA ELIMU NA CHAMA CHA WALIMU WAKUTANA KUJADILI KUHUSU KODI NA UBORA WA ELIMU NCHINI TANZANIA ELIMU   
Mwakilishi kutoka Mtandao wa Kodi Tanzania (TTJC), Grace Masalakulangwa akiwasilisha ripoti ya utafiti ya One Billion Question iliyotafitiwa na shirika la ISCEJIE katika Mkutano uliowakutanisha wadau wa Elimu na Wenyeviti wa Chama cha Walimu ngazi ya mikoa ya Tanzania Bara  iliyofanyika jijini  Dar es Salaam. 
Afisa Mradi wa Elimu kutoka TENMET, Alistidia Kamugisha akifungua mkutano na kuwaelezea malengo ya mkutano huo wa siku mbili kwa wadau wa elimu na Chama cha Walimu Tanzania uliofanyika katika ukumbi wa Hoteli ya Blue Pearl jijini Dar es Salaam.
 Mratibu wa Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania (TENMET), Cathleen Sekwao akitoa mada kuhusu umuhimu wa ukusanyaji wa rasilimali za ndani na kuwekeza katika kuboresha sekta ya elimu hususani kwa mtoto wa kike na maslahi ya walimu katika mkutano uliowakutanisha wanachama wa chama cha walimu Tanzania (CWT/TTU).
Meneja Mradi wa Elimu kutoka shirika la ActionAid Tanzania Ndugu Karoli Kadeghe akiwasilisha changamoto zinazoikabili elimu msingi hapa nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na upungufu wa vyumba vya madarasa, upungufu wa walimu kwenye mkutano uliowakutanisha wadau wa elimu pamoja baadhi ya viongozi wa Chama cha Walimu ngazi ya mikoa ya Tanzania Bara  iliyofanyika jijini  Dar es Salaam. 
  Baadhi ya wadau wa elimu nchini Tanzania wakichangia mada kwenye mkutano uliowakutanisha ili kujadili kodi na ubora wa elimu hapa nchini Tanzania  kwenye mkutano uliofanyika jijini Dar 

Shirika la ActionAid-Tanzania, Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania, Shirika la Maendeleo ya Elimu Singida-MEDO na Mtandao wa Asasi za Kiraia-KINGONET  kwa pamoja wanatekeleza mradi wa uhamasishaji utoaji elimu bora kupitia rasilmali zetu wenyewe ( PROMOTING QUALITY EDUCATION THROUGH PROGRESSIVE DOMESTIC RESOURCE MOBILIZATION) unaotekelezwa huko Kilwa na Singida Vijijini kwa ngazi ya wilaya kwa kufanya kazi na kamati za shule na klabu za haki za watoto shuleni. Kitaifa MRADI Huo unalenga kufanya  utetezi wa mabadiliko ya kisera na sheria  hasa suala la ulipaji kodi, ukusanyaji kodi kwa haki (tax Justice), uzibaji wa mianya ya uvujaji wa kodi  ili makusanyo yaongezeke na yagharimie huduma bora kwa wananchi wa Tanzania hususani kuboresha utoaji wa Elimu bora Nchini.

Mratibu wa Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania Bi. Cathleen Sekwao akifungua mkutano huo aligusia pia kuhusu “utoaji wa huduma za jamii hapa nchini unakabiliwa na ufinyu wa fedha, wote tu mashahidi kuwa hadi kufikia mwezi Machi, 2017 serikali ilikuwa imetoa asilimia 34 tu ya bajeti yote ya 2016/2017. Jambo hili lina madhara makubwa katika utoaji wa huduma za jamii hasa elimu msingi yenye ubora  hasakwa mtoto wa kike”.
Aliongelea pia serikali kushindwa kutoa asilimia mia moja ya fedha za kutekeleza bajeti ya 2016/2017 tafiti zinaonyesha kuwa Tanzania inapoteza fedha nyingi kupitia misamaha ya kodi.

Meneja Mradi wa Elimu kutoka shirika la ActionAid Tanzania Ndugu Karoli Kadeghe aliwasilisha changamoto zinazoikabili elimu msingi hapa nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na: Upungufu wa vyumba vya madarasa, Upungufu wa ofisi za walimu, Upungufu wa vyoo vya wanafunzi,Uwiano usiokubalika kitaratibu wa mwalimu na wanafunzi, Shule nyingine kukosa kabisa walimu wa kike.

 Upungufu wa nyumba za walimu, fedha za ruzuku zisizotosheleza, utegemezi wa bajeti ya nchi za nje unaoathiri pia bajeti ya elimu na kusababisha Serikali kushindwa kugharimia kiufanisi utoaji wa elimu, mgawanyo wa ruzuku usiozingatia mahitaji halisi ya wenye uhitaji maalumu, jinsia na mahitaji ya kijiografia na pia shule changa na zile ambazo ni kongwe, Kuwa na mipango ya kibaguzi-Shule inayofanya vizuri ndiyo inapewa fedha(payment for results- P4R) kutoka mpango wa BRN bila kujali mizania ya usawa wa mazingira kati ya shule na shule, Kukosekana kwa mafunzo kazini kwa walimu, Kutopandishwa madaraja walimu, Kutolipwa kwa wakati stahiki za walimu wanaohamishwa/kustaafu mfano pesa ya usafiri.

Mratibu wa Inter Faith Standing Committee Bi. Grace Masalakulangwa aliwasilisha kuhusu Utafiti wa Ripoti ya “1 Billion Question” iliyojikita kubaini upotevu wa kodi katika sekta ya madini au uziduaji katika wilaya za Kilwa, Tarime na Geita. Utafiti huo umebaini serikali inapoteza takribani dola bilioni 1.83 sawa na Tsh trilioni 4.09 kwa mwaka kupitia misamaha ya kodi, uhamishaji wa fedha nje ya nchi bila kufuata utaratibu, kushindwa kutoza kodi sekta isiyo rasmi na aina nyingine za ukwepaji kodi.

Washiriki mbalimbali wakichangia katika mkutano huo, walishauri serikali kuboresha ukusanyaji wa kodi na utengaji wa bajeti katika sekta ya maendeleo hususani sekta ya elimu. Baadhi ya washiriki walichangia pia kukosekana kwa ufanisi na maendeleo yenye tija katika sekta ya Elimu kutokana na usimamizi mbovu wa elimu, serikali kushindwa kuwekeza katika elimu, kuwepo kwa wizara mbili zinazosimamia elimu na muda mwingine kuingiliana kwa majukumu pamoja na kutozingatiwa katika maslahi ya walimu.

          Interim Rector Called for King of Peace   
The vestry (church board) of King of Peace announces that it has called the Rev. Douglas Renegar to serve during the 12-18 months needed for a search process for a new pastor and president.

Father Renegar grew up in a military family, graduating from high school in Nebraska. He was a teacher and principal prior to his attending to seminary and has a Masters in Education from East Carolina University. Ordained in 1984, he served churches in South Carolina and Virginia before coming to south Georgia to be Rector of historic Christ Church Frederica on Saint Simons Island. After more than a decade there, he worked for the church in Tanzania and at the United Nations. He has one grown daughter. Father Renegar will begin his work at King of Peace on July 11.

The contract is for six months and will be renewed one or two times as needed on mutual review by Father Renegar and the Vestry. Many of of the congregation will remember Father Renegar, as he celebrated and preached on the Sunday after Easter when I was away to officiate at a wedding in Rome, Georgia. Father Renegar will also be with us on June 13, for my last Sunday, to celebrate the Liturgy of the Word. I will preach and celebrate the liturgy of the table. I am thankful that we have such a good and faithful priest on board as interim.

I know that some anticipate a church will dwindle some during an interim. But with Father Renegar as the interim and the many gifted members of King of Peace still continuing as they have in leading music, greeting and welcoming newcomers and so on, I anticipate continued strength and growth.

Farewell Event, Thursday 6-8 p.m.
There is a farewell reception at King of Peace tomorrow evening and all in the community are invited to attend. It will be a time for giving thanks for what God has done in our midst this past decade.

          JUMA NATURE ADAIWA KUMTELEKEZA MTOTO WAKE.   


Juma Nature.
Samson mtoto anayedai Juma Nature ni baba yake.
Juma Kassim Ally alias Juma Nature ambaye ni Hip Hop Artist na Singer toka Tanzania pia ni founder na member wa kundi la Wanaume Halisi hivi karibuni amekutwa na tuhuma za kumtelekeza mwanae wa kiume.
Kutokana na swala hili, hitmaker wa “Hili Game” anaweza akajikuta matatani soon na Ustawi wa jamii baada ya kumkataa mtoto anayedai msanii huyo ni baba yake mzazi.
Mtoto huyo mwenye umri wa miaka 17 aitwaye Samson Juma Kassim Kiroboto ameamua kusafiri toka mkoani Morogoro na kuja Dar es Salaam kuweza kumfata Baba yake.
Samson alilazimika kwenda Clouds Fm Radio ili aweze kupata msaada kwa jinsi atakavyoweza kumpata baba yake huyo, anasema mama yake alishafariki Dunia hivyo anamuhitaji Baba yake ili maisha yaendelee.
Hata hivyo katika jitihada za Kumtafuta Juma Nature, Samson anasema “mama yangu ameshafariki na nilishawahi kwenda mpaka kwa baba yangu Juma Temeke nikiwa na bibi yangu, lakini aliponiona tu akanifukuza akasema hataki kuniona tena “.
          NIKKI MBISHI AKANA KUMDISS LOVENESS LOVE   



Rapper anayeheshimika kwa uandishi mkali wa mashairi na mchawi wa freestyle Tanzania, Nikki Mbishi, amekanusha kumdiss mtangazaji wa kipindi cha Ala za Roho cha Clouds FM, Loveness Diva, katika wimbo wake uitwao ‘Feedback’ uliopo kwenye albam yake, Jogoo.

Mstari huo unasema, “Hauwezi kuiva mpaka uwe unamskiliza Loveness Love,Kicheche unajiita diva hiyo ni nonsense kavu.”


Hata hivyo akiongea na 255 ya Clouds FM jana, rapper huyo amesema mlengwa wa mstari huo sio mtangazaji huyo bali ni ex wake aliyemzingua.

“Huo mstari nilimchanaga mtu mmoja ambaye niliwahi kuwa na uhusiano naye akanizingua, halafu sehemu aliyokuwa anatumia kijifunza mapenzi ni kile kipindi cha Loveness Love, ndo maana nikamuuliza huwezi kuiva kimapenzi mpaka uwe unamsikiliza Diva?

Umeona, kwahiyo yeye sasa mwisho wa siku ikafika hatua hadi anajiita diva, nikamwambia wewe ni kicheche unajiita diva?

Halafu hiyo ni nonsense kavu yaani, sababu haina maana wala misingi yoyote katika uhusiano wangu mimi na wewe, ndo maana ya huo mstari, lakini haikuwa direct kwamba namchana Love sijui ni nini,hapana yeye hahusiki na wala hajui nini maana ya huo mstari yaani," alisema Nikki Mbishi.

          Demokrasia ya Tanzania yapigiwa mfano duniani   
IMEBAINISHWA kuwa demokrasia iliyopo Tanzania ni moja wapo ya chachu inayowafanya watu wengi zikiwemo nchi zilizoendelea duniani kutamani kuwa nayo, lakini inashindikana kutokana na mifumo yao ya kiutawala.

Mbali na hayo Watanzania wamehimizwa kuendelea kuilinda, kuheshimu na kuitumia vyema demokrasia hiyo katika kujadili ikiwemo kuibua mambo ambayo hayana uchochezi ili kuharakisha maendeleo yao.

Changamoto hiyo ilitolewa juzi na Waziri Mkuu mstaafu wa Rwanda Bw. Faustine Twagiramungu ambaye kwa sasa anaishi mjini Brussels nchini Ubeligiji wakati akichangia mada kwenye kipindi cha Straight Talk Afrika ambacho huwa kinarushwa na Sauti ya Amerika (VOA) kutoka mjini Washington DC nchini Marekani.

Hata hivyo sababu kuu iliyomsukuma Waziri huyo mstaafu kutamka hivyo ni kutokana na mada ambayo iliwasilishwa katika kipindi hicho ambayo iliangazia tija ambayo inaweza kupatikana kwa Bara la Afrika baada ya Wafaransa kufanya uamuzi wa kidemokrasia na kumuingiza madarakani Bw. Francois Hollande.

"Huwezi kumpima mtu kwa matendo yake ila uamuzi na siasa safi hususan demokrasia zenye mantiki kwa Afrika ndizo kimbilio na ufunguo wa maendeleo kwa Afrika;

"Nikiwa huku nilipo (Ubeligiji) nchi ambazo ninaweza kujivunia kuwa na demokrasia ya kweli si kwetu Rwanda... ni Tanzania na ninaamini iwapo wataitukuza (Watanzania) demokrasia hiyo ni fundisho pekee na mfano wa kuigwa katika Bara la Afrika na hata nje ya bara letu," alisema Bw. Twagiramungu.

Hata hivyo baadhi ya wachangiaji wa mada hiyo kutoka sehemu mbalimbali duniani walisema kuwa, nchi za Afrika ikiwemo Tanzania haziwezi kutegemea wahisani kuziendesha ila umefika wakati sasa rasilimali zinazowazunguka kutumika vyema kwa manufaa ya Waafrika.

"Kuchaguliwa kwa Rais mpya nchini Ufarasa kwetu (Afrika) si tija, haijalishi sera zake zinajikita katika Ujamaa au la!...tutakachofanya ni kuendelea kudumisha umoja na ushirikiano, lakini masuala ya uwajibikaji kwa manufaa ya nchi zetu yanatuhusu wenyewe," alisema mmoja wa wachangiaji wa mada hiyo kutoka nchini Nigeria.

Hata hivyo tafiti zinaonesha kuwa mbali na changamoto za hapa na pale demokrasia iliyopo Tanzania imekuwa mfano wa kuigwa kutokana na Watanzania wenyewe kuwa na maamuzi yao pekee bila kulazimishwa na watu ya kuwachagua ikiwemo kuwakataa viongozi ambao wanaona hawawajibiki ipasavyo.

          Aid to the Church in Need gives thanks for record year of donations   

The funds helped finance 5,303 projects in 148 countries.

By Jürgen Liminski 

NEW YORK--In 2016, international Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) has once again raised a record total in donations. Last year, ACN brought in close to $148M, topping the 2015 total by $5.7M. This was the highest total ever raised in a year. The funds helped finance 5,303 projects in 148 countries.

More than a quarter of the grants were awarded for projects in located in Africa, where the Church is growing very fast. The continent accounts for more than a third of all grant applications.

Countries located in the Saharan zone receive particular attention, as do northern Nigeria, Kenya and Tanzania, all of which are countries where an aggressive form of Islam has been spreading.

Just behind funding for Africa came emergency and subsistence aid for Church communities in the Middle East, the cradle of Christianity. This support is vital for ensuring the survival of Christianity in the region. In the Middle East, Iraq and Syria received the most aid in 2016. This is of course due to the volatile political situation in these two nations.

More than $66M flowed into the crisis areas in the Middle East since 2011. This aid is expected to continue to grow exponentially in 2017 as ACN has launched a multi-million campaign to help displaced Christians return to their homes in areas newly liberated from the grip of ISIS.

As in the preceding years, the majority of the total aid was earmarked for rebuilding projects, which accounted for 30 percent of all spending; next came emergency aid for the Middle East and subsistence aid for women religious, as well as support for pastoral formation: some 30,000 catechists and pastoral agents around the world were among recipients of support.

In Central and Eastern Europe especially, the focus of the aid is shifting from building projects to training and continued education. The Balkan countries have moved to the center of attention in this part of the world, because radical forms of Islam are making itself felt there as well. Construction and repair of 1,200 chapels, churches, cathedrals and seminaries all over the world were financed in part by ACN, mostly in regions hard hit by natural disasters. One third of the building projects were in Africa.

Every ninth priest (or 43,015 in total) received help in the form of Mass stipends, especially in Africa (14,403) and Asia (11,293). That meant that every 22 seconds Mass was elebrated somewhere in the world for the intentions  of ACN donors. Aid was approved for 10,760 seminarians, a number equivalent to every eleventh seminarian worldwide. Most of them were preparing for the priesthood in Africa (4,667), Latin America (2,900) and Eastern Europe (1,577).

Training and/or subsistence aid was granted to 11,080 women religious, or every 62nd sister worldwide. In 2015, only every 67th sister received aid. In most cases, the help was in the form of subsistence aid for members of contemplative orders for women. Further funding was granted for to purchase 375 cars, 149 motorcycles and 239 bicycles as well as two boats.

ACN conducts fundraising through a network of national offices in 23 countries.

          LOWASSA : GURUDUMU LA MAENDELEO LIKIANZA KULIZUIA NI TAABU SANA   

Waziri  Mkuu wa zamani, Edward Lowassa, amesema gurudumu la demokrasia limekwisha kuanza nchini hivyo ni vigumu  kulizuia.

Lowassa ambaye pia ni mjumbe wa Kamati Kuu ya Chadema,  alirejea  Makao Makuu ya Polisi Dar es Salaam jana baada Juni 27 kuhojiwa na Ofisi ya Mkurugenzi wa Upelelezi wa Makosa ya Jinai (DCI).

Alihojiwa  kwa takriban saa nne juu ya kauli alizozitoa kuhusu viongozi wa dini wa kundi la Uamsho na akatakiwa kurudi  jana saa 6.00 mchana.

Akizungumza ofisini kwake Mikocheni, Lowassa alisema baada ya kuitikia wito wa polisi jana, hakuna mengi aliyoambiwa zaidi ya kuelezwa kuwa  upelelezi wa suala hilo unaendelea hivyo arejee  ofisini hapo Julai 13.

Alipoulizwa analichukuliaje suala hilo la kutakiwa kwenda  polisi mara kwa mara  alisema: “Njoo kesho, njoo kesho kutwa ni sehemu ya kazi yao (polisi).

“Kuhusu maoni yangu nitawaambia baada ya kumaliza hili, isionekana naingilia.

“Lakini nieleze jambo moja, demokrasia ikishaanza kuizuia ni taabu sana.

“Unaweza ukapunguza spidi ya gurudumu la demokrasia lakini huwezi kuiondoa, demokrsia imeshaanza, inaendelea, ni vigumu kuizuia.

“La pili, nichukue nafasi hii kuwaomba wanachama wa chama chetu na wananchi na wanaotutakia mema wasiwe na  shaka kila kitu kipo chini ya utaratibu mzuri.

“Tuko sawasawa, tuko sahihi na tunatekeleza kama alivyosema (Mwenyekiti Chadema, Freeman Mbowe). Tunatekeleza sera ya chama chetu, wasiogope wawe na amani, watulie,” alisema Lowassa.

Alivyoulizwa kama wakati anatoa kauli kuhusu viongozi hao wa Uamsho labda aliteleza, Lowassa alisema, “I stand by what I said” (naisimamia kauli yangu).

Alisema anaamini alichosema ni sahihi kama alivyoeleza Mbowe na kwamba suala la msingi ni kuachiwa kwa Masheikh wa Uamsho.

Lowassa alisema Chadema  kama chama hakisemi kama viongozi hao wa dini wana makosa ama hawana, ila wamekaa ndani kwa muda mrefu bila kesi zao kusikilizwa.

“Wamekaa vya kutosha, hilo ndilo la msingi tunaloomba… katika hotuba yangu nilisema na kwenye magazeti waliandika vizuri, wale walioko madarakani wana mamlaka.

“Mtu mwenye dhamana ya kuwatoa ni Rais. Nikawaeleza wajipange wakaongee na Rais wamwambie ‘mzee, wenzetu tunaomba waachiliwe’.

“Mwenye madaraka ya mwisho ni Rais, mkiendelea na mahakama miaka minne, nane siyo… kwa hiyo narudia, ni vema wakamuombe Rais awaachilie.

“Sintoshangaa akitekeleza (akawaachia) kwa sababu juzi ametekeleza moja ya uamuzi wetu wa kuunda tume ya kuchunguza madini, tulivyokuwa Kahama tulisema tutaunda tume.

“Waendelee na uchunguzi wao (juu ya kauli yake), lakini narudia, gurudumu la demokrasia likianza kulizuia ni  taabu sana.

“Narudia mwenye mamlaka ya mwisho kuombwa na kushawishiwa ni Rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania,”alisema Lowassa.

          MISWADA YA MADINI YATUA BUNGENI DODOMA   
Ikiwa ni siku kadhaa zimepita baada ya Rais John Magufuli kulitaka Bunge lipitie upya sheria na mikataba ya madini, miswada mitatu inayohusu madini tayari imesomwa bungeni kwa mara ya kwanza jana.

Aidha, ili kutoa fursa ya wabunge kujadili miswada hiyo iliyowasilishwa bungeni kwa hati ya dharura, vikao vya Bunge la Bajeti vilivyokuwa vifikie tamati leo, vimesogezwa hadi Julai 5 mwaka huu ili kutoa fursa kwa wabunge kupitia miswada hiyo. 

Miswada iliyosomwa kwa mara ya kwanza bungeni hapo ni Muswada wa Sheria ya Mapitio na Majadiliano kuhusu Masharti Hasi katika Mikataba ya Maliasili za Nchi wa Mwaka 2017.

Muswada huu unapendekeza kuweka utaratibu ambapo wananchi kupitia chombo chao cha uwakilishi ambacho ni Bunge, kitapitia na kujadili makubaliano na mikataba yote inayohusu rasilimali za nchi, ambayo imefungamana na Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania kwa lengo la kujiridhisha na masharti. Muswada mwingine ni Muswada wa Sheria ya Mamlaka ya nchi Kuhusu Umiliki wa Maliasili wa mwaka 2017.

Muswada huu unakusudia kuweka masharti yatakayohakikisha kwamba hatua yoyote inayochukuliwa kuhusu uwekezaji wa rasilimali za taifa, inatambua na kuzingatia haki ya Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania kama taifa huru lenye mamlaka ya kusimamia na kutumia rasilimali zake kwa maslahi ya taifa. Muswada mwingine ni Muswada wa Sheria ya Marekebisho ya Sheria Mbalimbali wa mwaka 2017.

Wakati anapokea ripoti ya pili ya Kamati Maalumu ya Uchumi na Sheria kuhusu Taarifa ya Makinikia, Rais Magufuli aliliomba Bunge kupitia upya sheria na mikataba yote ya madini na gesi ili kuiepusha nchi kuingia katika mikataba mibovu.

“Kamati ya uongozi ilikaa jana (juzi) kubadilisha ratiba ambapo sasa mkutano huo wa Bunge la bajeti utaahirishwa Julai 5 mwaka huu, badala ya Juni 30 kama ilivyokuwa imepangwa awali, miswada mitatu mipya ya sheria iliyosomwa kwa mara ya kwanza, itapelekwa katika kamati za Bunge,” alisema Spika Job Ndugai, ili kutoa nafasi kwa wabunge kujadili miswada hiyo,.

 Bunge limebadili ratiba kwa Bunge kuendelea na shughuli zake hadi Julai 5 mwaka huu, ambapo bunge hilo litaahirishwa.

Alisema Muswada wa Sheria ya Marekebisho ya Sheria mbalimbali wa mwaka 2017 kwa kuangalia upungufu uliojitokeza itafanyiwa kazi na Kamati ya Kudumu ya Katiba na Sheria inayoongozwa na Mohammed Mchengerwa.

Ndugai alisema pia Bunge limeunda kamati maalumu itakayoundwa na wajumbe wa kamati nne za Nishati na Madini, Kamati ya Ardhi, Kamati ya sheria Ndogondogo na Kamati ya Katiba na Sheria, itakayoongozwa na Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya Nishati na Madini, Dotto Biseko ambayo itapitia miswada miwili ya Sheria ya Mapitio na Majadiliano kuhusu Masharti Hasi katika Mikataba ya Maliasili za Nchi wa mwaka 2017.

Pia kamati hiyo itafanyia kazi Muswada wa Sheria ya Mamalaka ya nchi kuhusu Umiliki wa Maliasili wa mwaka 2017. 

“Kamati hizo zitafanya kazi kuanzia leo (jana) kwa kukutana na wadau mbalimbali na kisha taarifa itawasilishwa bungeni Jumanne, kabla ya bunge kuahirishwa Jumatano (Julai 5 mwaka huu),” 

Baada ya kuwasilishwa kwa miswada hiyo, Mbunge wa Kibamba, John Mnyika aliomba mwongozo wa Spika, ambapo aliliomba bunge kuondoa hati ya dharura ya kujadili miswada hiyo.

“Muda mfupi uliopita tumekabidhiwa ratiba ya bunge, serikali inaleta miswada mitatu kwa hati ya dharura, mwaka 1997 mikataba ya madini ilipitishwa haraka haraka, mikataba ya ngesi hivyo hivyo,

 “Kazi ya bunge ni kutunga sheria, sisi ndio wawakilishi wa wananchi, kwa umuhimu wake na maslahi kwa wananchi, sisi wawakilishi tulitakiwa kukutana na wananchi, hivyo ni bora ikasomwa leo kwa mara ya kwanza na hati ya dharura ikaondolewa na kuletwa bunge lijalo.

 “Kwa maelezo uliyotoa wadau wataitwa kwa short notice wafike Dodoma kujadili, sisi wabunge vile vile, miswada mitatu inaletwa tuichambue. Huu ni mtego kwa kutufanya tushindwe kuishauri serikali kwa kazi yetu ya kibunge”. 

Akitoa majibu ya serikali kuhusu muongozo huo, Waziri wa Nchi, Ofisi ya Waziri Mkuu, Sera, Bunge, Kazi, Ajira, Vijana na Watu wenye Ulamavu, Jenista Mhagama alisema masharti ya kutunga sheria na masharti ya jumla, yamewekwa katika fasihi ya nane ya Kanuni za Bunge, masharti yameongezwa na kanuni ya 80 na kanuni nyingine.

“ Muswada ambayo imeletwa imekuja kwa hati ya dharura, ili bunge liridhie kama miswada hii inastahili kujadiliwa na bunge ama la, kanuni 80(4) inasema muswada wowote wa dharura hautaingizwa katika shughuli za Bunge bila kuwa na hati iliyowekwa sahihi na rais kuthibitisha kwamba muswada huo ni wa dharura. 

“Sisi kama serikali tumeshatimiza masharti yote, tumeshakamilisha hatua zote za kufikishwa muswada huo kwa hati ya dharura. Wanaoweza kulishauri Bunge baada ya kuona uzito wa kazi iliyolewa na serikali ni kamati husika itakayopewa kazi ya kujadili miswada hiyo,” alisema.

Alisema sio busara kwa wabunge kabla hawajaona yaliyomo katika miswada husika, kujenga hoja ya kuikataa ndani ya bunge, mana kinachofanyika ni kwa maslahi mapata ya taifa. 

Akijibu mwongozo huo, Spika Job Ndugai alisema kwa niaba ya wabunge alipokea hati ya dharura huku akiwataka wabunge kulifanyia kazi jambo hilo.

“Tulijadiliana na kamati ya uongozi yenye uwakilishi wa tukakubaliana suala hili lisonge mbele. Wakati Rais (Magufuli) akipokea ripoti ya pili ya mainikia, kwa niaba yenu nilikubali kama kuna mambo yenye maslahi kwa nchi tutayafanyia kazi, mambo yameletwa katika kamati husika, kamati itajadili kama muswada inastahili kuingia bungeni ama la hoja nitatokea huko.

Aliongeza, “kwa muda mrefu tulikuwa tunataka Bunge kuwa na nafasi fulani katika masuala yanayohusu maadini na gesi, liwe na nafasi fulani ili kuzuia nchi kuingia katika mikataba mibovu.

 “Miswada hii kama mtanzania yeyote mwenye kuhitaji ataipata katika tovuti,”alisema Ndugai.

          HAYA NDIYO MASHTAKA 28 YANAYOMKABILI RAIS WA TFF JAMAL MALINZI   

Rais wa Shirikisho la Soka Tanzania (TFF), Jamal Malinzi hataweza kutetea nafasi yake hiyo katika Uchaguzi Mkuu uliopangwa kufanyika Agosti 12 mjini Dodoma.


Hiyo inatokana na kushindwa kufika kwenye usaili ulioanza jana na kumalizika kesho kwa kuwa yupo rumande akikabiliwa na kesi.


Mbali ya Malinzi, pia Makamu wa Rais wa Simba, Geofrey Nyange ‘Kaburu’ aliyekuwa akiwania nafasi ya Makamu wa Rais TFF, pia amepoteza nafasi hiyo kwa kuwa naye yupo rumande.


Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya Uchaguzi TFF, Revocatus Kuuli alisema mgombea ambaye atakosa kufika kwenye usaili katika muda huo atakuwa amejiondoa kwenye uchaguzi.


Malinzi, ambaye aliingia madarakani mwaka 2013 alikuwa akitetea kiti chake ambacho kingemfanya kuwa madarakani kwa miaka mingine minne iwapo angechaguliwa.


Jana, Malinzi (57), Katibu Mkuu wake, Mwesigwa Celestine (46) na Mhasibu, Nsiande Mwanga (27) walipandishwa kizimbani katika Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Kisutu wakikabiliwa na mashtaka mbalimbali ikiwamo ya kughushi na kutakatisha fedha dola za Marekani 375,418 (Sh840 milioni).


Malinzi anashtakiwa kwa makosa 28, huku wenzake wakishtakiwa kwa makosa yasiyozidi manne.


Walisomewa mashtaka hayo na Wakili wa Serikali, Nassoro Katuga ambaye alidai kuwa katika shtaka la kwanza, Malinzi na Mwesigwa, Juni 5, 2016 wakiwa Dar es Salaam kwa nia ya kudanganya, walighushi nyaraka zinazoitwa Maazimio ya Kamati ya Utendaji (Executive Committee Resolution) wakionyesha Kamati ya Utendaji ya TFF imebadili mtia saini wa akaunti ya benki ya TFF, Edgar Leonard Masoud kuwa Nsiande Isawafo Mwanga wakati wakijua si kweli.


Katika shtaka la pili, Wakili Katuga alidai kuwa Septemba Mosi, 2016 katika benki ya Stanbic, tawi la Kinondoni, Mwesigwa aliwasilisha nyaraka hiyo ya kughushi.

Katika shtaka la 27, Swai alidai kuwa Malinzi na Mwesigwa katika kipindi hicho cha Septemba Mosi na Oktoba 19, 2016 katika benki ya Stanbic, tawi la kati la Kinondoni walijipatia dola 375,418 wakati wakijua fedha hizo zimetokana na kughushi.


Katika shtaka la 28, Mwanga anadaiwa kuwa kati ya Septemba Mosi na Oktoba 19, 2016 katika ofisi ya TFF aliwasaidia Malinzi na Mwesigwa kujipatia dola 375,418 kutoka benki ya Stanbic huku akijua upatikanaji wake umetokana na kughushi.


Baada ya washtakiwa hao kusomewa mashtaka hayo yanayowakabili Wakili wa Serikali Mwandamizi, Kishenyi Mutalemwa aliiambia Mahakama kuwa upelelezi bado haujakamilika.


Jopo la mawakili wa utetezi likiongozwa na Jerome Msemwa na Aloyce Komba liliiomba Mahakama iwapatie dhamana washtakiwa hao lakini Mutalemwa na mawakili wenzake wa Serikali waandamizi, Christopher Msigwa na Pius Hilla walipinga dhamana kwa washtakiwa hao kwa madai kuwa mashtaka ya kutakatisha fedha yanayowakabili hayana dhamana.


Hakimu Wilbard Mashauri anayesikiliza kesi hiyo, aliiahirisha hadi Jumatatu ijayo atakapotoa uamuzi kama washtakiwa hao watapata dhamana hivyo, walipelekwa rumande.

          WAFANYAKAZI WA MOHAMMED ENTERPRISES ( MeTL Group) WAJITOLEA DAMU   

Wafanyakazi wa kampuni ya Tanzania Match Industries Limited ambayo ni kampuni tanzu ya Mohammed Enterprises Tanzania Limited (MeTL Group) wamejitoa kusaidia maisha ya mamia ya Watanzania kwa kujitolea damu ambazo zitatumika katika hospitali mbalimbali nchini.

Katika tukio hilo la kujitolea damu ambalo lilifanyika kwenye ofisi za kampuni hiyo, wafanyakazi 40 walijitolea damu zao ambazo zitapelekwa kusaidia wagonjwa katika hospitalini zenye uhitaji mkubwa wa damu.

Akizungumzia umuhimu wa kutoa damu, Meneja Msaidizi wa Hospitali ya Sanitas, Dr. Sajjad Fazel alisema utoaji wa damu huo ni muhimu kwa kusaidia maisha ya watu wengine kwani hata chupa moja ya damu ina muhimu mkubwa na inaweza kusaidia kuoa maisha ya watu watatu.

“Kuna uhaba wa damu, kwa kila Mtanzania ahakikishe kuwa anaonyesha uzalendo na upendo wako kwa Watanzania wenzake kwa kuchangia damu na kuokoa maisha yao,” alisema Dk. Fazel.

          Pipo Short Film Wins Viewer's Choice Award in Jamaica   

Wazzup Pilipinas!


A short film about a boy who wants to have his family picture taken by an old and grumpy photographer for his school assignment won the viewer's choice award during the Asian and Middle Eastern Film Night of the fifth Gatffest Film Festival in Kingston, Jamaica last June 24.

"Pipo," which stars Maliksi Morales in the title role, bested films from Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan, in the said category of the festival. Chanel Latorre, Ramon Palencia, and Katherine Carel provide support as members of Pipo's family while award-winning actor Lou Veloso plays the role of the photographer.

Director Richard Legaspi was among the filmmakers from 28 countries who showcased their works during the festival and also vied for awards in 14 other categories including best directing, most original screenplay and best international film. Other films which competed in the 10-day event came from Canada, Columbia, Germany, India, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Tanzania, United States and United Kingdom, among others.

Gatffest, initially introduced in 2013 as the Greater August Town Film Festival and hailed as "the Carribean's premier film festival," was organized by the University of the West Indies (UWI) Centre for Tourism and Policy Research.





UWI CTPR Director and Prof. Ian Boxill pointed out that although there has been an increase in the number of Jamaican-produced films, several filmmakers still find it difficult to show their films in movie theaters and traditional media. Thus, he stressed that Gatffest remains relevant not only to local filmmakers but also to those from other countries who similarly want an outlet for securing an audience and screening their works.

With the theme "From the Streets to the Screen," the film festival featured panel discussions, trainings and workshops in film and video production, and provided a venue for filmmakers to express themselves and to deal with issues in their respective communities.

Through the film, Legaspi raises concerns brought about by poverty and environment-related issues and also pays tribute to manual film cameras as well as all the photographers who people often fail to acknowledge for documenting precious moments in their lives.


"Pipo" previously won the grand prize in the professional section of AnakTV’s Sinebata (children’s films) competition, 8-12 fiction category (based on target audience). The film was produced by Red Room Media Productions through the support of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, ILLY, Università delle Idee and Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto.




Legaspi is a Gawad Cultural Center of the Philippines awardee in 2010 and 2011, a recipient of the Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature in 2012 for his screenplay "Primera Bella" and a Cinemalaya winner and Gawad Urian nominee for his short film "Manenaya." He is a graduate of Ricky Lee’s 14th scriptwriting workshop, a directing fellow at the Asian Film Academy in Busan, South Korea, and a UNESCO Laureate and resident artist of UNIDEE.

review:
When the opportunity came for me to read BEAUTIFUL MERCY, billed on the front cover as “the perfect companion to the Year of Mercy,” I was anything but excited.

My reading time has been cut in half because of other obligations, and I have a stack of books I really want to read.

What I’m saying is that I did a lot of sucking it up to pick this book up.

And God used it as a big ole two-by-four to hit me across the head.

This book might be some of the best writing and reading I’ve done on the subject of mercy. Ever.

Kelly writes, in the prelude,

“It’s simple, but imagine how the world would be different if everyone practiced just one work of mercy each day. How would the world be different if these works of mercy defined the way we live our lives? There is genius in Catholicism, but sadly it is little known and practiced.

[…]

“Sometimes the best way to think about life is to reflect upon death. When I think about my life and how I have offended God, all the opportunities I have had to love that I have turned my back on, how little I have done with the gifts he has given me, I hope he is merciful. When I reflect on my faults and failings, my mistakes and sins, my pride and arrogance, I hope he is merciful.

“I believe he is.”

What follows is a set of 14 chapters, one for each of the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. The collection of authors in this book is phenomenal: I’m sure Kelly didn’t actually call Pope Francis, but I can’t help but love that Pope Francis’ words are the introduction to the book:

“As we can see in Sacred Scripture, mercy is a key word that indicates God’s action towards us. He does not limit himself to merely affirming his love, but makes it visible and tangible. Love, after all, can never be just an abstraction. By its very nature, it indicates something concrete: intentions, attitudes, and behaviors that are shown in daily living. The mercy of God is his loving concern for each one of us. He feels responsible; that is, he desires our wellbeing and he wants to see us happy, full of joy, and peaceful. This is the path which the merciful love of Christians must also travel.”

Most of the chapters feature two essays, and they are practical suggestions. They are also, though, a challenge. They are reflective considerations of what the works of mercy, in both the corporal and spiritual aspects, mean for each of us as both individuals and as parts of the larger Body of Christ.

For example, consider Lisa Hendey’s reflection on giving drink to the thirsty: she took readers with her to Tanzania, painting a picture of the young girls carrying huge water jugs on their heads. She then zoomed back to her own California home, where a drought had made her more aware of water. Yet, she mentions, it’s more than just about water, isn’t it?

“But let us also remember that the “thirsty” often have needs that will be met more often by words and deeds than by water. I don’t have to travel halfway around the world to find folks who thirst. They are all around me, waiting for me to bear relief to them just as Neema bore that bucket of water.

“The thirsty are the working poor of my own community who labor in farm fields to put food on their tables. My elderly neighbor thirsts for someone to sit with her and to simply listen. A friend who single-parents a child with special needs thirsts for compassion, understanding, and welcome. And often, my own family thirsts for my care and attention when I let my daily busyness stand in the way of lovingly fulfilling my vocation as wife and mother.”

I was equally struck by Sarah Swafford’s reflection on instructing the ignorant. She explains that “ignorant” doesn’t mean “stupid,” but rather, “unlearned,” “unknown,” or even “unaware.” She makes a distinction that this isn’t about pushing our faith on other people, but instead trusting the Holy Spirit to guide us.

“In light of trying to dig deeper into this work of mercy, instruct the ignorant, I think it would be beneficial to distinguish between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is very important; we should have the facts and information we need to communicate the brilliant truths of our Catholic faith. But someone may have all the factual knowledge in the world⏤he or she may even be a “walking Catechism”—yet unless we approach this work of mercy with an eye to imparting wisdom, we may very well miss the mark.


“It is wisdom and faith that take knowledge and seamlessly weave it through the threads of time, history, culture, and personal experience in order to help answer life’s biggest questions: “Who am I?” “What am I living for?” and “Whom am I living for?” Wisdom and faith are the anchors of human life, giving us meaning and purpose even amid the attacks of relativism, utilitarianism, and the culture of death. Wisdom and faith show us that life has a plot, a goal, and living out this journey leads to happiness, peace, and joy—both in this life and in the next.”

This book is full of advice, true, but it’s also full of fire: I found myself considering that maybe my Year of Mercy wouldn’t be a total waste after all. Maybe even in the midst of how crazy my life is, I can make a few small changes that will have a big impact eternally.

In BEAUTIFUL MERCY, I found hope, and I also found an understanding of mercy I haven’t gained anywhere else. Mercy has always seemed to be a nice idea, a good theory, and completely foreign.

God has it, sure.

But…what does it mean? How do I share it? Why do I need it?

This collection was a gift to me, straight from heaven. It seared itself into my mind, and I can’t help but feel closer to God as a result of reading it.

I also can’t help but be better motivated to move forward through my Christian journey.

As Dr. Scott Hahn wrote in the conclusion:

“The crisis of the Church is not reducible to the lack of good catechists, liturgies, theologians, and so forth. It’s a crisis of saints. But it’s a crisis our Father can be trusted to handle, especially if we allow him to keep his promises to us.”

Let us be saints, indeed, and use what’s left of this Year of Mercy to run closer to that goal!

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.

          Comment on Shouting or cooperating? What’s the best way to use indexes to get better local government? by Finn   
Hi Duncan, Interesting post. In my experience, the questions of whether "to index or not to index" depends quite a bit on who the main user of the results is. You're right that PAPI and other league table indices work well, but probably since here the main user is the (quite empowered and centralized) local administration (i.e. top down). However, when the main user is rather the local community, comparisons to other communities via league tables might not matter as much as an inclusive process which lets local actors create - or at least, adapt the framework so that they full own it and its results (such as in the Tanzanian case). So, my - simplified - take would be: comparative indices/league tables to instigate top-down reforms, contextualized assessment processes to help with collective-action focused, bottom-up processes. Trying to achieve both at the same time seems to, in my experience, usually lead to failure, but I'd be very curious to hear about counter-examples to my hypothesis. As for assessments of local governance performance frameworks, TI did an overview of what exists on local governance assessments some years ago. It's here: http://gateway.transparency.org/guides/intro/local_governance

Peli Cases

Peli Protector Cases,produced by Pelican Cases in the USA have been thrown out of helicopters in Iraq, towed along frigid fjords in Norway, and rolled over by SUVs in Tanzania. With only a few scratches to show on the outside, contents are left unscathed. Minor war wounds for major bragging rights. And that is really what it's all about. Getting your gear from point A to B in the condition it's meant to be in: intact and functional.

Peli Cases have been tested by several government and private organizations and they have passed the most strict quality tests. They have successfully met many industrial, military and extreme sport requirements with respect to protection against knocks, immersion, humidity, corrosion, stacking and drop resistance.

Peli Protector cases are also "Permanent Packaging Solutions" that have less impact on the environment, while saving money and better protecting merchandise. This way Peli Products are providing their clients with more effective shipping solutions that make the traditional supply chain a little greener.

          Digital financial inclusion: what works and what’s next    


Over one billion women in the world do not have access to financial services. Having access to a transaction account is a first step for financial freedom and for women to take charge of their lives. 

Women are an underutilized resource in development. Not having access prevents women from having an equal footing in society. Financial inclusion can unleash enormous potential for economic development.

The World Bank’s World Development Report on gender estimated income losses due to women being excluded from the world of work at 10%-37% of GDP across all regions. Research by the World Bank Group, the IMF, the OECD, and private sector studies show that billions can be added to global GDP by advancing women's equality. 

Digital technologies are extending access to finance to millions of people, including women. This is incredibly exciting and the world is placing high stakes on digital technologies as a principal way to bring the 2 billion unbanked adults into the formal and regulated financial system.

It’s much easier today to save, make payments, access credit, and obtain insurance, all of which helps people manage day-to-day expenses, make long-term plans and handle unexpected emergencies.

In 2016, the G20 issued a report led by the World Bank Group and the People’s Bank of China – the High Level Principles for Digital Financial Inclusion - which provided eight recommendations for countries to encourage financial inclusion through digital technologies. A few weeks ago, the G20 finance ministers endorsed a follow-up report which profiles what countries have done in line with these recommendations.

Countries are taking different approaches. For example, Brazil, Mexico and Turkey have been digitizing government-to-person payments (salaries, welfare, etc.), while India has invested heavily in building critical digital infrastructure, including creating national digital IDs.

To mitigate the risk of expanded digital access, Ghana, for example, is piloting new ways for insurance providers to include mobile phones.

Likewise, countries are adjusting their legal and regulatory frameworks while ensuring a fair and just level-playing field. They are also increasingly employing tiered-regulation and customer-due-diligence approaches to promote financial inclusion, while conforming to anti-money laundering/combatting-terrorism financing requirements.  China, Mexico and Tanzania are such examples.

The speed and breadth of innovation in digital financial technologies is fascinating. But these new possibilities create new expectations.

Essentially, countries must be nimble and be able to adapt quickly to keep up with this rapid pace of change to leverage technology for the greater good.  

Governments must lead the way. They must create space and give the industry a green light to innovate.  They also need to coordinate across relevant agencies, including social welfare agencies that interact with people not in the formal financial system.

At the same time, regulators need to acquire better digital tools and look for new ways to foster fintech innovation, from pilot programs to greater collaboration with the industry.  Also, big data requires more sophisticated and automated systems that can provide real-time monitoring and analysis of financial activities.

Governments also must promote interoperable open technology systems that work with one another so that everyone can participate in the financial digital technology regardless of what particular phone or service they use.

Most importantly, governments must prioritize the creation of national digital IDs, while addressing legitimate privacy and data security concerns.

The World Bank Group already works with national authorities to help them develop the regulatory framework which addresses opportunities and risks created by fintech  in line with global standard-setting guidelines on payments and financial inclusion.

Developing countries profiled in this report are among the 25 countries where over 70% of the unbanked people live. They have been identified as priority countries in the World Bank Group’s Universal Financial Access 2020 initiative, whose goal is to provide financial access to adults currently left out of the formal financial system. If these countries make great strides toward digital financial inclusion, the world will be so much closer to reaching this goal.

          MRADI WA UMEME STIEGLER’S GORGE HAUTAATHIRI MAZINGIRA YA PORI LA SELOUS   
Na Mwandishi wetu, Katavi

Wizara ya Maliasili na utalii imewataka wadau wa uhifadhi kote nchini kuunga mkono mpango wa Serikali wa kujenga mradi mkubwa wa uzalishaji wa umeme katika mto Rufiji kwenye pori la akiba la Selous ambao ukikamilika unatarajiwa kuzalisha zaidi ya megawati 2,100.

Katibu Mkuu wizara ya Maliasili na utalii Meja Jenerali Gaudance Milanzi amesema utekelezaji wa mradi huo wa umeme ni wa muhimu kwa taifa kwani utasaidia kuharakisha maendeleo ya taifa kuelekea azima yake ya Tanzania ya viwanda na uchumi wa kati.

Akiongea wakati akifunga mafunzo ya askari wa wanyamapaori kutoka Mamlaka ya wanayamapori Tanzania -TAWA na Mamlaka ya Hifadhi ya Ngorongoro, Katibu mkuu Meja Jenerali Gudance Milanzi amesema mradi huo wa umeme pamoja na mradi wa bwawa la maji la Kidunda utachukua eneo dogo tu la pori la akiba la Selou lenye ukubwa wa zaidi ya kilomita za mraba elfu 50.

Amesema pori hilo ndilo kubwa miongoni mwa mapori ya aina hiyo ulimwenguni na ukubwa wake ni zaidi ya nchi za Rwanda na Burundi zikiunganishwa kwa pamoja.

Katibu Mkuu amesema ujenzi wa miradi hiyo hauna tafsiri kwamba Tanzania haithamini masuala ya uhifadhi bali unazingatia uhifadhi wenye manufaa kwa jamii na maendeleo ya taifa na hasa dhamira ya serikali ya rais Dk John Pombe Magufuli kuelekea Tanzania ya viwanda ambayo inahitaji nishati ya umeme itakayoyotosheleza mahitaji ya taifa.

          UWT YAPULIZA KIPYENGA CHA KUCHUKUA FOMU KUOMBA UONGOZI, YAMUUNGA MKONO JPM KUHUSU MIMBA SHULENI    
NA BASHIR NKOROMO, DAR.

Katibu Mkuu wa Jumuiya ya Wanawake Tanzania (UWT) Amina Makilagi leo ametangaza rami tarehe ya Wanachama wa Jumuia hiyo kuanza kuchukua fomu kwa ajili ya kuomba ridhaa ya kugombea nafasi mbalimbali za uongozi tangu ngazi ya Kata hadi Taifa, na kusema fomu zinatolewa bure, huku akionya kuwa atakayejaribu kutumia rushwa kuomba nafasi yoyote atakatwa.

Pia ametumia ameaema UWT inaunga mkono tamko la Mwenyekiti wa CCM, Rais Dk. Magufuli alilolitoa hvi kribuni kwamba, ni marufuku kwa msichana atakayepata ujauzito akiwa shuleni katika mfumo rasmi kurudi masomoni katika mfumo huo rasmi.

Makilangi amesema, UWT inaunga mkono tamko hilo kwa sababu ndiyo maelekezo yaliyomo katika Ilaniya Uchaguzi ya CCM ya mwaka 2015-2020, na pia ndiyo Sera ya Serikali katika kusimamia utoaji elimu katika mfumo rasmi hapa nchini.

"Tafiti mbalimbali za Jumuia na Taasisi nyingine hapa nchini na za Kimataifa likiwemo Shirika la Kuhudumia Watoto la Umoja wa Mataida (UNICEF), Mwanafunzi mjamzito au aliyejifungua ni vigumu kuendelea na masomo katika mfumo ambao umeandaliwa kulingana na Saikolojia ya akili ya mtoto asiye na majukumu ya malezi na ndiyo maana upomfumo uliopendekezwa na sera na ilani ya CCM kwamba anayekatiza masomo katika mfumo rasmi anaweza kuendelea katika mfumo usio rasmi, Mifumo isyo rasmi kwa ajili ya wanafunzi wa aina hiyo na wengine waliokosa masomo katika mfumo wa kawaida ni  kama MEMKWA na QT" , alisema Makilagi.

Alisema UWT inatambua na kuheshimu mapendekezo  ya tafiti hizo kuhusu watoto na pia inakubaliana na sera ya Serikali na Ilani ya CCM kuweka utaratibu bora na wenye manufaa  zaidi wa kuwazuia wajawazito na wazazi  kuendelea na masomo katika mfumo rasmi na badala yake kutengeneza mfumo mbadala wa kupata elimu kwa kuwa kufanya hivyo kumaimarisha nidhamu, na uwezo wa kitaaluma wa watoto.

          TANZANIA NA NORWAY KUSHIRIKIANA KATIKA MASUALA YA SIASA NA DIPLOMASIA   
 

Waziri wa Mambo ya Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, Mhe. Dkt. Augustine Mahiga ameeleza kuwa kusainiwa kwa Mkataba wa Makubaliano (MoU) kuhusu kushirikiana katika Mashauriano ya Kisiasa na Kidiplomasia kati ya Tanzania na Norway kumefungua sura mpya ya mahusiano kati ya nchi hizo mbili. 

Kauli hiyo ameitoa leo jijini Dar Es Salaam wakati anaongea na waandishi wa habari baada ya shughuli ya uwekaji saini wa makubaliano hayo aliyoifanya kwa pamoja na Waziri wa Mambo ya Nje wa Norway, Mhe. Borge Brende kukamilika.

Alisema kusainiwa kwa MoU hiyo kutazifanya nchi hizo kuwa na mahusiano ya karibu zaidi katika kubadilishana mawazo kuhusu masuala ya kisiasa na kidiplomasia ambayo kimsingi yalikuwepo tokea zamani lakini leo yamerasimishwa. 

Mhe. Mahiga amewambia wanahabari kuwa Tanzania na Norway zimekuwa zikishirikiana kiuchumi, kiteknolojia na kijamii kwa takribani miaka 55 sasa. Baadhi ya maeneo aliyoyataja ambayo nchi hizo zimekuwa zikishirikiana katika kipindi hicho ni pamoja na uzalishaji wa nishati ya umeme hususan vijijini, afya, elimu, kilimo na utunzaji wa misitu. 

Mhe. Mahiga aliendelea kueleza kuwa katika kikao chao, wamejadili maeneo mapya ya ushirikiano yakiwemo utunzaji wa mazingira na kusisitiza umuhimu wa kuimarisha uhusiano wa sekta binafsi za nchi hizo mbili kinyume na awali mahusiano zaidi yalikuwa baina ya Serikali mbili.

Waziri Mahiga ameishukuru Norway kwa jitihada zake ziliozasaidia uvumbuzi na uchimbaji wa gesi asilia nchini kupitia kampuni ya Statoil ambayo imewekeza nchini mtaji mkubwa kuliko mahali popote Afrika.

          Growing Trees and Growing Profit: Is Your Business a “Restoration Enterprise?”   

Growing Trees and Growing Profit: Is Your Business a “Restoration Enterprise?”

This piece is co-written by Eriks Brolis, the conservation business lead on The Nature Conservancy’s Global Lands Team.

As one of our most powerful natural climate solutions, forest and landscape restoration is among the cheapest and most effective ways to store carbon and curb climate change. What’s more, expanding restoration can create enticing investment opportunities in a “restoration economy.”

One hundred and fourteen governments have made commitments to restoration as part of their overall plans to tackle a changing climate, pledging to restore 162 million hectares (400 million acres), an area six times the size of the United Kingdom. But transforming land use at a large scale means that we cannot rely on public or philanthropic resources alone. To reach the $26 billion needed each year to meet countries’ pledges under the Paris Agreement, the private and commercial sectors need to be involved.

One barrier to attracting the needed funds has been lack of awareness of the investment opportunities. Investors ask, what are the business models? How can restoration generate a return on investment? What is the growth potential?

As we noted in a previous blog post, restoration can generate both income and capital gains. More and more enterprises are seeing the commercial potential in restoration-related sectors, including those whose main value proposition is linked to forest and landscape restoration. This may be a direct link—enterprises that plant trees, for example—or an indirect one, such as companies that offer technology or consulting services for restoration. A restoration enterprise can also include companies whose revenues are not directly linked to restoration, but whose customers are drawn to them because they channel their profits toward restoration.

What Does a Restoration Enterprise Look Like?

When envisioning a restoration enterprise, sustainable forestry companies, such as Better Globe Forestry, are typically the first that come to mind. The Kenyan company works with smallholder farmers to plant Melia volkensii trees, a native species known for its resilience to drought. Providing farmers with a range of resources to plant the trees on their lands—from seedlings and water supplies to training and microfinance—Better Globe intends to purchase the trees from farmers once they are mature, harvesting them and exporting them as high-quality timber. By establishing the trees on semi-arid lands – with more than a million planted to date – the company helps retain water and improve soil quality, transforming dusty farmlands into oases of grass and vegetation.

Restoration enterprises, however, come in many shapes and forms. Another example is Fresh Coast Capital, which exemplifies the potential of restoration companies to deliver financial, environmental and social returns. As a project developer, Fresh Coast partners with cities throughout the U.S. Midwest to restore and revitalize underserved urban communities through the transformative power of nature. By paying Fresh Coast to install large-scale green infrastructure such as native plants and trees, cities can naturally manage stormwater runoff while improving soil and air quality. These projects can save cities millions in built infrastructure costs while creating restoration jobs and improving property values, delivering triple-win scenarios for the company, the city and the environment.

Ecosia takes a more indirect approach to restoration. An online search engine that displays ads next to its search results, Ecosia earns revenue every time a user clicks on one of the ads. At least 80 percent of its profits are invested into tree-planting programs in Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Peru, Indonesia and Tanzania. While Ecosia’s business model does not directly benefit from trees, its customer value proposition is intimately linked to restoring degraded land. Its platform enables users to see how many trees have been planted based on individual online activity. With 9 million trees planted to date, Ecosia proves that business models that indirectly promote restoration can be effective at creating large-scale impact.

Na Mwandishi wetu, Katavi

Wizara ya Maliasili na utalii imewataka wadau wa uhifadhi kote nchini kuunga mkono mpango wa Serikali wa kujenga mradi mkubwa wa uzalishaji wa umeme katika mto Rufiji kwenye pori la akiba la Selous ambao ukikamilika unatarajiwa kuzalisha zaidi ya megawati 2,100.

Katibu Mkuu wizara ya Maliasili na utalii Meja Jenerali Gaudance Milanzi amesema utekelezaji wa mradi huo wa umeme ni wa muhimu kwa taifa kwani utasaidia kuharakisha maendeleo ya taifa kuelekea azima yake ya Tanzania ya viwanda na uchumi wa kati.

Akiongea wakati akifunga mafunzo ya askari wa wanyamapaori kutoka Mamlaka ya wanayamapori Tanzania -TAWA na Mamlaka ya Hifadhi ya Ngorongoro, Katibu mkuu Meja Jenerali Gudance Milanzi amesema mradi huo wa umeme pamoja na mradi wa bwawa la maji la Kidunda utachukua eneo dogo tu la pori la akiba la Selou lenye ukubwa wa zaidi ya kilomita za mraba elfu 50.

Amesema pori hilo ndilo kubwa miongoni mwa mapori ya aina hiyo ulimwenguni na ukubwa wake ni zaidi ya nchi za Rwanda na Burundi zikiunganishwa kwa pamoja.

Katibu Mkuu amesema ujenzi wa miradi hiyo hauna tafsiri kwamba Tanzania haithamini masuala ya uhifadhi bali unazingatia uhifadhi wenye manufaa kwa jamii na maendeleo ya taifa na hasa dhamira ya serikali ya rais Dk John Pombe Magufuli kuelekea Tanzania ya viwanda ambayo inahitaji nishati ya umeme itakayoyotosheleza mahitaji ya taifa.

Amesema Tanzania inatambua umuhimu wa uhifadhi ndiyo maana imetenga eneo la zaidi ya asilimia 28 ya eneo lote la nchi kavu Tanzania bara kwaajili ya uhifadhi wa aina mbalimbali ukiwemo wa wanayamapori na misitu ya vyanzo vya maji ambayo ni muhimu kwa shughuli za kijamii na kiuchumi, “ ni nchi chache sana duniani zenye eneo kubwa la uhifadhi kama Tanzania” alisisitiza katibu mkuu.

Katibu mkuu amewataka wafanyakazi wa wizara na watanzania kwa ujumla kutokuwa kikwazo kwa utekelezaji wa mradi huo na kwamba wadau wanaotaka kuisaidia Tanzania wasaidie kuhakikisha inatumia maliasili zake kupiga hatua ya kimaendeleo ikiwemo misaada ya teknolojia za kisasa na rafiki wa mazingira kusaidia kufikia malengo yake kimaendeleo.

“Mtakumbuka mh. Rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania, Dk John Pombe Magufuli hivi karibuni alipokuwa kwenye ziara ya kikazi mkoani Pwani amezungumzia kwa kirefu sana umuhimu wa miradi hiyo ukiwemo wa bwawa la Kidunda na wa umeme wa Stieglars Gorge, sasa sisi kama wahifadhi na kama watumishi lazima tumuunge mkono na tusiwe kikwazo katika dhamira hii njema” alisema Jenerali Milanzi’’.

Ametoa mfano wa nchi ya Qatar ambayo amesema ilikuwa na eneo la uhifadhi lililokuwa kwenye orodha ya maeneo ya urithi wa dunia kutokana na uwepo wa baadhi ya viumbe adimu lakini walipogundua mafuta, waliamua kujitoa kwenye urithi wa dunia ili wachimbe mafuta na kuinufaisha nchi hiyo na maendeleo ya wananchi wake.

Akizungumzia kuhusu tatizo la mifugo kwenye maeneo yaliyohifadhiwa, Katibu mkuu amewataka wahifadhi kuhakikisha wanakabiliana na changamoto hiyo na kusimamia sheria zilizotungwa na Bunge la Jamahuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania ambazo zinakataza mifugo kuingia hifadhini kinyume cha sheria.

Amesema ndiyo maana serikali inatumia fedha nyingi kugharamia mafunzo ya askari wa wanyamapori na wahifadhi ili kuwaongezea ujuzi na weledi wa kulinda maliasili za taifa kwa kuzingatia sheria zilizopo.

Katibu Mkuu Meja Jenerali Gaudance Milanzi amezungumzia pia umuhimu wa kuhakikisha mapori ya uhifadhi yanatumiwa kwa uhifadhi badala ya kutumika kwa mambo mengine ikiwemo kilimo cha bangi na maficho ya majambazi na majangili na amewataka wahifadhi na askari kushirikiana na vyombo vingene vya ulinzi na usalama kuwafichua wahalifu wanaojificha kwenye mapori hayo na kufanya ujangili na uhalifu mwingine.

Mapema katika taarifa yake kwa katibu mkuu, Kaimu Mkurugenzi wa Mamlaka ya Wanyamapori Tanzania -TAWA Martin Loibooki alieleza kuwa mafunzo hayo yamesaidia kuimarisha uhifadhi kwenye mapori mbalimbali ya akiba nchini na maeneo ya uhifadhi wa wanyamapori.

Aliwashukuru wadau mbalimbali wa uhifadhi wa ndani na nje ya nchi wanaofadhili mafunzo hayo na vitendea kazi juhudi ambazo amesema zimeanza kuzaa matunda ikiwemo kuongezeka kwa idadi ya tembo na wanyamapori wengine kwenye mapori mengi nchini.

Mfunzo hayo yaliyowashirikisha askari wa wanyamapori wapatao 98 kutoka Mamlaka ya wanayamapori Tanzania TAWA na Mamlaka ya Hifadhi ya Ngorongoro ni mwendelezo wa mafunzo yanayotolewa na Wizara ya Maliasili na utalii kwa askari wa wanyamapori na watumishi wengine wa wizara hiyo katika hatua za kuelekea mfumo wa jeshi usu.

          UWT YAPULIZA KIPYENGA CHA KUCHUKUA FOMU KUOMBA UONGOZI, YAMUUNGA MKONO JPM KUHUSU MIMBA SHULENI    
NA BASHIR NKOROMO, DAR.

Katibu Mkuu wa Jumuiya ya Wanawake Tanzania (UWT) Amina Makilagi leo ametangaza rami tarehe ya Wanachama wa Jumuia hiyo kuanza kuchukua fomu kwa ajili ya kuomba ridhaa ya kugombea nafasi mbalimbali za uongozi tangu ngazi ya Kata hadi Taifa, na kusema fomu zinatolewa bure, huku akionya kuwa atakayejaribu kutumia rushwa kuomba nafasi yoyote atakatwa.

Pia ametumia ameaema UWT inaunga mkono tamko la Mwenyekiti wa CCM, Rais Dk. Magufuli alilolitoa hvi kribuni kwamba, ni marufuku kwa msichana atakayepata ujauzito akiwa shuleni katika mfumo rasmi kurudi masomoni katika mfumo huo rasmi.

Makilangi amesema, UWT inaunga mkono tamko hilo kwa sababu ndiyo maelekezo yaliyomo katika Ilaniya Uchaguzi ya CCM ya mwaka 2015-2020, na pia ndiyo Sera ya Serikali katika kusimamia utoaji elimu katika mfumo rasmi hapa nchini.

"Tafiti mbalimbali za Jumuia na Taasisi nyingine hapa nchini na za Kimataifa likiwemo Shirika la Kuhudumia Watoto la Umoja wa Mataida (UNICEF), Mwanafunzi mjamzito au aliyejifungua ni vigumu kuendelea na masomo katika mfumo ambao umeandaliwa kulingana na Saikolojia ya akili ya mtoto asiye na majukumu ya malezi na ndiyo maana upomfumo uliopendekezwa na sera na ilani ya CCM kwamba anayekatiza masomo katika mfumo rasmi anaweza kuendelea katika mfumo usio rasmi, Mifumo isyo rasmi kwa ajili ya wanafunzi wa aina hiyo na wengine waliokosa masomo katika mfumo wa kawaida ni  kama MEMKWA na QT" , alisema Makilagi.

Alisema UWT inatambua na kuheshimu mapendekezo  ya tafiti hizo kuhusu watoto na pia inakubaliana na sera ya Serikali na Ilani ya CCM kuweka utaratibu bora na wenye manufaa  zaidi wa kuwazuia wajawazito na wazazi  kuendelea na masomo katika mfumo rasmi na badala yake kutengeneza mfumo mbadala wa kupata elimu kwa kuwa kufanya hivyo kumaimarisha nidhamu, na uwezo wa kitaaluma wa watoto.

"Pia UWT inawapongeza Wabunge kwa kupitisha sheria kali kwa wale watakaobainika kusababisha upatikanaji wamimba  kwa wanafunzi, kutetea na kufanikisha ndo za utotoni.  Sheria ya maraekebisho ya sheria mbalimbali namba 2 ya mwaka 2016 ilyofanyiwa marekebisho ya sheria ya elimu ya Sura 353 inaweka wazi dhamira ya Serikali ya kumlinda mtoto wa kike na kutoa onyo kali kwa wale wenye tabia za kuwarubuni na kuwasababishaia mimba zisizotarajiwa  na za utotoni",

"pamoja nakuunga mkono kauli ya Mheshimiwa Rais, pia UWT inawashauri na kuwaomba Wazazi , Walezi na Jamii kwa ujumla, kuwalinda watoto wa kike na kutoa elimu ya kutosha kuhusu masuala ya jinsia, athari za mimba za utotoni na athari za maambukizi ya magonjwa ya zinaa ukiwemo Ukimwi", alisema Makilagi.

UWT imetoa mwito kwa wasichana waliopo shuleni kujizatiti kwenye masomo na kujiepusha na vishawishi kwa kuwa dira ya Tanzania ni kuwa na Taifa lenye uwiano na fursa sawa baina ya wanaume na wanawake hivyo mwito ni kwamba wasichana wajitahidi zaidi ili kulifikia lengo la kuwa washiriki katika ujenzi wa Taifa.

          MKUU WA MKOA WA KILIMANJARO ANNA MGHWIRA ,ASHUHUDIA MAGARI 103 YAKIWA NA SHEHENA YA MAHINDI NJIA PANDA YA HIMO.   
Na Dixon Busagaga wa Globu ya Jamii ,Kanda ya Kaskazini.

ENEO la njia Panda linalounganisha barabara za Moshi/Arusha,Tanga/Dar es Salaam na ile ya Holili mpakani mwa nchi jirani ya Kenya linatajwa kama kituo kikuu cha Malori yanayosafirisha Nafaka kwenda nchi jirani ya Kenya.
Uchunguzi uliofanywa na Globu ya Jamii umebaini kuwepo kwa maeneo yasiyo rasmi ya kuegesha Malori hayo ,mengine yakiwa na Matela yake ,ambako shughuli za kupakua mahindi na kupakia katika Magari Madogo aina ya fuso zinazotoka nchi jirani ya Kenya hufanyika.
Maeneo mengine yanayotajwa kuwepo na Magulio  ya Mahindi ni katika sehemu za maegesho ya magari  zilizopo katika  vituo mbalimbali vya kuuza Mafuta ,pamoja na baadhi ya nyumba za wageni ambazo zimegeuzwa Maghala ya kuhifadhia Mahindi.
Magari zaidi ya 103 yanashikiiwa katika maeneo ya Njia Panda na Himo yakiwa yamebeba Shehena ya Mahindi tayari kusafirishwa huku baadhi ya madereva wakiyatelekeza Malori yao kwa siku ya tano sasa na kwenda kusiko julikana .
Hatua iliwasukuma Wafanyabiashara wa Mahindi pamoja na Madereva kufika ofisi za Mkuu wa mkoa kuwasilisha malalamiko yao juu ya kukamatwa kwa Malori hayo yakiwa Njia Panda badala ya mpakani kama alivyo agiza Waziri Mkuu,Kassim Majaliwa.
Wakizungumza nje ya jingo la ofisi ya Mkuu wa Mkoa,Wafanyabiashara hao ,Laurance Kanyota,Nuru Madai na Mariam Ramadhan walisema wameshangazwa na hatua ya jeshi la Polisi kushikilia magari yao yalikuwa na Mahindi yakisafirishwa kuelekea mikoa ya Arusha na Moshi.
“Magari yetu yapo pale Sheli Maount Meru,yalitokea Tunduma kwenda Arusha,yalipofika pale siku ya Jumamosi madereva walienda kula siku kuu ya Idd,jana (Juzi) asubuhi  Matandiboi wakapiga simu kwamba tumezungukwa na Polisi ,tukaenda pale tukaonana na OCD tukaliza kwanini mnatushikia magari ambayo yako Njia Panda yanayoenda Arusha au Moshi ,wakajibu tumetumwa kushika magari yote ya Mahindi.”alisema Mfanyabiashara Mariam.
Alisema alimuelewa Waziri Mkuu katika agizo lake kwamba magari yaliyopo mpakani ndio yashikiliwe  na si kama lilivyofanya jeshi la Polisi kukamata magari yaliyokuwa Njia Panda kuelekea Moshi na Arusha huku wakimuomba Waziri Mkuu kutoa ufafanuzi  kwa wasaidizi wake juu ya agizo lake.
Mfanyabiashara Kanyota alisema amekuwa akifanya biashara ya kusafirisha mazao kwa njia halali ikiwa ni pamoja na ulipaji wa kodi lakini anashangazwa na hatua ya kuzuiliwa kwa  Mahindi yake ambayo amekuwa akinunua na kuyauza katika viwanda vya kutengeneza unga kwa ajili ya Chakula.
“Tulikua tunaomba Mkuu wa mkoa ajue kwamba sisi ni wafanyabiashara tunaolipa kodi halali ya serikali atusaidie tufikishe mazao yetu sehemu yanapotakiwa kufika ,Mahindi yangu yanatoka Mbeya ,mkulima aiyeniletea mimi kama Dalali ametoka Tunduma.”alisema Kanyota.
Kauli ya Serikali ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro.
Kamati ya ulinzi na usalama mkoa wa Kilimanjaro imepigiria msumari katika Agizo la Waziri Mkuu, Kassim Majaliwa la kutaifisha Mahindi pamoja na gari litakalokutwa kuanzia June 26 mwka huu likiwa limebeba na kusafirisha Mahindi kwenda nje  ya nchi.
Mkuu wa mkoa wa Kilimajaro Anna Mghwira  ambaye pia ni Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa alisema jana ofisini kwake mbele ya waandishi wa habari kuwa magari 103 yaliyokamatwa Himo na Njia Panda yatahesabiwa kama sehemu ya uhujumu uchumi na kwamba yatataifishwa .
“Magari yaliyokamatwa kule Siha ,tayari tulikwisha amua kwamba yatapelekwa Nationa Milling(Ghala la chakula la taifa)  Arusha ,lakini haya ya Himo ,Waziri Mkuu Alisha agiza kwamba kuanzia tarehe 26 ,magari yote yatakayokamatwa ,Bidhaa pamoja na magari yenyewe yatahesabiwa kuwa ni sehemu ya uhujumu Uchumi ,kwa hiyo yatataifishwa.”alisema Mghwira.
Mghwira alisema baada ya mfululizo wa vikao vya kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro juu swala zima la uuzaji na usafirishaji wa chakula nje ya nchi,kamati imefanyia kazi tamko la Waziri Mkuu kutaka kujiridhisha vya kutosha juu ya hali ya chakula iliyopo Kilimanjaro na mikoa ya jirani.
“Uogozi wa mkoa wa Kilimanjaro unapenda kuwatangazia wananchi wote,hususani Wafanyabiashara wa Sukari na Nafaka za Mpunga,Mchele ,Mahindi na Unga wa Mahindi ya kuwa ni marufuku kwa mfanyabiashara yoyote au mwananchi yoyote kusafirisha bidhaa hizo kwenda nje ya nchi bila kibali cha serikali”alisema Mkuu huyo wa Mkoa .
Alisema kukiuka agizo hilo ni kuhujumu uchumi wa nchi  kama ilivyo ainishwa kwenye kifungu cha 3 cha jedwali la kwanza la sheria ya uhujumu Uchumi sura ya 200 ya sheria za Tanzania na pia ni kukiuka agizo la Waziri Mkuu,kupitia waraka wake alioutoa  Mei 30,2017,uliozuia utokaji  wa vyakula na sukari kwenda nchi jirani .
Alisema kwa kukiuka sheria hiyo kunaweza kusababisha upungufu wa chakula kwenye baadhi ya maeneo nchini na kusababisha Mamlaka ya Mapato hapa nchini (TRA)  kukosa takwimu muhimu wa bidhaa zinazosafirishwa nje
“Ofisi ya Mkuu wa mkoa wa Kilimanjaro imejiridhisha kuwa baadhi ya wafanyabiashara wamekuwa wakisafirisha sukari  na nafaka hizo nyakati za usiku na hiki ndicho kinaleteleza kukosa takwimu muhimu kwa kupitia njia ambazo si rasmi kwa kushirikiana na baadhi ya askari polisi ambao sio waaminifu.
Wakati wa baraza la Idd lilifanyika kitaifa katika msikiti wa Riadha mjini Moshi,Waziri Mkuu ,Kassim Majaliwa alitangaza kupiga marufuku usafirishaji wa Mahindi kwenda nchi jirani na kwamba atakaye kiuka utaratibu huo atahukuliwa hatua kali za kisheria.
Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Kilimanjaro Anna Mghwira akiwa ameongozana na baadhi ya wajumbe wa kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya mkoa wa Kilimanjaro wakiwemo Kamanda wa Polisi ,Hamis Issah na Mkuu wa wilaya ya Moshi ,Kippi Warioba wakitembelea maeneo ambayo yameshikiliwa magari yaliyobeba shehena ya Mahindi .

Afisa Mradi wa Elimu kutoka TENMET, Alistidia Kamugisha akifungua mkutano na kuwaelezea malengo ya mkutano huo wa siku mbili kwa wadau wa elimu na Chama cha Walimu Tanzania uliofanyika katika ukumbi wa Hoteli ya Blue Pearl jijini Dar es Salaam.
 Mratibu wa Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania (TENMET), Cathleen Sekwao akitoa mada kuhusu umuhimu wa ukusanyaji wa rasilimali za ndani na kuwekeza katika kuboresha sekta ya elimu hususani kwa mtoto wa kike na maslahi ya walimu katika mkutano uliowakutanisha wanachama wa chama cha walimu Tanzania (CWT/TTU).
Meneja Mradi wa Elimu kutoka shirika la ActionAid Tanzania Ndugu Karoli Kadeghe akiwasilisha changamoto zinazoikabili elimu msingi hapa nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na upungufu wa vyumba vya madarasa, upungufu wa walimu kwenye mkutano uliowakutanisha wadau wa elimu pamoja baadhi ya viongozi wa Chama cha Walimu ngazi ya mikoa ya Tanzania Bara  iliyofanyika jijini  Dar es Salaam. 
  Baadhi ya wadau wa elimu nchini Tanzania wakichangia mada kwenye mkutano uliowakutanisha ili kujadili kodi na ubora wa elimu hapa nchini Tanzania  kwenye mkutano uliofanyika jijini Dar 

Shirika la ActionAid-Tanzania, Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania, Shirika la Maendeleo ya Elimu Singida-MEDO na Mtandao wa Asasi za Kiraia-KINGONET  kwa pamoja wanatekeleza mradi wa uhamasishaji utoaji elimu bora kupitia rasilmali zetu wenyewe ( PROMOTING QUALITY EDUCATION THROUGH PROGRESSIVE DOMESTIC RESOURCE MOBILIZATION) unaotekelezwa huko Kilwa na Singida Vijijini kwa ngazi ya wilaya kwa kufanya kazi na kamati za shule na klabu za haki za watoto shuleni. Kitaifa MRADI Huo unalenga kufanya  utetezi wa mabadiliko ya kisera na sheria  hasa suala la ulipaji kodi, ukusanyaji kodi kwa haki (tax Justice), uzibaji wa mianya ya uvujaji wa kodi  ili makusanyo yaongezeke na yagharimie huduma bora kwa wananchi wa Tanzania hususani kuboresha utoaji wa Elimu bora Nchini.

Mratibu wa Mtandao wa Elimu Tanzania Bi. Cathleen Sekwao akifungua mkutano huo aligusia pia kuhusu “utoaji wa huduma za jamii hapa nchini unakabiliwa na ufinyu wa fedha, wote tu mashahidi kuwa hadi kufikia mwezi Machi, 2017 serikali ilikuwa imetoa asilimia 34 tu ya bajeti yote ya 2016/2017. Jambo hili lina madhara makubwa katika utoaji wa huduma za jamii hasa elimu msingi yenye ubora  hasakwa mtoto wa kike”.
Aliongelea pia serikali kushindwa kutoa asilimia mia moja ya fedha za kutekeleza bajeti ya 2016/2017 tafiti zinaonyesha kuwa Tanzania inapoteza fedha nyingi kupitia misamaha ya kodi.

Meneja Mradi wa Elimu kutoka shirika la ActionAid Tanzania Ndugu Karoli Kadeghe aliwasilisha changamoto zinazoikabili elimu msingi hapa nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na: Upungufu wa vyumba vya madarasa, Upungufu wa ofisi za walimu, Upungufu wa vyoo vya wanafunzi,Uwiano usiokubalika kitaratibu wa mwalimu na wanafunzi, Shule nyingine kukosa kabisa walimu wa kike.

 Upungufu wa nyumba za walimu, fedha za ruzuku zisizotosheleza, utegemezi wa bajeti ya nchi za nje unaoathiri pia bajeti ya elimu na kusababisha Serikali kushindwa kugharimia kiufanisi utoaji wa elimu, mgawanyo wa ruzuku usiozingatia mahitaji halisi ya wenye uhitaji maalumu, jinsia na mahitaji ya kijiografia na pia shule changa na zile ambazo ni kongwe, Kuwa na mipango ya kibaguzi-Shule inayofanya vizuri ndiyo inapewa fedha(payment for results- P4R) kutoka mpango wa BRN bila kujali mizania ya usawa wa mazingira kati ya shule na shule, Kukosekana kwa mafunzo kazini kwa walimu, Kutopandishwa madaraja walimu, Kutolipwa kwa wakati stahiki za walimu wanaohamishwa/kustaafu mfano pesa ya usafiri.

Mratibu wa Inter Faith Standing Committee Bi. Grace Masalakulangwa aliwasilisha kuhusu Utafiti wa Ripoti ya “1 Billion Question” iliyojikita kubaini upotevu wa kodi katika sekta ya madini au uziduaji katika wilaya za Kilwa, Tarime na Geita. Utafiti huo umebaini serikali inapoteza takribani dola bilioni 1.83 sawa na Tsh trilioni 4.09 kwa mwaka kupitia misamaha ya kodi, uhamishaji wa fedha nje ya nchi bila kufuata utaratibu, kushindwa kutoza kodi sekta isiyo rasmi na aina nyingine za ukwepaji kodi.

Washiriki mbalimbali wakichangia katika mkutano huo, walishauri serikali kuboresha ukusanyaji wa kodi na utengaji wa bajeti katika sekta ya maendeleo hususani sekta ya elimu. Baadhi ya washiriki walichangia pia kukosekana kwa ufanisi na maendeleo yenye tija katika sekta ya Elimu kutokana na usimamizi mbovu wa elimu, serikali kushindwa kuwekeza katika elimu, kuwepo kwa wizara mbili zinazosimamia elimu na muda mwingine kuingiliana kwa majukumu pamoja na kutozingatiwa katika maslahi ya walimu.

          NI MARUFUKU MATANGAZO KWENYE MIITO YA SIMU - TCRA    
Mamlaka ya Mawasiliano Tanzania (TCRA), imepiga marufuku matangazo ya biashara yanayowekwa mtumiaji anapopiga simu ili kutoa fursa kwa watumiaji kupata mawasiliano bila usumbufu.

Mkurugenzi wa TCRA, Mhandisi James Kilaba amesema leo (Ijumaa) kuwa mamlaka hiyo imepokea malalamiko mengi kutoka kwa watumiaji wa simu wakilalamikia matangazo hayo yanayotolewa na kampuni za simu.

Amesema tayari TCRA imeshaziandikia barua kampuni zote za simu kusitisha matangazo hayo na itakutana nazo kwa majadiliano ya kina Julai 6.

Amesema mamlaka haitambui utaratibu huo na inauchukulia kama kero kwa watumiaji wa simu ambao hutegemea kutumia njia hiyo ya mawasiliano kurahisisha mambo.

“Tuna imani mtu anapopiga simu ana shida ya haraka na anahitaji afanye mawasiliano, unapomuwekea matangazo kwa dakika tatu au nne ni usumbufu,” amesema.

Katika siku za karibuni imekuwa ni kawaida kwa mtu anayepiga simu kusikiliza wimbo au matangazo ya biashara na baadaye kuambiwa namba anayopiga haipatikani.
