EU Statement following that of EU Heads of Mission in Tanzania

PRESS RELEASE

Brussels — The government decision of January 23rd to suspend the circulation of "The East African", a longestablished regional newspaper, gives rise to concerns about freedom of press in Tanzania.

It is the duty of the media to work within the law and to make every effort to adopt and a dhere to professional standards. But Press Freedom and freedom to express opinions are fundamental rights of the people, which call for circumspection and proportionality in the application of the law.

The Delegation of the European Union expresses its concern that modern media legislation in Tanzania, including on the citizens' Right to Information, has not yet been promulgated despite the longstanding requests of the media profession and the repeated commitments of the Government.

It is recalled that in October 2010 the EU's independent Election Observation Mission recommended expediting modernisation of the media laws, taking into account stakeholders' views.

The Delegation of the European Union calls upon the Government to make every effort to preserve the freedom of expression in Tanzania and it urges all stakeholders to prioritise constructive dialogue as the primary means to resolve differences.

It also reiterates its commitment to monitor, support promote and monitor media freedom as a shared value of the EU partnership with Tanzania.

The High Commission of Canada and Embassies of Norway and Switzerland associate themselves with this statement.

Download Facebook Lite for Android to reduces app overhead


Facebook released Facebook Lite, a super lightweight version of its app directed at developing markets.

Currently, the app is only available officially in a few countries—Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.

The app is just about 252KB only (as opposed to the 27MB that the main app can usually take up), so if you're on an older device, a slower network, or just don't want all the extra junk, Facebook Lite is probably exactly what you were looking for. 

Alternatively, if you don't like it, the mobile site is always a good alternative.

Download Facebook lite from: Google Play  or APK mirror.

Death Row Records co-founder involved in fatal hit-and-run

The attorney for Marion "Suge" Knight says his client plans to turn himself in to authorities after he accidentally ran over and killed a friend and injured another man as he fled attackers in Compton, Calif.

Authorities are investigating Thursday's incident as a homicide.

Los Angeles County sheriffs say it looks like Knight's pickup truck backed over the victims and then drove forward and struck them again.

The empty truck was found Thursday night in a Los Angeles parking lot.

Death Row Records was a leading rap label in the 1990s.

It was founded by Tracy "The D.O.C." Lynn Curry, Andre "Dr. Dre" Young, Marion "Suge" Knight and Richard Gilbert "Dick" Griffey.

It featured artists such as Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg.

Rais Salva Kirr alazwa hospitali baada ya kuugua ghafla

Rais wa Soudan Kusini, Salva Kirr, amelazwa hospitali baada ya kuugua ghafla, na kukimbizwa katika hospitali ya mjini Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Mashahidi wamesema kwamba rais Kiir, alianza kuvuja damu kutoka puani.

Hayo yanatokea baada ya rais Kiir kuanzisha mazungumzo Jumatano wiki hii na kiongozi wa waasi Riek Machar kujadili masuala kwa lengo la kukomesha vita viliyosababisha maafa makubwa ambavyo vimedumu kwa zaidi ya mwaka mmoja nchini Sudan Kusini.

Pande hizi mbili bado hazijaafikiana kuhusu kuundwa kwa serikali ya mpito. Maelfu ya watu wamekufa na zaidi ya milioni wameyakimbia makazi yao tangu kuanza kwa vita vya wenyewe kwa wenyewe mwezi Desemba mwaka 2013.
Kabla ya kuugua, hapo jana Jumatano Kiir alifanya mazungumzo na kiongozi wa waasi Riek Machar ambapo alimtaka kupuuzilia mbali maswala yanayochochea machafuko ili kumaliza Machafuko hayo ambayo yamedumu zaidi ya mwaka mmoja sasa.

Viongozi wa kikanda, wanakutana baadaye leo, kushinikiza pande zote kufikia makubaliano ili kumaliza vita.

Hata hivyo rais wa Mali, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, kwa mujibu wa shirika la habari la Ufaransa (AFP) huenda amefuta ziara yake nchini Ethiopia kushiriki katika mkutano wa kilele wa marais na viongozi wa Afrika, na amejielekeza katika mji wa Gao, ambapo maandamano na vurugu dhidi ya vikosi vya Umoja wa Mataifa, MINUSMA yaliyosababisha vifo vya watu wengi. Hii ni mara ya kwanza rais huyo kujielekeza kaskazini mwa Mali tangu achaguliwe.

PAC yaishauri Serikali namna ya kuinusuru TTCL

Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya Kudumu ya Bunge ya Hesabu za Serikali (PAC), Kabwe Zitto (kulia) na Makamu Mwenyekiti wa Kamati hiyo, Deo Filikunjombe wakiwa katika majukumu yao

Ofisa Mtendaji Mkuu wa Kampuni ya Simu Tanzania (TTCL), Dk. Kamugisha Kazaura (kushoto) akiwa katika majukumu.

KAMATI ya Bunge ya Hesabu za Serikali (PAC) imetoa mapendekezo ya kuinusuru Kampuni ya Simu Tanzania (TTCL) kutokana na hali mbaya ya kampuni hiyo kifedha kwa sasa ambapo inaendeshwa kwa hasara huku ikiwa na madeni makubwa. PAC imetoa mapendekezo hayo katika taarifa yao kwa bunge ya mwaka juu ya ukaguzi wa hesabu za Serikali kwa mashirika ya umma iliyotolewa Januari 28 mwaka 2015.

Kwa mujibu wa taarifa ya PAC hali ya mapato na matumizi ya TTCL kwa mwaka 2012 ilipata hasara ya bilioni 20.883 huku kwa mwaka 2013 ikipata hasara ya bilioni 16.258. PAC ilisema majumuisho ya hasara ya TTCL kupata hasara kwa takribani kwa miaka 10, Kampuni sasa imekuwa na hasara ambayo kwa mwaka 2013 ilifikia bilioni 334.48, jambo ambalo limeiondolea mvuto wa kukopeshwa na taasisi za fedha hata zile zenye nia ya kuikopesha.

"...Ukosefu wa fedha za kutosha kutekeleza miradi ya Kampuni umekuwa kikwazo kwa TTCL kukabiliana na ushindani wa kibiashara. Kwa kipindi kirefu ufanisi wa TTCL kiuwekezaji na kifedha umeendelea kudorora. Tangu TTCL ibinafsishwe mwaka 2001, hakuna uwekezaji mkubwa uliofanyika na mpango wa kutafuta mkopo kutoka mabenki ya ndani na nje ya nchi unakwamishwa na masharti ya kupata udhamini wa Serikali," ilieleza taarifa hiyo ya PAC.

PAC iliongeza kuwa ukiacha madeni yaliopo pia TTCL inadaiwa na Mamlaka ya Udhibiti wa Mawasiliano Tanzania (TCRA) jumla ya bilioni 25 hivyo kufanya jumla ya deni kufikia bilioni 101.6. Kamati hiyo ya bunge imesema kuna umuhimu wa Serikali kufanya maamuzi ya haraka ya kuikwamua TTCL ili iweze kuendelea kutoa huduma kwenye Sekta ya Mawasiliano ikizingatiwa kuwa ndiyo inayoendesha Mkongo wa Taifa wa mawasiliano.

Katika mapendekezo ya PAC ili kuikwamua TTCL imeishauri Serikali kununua hisa asilimia 35 zinazomilikiwa na Bharti Airtel katika TTCL kwa gharama ndogo kwani Bharti Airtel haikutimiza kikamilifu masharti ya mkataba wa mauziano ya hisa hizo hapo awali kwani tangu inunue hisa hizo haijafanya uwekezaji katika Kampuni ya TTCL.

"...TTCL isamehewe deni la Serikali Sh. 76.6 bilioni na deni la TCRA Sh. 25 bilioni ambayo jumla yake ni Sh. 101.6 bilioni na fedha hizo zipelekwe kuongeza mtaji ili Kampuni itoke kwenye kuwa na mtaji hasi wa Sh. 87.896 bilioni na kuwa na mtaji chanya wa sh. 13.704 bilioni. Likifanyika hili basi Kampuni hiyo itaweza kukopesheka. Serikali ikamilishe taratibu zake za kuimilikisha TTCL Mkongo wa Taifa ili izidi kuuendeleza kwa ufanisi na kuongeza mapato ya TTCL," ilieleza sehemu ya taarifa hiyo.

Hata hivyo PAC imeshauri kuwa kuna umuhimu wa kufanya marekebisho ya muundo wa Kampuni ya TTCL kwani kwa sasa ina idadi kubwa ya wafanyakazi (1549) isiyoweza kuwalipa. Aidha, ilibainisha kuwa kwa sasa zinahitajika bilioni 32 kwa ajili ya kugharamia urekebishaji wa muundo wa Kampuni ili uendane na mahitaji ya utoaji wa huduma mbalimbali.

Mashirika mengine yenye hali mbaya kifedha na uendeshaji ni pamoja na Shirika la Ndege Tanzania, ATCL ambayo kwa sasa ina madeni makubwa huku ikiwa na ndege moja aina ya Dash 8–Q 300, Wafanyakazi 142 na Jengo la ATC House lililoko mtaa wa Ohio, Dar es Salaam.
