Siasa za Bongo, yale yalee ya Mtakuja! Vikibuma, we rudi CCM

Nenda uendako, kurudi utarudi kijijini Mtakuja! Unabisha?


Part of news  from AllAfrica.com
The first woman to run for president in Tanzania, Dr Ana Senkoro has defected to the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM). CCM's secretary general, Yusufu Makamba, introduced her as a new member of the party at a press conference at the party's sub head office in Dar es Salaam yesterday, saying her crossing over has boosted the party. Mr Makamba was accompanied by national executive committee (NEC) member and agriculture minister, Steven Wassira ( a veteran politician). He said Dr Senkoro was a person of exceptional resolve and like all women, was always for orderly conduct of doing things, including politics. CCM was really where she belonged, he added. Dr Senkoro emerged eighth among ten presidential candidates in 2005, with 0.17 percent of the vote, an icebreaking step forward for the post's first female candidate.

She ditched her former Progressive Party of Tanzania-Maendeleo (PPT-Maendeleo), with a train of supporters, including her driver, Edgar Simtore, Ms Perpetua Simon and Mr Charles Chirwa. Towards the end of campaigns in 2005, Dr Senkoro suffered a debilitating stroke and revisited that experience yesterday as being partly the reason she has joined CCM. Her former party, she said, neglected her and it was rival candidate, President Jakaya Kikwete, who footed her medical bill.

Former civil servant, Peter Mziray, a youthful Russian trained agro-economist, is the leader of the socialist leaning PPT-Maendeleo. It was not immediately certain what role Dr Senkoro would play in her new party although she made it clear that she had no plans to contest the Same East parliamentary seat where she hails from.

Firebrand legislator, Anne Kilango Malecela, wife of CCM stalwart, John Malecela, is the incumbent MP for the constituency. Mr Malecela is also MP for Mvumi, Dodoma.

Mpaka lini hali hii jamani? WHY? Kwanini lakini?

Habari na picha nimezitoa kwenye blogu ya PwaniRaha.com, nimezitumia hapa na kwingineko kwa madhumuni ya kufikisha ujumbe huu ulio na sura ya uchungu na taabu ijapokuwa wanaoonekana kwenye picha wamevaa nyuso za furaha na pengine zenye matumaini. Ama kwa hakika Mwenyezi Mungu ni mwingi wa uvumilivu na ajua kuingia na kutoka kwa viumbe wake. Ole! Ole ni wao wanaojilimbikizia mali na kudhulumu haki ya mnyonge. Ole! Siku hiyo ya kiama, kwa hakika sitachelewa kusogeza kuni na vijinga vya moto ikiwa nitapewa kazi hiyo kwa kuwasogezea hao wanaojijua wanachokifanyia jamii hii ya WaTanzania. Naomba Mungu akupeni haki yenu stahili kwa kadiri ya nafasi zenu mlizopewa katika nchi hii na hayo mnayoyafanya. Mnajijua! Nami ninajijua vile vile katika nafasi yangu. Mungu na awape rehema wale wote wanaoteseka na kupata taabu kutokana na maongozi mabaya na yanayomnyima haki mnyonge, iko siku na siku yaja, wataelimika hawa, wataijua haki yao na wataidai haki hiyo kutoka mikononi mwa walioipokonya.
Ninaendelea kujifariji kwa maneno haya!

Mwanasheria ICTR akutwa amekufa mezani, sebuleni!

Habari imeandikwa na Richard Konga kutoka Arusha wa gazeti la Majira.co.tz

MWANASHERIA wa Mahakama ya Kimataifa ya Mauaji Rwanda (ICTR), Bw. Shyamlal Rajapaksa (42) raia wa Sri Lanka, amekufa katika mazingira ya kutatanisha ndani ya nyumbani yake eneo la Naura, Daraja mbili mjini hapa.

Kifo hicho kinadaiwa kutokea juzi saa tano usiku . Taarifa zaidi zinasema kabla ya hapo ,watu wawili mmoja aliyefahamika kwa jina moja la Alifa, walifika nyumbani kwake na kabla ya kuingia, waliwasiliana naye kwa simu na kuamuru mlinzi awafungulie. Mlinzi huyo aliyefahamika kwa jina la Bw. Tumaini Lukumay, aliwafungulia na kuingia ndani kisha kuanza kunywa pombe na kubadilishana mawazo kwa zaidi ya saa tatu. Ilipofika saa 5:30 usiku, vijana hao walitoka na kumuaga mlinzi huyo ambaye alifunga mlango na kurudi kuendelea na lindo bila kujua chochote kilichoendelea ndani ya nyumba hiyo.

Asubuhi, msaidizi wa ndani aliyetajwa kwa jina la Bi. Joyce David (36) alifika kuanza kazini na kumkuta mwanasheria huyo akiwa amelala kifudifudi sebuleni na kutokwa damu puani na mdomoni. Alitoa taarifa katika Kituo Kikuu cha Polisi, ndipo walikwenda na kuchunguza eneo la tukio kabla kuchukua mwili huo kuupeleka Hospitali ya Mkoa ya Mount Meru. Polisi walipoingia ndani, walikuta chupa za pombe aina ya Konyagi na baada ya kuchunguza, waligundua unga unaosadikiwa kuwa dawa za kulevya pamoja na bangi. Walichukua vitu hivyo pamoja na simu ya kiganjani ya marehemu kuvipelekwa kwa Mkemia Mkuu kwa uchunguzi zaidi.

Kamanda wa Polisi mkoani Arusha, Bw. Basilio Matei, amethibitisha kutokea kifo hicho na kueleza kuwa atatoa taarifa kamili baada uchunguzi kukamilika.
