Zoezi la uandikishaji daftari la wapiga kura: Kuku 100 wachomwa moto Pemba

Wameanza kuchoma kuku? inavyoelekea, mwaka ujao kutakuwako na kimbembe cha aina yake. Dalili za mvua ni mawingu... usipoziba ufa, utajajenga ukuta... mchelea mwana kulia, hulia yeye... mzaha mzaha hutumbua usaha... hamna hamna, ndimo mliwamo... samaki mkunje angali mbichi... mzaha mzaha mwishowe hutumbua usaha... lisemwalo lipo ikiwa halipo laja... mwenye macho haambiwi tazama... bora kinga kuliko tiba kamili... ajidhaniaye amesimama aangalie asianguke...
Ni hayo tu kwa sasa!
WATU wasiojulikana wamechoma moto banda la kuku la Katibu Mwenezi wa Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) wa Mkoa wa Kaskazini Pemba, Kombo Hamad Yussuf, zaidi ya kuku 100 wamekufa. Hujuma hiyo inayohusishwa na siasa imefanywa usiku wa manane kuamkia leo katika eneo la Makaani nje kidogo ya kijiji cha Kangagani, jimbo la Ole, Wete. Mkuu wa Wilaya ya Wete, Omar Khamis Othman, amesema leo kuwa, hujuma hiyo imefanywa katika eneo ambalo uboreshaji wa Daftari la Kudumu la Wapiga Kura unaendelea. Amesema, tukio hilo lina uhusiano wa moja kwa moja na mambo ya kisiasa hasa ikizingatiwa kuwa aliyefanyiwa hujuma hiyo ni kiongozi wa CCM.

Kwa mujibu wa Othman, Yussuf amekuwa akiongoza uhamasishaji wa wanachama na wafuasi wa chama hicho kwenda kujiandikisha. “Hii ni siasa moja kwa moja, si ajali ya kawaida… ni jambo la kusononesha mifugo kama kuku haina hatia yoyote inachomwa moto ni masikitiko makubwa sana,” amesema Othman. Kiongozi huyo wa Serikali ya Mapinduzi ya Zanzibar (SMZ) amesema, Serikali itawasaka wahusika kwa nguvu zote kwa kuwa hujuma hizo zinarudisha nyuma juhudi za kujikwamua na umasikini.

Othman amesema, wanasiasa watabeba lawama kwa kuwa kama si wao hakuna mtu angeweza kuwachoma kuku hao. Amewaomba wananchi watoe ushirikiano kwa Jeshi la Polisi kuwafichua watu wanaofanya hujuma na anaamini ni watu wanaofahamika kwa kuwa hawatoki mbali ya kisiwa cha Pemba. Wakati huo huo kuna taarifa kwamba, watu wasiojulikana wamechoma moto banda la kuku la mfuasi wa Chama cha Wananchi, CUF, Ali Salim Mussa usiku wa kuamkia leo.

    • Candidates must be suitably proficient in the language of instruction (French, German, Italian or English) in order to draw full benefit from their studies in Switzerland.

    • Swiss government scholarships may not be combined with other scholarships or awards.
  3. Length and amount Scholarships are provided for a nine-month academic year. Scholarships for postgraduate or Masters programmes lasting up to 2 years (3 or 4 semesters) may be extended depending on results from the first year.

    CHF 1920.- for fine arts and music students
    CHF 1600.- for students attending language courses in Fribourg or Lugano
    The Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students does not cover the cost of academic and /or term fees.

In the event that these fees are not waived, it is up to the scholarship holder to arrange payment.
  4. Application procedure
    1. If you fulfil the eligibility requirements contact the Swiss diplomatic representation in your country of origin.
    2. The diplomatic representation will provide you with all the necessary information regarding the procedure including application forms and a list of required documentation.
  5. Awards Technically, the scholarships are offered to the government of the student's country of origin and not to the student. Applications are subject to preliminary selection by the relevant national authorities and the Swiss diplomatic representation. The Swiss diplomatic representation then passes on the selected applications to the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS) which subsequently takes the final decision. The FCS is composed of academic staff drawn from Swiss universities. Scholarship awards are made on the basis of academic and scientific excellence.
