Julius Kambarage Nyerere - Dodoma, Tanzania (1995)

Hii video niliiposti mwaka jana, hivi leo nairudia ikiwa ni katika maadhimisho ya kumbukumbu ya kifo cha Mwalimu, Baba wa Taifa, hayati Julius Kambarage Nyerere!

Marehemu Baba wa Taifa la Tanzania, Mwl. Julius Kambarage Nyerere alipozungumza na WanaCCM mwaka 1995 katika ukumbi wa Chama cha Mapinduzi huko Dodoma (nadhani ilikuwa ni Chamwino) katika ukumbi wa Chimwaga (asante kaka Michuzi I.M kwa marekebisho sahihi) kwenye mchakato wa kumtafuta mgombea wa kiti cha uraisi kwa tiketi ya CCM. Mwalimu alisema:

Julius Kambarage Nyerere - Mwalimu wewe ni nani? (ushairi)

Nilipo kuwa mdogo niliona picha zako,
Nilipo kwenda shule, tuliimba nyimbo juu yako,
Hata redioni nilisikia ukihutubia,
Vijiweni ulikuwa gumzo,
Mwalimu, wewe ni nani?

Wengine walikuita Mwenyekiti,
Kwa wote ulikuwa ni Rais,
Wengi tunakuita Baba wa Taifa,
Dunia inakujua kama Mwalimu,
Mwalimu, wewe ni nani?

Wajukuu wanakuita Babu,
Watoto wanakuita Baba,
Castrol na Shivji, watakuita Comrade!
Maria anakuita mume,
Mwalimu, wewe ni nani?

Msumbiji na Angola kwao u mkombozi,
Burundi na Rwanda kwao u mpatanishi,
Idi Amini kwake u mvamizi,
Mwalimu, wewe ni nani?

Je Mwalimu wewe ni picha za ukutani?
Au maneno mazuri katika nyimbo na hotuba?
Au ni ile sanamu pale New World Cinema?
Mwalimu, wewe ni nani?

Kama ni Mwenyekiti, Je tu wanachama?
Kama ni Mwalimu, Je tu wanafunzi?
Kama ni Baba wa Taifa Je tu watoto ?
Kwako, Mwalimu ni nani?

Poem on Kambarage Nyerere by Neema Ndunguru

Kambarage Nyerere,
How we wish you were here.
Thank you for your patience and for making us persevere.

But dear Mwalimu, why didn’t you tell us, expose and prepare us
For the turmoil and struggles that have now engulfed us?

Why didn’t we continue to build ourselves, our capacities and our attitudes?
And recognize the potential that is within us?
Appreciate the beauty of our land?
Protect and respect the abundance of our resources?

Why weren’t we encouraged and persuaded to think beyond our limitations?
To serve our country and be duly recognized for our efforts?

We remained suffering as we looked in awe at those outside our boarders?
As though their grass was greener than those of our majestic hills.
As though their water was fresher than that of our sparkling rivers.

We invited them in.
And they saw that which we never saw in ourselves.
They’ve come to take it. And here we remain. Still…. having peace.

Kambarage Nyerere,
Thank you for the peace you promoted in this country.
A solid foundation of humanity.
We’ve loved our nation. But we’ve never embraced ourselves.

So where do we go from here? And how do we change our steps?

Dear Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere,
Things may have been a little different if you were here.
How we wish you were here.

Weinstein International Fellowship

The Weinstein International Fellowship program, inaugurated in 2008, provides opportunities for individuals from outside the United States to visit the U.S. to learn more about dispute resolution processes and practices and to pursue a project of their own design that serves to advance the resolution of disputes in their home countries.

The JAMS Foundation Board of Directors will approve Fellowships of up to $25,000 in support of projects outlined by Fellowship applicants. This program is intended to be flexible and open to innovation, and applicants are encouraged to develop proposals that will increase the availability of dispute resolution education, training and services in their home countries and beyond.

During their time in the U.S., Fellows may be based in a JAMS Resolution Center or may participate in a university program or be connected to another organization or institution, depending on the nature of their project. Fellowships may be from one month to one year in duration.

It is anticipated that Fellows will come from countries that do not have an established culture of using mediation for cases in litigation. Part of the Fellows’ time in the United States will be spent observing how JAMS administers and resolves such cases.

  1. Applicants must be fluent in English
  2. Fellowship period must be one month to twelve months in duration
  3. Preference for proposals that would help applicant’s home country establish viable dispute resolution systems or change how disputes are resolved
  4. Preference for applicants who have experience as judges, lawyers, court administrators, or law professors
Information Sought From Applicant
  1. Purpose and goal of Fellowship
  2. Educational background
  3. Dispute resolution training or experience
  4. Amount of funding sought and proposed use of funds
