Call for papers: 5th African Languages in the Disciplines Conference

ABSTRACTS DUE MARCH 21, 2014

AFRICAN LANGUAGES IN THE DISCIPLINES (ALD)

Conference Dates: April 24 2014

Harvard University, Cambridge, MA

Please join us on April 24, 2014 for the fifth annual ALD conference, which will build on the important conversations of the previous four years as we continue to engage scholars and African heritage communities in serious discussion about the contributions of African languages to the disciplines.

Indigenous African languages are vital to comprehending how Africans understand, organize, and transmit essential knowledge to successive generations, both through oral and written traditions and through aesthetic practices. African languages also serve as road maps for identifying how social, political, and economic institutions change over time, and should therefore play a critical role in how we approach and interpret our research.

This conference aims to bring together a diverse range of scholars across a variety of disciplines. Possible themes include, but are not limited to, the contribution of African languages to the study of literature, music, film, performance, visual arts, media studies, history, philosophy, religion, anthropology, sociology, gender studies, political science, psychology, economics, development studies, education, geography, environmental science, legal studies, and public health.

Please apply online via our website www.alp.fas.harvard.edu/ald by March 21, 2014. We ask for a 250-word abstract outlining a 15-minute presentation as well as a brief biography.

Please contact the conference organizers with any questions at [email protected]

Turkey's Dirty Money: Still on FATF's gray list; Kenya and Tanzania removed

Cross-posting this piece by Tom Keatinge @Foreignaffairs.com

Earlier this month, financiers, bankers, and investors waited anxiously to see whether Turkey, having passed a law in 2013 to prevent the financing of terrorism, would be taken off the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF's) list of high-risk and noncooperative jurisdictions.


The result? ... Turkey will remain in uncomfortable company on the gray list of countries that the FATF, the G7-founded body charged with developing and implementing global standards to counter illicit financing, deems as having deficiencies in their efforts to combat money laundering and terrorism financing.

The body was most concerned about Turkey’s weak framework for identifying and freezing terrorist assets -- for example, its definition of "terrorism financing" is too narrow and its asset freezing procedure is too

Country risk: Sectarian violence increases in Tanzania

IHS Jane's Intelligence Weekly: Large-scale attacks by domestic militant groups unlikely but sectarian violence increases in Tanzania

Key Points

  • There are at least six organisations with known or suspected ties to Al-Shabaab, including Ansar Muslim Youth in Tanga and Jumuiya ya Taasisi za Kiislam and the Islamic faith group Uamsho (Awakening) primarily based in Zanzibar.
  • Although the risk of domestic insurgency from groups affiliated to Al-Shabaab is increasing from its currently elevated level, primary targets are more likely to be religious gatherings and buildings rather than commercial assets.
  • Domestic groups have little capability to stage large-scale attacks on hospitality, retail, or business assets. The highest risk of smaller-scale attacks, using IEDs and small-arms, is likely to be in Dar es Salaam, as well as Zanzibar and Tanga.

Ya kuzingatia kwenye mapambano dhidi ya kero za Muungano Tanzania

Imeandikwa na: Dk. Antipas Massawe - Mhandisi Migodi - Dar es Salaam.

Muungano Tanzania ulizaliwa tarehe 26 April, 1964. Sababu kubwa iliyopelekea kuzaliwa kwake ni moyo waliokuwa nao waasisi wake (Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere na Sheikh Abeid Amani Karume) wa kuunda Muungano wa nchi huru za Bara la Afrika wakianzia na shirikisho la Afrika ya Mashariki. Lengo lilikuwa kulinda na kudumisha mapinduzi ya Zanzibar ya tarehe 12 January, 1964 dhidi ya utawala wa wachache wa kisultani ulioondolewa madarakani na kuanzisha ujenzi wa shirikisho la Afrika ya Mashariki na Muungano wa Bara la Afrika kwa lengo la kujijengea uwezo wa kulinda uhuru wa waafrika na raslimali zao dhidi ya tamaa mbaya kutoka mataifa makubwa ya kibeberu.

Kuzaliwa Muungano Tanzania kulitokana na matakwa binafsi ya waasisi wake na wananchi wa kawaida pande mbili za Muungano hawakushirikishwa kikamilifu kwenye maamuzi yote husika kwenye kuundwa kwake na haionekani mahali popote chaguo la Muungano chini ya muundo wa serikali mbili lilihusisha

Antibiotics overuse: A price of success in the fight against Malaria in Africa

Steve Baragona’s report for the Voice of America — As malaria rates decline across much of Africa, a new study seeks to fight another problem.

Drug-resistant bacteria are a growing concern as antibiotics have become the automatic choice for treating a child with a fever.

Research from Tanzania, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, shows that most illnesses are caused by viral infections. Antibiotics do not kill viruses, and overuse of these important drugs is decreasing their effectiveness.

Success and challenge

Until recently, malaria has been so prevalent in many African countries that health workers assumed any

CCM imewatelekeza wasanii inaowatumia kwenye kampeni?

Imeandikwa na Bashir Nkoromo, Dar es Salaam — Akijibu swali la watangazaji katika kituo cha radio cha East Africa, Mikocheni, Dar es Salaam wiki iliyopita, na ambao walitaka kujua Nape alikuwa anasemaje kuhusu tetesi za mitaani kwamba wasanii CCM imewatelekeza wasanii ambao wamekuwa wakitumia kwenye kampeni zake, Nape alikanusha madai hayo.
"Wanaosema kwamba wasanii hao CCM imewatelekeza wanakosea, nadhani kwa kutojua hasa kuwa Chama kinawatumiaje.. Ni kwamba wakati wa shughukli zetu kama za kampeni huwa tunaingia nao mkataba wa kutufanyia kazi na tukisha walipa kwa makubaliano ya kazi husika, kazi ikimalizika hatuwezi kuendelea nao, matarajio yetu ni kwamba wataendelea na shughuli zao kama kawaida"

Emerging P4P results: An example of Tanzania

Increased income leads to improved household welfare

In Tanzania, households participating in P4P have almost doubled their maize production, from an average of 1.35 metric tons (mt) per hectare in 2009 to an average of 2.47 mt per hectare in 2011. In Malawi, participating households increased their maize production from an average of 1.53 mt per hectare to 2.37 mt per hectare during the same period. Particularly in Tanzania, this increase seems to be connected to the use of certified maize seeds and fertilizers, a practice encouraged through P4P capacity building.

A common investment that households make with their increased income is to improve their houses. Magreth Simon Mgeni from the Usomama Savings and Credit Cooperative (SACCO) in Tanzania is

Nakala ya barua ya Madiwani waliojiuzulu CHADEMA

Tofauti ya Ushauri na Unasihi - Mwalimu Gunda

Eleza kwa kifupi tofauti kati ya Unasihi na Ushauri?

Ushauri
huwa na lengo la kuzuia tatizo lisitokee, hivyo mara nyingi ushauri hutolewa kabla ya tatizo kutokea. Wakati wa ushauri, mteja (mshauriwa) huwa ni mpokeaji tu wa ushauri toka kwa mtoa ushauri. Mshauri anaweza kuwa ni mtu yeyote. Hivyo kwa ujumla, Ushauri hutolewa kwa mtu yeyote.

Nasaha (Unasihi) 
hutolewa baada ya tatizo kuwa limetokea. Mara nyingi nasaha hutolewa kwa lengo la kutibu au kupunguza uwezekano wa tatizo lililopo kutokea tena au kumfanya mwenye tatizo akubaliane na hali halisi kuwa analo tatizo na kuangalia namna ya kukubaliana na kukabiliana nalo. Wakati wa Unasihi, mtoa nasaha (Mnasihi) na mteja (mnasiwa) hubadilishana mawazo na si mpokeaji tu wa kile kinachopendekezwa na mnasihi. Unasihi hutokana na kujifunza na kuwa mtaalamu wa kutoa nasaha.Hivyo, unasihi hutolewa kwa mtu mwenye tatizo tu.

Paul: Who allows the allowances to be allowed?


THE UNSAVORY QUESTION of allowances for the Members of the Constitutional Assembly that is in session at the Capitol in Dodoma has irked many people, myself included.

We have been left AGHAST wondering, first, who gets paid TZS 300,000 per day – under what legislative approval – and wondering whether those who get paid such a hefty amount for a “poor” [sic] country like ours are “worth the money”?

As you can plainly see, we have a barrage of questions, with no answers. Well, today, as we talk about this touchy subject, I will – without permission from Makutano Show, which interviewed Special Member of Parliament, Ms. Maria Sarungi-Tsehai, who was appointed by President Kikwete to sit on the Constitutional Assembly – quote, word for word, paragraph for paragraph, exactly what she said, so that you get the idea of what's really happening:


Maria Sarungi-Tsehai: Whe you hear your name, that you have been nominated by the President, among the 44 million Tanzanians, to be a member of the Constitutional Assembly, you must realise two things – the first being sacrifice, this means that you should remember your duty to your country, that is, patriotism.


The second step you must take is ask yourself on the outcome of your absence from “home post”, that within these 70-90 days what will happen? What will be its cost when I leave? This is why I told Fina (Mango – co-host of Makutano Show) that I couldnt answer her at the time with regards to the allowances because I wasnt fully aware of the situation. I was under the impression that we would be given something like TZS 100,000 as our daily allowance so when I arrived here (Dodoma) I got settled; found my hotel and paid for my room.


I had heard about the TZS 700,000 allowance and was very skeptical about it, because I believed it would never work as it was too high an amount. So when I got to the Parliament, after registering, whence we were given forms to register and enter our data as well as answer all questions on the form correctly, we were then told about the allowances.


We were told that the Subsistence Allowance would be TZS 80,000 per day, while the Special Allowance would be TZS 220,000. The Subsistence Allowance goes towards hotel accommodation, meals and probably transportation to and from the Parliament. The Special Allowance is sort of like what we are supposed to be paid – not a sitting allowance -for our work. Call it remuneration. The total allowance being TZS 300,000 is so arranged, to the extent that, when we are not working, on weekends, we are entitled only to the Subsistence Allowance, we dont get the Special Allowance because we are not working on weekends. We get paid ONLY when we work, and I believe this is fair.


We have been favoured because people have supported us and expect us to come here and do what we are supposed to; give them a better constitution. I have been quite disappointed by those Special Members who stood up and started complaining that the Allowance was too small! It is really not our place to complain.


However, the issue of allowances is a bit thorny. I had already made a point that there are those people with special needs, such as the disabled, who will sit on the Assembly. The Government had made it clear that they will have a special rate and their helpers will also have an allowance. So that has been taken care of.


I tell those who had not understood the entire issue – of allowances – is that, if someone believes they should get better pay, for this is a patriotic assignment, they should just quit, because there are many people who want to be in that position, even for less! This is an issue of UZALENDO!

What seems to boggle the minds of many Tanzanians is the fact that the issue of “allowances” has received so much press coverage, due to the apparently selfish motives of those who have been given this UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY to represent 44 million Tanzanians, in a history making occasion! Why such importance on how much, in terms of amount, these people will receive in allowances, has brought so many questions, but also, it has disgusted many of us, because we expected that more pressing and more important – not allowances – issues would have received the priority they deserve! It seems, even the ruling party – CCM – is mired in this saga, which has turned out to be such a great fiasco, of horrible proportions.

Speaking the truth and nothing but the truth – so help me God – is the fact that Tanzanians expected that this history-making occasion would really bring out desired results. However, while the powers that be decided that the best way to carry out this momentuous task would be through a haphazardly made up Constitutional Assembly, which left out so many people representant of certain groups, and the set-up FAILED from DAY ONE!

A Member of Parliament from Zanzibar – lest I make a mistake – declared that Tanzanians should not expect a new constitution that is in THEIR FAVOR! Judging by the way things have been demonstrated, so far, this is TRUE!

WE HAVE BEEN WARNED!

In the meantime, those who believe that the set allowances are not enough for them should pack up and leave, and let those who can be satisfied with LESS sit in their place!

Facebook ends a service you probably never knew existed nor used



Facebook's touted the service as a "Gmail killer" before its launch in 2010, ended on Monday.

The current social media giant quietly retired the email service that many users didn't even know existed.

If you used to have one, you probably have or are going to receive a notice saying the @facebook.com email addresses they deployed are going away.

In a statement to TechCrunch, the company said:
“We’re making this change because most people haven’t been using their Facebook email address, and we can focus on improving our mobile messaging experience for everyone.” 

Facebook angered many users last year when it changed all the default personal email addresses to its email address service, all in an effort to capture and increase audience.

Now that the service is dead, Facebook will redirect any email sent to @facebook.com addresses to the primary email addresses of the account holders instead of their Facebook Messages inbox.

RATIBA YA UZIMAJI WA MITAMBO YA UTANGAZAJI YA ANALOJIA AWAMU YA PILI

Ndugu wananchi, napenda kuchukua nafasi hii kuwataarifu kuwa Awamu ya Pili ya Uzimaji wa Mitambo ya Utangazaji ya Analojia itaanza rasmi mwezi Machi mwaka huu.

Hoja ya Paul Makonda: Rasimu ya Katiba imewasahau Vijana

Paul Makonda, Godbless Lema

Mimi ni Kijana, ninayoyazungumza,ninayoyafanya yana reflect uhalisia huo. Hivyo kwa wito wa Ujana najikuta nashawishika sana kuongeza umakini katika masuala yahusuyo vijana hasa kwenye Katiba.

Ni ajabu lakini kweli kuwa sehemu inayotaja juu ya Haki na Wajibu wa Vijana katika Rasimu yote ni Ibara ya 44 tu, tena inataja kwa ujumla wake bila hata kuweka ibara ndogo ama vipengele vya ufafanuzi.

Ibara hiyo inasema;
"..kila kijana ana haki na wajibu wa kushiriki kikamilifu katika shughuli za maendeleo ya Jamhuri ya Muungano pamoja na jamii kwa ujumla, na kwa mantiki hiyo, Serikali ya Jamhuri ya Muungano, serikali za nchi washirika na jamii zitahakikisha kuwa vijana wanawekewa mazingira mazuri ya kuwa "Raia Wema" na kupatiwa fursa za kushiriki kikamilifu katika nyanja za kisiasa, kiuchumi, kijamii na kiutamaduni..."
Sikuwa nategemea huu unaweza ukawa ndio mwisho wa maelezo ya Rasimu kuhusu Vijana. Nilitegemea

Haya! Huko Tanganyika ziwani: Dini yakataza elimu

Na Sylvia Kombe, Kakonko, Kigoma — DINI mpya iitwayo Matengenezo imeingia wilayani Kakonko mkoani Kigoma ambapo waumini wake hawaendi sekondari wala hospitali kwa madai kuwa Biblia inawakataza kufanya hivyo.

Dini hiyo imegundulika juzi katika kijiji cha Rumashi kata ya Nyabibuye wilayani huko wakati Mkuu wa Wilaya hiyo Peter Toima alipokuwa akifanya ziara ya elimu katika shule za sekondari za wilayani hiyo mpya ambapo aligundua wanafunzi wengi kutokuripoti shuleni kwa ajili ya kuanza kidato cha kwanza.

Toima alipohoji kulikoni idadi kubwa ya wanafunzi kutoripoti katika shule walizapangiwa huku wale walioandikishwa darasa la kwanza pia nao kutokuripoti alielezwa kuwa wengine ni sababu za kiimani zinazowakataza kusoma.

Mkuu huyo wa wilaya alikatiza ziara yake na kuanza msako wa kuwasaka wanafunzi hao ambao hawajaripoti shuleni pamoja na waumini wa dini hiyo ya Matengenezo kwa madai kuwa inawakosesha watoto haki yao ya msingi na kukiuka sheria za nchi kwani ni haki ya kila mtoto kupata elimu.

Katika msako huo ambao alikuwa ameongozana na kamati ya ulinzi na usalama ya wilaya hiyo pamoja na watendaji wa Halmashauri wakiwemo Maafisa elimu msingi na Sekondari walifika katika familia ya

myElimu Project: A Promising Initiative to Improve Tanzania Education



In recent years Tanzania secondary school students haven't been doing so well in exams and a number of people blame it on science and technology, that is has made students spend much time on their smartphones and spend a lot of time on the social networks thus not finding time to study.

The claims are partial true as the statistics show the number of young engaging in the social networks increases daily in Tanzania.

However, the increase of youth engagement in social networks and the internet in general is not a bad thing but rather an opportunity to embrace - at least that's what Given thought when he started the myElimu Project.

Ni kama sinema: Walivyomkamata drug lord "El Chapo"

For 13 years Guzman watched from western Mexico's rugged mountains as authorities captured or killed the leaders of every group challenging his Sinaloa cartel's spot at the top of global drug trafficking.

Unscathed and his legend growing, the stocky son of a peasant farmer grabbed a slot on the Forbes' billionaires' list and a folkloric status as the capo who grew too powerful to catch. Then, late last year, authorities started closing in on the inner circle of the world's most-wanted drug lord. Bit by bit, they got closer to the crime boss.

As Mexican troops forced their way into Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's main hideout in Culiacan, the country's most powerful drug lord sneaked out of the house through an escape tunnel beneath the bathtub.

Mexican marines working with U.S. authorities chased him but lost the man known as "Shorty" in a maze of tunnels under the city... Read more - The Associate Press

Halmashauri ya Jiji la Arusha imefanya operesheni ya kubomoa nyumba zaidi ya 210 zinazomilikiwa na Halmahauri hiyo katika maeneo ya Levolosi, Kaloleni, na Themi kwa lengo la kupisha ujenzi wa miradi mbalimbali katika maeneo hayo.

Mkuu wa Wilaya ya Arusha Mjini, John Mongella amesema operesheni hiyo imezingatia taratibu zote ikiwa ni pamoja na kutoa notisi miezi kadhaa iliyopita kwa wapangaji wa nyumba hizo kuhama mapema, ili kupisha ubomoaji huo.
“Bahati mbaya sana, wapangaji walikuwa wanataka kusema hoja yao kubwa ni kusema kwamba wao wamekaa humu, wamezaa watoto humu, wamejukuza humu, kwa hiyo wana haki ya hizi nyumba kuwa zao. Ndiyo tofauti yetu ilipokuwa. Sasa mimi nasema, hivi inawezekana ukajenga nyumba, mpangaji ukamwambia kaa humu akaulipa kodi miaka mitano, akishapata wajukuu kesho atasema inageuka kuwa yake? Yaani wewe ukishajukuza kwenye nyumba ya mtu hiyo inakuwa yako?”
Alihoji Mhe. Mongella.
