Taarifa: Sitisho la shindano la TMT kutokana na msiba wa George Tyson















TAARIFA KWA UMMA

Kampuni ya Proin Promotions Limited ambayo ni waandaaji na waendeshaji wa Shindano la Tanzania Movie Talents inapenda kuutangazia umma wa Watanzania na wadau wote wa tasnia ya maigizo Tanzania kuwa imepokea kwa masikitiko makubwa sana taarifa za msiba wa Mtayarishaji na Muongozaji mahiri wa vipindi vya runinga na filamu, Ndugu George Tyson ambaye alifariki dunia tarehe 30 Mei 2014 kwa ajali ya gari iliyotokea eneo la Gairo mkoani Morogoro akiwa njiani kurudi Dar es Salaam.

Walimu wawaadhibu wanafunzi kwa kutumia 'pedi' chafu

Gazeti la HabariLeo limeripoti kuwa Walimu wanne wa shule ya Sekondari Kindai katika Manispaa ya Singida wamepewa agizo la kuwataka kuhama mara moja baada ya kukiri kuwa walitoa adhabu ya udhalilishaji kwa wasichana wote wa shule hiyo, kwa madai kuwa mmoja wao alitupa chooni taulo ya kike (sanitary pad/ 'pedi' ) iliyotumika.

Walimu waliohusika na mkasa huo na kukumbwa na tamko hilo ni Hadija Mussa, Sara Kabogo, Evodia Zablon na Elina Mathias ambao walikiri kutenda kosa hilo na kuahidi kutorudia tena.

Sababu zilizowafanya Kambi Rasmi ya Upinzani, kutoka nje ya Bunge jana jioni wakiongozwa na Kiongozi wake, Freeman Mbowe, zimewekwa hadharani kuwa ni madai ya wenzao wa CCM walishajipanga kupitisha Bajeti hiyo, huku pia wakilalamikia ratiba ya mkutano huo wa 15 wa Bunge.

Hata hivyo, Spika Makinda alisema ratiba ya mkutano huo ilipangwa na Kamati ya Uongozi ambayo pia

Tanzania's soccer team kicked out of hotel in Zimbabwe

Tanzania’s national football team, Taifa Stars on Thursday was kicked out of the hotel they were booked in ahead of their crucial return leg against Zimbabwe this Sunday, it has been reported.

This is because the Zimbabwe Football Authority (ZIFA) hosting the team, failed to pay their accommodation, broadcast journalist Ezra Tshisa Sibanda says.
“This is a disgrace and a total failure by those in charge of the football association. I wouldn’t mind the players and technical staff deserting camp and going back to their clubs leaving Cuthbert Dube, CEO Mashingaidze and their board to play against Tanzania,”
said Sibanda. --- (zimeye.org report).

Eti? Walimu wagwaya kuadhibu wanafunzi kisa, wataharibu ndoa!

Walimu wa kike wa shule za msingi wilayani Ruangwa mkoani Lindi, wanaogopa kutoa adhabu kwa wanafunzi wa kike kutokana na wanafunzi hao kuwachukulia waume zao kama kulipiza kisasi kwa adhabu wanayopewa na walimu wao.

Kadhalika walimu wa kiume wanaogopa kutoa adhabu kwa wanafunzi wakiume kwa hofu ya kuchomewa nyumba zao moto.

Mwalimu wa kike ambaye hakupenda jina lake liandikwe gazetini alisema aliwahi kutoa adhabu kwa

Mfano hai wa watu wanakuanda​ma mtandaoni bila sababu (Trolls)

Licha ya kuwa sehemu muhimu za kubailishana mawazo, na pengine kufahamiana na watu mbalimbali, mitandao ya kijamii (social networks) ina upande wa pili ambao kwa hakika unaweza kuyafanya maisha yako yawe magumu mtandaoni. Pengine umeshawahi kusikia kuhusu watu wanaoitwa TROLLS. Pengine ushawahi kukutana nao, iwe Twitter au Facebook au hata Instagram. TROLL ni mtu anayeamua kukuandama kwenye mtandao wa kijamii pasipo sababu ya msingi.

Mara nyingi TROLLS humwandama mtu mwenye umaarufu bila kujali umaarufu huo unatokana na nini. Mtandao wa kijamii unaopendelewa zaidi na TROLLS ni Twitter. Na mara nyingi TROLLS humwandama mtu mwenye followers wengi, pengine lengo likiwa ni kusababisha madhara makubwa kwa mtu huyo. Hapa ninamaanisha kuwa kwa mfano TROLL anapo-tweet kitu kibaya dhidi yako, anatamani watu wengi

Utaifa Wetu - Tuzungumze na Costantine Magavilla

Kuna maswali manne ambayo yamekuwa yakiniumiza kichwa baada ya mjadala wa muundo wa serikali kupamba moto kwenye mchakato wa kuunda Katiba mpya ya Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania

Costantine Magavilla
Costantine Magavilla
  1. Kwanza, je utaifa wetu ni nini? Ina maanisha nini mtu kujiita Mtanzania? 
  2. Pili, je kuna usahihi kutofautisha dhana ya Utaifa na serikali? Kwa maana kuu moja, katika mijadala ya kisiasa kuna usahihi tukitofautisha au kuweka mipaka kwenye kujadili masuala yanayohusu Taifa hili kukomea kwenye majukumu ya serikali na vyombo vingine vya kitendaji? 
  3. Tatu, je Nyerere na Karume wana makosa kwenye hili suala la muungano? Je Karume alikosea kuongoza mapinduzi ya Zanzibar? Je Nyerere alikosea kuungana na jirani yake nchi nyingine huru kuunda nchi moja? 
  4. Nne, je tumekosea wapi kama Taifa hadi tunafika sehemu hii tulipo sasa tunahoji Utaifa wetu au tunatoa fursa kwa watu kuhoji dhana ya Utaifa na watu wanakubali kuhoji Utaifa wetu?

Je Utaifa wetu ni nini?

Nikianza na swali la kwanza linalosema Utaifa wetu ni nini? Tukisema sisi ni Watanzania tunamaanisha nini? Mtu akisema yeye ni Mmarekani inamaanisha nini? Mtu akisema yeye ni Mjerumani au Muingereza inamaanisha nini? Mimi ninaamini katika hili, Utaifa wa nchi hautofautiani na nafsi ya binadamu. Mwanadamu hawezi kujitenganisha na historia yake. Hawezi kuchagua tukio moja na kuliacha lingine katika mjumuisho wa yale mambo yaliyopelekea kumfanya yeye awe

Rai ya Mengi kuhusu uzushi wa kikabila unaosambazwa

Hivi karibuni nimeshuhudia kusambazwa kwa taarifa mbalimbali kupitia ujumbe mfupi wa simu (sms) na mitandao ya jamii zikinihusisha na tuhuma mbalimbali.

Napenda kuufahamisha umma kwamba taarifa zote zilizotolewa kupitia njia hizo ni za uongo, chuki, na uzushi. Kilichonisikitisha sana ni kuona kuwa uzushi huo unachochea kuifarakanisha jamii yetu kwa misingi ya ukabila jambo ambalo ni hatari kwa umoja na mshikamano ambao Tanzania tumejitahidi sana kuujenga, na mtu yeyote anayediriki kuleta uchochezi wa kikabila hastahili kuwa kiongozi wa ngazi yoyote katika taifa letu.

Police in Kenya seize vessel with Tanzanian flag

Police in Mombasa, Kenya are holding a fishing boat with a Tanzanian flag, which docked at Mbaraki wharf on May 5. The docking yard is normally used by warships. Police said Lucky Star Zanzibar does not have a permit to fish in Kenyan waters or offload its cargo in the country.

The vessel was carrying 15 tonnes of fish. Police and the Fisheries department at the Coast are probing the 10 crew members, including several Kenyans. The vessel is under tight security by the police and navy.

Coast assistant director of fisheries Nicholas Ntheketha said they have written to Tanzanian authorities to inquire if the vessel and crew members are registered in their territory. The vessel's agent, Diverse Shipping Agents, have also been told to explain the lack of proper documents by their client.

Mkuu wa Wilaya ya Sumbawanga mkoani Rukwa, Mathew Sedoyeka amepiga marufuku kwa kijana yeyote wa kiume mahali popote wilayani humo kuvaa suruali kwa staili ya "Kata K".

Pia aliwaagiza viongozi wa Serikali za Mitaa, Vijiji, Kata, Tarafa na Wilaya kushirikiana na Kamati za Ulinzi na Usalama katika maeneo yao ya kiutawala kuwachukulia hatua kali vijana wowote wa kiume watakaobainika kuvaa suruali zao kwa staili hiyo ya Kata K.

Alitoa maagizo hayo hivi karibuni akihutubia mikutano mbalimbali ya hadhara wilayani humo.

Alisema tabia hiyo ya vijana wa kiume kuvaa suruali zao kinyume cha utaratibu haiwezi kuvumilika kwa kuwa inatukanisha jamii. Alionya Watanzania hususani vijana kuachana na tabia ya kuiga kila kitu kutoka nje ya nchi ikiwemo uvaaji wa nguo zisizo na staha.

Why TPDF won in Uganda? Amin’s former top soldier reveals

"His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular"
 Nearly 35 years after the Tanzania People’s Defence Forces (TPDF) bravely defended the country and finally ousted Uganda’s Idi Amin Dada, Colonel Abdu Kisuule, a former close ally of the dictator, reveals why he and thousands of his soldiers were defeated. A few months after the 1971 coup, Ugandan troops, led by Col Kisuule, went into Tanzania to rescue their colleagues who had strayed into the country, ostensibly looking for water. Seven years later, he commanded the Ugandan troops which invaded the Kagera Salient, sparking off the 1979 liberation war.
Amin came back to Kampala, leaving the operation to retake Masaka in my hands. By then, Lukaya was still in our control but our soldiers had looted everything they could lay their hands on, and the locals had all fled. This made us a target anytime and for that reason I decided to put my tactical headquarters in Buwama at the county office, and I ordered all soldiers to stay 500m away from the centre.

Taarifa ya SUMATRA ya kuhamisha kituo cha daladala Mwenge-Makumbusho

Wamiliki, madereva na abiria wote mnatangaziwa kuwa kituo cha daladala Mwenge kitafungwa rasmi siku ya Jumapili jioni tarehe 01.06.2014.

Kuanzia siku ya jumatatu asubuhi tarehe 02.06.2014 kituo kitakachokuwa kinatumika ni Makumbusho tu.

Sababu kubwa ya kufunga kituo hicho ni ufinyu wa eneo hilo jambo linalochangia dadalada kushindwa kuingia kituoni kwa wakati hasa vipindi vya asubuhi na jioni hivyo kusababaisha foleni kubwa katika eneo la Mwenge.

Kwa mujibu wa Ofisi ya Mkuu wa Mkoa eneo hilo kwa sasa litabaki kuwa eneo la wazi.

Madereva mnatakiwa kutii agizo hili ili kuepukana na hatua kali ambazo zitachukuliwa dhidi ya yeyote ambae atakaidi, aidha abiria mnatakiwa msilazimishe kushushwa eneo ambalo hakuna kituo cha daladala.

Barabara za kuingia na kutoka kituoni Makumbusho zinaendelea kukarabatiwa na Manispaa ya Kinondoni ili kusiwe na tatizo la kuingia kituoni hapo.

Gone from Bad to Worse!


(It all started with Retired President Ali Hassan Mwinyi! “Mzee wa Ruksa”! Like it or not, WE HAVE BECOME MORE CORRUPT ever since the retirement from politics by the Late Father of the Nation, Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere!)

By @PaulFrancisTZ, a.k.a. Citizen Paul

LET US FACE IT AND BE REALISTIC! Whether we like it or not, it's time to admit that things have gone from REALLY BAD to REALLY WORSE under CCM rule for the past three administrations – Second Phase, under Retired President Ali Hassan Mwinyi; Third Phase, under Retired President Benjamin William Mkapa; and Fourth Phase under President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, and they are about to get EVEN WORSE, unless we WAKE UP and take charge of the situation.

We – the Swahili People – have a proverb: “Sikio la kufa halisikii dawa!” To non-KiSwahili speakers, this loosely translates as “No matter how hard you try to heal them, stupid, sick people just wont respond to medicine!” I said a “loose” translation – not an exact one!

My fellow citizens – and non-citizens alike – have all become witnesses to the amazing decay of moralities among our many societies; incest has become commonplace and is no longer widely scoffed at, as there are tales of fathers having children with their daughters; brothers having children with their sisters; mothers having children with their sons; and so forth! Corruption has become so rampant you will be told to “just pay the bribe” and save yourself from trouble... and bribes are no longer being asked for, they are expected, by those in places of authority and power, such as the Courts and Police Stations. In fact, when you REFUSE to pay a bribe YOU become the criminal, and you are subjected to the worst kind of “legal” treatment. They teach you a lesson you wont forget... you become conditioned to thinking “If I dont pay them a bribe, I'll land myself in jail, AGAIN, and for a crime I havent committed!”

The interpretation of the law in Tanzania has become quite funny, as it seems, even a Police Constable – who has the minimum and relevant knowledge of the law – can make sure you land in jail, simply by withholding vital information to you. I became witness to how people sometimes find themselves in a LOT of hot soup, simply because they didnt grease the palms of the corrupt – well, not all – police officers. It was a simple traffic case; some STUPID Ultimate Security watchman left a parking barrier at the DTB Mbezi Beach Branch parking area, in such a location that I could NEVER have avoided knocking it with my car. Instead of admitting being in error, the Ultimate Security guards in duty started laying the blame on me. The Branch Manager – a most kind and understanding person – was called, so were the Traffic Police. Procedure was followed because I told them let's just file the report so that my Insurance cover would pay for the damages to the broken glass panel, outside the DTB Mbezi Beach Branch, just by the entrance. I was making matters more SERIOUS, it seems. These days, when you COMPLY with the law, you are putting yourself at the MERCY of the corrupt police officers, who expect you to bribe them WITHOUT A FLINCH! And when you ignore – due to your ignorance, thinking that every police officer is an “angel”, which is a very naïve approach and perspective on your part – their unspoken demands for bribes, you will notice the raised eyebrows, which literally are the unspoken language of “Pay me you fool! Or you land your ass in jail!”

I nearly found myself in jail, save for the Angel – whose name shall remain withheld – of a Public Prosecutor, who – without even asking for a single cent from me – managed to work it out that the person who accompanied me (whose identity I will not reveal, also), was allowed to – within the scope of the law – be my surety. Being a traffic case, the Magistrate in charge did not pose any objection; following morning we paid the fine, but there is one very strange thing that still perplexes me!

DTB maintained, from the outset, that they did not wish to pursue the matter legally, as I did not intentionally cause damage to the Bank's property; it was an accident, and the decision was made at the DTB Headquarter level in Tanzania, that the matter should not be pursued in court. The Traffic Police officer in charge – Corporal Anna – of Kawe, insisted that the case be brought to the Court (Traffic Court in Kinondoni District is still being held at the Kinondoni District Court), on the count that, due to their busy schedule, DTB personnel did not inform, in due time, of the Bank's decision not to pursue the matter – as complainant.

I had gone to the Bank's Mbezi Beach Branch, earlier, to inform them of my decision to pay for the damages out of pocket, when the gentleman, Branch Manager (too kind to be messed up in useless legal wrangles, especially traffic cases) of the DTB informed me of the decision reached by headquarters. The treatment I received from DTB – NOT Ultimate Security – was so cordial, I was too impressed, and have decided to open two accounts with them; a personal and a corporate account! Hooray!

So, when Corporal Anna was contacted by the DTB Mbezi Breach Branch Manager, she made up so many excuses of (1) being in class, which makes me wonder what course(s) she is undertaking at the moment, and (2) being occupied, demanding that the Branch Manager pays her a visit at the Kawe Police Station. The Branch Manager didnt make it to the Kawe Police Station, so, instead, it was agreed that myself and a Bank's representative make our presence on the morning of the Court date, at the Kawe Police Station, in order that the case can be withdrawn at the Court. Not so, we found out. Once a case reaches the hands of the Court – this applies for criminal AND traffic cases – the defendants (or “accused” as is the lingua franca of legalese) MUST present sureties, or risk facing certain detention (being put under the custody of the prisons department) for failing to be bailed! THIS INFORMATION WAS WITHHELD DELIBERATELY by Corporal Anna, BECAUSE – I DARE SAY – she did not (as she did not expressly demand) receive any bribes from US (myself and/or the Bank).

  1. COME ON TANZANIA POLICE!!!! Look here! Let's be serious! These are the facts.
  2. Under advise from my legal counsel, I agreed to culpability and liability in order that my Insurance cover – as my vehicle is fully insured – could pay for the damages. In order for this to be done, I had to admit to being “negligent”, which in fact, I was NOT!
  3. Culpability – and this could have been proven, as I did have photographic evidence – was in the hands of the Ultimate Security guard who had wrongly placed the parking barrier, thus obstructing a part of the parking area, making it inevitable to be hit by any car attempting to park in that area. But I said, for the sake of not wasting time, let me just pay the damages and walk out of here, my hands clean. Sometimes we are forced to admit guilt simply to avoid trouble, but as it was proven to me, this wasnt – clearly – the best option. I STILL FACED CERTAIN JAIL TERM!
  4. Having paid the fine, Corporal Anna still demands that the Bank makes a written statement that they do not wish to be compensated by my Insurance cover. BUT THEY DIDNT WANT A COURT CASE IN THE FIRST PLACE, STUPID????!!!! This brings me to the next question: Isnt the case closed when someone who has admitted guilt, in a traffic case, over when the fine has been paid? Well, Corporal Anna DOES NOT AGREE! The written statement from the Bank, must be made, so that my Insurance cover is “indemnified” (Google this!) from liability, of having to pay those damages.
  5. Now, in conclusion, my Driving Licence and Vehicle Road Licence documents are still with Corporal Anna, who ALSO demands that when I visit her office – after the Bank has made that much coveted statement of withdrawal – I must present a COPY of the Government Receipt from the Court. Is that MY responsibility, or HER's? If I am to be fair and square, as that is part of her Standard Operating Procedures, it is the responsibility of the Investigating Officer to follow up ALL and ANY documents pertinent of all cases being handled by the Officer. The Government Receipt is ONE SUCH DOCUMENT, which I am NOT required to produce at the Kawe Police Station, however, Corporal Anna thinks otherwise!
  6. Let's hope that before this article makes it to print, Corporal Anna will have gotten the written statement from the Bank and a copy (I already lost the original receipt. Clumsy me!) of the Government Receipt from the Court, as so DEMANDED!

While this may seem to be a single-handed attack on Police Corporal Anna, it is not, I assure you. I am stating facts. There was an accident, on April 26, 2014, which was a public holiday – Union Day – that comprised of my car, T113BFN, Green Toyota RAV4, accidentally knocking a parking barrier, which was improperly placed at the parking area of the DTB Mbezi Beach Branch. This happened around 3 pm. I was at the Bank trying to withdraw money sent to me via Western Union from a client in the UK. DTB is an Agent of Western Union. The rest of the story has already been told, but it is a SAD, SAD, SAD story!

Was there need for this case to go to court? Wasnt the first – as a sworn Police Officer, who took an oath to protect citizens and their property – duty of Police Corporal Anna to ensure that this case is solved amicably? WHY must all cases that fall into her hands go to the Court? No person had been injured in the accident, and the damage to the property was negligible – ONLY Tanzanian Shillings Fifty Thousand! Doesnt this want you to think that Police Corporal Anna was strongly expecting to be bribed, and when she saw that we would not officially or unofficially comply with her “unspoken” demands (because corruption is now an INSTITUTION!), she became IRATE and made sure that I would see the inside of the prison cell, maybe Keko or Segerea?

WHY do I assume this? Listen, I have been in similar situations before, when Police Officers DELIBERATELY refuse to inform suspects of their right to be bailed at Court. Not every one of us knows that when our cases are brought – YES! Even a Traffic Case???? - to the Court, we must be prepared to secure sureties so that we must be bailed. And – you wont believe this! - the procedure is that, (1) our sureties must sign a bond of Tanzanian Shillings Five Hundred Thousand!!, (2) and they must be TWO sureties, each with two letters; one from the Local Government and one from their Employer! FOR A TRAFFIC CASE!

I am sorry but THIS is INDEED the truth that must be told!

Corporal Anna? Have I done you justice? These are the facts! I paid the fine! Dont worry. You will have received the documents you require when this goes to print. I am so glad that I DIDNT pay anyone NOT A CENT in a bribe! Thank you Jesus! Thank you!

Vijana Rombo na raia wa nchi jirani wabaka wanawake wakijishughulisha na kilimo mashambani

WANANCHI wa Kijiji cha Ushiri Wilayani Rombo mkoani Kilimanjaro, wameliomba Jeshi la Polisi mkoani humo, kukomesha vitendo vya unyanyasaji wa kijinsia vikiwemo vya ubakaji vinavyofanywa na vijana wakiwemo raia wa nchi jirani, dhidi ya wanawake wanapokuwa mashambani katika ukanda wa chini wa Wilaya hiyo, inaripoti Fikra Pevu.

Wananchi hao wametoa ombi hilo leo Mei 28, 2014 wakiwa katika uzinduzi wa kikundi cha Askari wa ulinzi shirikishi wa Polisi wa Kijiji hicho, kufuatia ongezeko la vitendo vya kihalifu vinavyofanywa na baadhi ya watu wasiofahamika na kuwafanya waishi kwa hofu na kuacha mali zao zikiharibika mashambani.

Mtendaji wa Kata ya Ushiri Ikuini, Benard Njau, amesema uanzishwaji wa vikundi hivyo unatokana na walinzi wa kikundi cha ‘mtambo’ kushindwa kudhibiti uhalifu huo pamoja na uhalifu wa wizi wa mifugo, uvutaji bangi na ulevi wa kupindukia.

Utafiti wa Kitaifa wa Afya uliofanywa mwaka 2010 umeonyesha kuwa asilimia 42 ya wanawake na watoto wanaofanyiwa vitendo vya ukatili wa kijinsia mkoa wa Kilimanjaro ikiwa nafasi ya sita kwa kuwa na asilimia hiyo ambayo ni zaidi na kiwango cha ukatili huo kwa nchi nzima.
