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.


Given Edward, the founder of the myElimu Project, says the project that will turn to students advantage when it comes to using the internet. The project is known as "MyElimu Project" and it is a

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

Jiji la Arusha lavunja nyumba zaidi ya 200 - “Operesheni Mongela”



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.
