Ambassador to Tanzania says Chinese traders' and companies' behavior in Africa tarnish China's reputation

The "bad habits" of Chinese traders and companies were among the main challenges to the nation's image in Africa, according to ambassador to Tanzania, Lu Youqing.

In an interview published in yesterday's (July 13th, 2014) Southern Metropolis News, Lu also flagged his concerns about the quality of some infrastructure projects in nearby African countries that were built by Chinese contractors at questionably low prices.
"Tanzania hosts ambassadors from about 70 countries, but none of them needs to constantly worry like us about consular protection issues," 
Lu said in response to a question about alleged police harassment and robberies targeting Chinese in Africa.
"Our people just cannot shake their bad habits. When they come to Africa, they are not united and engage in infighting like usual," 
Lu said, referring to competition among Chinese companies over contracts and bribes offered to Tanzanian officials to lobby on their behalf. He said the embassy became tense every

Kamati ya taasisi inayotuhumiwa kuua elimu nchini yavunjwa

KILIO cha muda mrefu kuhusu kuporomoka kwa elimu nchini kimesikika kwa Serikali kuamua kuivunja Kamati ya Udhibiti Ubora wa Vitabu vya kiada na ziada nchini (EMAC).

EMAC imekuwa ikilalamikiwa kuwa moja kati ya vyanzo vya kuingiza vitabu duni vya kiada na ziada katika mfumo wa elimu nchini, vikiwa chini ya viwango na makosa mengi.

Raia Tanzania linataarifa kuwa majukumu ya kamati hiyo iliyokuwa chini ya Wizara ya Elimu na Mafunzo ya Ufundi (WEMU), yamehamishiwa Taasisi ya Elimu Tanzania (TIE) tangu Januari mwaka huu.

EMAC, iliyoanza kazi takriban miaka 20 iliyopita, ilikuwa ikishutumiwa na wadau wa elimu kwa kupokea rushwa na kupitisha vitabu vya wachapishaji mbalimbali vyenye makosa na kuvisambaza katika shule za msingi, sekondari na vyuo vya ualimu nchini.

Kaimu Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa TIE, Dk. Leonard Akwilapo, alikiri taasisi yake kupokea majukumu ya EMAC na kwamba kwa sasa upitishaji wa vitabu umesitishwa kupisha uandaaji wa mwongozo mpya.
“Hakuna vitabu vilivyopitishwa tangu EMAC ilipovunjwa na TIE kupewa kazi hiyo. Wachapishaji wakileta vitabu, tunavipokea na kuwapa fomu maalumu yenye maelekezo kuwaeleza kuwa utaratibu wa awali hautakuwepo, na kwamba watapewa utaratibu mpya. Hatupokea fedha za gharama za upitishwaji wa vitabu hivyo,” 
alisema Dk. Akwilapo.

Ofisa Masoko wa Dar es Salaam University Press, wachapishaji wa vitabu, Leticia Kaijage, alikiri

[audio] Serikali ya Tanzania yalaani mauaji huko Gaza

Serikali ya Tanzania kuitia Waziri wa Mambo ya Nchi za Nje wa Tanzania, Bernard Membe imelaani mauaji yanayofanywa na watawala wa Israel dhidi ya wakazi wasio na ulinzi wa Ukanda wa Gaza, huko Palestina. 

Membe amesema Serikali ameitaka jamii ya Kimataifa hususan Umoja wa Mataifa kuchukua hatua za haraka kuzuia mauaji hayo huku ikikosoa pia kimya cha walimwengu. 

Hiyo ni kauli ya kwanza kutolewa na nchi wanachama wa Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki, tangu kulipoanza mashambulizi hayo siku nane zilizopita.

Kwa maelezo zaidi kuhusu tamko la Tanzania kuhusu kadhia hiyo, sikiliza ripoti ya mwandishi wa Idhaa ya Kiswahili ya Radio Tehran, Hamis Dambaya, kutoka Dar es Salaam.

Fagio lawafuata Wamachinga wauza bidhaa wakati wa foleni

Kutokana na operesheni safisha jiji inayoendelea katika maeneo mbalimbali ya jiji la Dar es Salaam, Mkurugenzi wa jiji hilo, Wilson Kabwe amewataka wafanyabiashara wadogo (wamachinga) wanaouza bidhaa kwenye magari wakati wa foleni watafute maeneo rasmi.

Ameliambia gazeti la Tanzania Daima mwishoni mwa wiki kuwa wamefikia hatua hiyo kwa sababu hivi sasa operesheni hiyo inalenga la kuwaondoa wafanyabiashara wote katika maeneo yasiyo rasmi.
