UKAWA haitambui Kamati Maalum ya Mashauriano

Siku moja baada ya Mwenyekiti wa Bunge Maalum la Katiba, Mhe. Waziri, Samuel Sitta na Makamu wake, Mhe. Samia Suluhu kutoa taarifa ya kuteuliwa kwa Wajumbe Maalum 30 wa Kamati ya Mashauriano ya Bunge hilo, jana (Julai 15, 2014) viongozi wa wanaounda Umoja wa Katiba ya Wananchi (UKAWA) walisema hawatashiriki katika mashauriano hayo.

Dk Wilibrod Slaa ambaye ni Katibu Mkuu wa Chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (CHADEMA) ambacho ni miongoni mwa vyama vinavyounda UKAWA, amesema kuwa hawapo tayari kushiriki kutokana na kukosekana uhalali wa Mwenyekiti kuunda Kamati hiyo:
"Kama watu wetu wapo nje ya Bunge, wewe unaundaje tena Kamati ya watu ambao hawako Bungeni, hawapo chini ya mamlaka yako?... Samuel Sitta ana mandate gani kuunda kamati ya maridhiano wakati anajua watu hawa wote walitoka nje? Anajuaje kwamba watahudhuria kikao cha Kamati wakati hawahudhurii Bunge? Kama wamesusia Bunge na wanasema hawatarudi, uafikiri watahudhuria leo kikao cha Kamati? Kamati iko kama Bunge halina mamlaka..." 
alisema Dk Slaa.

Borrowers across the continent are looking to tap international capital markets following successful bond sales by African countries.

A long-awaited rating for Tanzania is not likely to be assigned any time soon, however, S&P's Konrad Reuss told a news briefing in London.
