Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete faces political obstacles in the Constituent Assembly and any other legislation presented may undergo long debates as members of parliament posture for the presidential vote, Ahmed Salim, a senior associate for the New York-based risk adviser, said in a note to clients. The delay is “potentially embarrassing” after Kikwete set the self-imposed deadline, he said.

“It’s basically a ripple effect from the constitutional debate” that will lengthen the process of any

MBUNGE wa Kasulu Mjini, Moses Machali, anatuhumiwa kumpiga baba yake mzazi, Joseph Machali na kumfukuza nyumbani kwake, akidai ni mlevi.

Tujisahihishe

Watanzania tuna sifa ya kuwa waoga sana kuwasahihisha wenzetu wanapokosea. Naomba kuwa tofauti kwa leo. Na ni kwa nia nzuri tu.

Kombe la Dunia la FIFA limeisha hivi karibuni na nilisikia (kwenye redio na runinga) na kuona kwenye maandishi, haswa kwenye mitandao ya jamii, matumizi yasiyo sahihi ya majina ya baadhi ya timu zilizoshiriki kwenye mashindano hayo.
