"If you're stupid enough to fall for it, you deserve it." Man tells how he got conned by a 'woman' thru social media

The adage “since men learned to shoot without missing, birds have learned to fly without perching” has never made sense as it does today, with social media users coming up with new tricks of getting an extra buck.

In recent times, men have become slippery and unpredictable when it comes to relationships, and with the advent of money first and love later, more men find it burdensome to involve themselves in love affairs.

It is with this in mind that more and more women look for alternative ways to slip into the well protected wallets of sometimes stingy men, with promises of wild love and passion.

In a survey conducted by The Daily News (Tanzania), it has been established that social media users, especially women, have been coming up with ingenious ways of getting money by luring unsuspecting men into their snares.

The flooding into the market of social media like Facebook, Twitter, Skype, WhatsApp, Badoo and

TAARIFA KWA VYOMBO VYA HABARI

30 Agosti 2014

Ndugu waandishi wa habari,

Natumaini mna taarifa kwamba tangu Ijumaa iliyopita, nimefungua shauri Mahakama Kuu kanda ya Dar es Salaam, kupinga kinachofanywa na Bunge Maalum la Katiba. Shauri hilo, limesajili kwa Na.28 la mwaka 2014.

Katika kesi hiyo, nimeomba Mahakama Kuu itoe tafsiri sahihi juu ya mamlaka ya Bunge Maalum la Katiba, chini ya kifungu cha 25 (1) na (2) cha Sheria ya Mabadiliko ya Katiba, Sura ya 83 ya mwaka 2011.

Aidha, nimewasilisha maombi madogo nikiomba Mahakama kutoa zuio la muda la kusimamisha Bunge Maalum la Katiba, wakati tukisubiri uamuzi wa kesi ya msingi. Maombi ya zuio yamepangwa kutajwa tarehe 4 Septemba na kesi ya msingi itatajwa 15 Septemba 2014.

Ndugu waandishi wa habari,

Tangu kuripotiwa kufunguliwa kwa shauri hili mahakamani, yapo mengi yaliyosemwa. Wapo walionipongeza na kunifariji. Wapo walionitia moyo na kuniomba nisirudi nyuma. Wapo walionidhihaki na kunikatisha tamaa. Wapo walionitisha.

Lakini wapo walioahidi kuniombea kwa Mwenyezi Mungu ili jambo hili kubwa nililolifanya kwa maslahi ya

Usahihishaji mpya wa mitihani ya Taifa Kidato cha IV na VI

USAHIHISHAJI mpya wa mitihani ya Taifa kwa kidato cha nne na sita, unaoendana na utaratibu mpya wa upangaji wa ufaulu na madaraja, unatarajiwa kuanza kutumika katika mtihani wa majaribio wa kidato cha nne mwaka huu nchini kote, na kufuatiwa na mitihani yote ya kidato cha nne na sita.

Akitangaza mabadiliko hayo muhimu jana Dar es Salaam, Katibu Mtendaji wa Baraza la Mitihani (NECTA), Dk Charles Msonde, alisema tayari maelekezo kuhusu mabadiliko hayo, yameshatolewa kwa wakuu wa shule za sekondari nchini.

Baadhi ya faida ya mabadiliko hayo kwa mujibu wa Dk Msonde, ni pamoja na kuondoa ukadiriaji wa alama za ufaulu, uliokuwa ukitumiwa awali, kuweka uwazi katika usahihishaji na kumwezesha mwanafunzi kukokotoa ufaulu wake hata kabla ya matokeo na hata mwalimu kukotoa ufaulu wa wanafunzi wake kabla hata ya matokeo.

Kwa mujibu wa Dk Msonde, mwalimu na mwanafunzi wataweza kukokotoa alama za ufaulu, kwa kuwa

Tanzania is now Kenya’s largest E.Africa market

Uganda has traditionally been Kenya’s top trading partner in East Africa, but latest data from the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) ranked the country third, with Tanzania coming second as a result of the ongoing elimination of non-tariff barriers and increasing local production in Uganda of goods that were previously imported.

The report showed that the US imported goods from Kenya worth Ksh3.7 billion ($41.8 million) in June, followed by Tanzania at Ksh2.8 billion ($31.6 million) and Uganda at Ksh2.5 billion ($28.3 million).

“The EAC integration means that Tanzania has to apply tariffs to products from the Southern Africa Development Community, while Kenyan goods are basically entering a domestic market,” said Sam Watasa, lead advisor on non-tariff barriers at Uganda’s Ministry of Trade.

Although it is difficult to project future trends based on a month’s data, Kenyan exports to Uganda have declined by almost half since November last year, at Ksh4.5 billion ($51 million), a trend analysts attributed to the growth of the manufacturing sector in Uganda. [more at The East African]

Dogo achojoa nguo zote alipofika kileleni mlima Kilimanjaro


Will you do anything for charity? 
Even if it means stripping naked in freezing temperatures atop Africa's highest peak?

That's exactly what cheeky Ben Boleyn did when he reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro after enduring treacherous conditions during a nine-day charity climb. Ben said:
'Once I was with the climb group I mentioned it in conversation and it just snowballed after that.
Everyone kept talking about it and one climber bet me 500 Tanzanian shillings, which is about 18p, that I wouldn't do it.
'When we got to the top I had to do it so just thought why not, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
'My parents were shocked at first but people seem to have donated more because of it, which is great. It is quite unique.
'I would do it again at other landmarks. I want to go to Machu Picchu next so maybe I will strip there too.'

He added: 
'It was between -10C and -12C but it didn't feel that cold, probably because of the adrenaline and we had just walked for six hours so I was already warm.'

Ben scaled the mountain with seven other climbers after he spent four weeks volunteering at a hospital in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Now that the climb is over, Ben is taking a gap year and hopes to study medicine at a university abroad before training to become a doctor. He recently finished his A-Levels at King Edward VI College in Stourbridge, where he got an A in chemistry, an A in human biology and a B in maths with statistics.
