Mwanamama mweusi aliyeendesha kesi ya Pistorius ana historia ya kutia moyo kama ya mwanariadha huyo mlemavu.

Kesi mbili zimemalizika jijini Johannesbugh, Afrika ya Kusini: moja, ya wazi na ambayo dunia nzima ilikuwa ikiifuatilia, ya mwanariadha mlemavu, Oscar Pistorius, aliyekuwa kizimbani kwa kosa la kumpiga risasi mpenzi wake, mrembo Reena Steenkamp, na kumuua, na ya pili ni dhidi ya mwanamke mweusi mwenye miaka 66, Jaji Thokozile Masipa, aliyekuwa na dhamana ya kutoa hukumu katika kesi hiyo iliyovuta hisia za wengi duniani.

Yaliyojiri kwa upande wa Pistorius sote twayafahamu, lakini wengi hawafahamu kuhusu mwanamama Masipa, ambaye licha ya kuangaliwa kwa jicho 'kali' na familia za mwanariadha huyo na ya marehemu Reena, macho ya dunia yaliyokuwa yakifuatilia kesi hiyo nayo yalielekezwa kwake.

Ile kuwa mtu mweusi, achilia mbali uanamke wake, ilikuwa ni mtihani tosha katika nchi ambayo licha

Wanawake vaeni nguo sasa, mmeshavua vya kutosha



MOJA ya sifa ya mwandishi ni kusoma, na katika kusoma huko na kupekua pekua hapa na pale unaweza kujifunza na kupata la kuandika kupitia maandiko ya watu wengine na kutoa elimu kwa umma. Leo nimepita pita katika kurasa za marafiki zangu huko katika uso wa kitabu ‘Facebook nikakutana na nasaha ya ndugu yangu Victory Richard, juu ya kuwasihi wanawake kwamba sasa wavae nguo.

Ndugu yangu yule amechoshwa na tabia za dada zetu, wake zetu na hata mama zetu wakati mwingine wanavyotembea uchi, ndio! utavaaje nguo fupiii au skintight halafu useme umevaa nguo?. Binafsi naomba radhi kama nitakuwa nimemkwaza mtu hasa hao mama zetu, Ah! Lakini potelea mbali Anko Kidevu sijali kitu si wamejitakia.

Hivi akina mama na dada zetu kweli jamani katika yooote ambayo mnalilia usawa na sisi tunakubali kuwa sawa, hili la kutembea uchi au kuvaa mavazi nusu uchi mbona mnapitiliza?

Ndio mmepitiliza Anko nimebaini kuwa mmetupita maana sisi tukivaa sana ni kaptura au bichkoma na kawosh au singlendi lakini sasa naona mmepita katika sketi na sasa mna vimini na kuacha vifua wazi.

Ni nani awezaye kuona aibu yenu zaidi yangu mimi Anko Kidevu na kaka yenu Victor Richard, tafadhalini tunawasihi, hebu vaeni nguo sasa na jamii itawaheshimu maana hakuna heshima kwa mwanamke hata kidogo. Na kama mnahisi mnaheshimika kwa hilo ni bure kabisa. Bofya hapa kusoma zaidi kwenye blog ya Father Kidevu.

Wasifu wa Jaji Thokozile Matilda Masipa aliyetoa hukumu ya Oscar Pistorious

Jaji Thokozile Matilda Masipa aliyetoa hukumu ya Oscar Pistorious

Akiwa mahakamani, ambako amekuwa akisikiliza kesi ya mwanariadha mlemavu Oscar Pistorious tangu marchi, jaji Thokozile Masipa amekuwa akionekana kama mtu ambaye fikra zake ziko mbali, mtulivu na mtu anayetazama mambo kwa undani.

Akiwa amevalia miwani, jaji huyu hajizuii kuzungumza mengi na mara nyingi hutabasamu tu.

Tangu mwanzo wa kesi hii, wakosoaji wake ambao wengi ni wanaume, wamekuwa wakinadi kuwa kujitenga kwake ni ishara kuwa hana ufahamu wa kutosha au kutishwa na vyombo vya ahabari ambavyo vimekuwa vikitangaza vikao vya kesi hiyo moja kwa moja.

Wakili mmoja nchini afrika kusini Jeremy Gauntlett alinukuliwa akisema kuwa jaji Masipa ana wasiwasi

NO! You won't catch Ebola from a giraffe in Tanzania

(Image: wikia.nocookie.net)

Korean Air has stopped all flights to Kenya. International travelers are canceling safaris. And parents of some students traveling to South Africa are nervous.

Why? Ebola.

The virus has dominated headlines for several months — and for good reason. The current outbreak is the worst in history, with more than 3,700 reported cases and 1,800 deaths as of Aug. 31.

The virus has also wreaked havoc on Africa's tourism industry.

"A lot of safari sites are running at 50 or 60 percent capacity right now, in the high season," said Paul Campbell of Travel Butlers, a U.K.-based company specializing in safaris. "Normally, these places are

UN Secretary General's statement on South-South cooperation

THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
--
MESSAGE ON THE UNITED NATIONS DAY OF SOUTH-SOUTH COOPERATION
12 September 2014

This year’s United Nations Day for South-South Cooperation comes as the international community is transitioning to a post-2015 development agenda centred on shared prosperity and environmental sustainability.

Despite remarkable advances in achieving the Millennium Development Goals, progress across the South has been uneven. Extreme poverty, rampant inequality, malnutrition and vulnerability to climate and weather-related shocks persist.

According to the UN Multidimensional Poverty Index, 2.2 billion people still live in abject  poverty. About 1.4 billion people, the majority in the South, still have no reliable electricity, 900 million lack access to

Cruz walks out after pro-Israel comments draw boos

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said he walked out of a speech Wednesday night to a Christian organization after some audience members booed his comments in support of Israel and the Jewish people.

At the "In Defense of Christians" gala dinner, the Texas senator said he told the gathering that those who hate Israel also hate the United States and those who hate the Jewish people also hate Christians. He said that hatred of Israel and Jews runs counter to the teachings of Christ.

That elicited boos from a small but vocal minority. Cruz insisted that Christians in the Middle East have no

Ashikiliwa na Maafisa Usalama kwa kuvuka uzio wa Ikulu

Maafisa Usalama nchini Marekani wanamshikilia mwanaume mmoja aliyeruka uzio wa Ikulu ya nchi hiyo upande wa Kaskazini, na kuonekana akielekea upande wa makazi ya Rais.

Maafisa wakiwa na bunduki zao tayari kwa kufyatua walimwamuru mwanaume huyo alale chini. Mtu huyo alitii amri ya askari na kwa sasa anashikiliwa.

Tukio hilo limefanyika siku ambayo Marekani ilikumbuka mashambulizi ya majengo yake Septemba 11, 2001.

Maafisa Usalama wanachukulia kwa uzito mtu yeyote anayeruka uzio ama mifuko inayorushwa ndani ya uzio kwani ni mojawapo ya njia ya kufanya jambo baya.

"Tusije tukachanganya uraia wa nchi mbili na uhalifu" - Ofisa Uhamiaji

Ofisa mstaafu katika Idara ya Uhamiaji, Zahoro Lyasuka, ameliomba Bunge Maalum la Katiba kuingiza kipengele kinachoruhusu uraia pacha kwenye Katiba ijayo ili kuwasaidia Watanzania waishio nje ya nchi.

Akizungumza na NIPASHE, Lyasuka ambaye ni mtaalam wa ukaguzi Uhamiaji, alisema haoni uhusiano baina ya uzalendo, usalama wa Taifa na uraia wa nchi mbili.

Alisema hata hapa nchini wapo raia (viongozi), wasio na uraia wa nchi mbili, lakini wameliingiza Taifa kwenye hasara kubwa. Alisema uhalifu ni kosa kama makosa mengine na kuhoji:
“Ukizungumzia masuala ya kuhatarisha usalama; ubalozi wa Marekani ulilipuliwa mwaka 1998, je, aliyepiga mabomu alikuwa na uraia wa nchi mbili?”
“Tusije tukachanganya uraia wa nchi mbili na uhalifu, hivi ni vitu viwili tofauti” ... “Kusema uraia wa nchi utahatarisha usalama wa nchi siyo kweli. Uzalendo wa mtu upo moyoni mwa mtu bila kujali ana uraia wa nchi ngapi. Mtu anaweza akawa hapa Dar es Salaam au kijijini na akahatarisha usalama.”
Alisema kuhatarisha usalama ni kosa kisheria na kwamba mtu anayefanya hivyo anapaswa
