[audio] Tundu Lissu ajibu tuhuma za Dk Slaa

Akijibu tuhuma za Dk. Slaa, mwansheria wa CHADEMA, Tundu Lissu anasema anashanga kwamba kiongozi huyo wa zamani anadai hakubaliani na uteuzi wa mgombea wao kwa ajili ya kiti cha rais wakati yeye ndiye aliyepanga na kumleta Lowassa katika chama hicho.

Vyama vya siasa vinavyoshiriki uchaguzi mkuu wa mwaka huu hivi sasa vipo kwenye kampeni katika maeneo mbalimbali nchini baada ya baadhi kufanya uzinduzi rasmi jijini Dar es Salaam.

Letter by Pope Francis' "I have decided" Priests forgive women who had abortions

Pope Francis

To My Venerable Brother
Archbishop Rino Fisichella
President of the Pontifical Council
for the Promotion of the New Evangelization

With the approach of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy I would like to focus on several points which I believe require attention to enable the celebration of the Holy Year to be for all believers a true moment of encounter with the mercy of God. It is indeed my wish that the Jubilee be a living experience of the closeness of the Father, whose tenderness is almost tangible, so that the faith of every believer may be strengthened and thus testimony to it be ever more effective.

My thought first of all goes to all the faithful who, whether in individual Dioceses or as pilgrims to Rome, will experience the grace of the Jubilee. I wish that the Jubilee Indulgence may reach each one as a genuine experience of God’s mercy, which comes to meet each person in the Face of the Father who welcomes and forgives, forgetting completely the sin committed. To experience and obtain the Indulgence, the faithful are called to make a brief pilgrimage to the Holy Door, open in every Cathedral or in the churches designated by the Diocesan Bishop, and in the four Papal Basilicas in Rome, as a sign of the deep desire for true conversion. Likewise, I dispose that the Indulgence may be obtained in the Shrines in which the Door of Mercy is open and in the churches which traditionally are identified as Jubilee Churches. It is important that this moment be linked, first and foremost, to the Sacrament of Reconciliation and to the celebration of the Holy Eucharist with a reflection on mercy. It will be necessary to accompany these celebrations with the profession of faith and with prayer for me and for the intentions that I bear in my heart for the good of the Church and of the entire world.

Additionally, I am thinking of those for whom, for various reasons, it will be impossible to enter the Holy Door, particularly the sick and people who are elderly and alone, often confined to the home. For them it will be of great help to live their sickness and suffering as an experience of closeness to the Lord who in the mystery of his Passion, death and Resurrection indicates the royal road which gives meaning to pain and loneliness. Living with faith and joyful hope this moment of trial, receiving communion or attending Holy Mass and community prayer, even through the various means of communication, will be for them the means of obtaining the Jubilee Indulgence. My thoughts also turn to those incarcerated, whose freedom is limited. The Jubilee Year has always constituted an opportunity for great amnesty, which is intended to include the many people who, despite deserving punishment, have become conscious of the injustice they worked and sincerely wish to re-enter society and make their honest contribution to it. May they all be touched in a tangible way by the mercy of the Father who wants to be close to those who have the greatest need of his forgiveness. They may obtain the Indulgence in the chapels of the prisons. May the gesture of directing their thought and prayer to the Father each time they cross the threshold of their cell signify for them their passage through the Holy Door, because the mercy of God is able to transform hearts, and is also able to transform bars into an experience of freedom.

I have asked the Church in this Jubilee Year to rediscover the richness encompassed by the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. The experience of mercy, indeed, becomes visible in the witness of concrete signs as Jesus himself taught us. Each time that one of the faithful personally performs one or more of these actions, he or she shall surely obtain the Jubilee Indulgence. Hence the commitment to live by mercy so as to obtain the grace of complete and exhaustive forgiveness by the power of the love of the Father who excludes no one. The Jubilee Indulgence is thus full, the fruit of the very event which is to be celebrated and experienced with faith, hope and charity.

Furthermore, the Jubilee Indulgence can also be obtained for the deceased. We are bound to them by the witness of faith and charity that they have left us. Thus, as we remember them in the Eucharistic celebration, thus we can, in the great mystery of the Communion of Saints, pray for them, that the merciful Face of the Father free them of every remnant of fault and strongly embrace them in the unending beatitude.

One of the serious problems of our time is clearly the changed relationship with respect to life. A widespread and insensitive mentality has led to the loss of the proper personal and social sensitivity to welcome new life. The tragedy of abortion is experienced by some with a superficial awareness, as if not realizing the extreme harm that such an act entails. Many others, on the other hand, although experiencing this moment as a defeat, believe that they have no other option. I think in particular of all the women who have resorted to abortion. I am well aware of the pressure that has led them to this decision. I know that it is an existential and moral ordeal. I have met so many women who bear in their heart the scar of this agonizing and painful decision. What has happened is profoundly unjust; yet only understanding the truth of it can enable one not to lose hope. The forgiveness of God cannot be denied to one who has repented, especially when that person approaches the Sacrament of Confession with a sincere heart in order to obtain reconciliation with the Father. For this reason too, I have decided, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, to concede to all priests for the Jubilee Year the discretion to absolve of the sin of abortion those who have procured it and who, with contrite heart, seek forgiveness for it. May priests fulfil this great task by expressing words of genuine welcome combined with a reflection that explains the gravity of the sin committed, besides indicating a path of authentic conversion by which to obtain the true and generous forgiveness of the Father who renews all with his presence.

A final consideration concerns those faithful who for various reasons choose to attend churches officiated by priests of the Fraternity of St Pius X. This Jubilee Year of Mercy excludes no one. From various quarters, several Brother Bishops have told me of their good faith and sacramental practice, combined however with an uneasy situation from the pastoral standpoint. I trust that in the near future solutions may be found to recover full communion with the priests and superiors of the Fraternity. In the meantime, motivated by the need to respond to the good of these faithful, through my own disposition, I establish that those who during the Holy Year of Mercy approach these priests of the Fraternity of St Pius X to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation shall validly and licitly receive the absolution of their sins.

Trusting in the intercession of the Mother of Mercy, I entrust the preparations for this Extraordinary Jubilee Year to her protection.

Taylor Swift's new song "Wildest Dreams" is dreaming of a very White Africa

Here are some facts for Swift and her team: Colonialism was neither romantic nor beautiful. It was exploitative and brutal. The legacy of colonialism still lives quite loudly to this day. Scholars have argued that poor economic performance, weak property rights and tribal tensions across the continent can be traced to colonial strategies. So can other woes. In a place full of devastation and lawlessness, diseases spreads like wildfire, conflict breaks out and dictators grab power.

Swift's "Wildest Dreams" are a visual representation of what the Kenyan author Binyavanga Wainaina writes about in his Granta Magazine essay, "How to Write About Africa."

Katuni leo... "Adiselema Silaha selema!"

OK, here comes Nextbit's Robin - The Smarter Smartphone

Serikali kuwafungisha ndoa watakaokutwa pamoja baada ya saa 3 usiku

Serikali ya mkoa wa West Java nchini Indonesia imeweka sheria mpya ya kuwafungisha ndoa watu watakaokutwa pamoja faraghani baada ya saa tatu usiku.

Walinzi wa usalama watatekeleza hatua hiyo ili kuepukana na visa vya ngono miongoni mwa vijana kabla ya kufunga ndoa.

Mkuu wa mji wa Purwakarta Dedi Mulyadi, akihutubia wakazi 200 wa mji katika mkutano wa baraza uliofanyika siku ya Jumatatu na kutangaza rasmi sheria hiyo mpya, alibainisha azma yake ya kutaka kudumisha utamaduni na maadili miongoni mwa vijana. Alitahadharisha kuadhibiwa kwa watu watakaokiuka sheria hiyo.

Machifu wa vijiji waliunga mkono sheria hiyo huku mmoja wao akifahamisha kuwahi kutekeleza hatua hiyo hapo awali.

Atakayelifanya Taifa hili lijitegemee ndiye mgombea wangu

Kwa nini ni muhimu kwa taifa kujitegemea na ina maana gani taifa kujitegemea ?. Hili ni swalii muhimu kujiuliza kama taifa. Je ni jambo lenye thamani kwetu ama hapana?. Siku za hivi karibuni jamii yetu pamoja na viongozi wetu wamelitupa pembeni hili jambo. Ambalo ni muhimu sana kwa uhuru wetu.

Ni muhimu kujua kujitegemea kunaanza katika fikra. Hili ni jambo la msingi sana bila kujitegemea kifikra kujitegemea kwingine ni kugumu mno. Kwahiyo hatua ya kwanza kwa taifa hili kuendelea ni kwa watu wetu kujitegemea kifikra. Hatua ya pili ni kufanya kazi. Ukiwa unazoea kuletewa kamwe hautaweza kujitegemea. Na kama hautoweza kujitegemea kujitawala kwako itakuwa ngumu.

Kujitegemea ina maana ya kwamba unajitawala na unakuwa na uwezo wa kuzalisha na kutosheleza mahitaji yako bila kuhitaji mtu mwingine hatua ya kwanza ya huku kujitegemea ni fikra, ni kujikomboa kifikra. Kujiita unajitawala wakati bado ni tegemezi ni kutokuwa na ufahamu wa kutosha. Kama huwezi kufanya chochote mwenyewe hujajitawala. Kama budget yako iwe nyumbani kwako au katika serikali inategemea watu wa nje bado hujajitawala unatawaliwa. Watu wanaokufadhili wana nguvu dhidi yako. Kujitegemea maana yake ni kuwa na nguvu ya kufanya mambo yako mwenyewe bila kuhitaji nguvu kutoka nje.

Angalia mfano wa vikinda vya ndege vinavyopanua na kulishwa na mama yao huo ndio mfano wa mtu au nchi ambayo haijajitegemea na inahitaji misaada kujiendesha. Vikinda vya ndege havijiwezi kiakili wala kimwili ndio maana vinasaidiwa. Lakini kuendelea kusaidiwa hadi unapokuwa mkubwa ni ugonjwa. Nchi yetu tuko na uhuru kwa miaka hamsini sasa miaka hii ni umri wa mtu mzima.

Kuendelea kutegemea wafadhili ni ulemavu kama vile ambavyo mtu mzima anayepaswa kujitegemea kuendelea kuwalilia wazazi kwa mahitaji yake. Vikinda vinapokua na kupata mbawa hujitegemea na kuruka angani kutafuta chakula hawategemei tena wazazi wao. Huu ugonjwa tulio nao ni mbaya sana haufai kwa taifa letu unapaswa kupingwa kwa nguvu zote. Ni lazima tuwa inspire watu wetu kufanya kazi ili tujitegemee. Ili tuweze kuendesha mambo yetu vyema ni lazima tufikiri na ni lazima tufanye kazi. Hatuwezi kuwa sovereign country kama tunategemea wafadhili. Malengo yetu kama taifa iwe ni lazima tujitegemee katika kila nyanja na hili linawezekana kama tukijipanga. Ni lazima tuzalishe mali zetu wenyewe. Iwe silaha au kitu kingine chochote kile na asilimia kidogo sana vinunuliwe. Tunaweza hili kama tutawekeza akili zetu na nguvu zetu.

Leo Jioni nimesikia mgombea wa uraisi kupitia CCM ndugu magufuri akiongea alinishangaza sana kwa fikra alizonazo. Yeye ni daktari mimi sio daktari. Kauli aliyotoa alinisikitisha sana. Nilifikiri angekuwa na fikra nzuri kwasababu ameenda shule. Angekuwa na mtizamo tofauti na chanya kwa taifa hili. Lakini alionyesha udhaifu wa fikra. Na kwa jambo hili elimu yake ameitia mashaka . Mtu mwenye elimu lazima awe na uwezo wa kuchanganua mambo na kufanya chaguzi zenye manufaa iwe kwake au kwa taifa. Kwa jambo hili ilikuwa ni kwa taifa. Kwahiyo ilimbidi kufikiri sawasawa kwasababu maamuzi atakayofanya yataathiri taifa kwa ujumla. Ndugu magufuri anataka kulilemaza taifa.

Alisema nini ndugu yetu magufuri? Ndugu yetu magufuri anatuambia ; tuichague CCM kwasababu wafadhili wanaiamini bado. hii kauli ina maana gani? Namuomba magufuri atuambie! Anataka kuendelea kulifanya taifa hili zezeta linaloendelea kutegemea misaada kila siku na lisilo jiweza? Mimi nilifikiri atakuja na mipango ya kufanya taifa hili lijitegemee. Angekuja na mipango hiyo ningemsupport kama mgombea bora wa kizazi hiki. Hana mipango hiyo ni wale wale wanaodumaza taifa hili linalohitaji ukombozi. Tunahitaji taifa letu na watu wetu wajitegemee. Mgombea ambaye atahubiri kulifanya taifa hili lijetegemee ni mgombea wangu na sijaona miongoni mwa waliopo.

Pamoja na kwamba tunahitajika kwa dhati kabisa kudhibiti rushwa na ufisadi, bado tunawajibika kulifanya taifa hili liwe la kujitegemea. Uwezo huo tunao. Ni muhimu kujenga elimu yetu kuwa bora. Kujenga uzalendo na kujitambua watu wetu kwa taifa lao. Kujenga utaifa na kujitambua ni jambo muhimu sana. Kujitambua sisi ni kina nani? tunawajibu gani na malengo yetu ni yapi kama taifa. Tuna viongozi wasiojitambua na wasiojua wanachokifanya katika serikali na katika vyama vyetu vya siasa. Wanaofikiri kupata nafasi ya uongozi ni kupata nafasi ya kula na ufahari. Kuna kazi ambayo inahitajika kufanywa kulikomboa taifa hili. Kazi hii ni kazi ya kila mmoja wetu.

Ni lazima tu organize upya jamii zetu ili tuweze kufanya kazi ya kuleta maendeleo ya taifa hili kwakuwa maendeleo haya hayawezi kuletwa na serikali peke yake pasipo ushiriki wa dhati wa wananchi. Washindi wa taifa hili ni wananchi wala sio serikali. Wafanya kazi wa taifa hili ni wananchi. Kama taifa hili litaendelea tuzo kubwa na heshima lazima iende kwa wananchi sio viongozi. Kwahiyo kiongozi ambaye mimi nitakaye muunga mkono ni yule atakayekuja na mipango ya kulifanya taifa hili kujitegemea. Bila hivyo tutakuwa tunadanganyana. Na itakuwa ni ngoma ya watoto.

Maamuzi ya kupitisha wagombea hao katika majimbo 262 yamesainiwa na Mwenyekiti wa Chama cha NCCR-Mageuzi, James Mbatia, Makamu Mwenyekiti wa Chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (CHADEMA), Profesa Abdallah Safari, Katibu Mkuu wa chama cha National League for Democracy (NLD), Tozzy Matwanga na Mwenyekiti wa Chama cha Wananchi (CUF), Twaha Taslima.

Majimbo matatu yaliyobaki (Mtwara Mjini, Serengeti na Mwanga) yanasubiri muafaka baada ya kujitokeza wagombea wawili kwa kila jimbo huku kila mgombea akidai anakubalika kuliko mwenzake, ingawa vyama hivyo vilishayagawa majimbo hayo kwa chama kitakachogombea.

Jimbo la Serengeti wamejitokeza Marwa Ryoba (CHADEMA) na Mosena Nyambabe (NCCR-Mageuzi), jimbo la Mwanga wamejitokeza Henry Kilewo (CHADEMA) na Youngsaviour Msuya (NCCR-Mageuzi) na Mtwara Mjini wamejitokeza Maftaha Nachuma (CUF) na Hassani Uledi (NCCR-Mageuzi).

Majimbo ya Segerea na Kigamboni ya jijini Dar es Salaam tayari yamefanyiwa maamuzi kwa Julius Mtatiro (CUF) kubaki ndiye mgombea Segerea na Lucy Magereli wa Chadema kuwa mgombea jimbo la Kigamboni.

Akizungumza na waandishi wa habari leo Dar es Salaam, wakati akitangaza majina hayo Katibu wa NCCR-Mageuzi, Dk. George Kahangwa amesema baada ya maamuzi hayo, haitarajiwi kutokea matatizo ya mivutano kwa viongozi wa ngazi ya mikoa hadi matawi wa vyama vya UKAWA.

“Hatutarajii kuona viongozi wetu wa ngazi zote hasa zile za mikoa, wilaya, kata na matawi wanakuwa kikwazo cha kuyafikia malengo ya kuwakilishwa na mgombea mmoja,” amesema.

“Mgombea yeyote ambaye chama chake hakijaachiwa jimbo analogombea anatakiwa kujitoa katika nafasi yake hiyo na kumwachia mgombea wa chama kilichoachiwa jimbo hilo na kumpatia ushirikiano katika kampeni na utaratibu wa uchaguzi ili tushinde,” amesema Dk. Kahangwa.

Aidha, amesema viongozi kutoka vyama hivyo katika ngazi zote wanapaswa kuzingatia mwongozo wa awali uliosainiwa na Makatibu Wakuu wa vyama hivyo kuhusu kusimamisha wagombea katika nafasi ya udiwani.

Wakati muongozo huo ulipotolewa, viongozi hao walisema kwamba pale patakapokuwa na mvutano hata baada ya maamuzi ya jimbo limeachiwa chama gani kufanywa, basi viongozi wa kitaifa watakapokuwa kwenye kampeni, watazingatia maamuzi hayo na kuwatakia kura waliopitishwa kulingana na maamuzi yale.

Danish scientist shot, killed in Tanzania

According to Ekstra Bladet tabloid, the noted Danish scientist and lichenologist Vagn Alstrup has been shot and killed during a robbery in Tanzania.

The foreign minister has confirmed that a Dane has been killed in Tanzania, but would not reveal any further information. The crime took place last week, and it is still unclear whether the authorities in Tanzania have made any arrests.

Second home

The Dane lived in Tanzania and considered the east African nation his second home.

Alstrup, who was 71 at the time of his death, worked for the University of Copenhagen. He has published a number of book on the subject of lichenology, the study of fungi.

Alstrup’s wife was also shot during the incident, but is expected to survive.

Mahakama yakataa kugawa mali kutokana na ndoa kuwa batili

MAHAKAMA ya Mwanzo Mbagala, Dar es Salaam imesema haiwezi kumuamuru mmiliki wa Shule za Sekondari, St Mathew na St Marks, Thadei Mtembei kutoa talaka kwa Magreth Mwangu kutokana na ndoa yao kuwa batili.

Akisoma hukumu hiyo leo, Hakimu Rajab Tamambele alisema ndoa aliyofunga Mwangu pamoja na Mtembei ambayo ni ya kimila ni batili kwa kuwa mdai hakutoa cheti cha ndoa hiyo ilipofungwa.

Alisema kwa misingi hiyo, mahakama haiwezi kumuamuru Mtembei kutoa talaka kwani aliwasilisha cheti cha ndoa ya mke mmoja aliyoifunga mwaka 1985.

Pia alisema mahakama hiyo haiwezi kugawa mali kama ambavyo mdai ameiomba mahakama, ambapo amesisitiza kuwa mgawanyo wa mali unatokana na ndoa halali ambayo baba na mama wanaishi pamoja.

‘Mashahidi wote wameeleza kuwa Mtembei na Mwangu walikuwa wanakutana hoteli ya Sleep Inn. Kwa hivyo mahakama inaona kuwa uhusiano kati ya mdai na mdaiwa ulikuwa wa kimapenzi pekee au hawara na kwa lugha ya kistaarabu tunaita mzazi mwenzie,’ aliongeza Tamambele.

Alifafanua kuwa kulipa mahari ambapo mdai aliieleza mahakama kuwa alitolewa ng’ombe watano, sio njia ya kufunga ndoa bali ni kuelekea kufunga ndoa.

Aliendelea kusema kuwa kitendo cha baba kupewa mahari akiwa peke yake bila ya kuwa na mzee wa kabila hilo kuthibitisha, sio sahihi katika sheria za ndoa.

Akisoma hukumu hiyo kwa saa moja, Hakimu Tamambele alisema kuwa watoto watatu kati ya Mtembei na Mwangu ni batili kwani wamezaliwa nje ya ndoa, hivyo mahakama haiwezi kuamuru watoto hao kupatiwa matunzo.

‘Mdaiwa anatakiwa kushukuru kitendo cha mdai kujenga nyumba tatu kwa ajili ya watoto kwani wengine hawawezi kufanya kitu kama hicho. Kila mzazi anatakiwa kuwatunza watoto hao,’ alisema.

Akizungumzia kuwakilishwa kwa mdaiwa, alisema kwa mujibu wa sheria ya kama mdaiwa ni mgonjwa anaweza akawakilishwa ambapo mtoto wake, Peter ndiye alichukua nafasi ya kumuwakilisha baba yake.

Aidha, alisema haki ya kukata rufaa kwa mdai iko wazi na kwamba inatakiwa kukatwa kwa siku 45.

Katika kesi hiyo ambayo ilifunguliwa Juni 5, mwaka huu, Mwangu aliiomba mahakama kumuamuru mdaiwa kutoa talaka, matunzo ya watoto na ya machumo ya pamoja yenye thamani ya Sh milioni 800.

Alisema kesi hiyo ilikuwa na jumla ya mashahidi nane ambapo watano kutoka upande wa mdai na watatu upande wa mdaiwa.

Alisema mdai alifungua kesi kupitia ofisi ya Ustawi wa jamii na ilipoanza kusikilizwa mdai alisema walianza mahusiano mwaka 1995 ambapo walizaa watoto watatu na walijenga shule nne, nyumba pamoja na hoteli tatu za Dar es Salaam na Bukoba.

Mamelodi Sundowns cancel Tanzania trip

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns have decided to cancel their trip to Tanzania for an international friendly tournament.

Sundowns were supposed to have travel to Tanzania for the tournament which was set to include the likes of DRC side TP Mazembe, but news coming out of Chloorkop is that the proposed trip has been cancelled.

A source at the club said that the management thought it was not a good idea for the team to travel for a tournament at this time of the season.

"The team is here," the source told Sport24.
“They haven't gone to Tanzania.
“Yes they were supposed to have gone for that international tournament but it won't be happening now.

“I am not aware if they will be playing friendly games locally but if it happens I will will let you know.”

4 Things emotionally strong people don’t do

1. They don’t waste time feeling sorry for themselves

Emotionally strong people don’t sit around feeling sorry about their circumstances or how others have treated them. Instead, they take responsibility for their role in life, work on changing what can be changed, and keep in mind that life isn’t always easy or fair. In the end, happiness is not the absence of problems, but simply the ability to deal well with them. So look at what you have, instead of what you have lost. Because it’s not what the world takes away from you that counts; it’s what you do with what you have left.

2. They don’t compare their journey to everyone else’s

Social comparison is the thief of happiness. Do YOUR best and don’t compare your progress with that of others. They aren’t YOU. We all need our own time to travel our own distance. Emotionally strong people know this is the truth, and they live by it.

3. They don’t say, “I can’t.”

As Henry Ford put it, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.” Emotionally strong people know this is true. If you really want to do something, you can and you will find a way. If you don’t, you will surely find a long list of excuses. So stop saying “I wish” and start saying “I will.” Turn your “can’ts” into “cans” and your dreams into plans.

4. They don’t think it’s too late to start over

Let go of the idea that it’s too late to start over. Remember, it’s always better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don’t… even if it means beginning anew. Just because some things didn’t work out as you had expected, or didn’t happen as fast as you thought they would, is no excuse to give up on yourself. Time passes one way or the other. Do what you need to do so that, at the very least, you can look back someday and say, “I gave life my best shot.”

Remember, it only takes one idea, one second in time, one relationship, one dream, one leap of faith, to change everything, forever. So hang in there. Keep exercising your emotional strength.

Mapungufu ya Ilani ya Uchaguzi ya CCM 2015 - 2020

Mapungufu Yaliyomo Kwenye Ilani Ya Uchaguzi Ya Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) Ya 2015 - 2020

Ilani ya uchaguzi ya Chama cha Mapinduzi ya 2015 – 2020, chama kinachotawala na kinachotaka kiendelee kutawala haiongelei chochote juu ya ilani iliyopita, jinsi ilivyopaswa kutekelezwa, wapi ilifanikiwa na wapi haikufanikiwa na haielezei ni kwanini haikufanikiwa na badala yake CCM wanakuja na ilani mpya ya moja kwa moja utadhani ndo wanataka kuingia madarakani kwa mara ya kwanza.

Katika ilani yao CCM wanasema kuwa chini ya utawala wao watanzania wamepata mafanikiao makubwa ya kiuchumi, kisiasa na kijamii, lakini hawajatwambia haya mafanikio ni makubwa kulinganisha na yapi, yaliyopita? Yaliyotarajiwa au inavyopaswa kuwa kwa mtizamo wao?

Katika ilani yao, bado wanaongelea kupunguza tatizo la ajira na hasa kwa vijana. Hapa wameshashindwa kuondoa tatizo hilo kabla ya kuanza kutekeleza ilani yao maana wanaongelea kupunguza badala ya kulimaliza kabisa ili kama ikitokea wakashindwa kulimaliza, basi watalipunguza kwa kiasi kikubwa. Sasa kama lengo ni kupunguza, basi wakishindwa litapungua kwa kiasi kidogo tu. Na wanaongelea kupunguza tatizo hili la ajira kwa vijana pekee na sio rika lingine la Watanzania.

Ilani ya CCM inaongelea juu ya kuwawezesha wafanyabiashara ndogo kupata mikopo nafuu na kuwapatia maeneo ya kudumu ya kufanyia biashara zao. Hapa kwanza ilani ya chama kinachotawala itueleze kwanza ni kwanini imekuwa ikiwafukuza na kuwanyang’anya vitendeakazi pamoja na bidhaa zao hawa wafanyabisahara wadogo katika miji yetu, na nikwanini sasa inafikiri ni wakati wa kuwatambua hawa wafanyabiashara, maeneo mazuri ya kufanyia biashara na kuhakikisha wanapata mikopo nafuu na nikwanini haipangi kuwawezesha hata ikibidi kwa kuwapa ruzuku wafanyabiashara hawa ili wawe wafanyabisahara wakubwa na ikibidi wakatafute masoko nje ya nchi.

Kilimo Kwanza. Ilani ya CCM inasema kuwawezesha wakulima kupata mafunzo ya kilimo cha kisasa, pembejeo, zana za kisasa na wataalamu wa ugani pamoja na mbinu za kuyafikia masoko ya uhakika ya mazao yao. Ilani hiyo haielezei itafanya nini ili kuhakikisha wakulima wanatafuta masoko popote pale na kuuza mazao yao kwa bei ya juu au bei shindani. Ikizingatiwa serikali yake (CCM) imekuwa ikiwazuia wakulima kuuza mazao nje ya nchi kwenye bei kubwa na kuwalazimisha kuuza mazao kwa bei ya chini inayopangwa na serikali na vyama vya ushirika kwa mfano zao la kahawa kule mkoani Kagera lenye bei ya juu nchi jirani kule Uganda au wakulima wa Mahindi wanaozuiwa kuuza Mahindi yao katika nchi zilizotuzunguka.

Pia wakulima wamekuwa wakinyonywa chini ya serikali ya CCM kwa kulazimika kuuza mazao yao kwa kupitia madalali ambao huwanyonya wakulima kwa kutangaza bei ndogo sana huku wakiuza kwa bei ya juu ya kupata faida kubwa kuliko wakulima wanaowekeza nguvu zao kubwa sana. Ilani itueleze ni kwanini imeruhusu unyonywaji huu kwa wakulima na itafanya nini kuuondoa endapo itapewa ridhaa ya kuendelea kuliongoza taifa hili.

Ajira kwa vijana. Ilani ya CCM inasema kuwa mafanikio katika upanuzi wa elimu ya Sekondari na Vyuo yameongeza mahitaji ya ajira ya vijana wasomi kila mwaka ikilinganishwa na nafasi zinazokuwepo. Hapa swali ni je, nafasi zinazokuwepo wapi? Si kila ilani ya uchaguzi huahidi kuzalisha ajira mpya? Pia inaonekana mafanikio iliyoyaleta CCM ya kupanua elimu ya sekondari na vyuo yamekuwa mwiba kwake kwa kuongeza tatizo kubwa la ajira na upanuzi huu wa elimu basi umefanyika ghafra, haukutegemewa ndo maana ukazalisha tatizo la ajira.

Pia hapa CCM inatumia kigezo cha utafiti cha Taasisi ya Takwimu (NBS) kuhusu ajira kinachosema kuwa mtafuta ajira ni Yule mwenye elimu au vyeti anayetafuta ajira na kwahiyo wale watanzania ambao hawajasoma hawapaswi kuajiriwa na wao sio sehemu ya tatizo la ajira kwa serikali iliyoko madarakani.

Rushwa. Ilani ya CCM ya 2015 – 2020 inaonekana kukerwa sana na tatizo la rushwa na kutoa ahadi nzito za kupambana nayo kamailivyo kwa ilani zilizopita lakini haiweki wazi ni kwanini rushwa imeendelea kushamiri na kwanini wamekuwa wakionekana kushughulikia rushwa ndogo ndogo zaidi. Pia ilani haisemi ni kwanini watuhumiwa wa rushwa kubwakubwa huwa wanaonekana kushinda kesi hata wale wanaoshindwa kesi, adhabu zao zinalalamikikwa kuonekana kuwa ndogo kuliko makosa. Je tutegemee kupambana na rushwa kwa dhati hapa?

Ulinzi na usalama. Ilani ya CCM ya 2015 -2020 inahaidi kuwalinda watanzania. Ilani hii haionyeshi kuwa uhasama kati ya walinda usalama na raia wema iko mashakani. Haisemi ni kwa jinsi gani itakomesha vitendo vya askari wetu kuwapiga, kuwamwagia maji yenye kemikali, mabomu ya machozi n.k raia wema wasionasiraha. Tumeona wafanyabiashara ndogondogo, wafuasi wa vyama vya upinzani na wanafunzi hasa wale wa elimu ya juu wanavyopigwa, kutiwa ulemavu na hata kudhalilishwa na walinda usalama.

Pia majambazi na wahalifu wanatamba sana kiasi cha kuzuia vyombo vya usafiri kushindwa kuendelea na safari zao hasa nyakati za usiku. Ilani haionyeshi ni kwa kiasi gani itashughulika nao hawa. Maasikari wetu hawa pia wamekuwa wahanga wa wahalifu, majangili au tuwaite magaidi ambao wameendelea kuwateka, kuwauwa na kuwanyang’anya vitendea kazi vyao. Ilani ya uchaguzi inapaswa kuelezea pasi na shaka ni kwa jinsi gani itashughulikia ushenzi huu na kurudisha heshima ya jeshi letu la polisi na taifa kwa ujumla.


Ilani ya CCM ya mwaka 2015 – 2020 inasimamia kukua kwa uchumi wa taifa umekuwa ni mzuri na wa kuridhisha yaani wa asilimia 7. Hiki nikigezo jumla ambacho hakionyeshi uhalisia wa ukuaji au kutokukua kwa uchumi wetu. Mwalimu Nyerere aliwahi kusema kuwa uchumi kama hauendani na maendeleo ya mtu mmoja mmoja basi hauna maana.

Ni kweli kuwa uchumi wetu unakua lakini pia pato au uchumi wa mtu mmoja mmoja limeendelea kuwa dogo na kimsingi mtu mmoja mmoja ameendelea kuwa masikini. Ilani haielezi jambo hili na haionyeshi itafanya nini kushughulikia uchumi wa mtu mmoja mmoja ili kujenga uchumi unaowanufaisha watu wote.

Ilani inasema kuwa itahakikisha deni la taifa linaendelea kuwa stahimilivu bila kutwambia ni sababu gani zilizofanya deni hili kupaa kutoka trillion 10 mwaka 2005 hadi zaidi ya trilioni 35 mwaka 2015 ili tuone kama kweli inaweza kulidhibiti.

Ilani haitoi mwelekeo wowote wa kuonyesha ni kwa jinsi gani itahakikisha inaanzisha na kusaidia biashara za vijana wa kitanzania kukua na kwenda mpaka nje ya mipaka yetu ili kujiingizia vipato, kulipa kodi na kuliingizia taifa letu fedha za kigeni. Pia haitoi maelezo yoyote juu ya nafasi ya Tanzania na jinsi ya kushindana katika masoko ya nje kwa kuanzia na yale ya Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki, SADEC n.k na hivyo kusababisha taifa letu kubakia nyuma katika masoko hayo endapo Watanzania wataipatia tena CCM ridhaa ya kuwaongoza tena miaka mingine mitano.

Pia ilani hiyo haitoi maelezo ya kina juu ya matumizi ya rasilimali yetu kwanza kuhakikisha mapato yanakuwa makubwa zaidi na kutafuta vyanzo vipya vya rasilimali zetu hizi. Wala hawasemi watafanya nini kuhakikisha wafanyabiashara wakubwa wanabanwa ili waaache kukwepa ulipaji kodi kwa kusingizio cha likizo ya kodi (tax holidays) na ni jinsi gani itawasaidia wajasiliamali wadogo kupata misamaha dhidi ya kodi zinazoweza kuwasababishia kushindwa kuendeleza biashara zao.

Ubaguzi katika huduma. Ilani hii ya CCM ya 2015 – 2020 haiongelei chochote kuhusu kuimarisha huduma zote muhimu na kuwahudumia wananchi wote kwa usawa. Kwa mfano huduma ya umeme imekuwa ni ya kusuasua miaka yote na hufikia wakati umeme unapatikana kwa mgawo. Katika mikoa yote, kuna maeneo ya “wakubwa” ambayo ni nadra sana huduma za umeme na maji kutokupatikana mahala pote.

Pia ilani haionyeshi jinsi ya kuondoa ubaguzi wa mchakato wa kupata ajira katika Utumishi wa Umma. Ilianzishwa Sekretariet ya Ajira katika Utumishi wa Umma ambayo utangaza kazi, huendesha usaili na kuita kazini wale waliofanikiwa kupata ajira. Sekretariati hii huwajali zaidi waombaji kazi waishio Dar salaam na mikoa ya jirani kwani saili zake karibia zote huzifanyia Dar es salaam na kwahiyo ili mtu ashiriki mchakato wa kushindana kupata ajira serikalini ni vyema akawa anaishi Dar. Lakini kama mtafuta ajira huyu anaishi mikoa kama ya Kigoma, Kagera au Mara, basi aachane na mchakato huo au awe tayari kulipa gharama za nauli za zaidi ya shilingi milioni moja za usafiri na malazi ili akajaribu bahati yake.

Kuhusu maji, ilani ya CCM inadai kuwa itapunguza tatizo hilo kutoka asilimia 53.4 kwa wakazi wa vijijini hada asilimia 70. Sekta muhimu kama hii ambayo inawezesha kilimo na kuokoa nguvu kazi ya wananchi kutumia muda na nguvu nyingi kufuata tu maji, kwanini isilengwe kumalizwa kabisa kwa asilimia miamoja? Hizo asilimia 70 anabakiziwa nani? Bila kuona haya, ilani inasema kuwa itaendelea kujenga vituo vya kuchotea maji badala ya kuhakikisha maji yanamfikia mwananchi pale alipo. Hapa ndo kuna aibu ya kuona viongozi wetu kama vile Rais, waziri na viongozi waandamizi wanazindua miradi ya maji kwa kuwatwisha ndoo wakinamama katika karne hii.

Wakati magonjwa ya mulipuko yakiendelea kutuumiza na kuondoa maisha, ilani ya CCM inasema kuwa itaongeza kasi ya ujenzi wa miundombinu ya maji taka na sio kusimamia na kuhakikisha serikali yake (kama itapata ridhaa) inamalizia kabisa miundombinu hiyo haraka sana iwezekanavyo ili kuepusha wananchi na magojwa ya mulipuko, harufu mbaya na kupendezesha miji yetu.

Hayo ndiyo mapungufu makubwa ambayo wagombea wa CCM wanapaswa kuyatolea ufafanuzi kwa wapiga kura, waseme kama waliyasahau au si vipaumbele au yatatekelezwa bila kulazimikwa kuandikwa katika ilani yao hiyo
