Kenyan, Tanzanian charged with trafficking 10 girls for sexual exploitation

A KENYAN, Mary Amukowa (27) and a Tanzanian, Jackline Milinga (23), appeared before the Kisutu Resident Magistrate's Court in Dar es Salaam yesterday charged with trafficking to Kenya ten girls aged between 18 and 22 for allegedly sexual exploitation.

Before Principal Resident Magistrate Waliarwande Lema, the two accused persons denied the charge. They were remanded in custody because the offence they are charged with is not bailable. The case was adjourned to September 30 for mention as investigations into the matter, according to the prosecution, have not been completed.

Mr Selestine Makoba from the Immigration Department for the prosecution told the court that the accused persons committed the offence on September 4 at Magomeni and Makumbusho within Kinondoni municipality in the city.

It is alleged that the two accused persons, jointly and together, recruited and transported the girls (name withheld), all Tanzanians, from the United Republic of Tanzania to Nairobi in Kenya for the purpose of sexual exploitation.

The arraignment of the two accused persons comes hardly a year after three other people, Tanzanian Ally Hamidu Ally (25) and two Pakistan nationals, Muhammad Yousuph (42) and Ajaz Ahmed (49), were charged with human trafficking.

Ally, a resident of Kisarawe in Coast Region, allegedly brought into Tanzania 11 Nepal commandos and soldiers on pretext of providing them jobs in the country, while the two other accused persons were alleged to have transported from Pakistan eight fellow nationals to the country for similar purposes.

It is alleged that Ally had been demanding 3,500 US dollars each in the deal. He is alleged to have abandoned his controversial customers at a certain guest house in the city before being nabbed by the immigration officers.

It is claimed further that the two accused persons have been using a route of Mtwara to South Africa or Mozambique and have been allegedly charging 600 US dollars per head.

Meanwhile, Moshi Primary Court in Kilimanajro Region has sentenced 10 women to six months imprisonment or a fine of 100,000/- each after having been found guilty of engaging in prostitution.

Delivering the judgment on Wednesday, Magistrate-in-Charge Anitha Makao said the court was satisfied beyond doubt with the evidence presented by the complainant, who is police officer WP 3011, prosecutor Elizabeth.

She said the court looked at three key factors, which include the place where they were arrested, clothes as they were half naked and confessions made by them. "After arrests, they were taken to police and failed to explain what types of jobs they were doing.

They were also arrested at Rengua B, known as Malindi Pub, which it was an area of their residence," she explained. However, only three out of ten accused were present during the judgement and therefore the magistrate ordered the arrest of other seven accused who disappeared in a period of one week.

The accused who were present are Rachel John, Lulu Kwayu and Rachel Godluck, while those who disappeared include Ester Allan, Angelina John, Glory Wanjala, Rosemary Sebastian, Anna Valence, Lillian Akwili and Silvia Joseph.

They were arrested on July 29, this year, along Rengua Road near Malindi Pub and Pub Alberto by policemen on patrol at about 4:45pm.

Lion expert banned from Tanzania for exposing corruption


Since 1978, when he set up the Serengeti Lion Project, Texas-born Craig Packer, author of Lions In The Balance: Man Eaters, Manes and Men With Guns, has been on the front lines of the battle to save the king of the jungle.

But after Packer was banned from entering Tanzania for speaking out against corruption in the government’s wildlife sector the African lion lost one of its greatest champions.

Speaking from his home in Minneapolis, Packer explains how a visit to the Chauvet caves in France was one of the highlights of his life; why Maasai warriors need to find ways of proving their manhood other than by killing lions; and how corruption among high-ranking officials in Tanzania is threatening to destroy the lions of the Serengeti.

Taarifa ya baadhi ya viongozi wa NCCR-mageuzi kuhusu mwenendo wa UKAWA

Makamu Mwenyekiti wa Chama cha NCCR-MAGEUZI,Reticia Ghati Mosore akizungumza na vyombo mbalimbali vya habari katika Hoteli ya Land Mark jijini Dar es Salaam muda huu kuhusiana na ukiukwaji wa taratibu katika umoja wa Katiba ya Wananchi (UKAWA) na kutangaza kuendelea na mapambano nje ya umoja huo wa vyama pinzani. 
Katibu Mkuu wa NCCR-MAGEUZI, Mosena Nyambabe akizungumza na waandishi wa habari juu ya hatima yao ya kupambana kama wenyewe NCCR-MAGEUZI bila ya UKAWA na kuwa chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo CHADEMA kuwa inavibana vyama vishiriki vya UKAWA katika wagombea wa Ubunge majimboni na wagombea wa udiwani katika Kata.

UTANGULIZI

Sisi viongozi wa ngazi ya juu wa Chama cha NCCR-Mageuzi, Makamu Mwenyekiti, Katibu Mkuu tukiwa na Wajumbe wa Halmashauri Kuu ya taifa na viongozi wengine, tumekuja mbele yenu mtusaidie kufikisha ujumbe maalum kwa wanachama wetu na Watanzania wote wanaokiamini chama chetu,

Tumefika kuelezea kutoridhishwa na mwenendo wa ushirikiano wa vyama vinavyounda UKAWA. 

Tumekuja pia kuwaelezea ni hatua gani tulizoamua kuchukua kukabiliana na changamoto hii.

Wengi wenu mnafahamu kuwa UKAWA ni Umoja wa Katiba ya Wananchi ulionzishwa wakati wa Bunge Maalum la Katiba kutetea Rasimu ya Katiba iliyotokana na maoni ya wananchi dhidi ya uchakachuaji uliokuwa unafanywa na CCM.

UKAWA siyo chama cha siasa bali umoja. NCCR-Mageuzi iliamua kujiunga na harakati hizi kwa nia njema ya kutetea maslahi ya taifa letu. Zaidi ya mwaka sasa tangu tujiunge na umoja huu, matokeo yake yamekuwa ni mabaya kwa uhai na ustawi wa chama chetu. Wakati vyama vingine vimezidi kuimarika ndani ya UKAWA, NCCR-Mageuzi imedhoofika. Hali hii haikubaliki.

MAKUBALIANO YA USHIRIKIANO BAINA YA VYAMA VYA UKAWA

Vyama vinavyounda UKAWA, vilisaini Makubaliano ya Ushirikiano katika Mkutano wa Hadhara kwenye viwanja vya Jangwani. Kitendo hicho kiliwavutia na kuwapa matumaini wananchi na wao wakazidi kutuunga mkono. Iliamuliwa kwamba tusiuwe vyama vyetu bali tuunganishe nguvu za vyama vyetu kama namna ya kujiimarisha kwa pamoja.

UCHAGUZI WA SERIKALI ZA MITAA DISEMBA 2014

Kabla ya Uchaguzi wa Serikali za Mitaa wa mwaka 2014, vyama vinavyounda UKAWA vilitiliana saini ya Mwongozo wa Ushirikiano katika Uchaguzi huo.

Licha ya kutiliana saini Makubaliano hayo, bado kulikuwa na ukiukwaji mkubwa na wa makusudi wa Mwongozo huo.

Licha ya kuzijadili changamoto zilizojitokeza katika Uchaguzi huo, lakini hazikupatiwa ufumbuzi wowote.

Sisi tuliopo hapa tulionya mapema kuhusu mwenendo huu wa kuvunja makubaliano na tukaomba taratibu tulizokubaliana zitumike ili kurudi kwenye misingi ya UKAWA lakini hatukusikilizwa.

USHIRIKIANO KATIKA UCHAGUZI MKUU, OKTOBA 2015

Licha ya changamoto zilizokuwepo, tuliamua kwa pamoja kwamba vyama vya UKAWA tuingie katika Uchaguzi Mkuu tukiwa na makubaliano ya ushirikiano, ikiwemo kuwa na mgombea mmoja wa Urais na kuachiana majimbo ya uchaguzi.

Pia, katika kuendesha umoja huu, tuliunda vyombo vya kutusaidia ambavyo ni:-
Kamati ya Wenyeviti.
Kamati ya Makatibu Wakuu.
Kamati ya Ufundi.
Kamati ya Wataalam.

Pamoja na kuunda vyombo vya kuendesha UKAWA, tangu Januari 2015, bado tumeshindwa kujenga UKAWA imara na tuliyotarajia kwa manufaa ya wanaukawa na wananchi kwa ujumla.

Yafuatayo yamethibitisha hili jambo:
Tumeshindwa kuweka Kanuni za uendeshaji wa UKAWA kama tulivyokubaliana. Kwa maana hiyo,tunafanya mambo kiholela
Tumeshindwa kuunda Kamati zitakazoshughulikia migogoro baina ya vyama.
Tumeshindwa kuunda na kuzisimamia Kamati za Majimbo
Tumeshindwa kupata muafaka wa kuachiana majimbo.

Mfano, NCCR – Mageuzi tuliachiwa majimbo 12 ya Kasulu Vijijini, Kigoma Kusini, Muhambwe, Kasulu Mjini, Vunjo, Ileje, Mbinga Mjini, Manyovu, Buyungu, Ngara, Nkenge na Korogwe mjini. Ikumbukwe kwamba, mwaka 2010, NCCR-Mageuzi ilisimamisha wagombea katika majimbo 67.

Kwa maana hiyo, UKAWA umeturidisha nyuma katika kupata wabunge na kuimarisha chama zaidi ya miaka 20 baada ya kuundwa kwake.

Licha ya kukubaliana kwamba NCCR-Mageuzi iachiwe majimbo 12, wenzetu wa vyama vingine katika UKAWA wamesimamisha wagombea katika majimbo 6 kati ya hayo. Wametuvunja moyo na kutuonyesha kwamba hawatujali. Na hata kule ambapo katika majimbo sita ambapo wametuachia bado wenzetu wanatufanyia fujo kuliko hata wanazotufanyia wanachama wa CCM. Tunamifano mingi ya kuonyesha ni jinsi gani wagombea wetu wanavyofanyiwa vurugu. 

Tumeshindwa kupata muafaka wa namna ya kuachiana wagombea udiwani katika kata nyingi.
Tumeshindwa kuonesha na kukubaliana kila chama kitapata nafasi gani na ngapi katika Serikali ya UKAWA.

Tumeshindwa kufuata utaratibu wa kumpata mgombea Urais wa UKAWA

Tumeshuhudia vurugu kubwa iliyoletwa ndani ya UKAWA na wanachama waliotoka CCM na wao kupewa umuhimu kuliko viongozi wa UKAWA. Zaidi ya Mbatia hakuna kiongozi wa NCCR-Mageuzi anayeshirikishwa, anayezungumza au aliyepo kwenye kampeni za mgombea Urais wa UKAWA.

Tumeshindwa kuwa na timu ya kampeni timu ya UKAWA, ambayo inagharamiwa na UKAWA na inatafuta fedha pamoja, kama ilivyokubaliwa.

Tunashuhudia UKAWA ambayo Chadema ndiyo UKAWA-Bara na CUF ndio UKAWA-Zanzibar. Chadema haijali Zanzibar na CUF haijali Bara. Na NCCR-Mageuzi haipo huku wala kule ikiendelea kudhoofika siku hadi siku.

Tumeshindwa kuona uwazi katika matumizi ya fedha na maamuzi muhimu ya uendeshaji wa UKAWA.

Tumefadhaishwa na kuvunjwa kwa misingi ya kuanzisha kwa UKAWA.

Wakati NCCR imetii mgawanyo wa majimbo kwa vyama vinavyounda UKAWA, vyama vingine na hasa CHADEMA vimesimamisha wagombea kinyume cha makubaliano.

NINI KIFANYIKE NA UKAWA

Hatukuwaita hapa kuwaambia kwamba tunajiuzulu siasa kutokana na changamoto hizi. Tumeamua kupambana na kurudisha hadhi na heshima ya Chama chetu. Hatuwezi kubwaga manyanga. Tunataka kuitoa CCM madarakani kutokana na ulaghai na ujanja-ujanja wa miaka 50. Lakini hatuwezi kuitoa CCM kwa mbinu za ulaghai na ujanja-ujanja. Tunakwenda kukabidhiwa dhamana ya kuongoza nchi na Watanzania. Tunao wajibu wa kujiongoza vizuri ili tuwaonyeshe Watanzania kwamba tuna uwezo wa kuwaongoza vizuri.

WITO WETU

Tunamshauri Mwenyekiti wetu, ndg. James Mbatia, aitishe vikao vya kikatiba ili tuweze kujadiliana kuhusu hatima ya chama chetu.

Tunashauri ndg. Mbatia asiwemsemaji wa CHADEMA wakati anakiacha chama chake (NCCR-Mageuzi) kinadhoofika. Kwa mfano, Dr. Slaa alipoishambulia Chadema hakuna kiongozi wa Chadema aliyemjibu isipokuwa Mbatia ndiye aliyeamua kujiingiza kwenye ugomvi ndani ya Chadema.

Tutachangishana ili tusafiri kwenye majimbo na kata za wagombea wetu na kuwasaidia kwenye kampeni ili wasibaki wapweke kama yatima.

Tunasisitiza kwamba upinzani wa kweli nchini hauwezi kujengwa kwa njia za hila, kwa kukiuka taratibu za kidemokrasia tulizojiwekea wenyewe, kwa kukiuka misingi muhimu kama uadilifu, kwa kuweka mbele tamaa na maslahi binafsi kuliko taifa, kwa kutegemea propaganda. Tukifanya hivi, wananchi watashindwa kututoufautisha na CCM na wataamua kuchagua zimwi walijualo. Hatari hii tunaiona wazi kabisa.

[video] Lubuva: NEC itatangaza matokeo ya wagombea Urais vituoni

Update/Taarifa Mpya: 




Mwenyekiti wa NEC, Jaji Damian Lubuva alisema tume imepeleka taa katika vituo vyote vya kupigia kura kuepuka kura kuhamishwa na kuhesabiwa sehemu nyingine.

“Tunasema kura zitahesabiwa katika kituo husika lakini inapotokea hiyo sehemu haina taa inabidi kura hizo zihamishiwe katika kituo chenye taa ambako zitasindikizwa na mawakala na zitatenganishwa na za kituo hicho,” alisema Lubuva.

Alisema ili kuepuka hali hiyo Tume imesambaza taa katika vituo vyote vya kupigia kura ambavyo ni 72,000 nchi nzima.

Akizungumzia mchango wa vyombo vya habari katika uchaguzi huu, aliviomba viisaidie tume kutoa taarifa sahihi uchaguzi uwe wa amani.

“Vyombo vya habari vikiwa mstari wa mbele na kufanya kazi yake kwa umakini bila kupotosha vitaisaidia Tume iendeshe uchaguzi katika hali ya amani na utulivu,” alisema Lubuva.

Alisema vyombo vya habari havitaruhusiwa kutangaza mshindi wa uchaguzi kabla ya kutangazwa na mamlaka husika lakini wanaruhusiwa kuripoti matokeo ya vituoni kama yalivyo.


MWENYEKITI wa Tume ya Taifa ya Uchaguzi (NEC), Jaji Mstaafu Damian Lubuva, amesema kura zote za urais, ubunge na udiwani, zitahesabiwa katika vituo vya kupigia kura na matokeo yote kutangazwa hapo hapo na ni marufuku kusafirisha masanduku ya kura kama ilivyokuwa zamani.

Jaji Lubuva aiyasema hayo Dar es Salaam jana katika mkutano na wawakilishi wa walemavu kujadili namna bora ya wao kushiriki katika Uchaguzi Mkuu Oktoba 25 mwaka huu.

Alisema katika uchaguzi wa mwaka huu ni marufuku kuhamisha masanduku ya kura kwa sababu vituo vya kupigia kura vitabadilika kuwa vituo vya kuhesabia kura baada ya upigaji kura kumalizika.

“Kura zote za urais, ubunge na udiwani zitahesabiwa katika kila kituo na matokeo yatabandikwa vituoni hapo hivyo sijui wanaosema kura zitaibiwa zitaibiwaje,” alisema JajiLubuva na kuongeza:

“Baada ya matokeo kubandikwa katika kila kituo yatapelekwa katika kata husika kujumlishwa na hapo pia yatabandikwa.

“Mshindi wa udiwani atatangazwa hapo na yale ya ubunge na urais yatapelekwa jimboni ambako yatajumlishwa na mshindi wa ubunge atatangazwa na kukabidhiwa cheti huku ya urais yakipelekwa makao makuu ya Tume.

“Matokeo ya urais yatabandikwa katika kila jimbo na fomu ile ya matokeo itaskaniwa na kutumwa moja kwa moja makao makuu ya tume kwa kupitia mkongo wa mawasiliano wa taifa badala ya simu za mkononi kama ilivyokuwa awali,” alisema Lubuva.

Alisema njia hiyo ya itasaidia matokeo kufika kwa haraka kama inavyotakiwa na baada ya tume kupokea matokeo hayo itakuwa ikiyatangaza moja kwa moja kupitia luninga na redio.

Jaji Lubuva alisema njia nyingine iliyoandaliwa ya kutuma matokeo ni kwa nukushi (fax) ambako halmashauri zote nchini zimepatiwa vifaa vitakavyoziwezesha kuyatuma matokeo haraka.

Alisema hatua ya tume kutangaza matokeo hayo kupitia luninga na redio itasaidia wananchi kulinganisha matokeo watakayokuwa nayo na yatakayokuwa yanatangazwa na tume.

Kutokana na hali hiyo alivishauri vyama vya siasa viache kauli za kuwataka wafuasi wao wasiondoke vituoni baada ya kupiga kura kwa vile hakuna kura zitakazoibiwa.

“Sioni haja ya vyama kusema vinalinda kura kwa sababu kura zote zinabaki vituoni na zitahesabiwa palepale tofauti na zamani ambako zilikuwa zikipelekwa kata na jimboni kuhesabiwa,” alisema.

  7. Tunawahimiza wananchi kuwa makini katika kufuatilia kampeni na sera mbalimbali za wagombea, kuzipima kwa hali ya juu sera hizo, kutokuuza kadi zao za kupigia kura, kutokununuliwa na kujitokeza kwa wingi kutumia uhuru na haki yao ya kuchagua viongozi wanao wataka kwa hiari na amani.

Mtikila 'ashauri' Watanzania kuhusu kipengele cha Urais


Mchungaji Christopher Mtikila ambaye ni Mwenyekiti wa Democratic Party (DP), amewataka Watanzania kutokipigia kura kipengele cha Urais siku ya kupiga kura tarehe 25 Oktoba mwaka huu na badala yake, wawachague Wabunge na Madiwani tu, kwa kuwa wagombea wote wa kiti cha Urais hawana uwezo wa kuliongoza taifa hili.

Mtikila ameitoa kauli hiyo leo Jijini Dar es Saalam wakati wa mkutano na waandishi wa habari ambapo amesema nasafi ya Urais inapaswa kupewa mtu mzalendo na mwenye maono chanya na nchi yake ili aweze kulivusha taifa mahala lilipo sasa anapodai penye shida lukuki akisema wagombea wote wa Urais hawana sifa hizo.

Mchangaji Mtikila huku akiwataka kwa majina wagombea hao amesema mgombea wa Chama cha Mapinduzi John Magufuli pamoja na mgombea kupitia CHADEMA/UKAWA Edward Lowassa hawafai hata kufikiriwa kupewa nchi kwani wanaweza kulifikisha taifa sehemu anayodai ni mbaya.

Amewataka Watanzania kuwa siku hiyo ya kupiga kura ni wajitokeze kwa wingi na kuwapigia kura madiwani pamoja wabunge na kutompigia kura mgombea yeyote wa Urais.

Mchungaji huyo pia alitumia mkutano wake huo kumshambulia Lowassa (bila kuonesha ushahidi) akidai anatumiwa na Rais wa Rwanda, Kagame kuleta mchafuko nchini.

WIZARA YA MAMBO YA NDANI YA NCHI JESHI LA POLISI TANZANIA

TAARIFA KWA UMMA
16/09/2015

Ndugu Waandishi wa Habari,

Mabibi na Mabwana.

KUANZA KUTUMIKA KWA KANUNI MPYA ZA 


I. TOZO LA PAPO KWA HAPO KWA NJIA YA KIELETRONIKI (THE ROAD TRAFFIC (NOTIFICATION OF OFFENCES) (AMENDMENT) REGULATIONS, 2015, NA


II. KANUNI YA KUWEKA NUKTA KATIKA LESENI ZA UDEREVA (THE ROAD TRAFFIC (DRIVERS LICENSE POINT SYSTEM) REGULATIONS, 2014.


1. KANUNI YA TOZO LA PAPO KWA HAPO KWA NJIA YA KIELETRONIKI.

Kanuni hii ni ya Sheria ya Usalama Barabarani inayohusu ulipaji wa tozo la papo kwa hapo kwa njia ya kielektroniki. Kanuni hii inasomwa pamoja na Sheria ya Usalama Barabarani Sura ya 168 kama ilivyorejewa mwaka 2002, Kifungu cha 95 Iliyotiwa saini na Waziri wa Mambo ya Ndani ya Nchi na kupewa namba 30/2015 kisha kutangazwa katika gazeti la Serikali la tarehe 30/01/2015. Kanuni hii itatumika katika kulipisha faini za papo kwa hapo kwa njia ya mtandao.

Ndugu Wanahabari,

Kutokana na kuongezeka kwa malalamiko kutoka kwa wamiliki wa magari na madereva kwamba wamekuwa wakilipishwa faini na askari barabarani pasipo kupewa risiti halali za serikali (GRR), Jeshi la Polisi kwa kushirikiana na wadau liliamua kubuni mfumo wa kielektroniki utakaochukua nafasi ya mfumo unaotumika sasa wa tozo la papo kwa hapo.

Mfumo huu utaanza kwa majaribio katika baadhi ya maeneo tu (Live testing) Jijini la Dar es salaam kuanzia kesho Alhamisi tarehe 17/09/2015. Hivyo msishangae kuwaona askari wakiwa barabarani na mashine zitakazotumika katika ulipishaji wa faini za papo kwa hapo. 

Ni matumaini yetu kwa kuanzia na Jiji la Dar es salaam itatusaidia kubaini changamoto zitakazojitokeza na kuweza kuja na mfumo bora zaidi tutakapoanza nchi nzima.

Ndugu Wanahabari,
Mfumo wa ulipaji faini za papo kwa hapo kielekitroniki unafanyakazi kama ifuatavyo:
Dereva aliyetenda kosa akikamatwa na kutakiwa kulipa faini kwa njia ya kielektroniki, askari ataingiza kwenye mashine taarifa za namba ya usajili wa gari, nambari ya leseni ya dereva, eneo kosa lilipofanyika, kosa lililofanyika na kisha askari atatoa tiketi ya kielektroniki kumpa dereva aliyetenda kosa. 

Tiketi hiyo pamoja na kuwa na namba ya kumbukumbu ya malipo pia itakuwa na maelekezo kwa dereva yanayosema: Unatakiwa kulipa faini ya kosa ulilotenda kupitia mitandao ya simu ya tigo pesa, M-pesa, Airtel Money, Maxi malipo au kupitia kadi yako ya benki (ATM Card za NMB na UMOJA SWITCH). Unatakiwa kulipa faini yako ndani ya siku saba. Baada ya siku saba utatozwa ziada ya 25%, baada ya siku kumi na nne na kuendelea utatozwa ziada ya 50% ya tozo la awali na itakuwa ikiongezeka kadiri unavyochelewa kulipa. Kwa wale watakaokamatwa wakati wa oparesheni watafikishwa mahakamani ambapo mbali na kulipa malimbikizo ya tozo watatozwa faini ya TZS 50,000/= au kifungo cha miezi miwili jela.

Ndugu Wanahabari, 

Ili kulipia kwa njia ya mitandao ya simu namba maalum ya Polisi (USSD Code) itakayotumika ni *152*75#. Namba hii pamoja na kutumika katika kulipia tozo pia unaweza kuangalia iwapo gari lako linadaiwa tozo la notification lililolimbikizwa.

Ndugu Wanahabari,

Baada ya kutolewa tiketi hiyo dereva husika atatakiwa kulipa faini yake kwa njia hizo zilizotajwa kisha kuiwasiliha kwa askari mwenye mashine namba ya kumbukumbu ya malipo aliyoipata kupitia mtandao husika. Namba hiyo ya kumbukumbu itaingizwa kwenye mashine ya kutolea tiketi ambapo itatolewa risiti ya malipo kisha kukabidhiwa kwa dereva husika.

Ieleweke kwamba, ulipaji huu wa tozo kielektroniki hauna tofauti na ule unaotumika katika kulipia umeme wa LUKU au ada za Magari zinazotozwa kwa njia ya mtandao na Mamlaka ya Mapato Tanzania (TRA).

Ndugu Wanahabari,

Ili kurahisisha zoezi hili la ulipaji faini kwa njia ya kielektroniki, madereva watatakiwa kutembea na leseni zao halisi za udereva vinginevyo watalazimika kupelekwa vituoni kwa ajili ya kupata taarifa zao za leseni kutoka katika computer za mfumo wa leseni za udereva jambo ambalo linaweza kuwapotezea muda. 

Aidha ieleweke kwamba dereva anapoandikiwa faini ya kielekroniki akichelewa kulipa katika muda aliopewa, Jeshi la Polisi litakuwa likiendesha oparesheni mara kwa mara kwa kuyamulika magari yote yanayodaiwa faini kwa kutumia mtambo maalum wa kutambua namba za usajili wa magari yanayodaiwa (Automatic Number Plate Recognition System). Watakaokamatwa katika oparesheni hizi kwa kukwepa kulipa faini, mbali na kutakiwa kulipa faini aliyolimbikiza awali pia atafikishwa mahakamani kwa mujibu wa sharia.

2. KANUNI YA KUWEKA NUKTA KATIKA LESENI ZA UDEREVA 

Ndugu wanahabari,

Sheria ya Usalama Barabarani Sura ya 168 kama ilivyorejewa mwaka 2002, Kifungu cha 25A na 114(h) imeweka Kanuni ya uwekaji nukta katika leseni za udereva (THE ROAD TRAFFIC (DRIVERS LICENSE POINT SYSTEM). 

Mfumo wa ulipaji faini kwa njia ya kielektoniki utakwenda sambamba na Kanuni ya uwekaji wa nukta katika leseni za udereva kulingana na uzito wa kosa lililotendwa na dereva. 

Mfano, dereva akishtakiwa kwa kosa kutofunga mkanda wa usalama atapata nukta 1, akishtakiwa kwa kosa la uendeshaji wa hatari atapata nukta 3, akishtakiwa kwa kosa la mwendokasi atapata nukta 5. Nukta hizi zitakapotimia 15 leseni ya dereva husika itafungiwa kwa kipindi cha miezi sita.
Ndugu wanahabari,

Mwisho nitoe wito kwa madereva na wananchi kwa ujumla kutupa ushirikiano katika kutekeleza mfumo huu mpya wa ulipaji wa faini za papo kwa hapo katika Jiji la Dar es salaam na hatimaye tutakapoanza nchi nzima.

ENDESHA SALAMA - OKOA MAISHA.

UKAWA yataja zitakakotoka fedha za elimu bure, bajeti, punguzo la kodi ya mshahara


BAADA ya ahadi ya vyama vinavyounda Umoja wa Katiba ya Wananchi (Ukawa) ya kutoa elimu bure kwenye ngazi zote na kupunguza kodi ya mishahara kutoka asilimia 18 hadi tisa, kubezwa kwamba haitekelezeki, umoja huo umeeleza ilipopata jeuri ya ahadi hiyo baada ya kuainisha vyanzo vya mapato watakavyotumia.

Akizungumza na waandishi wa habari jijini Dar es Salaam juzi, Mwenyekiti Mwenza wa Ukawa, James Mbatia, amesema wamefanya utafiti wa kina na kubaini ahadi hizo zinatekelezeka tofauti na ambavyo wapinzani wanawakejeli.

Alisema utafiti uliofanyika umebaini kuwa iwapo watadhibiti mapato yanayopotea katika ulipaji kodi, kupunguza misamaha ya kodi hadi asilimia 1, kuboresha ufanisi katika Bandari ya Dar es Salaam, sekta ya utalii na uvuvi, mapato ya Serikali yataongezeka maradufu kuliko ya sasa.

“Wameanza kutukebehi kwamba ilani yetu haitatekelezeka, eti hizo fedha za kutoa elimu bure kuanzia chekechea hadi chuo kikuu itatoka wapi,” alisema.

Alisema takwimu za Serikali sasa hivi zinaonyesha mapato ya ndani yatokanayo na kodi na yasiyotokana na kodi ni Sh trilioni 13.47 ambayo ni asilimia 14.3.

“Hivyo kutokana na takwimu hizo, asilimia 100 ya pato la taifa ni zaidi ya Sh trilioni 90,” alisema.

Mbatia alitaja mambo yatakoyoweza kusaidia kwenye ukusanyaji kodi ni kuwekwa mazingira mazuri kwa mlipakodi na wigo wa kodi kutanuliwa, kuwapo viwango vya kodi vinavyotabirika na tegemezi na Mamlaka ya Mapato (TRA) kupambana na ukwepaji wa kodi.

Alitaja njia nyingine kuwa ni kupunguza misamaha ya kodi hadi kufikia asilimia moja ya pato la taifa, kuongeza ufanisi Bandari ya Dar es Salaam, kuweka mazingira mazuri na endelevu kwenye sekta ya utalii na kukusanya kwa ufanisi mapato kwenye sekta ya uvuvi.

“Kwenye sekta ya uvuvi pekee tunaweza kupata zaidi ya Sh trilioni moja kwa mwaka. Lakini pia kwa sasa mapato yanayotokana na kodi ya nyumba kubwa kubwa ni asilimia tatu tu ya makusanyo yote,” alisema.

ZITAKAKOTOKA FEDHA ZA ELIMU

Mbatia alisema wakati Serikali ina uwezo wa kukusanya asilimia 25 pekee ya pato la taifa kwa sasa, wao wataweza kukusanya na ongezeko la zaidi ya Sh trilioni 10.

“Chukua asilimia 25 ya pato la taifa leo ambalo kwa takwimu za Wizara ya Fedha ni zaidi ya trilioni 23.55 wakati wao wanakusanya Sh trilioni 14.3, niwahakikishie Watanzania tuna uwezo wa kuleta ufanisi tukifanya uamuzi, na Lowassa anaweza kufanya uamuzi mgumu,” alisema Mbatia.

Alisema wanafunzi wanaosoma katika vyuo vikuu ni 300,000 na ada yao ni inafikia sh trilioni 1.55, hivyo hata kama wataongezeka mara mbili bado Serikali ya Ukawa itaweza kumudu gharama hizo kutokana na makusanyo ya kodi.

KODI YA MSHAHARA

Mbatia alisema kwa sasa kodi ya wafanyakazi wa Tanzania ni kubwa ikilinganishwa na nchi nyingine za Afrika Mashariki.

Alisema licha ya kwamba Serikali inasema kodi ni asilimia 11, ukweli ni kuwa kiasi hicho kinakatwa kwa watu wenye mshahara wa kima cha chini, huku wale wa juu wakikatwa hadi asilimia 18.

“Wafanyakazi wa Tanzania ndio wanalipa kodi kubwa ya mshahara ambayo ni takribani asilimia 18, na hizo ni takwimu za Benki ya Dunia tukifuatiwa na Uganda wanaolipa asilimia 11, Burundi asilimia 10, Kenya asilimia 6.8 na Rwanda asilimia 5.6.

“Tunavyosema tutapunguza kodi kutoka asilimia 18 mpaka tisa ambayo ni punguzo la Sh bilioni 704, hilo punguzo tutalipata kwenye sekta ya utalii, uvuvi, ndiyo maana tunasema tutaipunguza kodi kwa mfanyakazi, tunawaambia Watanzania watuamini, haya tutayafanya na yanawezekana kabisa,” alisema Mbatia.

SAFARI ZA VIONGOZI

Mbatia alisema mbali na kuangalia mambo makubwa, safari za viongozi ni eneo jingine watakaloweza kulitumia kupata fedha zitakazoweza kufidia pengo litakalosababishwa na kupunguza kodi ya mishahara na kutoa elimu bure.

“Viongozi walioko madarakani, hususani rais, ameshasafiri nje ya Tanzania takribani mara 409 na wastani wa kila safari ya siku tatu mpaka tano ni dola milioni 3 na milioni 5, hivyo mpaka sasa tayari wametumia takribani sh trilioni 4 katika safari hizo,” alisema.

Alisema fedha hizo zingeweza kujenga vyuo vya kisasa vya veta zaidi ya 200 nchi nzima ambapo kila kimoja kingegharimu Sh bilioni 20, pia zingeweza kujenga hospitali zaidi ya 100, kila moja ikigharimu Sh bilioni 30 na kujenga vyuo vikuu zaidi ya 80, kila kimoja kikigharimu Sh bilioni 50.

Mbatia alisema si kwamba Serikali ya Ukawa itaishi kama kisiwa bila kushirikiana na wengine bali watapunguza safari zote zisizo za lazima.

“Kwa mfano rais anataka kutunukiwa shahada ya heshima, hakuna sababu ya yeye kwenda nje ya nchi na kutumia mabilioni ya fedha za walipakodi, kwanini hao wanaotaka kumtunuku wasije pale Ikulu? Lakini hata mikutano mingine siyo lazima aende, anaweza kushiriki kwa kutumia teknolojia (teleconference),” alisema.
