Rambirambi za msiba wa kuuawa kwa Mwenyekiti wa CHADEMA Geita

Salamu za rambirambi kufuatia kifo cha Menyekiti wa CHADEMA mkoa wa Geita, ndugu Alphonce Mawazo 

Napenda kuchukua fursa hii kuwapa pole makamanda wenzangu wote ikiwemo viongozi wa CHADEMA Makao Makuu, Viongozi wa CHADEMA Kanda ya Ziwa, Viongozi wa CHADEMA Mkoa wa Geita na wapenda mabadiliko wote Tanzania kufuatia kifo cha kamanda Alphonce Mawazo kilichotokea leo tarehe 14 Novemba 2015. 

Kwa kweli nimepokea taarifa ya kifo cha kamanda Mawazo kwa mshituko mkubwa hasa kutokana na mazingira ya kifo chenyewe ambayo inasemekana ameuawa kwa kuvamiwa na kupigwa na nondo na mapanga na kusababisha majeraha makubwa yaliyopelekea kutoa uhai wake. Natambua mchango mkubwa aliyotoa Alphonce Mawazo kwa kukijenga chama katika kila kona ya nchi yetu tangu alipohama CCM na kujiunga na CHADEMA. Alphonce Mawazo ni kamanda aliyethubutu kuongea ukweli kwenye majukwaa bila uoga. Mchango wake wa kukijenga chama hakuna wa kufananishwa naye kwa vijana wa CHADEMA. 

Rai yangu 

Napenda kuishauri serikali kwa kushirikiana na vyombo vya dola, likiwemo Jeshi la Polisi, kufanya uchunguzi wa kina kujua waliohusika na mauaji haya ya kinyama ili wachukuliwe hatua kali za kisheria, kwani muendelezo huu wa vifo tata vinavyohusisha masuala ya kisiasa vinajenga chuki kati ya raia wenye itikadi tofauti za kisiasa hosusani CCM na vyama vya upinzani. Pia inasababisha raia kutokuwa na imani na Jeshi la Polisi na kuamaini kwamba linatumika katika kukandamiza demokrasia. Vile vile muendelezo wa matukio haya unaweza kusababisha raia kukosa imani na Serikali iliyo madarakani. 

Mwisho wa yote vitendo hivi visipochukuliwa hatua stahiki vinaweza kusababisha uvunjifu mkubwa wa amani na kuondoa sifa ya Tanzania kuwa nchi ya amani kama ilivyozoeleka. 

Ni matumaini yangu kuwa Serikali itafanya uchunguzi wa kina wa tukio hili kwa kuwachukulia hatua kali wahusika ili kuondoa sintofahamu iliyojaa kwenye mawazo ya Watanzania.

FIFA World Cup qualifier - Tanzania 2:2 Algeria

First goal...


Second goal...


Two goals from Islam Slimani helped Algeria come from behind to draw 2-2 with Tanzania in the first leg of their World Cup qualifier in Dar-es-Salaam (Saturday November 14, 2015).

Earlier, the Taifa Stars had left Algeria stunned by taking a 2-0 lead.

Elias Maguli put the home side ahead just before half-time, scoring in the 44th minute.

Tanzania increased their lead after the break with a goal in the 55th minute through their in-form TP Mazembe striker, Mbwana Samatta.

The home side were dominating Algeria and had chances to further increase that lead.

But Algeria's Islam Slimani prevented his team from falling to a humiliating defeat to a country lying 109 places below them in the Fifa rankings.

He brought the North Africans back into the game with a goal in the 72nd minute, and made it 2-2 with a second just three minutes later.

The six most common toxic behaviors


1. Taking everything too personally. 


– People are toxic to be around when they believe that everything happening around them is a direct assault on them or is in some way all about them. The truth is that what people say and do to you is much more about them, than you. People’s reactions to you are about their filters, and their perspectives, wounds and experiences. Whether people think you’re amazing, or believe you’re the worst, again, it’s more about them. I’m not saying we should be narcissists and ignore all feedback. I am saying that so much hurt, disappointment and sadness in our lives comes from our taking things personally when it’s far more productive and healthy to let go of others’ good or bad opinion of you, and to operate with your own heart, intuition and wisdom as your guide.

2. Acting like you’re always a victim. 


– Another toxic behavior is persistent complaining that fuels your sense of victimization. Believing you’re a victim, that you have no power to exert and no power over the direction of your life, is a toxic stance that keeps you stuck. Working as a life coach with people who’ve suffered terrible trauma in their lives but found the courage to turn it all around, I know that we have access to far more power, authority, and influence over our lives than we initially believe. When you stop complaining, and refuse to see yourself as a hapless victim, you’ll find that you are more powerful than you realized, but only if you choose to accept this reality.

3. Obsessive negative thinking. 


– It’s very hard to be around people who refuse let go of negativity – when they dwell on and speak incessantly about the terrible things that could happen and have happened, the slights they’ve suffered, and the unfairness of life. These people stubbornly refuse to see the positive side of life and the positive lessons from what’s happening. Pessimism is one thing – but remaining perpetually locked in negative thoughts is another. Only seeing the negative, and operating from a view that everything is negative and against you, is a skewed way of thinking and living, and you can change that.

4. Lack of emotional self-control. 


– An inability to manage your emotions is toxic to everyone around you. We all know these people – those who explode in anger and tears over the smallest hiccup or problem. Yelling at the grocery store clerk for the long line, screaming at an employee for a small error she made, or losing it with your daughter for spilling juice on the floor. If you find that you’re overly emotional, losing it at every turn, you need some outside assistance to help you gain control over your emotions and understand what’s at the root of your emotionality. There’s more to it than what appears on the surface. An outside perspective – and a new kind of support – can work wonders.

5. Cruelty (or lacking empathy and compassion). 


– One of the most toxic behaviors – cruelty – stems from a total lack of empathy, concern or compassion for others. We see it every day online and in the media – people being devastatingly unkind and hurtful to others just because they can. They tear people down online in a cowardly way, using their anonymity as a shield. Cruelty, backstabbing, and hurting others for any reason is toxic, and it hurts you as well. If you find yourself backstabbing and tearing someone else down, stop in your tracks. Dig deep and find compassion in your heart, and realize that we’re all in this together.

6. Needing constant validation. 


– Last but not least, people who constantly strive for validation by others are exhausting to be around. Those men and women who get caught up in the need to prove their worth over and over and over, and constantly want to “win” over everyone around them, are unintentionally toxicand draining. Know this. Overly-attaching to how things have to look to others can wear you out and bring everyone else around you down. There is a bigger picture to your life, and it’s not about what you achieve in the eyes of the masses. It’s about the journey, the process, the path – what you’re learning, how you’re helping others learn too, and the growing process you allow yourself to participate in.
