Aonavyo CAG: Bajeti haitekelezeki kwa kuwa hatuangalii kwanza tulichonacho

MDHIBITI na Mkaguzi Mkuu wa Hesabu za Serikali (CAG), Profesa Juma Assad ameshauri upangaji wa bajeti upangwe kutokana na mapato yaliyopo.

Profesa Assad alitoa ushauri huo juzi alipotoa mada katika semina ya wabunge wa Kamati nne za Bunge iliyofanyika Dar es Salaam.

Alisema changamoto iliyopo sasa ni kwamba bajeti hupangwa kwa kuangalia matumizi au matakwa yaliyopo kabla ya kuangalia mapato.

“Kwa kuwa hatuangalii kwanza tulichonacho kabla ya kupanga bajeti matokeo yake bajeti inakuwa haitekelezeki,”alisema.

Alisema changamoto nyingine za bajeti ni pamoja na kupandisha bei wakati wa ununuzi wa bidhaa za umma, kushuka thamani ya shilingi na ubadilishaji wa matumzi ya fedha tofauti na bajeti ilivyoelekeza.

Mbali na kutoa elimu kwa wabunge ya jinsi ya kufuatilia utekelezaji wa Bajeti ya Serikali, CAG pia aliwataka wabunge kujiridhisha kabla ya kuchukua hatua kama kuna jambo lolote limetokea.

“Kama kuna kitu kimetokea tujenge utaratibu wa kuhoji kwanza kitu gani kimetokea, kwa nini kimetokea, athari zake na hatua zipi za kuchukua,”alisema.

Alisema kufanya hivyo kutaepusha migogoro kutokea na kwamba kwa uzoefu hatua hizo huwa hazifuatwi.

Akichangia katika semina hiyo, Mbunge wa Babati Vijijini,Jitu Son alisema kama semina hizo zingekuwa zinatolewa tangu zamani ni dhahiri wabunge wangekuwa wanafanya kazi zao kwa umahiri.

“Vilevile semina kama hizi zingekuwa zinafanyika kuanzia ngazi za halmashauri ili na wao wajifunze jinsi ya kuandaa bajeti hali itakayofanya mfumo mzima wa kuandaa bajeti kuanzia ngazi ya chini kuwa mzuri,”alisema.

Mbunge wa Viti Maalum, Felista Bura alitaka apatiwe ufafanuzi iwapo Ofisa Masuuli atabainika kuokoa fedha lakini kwa kutofuata utaratibu hatua zipi zichukuliwe.

Semina hiyo ilihusisha Kamati ya Bajeti, Kamati ya Hesabu za Serikali za Mitaa (LAAC) , Kamati ya Hesabu za Serikali (PAC) na Kamati ya Uwekezaji na Mitaji ya Umma (PIC).

Mishahara ya watumishi serikalini kusawazishwa iwe katika uwiano ndani ya miezi 15

SIKU chache baada ya Rais Dk. John Magufuli kutoa agizo la kupunguza mishahara mikubwa ya watendaji wa mashirika ya umma, hatimaye Serikali kupitia Bodi ya Mishahara imeanza kazi ya kufanya marekebisho hayo.

Hatua hiyo imekuja baada ya Rais Magufuli, kuagiza kushushwa kwa viwango vya mishahara ya viongozi wa mashirika ya umma ambapo wengine hulipwa Sh milioni 36 hadi milioni 40 kwa mwezi.

Akizungumza na MTANZANIA jana jijini Dar es Salaam, Waziri wa Nchi Ofisi ya Rais Menejimenti ya Utumishi wa Umma na Utawala Bora, Angellah Kairuki, alisema katika kipindi cha miezi 15 kuanzia sasa mishahara ya watumishi hao itapunguzwa na kuwa yenye uwiyano.

“Katika kuhakikisha agizo hilo linatekelezwa tunayo Bodi ya Mishahara ambayo ilianzishwa katika Serikali ya awamu ya nne na jukumu lake kubwa ni kufanya mapitio ya mishahara mbalimbali na kuhakikisha mishahara ya watumishi wa umma haipishani sana.

“Hatua ambazo tumeanza kuzitekeleza, tayari mamlaka zetu zimeanza kukutana kupitia Utumishi, Hazina na Msajili wa Hazina ili kuangalia namna ya kulitekeleza agizo hilo,” alisema Waziri Kairuki.

Alisema kutokana na hali hiyo mamlaka hizo hivi sasa zinaangalia mishahara ya taasisi mbalimbali na watumishi ili kuweza kubaini wale wanaolipwa zaidi ya Sh milioni 15 ni wangapi na itakatwa vipi.

Akizungumzia taasisi zinazozalisha kwa kiwango kikubwa na kuwa na uwezo wa kujiendesha, Waziri Kairuki, alisema Bodi ya Mishahara hivi sasa ina jukumu la kuangalia uwiano baina ya mtumishi wa umma na mashirika ya Serikali.

“Unakuta mtumishi wa taasisi X kiwango chake cha elimu, uzoefu, ujuzi, muda wa kuingia kazini pamoja na kazi anayoifanya ni sawa na ya mtumishi wa taasisi Y lakini unakuta mtumishi X analipwa mshahara mkubwa zaidi ya mara tano ya mtumishi Y jambo ambalo si haki katika utumishi,” alisema.

Kauli ya Magufuli

Machi 30, mwaka huu akiwa wilayani Chato, Mkuu huyo wa nchi, alisema kuna watu wanalipwa kiwango kikubwa cha mishahara na wamekuwa wakiishi kuliko hata malaika na sasa ni lazima washushwe ili waishi kama shetani.

Hatua ya Rais Magufuli, kupitisha panga na kuweka uwiyano wa mishahara kwa watendaji wa taasisi hizo unaelezwa kuwa utaisaidia uwajibikaji na usawa kwa watendaji.

Katika mkutano huo, Rais Magufuli, alishangazwa na baadhi ya bodi za wakurugenzi kushindwa kufanyakazi zao kwa mujibu wa sheria na badala yake wamekuwa na kazi ya kupandisha mishahara kwa watendaji.

Alisema anashangazwa na bodi hizo, kwani kila kukicha zimekuwa zikifanya kazi ya kupandisha mishahara pamoja na kufanya vikao nje ya nchi.

Alisema hivi sasa ameunda timu ya wataalamu ambayo imeanza kufanya kazi ya upunguzaji mishahara mikubwa kwa watendaji wakuu wa mashirika ya umma.

“Tena hawa wakurugenzi ndio wanaongoza kwa kulipwa fedha nyingi na hata kwenda kufanya vikao ulaya. Ninasema hapa kwamba suala hili litaanza kushughulikiwa katika bajeti hivi karibuni,” alisema Rais Magufuli.

Alisema tayari ameunda timu ya wataalamu ambayo inafanya kazi ya kupunguza mishahara hiyo na kufikia Sh milioni 15 kwa mwezi ili asipatikane Mtanzania anayelipwa zaidi ya kiwango hicho.

“Kuna watu wanaishi kuliko hata malaika lazima tuwashushe waishi kama shetani,” alisema Rais Magufuli.

Mishahara hewa

Katika hatua nyingine Waziri Kairuki alisema kuwa Serikali imeokoa Sh bilioni 3.95 katika kipindi cha kuanzia Machi Mosi hadi April 4 mwaka huu ambazo zingetumika kulipa mishahara ya watumishi hewa 4,317 nchini kote.

Alisema baada ya kupokea taarifa za awali za watumishi hewa kutoka kwa wakuu wa mikoa wamebaini kuwepo kwa upungufu katika taarifa hizo.

Alitaja upungufu huo kuwa ni pamoja na taarifa hizo kutokuwa na majina ya watumishi hao na waliotolewa kwenye malipo, sababu za kuondolewa pamoja na utambulisho.

Kutokana na dosari hizo wizara yake imewaagiza waajiri wote wawe wamewasilisha taarifa zao wiki hii ili kuwezesha kujua kwa usahihi wa watumishi ambao ni hewa na hatua ambazo zinachukuliwa.

Kambi ya upinzani yachambua

Kwa upande wake Waziri Kivuli na Msemaji Mkuu wa Kambi ya upinzani bungeni, Ofisi ya Rais Menejimenti ya Utumishi wa Umma na Utawala Bora, Ruth Mollel, alisema kuna tatizo ambalo linachangia kuwepo na kukua kwa tatizo la watumishi hewa katika utumishi wa umma.

Alisema tatizo hilo ni udhaifu mkubwa wa Tume ya Utumishi wa Umma ambayo ndio Tume Rekebu yenye jukumu la kuhakiki raslimali watu katika utumishi wote wa umma.

“Kwa mujibu wa taarifa rasmi zilizotolewa na Tume hiyo kwa Kamati ya Bunge ya Utawala na Serikali za Mitaa hivi karibuni, Tume hiyo inakabiliwa na matatizo makubwa yanayokwamisha utendaji kazi wake.

“Kwa mfano, Tume hiyo haina watumishi wa kada mbali mbali, vitendea kazi vya aina mbali mbali kama vile magari, kompyuta na vifaa vingine vya ofisi.

“Na katika mwaka huu wa fedha, Tume ya Utumishi wa Umma imepatiwa aslimia 9.3 ya fedha iliyotengwa kwenye bajeti kwa ajili yake.

“Katika mazingira haya, Tume hiyo imeshindwa kabisa kutekeleza majukumu ya kuhakiki watumishi wa umma katika maeneo mbali mbali ya nchi yetu.

“…tatizo lingine ambalo limechangia kuwepo au kuongezeka kwa watumishi hewa ni kutokuwepo kwa mfumo mmoja wa rasilmali watu unaojumuisha na kuunganisha mifumo mingine yote.

“Kwa mfano, kwa utaratibu wa sasa, mfumo wa kusajili uzazi na vifo uliopo chini ya RITA haujaunganishwa na mfumo wa utumishi wa umma wala na mifumo ya hifadhi ya jamii kama vile NSSF, LAPF, PSPF,” alisema.

Mollel, alisema si mara ya kwanza kwa Serikali kufanya uhakiki wa watumishi wa umma ili kuondoa watumishi hewa.

Alisema mwaka 1993 Serikali ilisimamisha kwa muda utaratibu wa kulipa mishahara ya watumishi wa umma kwa kuipitishia kwenye akaunti zao benki na badala yake Serikali ilihakiki kwa kuwalipa mishahara kupitia dirishani.

“Yaani malipo ya moja kwa moja kwa watumishi husika. Watumishi ambao hawakujitokeza kuchukua mishahara yao dirishani walihesabika kuwa ni ‘watumishi hewa’ na majina yao yaliondolewa katika ‘payroll.’ Hata hivyo uhakiki huo ulishindwa kuondoa tatizo la ‘watumishi hewa’ ambalo liliendelea kuwa sugu katika utumishi wa umma nchini,” alisema.

March 30: Parliamentary Committee on Broadcasting and Library suggested amendments to standing orders regarding media activities in the precincts of Parliament. The proposals, if adopted, would mean that requests to conduct media related activity would be handled by the Speaker of the Senate, or the Speaker of the National Assembly.

Parliamentary reporters are currently accredited by the Media Relations Office, who issue photo identity cards and grant access to the precincts of Parliament for the purposes of covering interviews and committee meetings. However, the new proposals would remove this mandate, and place it with the Speaker of the Senate or National Assembly. The proposals furthermore suggest that the Speakers themselves should ensure that media activities comply with standing orders, and that media activities serve an educational, cultural, or news purpose.

Under the proposals, cameramen and photographers would be required to report to the head of security before they could take photographs or videos, as well as requiring the prior permission of the person they are filming or photographing.

Violation of the new restrictions could result in denial of access during a sitting day, suspension of an individual's pass for a day, denial of access to the press gallery for three days for a media house or any other penalty the Speaker may deem fit. Repeated violations could result in a one-month suspension for the media house or suspension of the individual's pass for the same period

MKAZI wa Kimara, Abednego Mafuluka, ameiomba Serikali na jamii kumsaidia malazi ya watoto pacha wanne ambao mkewe, Sara Dimosa, amejifungua katika Hospitali ya Taifa Muhimbili (MNH).

Akizungumza jana na MTANZANIA Jumamosi katika wodi namba 10 ambako mkewe amelazwa, Mafuluka alisema amelazimika kuomba msaada kwa sababu watoto hao wanahitaji matunzo makubwa.

“Mke wangu amejifungua kwa upasuaji watoto wanne Aprili 4, mwaka huu na tuna watoto wengine wawili ambao Mungu ametujalia kwa maana hiyo sasa tuna jumla ya watoto sita na wote wanahitaji matunzo.

“Hawa wawili wakubwa wameanza shule. Tunakoishi tumepanga hivyo natafuta fedha za matunzo ya familia, pango la nyumba na sasa hawa mapacha wanahitaji maziwa ya ziada ili waweze kuishi maana ya mama yao hayatoshi na lazima nipate fedha kwa ajili ya kumnunulia chakula cha kutosha,” alisema Mafuluka.

Naye Sara, mama wa pacha hao alisema anamshukuru Mungu kwa kumuwezesha kujifungua watoto hao wakiwa salama.
“Nashukuru Mungu pia familia zetu zimepokea kwa furaha juu ya watoto wetu na wamekuwa wakitusaidia lakini hatuwezi kuwategemea kila siku. Nitahitaji na wasichana wa kunisaidia ambao nitatakiwa kuwalipa mshahara hivyo nalazimika kuomba jamii nayo itusaidie,” alisema Sara.

Kwa upande wake, nesi msaidizi wa wodi hiyo, Enessy Mwambene, alisema watoto hao wamezaliwa bila tatizo lolote na wanaendelea vizuri hadi hivi sasa.

“Muhimbili tunajisikia fahari kwa kufanikisha upasuaji huu umepita muda mrefu kupokea mama aliyejifungua watoto wanne, ni vyema wasamaria wema wakajitokeza kuisaidia familia hii kulea watoto wao kama inavyopaswa,” alisema.

Kasheshe itakayowakumba waliohusika kulipa, kupokea mishahara kwa hadaa

Sakata la mishahara ya watumishi hewa limechukua sura mpya baada ya serikali kuanza uchunguzi kuwabaini watumishi wote waliokuwa wakijilipa mishahara hiyo ili hatimaye wachukuliwe hatua.

Hivi karibuni, Rais John Magufuli alisema kuna mfanyakazi wa Mamlaka ya Mapato (TRA) ambaye anajilipa mishahara 17 ya wafanyakazi hewa.

Kwa mujibu wa Waziri wa Utumishi, Angela Kairuki, watumishi hewa wameshaisababishia serikali hasara Sh. bilioni 7.6 kuanzia Januari hadi Machi.

Habari za uhakika kutoka Ofisi ya Rais Tawala za Mikoa na Serikali za Mitaa (Tamisemi), zilieleza Nipashe kuwa tayari serikali imeanza uchunguzi wake kuwabaini maofisa utumishi waliokuwa wakitafuna fedha hizo ili wakamatwe.

Mtoa taarifa wetu alisema ukamataji huo utahusisha hazina, waliolipa, wafanyakazi wa wizarani na hata Halmashauri, na kwamba ni suala ambalo linahitaji upelelezi wa kitaalamu kuwabaini wahusika.

"Wale waliokuwa wakitajirika na mishahara hewa siku zao zinahesabika na uchunguzi unaofanyika si wa kawaida," kilisema chanzo chetu ambacho hakikupenda kutajwa jina.

"Muda si mrefu watakuwa wamejulikana na sheria itachukua mkondo wake, wapo watakaosimamishwa kazi, wengine watafukuzwa kabisa.

“Inasubiriwa ripoti ya nchi nzima, kwa sasa kazi ya uchunguzi iko katika hatua nzuri sana wale wote waliojilipa hizo fedha watajulikana na hawatakwepa maana ushahidi na vielelezo vya kuwatia hatiani vipo.”

Waziri Kairuki alipohojiwa kuhusiana na watumishi wake kuhusika katika ulipaji mishahara, alisema ni mapema kulizungumzia suala hilo.

Kwa upande wake, Waziri wa Nchi Ofisi ya Rais, Tawala za Mikoa na Serikali za Mitaa (Tamisemi), George Simbachawene, alisema watumishi ambao watabainika kuhusika kujilipa mishahara ya watumishi hewa watachukuliwa hatua kali.

Akizungumza na waandishi wa habari wiki hii Waziri Kairuki alisema wamebainika wafanyakazi hewa 7,795 kuanzia
Januari hadi Aprili mwaka huu ambao walishalipwa Sh. bilioni 7.6 tangu waache kuwa watumishi wa umma.

Alifafanua kuhusu watumishi hao kuwa kati ya watumishi hewa 4,317, walibainika ndani ya mwezi mmoja, watumishi 3,033 waligundulika mara tu baada ya Rais John Magufuli kutoa tamko Machi 15 kuhusiana na watumishi hewa.

Alisema baadhi ya watumishi hao walishafariki, wengine walishastaafu na wengine ni majina bandia yaliyongizwa na wajanja ili wawe wanachukua mishahara yao.

Alisema kutokana na hali hiyo, ofisi yake imeagiza maofisa tawala wote wa idara za serikali kufanya uhakiki na kujua huyo mtumishi hewa kituo chake cha kazi kilikuwa kipi, kazi alizokuwa anafanya, tarehe ya kuajiriwa, kufa au kustaafu ama kufukuzwa kazi.

One thing that makes men even more attractive...

One thing that makes men even more attractive than good looks or a sense of humour: altruism

That saying about nice guys may have to be changed.

A study, published in Evolutionary Psychology January 2016, found that 202 women, when presented with different men combined with knowledge of whether they had done a good deed or not, chose the altruistic man for a long-term relationship regardless of how physically attractive they were.

Granted, they tended to choose attractive, selfish men for a one night stand most times, but long term relationships were predominately for good Samaritans.

Meanwhile, another study published January 2015, showed that those who reported doing good deeds were more likely to say they were in a relationship the subsequent year, than those who did not.

Many previous studies have also shown that altruism is important to mate selection, while other traits such as humour and intelligence have been found to play a role too.

However, generosity was found to matter above all other traits by a 2013 psychological study especially in the case of long-term relationships.

Many of these studies have small sample sizes, and it's worth considering whether people behave the same in a laboratory with anonymous test subjects compared to your average pub, bar or dinner party.

But in short, the science says if you're looking for long-term love you probably need to think a bit about what you're giving.

Hakimu atengua ushindi wa CHADEMA Moshi iliyoshinda Uchaguzi Mkuu 2015

Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Moshi imetengua rasmi matokeo ya udiwani, Kata ya Boma Mbuzi wilayani hapa yaliyompa ushindi mgombea wa CHADEMA, Yudosi Tarimo katika Uchaguzi Mkuu uliofanyika Oktoba 25, mwaka jana.

Hukumu hiyo imetokana na kesi ya kupinga ushindi iliyofunguliwa na aliyekuwa mgombea wa kiti hicho kupitia CCM, Juma Raibu.

Hukumu hiyo iliyotolewa leo na Hakimu Mkazi, Pamela Meena ilisomwa na Hakimu Julieth Maole baada ya kusikiliza pande zote mbili na kuridhika na ushahidi uliotolewa na upande wa mlalamikaji.

Hakimu Maole alisema katika uchaguzi huo Tarimo alipata kura nyingi dhidi ya Raibu kwa tofauti ya kura moja.

Alisema katika vituo vinane vya kupigia kura vilivyokuwa katika kata hiyo, vilikuwa na tofauti ya matokeo ya udiwani wakati wa kuhesabiwa ikilinganishwa na idadi ya watu waliopiga kura.
"Kwa utofauti huo ulikuwapo ni wazi kwamba katika majumuisho ya kura yaliyompa ushindi mgombea wa CHADEMA haukuwa wake kutokana na mgombea wa CCM kuweza kuithibitishia Mahakama," alisema hakimu huyo.
Raibu alifungua kesi ya kupinga matokeo ya udiwani yaliyompa ushindi Tarimo wa kura 3,512 dhidi ya kura 3,511 alizopata yeye.

Akizungumza baada ya hukumu hiyo kusomwa, Tarimo alisema hajaridhika na atawasiliana na wanasheria wake ili waweze kukata rufaa kwa madai kuwa, katika uamuzi wake hakimu hakuzingatia ushahidi muhimu aliouwasilisha.

Baada ya hukumu kutolewa mamia ya wafuasi wa CCM waliokuwa wamefurika nje ya Mahakama hiyo walishangilia ushindi wa mgombea wao.
