During a signing ceremony in Dodoma on Thursday 16 June Tanzania, represented by Permanent Secretary Dr. Servacius Likwelile, and Sweden, represented by State Secretary Ulrika Modéer, renewed the long standing cooperation between Sweden and Tanzania. The agreement constitutes a framework for the development cooperation under the current Development Cooperation Strategy for Tanzania. A key objective for the cooperation is to create opportunities for higher standards of living for people living in poverty.

Swedish State Secretary for Development Cooperation, Ms Ulrika Modéer, visits Tanzania


The visit included meetings with civil society, media, Tanzanian Ministers, private sector and rural communities. She visited a company providing solar home systems to see the ongoing revolution in rural electrification, partly funded by Sweden, providing clean and affordable energy to rural poor. She also met with customers who has installed solar home systems, thereby saving money on e.g. kerosene. In Nkwenda village, outside of Dodoma, the State Secretary had indepth talks with beneficiaries of the Tanzania Social Action Fund (TASAF), also partly funded by Sweden, who described the improved livelihoods they have experienced by participating in the TASAF safety net. The Nkwenda villagers kindly offered Ms Modéer a rooster as a gift of appreciation.

In Dodoma Ulrika Modéer also meet with Ministry of Finance Permanent Secretary, Servacious Likwelile, for the singing of the renewed Sweden-Tanzania Development Agreement. She also had good meetings with the Minister of Energy and Minerals, Professor Sospeter Muhongo, with Minister of Union and Environment, Mr January Makamba and with Minister of Education, Ms Joyce Ndalichako. Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Augustine Mahiga, was on official duty on Zanzibar but he and the State Secretary nevertheless had a Telephone meeting.

In Dar es Salaam, Ms Ulrika Modéer also met with Swedish-supported Financial Sector
Deepening Trust that works to improve financial services for poor people. Overall, the State Secretary Ulrika Modéer was very pleased with the visit and impressed both by Tanzania’s own development efforts and by the contributions the Swedish Development Cooperation provides in the country.

Supporting the preparation of Tanzania’s second Five-Year Development Plan

The Government of Tanzania, through the Planning Commission in the Ministry of Finance and Planning (MOFP), launched the second Five-Year Development Plan (FYDP II) (2016/17-2021/22) in June 2016, focusing on the theme Nurturing Industrialisation for Economic Transformation and Human Development.

This study informed the preparation of FYDP II. It takes stock of Tanzania’s industrialisation and economic transformation record, policies and strategies, identifies activities for nurturing a semi-industrialised economy, introduces a range of measurable targets that could be considered for the next FYDP, presents a resource mobilisation framework and considers new ways to make industrialisation and economic transformation a reality.

The summary paper argues that Tanzania needs a radically different approach in the coming five years in order to seize the opportunities for industrialisation in a rapidly evolving environment and concludes that there are some early signs of structural transformation in Tanzania. The country needs to build on these by addressing generally agreed policy options, but in a different way compared to the past. It can best do this in practical terms by considering a number of collaborative projects that would illustrate how it can nudge the economy further onto a more transformational path in the following areas: infrastructure development, human capital development, tax policy reform, investment climate reform and practical industrial policy. But this requires learning and adaptive development throughout the duration of the plan – a new approach that is appropriate given the new challenges.

Industrialisation for economic transformation and human development

Tanzania has grown rapidly, at a rate of around 7% over the past decade, but it needs to overcome a range of economic and political constraints and engage in different ways of working if it is to industrialise more fully, transform the economy, create more good-quality jobs, reduce poverty faster, foster human development and improve resilience against shocks. Industrialisation has been one of the priorities in implementing Tanzania’s Vision 2025, but the share of manufacturing in gross domestic product (GDP) is falling and currently below 7%. The Government of Tanzania, through the Planning Commission in the Ministry of Finance and Planning (MOFP), has begun the process of preparing the second Five-Year Development Plan (FYDP II) (2016/17-2021/22) focusing on the theme Nurturing Industrialisation for Economic Transformation and Human Development.

This study informs the preparation of FYDP II. It takes stock of Tanzania’s industrialisation and economic transformation record, policies and strategies, identifies activities for nurturing a semi-industrialised economy, introduces a range of measurable targets that could be considered for the next FYDP, presents a resource mobilisation framework and considers new ways to make industrialisation and economic transformation a reality. We argue that Tanzania needs a radically different approach in the coming five years in order to seize the opportunities for industrialisation in a rapidly evolving environment.

Tanzania has long had a broad vision of becoming a diversified semi-industrialised economy with a substantial industrial sector. It has developed three five-year plans to guide this, with the first coming to an end this year and the second, aiming at nurturing an industrial economy for economic transformation and human development, being formulated with a view to starting later this year. A number of strategies have supported the implementation of these plans. These policy documents have highlighted desirable aspects, targets and factors behind industrialisation and economic transformation. Crucially, this paper argues it is essential to guide this process by tackling three questions:

What should be the overall objective for the next FYDP: Undertake an economic transformation diagnostic which describes transformation so far, examines why this has happened and identifies appropriate sectors and targets for future economic transformation.

What needs to be done to achieve the FYDP II: Formulate policies and a resource mobilisation strategy that remove constraints towards further economic transformation.

How to make it happen: Introduce new ways of working to implement, monitor, learn lessons and adapt the FYDP II.

The issues facing FYDP II are at some level similar, but at another level very different, from those facing its predecessor. Looking backwards, this plan can learn lessons from the implementation of the first FYDP, asking why some targets have been met but not others. The new plan needs to continue with unfinished business and tackle the economic, political and institutional constraints that have emerged. However, looking forward, this plan faces a new international environment, with rapidly growing African markets and rising Asian wages, which offer opportunities for Africa’s industrialisation. The discovery of offshore gas deposits, which, if commercially viable, could boost government revenue by the equivalent of 3% of nongas GDP and bring in up to $2 billion in export revenue (while also providing a source of fuel for the supply of electricity and cheaper energy), as well as other natural resources, provides further opportunities for industrialisation, although this also presents risks. Further, this plan relies more on the private sector to undertake much of the activity, with the government facilitating industrialisation rather than getting in the way. Domestic (public and private) financial resources are increasing in relative terms compared with international sources. A new government came to power at the end of 2015. It immediately began with a range of reforms. It should also respond to the challenges above and implement a new vision for economic transformation. It cannot afford to stand aloof and risk further deindustrialisation.
Introduction and approach to the study

The second Five Year Development Plan (FYDP II) for Tanzania is set for implementation in an international environment – characterised by rapidly growing African markets and rising Asian wages – that offers exciting opportunities for African industrialisation. Rebalancing in China, strong regional growth, and the potential for offshoring manufacturing jobs away from China, all provide opportunities for African countries to gain manufacturing market share, and countries such as Ethiopia have been proactive in looking to seize the opportunity. The approach adopted in FYDP II towards economic transformation and human development in Tanzania is likely to play an important role in determining whether or not the country is able to successfully seize the opportunities for industrialisation on offer in the rapidly evolving domestic and international environment.

The MOFP requested analytical support from the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) through its Supporting Economic Transformation (SET) Programme to inform the preparation of FYDP II, specifically in the following areas:
  1. Harvest available statistics to take stock of Tanzania’s industrialisation record, policies and strategies and subsequently discern niches and pre-requisites for nurturing and leap-frogging to a semi-industrialised economy. This involves prioritisation and sequencing of particular industries and subsectors (underpinned by sound economic analysis);
  2. Identify clear measurable targets for the next five-year plan by bench-marking with other middle-income countries (MICs);
  3. Identify substantive sources for resource mobilisation (domestic and foreign, public and private) and propose a strategy to tap such resources so as to ensure successful implementation of FYDP II; and
  4. Undertake a more in-depth look at the emerging natural gas sub-sector and its linkages with key sectors of the Tanzanian economy and propose key milestones to hasten the development of natural gas-based industries.
The approach by SET to undertake these tasks follows three integrated and linked steps: data analysis followed by analysis of policy options and discussion of policy implementation.

This report focuses on industrial development and economic transformation, what needs to be done and how to make it happen. But there are obvious, wider development implications. The Government of Tanzania decided to merge the FYDP and National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (NSGRP) planning frameworks (the Kiswahili term is MKUKUTA). The current priority FYDP focus on industrial development in economic transformation therefore also needs to be explained in terms of human development. Broad-based sectoral improvements (including agriculture and services) remain important for economic transformation and human development, but traditionally industrial development has a special relationship with human development over the longer term.

Industrial development has three types of linkages with human development. Firstly, it leads to wealth creation and greater incomes throughout the economy. As this report shows, productivity is higher in manufacturing than in agriculture or in many service sectors and it grows faster than in other sectors, making its contribution to aggregate productivity growth more important than its share in employment would suggest. Faster technology adoption and innovation raises aggregate labour productivity and reduces prices, which raises real incomes and profits that allows faster investment.

The rapid promotion of exports of manufacturing is also one of a few proven routes to sustained job creation, with more, and higher quality, jobs increasing aggregate incomes. When manufacturing is further linked with other sectors, for instance when it adds value by processing agricultural and other commodities, it creates multiplier linkages throughout the economy and, hence, induced effects on human development.

Secondly, manufacturing growth builds resilience against external shocks by diversification out of commodities, and manufacturing exports provide much needed foreign exchange. Resilience to shocks protects the livelihoods of the poorest. Thirdly, industrial development based on broad-based private sector development often goes hand in hand with increased tax revenues, which helps to provide the budget to promote human development.

As there are strong linkages between industrial development, economic transformation and human development over the mid to long term, the FYDP also relates well to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Industrialisation and productivity change are directly linked to the economic SDGs such as SDG 2 and 9 and indirectly to the social SDGs (SDGs 1-5). Further, Tanzania’s vision of natural resource based industrialisation depends strongly on the sustainable management of natural resources (water, energy, land etc.). The adoption of environmentally friendly techniques could be a win-win for Tanzania.

The chapters in the report are structured as follows. Chapter 2 reviews the policy context around industrialisation in Tanzania, which provides the background to this study on informing the design of the second five year plan from 2016 to 2021. It discusses, for example, the changing role of the public sector in promoting industrialisation.

Chapter 3 reviews Tanzania’s economic development progress in an historical context, where feasible with a focus on the last five years (although this is hampered by the availability of data), and with a section on industrialisation in particular. It also examines briefly the record of achievement on the targets in the first FYDP. Chapter 4 analyses Tanzania’s performance in an international context. This helps in the formulation of feasible targets in Chapter 10. Chapter 5 discusses industries that Tanzania could prioritise, using a range of new data techniques as well as existing analyses. We do not push one view or one sector, but identify three priority types of sectors (including light manufacturing) that most studies and analyses would agree on.

Chapter 6 identifies specific and common constraints across the promising sectors. Chapter 7 reviews general policy suggestions to overcome the common constraints discussed earlier. The emphasis is on identifying those policies that help Tanzania’s aim of economic transformation through industrialisation in particular.

Chapter 8 discusses a resource mobilisation framework that can be used to mobilise and use finance for achieving the objectives of the FYDP II and industrialisation in particular (Appendix I does this also in general). Chapter 9 brings together the priorities identified in Chapters 7 and 8 around five priorities. The rest of the Chapter analyses the challenges that Tanzania has faced in the past when implementing industrial policies and uses that analysis to suggest different ways of working around these priorities.

All of these chapters build up to Chapter 10 on target setting around the objectives of economic transformation which can reasonably be attained in the FYDP, targets for supportive policies and targets for supportive ways of working. These targets should be considered targets for initial discussion and require wider consultation. Overall, we argue that there are some early signs of structural transformation in Tanzania. Tanzania needs to build on these by addressing generally agreed policy options. It can best do this in practical terms by implementing a number of collaborative projects that would illustrate how it can nudge the economy further onto a more transformational path. Chapter 11 concludes. We argue that Tanzania needs a radically different approach in the coming five years in order to seize the opportunities for industrialisation in a rapidly evolving environment.

Former Ghana and Rwanda's Amavubi coach linked with job in Tanzania's Simba

Sellas Tetteh
Sellas Tetteh
GHANAsoccernet.com exclusively revealed yesterday that the former Black Satellites trainer Sellas Tetteh is set to secure a bumper coaching job with Tanzanian side Simba SC.

The former Liberty Professionals coach is expected to arrive in Dar es Salaam tonight to conclude talks with the Tanzanian outfit.

Tetteh, who has previously coached the Black Stars of Ghana and the Amavubi of Rwanda, was initially loaned to Sierra Leone for three months after the search for permanent coach was put on hold by the football association.

That initial loan expired last October after Leone Stars were eliminated in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers by Chad.

The Sierra Leonean Football Federation extended his stay with the national team on interim basis with the hope of signing him permanently.

But the celebrated coach has landed a deal in Tanzania that can make him the highest paid club coach in the country.

He is expected to sign a two-year deal with the Tanzanian giants.

Kunguni hospitalini...


ZIARA ya kushtukiza ya Kamati ya Siasa ya CCM ya wilaya ya Igunga mkoa wa Tabora katika hospitali ya wilaya hiyo, imeibua kitu kilichowaacha wengi midomo wazi. Kwamba katika wodi zake mbili, wamekutwa wadudu jamii ya chawa.

Kwa kiasi kikubwa, wadudu hao huishi kwa kufyonza damu na wana uwezo mkubwa wa kibaiolojia wa kujitengenezea kinga dhidi ya sumu kali. 

Mganga Mkuu wa Wilaya ya Igunga, Godfrey Mgongo alidaiwa kuwa katika wakati mgumu baada ya wadudu hao kubainika kusambaa katika wadi za hospitali hiyo, ikiwemo ya watoto.

Akijitetea mbele ya kamati hiyo iliyoongozwa na Mwenyekiti wa CCM wa wilaya hiyo, Costa Olomi na Katibu wake, Abdallah Kazwika, Mgongo alikiri kuwepo kwa kunguni wengi katika hospitali hiyo na kusema kuwa wamekuwa wakijitahidi kupuliza dawa, lakini kunguni wamekuwa wakijirudia mara kwa mara.

Aidha, Muuguzi Mkuu wa Wilaya, Shekha Ally alisema pamoja na juhudi zao za kupuliza dawa, dawa hiyo imekuwa haiui kunguni hao, ambapo kwa sasa wanatumia maji ya moto kwa kuyamwaga kwenye vitanda na magodoro.

WB approves additional $200 million for Tanzania

New Financing to Increase Incomes and Opportunities for 6.6 Million among Tanzania’s Extreme Poor


WASHINGTON D.C., June 16, 2016 – Over 6.6 million citizens falling in the extreme poor and food-insecure category will have their livelihoods improved with fresh support from the World Bank towards ongoing social safety programs implemented by the Tanzania Social Action Fund.

The additional financing of $200 million that was approved yesterday by the World Bank Board of Executive Directors towards the Productive Social Safety Nets project under which TASAF is financed, will support the Government of Tanzania’s recent scaling up of conditional cash transfers as well as the increased participation of target beneficiaries in new programs involving labor-intensive public works and savings and investments.

During the first phase of PSSN (2012-2016), the project has successfully created and consolidated the infrastructure needed to support a well-targeted social safety net system and strengthened the capacity of TASAF which has successfully made 15 consecutive Conditional Cash Transfer payments on a timely and regular basis since it started. Most recently in December 2015, the Project attained remarkable progress in reaching a targeted 1.1 million households, or approximately 6.6 million people among the extreme poor 15 percent of Tanzania’s total population of 45 million.

“The approval of the additional financing for the Productive Social Safety Net will consolidate the transformational impact that this project is having on the poorest households in Tanzania. This support from IDA, along with that of DFID, Sida, USAID and the UN agencies, will provide much needed income and opportunities to the poorest 6.6 million Tanzanians and eventually eliminate extreme poverty in the country,” says Bella Bird, World Bank Country Director for Tanzania, Burundi, Malawi and Somalia.

PSSN is part of a new generation of projects that the World Bank Group is implementing in the Africa region, targeting the extreme poor to create human capital to reduce poverty and inequality in the medium term.

The PSSN project has been under implementation since June 2012 with the goal of creating a comprehensive, efficient, well-targeted productive social safety net system for the poor and vulnerable among the Tanzanian population.

The implementation of its conditional cash transfer program is part of the Government’s efforts towards a more integrated approach of social service delivery. By investing simultaneously in the demand and supply of education, health and other services the program promotes basic education, maternal and infant health, and combat chronic malnutrition.

The additional financing by the World Bank’s International Development Association* (IDA) complements Tanzanian Government funds, as well as resources provided by development partners, including the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and will support the full expansion and consolidation of the social safety net system to contribute to the Government’s goal of reducing the incidence of extreme poverty.

“As household incomes and livelihoods improve, they have been able to increase their consumption of education and health services which are crucial for their eventual self-sustenance,” says Manuel Salazar, World Bank Lead Social Protection Specialist and Task Team Leader for the PSSN.

* The World Bank’s International Development Association (IDA), established in 1960, helps the world’s poorest countries by providing grants and low to zero-interest loans for projects and programs that boost economic growth, reduce poverty, and improve poor people’s lives. IDA is one of the largest sources of assistance for the world’s 77 poorest countries, 39 of which are in Africa. Resources from IDA bring positive change to the 1.3 billion people who live in IDA countries. Since 1960, IDA has supported development work in 112 countries. Annual commitments have averaged about $19 billion over the last three years, with about 50 percent going to Africa.

Waziri: Sitaki kumuona mfanyabiashara makutano na pembezoni mwa barabara...askari wakae hapo saa 24!

Waziri wa Nchi Ofisi ya Rais, Tawala za Mikoa na Serikali za Mitaa (TAMISEMI), Mhe. GeorgeSimbachawene (Mb), Katikati akifurahi jambo na Mkuu wa mkoa wa Dar es Salaam , Paul Makonda na wakuu wa Wilaya ya za Dar es Salaam, Ally Salum Hapi wa Kinondoni, Raymond Mushi, Ilala na Sophia Mjema wa Temeke. (picha: Jiji Letu blog)

WAZIRI wa Nchi katika Ofisi ya Rais, Tawala za Mikoa na Serikali za Mitaa (Tamisemi), George Simbachawene amemuagiza Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam, Paul Makonda kushirikiana na viongozi wa Mkoa kuhakikisha kuanzia leo hakuna mfanyabiashara atakayefanya biashara katika maeneo ya ‘mataa’.

Alimtaka pia kuhakikisha anawaondoa ombaomba wote waliopo katika makutano hayo na katikati ya jiji. Simbachawene alitoa agizo hilo jana alipofanya ziara katika Mradi wa Mabasi yaendayo Haraka (UDART).

Alisema lengo la kuwaondoa wafanyabiashara na ombaomba hao ni kutaka kulifanya Jiji la Dar es Salaam kuwa na mwonekano mzuri.

“Kuanzia kesho (leo) sitaki kumuona mfanyabiashara katika maeneo hayo ya makutano na pembezoni mwa barabara watafutieni utaratibu ambao utawafanya wakae maeneo ambayo ni tofauti,” alisema na kuongeza kuwa, anataka katika maeneo hayo kuwepo na askari saa 24 ambao watahakikisha hakuna mfanyabiashara atakayefanya biashara baada ya kuondolewa.

“Acheni kukamata mama ntilie nataka askari hao watumike kuwakamata wafanyabiashara hao.., nataka askari hao wakae hapo saa 24,” alisema Simbachawene na kuongeza kuwa uchafuzi wa mazingira katika maeneo ya jiji kunachangiwa na uwepo wa biashara zinazofanywa katika mazingira ambayo sio rasmi.

Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam, Paul Makonda alimuahidi Waziri huyo kuwa watatekeleza maagizo yote na kuahidi kuanza operesheni hiyo leo kama alivyomuelekeza. Simbachawene pia amewataka wamiliki wa vyombo vya usafiri kufuata sheria na kuacha kutumia barabara za mwendo kasi hususani pikipiki na maguta.

Alisema ili pia kukabiliana na changamoto ya foleni, serikali imejipanga kusimamia awamu ya pili ya utekelezaji wa barabara za mabasi yaendayo haraka inayotarajiwa kuanza mwakani. Simbachawene alisema tayari wameshafanya tathmini na utatumia miaka miwili hadi kukamilika kwake pia wapo katika mchakato wa kumtafuta mkandarasi kwa ajili ya ujenzi.

“Hii awamu ya pili itaanzia katika barabara ya Sokoine kuelekea barabara ya Kilwa hadi Mbagala na kutakuwa na barabara za juu katika makutano ya barabara ya Kawawa na Nyerere,” aliongeza. [HabariLeo]

Bunge: Wabunge wengine 2 CHADEMA wasimamishwa

WAKATI wabunge wa UKAWA wakisusa kuingia bungeni, huku wakivumilia kukatwa posho, Naibu Spika, Dk Tulia Ackson, ambaye ndiye anayedaiwa kuwa sababu ya kususa kwao, amewasimamisha kazi wabunge wawili wa viti maalumu CHADEMA kwa kosa la kusema uongo bungeni.

Wabunge hao ni Susan Lyimo aliyesimamishwa vikao vitano na Anatropia Theonest, aliyesimamishwa vikao vitatu kuanzia jana, ambao walifikishwa katika Kamati ya Haki, Maadili na Madaraka ya Bunge kujitetea kabla ya kukutwa na hatia.

Dk Tulia alitangaza hatua hiyo bungeni jana, baada ya Kamati hiyo kuwasilisha taarifa ya kuwakuta na hatia ambapo pia ilieleza kuwa Suzan alishindwa kuthibitisha ukweli wa kauli yake, huku Anatropia akikiri kosa la kusema uongo bungeni.

Adhabu hizo kwa mujibu wa taarifa ya Kamati ya Haki, Maadili na Madaraka ya Bunge, zimeelezwa kuzingatia masharti ya Kanuni ya 75, ambapo wabunge hao wamezuiwa kuingia sehemu yoyote ya ukumbi wa Bunge na maeneo ya Bunge, ambapo pia watalipwa nusu mshahara na nusu posho zinazoambatana na mshahara wake.

Susan Lyimo
Suzan 

Akiwasilisha taarifa iliyowatia hatiani wabunge hao, Makamu Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya Haki, Maadili na Madaraka ya Bunge, Mbunge wa Tabora Kaskazini, Almas Maige (CCM), alieleza kauli ya Susan iliyomtia matatani.

Mei 11 mwaka huu Suzan alipokuwa akichangia mjadala wa Hotuba ya Wizara ya Afya, Maendeleo ya Jamii, Jinsia, Wazee na Watoto, alidai kuwa Serikali imenunua magari 777 ya `washawasha’, ambapo alidai kuwa ni magari 50 tu yaliyotumika kwenye uchaguzi.

Katika mahesabu yake yaliyonukuliwa na taarifa rasmi za Bunge, Susan alisema katika ununuzi huo Serikali ilitumia zaidi ya Sh bilioni 420, ambapo kama Serikali ingetaka kutumia fedha hizo kununua magari ya wagonjwa kila kata nchini, ambazo alisema ziko kata 3,990 ingepata moja huku akishangiliwa na wabunge wenzake wa Ukawa.

Baada ya kusema hivyo, Naibu Waziri wa Mambo ya Ndani, Yusuph Hamad Masauni siku iliyofuata aliomba mwongozo na kusema taarifa alizonazo ni kwamba magari ya ‘washawasha’ yaliyonunuliwa, yalikuwa 32 na si 777 yaliyotajwa na Susan.

Taarifa hiyo imeonesha kuwa, Susan alipopewa nafasi ya kufuta maneno hayo na Spika au atoe uthibitisho, mbunge huyo wa Viti Maalumu alionekana kuwa tayari kuthibitisha na kwa kuwa uthibitisho wake ulionekana ungeweza kuchukua muda mrefu, alitakiwa aupeleke katika kamati hiyo.

Ushahidi wa MwanaHalisi Alipoitwa kwenye kamati hiyo, Susan alipeleka ushahidi aliodai ni wa Mwananchi Online, taarifa rasmi za Bunge kuhusu majibu ya Masauni alipojibu swali la nyongeza kuhusu ununuzi wa magari ya ‘washawasha’, taarifa za mtandao wa Alibaba ambako alidai kuulizia bei ya magari ya wagonjwa na kielelezo kutoka Habarikablog.blogspot.com.

Hata hivyo kamati hiyo ilipofanya uchambuzi wa vielelezo hivyo, Maige alisema haikukuta kielelezo cha Mwananchi Online, bali cha Mwanahalisi Online na pia kielelezo cha Habarikablog. blogspot.com hakikuainishwa.

Katika taarifa rasmi za Bunge kuhusu majibu ya Masauni, ilibainika yalieleza kuwa Serikali imenunua magari 777 ya Polisi na kati ya hayo, magari 32 tu ndiyo ya ‘washawasha’. Kwa kuwa hakuna kielelezo hata kimoja kilichothibitisha kuwa Serikali imenunua magari hayo 777 ya ‘washawasha’, kamati hiyo ikamtia hatiani kwa kusema uongo bungeni.

Anatropia

Anatropia yeye alishtakiwa kwa Spika na Waziri wa Ardhi, Nyumba na Maendeleo ya Makazi, William Lukuvi, kwa barua kuwa Februari 3 mwaka huu, mbunge huyo akichangia hoja kuhusu Kamati ya Mipango, alisema kuwa Waziri huyo mwaka 2011 alipokuwa Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam, alipora viwanja.

Mbunge huyo wa Chadema, alidai bungeni kuwa Lukuvi akiwa Mkuu wa Mkoa mwaka 2011, alihusika na uporaji wa maeneo yaliyopo Tegeta, ambayo walipewa wananchi waliokuwa wakiishi mabondeni, wakiwemo wa Jimbo la Segerea na wananchi wa Ilala, ambao sasa wanataka maeneo yao huku wakidai kuwa Lukuvi alihusika kuyapora.

Lukuvi katika barua hiyo, aliomba tu Anatropia afute kauli yake airekebishe, kwa kuwa mwaka 2011, alikuwa Waziri wa Nchi, Ofisi ya Waziri Mkuu, Sera, Uratibu na Bunge na si Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam na wala hakuhusika na tuhuma hizo.

Hata alipoitwa katika Kamati hiyo, Lukuvi alisema tuhuma zilizotolewa na Anatropia, si tu zilikuwa za uongo, bali pia zimemfedhehesha kwa kumhusisha na uporaji wa viwanja vya watu wanyonge.

Akiri ni muongo

Alipoitwa Anatropia mbele ya Kamati, Maige alisema mbunge huyo wa CHADEMA; “alikiri mbele ya Kamati kuwa alisema uongo bungeni kwa kuwa ni kweli Lukuvi hakuwa Mkuu wa Mkoa mwaka 2011, hivyo asingeweza kuhusika na uporaji wa viwanja vya waathirika wa mafuriko.”

Anatropia ameelezwa katika taarifa hiyo kuwa, alisema kwamba iwapo angeambiwa jambo hilo akiwa bungeni, kuwa kauli aliyokuwa ameitoa siku hiyo ilikuwa ya uongo angeifuta.

“Alionesha kusikitika kuona suala hili limefika Kamati ya Maadili, ambalo lingeweza kumalizika ndani ya ukumbi wa Bunge, ikiwa angepata fursa,” alisema Maige na kuongeza kuwa Kamati ilimtia hatiani mbunge huyo.

Ufafanuzi wa Dk Tulia Akifafanua adhabu hizo, Dk Tulia alisema kwa kuwa wabunge hao walionesha kuwa wangeweza kuthibitisha, ndio maana walipelekwa katika Kamati hiyo kwenda kutoa ushahidi na kwa kuwa wameshindwa, Spika anaweza kutoa adhabu ya kumsimamisha mbunge vikao visivyozidi vitano, hivyo mapendekezo ya kamati hiyo, ameyaafiki.

Kutokana na adhabu hiyo, sasa Suzan na Anatropia, wanafikisha idadi ya wabunge wanane waliosimamishwa bungeni kwa kukiuka kanuni.

Wengine ni Mbunge wa Kigoma Mjini, Zitto Kabwe (ACT), Mbunge wa Arusha Mjini, Godbless Lema, Mbunge wa Tarime Vijijini, John Heche, Mbunge wa Kawe, Halima Mdee, Mbunge wa Babati Mjini, Pauline Gekul na Mbunge wa Bunda Mjini, Esther Bulaya, wote wa CHADEMA. [HabariLeo]

Rais ndiye anaamua fedha zinazorudi zitumikeje - Waziri

FEDHA zinazobaki kutokana na kubana matumizi yanayofanywa na taasisi mbalimbali za umma na kisha kurudishwa serikalini, zitatumika kwa namna Rais John Magufuli atakavyoona inafaa, Bunge limeambiwa.

Kauli hiyo ilitolewa jana mjini Dodoma na Naibu Waziri wa Nchi, Ofisi ya Rais, Tawala za Mikoa na Serikali za Mitaa (TAMISEMI), Selemani Jaffo wakati akijibu swali la nyongeza la Mbunge wa Nsimbo, Richard Mbogo (CCM).

Alisema zitakuwa zinaelekezwa kwenye matatizo na kero zinazohitaji fedha kwa kuwa kero bado ni nyingi.

Mbunge huyo alikuwa ameomba kama inawezekana, fedha zinazorejeshwa serikalini baada ya kumalizika kwa bajeti ya sasa kutokana na taasisi za umma kubana matumizi zielekezwe katika ujenzi wa vituo vya afya ikiwa ni pamoja na vilivyo katika jimbo lake.

“Kwanza ninamshukuru sana Rais John Magufuli kwani uongozi wake ndio umesaidia hali hii ya taasisi kubana matumizi hadi fedha kurejeshwa serikalini. Lakini Rais ataangalia ni nini cha kuzifanyia pesa hizo kwa sababu matatizo yanayowakabili wananchi wetu ni mengi,” alisema. [HabariLeo]

Aonya 'vimemo' vinavyopelekwa kuwaombea msamaha watumishi wazembe

NAIBU Waziri wa Nchi, Ofisi ya Rais, Tawala za Mikoa na Serikali za Mitaa (TAMISEMI), Selemani Jaffo, amewataka wabunge kuacha kuwapelekea viongozi ‘vimemo’ vya kuwaombea msamaha watumishi wasio na maadili wa hospitali mbalimbali nchini watakapokuwa wanatumbuliwa.

Alitoa angalizo hilo jana wakati akijibu swali la Mbunge wa Masasi Mjini (CCM), Rashid Chuachua, aliyetaka kujua hatua zilizochukuliwa dhidi ya watendaji wa Hospitali ya Wilaya ya Masasi ya Mkomaindo kutokana na ubadhirifu wa dawa uliofanywa mwaka 2014.

Alisema wizara yake iko katika uchunguzi wa kina kuhusu madudu mbalimbali yaliyofanywa katika maeneo mbalimbali nchini yanayohusiana na wizara hiyo zikiwemo hospitali na muda si mrefu wahusika wataanza kuchukuliwa hatua.
“Watendaji wasiofaa tutawashughulikia na ninawaomba wabunge msituletee vimemo kwamba huyu ni ndugu yangu au hivi wakati tutakapoanza kuchukua hatua,” alisema Naibu Waziri huyo.
Kuhusu kupandisha zahanati kuwa vituo vya afya, Jaffo aliishauri Halmashauri ya Masasi kuanzisha mchakato huo kupitia vikao na kuwasilisha mapendekezo hayo Wizara ya Afya, Maendeleo ya Jamii, Jinsia, Wazee na Watoto ili kupata kibali.

jetBlue tip: Where are the quietest seats on a plane and more leg room



If you’re looking for a quietest seat on a plane, according to a JetBlue pilot, there’s less noise when you’re sitting forward on the wings. In most planes, the engines are located under the wings.

For a more peaceful ride, find a seat in the front of the cabin. If motion sickness is a problem for you, the front of the plane is also a good spot to sit, but you may also want to sit near the middle, where the wing is located. According to experts, this is the calmest area of the plane.

This is what makes a great seat according to Independent Traveler
Exit rows, aisle or window seats, and seats close to the front of the plane are typically considered the best. On a short business trip, you might want an aisle seat near the front of the plane so you can debark as quickly as possible on arrival. On an overnight flight, you might prefer a window seat so you can rest your head. Nervous fliers may want to sit over the wing, where there is less turbulence.
Exit row seats usually offer a bit more legroom, but they're not appropriate if you're traveling as a family. Children are not permitted to sit in exit rows, and by U.S. law infants are not allowed in the rows immediately behind or in front of an exit row either.

Many fliers also like "bulkhead seats," which are the seats directly behind the physical barriers (such as walls, curtains or screens) that separate different parts of the plane. Because there are no seats in front of you, you won't get stuck with another passenger reclining into your lap -- and you often get some extra legroom as well.

But be careful: Not all "bulkhead" rows are created equal. On some planes the first bulkhead row may be cramped and uncomfortable. Also, keep in mind that you won't have a spot to stow a personal item under the seat in front of you for easy access. For more information, go to SeatGuru.com, where you can check out seat maps for nearly every type of plane on every major airline.


According to MarketWatch
Pick airlines that offer the most legroom
Nearly four in 10 passengers say that giving more legroom is the No. 1 thing airlines should do to improve the in-flight experience, according to a survey byTripAdvisor.com. Jamie Counter, the senior director of flights for TripAdvisor.com, notes that discount airline JetBlue typically offers about 34 inches of legroom in economy class, which is “very generous” (though he adds that the airline is reducing its legroom offerings on some planes), while Spirit typically offers about six inches less than that. Most other domestic airlines, he says, fall somewhere between 32 and 33 inches of legroom, which is now “on the high side given the proliferation of slim-line seats.” Seat width tends to have less variation: In the economy cabin, it usually ranges from 17.2 inches to 18 inches, Counter says.

Know which planes have the most space

Legroom differs not only between airlines but within the same airline, as specific jets have different configurations. Counter points out that Airbus planes tend to have more interior space to create more legroom, though that doesn’t mean the airline has necessarily configured them with more legroom. That’s why experts recommend that before booking a flight, consumers check out SeatGuru.com, which shows the specific jet and how much legroom it has in each class.

Read and learn! Business email compromise: The 3.1 billion dollar scam

Pertinent information released for public consumption by the FBI 


This Public Service Announcement (PSA) is an update to the Business E-mail Compromise (BEC) information provided in Public Service Announcements (PSA) 1-012215-PSA and 1-082715a-PSA. This PSA includes new Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) complaint information and updated statistical data.

DEFINITION


BEC is defined as a sophisticated scam targeting businesses working with foreign suppliers and/or businesses that regularly perform wire transfer payments. The scam is carried out by compromising legitimate business e-mail accounts through social engineering or computer intrusion techniques to conduct unauthorized transfers of funds.

Most victims report using wire transfers as a common method of transferring funds for business purposes; however, some victims report using checks as a common method of payment. The fraudsters will use the method most commonly associated with their victim’s normal business practices.

STATISTICAL DATA


The BEC scam continues to grow, evolve, and target businesses of all sizes. Since January 2015, there has been a 1,300% increase in identified exposed losses1. The scam has been reported by victims in all 50 states and in 100 countries. Reports indicate that fraudulent transfers have been sent to 79 countries with the majority going to Asian banks located within China and Hong Kong.
The following BEC statistics were reported to the IC3 and are derived from multiple sources to include IC3 victim complaints and complaints filed with international law enforcement agencies and financial institutions:

Domestic and International victims:22,143
Combined exposed dollar loss:$3,086,250,090

The following BEC statistics were reported in victim complaints to the IC3 from October 2013 to May 2016:
Domestic and International victims:15,668
Combined exposed dollar loss:$1,053,849,635
  • Total U.S. victims:
14,032
  • Total U.S. exposed dollar loss:
$960,708,616
  • Total non-U.S. victims:
1,636
  • Total non-U.S. exposed dollar loss:
$93,141,019


BACKGROUND


The victims of the BEC scam range from small businesses to large corporations. The victims continue to deal in a wide variety of goods and services, indicating a specific sector does not seem to be targeted.

It is largely unknown how victims are selected; however, the subjects monitor and study their selected victims using social engineering techniques prior to initiating the BEC scam. The subjects are able to accurately identify the individuals and protocols necessary to perform wire transfers within a specific business environment. Victims may also first receive “phishing” e-mails requesting additional details regarding the business or individual being targeted (name, travel dates, etc.).

Some individuals reported being a victim of various Scareware or Ransomware cyber intrusions immediately preceding a BEC incident. These intrusions can initially be facilitated through a phishing scam in which a victim receives an e-mail from a seemingly legitimate source that contains a malicious link. The victim clicks on the link, and it downloads malware, allowing the actor(s) unfettered access to the victim’s data, including passwords or financial account information.

The BEC scam is linked to other forms of fraud, including but not limited to: romance, lottery, employment, and rental scams. The victims of these scams are usually U.S. based and may be recruited as unwitting money mules.2 The mules receive the fraudulent funds in their personal accounts and are then directed by the subject to quickly transfer the funds to another bank account, usually outside the U.S. Upon direction, mules may open bank accounts and/or shell corporations to further the fraud scheme.

SCENARIOS OF BEC


Based on IC3 complaints and other complaint data3 , there are five main scenarios by which this scam is perpetrated. BEC victims recently reported a new scenario (Data Theft) involving the receipt of fraudulent e-mails requesting either all Wage or Tax Statement (W-2) forms or a company list of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). This scenario does not always involve the request for a wire transfer; however, the business executive’s e-mail is compromised, either spoofed or hacked, and the victims are targeted in a similar manner as described in Scenario 2 of the BEC scam.

Scenario 5 (New): Data Theft


Fraudulent requests are sent utilizing a business executive’s compromised e-mail. The entity in the business organization responsible for W-2s or maintaining PII, such as the human resources department, bookkeeping, or auditing section, have frequently been identified as the targeted recipient of the fraudulent request for W-2 and/or PII. Some of these incidents are isolated and some occur prior to a fraudulent wire transfer request. Victims report they have fallen for this new BEC scenario, even if they were able to successfully identify and avoid the traditional BEC incident. The data theft scenario (Scenario 5) of the BEC first appeared just prior to the 2016 tax season.

Scenario 1: Business Working With a Foreign Supplier


A business, which often has a long standing relationship with a supplier, is requested to wire funds for invoice payment to an alternate, fraudulent account. The request may be made via telephone, facsimile, or e-mail. If an e-mail is received, the subject will spoof the e-mail request so it appears very similar to a legitimate account and would take very close scrutiny to determine it was fraudulent. Likewise, if a facsimile or telephone call is received, it will closely mimic a legitimate request. This particular scenario has also been referred to as “The Bogus Invoice Scheme,” “The Supplier Swindle,” and “Invoice Modification Scheme.”

Scenario 2: Business [Executive] Receiving or Initiating a Request for a Wire Transfer


The e-mail accounts of high-level business executives (CFO, CTO, etc) are compromised. The account may be spoofed or hacked. A request for a wire transfer from the compromised account is made to a second employee within the company who is normally responsible for processing these requests. In some instances, a request for a wire transfer from the compromised account is sent directly to the financial institution with instructions to urgently send funds to bank “X” for reason “Y.” This particular scenario has also been referred to as “CEO Fraud,” “Business Executive Scam,” “Masquerading,” and “Financial Industry Wire Frauds.”

Scenario 3: Business Contacts Receiving Fraudulent Correspondence through Compromised E-mail


An employee of a business has his/her personal e-mail hacked. This personal e-mail may be used for both personal and business communications. Requests for invoice payments to fraudster-controlled bank accounts are sent from this employee’s personal e-mail to multiple vendors identified from this employee’s contact list. The business may not become aware of the fraudulent requests until that business is contacted by a vendor to follow up on the status of an invoice payment.

Scenario 4: Business Executive and Attorney Impersonation


Victims report being contacted by fraudsters, who typically identify themselves as lawyers or representatives of law firms and claim to be handling confidential or time-sensitive matters. This contact may be made via either phone or e-mail. Victims may be pressured by the fraudster to act quickly or secretly in handling the transfer of funds. This type of BEC scam may occur at the end of the business day or work week and be timed to coincide with the close of business of international financial institutions.

CHARACTERISTICS OF BEC COMPLAINTS


The IC3 has noted the following characteristics of BEC complaints:
  • Businesses and associated personnel using open source e-mail accounts are predominantly targeted.
  • Individuals responsible for handling wire transfers within a specific business are targeted.
  • Spoofed e-mails very closely mimic a legitimate e-mail request.
  • Hacked e-mails often occur with a personal e-mail account.
  • Fraudulent e-mail requests for a wire transfer are well-worded, specific to the business being victimized, and do not raise suspicions to the legitimacy of the request.
  • The phrases “code to admin expenses” or “urgent wire transfer” were reported by victims in some of the fraudulent e-mail requests.
  • The amount of the fraudulent wire transfer request is business-specific; therefore, dollar amounts requested are similar to normal business transaction amounts so as to not raise doubt.
  • Fraudulent e-mails received have coincided with business travel dates for executives whose e-mails were spoofed.
  • Victims report that IP addresses frequently trace back to free domain registrars.


SUGGESTIONS FOR PROTECTION AND BEST PRACTICES


Businesses with an increased awareness and understanding of the BEC scam are more likely to recognize when they have been targeted by BEC fraudsters, and are therefore more likely to avoid falling victim and sending fraudulent payments.

Businesses that deploy robust internal prevention techniques at all levels (especially targeting front line employees who may be the recipients of initial phishing attempts), have proven highly successful in recognizing and deflecting BEC attempts.

Some financial institutions reported holding their customer requests for international wire transfers for an additional period of time, to verify the legitimacy of the request.

The following is a compilation of self protection strategies provided in the BEC PSAs from 2015.
  • Avoid free web-based e-mail accounts: Establish a company domain name and use it to establish company e-mail accounts in lieu of free, web-based accounts.
  • Be careful what is posted to social media and company websites, especially job duties/descriptions, hierarchal information, and out of office details.
  • Be suspicious of requests for secrecy or pressure to take action quickly.
  • Consider additional IT and financial security procedures, including the implementation of a 2-step verification process. For example -
    • Out of Band Communication: Establish other communication channels, such as telephone calls, to verify significant transactions. Arrange this second-factor authentication early in the relationship and outside the e-mail environment to avoid interception by a hacker.
    • Digital Signatures: Both entities on each side of a transaction should utilize digital signatures. This will not work with web-based e-mail accounts. Additionally, some countries ban or limit the use of encryption.
    • Delete Spam: Immediately report and delete unsolicited e-mail (spam) from unknown parties. DO NOT open spam e-mail, click on links in the e-mail, or open attachments. These often contain malware that will give subjects access to your computer system.
    • Forward vs. Reply: Do not use the “Reply” option to respond to any business e-mails. Instead, use the “Forward” option and either type in the correct e-mail address or select it from the e-mail address book to ensure the intended recipient’s correct e-mail address is used.
    • Consider implementing Two Factor Authentication (TFA) for corporate e-mail accounts. TFA mitigates the threat of a subject gaining access to an employee’s e-mail account through a compromised password by requiring two pieces of information to login: something you know (a password) and something you have (such as a dynamic PIN or code).
Significant Changes: Beware of sudden changes in business practices. For example, if a current business contact suddenly asks to be contacted via their personal e-mail address when all previous official correspondence has been through company e-mail, the request could be fraudulent. Always verify via other channels that you are still communicating with your legitimate business partner.
  • Create intrusion detection system rules that flag e-mails with extensions that are similar to company e-mail. For example, legitimate e-mail of abc_company.com would flag fraudulent e-mail of abc-company.com.
  • Register all company domains that are slightly different than the actual company domain.
  • Verify changes in vendor payment location by adding additional two-factor authentication such as having a secondary sign-off by company personnel.
  • Confirm requests for transfers of funds. When using phone verification as part of the two-factor authentication, use previously known numbers, not the numbers provided in the e-mail request.
  • Know the habits of your customers, including the details of, reasons behind, and amount of payments.
  • Carefully scrutinize all e-mail requests for transfers of funds to determine if the requests are out of the ordinary.
Additional information is publicly available on the United States Department of Justice website www.justice.gov publication entitled “Best Practices for Victim Response and Reporting of Cyber Incidents”.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE A VICTIM


If funds are transferred to a fraudulent account, it is important to act quickly:
  • Contact your financial institution immediately upon discovering the fraudulent transfer
  • Request that your financial institution contact the corresponding financial institution where the fraudulent transfer was sent
  • Contact your local Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) office if the wire is recent. The FBI, working with the United States Department of Treasury Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, might be able to help return or freeze the funds
  • File a complaint, regardless of dollar loss, at www.IC3.gov
When contacting law enforcement or filing a complaint with the IC3, it is important to identify your incident as “BEC”, provide a brief description of the incident, and consider providing the following financial information:
  • Originating4 Name:
  • Originating Location:
  • Originating Bank Name:
  • Originating Bank Account Number:
  • Recipient5 Name:
  • Recipient Bank Name:
  • Recipient Bank Account Number:
  • Recipient Bank Location (if available):
  • Intermediary Bank Name (if available):
  • SWIFT Number:
  • Date:
  • Amount of Transaction:
  • Additional Information (if available) - including “FFC”- For Further Credit; “FAV” – In Favor Of:

Filing a complaint with IC3


Victims should always file a complaint regardless of dollar loss or timing of incident at www.IC3.gov and, in addition to the financial information, provide the following descriptors:
  • IP and/or e-mail address of fraudulent e-mail
  • Date and time of incidents
  • Incorrectly formatted invoices or letterheads
  • Requests for secrecy or immediate action
  • Unusual timing, requests, or wording of the fraudulent phone calls or e-mails
  • Phone numbers of the fraudulent phone calls
  • Description of any phone contact to include frequency and timing of calls
  • Foreign accents of the callers
  • Poorly worded or grammatically incorrect e-mails
  • Reports of any previous e-mail phishing activity

1. Exposed dollar loss includes actual and attempted loss in United States dollars.

3.Multiple source complaint data, not limited to IC3, describing the BEC scam is dated as far back as 2009.  
4.The term "Originating" is synonymous with the term "Victim".  
5.The term "Recipient" is synonymous with the term "Beneficiary"
