Article by retired Pres. Jakaya Kikwete: How to Transform an Education System

Jakaya Kikwete
Jakaya Kikwete
DAR ES SALAAM – A week, it is said, is a long time in politics. That was certainly the case at the end of last month, when, in a single day, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, its prime minister, David Cameron, announced his resignation, and Britain and Europe, not to mention global markets, were thrown into turmoil.

When it comes to education, by contrast, a week can be the blink of an eye. Change happens over years, if not decades – and perhaps not even then. But, if successful, the establishment of a well-functioning education system can change a country’s face – and redefine its fate.

That is what happened in my country, Tanzania. From 2000 to 2009, primary-school enrollment rates in Tanzania more than doubled, from just over four million pupils to 8.5 million, or 96% of all primary-school-age children. In other words, at the primary level, Tanzania now boasts near-full enrollment.

Similar progress can be seen at the secondary level. Indeed, over the same nine-year period, the number of secondary schools in Tanzania more than quadrupled, from 927 to 4,102, and enrollment surged, from just over 250,000 students to nearly 1.5 million.

What changed? In short, Tanzania’s leaders, including me, recognized the vital importance of a strong education system – and we committed ourselves to building one.

Of course, few would argue that education is not important. But, when governments are working to provide more tangible basic necessities – say, ensuring that citizens have reliable access to clean drinking water or road links to markets and hospitals – educational reform can often fall by the wayside. Given education’s unmatched potential to enhance a country’s prospects, this is a mistake.

It is this understanding that impelled me, as President of Tanzania, to make education my number one priority. It was not an easy decision. I knew that some people would disagree with this approach, preferring to allocate more of Tanzania’s limited public budget to building wider highways or taller government buildings, or to expanding the military.

But I also knew that investing in education meant investing in my country’s future, so I decided that, rather than sinking a great deal of money, sometimes unproductively, into these other areas, we would commit 20% of the annual budget to education. Those funds were applied not just to building more schools, but also to building better schools, through investment in teachers, books, and technology. After all, simply enrolling more kids would mean little if they were not given all the tools they needed to succeed.

Tanzania can serve as a useful model for other countries seeking to upgrade their education systems. But, although we achieved success on a limited budget, the challenge that fiscal constraints can pose should not be underestimated – especially for the low- and middle-income countries, often in Africa, that face the biggest educational challenges today.

As a member of the International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity, I have seen firsthand how often governments’ desire to move education up their list of priorities is thwarted by fear of budgetary shortfalls and domestic pressure. As a result, promises to achieve universal primary education are consistently deferred.

When a government commits to improving education, it is betting that equipping its citizens for an unknowable future will yield broad-based, society-wide progress. This is good not only for the country itself, but also for its neighbors, for which a more stable and prosperous neighborhood can only be beneficial. In fact, given the interconnectedness of today’s global economy, better education in one country can bring benefits far beyond regional borders.

Clearly, the international community has an interest in supporting any government that makes the ostensibly obvious, yet practically difficult decision to place education at the forefront of its agenda. And, thanks to the visionary leadership of Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, this imperative is receiving the attention it deserves. Indeed, it will be a central theme at this week’s financing commission summit in Oslo.

Tanzania’s experience proves that transforming a country’s education system is possible, even if that country faces severe fiscal constraints. It is not quick or easy, and it often requires difficult trade-offs. But with a strong and sustained commitment to fulfill the promise of universal primary and secondary education – and a little international support – governments can ensure happier, more prosperous lives for their countries’ young people. One hopes that Tanzania is the first in a wave of countries putting education first.

Taarifa kuhusu HESLB kukosa fedha




Bodi ya Mikopo ya Wanafunzi wa Elimu ya Juu inapenda kukanusha taarifa za upotoshaji zinazoenezwa kwa sasa kwamba haina fedha.

Si kweli kwamba Bodi haina fedha, ila ni kweli kwamba kumekuwa na ucheleweshaji wa kufikisha fedha za wanafunzi vyuoni kutokana na zoezi la kuhakiki wanafunzi wanaonufaika na mikopo linaloendelea vyuoni hivi sasa.

Hata hivyo, maandalizi ya malipo hayo yameshafanyika na ‘pay sheets’ zimeshapelekwa vyuoni tayari kwa wanafunzi wanaonufaika na mikopo kusaini.

Bodi inatarajia wakati wowote wiki ijayo baada ya zoezi la uhakiki kukamilika; itapeleka fedha hizo vyuoni.

Jaji Kihwelo atakayetoa hukumu ya kesi hiyo Julai 21, mwaka huu anachukua nafasi iliyoachwa wazi na Jaji Ferdinand Wambali aliyeteuliwa hivi karibuni kuwa Jaji Kiongozi wa Mahakama Kuu ya Tanzania.

Taarifa kutoka Ofisi ya Jaji Mkuu Dar es Salaam kwa vyombo vya habari, ilisema kabla ya uteuzi huo Jaji Kihwelo alikuwa Jaji wa Mahakama Kuu ya Tanzania mkoani Iringa.

Kwa mujibu wa taarifa, Jaji Kihwelo pia aliwahi kuwa Mkuu wa Kitivo cha Sheria kati ya mwaka 2009 na 2010, katika Chuo Kikuu Huria cha Tanzania (OUT) na aliwahi pia kushika nafasi ya Mkurugenzi wa Kurugenzi ya Kudhibiti Viwango na Ubora.

Taarifa hiyo ilisema Jaji Kihwelo alipata Shahada ya Uzamivu ya Sheria (PhD) katika Chuo Kikuu Huria mwaka 2009, Shahada ya Uzamili ya Sheria (LL.M) katika Chuo Kikuu cha Dar es Salaam (UDSM) mwaka 2000 na Shahada ya kwanza ya Sheria (LL.B) katika Chuo Kikuu cha Dar es Salaam mwaka 1997.

Chuo cha Uongozi wa Mahakama Lushoto kilianzishwa mwaka 1998 na kilianza kutoa mafunzo mwaka 2000.

Chuo kinatoa mafunzo ya Stashahada ya Sheria na Cheti au Astashahada ya Sheria, ambapo kina jumla ya wanafunzi 514 wanaoendelea na masomo kwa ngazi hizo. Kadhalika chuo kinatoa mafunzo endelevu kazini kwa majaji, mahakimu na maofisa wa mahakama. [via Frank Leonard blog]

Aliyekuwa Katibu wa Dayosisi KKKT ahukumiwa miaka 30 jela kwa kubaka

Aliyekuwa Katibu Mkuu wa Kanisa la Kiinjili la Kilutheri Tanzania (KKKT) Dayosisi ya Kusini Kati, Edward Ahazi Masevela (54) amehukumiwa kwenda jela miaka 30 baada ya kupatikana na hatia ya kubaka na udhalilishaji.

Alifikishwa katika mahakama ya wilaya ya Makete Mei, mwaka huu akituhumiwa kumbaka na kumdhalilisha mtoto mwenye umri wa miaka 12 ambaye ni mwanafunzi katika moja ya shule za msingi wilayani humo.

Na katika kosa lingine alituhumiwa kumfanyia shambulio la aibu la mtoto mwingine wa kike ambaye pia ni mwanafunzi katika moja ya shule za wilaya hiyo kwa kumuingiza vidole sehemu za siri.

Akitoa hukumu hiyo, Hakimu Mkazi wa Mahakama ya Mkoa wa Njombe, Cosmas Joseph Hemela alisema mahakama hiyo imejiridhisha pasipo shaka na ushahidi uliotolewa na upande wa mashtaka dhidi ya tuhuma hizo.

Alisema kwa kuzingatia ushahidi huo, mahakama imemkuta mtuhumiwa na makosa mawili, moja ni la ubakaji na lingine ni la shambulio la aibu.

Alisema Masevela alitenda makosa hayo kati ya mwezi Julai 2015 na April 2016 kabla hajafikishwa mahakamani hapo Mei, mwaka huu.

Kwa kuzingatia kifungu cha sheria namba 130(1) na kifungu cha 131 (1) kilichofanyiwa marekebisho mwaka 2002, mtuhumiwa amekutwa na hatia ya Kubaka na kufungwa jela miaka 30.

Na kwa kuzingatia kifungu cha sheria namba 138(1)(a)(2b) kilichofaniwa marekebisho mwaka 2002, mtuhumiwa amekutwa na hatia ya kufanya shambulio la aibu kwa kumwingiza vidole sehemu za siri mtoto mdogo na kukutwa na hatia inayompeleka jela miaka miwili.

Alipopewa nafasi ya kujitetea kabla ya kuhukumiwa vifungo hivyo atakavyovitumikia kwa pamoja, aliiomba mahakama imemuone huruma akisisitiza kwamba hakutenda makosa hayo aliyosema ushahidi wake ulikuwa wa kutengeneza.

Baada ya kutoa hukumu hiyo, hakimu huyo alisema rufaa dhidi ya hukumu hiyo ipo wazi ndani ya siku 30. [Frank Leonard blog]
