Charges dropped against husband who killed a man that nearly raped his wife

Charges have been dropped against a 61-year-old New York cab driver who beat to death his wife’s would-be rapist.

Mamadou Diallo walked from court a free man Wednesday after prosecutors threw out assault and weapon possession charges against him at the urging of the dead man’s family.

The Bronx man had originally been charged with manslaughter in the May killing of Earl Nash, 43, who police said forced his way into the couple’s home and attacked Nenegale Diallo. He ripped off her clothes and pulled his pants down, authorities said.

The woman’s sister, who had been in a back bedroom of the apartment of the apartment, came running and was able to stop the attack, police said.

The victim phoned her husband, who arrived in time to catch Nash as he was fleeing, according to prosecutors. As the men struggled, Diallo hit Nash in the head with a tire iron.

The man died shortly thereafter at a nearby hospital. An autopsy determined his death was caused by several factors including complications from his injuries, cocaine intoxication and heart disease.

“This case was a tragedy for all whose lives intersected in that Bronx building on the night of May 30, 2016,” said Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark. “We waited for three months for the autopsy results, and after a thorough investigation as well as discussions with the deceased’s family, we have determined that no grand jury action is warranted,” WCBS-TVreported.

Applause briefly erupted in the courtroom after her statements.

Nash’s relatives said he suffered from untreated bipolar disorder. The bottom had dropped out of his life, they said.

“As a family we pray that Mrs. Diallo and family may recover from the unfortunate trauma they’ve experienced. While we cannot [undo] the damage that was done that evening, we hope to bring some closure not only to our family but to the Diallo family as well,” Nash’s family said in a statement.

Nenegale Diallo told the station she was “really, really happy today because it’s a surprise to me.”

Diallo’s taxi license had been revoked after the incident. It was reinstated Wednesday.

Perhaps he should have considered divorce.

A 70-year-old Kansas man is in federal custody after he held up a bank so he wouldn’t have to live with his wife anymore, authorities said.

Lawrence John Ripple was charged in federal court with robbing the Bank of Labor in Kansas City on Friday.

The man handed over a note that read, “I have a gun, give me money,” according to court documents, the Kansas City Star reported Wednesday.

The teller obliged, giving Ripple an undisclosed amount of cash, the paper said.

Instead of fleeing, Ripple ambled over to the lobby and grabbed a seat, and waited for the law to show up, authorities said.

It didn’t take long because the Kansas City police have a station house on the same block.

In the meantime, a bank security guard relieved Ripple of his loot. “I’m your man,” the senior citizen thief allegedly said, according to court documents.

Later, while being interrogated by detectives, Ripple said he and his wife had fought and he “no longer wanted to be in that situation,” the paper reported.

Ripple had written his bank robbery note in front of his wife, and told her “he’d rather be in jail than at home,” said an affidavit filed by a FBI agent.

It was not clear whether Ripple had entered a plea.

ITT Technical Institutes shuts down


ITT Technical Institute, a for-profit college, shut down more than 130 campuses and laid off the “overwhelming majority” of its employees. 
The Department of Education had ruled that ITT would need to produce $153 million in additional collateral — on top of the $78 million it had on hand — to cover losses if it failed (the government feared being left on the hook). 

ITT is facing a suite of lawsuits, from the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Massachusetts attorney general, regarding allegations it misled students.

Itafika siku Watanzania wagongewe milango kwa kudaiwa deni la taifa?

Serikali imewahakikishia Watanzania kuwa inaendelea na mikakati ya makusudi katika kudhibiti ongezeko la deni la taifa.

Hayo yamesemwa na Naibu Waziri wa Fedha na Mipango Dkt. Ashatu Kijaji alipokuwa akijibu swali la Saed Kubenea Mbunge wa Ubungo lililouulizwa kwa niaba yake na Kiongozi wa Kambi ya Upinzani Bungeni na Mbunge wa Hai Freeman Mbowe lililohusu deni la taifa.

Naibu Waziri huyo aliitaja mikakati inayosaidia kupunguza deni la taifa ambayo ni pamoja na kuongeza ukusanyaji wa mapato, kupunguza matumizi yasiyo ya lazima, kuendelea kutafuta misaada na mikopo nafuu na kukopa mikopo michache ya kibiashara ya miradi yenye kuchochea kwa haraka ukuaji wa pato la taifa.

Mikakati mingine ni kudhibiti ulimbikizaji wa madai ya kimkataba kwa wakandarasi na watoa huduma na kudhibiti madeni yatokanayo na dhamana za Serikali kwenye mashirika ya umma kwa kufanya ufuatiliaji wa karibu wa mikataba inayoweza kusababisha mzigo wa madeni kwa Serikali.

Naibu Waziri Dkt. Ashatu alisema hadi kufikia Juni 2016 deni la taifa lilikuwa dola za kimarekani bilioni 23.2 ikilinganishwa na dola bilioni 19.69 kwa mwezi Juni 2015 ikiwa ni sawa na ongezeko la asilimia 18.

Dkt. Ashatu alifafanua kuwa kati ya kiasi hicho, deni la Serikali ni dola za Kimarekani bilioni 20.5 na deni la sekta binafsi ni dola za Kimarekani bilioni 2.7 na kuongeza kuwa deni la Serikali linatokana na mikopo ya ndani na nje kwa ajili ya kugharimia miradi ya maendeleo.

Baadhi ya miradi ya maendeleo iliyoainishwa ambayo imetumia fedha za maendeleo ni pamoja na ujenzi wa barabara na madaraja, mradi ya kimakakati wa kuboresha majiji, ujenzi wa njia ya umeme wa msongo wa kv 400 kutoka Iringa hadi Shinyanga na mabasi yaendayo haraka.

Miradi mingine ni ujenzi wa bomba la gesi na mitambo ya kusafisha gesi, upanuzi wa uwanja wa ndege wa Dar es salaam na mradi wa maji wa Ruvu Juu na Ruvu Chini.

Aidha, Dkt. Ashatu amesema kuwa katika kipindi cha mwaka wa fedha 2010/2011, Serikali ilipokea mikopo yenye masharti nafuu na ya biashara kiasi cha sh trilioni 1.3 na mwaka 2014/2015 Serikali ilipokea mikopo ya kiasi cha Sh. trilioni 2.3 mikopo ambayo haikufikia trilioni 15 kwa mwaka 2011 na trilioni 9 kabla ya mwaka 2015.

Kwa upande wake Waziri wa Mambo ya Ndani ya nchi alipokuwa akichangia hoja hiyo amewatoa hofu Watanzania na kusema kuwa haitatokea hata siku moja wagongewe milango kwa kudaiwa deni la taifa na kuongeza kuwa deni la taifa linapimwa kutokana na ukusanyaji wa mapato hatua ambayo Serikali inaendelea kuitekeleza kwa vitendo.

Waziri Mwigulu aliongeza kuwa Serikali haikopi kwa ajili ya miradi ya kawaida isipokuwa inakopa kwa ajili ya miradi ya maendeleo kwa lengo la kuwahudumia wananchi.

Taarifa ya Wizara kuhusu mkutano wa dharura wa wakuu wa nchi za EAC

Waziri Dkt Mahiga (Mb) akiongea katika Mkutano na Waandishi wa Habari uliofanyika katika Ukumbi wa Kimataifa wa Julius Nyerere Jijini Dar es Salaam tarehe 7 Septemba, 2016.

TAARIFA KWA VYOMBO VYA HABARI

Mkutano wa 17 wa Dharura wa Wakuu wa Nchi Wanachama wa Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki kufanyika Jijini Dar es Salaam


Mwenyekiti wa Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki ambaye pia ni Rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania, Mhe. Dkt. John Pombe Magufuli ameitisha Mkutano wa 17 wa Dharura wa Wakuu wa Nchi Wanachama Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki (EAC) utakaofanyika Ikulu, Jijini Dar es Salaam tarehe 09 Septemba, 2016.

Mkutano huo ambao ulitanguliwa na vikao vya maandalizi vya Makatibu Wakuu na Mawaziri vilivyofanyika Jijini Arusha utajadili agenda kuu nne ambazo ni:- Mahusiano ya kibiashara na uwekezaji kati ya Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki (EAC) na Umoja wa Ulaya (EU) kupitia Mkataba wa Ushirikiano wa Kibiashara (EPA).

Agenda zingine ni Kupokea Taarifa ya Mwezeshaji wa mazungumzo ya Amani nchini Burundi, Mhe. Benjamin William Mkapa, Rais Mstaafu wa Tanzania; Kupata taarifa ya hatua za kukamilisha uanachama wa Sudan Kusini kwenye EAC; na
Kuapishwa kwa Naibu Katibu Mkuu wa Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki kutoka Rwanda.

Akizungumzia mkutano huo kwa Waandishi wa Habari, Waziri wa Mambo ya Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, Mhe. Dkt. Augustine Mahiga amesema kuwa mkutano huu umeitishwa kwa dharura ili kuzungumzia agenda hizo muhimu hususan ile ya nchi wanachama kukubaliana kwa pamoja kusaini au kutosaini Mkataba wa EPA ifikapo tarehe 1 Oktoba, 2016.

Kuhusu Mkataba wa EPA, Mhe. Waziri Mahiga alisema kuwa Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki ilianza mazungumzo na Jumuiya ya Ulaya ya kushirikiana kibiashara kupitia EPA miaka 14 iliyopita na kuingia makubaliano ya awali mwaka 2014. Alieleza kuwa kwa mujibu wa makubaliano hayo ya awali EU na EAC zilikubaliana Mkataba huo usainiwe kwa pamoja na nchi zote za Jumuiyamwezi Julai 2016 kabla ya kuanza utekelezaji wake.

Hata hivyo Tanzania ilitangaza kutosaini makubaliano hayo kwa sababu mkataba huo unaweza kukwamisha juhudi za Serikali ya Awamu ya Tano ya kuifanya Tanzania nchi ya Viwanda na Uchumi wa kati ifikapo 2025.

Aidha, Tanzania inahitaji kujadiliana zaidi na nchi wanachama ili kujiridhisha kuwa mkataba huo hautoathiri Mkataba ulioanzisha Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki hususan hatua ya mwanzo ya mkataba ambayo ni Umoja wa Forodha.

Kuhusu nchi nyingine wanachama Mhe. Mahiga alieleza kwamba, tayari Kenya na Rwanda zimesaini mkataba huo huku Uganda ikisubiri majadiliano ya nchi wanachama kabla ya kusaini na Burundi ikijitoa kusaini mkataba huo kwa vile tayari nchi za Ulaya zimeiwekea vikwazo vya kiuchumi.

WM Majaliwa akagua ujenzi wa makazi mapya Dodoma



WAZIRI MKUU Kassim Majaliwa amefanya ziara ya kukagua ujenzi wa makazi mapya ya Waziri Mkuu katika eneo la Mlimwa na kuagiza umalizike kwa wakati ili aweze kuhamia kama alivyoahidi.
Katika ziara hiyo aliyoifanya leo mchana (Jumatano, Septemba 7, 2016) Waziri Mkuu amesema ameridhishwa na namna kazi ya ujenzi inavyofanyika.
“Nimekuja kukagua makazi mapya na mahali pa kufanyia kazi. Kazi ya ujenzi inaendelea vizuri, nimejionea mwenyewe na naamini katika kipindi kifupi watakuwa wamekamilisha,” amesema.
Amesema kutokamilika kwa ujenzi huo hauwezi kukwamisha azma yake ya kuhamia Dodoma kwa sababu tayari inafahamika kuwa Makao Makuu ya Ofisi ya Waziri Mkuu yako Dodoma.
Amesema uamuzi wa Serikali kuhamia Dodoma hautokani na shinikizo la kisiasa bali ni utekelezaji wa Ilani ya Chama cha Mapinduzi (CCM) ambao chimbuko lake ni agizo lililotolewa Oktoba Mosi, 1973 kwenye Mkutano Mkuu wa 16 wa chama cha TANU.
“Tangu wakati huo Serikali zote ziliendelea kufanya juhudi mbalimbali za kuandaa miundombinu na hata awamu ya nne ilisimamia kwa kiwango kikubwa uwekaji wa miundombinu hiyo,” amesema.
“Pia tukumbuke kauli ya Mheshimiwa Rais aliyotoa kwenye hotuba yake ya Julai 23, 2016 alipochaguliwa kuwa Mwenyekiti mpya wa CCM, na akairudia tena Julai 25, kwenye maadhimisho ya kumbukumbu ya Mashujaa na mimi siku hiyo hiyo nikaweka msisitizo,” amesema.
Amesema uamuzi wa Serikali ya awamu ya tano wa kuhamia Dodoma unakuja baada ya kuridhishwa na ujenzi wa miundombinu na maeneo ya kutolea huduma za kijamii kwa wageni na wenyeji ikiwemo Hospitali ya Benjamini Mkapa iliyopo katika Chuo Kikuu cha Dodoma (UDOM) yenye uwezo wa kutibu magonjwa makubwa kama ya moyo na figo.

Waziri Mkuu amesema tayari Mamlaka ya Ustawishaji Makao Makuu Dodoma (CDA) ina mpango kamambe (master plan) na ina viwanja vya kutosha kujenga makazi na ofisi mbalimbali.

Statement by Deputy Minister after meeting UNAIDS Deputy Director regarding homosexuality in Tanzania

Statement by the Deputy Minister for Health, Dr. Hamisi Kigwangalla, MP., on Homosexuality in Tanzania After a Meeting with Dr. Pierre Somse, UNAIDS Deputy Director for Eastern and Southern Africa.

--------------------

Yesterday I was visited by Dr. Pierre Somse, UNAIDS Deputy Director for Eastern and Southern Africa. We had a long meeting. Among other things, he was keen to learn my position regarding speculations among the donor countries as well as the international community that Tanzania is ‘harassing and discriminating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people’, and that we are ‘banning HIV/AIDS programmes targeting HIV/AIDS interventions on these people and we are de-registering all NGOs with interventions on LGBTI’. He reported that there is an environment of fear and uncertainty in the HIV/AIDS programming work.

He said these speculations followed an intervention by our Minister where ‘she ordered no more distribution of lubricants until further notice’ and my visit to an NGO named CHESA which was purportedly accused of carrying out programmes on LGBTI and that ‘I ordered arrest of their officials etc.’

I responded as:

1. Tanzania is a country built on the strong foundation of respect for human rights, dignity, personal freedom, democracy and rule of law.

2. The Tanzanian government recognizes, respects and highly regards efforts and support by various stakeholders, including international NGOs, donor countries, local NGOs and the general community, in the HIV/AIDS response.

3. Tanzania upholds professionalism and has been using best practices emanating from scientifically proven and rigorous research and HIV/AIDS programmes used in the HIV/AIDS response.

4. Tanzania has its own constitution, laws, regulations, guidelines and modes of operation; our country takes very seriously our national values and beliefs, customs and traditions, and we will, always, protect them.

5. Tanzania assures our friends, partners and the donor community of our continued collaboration and my office is open for any dialogue when there is any uncertainty. Let it be known that I operate on an ‘open-door’ policy.

6. Despite the fact that we have been insisting that the most important of the key and vulnerable populations for us is the ‘adolescent girls and young women group’, I can not deny the presence of LGBTI people in our society, and the risk they pose in fueling the spread of HIV/AIDS in the society, and I understand that is why our Ministry, before even I was appointed to this position, had its own ‘National Guideline for Comprehensive Package of HIV Interventions for Key Populations’, which I am aware that it provided authority for programmes to distribute ‘lubricants’ to LGBT etc.

7. Let all be aware that, before I came to this office, the government had de-registered NGOs such as ‘Sisi Kwa Sisi’ and banned a number of programmes which violated the requirements of the laws of our land, customs and traditions, with respect to issues around LGBTI people. This task is a continuation of the same as well improve working relationship between the government and partners.

8. We have information that some NGOs have been implementing programmes ‘in the name of HIV/AIDS response in the LGBTI people’ and went beyond their scope, in fact they have been promoting homosexuality. Some NGOs have been implementing programmes in jurisdictions without LGBTI people; I have vivid complaints by villagers in various areas of Tabora and Shinyanga where some programmes have been distributing ‘lubricants’ and educating them on how to use them! NB: we all know that some of these communities are even skeptical when it comes to taking and or receiving education about ‘condoms’ and how to use them, what is of ‘lubricants’? We have evidence that some NGOs have been defaulting their mandatory returns; some have been withholding, against the law that registers NGOs, information regarding their various programmes and their various sources of funding. A good example is CHESA, which omitted to provide reports regarding their programmes and donors, and when asked to do so, mis-reported and under-reported – they had funds from JHPIEGO which they received but purposively omitted to report, while JHPIEGO was honest enough as to report the work that they were doing in partnership with CHESA!

9. Despite the presence of LGBTI people in our country, we do not subscribe to the assertion that ‘there is a gender continuum’, we still recognize the two traditional sexes, i.e. Male and Female, and there is nothing in between or beyond! So any effort to claim otherwise is not allowed in Tanzania.

10. Tanzania does not allow activist groups carrying out campaigns that promote homosexuality and the assertion that there is a ‘gender continuum’ that must be recognized and protected.

11. Any ‘act or attempt to commit unnatural offences’ is illegal and severely punished by law (refer Cap 16 of the Laws of Tanzania, The Penal Code, Sect. 154 and 155.)

12. We, so far, have not de-registered any NGO that carries programmes on LGBTI, we are investigating those which have been reported to have broken the law. The various state organs are working on the matter keenly and closely. If there will be found any violation of the laws, customs and traditions, appropriate actions shall be taken in accordance to the laws and regulations of our country.

13. Our technical team is looking into the technical aspects of carrying out implementation of programmes using the ‘public health approach’ without breaking the laws, regulations, customs and traditions. The government will publicize its way forward when consensus is reached regarding our position and approach on LGBTI programming.

Meanwhile,

(i) I demand the team that is carrying out the ‘Mapping and enumeration study for Intravenous drug users (IDUs), Men having sex with men (MSMs) and female sex workers (FSWs)’ to never share their findings with any one within or outside the country, without permission of the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children.

(ii) We will collaborate with the Tanzania Commission for AIDS (TACAIDS), - the Civil Society Desk, in embarking on a vetting task for NGOs and enlist credible NGOs in their website as well as our website. We further advise international NGOs and partners interested to work with credible NGOs to contact the government for a letter of clearance so that programmes brought in our country in good faith shall not be tarnished by irresponsible and unprofessional people carrying out illegal activities.

(iii) The government shall use its machinery to properly vet all NGOs in terms of programme activities, funding sources and other motives.

(iv)The government requires all NGOs working with our Regional Secretariats and Local Government Authorities to revisit our national guidelines on how to work in partnership with these authorities, where they would be reminded of community entry/exit steps, community mobilization strategies, procedures for behavior change communications, procedures for supportive supervisions, requirements of sharing their implementation plans, research results, progress reports and summative programme reports.

(v) Whenever you are not sure if you have crossed the line, visit the office of the Director of NGOs at the Ministry for clarity and guidance.
