Gereza lilivyoharibiwa na tetemeko la ardhi Kagera; Waziri aagiza wafungwa wahamishwe

Serikali imeagiza wafungwa 280 katika gereza la Kitengule wilayani Karagwe, wahamishwe katika kipindi cha wiki moja kupelekwa gereza la Mwisa.

Watahamishwa baada ya mabweni yao kuharibiwa kwa tetemeko la ardhi lililotokea mkoani Kagera Septemba 10, 2016.

Agizo hilo lilitolewa jana, Septemba 18, 2016 na Waziri wa Mambo ya Ndani ya Nchi, Mwigulu Nchemba kwa Mkuu wa Magereza Mkoa wa Kagera, Jeremiah Nkonda.

Mwigulu aliagiza hilo baada ya kufanya ziara mkoani hapa na kutembelea taasisi zilizo chini ya wizara yake kwa lengo la kuona uharibifu uliojitokeza kutokana na tetemeko hilo, lililoripotiwa kusababisha vifo vya watu 17, majeruhi, nyumba kubomoka na uharibifu mkubwa wa majengo na miundombinu ya barabara.
“Nimetembelea magereza yetu, lakini gereza la Kitengule limeharibika sana, kuta zimeanguka, mabweni yameharibika kwa kiwango kikubwa kiasi kwamba hawapaswi kuishi watu. Kwa hiyo, naagiza mkuu wa magereza hapa kuwahamishia wafungwa hawa katika gereza la Mwisa lenye mabweni manne yaliyo wazi,” aliagiza Mwigulu.
Alisema katika kipindi cha wiki moja, kazi hiyo iwe imekamilika kwa sababu wakiendelea kuwaacha wafungwa hao katika gereza hilo lililoharibika ni hatari, kwani wanaweza kudondokewa na kuta zinazoning’inia na kusababisha maafa mengine.

Mwigulu alisema kutokana na tukio hilo, Wizara inaandaa mpango wa muda mrefu wa kujenga bweni kubwa, litakalokuwa na uwezo wa kubeba wafungwa 400 kwa wakati mmoja kwa kuwa hilo ni gereza la kikazi linalobeba watu wengi.

Kwa upande wake, Nkonda alisema kilichochangia zaidi kushuka kwa kuta hizo ni kwamba matofali yaliyojenga kuta hizo yanaonekana yalikuwa mabichi.

Alisema kwa hali hiyo haitawezekana kufanya ukarabati, bali ni kuhakikisha wanabomoa mabweni hayo na kujenga upya.

Alisema gereza hilo, lilikuwa na uwezo wa kubeba wafungwa 380 kati ya hao 100 wako kwenye kambi ndogo na 280 ndio watakaohamishiwa kupelekwa katika gereza la Mwisa.

Ethiopian Airlines passenger held by police in Tanzania, charged

(video via WhatsApp)


Ethiopian Airlines passenger is under police and security supervision in Tanzania charged of causing chaos, destruction of an aircraft part and disturbance to passengers on board.

The passenger known as Ally Thabit Ally an Oman citizen, had booked a flight on Ethiopian Airlines from Tanzania’s commercial city of Dar es Salaam to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia last week.

Police and security operatives from the Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA) said the person, a student in Oman had booked the plane to Addis Ababa and caused destruction to the aircraft parts and flight delay at the Tanzania’s airport.

The person, police said, had booked the flight to Addis Ababa then boarded the plane, but locked himself in the aircraft latrine for several minutes and when the aircraft was taxing on the runway ready to take off, the cabin crew noted an empty seat with a missing passenger on board.

Police and security operatives further said that the shocked crew alerted the pilot of the missing passenger, a situation which forced the pilot to reverse the aircraft to the parking area where airport security stormed into the plane in an effort to search for the missing passenger.

After counting all passengers on board, they found an empty seat, then directed their eyes to the aircraft toilet to find it locked.

They knocked the latrine door with all efforts but with no response for more than ten minutes, but applied force to let the person out with positive response.

Police further said the person was found locked inside the ET aircraft’s latrine and when interrogated, he complained of diarrhoea and a loose stomach which forced him to stay inside the aircraft’s latrine for a long time.

“It took the airport security officials more than15 minutes knocking the aircraft latrine door to get the person out but in vain. As the security personnel were contemplating the next step, the person opened the door and got out”, said the Jnulius Nyerere International Airport official.

“Soon after getting out of the latrine, he told us that he was suffering from diarrhoea and a loose stomach. There was no alternative more than cancelling his trip for security reasons and we later booked him to the airport police station for further interrogation”, added the airport official.

The person is now under police custody waiting court charges, accused of causing destruction to ET’s aircraft latrine’s door.

Further reports said that the person has been thoroughly interrogated to establish if he was planning to hijack the plane and whether he was an airborne terrorist but, only found him with aircraft destruction offense.

Tanzanian police said the person will be sent to court soon after assessing the costs incurred from the destruction and the value of the aircraft part he had destroyed before letting him out of Tanzania.

“We are working closely with Ethiopian Airlines to establish the incurred loss and the value of the aircraft part which the person had caused before charging him and letting him to fly out of Tanzania”, senior police official told eTN.

“We are as well, waiting to receive from the Ethiopian Airlines managers in Tanzania, the actual costs of the aircraft’s latrine door that the person had broken before taking more legal steps against the person. After the court process, we will let him continue with his flight to his final destination”, airport police official told eTN.

Before allowed to take off, the ET plane delayed for a specified time for security purposes. It later flew to Addis without the said passenger known as Ally Thabit Ally, a citizen of Oman.

Floods leave many homeless in Sumbawanga

SEVERAL families have been rendered homeless at Mtimbwa Village in Sumbawanga Municipality following heavy rainfall in the area on Friday.

The downpour that lasted for an hour wreaked havoc to the residents of Mtimbwa Village as some of them whose houses were destroyed sought refuge in their neighbours' houses or homes of relatives.

Mtimbwa Village Chairman, Mr Wilbroad Kapufi, told the 'Sunday News' at the scene that 21 houses had been destroyed, including five houses whose walls collapsed. He added that it was a pathetic sight as several families had been rendered homeless while eight goats, a pig and over 100 chickens had died.

"We appeal to the government and other stakeholders to assist the victims by providing them with humanitarian assistance," added Mr Kapufi. Mr Kapufi said three children who were alone in the farmlands outside the village cheated death when they were swept by water, but were rescued by some of the villagers sent to search for them.

When reached for comment, the Sumbawanga District Commissioner (DC), Dr Halfan Haule, told the 'Sunday News' over the phone that Rukwa Regional Commissioner (RC), Mr Zelothe Steven, accompanied by members of the region's security and defence committee rushed to the scene of incident.

Dr Haule said that actual assessment of the damage caused by the downpour has so far not been quantified. Rukwa Region Police Commander (RPC), Mr George Kyando, confirmed that by the time he was talking to the 'Sunday News', no casualty had been reported.

Kalonzo: Uhuru should learn from Magufuli - We hope he can come, help us in Kenya for 2 months

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has applauded Tanzanian President John Magufuli for his relentless efforts in fighting corruption in his country.

Kalonzo said corruption is the cancer consuming many African nations.
“Tanzania has a President who has committed himself to fight graft because that is the problem in many of the African countries, we comment him, we hope he can come around and help us in Kenya for two months,” Kalonzo said.
Kalonzo was speaking on Saturday when he attended a farewell party of Miss Sharon Ogeto who is getting married to his Tanzania fiancé Humfrey Ephraim from Bukoba at their residence in Karen.

He said the EAC integration is one of the projects he worked for during his tenure as the Foreign minister of Kenya.

Kalonzo served as the first chair of the tripartite committee set up by the East African Presidents in the 1990’s to revive the collapsed cooperation.

Kalonzo said this, efforts by the young generation must be encouraged to among other things suppress the ghost of tribalism, which he said, is slowly eating up the Kenyan nation fabric.
“To slay the ghost of tribalism, beautiful deeds such as these must be encouraged, as leaders we should borrow a leave from these young ones and embrace each other as Kenyans and East Africans,” he said.

CECAFA Women Championship: Tanzania humiliates Uganda in semi final

  • 1st Semi-final: Kenya 3-2 Ethiopia
  • 2nd Semi-final: Tanzania 4-0 Uganda
Tanzania Kilimanjaro Queens will play Kenya Harambee Stars in the finals of the 2016 CECAFA Women championship on Tuesday.

The development was confirmed after the two semi-finals played on the astro turf of the FUFA Technical center, Njeru on Sunday.

The Kilimanjaro Queens took a 3-0 comfortable lead over the hosts Uganda Crested Cranes by the close of business of the opening 45 minutes before a full packed gallery at the usually deserted Njeru facility.

The large following was kept muted almost from the start of referee Suavis Iratunga’s opening whistle right to the finish.

The Tanzanian ladies completely dominated the match.

Daniel Donisia struck the opener as early as the fourth minute of the game with a well taken free-kick off the left foot.

The free-kick arose after Gladys Nakito brought down Abdalla Stumai at the edge of the 18 yard box.

Omari Mwanahamisi beat Uganda Crested Cranes goalkeeper Ruth Aturo at the near post for the second goal after 14 minutes to take a two goal lead.

Twenty four minutes into the first half, Uganda called for the first change of the game; Yudaya Nakayenze paved way for Christine Nambirige who required a late fitness test.

Two minutes from the half time mark, Abdalla Stumai netted the third off a spectacular left footer from 35 yards.

Uganda has looked out of sorts for long spells of the game with no clear cut goal scoring opportunity created.

As the two teams’ players returned from the locker-rooms, Tanzanian team captain Rashid Asha scored the fourth goal with most fans settling in their seats to catch the second half.

The goal extinguished even the light hope of Uganda overturning the result – the damage had the already inflicted.

U.S based Laki Otandeka paved way for Ritah Nabossa five minutes into the second half.

Inside the final twenty minutes of the game, Tanzania technical bench smiling victory rested the first goal scorer Daniel Donisia for Boniface Sherida.

Later Stumai also paved way for Fatuma Mustafa.

Majority of the sad fans walked out of the stadium in bitter protest and missed watching Hasifa Nassuna’s consolation late in the game.

Nassuna’s goal was her fifth of the tournament, not only pestering the 4-1 score line a respectable second look, but also taking the sharp shooter aloft the scorers’ roster.

Tanzania plays Kenya in the finals on Tuesday as Uganda will battle the free passing Ethiopians for the third place slot.

Earlier, Kenya Harambee Starlets came from a goal down to beat horn of Africa nation, Ethiopia 3-2 in a thrilling match that the Ethiopians dominated with their customary passing tradition.

Tanzania's Kilimanjaro Queens booked a date with Kenya’s Harambee Starlets in the final of the 2016 edition of the CECAFA Women Championship after overcoming hosts Uganda 4-0 in the second semi final played at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru on Sunday 18 September.

Youthful Midfielder Daniel Donisia silenced the home crowd giving the visitors a fourth minute lead with a well taken free-kick off the left foot after the hosts' keeper had gone into a brief slumber while organizing her defence.

Winger Omari Mwanahamisi who had been a thorn to the host defence with some mazy runs doubled Tanzania's lead with a near post finish ten minutes later which forced the home team into an earlier substitution withdrawing Yudaya Nakayenze for Christine Nambirige to help steady the midfield. Two minutes from the half time mark, Abdalla Stumai netted the third off a spectacular left footer from 35 yards in what might be a goal of the tournament contender.

The Tanzanians continued from where they left in the second half, Omari again turning provider for her captain Asha Rashid who scored their fourth of the game in what proved to be a one sided affair.

Uganda will now battle Ethiopia in the third place play off on Tuesday 20 September; the game being the curtain raiser of the Starlets, Tanzania game.
