Leticia Nyerere rejoins CCM

Leticia Nyerere

Chama Cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (Chadema) out-going Special Seats Member of Parliament (MP) Leticia Nyerere defected to the ruling party Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM).

“I’ve decided to go back home (rejoining CCM),” she told reporters in Dar es Salaam. She said her move resulted from what she termed as ‘misconduct within Chadema.’ She could not elaborate.

She said she rejoined CCM because it is the only party with clear-cut policies compared to opposition parties. “I believe that CCM can bring about positive changes in transforming our society,” she said.

“CCM has educated me within and outside the country and to thank this party my service is badly needed in repaying its sacrifice for my well-being.”

Dk Salim: Chama chochote kinaweza kushika dola

By Bakari Kiango, Mwananchi


Dar es Salaam. Waziri mkuu mstaafu, Dk Salim Ahmed Salim amesema chama chochote cha siasa nchini kina nafasi ya kushika dola endapo kitafuata kanuni na taratibu zilizowekwa na mamlaka husika.

Dk Salim alisema hayo jana baada ya kufungua semina iliyoandaliwa na Taasisi ya Utamaduni na Urithi kutoka Chuo Kikuu cha Kiislamu Morogoro (MUM).

Alisema demokrasia katika vyama vya siasa imezidi kukua na kwamba kikubwa kinachotakiwa ni kutumia njia bora na siyo kurushiana maneno ambayo hayana msingi.

“Utakuta viongozi wa vyama wenyewe kwa wenyewe wanarushiana maneno, huyu hafai mara siyo raia wa nchi hii, sasa haya mambo kwenye siasa hayatakiwi.

“Ni lazima kila kiongozi wa chama cha siasa atambue wajibu wake katika jamii,” alisema Dk Salim.

Pia maadili ya viongozi katika Taifa yameporomoka, hivyo aliwaasa wananchi kuchagua viongozi bora kwa masilahi ya Taifa katika Uchaguzi Mkuu wa Oktoba 25 mwaka huu.

“Sasa kiongozi anagombea nafasi fulani kwa masilahi yake binafsi, siyo kwa wananchi na anawaomba wampigie kura,” alisema Dk Salim.

Aliwataka wananchi kuwa watulivu na kuilinda amani katika kipindi hiki cha uchaguzi.

Ismail Jussa: Kwanini naunga mkono kwa Mh Edward Lowassa kukaribishwa UKAWA

Mjadala mkubwa umezuka kuhusu mwelekeo wa ushirikiano wa vyama vikuu vya upinzani vinavyounda UKAWA na hatua ya kumkaribisha Waziri Mkuu mstaafu na Mbunge wa Monduli, Mhe. Edward Lowassa, ili kushirikiana kuiondosha madarakani CCM pamoja na mfumo wake wa kikandamizaji na kifisadi ulioambatana na kiburi kikubwa cha watawala.

Baada ya kusoma maoni na mitazamo ya watu mbali mbali, nataka na miye nieleze mtazamo wangu kuhusiana na masuala hayo lakini zaidi nikirudi nyuma katika miaka ya 1991 na 1992 ambapo kulikuwa na vuguvugu zito la kudai mabadiliko ya mfumo wa utawala katika Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania hasa baada ya kuangushwa Ukuta wa Berlin na kuporomoka kwa dola kandamizi za kikomunisti na washirika wao zilizokuwa zikijitambulisha na Kambi ya Mashariki zama za Vita Baridi (Cold War). Tanzania haikusalimika. Na mimi nikiwa kijana mdogo wa miaka 19 nilikuwa katikati ya vuguvugu hilo.

Sote tunajua kwamba demokrasia ya vyama vingi inastawi pale nchi inapokuwa na uwanja wa ushidani ulio sawa (level playing field).

Mwaka 1991, Tume ya Jaji Francis Nyalali iliyopendekeza kurudishwa kwa mfumo wa demokrasia ya vyama vingi ilipendekeza pia, kupitia Taarifa yake iliyokuwa na vitabu (volumes) vitatu, haja ya kwanza kubadilisha Katiba, Sheria na misingi ya Utawala katika maeneo mengi ili kuondoa nafasi ya CCM kudhibiti hatamu zote na pia kudhibiti taasisi zote kuu za nchi pamoja na rasilimali nyingi ambazo kimsingi zilipatikana kupitia michango ya lazima iliyokamuliwa kwa wananchi ambao wengi wao hawakuwa hata wanachama wa CCM.

Kwa mukhtasari ni kwamba Tume ya Nyalali ilitaka kwanza CCM kiondolewe nguvu hizo kubwa ambazo haikuzipata kutokana na kazi ya kisiasa iliyofanya au kukubaliwa kwake kwa hiyari na wananchi bali kutokana na kuhodhi kwake kwa mabavu mamlaka makubwa chini ya dhana ya "Chama kushika hatamu" (Party Supremacy), dhana iliyokifanya kisiwe chama cha siasa bali ni chama dola (state party) ambacho kilikuwa siyo tu chama pekee cha siasa lakini zaidi ilikiweka juu ya mamlaka na taasisi nyengine zote za dola tena kwa mujibu wa Katiba na Sheria za Nchi.

The President Delivers a Toast to the Prime Minister of Ethiopia

President Obama delivers a toast to Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn of Ethiopia at a State Dinner in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. July 27, 2015.

Obama praises Ethiopia over fight against al-Shabab

US President Barack Obama has praised Ethiopia as an “outstanding partner” in the fight against militant Islamists.

Its troops had played a key role in weakening the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab group in Somalia, Mr Obama said.

He was speaking after talks with Ethiopia’s PM Hailemariam Desalegn, during the first ever visit by a US president to the East African state.

He also called on Mr Hailemariam to improve Ethiopia’s record on human rights and good governance.

“I don’t bite my tongue too much when it comes to these issues,” he said at a joint press conference in the capital, Addis Ababa.

Some rights groups have criticised Mr Obama’s visit, warning that it could lend credibility to a government accused of jailing journalists and critics.

A legal case currently being fought through the US courts alleges that agents of the Ethiopian government eavesdropped on the internet activities of a man in the US state of Maryland.

The man, born in Ethiopia and now a US citizen, works for a political opposition group outlawed in his home country.

Addressing the media, Mr Obama described the Ethiopian government, which won all parliamentary seats in May’s election, as “democratically elected”.

Tanzania: Ripoti kuhusu mshahara wa JK ni upuuzi

Ikulu ya Rais nchini Tanzania imekanusha ripoti iliyochapishwa hivi karibuni kuhusu mishahara ya marais wa Afrika ambapo Rais Jakaya kikwete alitajwa kuwa kiongozi wa 5 anayepata mshahara mkubwa zaidi. 

Taarifa kutoka kitengo cha mawasiliano cha Ikulu ya Dar es Salaam imesema madai kwamba Rais Kikwete anapokea kiasi cha dola 192 000 kwa mwaka sawa na takriban dola 16 000 kila mwezi ni ya uongo na wala hayana msingi. 

Gazeti moja la Tanzania lilichapisha habari hiyo likinukuu mtandao wa Afrikan Review ambao ulitoa orodha ya mishahara ya marais wa Afrika. 

Kwa mujibu wa ripoti ya Afrika Review, Rais Yoweri Museveni wa Uganda ni miongoni mwa marais wa Afrika wanaopokea mshahara mdogo zaidi huku Rais wa Cameroon, Paul Biya akiwa ndiye kiongozi anayepata mshahara mkubwa zaidi barani humo.

Kerry to defend Iran deal in Mideast tour

By AFP | Washington - Tuesday, 28 July 2015

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry sets out this weekend on a multi-stop tour of the Middle East and Southeast Asia that will see him energetically defend the nuclear deal with Iran.

The peripatetic diplomat, still on crutches after breaking his femur in May, will travel to Egypt, Qatar, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam on August 2-8, his office said.

He is due in Cairo on Sunday to co-chair the U.S.-Egypt Strategic Dialogue with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, amid a tumultuous period between the traditionally close allies.

In late March, the United States lifted its freeze on annual military aid of $1.3 billion to Cairo.

But Washington kept up public condemnation of the brutal repression by President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi’s regime of supporters of his ousted predecessor, Mohamed Mursi.

“The bilateral dialogue reaffirms the United States’ longstanding and enduring partnership with Egypt,” Kerry’s spokesman John Kirby said in a statement.

It will also “provide a forum to discuss a broad range of political, economic, security and cultural issues to address issues of importance to each side and further our common values, goals and interests,” Kirby added.

Lowassa sasa rasmi Ukawa

By Waandishi Wetu, Mwananchi

Dar es Salaam. Katika dakika za mwishomwisho wakati wa mchakato wa kuwania urais kwa tiketi ya CCM, habari za mmoja wa wagombea aliyekuwa na nguvu katika kinyang’anyiro hicho, Edward Lowassa kwamba angeenguliwa zilivuma mno na kuibua swali la atakatwa hakatwi?

Lowassa aliondoka hotelini hapo  baada ya kukaa
Lowassa aliondoka hotelini hapo baada ya kukaa kikaoni kwa saa 1.38 (dakika 98). Aliagwa na viongozi mbalimbali wa Chadema.

Baada ya Kamati Kuu ya chama hicho (CC), kutangaza majina matano ya waliopitishwa katika hatua ya awali, bila ya jina lake kuwamo, likaibuka swali la pili; atatoka hatoki?

Sasa jibu la swali hilo la pili limepatikana. Ametoka na sasa ni rasmi kwamba atakuwa mgombea urais kupitia Ukawa.

Usiku wa kuamkia jana, Waziri Mkuu huyo wa zamani alihudhuria rasmi kikao cha Kamati Kuu ya Chadema katika kile kilichoelezwa kuwa ni kutambulishwa pamoja na kujadiliana mikakati ya kuing’oa CCM madarakani.

Baada ya jana mchana, viongozi wa Ukawa, Mwenyekiti wa NCCR – Mageuzi, James Mbatia; Mwenyekiti wa NLD, Dk Emmanuel Makaidi, Mwenyekiti wa Chadema Freeman Mbowe na Mwenyekiti wa CUF, Profesa Ibrahim Lipumba walikutana na waandishi wa habari Dar es Salaam na kumkaribisha rasmi Lowassa kwenye umoja huo huku wakitumia muda mrefu kumsafisha dhidi ya tuhuma mbalimbali ambazo amekuwa akihusishwa nazo.

Atinga Kamati Kuu Chadema

Mwandishi wetu alimshuhudia mbunge huyo wa Monduli akihudhuria kikao cha dharura cha Kamati Kuu ya Chadema juzi usiku.

Awali kikao hicho kilianza saa 9.30 alasiri katika Hoteli ya Ledger Bahari Beach, Dar es Salaam ambacho Wajumbe wa Kamati Kuu ya chama hicho walipata taarifa ya kufanyika kwa kikao hicho ghafla Jumamosi kati ya saa nne na tano usiku kwa kupigiwa simu, lakini hawakuambiwa ukumbi wala madhumuni ya kikao hicho zaidi ya kuambiwa kuwa wanatakiwa wawepo Dar es Salaam siku hiyo.

Lowassa kikaoni

Lowassa alialikwa kuhudhuria kikao hicho na aliwasili katika lango la kuingia kwenye hoteli hiyo saa 3.02 usiku akiwa ndani ya gari jeusi aina ya Toyota Lexus, akiwa amevalia suti nyeusi na shati jeupe na kupokewa na viongozi mbalimbali wa Chadema wakiongozwa na Mwenyekiti, Freeman Mbowe.

The discussion took place on the sidelines of the Special Olympics being held this week in Los Angeles, California.

Co-chaired by Dr Tim Shriver, chair of the Special Olympics committee, and Tony Lake, executive director of UNICEF, the roundtable brought together stakeholders from government, private sector and civil society.

Discussions centred around strengthening awareness on the status of people with intellectual disabilities, and how to raise more resources to support their special needs as well as promote more equitable participation in society.

President Kagame reiterated Rwanda’s strong commitment to inclusive development. He noted the country’s continued efforts to ensure increased participation by marginalised groups in all areas of national life, saying all Rwandans must participate and benefit from development.

Rwanda has 446,453 people living with disabilities, according to the 2012 census.

The National Council for People with Disabilities, established in 2010, serves as the central institution for advocacy and social mobilisation for issues of disability.

Serikali ya Burundi yatakiwa kuongea na wapinzani

Jamii ya kimataifa imeitaka serikali ya Burundi kukaa katika meza moja na wapinzani kwa lengo la kumaliza tofauti zilizopo baina yao.

Jamii hiyo ya kimataifa inayoujumuisha Umoja wa Ulaya, Marekani, Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki na asasi kadhaa za kimataifa, kwa nyakati tofauti zimeutaja uchaguzi mkuu uliompa ushindi Rais Pierre Nkurunziza wa Burundi kuwa usio na itibari na hivyo zimetaka kuandaliwa anga ya kufanyika mazungumzo baina ya serikali na wapinzani nchini humo.

Hayo yanakuja ikiwa ni siku tatu zimepita tangu kulipotangazwa matokeo rasmi ya uchaguzi mkuu huo, ambayo hata hivyo yamekataliwa na wapinzani. 

Hata hivyo serikali ya Uganda ambayo imekabidhiwa nafasi ya upatanishi katika utatuzi wa mgogoro wa nchi hiyo, haijatoa kauli rasmi kuhusiana na suala hilo. 

Agathon Rwasa, mkuu wa chama cha FNL kilichopigwa marufuku nchini Burundi ametangaza kuwa hatambui uchaguzi wa tarehe 21 mwezi huu. Machafuko na vurugu vimeendelea kushuhudiwa katika maeneo tofauti ya jijini la Bujumbura baina ya vijana wa upinzani na polisi.

CORD WAKATAA KUMFICHUA ‘NDUMAKUWILI’ ALIYEZOMEWA NA OBAMA

Na BENSON MATHEKA

VIONGOZI wa upinzani Jumatatu walikataa kufichua ni nani kati yao aliyekemewa na Rais Barack Obama. Badala yake, vinara wa Cord Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula na mwenzao wa Narc- Kenya Bi Martha Karua walisema walifurahia kukutana na Rais Obama.

Ingawa Rais Obama alinukuliwa akisema alimkemea mmoja wao alipomtaka asukume serikali ya Jubilee kurekebisha mambo fulani, viongozi hao walimsifia kwa kuelezea umuhimu wa demokrasia, kuangamiza ufisadi na kuheshimu mashirika ya kijamii.

“Alieleza wazi, sawa na tunavyosema kila wakati, kwamba demokrasia inahitaji majadiliano, kukosolewa na vyombo vya habari mashirika ya kijamii na kwamba taasisi hizi zinafaa kutiwa nguvu na wala si kukadamizwa au kuzimwa,” wakasema.

“ Rais ( Obama) alizungumzia kwa ujasiri suala la ufisadi akisema unaendelezwa kwa sababu limekuwa jambo la kawaida. Tumekuwa tukitoa onyo hilo na tunapanga kuendelea kupigana na ufisadi,” wakaongeza.

Akihutubia viongozi wa mashirika ya kijamii katika Chuo Kikuu cha Kenyatta baada ya kukutana na viongozi wa upinzani mnamo Jumapili, Rais Obama alisema aliwaambia waheshimu serikali iliyo mamlakani.

“Mmoja wao alinitaka nisukume serikali, lakini nikamwambia alipokuwa serikalini alikashifu Amerika akiitaka ikome kuingilia masuala ya serikali ya Kenya. Nilimwambia kuw Kenya ina serikali halali na wanafaa kushirikiana nayo,” akasema.

Bw Raila, ambaye alikuwa waziri mkuu katika serikali ya muungano, wakati mmoja alitaka mataifa ya magharibi yakome kuingilia masuala ya Kenya na Afrika kwa jumla kuhusu jinsi ya kujitawala.
