Afrika Kusini yaomba msaada kupambana na machafuko


Afrika Kusini imeomba msaada wa kidiplomasia kutoka kwa nchi mbalimbali za bara hilo kwa ajili ya kukabiliana na machafuko yanayoendelea nchini humo dhidi ya raia wa nchi za nje wanaoishi nchini humo. 

Watu wasiopungua wanne wameuawa nchini Afrika Kusini katika kipindi cha wiki mbili zilizopita katika machafuko hayo. 

Raia wa nchi za nje wamekuwa wakilalamika kuwa, polisi ya Afrika Kusini imeshindwa kuwalinda na kuwatetea na hivyo kushadidisha hali ya mvutano kati ya Pretoria na majirani zake sambamba na kuchochea chuki na uadui kwa Waafrika Kusini wanaofanya kazi nje ya nchi. 

Machafuko hayo ya kibaguzi yaliyoanza katika mji wa bandari wa Durban, yameenea hadi katika mji wa Johannesburg, ambako hii leo polisi wamefyatua risasi za plastiki na kurusha maguruneti ili kukomesha ghasia kati ya Waafrika Kusini na kundi la wahamiaji waliokuwa wamejizatiti kwa mapanga kwenye ghasia hizo. 

Waziri wa Mambo ya Nje wa Afrika Kusini Maite Nkoana-Mashabane amesema anaamini kuwa iwapo watashirikiana wanaweza kukomesha tatizo hilo. Bi Maite ameyasema hayo mjini Pretoria baada ya kuzungumza na wanadiplomasia wa nchi mbalimbali

Msikiti Moro wawakana ‘magaidi

Na Lilian Lucas, Mwananchi

Kilombero. Wakati msikiti wa Sunni uliopo Kidatu wilayani Kilombero ukimkana Hamadi Makwendo aliiyeuawa katika tukio la kuwakamata watu 10 wanaotuhumiwa kuhusika na vitendo vya ugaidi, dereva wa bajaji iliyowabeba baadhi ya watuhumiwa hao, amemuelezea mtu huyo kuwa alikuwa hana shughuli za kikazi zaidi ya kucheza karate.

Kamanda wa polisi wa mkoani Morogoro, Leonard Paul

Polisi aliyejeruhiwa kwenye sakata hilo na ambaye amehamishiwa kwenye hospitali ya polisi mjini Morogoro, pia amesimulia mkasa uliosababisha ajeruhiwe huku kukiwa na taarifa kuwa watuhumiwa hao 10 wamehamishiwa jijini Dar es Salaam kwa mahojiano zaidi.

Watu hao walimakatwa mapema juzi usiku kwenye msikiti wa Sunni uliopo Kidatu baada ya wasamaria wema kulitaarifu Jeshi la Polisi kuhusu kuwapo kwa watu wanaojihusisha na vitendo vya uhalifu.

Habari za uhakika zilizopatikana ndani ya Jeshi la Polisi zinasema watuhumiwa hao wamehamishiwa jijini Dar es Salaam kwa ajili ya mahojiano zaidi.

Kamanda wa polisi wa mkoani hapa, Leonard Paul (pichani) hakupatikana kuzungumzia suala hilo na hata alipotafutwa kwa simu, mlinzi wake alipokea na kueleza kuwa bosi huyo wa polisi alikuwa kwenye kikao kuanzia asubuhi na hakujua angemaliza wakati gani.

Mmoja wa viongozi wa msikiti wa Masjid Salah Al – Fajih, Mohamed Manze alisema wao kama viongozi na waumini hawakuwa na taarifa zozote za ujio wa watuhumiwa hao, na kwamba katika msikiti huo wapo vijana wanne ambao huwa wanalala na kujisomea.

Alisema siku ya tukio watuhumiwa hao walifika msikitini hapo saa 4:00 usiku wakati ibada ya mwisho ikiwa imeshafanyika na waumini kutawanyika.

Waislamu TZ watakiwa kujiepusha na uvunjaji amani

Mkuu wa Jeshi la Polisi (IGP) nchini Tanzania, Ernest Mangu na viongozi wa dini ya Kiislamu nchini humo, wameungana kwa pamoja na kukemea vitendo vya uhalifu nchini humo. 

Viongozi hao wamezitaka familia kutoa malezi bora kwa watoto wao ili kuondokana na wimbi la watu wanaojiingiza katika vitendo hivyo. 

Mkuu wa Jeshi la Polisi Inspekta Jenerali Mangu amesema viongozi wa dini wana dhamana kubwa katika kuhakikisha vitendo vya uhalifu vinadhibitiwa nchini kwa kuwaelimisha waumini wao na jamii kwa ujumla juu ya madhara ya uhalifu.

Mwakilishi wa Mufti Mkuu wa Tanzania katika kikao hicho ambaye ni Mjumbe wa Baraza Kuu la Ulamaa katika Baraza Kuu la Waislamu Nchini (BAKWATA), Sheikh Abubakar Zuberi alisema kuna haja ya kuziba nyufa za uvunjifu wa amani, ambazo zimeanza kujitokeza nchini.

Naye Katibu Mkuu wa Jumuiya ya Wanazuoni wa Kiislamu, Sheikh Khamis Mataka alisema uhalifu unaweza kujitokeza sehemu yoyote na hata ndani ya msikiti, hivyo ni jukumu la viongozi wa misikiti kuwafichua wahalifu walio ndani ya misikiti.

Abadi softens criticism of Saudi airstrikes in Yemen

AFP, Washington. Friday, 17 April 2015

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi sought Thursday to walk back sharp criticism of the Saudi air campaign against Shiite militias in Yemen and welcomed news that the Saudi embassy in Baghdad will reopen soon.

Abadi had told reporters Wednesday that there was “no logic to the operation at all in the first place,” according to The New York Times. “Mainly the problem of Yemen is within Yemen.”

But the Iraqi leader told a Washington think tank on Thursday that while he was “frank” about the situation in Yemen, “my intention is not to criticize anybody.”

Abadi, a Shiite, told the Center for Strategic and International Studies: “We are on the same boat in the region. If anybody makes a hole in that boat, we all will sink.

“We have suffered so much from wars in Iraq. We are very sensitive to wars, very sensitive to humanitarian costs.

“And in our own belief we think an end to this war of Yemen must be very soon and the only way forward is a political solution by Yemenis themselves.”

He stressed: “We are only giving some advice, some opinion on this. We don't intervene in their own affairs, and ask them not to intervene in our own.”

Diplomatic relations between Saudi Arabia and Iraq were severed in 1990, but restored in 2004 after the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime.

Johannesburg - A teacher who allegedly assaulted pupils at Boitumelong High School in Tembisa, on the East Rand, has been given a notice of intention to suspend him, the Gauteng education department said on Friday.

A video of the incident was posted on Facebook.

It took place at one of the schools chosen by Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi to be paperless, with wi-fi, interactive boards and tablets for pupils.

"It [the incident] came to the department's attention two weeks ago, before Easter," provincial education spokesperson Phumla Sekhonyane said.

"We have given the educator notice of intention to suspend. He has until today [Friday] to respond."

The video shows a teacher talking to two teenage male pupils at the front of the classroom, near the interactive boards.

He then kicks at one of the pupils, and several of the other pupils in the class respond with laughter.

Tanzanians living in Yemen to flee

The Government has embarked on plans to repatriate Tanzanians living in Yemen as competing forces battle for control of the country.

Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Minister Bernard MembeForeign Affairs and International Cooperation Minister Bernard Membe

The Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mr Bernard Membe, made the remark on Thursday while meeting with the Tanzanian ambassador to Oman, Mr Ali Ahmed Saleh, where he stressed that it is the government’s responsibility to ensure the safe return of the Tanzanians, most of whom are students.

According to a statement issued to the media yesterday, the first group of 25 Tanzanians was assisted by the Embassy of Tanzania in Mascut, Oman, to return home, while efforts to register more Tanzanians for repatriation continue.

“I have authorised the use of emergency funds to ensure our brothers and sisters who are in danger in Yemen return home safely,” Mr Membe noted.

Many of the Tanzanians, who arrived in Sarfat and Al-Mazyouna towns at the border of Oman and Yemen, sent out distress calls to the embassy detailing the dangerous environment they are living in and requesting assistance to return home.

“Under the direction of Mr Membe, the exercise to bring back the second group will start, whereby all 64 Tanzanians will be allowed to get into Oman and from there, they will be flown back home,” Ambassador Saleh explained.

Chadema: Hakuna kulala, hakuna kula

Na Nuzulack Dausen na Peter Elias, Mwananchi

Dar es Salaam. Chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (Chadema) jana kilizindua mkakati wake wa ushindi “Hakuna kulala, hakuna kula mpaka kieleweke” katika Uchaguzi Mkuu wa Oktoba kwa kufungua mafunzo yatakayoendeshwa nchi nzima kwa viongozi wa vyama na Serikali za Mitaa.

Katika mkakati huo, chama hicho kimeigawa nchi katika kanda 10 za utekelezaji huku kikijipanga kuimarisha nguvu zaidi katika Jiji la Dar es Salaam lenye idadi kubwa ya wapigakura.

Mwenyekiti wa Chadema, Freeman Mbowe alisema wakati wa uzinduzi wa mkakati huo kitaifa jijini hapa kuwa watafundisha viongozi wote wa chama hicho na watangaza nia, mbinu za uongozi bora na namna ya kushinda.

Mbowe alisema mpango huo wa mafunzo ni sehemu ya utekelezaji wa maazimio ya chama kwa kuwa hawawezi kushika Serikali Kuu na Serikali za Mitaa bila kuwa na viongozi bora na weledi.

Alisema Chadema kitakwenda katika kanda zote, majimbo ya kichama 242, kata 4,852, matawi 22, 749, misingi 64,803 na kuwafikia viongozi 224,287 na timu zote za mafunzo zimeshatawanyika nchi nzima.

“Tunawafundisha viongozi wetu walio tayari ndani ya chama au Serikali za Mitaa namna ya kutekeleza wajibu wao. Lakini tunawaimarisha wanaokusudia kugombea nafasi mbalimbali kuwa wagombea wazuri zaidi, kuandaa ajenda za chama na namna ya kukamata madaraka kwa kuwa safari ya kushika Dola 2015 haina kizuizi,” alisema Mbowe huku akishangiliwa.

Kuahirisha uchaguzi

Katika mkutano huo uliohudhuriwa na mamia ya viongozi na watia nia wa Kanda ya Pwani ya chama hicho, Mbowe aliitaka Serikali kutojaribu kabisa kuahirisha Uchaguzi Mkuu kwa sababu ya kusuasua kwa uandikishaji wa daftari la kudumu la wapigakura kwa kutumia teknolojia ya Biometric Voters Registration (BVR) akitishia kuwa ‘moto utawaka’.

‘Come to your senses,’ Pope tells terrorists behind Garissa attack

By Everlyne Kwamboka and Reuters

Pope Francis Thursday appealed to Somali Islamist militants who killed 148 people at Garissa University College two weeks ago to stop their brutality and “come to their senses”.

Pope Francis delivers his blessing during his weekly general audience in St Peter's Square in the Vatican on Wednesday.
Pope Francis delivers his blessing during his weekly general audience in St Peter’s Square in the Vatican on Wednesday.

He told Kenyan bishops visiting the Vatican that he prayed for those killed by acts of terror, ethnic and tribal hostilities in Kenya and elsewhere in Africa.

“I think most especially of the men and women killed at Garissa University College on Good Friday,” the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics said. “May those who commit such brutality come to their senses and seek mercy.”

The gunmen killed Christians while sparing Muslims during the attack. The Pope, who has repeatedly expressed concern about Christians being targeted over their faith, also condemned the beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya in February.

He urged the visiting bishops to work with Christian and non-Christian leaders to promote peace in Kenya.

The Kenyan Catholic bishops are at the Holy See to give a briefing of how the Church has performed in the country.

Led by Cardinal John Njue, the delegation of more than 30 serving and retired bishops left the country on Saturday following a special invitation by the Pope.

Mivutano yaongezeka wakati wa kukaribia uchaguzi wa rais nchini Burundi

Harakati za vyama mbalimbali vya siasa na makundi ya kijamii nchini Burundi zimeongezeka katika kipindi hiki cha kukaribia kufanyika uchaguzi mkuu nchini humo. 

Hii ni katika hali ambayo, tokea ulipotangazwa muda wa kufanyika uchaguzi wa rais na bunge mwaka uliopita, vuguvugu na joto la kisiasa linazidi kupanda siku hadi siku nchini humo. Tume ya Taifa ya Uchaguzi ya Burundi ilitangaza kwamba uchaguzi wa rais na bunge utafanyika tarehe 26 Juni mwaka huu. 

Ijapokuwa baada ya kupita miaka kadhaa ya vita na mapigano yaliyopelekea mamia ya maelfu ya watu kuuawa, mfumo wa utawala hivi sasa nchini Burundi ni wa kidemokrasia, lakini nchi hiyo kama zilivyo baadhi ya nchi nyingine za Kiafrika, inakabiliwa na matatizo ya kisiasa. 

Wimbi la malalamiko ya wapinzani liliongezeka nchini humo baada ya Rais Pierre Nkurunziza aliyeingia madarakani mwaka 2005 kuonyesha nia ya kutaka kugombea urais kwa mara ya tatu. 

Kwa mujibu wa katiba ya Burundi, rais anaweza kuhudumu kwa muda wa mihula miwili ya miaka mitano mitano, lakini Rais Nkurunziza amesikika akisema kuwa, kipindi cha pili cha uongozi wake alichaguliwa kwa kura za wananchi lakini kipindi cha kwanza aliingia madarakani kwa kuchaguliwa na wabunge.

KENYA: MMOJA AFARIKI BAADA YA BASI KUSOMBWA NA MAJI MANDERA

Na LUCAS BARASA na MANASE OTSIALO

ABIRIA mmoja amethibitishwa kumefariki baada ya maji ya mafuriko kusomba basi lililokuwa likisafiri kutoka Mandera kwenda Nairobi Alhamisi alfajiri.

Mshirikishi wa Shirika la Msalaba Mwekundu (KRCS) kaunti ya Mandera Ahmed Mohamed alisema “tulipata mwili mmoja lakini ripoti zisizothibitishwa zinaeleza kuwa huenda watu wengine wawili zaidi pia waliangamia katika mkasa huo.”

Akiongea na Taifa Leo kwa njia ya simu, Bw Mohamed alisema abiria 42 waliokuwa ndani ya basi hilo lililosombwa na mafuriko lilipojaribu kuvuka mto mdogo katika eneo la Gadudia saa nane alfajiri.

“Rekodi ilionyesha kuwa basi hilo lilikuwa na abiria 50 lilipoanza safari Mandera. Lakini abiria walisema liliwabeba abiria wengine katika vituo kadha njiani,” Bw Mohammed alisema.

“Kufikia sasa haijathibitishwa kama watu watatu ambao haijulikani waliko kama walifariki. Tumepata mwili mmoja,” Bw Mohammed alisema.

Bw Mohammed alisema shughuli ya uokoaji inayohusisha wahudumu wa KRCS, wanajeshi na asasi zingine za serikali ilikuwa inaendelea. “Tutaendelea kuwapasha habari kadri opere
sheni hii inavyoendelea,” alisema.

Afisa huyo wa KRCS alisema basi hilo ambalo lilipinduka baada ya kuangushwa na maji ya mto huo ulifurika liliondolewa majini baada ya kukwama kwenye matope kwa muda.
