Viongozi wa Mandera, wakaazi waahidi kukabiliana na msimamo mkali baada ya mashambulio ya al-Shabaab

Na Bosire Boniface, Garissa

Kufuatia mashambulio mawili ya mauaji ya al-Shabaab katika basi la abiria na machimbo huko Mandera, wakaazi wanajitahidi kutojihusisha na kundi la ugaidi na kutafuta njia za kuwaodoa vijana kwenye msimamo mkali.

Wakaazi wa Mandera wamekusanyika katika uwanja wa michezo wa Moi tarehe 4 Disemba, ambako viongozi wa siasa na usalama waliwaomba wakaazi kusaidia kurejesha usalama katika kaunti baada ya mashambulio mawili ya mauaji ya al-Shabaab. [Bosire Boniface/Sabahi]

Katika jitihada za kuongeza maelewano ya kidini na kurejesha rasilimali za kiuchumi za kaunti, viongozi wa dini wa eneo, viongozi, wabunge, maofisa wa usalama na umma kwa ujumla wanashirikiana kuilaani al-Shabaab na kutafuta njia za kupambana na msimamo mkali.

Kaunti ya Mandera imekuwa ikijitangaza yenyewe ili kuwavutia wawekezaji wa biashara na fursa za maendeleo, lakini mashambulio ya al-Shabaab ya hivi karibuni yanazuia maendeleo, Gavana wa kaunti ya Mandera Ali Roba aliiambia Sabahi.

Mashambulio hayo, ambayo yaliua watu wasio Waislamu 64, na baadaye kutoa wito kwa watumishi wa umma kuondoka katika kaunti iliyoathiriwa katika "kiini cha nguvu kazi ya kaunti", alisema.

"Hakuna mtu aliye pekee. Kila mtu ni muhimu katika kusimamia maendeleo ya kaunti bila ya kujali dini yao," alisema.

Viongozi wa Kaunti ya Manderawameshikana mikono kama alama ya mshikamano wakati wa mkutano wausalamakatika uwanja wa usalama uliofanyika katika uwanja wa michezo wa Moi huko Mandera tarehe 9 Disemba. [Picha ya Bosire Boniface/Sabahi]

Mara tu baada ya mashambulio, viongozi wa kaunti na wa kitaifa walifanya mfululizo wa mikutano katika ukumbi wa mji kuwashawishi watumishi wa umma dhidi ya kuondoka katika kaunti, Roba alisema. Pia walikutana na vikundi vya dini, wanawake na vijana ili kujenga kuungwa mkono na umma kwa ajili ya kupambana dhidi ya al-Shabaab.

Uhuru gets Christmas gift in dropped ICC case

By WAHOME THUKU

Kenya: The turn of events in the case against President Uhuru Kenyatta at the International Criminal Court ( ICC) was the most dramatic highlights, not only in the Kenya, but also in the court’s calender this year.

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta

First was Uhuru’s appearance before Trial Chamber V(b) on October 8, and then the withdrawal of his case by the Office of the Persecutor (OTP) on December 5.

President Kenyatta has been the prominent face of Kenya at the ICC. But since he attended the pre-trial proceedings in 2011, he had never travelled to The Hague for any proceedings.

On March 31, this year, the start of his case was adjourned to October 7. On September 19, it was again adjourned indefinitely and a status conference set to discuss the the progress of the case.

The summons by the Chamber for Uhuru to appear in person during the status conference on October 8, sent the world into speculation.

The question was whether he was going to honour the summons and become the first sitting head of state to appear before The Hague-based court.

In Kenya, political allies and critics were split along the middle, with some asking him to ignore the summons while others prevailing on him to attend the court to avoid having warrants for his arrest being issued, thereby making him an international fugitive.

Eventually, Uhuru decided to travel to The Hague but not before causing a political stir when he announced he had handed over presidential authority to his deputy William Ruto and that he would be traveling as an ordinary citizen.

Obama praises Vatican for ‘very important’ role in deal to free American from Castro’s prison – and channels Stalin as he says ‘the Pope doesn’t have an army’

By FRANCESCA CHAMBERS FOR MAILONLINE

The Pope 'played a very important role' in opening up a dialogue between the United States and Cuba, says President Barack Obama.

'The Pope doesn't wield armies. He can't impose sanctions, but he can speak with great moral authority, and that makes a difference,' the U.S. president said in an interview that aired today on Good Morning America.

'And it certainly made a difference in this case,' he added.

Pope Francis and President Barack Obama shake hands during a private audience on March 27, 2014 at the Vatican.  The meeting preceded talks between U.S. and Cuban officials in October at the Vatican that led to an announcement on Wednesday that the countries had reestablished diplomatic relations

Obama, consciously or not, channeled a famous Stalin statement about the power of the Pope.

Soviet Dictator Joseph Stalin is said to have written off the importance of the Pope in a conversation with French Prime Minister Pierre Laval and British Prime Minister Winston ChurchilI.

In his book The Second World War, Churchill writes that in 1935 Stalin told Laval flippantly, 'The Pope! How many divisions has he got?'

While the Pope was not directly involved in the talks between the U.S. and Cuba, according to the White House, the Vatican played host to at least one discussion between 'high-level administration officials' from both countries 'in a meeting that was hosted by members of the Pope’s team.'

Jimmy Kimmel to Sony: 'Have some backbone'

There's mixed opinion on Sony's decision to cancel the release of 'The Interview' after threats from hackers. Some say it's the safe bet while others, especially in Hollywood, think the studio is caving to the hacker's demands.

Na JUMA NAMLOLA

KULIZUKA vurugu bungeni Alhamisi asubuhi wabunge wa muungano wa Upinzani Cord walipovuruga shughuli wakitaka wapewe muda zaidi wa kupitia mapendekezo yaliyotolewa kwenye ripoti tatu za kamati ya Bunge.

Spika Justin Muturi alilazimika kuingilia kati na kuahirisha kikao hicho kwa nusu saa, baada ya kubainika wazi kwamba shughuli hazingeendelea.

Bw Muturi alichukua hatua hiyo baada ya kuamuri kwamba maseneta watano wa Cord waliokuwa kwenye eneo la juu la Bunge, ambako kawaida hukaliwa na wageni, watoke.

“Mkuu wa usalama, nataka hao watu watolewe nje,” akasema huku maseneta hao wakiendelea kukaa kitako.

Maseneta James Orengo, Johnstone Muthama, Janet Ongera na Dkt Bony Khalwale waliongozwa na kiongozi wa wachane Bw Moses Wetangula.

Dkt Khalwale aliyevaa fulana nyeusi aliwapungia mkono wanahabari walipoelekeza kamera katika eneo hilo la wageni.

“Wameingiaje hapa. Hawa ni wageni wasiotakiwa,” akasema Bw Muturi.

Fujo zilianza pale Naibu wa Spika, Bi Joyce Laboso alipochukua uenyekiti wa kamati nzima ya Bunge, kujadili ripoti ya kamati ya Bunge kuhusu Usalama. Mwenyekiti wa Kamati hiyo Bw Asman Kamama alikuwa akiendelea kusoma mapendekezo yake pale mbunge wa Suba, Bw John Bandi alipomnyemelea na kunyakua karatasi aliyokuwa akiitumia.

Dk. Shein alisema kuwa maendeleo hayachagui mtu wala eneo analotoka hivyo Serikali anayoiongoza itahakikisha inawapelekea maendeleo wananchi wote kwani hilo ndio jukumu la Serikali na pia ni malengo ya Mapinduzi ya Januari 12, 1964.

Kagame traveled to Angola for a one-day working visit, accompanied by foreign affairs Minister Louise Mushikiwabo.

Kagame’s office tweeted shortly before the meeting that President Dos Santos and President Kagame were “holding a bilateral meeting”.

However, Kagame’s visit comes at a time when Rwandan FDLR rebels operating in DR Congo have only until January 2, 2015 to disarm or else be forcefully disarmed.

Do Santos is the current chair of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR), set up in 2002 to seek solutions for regional conflicts, including the disarmement of Rwandan rebels.

DRC has said upon the expiry of the ultimatum, there will be no more time to talks with the rebels.

DRC Spokesman Lambert Mende said on Tuesday that, “Our armed forces [FARDC] and partners (MONUSCO) will launch a military offensive to forcefully disarm the FDLR [(Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda].”

Profesa Tibaijuka: sina hatia, siwezi kujiuzuru

Na Peter Edson

Siku Moja baada ya kujiuzuri kwa Mwanasheria mkuu Jaji Fredrick Werema, Waziri wa Ardhi, Nyumba na Maendeleo ya Makazi, Profesa Anna Tibaijuka kwa mara nyingine amejitokeza hadharani na kutoa msimamo wake kwamba hana sababu ya kujiuzuru kwenye nafasi yake kwa kuwa hakuhusika kwa namna yeyote kwenye sakata la uchotwaji wa mabilioni kwenye akaunti ya Escrow.


Waziri wa Ardhi, Nyumba na Maendeleo ya Makazi, Profesa Anna Tibaijuka

Akizungumza na waandishi wa habari asubuhi jijini Dar es Salaam, Profesa Tibaijuka amesema kuwa pamoja na kuwepo kwa shinikizo la kutaka kujiuzuru, yeye binafsi ameona hana sababu ya kufanya hivyo kwani kufanya hivyo ni kukubali kuwa amehusika moja kwa moja kwenye kashfa hiyo jambo ambalo si la kweli.

Profesa Tibaijuka amekwenda mbali zaidi na kusema kuwa uvumi unaoendelea kusambazwa mitaani ni ishara mbaya kwani unawaaminisha wananchi kuwa amehusika katika sakata hilo wakati yeye hajahusika na jambo lolote.

“Huu uvumi unatakiwa kuachwa, sioni sababu yeyote ya mimi kujiuzuru kwa kuwa sijahusika kwa namna yeyote kwenye sakata hili la Escrow” anasema Profesa Anna Tibaijuka.

Palestinian leader supports more talks on U.N. bid

AP Reuters Thursday, 18 December 2014

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas says he supports further negotiations over a draft resolution on ending Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands that was submitted to the U.N. Security Council for a possible vote.

Abbas told a Palestinian leadership meeting Thursday that “we will continue in our consultations with the brothers and friends through deliberations, which will take place at the United Nations.”

The resolution, submitted Wednesday, calls for Israeli security forces to be withdrawn no later than the end of 2017 from territories captured during the 1967 Middle East War.

The Palestinians have been pressing for some sort of action in the U.N.’s most powerful body. Council member Jordan sponsored the resolution after a day of talks among Arab states.

Israel fiercely opposes any suggestions that the Security Council can set a framework for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, which broke down again in the spring after the two sides couldn’t agree on ground rules.
