BENZEMA STRIKES AS REAL MADRID EDGE BAYERN IN TENSE SEMI

BENZEMA STRIKES AS REAL MADRID EDGE BAYERN IN TENSE SEMI

By Paul Hassall -Eurosport

KARIM Benzema struck a priceless winner as Real Madrid edged Bayern Munich 1-0 in an intriguing Champions League semi-final first-leg at the Bernabeu.
The France international finished off a lightning counter attack on 19 minutes when he coolly converted Fabio Coentrao's low cross from the left.
Bayern dominated possession from kick off but struggled to manufacture chances against a resilient Real rearguard.
The hosts looked the more threatening on the break, however, and should have extended their advantage but both Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria blazed over when well placed.
Pep Guardiola's men continued to press late on and almost levelled when Mario Goetze fizzed a volley straight at Iker Casillas five minutes from time.

KEY MOMENTS
PRE-MATCH: Bale out, Ronaldo and Neuer start: Real's Copa del Rey hero, Gareth Bale is only well enough for the bench after struggling with flu. However, Cristiano Ronaldo returns following a hamstring problem. Bayern welcome back Bastian Schweinsteiger from suspension and are boosted by the availability of keeper, Manuel Neuer.
19' - GOAL! Real Madrid 1-0 Bayern Munich. A lightning Real counter sees Ronaldo pick out the overlapping Fabio Coentrao on the left side of the area. The Portuguese full-back does brilliantly to drill a low ball across the six-yard box, allowing Benzema to coolly convert.
26' - REAL MADRID CHANCE! Another stunning counter attack sees Benzema lay a first-time cross from the left into the path of Ronaldo who somehow blasts it over the bar. A big miss and doesn't Ronaldo know it as he screams in frustration.
41' - REAL MADRID CHANCE! Angel Di Maria chests down Isco's left-wing cross at the far post and volleys a shot way over the bar. Another fantastic opportunity goes begging for the hosts.
68' - GOOD SAVE! Coentrao takes a quick free kick and releases Ronaldo on the left. The Portuguese takes a couple of touches and lashes a low shot towards the near post that Neuer pushes away for a corner.
81' - BAYERN CHANCE! Robben and Goetze combine to tee up Muller who sees his 20 yard drive deflect just wide.
85' - SUPERB SAVE! Casillas pulls off a stunning stop to keep out Goetze who fizzes a volley straight at the stopper from eight yards out. That was Bayern's first really big chance of the game.

TALKING POINT: Will Real regret those missed chances? Madrid may well have the advantage heading to Munich, but they could live to regret the glaring misses by Ronaldo and Di Maria in the first half. They took a 3-0 lead to Dortmund in the last round and just about survived, so Bayern will definitely fancy their chances of overturning the deficit and booking a place in Lisbon - if they can rediscover their attacking potency.

KEY STATS
Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have met each other 15 times in the Champions League, equalling the record for most frequent encounter in the competition (Shared with Barcelona versus AC Milan).
Bayern Munich have lost for the first time in 10 knockout matches in the Champions League.
Ancelotti has never lost against Bayern Munich as manager in the Champions League (5 wins, 2 draws all with AC Milan).

Guardiola loses a match at the Bernabeu (as a manager) for the first time in eight visits.

MAN OF THE MATCH
Luka Modric (Real Madrid): The former Spurs midfielder showed glimpses of his attacking threat with some clever passes on the counter, but it was his defensive work that really stood out as Real kept Bayern at bay.

CHELSEA TRIO MOURINHO, FARIA, RAMIRES CHARGED BY FA

CHELSEA TRIO MOURINHO, FARIA, RAMIRES CHARGED BY FA

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, his assistant Rui Faria and midfielder Ramires have been charged by the Football Association for their actions in last Saturday's controversial loss to Sunderland.
The relegation-threatened Black Cats won the Premier League contest 2-1, ending Mourinho's 77-match unbeaten home league run with the Blues.
Mourinho could not hide his anger afterwards behind a sarcastic appraisal of the officials, while Faria was dismissed for angrily confronting the match officials.
Ramires avoided punishment at the time of his flailing arm striking Sebastian Larsson but now faces a retrospective punishment which could prematurely end his domestic season.
A FA statement read: "The FA has charged three members of Chelsea's staff following their fixture against Sunderland at Stamford Bridge on April 19, 2014.
"Chelsea midfielder Ramires has been charged by The FA for violent conduct following an off-the-ball incident that was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.
"Rui Faria, Chelsea's assistant manager, has been charged with two counts of misconduct.
"It is alleged that in the 83rd minute of the fixture, Faria used abusive and/or insulting words towards the fourth official (Phil Dowd). It also alleged that Faria's behaviour following the match referee's (Mike Dean) request that he leave the technical area amounted to improper conduct.
"Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct in respect of post-match comments he made following the fixture.
"It is alleged that Mourinho's comments constitute improper conduct, in that they call into question the integrity of the referee appointed to the above fixture and/or the integrity of Mr Mike Riley, general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited, and/or the comments bring the game into disrepute."
A three-man panel of former elite referees reviewed the Ramires incident as it was not seen by match officials and "were unanimous that it was an act of violent conduct".
The Brazilian, who has been sent off twice this season, was playing only his second match following a three-match ban applied following his dismissal at Aston Villa, after which Mourinho was fined £8,000 for improper conduct for approaching match referee Chris Foy.
Ramires has until 6pm on Thursday evening to respond to the charge, while Mourinho and Faria have until 6pm next Monday to consider their responses.
Faria's case has been designated a "non-standard" one by the FA "due to the aggressive and/or threatening and/or serious nature of the reported behaviour."
It is the third time Mourinho has faced FA disciplinary action this term.
As well as the Villa Park incident which has left him seething, Mourinho was fined B£8,000 after accepting a charge following his dismissal against Cardiff in October.
TBS, ZBS WAZUNGUMZA KUMPATA WA KUWAKILISHA ISO

TBS, ZBS WAZUNGUMZA KUMPATA WA KUWAKILISHA ISO

Shirika la Viwango Tanzania (TBS) limesema lipo katika mazungumzo na Shirika la Viwango la Zanzibar (ZBS), kukubaliana nini kifanyike kupata uwakilishi mmoja kwenye Shirika la Viwango la Kimataifa (ISO).
Kwa mujibu wa TBS, ISO inatambua uwakilishi wa shirika moja la viwango kutoka katika nchi mwanachama, lakini Tanzania inayotambuliwa kama nchi ina mashirika mawili, hivyo kuleta ugumu kwenye shirika hilo kuhusu utambuzi.
Akizungumza Dar es Salaam hivi karibuni, Mkurugenzi wa viwango wa shirika hilo, Leandri Kinabo alisema, kutokana na sharti hilo, Tanzania haina budi kutaja uwakilishi mmoja.
“Kwa sababu Tanzania Bara tuna shirika letu la viwango yaani TBS na Zanzibar wana la kwao yaani ZBS, tunapaswa kukubaliana na kutoka na jibu moja la shirika lipi litambuliwe na ISO kama mwakilishi katika nchi au nini kifanyike kutuwakilisha wote.
“Tunapotajwa kuwa ni nchi moja ni lazima tuwakilishwe na shirika moja la viwango katika ngazi hiyo ya kimataifa. Kinyume na hapo, tunakuwa tumekiuka matakwa ya ISO, hivyo kujiweka katika hatihati ya kutotambuliwa,” alisema.
Kinabo ambaye alizungumza kwa niaba ya Kaimu Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa TBS, Joseph Masikitiko alisema, tayari TBS ilikwisha anza mazungumzo na ZBS na kwamba, kutokana na umuhimu wa jambo lenyewe, bado wanaendelea kuzungumza kuhakikisha wanafikia uamuzi sahihi bila kupoteza wakati.
USAJILI MABASI YA DART WASOGEZWA MBELE

USAJILI MABASI YA DART WASOGEZWA MBELE

Wakala wa Mradi wa Mabasi Yaendayo Haraka Dar es Salaam (DART) umesogeza hadi kesho mchakato wa usajili wa mabasi ya abiria (Daladala) yanayopita katika barabara ya Morogoro au kukatiza katika njia hiyo.
Awali mchakato huo ulioanza Machi 3, mwaka huu, ulipangwa kumalizika Aprili 21, lakini umesogezwa hadi kesho kufidia siku za Sikukuu ya Pasaka. 
Akitangaza kuongezwa kwa siku za usajili huo, Mhandisi wa Wakala huo, John Shauri alisema jana jijini Dar es Salaam: “Tumeona ni vyema kusogeza siku hadi Ijumaa ili kutoa nafasi kwa wamiliki kumalizia vyema usajili huu.”
Akitoa ufafanuzi zaidi alisema wamiliki wa daladala ambao hawajajisajili watumie muda huo ulioongezwa ili kufanikisha zoezi hilo kwa kiwango cha juu.
Hatua hiyo ya kuandikisha mabasi hayo ya abiria ni moja ya matayarisho ya kupisha mradi huo wa mabasi yaendayo haraka.
Kwa sasa wakala huo uko kwenye mchakato wa kuwezesha upatikanaji wa watoa huduma kwenye mfumo mpya wa mabasi yaendayo haraka awamu ya kwanza ambayo inajumuisha Barabara ya Morogoro, Kawawa na Mtaa wa Msimbazi kwa njia kuu na nyingine za kiungo.
Kulingana na mpango wa uendeshaji wa mfumo wa DART, barabara zinazohusika zitapaswa kutumiwa na mabasi ya mfumo huo pekee.
Kwa mujibu wa Shauri, jumla ya njia 64 zitakoma kutumika kutokana na kuanza kwa mradi huo.
Alitaja baadhi ya njia zitakazoguswa na mpango huo kuwa ni pamoja na Mbagala Rangi 3 kwenda Masaki, Vingunguti kwenda Makumbusho, Kunduchi Kwenda Mwenge, na Msata kwenda Ubungo.
Njia nyingine ni Kariakoo kwenda Makumbusho, Buguruni kwenda Kawe, Kivukoni kwenda Mburahati, Mbagala Kuu kwenda Mwenge, na Mkata kwenda Ubungo.
Njia nyingine ni Mburahati kwenda Muhimbili, Segerea kwenda Mwenge, Vingunguti kwenda Kawe, Vingunguti kwenda Mbezi, Kunduchi kwenda Posta, na Kunduchi kwenda Makumbusho.
Alizitaja njia nyingine kuwa ni Temeke kwenda Masaki, Kivukoni kwenda Mabibo, Muhimbili kwenda Mabibo, Posta kwenda Ubungo, Posta kwenda Mabibo, Kawe kwenda Kimara, Kivukoni kwenda Mbezi, Mwenge kwenda Mbezi, Posta kwenda Mbezi, Mbezi kwenda Tegeta na Bunju kwenda Makumbusho.
Katika mpango huo wamiliki hao wa daladala wanatakiwa kwenda ofisi za DART wakiwa na nakala ya leseni ya SUMATRA, nakala ya usajili wa gari, na nakala za rangi za leseni za madereva wao.
WANAHARAKATI WASIHI NAFASI ZAIDI KWA WANAWAKE

WANAHARAKATI WASIHI NAFASI ZAIDI KWA WANAWAKE

Baraza la Wawakilishi Zanzibar lina wanawake watatu pekee wanaotoka katika majimbo ya uchaguzi huku jumla ya wanawake wote ikiwa ni 26 kati ya wajumbe wote 82 hali ambayo wanaharakati wametaka kundi hilo lipewe nafasi zaidi kugombea nafasi za juu za uongozi. 
Kutokana na uwiano huo, vyama vya siasa nchini vimetakiwa kutoa kipaumbele na kushirikisha  wanawake katika kugombea nafasi mbali mbali za juu za uongozi katika vyombo vya uamuzi.
Mratibu wa Chama cha Waandishi wa Habari Wanawake (Tamwa), Mzuri Issa alisema licha ya kuwepo nafasi za viti maalumu, uteuzi huo haujatosheleza kufikia malengo ya usawa wa kijinsia katika maendeleo.
“Kwa mfano alisema katika Baraza la Wawakilishi lenye wajumbe 82, ni 26 tu wanawake katika nafasi za viti maalumu huku watatu wakitoka katika majimbo ya uchaguzi,” alisema.
Aliendelea kusema, “Vyama vya siasa vinatakiwa kutoa kipaumbele kwa wanawake kugombea nafasi za uongozi katika majimbo ya uchaguzi.”
Alitoa mfano wa Chama cha Wananchi (CUF) kuwa hakijatoa kipaumbele kwa wanawake kugombea nafasi za uongozi kwani katika uchaguzi wa mwaka 2010 hakuna mwanamke aliyesimamishwa katika majimbo ya uchaguzi tofauti na CCM.
Mzuri alitaja nchi za Ulaya ikiwemo Denmark pamoja na Sweden ambazo zimetoa kipaumbele kwa wanawake kugombea nafasi za  uongozi kiasi kwamba, kwa sasa hakuna nafasi zilizotengwa maalumu kwa wanawake.
Alitaja pia nchi za Afrika, hususani Ghana, Msumbiji, Afrika Kusini pamoja na Rwanda kwamba zimefanikiwa kwa asilimia 64  kwa wanawake kugombea nafasi za uongozi.
Tamwa inaendesha kampeni  kuhakikisha vyama vya siasa vinatoa kipaumbele na nafasi kwa wanawake kushiriki katika uongozi.
WALEMAVU WAKOSA HUDUMA ZA AFYA YA UZAZI

WALEMAVU WAKOSA HUDUMA ZA AFYA YA UZAZI

Watu wengi wenye ulemavu wanadaiwa kutopata huduma za afya ya uzazi na uzazi wa mpango.
Hayo yamebainishwa jana jijini Dar es Salaam na mwasilishaji wa madai, Mengi Ntinginyi  kwenye kongamano la 28 la sayansi lililoandaliwa na Taasisi ya Utafiti wa Magonjwa ya Binadamu (NIMR).
Katika mada hiyo iliyohusu vikwanzo vya upatikanaji wa huduma ya afya ya uzazi na uzazi wa mpango kwa watu wenye ulemavu, alisema utafiti uliofanywa mwaka jana umebaini kundi hilo halipati huduma na linatengwa.
“Pamoja na watu wenye ulemavu kutopata huduma hiyo, lakini wachache ndio wanaojua huduma ya afya ya uzazi na uzazi wa mpango,” alisema.
Alisema ubaguzi na unyanyapaa katika utoaji huduma ya afya ya uzazi na uzazi wa mpango kwa watu wenye ulemavu ni moja ya vikwazo vikubwa kwa watu hao kutopatiwa huduma hiyo.
“Watoa huduma wamekuwa wakiwalaumu wanawake wenye ulemavu wajawazito pamoja na wenza wao.
Wanadhani mwanamke mwenye ulemavu hatakiwi kuwa mama.
“Dhana hii inawafanywa watu wenye ulemavu kuogopa kwenda kupatiwa huduma za uzazi wa mpango katika vituo vya afya,” alisema.
Utafauti huo uliofanywa na Maria Stopes Tanzania katika maeneo ya Korogwe, Manispaa ya Lindi, Mtwara na Rufiji.
MWANAMKE KUJITAMBUA NA SARATANI KWA DAKIKA MOJA

MWANAMKE KUJITAMBUA NA SARATANI KWA DAKIKA MOJA

Wizara ya Afya na Ustawi wa Jamii kwa kushirikiana na Shirika la Afya la PSI Tanzania wamegundua kifaa maalumu cha kugundua maambukizi ya ugonjwa wa saratani ya mlango wa kizazi ikiwa katika hatua ya awali ndani ya dakika moja.
Kutokana na kugundulika kwa kifaa hicho tayari wizara hiyo na PSI wameanza kufanya uchunguzi kwa wanawake wa Mikoa ya Tanga, Singida, Mbeya, Mwanza na Dar es Salaam ili kujaribu kuwaokoa wanawake watakaogundulika kuwa na ugonjwa huo katika hatua ya mapema.
Hayo yalisemwa  jana na Daktari Bingwa wa magonjwa ya wanawake, Dk Mashafi Joseph alipokuwa akizungumzia kufanyika kwa Jukwaa maalumu la kupima afya za wanawake maarufu kama Familia Kitchen Party Gala litakalofanyika katika Ukumbi wa Diamond Jubilee Jumapili.
Dk Mashafi ambaye ni Mshauri wa Masuala ya Afya wa PSI alisema kupatikana kwa kifaa hicho kinachotoa majibu ya maambukizi ya saratani ya mlango wa kizazi katika muda mfupi kiasi hicho ni hatua zinazochukuliwa na serikali na PSI katika kupunguza vifo vya wanawake kutokana na sababu mbalimbali ikiwemo afya ya uzazi.
Kuhusu Familia Kitchen Party Gala, Mratibu wa Jukwaa hilo, Vida Mndolwa kutoka Asasi ya Women in Balance alisema Jumapili ni zamu ya wanawake wa Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam baada ya kufanyika kwa mafanikio makubwa katika mikoa ya Dodoma na Mwanza ambapo zaidi ya wanawake 600 walipima afya zao.
Alisema kupitia jukwaa hilo, wanawake watapata nafasi ya kupewa elimu ya kitaalamu kuhusu uzazi wa mpango, Ukimwi, malaria, ndoa, malezi ya watoto, ujasiriamali na watapata nafasi pia ya kubadilishana mawazo kwa lengo la kupanua saikolojia na ufahamu wao.
Akizungumzia jukwaa hilo, Mratibu wa Mawasiliano wa PSI Kanda ya Mashariki, Mohammed Mziray alisema shirika hilo limekuwa linafanya kazi na wadau wengine ikiwemo Wizara ya Afya na Ustawi wa Jamii katika kuboresha afya za wanawake kwa lengo la kupunguza vifo vya akina mama na watoto.
Alisema kutokana na mkakati huo ndio maana shirika hilo limeamua kushirikiana na Asasi ya Women  in Balance ili kuendesha jukwaa la Familia Kitchen Party Gala ambalo linawawezesha wanawake kutumia mikusanyiko ambayo ilikuwa imezoeleka kwa mafunzo ya ndoa tu, kuwapa pia elimu ya afya ya uzazi, Ukimwi, malaria na ujasiriamali kwa kuwatumia wataalamu mbalimbali.
KESI YA MRAMBA YADODA TENA MAHAKAMANI

KESI YA MRAMBA YADODA TENA MAHAKAMANI

Mawakili  wa upande wa utetezi jana wamekwamisha kuendelea kusikilizwa kwa kesi ya matumizi mabaya ya ofisi na kuisababishia Serikali hasara ya Sh bilioni 11.7 inayomkabili aliyekuwa Waziri wa Fedha, Basil Mramba na wenzake.
Hatua hiyo inatokana na mawakili hao kutofika mahakamani jambo lililosababisha Jaji Sam Rumanyika kuahirisha kesi hiyo hadi Mei 23, mwaka huu itakapotajwa tena.
Juzi kesi hiyo ilitakiwa iendelee lakini iliahirishwa hadi jana kwa kuwa jopo la majaji halikukamilika pia pande zote mbili katika kesi hiyo hawakutimiza amri ya Mahakama iliyowataka kuwasilisha hoja za jinsi ushahidi wa aliyekuwa Kamishna wa Kodi, Felesian Msigala utakavyopokewa mahakamani ili kuunga mkono utetezi wa Mramba.
Mbali na Mramba, washitakiwa wengine wanaokabiliwa na kesi hiyo ni Waziri wa zamani wa Nishati na Madini, Daniel Yona na Katibu Mkuu wa zamani wa Wizara ya Fedha na Uchumi, Gray Mgonja.
Wanadaiwa kuwa kati ya Agosti mwaka 2002 na Juni 14, 2004 jijini Dar es Salaam, wakiwa watumishi wa umma, walitumia vibaya madaraka yao na kuisababishia Serikali hasara ya Sh bilioni 11.7.
Ilidaiwa kuwa walisababisha hasara hiyo baada ya kutoa msamaha wa kodi kinyume cha sheria kwa Kampuni ya M/S Alex Stewart ya nchini Uingereza.
MJUMBE ATAJA MAKABILA YA BARA YALIYOKUTWA ZANZIBAR

MJUMBE ATAJA MAKABILA YA BARA YALIYOKUTWA ZANZIBAR

Wakati hoja za kubatilisha Muungano uliodumu kwa miaka 50 sasa zikizidi kupoteza nguvu, Mjumbe wa Bunge Maalumu la Katiba, Riziki Said Lulida, ameonya Watanzania kuacha kubaguana kwa misingi ya upande wa Muungano kwa kuwa wao ni ndugu wa damu.
Kwa mujibu wa Lulida, asilimia zaidi ya 95 ya Wazanzibari, wanatoka Tanzania Bara na walifika Zanzibar kabla ya Uhuru wa Tanganyika, Mapinduzi ya Zanzibar na Muungano wa mwaka 1964.
Akichangia mjadala wa rasimu ya Katiba kuhusu sura ya kwanza na ya sita juzi, Lulida huku akitoa historia ya asili ya wenyeji wa Zanzibar, alisema hakuna Mzanzibari anayeweza kujitoa kuwa hana asili ya Tanzania Bara na kama yupo, basi huyo ni mlowezi na si Mtanzania wa Zanzibar kwa asili. 
“Huwezi kuikwepesha Zanzibar na historia ya Kilwa, wakati huo Sultani wa Oman mwaka 460 AD na Washirazi walienda Kilwa wakaweka makazi yao Pwani yote, kuanzia Mombasa mpaka Kilwa yote,” alieleza Lulida.
Alisema kati ya Washirazi hao, kulikuwa na ndugu wawili aliowataja kuwa ni Ali bin Hassan na Muhibu bin Hassan, ambao walifanya biashara ya meno ya tembo na dhahabu na baadaye mwaka 1505, aliyekuwa Mfalme wa Kilwa wakati huo aliondolewa na kukimbilia Zanzibar na wafuasi wake.
Lulida alisema wakiwa Zanzibar, walikuta makabila ya kwanza ya eneo hilo ambayo ni pamoja na Wayao, Wamwera, Wamakonde, Wangindo na Wandengereko na hapo biashara ya utumwa kutoka Bara kwenda Zanzibar, ilifanyika huku Zanzibar ikijulikana kama Visiwa vya Wavuvi.
Kwa mujibu wa Lulida, mmoja kati ya ndugu hao wawili,  alikimbilia Pemba ya Msumbiji na mwaka 1513 aliondolewa na kukimbilia Pemba huku vita ya Wareno ikimpeleka mwingine Zanzibar.
Alisema majina yote ya koo zinazopatikana Pemba na Unguja, asili yake ni makabila ya Bara ambapo aliyataja majina  yao na asili yake kwenye mabano kuwa ni pamoja na Usi (Yao), Faki na Makame (Makonde), Mfaranyala na Moyo (Ngoni), Natepe na Nahodha (Ngindo), Shamte na Kaojole (Ndengereko) na Masauni (Matumbi).
Lulida alisema Washirazi na wageni wengine weupe, walizaliana na watu weusi wa eneo hilo na kwamba asili ya Zanzibar ni vizazi vya watu weusi kutoka Bara, hivyo si sawa Mzanzibari mweupe kumuona mwenzake mweusi kuwa si Mzanzibari.
Alisema uwepo wa historia hiyo, unadhihirisha wazi kuwa, Zanzibar imetokana na watu wa Bara kwa asili hivyo kuvunja Muungano au kuuweka hatarini, ni kuhatarisha maisha ya  ndugu wa damu wanaodhihirishwa na historia hiyo.
Wakati Bunge hilo lilipoanza baadhi wa wajumbe wake kutoka kundi walilojiundia la Umoja wa Katiba ya Wananchi (Ukawa), bila kujali undugu huo wa damu wa Muungano, walidai  Hati ya Muungano haipo, na hivyo kukosekana kwake kunabatilisha Muungano huo huku wakiwakashifu waasisi wake, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere na Shekhe Abeid Amaan Karume.
Wajumbe hao, kupitia msemaji wao Tundu Lissu, walidai kuwa waasisi hao waliongoza Tanzania katika Muungano uliodumu kwa miaka hamsini ya uongo na udikteta na kauli zingine za kuwakejeli.
Hoja nyingine walizojenga kutaka kubatilisha Muungano, ni kwamba hakuna Sheria inayoonesha Baraza la Mapinduzi, liliridhia Muungano na hivyo kuna uwezekano Muungano haukuridhiwa Zanzibar, isipokuwa ipo Sheria inayoonesha Bunge la Jamhuri ya Muungano kuridhia kwa upande wa Tanganyika.
Hata hivyo, Serikali iliamua kutoa Hati ya Muungano iliyosainiwa na waasisi hao ambayo iliwaumbua wajumbe wa Ukawa, wakaamua kuja na hoja kwamba huenda imeghushiwa kwa madai watu wengi walitaka kuiona bila mafanikio.
Juzi Mjumbe wa Bunge Maalum la Katiba, Dk Harrison Mwakyembe, alisema mjadala wa uhalali wa Hati ya Muungano kisomi ulifungwa miaka ya 1990.
Akifafanua sababu ya kufunga mjadala huo, Dk Mwakyembe alisema Tume ya Nyalali, ilikaa chini na kuzungumza nawajumbe wawili waliokuwepo katika Baraza la Mapinduzi, Profesa Abrahman Babu na Khamis Ameir, ambao walithibitisha kuwa waliridhia Muungano.
Sababu nyingine ya kufunga mjadala huo kwa mujibu wa Dk Mwakyembe, ni ya kisheria ambayo imeweka wazi kuwa uwepo wa Muungano kwa miaka 50 unaupa uhalali hata bila ya kuwepo kwa Hati ya Muungano.
“Tunashangaa sasa hawa vijana waliozaliwa juzi wametoka wapi,tunapoteza muda kujadili vitu ambavyo havina mantiki tena vilishapitishwa,  sijui hawasomi?” Alihoji Dk Mwakyembe.
Alifafanua kwamba hata kama Baraza la Mapinduzi halikuridhia Muungano huo, uwepo wake kwa karibu miaka 50 sasa, hata Profesa Costa Mahalu na Dk Asha Rose Migiro, ambao  wamezamia katika fani ya sheria, wanajua kisheria kuwa muda huo wa miaka 50 ya Muungano, umeupa uhalali hata kama kusingekuwepo na Hati ya Muungano.
“Hati hizo zimeshakuwa halali, kwanza walikuwa wapi mudawote huo wasidai? Wanakumbuka shuka kumeshakucha?” Alisema Dk Mwakyembe.
MAHAKAMA YAWAACHIA HURU VIGOGO SABA WA SUMA JKT

MAHAKAMA YAWAACHIA HURU VIGOGO SABA WA SUMA JKT

Vigogo saba wa Shirika la Uchumi la Jeshi la Kujenga Taifa (SUMA JKT) waliokuwa wanakabiliwa na kesi ya matumizi mabaya ya madaraka, wameachiwa huru katika Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Kisutu.
Hakimu Mkazi Aloyce Katemana alitoa uamuzi huo jana kwa kuwa Taasisi ya Kuzuia na Kupambana na Rushwa (Takukuru) imeshindwa kuthibitisha mashitaka dhidi ya washitakiwa hao.
Washitakiwa walioachiwa huru ni Mkurugenzi wa Shirika hilo, Kanali Ayoub Mwakang’ata, Luteni Kanali Mkohi Kichogo, Luteni Kanali Paul Mayavi, Meja Peter Lushika, Kanali Felix Samillan, Sajenti John Laizer na Meja Yohana Nyuchi.
Walikuwa wanakabiliwa na mashitaka saba ya kula njama, kutumia vibaya madaraka yao  kwa kutoa uamuzi wa ununuzi wa vifaa chakavu vya ujenzi bila kibali kutoka bodi ya wakurugenzi wa Kampuni ya  TAKOPA  ambao imeundwa kwa ubia wa Suma JKT na kampuni nyingine ya Korea. Pia walidaiwa kuhamisha  fedha kinyume cha sheria.
Akisoma hukumu hiyo, Hakimu Katemana alisema Takukuru wameshindwa kueleza jinsi washitakiwa hao walinufaika  kutokana na kutoa uamuzi huo wa kununua vifaa hivyo chakavu.
Alisema  kwa mujibu wa ushahidi washitakiwa hao walifuata taratibu zote, walikaa kwenye vikao husika na kutekeleza matakwa ya wanahisa ambao ni Suma JKT pamoja na kampuni ya Korea.
Katika mashitaka ya kuhamisha Sh bilioni 3.8 kutoka katika akaunti ya Takopa kwenda Suma JKT, yaliyokuwa yanawakabili Kanali Samillan na Luteni Kanali Kichogo, Hakimu Katemana alisema Takukuru wameshindwa kueleza washitakiwa hao walipata manufaa gani baada ya kuhamisha fedha hizo.
Alisema washitakiwa hao hawakutumia vibaya madaraka yao bali walifuata taratibu kwa sababu walikuwa wanatekeleza majukumu yao kama watia saini wa Takopa na hakuna ushahidi ulioonesha walipata manufaa yoyote kutokana na kitendo hicho.
Aliongeza kuwa ili mtu awe ametumia madaraka vibaya ni lazima afanye jambo kwa lengo la kujipatia faida lakini ushahidi uliotolewa mahakamani hapo haujaonesha kama washitakiwa walinufaika hivyo mahakama inawaona hawana hatia.
Katika kesi hiyo, Takukuru walikuwa na mashahidi 10 pamoja na vielelezo 25, upande wa utetezi walikuwa na mashahidi tisa na vielelezo vitano.
Washitakiwa wakiwa wajumbe wa Bodi ya Tenda ya SUMA JKT, walidaiwa kutumia vibaya madaraka kwa kutoa uamuzi wakidai ulitolewa na TAKOPA kwa ajili ya kununua magari na vifaa chakavu vya ujenzi bila kupata idhini ya kutoka Bodi ya Wakurugenzi wa TAKOPA.
Inadaiwa vifaa hivyo vilinunuliwa kwa ajili ya ujenzi wa barabara ya Msata hadi Bagamoyo, baada ya kampuni ya Takopa ambayo ni ya ubia kati ya Suma JKT inayomiliki hisa 30 na kampuni ya Korea yenye hisa 70, kupata zabuni ya ujenzi huo.

MADABIDA KUSOMEWA MAELEZO YA AWALI MEI 14

MADABIDA KUSOMEWA MAELEZO YA AWALI MEI 14

Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Kisutu imepanga Mei 14 mwaka huu kumsomea maelezo  ya awali, Ofisa Mtendaji Mkuu wa Kiwanda cha Tanzania Pharmaceutical Limited, Ramadhani Madabida na wenzake wanaokabiliwa na mashitaka ya kusambaza dawa bandia za kupunguza makali ya Ukimwi (ARVs).
Hakimu Mkazi Nyigulila Mwaseba alisema hayo jana baada ya kuahirisha kesi hiyo kwa kuwa Wakili wa Serikali Shedrack Kimaro hakuwepo mahakamani.
Mbali na kushitakiwa kwa kusambaza dawa hizo, Madabida ambaye ni Mwenyekiti wa CCM Mkoa wa Dar es Salaam, na wenzake wanadaiwa kusababisha hasara ya Sh milioni 148 baada ya kusambaza dawa hizo kupitia kiwanda chake cha TPL kwa Bohari ya Dawa Tanzania (MSD).
Washitakiwa wengine katika kesi hiyo ya uhujumu uchumi ni wafanyakazi wa kiwanda hicho, Mkurugenzi Uendeshaji Seif Shamte, Meneja Masoko Simon Msoffe na Mhasibu Msaidizi Fatma Shango, pamoja na wafanyakazi wa MSD ambao ni Meneja Udhibiti Ubora Sadick Materu na Ofisa Udhibiti Ubora  Evans Mwemezi.
Inadaiwa Aprili 5, mwaka 2011, Madabida, Shamte, Msoffe na Fatma waliisambazia MSD makopo 12,252 ya dawa bandia za Antiretroviral, ikionesha zimetengenezwa Machi 2011 na mwisho wa matumizi Februari mwaka jana pia walijipatia Sh milioni 148.35 kwa madai ni malipo halali ya dawa hizo.
Materu na Mwemezi wanadaiwa, kati ya Aprili 5 na 13, 2011, Dar es Salaam, wakiwa waajiriwa wa MSD, kwa nia ya kutenda kosa la kusambaza dawa hizo, walishindwa kutumia uwezo wao wote kuzuia kutendeka kwa kosa hilo.
Katika mashitaka mengine, washitakiwa wote wanadaiwa kati ya Aprili 5 na 30, mwaka 2011, kwa nia ovu au sababu za kutotekeleza majukumu yao vizuri, walisababishia MSD hasara ya kiasi hicho cha fedha, kutokana na kuwasambazia dawa bandia.
WAJUMBE UKAWA WAREJEA KIMYAKIMYA BUNGENI KUDAI POSHO ZAO

WAJUMBE UKAWA WAREJEA KIMYAKIMYA BUNGENI KUDAI POSHO ZAO

Utamu wa posho katika Bunge Maalumu la Katiba, umeathiri siasa za baadhi ya wajumbe wa Bunge hilo waliojiundia kundi la Umoja wa Katiba ya Wananchi (Ukawa).
Wajumbe hao waliondoka bungeni kwa mbwembwe wakisusia vikao vya Bunge hilo na kudai hawarudi ng’o, lakini jana baadhi yao walirejea kinyemela bungeni na kwenda moja kwa moja Ofisi ya Katibu wa Bunge Maalumu, kudai posho za vikao ambavyo hawajashiriki.
Mwenyekiti wa Bunge hilo, Samuel Sitta juzi mchana alitangaza bungeni kuwa, amepata taarifa kuwa wajumbe wa Ukawa wamerudi lakini si katika vikao bali wameonekana kwa Mhasibu kuchukua posho.
“Kuhusu hilo la Ukawa kurudi, taarifa zilizonifikia hivi punde zinaeleza kuwa wamerudi, lakini wameenda kwa Mhasibu kuchukua posho,” alisema Sitta na kusababisha wajumbe waliokuwepo ndani ya Bunge hilo kucheka.
Baada ya Sitta kueleza hivyo, alimkaribisha Mjumbe Adam Malima, ambaye pia ni Naibu Waziri wa Fedha, kutoa taarifa kuhusu hatua hiyo ya Ukawa kurudi kuchukua posho.
Malima alisema utaratibu wa fedha zinazolipwa na Serikali ni kwa wajumbe wanaokuja katika kazi za Bunge hilo na kuongeza kuwa, Serikali haipo tayari kuwalipa watu ujira ambao hawajaufanyia kazi.
“Tumezungumza na Katibu wa Bunge na kukubaliana kwamba, wote wasio na mahudhurio malipo yao yasitishwe kwanza, hawawezi kuchukua fedha wakati hawajafanya kazi, hili tunaiachia Kamati ya Uongozi ya Bunge Maalumu,” alisema Malima.
Baada ya Malima kumaliza kutoa taarifa hiyo, Sitta alisisitiza kuwa, wajumbe hao hawawezi kuchukua fedha kwa kugoma kufanya kazi iliyowapeleka Dodoma.
Akizungumza na mwandishi jana, Katibu wa Bunge hilo, Yahaya Khamis Hamad, alikiri kuwa baadhi ya wajumbe wa Ukawa walirudi kuchukua posho lakini hakuwataja majina.
Alisema juzi walitangaza wajumbe wajaze fomu kwa ajili ya malipo yao na inavyoonekana, baadhi ya wajumbe wa Ukawa, kwa kujua wahasibu hawawafahamu vizuri kama wapo bungeni ama ni miongoni mwa walioondoka, walichukua fomu na kujaza kuchukua posho.
“Kabla ya malipo yoyote, utaratibu wetu ni lazima wajumbe wajaze fomu za malipo, jana (juzi) tulitangaza wajumbe wajaze fomu kwa ajili ya malipo, Ukawa nao waliingia na kuna fomu walijaza, nimechukua orodha ya mahudhurio ili kujua waliohudhuria.
“Nimeagiza asubuhi hii fomu zote niletewe, ambaye hakuwa ndani hata kama si Ukawa ataeleza alikuwa wapi, kama hakuwa ndani hatutamlipa mpaka Mwenyekiti (Sitta) aidhinishe kwamba mhusika alikuwa na dharura ya muhimu akiwa Dodoma ndio atalipwa posho ya kujikimu lakini si ya kikao,” alisema Katibu huyo.
Alisema mjumbe yeyote atakayelipwa posho ya kikao ya Sh 70,000 ni aliyehudhuria kikao na kujaza fomu lakini posho ya kujikimu ya Sh 230,000, italipwa kwa mjumbe aliyefika Dodoma kwa ajili ya Bunge hata kama alipata dharura ya kutohudhuria vikao kadhaa.
Kwa mujibu wa Yahaya, posho zinazolipwa ni za kuanzia Aprili 19 mwaka huu hadi Aprili 26 na kwamba za kuanzia Aprili 18 kurudi nyuma, zote zilishalipwa.
Hata hivyo, alifafanua kuwa posho ya kujikimu pamoja na kwamba hulipwa mjumbe akiwasili Dodoma, wapo wajumbe ambao hawajalipwa kutokana na kukosekana ufafanuzi wa dharura zao lakini maelezo ya Sitta ya uthibitisho yakitolewa, watalipwa.
Akizungumzia kuhusu uamuzi wa Kamati ya Uongozi ya Bunge Maalumu  iliyokuwa ikae Alhamisi iliyopita kujadili hatma ya posho za wajumbe wa Ukawa, Yahaya alisema kikao hicho hakikufanyika.
Alifafanua kwamba sababu ya kutofanyika kikao hicho ni kutokuwa na taarifa kamili kwa kuwa Sitta aliomba kwenda Zanzibar, kukutana na baadhi ya viongozi wakiwemo wa Ukawa kutafuta suluhu.
Katibu alisema Kamati ya Uongozi inaweza kukutana muda wowote kuanzia sasa kwa kuwa Sitta amesharejea bungeni.
Sitta alikwenda Zanzibar Jumatatu wiki hii, ambapo   pamoja na kukutana na Makamu wa Kwanza wa Rais wa Serikali ya Mapinduzi ya Zanzibar (SMZ), Seif Sharif Hamad, ambaye pia ni Katibu Mkuu wa Chama cha Wananchi-CUF, pia alikutana na Rais wa SMZ, Dk Ali Mohamed Shein na Rais mstaafu wa Zanzibar, Amani Abeid Karume.
TAKUKURU WAITWA KUCHUNGUZA TANESCO, EWURA, TPDC, MADINI

TAKUKURU WAITWA KUCHUNGUZA TANESCO, EWURA, TPDC, MADINI

Waziri wa Nishati na Madini, Profesa Sospeter Muhongo, ametaka Taasisi ya Kuzuia na Kupambana na Rushwa (Takukuru), kuchunguza wafanyakazi wa wizara hiyo na mashirika yake wanaotuhumiwa kwa rushwa. 
Ametaka Takukuru na vyombo vya dola kwa ujumla, kufanya uchunguzi kwenye Shirika la Umeme Tanzania (Tanesco), Shirika la Maendeleo ya Petroli (TPDC), Mamlaka ya Udhibiti wa Nishati na Maji (Ewura) na Idara ya Madini.
Waziri Muhongo, alitoa agizo hilo kupitia hotuba yake kwa wajumbe wa Baraza la Wafanyakazi wa Wizara hiyo katika mkutano wake wa kwanza wa 2013/2014 wa siku mbili unaofanyika mkoani Morogoro.
Kwa upande wa Idara ya Madini, Waziri alisema anawasiliana kiofisi na Takukuru ili watendaji wake wafike Makao Makuu wa Idara hiyo kuchunguza watendaji na wafanyakazi.
Sababu ya kuanza na Idara hiyo, Profesa Muhongo alisema ni     kutoridhishwa na hatua ya viongozi kushindwa kufuta leseni za  vitalu vya watu waliohodhi miaka mingi bila kuendelezwa kinyume na Sheria ya Madini.
Licha ya kusema sekta ya madini inakabiliwa na matatizo ya ucheleweshaji wa utoaji wa leseni na kushindwa kuwafutia wachimbaji ambao wamepewa vitalu vikubwa vya ardhi, imeonekana vinamilikiwa na wafanyakazi wake na vitatolewa kwa wachimbaji kwa njia ya rushwa.
“Inaonekana kusuasua kwa kushughulikia kutoa leseni kwa wachimbaji wanaohitaji na kuwafutia wale wanaoshindwa kuendeleza vitalu hivyo kunatia shaka, inaonekana vitalu hivyo ni vya baadhi ya wafanyakazi wa sekta ya madini ambao wametumia majina tofauti tofauti kuvimiliki. 
“Kutokana na hali hii kwamba kuna uwezekano vitalu vingi vinashikiliwa na wafanyakazi wa Idara ya Madini, kuanzia  Julai Mosi mwaka huu, Kamishna wa Madini asipovifuta kwa mujibu wa Sheria ya Madini  nitaialika Takukuru waingie ili kufanya uchunguzi na  watakaobainika watachukuliwa hatua za kisheria.
“Tukiangalia tutagundua wafanyakazi wengi wa Idara ya Madini wamejichukulia vitalu vingi vya madini na kuwatafuta watu kwa kuwauzia kwa njia isiyo halali na jambo hili kimaadili na kisheria si sahihi. Takukuru itafanya kazi yake,” alisisitiza.
Aidha alitaka baraza hilo kupunguza mlolongo wa kupatikana kwa leseni za uchimbaji.
“Ni vyema kikao hiki cha Baraza kitoe majawabu kuhusu kuondoa urasimu huu, ili kuwezesha mwombaji apate leseni ndani ya siku mbili kutoka saba ama wiki mbili kutoka mwezi mmoja na kuwezesha wadau na wawekezaji kuvutiwa,” alisema Waziri Muhongo.
Hata hivyo alitaka Idara hiyo iboreshe mfumo mpya utakaoanza kutumiwa kuanzia Julai mosi mwaka huu kwa njia ya mtandao na  kutoa majawabu ya masuala yote muhimu katika utendaji wa sekta hiyo.
Katika hatua nyingine, Waziri huyo alisema, Serikali imepanga kutoa Sh bilioni 2.3 za mikopo kwa wachimbaji wadogo wa madini nchini, lengo likiwa kuwaendeleza ili watoe mchango mkubwa  kwa pato la Taifa na kuziba pengo la wawekezaji wakubwa. Awali, Kamishna wa Madini, Paul Masanja, alisema wameshaanza kufanya uchambuzi wa maombi ya leseni na vitalu visivyoendelezwa kwa lengo la kuchukua hatua zinazostahili.
Alisema hadi Julai Mosi mwaka huu, leseni zisizoendelezwa zitafutwa sambamba na kutumia mfumo wa mtandao kuomba na kutoa leseni.
Kwa mujibu wa Kamishina wa Madini, leseni zilizofutwa ni 184, zilizositishwa ni 80 na 150 zipo katika ufuatiliaji ili zifutwe rasmi.
MAGEREZA WAOMBA NDUGU WA MAHABUSU WALIOFARIKI AJALINI

MAGEREZA WAOMBA NDUGU WA MAHABUSU WALIOFARIKI AJALINI

Miili ya mahabusu wanne waliokufa katika ajali iliyotokea juzi wilayani Mkuranga, mkoani Pwani, inasubiri kutambuliwa na ndugu kwa ajili ya kuendelea na maziko.
Kamishna wa Magereza, John Minja alitoa pole kwa familia za mahabusu  hao wanne pamoja na  askari magereza mmoja waliokufa katika ajali hiyo.
"Natoa pole kwa familia zilizopatwa na msiba huo au kuguswa kwa namna yoyote, hiyo ni mipango ya Mungu hatuwezi kubadilisha na ni ajali ya kawaida kama ajali nyingine, taratibu nyingine zinaendelea kuhakikisha miili yote inatambuliwa na ndugu na kuchukuliwa," alisema Kamishna Minja.
Waliokufa katika ajali hiyo papo hapo ni askari magereza Sajini Peter Mabuma, mahabusu waliokufa ni Juma Mohamed (19), Faraja Msahamu (40), Alex Athumani (23) na Hamis Juma (38).
Mahabusu hao walikuwa wanatoka Mahakama ya Mwanzo Kimanzichana kupelekwa Gereza la Keko, jijini Dar es Salaam.
Kamishna Minja alisema ndugu za mahabusu watachukua miili kwa maziko.
Kamanda wa Polisi wa Mkoa huo, Ulrich Matei, alisema ajali hiyo ilitokea baada ya gari lililokuwa limewabeba mahabusu hao, lenye namba za usajili MT 0038, kuligonga lori lililokuwa limeegesha barabarani na kupinduka. 
Kamanda Matei alilitaja lori hilo lenye namba za usajili T446 CJS lililokuwa limeegeshwa pembezoni mwa barabara katika Kijiji cha Kinene Mwalusembe, wilayani humo.
Gari lililowabeba mahabusu lilikuwa likiendeshwa na Koplo Zawadi Makupa (41) ambaye anashikiliwa na Polisi.
Askari aliyepata majeraha kichwani na kwenye mikono yote miwili, B 2977 koplo Mohamed  hali yake ilikuwa mbaya akahamishiwa Hospitali ya Taifa Muhimbili (MNH). Ilielezwa hali yake siyo nzuri.
CHELSEA SECURE GOALLESS DRAW AT ATLETICO MADRID

CHELSEA SECURE GOALLESS DRAW AT ATLETICO MADRID

By Alex Netherton

The first leg of Atletico Madrid versus Chelsea set up an intriguing decider after a tense 0-0 draw.
In a match of few chances, Chelsea had an unexpected setback when Petr Cech fell awkwardly under the challenge of Raul Garcia. Having dislocated his shoulder, he was substituted for Mark Schwarzer, who impressed throughout. Chelsea will worry that Cech will be out for the weekend’s game against Liverpool, or the second leg.
Frank Lampard’s lunge on Arda Turan saw him booked and suspended for the return game. John Terry was subbed after injuring his foot, in an innocuous clash with Diego Costa. John Obi Mikel and Atletico’s Gabi were also booked, and also suspended. With Eden Hazard also out, Chelsea’s squad is being stretched to its limit.
It was a well earned draw for Chelsea, but the fact remains that they are vulnerable to the away goals rule, having failed to score tonight.


KEY EVENTS
15’ - CECH INJURED. Koke swings in a corner from the right, Cech tips over the bar, and as he does so, Diego Garcia knocks him to the ground. He falls awkwardly, straight onto his elbow, and has to be substituted for Mark Schwarzer.
28’ - RAMIRES MISS! Willian breaks through from his own half, evading one challenge with good footwork and riding his luck with another. He lays the ball off to his right, and Ramires sends a fierce shot well wide of goal.
34’ - DIEGO RIBAS SHOT! Juanfran passes inside for Diego Ribas, who spreads play inside for Suarez. He sends his shot just wide of goal.
59’ - TORRES CHANCE! Fernando Torres does well to use his footwork to get into the box, cuts onto his right, but shoots straight at Courtois.
60’ - RIBAS CHANCE! Chesting the ball down outside the box, he takes one touch to shift the ball inside and sends a shot just wide of goal.
64’ - LAMPARD BOOKED! After a lunge at Arda Turan, Lampard is booked, meaning he will miss the return leg.
75’ - MIKEL AND GABI BOOKED! An undignified heated debate over Lampard’s handball sees both men booked and suspended for the next leg.
76’ - GABI CHANCE! Gabi fires low into the corner of the goal, but Schwarzer gets across swiftly to palm it away.
90+2’ - COSTA CHANCE! Costa has a free header from only a few yards out, but his shot is straight at Schwarzer.

KEY STATS
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 15 clashes with Spanish sides in the Champions League (W6 D10), their last defeat coming against Barcelona at Stamford Bridge in February 2006. Their last five trips to Spain in the competition have all ended in draws.
Chelsea are unbeaten against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League (W1 D2); having met in the 2009/10 Group Stages.
Atletico Madrid have only conceded five goals in 11 Champions League games this season, the best defensive tally in the competition.
Atletico Madrid are the only team unbeaten in the Champions League this season (8 wins, 3 draws).
This is the first Champions League match this season that Atletico have failed to score in.

TALKING POINT
Will Chelsea’s squad survive the next two weeks? Having seen suspensions incurred for Lampard and Mikel, Mohamed Salah and Nemanja Matic cup-tied, and with injuries to Terry, Cech and Hazard, the games against Liverpool and the semi-final second leg will take the team to the full extent of its resilience.

MAN OF THE MATCH
Gary Cahill (Chelsea): It was a disciplined team performance, particularly by the defence, but Cahill was the most impressive. He offered cover for Azpilicueta, and led the line when Terry went off injured, calming a defence suffering two key injuries.

PLAYER RATINGS
Atletico Madrid: Courtois 6, Godín 6, Luís 6, Juanfran 6, Miranda 6, Suárez 6, Koke 6, García 7, Gabi 6, Diego 7, Diego Costa 6. Subs: Arda Turan 6, Villa 6, Sosa 6.
Chelsea: Cech 6, Azpilicueta 7, Cahill 7, Terry 7, Cole 7, David Luiz 6, Mikel 6, Lampard 6, Ramires 7, Torres 6, Willian 6. Subs: Schwarzer 7, Schurrle 6, Ba 6.
10 LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM MAN UTD'S HIRING AND FIRING OF DAVID MOYES

10 LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM MAN UTD'S HIRING AND FIRING OF DAVID MOYES

1) DON'T CHANGE THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN THE ORGANISATION AT THE SAME TIME
Sir Alex Ferguson had been manager of Manchester United for 27 years and David Gill had racked up a decade as chief executive when the duo stepped down last summer. For manager and chief executive at a football club, read chief executive and chairman at a publicly listed company. Allowing both to leave at the same time is dangerous, particularly when their combined leadership has been so successful. Where was the succession planning that didn't let that happen? And what happened to the board's oversight of the career decisions of its two most important executives? How many companies have lost their chairman and chief executive at exactly the same time and replaced both with great success?

2) DON'T LET THE LAST BUSINESS LEADER CHOOSE THE NEXT ONE?
Sir Alex Ferguson imposed what some observers have described as a 'Stalin-like grip' on Manchester United during his 27 years in charge. Very little, it is said, happened without either his direct say-so or tacit approval. But allowing the man who has had a stand named after him and a statue erected at the club's Old Trafford stadium to effectively nominate his replacement as manager brought personal emotion, ego and self-interest into the succession, when it should have been a rational, well thought-out collective board decision. Who on the board would have dared to shoot down the suggestion of the club's most successful manager ever? Ferguson was allowed to become much too important during his reign at the top. How many departing chief executives are allowed to select their successors?

3) GROOM SUCCESSORS FROM WITHIN WHEN YOU HAVE A WINNING TEAM
Ferguson's biggest failing perhaps was not grooming a potential successor. Maybe that's a pitfall of having a domineering, win-at-all-costs personality. But some of the most successful leadership at winning companies has taken more of a team-based approach, generating a cadre of capable lieutenants who have gone on to follow them as well as taking the helm at other companies. Groups including Procter & Gamble Procter & Gamble, Dixons, Asda and the former menswear chain Burtons have served as prodigious academies of management talent. And in British football three of the 19 other managers in the Premier League served as players and/or backroom staff under Ferguson, demonstrating that the talent to groom at hand was indeed available.

4) KEEP THE MOST IMPORTANT SUPPORT STAFF INTACT WHEN THE TOP JOBS CHANGE
David Moyes entered the lions' den when he took the manager's job at Manchester United. The previous manager had won everything there was to win in a glittering career; the top players' medal cabinets were stuffed full too. Having never won a major trophy himself as a manager, he had an instant credibility gap and needed wise heads around him who had the benefit of having been around in the glory years. Instead, he replaced the entire top coaching staff, bringing in the team that had served him at Everton. While this might have been seen as asserting his authority at the time, it left Moyes unsupported within the club and deprived the club of vital experience, know-how and continuity.

5) APPOINT SOMEONE BIG ENOUGH FOR THE JOB
Moyes has never won a major trophy as a football manager and yet he was expected to deliver more or less instantly at a club whose previous manager had won 13 Premier League titles and two European Champions Leagues. As if this was not mission impossible, his body language, demeanour and communications with the media suggested almost from the outset that he did not feel that he was up to the task.

6) GET THE CULTURAL FIT RIGHT
The history of an organisation is an irrevocable part of what it is. It is almost impossible to imagine Apple Apple as a company full of conformists or General Electric General Electric as recklessly-managed. Similarly in football, Manchester United's history and reputation is as a dynamic and romantic team full of derring-do, adventure and attacking style. From the youthful exuberance of the 'Busby Babes' in the 1950s to the swagger and pomp of Best, Charlton and Law in their prime, the club has developed a 'United way'. Ferguson, a self-confessed sporting gambler, stuck to those principles. However, while Moyes spoke about a strong youth policy and the club's fine reputation for attacking football, his actions and strategies did not match his words.

7) MANAGE THE MANAGEMENT'S COMMUNICATION
Moyes had no choice but to take the microphone after every defeat  the broadcasting contracts governing British Premier League football stipulate that the team managers are interviewed after every game. Moyes, following a master media manipulator in Ferguson, could not be expected to have his predecessor's touch in this department. Honest and decent in his public utterances, he nonetheless needed support from his backroom staff and senior players and directors. The club's media team could have taken a much more active role in protecting Moyes, presenting a collective front and showing support to a manager who was always going to have a tricky first year in following a legend.

8) BE DECISIVE. KNOW WHEN IT'S THE RIGHT TIME TO STOP THE ROT
Prior to Moyes's departure, United had a reputation for giving managers time to build teams, in contrast to some of the rapid firings seen at other top teams in the UK and Europe. Yet, it was clear that Moyes had lost the dressing room, while his comments after the team's final performance under his management demonstrated that he didn't have the long-term vision required.

9) DON'T LET THE NEWS LEAK
Once the decision is made, make the announcement. Some of the momentum gained from the decisiveness United's owners showed with their judgment that enough was enough was lost by widespread reports the day before that made Moyes' sacking the worst-kept secret in British football. Nearly all Britain's national newspapers led their sports pages with the news that Moyes was to be sacked, before it had been announced. While United's listing on the New York Stock Exchange governs the timing of price-sensitive news, the leaking of the dismissal led to speculation about compensation, replacements and club strategy, when the focus could have been on a new beginning.

10) HAVE A CREDIBLE NEW PLAN
When an instant fix is neither credible nor desirable, at least have a plan, a process and steady temporary leadership. Appointing Ryan Giggs, United's most decorated player in the club's history, to take charge on a temporary basis, restores some respect to the fallen champions. Giggs is adored by fans, respected by the players and hugely liked by the sports media. With so much of the past leadership having departed, his is an obvious temporary appointment to try to arrest the team's slide and provide some stability. Few companies, however, are likely to have somebody with his attributes waiting ready in the wings.
VAN GAAL EMERGES AS LEADING CANDIDATE FOR MAN UNITED

VAN GAAL EMERGES AS LEADING CANDIDATE FOR MAN UNITED

Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal has become the runaway bookies' favourite to get the Manchester United job.

WHAT HAPPENED

David Moyes was sacked on Tuesday morning after Manchester United's worst season since the Premier League was created. Player-coach Ryan Giggs, 40, was named interim manager but is not expected to be considered for the permanent job at the end of the season.
Before Moyes' sacking, Van Gaal was joint favourite with Borussia Dortmund's Juergen Klopp, who has since ruled himself out of the running. Bayern Munich's Pep Guardiola also refuted claims he would be in line for a shock switch only one season after joining the Bundesliga champions.
As a result, Van Gaal  the former Bayern, Barcelona, Ajax and AZ coach Ð has shot to the top of the bookmakers' lists, with most listing him as evens or odds-on to get the job after his Netherlands contract expires following the World Cup.
Meanwhile, the odds on other candidates are lengthening rapidly  second favourite Klopp is down to 10/1 with some bookies, although Jose Mourinho has shortened from 40/1 to anything as low as 12/1. Unlikely, given United snubbed him first time round.
With United set to pay Moyes around £5m in compensation, Van Gaal's freedom of contract would soften the economic blow of sacking the Scot. The Dutchman is also a renowned disciplinarian, a strong character who takes complete control of the dressing room, sometimes with disastrous consequences. Moyes floundered under pressure, but Van Gaal has been there, won it, and got the t-shirt. Klopp was the fan choice  Guardiola was never a realistic option  but he is devoted to Dortmund and genuinely believes he can turn them into Germany's no.1 team. Had Klopp not rejected the idea out of hand it may be different, but right now Van Gaal  who is openly courting a Premier League job  seems a no-brainer.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

United will begin negotiations with Van Gaal in the coming weeks, with the 62-year-old reportedly putting his feet up in his Portuguese holiday home ahead of the World Cup. Ideally they will have him on board sooner rather than later, as it would allow him to establish a backroom team to set things up for pre-season, not to mention identifying and contacting transfer targets before, during and after the summer showpiece in Brazil. Fans would do well to remember that these things take longer in real life than they do in computer games, with staffing negotiations a contractual minefield.
HOW DIEGO SIMEONE'S TURNED ATLETICO INTO EUROPEAN POWER

HOW DIEGO SIMEONE'S TURNED ATLETICO INTO EUROPEAN POWER

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone won't be going to the cinema this afternoon. His success has seen to that. When Simeone doesn't have a European game he likes to watch a film to disengage, though it's not always so easy.
"The coaching part is beautiful and tough at the same time," he says. "It's difficult to disconnect. I go to the movies on Tuesday  or Thursday if I have a match in Europe - and suddenly the film gets boring and players appear on the screen. I start to think, how can I drop this one, how can I make him improve."
Midfielder Simeone became a cult hero for his performances on the pitch when the rojiblancos last won the league (and the cup) in 1996, bringing 250,000 out onto Madrid's streets to celebrate.
Simeone returned to Atleti as coach in December 2011 when they were 10th in the table, four points above the relegation zone and ejected from the cup by lowly Albacete. They'd just sacked Gregorio Manzano, who'd been there just six months, the 49th managerial change under the current ownership regime.
He's utterly revitalised the club since, with year on year improvements. Tonight, he'll lead Atletico to their first European Cup semi-final since 1974 with the first leg against Chelsea in the Vicente Calderon, the club his side defeated 4-1 in the 2012 European Super Cup.
He'll do so as the man in charge of the Spanish league leaders - an implausible situation at the start of the season when everyone thought that Spain's Primera Liga was a two-horse race. With four games to play, Atletico are four points clear at the top of the table. Atletico are not paupers, but it's a staggering achievement on a wage bill a quarter the size of Madrid and Barcelona.
Simeone has become one of the most highly rated managers in world football, one linked with the vacant Manchester United job following the dismissal of David Moyes. He can't speak English and has only said publicly that he'd like to coach Inter and Lazio, two of his former teams in Italy.
He's renewed his Atleti contract until 2017, but says: "Contracts exist to be broken. I give great value to the trust which Atletico have given me. I have a contract for four years, but I always think they are going to fire me tomorrow, so I only focus on winning on Sunday. I live that way."
He'd also like to coach Argentina, where he won 106 caps, "when I'm 60".
It wasn't easy to leave his family behind in Argentina. When Atletico came looking for him to take over, Simeone phoned his nine year old son Giuliano at the family home in Buenos Aires.
"Dude, I have to tell you that Atletico Madrid called me. They want me as coach."
"Really? You'll get to go against Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo?" replied Giuliano.
"Yes, sure, but I have to move to Spain."
"But we'll be able to see the matches?
A long silence followed. Simeone knew that his family would have to stay in Buenos Aires. It was too risky to keep moving them around the world with different jobs. Besides, all three of his sons are footballers with River Plate: the eldest, Giovanni, 18, is just breaking into the first team, Gianluca is a younger player at River. He knew that nothing would be more painful than losing day-to-day contact with his boys and his ex-wife, a model. Guiliano realised that he wasn't moving to Spain.
"If you win, you'll not come back," he said.
"That killed me," said Simeone, "I didn't know what to say."
Atletico's manager has never stopped winning. His players and fans adore him with a reverence not experienced by other managers.
Simeone's predecessor, Manzano, had lasted six months, but his attempts to rebuild a side after the sales of Sergio Aguero, Diego Forlan and David de Gea in 2011 had faltered, though a bright spot had been the form of ÿ40 million new signing Radamel Falcao.
Asked to compare Manzano with Simeone, the Brazilian Miranda, the defender who scored Saturday's key opening goal in the 72nd minute of a nervy league match against Elche, said: "There's no comparison. It's like I moved to a new team.
"Simeone is a great coach and is always trying to take the best of every player, our side is 70% better now. All we've achieved these last two years, we owe a big part to him."
Despite saying that things "need to be taken slowly", 'El Cholo' - a nickname bestowed by a former youth coach who reckoned he reminded him of former Boca player Carmelo Simeone - quickly began a transformation. Others would call it a revolution.
Simeone said he wanted to 'see an aggressive, strong, combative and determined team'. His impact was immediate, six clean sheets in his first six games. They'd not managed one in the nine games before he took over. He recorded four wins on the bounce. By the end of his first season, they'd won the Europa League again, beating Athletic Bilbao in Bucharest. His side then battered Chelsea 4-1 in that game in Monaco. A historic Copa del Rey win against Real Madrid in the Bernabeu would follow in May 2013, but this season has the potential to be better than all.
And the main reason is the man in who wears the black suit, shirt and shirt: Diego Simeone.

Amesema hayo jana wakati alipozunguza kwenye   uzinduzi wa Ofisi za Mamlaka ya Bandari (TRA) mjini Karatu katika Mkoa wa Arusha, na kuongeza kuwa changamoto za mashine hizo zinajadilika.
"Najua kuna maneno mengi kuhusu suala hili. Kwa hiyo maelekezo yangu ni kwamba kaeni chini, mjadili matatizo yaliyopo na kupata ufumbuzi. Kama ni suala la bei pia linazungumzika lakini tunahitaji mfumo huu wa malipo ya kodi," alisema.
Aliagiza viongozi wa TRA kukaa chini na wadau na watumiaji wa mashine hizo kuzungumza na kutafuta majawabu yanayolalamikiwa na wadau.
Alisema kuacha kutumia mashine hizo ni kurudi nyuma kwa kuwa zimeshaanza kutumia duniani kote na hata nchi jirani baadhi zimeshaanza kutumia na nyingine ziko katika maandalizi ya kutumia.
"Kwenye hili tusirudi nyuma kwa sababu tukifanya hivyo, tutakuwa tunarudi nyuma sana kwa sababu dunia nzima inaelekea huko na hata majirani zetu wote ama wameanzisha mfumo huo ama wanajiandaa kuuanzisha."
"Hatuwezi kurejea kwenye mfumo ule wa kutumia vijirisiti. Mfumo wa sasa unaifanya kazi ya kukusanya kodi kuwa rahisi kwa Serikali yenyewe na kwa walipa kodi. Najua watu hawapendi kulipa kodi lakini hakuna njia ya jinsi ya kuendelea isipokuwa kwa kulipa kodi," alisisitiza Rais Kikwete.
Kwa muda mrefu TRA imekuwa ikisisitiza kuwa  utaratibu wa kutumia Mashine za EFDs ulianzishwa kwa lengo la kumrahisishia mfanyabiashara utunzaji wa kumbukumbu za biashara za kila siku pamoja na kuondoa usumbufu wakati wa ukadiriaji wa kodi.
Mfumo huo wa kutumia mashine za kodi za kielektroniki ulianza kutekelezwa kwa awamu. Awamu ya kwanza ilianza mwaka 2010 kwa wafanyabiashara waliosajiliwa kwenye kodi ya ongezeko la thamani (VAT).
Awamu ya pili ilianza 2013 ikiwahusu wafanyabiashara ambao hawajasajiliwa kwenye VAT ambao mauzo ghafi kwa mwaka ni Sh milioni 14 na zaidi. 
Kwa mujibu wa taarifa za TRA, wafanyabiashara zisizo rasmi zikiwemo za mama lishe na wale wanaotembeza bidhaa barabarani, hawahusiki kwa sababu hawana sehemu maalumu ya kufanyia biashara.
Miongoni mwa wafanyabiashara  wanaotakiwa kutumia mashine hizo ni  wenye maduka ya vipuri, mawakili, maduka ya jumla, wafanyabiashara wakubwa wa mbao, migahawa mikubwa, maduka ya simu na vipuri vyake, baa na vinywaji baridi, studio za picha, biashara za kutoa huduma za chakula, wauzaji wa pikipiki, maduka makubwa ya nguo na biashara zinginezo
Kwa mujibu wa taarifa za TRA, kwa nchi nzima walengwa ni  wafanyabiashara laki mbili tu kwa awamu ya piliÊ kati ya wafanyabiashara zaidi ya milioni moja na nusu ambao wamesajiliwa kulipa kodi.
Rais Kikwete alikuwa katika ziara ya siku moja kukagua shughuli za maendeleo wilayani Karatu katika Mkoa wa Arusha na leo atafanya ziara kama hiyo ya siku moja katika Wilaya ya Mwanga, Mkoa wa Kilimanjaro.

Alisema pamoja na kuchangia mapato ya serikali kwa kiasi kikubwa, utekelezaji wa mradi huu utakuwa chanzo kikubwa sana cha ajira kwa vijana wengi wa kitanzania, hivyo kuweza kuchangia kipato chao kwa ajili ya kuendeleza maisha yao.
Aidha aliipongeza serikali kwa ushirikiano wake wa dhati na wawekezaji hasa katika suala la sera za kodi ambazo zimekuwa zikisaidia sana uendelezaji wa sekta ya nyumba na makazi.

KANISA LA FULL GOSPEL LAKUMBWA NA MAFURIKO

Waumini wa Kanisa la Full Gospel la Mjini Ifakara , wilayani Kilombero, katika Mkoa wa Morogoro,  baadhi yao waliokolewa na boti la Halmashauri ya wilaya hiyo baada ya jengo lao kukumbwa na mafuriko ya maji ya mvua kwenye mkesha wa Pasaka.
Aidha wasafiri wanaotumia barabara ya Ifakara -Mlimba, wanalazimika kutumia  usafiri wa matrekta na magari maalumu yenye uwezo wa kuhimili tope na utelezi baada ya barabara hiyo yenye urefu wa kilometa 150 kuharibiwa na mvua.
Katibu Tawala wa Wilaya ya Kilombero, Yahya Anania , alisema hayo jana kutoka Mjini Ifakara akielezea hali halisi ya mvua za masika zilivyoathiri miundombinu ya barabara na makazi ya wananchi.
"Mvua kubwa zilinyesha usiku wa kuamkia mkesha wa pasaka...nyumba nyingi zilizingirwa na maji likiwemo Kanisa la Kakobe la Mjini hapa ambapo waumini wake walikuwa kanisani," alisema.
"Baada ya kupata taarifa za maji kuzingira Kanisa hilo tulilazimika
kutumia boti ya Halmashauri  ya Wilaya kwenda kuwatoa...baadhi yao walikiubali kupanda ndani ya boti, lakini wengine walikataa ... hapakuwa na madhara" alisema Katibu Tawala wa Wilaya.
OLUOCH AOMBA WANANCHI WAULIZWE KUHUSU MUUNGANO

OLUOCH AOMBA WANANCHI WAULIZWE KUHUSU MUUNGANO

Mjumbe wa Bunge Maalumu la Katiba, Ezekiah Oluoch  amemwomba Rais Jakaya Kikwete kuchukua hatua ya kuwasilisha muswada katika Bunge la Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania kwa hati ya dharura ili kuifanyia marekebisho Sheria ya Marekebisho ya Katiba.
Alisema lengo la kurekebisha sheria hiyo ni ili kumpa mamlaka Rais kuahirisha Bunge Maalum kwa muda wa miezi sita ili kuruhusu kura ya maoni juu ya aina ya muungano wanaotaka wananchi yaani wa serikali mbili au tatu.
Pia alimtaka Rais kufanya marekebisho juu ya Ibara ya 74 ya Katiba ya Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania kwa hati ya dharura ili kuweka Tume huru ya uchaguzi itakayosimamia uchaguzi wa mwaka 2015 na kura ya maoni.
"Ndani ya miezi hiyo sita ikiwa wananchi watachagua serikali mbili tume ya Jaji Warioba italazimika kuitwa tena na kuandaa rasimu ya serikali mbili na endapo wananchi watakubaliana na mapendekezo ya serikali tatu basi wajumbe watarudi kwa ajili ya kujadili yaliyomo kwenye rasimu ya sasa," alisema.
Olouch akizungumza na waandishi wa habari jana mjini Dodoma.
Sambamba na hilo, alisema kitendo cha Wajumbe wa Bunge Maalum la Katiba (UKAWA) kutoka ndani ya Bunge hilo kimeelezwa kuchangiwa na Mwenyekiti wa Bunge hilo Samuel Sitta na Makamu wake Samia Suluhu Hassan kutozingatia kanuni za Bunge hilo.
Oluoch alisema aliwasilisha hoja kwa Mwenyekiti wa Bunge hilo mnamo Februari 3, mwaka huu juu ya mwenendo wa Bunge hilo kutokana na kile alichodai aliziona dalili za kutokea matatizo ikiwemo mipasho pamoja na lugha zisizo za staha kwa baadhi ya wajumbe.
Kwa mujibu wa Oluoch, matatizo hayo yalianza tangu wakiwa wanatengeneza kanuni za Bunge hilo.
"Baada ya kukamilika kwa kanuni za Bunge Maalumu kuna vipengele viwili ambavyo havikutumiwa vizuri na Mwenyekiti wa Bunge hilo, kwanza ni matumizi ya lugha zisizo na staha kwani Mwenyekiti aliruhusu wajumbe kuchangia hoja kwa kupeana mipasho kulingana na aina ya hoja bila kujali hoja iliyoko mezani.
"Kanuni inamzuia mjumbe kuongelea hoja ambayo haikuwa mezani kwa majadiliano, lakini katika Bunge hili wajumbe wanachangia kwa kutoka nje ya hoja ilimradi kuudhi upande mwingine na Mwenyekiti hachukui hatua," alisema.
Oluoch anayewakilisha walimu katika kundi la 201 alisema wajumbe wenye kura turufu kuhusu aina ya muungano ni Wazanzibari kuliko wajumbe wa Tanzania Bara, hali aliyodai inatokana na ukweli kwamba zinahitajika theluthi mbili ya kura kutoka Zanzibar hivyo ni rahisi kuwashawishi wajumbe wa Zanzibar wakiwa ndani ya Bunge kuliko kutaka kuwaunganisha wakiwa nje ya Bunge hilo.

UJENZI WA HOTELI ZAIDI HIFADHI YA NGORONGORO SASA BASI

Rais Jakaya Kikwete amesema Serikali haitaruhusu ujenzi wa hoteli nyingine katika Hifadhi ya Mamlaka ya Ngorongoro, akisisitiza kuwa zile 50 zilizopo sasa zimetosha.
"Kwa wale wawekezaji waliokuwa na ndoto za kujenga hoteli au loji za kitalii katika uwanda wa Ngorongoro hivi sasa wafikirie zaidi kuzijenga katika mji wa Karatu," alisema Rais Kikwete wakati akihutubia maelfu ya wananchi wa Karatu, Ngorongoro na Mto-wa-Mbu waliokusanyika kumsikiliza katika viwanja vya Mazingira Bora, mjini hapa.

Rais Kikwete ambaye alifanya ziara ya siku moja mjini Karatu baada ya mapumziko ya Pasaka katika hifadhi ya Ngorongoro, amebainisha kuwa hivi sasa ni wakati muafaka  wa kuinua mji wa Karatu kuwa eneo maalumu la kupumzikia watalii wakiwa njiani kwenda au kutoka kwenye hifadhi za Ngorongoro, Serengeti na Ziwa Manyara.
"Tunataka wageni watembelee Serengeti na Ngorongoro ili kujionea vivutio mbalimbali, hususani wanyamapori, lakini ni vizuri wawe wanafikia katika hoteli zitakazojengwa katika mji wa Karatu," alisema Rais Kikwete.
Takribani watalii 79,000 hulala katika hoteli zilizomo  ndani ya Hifadhi ya Ngorongoro.
Kiongozi huyo wa nchi pia ameelezea mipango ya serikali yake kupanua uwanja mdogo wa ndege wa Ziwa Manyara, ikiwa ni pamoja na kuboresha miundombinu yake, kuwezesha ndege  zaidi za kitalii kutua wakati wote, katika jitihada za kuinua sekta ya utalii katika ukanda huu wa kaskazini.

 Pinda alitumia fursa hiyo kufikisha salamu za rambirambi kwa wafiwa kutoka kwa Rais Jakaya Kikwete ambaye yuko safarini kikazi.
Katika salamu za Rais Kikwete, alisema kifo cha Chang'a kimepunguza safu ya uongozi na taifa kupoteza mhamasishaji hodari wa maendeleo.

SITTA APONGEZA WAJUMBE KWA KUFIKA BUNGENI KWA WAKATI

Mwenyekiti wa Bunge Maalumu la Katiba, Samuel Sitta amewapongeza wajumbe wa Bunge kwa kufika kwa wakati katika vikao na kusisitiza kuwa kazi walio nayo ya kutunga Katiba si kazi ya mchezo kwani inahitaji busara, uvumilivu na ukomavu mkubwa wa kisiasa.
Sitta amesema anaamini kuwa Mungu anaipenda sana nchi ya Tanzania na kutokana na ukweli huo, Katiba mpya inayolinda maslahi ya Taifa na watu wake, itapatikana.
Aliyasema hayo jana bungeni, mjini hapa mara baada ya kuanza kwa kikao cha Bunge hilo baada ya mapumziko ya sikukuu ya Pasaka yaliyoanza Ijumaa Kuu hadi juzi Jumatatu.
Mwenyekiti huyo alisema, hivi sasa wajumbe wengi wanafika katika vikao kwa wakati na Bunge linaanza kwa muda uliowekwa hivyo hata hatua ya kutunga Katiba, itawezekana na Katiba mpya ya Tanzania, itapatikana.
Nae mjumbe wa Bunge hilo, Hamis Damumbaya alisema kunahitajika maridhiano katika kutunga Katiba.
Alisema ni vyema wanasiasa wakajenga urafiki katika mchakato huo wa uundaji wa katiba kwani ni muhimu kuelewana katika masuala kitaifa.
Damumbaya alisema hakuna sababu ya vyama vya siasa kukimbia kwa wananchi na kuanza kulalamika badala yake wanapaswa kutumia maridhiano kutafuta maridhiano.
"Wajumbe kukimbia Bunge ni jambo la aibu kwa Watanzania, Taifa hili linasifa yake ndani na nje ya nchi hivyo ni muhimu kuilinda," alisema Damumbaya.

KESI YA AKINA MRAMBA KUENDELEA TENA LEO

KESI YA AKINA MRAMBA KUENDELEA TENA LEO

Kesi ya matumizi mabaya ya ofisi na kuisababishia Serikali hasara ya Sh bilioni 11.7 inayomkabili aliyekuwa Waziri wa Fedha, Basil Mramba na wenzake, itaendelea kusikilizwa leo katika Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Kisutu.
Jana kesi hiyo ilitajwa kwa ajili ya kuendelea kusikiliza ushahidi wa Mramba hata hivyo, Jaji Sam Rumanyika aliahirisha hadi leo kwa kuwa jopo la majaji watatu wanaosikiliza kesi hiyo halikukamilika.
Sababu nyingine ya kushindwa kuendelea kwa kesi hiyo jana ni kutokana na pande zote mbili katika kesi hiyo kutotimiza matakwa ya amri ya mahakama hiyo iliyotolewa Novemba 20,  mwaka jana.
Amri hiyo iliwataka kuwasilisha hoja za majumuisho ya jinsi ushahidi wa aliyekuwa Kamishna wa Kodi, Felesian Msigala utakavyopokewa mahakamani  ili kuunga mkono utetezi wa Mramba.
Hata hivyo Wakili wa Mramba, Hubert Nyange alidai kuwa aliwasilisha majumuisho hayo ingawa ilikuwa nje ya muda uliotolewa na Mahakama na alifanya hivyo ili kuokoa muda kwa kuwa aliona angesubiri mpaka kesi itajwe kisha aombe kuwasilisha hoja hizo nje ya muda angechelewa.
Jaji Rumanjika aliahirisha kesi hiyo hadi leo itakapotajwa na kuangalia ni jinsi gani amri hiyo itaweza kutekelezwa.
Majaji wengine wanaosikiliza kesi hiyo ni Jaji John Utamwa na Saul Kinemela. Mbali na Mramba, washitakiwa wengine wanaokabiliwa na kesi hiyo ni Waziri wa zamani wa Nishati na Madini, Daniel Yona na Katibu Mkuu wa zamani wa Wizara ya Mipango na Uchumi, Gray Mgonja.
Wanadaiwa kuwa kati ya Agosti mwaka 2002 na Juni 14, 2004 jijini Dar es Salaam, wakiwa watumishi wa umma, walitumia vibaya madaraka yao na kuisababishia Serikali hasara ya Sh bilioni 11.7.
Ilidaiwa kuwa walisababisha hasara hiyo baada ya kutoa msamaha wa kodi kinyume cha sheria kwa Kampuni ya M/S Alex Stewart ya nchini Uingereza.
Mkuu wa Idara ya Udhibiti na Tahadhari wa Bank Of Africa (BOA) Tanzania, Mwanahiba Mzee akimpatia chakula, Nelson Mwijage kwa ajili ya mgonjwa wake Gilbert Mutalemwa (aliyelala) katika Hospitali ya ya CCBRT, mjini Dar es Salaam wiki hii.

KLOPP RULES HIMSEFL OUT OF THE RUNNING FOR MAN UNITED JOB

KLOPP RULES HIMSEFL OUT OF THE RUNNING FOR MAN UNITED JOB

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled himself out of the running to become the next Manchester United boss.
Klopp is currently the second favourite for the job with the bookmakers but insists he has no interest in the position after signing a new contract with Dortmund last year that keeps him with the Bundesliga giants until 2018.
"Manchester United is a great club and I feel very familiar with their wonderful fans. But my commitment to Borussia Dortmund and the people is not breakable," he told the Guardian.
The Guardian's German football correspondent Raphael Honigstein adds in his report: "Contrary to the perception in England, neither Dortmund nor their coach believe that the team have hit their glass ceiling after losing two key players, Mario Götze and Robert Lewandowski, to the league winners Bayern Munich.
"The club have only begun to establish themselves as the German league's second force after nearly going out of business in 2005. Strong financial growth over the course of the last three years has seen their turnover rise to £256m in 2012-13, a figure that puts them ahead of Premier League teams like Liverpool £240m and Tottenham Hotspur £172m."
Klopp has also been talked about as a potential contender for the Barcelona position if, as expected, Tata Martino is replaced in the summer.
The Manchester United job has become available after David Moyes was dismissed after a disastrous 10-mouth spell in charge.
Ryan Giggs is expected to be confirmed as interim manager until the summer.
The bookmakers have made Dutch coach Louis van Gaal the favourite to take the job on a permanent basis. He has already confirmed he will be leaving his position with the Netherlands after the World Cup.
