Mrs Marym Birgoren sukru.


I am writing this mail to you with tears and sorrow from my heart. With due respect trust and humanity, I appeal to you to exercise a little patience and read through my letter, I wish to contact you personally for a long term business relationship and investment assistance in your Country so I feel quite safe dealing with you in this important business having gone through your remarkable profile, honestly I am writing this email to you with pains, tears and sorrow from my heart, I will really like to have a good relationship with you and I have a special reason why I decided to contact you, I decided to contact you due to the urgency of my situation, My name is Miss Wendy Kipkalya Kones, 23yrs old female and I held from Kenya in East Africa. My father was the former Kenyan road Minister. He and Assistant Minister of Home Affairs Lorna Laboso had been on board the Cessna 210, which was headed to Kericho and crashed in a remote area called Kajong,
in western Kenya. The plane crashed on the Tuesday 10th, June, 2008.
You can read more about the crash through the below site:
After the burial of my father, my stepmother and uncle conspired and sold my father's property to an Italian Expert rate which the shared the money among themselves and live nothing for me. I am constrained to contact you because of the abuse I am receiving from my wicked stepmother and uncle. They planned to take away all my late father's treasury and properties from me since the unexpected death of my beloved Father. Meanwhile I wanted to escape to the USA but they hide away my international passport and other valuable traveling documents. Luckily they did not discover where I kept my fathers File which contains important documents. So I decided to run to the refugee camp where I am presently seeking asylum under the United Nations High Commission for the Refugee here in Ouagadougou, Republic of Burkina Faso.
One faithful morning, I opened my father's briefcase and found out the documents which he has deposited huge amount of money in one bank in Burkina Faso with my name as the next of kin. I traveled to Burkina Faso to withdraw the money for a better life so that I can take care of myself and start a new life, on my arrival, the Bank Director whom I met in person told me that my father's instruction/will to the bank is that the money would only be release to me when I am married or present a trustee who will help me and invest the money overseas. I am in search of an honest and reliable person who will help me and stand as my trustee so that I will present him to the Bank for transfer of the money to his bank account overseas. I have chosen to contact you after my prayers and I believe that you will not betray my trust. But rather take me as your own sister or daughther.
Although, you may wonder why I am so soon revealing myself to you without knowing you, well I will say that my mind convinced me that you may be the true person to help me. More so, my father of blessed memory deposited the sum of (US$11.500, 000) Dollars in Bank with my name as the next of kin. However, I shall forward you with the necessary documents on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer and statement of the fund in your country. As you will help me in an investment, and I will like to complete my studies, as I was in my 1year in the university when my beloved father died. It is my intention to compensate you with 30% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my capital in your establishment. As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above. I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to
handle this transaction sincerely.
AWAITING YOUR URGENT AND POSITIVE RESPONSE, Please do keep this only to your self for now un till the bank will transfer the fund. I plead to you not to disclose it till I come over because I am afraid of my wicked stepmother who has threatened to kill me and have the money alone, I thank God Today that am out from my country (KENYA) but now In (Burkina Faso) where my father deposited these money with my name as the next of Kin. I have the documents for the claims.
Yours Sincerely
Miss Wendy Kipkalya Kones

Tukumbuke Askari Wetu Waliopigana kwa Niaba ya Mkoloni

Askari Monument in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
 Leo nimekumbuka ule wimbo tuliokuwa tunaimba jeshini, JKT, inaenda hivi..... Askari Eh, Vitani yee mama......   

Wadau, mnajua ile sanamu pale City Center Dar. Inaitwa Askari Monument.  Ni kumbukumbu ya Askari waafrika waliopigana katika Vita Kuu ya Kwanza ya Dunia.  Waafrika walichukuliwa na Mkoloni kuwa Askari katika Majeshi yao, Walifanya kazi ngumu ya kupigana huko wazungu walikaa kwenye viti vyao wanapunga hewa!  Kwa maana hiyo Akari wa nchi fulani, walikuwa wanaua Askari wa nchi nyingine, Kama mchezo vile!  (Gameborad) Askari wengine walipelekwa Ulaya na hawakurudi kwa familia zao, wala familia zao hawajui waliishia wapi!

Nimekusanya picha ya Askari waliopigana katika Vita Kuu ya Kwanza ya Dunia, wakati huo Tanzania, inaiitwa Deustche Oost Afrika (German East Africa).

Na Mjerumani alikuwa ni msehenzi mkatiki kwa Waafrika..  Waafrika huko vijijini waliuawa wengi sana na Mjerumani eti wazaa au wagonjwa.

Ni Ngoma ya Kabila Gani Hii?

Wasdau, hebu nisaidie kujua hii ni ngoma ya kabila gani? Picha imepigwa mwaka 1907 miaka mia moja iliyopita. Ilipigwa enzi za Mjerumani wakati Tanzania ni German East Africa.

Watoto waliozaliwa na Maanbukizi ya VVU (HIV) Wataka Jamii Kuwakumbuka!

Imeelezwa ili kuwawezesha watoto yatima ambao walizaliwa wakiwa na Virusi vya UKIMWI ambao wanapatikana katika Kituo cha Matumaini kilichopo Manispaa ya Dodoma, Watanzania wametakiwa kuungana kwa pamoja na kuwasaidia watoto hao ambao wanaishi katika kituo hicho ili kuwawezesha kuishi mazingira bora pamoja na kupata huduma za bora za afya.

Hayo yalisemwa na Msimamizi wa Kituo cha Matumaini, Sister Maria Rosaria Gargiulo, alisema kituo hicho chenye watoto 151 wakati kimeanzishwa kilikuwa kikipokea msaada kutoka Wizara ya Afya, Ustawi wa Jamii, Jinsia, Wazee na Watoto na TACAIDS lakini kwa sasa msaada umesimama na hivyo kuwafanya kwa sasa kuishi katika mazingira magumu.

Sister Maria alisema kuwa hali ya maisha kwa watoto hao ni ngumu na hivyo kuwataka Watanzania kuwakumbuka watoto hao ambao walizaliwa wakiwa na maambukizi ya Virusi vya UKIMWI ili waweze kupata huduma bora ambazo zitawawezesha kuishi katika mazingira bora, kupata elimu na kupata dawa ambazo zitaimarisha afya zao.

“Hapa wanakuja tu watu wa hapa Dodoma mara nyingi siku za Jumamosi na Jumapili ila tofauti na hivyo hatuna msaada mwingine, watoto hawa wanahitaji faraja kutoka kwa watu wengine inapendeza kuona watu wanakuja kuwaona na kuwasaidia nao wanafurahi,

“Ukiangalia hali ya kimaisha inazidi kupanda tunafanya jitihada kujisimamia sisi wenyewe lakini tunashindwa bado tunahitaji msaada sisi tumejitoa kuwasaidia hawa watoto hata hatulipwi lakini tunahitaji sana msaada wa Watanzania,” alisema Sister Maria.

Nae Mlimbwende wa Taji la Miss Tanzania 1999 na Mtalaam wa Mawasiliano wa Shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa (UN), Hoyce Temu ambaye alifika kituoni hapo kwa ajili ya kutoa msaada ambapo alituma ujumbe kwa Watanzania wengine ambao wamekuwa hawana utaratibu wa kutoa misaada kwa wahitaji na kuwataka kubadilika.

Bi. Temu alisema kuwa mazingira ambayo wanaishi watoto hao ni magumu na hawana wazazi kutokana na wazazi wao kuwa wamefariki hivyo kuwataka Watanzania kujitoa kwa pamoja na kuwasaidia watoto hao kwa chochote ambacho kinaweza kuwasaidia kuimarisha maisha yao ili waishi mazingira bora.

“Jamani kama watu wanasema tunapoishi kuna shida basi hakuna, shida zipo huku, ukiangalia kuna watoto wengine wana wiki moja na hawana wazazi wametupwa wanahitaji kupata misaada ya Watanzania,

Mlimbwende wa Taji la Miss Tanzania 1999, Hoyce Temu akimsikiliza kwa makini mmoja wa watoto wanaoishi kituoni hapo aliyewahi kumuona mara ya kwanza alipofika kituoni hapo.

“Nitoe rai kwa Watanzania wenzangu kama una pesa au nguo au chochote ambacho kinaweza kuwasaidia tutoe kwa watoto hawa mazingira yao ni magumu sana, hawana makosa hawa hata mbele za Mungu naomba tuwasaidie,” alisema Bi. Temu.

Owners of Home Health Care Agency Sentenced to Prison For Taking Part in $80 Million Medicaid Fraud

Defendants Used Money to Finance a Lavish Lifestyle

            WASHINGTON –Florence Bikundi and her husband, Michael D. Bikundi, Sr., the owners of Global Healthcare, Inc., a home care agency, were sentenced today to prison terms for health care fraud, money laundering, and other charges stemming from a scheme in which they and others defrauded the District of Columbia Medicaid program of over $80 million.
            The sentences were announced by Channing D. Phillips, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia; Paul M. Abbate, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office; Nicholas DiGiulio, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG), for the region that includes Washington, D.C.; Brian J. Ebert, Special Agent in Charge, Washington Field Office, U.S. Secret Service, and Daniel W. Lucas, Inspector General for the District of Columbia (D.C. OIG).
            The two defendants, of Mitchellville, Md., were found guilty on Nov. 12, 2015 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The Honorable Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell sentenced Florence Bikundi to 10 years in prison. She sentenced Michael D. Bikundi, Sr. to seven years in prison. Following their prison terms, the Bikundis will be placed on three years of supervised release. Judge Howell earlier ordered them to forfeit over $11 million seized from 76 bank accounts; their residence, worth approximately $1 million; $73,000 in cash seized from their residence, and five luxury vehicles with a total purchase price of more than $400,000.  She also imposed a forfeiture money judgment of $39,989,956 on both defendants. Finally, Judge Howell ordered the defendants to pay $80,620,929 in restitution to D.C. Medicaid.
            “The investigation of this case exposed a massive health care fraud that cheated the District of Columbia Medicaid program of more than $80 million that could have been spent on people who needed services,” said U.S. Attorney Phillips. “Florence and Michael Bikundi enriched themselves for years by operating a rogue home care agency. Hopefully the sentences today will serve as a deterrent to other unscrupulous health care providers who aim to steal the taxpayers’ money.”
            “The Bikundis funded their lavish lifestyle by defrauding the District of Columbia’s Medicaid program designed to provide for those in need,” said Assistant Director in Charge Abbate of the FBI’s Washington Field Office.  “The FBI will continue to pursue criminals who target our health care system in order to protect its integrity and to prevent fraud. I commend the dedicated agents, analysts, and prosecutors who worked to bring this case to justice.”
            “It’s outrageous that fraudster couple Florence and Michael Bikundi stole millions of Medicaid funds meant to provide home health services to vulnerable patients just to fuel their own lavish lifestyle,” said Special Agent in Charge DiGiulio of the HHS Office of Inspector General. “But today’s prison sentences show the results of our continued work with other law enforcement agencies to crack down on greedy individuals who rip off government health care programs.”
            “Health care fraud and other similar elaborate fraudulent schemes are not victimless crimes,” said Special Agent in Charge Ebert of the U.S. Secret Service’s Washington Field Office.  “This type of fraud can have a significant detrimental effect on our nation’s financial infrastructure and our local community’s economy. The Secret Service will continue to tirelessly pursue justice by investigating and dismantling these types of fraudulent schemes.”
            “I hope this sentence sends a clear message that we will continue to investigate and propose prosecution for anyone who engages in corruption or fraudulent activities against the District government,” said Inspector General Lucas. “I applaud the hard work of my D.C.  OIG Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU) staff for bringing this case to its rightful close.”
            Florence Bikundi, 53, also known as Florence Ngwe and Florence Igwacho, has been in custody since her arrest in February 2014. She was found guilty by the jury of 12 charges: one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud; one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, two counts of health care fraud; one count of Medicaid fraud; and seven counts of money laundering. Michael D. Bikundi, Sr., 63, was found guilty of 10 charges: one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud; one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, one count of health care fraud; and seven counts of money laundering.
            According to evidence presented at trial, Florence Bikundi, a former nurse, and her husband owned Global Healthcare, Inc. According to the government’s evidence, Florence Bikundi was not entitled to take part in the Medicaid program and fraudulently got approval as a provider. Then, the government’s evidence showed, she and her husband led a scheme to bill Medicaid for services that were not fully provided – recruiting others, including family members, into the scam, and creating fraudulent paperwork to hide the illegal activity.
            The D.C. Medicaid program is funded jointly by District of Columbia tax dollars and federal tax dollars. Medicaid provides for home care services to be performed by personal care aides, working for eligible home care agencies. Doctors or advanced practice registered nurses must examine beneficiaries and authorize them to receive these services. The aides are to follow a plan of care and assist Medicaid beneficiaries in performing activities of daily living, such as getting in and out of bed, bathing, dressing, keeping track of medication, and so forth.
            In 1999, Florence Bikundi went by her maiden name of Florence Igwacho.  In August 1999, the Virginia Board of Nursing revoked the nursing license of Florence Igwacho.  In March 2000, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General notified Florence Igwacho in writing that she was excluded from participation in Medicare, Medicaid, and all federal health care programs due to the revocation.
            Florence Bikundi subsequently concealed her past – namely, the Medicaid exclusion and the revocation of her nursing license - when she applied for a Medicaid provider number for Global Healthcare in June 2009 using the name of Florence Bikundi.  She also used three forged signatures on her Medicaid provider application.  Florence Bikundi married Michael Bikundi in September 2009.
            From August 2009 through February 2014, Florence and Michael Bikundi used Global HealthCare to carry out a massive fraud, the government’s evidence showed. Year after year, the D.C. Medicaid program was billed for personal home health aide services that were not fully provided to Medicaid beneficiaries. Phony time sheets, patient files and employment files were created. Global Healthcare generated increasing amounts of payments as the years continued, going from roughly $1.35 million in 2009 to $14.27 million in 2011 to $27.16 million in 2013.
            According to the government’s evidence, the Bikundis used the proceeds to finance a lavish lifestyle. In just over three years, they spent $1.3 million to purchase and renovate a newly built home. They also used the proceeds for a $140,000 Land Rover, a $120,000 Porsche, a $75,000 Mercedes Benz, a $70,000 Cadillac and a $36,000 BMW.
            Seven others earlier pled guilty to charges in the investigation. They include Florence Bikundi’s son, Carlson M. Igwacho, 35, of Bowie, Md.; Florence Bikundi’s two sisters, Irene M. Igwacho, 50, of Bowie, Md., and Berenice W. Igwacho, 31, of Bowie, Md.; James Mbide, 55, of Laurel, Md; Nicola C. White, 34, of Laurel, Md.; Elvis N. Atabe, 57, of Adelphia Md., and Melissa A. Williams, 33, of Silver Spring, Md.
            Two others were indicted on charges in the investigation but remain fugitives: Christian S. Asongcha, 39, formerly of Lanham, Md., and Atawan Mundu John, 39, formerly of Washington, DC.
            In announcing the sentence, U.S. Attorney Phillips, Assistant Director in Charge Abbate, Special Agent in Charge DiGiulio, Special Agent in Charge Ebert, and Inspector General Lucas commended the work of those who investigated the case from the FBI’s Washington Field Office, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General, and the U.S. Secret Service, as well as a team from the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit of the District of Columbia’s Office of the Inspector General that included Director Brent Wolfingbarger; Special Agents Mike Kellam, Sandra Adams, Victor Richardson, and Senior Auditor LaShawn Brooks. They also expressed appreciation for the assistance of the District of Columbia’s Department of Health Care Finance and other agencies.
            They commended the work of those who prosecuted the case, including Assistant U.S. Attorneys Lionel A. AndrĂ©, Anthony Saler, and Michelle Bradford, of the Office’s Fraud and Public Corruption Section. They acknowledged the efforts of Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher B. Brown, of the Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section, who assisted during the forfeiture proceedings, and Criminal Investigator Nicole Hinson, also of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, who was the prosecution’s law enforcement representative during the trial.
            Finally, they expressed appreciation for the assistance in this case and related investigations that was provided by Arvind K. Lal, Chief of the Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section; Assistant U.S. Attorneys Zia Faruqui, Ted Radway, Michael Friedman, Chrisellen Kolb, and Michelle Zamarin; Financial Analyst Bryan J. Snitselaar; Deputy U.S. Marshal Wayne Rollock of the U.S. Marshals Service; Paralegal Specialists Toni Donato, Donna Galindo, Krishawn Graham, Tasha Harris,  Corinne Kleinman, and Kristy Penny; Legal Assistants Angela Lawrence, Jessica McCormick, and Christopher Samson; Litigation Support Specialist Ron Royal, and former Forensic Accountant Maria Boodo

Muhammad Ali Alipotembelea Tanzania 1980

Wadau, Nina kumbuka vizuri marehemu Bondia Muhammad Ali, alipokuja Tanzania kutembea mwaka 1980. Watu walikuwa na  kiwewe kumwona shujaa wao Vijana walivamia fensi na  kukimbiza ndege yake pale airport  Dar!   Watu walisema bora Ali angemtwanga Mzee Nchimbi (picha ya pili).
