Acheni Mchezo wa TIGO, Watu Wanajamba Ovyo Siku Hizi!



Wadau, juzi nilikuwa naongea na MBongo. Alikuwa analalamika kuhusu jinsi watu wanavyoshindwa kujikaza siku hizi na kuachia pumzi (kujamba)!

Nayoona ni hivi, Bongo mchezo wa TIGO ( Kufira/ Sodomy) umezidi!   Na nimekuwa nikisema siku nyingi mtaona athari za huo mchezo kuongezeka!

Kwanza, kwa vile ile sphincter ya mkundu/anus imelegea, mtu anashindwa kuzuia pumzi kutoka. Pia maji maji yanatoka, na inabidi avae nepi/pedi.  Halahala huyo akae kwenye kiti/cochi. Unashangaa kwa nini nzi wanaenda pale alipokaa huyo mtu!  Mnaona biashara ya nepi za wakubwa invyoshamiri huko Bongo?

Pili, Ugonjwa wa UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) kwa wanawake na wanaume umeongezeka Bongo kwa vile, mchezo wa TIGO unasababisha uchafu kuingia kwenye ume na uke. Fikiria, dume anaingiza ume wake kwenye mkundu, lazima anapatwa na chembe chembe za mavi!  Na uchafu lazima unateremka kwenye uke wa mwanamke!

Nilishasema na ninawakumbusha, mungu aliumba mkundu/anus kwa ajili ya kunya. Yaani kutoa uchafu mwilini. Haikuumbwa kwa ajili ya kuingiza kitu! Ndo maana inalegea mchezo ukizidi.

Acehni mchezo huo chafu!Tumieni kondomu kwa usalama wenu!

·        Uchangiaji huu ni ishara ya shukurani kwa wakaazi hao kwa kuzima moto katika kituo cha data cha Tigo.

Tarehe 27 Julai 2017 – Tigo Tanzania imechangia kisima chenye thamani ya TZS milioni 17 kwa hosipitali ya Mji Mpya na maeneo yanayoizunguka katika mkoa wa Morogoro kama mkono wa shukurani kwa wakaazi kwa kuhatarisha maisha yao wakati wakipambana na moto ambao ulilipuka katika kituo cha data cha kampuni katika eneo hilo.
Kwa mujibu wa Tigo, uchimbaji wa kisima hicho pia ulikuwa sambamba na nia ya kampuni hiyo kusaidia ustawi wa jamii ambako Tigo inaendesha  shughuli zake.
Akizungumza katika sherehe za makabidhiano zilizofanyika katika hospitali ya mji mpya katika manispaa ya mji wa Morogoro Afisa Ufundi na Taarifa wa Tigo (CTIO) Jerome Albou alielezea matarajio yake kwamba kisima hicho kitawafikisha mbali sana katika kuondoa suala la upungufu wa maji katika hospitali na pia kutoa maji safi na salama ya uhakika kwa jamii inayokizunguka.
“Tunawashukuru sana watu wa Mji Mpya kwa kuonesha kujali na kujitoa wakati wa kupambana na moto ambao karibu uteketeze kabisa kituo cha Data mapema mwaka huu. Kweli Tigo ina deni kwa wanajamii, serikali ya mtaa na viongozi wa ulinzi na usalama wa manispaa kwa kuitika  kwa wakati kuhakikisha kuwa hakuna uharibifu mkubwa unasababishwa wakati wa moto,” alisema Albou.   
“Kwa hiyo msaada huu, unakuja kutimiza ahadi walioiweka Tigo kwa wakazi wa Mji mwema wa kuwapatia maji safi na salama kama namna ya kutambua juhudi zao katika kulinda mali za kituo hicho cha data.”
Albou alibainisha kwamba uchangiaji huo unakamilisha idadi ya vijiji 20 ambavyo vimenufaika kutokana na jitihada za Tigo za kutoa maji safi na salama nchi nzima, ikiwa inawasaidia zaidi ya watu 187,000.
Mwaka huu, Tigo ina mpango wa kuchimba visima zaidi katika maeneo yanayohitaji ambayo zaidi ya watu 350,000 wanatarajiwa kunufaika katika jitihada zetu za kusaidia juhudi za serikali za kuondoa upungufu wa maji safi na salama nchini.
Makabidhiano yalishuhudiwa na Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Morogoro Dr Kebwe Stephen Kebwa ambaye aliishukuru Tigo kwa kufikiria kutoa msaada huo. Alisema kwamba kisima hicho kitasaidia utoaji wa huduma bora za kiafya katika hospitali ya Mji Mwema na kusaidia katika maendeleo ya kiuchumi na kijamii. Aliwaomba wasamaria wema wengine kujitokeza na kuunga mkono juhudi za kuondoa upungufu wa maji katika mkoa huo.
Tunapenda kuishukuru Tigo kwa kutusaidia katika juhudi zetu za kutoa huduma za kiafya za uhakika katika eneo hili kwa kutatua tatizo lililokuwepo la upungufu wa maji. Tunaamini kwamba upatikanaji wa maji safi na salama karibu na wakaazi pia itaongeza uzalishaji wa kiuchumi hasa kwa wasichana na wanawake ambao hawatakuwa wanapoteza muda mwingi wa kutafuta maji safi na salama sehemu zingine. Hii itawapatia wasichana fursa ya kuhudhuria masomo kwa uhuru na kuipa jamii fursa ya kuhudhuria kwa ufanisi katika shughuli zao za maendeleo ya Taifa,  Alisema Dr Kebwe.

Vyuo na Vyuo Vikuu- UVCCM Wamkingia Kifua Raid Dkt. Magufuli

Kaimu Katibu Mkuu wa Idara ya Vyuo na Vyuo
Vikuu-UVCCM Daniel Zenda akizungumza wakati
 wa kikao cha kazi na viongozi
wa Vyuo na Vyuo Vikuu mkoa wa
Dar es Salaam, leo
Na Nassir Bakari
Umoja wa Vijana wa CCM (UVCCM), kupitia Idara yake ya Vyuo na Vyuo vya Elimu ya Juu, umemkingia kifua Mwenyekiti wa CCM Rais Dk. John Magufuli ukisema kwamba hafanyi uteuzi kwa njia za kibaguzi bali anafanya hivyo kwa kuzingatia weledi na uwezo wa anayemteua.

UVCCM imesema, hayo leo jijini Dar es Salaam, na kupinga vikali kauli iliyotolewa hivi karibuni na Mbunge wa Singida Mashariki Tundu Lissu, kwamba Rais Dk. Magufuli amekuwa akifanya uteuzi kwa kuzingatia ubaguzi wa ukanda, ukabila, dini na jinisa.

Akifungua Kikao cha kazi cha Viongozi wa Vyuo na Vyuo vikuu mkoa wa Dar es Salaam, Kaimu Katibu Mkuu Idara ya Vyuo na Vyuo Vikuu- UVCCM, Daniel Zenda alisema, UVCCM kupitia Idaya yake, inapinga na kulaani vikali kauli hizo za Tundu Lissu kwa sababu ni kauli za hatarai kwa kuwa zina lengo la uchochezi, kudhalilisha na kugawa Wananchi kwa misingi ya kibaguzi.

"Ndugu Watanzania kauli hii ya Tundu Lissu ni yenye lengo la kuchonganisha, kudhalilisha na kuwagawa wananchi, Sisi Vjana wa Vyuo na vyuo Vikuu, tunalaani kwa nguvu zetu zetu kauli hii. Kwa mfano ukitazama uteuzi wa Mkuu wa Majeshi nchini anatoka Bara, lakini hupo chini ya Waziri wa Ulinzi Dk. HusseinMwinyi ambaye anatoka Zanzibar", sasa hapo ubaguzi unakujaje",  alisema na kuhoji.

Alisema, kimsingi katika kufanya uteuzi, Rais anazingatia haki yake ya kikatiba ambayo inampa mamlaka ya kuteua na kutengua kwa kadri anavyoona inafaa. "ibara ya 36 kifungu cha pili ambayo kinasema Rais atakuwa na madaraka ya kuteua watu wa kushika nafasi za madaraka ya viongozi wanaowajibika kuweka sera za idara za taasisi za Serikali na watendaji wakuu wanaowajibika kusimamia utekelezaji wa sera za idara hizo", alifafanua.

"Mnajua siasa ni kama dawa, dawa huwa inaisha muda wake, sasa huyu Tundu Lissu naye amekwisha muda wake kisiasa, ndiyo maana inafika wakati anazungumza maneno ya kipuuzi katika jamii, nawaomba ndugu Watanzania wenzangu tuyapuuze maneno yake, hayana maana, Ndugu Wananchi wa Singida Mashariki tunawaomba 2020 msifanye makosa tena tuleteeni anayefaa kuliko huyu Tundu Lissu", alisema Zenda.

Alisema, kuisha kisiasa kwa Tundu Lisu na upinzani kwa jumla, kunatokana na uchapakazi ulioonyeshwa na uongozi wa awamu ya tano, chini ya Rais Dk. Magufuli. " Hawa kina Tundu Lisu kwa sasa hawana hoja, ndiyo maana sasa wanatapatapa kujaribu kutafuta pa kushika.

"Sisi kama vijana wasomi tunaiunga mkono Serikali ya awamu ya tano inayoongozwa na Rais Dk.  Magufuli kwa mambo yote inayoyafanya, Watanzania wenyewe tumekuwa ni mashahidi wazuri wa hayo mambo, tunaomba Mungu ampe afya njema ili aendelee kututumikia Watanzania" alisema Zenda.

Ijue Piano na Manufaa Yake!



IJUE PIANO – NA MANUFAA YAKE
Na Freddy Macha


KWA SIMU TOKA LONDON-  Mitaani na muziki wa Kizungu

Piano (au kinanda)  ni chombo mahsusi cha  Wazungu. 
Kitaaluma muziki maana yake ni vitu vitatu : melodi (unayoisikia bila hata kujua maneno na kuipigia uluzi), ridhimu (mapigo), na mpangilio wa sauti (“harmony”). Kipengele cha tatu ndiyo kigumu zaidi....
Kati ya vyombo muhimu  vya kitengo cha utunzi na upangaji (“harmony”) wa muziki ni Piano na Gitaa.
Ila Piano inaongoza Uzunguni.
 Ndiyo maana kila utakapokwenda,  makanisani, mabaa, mashuleni, majumbani na hata vituo vya usafiri hukosi Piano. Kihistoria, watunzi mashuhuri wa muziki ulimwenguni wametumia Piano kupanga vibao vyao vilivyofahamika na kupendwa miaka mingi  zaidi.
 Mifano michache  ni George Gershwin (“Summertime”- 1934),  Stevie Wonder (“Superstition”, 1973 ), Billy Joel  (“I love You Just the Way You are”- 1977) , Herbie Hancock (“Watermelon Man”, 1962), Paul McCartney ( “Nyimbo za Beatles,  “Let it Be”, “Long Winding Road”, “Yesterday”, nk), Prince (”When Doves Cry”, 1984), Gill Scott Heron (Mtunzi mashuhuri wa Mashairi aliyefariki 2011),  na  Alicia Keys , binti , kijana anayewika sasa.
Hata wanamuziki waimbaji walipiga piano, ingawa si sana hadharani. Prince, Michael Jackson, James Brown, nk.
Afrika yetu tunao marehem Fela Kuti na Abdullah Ibrahim (Afrika Kusini) anayeheshimika kama mmoja wa wapiga piano wakubwa duniani wa Jazz. Watanzania marehemu Patrick Balisidja  na Kassim Magati (Sunburst) vile vile. Miaka yake ya mwisho marehem Balisidja alipiga Piano akiwa na King Kiki.
 Kimuziki Piano ni kama kamusi. Ni muhimu kuijua kuelewa nini kinatendeka katika moyo, ngozi na mifupa  ya muziki.
Kiafya upigaji Piano huoanisha pande mbili za Ubongo na kuzuia kuchakaa kwake.  Hivyo kwa Wazee na watu wa makamo ni kinga maradhi ya kusinyaa na kulemaa Ubongo mathalan “Dementia” na “Alzheimer”...
Hii ni sababu mkono  mmoja hufanya tendo tofauti na mwingine, unapotwanga Piano.
Kufuatana na maelezo ya mwanasayansi wa Kimarekani,  Roger Sperry (aliyeshinda tuzo la Nobel 1981) upande wa  kushoto wa Ubongo hufikiri,  na kulia  mambo ya hisia na utunzi. Bw Sperry alifikia ugunduzi huo akifanya utafiti wa kiini cha Kifafa.
 Ni vizuri pia kwa watoto wadogo na huwasaidia kufanya vyema katika masomo yote. Ndiyo maana muziki na Sanaa (kijumla) huzingatiwa sana mashuleni Uzunguni. 
Mwafrika jifunze Piano hata kama unaanza kuzeeka, itakufaa.  Na wasisitize wanao kufanya muziki na sanaa, utawajenga kiakili katika hesabu na sayansi pia.

TRA Waifungia RFA Kwa Kudaiwa Kodi ya Sh. Bilioni 4.5

Mamlaka ya mapato Tanzania inadaiwa kuifungia Radio Free Africa ya Mwanza inayomilikiwa na Antony Dialo kutokana na kudaiwa kodi kubwa.

TRA wamewaondoa studio wafanyakazi wote na kuifunga radio hiyo. Kwa sasa ukiwasha radio utasikia matangazo ya kiingereza ya BBC.

Diallo ni mwenyekiti wa CCM Mwanza na anadaiwa mamilioni ya kodi na TRA miaka mingi.

Star TV pia imekumbwa na sekeseke hilo. Ikumbukwe hii ndio TV pekee binafsi iliyokuwa ikipingana na MOAT na TEF katika sakata la RC Paul Makonda na walirusha kipindi maalum cha Makonda huku Jumuiya ya Wanahabari wakitangaza rasmi kujitenga na maswahibu yoyote yatakayokuja kuikuta RFA na Star TV.

Angola Expels Congolese

   JOHANNESBURG (AP) - Angola has expelled more than 8,000 Congolese who entered the southern African country while fleeing deadly violence at home, the United Nations says in a new report.

   The humanitarian report says more than 30,000 Congolese have fled to Angola during months of violence in Congo's central Kasai regions that began in August.

   Catholic officials in Congo have estimated that more than 3,300 people have been killed in the unrest. On Friday, the U.N. Human Rights Council voted to send experts to the region to investigate alleged abuses that include beheadings.

   More than one million Congolese have been displaced inside the country by the fighting blamed on militias and government forces, the U.N. says.

   The report says militias have used an estimated 500 girls and boys as fighters or "human shields."

   Aid access to the region has been limited by the violence, the U.N. said.

   On Saturday, Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano said Italy is contributing 300,000 euros ($335,000) for U.N. refugee agency efforts to `'respond to the dramatic humanitarian emergency" in the Kasai regions to help Congolese refugees in Angola, the foreign ministry said in a statement.

   Alfano said the aid will go toward health care, food security, education and `'promoting the reliance of the vulnerable refugee populations." He said the aid aims to `'ease the burden that weighs on the Angolan government in assuring assistance and protection to the refugee population."

   The U.N. says the overall emergency aid appeal of $64 million for the Kasai crisis "remains poorly funded." The U.N. refugee agency has requested $6 million to help the Congolese in Angola.
