Sasa kuna sinema ambayo inaanza kutengenezwa mwezi ujao, inaitwa Shelter. Stelingi wake ni Julianne Moore. Sasa katika kutafuta extras, mtu aliyekabidhiwa hiyo kazi alitangaza casting call ya ajabu.
Haya hiyo siyo mbaya, lakini aliharibu aliposema anatafuta watu ambao wanafanana na 'inbred' yaani waliozaliana wenyewe kwa wenyewe. Tena waliongeza watu wanafanana na 'holler people' ni kabila fulani ya ya wazungu wanaokaa kwenye milima ya West Virginia.

Aisei, kumbe watu wanausudu fesheni zetu za Bongo! Mtindo wa kutundika kitambaa begani umefika mpaka Liberia! Cheki gauni ya Rais wa Liberia Mama Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.
TAMWA waliwahi kufanya mashindano ya National Dress ya Tanzania, miaka ya 80. Mtindo uliyoshinda ni huo wa kitambaa begani. Nadhani walisema ni fesheni ya tangu enzi za Tanganyika.
Sasa nikichambua vazi la Mama Johnson-Sirleaf, zaidi naona Kilemba chake kinaelekea kwenye asili ya mababu zao yaani watumwa waliotoka Marekani. Nimeweka picha ya Mammy hapo kuonyesha watumwa walivyokuwa wanafunga kitambaa kichwani. Mnaonaje?
Kwa habari zaidi za kuanzishwa taifa la Liberia someni:

President Bush dons foreign attire
This is what Hillary's campaign is using for fear mongering. They claim that Obama really is a Muslim in hiding! By the way, Obama is not a Somali! That is Somali attire he is dressed in!
Woops! Hillary and her daughter Chelsea wear Muslim headscarves!
Hillary dons a Head Scarf!
Now we know that Hillary must be affiliated with terrorists!
Leo nimesikitika sana, tena mno, kusikia baadhi ya wazungu wakisema kuwa kumbe ni kweli Obama ni mwislamu. Oh kumbe yuko Al-Qaeda! Oh, kumbe kaelekea zaidi kwenye Uislamu. Kwenye WCVB TV Channel 5 hapa Boston, mtangazaji alisema kuwa kwenye hiyo picha Obama kavaa nguo za Middle East!
Kisa, kampeni ya Hillary wanazungusha picha kwenye neti ya Obama akiwa amevaa nguo za wazee wa kiSomali. Picha ilipigwa alipotembea huko Kenya mwaka 2006. Hivi Obama si MJaLuo?
Nimebandika picha za waheshimwa wakiwemo Hillary wakiwa wamevaa hijab na nguo zinge zi kiutamduni.
Kwa waongea kimombo:
Hey you ignoramuses out there, Mr. Obama's father is from the Luo tribe ofKenya! He is not a Somali. He was just visiting a group of people who live in Kenya and they showed him their respect!
Plus it is a sign of disrespect no to don the attire of the people you are visiting in some foreign lands. Take a look at the photos above!

Jioni ya leo (February 20, 2008) kwenye kipindi cha BBC mara baada ya Mwanakijiji kuhojiwa, alifuatia Msemaji wa Jeshi la Polisi ambaye alijaribu kuelezea ni kwa nini vijana wawili wanashikiliwa na Polisi kwa sababu ya kuhusika na mtandao wa Jambo Forums. Katika madai ya jeshi hilo ni kuwa mtandao huo siyo tu ni wa uchochezi bali pia unamawazo ya kigaidi au uvunjaji mwingine wa sheria.
Tafadhali ingia kwenye "Pics and Docs" kwenye "Press Releases" na kujisomea tamko hilo pamoja na makala iliyowatambulisha watu wengi kwenye Jambo Forums iliyotolewa karibu mwaka mmoja uliopita na kuwekwa hapa bila ya kufanyiwa uhariri wowote au mabadiliko.
Wakati huo huo tunaitisha michango ya wana JF katika kuwasaidia ndugu zetu. Wengine tumetoa muda wetu, watu wawili tu wamechangia fedha kidogo na wengine wanaendelea kutoa michango ya "maneno ya kizalendo" na mshikamano.
Mwisho tunaomba kuwahakikishia kuwa Jambo Forums iko salama kabisa na kila kitu kilichokuwapo bado kipo na muda si mrefu itarudi hewani.
Sasa jamani, hiyo khanga ilivyokunjwa. Picha ya Bush imefichwa lakini maneno WE CHERISH DEMOCRACY ni prominent. Hivi aliamua kuikunja hivyo kusudi picha ya Bushi isionenekane? Hapa Marekani watu walikuwa wanacheka kweli hizo khanga wanasema picha ya Bush iko kwenye butts (matako) na bosoms (vifua) vya wanawake wa kiafrika. Hawaelewi utamduni wetu wa khanga.

Here comes another safety alert for everybody.
I think the message is clear and what me and you are supposed to do is
to share to as many people as possible.
* Take the reg. number once you board a taxi,
* Inform your colleague/relative of the taxi particulars and the route,
* Let the driver understand that you have informed somebody else about
A close friend of mine has told me of what happened to his wife on
Tuesday 12th February 2008!
She drew from Bank House ATM Tshs. 300,000/= and she was heading to
Regency Hospital. She went for a taxi at Old Post Office, during the
course of bargaining for price with the first Taxi driver, another Taxi
pulled around and the driver asked where this woman was heading to. He
was told and agreed to take her after dropping the other passenger as
they were heading the same route.
She was surprised when she saw the taxi going along Ally Hassan Mwinyi
road even After they passed Salender Bridge, on asking she was told that
they were going to drop the other passenger at Oyster bay and thus they
took Kenyatta Drive. As the drive way was clear this taxi was traveling
at a reasonably high speed when they asked her for the Phones and the
money she withdrew from the ATM of which she gave them.
When they were approaching Masaki the Taxi slowed down due to the number
of vehicle in the drive way. She took this chance to scream for help;
the guys were not amused, they opened the car and pushed her out and
The good Samaritans and the onlookers went for the rescue; she was safe
then and they told her she was luck to be dropped un hurt as the average
number of such victims, most of them injured is about 10 to 12 per day;
all of them claiming to have hired taxis from Posta or city centre.
"Please let it be known to others and be careful with Taxis in town! Let
you friends know, let members know so are your neighbors"
Hii picha nilipiaga mwezi wa saba mwaka jana Bongo. Tulikuwa Magomeni, Dar es Salaam kwenye shoot ya filamu Bongoland II siku ya kwanza. Bongo Superstars Steven Kanumba na Emmanuel Myamba walikuja kututembelea kwenye seti. Sikujua kuwa huyo Emmanuel naye ni actor alielekea mpole kweli.
Nimebahatika kuona sinema ya Fake Pastors. Mle Emmanuel anaigiza kama Evangelist wa kanisa. Kwa kweli ana kipaji cha kuigiza yaani kama kuna tuzo ya Best Supporting Actor Bongo, anastahili yeye. Anaigiza vizuri mno mpaka wewe mtazamaji unasema unataka kumwona zaidi na zaidi. Unaamini kabisa kuwa huyo ni Evangelist anayependa kanisa lake, dini yake na waumini wake. Haonekani kama anaigiza hata kidogo. Natabiri ataenda mbali sana katika fani ya uigizaji na si Bongo tu hata nje ya nchi. Sinema ya Fake Pastors ina kasoro zake lakini huyo jamaa ni nyota!
Welcome to Bawstin (Boston )
For those of you who have never been to "Bawstin", this is a good guideline. I hope you will consider coming to "Beantown" in the near future. For those who call New England home, this is just plain great!
Information on Boston and the surrounding area:

Back Bay streets are in alphabetical "oddah": Arlington , Berkeley ,Clarendon, Dartmouth , etc. So are South Boston streets: A, B, C, D, etc. If the streets are named after trees (e.g. Walnut, Chestnut, Cedar), you're on Beacon Hill . If they're named after poets, you're in Wellesley .
Massachusetts Avenue is Mass Ave ; Commonwealth Avenue is Comm Ave ;
South Boston is Southie. The South End is the South End.
East Boston is Eastie. The North End is east of the former West End . The West End and Scollay Square are no more; a guy named Rappaport got rid of them one night. Roxbury is The Burry, Jamaica Plain is J.P.
Frappes have ice cream, milkshakes don't.
If it is fizzy and flavored, it's tonic.
Soda is CLUB SODA.

The colored lights on top the old Hancock tell the weatha':
"Solid blue, clear view...."
"Flashing blue, clouds due...."
"Solid red, rain ahead...."
"Flashing red, snow instead...." - except in summer;
flashing red means the Red Sox game was rained out!
Most people live here all their life and still don't know what the hell is going on with this one.
Route 128 is I-95 south. It's also I-93 north.
The underground train is not a subway. It's the "T", and it doesn't run all night (this ain't Noo Yawk).
Order the "cold tea" in China Town after 2:00 am you'll get a kettle full of beer.
Bostonians... think that it's their God-given right to cut off someone in traffic.
Bostonians...think that there are only 25 letters in the alphabet (no R's) except in "idea".
Bostonians...think that three straight days of 90+ temperatures is a heat wave.
Bostonians...refer to six inches of snow as a "dusting."
Bostonians...always "bang a left" as soon as the light turns green, and oncoming traffic always expects it.
Bostonians...believe that using your turn signal is a sign of weakness.

Jeshi la Polisi Mkoani Dar-es-Salaam limewaachilia vijana Mike Mushi na Mac DeMello ambao ilikuwa inawashikilia kwa zaidi ya masaa 24 yaliyopita. Vijana hao walikuwa wanashikiliwa kwa madai ambayo hadi hivi sasa hayajaeleweka lakini inadaiwa kuhusiana na mtandao maarufu wa Jambo Forums. Muda mfupi uliopita email kutoka kwa mtu anayejiita Melo imetuma ujumbe kwa klhnews ikisema kuwa
Bora kuendeleza mijadala mingine kuliko hivi, kaka balaa kwangu!"
Alikuwa adui mkubwa wa Marekani shauri ya siasa zake za Communism. Mdogo wake, Raoul Castro atakuwa rais sasa.
Nakumbuka mwaka 1978, nilimwona laivu. Alikuja Dar es Salaam kumsalimia Mwalimu Nyerere. Wakati huo nasoma Zanaki secondary Form II. Tuliambiwa tukajipange pale Ikulu kumpokea. Alikuwa bado fiti wakati huo. Sasa ni mzee kabisa. Nakumbuka watu walisema eti, Castro alijialika kutembea Tanzania. Sijui walikuwa na maana gani. Tulitolewa haraka darasani na kuambiwa tuwahi Ikulu.

Patient- You've taken me from the ground and put me in a bed! What is the meaning of these niceties? Or am I about to die?!
Nurse- How are you feeling this morning?
Nurse - Would you like your eggs made into an omlette or spanish style?
Doctor - How do you feel?
Kipanya (rat character) - No you are not dying! President Bush is coming!
Amana Hospital is known for poor treatment of patients and poor conditions overall. When President Bush visited suddenly the place was cleaned up, the staff were doing their jobs and the patients got good food to eat! Can the President visit all of the public hospitals Please!!!!
Kwa kweli Kipanya kajitahidi sana leo!
President Bush is leaving a lasting impression on multitudes of Tanzanians. He has not put on airs and has even evaded his security to meet, shake hands and hug common people! It sounds like he is enjoying his trip to Tanzania immensely!
Rais Bush apagawisha
Na Mwandishi Wetu, Jijini
Licha ya kutoka katika taifa lenye nguvu kubwa zaidi za kiuchumi duniani, Rais George W. Bush wa Marekani ameweza kujichanganya na Wabongo Jijini na kuwapagawisha maelfu ya waliofika kumpokea.
Bush, aliyewasili Jijini tangia Jumamosi jioni kwa ajili ya ziara ya kitaifa ya siku nne nchini, amefanya jambo hilo lisilokuwa la kawaida kwa marais wa taifa hilo walio madarakani na kuwashangaza hata maafisa wake wa Kikosi cha FBI.
Kwa ujumla, mambo yenyewe aliyoyafanya Rais Bush mara tu baada ya kutua kwenye Uwanja wa Ndege wa Kimataifa wa Julius Nyerere na kuwapagawisha watu ni kama haya:
Awali ya yote, alipotua pale kwenye `terminal one`, Bush alitoa mpya wakati alipositisha ghafla zoezi lake la kupungia mkono watu waliokuja kumpokea na kisha kujichanganya nao kwa muda.
Ilianza kama masihara vile, Bush alichomoka ghafla toka kwenye kapeti kali jekundu alilokuwa akipitishwa na mwenyeji wake, Rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania Bw. Jakaya Kikwete.
Kisha kwa mastaajabu ya wengi, akamuendea mama mmoja aliyekuwa miongoni mwa watu tele waliokuwa wakimpungia na kukumbatiana naye. Jambo hilo liliamsha hisia kali za furaha na nderemo.
Jana, Bush akaendelea kujichanganya `uswazi`, kunako mitaa ya Buguruni na Ilala ambako, ingawa alikuwa akilindwa vikali, aliweza kutimiza ratiba yake ya kuzindua majengo mapya katika Hospitali ya Amana, yaliyofadhiliwa na Serikali yake.
Wakati alipopewa fursa ya kuzungumza pale katika viwanja vya Ikulu, ambako yeye na mwenyeji wake walikutana na waandishi wa vyombo mbalimbali vya habari, Rais Bush alibonga Kiswahili kwa namna isiyotarajiwa.
Alikamata mic, kisha akasalimia kwa kusema `Mambo viipiii!``
``Alinishangaza. Kamwe sikujua kama Rais Bush anaweza kutusalimia kwa Kiswahili,`` amesema Bw. John Jacob, mkazi wa Manzese Jijini.
Pamoja na kuwapagawisha Wabongo kwa staili ya ujio wake na mivifaa ya kisasa ya kumlinda ikiwa ni pamoja na midege na migari myeusi ya bei mbaya, Rais Bush amewaletea neema Wabongo.
Yeye na mwenyeji wake, Rais Kikwete, wamesaini mkataba utakaoiwezesha Tanzania kupata msaada wa dola za Kimarekani Milioni 698 sawa na pesa za Kitanzania bilioni 800. Haijapata kutokea!
Pesa hizo zitatumika kwa ajili ya miradi mbalimbali ya maendeleo, ikiwa ni pamoja na kujengea miundombinu ya barabara.
Aidha, mke wa Rais Bush, Bi. Laura Bush, amemwaga msaada wa dola za Kimarekani Milioni 43 kwa mradi unaokwenda kwa jina la `Pamoja Inawezekana`, ulio chini ya Mama Salma Kikwete, kwa ajili ya kuwasaidia watoto yatima nchini.

Kuna Slideshow Bofya Hapa:
We Tanzanians can be proud that our country is trustworthy when it comes to donated dollars. President Bush praised Tanzania for putting the money donated to battle AIDS to work in the country and save lives.
It's the largest deal under a Bush program that offers economic aid to countries that treat their people fairly, rule justly and root out corruption.
"I'll just put it bluntly, America doesn't want to spend money on people who steal the money from the people," Bush said. "We like dealing with honest people, and compassionate people. We want our money to go to help human condition and to lift human lives as well as fighting corruption in marketplace economies."
President Bush admires the warm welcome he received the Tanzania. His host is Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete.
President Bush and his wife Laura greet Tanzanian officials. Behind President Bush if Tanzanian first Lady, Salma Kikwete.
