Ogopa Magari enye Madirisha Tinted!

Nimepata kwa email, lakini hii kali!  Mambo ya ushirikina yataisha lini!!!!


*************************************************************

Dear Friends:

Leo nimeona ni vyema nika-share nanyi kisa hiki cha kutekwa mfanyakazi mwenzetu ambaye ni cashier siku ya jumatano jioni wiki iliyopita. Ni kama movie lakini ni ukweli, cashier wetu aliomba ruhusa siku hiyo ya tukio aende kwenye mkutano wa wasabato uliokuwa uliendelea viwanja vya biafra.

Yeye pia ni msabato aliyeishika dini ya Sabato haswa, kwa hiyo aliondoka saa kumi kamili badala ya saa kumi na moja. Baada ya dakika 40 tulianza kupokea sms zinazosema mwenye namba xxx amepata ajali na kufa papo hapo na kwa taarifa zaidi twende muhimbili hospital. Baada ya kutazama hiyo namba xxx ilikuwa ni ya cashier wetu. Tulijaribu kuipiga iliita tu bila kupokelewa, na pia tulipiga namba iliyotutumia sms iliita bila majibu. Ilipofika saa kumi na moja tuliamua kuelekea muhimbili, ma baada ya kufika pale emergence tukaambiwa tuelekee chumba cha kuhifadhia maiti. Tulioneshwa mwili wa mtu aliyepata ajali lakini haukuwa wa cashier wetu, tukawatuma wenzetu waende hospitali zote lakini hapakuwa na taarifa zake.

Baada ya kuzunguka bila mafanikio tulitoa taarifa makao makuu ya usalama barabarani na baada ya dk kumi wakatwambia kuwa hakuna taarifa za ajali mbaya iliyotokea jioni hiyo. Hatua iliyofuata ilikuwa ni kutoa taarifa polisi juu ya tulio hilo na ndipo waliposema kwa kuwa ni mtu mzima tusubiri hadi siku inayofuata.

Wakati huo huo ndugu zake pamoja na wafanyakazi wenzetu walikuwa pamoja wakiendelea na jitihada za kumtafuta hadi saa sita usiku.

Kilichokuwa kinatia wasiwasi zaidi ile namba iliendelea kutumia sms namba takribani zote zilizokuwa kwenye phonebook yake na ndugu zake hawakuwahi kuona ndugu yao akichelewa kiasi hicho.

Ilipotimu mida kama ya saa sita na nusu walisikia mtu akigonga mlango, alikuwa kaumizwa na amejaa matope, hakuwa na uwezo wa kuzungumza sana, ilibidi wampeleke kituo cha polisi na baada ya muda hospitali ya mwananyamala. Alipopata nguvu alianza kuwasimulia nduguze kilichotokea. Alipotoka ofisini alikwenda moja kwa moja kwenye kituo cha daladala cha karakana, pale kituoni walikuwa abiria wawili
yaani yeye na mama mmoja. Baada ya dk chache ilikuja coaster iliyoandikwa mbele Kawe na ilikuwa na tinted nyeusi, yule mama hakupanda sababu alikuwa anaelekea posta ila yeye alipanda. Ndani ya gari kulikuwa na watu watatu pamoja na dereva, wawili wakiwa wamekaa nyuma na mmoja akiwa amekaa karibu na driver. Gari hiyo hiyo ilikuwa ni mpya, mmoja wa abiria alimumba simu cashier apige simu
moja kwa jamaa yake maana alidai kuwa simu yake illiishiwa charge na walikuwa wametoka mtwara kupeleka maiti, alimuuliza cashier umri wake na kama ameoa na anafanya kazi wapi, cashier akamjibu hajaoa na hana kazi pia ana miaka 32.

Walipofika Tazara hawakutaka kupakia abiria yoyote na walikuwa wote wamevaa miwani myeusi, na ndipo akaanza kuingiwa na mashaka akaomba ashuke, wao wakamwambia watapita biafra na hawana mpango wa kusanya kwa kuwa hata yeye walimpa lifti tu.

Gari ilipokaribia taa za buguruni akainuka ili ashuke, jamaa wale wa nyuma wakamkalisha chini kwa nguvu, na sio kwenye viti yaani chini kabisa. Mmoja wao akafunga kitambaa cheusi kwenye macho na mikono ikafungwa kwa nyuma na mipira, baada ya muda akasikia kama wamempulizia perfume. Akihisi fahamu kumtoka polepole na neno lamwisho analokumbuka alisikia kuwa waelekee misitu ya Kibaha wakamalize kazi. Kilichomwamsha ni kofi zito alilopigwa na kusukumwa hadi nje ya gari. Alianza kulia na kuwasihi wasimdhuru, wakaanza kumrusha kichurachura huku wakimkanyaga.

Walikuwa wameshamfungua kitambaa machoni na waliacha gari umbali kama wa dk kumi na lilikuwa ni pori zito na giza, wao walivaa vitu usoni na walikuwa wamevaa gloves.

Wakamwekea simu yake mfukoni wakiwa wametoa simcard, walichomwambia wanachohitaji ni sehemu zake za siri na sio kitu kingine. Mmoja wao akaambiwa alete kisu kikali wanachokitumia, na walipompigia boss wao akawasisitiza nyeti zinazotakiwa lazma ziwe za mtu wa miaka 40 na kuendelea.

Mwenzao mmoja akasema cashier alisema alikuwa na miaka 32, baada ya kumkagua wakakuta card yake inaonyesha kazaliwa mwaka 1979. Kulingana na yeye asemavyo ndicho kilichomwokoa ila waliendelea kumkung'uta kwa hasira. Wakamrudisha kwenye gari na baada ya mwendo wakampakia kwenye gari nyingine ndogo iliyokuwa na watu wawili ambao walimchukua na kumtelekeza maeneo ya sayansi.

Hawakuchukua kitu hata kimoja wala kumwambia lolote, siku iliyofuata alipelekwa agakhan kwa uchunguzi zaidi na kwa sasa anaendelea vizurr. Kwa ufupi ni hayo, ukweli mwenyezi Mungu atulinde na tumwombe pia
abadilishe mioyo ya watu ambayo imekuwa migumu mno kwa ajili ya kupata vyeo na utajiri wa haraka.

Asante Rais Obama! Republicans Mlie tu!

The Supreme Court backs all parts of President Obama’s signature health care law, including the individual mandate that requires all to have health insurance.


OBAMACARE OYEEEEEEEEE!

Tajiri Mitt Romney asiyejali maskini na Republicans wenzake walie tu! Hii ni pigo kubwa sana kwao! Hata kama mtu hana hela ni binadamu! walisema Romney akishinda uchaguzi Obamacare ingefutwa mara moja.  Asante Rais Obama, umeokoa maisha ya wengi! Lakini jamani, mbona Uncle Tom Justice Clarence Thomas kaipinga?

Supreme Court Upholds Entire Health Care Law


Editor's note: We're live blogging from the Supreme Court today as the nation waits to see how the justices will rule on the health care law. You can follow along below as CNN Supreme Court Producer Bill Mears and Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin get the latest details live from the court as well as analysis when the opinion is delivered. Watch live coverage and analysis on CNN TV, CNN’s mobile apps and http://cnn.com/live.

[Updated at 10:54 a.m. ET] House Speaker John Boehner renewed calls to reverse the Obama administration's signature health care overhaul after Thursday's Supreme Court decision upholding the act, saying the decision "underscores the urgency of repealing this harmful law in its entirety."

[Updated at 10:52 a.m. ET] House minority leader Nancy Pelosi declared the court's ruling a "victory for the American people."

"With this ruling, Americans will benefit from critical patient protections, lower costs for the middle class, more coverage for families, and greater accountability for the insurance industry," she said.

Pelosi further said that the Affordable Healthcare Act will prevent children from being denied coverage for pre-existing conditions, lower drug costs for seniors and allow students and young adults to stay on their parents’ plan.

“In passing health reform, we made history for our nation and progress for the American people," Pelosi said. "We completed the unfinished business of our society and strengthened the character of our country. We ensured health care would be a right for all, not a privilege for the few."

Kusitishwa Mgomo wa Madaktari na Mahakama

TAARIFA KUTOKA IKULU
***********************
Mahakama Kuu ya Tanzania imetoa Amri ya kusitisha Mgomo wa Madaktari


Kufuatia Tangazo la Chama cha Madaktari nchini (MAT) la kuanza mgomo siku ya Jumamosi tarehe 23 Juni, 2012, Mahakama Kuu ya Tanzania,Kitengo cha kazi,Dar es Salaam imetoa amri ya kusitisha mgomo huo mpaka hapo pande zote mbili yaani Serikali na Chama cha Madaktari Tanzania (MAT) yatakaposikilizwa na kutolewa uamuzi.

• Amri hiyo ya Mahakama imetolewa kufuatia maombi namba 73 ya 2012 yaliyowasilishwa chini ya hati ya dharura na Mwanasheria Mkuu wa Serikali dhidi ya Chama cha Madaktari Tanzania (MAT).Sababu za msingi amabazo zimepelekea Mahakama kuu kutoa amri hiyo upande mmoja ni pamoja na;

• Iwapo mgomo huo utatokea utakuwa na kuwa amri hii isipotolewa madhara yake ni makubwa isiyoweza kufidiwa kwa namna yoyote ile kama vile kupoteza maisha n.k

• Wajibu maombi,ambao ni MAT, inaundwa na Madaktari ambao wapo katika Sekta ambayo inatoa huduma mahsusi (essential service sector), Aidha Chama cha Madaktari Tanzania kimetangaza mgomo bila kufuatia taratibu zilizoanishwa katika Kifungu cha 76(1 na 2) cha Sheria ya Kazi (Employment and Labour Relations Act No 6 ya 2004.

Masharti hayo ni

• Kuzuia wafanyakazi walio katika Sekta Muhimu kugoma na kama wakigoma,

• Kuwepona makubalianao ya pamoja ya kutoa huduma za msingi wakati mgomo ukiendelea.

Kwa misingi hii,Mahakama Kuu ya Tanzania, kwa Chama cha Madktari Nchini na wanachama wake kusitisha na kutoshiriki katika mgonmo huo.

Slave Shoe Sneakers/ Raba za Kitumwa!



Jamani hata haya hawana! Ujue hakuna mtu mweusi hata moja alikuwepo wakati hii design ya raba inatoka.  Weusi ndo wanaoogoza kwa idadi ya wafungwa Marekani, halafu tusisahau kuwa weusi walikuwa watumwa hapa kwa zaidi ya miaka 200!  Wafungwa wanavaa rangi ya orange! Hebu cheki hii design.  Tumetukanwa vibaya sana!

To Adidas:

I am horrified at the design of this shoes. As an African American this is an insult to us.  Why? Our ancestors were not considered human, they were chained and shackled, beaten.  Today, the legacy continues as blacks disproportionately make up a large number of the prison population. ORANGE is a prison color! They wear chains and shackles in there.  So this must be some kind on subtle conditioning technique! Shame on Adidas! I will never buy anything labelled Adidas ever again.

Msimamo wa John Mnyika Juu ya Bajeti!

Msimamo wangu wa sasa juu ya Kauli yangu!


Nitatoa tamko la kina baadae kuhusu kilichotokea lakini kwa ufupi ubovu wa bajeti hii ni matokeo ya udhaifu wa Rais Kikwete, yeye ndiye aliyesaini Mpango wa Taifa wa miaka mitano kama Kiongozi Mkuu wa Nchi tena kwa wino mwekundu kama Amiri Jeshi Mkuu. Na yeye ndiye Mwenyekiti wa baraza la mawaziri, bajeti hii iliyoacha kuzingatia mpango wa Taifa imepita kwenye baraza alilloliongoza, pia kushindwa kutekelezwa kwa bajeti iliyopita ni matokeo pia ya udhaifu wa taasisi ya Urais.

Pia kwa mujibu wa Katiba Rais ndiye ambaye anapeleka bajeti bungeni, Waziri mwenye dhamana anapeleka tu kwa niaba. Rais amepewa mamlaka makubwa juu ya bajeti ibara ya 99 imeweka mipaka kuhusu mambo ambayo bunge lina mamlaka nayo huku ibara ya 90 inasema bunge likikataa bajeti rais ana mamlaka ya kuvunja bunge. Hivyo Rais Kikwete anapaswa kuagiza Waziri wa Fedha bajeti iondolewe irudi kwenye baraza la mawaziri ikafanyiwe marekebisho!

Mimi Katika Sinema That's My Boy





Wadau katika Sinema That's My Boy, ambayo imetoka kwenye theaters wiki hii, mimi nilikuwa Stand In wa Luenell ambaye anaigiza katika hii sinema kama Champale ambaye ni Stripper (mvuo nguo).    Champale ni mama mtu mzima anayepnda kutembea na matiti nje.  Matiti ambayo mnaona ni feki.  Kazi ya Stand In ni kuhakikisha kuwa mwanga, microphone nk. ziko sawa kabla ya Stelingi kuingia kufanya kazi yake. Kila kitu ambayo utaona kafanya Luenell, nilifanya mimi kwanza.  Wali-shoot mwaka jana katka sehemu mbalimbali Massachusetts.

 Katika kideo hii walikuwa wananitumia kupima rigging kwenye pole kwa vile mimi na Luenell tulikuwa na uzito sawa.   Nilifundishwa siku kadhaa kabla ya hayo mazoezi jinsi ya kupanda hiyo pole. Hivyo alipoingia kufanya kazi yake ilienda smooth.  Hii ni ile scene ambayo anakul mayai na sausage.  Nilishinda nao wiki nzima katika seti ya Strip Club. Ni wiki ambayo sitasahau maishani mwangu.  Kama unatafuta sinema ya kuangali wiki hii napendekeza That' s My Boy!

Kwa vile sinema imetoka narushusiwa kuongea kuhusu ushirikiano wango katika hiyo sinema. Lazima niseme kuwa Adam Sandler ni mtu poa sana.

Picha kutoka Sinema, niliinginiwa sana kichwa chini miguu juu kabla ya Luenell kuingia kufanya kazi yake.

Mimi na Lunell mwaka jana kwenye set ya That's My Boy. Hayo matiti ni feki!

Fina Mango is Back!

Fina Mango
Kutoka Bongo Celebrity:


Although she has been out of the limelight for a couple of years now, Fina Mango, remains one of the familiar faces and names in Tanzania. For many folks, she used to be their every morning “ritual” when, together with Masoud Kipanya; they used to run one of the most listened to morning radio shows in Tanzania (Power Breakfast on Clouds FM). Then it all ended in July 2008…as sad as it was.

As it turns out, Fina left the radio but the radio never left her, at least not to her fans. We have been asked thousands of times about her whereabouts and whether she is coming back to the airwaves anytime soon. Her listeners miss her insight and most likely her voice.

The good news, as you are about to read, is that Fina has been busy building an empire of herself in just a different way. She is now the Managing Director of one of the fastest growing and respected PR Company called 1Plus Communications.

To catch up with her and for the benefits of the fans that have never stopped asking about her, I tracked Fina for an exclusive interview whereby we talked much about how and where she has been all this time and her journey into entrepreneurship.

Court orders Lulu’s lawyers to Provide proof on her Age


Monday, 11 June 2012

The Citizen Correspondent

Dar es Salaam. The High Court in Dar es Salaam yesterday ordered defence lawyers of movie actress Elizabeth Michael alias Lulu to present documents supporting their claim she is under the age of 18.Judge Fauz Twaibu ordered the defence lawyers to present the evidence and supporting documents by way of affidavit on June 13.

Lulu is charged at the Kisutu Resident Magistrate’s Court with murdering local movie star Steven Kanumba on April 7, this year, at Sinza Vatican.

Defence counsel led by advocate Peter Kibatala filed the application at the High Court seeking the determination of the accused’s age. The lawyers stated that Lulu has not attained the age of 18 years to merit prosecution in an adult court.

The application by Mr Kibatara followed a decision by the lower court to turn down their request to transfer the murder case to a juvenile court on the ground that the lower court lacked jurisdiction to entertain the matter. However, in his ruling yesterday, Judge Twaib quashed and set aside the decision by the resident magistrate’s court to refuse to entertain the application, saying it was an error in law and an abdication of duty.

“Consequently, I hold that the lower court was wrong to refuse to entertain the application, thinking that such an enquiry could only be done by this court.

I quash and set aside the decision of the Kisutu Court,” the judge ruled.

The judge said that, considering the seriousness of the charge facing the applicant and the urgency of determining whether or not the applicant is entitled to the benefits of the Child Act and in the interest of justice, the court is invoking its supervisory powers under Section 44 of the Magistrate’s Court Act and shall proceed to determine the correct age of the applicant in terms of Section 113 of the Child Act.

The judge said that the nature and seriousness of the charge facing the applicant, the lack of any possibility for securing bail, during the pendency of the charge and undisputed urgency of the matter require that the controversy about her age be determined the soonest.

He further ruled that, in the meantime, the proceedings of the murder case at the lower court should stay, pending determination of the applicant’s age in the High Court. The judge ordered the applicant’s counsel to produce evidence on their client’s age on June 13 while prosecution required submitting their reply on June 20 while the hearing would be on June 25.

Mawaziri waKenya Wafa Katika Ajaili ya Helikopta!

Rest in Peace Waziri Saitoti wa Kenya. Watu walioshuhudia ajali wanasema kuwa wakishindwa kuwasaidia kwa vile ilitokea moto mkali sana.  Kabla ya kifo chake, Waziri Saitoti alitangaza kuwa angegombea Urais wa Kenya katika uchaguzi ujao mwaka 2013.

Kenyan minister's death in helicopter crash fuels terrorism fears 

The Late Honourable George Saitoti  1945-2012

 The architect of Kenya's military campaign in Somalia and a leading presidential candidate for next year's election has died in a helicopter crash in the hills outside the capital, Nairobi.


The Internal Security Minister, George Saitoti, and at least five of his colleagues died when the police helicopter they were travelling in crashed on the outskirts of the city. Authorities are investigating the cause of the crash, which comes at a time when Kenya is on high alert for terrorist attacks. "As we speak now, nobody knows the cause of the accident," the Prime Minister Raila Odinga said yesterday.

Mr Saitoti pushed for Kenya's intervention last year in neighbouring Somalia. Since then, there has been a spate of grenade attacks blamed by police on supporters of the Somali militant group al-Shabaab. One person was killed and dozens were injured last month in a firebomb attack on a Nairobi shopping centre that has been linked to al-Shabaab. The Islamist group has threatened an attack against a major Kenyan target in the coming month.
Mr Saitoti, 66, was one of the country's most prominent politicians, a veteran of the authoritarian government of Daniel Arap Moi. Mr Saitoti had been Vice-President and held several ministries.
He was implicated in the country's largest corruption scandal, the Goldenberg affair, in which billions of dollars of public money were stolen as part of a gold export scheme.
After a period of political exile he returned to the cabinet under the current President Mwai Kibaki, whose administration was revealed by its own anti-corruption tsar, John Githongo, to be involved in similar grand corruption schemes.
An unusual figure in senior Kenyan politics, Mr Saitoti had a mixed background from the Masai and Kikuyu tribes. His sudden death nine months before a crucial election in East Africa's biggest economy may force a reorganisation of alliances in a campaign set to be dominated by the rivalry of Mr Odinga and the former Finance Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, the son of Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya's first president.

Megachurch Pastor Creflo Dollar Arrested.


Creflo Dollar Police Mugshot

ATLANTA—Megachurch pastor and televangelist Creflo Dollar -- who has drawn scrutiny for his flashy lifestyle and preaching that prosperity is good -- was arrested early Friday after authorities say he slightly hurt his 15-year-old daughter in a fight at his metro Atlanta home.
Fayette County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call of domestic violence at the home in unincorporated Fayette County around 1 a.m., said investigator Brent Rowan. The pastor and his daughter were arguing over whether she could go to a party when Dollar "got physical" with her, leaving her with "superficial injuries," Rowan said.
The 15-year-old was the one who called authorities, and her 19-year-old sister corroborated the story, Rowan said.
Dollar faces misdemeanor charges of simple battery and cruelty to children. He bonded out of Fayette County jail Friday morning.
"As a father I love my children and I always have their best interest at heart at all times, and I would never use my hand to ever cause bodily harm to my children," Dollar said in a statement released by his lawyer Nikki Bonner. "The facts in this case will be handled privately to further protect my children. My family thanks you for your prayers and continued support."
Dollar will make no further comments since he's involved in the ongoing criminal matter, but he is expected to preach Sunday, Bonner said.
The 50-year-old leads the Creflo Dollar Ministries and is the pastor for World Changers Church International in the Atlanta suburb of College Park, which serves nearly 30,000 members, according to the church's website. World Changers Church-New York hosts over 6,000 worshippers each week, the website says. Four satellite churches are located in Georgia along with others in Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Washington, Cleveland, Dallas and Houston.
He and his wife Taffi, a co-pastor at the church, have five children, according to the website.

TSN Haijamtelekeza Athumani Hamisi

TAARIFA KWA VYOMBO VYA HABARI: TSN HAIJAMTELEKEZA ATHUMANI HAMISI

Athumani Hamisi Akiongea na Waandishi wa Habari jijin Dar juzi
Tarehe 5 Juni,2012, mfanyakazi wa Kampuni ya Magazeti ya Serikali (TSN), ambaye amelemaa baada ya kupata ajali ya gari, Bwana Athumani Hamisi, aliitisha mkutano wa waandishi wa habari kwenye ukumbi wa Maelezo, Dar es Salaam, na kutoa taarifa iliyojenga taswira kuwa ametelekezwa na TSN pamoja na Serikali.

TSN inapenda kufafanua kuwa Serikali na kampuni hii, ambayo ilimwajiri Athumani tarehe 1/09/2006 kama Mpiga picha Mwandamizi, wamemhudumia mfanyakazi huyo kikamilifu tangu alipopata ajali tarehe 12 Septemba, 2008 hadi sasa, na huduma hiyo inaendelea.

Baada ya kutokea ajali hiyo, TSN kama mwajiri ilisimamia matibabu yake ya awali katika hospitali ya Taifa ya Muhimbili Kitengo cha Mifupa (MOI) mpaka Serikali, kwa kupitia Wizara ya Afya ilipomhamishia Netcare Rehabilitation Hospital nchini Afrika Kusini kwa matibabu zaidi.

Serikali ililipia gharama za matibabu yake yote akiwa Afrika Kusini kwa kipindi cha mwaka mmoja na miezi saba, ambayo yanazidi shilingi milioni mia moja. Gharama hizo ni pamoja na ununuzi wa kigari maalum ambacho Athumani anatumia sasa.

TSN kama mwajiri ililipa nauli ya ndege kwenda na kurudi pamoja na posho ya kujikimu ya mgonjwa pamoja na ndugu wasindikizaji ambao ni Bw. Hassan Hussein na Bi. Mirriam Malaquias.Posho ya kujikimu ilikuwa USD 6,210 sawa na Shilingi 9,315,000, na nauli kwa watu watatu ilikuwa ni Shilingi 3,535,869.92. Athumani aliendelea kupatiwa huduma akiwa huko Afrika Kusini kwa gharama za Serikali na TSN mpaka aliporejea nchini tarehe 08/05/2010. Gharama zilizolipwa na kampuni kwa mfanyakazi huyu hadi sasa ni takriban shilingi million 52.

Athumani aliporejea nchini alilakiwa na wafanyakazi na viongozi wa TSN na kupangiwa chumba hoteli ya Holiday Inn wakati utaratibu wa kumtafutia nyumba ya kupanga ukikamilishwa. Kampuni ilitumia kiasi cha Shilingi 1,756,979.50 kulipia hoteli. Baadaye alipelekwa kwenye nyumba ambayo alipangiwa na Kampuni katika eneo la Sinza Vatican ambapo ndipo bado anaishi hadi hivi sasa. Gharama ya nyumba kwa mwaka wa kwanza 2010 ilikuwa ni Shilingi 4,200,000 au Shilingi 350,000 kwa mwezi. Mwaka 201 mwenye nyumba alipandisha kodi hadi 400,000 kwa mwezi ambapo Kampuni ililipia Shilingi 4,800,000. Kodi hiyo imeishia Mei mwaka huu na kampuni imeshafanya mazungumzo na mwenye nyumba ili Athumani aendelee kuishi hapo kwa muda wakati mipango endelevu ya ustawi wake inafanywa kwa kuzingatia taratibu za ajira.

Mnamo tarehe 8/12/2010 Athumani alirudi tena Afrika Kusini kwa ajili ya uchunguzi wa maendeleo ya afya yake na matibabu yaligharimiwa na Serikali wakati TSN iligharamia nauli yake na ya muuguzi wake, pamoja na posho ya kujikimu Shilingi 6,300,000/-.

Pamoja na bwana Athumumai kulala kitandani kwa muda wote huo ameendelea kulipwa mshahara kamili bila kukatwa kama mfanyakazi wa kawaida ikiwa ni msaada wa kampuni kwa kuzingatia ulemavu alioupata.Mshahara aliolipwa kwa muda wote aliokuwa anaugua ni kiasi cha shilingi 26,773,000. Vile vile kampuni ilimlipa muuguzi toka Afrika Kusini ambaye alikuwa anamhudumiaa Athumani Rand 12,500 kama mshahara wake.

Kuanzia Januari 2011, mshahara wa Athumani umejumuisha asilimia 15 kama posho ya nyumba ambayo wafanyakazi wote wanalipwa. Aidha Athumani yupo kwenye mpango wa bima ya afya anayolipiwa na kampuni, ambayo inamwezesha yeye na familia yake kuweza kutibiwa katika hospitali yoyote hapa Tanzania. Kampuni inamlipia Shilingi 68,449.20 kila mwezi na bima hiyo ndiyo inayogharamia matibabu yake yote hapa nchini.

Bwana Athumani anapatiwa usafiri na TSN mara mbili kwa wiki kumtoa nyumbani hadi Muhimbili na kurudi kwa ajili ya mazoezi ya viungo.

Man Cured of AIDS: ‘I Feel Good’



Aliyepona UKIMWI, Timothy Brown
 KUTOKA ABC News

The fact that Timothy Brown is a reasonably healthy 46-year-old is no small thing. Only a few years ago, he had AIDS.

“I feel good,” Brown told ABC News. “I haven’t had any major illnesses, just occasional colds like normal people.”

Brown is the only person in the world to be cured of AIDS, the result of a transplant of blood stem cells he received to treat leukemia.

“My case is the proof in concept that HIV can be cured,” he said.

Brown got lucky. The blood stem cells he received came from a donor with a special genetic mutation that made him resistant to HIV. The genetic mutation occurs in less than 1 percent of Caucasians, and far less frequently in people of other races. Before Brown got his transplant in 2007, doctors tested nearly 70 donors for this genetic mutation before they found one who was a match.

But doctors hope that a similar solution could help other people with HIV: umbilical cord blood transplants.

Dr. Lawrence Petz, medical director of StemCyte, an umbilical cord blood bank, said although Brown was cured by his transplant, the process was complicated because the blood stem cells came from an adult donor.

“When you do that you have to have a very close match between donor and recipient,” Petz said. “With umbilical cord blood, we don’t need such a close match. It’s far easier to find donor matches.”

But it’s still not that easy. Petz and his colleagues have tested 17,000 samples of cord blood so far, and found just 102 that have the genetic HIV-resistant mutation. The team performed the first cord blood transplant on an HIV-infected patient a few weeks ago, and they have another transplant planned for a similar patient in Madrid, Spain, later this year. It will still be months before researchers can tell if the transplants have any effect on the patients’ HIV.

Petz also noted that transplants aren’t performed solely to treat AIDS. Patients who get them have an additional condition that requires a blood stem cell transplant. Curing their AIDS would be an incredible bonus.

“It can be done. It’s just a matter of time,” Petz said.

Brown had his transplant in February 2007. Today, his body shows no signs of the virus.

Brown said he feels guilty being the only person to have been cured of the virus when millions still live with it. But he hopes his story will inspire others that a cure is possible.

”I don’t want to be the only person in the world cured of HIV. I want a cure for everyone,” he said.
