Habari iliyoripotiwa na mtandao wa AFP inasema kuwa, Tanzania itatumia kiasi cha dola za Kimarekani $750,000 kuwaleta vifaru wapatao 32 kutoka nchini Afrika Kusini hadi kwenye Hifadhi ya Taifa ya Serengeti.
Akiongea kwa njia ya simu na AFP, Mkurugenzi wa Mipango wa Mbunga za Wanyama TANAPA bwana Allan Kijazi amesema kuwa inatarajiwa kuwa hadi ifikapo mwezi Aprili mwakani, vifaru 32 watakuwa wameshahamishiwa katika mbuga hiyo iliyopo mkoani Arusha. Inakadiriwa kuwa, idadi ya vifaru walimo katika mbuga ya Serengeti ni kati ya 30 -35, idadi yake inaweza kufikia 67. Ameongeza kusema kuwa, aina hii ya vifaru, yaani vifaru weusi (Diceros bicornis) awali walichukuliwa kutoka Tanzania na kupelekwa Afrika kusini na sasa wanarejeshwa katika makazi yao ya kawaida.

Gazeti tando la HabariLeo linaripoti:
Kwa mujibu wa maoni ya utafiti huo uliofanywa na taasisi ya kimataifa ya utafiti ya Afro Barometer yenye makao makuu nchini Ghana na kuongozwa na Amanda Lea Robinson wa Chuo Kikuu cha Stanford, Marekani, nchi ya Tanzania imeweka rekodi ya aina yake barani Afrika kwa kuibuka nchi pekee yenye Wananchi wenye mapenzi makubwa kwa taifa lao kuliko jambo au mfumo wowote wa kitamaduni, kiuchumi au kijamii unaowagawa katika makundi mbalimbali na matabaka.
Katika mahojiano hayo yaliyohusisha wananchi kati ya 1,200 na 2,400 katika kila nchi kati ya nchi 16 zilizochaguliwa kufanya utafiti kuhusu ujenzi wa Taifa katika nchi za Afrika, wananchi waliulizwa maswali ili kubaini iwapo wanajisikia fahari zaidi kutambulishwa kwa jina la taifa lao kwa mfano Mtanzania, au kwa jina la kitu kingine haswa kabila.
Robinson ambaye ni mwanafunzi wa Shahada ya Uzamivu (PhD) katika Idara ya Sayansi ya Siasa ya Stanford University anasema katika utafiti huo uliotolewa Septemba mwaka huu kwamba wakati wastani wa wanaopenda mataifa yao katika nchi hizo ni asilimia 42 ya wahojiwa, kwa Tanzania wanaolipenda taifa lao ni asilimia 88 ya wahojiwa wote. Nchi ya pili kwa kuwa na wananchi wanaopenda Taifa lao kuliko kabila ilikuwa Afrika Kusini ambayo asilimia 63 ya wananchi wake wanalipenda taifa lao kuliko kabila, ya tatu Namibia ambayo wiki hii ilikuwa katika mchakato wa uchaguzi wa Rais. Nchi ya nne ni Senegal asilimia 51 na ya tano Madagascar, asilimia 50. Nigeria imekuwa ya mwisho kwa kuwa na asilimia 17 tu ya wananchi wake wanaolipenda taifa lao kuliko kabila.
Rekodi hiyo ambayo ni moja ya kigezo cha nchi iliyo na ulinzi imara, imepatikana baada ya wananchi wa nchi za Afrika, wakiwemo Watanzania, kufanyiwa mahojiano maalumu kuhusu jambo la fahari wanalodhani ni muhimu kujitambulisha nalo kati ya mambo kadha wa kadha yanayotumika kumtambulisha mwanadamu. Vigezo vingine vinavyoifanya nchi kuwa na ulinzi imara na madhubuti licha ya uzalendo wa wananchi wake kulipenda taifa lao ni teknolojia ya vita, ushirikiano mzuri na nchi marafiki zikiwemo nchi jirani, wingi wa wanajeshi, bajeti inayotumika kwa ajili ya ulinzi na usalama na idadi ya watu.

Kwa wale wafuatilia habari, mtakumbuka wiki iliyopita tulipachika video hapa kwa ajili ya watu kuweza kutizama kwa ufupi yaliyorekodiwa mwaka 1996 katika harakati za kuwaondoa wanavijiji katika maeneo ya uchimbaji madini eneo la Bulyanhulu. Baadhi yenu mliiona na kushukuru. Katika takwimu watu wapatao 1197 waliweza kuitizama video ile. Kwa bahati mbaya, video hii haipo tena mtandaoni kwa sababu ambazo hazijawekwa bayana, aliyeiweka hajatoa maelezo ya kwa nini ameiondoa.Leo, gazeti la Serikali liandikwalo kwa lugha ya Kiingereza lina habari yenye kichwa cha habari kinachosomeka "The 1996 Bulyanhulu killings were a hoax" na maelezo yafuatayo:
TANZANIA has already resolved the 1996 dispute involving the alleged killings of miners at the Canada-owned Bulyanhulu Gold Corporation. The matter was concluded when instruments detailed to investigate the deaths found no evidence in the claims at the time. The Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office responsible for Disaster Management, Mr Philip Marmo, said this when interviewed by 'Daily News on Saturday' on the action the government has taken to find answers to allegations that there had been human rights abuses when reallocating people from the area.
"We used both local and international instruments to investigate the claims and the inquiries were eventually brought to rest by the findings," he said. He also said that the issue had reached courts of law whose verdict had given a clean bill of health to the process. But he also attributed the allegations' wide coverage in media to the fact that 1996 was an election year that prompted some opposition politicians to capitalize on the matter for political ends. With regard to the alleged killings of artisanal miners in 1996 at the Bulyanhulu Gold Corporation, he said that a task force comprising police officers, local commissioners and international civil society officials had been formed at the time and came up with the conclusion that there had been no killings.
Neither had there been any human rights abuses. Police, he said, had investigated criminal allegations but had not come up with any evidence. According to the current arrangement, when a mining company wants to work at a particular area where there are settlements, the government uses the World Bank resettlement policy which stipulates that people have to be taken to another favourable place on agreement. President Jakaya Kikwete and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper were expected today to discuss a way forward in developing the mining industry when they arrived for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Summit in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
Canada is home to Barrick, one of the biggest mining multinationals in the world with mining interests in Tanzania.

Police in Singida region in Tanzania summoned and interrogated Freelance Journalist Jumbe Ismailly on 19 November 2009 for two hours and nine minutes from 11.00 am to 1.09 pm on allegations of defaming the Regional Commissioner Parseko Kone and finally released and told that they will be calling him as part of investigation going on against him.
According to Ismailly, he was interrogated at the office of Singida Regional Crime Investigation Officer (RCO) for allegedly reporting and broadcasting information that defamed Singida Regional Commissioner. Ismailly, the reporter of Kulikoni and Tanzania Daima Swahili daily newspapers and Channel Ten televison, said that he was told by police during the interrogation that the Regional Commissioner was not happy with his reporting on his individual and regional issues. Ismailly explained he was interrogated by Police Officer with number E.6940 D/CPL identified himself by only one name of Lugendo. The Police Officer told the reporter that the Regional Commissioner had submitted his complaints to the regional police against him since 11 August 2009.
The Police Officer explained to the reporter that Kone had complained that he has been defamed several times by journalists from Singida region through the media. The reporter was presented with press cuttings of stories he wrote about the Regional Commissioner since 2006. He said the stories presented to him include one with a headline “Mkuu wa Mkoa Singida Kuburuzwa Mahakamani na Wanakijiji” (Singida Regional Commissioner To Be Taken To Court by Villagers) published in the Kulikoni newspaper of 17 March 2009, “Watendaji Sita Rumande kwa Kushindwa Kuandaa Mkutano” (Six Government Officials in Police Custody for Failing to Organize a Meeting) published in the Nipashe newspaper in 2006 and “Mkuu wa Mkoa Amsimamisha Kazi Mume wa Mbunge” (Regional Commissioner Stops Employment of Member of Parliament's Husband) published in Tanzania Daima newspaper of January 2007).
He said Kone complained further that during one of his 5 March 2009 meetings at Kisasida village, journalists uttered insult words against him. Although Ismailly acknowledged writing the above stories which he said were based on truth and facts, he denied to have been attending the meeting at Kisasida village.
He acknowledged that there was neither any incident of beating nor intimidation during his interrogation. He was later discharged at 1.09 PM the same day.

About 4,000 residents of Muleba District in Kagera Region, have been rendered homeless as a result of heavy rain that was accompanied with strong winds.
The rain has affected residents of 10 sub-villages in Mubunda ward in the district. Muleba district commissioner Angelina Mabulla, said yesterday that at least 1,771 acres of banana and beans farms had been destroyed by last week's rain that also wrecked havoc in Kitoko, Kisoju and Nyakasenyi sub-villages.
Victims of damage caused by rain in are now in dire need of at least 294 tonnes of relief food, the Government said yesterday. Ms Mabula said agriculture and disaster management experts are in the area to assess basic supplies needs for 10 affected sub-villages in Mubunda ward. She said 184 tonnes of maize and 110 of beans are required and that the process of applying for relief food from the Government Strategic Grain Reserves (SGR), had started. Ms Mabula, however, did not explain if the affected villagers were also in need of other humanitarian aid such as tents, blankets and medicines. The loss incurred as a result of the damage caused by rain, according to the district commissioner, stood at Sh1.3 billion.
The rain left 822 households with 4,448 family members homeless, as roofs of 21 houses were pulled down. Roofs of public buildings like schools, churches, mosques and teachers' houses were also pulled down by the rain.
Ms Mabula named some of the affected areas as Kitoko, Kisoju and Nyakasenyi villages in Mubunda ward. Residents of the sub-villages were currently sharing shelter with neighbours, she explained. "The Government is sending experts to the affected sub-villages to assess and determine actual loss caused by the rain and needed emergency humanitarian aid," she said.
The rain, which started at around 2:00pm last Sunday, lasted for over an hour, destroyed 1,644 acres of banana and beans farms, and 127 acres of maize.

The Grizzlies plan to ship the jerseys to impoverished children in Tanzania - the birthplace of rookie center Hasheem Thabeet (quoted from source http://commercialappeal.com ).
The Grizzlies had planned to give away 3,000 promotional Allen Iverson jerseys on December 4th, 2009 against the Mavericks as an honor but, that will not happen because Iverson terminated his contract on November 16th. Team officials immediately ordered the Marc Gasol t-shirts given to fans instead.
So what will happen to all of those unused Iverson jerseys?
The Grizzlies plan to ship the unused jerseys to Tanzania, the birthplace of rookie center Hasheem Thabeet .
An NBA program -- Basketball Without Borders -- will facilitate the shipment to the African country. Basketball Without Borders is the NBA's global basketball development program that helps education, health and wellness. "We are thrilled to partner with Hasheem Thabeet and the NBA's international program Basketball Without Borders," team president of business operations Greg Campbell said before adding, "This also gives us the opportunity to recognize Marc Gasol for his inspiring start to the season."
The cost of first line malaria drug in Tanzania, Allu, will be lowered to 400 shillings ($0.30) per dose, Tanzania Government has announced. This is after the decision to allow private sector players to import the drug. Minister for Health and Social Welfare, Prof. David Mwakyusa revealed this at the weekend when launching 'United Against Malaria' campaign in Tanzania. Prof Mwakyusa conceded that the current price of between 14,000 shillings ($10.50) and 18,000 shillings per dose was too high for majority of Tanzanians to afford.
According to the Minister, from June next year private sector players, through a special arrangement known as AMFM, will be allowed to import the drug at lower cost. "This means that all patients who will be treated in private health facilities will have to pay not more than 400 shillings for a dose of Allu," he said. Prof Mwakyusa said the move would contribute immensely in reducing malaria prevalence in the country as most people would afford the drug.He noted that the drug was very effective in curing malaria but the problem had been its exorbitant price and circulation as it could be found in government health facilities only. He said it was estimated that 16 to 18 million people get malaria each year. Of these cases around 80,000 die annually, most of them being children under five years and pregnant mothers. According to the Minister, the disease is estimated to consume 3.4% of annual gross domestic product (GDP) that is about $240 million a year through reduced productivity in the workforce, absenteeism from school and work and the direct and indirect costs of treatment or deaths, the newspaper noted.

We continue to hope that this Government's action will ultimately benefit the common mwananchi and that, the respective Ministry will continue to oversee the whole process in order to prevent any chances that greedy private companies jump to the opportunity at hand and start ripping off the poor mwananchi's coins.
Tanzania, just like many other countries, has a brain drain problem; not enough health care professionals especially, medical doctors, to treat its 40 million people. To combat this, the Tanzanian Government trains clinical workers to treat most of the common conditions and infectious diseases and deputizes them assistant medical officers, or AMOs. Using the "task-shifting" system, most hospitals are almost entirely staffed by AMOs. Even with AMOs, health prospects in Tanzania are grim: a mother dies in child birth every hour. According to a study released in August in the Journal of Health Affairs, Africa has only 30 percent of the 1.16 million doctors, nurses and midwives it needs.

Kinyonga magomberae. Credit: Michele Menegon
It is amazing how Tanzania's treasures continue to be discovered and exposed, mainly with foreigners (not that it's a bad thing) while her own people are either ignorant, as in not knowing how to scientifically report their own treasures, and for those few educated ones, I would really not be able to say anything on their behalf... it's a pity.
Well, once again the world got hit with pleasant news of discoveries.
Start with the kinyonga discovery
In one of the protected areas of Tanzania, the Magombera Forest (Lushoto, Tanga, Tanzania), a team of scientists have discovered a new species of Chameleon which they named Kinyonga magomberae (the Magombera chameleon). Dr Andrew Marshall, from the Environment Department at the University of York, first spotted the animal while surveying monkeys in the Magombera Forest when he disturbed a twig snake eating one. The specimen was collected, tested and compared to two others found by scientists in the same area and has now been named Kinyongia magomberae (the Magombera chameleon) in research published in the African Journal of Herpetology. Read more about this discovery on the ScienceNewsDaily.org
Now, how many countless times you (Tanzanian) have came across this kinyonga? How many times has the 'mkulima' came across this kinyonga when going or working in their "shamba"s? I am pretty sure even many 'watalii's have come across this kinyonga, but they, just like us have failed to report them scientifically, reason being, the lengthy process one has to undergo to have it documented or ignorance (the former to the educated Tanzanian and the later to the Tanzanian majority).
End with the glittering 'goodies' discovery
Not so news new, except for the location, that could be new.
We sleep, wake and walk on gold until somebody comes with their equipment and shouts 'gold discovery!!' then declares, 'no more you mwananchi in here', sorry, we found you here but we don't want you here anymore. Pack and leave.
But sir, where to? where are we supposed to go.
I don't know. Go anywhere, we just want you to leave. Go. Go. We care less of where you should go.
You think I am joking, right? No I am not. If you think I am, then you may want to watch the video documentary I posted here last week, in order to understand how sorry I feel. You may also want to watch the movie, 'Blood Diamonds' (that's if you haven't). Better still, read the UN's 'Conflict Diamonds'.
AllAfrica news reports that: Tanzania could become the biggest gold producing country in Africa following new discoveries of gold in the most unlikely areas of Lindi and Nachingwea districts in the south of the country. This will be the first gold mining venture (Mkuvia Gold Project) to be located in southern Tanzania. Most gold mining is happening in the Lake Victoria zone, Mbeya and Rukwa region, but the south wasn't until now regarded as a potentially gold bearing zone. Tanzania has become one of the fastest-emerging gold producers in Africa, and is now the continent's third-largest gold-producing country after South Africa and Ghana. Annual production of gold has increased from around 43.2 tonnes in 2002 to about 48.0 tonnes in 2003. Based on ongoing projects and developing mines, Tanzania's estimated gold reserves have been calculated at a conservative total that is in excess of 36 M oz (1000 t).

Will it be different for us? Why and How? The histories in Ogoniland and Upper Delta (Nigeria), Katanga (Congo DRC), Angola, Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast, all have me worried.
Not that I am being blunt skeptical about the whole thing, but then again, why wouldn't I? All that we are used of hearing is 'good promises', those 'empty words' from the 'greedy' in the name of business. Prove me otherwise then that 'mining is a cursed business'?. You may want to convince me of a number of aid given and taxes paid to aid government's budget, but could you cite to me exactly how the lives of the local people have improved before the beginning of mining construction and production?
Probably, you may argue that, by not drilling the mines, the common 'mwananchi' would still be floating in poverty, and I would ask you, wouldn't it be just fine had they have not to worry about them being evicted from their ancestral land in order to give way to the majority 'greedy investors'? And where is the government in all this? just standing-by. Standing there like a 'rotten king' who is ready to sell his own people for a short time profit? Toothless and corrupt governments, who needs those? better not have one at all.
You may also argue that mining companies pay their dues as directed by the government, oh, you know that's a rotten bull's crap! Don't lie to yourself now.
PS: are there any words you couldn't understand? find their meanings from the "Kiswahili translation" engines.
A few days a go we published a post about a hacking tool that was developed and started attacking jail-broken iPhones. This week again news out there suggests that there has been another developed tool which targets and attacks vulnerable jail-broken iPhones. The most affected ones with this new tool are those which have SSH installed in them, also if the default password was not changed, this makes it even easier for the attack to propagae. So, this worm gains access to the vulnerable iPhone, changes the default password to something 'unmentionable', then spreads itself out or throws up a funny picture.
What kind of damage it does?
Well, just like the other one, the worlm steals your information and send it to servers somewhere and that's how crooks gets access to your personal data and start the stealing spree.
If you are one of the people with that kind of phone, you may want to read the previous post on how to protect your phone and also learn how to protect your phone from this new attach via Paul Ducklin's blog blog.

It's a human nature when it comes to saving money by spending less and less and still expecting to receive a good service (given available options) in return. So is the case with phone calls.
A huge telephone bill on top of other bills is not always sweet. It is for that reason I have always thanked whoever introduced the VoIP system. VOIP stands for Voice Over the Internet Protocol. It is a way of making telephone calls using the internet that is connected to any form of computer machine (laptop, desktop, smart phone, tablet e.t.c). I have been a keen user of VoIPs for three years now and it has served me a lot of money.
So, here is a list of affordable VoIP clients that I know would help you make free or cheap phone calls, both locally and internationally.
Like chef's or bartenders, bloggers too like to leave the 'aha' flavors til the end, so, here is the flavor:
Which client did I miss in this list? Be generous and share with us in the comment box.
