WAZIRI MKUU APOKEA VITABU KUCHANGIA SHULE ALIYOSOMA



WAZIRI MKUU Mizengo Pinda amepokea msaada wa vitabu 895 vyenye thamani ya sh. milioni 6.5/- ikiwa ni jitihada ya wadau mbalimbali kuchangia shule ya msingi aliyosoma ya Kakuni iliyoko kijiji cha Kibaoni, wilayani Mlele, mkoani Katavi.

Waziri Mkuu amepokea msaada huo jana mchana (Jumanne, Mei 26, 2015) kwenye shule mpya ya msingi Kakuni ambayo bado inaendelea kujengwa kwenye kijiji cha Kibaoni.

Akizungumza katika hafla hiyo fupi mara baada ya kupokea msaada huo, Waziri Mkuu Pinda aliishukuru kampuni ya General Booksellers Ltd ya kutoka Dar es Salaam kwa msaada huo ambao alisema utachangia kwa kiasi kikubwa kuitimiza ndoto yake aliyokuwa nayo ya kuisaidia jamii iliyomsomesha.

“Wazo la ujenzi wa shule mpya ya msingi Kibaoni lilitokana na ukweli kwamba nilisoma na kumaliza kwenye shule hii ya Kakuni. Nikiwa ni mtumishi wa Serikali, ni Mbunge na sasa hivi ni Waziri Mkuu wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania nilijiuliza hivi shule hii ninaweza kuiacha hivi hivi?”

“Nilijiuliza sana ni jambo gani ambalo naweza kulifanya la kusaidia wanakijiji wenzangu na kata nzima ya Kibaoni kama shukrani kwa kunilea na kunifikisha hapa nilipo. Ndipo wazo la kujenga shule niliyosoma likazaliwa kama mwaka mmoja na nusu uliopita,” alisema Waziri Mkuu wakati akiwahutubia wazazi, walimu na wanafunzi.

Mapema, akiwasilisha msaada huo, mwakilishi wa kampuni ya General Booksellers Ltd, Bw. Joachim Masaburi alisema wameamua kuchangia vitabu hivyo kwa kutambua umuhimu wa elimu kwa watoto lakini pia wanatambua juhudi za Serikali za kutoa elimu bora.

Akitoa mchanganuo wa vitabu hivyo, Bw. Masaburi alisema: “Kuna vitabu 600 kwa ajili ya shule ya awali ambavyo kati yake 300 ni vya ngazi ya chini (nursery) na vitabu vingine 300 ni vya ngazi ya juu (pre-school). Vyote ni vya hisabati, Kiingereza na sayansi”.

“Kwa shule ya msingi wao tunawapatia kivunge cha kufundishia mfumo wa mwili wa binadamu kama sehemu ya masomo ya sayansi, hiki kina thamani ya sh. 550,000/-,” alisema.

Pia kampuni hiyo ilitoa msaada wa vitabu vingine 295 vya Baiolojia, Fizikia, Uraia, Kiswahili kwa ajili ya shule ya sekondari ya Mizengo Pinda iliyoko kijijini hapo.

Hadi sasa majengo yaliyokamilika kwenye shule hiyo ni madarasa 14, jengo la utawala lenye ofisi za walimu na maktaba mbili (wanafunzi na walimu), jengo la TEHAMA la wanafunzi lenye darasa moja, ukumbi mdogo na ofisi za walimu na jengo moja la choo lenye matundu 48. Pia ujenzi wa nyumba sita za walimu uko kwenye hatua ya kuezeka. Nyumba hizo zinajengwa na Shirika la Nyumba la Taifa (NHC). Ujenzi wa choo kingine chenye matundu 48 umeanza.

Waziri Mkuu aliwaomba wananchi wengine wamsaidie kutimiza ndoto yake kwani bado anakabiliwa na kazi ya kuweka umeme, maji, kujenga nyumba nane za walimu, bwalo na jiko, karakana nne za ufundi, ujenzi wa kituo cha walimu cha mafunzo ya muda mfupi na utunzaji taarifa (Resource Centre), viwanja vya michezo vya kisasa vinavyozingatia michezo yote, mfumo wa uvunaji maji ya mvua, mfumo wa maji safi na maji taka, nyumba mbili za walinzi na uzio wa shule.

Alitaja vitu vingine ambavyo bado vinahitaji kuchangiwa ni meza za walimu – za ofisini na darasani, viti vya walimu – vya ofisini na darasani, madawati ya shule ya msingi na ya awali, meza na viti vya maktaba zote mbili, meza na viti vya bwalo – shule ya msingi na shule ya awali.

Africa Day: Ideas For Africa - By Cristina Duarte, Candidate for President of the African Development Bank (AfDB)





"No other institution is better suited than the AfDB to give Africa the needed boost to reach the promised land" - Cristina Duarte*
 
ABIDJAN, Côte d’Ivoire, May 25, 2015/ -- As we celebrate Africa Day, it gives me great pleasure to congratulates our continent for the remarkable vision it has had by embarking, decades ago, in a project aimed at achieving its unity. This year's Africa Day coincides with the return to its headquarters of the prime institution of African Development -The African Development Bank (AfDB).  It is therefore timely to once more pay tribute to the founding fathers who on May 25th, 1963 established the Organization of African Unity (OAU) which was replaced, in 2002, by the current African Union.
 
 
No other institution is better suited than the AfDB to give Africa the needed boost to reach the promised land. As a candidate to lead this important organization, I am therefore pleased to call on all the stakeholders, including outside partners of the bank, to play a more coordinated and effective role in ensuring that Africa Day becomes a landmark moment not just of celebration but for sober reflexions on needed practical ideas, actions and proposals aimed at fostering Africa's Development.
 
In order to show my commitment to what can be our continent's 'Bourse d'Idees', 'Stock-Exchange for Ideas'', I am delighted to put on the table three ideas for consideration.
 
1- I call for the institution of a Prize For Women, to be named after an African Woman who made a decisive contribution to the continent's march. Such a Prize may, after consultation with relevant people, be named for instance after a respected African woman, including those who passed away, as long as they have a legacy worthy to be celebrated.
 
2-I call for the building of ecosystems within the continent that promotes innovation that could include various aspects such as innovation awards, fund for research, industrial attachments, links between academics, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and innovators...the ultimate objective for Africa is to domesticate and democratize technology as a result of a sustained effort to develop and upgrade our capacity throughout the continent focusing on Africa's indigenous capacity for Science, Technology and innovation to address our present and future problems.
 
3- I call on African institutions, working with African States, and their outside partners, to ensure that the continent's natural resources and manufactured goods carry more local value-added while reducing the imbalances in the value-chain detrimental so far to Africa.
 
I wish Africa a great present and future while vowing to being committed to making Africa's structural transformation a reality if, as I hope, I am trusted to lead our pan-african bank.

Mhandisi Michael Kamau anakumbwa na shutuma za kutumia fedha ubadhirifu wa fedha za umma na kufanya mabadiliko katika ubunifu wa barabara ambayo tiyari ilikuwa imetengenezwa na mashauri.

Tume hio imemwandikia rais Uhuru Kenyatta ombi la kuongeza muda wa uchunguzi wa kesi zilizobaki.
Siku sitini ambazo walikuwa wamepewa kukamilisha uchunguzi wa ripoti hiyo zimetimia leo.

 ''Tumekuwa na shinikizo la kukamilisha kesi kwa wakati uliotolewa ila wajibu wetu wa kufanya uchunguzi wa kina ambao unaweza kustahimili uchunguzi mahakamani umetulazimu kuomba muda zaidi''alisema Halakhe Waqo
