Changamoto za usalama zazuia maendeleo ya Kenya kufikia malengo ya maendeleo ya UN

Na Rajab Ramah

Kuongezeka kwa matukio ya kigaidi na vitisho vingine vya usalama vinarudisha nyuma jitihada za maendeleo ya Wakenya kufikia Malengo ya Maendeleo ya Milenia (MDG), kwa mujibu wa ripoti ya maendeleo ya hivi karibuni iliyotolewa na shirika la Mpango wa Maendeleo la Umoja wa Mataifa (UNDP).

Kama zilivyo nchi nyingine katika kanda, Kenya tayari imebakia nyuma katika kufikia MDG yake kutokana na kuporomoka kwa uchumi kidunia, lakini hali ya usalama ya sasa imefanya mambo yawe mabaya zaidi, kwa mujibu wa Wilmot Reeves, mshauri wa masuala ya uchumi wa UNDP.

 "Vizuizi vya kudorora kwa uchumi kidunia na tahadhari ya kidunia imekuwa kizuizi cha ukuaji katika nchi zinazoendelea, Kenya ikiwamo, lakini sasa ugaidi na kuongezeka kwa hali ya ukosefu wa usalama ni vikwazo vingine vinavyopunguza ahadi ya kufikia malengo haya," Reeves aliimbia Sabahi muda mfupi baada ya ripoti ya maendeleo ya MDG ya 2014 kwa Nchi zilizo Kusini mwa Jangwa la Sahara iliyotolewa tarehe 7 Julai.

 MDG yaliwekwa 2000, wakati nchi wanachama wa UN zilizopoamua kuwajibika katika kutokomeza umaskini mkubwa, kuzuia kuenea kwa VVU/UKIMWI, kutoa elimu kwa wote, kupunguza vifo vya watoto, kuboresha afya ya kina mama wajawazito, kuhakikisha uendelevu wa mazingira, kuhamasisha usawa wa jinsia na kuendeleza ubia wa kidunia kwa ajili ya maendeleo ya dunia ifikapo 2015.

Dk Slaa aibua upya sakata la viungo vya maiti vilivyotupwa



Na Nuzulack Dausen 

 Dar es Salaam. Katibu Mkuu wa Chadema, Dk Willbrod Slaa amemtaka Waziri wa Afya na Ustawi wa Jamii, Dk Seif Rashid kujiuzulu kutokana na sakata la utupaji viungo vya binadamu katika Bonde la Mto Mpiji, Dar es Salaam.

Akizungumza katika hafla ya kuuaga uongozi wa Chama cha Wanafunzi wa Vyuo Vikuu wa Chadema (Chaso) na kufungua Tawi la Chuo Kikuu cha Sayansi ya Afya na Tiba Muhimbili (Muhas) jana, Dk Slaa alisema utupaji wa viungo hivyo ni udhalilishaji mkubwa wa binadamu na kwamba Serikali inatakiwa kuwajibika moja kwa moja.

“Inashangaza kuona miguu, mikono, pua vinatupwa dampo na Serikali na viongozi wake bado wamesimama. Halafu unafunga hospitali ili umuathiri nani? Si unawaathiri wanafunzi wa chuo hicho wanaoitumia kujifunza?”

 alisema na kuongeza: “Nilitarajia waziri angejiuzulu tangu siku ya kwanza baada ya kubainika vile viungo na asingejiuzulu basi Rais Jakaya Kikwete amfukuze kazi.”

Saudi King: Don’t misuse Islam for terrorism

Saudi Gazette, Jeddah. Monday, 28 July 2014

Some vested interests are tarnishing the noble image of Islam and using it to perpetuate terrorism across the world, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah has warned.

In his Eid Al-Fitr address to the citizens, expatriates and the Muslims worldwide, King Abdullah said the Kingdom has taken several measures to root out the scourge of terrorism and to protect the country’s security and stability.

The Eid, he said, is an occasion to rejoice at the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. The King extended his best wishes for the Eid to world Muslims.

“The Muslim Ummah should steadfastly strive to defeat the forces who are maligning the noble and kind image of Islam and harming the believers and their sons,” the King said.

King Abdullah’s message was read on national television by Abdulaziz Khoja, minister of culture and information. The King said it is the duty of the Ummah to guide those deviants who have fallen prey to the guiles of those who have cloaked their real intention behind religion. “Islam has got nothing to do with these nefarious designs. God willing, we will have to collectively thwart the efforts of all those who want to transform security into fear and prosperity to poverty,” he said.

These people, the King said, are worse than open enemies of the Ummah. “We will guard our blessed country against the evil deeds of these deviant forces,” he said.

KATIBA MPYA: Wassira, Lipumba, Lissu ‘wanyukana’

Dar es Salaam. Waziri wa Nchi Ofisi ya Rais, Uhusiano na Uratibu, Stephen Wassira akiwakilisha CCM, Mbunge wa Singida Mashariki, Tundu Lissu na Mwenyekiti wa CUF, Profesa Ibrahim Lipumba, jana walitoana jasho katika mdahalo wa Katiba ulioandaliwa na East African Business and Media Institute.

Mdahalo huo uliohudhuriwa na watazamaji wapatao 500, ulikuwa na mada inayosema: ‘Nani anakwamisha Upatikanaji wa Katiba Mpya.’ Kila upande ulitumia fursa hiyo kutupa shutuma kwa mwingine huku jazba na kelele vikitawala miongoni mwa waliohudhuria.

Hata hivyo, suala la muundano wa serikali ndiyo uliochukua nafasi kubwa katika mdahalo huo huku Umoja wa Katiba ya Wananchi (Ukawa) ukiishutumu Serikali ya CCM kuwa ndiyo kikwazo cha upatikanaji wa Katiba Mpya nayo ikitupa mpira huo kwa Ukawa kwa kitendo chake cha kutoka katika Bunge Maalumu la Katiba.

Profesa Lipumba alisema wahafidhina wa CCM ndiyo waliomshauri Rais Jakaya Kikwete abadilike kimsimamo kuhusu upatikanaji wa Katiba Mpya.

“Rais Kikwete alikuwa na nia njema kabisa kuhusu Katiba Mpya lakini wahafidhina wa CCM wanaopenda madaraka walipoona muundo wa serikali tatu wakambana naye akabadilisha msimamo, tunamwomba abadilike, nchi hii ni yetu sote ili tupate katiba ya wananchi,” alisema.

Lissu aliongeza kwa kusema kuwa anayekwamisha upatikanaji wa Katiba Mpya ni CCM ambao wanaweka maoni yao badala ya kujadili rasimu iliyotolewa na Tume ya Mabadiliko ya Katiba ambayo ndiyo maoni ya wananchi.

Arusha authorities press for new road

INFRASTRUCTURE: Members of the Regional Road Board sitting in Arusha recently agreed that the government should move fast on construction of the Arusha-Musoma highway to create economic activity similar to that found on the busy Arusha-Namanga road above. COURTESY PICTURE 

By Elisha Mayalla 

Members of the Regional Road Board (RRB) Committee met recently and agreed that completion of the road will boost development in and outside the region. 

Ngorongoro District Commissioner, Elias Wawa Lali said the road will play an important role for the people of Ngorongoro who have been lacking infrastructure since Tanzania’s independence.

“This road is the only remaining hope for the people of Ngorongoro and this project will completely change the livelihoods of Maasai people living in the area,” the DC said. In June, the East African Court of Justice ruled against the Tanzania government in regards to a proposal to build a road through the Serenegeti National Park. The case was brought by several wildlife activist groups in and outside Tanzania. 

 TANROADS Regional Manager, Deusdedit Kakoko said the government will continue with its plans of constructing the Arusha-Musoma highway, describing the project as vital infrastructure for the region.

Unconventional Ramadan camp draws D.C.-area kids

Ramadan Camp

BETHESDA, Md. — On a hot July afternoon, at the private Washington Waldorf School in this affluent suburb of Washington, D.C., 11-year-old Fatima is tracing an intricate swirl of Arabic script.

 It’s a calligraphic rendering of a well-known phrase from Sura (chapter) 27 of the Quran: “This is by the grace of my Lord.” Dressed in jeans, a patterned shirt, a loose gray cardigan that hangs open and a bright red hijab, Fatima is clearly something of a perfectionist.

 Leaning over the light table that illuminates the design from below, she dips her bamboo stylus into a pot of black ink and carefully contemplates her next pen stroke. “I told my mom I really liked the calligraphy — I would do this as a hobby,” she said later.

“I’m the kind of person who would, like, kill my parents not to have to go to this kind of thing, but I end up enjoying it.” Fatima is one of about 60 Washington-area Muslims ages 3 to 15 who attended Camp Ramadan, a crafts-based day camp that the organizers say is the only such program in the United States.

Ramadan Camp

Held for the second time this year, the camp mostly eschews religious practice, except for brief midday prayers. Instead, the emphasis is on traditional Islamic arts and crafts that are not commonly taught in America — including paper marbling, marquetry (wood inlay) and decorative bookbinding — as well as on personal development through community service and leadership workshops.

MUHAS: Tunatumia maiti 25 kwa mwaka kufundishia

 
Na Kalunde Jamal

Dar es Salaam. Wakati sakata la kuokotwa kwa viungo vya binadamu likiendelea kutikisa nchi, Chuo Kikuu cha Afya na Sayansi Shirikishi Muhimbili (MUHAS), kimesema kuwa hutumia maiti 25 kwa kuwafundishia wanafunzi kila mwaka. 

Pia chuo hicho hakijawahi kuagiza maiti kutoka nje ya nchi na kwamba ni mtu mmoja tu aliyewahi kutaka maiti ya mtoto wake itumike kufundishia.

 Kauli hiyo ya MUHAS imekuja siku chache baada ya Serikali kuamua kuifungia Hospitali ya Chuo Kikuu cha Kimataifa cha Tiba na Teknolojia (IMTU), baada ya kubaini kasoro kadhaa katika utendaji wake. 

Juzi, Serikali ilifanya ukaguzi wa kushtukiza IMTU, baada ya hospitali hiyo kukumbwa na kashfa ya utupaji wa mabaki ya viungo vya binadamu katika Bonde la Mto Mpiji, jijini Dar es Salaam mwanzoni mwa wiki iliyopita.

 Hata hivyo, wakati Tume ya Watu 15 iliyoundwa na Serikali kuchunguza suala hilo ikiendelea na kazi, Mkuu wa Kitengo cha Anatomy MUHAS, Profesa David Ngassapa amebainisha kuwa chuo hicho hutumia maiti 25 kwa mwaka. 

Akizungumza na gazeti hili ofisini kwake jana, Ngassapa alisema kuwa wanafunzi wa mwaka wa kwanza hutumia maiti 20, huku madaktari wanaorudi chuoni hapo kwa ajili ya mazoezi wakitumia maiti tano.

“Sheria ya mwaka 1963 inatutaka baada ya matumizi tuondoe mwili kwa heshima zote na miongoni mwa vitu ambavyo wanafunzi wanasisitizwa ni kuhakikisha wanaiheshimu miili hadi hatua za mwisho,” alisema Ngassapa.
