AZIMIO LA ARUSHA LINAPOFIKISHA MIAKA 50 : NINI KILISABABISHA KUZALIWA KWAKE?


Hivi leo Azimio la Arusha (AA) limefikisha miaka 50 ama nusu karne tangu kutangazwa kwake.... Tarehe 05.02.1977 ambayo ni miaka hamsini ama nusu karne iliyopita, lilitolewa tamko ama tangazo la kihistoria katika mji wa Arusha. Azimio hilo linaendelea kujulikana kama Azimio la Arusha hata hivi leo.



Lengo la Azimio la Arusha
Kimsingi lilikuwa ni kuboresha maisha ya Watanganyika wanyonge. Azimio la Arusha lililenga kuboresha nyanja zote za maisha ya wananchi wa kawaida lakini hasa ililenga kuboresha nguvu yao kiuchumi na kisiasa. 

Tanganyika ilijipatia uhuru wake wa kisiasa 09.12.1961 bila kufahamu kuwa uhuru wa kiuchumi uliendelea kuwa mikononi mwa wakoloni. Tanganyika ilirithi uchumi wa kibepari, tena ubapari wa kikoloni. Kwa mantiki hiyo utaona kuwa "sisi" tulikuwa na uhuru kisiasa ilihali "wao" walikuwa na uhuru wa kiuchumi.

Uchumi huo wa kibepari wa kikoloni ambao ulikuwa ukiongozwa kwa sheria za soko, ulikuwa kandamizi kwa wananchi wa kawaida. Wananchi waliofanya kazi kwa matajiri wa kigeni na kupangiwa mishahara kwa matakwa ya matajiri hao kabla ya uhuru waliendelea kufanya kazi kwa namna ile ile kama walivyofanya hata kabla ya uhuru wa kisiasa. Wakulima hali kadhalika walijikuta katika mazingira yale yale wakiuza mazao yao kwa mabwana wale wale na kwa bei zile zile za kabla ya uhuru.

Kutoka na uchumi ule wa kibepari, serikali haikuwa na uwezo wa kuingilia masuala ya uchumi huo na hivyo haikuwa rahisi kuwawezesha wananchi kuonja ama kushiriki katika furaha ya matunda ya uhuru. Hivyo basi kama ilitakiwa wananchi waonje ladha ya matunda ya uhuru wao basi ilikuwa lazima kwa TANU kudai ama kuchukua pia uhuru wa kiuchumi na mabadiliko hayo yalikuwa lazima.

Ili kusikiliza kusikiliza wananchi na kuhakikisha kuwa wanahisi faida za uhuru katika nchi yao, ndipo hapo chama cha Tanganyika African National Union kilipofanya maamuzi ya kihistoria.

Chama cha TANU kilitangaza za na historia mpya kabisa katika taifa changa la Tanganyika. Mnamo tarehe tano Februari mwaka elfu moja mia tisa sitini na saba pale mjini Arusha chama kilitangaza rasmi kuwa kuanzia siku hiyo nchi ya Tanganyika ilikuwa inaanza na inaingia katika siasa za ujamaa na kujitegemea.

Siasa ya ujamaa na kujitegemea ilijengwa juu ya nguzo mbili za (i) Utaifishaji wa njia zote kuu za uzalishaji mali na (ii) Vijiji vya ujamaa na kujitegemea kama nguzo muhimu kufikisha maendeleo kwa wananchi wengi.

Nini kilifanyika ndani ya siasa za ujamaa na kujitegemea? Hii ni mada ya wakati mwingine; kwa leo itoshe tu kuona kilichofanyika.

TANZANIA ONE OF THE MOST ATTRACTIVE COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD... SO LOVELY INDEED!

Tanzania
Tanzania is the Land of the Serengeti, Lake Victoria, Lake Natron and Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater, Zanzibar, the Spice Islands, Dar Es Salaam and a million more, Tanzania is almost beyond belief.
Mount Kilimanjaro rises over 3 miles above the surrounding plains, making it one of the world’s two mountains with greatest vertical relief, together with our own McKinley. It is also the largest free standing mountain in the world.
Birthplace of Freddie Mercury, the country is one of the very best wildlife destinations on earth. During the great migrations between Kenya’s Maasai Mara and Tanzania’s Serengeti, which means ‘Endless Plains’, the largest migration of mammals in the world takes place. This spectacle sees millions of animals moving in search of better grazing and prey, and has been called the greatest sight on Earth. In February alone, an estimated 500,000 wildeest calves are born on the planes! 
The immense flamingo flocks that dominate Lake Manyara and Lake Natron are breathtaking, and this is made all the more stunning by the fact that Natron itself is a vivid pink color due to its chemical content. Tanzania is almost too beautiful to believe.

INNOVATION IS THE MOTHER OF DEVELOPMENT: UVUMBUZI NI MAMA WA MAENDELEO TANZANIA TUPO WAPI?


Uvumbuzi huendana na ubunifu. Kila mvumbuzi ni mbunifu. Ripoti ya dunia inaonyesha kuwa nchi zenye uwezo mkubwa kutumia uvumbuzi ama kuuzalisha zinaendelea vyema zaidi kiuchumi kwa kuwa uvumbuzi ni kichocheo muhimu cha maendeleo.
Ripoti ya uvumbuzi duniani inaonyesha kuwa nchi za Afrika zipo mbali mno kwenye orodha hiyo, japokuwa Kenya, Rwanda, na Madagascar zimetajwa kama nchi zenye kuibukia kwenye uvumbuzi. Tanzania haitajwi katika kundi la nchi zinazoibukia katika kundi hilo na wakati huohuo tunataka kuingia uchumi wa kati. Kuingia uchumi wa kati inawezekana; hakuna jambo lolote lenyekufuata kanuni za kimantiki lisilowezekana hapa duniani. Hivyo Tanzania inaweza kuingia uchumi wa kati ifikapo 2025, hata hivyo ili jambo hilo liwezekane basi tunalazimika kufanya mambo mengi kuboresha mambo mengi yenye kuendesha uchumi wa nchi. 
Lazima tubadilishe mfumo wetu wa elimu ili elimu hiyo iwajengee watoto wetu uwezo mkubwa wa kufikiria, kutafakari mambo kwa kina na kutatua matatizo ya jamii. Elimu yetu iondokane kwenye kasumba tu ya cheti; tuwapime wahitimu wetu kwa uwezo wao kutatua matatizo ya jamii.

Tunalazimika kuboresha kwa kina hasa maisha na huduma mbalimbali za kijamii za watu wanaoishi vijijini; umasikini mkubwa Tanzania upo vijijini. Maisha vijijini hutegemea zaidi kilimo, kwahiyo basi tunalazimika kukiboresha kwa juhudi kubwa kilimo chetu. Kilimo kiongezewe thamani kwa kuanzisha viwanda vidogo vidogo vya kusindika mazao hayo. 

Yanaweza kufanyika mengi haya ni kwa uchache tu. Tukiboresha elimu na kuweza kuchochea uwezo wa fikra za watu wetu hapo tutakuwa tumefanikiwa....

Soma sasa kwa Kiingereza ripoti ya uvumbuzi duniani: 

Switzerland has held onto its title as the world’s most innovative economy in the latest Global Innovation Index.
The 2016 index, produced by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), Cornell University and INSEAD, assesses the innovation performance of 128 global economies. This year is notable for China’s breakthrough into the top 25. It marks the first time a middle-income country has taken a place among highly-developed economies in the survey’s 9-year history.

The top 10



 These are the world's most innovative countries

Switzerland claims the top spot as the world’s most innovative economy – a position it has held for six years. The European nation scores highly on a range of indices, from government effectiveness to business sophistication, and creative goods and services.
Sweden climbs one place to take second, swapping places with the United Kingdom. It scored highly on infrastructure, human capital and research.
An all-European top 3 is completed by the United Kingdom. Like Sweden, it scored highly for infrastructure, as well as market sophistication and creative outputs.

The rise of China

For the first time since the index started, China takes a place in the top 25, rising from 29th last year.
The report attributes this to improved performance, as well as methodological changes in the index. However, the authors highlight the continuing “innovation divide” between the developed and developing world. The majority of innovative activity is concentrated in high-income economies and a few middle-income economies, including China, India and South Africa.

However, there is good news, with several African economies named “innovation achievers”. They include countries like Kenya, Madagascar and Rwanda, and were found to perform at least “10% higher than their peers for their level of GDP”.

The importance of innovation

Innovation remains a key driver of economic growth, as highlighted by both the Global Innovation Index and the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report.
Innovation is one of the 12 pillars of competitiveness in the Forum’s report, and it looks set to play an ever more important role, says Margareta Drzeniek Hanouz, one of the economists behind the report.
“In the future, a country’s socio-economic progress will be increasingly determined by its ability to innovate and adapt quickly to new environments. Scientific and technological research and development, creativity, new business ideas and the ability to implement new business models will also increasingly determine a country’s success.”

Elie Wiesel, Dies at 87

Elie Wiesel, the prolific Nobel Peace Prize laureate whose memoir about surviving Nazi concentration camps was one of the most poignant accounts of the Holocaust, has died. He was 87.
Wiesel's son, Elisha Wiesel, told NBC News on Saturday that the author had died, and said the family is observing Shabbat and has requested privacy at the moment.
Wiesel was born in 1928 in Romania. At the age of 15 he was deported to Auschwitz with his family, where his mother and sister died. Wiesel and his father were later taken to Buchenwald. His sick and malnourished father died there following a beating from a German soldier. Wiesel chronicled the experience in his acclaimed 1955 autobiography, "Night."
The atrocities he witnessed fueled Wiesel to combat inhumanity around the world, including in the former Yugoslavia and in Darfur — efforts that in 1986, earned him a Nobel Peace Prize.
"We must speak, we must take sides, for neutrality helps the oppressor — never the victim," he said upon receiving the prize.
The prize's citation referred to him as "a messenger to mankind."
"My father raised his voice to presidents and prime ministers when he felt issues on the world stage demanded action," Elisha Wiesel said in a statement released later Saturday. "But those who knew him in private life had the pleasure of experiencing a gentle and devout man who was always interested in others, and whose quiet voice moved them to better themselves."
"I will hear that voice for the rest of my life, and hope and pray that I will continue to earn the unconditional love and trust he always showed me," Elisha Wiesel said.
Tributes for Wiesel immediately started pouring in Saturday, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calling him a "beacon of light to the humanity of people who believed in the good of everyone."
President Barack Obama said, "Elie Wiesel was one of the great moral voices of our time, and in many ways, the conscience of the world."
The World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder said in a statement that Wiesel "was more than a revered writer. He was also a teacher for many of us. He taught us about the horrors of Auschwitz. He taught us about Judaism, about Israel, and about not being silent in the face of injustice."
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, who a few months ago gave Wiesel the medal of Honorary Citizen of Jerusalem, said of the author: "Instead of giving in to despair, the face of evil and cruelty that at the time was the darkest of humanity, he carried all the way through the message of tolerance and peace for all peoples of the world."
Following the war, Wiesel was sent to a French orphanage, where he was reunited with his older sisters, Beatrice and Hilda. He first took up writing in his 20s, when he became a journalist for French and Israeli publications.
Despite later becoming a ubiquitous, first-hand account of surviving the Holocaust, "Night" sold under 2,000 copies in the United States in the first 18 months after it was published.
It has now sold more than 6 million copies, according to Israeli newspaperHaaretz, which first reported Wiesel's death.
Wiesel originally wrote "Night" in French and had it translated into English. The book was standard reading material in schools around the world and enjoyed renewed popularity when Oprah Winfrey chose a new translation of "Night" by Wiesel's wife, Austrian Holocaust survivor Marion Rose, for her book club in 2006.
Wiesel and Marion married in Jerusalem in 1969. She also translated his future books, including "Dawn" and "Day," which completed his trilogy series on the Holocaust. In all, he wrote more than 50 works of fiction and nonfiction.
Wiesel met his wife in New York, where he had moved to in 1955. Over the years, he became a vocal activist, earning him the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom in addition to the Nobel Peace Prize for speaking out against discrimination and racism.
Marion Wiesel said in a statement Saturday: "My husband was a fighter. He fought for the memory of the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust, and he fought for Israel. He waged countless battles for innocent victims regardless of ethnicity or creed."
"But what was most meaningful to him was teaching the innumerable students who attended his university classes," she said. "We are deeply moved by the outpouring of love and support we have already seen in the wake of his passing."
Wiesel became an outspoken advocate of education on the Holocaust when President Jimmy Carter appointed him chairman of the Presidential Commission on the Holocaust in 1978. In that role, he helped create the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
A quote from Wiesel — "for the dead and the living, we must bear witness" — is displayed at the museum's entrance.
Wiesel didn't shy away from his past. In 2006, he went to Auschwitz with Winfrey, and in 2009, Wiesel went with President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to a trip to the Buchenwald concentration camp.
His faith never wavered. At the Holocaust Days of Remembrance Ceremony in April 2009, standing alongside Obama in the Capitol Rotunda, Wiesel said, "I belong to a traumatized generation that felt abandoned by God and betrayed by mankind. And yet, I believe that one must not estrange from God or mankind.
Later in life, he made news for another reason: He was one of the victims of Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme. His foundation, the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity, lost more than $15 million it had invested with Madoff, and he and his wife lost savings.
When asked to describe Madoff, Wiesel told The New York Times, "Psychopath — it's too nice a word for him."
Obama said that he first came to know Wiesel through his account of the Holocaust, but "I was also honored and deeply humbled to call him a dear friend." The president recalled visiting Buchenwald with Wiesel, where the author was held as a teenager.
"At the end of our visit to Buchenwald, Elie said that after all that he and the other survivors had endured, 'we had the right to give up on humanity,'" Obama said. "But he said, 'we rejected that possibility ... we said, no, we must continue believing in a future.'"
"Tonight, we give thanks that Elie never gave up on humanity and on the progress that is possible when we treat one another with dignity and respect," Obama said.

De Caunes Sapeur
La société des ambianceurs et des personnes élégantes, ou SAPE, est une mode vestimentaire populaire née après les indépendances au Congo-Brazzaville pour ensuite se propager au Congo-Kinshasa chez les jeunes. Ce courant est dans la filiation du dandysme et ses adeptes, appelés les sapeurs s'habillent ainsi chez les grands couturiers, et pratiquent la sapologie.
......

Les dix commandements de la sapelogie

La philosophie de la sape s’accompagne de dix commandements fondamentaux, qui régissent leur comportement et résument leurs valeurs.
Premier commandement : Tu saperas sur terre avec les humains et au ciel avec ton Dieu créateur.
Deuxième commandement : Tu materas les ngayas (non connaisseurs), les nbéndés (ignorants), les tindongos (les parleurs sans but) sur terre, sous terre, en mer et dans les cieux.
Troisième commandement : Tu honoreras la sapelogie en tout lieu.
Quatrième commandement : Les voies de la sapelogie sont impénétrables à tout sapelogue ne connaissant pas la règle de trois, la trilogie des couleurs achevées et inachevées.
Cinquième commandement : Tu ne cèderas pas.
Sixième commandement : Tu adopteras une hygiène vestimentaire et corporelle très rigoureuse.
Septième commandement : Tu ne seras ni tribaliste, ni nationaliste, ni raciste, ni discriminatoire.

UBUNIFU KATIKA UCHEKESHAJI?

Ukosefu wa ajira unawafanya vijana kutazama vipaji vyao ili kujipatia kipato na kuendesha maisha yao. Vipaji ni muhimu mno katika furaha ya kweli na utimizaji wa ndoto maishani. Mifumo ya elimu yetu na malezi nyumbani vinapaswa kugundua vipaji vya vijana wangali wadogo na kuwaelekeza huko ili kwamba hata masomo yao yaendane na vipaji hivyo.

Mifumo yetu ya elimu ikifuata ugunduzi wa vipaji vya vijana wetu nadhani, kwa kiasi kikubwa tutaweza kupunguza kwa kiasi kikubwa sana ukosefu wa ajira. Inawezekana kwa kuwa kila mmoja wetu ana vipaji na uwezo ambao ukinguduliwa na kuendelezwa vizuri atakuwa mtaalaamu kupindukia katika eneo husika.
