Professa Issa Shivji ametoa mawazo yake juu ya kisa cha Zitto Kabwe na ulinzi wa maliasili yetu. Mjengwa ameshaitangaza kwake. Soma, fikiria, utafaidi….

The suspension of Honourable Zitto Kabwe from parliament is not simply an episode. It is a beginning of an epitath on the last twenty years of reckless privatisation and exploitation of national wealth and resources. The suspension was an occasion for the people to give vent to their accumulated grievances, problems, and frustrations.

Two decades of neo-liberal reforms has produced a deeply divided society and an utterly fractured politics. At one pole, there is a small group of filthy rich (walalaheri), who have used all means, fair and foul, to accumulate wealth. At the other pole, are the large majority of the wretched poor (walalahoi), who are desperately trying to keep body and soul together. Under Mwalimu, the ratio between the highest and the lowest wage/salary income earners was something like 1 to 8. The current one is 1 to 50, and that is an underestimate because it does not take into account unofficial, informal, and unaccounted incomes. (more…)

Juzi  juzi, nilishtushwa na Mwandani. Alitufahamisha kuhusu uwekezaji wa Anglican Church ya Uingereza kwenye kampuni mbili za China ambazo wapo bize kufaidi mafuta pale Sudan. Bonyeza hapa, Mwandani akuelezee vizuri zaidi. Alitupa changamoto nzuri ya kutafakari kabla ya kutoa sadaka kanisani. Tukiwekeza Sudan, je, tunasaidia Janjaweed pale Darfur?

Leo, nilishtuka zaidi. Nilikuwa kusoma The Citizen ya leo – (haipatikani kwenye mtandao – Aga Khan, unasubiri nini?). The Citizen ni gazeti ambalo lipo chini ya Mwananchi Communications. Nilisoma mambo haya yafuatayo:

 Tanzania and Sudan yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that aims to strengthen business ties between them. 

The MoU was signed in Dar es Salaam by Tanzania’s Board of External Trade (BET) director General, Mr. Ramadhan Khalfan, and the technical and administration affairs manager of the Sudanese Free Zones and Markets Company, Mr. Abdi Hamid. …………. Initiators say, the MoU will help create business linkages among business enterprises in the two countries. “It will help generate new trade opportunities, investment flows, networking, exchange of information and organising training programmes,” said Mr. Khalfan.
