IN SUMMARY
  • The 84-year-old former first lady says in a rare news conference that those responsible should face the full force of the law

Dar es Salaam. 
Mwalimu Nyerere’s widow, Mama Maria Nyerere, yesterday urged Parliament to exhaustively debate the Tegeta escrow account  scandal.
The 84 year-old former first lady told journalists at her home in Msasani, Dar es Salaam, that those responsible for the scam should be made to face the full force of the law.
She said the only way to get to the bottom of the matter was for MPs to discuss it without fear or favour.
“This escrow controversy is complicated….I have been asking myself what the consequences will be if the matter is not discussed comprehensively in Parliament. It will definitely create problems,” Mama Maria Nyerere said.
She added that impunity would reach unprecedented levels if the matter would be swept under the carpet instead of being discussed openly and honestly and appropriate action taken against those responsible.

Passengers in Russia’s Arctic push-start plane

(AP) / 26 November 2014

The plane due to fly from the Artic town of Ingarka on Tuesday to Krasnoyarsk got stuck when its chassis brakes got frozen. 


In other countries, you may be asked to give a push to a car stuck in the mud. In Russia, passengers in the Arctic came out of an airliner to the bitter cold to help it move to the runway.
  
Passengers are pushing their jet plane in Russia. Because of hard minus - 50 C airplane`s tyres frozen to the ground and people push it to fly. Siberia. Krasnoyarsk.
Russian prosecutors said a Tu-134 due to fly from the Artic town of Ingarka on Tuesday to Krasnoyarsk, nearly 1,300 kilometres to the south, got stuck when its chassis brakes got frozen. It was -52 degrees Celsius outside and the passengers, most of whom are likely to be oil workers, seemed desperate to get home.
An amateur video posted online showed several dozen men pushing the plane by leaning on both wings until it moved.
The prosecutors launched a probe into a possible breach of safety regulations.

Garlic, broccoli may speed up cancer recovery

Garlic, broccoli may speed up cancer recovery
(IANS) / 26 November 2014

Melanoma, prostate cancer and certain types of leukaemia weaken the body by over-activating the natural immune system. 



London: Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have found that selenium - naturally found in garlic and broccoli - slows down immune over-response, improving treatment against cancers such as melanoma and prostate cancer.
 Melanoma, prostate cancer and certain types of leukaemia weaken the body by over-activating the natural immune system.
 The immune system is designed to remove things not normally found in the body.
 However, different cancer cells contain mechanisms that block the immune system’s ability to recognise them - allowing them to freely continue cancer development.

IN SUMMARY
  • WHAT STATUS QUO MEANS:  Status quo generally refers to the existing state of affairs or circumstances. A status quo order may be issued by a judge to prevent any of the parties involved in a dispute from taking any action until the matter can be resolved. It seeks to prevent harm or preserve the existing conditions, so that a party’s position isn’t prejudiced in the meantime until a resolution is reached.
Dar es Salaam. Independent Power Tanzania Limited (IPTL) and Pan African Power Solutions (PAP), the key parties in the Sh306 billion Tegeta escrow scandal, yesterday obtained High Court protection on the eve of debate on the Controller and Auditor General’s report on the scam.
However, Mr Mussa Azzan said last night when chairing a parliamentary session that the House had not received any directive from any authority, adding that the report would be tabled today as planned.
He spoke after Mr Tundu Lissu (Singida East-Chadema) had sought clarification on the High Court’s decision.
IPTL and PAP lawyers rushed to court in the afternoon in a last-ditch attempt  to seek the court’s protection against any anticipated action or unforeseen directives by Parliament on their property and themselves.
