Zanzibar economy plunges into deflation

ZANZIBAR has registered deflation of - 0.2 per cent in March, from - 1.7 per cent in February, driven mainly by fall food and fuel prices. Deflation is a phenomenon that occurs when overall prices are declining to register a negative figure.

It is the opposite of the often-encountered inflation. Deflation, according to economists, occurs following reduction of money supply or credit availability.

The economists argue that it is often associated with reduced investment spending by government or individuals. “Deflation leads to a problem of increased unemployment due to drop in demand,” according to an economist.

The Bank of Tanzania (BoT) Monthly Economic Review of April says “month-to-month headline inflation was negative 0.2 per cent in March 2015 compared with negative 1.7 per cent in the preceding month”.

The central bank attributed the month-to-month deflation to food inflation which went down to negative 1.6 per cent in March compared with negative 0.1 percent.

Hayo yamejitokeza ndani ya siku nne baada ya uamuzi huo wa CCM kutangazwa mjini Dodoma na kuwafanya makada wake, kuanza kujitokeza hadharani wakiweka bayana tarehe za kutangaza nia hiyo.
WanaCCM waliojitokeza ni mtoto wa Baba wa Taifa, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, Makongoro Nyerere, Waziri wa Nchi, Ofisi ya Rais (Kazi Maalumu), Profesa Mark Mwandosya na Mbunge wa Kuteuliwa, Profesa Sospeter Muhongo ambao kwa nyakati tofauti wamethibitisha kuwa wanatangaza nia hiyo wiki ijayo.

Lipumba: Rais bora hawezi kutoka CCM

“CCM kimekosa mfumo wa uadilifu hivyo hakiwezi kutuletea kiongozi wa nchi, kwani hata akitokea mtu mwadilifu akashinda, atavurugwa.” Profesa Lipumba 
  • Profesa Lipumba asema mfumo wa chama hicho tawala hauruhusu uadilifu
Tabora. Siku kadhaa tangu Mwenyekiti wa Chama cha Mapinduzi (CCM), Rais Jakaya Kikwete kuwatahadharisha wajumbe wa Halmashauri Kuu (NEC), ya chama hicho kwamba wanapaswa kumteua mgombea wa urais anayekubalika ndani na nje ya chama hicho, Chama cha Wananchi (CUF), kimesema kauli hiyo haina ukweli.
Mwenyekiti wa CUF, Profesa Ibrahim Lipumba (pichani) amesema hakuna mtu anayefaa kuwa Rais ndani ya CCM, kwa kuwa mfumo wa chama hicho hauruhusu uadilifu.
Profesa Lipumba alisema hayo jana alipokuwa akihutubia wakazi wa Kijiji cha Kayombo wilayani Nzega.
Alisema  ndani ya CCM, kuna tatizo la kimfumo ambalo hata akitokea mtu mwadilifu akawa rais, bado atavurugwa na mfumo uliopo na kuwa fisadi.
“CCM kimekosa mfumo wa uadilifu hivyo hakiwezi kutuletea kiongozi wa nchi, kwani hata akitokea mtu mwadilifu akashinda, bado atavurugwa na mfumo huo wa kifisadi,” alisema Profesa Lipumba.
Sifa za Rais
Profesa Lipumba ambaye yuko mkoani Tabora kwa ziara ya kuhamasisha wananchi wajiandikishe kwenye Daftari la Kudumu la Wapigakura, alisema kwa hali ilivyo, Tanzania inahitaji Rais mwadilifu ambaye kimsingi, hawezi kutokea CCM.
