Zanzibar Law Society demands investigation into prisoners held on mainland


    The Zanzibar Law Society (ZLS) has called for investigations into the Tanzanian government's alleged abuse of Zanzibari suspects charged with terrorism, Tanzania's Daily News reported Thursday (August 28th).

    Said argued that the extradition of Zanzibaris to mainland Tanzania violates the islands' laws, and that they should be returned to Zanzibar and tried there.
    "These are serious allegations against law enforcers and they have not been refuted since the claims were put forward," ZLS President Awadhi Ali Said said at a press conference in Zanzibar. "This tarnishes the image of the police and the state, [and] we want allegations investigated."
    "We have written letters to Zanzibar Minister for Constitution and Legal Affairs, Zanzibar Attorney General and the Zanzibar Director of Public Prosecution, asking them to form an independent probe team [to look] into this controversy," Said said.
    For his part, Berious Nyasebwa, legal adviser at the Tanzanian Ministry of Internal Affairs, said the prisoners' detention in Dar es Salaam was legal since their alleged crimes were committed on the mainland.
    "For the offences committed in Zanzibar, they will be brought to Zanzibar and charged," he said. For all other suspects accused of committing crimes elsewhere, they will be charged on the mainland, he added.

Barua ya Muwaza kwa Mh Rais Kikwete: kuhusu udhalilishaji wa viongozi wa kidini walio mahabusu


                                                                                                          27/08/2014

YAH: MADAI YA UDHALILISHAJI WANAOFANYIWA VIONGOZI WA DINI WALIOWEKWA MAHABUSU
Kwa heshima tafadhali husika na mada ya hapo juu.
Wananchi wengi ndani na nje ya nchi kwa kupitia vyombo vya habari vinavyoaminika nchini Tanzania wamepokea kwa mshtuko mkubwa sana habari za kuhuzunisha kuhusu madhila na vitendo vya kishenzi vya udhalilishaji walivyofanyiwa Watuhumiwa wa Kesi ya Ugaidi waliokamatwa usiku wa manane nchini Zanzibar na vyombo vyako vya Dola na kuonekana baadae wakipandishwa kwenye Mahakama ya Kisutu iliyopo nchini Tanganyika. Watuhumiwa wakiwemo Masheikh wakubwa wenye kuheshimika katika Jamii walilalamika Mahakamani kwamba walifanyiwa mateso makubwa na vitendo vya kuwadhalilisha vinavyokwenda kinyume na Haki za Binaadamu kama kuwanajisi na kuwatia majiti na chupa kwenye sehemu zao za siri za nyuma.
 Jumuiya yetu imeshtushwa sana kuona katika karne hii ya ishirini na moja chini ya Uongozi wako, Serikali yako inaweza kuwatendea Wananchi wake vitendo kama hivi vya udhalilishaji. Tanzania imekuwa ikijinata kuendeshwa kwa kufuata utawala wa sheria na kuheshimu haki za Binaadamu, lakini kadhia ya Masheikh na matukio ya udhalilishaji waliofanyiwa yametuthibitishia kinyume chake. Jumuiya yetu na wapenda haki wote sio tu tumeshtushwa na matendo ya kinyama ya vikosi vyako lakini pia tumefadhaishwa na utaratibu mzima uliotumika kuwakamata watu usiku usiku nchini Zanzibar kwa tuhuma za ugaidi na kuja kuwafanyiwa mateso na kuwafunguliwa kesi nchini Tanganyika. Hali hii inaonyesha dhahir shahir jinsi Tanganyika kila kukicha inavyozidi kuidhibiti na kuzikandamiza Mamlaka za nchi ya Zanzibar. Tumeona kwa mfano, Watu waliokamatwa Arusha kwa tuhuma za kuhusika na vitendo vya kigaidi, mashtaka yao yalifanyika mjini Arusha, lakini wale waliokamatwa nchini Zanzibar wamefunguliwa mashtaka Dar Es Salaam, nchini Tanganyika, ilhali Zanzibar ina Mahakama zenye uwezo wa kusikiliza kesi kama hiyo waliyoshtakiwa Watuhumiwa. 

Jumuiya ya MUWAZA imewahi kulalamika kwako mara kadhaa juu ya namna ya vyombo vya dola vya Tanzania vinavyovunja haki za Binaadamu na kuitia dosari nchi lakini tunaona hali inaendelea kuwa vile vile au tunathubutu kusema inaongezeka kuwa mbaya zaidi. 

Ikumbukwe, kwamba kwa mujibu wa sheria ya nchi Mtuhumiwa yeyote huwa hana makosa hadi pale Mahakama itakapothibitisha kwa ushahidi wa kutosha na kumtia hatiani.  Hata hivyo, Serikali na Vyombo vyake vya Dola haina haki kwa njia yoyote ile kutumia vitendo vya utesaji na udhalilishajikwa Wananchi wake. Kwahivyo, Mtuhumiwa/Mwananchi yoyote anatakiwa Utu wake uheshimiwe kwa namna zote maana Utu wa kila Mtanzania haugawiki na ni adhimu .  Kumnyima Mtanzania yeyote Utu wake ni kulinyima Taifa Utu wake na kulidhalilisha mbele ya macho ya Walimwengu. 
Kwa mantiki hiyo Jumuiya ya MUWAZA inakuomba kuliingilia kati suala hili kwa haraka na kuwachukulia hatua wale wote walioshiriki vitendo hivi viovu vya udhalilishaji vyenye kuvunja haki za Binaadamu. 

MUWAZA inatarajia barua hii utaipa mashirikiano makubwa.

Mgawanyo wa fedha Bara, Zanzibar waibua mvutano

Mgawanyo wa fedha za Muungano kati ya Tanzania Bara na Zanzibar umekuwa moto mkali, baada ya kuendelea kuleta mvutano mkali katika suala hilo ambalo ni moja ya mambo yanayoutikisa muungano.

Hali hiyo ilijidhihirisha wazi kwa mara nyingine jana wakati wa semina maalum iliyoandaliwa na Bunge Maalum la Katiba kwa wajumbe wa Bunge hilo.

Semina hiyo ambayo watoa mada wakuu walikuwa, Gavana wa Benki Kuu ya Taanzania (BoT), Prof. Benno Ndulu, na makatibu wakuu wa Wizara ya Fedha, Dk. Servacius Likwelile upande wa wa Tanzania Bara na Khamis Mussa, upande wa Zanzibar, iliitishwa ili kutoa ufafanuzi kwa wajumbe wa Bunge hilo ambao wamekuwa katika sintofahamu kubwa juu ya suala hilo wakati wa mijadala kwenye kamati zao kiasi cha kutofikia mwafaka.

Kesi ya ugaidi haijavunja Katiba ya Zanzibar

Zanzibar- Mahakama Kuu ya Zanzibar imesema mashtaka ya ugaidi yanaweza kufunguliwa katika mahakama yoyote baina ya pande mbili za Muungano wa Tanganyika na Zanzibar kama ilivyotokea kwa Wazanzibari 14 waliokamatwa Zanzibar na kufunguliwa mashtaka yao Tanzania Bara.
Akitoa uamuzi katika kesi ya maombi iliyofunguliwa dhidi ya viongozi wa Polisi Zanzibar na washtakiwa hao 14 wanaopinga kukamatwa Zanzibar na kufunguliwa mashtaka Tanzania Bara, Jaji wa Mahakama Kuu ya Zanzibar, Mkusa Isaac Sepetu alisema hakuna sheria wala Katiba iliyovunjwa.
Jaji Sepetu alisema baada ya kusikiliza hoja za pande zote mbili, Mahakama Kuu imejiridhisha kuwa Sheria ya Ugaidi Namba 2 ya mwaka 2002, iliyotumika kuwafungulia mashtaka inatoa uwezo wa kukamata na kufungua mashtaka katika eneo lolote la Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania.
Jaji Sepetu alisema ombi la Wazanzibari hao la kuitaka Mahakakama Kuu ya Zanzibar itoe amri kwa Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Kisutu kuwaachia huru watuhumiwa hao ni sawa na kuingilia uhuru wa mahakama nyingine iliyopo katika upande mmoja wa Muungano ambayo inatakiwa ifanye kazi bila ya kuingiliwa na upande mwingine.

Tanzania takes a chunk of Kenya tourism pie after terror attacks

 Tanzania expects tourist numbers to double to 2 million by 2017, the state tourist board said, challenging regional rival Kenya where Islamist attacks have scared away visitors.
Tanzania, famed for its pristine beaches and safari parks beneath snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, has always played second-fiddle to Kenya, which has a more developed tourism industry and better air links to the key markets in Europe and United States.
But a surge in visitors to Tanzania in the past two years has chipped away at Kenya's dominance and helped Tanzania's ambitions to become a regional tourist hub.
"We expect to reach 2 million tourist arrivals by 2017," Devota Mdachi, acting managing director of the Tanzania Tourism Board (TTB), told Reuters in an interview.
"With more international airlines flying into Tanzania ... improved infrastructure, increased tourism investments and marketing, we can reach that target."
Tanzania's tourist arrivals rose 1.7 percent in 2013 to 1.095 million, earning the country $1.85 billion. In 2012, arrivals surged 24 percent as the country hit the 1 million-mark for the first time. Visitors mostly come from Britain, Germany, the United States and Italy.
Next door, Kenya's industry has struggled.
