Post of the dayWelcome to the Jenerali Ulimwengu blog

I heartily welcome you to this new blog, looking to contribute to the quality networking that new media have afforded us. In this space I intend to do pretty much what Iíve been doing elsewhere for a long time, that is look around, take stock of what is, or is not happening, try an analysis and voice opinion in order to stimulate debate and engage a conversation. A lot of the material in this space will be exploratory, in the sense that I will seek to know, because it is obvious that there is much that I still need to learn, and everyone participating in this blog will, to me, be a teacher. Whenever what I contribute is deemed useful, I will be only too happy to share with others. Learning has always been a two-way, often multiple-way process. But I shall attempt to make it not too boring. Even as we gather knowledge, form opinions and sharpen our debating skills, we can also have moments of enjoyment wherein we laugh at things, others and ourselves and thoroughly enjoy life. In

Post of the dayHivi waendesha pikipiki hawahusiki na sheria za barabarani?

Nimekuwa nikiangalia jinsi waendesha pikipiki, ambao wanabeba abiria mjini wanavyofanya makosa barabarani na trafiki wanawaangalia tu. Hii ina maana kwamba bodaboda hawa usiku na sheri a za barabarani? Tayari nimeshudhudia ajali mbili ailizosababishwa na watu hawa. Nadhani wakati umefika wa kuwaambia polisi wa trafiki kuwachukulia bodaboda kama watumiaji wengine wa barabara na siyo kundi mahsusi linaloruhusiwa kufanya litakavyo.

Post of the dayBuriani Julius Kambarage Nyerere

MWALIMU Julius Kambarage Nyerere amefariki. Baba kaondoka. Jua limekuchwa. Mbuyu mkuu uliotanda katikati ya kijiji umenyauka. Zama zimefikia tamati. Watanzania ni yatima. Ilani ilitolewa kwa muda wa kutosha. Wiki kadhaa za mateso ya maradhi ya Mwalimu katika Hospitali ya Mtakatifu Tomaso, mjini London, ingetakiwa iwe ni taarifa ya mapema ili watu wake wajiandae kwa lolote ambalo lingetokea. Kwa hakika taarifa za siku za mwisho zilionyesha wazi kwamba hakuwa mgonjwa wa kupona. Hata hivyo, tangazo rasmi la kifo chake limeweza kuwashitua Watanzania, kama vile lilikuwa jambo lisilotarajiwa. Hali hii inaelezeka kwa utambuzi wa uhusiano maalumu kati ya Mwalimu na Watanzania, ambao walikataa kulizoea wazo la kifo chake. Hadi jana asubuhi (Oktoba 14, 1999) wengi waliamini kwamba hata pale sayansi ya juu ilipokomea bado muujiza ungetokea na baba yao akainuka kitandani na kupanda ndege kurejea nchini. Haiwezekani kuwalaumu hata wale walioshawishika kuegemea hisia za ushiri

Post of the dayKenyatta land

Every time I hear Uhuru Kenyatta or his acolytes say that debate on land issues is too emotive and would be divisive I ask myself if they are serious. Of course, land issues are emotive and they can divide societies precisely because land is a key factor in the lives of many African societies, and I do not have to go into the economic, socio-spiritual considerations surrounding land. However to suggest that issues pertaining to land should not be debated because of the above is nonsense. How can anyone have a debate about Kenya's politics without touching on such an important topic, seeing as it occupies such a central position in that country's history, struggles and tribulations? Even the proverbial elephant in the room don't begin. Uhuru may have personal problems regarding the matter since his family is routinely accused of having acquired huge tracts of land, fairly or otherwise, and that this has given the Kenyattas immense wealth that they can now leverage to
