Zenawi is well and good says government spokesman
Contrary to internet opinions and media speculations, Ethiopia's Prime Minister Meles Zenawi is 'getting better'.This is according to Ethiopia's Government spokesman. There were rumors that Mr. Zenawi had died long before the speculations of his death erupted. The long time dictator who rules Ethiopia with an iron fist, and with little basic freedom, is said to be suffering from blood cancer. Will he resurrect from the internet assassination? Well time will tell.

Manchester na Arsenal: Tunamtaka Victor Wanyama, Simba na Yanga tunamtaka Mrisho Ngasa!


Ngasa dhidi ya Manchester United
Nicodemus Minde
Kocha wa zamani wa Brazil Dunga aliwahi kumfananisha Mrisho Ngasa na Robinho. Ngasa ni moja kati ya wachezaji bora Tanzania imewahi kujivunia kwa miaka ya hivi karibuni. Ngasa anapiga chenga, anakasi hatari, anaujuzi wa mpira, anafurahisha jukwaa kwa chenga za maudhi. Licha ya ufupi na umbo dogo, Ngasa anauwezo mkubwa. Sikushangaa Dunga akimsifia. Makocha wengi wamemsifia. Ni wazi vilabu vikubwa vya Brazil vilikua vilimtaka winga huyu hatari baada ya kumsumbua beki nguli Lucio, Brazil ilivyocheza na Tanzania kabla ya michuano ya Kombe la Dunia 2010. Giofranco Zola naye alimuita Ngasa afanye majaribio Westham. Seattle Sounders ya Marekani nayo ilimuita afanye majaribio. Nakumbuka vizuri tarehe 20 Julai 2011 mechi kati ya Seattle Sounders dhidi ya Manchester United. Ngasa aliingia kwenye dakika kumi na tano za mwisho. Aliisumbua Manchester na hususan Rafael. Jamaa alipongezwa sana. Kwenye mashindano ya Challenge jijini Nairobi, Ngasa aliibuka mfungaji bora wa michuano hiyo. Ngasa alikua mhimili mkubwa wa timu ya taifa katika mashindano mengi. 

Kwa sifa hizi kedekede, Mrisho Ngasa alinyakuliwa na matajiri wa Azam FC. Sawa, nilielewa ni ajira na maslahi yaliyompeleka Ngasa Azam akitokea Yanga. Alicheza vizuri na timu yake ya Azam licha ya kelele za hapa na pale eti yeye bado ni Yanga damu. Juzi hapa, timu yake ya Azam ilifika kwenye fainali ya michuano ya CECAFA ya Kombe la Kagame. Ngasa amekua akitumiwa sana kama mchezaji wa akiba na kocha Stewart Hall. Naskia jambo hilo halijamfurahisha Ngasa. Yanga iliifunga Azam 2-0 kwenye fainali hiyo. Picha za Ngasa akiibusu beji ya Yanga zilitapakaa kwenye mitandao na magazeti. Azam, kwenye ukurasa wao wa Facebook walitangaza kutoa nafasi ya upendeleo kwa Yanga kwa madai kuonyesha nia ya kurudi klabu yake ya zamani. Magazeti ya Tanzania yanaripoti kwamba Simba pia wanamtaka Ngasa.

Ngasa akibusu jezi ya Yanga
Katika upekuzi wangu wa magazeti ya Uingereza, nimevutiwa na habari ya Victor Mugubi Wanyama, kiongo wa Celtic ya Scotland kuhitajiwa na vilabu vikubwa vya Uingereza. Manchester United na City zinamtaka huyu kijana ambaye ni mdogo wake kiungo wa zamani wa Inter Milan MacDonald Mariga. Arsenal pia wanamuangalia huyu yosso. Nilikaa nikajiuliza hivi huyu Wanyama ananini ambacho Ngasa hana, labda umbo kubwa tu. Labda ana bahati tu!. La hasha, huyu kijana anajituma. Anajua kiwango chake ni cha Ulaya. Mpira wake sasa ni wa ligi kubwa kama za Uingereza, la Liga, n.k. Sijui Ngasa anajua hili?

Kama tunavyosema Tanzania: Yangu macho tu! Simba wamehaidi kutoa Tshs. 25m, Yanga wanataka kutoa Tshs.20m. Celtic wanasema Wanyama anathamani ya pauni 7m. Kwa hela zetu hapa ni Tshs. 17.5b. Sawa bwana.

Iranophobia: US, Israel ratcheting up Iranophobia campaign


Via PressTV
Dr. Ismail Salami, a political analyst says the US and Israel have embarked on an Iranophobia campaign to justify their illegal threats and sanctions against the Islamic Republic. Haggai Ram another scholar who is an Israeli explored prevalent Israeli assumptions about Iran in a book titles Iranophobia published in 2009. He looks at how these assumptions have, in turn, reflected and shaped Jewish Israeli identity.

Ismail Salami notes that the US, with the help of its allies including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel, is determined to brainwash the world’s public opinion into believing that Iran is seeking to build nuclear weapons and portray Tehran as a danger to the global security.  
I think Iran is been negatively portrayed by Western mainstream media.The Western world have gone on a relentless drive to demean the image of Iran and claim it is a pariah state that tolerates terrorists.

Is Meles Zenawi Dead?

Ethiopia's long time Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has been critically ill. He actually missed the recent AU summit in Addis Ababa for the first time since he ousted Mengistu Haile Mariam from power in 1991. Various social media sites have announced his passing. The harsh tag #RIPMelesZenawi is now circulating on twitter. However, there remains any official confirmation of his death. Ethiopians are not allowed to talk about his death as it will be interpreted as treason. The Daily Telegraph reports that Mr Zenawi is thought to be receiving treatment for an unspecified condition at the Saint Luc University Hospital in Brussels. The hospital is a centre for the treatment of blood or "haematological" cancers. The paper goes on to report that he may not survive. Zenawi has ruled Ethiopia with an iron fist and the country is termed as a police state. Analysts are pondering on his possible successor.

Mwanariadha Mchina, Daktari Mtanzania: Yupi Bora?

Nicodemus Minde

Kati ya mambo muhimu katika dunia kwasasa ni michezo. Juzi hapa tumeshuhudia ufunguzi mkali wa Michezo ya Olympic pale jijini London. Zilikua sherehe za kufana na zinazothibitisha michezo kama mhimili wa uchumi. Siku ya pili tu kwenye mashindano haya, tumeshuhudia msichana mdogo wakichina Ye Shiwen mwenye umri wa miaka 16 akivunja rekodi ya dunia kwenye mashindano ya kuogelea ya Medley. Magazeti mengi ya dunia na blog nyingi za kispoti zilijazwa na taarifa ya msichana mdogo akivunja rekodi ya dunia na kuiletea nchi yake dhahabu. Msichana huyo ambaye anatoka katika mkoa wa pwani mashariki wa  Zhejiang alichukua muda wa 4:28.43 kushinda. MV Bukoba ilivyokua inazama mwaka wa Mei 1996, msichana huyu alikua hajazaliwa. Tanzania, kwa wakati huo ilikua inatimiza miaka 35 ya uhuru. Mwaka huo pia Tanzania ilipeleka kikosi cha wanariadha kwenye Olympic ya mwaka 1996 kule Atlanta. Tulitoka kapa. Mara ya mwisho kwa Tanzania kushinda medali ilikua mwaka wa 1980 kule Moscow ambapo wanariadha Filbert Bayi na Suleiman Nyambui walishinda medali za fedha kwenye riadha.

Tathmini yangu ni kwamba Taifa letu limeamua kutotilia maanani umuhimu wa michezo. Licha ya hilo, wazazi wetu wanazingatia mno suala la elimu huku wakidharau michezo. Utamsikia mzazi akimwambia mwanaye "Soma kwa bidii uwe daktari" ama "Achana na upumbavu wa kuota kuwa muogeleaji, kwani umekua samaki?" Hapo ndipo wengi tunakosea. Michezo kwa wenzetu wa Ulaya umekua kama ajira. Michezo imejenga uchumi wa mataifa mengi. Leo hii, Tanzania tunaweka kipau mbele mambo mengi yasiyo na msingi. Huyu msichana wa Kichina na umri wake mdogo, amejishindia medali, maelfu ya dola, umaarufu, na maofa kibao. Akirudi kwao China, kampuni nyingi za vinywaji baridi vitamfuata wakitaka auze bidhaa zao. Utamuona kwenye matangazo mengi kwenye runinga zenu, kwenye magezeti na hata kwenye mitandao. Sisemi kusomea udaktari ama uhandisi ni vibaya. Ni wakati muafaka kwa Tanzania kuanza kufukiria swala la kupanua wigo la uchumi wake. Sio kuzingatia tu kazi za ofisini. 

Tanzania bila michezo haiwezekani!
