HALI ya Burundi imezidi kuwa tete huku makundi mawili hasimu ya wanajeshi, yamekuwa yakipigana, kila moja likitaka kutawala jiji la Bujumbura.

HALI ya Burundi imezidi kuwa tete huku makundi mawili hasimu ya wanajeshi, yamekuwa yakipigana, kila moja likitaka kutawala jiji la Bujumbura.
Mapigano hayo ni kati ya wanajeshi wanaomtii Rais Pierre Nkurunziza, ambao wanapambana na wanajeshi wanaompinga, ambao wanamuunga mkono mwanajeshi aliyetangaza mapinduzi, Meja Jenerali Godefroid Niyombare.
Ofisa Mwandamizi wa Jeshi nchini humo, alisema wanajeshi wanaomtii Rais Nkurunziza wamefanikiwa kudhibiti na kurejesha maeneo muhimu ya jiji hilo chini ya utawala wa Serikali, ukiwamo uwanja wa ndege.
Hata hivyo, viongozi wa wanajeshi wanaompinga Rais huyo, wameendelea kudai kuwa wameipindua Serikali ya nchi hiyo.
Hali ya machafuko nchini humo, ilianza baada ya kiongozi huyo kutangaza kuwa ana nia ya kuwania tena kipindi cha tatu cha urais, jambo ambalo wapinzani nchini humo wamedai ni kinyume cha Katiba.
Kwa mujibu wa mashuhuda nchini humo, milio ya risasi na mabomu imekuwa ikisikika usiku kucha kuanzia juzi katika mapigano baina ya vikosi vinavyomtii Rais na vile vinavyotaka mapinduzi, lakini hadi sasa haijafahamika nani aliyefanikiwa kulidhibiti jiji hilo.
“Hatujaweza kulala kutokana na hofu tuliyonayo, milio ya milipuko na risasi imekuwa ikisikika kila sehemu, watu anaogopa kwa kweli,” mmoja wa mashuhuda aliwaambia waandishi wa habari.
Kwa mujibu wa chanzo cha habari ndani ya kikosi kinachomtii Rais Nkurunziza, jeshi hilo limeweza kurejesha maeneo muhimu chini ya Serikali kama vile Ikulu, Redio na Televisheni ya Taifa na uwanja wa ndege.
Mitaa ya jiji hilo imejaa askari na polisi wanaomtii Rais na hadi majira ya jioni uwanja wa ndege, ulifunguliwa tayari kwa kutoa huduma za usafiri.
Hata hivyo, bado mapigano yanaendelea eneo ambapo televisheni na redio za taifa zipo, huku vikosi vinavyotaka mapinduzi vikijaribu kuingia ndani ya vituo hivyo vya habari.
Kila kikundi kinataka kudhibiti vituo hivyo vya utangazaji wa taifa, kwa kuwa ndio vyombo vya habari pekee vyenye uwezo wa kusikika hadi nje ya jiji hilo la Bujumbura.
Tayari Mkuu wa Majeshi na Rais Nkurunziza wametangaza na kudai kuwa jaribio la kupindua nchi hiyo, limeshindikana.
Hata hivyo, kauli hizo zimekuwa zikipingwa na viongozi wanaotaka mapinduzi nchini humo, na mmoja wao alisema kuwa wamefanikiwa kudhibiti takribani mji wote wa Bujumbura.
Msemaji wa kundi hilo la waasi, Venon Ndabaneze, alisema askari wanaotawanywa katika jiji hilo, wote wako upande unaotaka mapinduzi na si wanaomtii Rais Nkurunziza.
Juzi, Meja Jenerali Godefroid Niyombare, aliyekuwa Mkuu wa Usalama, alitangaza kumpindua Rais Nkurunziza akiwa na baadhi ya viongozi wa Serikali, hali iliyozua shangwe kwenye mitaa mbalimbali jijini humo.
Niyombare alifukuzwa kazi na Rais Nkurunzinza Februari mwaka huu. Majengo ya kituo cha binafsi cha Televisheni Renaisance ya Burundi, iliyotumiwa na Meja Jenerali Niyombare, yameripotiwa kuharibiwa vibaya usiku wa kuamkia jana.
Kwa mujibu wa Mkurugenzi wa Kituo hicho, Innocent Muhozi, moja ya ofisi zake ilichomwa moto usiku huo na kusababisha kila kilichokuwepo ndani kuteketea.
Jenerali Niyombare, alitoa tangazo hilo, saa chache tu baada ya Rais huyo kupanda ndege kwenda Dar es Salaam Tanzania kuhudhuria mkutano wa wakuu wa Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki, uliojadili suala hilo la Burundi.
Hata hivyo, iliripotiwa kuwa baada ya tangazo la kupinduliwa kwake, Nkurunziza, alirejea Burundi bila kuhudhuria mkutano huo, lakini alipofika Bujumbura alilazimika kurejea Dar es Salaam baada ya Uwanja wa Ndege wa Bujumbura kufungwa.
Habari zilizopatikana kutoka BBC baadaye jana jioni zilidai wanajeshi watano walikuwa wameuawa, silaha nzito zilikuwa zikitumika, mirindimo ya risasi ilisikika kila kona na waandamanaji walilazimika kujifungia ndani.
Ofisa Mwandamizi wa Usalama wa Taifa kutoka Ikulu ya Dar es Salaam, alipozungumza na AFP, alikiri kuwa Rais Nkurunziza bado yupo Tanzania, jijini Dar es Salaam, lakini haifahamiki ni sehemu gani alipo.
Nkurunzinza yuko wapi?
Suala sehemu alipo Rais Nkurunziza baada ya kufanyika jaribio la kumpindua nchini kwake, limeendelea kuwa tete baada ya Tanzania kusema haijui alipo.
Hatua hiyo imetokana na tetesi kuwa Rais huyo yupo nchini baada ya kuhudhuria mazungumzo ya kutafuta amani kwa marais wa nchi za Afrika Mashariki jijini Dar es Salaam na baadaye kutangazwa nchi hiyo kupinduliwa na kueleza kushindwa kurejea nchini mwake.
Waziri wa Mambo ya Nje na Ushirikiano wa Kimataifa, Bernard Membe alisema hayo jana alipozungumza na waandishi wa habari mara baada ya kufungua mkutano wa Baraza la Wafanyakazi wa wizara hiyo.
Awali , alipoulizwa alipo Rais huyo, alisema hawezi kujibu swali hilo lakini baadaye alisema hajui huku akiondoka na kucheka.
Membe alisema baada ya tamko la viongozi wa nchi za Afrika Mashariki, kulaani jaribio la kufanya mapinduzi katika nchi hiyo zaidi ya hayo Baraza la Mawaziri lililokutana kwa siku mbili Jumanne na Jumatano, litakutana tena Jumatatu wiki ijayo na kufanya tathmini ya hali halisi ya Burundi kwa siku tatu hizi mpaka Jumatatu.
“Kwa sasa sitaweza kuzungumza jambo jingine lolote kuanzia sasa mpaka Jumatatu jioni baada ya kikao cha baraza la mawaziri wenzangu, ambapo tutajua mambo ya kuzungumza.”
“Naomba kuwatahadharisha Watanzania kuwa hali ni tete Burundi lolote unalosema wewe na kudhani dogo linaweza kugharimu maisha ya mtu naomba mnielewe na mkae mkielewa haya mengine tutazungumza siku hiyo ya Jumatatu,” alisisitiza.
Alisema wananchi wa Burundi wako katika matatizo na vizuri kuvuta subira, badala ya kuendelea kuzungumza, kwani uhai wa mtu unaweza kuwa matatani.
Membe alipoulizwa alipo Rais wa Burundi, kwani inasemekana alirudi nchini Tanzania baada ya ndege yake kushindwa kutua nchini kwake , alisema yeye hajui.
Alisema hali ya Burundi ni tete na sababu hiyo, walikutana kutafuta ufumbuzi wa kudumu na wananchi waache kufanya ghasia na badala yake watulie na kuchagua viongozi wao kwa amani.
Alisema imeelezwa kuwa jaribio la jana la baadhi ya askari kutaka kuipindua Burundi, lililaaniwa na viongozi wote wa Afrika. Alisema Afrika haitaki nchi yoyote, kwa sababu zozote, kuhalalisha kuchukua madaraka kwa njia ya mtutu wa bunduki.
Wakimbizi wafa kwa kipindupinduKigoma
Wakati hali ya utawala nchini Burundi ikiwa tete , wakimbizi wa nchi hiyo waliopo mkoani Kigoma, wameanza kupatwa na majanga mengine baada ya kuripotiwa watu wanne kufa kwa ugonjwa wa kipindupindu.
Mganga Mkuu wa Mkoa wa Kigoma, Leonald Subi alisema mjini Kigoma kwamba watu wawili walikufa wakiwa tayari wanaumwa ugonjwa huo na kufariki hapa nchini.
Alisema watu wawili wengine, walipatwa na ugonjwa huo wakisubiri msaada wa kibinadamu katika kijiji cha Kagunga wilaya Kigoma, mwambao wa Kaskazini wa Ziwa Tanganyika.
Subi alisema kuwa kwa sasa hali ya upatikaji wa huduma za kibinadamu, ikiwemo chakula, maji, mahala pa kujihifadhi na huduma ya choo ni mbaya sana kutoka na idadi kubwa ya wakimbizi hao kuwepo kijijini hapo kwa kipindi kifupi na hivyo kijiji hicho kuzidiwa katika kuwapatia huduma watu hao. kwa maelezo zaid bofya hiyo link hapo chini

Rais Kikwete aongoza kumuaga Marehemu Komba Karimjee



RAIS Jakaya Kikwete jana ameongoza mamia ya wakazi wa Dar es Salaam waliojitokeza kuaga mwili wa Mbunge wa Mbinga Magharibi, Kapteni John Komba aliyefariki Jumamosi jioni katika Hospitali ya TMJ ikielezwa kuwa kaondoka kama moto wa kiberiti.
Tukio hilo lilifanyika jana Dar es Salaam katika viwanja vya Karimjee, na kuwakutanisha viongozi mbalimbali wa serikali wakiwemo Makamu wa Rais, Marais wastaafu akiwemo Benjamin Mkapa na Ali Hassan Mwinyi, mawaziri mbalimbali, manaibu mawaziri, viongozi wa vyama vya upinzani, mwanasheria mkuu, viongozi wa dini na wabunge.
Katika tukio hilo lililojaa simanzi na vilio vilitawala, huku baadhi ya nyimbo alizokuwa ameziimba marehemu, Kapteni Komba zikiimbwa na baadhi ya wasanii wakati wa kuaga.
Akizungumza katika tukio hilo, Mwenyekiti wa Kamati ya Bunge ya Maendeleo ya Jamii, Said Mtanda alisema msiba wa Kapteni Komba ni pigo lisilozibika kamwe na siku alipofariki alimpigia simu wakazungumza kwa saa nne kuhusu safari ya kamati hiyo kuelekea nchini Ethiopia kikazi.
Tulipanga mambo mengi yakiwemo namna tutakavyotekeleza majukumu na jinsi ya kwenda Ethiopia… wajumbe wa kamati ilikuwa waondoke Machi mosi…lakini saa kumi jioni nikapokea ujumbe kuwa Komba amefariki,” alisema Mtanda na kuongeza kuwa alikuwa amali na rasilimali kwa familia, Chama Cha Mapinduzi na hata kwa wananchi wake jimboni.
Alisema Kapteni Komba alisimamia haki za wazee na kwamba Kamati itaendelea kusimamia yote yaliyoasisiwa na Mbunge huyo wa Mbinga ambaye pia alikuwa Makamu Mwenyekiti wa kamati hiyo.
Kwa upande wake, Katibu Mkuu wa Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) Abdulrahman Kinana alisema Kapteni Komba alikuwa muimarishaji na mkuzaji wa CCM katika maeneo mbalimbali kwa kupitia nyimbo zake.
Wakati wa msiba wa Nyerere atakumbukwa kwa ujasiri wake na msimamo wake kwani alitunga nyimbo nyingi zenye kuwaliwaza Watanzania,”alisema Kinana na kuongeza kuwa vishindo pamoja na sauti yake vimezimika.
Alisema kifo chake kimeleta pengo kubwa kwa CCM, wasanii huku daima akikumbukwa kwani wakati wa uhai wake aligusa maisha ya walio wengi akiwa mwanajeshi, mwalimu, msanii na hata mwanasiasa.
Waziri wa Nchi Ofisi ya Waziri Mkuu Sera,Uratibu na Bunge, Jenista Mhagama alisema serikali itaendelea kutekeleza mipango ya Maendeleo iliyokuwa ikitekelezwa katika jimbo la Mbinga Magharibi kama ilivyokuwa imepangwa katika jimbo hilo.
Alisema Komba atakumbukwa kwa ucheshi, msimamo katika masuala mbalimbali pia mchango wake kupitia vipaji alivyokuwa navyo.
Spika wa Bunge, Anne Makinda alisema kifo cha Komba kaondoka na moto wa kiberiti, akiondoka na talanta zake, jambo linalosababisha wengi kutokuamini ambapo Mungu haachi kutoa mafundisho.
Alisema Kapteni Komba ilikuwa aende nchini Ethiopia na wenzake na kabla ya mauti kumkuta alikuwa akiandika nyimbo.
Kifo kitampata kila yeyote…angejua na kupewa hata muda kidogo angesema wale wote waliomkosea anaomba wamsamehe…na pia sisi tunapaswa kumsamehe,” alisema Makinda na kuongeza kuwa wakati mwingine watu hutumia midomo isivyo na ikumbukwe kuwa kila mmoja anatoka kwa Mungu.
Alisema Kapteni Komba alitekeleza wajibu wake kama binadamu na amekwenda kupeleka hesabu yake ya aliyoyafanya duniani huku CCM ikiamini kuwa Mungu atawapa Mbunge mwingine katika jimbo hilo.
Kiongozi wa Upinzani Bungeni, aliyewakilishwa na Mbunge wa Arumeru Mashariki Joshua Nassari alisema pamoja na itikadi zao bungeni lakini umoja wao ni nguzo kuu.
Alisema kifo ni safari ya kila mmoja, na kila binadamu anapaswa kutambua kuwa maisha ni mafupi na kujifunza kutenda mema kuanzia ngazi ya familia na hata kwa taifa.
Mweyekiti wa Taasisi ya Mwalimu Nyerere, Joseph Butiku alisema Kapteni Komba alikuwa na utendaji ulio bora alifanya hivyo bungeni akiwa na uwezo wa kusimanga viongozi bila kuwaudhi.
Alisema alikuwa mkweli akistahili kukumbukwa kwa uongozi alioutoa kupitia kipaji chake cha kuimba na baadaye katika Bunge na zaidi katika kusaidia CCM.

The 9 technologies companies will go nuts for In 2015.

 As 2014 draws to a close, it's time to examine the tech industry's trajectory and predict which trends will explode in the upcoming year.

Experts from market research firm Gartner, the IEEE Computer Society, MIT, and other sources have named the tech trends they thought were super hot for businesses in 2014 or are going to become hot in 2015.

We've sifted through that information, and have thrown in a few of our own picks to come up with this list of the nine technologies that companies will go nuts for in 2015.


1. 3D printing


Breakthroughs in 3D printing are coming in 2015, which will make this form of manufacturing attractive to nearly any business.

One such technology is something known "micro-scale 3D printing," according to MIT. This is where "inks" of different materials can be loaded into 3D printers, allowing them to print a huge range of objects.


 2. Wearable at work

In 2015, wearable computers will start to trickle into the workplace. Smartwatches will keep employees plugged in without constantly looking at their phones. Wearable health devices will encourage employees to participate in group wellness programmes.

Companies will also start experimenting with smart glasses with custom apps such as repair guides, video conferencing, training videos and the like.

HR software company Kronos and The Workforce Institute recently polled 9,000 people worldwide and found that 73% said they think wearables would be helpful at work.

3. Ultra-private devices

Computer security is entering a new phase. Passwords won't exactly die in 2015, but our devices will become more secure and private. More devices, including and beyond smartphones, will get fingerprint sensors.
 (A company called Nok Nok, for instance, offers technology that turns touchscreens and touch pads into fingerprint sensors.)
While hackers aren't going away, your work software will be wrapped in layers of security. So when a hacker breaks into one app, other apps will know it and guard themselves. The hacker will get limited info and won't get the data stored in other apps. "Every app needs to be self-aware and self-protecting," Gartner says.


4. Devops

IT departments used to work in phases. They wrote a new app on their test machines and only rolled it out to the real network when it was perfect, so it wouldn't crash things.

But IT departments want to be more like Facebook; they want to run experiments on their users by trying new features on their live networks and collect data on what those employees want. That lets them rapidly make changes.

This trend is called "Devops," which blends "development" and "operations" together. Devops requires IT departments to buy a lot of new technology and change the way they are organized so they can experiment without crashing things.

"More organizations will begin thinking, acting and building applications and infrastructure like web giants such as Amazon, Google and Facebook," writes Gartner. "The first step... should be Devops."


5. Software-defined data centers

Today, if a company wants to make a lot of changes to its network switches or storage devices after they are installed, it's a monumental task.

The new trend is to add a layer of software on top that controls everything. This allows them to easily make changes and shift things around.

New software-defined networks and storage, "deliver the flexibility required to make the digital business work," Gartner says.


6. Mobile identities

 
  Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has given the word "mobility" a new definition. It no longer means taking a tablet or smartphone with you as you roam. It means that your identity lives in the cloud and travels with you from device to device, network to network.
Microsoft is one of many companies working on this idea. It will create a new generation of work apps that not only keeps track of your place, but lets your colleagues collaborate with you. Gartner calls this "context-aware" applications.

7. Smart data

Everyone's already got a lot of data, sometimes called big data. The emphasis in 2015 will stop being on the means to affordably collect and store that data (using technologies like Hadoop, noSQL databases) and will shift to making better use of it once they've got it.

Companies are really struggling today to get that data into the hands of the people who need it most: business managers. What managers want is to be able to ask that data a simple question: "Why did sales fall short of expectations last month?"

They want the data to reply with charts, graphs, details of things that didn't sell well and reasons for the shortfall: shipment delays, weather, quality control issues, personnel changes, and so on.

That's a huge focus for startups and established software companies alike. Gartner calls this "Advanced, Pervasive and Invisible Analytics."

8. Smart machines

The industry is right now arguing over what to call the next generation of internet-enabled devices: "Internet of Things," "Internet of Everything," or "Web of Things."

But it's not about the internet at all. It's about giving sensors and chips to everyday objects and suddenly making them smart. It's also about giving intelligence to the apps we already use to make them even smarter.

For instance, your work apps will learn your work style to show you the data you need to see at the time you need to see it.

A smarter object "takes advantage of mobile devices' and sensors' ability to observe and monitor their environments, increasing the coordination between things in the real world and their counterparts on the web," the IEEE explains.


9. Cloud computing

For the past few years, enterprises have been slowly shifting away from buying software and hardware. They want to rent it from someone else, hosted elsewhere, paying only for what they actually use. This is known as cloud computing.

By the end of 2014, this trend has turned from a trickle to a stream. In 2015 it will become a waterfall.

IDC predicts that in 2014, companies will have spent $56.6 billion on the cloud, and that the cloud market is growing 22% a year, six times faster than the growth of the whole IT industry. By 2018, companies will be spending $127 billion on the cloud.
