TAARIFA KWA UMMA



TAARIFA KWA UMMA
Nimepokea kwa masikitiko makubwa sana taarifa ya kifo cha Akwilina  Bafhata Akwiline aliyekuwa mwanafunzi wa mwaka wa kwanza katika Chuo cha Usafirishaji (NIT).
Kifo hicho kimetokea wakati askari wakiwa wanadhibiti maandamano yaliyokuwa yakifanyika tarehe 16/02/2018 kwenye eneo la Mkwajuni Wilaya ya kinondoni, jijijini Dar es salaam.

Napenda kutumia fursa hii kutoa pole sana kwa Familia ya Ndugu,  jamaa na marafiki wote wa Akwilini.  Pia napenda kutoa pole kwa Uongozi na Jumuia ya Chuo cha Usafirishaji, wanafunzi wote nchini na wananchi wote kwa ujumla.

Ndugu Akwilini ni binti aliyekuwa anatambua na kuthamini umuhimu wa Elimu, na alijitoa kuhakikisha kuwa anasoma kwa bidii kwa manufaa yake binafsi, familia yake na kwa manufaa mapana ya taifa taifa.  Kifo chake kimetokea wakati akiwa kwenye kutekeleza wajibu wake kama mwanafunzi wa kupeleka barua mahali alipokuwa anatarajia kufanya mazoezi kwa vitendo yatakayoanza tarehe 27/02/2018. Kifo hicho cha kusikitisha kimezima ndoto yake Serikali ikekipokea kwa masikitiko makubwa sana. 

Mhe Rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania Dkt John Joseph Pombe Magufuli amesikitishwa  na kuhuzunishwa sana na kifo cha mwanafunzi Akwilini na anaungana na familia, ndugu jamaa na watanzania wote kuwapa pole za dhati kutokana na msiba huo. 
Serikali inatumia fedha nyingi kuwasomesha wanafunzi kuanzia Elimu msingi, sekondari na hutoa mikopo kwa wanafunzi wa Elimu ya juu kwa sababu tunatambua mchango wa Elimu katika maendeleo ya nchi yetu. Marehemu Akwilini alikuwa ni miongoni mwa wanufaika wa Mikopo ya wanafunzi wa elimu ya juu. 

Mimi  Waziri mwenye dhamana ya  sekta ya Elimu nimesikitika sana kuona binti huyo amepoteza maisha yake akiwa katika kutekeleza shughuli za kielimu.

Wizara yangu itagharamia shughuli zote za mazishi ya Marehemu Akwilina hadi hapo atakapopumzishwa katika makao yake ya milele. 
Namuagiza Katibu Mkuu Wizara ya Elimu Sayansi na Teknolojia Dk. Leonard Akwilapo kusimamia shughuli zote za msiba huo hadi  Akwilina atakapozikwa katika nyumba yake ya milele. 

Nitumie fursa hii kuviagiza vyombo vya ulinzi na usalama kuwafikisha mara moja wahusika waliosababisha kutokea kwa tukio hilo kwenye vyombo vya sheria ili  wachukuliwe hatua kwa mujibu wa sheria za nchi yetu.

Nawasihi sana watanzania wenzangu tujiepushe kukiuka tarataibu na miongozo inayokuwa inatolewa ikiwemo  maandamano na vitendo vyote ambavyo vinaweza kusababisha maafa kwa watu wasio na hatia.

Mungu aiweke roho ya Marehemu Akwilini mahala pema peponi Ameni

Imetolewa na:

Prof Joyce Lazaro Ndalichako

Dk. Akwilapo amesema utii, ushirikiano,bidii na upendo mahali pa kazi miongoni mwa watumishi ndiyo silaha pekee ya kufikia malengo ambayo Wizara imejiwekea katika kuinua Sekta ya Elimu hapa nchini.

TBA yatakiwa kulipa madeni ya wananchi katika ujenzi shule ya wavulana Ihungo


Waziri wa Elimu, Sayansi na Teknolojia Profesa Joyce Ndalichako amewataka wakala wa majengo nchini TBA kulipa madeni wanayodaiwa na Wananchi mbalimbali kufuatia ujenzi unaoendelea wa Shule ya Sekondari wavulana Ihungo iliyopo Wilayani bukoba mkoani kagera.

Waziri Ndalichako amesema kuwa tayari wizara imekwisha ilipa TBA  zaidi ya bilioni Tisa na garama ya ujenzi kwa mradi wote ni shilingi  bilioni 10 nukta 48.

" Mnyonge mnyongeni haki yake mpeni,  nipende kuwapongeza Wakala wa Majengo TBA kwa kazi nzuri ambayo wameifanya.

"Lakini nasikikitika sana kupokea malalamiko kutoka ofisi ya Mkuu wa mkoa inayoeleza kuwa bado kuna Wananchi wanaidai TBA kutokana na kutoa vifaa mbalimbali vya ujenzi kama vile mbao, matofali, na vibarua ambao wameshiriki katika ujenzi huo wa shule ya wavulana Ihungo na kuwa mpaka sasa hawajalipwa, hii haipendezi ni vyema TBA kuhakikisha inalipa madeni hayo,"alisema Waziri Ndalichako.

Waziri Ndalichako amesema haoni sababu kwa nini wananchi hawajalipwa wakati tayari Serikali imekwisha ilipa TBA, ni vyema wakalipwa ili kusaidia kuepusha migogiro isiyo ya lazima baina ya Serikali na wananchi.

Kwa upande wake Meneja wa TBA mkoa wa  Kagera Salum Chanzi amekiri kuwepo kwa sababu mbalimbali zilipelekea mradi kutokamilika kwa wakati na hivyo kuomba wapewe muda zaidi mpaka mwezi machi mwaka huu ili waweze kukamilisha.

"Mheshimiwa Waziri mradi huu haijakamilika kwa wakati uliokuwa umepangwa kutokana na changamoto ya kuagiza vifaa kutoka nje ya mji wa bukoba, na hii inatokana na bei wakati mwingine kuwa kubwa hapa bukoka  lakini nje ya hapa tunavipata kwa bro nafuu," alisema Chanzi.

Chanzi amemhakikishia Waziri Ndalichako kuwa tayari madeni yote wanayodaiwa na wananchi katika ujenzi huo wa Ihungo Sekondari yamewasilishwa kwenye Taasisi yake yanafanyiwa kazi na wahusika wote  watalipwa.

Katibu Mkuu Akwilapo asisitiza matumizi ya force akaunti kwa FDCs


Katibu Mkuu wa Wizara ya Elimu Sayansi na Teknolojia Dk. Leonard Akwilapo leo amefungua mafunzo yanayoelekeza matumizi ya Force Akaunti kwa Wakuu wa Vyuo vya  Maendeleo ya Jamii- FDCs mkoani Morogoro na kusisitiza kuwa utaratibu huo umekuwa na thamani ya matumizi ya fedha, (value for money).
Akizungumza na Wakuu wa Vyuo, Wakufunzi, Maafisa Ugavi na Wahasibu kutoka Vyuo hivyo Katibu Mkuu Akwilapo amesema lengo ni kuwajengea uelewa wa namna ya kusimamia ukarabati ili kuhakikisha Vyuo na Wizara kwa pamoja vinapata thamani ya matumizi ya fedha.

Dk. Akwilapo ameeleza kuwa Force Akaunti  ni utaratibu wa manunuzi ya huduma unaotambulika Serikalini na umekuwa ukitumia sehemu kubwa ya bajeti yake katika ununuzi wa vifaa mbalimbali inayotumika katika ujenzi.

Dk. Akwilapo amesema  lengo la kutumia utaratibu huo ni kupunguza gharama za ujenzi na ukarabati pamoja na kufanya utekelezaji wa mradi kukamilika kwa wakati, kukabiliana na  dharura zinazohitaji kuchukuliwa hatua za haraka pamoja na kuiwezesha taasisi husika kufanya kazi ya ujenzi na ukarabati kwenye taasisi yake pale ambapo ujenzi ni shughuli za kila siku katika Taasisi hiyo.

Ameongeza kuwa Wizara ilitumia wataalam wake katika ujenzi na ukarabati ambapo fedha iliyotumika kwa ajili ya kazi zilionekana kuwa kidogo.

 "Kwa majaribio force Akaunti ilitumika katika halmashauri 129 kujenga madarasa, mabweni, mabwalo, maabaara, Ofisi za walimu, nyumba za walimu  na umeonesha mafanikio makubwa  mahali ambapo kwa kutumia mkandarasi wastani wa shilingi bilioni 2 hadi 3 zingetumika ila kwa utaratibu wa Force Account Wizara imeweza kutumia shilingi milioni 800 hadi bilioni 1 tu".alisema Dk.Akwilapo.

Kwa upande wake mratibu wa mradi wa ESPJ Dk. Jonathan Mbwambo amewataka Washiriki wa mafunzo hayo kuzingatia mafunzo na pia kutumia fedha watakazopewa za ujenzi na ukarabati kama zilivyokusudiwa.

Kati ya vyuo 55 vya FDCs vyuo 20 vitakarabatiwa na kujengwa katika awamu hii ya kwanza ambapo upembuzi yakinifu unatarajiwa kuanza mapema wiki ijayo.
Mafunzo hayo yameratibiwa na mradi wa kukuza stadi za kazi na ajira, ESPJ.
