John Mnyika:Serikali itake Israel Waombe Radhi;Tukijiheshimu,Tutaheshimiwa

Kurugenzi ya Mambo ya Nje na Mahusiano ya Kimataifa ya CHADEMA inaitaka Serikali ya Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania kutoa tamko juu ya kauli ya Waziri wa Ulinzi wa Israel ya kwamba nchi yetu si ya muhimu wala ya maana.
Waziri Barak alifanya mahojiano na Radio Israel na kutoa kauli ambayo imenukuliwa na vyombo mbalimbali vya habari vya nchi hiyo wiki iliyopita kuwa “ Germany, France and England are not Tanzania, Mauritania or Tripolitania…..these are very important, very relevant countries and we don’t have an interest in increasing tensions with them or making them bitter enemies”.
Kwa kauli hii serikali ya Israel inaiona Tanzania sio nchi ya muhimu wala ya maana hata kufikia hatua ya kuilinganisha na eneo tu ndani ya Libya linaloitwa Tripolitania.
Tunamtaka Waziri wa Mambo ya Nje na Mahusiano ya Kimataifa, Benard Membe kuitaka serikali ya Israel kuomba radhi kufuatia kauli hiyo au kueleza wazi iwapo mazungumzo hayo ya Waziri Barak ni msimamo wa nchi hiyo kuhusu uhusiano wa kidiplomasia wa mataifa yetu.
Barua pekee ya balozi wa heshima wa Tanzania nchini Israel, Kasbian Nuriel Chirich kwenda kwa Waziri wa Mambo ya Nje wa Israel Avigdor Lieberman ya kulaani matamshi hayo ya Waziri Barak na kumkaribisha mwakilishi wa Israel kutembelea Tanzania haitoshi kuifanya serikali ya nchi hiyo kutambua athari za kidiplomasia za kauli iliyotolewa.
Aidha kwa kuwa serikali imekuwa ikieleza kwamba Tanzania ina mahusiano mazuri ya kiulinzi na Israel, ni muhimu pia Waziri wa Ulinzi na Jeshi la Kujenga Taifa, Dr Hussein Mwinyi akaeleza umma iwapo kauli hiyo ya Waziri Barak ndio msingi wa mahusiano yaliyopo kati ya nchi zetu kuhusu ulinzi na usalama.
Kurugenzi ya Mambo ya Nje na Mahusiano ya Kimataifa inachukua fursa hii kurudia kuwakumbusha watanzania kwamba kupuuzwa huku kwa nchi yetu katika medani ya kimataifa kunatokana na sera mbovu ya mambo ya nje chini ya utawala wa sasa wa Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM).
Tanzania imepoteza heshima katika siasa za dunia kutokana na diplomasia yetu kujikita katika kuomba omba kimataifa; pamoja na kuwa kimaneno na maandishi serikali inazungumza kuhusu diplomasia ya kiuchumi, kivitendo mahusiano yetu yamejengeka katika misingi ya utegemezi, kupungua kwa urari wa kibiashara na kuachia mianya ya uporwaji wa rasilimali.
Kurugenzi ya Mambo ya Nje na Mahusiano ya Kimataifa inatambua kwamba wakati wa uongozi wa awamu ya kwanza wa hayati Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, Tanzania ilikuwa na heshima na sauti kimataifa sio tu katika jitihada za ukombozi kusini mwa Afrika bali pia katika mahusiano ya kisiasa, kiuchumi na kijamii baina ya nchi za kusini na mataifa mengine duniani.
Hali ya Tanzania kupoteza sauti katika medani ya kimataifa imedhihirika pia hivi karibuni katika mkutano kuhusu mabadiliko ya tabia nchi (COP 17) uliomalizika hivi karibuni nchini Afrika Kusini; wakati nchi yetu ikiwa ni miongoni mwa waathirika wakubwa zaidi wa mabadiliko ya tabia nchi. Iwapo hatua hazitachukuliwa kurejesha heshima na sauti ya Tanzania kimataifa maamuzi mengi yatafanyika yenye athari kwa wananchi wengi bila ushiriki wao thabiti kama yanayoendelea hivi sasa kuhusu Mikataba ya Kiuchumi na Nchi za Jumuia ya Ulaya (EPA) yenye madhara kwa wakulima na wenye viwanda nchini.
Kurugenzi ya Mambo ya Nje na Mahusiano ya Kimataifa inatoa mwito kwa watanzania kuendelea kuunganisha nguvu ya umma kusimamia uwajibikaji na kufanya mabadiliko ya kimsingi ya kiuongozi, kisera na kimfumo ya kitaifa ili kuweza kurejesha nafasi na heshima ya Tanzania kimataifa katika mazingira ya sasa ya ushindani wa kiuchumi, kiulinzi, kijamii na kisiasa.
Kauli ya Waziri Barak nimuendelezo tu wa mataifa mbalimbali kuifanya Tanzania na baadhi ya nchi nyingine za Afrika kuwa hazina heshima wala sauti katika siasa za kimataifa kama ambavyo Serikali za Uingereza na Marekani zimeweka masharti yenye mwelekeo wa ukoloni mamboleo kuhusu masuala ya ushoga na usagaji.
Hatua za kupinga kauli za kudharauliwa na kulazimishwa mambo tusiyoyataka ziende sambamba na kudhibiti mianya yote ya ufisadi wa kimataifa, uwekezaji uchwara na kutetereka kwa misingi wa utawala wa kisheria masuala ambayo yanasababisha migogoro na pia rasilimali za nchi kutokutumika kwa manufaa ya wananchi walio wengi; tukijiheshimu, tutaheshimiwa.
Wenu katika Demokrasia na Maendeleo,
John Mnyika (Mb)
Mkurugenzi wa Mambo ya Nje na Mahusiano ya Kimataifa (CHADEMA)

How to impress a guy? There are so many ways, and for every guy, these things could be a little different. But there are a few things that are almost guaranteed to impress a guy, any guy. These are just a few of them, ones that I’ve had loads of success with, but feel free to use these as a springboard to get your own creative ideas. Without further ado, here they are, 10 tips on how to impress a guy. 1. Be honest Simply put, men don’t like liars, so if you’re wondering how to impress a guy, start with being honest. Don’t ever pretend to be something you’re not, or like something you don’t. 2. Be confident Guys like women who are confident, but not arrogant; convinced of their own worth, but not conceited. While this may seem like a fine line to walk, it’s not, and confidence is a trait guy often find attractive. 3. Be yourself! Just like being honest will impress a guy, being yourself, not putting on little acts, will make him happy, too. Who wants to date a phony, or find out later that the girl they’ve been dating isn’t who he thought she was? 4. Be secure in the bedroom You’re an adult. You know what you want in life, from a companion, and especially in the bedroom. Men aren’t mind-readers any more than we are, so why waste his time and yours with guesswork between the sheets? 5. Show your hidden talents If you can sing, sing! If you know Spanish, order your meal from Mexican Town in Spanish! If you can dance, shake your booty! Impress your man with your unique, hidden talent. He’ll be pleasantly surprised and you’ll get a chance to show off a little. 6. Keep financially stable No-one wants to be burdened with someone else’s financial irresponsibility, so impress your guy, and save yourself a lot of undue stress by keeping your financial ducks in a tidy row. 7. Ditch the frenemies This is one bit of drama men don’t understand, and certainly don’t like. If you have a frenemy, now’s the time to ditch the bitch and impress your guy. 8. Don’t be clingy There’s nothing wrong with showing your love and affection, but guys don’t like girls who are overly clingy. It screams of insecurity, something no-one but emotional predators find attractive. 9. Know a little about cars I’m not sure what it is with guys and their cars, but if you’re still wondering how to impress a guy, go for broke and educate yourself a little about cars, in particular, his favorite cars. Or if he’s into racing, or classic cars, show an interest in that, too. Don’t force yourself though. If you’re just not interested, he’ll be able to tell, and it won’t impress him — he’ll find it annoying. 10. Know a little about sports If there’s a sport you happen to love to watch or play, let your guy know! Chances are, he’ll think it’s incredibly sexy (especially if you wear a cute jersey to support your team) and it’s sure to impress him! My dears, I’ve tried every single one of these tips on how to impress a guy, and they all work with every kind of guy, the sports fans and the librarians alike. Which of these tips do you think you’ll try, and which are already in your own repertoire? Or do you have another tip to share? Please let me know!

"I have heard the false and laughable rumours that there's heavy pressure on me to marry. There's no iota of truth in that in that rumour or report. There's no pressure on me to settle down from any quarter, not even my parents or loved ones. At the appropriate time, I will marry like my brother and friend, Aki did. But what I don't like and will not accept is the rumour circulating that I'm under pressure to find a wife and settle down within the next couple of months. It's pure lies and fabrication from some unserious and jobless people. Yes, there is someone in my life right now, but I can't tell you the exact date we are getting married. It could be next year or the year after. Right now, we are happy being together." Osita Iheme responded when asked by EE if there was pressure on him to marry after his best bud got married a few weeks back.
