Nyendo na Habari za Usafiri Tanzania | Tanzanian Transportation News

Nadhani tunaweza kuongea kuhusu namna za usafiri nchini Tanzania. Tunaweza kuweka habari zinazotufahamisha mengi kuhusu maendeleo ya mfumo wa usafiri kama reli, ndege au namna za barabara pia.

SHIRIKA la Ndege la Precision (Precision Air) limesema limejiandaa kuongeza njia za safari zake Kanda ya Ziwa ambayo ni Mikoa ya Mwanza,Shinyanga na Kigoma ili kupunguza kero kwa wateja na wasafiri wa maeneo hayo.

Mkurugenzi wa shirika hilo, Alfonse Kioko alisema hayo jana alipotembelea Kampuni ya Mwananchi Communications Limited (MCL) Inayochapisha magazeti ya Mwananchi, , The Citizen na Mwanaspoti ambapo alifanya mazungumzo na Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa MCL, Sam Shollei.

Kioko alisema shirika hilo limejipanga kuhakikisha linatoa huduma bora nchini katika mikoa mbalimbali ambayo miundombinu ya usafiri ipo.Alisema shirika hilo limejipanga kumaliza kilio cha wananchi wenye matatizo ya usafiri.
“Unajua kwa sasa tumejipanga vizuri, baada ya muda mfupi matatizo ya usafiri Kanda ya Ziwa yataisha kabisa kupitia Precision Air , hasa Mikoa ya Mwanza, Shinyanga na Kigoma na kituo kikuu kitakuwa Mwanza,”alisema Kioko.

Alisema hata usafiri wa kutoka Mwanza kwenda Nairobi na kutoka Dar es Salaam kwenda Comoro utaimarishwa zaidi na kwamba huduma zitaanza kutolewa mwezi ujao kwa bei nafuu.Aidha aliipongeza Kampuni ya MCL kwa kuchapisha habari zenye kuielimisha jamii na kwamba gazeti la Mwananchi na The Citizen ni magazeti anayoyapenda kutokana na ubora wake.

“ Magazeti yanayochapishwa na kampuni hii ni makini sana na yanaaminika, kwahiyo nawapongeza kwa jitihada hizo, endeleeni kuielimisha jamii,”alisema Kioko.

Awali, Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa MCL, Shollei alisema pamoja na changamoto zinazoikabili kampuni yake kama ile ya kutishiwa kufungiwa, lakini imeendelea kufanya kazi kwa kuzingatia maadili ya uandishi wa habari.

Alisema kuwa kwa kawaida kampuni ina sera yake ambayo ndiyo inawaongoza kutekeleza majukumu yao na sio kwamba kila mtu anafanya anavyotaka.

Naye Mhariri Mtendaji wa Mwananchi, Dennis Msacky alitoa wito kwa Precision kutumia magazeti ya MCL kujitangaza kwa kuwa yanaongoza kwa ubora na kusomwa na watu wengi nchini.“Gazeti la Mwananchi limeshika asilimia 50 ya soko, hivyo kampuni yenu ina fursa nzuri zaidi ya kujitangaza kwa kuwafikia watu wengi,” alisema Msacky

TRL, ATCL, marine transport get 95bn/- boost

The government has increased the ministry of transport’s budget by 95bn/- following criticism by Members of Parliament that the earlier budget was not enough to address problems facing its sectors.

The MPS had threatened to block the budget amounting to 237,563,802,000/-, saying endorsing it would be lying to themselves and wananchi because it was not adequate to address critical problems facing the sector.

Announcing the government decision to increase the budget by 95bn/-, Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda said the money will be channeled to the central railway line, Air Tanzania Company and marine transport (ships in lakes Victoria, Tanganyika and Nyasa).

He said following the limited budget allocated to the ministry, the government met on Wednesday to look into the possibility of increasing it from different sources.

“The government meeting was crucial so that it could discuss all the concerns raised by members of parliament in the House,” he said.

He said after the parliamentary committee for infrastructure went through the budget estimates for the ministry it advised the government to raise 95bn/- from different sources, for the budget.

Pinda said the transport sector needed major investments for construction of railways, ports and airports. He said such investment was also needed for purchase and maintenance of aircrafts, railway engines, wagons and vessels.

“These demands could not be met by the budget set aside for the ministry …this ministry like others, is faced with the problem of limited budget,” Pinda said.

He said despite the increase, the budget was still not enough to meet the ministry’s needs.

“This is the first budget for the ministry. The sector has been given priority in the five-year strategic development plan, so the government will continue to give it priority in the coming budgets,” Pinda said.

He called upon all ministries to use the money allocated in the budget for the intended purposes.

Tabling the budget estimates for his ministry on Wednesday Transport Minister Omar Nundu asked the parliament to endorse 237,563,802,000/- for the financial year 2011/12 out of which 69,585,672,000/- was for recurrent expenditures with 167,978,130,000/- being for development projects.

Development projects involve 95bn/- which would come from the government and 72,978,130,000/- from development partners.

Commenting on the illegal privatisation of Dar es Salaam Transport Company (UDA) the Premier said that the government has directed the Controller and Auditor General, Director of Criminal Investigations and the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau to conduct thorough and speedy investigations and submit a report to the government.

“The government will take appropriate measures according to the law against all those who will be found to have been involved in sabotaging UDA,” Pinda said.

On Wednesday Members of Parliament unleashed a barrage of criticism on the 2011/12 Ministry of Transport budget, saying it had failed to address problems facing its sectors.

They said that the budget lacked national interest and should be returned to the government for changes so that to meet expectations.

The citied ATCL, TRL and Kilimanjaro Airport Authority saying they were causing losses to the nation for failing to operate efficiently.

historic how? give an account of its past...you can't compare this to old Forodhani Hotel building that sea front (all the way to railway station including City Council, Old Boma House, Zanzibar Ferry station, St Joseph, Post Office, Karimjee Building, Azania Front, NBS Building, those old Tanzania courts and state house) has to remain intact...with the exception of those Utumishi buildings...the Antiquities Act protects them also mapato house along Samora Avenue, Ocean Road Hospital, Botanic Garden, Karimjee hall, Nation Museums (both two), Askari Monument, oysterbay Open space, Mnazi Mmoja and Jangwani Grounds and so many others! Visit European Modern cities to see what i mean! when you get time try to visit Bundes parliament building in Berlin to see how they managed to use their skills and modernize the old building that was demolished by WWII to the standards of today! You will love the buildings i tell you...

Dar, Kigali to speed up rail project

Dar es Salaam. The governments of Tanzania and Rwanda have agreed to closely monitor and speed up the process to start the construction of the railway line between the two countries to strengthen bilateral cooperation.

In an exclusive interview with The Citizen on Wednesday, the Rwandan minister for Foreign Affairs, Ms Louise Mushikiwabo, said the two countries have committed themselves to ensuring that the construction work starts mid-next year and be completed within five years as scheduled.

The construction of the railway line to link Dar es Salaam and Kigali is expected to cost at least $5.3 billion or about Sh7.9 trillion.The agreement was among the outcomes of a meeting between Ms Mushikiwabo and her Tanzanian counterpart, Mr Bernard Membe.

Ms Mushikiwabo was on a visit to Tanzania aimed at cementing good relations as part of strategies to promote East African Community on issues of free movement of people among the countries.

The railway line would be a very important economic infrastructure link between the two countries, she said. “The railway will be a means of transporting people and goods as Rwanda is landlocked,” she said.

What are the criteria used to classify historic buildings?

I believe most of the building projects constructed during 60's or before that have some stories to tell including Magomeni quarters etc...

Holland House have been standing there since 60's if that does not mean anything to you it will mean something to your kids or grand kids...

I am a constant traveller, bringing Europe into the picture only Rome can truly claim to be protecting its past history...

get the antiqueties Act of 1976 to see what it stipulates but for sure historic building does not mean "one constructed during 60's or before that has some stories to tell including Magomeni quarters etc.", that`s cheapen the Act! they have to have a rich history in them
