    Headlines / Tanzania |


    By In2EastAfrica Reporter


    Malawi has expressed willingness to resume talks with Tanzania to resolve a protracted territorial dispute concerning the border in Lake Nyasa, a senior official with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation said.



    President Banda also claimed that there was alleged intimidation of Malawian fishermen on the lake. "We are pleased that Malawi authorities have decided to go back to the negotiation table," the official said.
    Last week, Malawi
    announced that it was pulling out of discussions on its border conflict with Tanzania. Malawi President Joyce Banda announced that the development came after Tanzaniarecently published a new map marking the boundary between the two countries in the middle of Lake Nyasa.

    He said the Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, Mr
    Bernard Membe and his Malawian counterpart, Mr Ephreim Mganda Chiume, have been on consultations on resumption of the talks.


    "Talks are likely to resume from October 27, this year," the officials said, but declined to be named and give more details. Mr Membe said earlier this week, the recently published map was aimed at showing new administrative areas in
    Tanzania following creation of new regions and districts, dismissing claims that it was meant to provoke Malawi or derail the talks.


    On alleged intimidation of fishermen, the foreign affairs ministry officials said there was a crackdown on illegal fishing activities on the lake recently and seven people, including two from Malawi were arrested for violating regulations. He said these people were using banned fishnets contrary to regulations. "This is not the case of intimidation, it is violation of regulations," he said.


    A year ago, former Malawi President Bingu Wa Mutharika, awarded oil exploration licences to UK-based Surestream Petroleum to search for oil in Lake Malawi (known as Lake Nyasa in Tanzania). In July, Mr Membe asked Surestream Petroleum to postpone any planned drilling on the lake.


    Lake Malawi contains more than 2,000 different fish species, attracting scuba divers and environmentalists are concerned that oil exploration will disturb its freshwater ecosystem. Malawi claims it owns the whole of Lake Nyasa on the basis of a 1890 treaty between former colonial powers Britain and Germany which, it says, was later reaffirmed by the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) when the country gained its independence in the early 1960s.


    But President
    Jakaya Kikwete said earlier this month that the Anglo-Germany Treaty that gave Malawi sole ownership of the whole lake was flawed and Tanzania had every reason to demand a review.

    Waache kuvimbisha kichwa hawa wamalawi wanatakiwa kujua kuwa kamwe TZ haitakubali kuliachia ziwa lote, afrika nzima inajua na dunia nzima inalijua hilo. Tatizo kuna wa TZ humu nao wameisha anza kupoteza matumaini na kuogoma kiulaini sana, sijui niwaiteje, waoga au?? kuna mtu alidiriki kusema kuwa tunang'ang'ania hili ziwa litatusaidia nini, eti kwa sababu tuna lakes nyingi na bado hamna maendeleo, au Kisa yeye yupo Dar au Mza au Kigoma au Iringa na hajui watu wa mbamba bay na maeneo ya huko nyasa bay wanategemea sana kiuchumi ziwa lile. Shame on all TZ who are againgst Membe and his team in this saga!

    Slowly and bit by bit we see compromising of these initiatives. If Malawi is being backed by US and British as supposedly asserted, then Tanzania will definitely tend to be neutral on these talks as somehow the two allies fund Tanzania in different issues of the economy.

    The way I see it, in most cases, there are at least several disputes going on in the world and the two aforementioned super powers seem to have their hands every where. So far the flames of World War 3 are on, and soon enough its bound to happen. Very imminent.
    My two cents.

    Red = lakini violence huzaa mzunguko wa violence hata vipite vizazi na vizazi. mtu wa tatu anahitajika kusaidia kutoa suluhu. meza ya watu wawili itafanya kazi kama hao wawili kwanza kila mmoja anakili umiliki wa pamoja wa ziwa na suala libakie ni kwa kiasi gani umiliki uwe. sambamba na uendelezaji na uvunaji wa pamoja wa raslimali zilizomo ziwani.
