    Blantyre
    - Malawi vowed on Tuesday to press on with oil and gas exploration on Lake Malawi, dismissing a demand by Tanzania, which claims half of the lake, to halt prospecting.

    "We categorically put it to them [Tanzania] that as far as we are concerned, the entire lake belongs to Malawi," Patrick Kabambe, principal secretary in the ministry of foreign affairs, said in a statement.

    "So our view is that there is no reason to stop the project," he added.

    Tanzania has claimed that 50% of the lake which forms its border with Malawi is part of its territory.

    Tanzanian Foreign Minister Benard Membe last week told domestic media that "exploration activities in the northeast part of the lake should be shelved to pave way for the ongoing discussions to resolve the crisis".

    Malawi, a former British colony, and Tanzania, once ruled by Germany, are due to hold talks on the disputed border in the northern Malawian town of Mzuzu on 20 August.

    Kabambe cited an 1890 agreement between the former colonial powers that stipulates the border between the two countries as lying along the Tanzanian shore of the waters of Lake Malawi.

    "Our terms are very clear on this, but we will continue to engage with Tanzania as a good neighbour," Kabambe said.

    Mozambique also owns part of the lake.

    In September last year, the government of Malawi's late president Bingu wa Mutharika awarded a British firm, Surestream Petroleum, a licence to prospect for oil and gas on the giant lake.

    The company has been conducting an environmental impact assessment.

    The 29 600 square kilometre lake is Africa's third-largest freshwater lake. In Tanzania, the lake is called Lake Nyasa, which is taken from Malawi's colonial name.

    Kiburi cha Malawi kinatoka hapo kwenye red. Waingereza ni wahuni sana, wako upande wa Tanzania at the same time wanawapa kiburi Malawi especially kipindi hiki ambacho Malawi wana matatizo ya fedha watanfaya chochote ili mradi mdomo uelekee kinywani.

    Kuna jambo moja inabidi serikali iwe makini sana, ukanda wa kusini una makampuni ya ulinzi toka nje ya nchi na wana silaha kubwa! Hichi kitu kiliongelewa bungeni lakini hakuna majibu ya maana. Uingereza wana tabia ya kutumia 'meceenaries', kwa nje inaonekana serikali haihusiki lakini ukweli hao hao mecenaries wanakuwa na link na serikali.

    Kwa jinsi tulivyokuwa WALAFI mkoloni wala hatukumbushi hiyo reference point (mipaka ya 1890) tunaikumbuka wenyewe tunapoanza kugombania ulaji........Bahati mbaya na rasilimali tunazogombea (mafuta na gesi) wala havijatunufaisha; na inawezekana tusijenufaika navyo kutokana na staili yetu ya kuwaachia wawekezaji wajitwalie tuu vyote nasisi kubaki na makombo.

    Air defence ya wamalawi inasimamiwa na wayahudi na mwaka huu january wamefunga military radar km kama 2 hv jirani na boda ya kalonga na walipitisha ndege za kivita maeneo ya Lituhi hadi Manda mwezi wa 2 tu hapo, wachunguzi wa mambo wanadai Malawi wamekuwa wanajiandaa kufanya vita na Tanzania kwa miaka zaidi ya 20 kwa kufanya yafuatayo

    1. Wamemodernize jeshi lao hasa la anga kwa kuingia ubia na israel
    2. Wamenunua tokea marekani boti za kivita 14 ambazo zinafanya patrol ziwa nyasa 24/7!
    3. Wamefunga vituo vipya vya radar

    Jamaa wanadai endapo Malawi watasonga kwa miguu basi entry position yao itakuwa mbeya hasa eneo la wilaya ya Ileje kutokana na hali ya milima ambayo inawapa unafuu wao.

    Pia Malawi wameanza kudai kwa nguvu hilo ziwa sasa kukujua kuwa Tanzania inatatizo la viongozi wa ngazi za juu na pili Tz inataabika na matatizo yake ya ndani kama migomo, uchumi na miundombinu na siasa na mwisho ni migongano ya viongozi wakuu jeshini, polisi, tiss na serikalini

    My Take:
    Tanzania ya leo sio ya kuombea vita coz askari wetu, tiss na polis wapo kwa miaka mingi kuzuia vyama vya upinzani, kupiga wazenji, ma-dr na kupiga kwata pale taifa wamejisahau kufanya mambo yao ya msingi kwa muda mrefu msishangae jk akakimbilia uarabuni akatuacha wanyasa watunyoshe kama anakimbia migomo sembuse vita!

    Ngoja nikamtoe bibi yangu Tukuyu

    Vinaovyomilikiwa na Mineral Owners na Majeshi yao na Viwanja vyao Vidogo Vya Ndege kubeba hizo Mali direct out of the

    country nasikia madini ya kutengeneza rangi; na pia ya simu - cellphone yanapatikana Congo-Kinsasha tu... Lakini

    Yaani inashangaza sana jinsi viongozi wa kiafrika wanavyoheshimu maamuzi ya wakoloni ya karne ya 19 zaidi ya uwezo wao wa akili wa kufanya maamuzi sahihi karne ya 21!

    Hawa Malawi kama wanadhani watatoka kwa mradi wa mafuta basi wajiandae kuishi kama wakimbizi kwa sababu chokochoko yao itatulazimisha kuwachapa.

    Imenikumbusha miaka ya nyuma rais Banda wa Malawi wakati huo alileta choko choko mpakani wakati huo tulikuwa na viongozi full of patriotism. Alipigwa mkwara wa kijeshi ndani ya juma moja akasalimu amri. Ndiyo chanzo cha zile nyimbo tulikuwa tunaimba kwenye mchaka mchaka shuleni:

    KIONGOZI
    :
    "Wamalawi watuvalia,
    Watuvalia ngozi ya simba,
    Kututishia watanznia, hatujali, hatujali!"

    TUNAITIKIA:
    "Bandaaaa wa Malawi,
    Atuvalia ngozi ya simba,
    Kututishia watanzania,
    Hatujali, hatujali!"



    Those old good days!
