    Mengi faces editors on 100bn/- damages




    Thirteen editors and reporters are taking IPP Executive Chairman Reginald Mengi to court next week demanding a total of 100bn/- in damages for his malicious allegations against them and their newspapers. The damage includes 50bn/- for five newspapers and another 50bn/- for 13 editors and writers of the newspapers.

    At a press conference in Dar es Salaam today, the spokesman for the 13 editors and writers, Mr Prince Bagenda, said that the decision to sue Mr Mengi was reached after some of Mr Mengi’s newspapers carried malicious reports against them.

    According to Mr Bagenda, the tabloids spoiling for cash in damage claims include Taifa Tanzania, Umma Tanzania, Sauti Huru, Tazama and Nyundo - which claim to have been derided by some newspapers owned by Mr Mengi – on grounds that they were being used by some major corrupt figures in the country to publish defamatory stories against Mengi.

    The editors and writers threatening to file charges against the businessman are Mr Julius Mapunda, Prince Bagenda, Erick Antony, Salum Mnette, Charles Charles, Albert Kawogo and Christopher Buke. Others are Anthony Maono, Charles Mhando, Bollen Ngetti, Zahaq Raship, Saleh Ally and one Kimwanga, whose name has since been struck off the list, according to Bagenda.

    They are all charging Mr Mengi of allegedly calling their newspapers mere fliers, financed by grand corrupt tycoons, and that the owners, editors and reporters of those newspapers were just as corrupt. “We are legally registered … how can Mengi call our papers mere fliers? This is clear defamation,” Mr Bagenda said.

    He pointed fingers to some of the newspapers owned by Mr Mengi that wrote defamatory stories on them as Kulikoni and Nipashe which wrote in different issues last year and early this year that some corrupt figures in the country had established media outlets to destroy Mengi.

    “That is ridiculous … how did he categorize what he calls corrupt people when none of them have been implicated as corrupt elements in any judicial establishment … we want him to prove that,” he said. Mr Bagenda also defended the so-called errant tabloids, saying they were working to disclose some corrupt elements in the private sectors unlike some of the media outlets that were merely pointing fingers at corruption within the public sectors only.

    He said it was unfair to think the most corrupt organs and people were just those within the public sectors – arguing that the private sector was also ‘rotten’. “We want Mengi to be fair and use his media to also fight corporate corruption which is also notorious in private sector,” he said. Bagenda, who is the Chairman of the Taifa Tanzania Editorial Board, also accused Mr Mengi of attempting to ‘kill’ young and upcoming media outlets in a bid to consolidate his hold in the country’s media industry.

    He asserted that Mr Mengi was unwittingly painting a bad image of the country and, in effect, chasing away development partners and potential investors. The 13 editors and writers will next week instruct their lawyer to press Mengi to pay the damages. Along with Mr Mengi, the editors and writers are also charging Mr Michael Ngalo of Ngalo & Company for defamatory statements at a press conference last month.

    Nilishawahi kuandika huko nyuma hakuna kosa la ufisadi kisheria! Huwezi kumshtaki mtu kwa kufanya ufisadi! So, hakuna mahakama inayoweza kuitisha ushahidi wa kosa la ufisadi!

    Mimi niko uk sijawahi kumsikia mtu amelipwa £50m or $80m, na huku kuna gazeti linaitwa news of the world linauza copy 3.5m KILA JUMAPILI. Kuna jamaa alisingiziwa ameua aliipwa £550,000 kama bilioni 1 ya tanzania.

    Sasa hiyo 100 bilioni watai justfy vipi maana yake maisha yao yote hawawezi pata hiyo hela hata wakifanya nini

    hata tajiri yao rostam hana hiyo hela

    inaonekana rostam anawalipa watu wengi sana ili kupambana na kina mengi na mwakyembe

    Mie nimekuwa nikijiuliza sana,nimekuwa nikifuatilia san mambo mengi yanaiyoendelea Nchini,Hasa yanayohusu wafanyabiashara na siasa na mpaka sasa sijawahi kiuelewa ugomvi wa Mengi na baadhi ya watu na vikundi unatokana na nini?Nia yake ni ipi?

    Wanaojua naomba mtueleezee baaungwana sababbu imeshakuwa kero an nimekasirishwa sana ogomvi wa kitoto kati yake na mtikila.

    Mara anakihujumu chama cha Mapinduzi,mara kuna kikundi cha watu wamekutana?

    Hii vita ya Ufisadi inaweza ikawa ina jambo nyuma yake

    Je ni vita juu ya ufidai au kune mengine zaidi?

    I don't know Mengi at personal level; but ITV; make him present in my life anyways. At begging, in 2007, I could tolerate his presence on the media. However, of recent, for unknown reason whenever Mengi is on, I turn my TV to another channel… I am not sure why! Maybe his media strategy has over represented him! Maybe there is no logical of cases his following, which make it impossible for me to appreciate his value. Thus far, I don't understand six things of Mengi!

    a) First, I am not sure weather he want to be in politics on not.
    b) Second, I am not sure if he is on humanitarian mission or missionary mission
    c) Third, I don't know weather he want to be symbolic entrepreneur or symbolic speaker! Of what, I am not sure!
    d) Fourth, I am never sure weather he is serious concerned on the matter he stand for, or it is simple a public speech.
    e) Fifth, when he speaks I am not sure weather he is speaking to the international community or Tanzania people
    e) Six, I am not sure if what he speaks is delivered from his own brain or he uses advisor.

    Since, I am not sure of the above; I find it very difficult to understand his interest on ufisadi, weather he acts for his egoistic interests, business gains, or sincerely patriotic causes. I am not sure!

    A colleague of mine, beside me critiques me, saying I am biased toward Mengi, as he defines him as a man of people, supporter of communities and an example to follow in media and entrepreneur business. I give him respect for that and I am saying what a person! But I feel I would like to know more about this individual, what his central agenda on Ufisadi! If he is for really!

    For me, i think i might appreciate him more, if he provide one hour on ITV each day for citizens to speak their cases to their leaders from now to the election time! To create something, like community court on TV where leaders of – government and parliamentary- can be on hard talk and hotlines questioned on their leadership or citizen speak of their issues on their constituency!

    911,

    Thanks kwa kumweleza ukweli gembe anaye someshwa na fisadi(bado hajakana) ngoja niweke hapa nini alisema katika hizo link ulizo weka hapo juu ili iwe rahisi kwa watu kuunganisha chuki yake kuprove kuwa ukifadhiliwa na fisadi kweli lazima tu umchukie mengi.

    Mengi anachukia mafisadi
    Mafisadi wanamsomesha gembe
    Gembe atamchukia mengi ( hii itatokea automatic kama ulivyokili)

    Sasa soma maneno ya gembe hapo chini kutoka kwenye kinywa chake

    "Ndiyo mana huwa simpendi Mengi na nitasimamia hapo hapo...Mzee huyu anajidai ni msaada kwa watanzania ila hana chochote" na hiyo nyingine unasema "Inaezekana Mengi akawa hana kosa ila Mie Personally simpendi Mengi.Hivyo ndivyo nilivyo"

    Gembe ushindwe na ulegee tuachie Mengi wetu bwana

    Mkuu Mwanakijiji,
    Wee Umeamua kugeuza tu kwa manufaa yako binafsi na mapenzi yako binafsi kwa Mengi au?

    We are talking about reality and this is exactly truth that people need to know.Inawezekana vipi mtu mmoja awe na ugomvi na watu zaidi ya kumi na kila mtu atatumia Meadia yake kupambana nao.

    kwa ulivyogeuza inaonesha kuwa tayara yeye ni threat kwa kila mtu na siku zote inakuwa ni kwenye maslahi.

    anyways for thos who have said nasomeshwa na FISADI,kusomeshwa na fisadi or what haikusaidia wewe binafsi na inanisaidia mimi ,so keep queit!

    wewe uliyefika hapo unajuaje hata hiyo pesa uliyopewa na baba yako kipindi kile ilipatikana katika mazingira ya kifisadi au la.

    Yaani mtu ukisema jambo la mtu ambaye anajionesha anapigania ufisadi basi wewe unaonekana FISADI?Period this things will take us pahala pabaya sana

    Nimesoma yote yalioandikwa hadi sasa -- lakini mimi nasema hivi: Ni bora nchi hii ikawa na akina Mengi elfu moja kuliko, kwa mfano akina-Rostam watano , au akina-Manji kumi. Nina maana wengi wa hao anaopambana nao hawatufai katika jamii -- michango yao mikubwa ya mapesa (wanaotuibia sisi wananchi) wanaipeleka CCM.

    Sijasikia kwa mfano, Manji kasaidia kupeleka wagonjwa wa moyo nje kwa matibabu, kuwasaidia walemavu, au vikundi visivyojiweza n.k. hawa ni CCM tu piga ua, garagaza, -- na sababu kubwa inaeleweka, kupata mwanya wa kuwaibia wananchi zaidi na zaidi.

    Na katika orodha hiyo ya watu wanaopambana na Mengi na kuendelezwa humu JF -- tukiachia akina Manji, Rostam, Lowassa, Karamagi, Masha n.k. wengi wengineo ni makuwadi wa mafisadi tu, watu wanaojaribu kila namna (kwa malipo of course) kutetea ufisadi katika ku-spin hoja na mada. Mimi sioni kingine wanachofanya. wanajaribu kuivuruga lengo na mwenendo mzima wa vita dhidi ya ufisadi.

    Mimi naweza kusema hivi: Listi hiyo yote haina maana kwani item inayotakiwa iwemo ni moja tu: MENGI vs MAFISADI (na wapambe wao). Basi!

    Kuingiza mengine ni sawasawa na kujaribu kupotosha mambo.

    Mkuu Gembe,
    Mbona inawezekana kabisa and thats how human nature ilivyo? Hata wewe sasa hivi ukiwa unapata mafanikio makubwa na unakuwa juu, them more mafanikio the more maadui watajitokeza kujaribu kuku shusha. So sishangai kabisa, kuona anaandama au kuandamwa kwani yuko juu sana ukicompare na wengi wetu.

    Gembe janja yako tumeijua,unadhani watu hatusomi mada zako humu ndani? Watu tuna kumbukumbu zetu,kila unachosema tunaweka kichwani.
    Naomba nikujibu kama ifuatavyo.
    Ukiangalia majina yote ambayo Mengi anagombana nayo,yamechafuka mbele ya jamii. Unajua watu wachafu wanaweza kushirikiana kupambana na wanaopambana nao?
    Gembe,kweli unawasaliti watanzania masikini kwa mkate wa siku moja? Kama husomeshwi na fisadi tunakuomba ukane humu ndani watu tulete data tulizonanzo.
    Nakufananishwa na kijana aliyepewa unga kidogo kutoka kwa wanakijiji wenye njaa ili akatafute cjhakula kijiji cha mbali halafu arudi kwa ajili ya wanakijij wenzake wenye. Lakini kijana huyu hakurudi na akalowea kwenye maisha ya anasa bila kujali nduguzake wanaokufa njaa.
