Nhigula died on Sunday at Magomeni Mikumi Hospital in the city where he was admitted for treatment. He served in different capacities in the government and National Assembly as the Deputy Speaker.

    Family members of the late George Maige Nhigula are waiting for his fourth child, Emma Nhigula, to arrive from the United States of America, for the burial on Wednesday afternoon.
    This is scheduled to take place at the Kinondoni Cemetery, three o’clock in the afternoon, after a requiem mass at the African Inland Church in Magomeni, Dar es Salaam.
    In the meantime, the body is being kept at the Muhimbili National Hospital, while well-wishers may visit the family home within the NSSF Flats compound along Tabata Road, close to the area popularly known as Bima, to give their condolences.
    The late Nhigula, was born on April 3, 1929, in Kwimba District, Mwanza Region. He had started his working career as a teacher and taught such prominent people as Reginald Mengi and Arnold Kileo. After independence he left the classroom and joined the Foreign Services, where he served as ambassador in Egypt, the United Kingdom, Japan and India between 1968 and 1980.
    Prior to these appointments, he held the post of Principal Secretary within the Ministry of Labour from 1965 to 1966. The late Mzee Nhigula also represented Kwimba District as a Member of Parliament between 1985 and 1995.
    This is how he was elected as Deputy Speaker in 1986. After his retirement in 1995, he continued living a quiet existence, until he was diagnosed with cancer last year, which ultimately took his life on Saturday, August 13.
    He is survived by a widow and five children. One of his son’s, Tom Nhigula, told the ‘Daily News’ yesterday that at the age of 82, there is not much more they, as a family could have done to save his father’s life.
    But he is a bit concerned that a lot of elderly people, who have retired, after having worked so long, as he did, still have to struggle for their daily needs.
    “Until two weeks ago you could have found my father in the Posta area, walking around, struggling for his needs. He didn’t even have a car. I feel sad that a retired person, who worked so hard and long, should still go through such ordeals after retirement,” Tom said.

    Salaam za rambirambi kwa familia ya marehemu. Lakini, sehemu ya mwisho ya taarifa hii imenisitua kidogo. Mtoto wa marehemu sikumtarajia kulalamika kuhusu Marehemu Balozi kutokuwa na gari na namna ya kujikimu. Sehemu ya wajibu/jukumu hili linaangukia familia yake na sio Serikali pekee.

    Watoto wa Marehemu ni sehemu ya 'wateule' wa nchi hii. Wamesoma nje baba yao akiwa Balozi na kupatiwa elimu ambayo wengi wetu hatukuweza kuipata. Watoto hawa wamepatiwa fursa zote za kuweza kumnunulia baba yao gari na kumfanya aishi maisha mazuri baada ya kuwapatia msingi mzuri wa maisha. Wala wasingekuwa na sababu ya kulalamikia serikali.

    Je, watoto ambao wazazi wao wamestaafu na walitumikia Serikali kama walimu, madaktari na wakulima nao wasemaje?

    Sawa sawa kabisa, ila kama ujuavyo, kila kitu ni serikali.

    Wengine tulisoma na Tom, namwelewa ila sikubaliani nae kwahili.

    RIP Amb Nhigula

    RIP Balozi Nhigula.

    Maisha ya marehemu yalikujakuwa magumu kwasababu ya watoto wake kuweka nyumba yake ya Mikocheni kama collateral na kuchukua mkopo benki ambao walishindwa kuulipa hivyo nyumba ikauzwa!! Watoto ndio wa kulaumiwa sio serikali!!

    Emma Nhigula ni raia wa Marekani na aliwahi kuwa mwanasheria wa ubalozi wa Marekani nchini Tanzania...she must be the first to be blamed not the government

    Hapo kwenye RED ni vizuri Serikali ikaanza kuangalia jinsi ya kubana wenye Mabenki. Riba ni kubwa mno halafu ni walaghai wanadai riba ni 2% lakini ukweli ni zaidi ya hiyo. Ukichukua walichotoa na unachorudisha unakuta ni more than 50%

    ....mi nadhani alichoongea huyu bwana(mtoto wa marehemu) hakijaeleweka.
    Swala ni kwamba inabidi ifike wakati wastaafu wasiwategemee watoto wao,bali wanufaike na mafao ya kazi waliyofanya kwa kipindi chote walichotumikia taifa lao.Na hii iwe kwa wote,either watoto wako wawe na uwezo au wasiwe na uwezo,hili ndilo swala kubwa.MAFAO YA WASTAAFU IFIKE KIPINDI YAWANUFAISHE BILA KUTEGEMEA MSAADA WA MTU MWINGINE......
