I haven't seen a picture of Sumbawanga. I haven't been to the place. They need to a have a local newspaper there. I am very thankful that there is Arusha Times. I visit them (at www.arushtimes.co.tz) every weekend. I know all about what is going on in Arusha. You see, you cannot depend on the Dar newspapers. They don't seem to have much interest in regional Tanzania. We used to have a well established local paper in Kilimanjaro. It was called KOMKYA. Mwalimu banished it. That man resented anything that looked like a center of power. And news is power. It is time it was revived! Mwalimu held all national news close to his chest. He personally appointed the Managing Editors of all the dailies and weeklies of the nation (all four of them). (Daily Noise, Sunday Noise, Uhuru and Mfanyakazi). But he remained Editor in Chief of them all. I assume Mwanza has a daily, or at least a weekly. It is a city for Christ's sake! Does anyone know any applicable websites? I'd like to read about the joys and pains of my compatriots there. It is unlikely that there are enough schooled people in Mtwara to start a daily there, but they too must find some way of sharing news among themselves and with the nation. A local radio might be a starting point. TV and newspapers could follow in a few years. News stimulates progress. See how much the Brits and the Americans spend on global news networks. Many of us find Sumbawanga uninteresting because we never hear about the place. That would change with the establishment of a Rukwa weekly. For now, I only recall Sumbawanga as the place where Mwalimu used to banish those he considered to be political misfits. Not fair at all! So, let there be news from the regions, as told by the regions. The bits and tits that we now get through Manzese based journalists is not even a reasonable strting point.
