    Tanzania: Tanzania an African Model for Stability, Democratization, Education, Says Ban

    27 February 2009
    ________________________________________
    On the last full day of his official visit to Tanzania today, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called the country a model for overcoming some of Africa's thorniest challenges in a press conference in the country's capital, Dar es Salaam.

    Earlier in the day, Mr. Ban also visited Zanzibar, where he met with President Amani Abeid Karume and opened a "One UN" office on the island, and briefly sat in on the UN tribunal on the Rwandan genocide, which is based in the Tanzanian city of Arusha.

    At the press conference in Dar es Salaam, Mr. Ban saluted President Jakaya Kikwete and the Tanzanian people for their mediation role in the peace processes in Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Zimbabwe.

    He said that the country was also on its way to achieving a good many of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of ambitious targets to reduce extreme poverty and other global ills by 2015, on which much of Africa was lagging."One of the striking examples is Tanzania's massive gains in primary education enrolment - 97.2 per cent in 2008 - which puts it right on track to reach universal primary education, an exemplary model for other African countries," he said, adding that gender parity had been reached at the same time, in primary education.

    Flying over Mount Kilimanjaro, he was reminded, however, of the great threat to the continent posed by climate change and urged the Tanzanian Government to continue its efforts in that area.

    "I saw almost no snow or ice on the Kilimanjaro. I thought of the small farmers deprived of a precious reserve of water. I was told of villages on the slope of the mountain, now plagued with malaria, where none existed before.

    "I am also impressed by the results so far of the One UN reform process that a small group of countries, including Tanzania, are piloting. This unique and experimental process ensures that UN agencies in a given country are not just housed together but also work in a more coherent, focused, and strategic manner. It also ensures that their work is in line with the needs and priorities of their host country."

    He said he was proud to have inaugurated one such office in Zanzibar, but Tanzania was also piloting that initiative.

    Si ndivyo mlivyo mdanganya na hamkutaka kumwambia ukweli. Mmezoea unafiki tu hata kwenye maisha yenu ya kawaida

    Na mgeni akija, unafagia sebuleni na nje, unapamba maua na manukato, kumbe ndani hujatandika kitanda, hujadeki,kunanuka na kuna mende kibao. mgeni atakusifia, ataondoka lakini wewe utabaki na uchafu wako kama kawa. bora ungejionyesha dhahiri ulivyo ili pengine akukosoe, akurekebishe,akupe ushauri kama hauna dekio na kisafishio au akupige tafu. kaaazi kwelikweli.

    The opportunity cost of the so called,stability,democratization and education is the continued fall of the standard of living of the man in the street

    My understanding is that mtu kama Katibu Mkuu wa UN hatakiwi ku-act kama mwanasiasa. Ndugu Ban alipata wasaa mzuri wa kuzungumzia kinagaubaga the realities on the ground in terms of what he saw and what he knows about Tanzania. Ndugu katibu alipata wasaa mzuri wa kuona jinsi watanzania walivyo masikini wa kupindukia wakati huohuo akistaajabia utajiri in terms of natural resources uliopindukia hapa TZ. Mbona ndugu yetu Ban huku-brainstorm chochote kuhusiana na discrepancies ulizoziona? I think ilikuwa ni golden opportunity kumbana ndugu Kikwete kuhusiana na ufisadi unaohusishwa moja kwa moja na waliomzunguka. Kwa hili ndugu Ban Ki Moon umetuangusha!!!!
