    Tanzania on alert following Al Shabaab attacks in Kenya
    [​IMG]

    Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. October 28, 2011
    - Tanzania's police have alerted the public to possible attack by Somalia's terrorist Al Shabaab group, saying every citizen should watch out and report to the force unfamiliar persons. "What is happening in Kenya can also occur in Tanzania," Tanzania's Inspector General of Police (IGP) Said Mwema said, underlining the need for security organs of East African countries to collaborate in a military offensive against Al Shabaab terrorists. Mwema told journalists here that some militias of the Somali group linked to the recent attacks in Kenya were from East African countries.

    Observing that acts of terrorism could spill over to Kenya's neighbours, notably Tanzania and Uganda, he said the Tanzanian Police Force supported their Kenyan counterparts "by providing them with intelligence information."

    According to the IGP, Tanzanian authorities have taken steps to beef up security along the country's borders, including the coastal waters in the Indian Ocean.

    "I would like to assure the public that our armed forces are on the alert to ensure security on all borders of the country," Mwema said, adding that 13 suspected pirates arrested this year were undergoing prosecution in court.

    "Acts of piracy and illegal migration have been noticed in regions bordering on the Indian Ocean and at this time fighting terrorism is the priority of the police force," he added.

    Mr. IGP the problem is your fellow ministrians-the immigration department, they know every allien in this country as they are the ones who grant them resident permits and passports. Anza kusafisha chumbani mwako kwanza ndiyo utoke nje.

    Hawa wa "k" wametumwa kwa maslahi ya wakubwa.Wakubwa hawataki tena kwenda na vita ya ardhini halafu wakapigwa kwa mara ingine tena,ndio sababu France inawasaidia kenya kurusha makombora kutokea kwenye meli yake ya kivita bahari ya Hindi na Marekani imeweka base yake ya drones kama sikosei Madagascar.

    Sasa ndio mtaelewa zile bomu za balozi za Nairobi na Dar maana yake nini.
    Karibuni kwenye vita dhidi ya magaidi.

    Hivi hawa magaidi wanapata silaha na mafunzo yao wapi?

    Kwa hisani ya US, vyandarua, malaria fight program, millenium fund ..plus vita dhidi ya ugaidi. It is payback time.

    THE United States and East African countries of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi are conducting joint military exercises in Zanzibar beginning on Sunday, Major General Said Shaaban Omar, joint exercise director, said at a press conference on Thursday.

    "The exercise is dubbed 'Natural fire 11' and will be conducted at Chukwani TPDF training centre in Zanzibar.


    Daily News | First EAC-US joint military exercise in Zanzibar

    na hapa MICHUZI: Balozi Tsere ahudhuria kufungwa kwa mazoezi ya kijeshi ya kupambana na maharamia mjini Salima, Malawi


    Tulishajitayarisha kwa vita hii kwa hisani ya mwenye mali.

    NTC za nchi mbali mbali zinapata msaada kutoka kwa nani? Nani huwa anatoa mafunzo na zana za kazi?

    Haya ndio "mambo" yanasambaa hayo kama moto nyikani.

    Sasa ni wakati wa kulipima Jeshi la Polisi na Usalama wa Taifa kuhusu utendaji wao wa kazi, kwa maana tumezoea kuviona hivyo vyombo muhimu kwa Taifa vikifanya kazi ambazo si zake hasa za kusaidia magamba kuchakachua kura kwenye chaguzi na kuwamwagia raia maji ya upupu wanapofanya maandamano, sasa tunataka tuone intelejensia ile ile inayotumika kuzima maandamano na kuchakua kura itumike kuwajua Al Shabab aka "'Wazee wa Sambusa"

    this was bound to happen wakenya waende au wasiende somalia... na kama unaishi Dar utagundua kwamba we have wale polisi waliozagaa na silaha mitaani, airport na sehemu muhimu, na ilianza over 6 months ago

    And if you have a chance to talk to them, alert zilianza zamani... kwa wenzetu wakenya nadhani walijua there was an imminent threat that slipped into their radar,

    sijui lakini but with or without Kenya invasion haya yalikua yatokee

    kwa wanaokumbuka jamaa waliokamatwa pangani, waliokamatwa pemba nk... na wanaendelea kukamatwa

    Wallaahu mustaan, lakini fitna imeshavuruga akili na mitazamo ya viongozi wetu.

    Punde tu mtu yeyote mwenye kuhoji au kusema ukweli ataadhibiwa sio kwa kubandikwa "ugaidi" tu bali ataitwa "mhaini".

    Punde si punde Taifa letu litakamilika kugawika kimitazamo baina ya upande mmoja: waislamu wa kweli (ambao wanaikubali Shariah kwa mujibu wa Qurani na Sunna kuwa ni mfumo kamili wa kimaisha na kiutawala katika kila nyanja ya maisha, na kwa hiyo ni haki kwa nchi za waislamu kuitumia kama system, sio lazima hapa kwetu) upande mwengine: Wasiokuwa waislamu (kundi kubwa la wale wasio waislamu wa kweli/wanafiki (yaani secularists muslims:- kwa maana nafasi ya Sharia, Qur-ani na Sunna imeunganishwa katika nguzo ya kwanza ya uislmau-Shahada, na muislmau ambaye anavibeza, kuvifumbia macho au kuvikataa vitu hivyo, shahada yake huporomoka na kubakia kuwa mshirikina au mnafiki kama nilivyosema); au wenye imani nyenginezo zisizokuwa za kiislmau kwa mfano wakristo, na makafiri (wenye kuuchukia uislamu kwa kuuona kama kizingiti kwa matamanio yao machafu ya ulimwengu na walimwengu).

    Hivi ndio kusema waislamu wa kweli waTanzania ndo magaidi au wahaini kwa kusema hivi?? Hivi ndio kusema wasiokuwa waislamu waTanzania ndio wana mapenzi sana na nchi yetu kuliko sisi? Huu ni upumbavu na matusi yasiweza kustahamilika maana sote vitovu vyetu vimezikwa katika ardhi hii ya Tanzania na kwa hiyo ni ardhi takatifu kwetu sote. Masuala ya ndani ya nyumba na kitaifa kama ufisadi, tuyaangalie kwa mapana na marefu yake, na vilevile masuala ya nje na kimataifa kama ugaidi tuyaangalia kwa mapana na marefu yake. TUSIBURUZANE....

    Wasomali mwanzo wake ni mapigano wenyewe kwa wenyewe, na Al-Shabab imeibuka kutokana ndani ya "Baraza la Mahkama" lililotawala kiislamu (Shariah) kwa salama na amani nchini Somalia kwa kipindi kifupi cha miezi kama 9 mnamo 2006 kama sikosei, kipindi kilichokuwa na chenye neema na baraka ambao hakukuwa na mlio wa bunduki. Hii ilichafuliwa "kigaidi" na uvamizi wa Ethiopia uliofanywa chini ya remote control ya mabwana zao wa Magharibi kuuondosha utawala wa kiislmau uliokuwa unaanza kunawiri. Uvamizi ule wa kigaidi ndio uliogawa kundi la mahakama into 1) Waliokubali kuuza uislamu kwa bei chee ya kumoderate, kusecularise, demokrasi na utumbo utumbo wa mifumo mengine pamoja navo (serikali ya sasa) 2) Waliokataa kuuuza uislamu kwa bei hizo na kuamua kuurudisha hata kama italazimika kupigana jihadi (Hili ndio kundi la Al-Shabab). Kwa kifupi ni wenyewe kwa wenyewe. Nani asiyeweza ku-guess hapa kwamba Zionists, Marekani na washirika wao wata-support kundi gani hapa na kundi lipi watalibandika jina la "Magaidi" na parapaganda nyenginezo za kuwapaka matope wakati watazamaji wenye kufuata mkumbo wapooooo?

    Miongoni mwa wenye kufuata mkumbo mpaka sasa: Swali linakuja!!!

    Uganda ilishambuliwa na Al-Shabab kwasababu ya kushiriki kwao katika kufuata mkumbo kivitendo, Burundi wameonywa na Al-Shabab kwa kufuata kwao mkumbo kivitendo. Kenya wameanzwa kudokolewa dokolewa kwasababu ya kuvuka mipaka katika kufuata mkumbo kivitendo, maana hapana shaka mazungumzo na jirani yangewezekana. je sisi tumefanya nini ?????????????? hata Al-Shabab watushambulie??????? Au ndio katika kujaribu kuwapaka matope kidiplomasia kwamba wao kazi yao ni kushambulia na kuua tuu bila sababu yeyote ile achilia mbali sababu za msingi??

    Sijui kama umejisumbua kidogo angalau kusoma ni nini kinachoendelea Somalia. Majirani wa Somalia wameshindwa kuunganisha nguvu na kutafuta solution ya matatizo ya Somalia. Kenya walipaswa kufanya haya zaidi ya miaka 10 iliyopita. Kwa upande wetu Tanzania sioni ajabu kusikia onyo la IGP,hawa jamaa wapo huku wakifanya biashara,wengine wapo katika magenge yanayo safirisha vijana wa Kisomali kwenda Afrika Kusini. Kwa wenye kumbukumbu miaka michache iliyopita huko Ngorongoro kulikua na majangili ya Kisomali yakiteka,kuiba na kuua wenyeji na watalii. Polisi wetu waliwashindwa mpaka tulipo tumia JWTZ ndipo tulirudisha usalama na amani.

    New Jersey Mayors, Jewish Rabbis Allegedly Trafficked Knock-Off Gucci Bags With Laundered Money

    By AMIR EFRATI, SUZANNE SATALINE and DIONNE SEARCEY

    New Jersey has never been short of corruption scandals, but the one that unfolded yesterday was surprising even by the standards of the state that inspired "The Sopranos."

    [​IMG]
    David Bergeland, The Bergen Record/ Associated PressSecaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell boarded a bus at the FBI building after being taken into custody in Newark.





    Federal agents swept across New Jersey and New York on Thursday, charging 44 people -- including mayors, rabbis and even one alleged trafficker in human kidneys -- in a decadelong investigation into public corruption and international money laundering.
    The key to the investigation: a real-estate developer who became an informant after being arrested on bank-fraud charges in 2006, according to a person familiar with the case. The developer, Solomon Dwek, wore a wire for the Federal Bureau of Investigation while offering to bribe New Jersey mayors and other public officials, that person said.
    A lawyer for Mr. Dwek didn't respond to requests for comment.
    While the state has a long history of dirty politics -- in Newark alone, three ex-mayors have been convicted of crimes unrelated to the latest sweep -- the scale of the allegations shocked veterans of New Jersey's political crises.
    "This is not only a black eye, but this fans more cynicism," said Gene Grabowski, a crisis manager who has represented New Jersey clients in graft probes. "It validates this idea that New Jersey is a setting for 'The Sopranos.'"
    [​IMG]Associated PressA group of unidentified men are walked outside FBI offices Thursday in Newark, N.J., to a waiting bus for transport to court hearing. Federal agents swept across New Jersey on Thursday, charging 44 people in an investigation into public corruption and international money-laundering.



    More

    Court documents read like a pulp crime novel. At one point, Mr. Dwek (described as a "cooperating witness" in criminal complaints) is quoted saying to an alleged money-launderer: "I have at least $100,000 a month coming from money I 'schnookied' from banks for bad loans."
    Another time, Mr. Dwek gave one of the alleged co-conspirators a box of Apple Jacks cereal stuffed with $97,000 cash, the documents say.
    The arrests in the public-corruption portion of the probe included the Democratic mayors of Hoboken and Secaucus, Peter Cammarano III and Dennis Elwell; Republican state Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt; and Democrat Leona Beldini, the deputy mayor of Jersey City.
    A woman who picked up the phone at Mr. Van Pelt's office said, "Mr. Van Pelt was arrested today and is out of the office." His lawyer declined to comment.
    Mr. Cammarano's lawyer said he "intends to plead innocent because he is innocent."
    After her court appearance, Ms. Beldini said she didn't violate taxpayers' trust and declined to comment further while leaving the courthouse. Mr. Elwell and his lawyer declined to comment.
    Journal Community

    — Mitch Tedeschi

    Arrests on the investigation's money-laundering side include several rabbis in New York and New Jersey, said Ralph Marra Jr., acting U.S. attorney for New Jersey. The arrestees appeared in federal court in New Jersey Thursday afternoon.
    Corruption among the politicians was "a way of life," Mr. Marra said. "They existed in an ethics-free zone."
    The probe includes a bizarre sideshow: the alleged trafficking of human kidneys, a lucrative, illegal industry and not one that's typically showcased alongside political shenanigans.
    In the course of the investigation last year, Mr. Dwek came into contact with an alleged organ trafficker, Levy Izhak Rosenbaum, and told him Mr. Dwek's uncle needed a new kidney, according to court papers. The two men discussed how Mr. Dwek would pay a $160,000 fee to buy a kidney from a donor in Israel, documents show. According to the complaint, Mr. Rosenbaum described himself as a "matchmaker."
    Mr. Rosenbaum couldn't be reached for comment. A person who answered the phone at his residence declined to comment.
    This federal investigation grew out of two previous cases and dates back to 1999, according to the FBI. It culminated at 6 a.m. Thursday with more than 200 FBI and Internal Revenue Service agents making arrests and executing search warrants throughout the state, said Weysan Dun, special agent in charge of the FBI's Newark office.
    In all, 29 people were caught up in the public-corruption part of the probe. Fifteen were implicated in the investigation into money laundering, including Mr. Rosenbaum, who was charged with conspiring to broker the sale of a kidney.
    Court documents quote a number of incriminating wiretap recordings involving New Jersey politicians -- some prominent names, others known only in their small communities. For example, according to court documents, on April 27, FBI agents caught an incoming call from former Jersey City council candidate Guy Catrillo to a consultant's cellphone. The consultant asked Mr. Catrillo: "Did you get the money from [Mr. Dwek] when we saw him the other day?"
    Mr. Catrillo replied: "Yeah, I took care of that. Yeah."
    Mr. Catrillo's office didn't answer the phone Thursday.

    Looking Back

    Journal articles on organized crime in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
    Mr. Dwek, a 36-year-old religious-school head and philanthropist from Monmouth County, N.J., was at the heart of the investigation. He began his career as a small-time real-estate developer whose investors included friends and relatives in the Syrian Jewish community. Three years ago he was charged with defrauding PNC Bank of $25 million and remained free on a $10 million bond.
    In 2007, Mr. Dwek began working for the FBI, wearing a wire and being trailed by FBI agents who videotaped his encounters with targets of their probe, according to someone familiar with the matter and information in the complaints. Prosecutors said the alleged bribe-taking was often tied to election fund-raising efforts. Other recipients took cash for direct personal use, prosecutors allege.
    In the case involving Mr. Cammarano, who became Hoboken mayor on July 1, he was charged with accepting $25,000 in cash bribes from Mr. Dwek in return for promising support for zoning changes for a high-rise Mr. Dwek said he wanted to build. Mr. Cammarano is so new to the mayor's job that an events poster outside his office still lists the name of the previous mayor, David Roberts, on it.
    The alleged bribes occurred during the 32-year-old Mr. Cammarano's mayoral campaign earlier this year, according to the FBI's complaint.
    According to the complaint, Mr. Cammarano assured Mr. Dwek, that "[y]ou can put your faith in me" and that "I promise you...you're gonna be, you're gonna be treated like a friend."
    Supporters of the mayor expressed dismay at the charges. "This was a charismatic guy who we thought could get us past all this stuff," said Jay Rose, a 27-year resident of Hoboken who voted for Mr. Cammarano. "It looks like we're back to square one."
    In the FBI money-laundering probe, Mr. Dwek represented himself as someone who engaged in various illegal businesses, including bank fraud and counterfeiting of women's handbags. "Business is very good. Prada, Gucci, boom, boom, boom," Mr. Dwek boasted at one point, according to court papers.
    The alleged money-laundering operations -- most of them run by rabbis as religious charity organizations -- laundered about $3 million for Mr. Dwek in his capacity as a cooperating witness since June 2007, according to the court documents and a person familiar with the matter. Mr. Dwek likely will receive credit from federal prosecutors for his cooperation.
    [​IMG]


    The prosecutors allege that the rabbis used nonprofit organizations connected to their synagogues to launder money they understood came from criminal activity.
    In 2007 Eliahu Ben Haim, principal rabbi of Congregation Ohel Yaacob, a synagogue located in the New Jersey shore community of Deal, accepted a $50,000 check from Mr. Dwek, which was drawn from an account held by a phony company set up by the FBI for Mr. Dwek to help facilitate the investigation, according to the complaint.
    The check was made payable to one of Mr. Ben Haim's charitable organizations with the expectation that the proceeds would eventually be returned to Mr. Dwek, documents indicate; Mr. Ben Haim, who was charged with money laundering on Thursday, was to take a 10% fee.
    A woman who answered the phone at Ohel Yaacob Congregation in Deal said, "I don't have anything to say." Michael O'Donnell, Mr. Ben Haim's lawyer, declined to comment.
    The arrests place an added burden on Gov. Jon Corzine, a Democrat in his first term who is running for re-election this year. Mr. Corzine ran four years ago promising to quash corruption. "The scale of corruption we're seeing as this unfolds is simply outrageous and cannot be tolerated," he said in a statement.
    In Hoboken, a city of just less than 40,000, city-clerk employees at the municipal building huddled around a small television to watch the news conference announcing the charges.
    Some residents there said they weren't so surprised. "It happens everywhere in New Jersey," said James Goggin, a Hoboken resident. "I'll tell you one thing -- it never gets boring here. But sometimes I wish it would."
