    The government has been advised to
    fast-track the signing of a Memorandum
    of Understanding with the Russian
    government to enable more Tanzanian
    students secure scholarships to study in
    Russian universities. Ambassador of Russian Federation in
    Tanzania Alexander Rannikh made the
    call in Dar es Salaam on Monday night
    when giving a word of advice to five
    Tanzanian students who have been
    awarded scholarships to pursue graduate and post graduate studies in Oil and Gas
    Engineering, Medicine and Law. The envoy said Tanzania needed to do
    more in the education sector by sending
    more Tanzanians out to receive
    education for the benefit of the country. “The Russian government is awarding
    thirty scholarships for Tanzanian
    competent students in different field of
    studies, but annually the rate and
    numbers of students getting the
    scholarships does not meet the target,” he said. He said for the past two years Russian
    diplomat have been reminding Tanzanian
    government officials on signing the MoU
    to no avail.

    He said upon the inking of the MoU the
    country will have opportunity to assign
    more Tanzanian students to Russian
    Universities. “The Russian Ministry of Uranium and
    that of Education have been both
    providing 15 scholarships and even more
    however the government end up
    assigning few Tanzanians,” he claimed. In explaining the Ambassador said only
    those who have been awarded Russian
    scholarships will be objected to find
    meals and extra clothes on their own
    expenses while other costs will be spend
    by the Russian government. The Russian government provides
    students with Accommodations, Tuition
    fees, transport fare, Research fees, Health
    care, Visa and security.

    The ambassador noted however that the
    Russian scholarships initiatives
    demonstrates the high value that the
    Russia place in building relationships
    with Tanzania, based on mutual
    understanding, respect and people-to- people linkages through education. “We hope that these students upon their
    returns to Tanzania will become real
    professionals in their fields and steer
    serious impacts on development of
    medicine, mining sector and legal system
    in the country,” he noted. Students awarded Russian scholarships
    include Lupoly John, Samson Cyprian,
    Augustino Ntasima, Adamson Raphael
    and Rabi Lebi. Speaking to The Guardian Samson Cyprian
    said poor results in Mathematics among
    Tanzanian girls limited their chances of
    securing Russian Scholarships.

    Efforts to reach the Minister for Education
    and Vocational Training, Dr Shukuru
    Kawambwa to respond to the envoy’s
    remarks failed after calls on his mobile
    phone went unanswered. Deputy minister Philip Mulugo said he
    could not respond as he was in his
    Songwe constituency in Mbeya.

    The Deputy Minister is busy in his constituency leaving aside the challenges facing the Tanzanian uducation. The root cause is Consitution which allow multiple 'caps'. How can a person work for the Legislature and Cabinet at the same time?
    Politics undermine education development leading to empty headed workers.
