    Judge Ronald Giles sent Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to Wayne County Jail for failing to notify the court of his trip to Canada and violating the terms of his bond.

    Despite Kilpatrick's humble apologies to the court beforehand, Giles said he needed to treat Kilpatrick as an ordinary citizen and sent him immediately to jail.

    BANK of Tanzania governor's office has confirmed that it is currently reviewing employment details of some of the political and bureaucratic elites employed at the central bank.

    Several names of sons, daughters and kin and kith of government and ruling party elites are currently working with the central bank where acts of massive embezzlement and corrupt deeds have been made under former governor, the late Daudi Ballali.

    An audit report by Massawe Ernst & Young on Bank of Tanzania (BoT)'s external arrears payment account earlier this year caused shock waves when it was revealed that 22 shell companies were paid over 133bn/- in 2005/6 fiscal year.

    A list of shame that circulated in cyberspace for sometime earlier this year, named several names of former prime ministers, presidents, cabinet ministers ruling party secretary general and chief secretaries whose sons, daughters or close relatives are on BoT's payroll.

    Soon after the list of shame started circulating, the opposition pressed parliament to select a probe team which would look into various irregularities at the central bank including loss of billions of shillings not only from the external arrears payment account but also links to employment of high profile public officials' kin and kith

    Reports says actually most of these controversial employees of the central bank have neither the requisite qualifications to fit into jobs which they currently serve. Others are currently attending classes at the Institute of Finance Management, Mzumbe University and other foreign universities with presence in the country.

    It looks like the employment criteria at the central bank favours people related to former presidents, prime ministers, ministers, some chief secretaries and so on and so forth, any explanation?

    I don't really think that these sons and daughters of political and bureaucratic heavy weights both current and past, have no right or are ill qualified to work at the central bank, but my concern is why is BoT looking like a favourite place for them to work?

    It's a fact that most of these sons, daughters and relatives of political and bureaucratic elites are well qualified, with academic credentials like degrees of course, because most of them either study abroad or the best schools right here at home.

    But having a degree from Harvard or Cambridge Universities is one thing and competence is a completely different matter. The fact that the man who was in charge of employment at the central bank has been relieved of his duties shows that all is not well.

    Normal thinking convinces me that in as far as some of the modern thieving Tanzanian politicians and bureaucrats are, their children and relatives got employed at the BoT strictly on know who and not how. I am not saying all of them, no. But I am sure a good number of them.

    It's no coincidence that names of politicians and bureaucrats who have already made newspaper headlines for their role in corrupt or thieving deals while in public office, are featuring prominently on the BoT big shots� list of children and relatives.

    I won't be amazed to find out that some of the na�ve children and relatives of the political and bureaucratic elites who are occupying positions at the central bank, lack both qualifications and experience required to fill their jobs.

    This is what central bank Governor, Professor Benno Ndullu and his new team of administrators and managers should start with. Cleansing the central bank is more than sacking Ballali, shuffling several BoT officers and calling a press conference to defend the astronomical price of BoT twin towers.

    American people must look forward to similar shenanigans if Obama becomes president. Sure he acts civilized now but just wait until he gets into the office.

    Hapana, huyu jamaa anaweza kuwa hana uhusiano kabisa na Ghana. Waamerika weusi walioendelea kidogo hupenda sana kutumia majina ya kiafrika. Majina ya Kenyatta, Kwame, na Mandela ni maarufu sana miongoni mwao; na hata yule mwasisi wa Kwanzaa ya waamerika weusi anajiita Maulana Kalenga, majina ambayo aliyatoa Tanzania.

    Mimi mtoto wangu mmoja alipozaliwa hapa marekani nilimpa jina la Makoye, ambalo pia ni jina la marehemu babu yangu na ni jina lenye asili ya kisukuma. Nesi aliesimamia uzazi wa mke wangu alikuwa mwamerika mweusi, na aliniuliza maana ya jina hilo nami nikamfafanulia. Baada ya mwaka mmoja tulikutana tena na nesi yule naye akiwa na kitoto chake kichanga kikiitwa Makoye.

    Mich. AG: Detroit mayor violated bail terms again​

    By ED WHITE, Associated Press Writer 12 minutes ago

    DETROIT - A prosecutor on Monday accused Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick of violating his bond in an assault case by spending time over the weekend with his sister, one of 11 witnesses listed by authorities.

    Kilpatrick and Ayanna Kilpatrick were together at their mother's house Saturday, a day after he was released from jail for violating bond in a separate perjury case, said Doug Baker of the Michigan attorney general's office.

    The mayor is charged with assaulting two investigators who were trying to deliver a subpoena at his sister's house in July in the perjury case.

    In a court filing, Baker said the mayor had been ordered to have no contact with witnesses.

    Kilpatrick's defense team, however, believes the mayor is not in any trouble. Attorney Jim Thomas said Magistrate Renee McDuffee clarified Friday that Kilpatrick could have contact with his sister.

    In a statement, Kilpatrick spokesman Marcus Reese accused state Attorney General Mike Cox, a Republican, of trying to score political points with the latest filing against the embattled Democratic mayor.

    36th District Court Judge Ronald Giles will hold a hearing on the matter on Tuesday.

    Giles is the judge who sent Kilpatrick to jail Thursday for violating his bond conditions in a perjury case involving Kilpatrick and a former top aide. The mayor traveled to Windsor, Ontario, for city business July 23 without first notifying authorities.

    Baker's filing asked the court to look at what happened and amend the terms of Kilpatrick's bond. The document doesn't mention any possible changes, and Baker left court without speaking to reporters.

    Kilpatrick was released Friday after a higher court, acting on an appeal, set his bond at $50,000.

    Baker referred to the perjury case by saying the mayor has "demonstrated an inability to adhere to reasonable bond conditions."

    Kilpatrick and his former chief of staff, Christine Beatty, were charged in March with perjury, obstruction of justice and misconduct in office. They will be arraigned Thursday in Wayne County Circuit Court.

    Prosecutors say text messages contradict their denial of an affair, a key point in a trial involving a former deputy police chief who claimed he was illegally fired.

    Kilpatrick is the son of U.S. Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, D-Mich.
