    The office of the Speaker of National Assembly has also been notified of the decision. It seems that though the document detailing the alternative planning has not be divulged, but the parliament has already indicated in its schedule for the 14th meting that the Finance Minister, Mr Mustafa Mkulo, will table the plan during the meeting.

    Has already prepared

    Well placed sources from the Ministry of finance and Economic Affairs confirmed that the ministry has already prepared the mini budget pending its review by the respective Parliamentary committee, before it was tabled in the parliament for general discussions and approval.

    “It’s true that the government is set to present its mini budget plan to the parliament… what we are looking for now is blessings of the parliamentary committee before the document if tabled for general discussion in the parliament,” from the ministry told The Citizen Monday

    The source who preferred anonymity as the issue was not supposed to be publicly be commented upon, added that the matter has been taken to speaker’s office which will make arrangement and take it to proper committee for review.

    Matumizi mabovu ya rasilimali, serikali inaishiwa pesa kabla ya mwisho wa mwaka. Wanaanza kutumia pesa ambazo zingetumika mwakani, hiyo itasababisha mwaka ujao wa fedha kusiwe na fedha za kutosha, na kuilazimisha serikali tena kuanza kutumia za mwaka keshokutwa, n.k. = Vicious Circle

    Too much sanaa, mara hela itapelekwa kwenye kilimo na msimu wa kilimo ndio unaishia hivyo. Sasa wbunge wet watakuwa kichekesho wakianza kupanga budget ya hela ambazo ni controversial bila kujua detail zake.

    Lets wait and see!!!!!!!!

    Jamani jamani jamani...

    Naomba kuwaeleza wandugu, bunge likishapitisha bajeti... hata serikali ikipata fedha zingine kutoka kwa wafadhili ambazo hazikuwa kwenye bajeti... lazima serikali iende Bungeni kuomba kutumia fedha hizo.

    Fedha za EPA zilishakubaliwa kupelekwa kwenye kilimo na benk ya Rasilimali TIB... Hivyo serikali inachofanya sasa ni kwenda kupewa go ahead na Bunge kama sehemu ya utawala bora.

    Mungu Ibariki Tanzani

    MINISTER DEFEND MIJINGU PROCUCTS
    JAPHET SANGA
    Daily News; Tuesday,January 27, 2009 @20:00

    THE Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Food Security and Co-operatives, Dr David Mathayo David, said yesterday that locally produced Minjingu fertilizer being subsidized by the government and distributed to farmers was good and meets international
    standards.

    Answering a supplementary question by Mr Benito Malangalila (Mufindi South - CCM), Dr Mathayo said both the imported fertilizer and Minjingu product has phosphorous
    which was crucial for maize growth and bumper yields.

    He brushed off a notion that the imported stuff was always superior to locally produced goods calling on Tanzanians to cultivate the culture of promoting quality Local products.
    In his supplementary question, the MP had expressed fear over the government's move to subsidize the Minjingu product during the 2008/09 farming season, saying it might fail the big four regions producers of maize in meeting their production targets.

    The deputy minister said the only difference was that the Minjingu fertilizer was produced in powder form instead of crystals that the farmers used to see, saying the ministry has advised the factory to revert to crystal form of fertilizer. Likewise, he called on regional authorities and agricultural extension officers and others working with grassroot farmers to educate them on the good quality of the product.

    Answering the main question by the same MP, Dr Mathayo said the government had set aside 40bn/- from the EPA account for agricultural subsidy during the 2008/09 financial year.
    The money, he said, will be spent on subsidizing 155,000 tonnes of fertilizer and 6,000 tonnes of improved eeds.

    He said due to a small budgetary allocation, only 700,000 farmers will be able to benefit from the subsidy during the farming season against 2.5 farmers who qualify in 11 regions. Despite the setback, he said statistics show that maize production in areas getting the subsidy has increased from 1.1 tonnes per hectare to about 1.5 tonnes.

    Furthermore, he said, general maize production has increased from 2.218 million tonnes during 2004/05 to 3.593 million tonnes in2007/08, an 11.65 per cent
