    The government has said it is set to create over 800,000 new jobs in different socio-economic sectors during the 2012/13 financial year.
    The projected number of job opportunities is different from the 56, 678 allocated for servants in the public service as announced by Minister of State in the President's Office (Public Service Management), Celina Kombani in her budget estimates.
    Tabling her ministry’s budget estimates Labour and Employment minister Gaudentia Kabaka, said most of the job opportunities will be created through implementation of different development programmes.
    The minister cited some of the sectors that will employ large number of people as infrastructure construction, particularly of roads, which is expected to create 646,615 jobs in this financial year.
    Agriculture is also in the list of sectors which are expected to create more job opportunities, according to the minister, with a projection of 169,189 jobs.
    Other sectors include communications with 27, 600 jobs earmarked, and industry and trade with more than 5,000 employments.
    The councils of Dar es Salaam and Coast regions are also expected to create 6,885 jobs. The minister asked Tanzanians, especially youths, to fully exploit the opportunities and not pick and choose jobs.
    Kabaka stated that her ministry would reinforce the system of collecting and disseminating information on the country’s job market, from all projects implemented by the government, under the Five-Year National Development Plan.
    “Having information on the job market will help more people to be employed and hence, contribute to the national economy,” the minister said.
    She asked the private sector to play an active role in opening up more investments which in turn would help increase employment.
    “As government, we’ll ensure that the investment environment is improved, so as to create jobs in the country,” she said, calling upon financial institutions to introduce workable programmes to enable people to easily access loans.
    She also asked local government authorities to play an active role in creating jobs in their respective areas, by allocating special areas for agricultural production for youths. “There must be areas allocated for youths to get involved in farming, livestock keeping, small-scale industries, and businesses,” she said.
    In 2011, the minister said, in sub-Saharan Africa, unemployment level was 8.2 percent and the problem was worse to youth whereby 12.8 per cent of them had no jobs.
    “In Tanzania, statistics show that 11.7 percent of youth are not employed,” the minister revealed.
    A total of 9,056, 217 youth, equivalent to 86 percent are employed in different sectors, while 1,398,677 youth (13 percent) are out of employment.
    On the Social Security Act of 2012 that prohibits members of various pension funds to withdraw their contributions before they reach the mandatory retirement age, the minister said the idea looks good but people are not prepared.
    She said implementation of the law, was received with different perception by the public, because of lack of information.
    “We’re coming up with a special education package on the importance of joining social security funds across the country. This will make the public understand the benefits of the social security sector,” she said.
    Reading recommendations of the Parliamentary Committee on Labour and Employment, Assumpter Nshunju Mshama asked the government through the Social Security Regulatory Authority (SSRA) to come up with a strategy that would make the sector expand, so that it reaches the large groups of people, including those in an informal sector.
    The committee also asked the government to ensure that all social security funds operate under one ministry for easier coordination.
    Shadow minister for Labour and Employment, Cesilia Paresso, stressed the need for the country’s social security funds to allocate money for education fund to be used by members who would want to further their careers.

    ok, if the defnition of job is that activity that gives someone his bread for the day!! it doesnt matter if it casual labour or proffesional work, doesn't matter if those labourers in the road and construction sectors keep on being recriuited now and again, and what about distribution of those jobs? what payment are they getting? sio 3,000/= kwa siku?
