    The congressional mandate was prompted in part by the abuses of a Tanzanian diplomat named Alan Mzengi, who was minister of consular affairs at his country's embassy in Washington. In a January 2008 ruling, a U.S. district court judge found that Mzengi and his wife forced a 20-year-old woman named Zipora Mazengo into domestic slavery in their six-bedroom Bethesda, Md., home. In her April 2007 lawsuit against the couple, Mazengo, by then 27, said that as soon as she arrived from Tanzania in June 2000, the diplomat confiscated her passport and her employment contract. For the next four years, Mazengo said, the Mzengis forced her to perform domestic work 112 hours per week for no pay. At night she shared a room with the Mzengis' infant, one of three children under her responsibility.

    Kwani hapa wengi wetu tunafanya nini? Ni hayo hayo ya huyo Afisa wa kibalozi.

    Ukifanya survey hapa Tanzania utakuta wafanyakazi wengi wanafanya kazi zaidi ya masaa 12 kwa siku, na asilimia si haba hawalipwi kwa madai kwkamba wanawekewa hizo fedha.

    Aibu iliyoje kwa munaofanya vitendo hivi!
