    It has become very common phenomena/feature of publicly financed interventions to protect people lives and assets are mostly reactive and crisis oriented..the case in point is Kilosa Flood!

    Resources and institutional capcities are typicaly mobilized on an ad-hoc basis, once a major shock such as floods, mabomu (mbagala), hunger has already taken place. However, I am concern, a concern citizen! because,

    This reactive approach has the following major drawbacks:-

    1st: The time it takes to mobilize the necessary resources may mean that the public response is not "timely and hence less effective than it should be"

    2nd: In the midst of a social crisis, the relative strength of voice or mobilization capacity of different groups tends to determine outcomes and how resources are allocated and used.hence creates loopholes for "ufisadi" and extra extra use of public funds without audit do occur....PM is responsible for maafa and has annual and min budget for every crisis management..there are reports that kilosa..crisis will cost the nation 7billions..the question is does it really go to the needy?

    Bottom line: The PM office "CRISIS MANAGEMENT" must be Pro-active rather than reactive to save peoples lives and national infrastructure??

    Good idea!
    Its the same in Haiti.
    Those poor people have been waiting a week for food. Its no wonder they are getting angry when supplies arrived days and days ago.
    However politicians have other priorities and don't like spending money on preventitive measures.
