I am having this strange feeling that I don't have to try to complete this ‘before power goes off". The thing is, power hasn't been going off lately. As a matter of fact, there has been water and electricity in my part of town, continuously for two weeks! This is quite unusual; is there a catch? What is wrong? Availability of water and electricity is not by any means the only puzzle that I have been pondering these last few days. I have been wondering about the logic of this BoT thing too. It seems to me that if you heard that some theft had occurred in your house, and on inspection of the first room you indeed found evidence of theft, you would want to inspect the other rooms as well. If we have established that money was stolen from the External Payments Account, why wouldn't we want to know whether money was stolen from the other accounts too? I had some breakfast this morning, and I thank Gold Almighty for that precious gift. I did not enjoy it fully though, for I was listening to news at the same time, and I did not like what I was hearing about our university students. I didn't like it one bit. Those blokes are so upset about election fraud in Kenya that they have pounded the tarmac all the way from their Hill to Jangwani Grounds! But what have they done to register their objection to the stealing of large amounts of the very money that keeps them at the Hill? Why have our university students not demonstrated to demand an investigation of all the stealing that has been done at the BoT over the last ten years? Don't they know that it is this very stealing that denies them adequate educational loans? The money that has been siphoned off through the BoT over the last few years would have been enough to build a bridge from Feri to Kigamboni! I find what I am hearing about lecturers at UDSM puzzling too. These colleagues have complained, to the public, that there are tribal groupings at the Hill. I thought we, the public, could complain to the dons about things like this, but perhaps I was wrong. Don't the lecturers of UDSM have more input into the shaping of behavior at the Hill than you and I? Learning is changed behavior. Lectures are well positioned to fight tribalism among students. They do this better in lecture theatres than in public squares. Like I said, Dar is indeed a puzzling place. Lets see what tomorrow brings.
