VIVA la Tanzania! It has been a great week for Tanzania. From the images of a strong and recovering Singida East, Hon. Tundu Lissu to the mineral folks agreeing to pay a fine of $300 million to the government.

BEING one’s own worst enemy is a phenomenon that wouldn’t be worrisome, if it were exclusive to thrilling novels and movies written and produced by highly imaginative writers and producers. That, unfortunately, isn’t the case, as examples abound in real-life situations, that compromise happiness.

NYERERE Day was upon us once again. Along with the commemorations, it meant that we were exposed to the real documented work of our nation’s founder, but also, unfortunately, everybody’s interpretation of his legacy.

WELL, well. I thought we had gone over this already and put it to bed. Given the economic and social challenges ahead of us you would think we have enough on our collective national plate. Right? No.

I AM extremely surprised, my friend – and even an enemy, because it doesn’t really matter which is which – that, you have the patience to waste a bit of your million Japanese yen worth time to read this blah-blah.

Hate speech and propaganda is always ghoulish to any nation striving for peace, unity and search for a common ground. In recent past, we have come across a number of disturbing video clips that went viral in the social media displaying politicians ‘talking politics.’

WE all seem to live for now. Your pay cheque, living quarters and family are all that matter. But what about your neighbourhood – and your neighbours? And talking about your neighbours, what kind of rubbish do you throw across the courtyard? Yes, these are questions we ask of ourselves now; but we hardly take the time to think about tomorrow.

WE have lived with it for so many years. A good number of public service institutions have been ‘under custody’ when it comes to fake certificates. Unveiling people who have been offering service(s) armed with fake certificates, and therefore fake qualifications, and to some extent fake service delivery, has been, in most cases, in the service of truth.

I HAVE been fighting what I consider a noble battle with my grandkids. You know how the young ones are so quick to tell on each other on the tinniest of misdeeds. My sister does not want to share. Or my friend is playing too much with my game.

WHOEVER you are, as a creature of God like me, and whatever you are doing to do what is known as earning the daily bread – even if a wise doctor forbade you to eat it for some strange medical reasons – I am greeting you (most sincerely, I swear) by one of the briefest expressions of goodwill that God ever created: Hi! If you know of someone who can cure me of a strange disease whose stupid nature I’m about to sketch, please refer me to him or her, the way a local doctor who has failed to cure a patient refers the person to a more intelligent (sorry, better technically facilitated) colleague abroad.

I came to Dar and stayed at a top notch hotel. When taking a hot shower, I burnt myself very badly as the shower water was very hot. I talked to the ho-tel boss that as part of compensation he allows me to stay free for one week but he is refusing. I have reported him to the Tanzania Tourist Board but they have not taken any action. What should I do?PL, Dar

TANZANIAN currency notes annoy me immensely. They behave as though my pockets are as hot as furnaces from which they flee fast, lest they are converted into ashes.

WAS indulging my habit of listening to different lecturers the other day. I enjoy any lectures from all over the world, particularly those on psychology and more so human behaviour but I’ll generally listen to anything that is available on the internets [read: free].
