Relief food to Somalia to be shipped soon, says minister

About 3000 tonnes of relief food to hunger-stricken Horn of Africa will be dispatched on the designated place as soon as the South African ship under SADC flag docks at the Dar es Salaam Harbour.

Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Minister Bernard Membe told the National Assembly in Dodoma yesterday that the vessel would deliver all consignments of relief food pledged by the members of the SOuthern African Development Cooperation.

"The ship is expected in Dar es Salaam anytime now," said the minister, attributing the delay in shipment to, insecurity off the Somalia Coast in the Indian Ocean.

He ruled out any further delay as security situation in the region had improved tremendeously of late.  He added that the government also pledged 200,000 US Dollars to the war and hunger ravaged Somalia.

The minister was reacting to Chambani Member of Parliament (CUF) Salim Hemed Khamis who had sought to know how the government was living up to the Africa Union's slogan "One Africa One Vote Against Hunger" adopted last year, requiring African countries to come to the rescue of the troubled region.

The AU had observed that food insecurity remained at emergency levels across parts of the Horn of Africa, with famine declared in two regions of Southern Somalia and humanitarian organizations struggled to cope with the influx of Somalia refugees in Ethiopia and Kenya.

Mr. Membe said the AU members during their special meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia last August pledged 350m US Dollars for the cause.

He however, observed that as of February of this year, it emerged that some 1 bn US Dollars was needed to address the situation.

Quoting United Nations statistics, the minister said the disaster affected more than 12 million people, and deaths associated with famine reached an average of six people (five children and one adult) daily last year.

President Kikwete sends a Condolence Message to the President of Algeria

H.E. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, the President of the United Republic of Tanzania sends a condolence message to H.E. Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the President of the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria following the death of H.E Ahmed Ben Bella, First President of the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria.  The message reads as follows:   

“H. E. Abdelaziz Bouteflika 
President of the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria
ALGIERS

Your Excellency and Dear Brother,

I am deeply saddened by the sad news of the untimely death of the founding Father of your great Nation that took place on 11th April, 2012.

On behalf of the Government and People of the United Republic of Tanzania, and indeed on my own behalf, I wish to convey our deepest sympathies and condolences to Your Excellency and, through you, to the bereaved family and relatives as well as the Government and the entire brotherly People of Algeria for this untimely death.

Tanzania will always remember the late Ahmed Ben Bella for the important role he played in cementing the relations between our two countries that so happily exists to-date.

 He will also be remembered as a truly son of Africa who stood for unity and dignity of the African people. Africa has indeed lost one of the charismatic and revolutionary leaders who dedicated his life not only for the struggle for the independence of Algeria but also for the other African countries that were still suffering under colonialism.  He also contributed positively to the peace and stability of Africa in his capacity as the Chairperson of the Panel of the Wise of the African Union. 

At this difficult moment of agony and distress, we share your grief and pray to the Almighty God to give the bereaved family, relatives and all the people of Algeria strength and courage to endure the agony resulting from this great loss.  May the Almighty God rest the soul of the deceased in eternal peace. 

Please accept, Your Excellency and Dear Brother, the assurances of my highest consideration.

Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete
President of the United Republic of Tanzania

Hayati Bingu wa Mutharika
Rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania, Mheshimiwa Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete amemtumia salamu za rambirambi Makamu wa Rais wa Malawi, Mheshimiwa Joyce Banda kuomboleza kifo cha kiongozi wa nchi hiyo, Mheshimiwa Rais Bingu wa Mutharika.

Katika salamu zake hizo, Rais Kikwete amemwambia Mheshimiwa Banda kuwa Tanzania imepokea kwa mshtuko na majonzi makubwa taarifa za kifo cha Rais Bingu wa Mutharika ambaye Rais Kikwete amemwelezea kama kiongozi wa karibu na rafiki mkubwa wa Tanzania.

Amesema Rais Kikwete katika salamu hizo, “Sisi katika Tanzania tumepokea taarifa za kifo cha Rais Bingu wa Mutharika kwa mshtuko na majonzi. Alikuwa kiongozi na rafiki wa karibu wa Tanzania na rafiki yangu. Alikuwa kiongozi wa kutumainiwa miongoni mwa nchi wanachama wa Jumuia ya Maendeleo ya Kusini mwa Afrika (SADC) na Bara la Afrika lote.”

Ameongeza Rais Kikwete: “ Kwa hakika, Afrika imempoteza kiongozi imara, aliyeamini katika maslahi ya Bara letu na watu wake. Siku zote tutamkumbuka kwa dhamira yake na moyo wake katika kupigania umoja, amani, utulivu na ustawi wa mataifa yetu mawili na Afrika nzima.”

Kwa niaba ya Serikali na Wananchi wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania na kwa niaba yangu mwenyewe, nakutumia wewe Mheshimiwa, familia ya marehemu na wananchi wote wa Malawi salamu za rambirambi za dhati ya mioyo yetu kufuatia kifo cha ghafla cha Mheshimiwa Rais Bingu wa Mutharika,” amesema Rais Kikwete katika salamu zake.
