Members of Parliament yesterday demanded a thorough explanation from the government over the drastic fall in inflation that does not have impact on people’s lives. Debating the government budget estimates tabled last week by the Minister for Finance, Dr William Mgimwa, lawmakers said government statistics on inflation have been confusing the public. The MPs’ query came at the time when Tanzania’s inflation is at 8.3 percent from 19 percent in December last year. “We have been hearing about the drastic fall in inflation, but nothing is happening on the ground. We want thorough explanation as to why the situation is like this,” queried Dr Festus Limbu (Magu Urban, CCM). “Even for an ordinary man on the street, this is very...

London — TANZANIA says it has made capacity building its priority to ensure that the massive discoveries of oil and gas reserves in the country are gainfully utilised. President Jakaya Kikwete told the G8 pre-Summit event here on Saturday that the government was investing in human resources to produce enough and competent personnel to manage the sector. "One of the things we are quite keen on is to build our own capacity to regulate the sector," Mr Kikwete told his audience. "We are also building capacity to be able to negotiate contracts. We have the likes of British Gas, Statoil... all these are major companies. So the challenge is how we build capacity to negotiate by our lawyers, geologists and...

JOHANNESBURG — The desk is spotless and books neatly line the shelves in Nelson Mandela's office at a Johannesburg-based foundation that carries his name, but the former South African president and anti-apartheid leader hasn't worked there for years. The meticulously preserved room is one of many tributes to the legacy of a former prisoner who became so revered for his efforts to reconcile a racially divided nation that many South Africans cannot bring themselves to speak openly about the possibility of his death. That reluctance is gradually eroding as the 94-year-old receives treatment for a recurring lung infection, spending a fourth day in a Pretoria hospital on Tuesday. President Jacob Zuma called Mandela's condition "very serious" but said he has...

JOHANNESBURG, June 11, 2013 (AFP) - Nelson Mandela was spending his fourth day in hospital Tuesday where he was being treated in intensive care for a lung infection. The 94-year-old former president was rushed to a Pretoria hospital early Saturday and was said to be in serious but stable condition. His latest health scare has been met with prayers and a growing acceptance among South Africans that their hero may be nearing the end of his life. "He is receiving intensive care treatment," presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj, who served jail time with Mandela, told AFP on Monday. He "remains in hospital, and his condition is unchanged," the presidency said after describing him as being in a "serious but stable" condition...

The European Union (EU) Delegation to Tanzania has said it is impressed by the efforts of East African Community member states to create a single currency union and has encouraged them to implement it. The statement was made on Monday in Dar es Salaam by EU head of Delegation to Tanzania and East Africa, Sebrogondi Geriani shortly after launch of the Europe Week activities that are currently taking place. “We are impressed by EAC’s commitment to going forward to create a single currency and we support them in this pursuit,” he said.

Africa's brisk economic growth over the past decade has been consumer driven, a much-hyped trend that masks the uncomfortable fact that the region remains far too reliant on commodities. Sub-Saharan Africa's growth has been second only to Asia and cracked along at 5.8 percent last year, according to a World Bank estimate, if South Africa, the continent's biggest economy, is excluded. About two-thirds of growth in the past decade has been driven by domestic demand, which has been stoked by a number of factors including the continent's fast-growing and young population. Consumption has had multiplier effects into a range of services including banking and finance. Yet unlike in Asia, Africa's consumer boom has been financed mostly by income generated from...
