THIS is the second part of our article, whose first part was published last week. The article is intended to be a small contribution to CCM’s traditional exercise of utilizing these anniversary occasions to reflect on its past performance, and on the way forward. In the first part, we discussed the ‘environmental’ factors which have facilitated CCM ‘longevity’ as the ‘ruling party’ in Tanzania.

THE current perception among people from different walks of life that standards in public life, even though beginning to pick up again, have for quite a long time, been in decline, is a timely matter for reflection.

Hello readers, TODAY, I look at the most common injuries that afflict young children. Children’s injuries include dangerous falls from tree canopies, electric shocks in homes and donkey kicks on grazing grounds. Most injuries can be easily prevented if parents and caretakers watch young children carefully. In fact, most parents do not fancy being “lectured” on how to keep their children out of harm’s way.

ONE of the things which proved the might of Odemba Kagose as a great medicine man of Mara Luoland was the incident I am about to relate to you. It should be understood that Odemba was no ordinary person for he was the chief of Luoimbo Chiefdom. And he ruled the division until Tanzania gained its independence and Mwalimu abolished the chiefdoms.
