Tabora tobacco farmers urged to have a cooperative bank

Spika wa Bunge, Samuel Sitta amesema kuna haja kwa wakulima wa tumbaku mkoani Tabora kuanzisha benki ya ushirika ili iweze kuwakomboa kiuchumi na kijamii.

Amesema kuanzishwa kwa benki hiyo kutakuwa ukombozi kwa wakulima hao na wataondokana na dhana ya utegemezi wa ukopeshaji wa pembejeo kila mwaka.

Kauli hiyo imetolewa na Spika Sitta wakati akifungua Mkutano Mkuu wa Chama cha Wakulima wa Tumbaku Kanda ya Magharibi (Wetcu) mjini hapa.

‘‘Wakulima mtakopeshwa pembejeo hadi lini? Kwani nini msiwe na chombo chenu kitakachoweza kuwakopesha pembejeo na wanunuzi wa tumbaku mkutane kwenye masoko tu,’’ alisema Sitta.

Alisema kwamba wakati sasa umefika wa kuwa na chombo kitakachomsaidia mkulima na kumkopesha ili kampuni zibaki na kazi moja tu ya kununua tumbaku.

Hata hivyo, Sitta akiongelea suala la mazingira alisema kwamba wadau wote wa tumbaku mkoani hapa kuhakikisha kuwa wanapanda miti kwa wingi bila ya kuchoka.

Alisema kwamba iwapo mtu hataki kupanda miti Bodi ya Tumbaku itumie sheria na kanuni zilizopo kumdhibiti na ikiwezekana afutiwe usajili ili asijihusishe tena na kilimo cha tumbaku.Aidha aliongeza kwa kusema kuwa muda mwafaka umefika kwa vyama vya ushirika vya msingi navyo kuwa na mashamba ya mfano ya miti.

There are Local Industries along Mwalimu Nyerere Road toward the Dar es Salaam International Airports that are not friendly to the environments as they cause air pollutions especially over the weekends.

A NATION OF PORTERS’: THE NYAMWEZI AND THE LABOUR MARKET IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY TANZANIA

STEPHEN J. ROCKEL a1

Abstract

 From the beginning of the nineteenth century, Nyamwezi long-distance trading caravans dominated the central routes through Tanzania, stretching from Mrima coast ports such as Bagamoyo and Saadani to Ujiji on Lake Tanganyika. Despite the inroads of Omani Arab and Swahili trading enterprises from the middle of the century, the Nyamwezi maintained a position of strength. In the second half of the nineteenth century, market relations emerged as the dominant form of economic organization along the central routes, although the market for many commodities was clearly fractured by transport difficulties, and non-market relations frequently substituted for weakly developed commercial institutions and tools. Most caravan porters in nineteenth-century Tanzania were free wage workers, and nearly all were clearly migrant or itinerant labourers. The development of a labour market for caravan porters was an early and significant stage in the transition to capitalism, which began in a period of violence and political upheaval. Clearly, this has implications for how scholars should view broader processes of economic transformation prior to the imposition of colonial rule, which cut short a series of significant indigenous innovations.

The argument that porters were mostly wage labourers rests on evidence that their labour was bought and sold according to fluctuating labour market conditions. Market conditions in the second half of the nineteenth century shows a broadly rising demand for porters, a demand that could only be met if caravan operators offered adequate wages and observed the customs established within porter work culture. Thus, market conditions along the central routes contributed to the development of a free wage labour, characterized by a unique labour culture.
