Simba Sports Club chairman Ismail Aden Rage plans to vie for the Tabora Urban parliamentary seat through the ruling party, CCM, ticket.

Rage becomes the second sports personality to declare his intention to contest in the October general election after the TFF secretary general, Fredrick Mwakalebela, did so recently. Briefing reporters yesterday, the newly elected Simba chairman said he had fitting strategies that would help develop the Tabora Urban constituency.

Rage dives into politics for the second time after his futile bid in 2000 when CCM cleared Siraju Kaboyonga to vie for the seat. “I still believe that I won the race in 2000, but they didn’t include me in the final list, hopefully, this time around I’ll make it, ” said Rage who is also the chairman of Tabora’s Tanzania Parents Association.

The former player of Cosmopolitans hinted: “I’ve better plans for Tabora residents and one of them is to empower all social groups, which will serve as a catalyst in the process of alleviating abject poverty.” Rage boasts a wide experience having served as the TFF’s second vice president, secretary general of the now defunct Tanzania Football Association (FAT) and Dar es Salaam Regional Football Association (DRFA). Meanwhile; Rage announced Evadus Mtawala to be the club’s interim administrative officer. According to him, Mtawala will hold the position for three-month probation.

Dear Wife, Partners, Girlfriends 

1. From 11 June to 10 July 2010, you should read the sports section of the newspaper so that you are aware
of what is going on regarding the World Cup, and that way you will be able to join in the conversations. If you fail to do this, then you will be looked at in a bad way, or you will be totally ignored. DO NOT complain about not receiving any attention. 

2. During the World Cup, the television is mine, at all times, without any exceptions. If you even take a glimpse of the remote control, you will lose it (your eye). 

3. If you have to pass by in front of the TV during a game, I don’t mind, as long as you do it crawling on the floor and without distracting me. If  you decide to stand nude in front of the TV, make sure you put clothes on right after because if you catch a cold, I won’t have time to take you to the doctor or look after you during the World Cup month. 

4. During the games I will be blind, deaf and mute, unless I require a refill of my drink or something to eat. You are out of your mind if you expect me to listen to you, open the door, answer the telephone, or pick up the baby that just fell on the floor….It won’t happen. 

5. It would be a good idea for you to keep at least 2 six packs in the fridge at all times, as well as plenty of things to nibble on, and please do not make any funny faces to my friends when they come over to watch the games. In return, you will be allowed to use the TV between 12am and 6am, unless they replay a good game that I missed during the day. 

6. Please, please, please!! If you see me upset because one of my teams is losing, DO NOT say “get over it, it’s only a game”, or “don’t worry, they’ll win next time”. If you say these things, you will only make me angrier and I will love you less. Remember, you will never ever know more about football than me and your so called “words of encouragement” will only lead to a break up or divorce. 

7. You are welcome to sit with me to watch one game and you can talk to me during halftime but only when the commercials are on, and only if the halftime scores is pleasing me. In addition, please note I am saying “one” game; hence do not use the World Cup as a nice cheesy excuse to “spend time together”. 

8. The replays of the goals are very important. I don’t care if I have seen them or I haven’t seen them, I want to see them again. Many times. 

9. Tell your friends NOT to have any babies, or any other child related parties or gatherings that requires my attendance because:
a) I will not go,
b) I will not go, and
c) I will not go. 

10. But, if a friend of mine invites us to his house on a Sunday to watch a game, we will be there in a flash. 

11. The daily World Cup highlights show on TV every night is just as important as the games themselves. Do not even think about saying “but you have already seen this…why don’t you change the channel to something we can all watch?” because, the reply will be, “Refer to Rule #2 of this list”. 

12. And finally, please save your expressions such as “Thank God the World Cup is only every 4 years”. I am immune to these words, because after this comes the Champions League, Italian League, Spanish League, Premier League, FA Cup, etc. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
