PRESS RELEASE (41)

Arusha Stakeholders of 2015 General Elections have urged media to increase their reporting of women aspirants/candidates in the future elections. The stakeholders attending workshop to disseminate media analysis report of 2015 General Elections produced by TAMWA under the support of UN Women said that most media outlets failed to report enough stories on women aspirants/candidates because they were more business oriented, hence their coverage focused on what would sale most.   The stakeholders also pointed out that some journalists demanded financial payment and other forms of favour from some of women aspirants/candidates to get their stories reported something which most women aspirants/candidates were not willing to give. In another observation they said that most women aspirants/candidates did not get enough media coverage because they lacked enough media engagement skills.   They suggested that to address the challenges of women aspirants/candidates less media coverage in the future, trainings should be conducted to Tanzania Editors Forums (TEF), Tanzania Press Clubs’ representatives from each region (both male and female), Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority, media owners and Media Council of Tanzania to support women aspirants/candidates in the future elections. They also suggested continuing with joint seminars/dialogues between the media and politicians to create platforms for networking and building better relations. The workshop held on 23rd December 2016 which brought 28 participants (17 female, 11 male) was attended by journalists, editors, bloggers, former candidates and elected leaders.

Wadau wa Uchaguzi Mkuu 2015 mkoani Arusha wamevitaka vyombo vya habari kuripoti zaidi masuala ya watangaza nia au wagombea wanawake katika chaguzi zijazo nchini.  Wadau waliohudhuria warsha ya kujadili ripoti ya tathmini ya jinsi vyombo vya habari vilivyoripoti habari za wanawake wakati wa uchaguzi mkuu 2015 iliyotolewa na TAMWA kwa msaada wa shirika la wanawake la Umoja wa Mataifa (UN Women) walisema kuwa vyombo vingi vya habari vilishindwa kuripoti habari za watangaza nia ama wagombea wanawake kutokana na kujikita zaidi katika biashara, na hivyo kuripoti zaidi habari wanazoona zinauzika zaidi wakati wa uchaguzi.   Wadau pia walisema kuwa baadhi ya wanahabari walitaka kupewa malipo ya aina fulani kutoka kwa baadhi ya watangaza nia au wagombea wanawake ili kuripoti habari zao jambo ambalo watangaza nia au wagombea hao wanawake walishindwa kulitekeleza. Pia walisema kuwa watangaza nia au wagombea wengi wanawake hawakupata nafasi kubwa kwenye vyombo vya habari kutokana na kukosa maarifa ya kutosha ya jinsi ya kutumia vyombo vya habari.   Walipendekeza ili kuondokana na changamoto hizo katika siku zijazo, kunapaswa kutolewa mafunzo ya kutosha kwa Jukwaa la Wahariri (TEF), Wawakilishi wa Klabu za Waandishi wa Habari Tanzania (wanawake na wanaume) kutoka mikoa yote, Mamlaka ya Mawasiliano Tanzania, Baraza la Habari Tanzania, Wamiliki wa Vyombo vya Habari Tanzania ili kuunga mkono watangaza nia au wagombea wanawake katika chaguzi zijazo. Pia walipendekeza kuendelea na warsha za pamoja kati ya vyombo vya habari na wanasiasa kujenga majukwaa ya kimtandao na kujenga mahusiano mazuri. Warsha ilifanyika Disemba 23 2016 na kuhudhuriwa na washiriki 28 (wanawake 17, wanaume 11) kutoka makundi ya waandishi wa habari, wahariri, waandishi wa blogu, watangaza nia, wagombea na viongozi wa kisiasa.

Chama cha Wanahabari Wanawake nchini – TAMWA kinaungana na mashirika yanayotetea haki za binadamu hasa wanawake na watoto ulimwenguni kusherekea siku ya wanawake duniani ambayo huadhimishwa tarehe 8 mwezi Machi kila mwaka.   Kauli mbiu kitaifa mwaka huu ni “Tanzania ya Viwanda: Mwanamke ni Msingi wa Mabadiliko Kiuchumi” ambayo inatutaka wote tushiriki kikamilifu katika kuleta mabadiliko ya mitazamo, fikra na matarajio ya kimaendeleo hasa kwa wanawake. Aidha kauli mbiu ya mwaka huu inatazamia serikali na wanasheria kuboresha sera na sheria ili ziweze kuleta uwezo wa ustawi na kuwawezesha wanawake wawe na uwezo wa kufikia mabadiliko yao ndani ya familia  na kuleta usawa katika maamuzi .   Inakadriwa kuwa duniani kote ni asilimia 50 tu ya wanawake ambao wanajishugulisha na kazi rasmi ikilinganishwa na asilimia 76 ya wanaume. Aidha kazi nyingi ambazo zimekuwa zikifanywa na wanawake ni za hali ya chini na zinawaingizia kipato duni.   TAMWA inaamini kuwa azma ya nchi ya kuipeleka Tanzania katika uchumi wa kati na viwanda  itafikiwa endapo haki ya elimu kwa mtoto wa kike itapewa kipaumbele na kuhakikisha sera na sheria kandamizi kwa wanawamke na watoto wa kike zitarekebishwa na kuwezesha ushirikishwaji wa wanawake katika ngazi mbalimbali za uongozi na maamuzi.   Maadhimisho ya Siku ya Wanawake Duniani yana lengo la kuwezesha jamii kupima utekelezaji wa maazimio, matamko, mikataba na itifaki mbalimbali za Kimataifa/ kikanda  na kitaifa zinazohusu masuala ya maendeleo ya jinsia na wanawake katika kuhakikisha haki za wanawake kiuchumi, kijamii, na kisiasa zinapatikana na zinalidwa.   Edda Sanga Mkurugenzi Mtendaji
