Februari 6 kila mwaka ni siku ya Kimataifa ya kupinga Ukeketaji. Kihistoria siku hii ilianza kuadhimishwa mwaka 2003 baada ya Baraza la Umoja wa Mataifa kuidhinisha rasmi maadhimisho ya kupinga Ukeketaji duniani.
Maadhimisho ya mwaka huu yanaongozwa na kauli mbiu isemayo: Nguvu ya vijana katika kumaliza ukeketaji. Ripoti ya Utafiti wa Demografia na Afya hapa nchini ( TDHS 2016) inaonyesha kuwa wanawake wengi wanaokeketwa wana umri wa kati ya miaka 15 na 49 ikimaanisha kuwa vijana ndio waathirika wakubwa wa tatizo hili.
Hivyo basi katika kuadhimisha siku hii Chama cha Wahabari Wanawake Tanzania (TAMWA) kinahimiza ushiriki wa vijana katika kumaliza au kupunguza vitendo vya ukeketaji nchini.
TAMWA inawahimiza vijana kukataa kuwa watunza siri za matukio ya ukeketaji bali watoe elimu juu ya athari za ukeketaji pamoja na kufichua matukio hayo yanapopangwa katika maeneo wanayoishi.
Sasa umefika wakati wa vijana kupinga ukeketaji kwa nguvu zote ili kutokomeza vitendo hivi.
Chama cha Wanahabari Wanawake Tanzania (TAMWA) kinampongeza Rais John Magufuli kwa kuzungumza kwa uwazi na kukemea suala la ongezeko la mimba kwa wanafunzi mkoani Rukwa.
Rais Magufuli ambaye yupo ziarani mkoani Rukwa amesema kwa takwimu alizonazo, kulikuwa na wanafunzi 229 waliopata mimba mkoani humo mwaka jana pekee.
Mkurugenzi wa Chama Cha Wanahabari Wanawake (TAMWA) aliyemaliza muda wake, Edda Sanga, amepewa tuzo ya heshima ikiwa ni sehemu ya kutambua mchango wake katika Asasi za kiraia. Tuzo hiyo imetolewa leo na Mtandao wa Jinsia Tanzania(TGNP), wakati wa tamasha la 14 la Jinsia.
“Nimefurahi kupokea tuzo hiyo nawashukuru sana na kuwapongeza pia wale ambao wameona nimestahili kupokea tuzo hiyo,” Amesema Edda Sanga. Pia amewataka wengine waliopata tuzo hiyo kuendeleza mapambano ya kumkomboa mtoto wa kike, kumlinda na kumpa haki yake.
TAMWA tunampongeza Edda Sanga kwa kutwaa tuzo hii adhimu na pia tunawapongeza TGNP Mtandao kwa kuona umuhimu wa kuandaa tuzo hizi.
Chama cha Wanahabari Wanawake Tanzania,(TAMWA), tumepokea kwa masikitiko kifo cha mmiliki wa kampuni za IPP nchini, Dk Reginald Mengi ambaye pia alikuwa mwenyekiti wa wamiliki wa vyombo vya habari MOAT.
Kifo hiki ni pigo kubwa kwa tasnia ya habari nchini, pia kwa jamii ya Watanzania hasa kwa watu wenye ulemavu.
Dk Mengi ameacha alama katika tasnia ya habari kwa kuanzisha vyombo vya habari na alibeba dhamana ya kuwa mlezi kwa wanahabari nchini, na alileta heshima katika tasnia hii nchini.
Atakumbukwa kwa mchango wake mkubwa katika tuzo za umahiri wa habari za Ejat hasa katika maudhui kuhusu watu wenye ulemavu, ambako amekuwa akidhamini tuzo hizo.
Atakumbukwa kwa upendo wake mkubwa kwa wenye ulemavu. Dk Mengi amekuwa muumini mzuri wa masuala ya usawa wa kijisia katika taasisi zake ambapo ametoa nafasi za ajira na za uongozi kwa wanawake na wanaume.
Pia Dk Mengi alikuwa ni miongoni mwa viongozi wa Shirikisho la wenye Viwanda nchini.
Dk Mengi alikuwa na ndoto nyingi, mojawapo ni ya kushirikiana na serikali kutokomeza umaskini kama alivyoandika kwenye ukurasa wake wa twitter Machi 19, ''Ndoto yangu ni kushirikiana na serikali kutokomeza kabisa umaskini Tanzania''
Ulale salama Dk Mengi, tutaendelea kuyaishi maneno yako kwa mfano nukuu yake ya Januari 7 aliyotuma kupitia mtandao wake wa twitter akisema: ''Kwa unyenyekevu ninawashauri watanzania wenzangu kuufanya mwaka 2019 kuwa mwaka wa upatanisho na msamaha, chuki ni mzigo mzito kuubeba mioyoni mwetu, kupendana ni njia peee ya kusonga mbele''.
Pumzika kwa amani Dk Mengi.
