Coming Soon: Daraja Juu ya Mto Nile (English Edition)





The book titled: DARAJA JUU YA MTO NILE authored by Mark Mwandosya, was published in 2015. The publication of the book in kiswahili was aimed at, among other reasons, the promotion of the use of kiswahili, a national language of Tanzania, and Kenya, and a language widely spoken in Eastern Africa and beginning to spread across Africa and other continents.
Yet english, as a language is more widely spoken and indeed the "kiswahili of the world". Calls have been made for the book to be translated into english, and the author has obliged. For the subject of transboundary watercourses is as topical as it is current. The River Nile is no exception.
The book: BRIDGE ACROSS THE RIVER NILE is with the printers and should be out in a few weeks.

A Letter to Comrade Martin Thembisile (Chris) Hani

April 10, 2018
Comrade Chris, To an ordinary mortal it would seem odd that I should communicate with you, us being worlds apart. To a Christian, such as I am, and to you, born a Catholic, being a committed member of the South African Communist Party (SACP), notwithstanding, the belief in and notion of life in the world after comes naturally. Furthermore, very African as both of us are, we firmly believe in the presence in our midst, of the souls of the departed, residing in, among other places, the hills and mountains, the valleys, the pristine forests and woods, and in our homes, among other beauties mother nature has endowed mother Africa. I therefore have no hesitation whatsoever in undertaking this mission of communicating with you Comrade Hani, coming as it does, on the 25th anniversary of your departure.
The chilly southern hemispherical autumn Easter Saturday of 10th of April, 1993, was the longest day in the final struggle for th…

A Letter from Lake Ngozi (Lake Ngosi)

A Letter from Lake Ngozi (Lake Ngosi)
By: Mark Mwandosya, Emmanuel Mwandosya and Lucy Akiiki Mwandosya
22 November 2018
After an exhaustive two hour climb of a mountain, traversing through the thick canopy of the Poroto Mountains from the Rungwe District side of the crater, suddenly, in the midst of the tropical equatorial type vegetation we got a glimpse of what seemed to be a lake. Sure enough as our guide Saidi would remark, we were approaching Lake Ngozi, also referred to as Lake Ngosi, a crater lake in the southern part of the Eastern African Rift System, We had another 30 minutes of trekking before we could reach the observation point. Before us unfolded one of the most spectacular sights that Almighty God can bless anyone to observe, paradise on earth, crater Lake Ngozi in all its majesty. We will return to Lake Ngozi later on in the sequel.
Our memorable trip to Lake Ngozi started early in the morning of Monday 12 November 2018, from our Matema Beach residence on the shore of…

Naanza kwa kuishukuru Mamlaka ya Uteuzi kwa kuniwezesha kuwa Mkuu wa Chuo Kikuu cha Sayansi na Teknolojia Mbeya kuanzia 2014 mpaka 2018. Aidha nawapongeza, Mhe. Pius Msekwa na Mhe. Zakia Meghji, kwa uteuzi wao kuwa Mkuu wa Chuo, na Mwenyekiti wa Baraza la Chuo, mtawalia. Nawatakia kila la heri katika ulezi na usimamizi wa Chuo.
Pili, ingawa nauita ushauri, kwa kweli ni ujumbe wa shukrani kwa Mamlaka ya Uteuzi na maelezo mafupi kuhusu uzoefu mdogo nilioupata nikiwa Mkuu wa Chuo Mwanzilishi wa Chuo Kikuu cha Sayansi na Teknolojia Mbeya (MUST). Kwani nitawezaje kutoa ushauri kwa Mkuu wa Chuo ambaye muda wake mrefu wa utumishi wake kwa Umma amekuwa katika maendeleo ya elimu ya juu, akiwa Makamu Mkuu Mwanzilishi wa Chuo Kikuu cha Dar es Salaam, na Spika wa Bunge la Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania. Kwa maana hiyo MUST itafaidika pia kutokana na uzoefu na utumishi wa muda mrefu katika ngazi za …
