"DECI" YAMPELEKA MADOFE JELA MIAKA 150

Bernard Madoff gets maximum 150 years in prison

NEW YORK – Convicted swindler Bernard Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison Monday for fraud so extensive that the judge said he needed to send a symbolic message to those who might imitate his fraud and to victims who need relief.

Applause broke out in the crowded Manhattan courtroom after U.S. District Judge Denny Chin issued the maximum sentence to the 71-year-old defendant, who said he sought no forgiveness and knew he must live "with this pain, this torment, for the rest of my life."

Chin rejected a request by Madoff's lawyer for leniency and said he disagreed that victims of the fraud were seeking mob vengeance.

"Here the message must be sent that Mr. Madoff's crimes were extraordinarily evil and that this kind of manipulation of the system is not just a bloodless crime that takes place on paper, but one instead that takes a staggering toll," Chin said.

The judge said the estimate that Madoff has cost his victims more than $13 billion was conservative because it did not include money from feeder funds.

"Objectively speaking, the fraud here was staggering," he said.

TAHADHARI-- SWINE FLU IN KENYA!

Alert over Kenya's first case of H1N1 flu

Minister for Public Health and Sanitation Beth Mugo addresses the media in Nairobi.

Kenya's health officials have stepped-up surveillance at airports and other points of entry following the confirmation of the first H1N1 flu case in the country.

On Monday, Public Health and Sanitation minister Beth Mugo said tests carried out on samples of a 20-year-old British student at the Kenya Medical Research Institute and National Influenza Centre had tested positive for Influenza A (H1N1) popularly known as swine flu.

The student, who was in group of 34 British students, arrived in Kenya via Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on June 21. On arrival, the student and his colleagues, later travelled by bus to Kisumu where they are undertaking field studies.

“Two days later on arrival in Kisumu, the medical student developed a headache and joint pains where his samples were taken at a local facility before they were flown to Nairobi for testing on Sunday,” Mrs Mugo said.

Familia iliyoteketea kwa Moto Dar yaagwa,

Vifo hivi kwa Familia ya Grayson Naftari vyatufunza nini wakazi wa jiji?
Baadhi ya waombolezaji wakipita kutoa heshima za mwisho kwa miili ya marehemu watano wa familia moja waliokufa kwa ajali ya moto mwishoni mwa wiki jijini.
Mavyuma haya yaliyowekwa kwa nia njema ya kuzuia wezi na vibaka kuingia ndani kiurahisi na kukwapua mali za wenye nyumba (na ukizingatia Manzese ilivyomaarufu kwa vibaka) lakini vimekuwa pia ni kikwazo kwa wasamalia wema na majirani kuingia na kuwaokoa wakti wa moto huo ulipozuka na pia vikawa ni kikwazo hata kwa wao wenyewe kuweza kujiokoa hata kujikuta wakifa huku wakijiona. MUNGU WALAZA MAHALA PEMA PEPONI. AMEN!
Watu watano wa familia moja, akiwamo mtoto wa mwaka mmoja, wamekufa kwa kuteketea na moto uliozuka ghafla usiku wa kuamkia jana katika nyumba Manzese, Dar es Salaam. Kamanda wa Polisi wa Mkoa wa Kinondoni, Mark Kalunguyeye, akizungumza na waandishi wa habari Dar es Salaam jana, alisema moto huo ulizuka saa saba usiku katika nyumba ya mkazi wa Ndugumbi-Mpakani, Manzese, Grayson Naftali (64) na kuua watu wote watano waliokuwa wamelala ndani.
Alisema vyumba viwili kati ya vinne viliungua na mali zote za ndani pamoja na marehemu, akiwamo Naftali ambaye ni mstaafu wa Chama cha Wafanyakazi wa Kampuni ya Reli Tanzania (TRL). Kamanda Kalunguyeye aliwataja wengine waliokuwamo ni Modesta Marapole (55) ambaye ni mke wa Naftali, msichana wa kazi aliyejulikana kwa jina moja Tabasamu (20), Clementiana Dawani (12) mwanafunzi wa darasa la sita wa shule ya Msingi Ndugumbi na mtoto wa mwaka mmoja, Lagano Richard.
Clementiana na Lagano ni wajukuu wa Naftali. Kwa mujibu wa Kamanda, chanzo cha moto huo ni hitilafu ya umeme ambayo inasemekana ilianzia katika soketi ya televisheni na kusambaa katika vyumba na watu waliokuwa ndani kukutwa na mauti. Alisema moto huo ulizimwa na majirani na kikosi cha Zimamoto na watu waliokuwa ndani walikutwa tayari wameungua na kufa. zaidi soma habarileo

Mazishi ya MJ bado kitendawili,

Mazishi ya Mfalme Wacko Jacko bado ni kitendawili vile yatakavyokuwa au mahala ambapo atazikwa, japo kuna uwezekano akazikwa katika kasri yake au ranchi ya ekari 2, 700 alipokuwa akiishi.
Wengi wanatarajia kuwa uenda yakazidi hata yale ya Princess Diana.

How will his family memorialize Michael Jackson— a small private service, a huge public funeral, a series of splashy public celebrations around the globe or some combination? The arrangements are as unclear as the cause of the pop star's unexpected death four days ago.

Jackson's father, Joe Jackson, said Sunday that the family was still working on funeral arrangements and had nothing to announce yet. "I'm glad this is happening now," the elder Jackson said as he arrived on the red carpet for the BET Awards in Los Angeles, "but (the world) should have saluted him when he was living."
