Over 41 percent of suicide victims were self-employed while only 7.5 per were un-employed.

Suicides because of 'family problems' (23.7 per cent) and 'illness' (21.0 per cent) combined accounted for 44.7 per cent of total suicides, said the report. The percentage of suicides due to 'property dispute' and 'death of dear person' showed a relatively higher increase of 48.0 per cent and 28.9 per cent respectively. The overall male:female ratio of suicide victims for the year 2009 was 65:35. However, the proportion of boys:girls suicide victims (up to 14 years of age) was 52:48.


Among 25 cities, Jabalpur has reported the highest rate of 41.5 and Kolkata reported the lowest rate at 2.1. The pattern of suicides reported from 35 cities showed that 'hanging' (44.5 per cent), 'poisoning' (20.6 per cent) and 'fire/self-immolation' (12.6 per cent) were the means used the suicide victims in the cities.

Ajari ya Deluxe Coach Kibaha, Marehemu aliteketea akijiona


Mabaki ya miili 12 iliyoteketea kwa moto katika ajali ya basi la Deluxe iliyotokea Kibaha mkoani humo wiki hii wakati wa mazishi. (Picha na Yusuph Badi).


SIMU YAMTAMBULISHA!
WAKATI mabaki ya miili ya watu 12 walioteketea kwa moto katika ajali ya basi la Deluxe yakizikwa jana, mmoja wa abiria waliokufa katika ajali hiyo, Salome Benjamin (24) alitoa simu yake itumike kutoa taarifa kwa ndugu zake.


Salome, mwanafunzi wa Chuo cha Mipango Dodoma, ameelezwa kuwa aliwapa mashuhuda hao simu hiyo na kuwataka wawasiliane na ndugu zake kwamba imeshindikana kwake kuokolewa hivyo wasihangaike.


Akisimulia jana jinsi mwanawe alivyokufa, baba mdogo wa Salome, Michael Isamuhyo alisema shuhuda aliyetumia simu ya mwanawe aliwaeleza kuwa, Salome kabla ya kufa, aliwataka wasihangaike.


Isamuhyo aliyezungumza na gazeti hili, alisema shuhuda huyo aliwaeleza kuwa Salome kabla ya kufa alitokea dirishani upande wa kulia na kupiga kelele ya kuomba msaada.

Shuhuda huyo kwa mujibu wa Isamuhyo, alisema walikwenda kumsaidia lakini walishindwa kwa kuwa alinasa sehemu ya miguu ndani ya basi hilo.


“Shuhuda alituambia kuwa, wakati wanamvuta, walibaini kuwa hawataweza kumuokoa kwa kuwa sehemu ya miguu ilinasa na alipoona hawezi kuokolewa, alirusha simu nje kwa shuhuda huyo.


“Baada ya kutoa simu hiyo, alimtaka atueleze sisi ndugu zake kuwa ameshindikana kuokolewa ili tusihangaike,” alieleza kwa uchungu Isamuhyo.


Baba wa Salome, Benjamin Magige akizungumzia msiba huo alisema; “Nimempoteza mtoto wangu wa pekee wa kike, nimebaki na mdogo wake wa kiume tu, walikuwa wawili pekee, nina uchungu sana.


“(Salome) alikuwa amalize chuo keshokutwa tu, ni maumivu makubwa kwa familia, mama yake kaja lakini hawezi kuzungumza, huu si wakati wa Serikali kufumbia macho ajali hizi, tuumie wote na tuhakikishe zinakoma,” alisema Magige huku akilia.



Maiti hao walizikwa katika makaburi yaliyochimbwa kwa kuambatana katika eneo la Air Msae walipozikwa abiria 25 waliokufa katika ajali ya basi ya Air Msae mwaka 1999, umbali wa kilometa takribani 10 kutoka ilipotokea ajali hiyo.

Barrick not liked by local communities


AFRICA Barrick Gold (ABG) has no 'social' licence to operate North Mara Gold Mine, Energy and Minerals Parliamentary Committee Chairman, January Makamba declared here on Wednesday citing endless conflicts between the Canadian investor and surrounding communities.


"You are not liked here. You may have a legal licence to operate this mine but you don't have a social licence to operate it," Mr Makamba told the North Mara Gold Mine's top management shortly after meeting local leaders and artisanal miners from the villages located near the mine.


He challenged the mine to find lasting solutions on issues that have contributed to worsen its relationship with the surrounding villagers.


This was the first time for the Energy and Minerals Parliamentary Committee members to visit the troubled mine after the 2010 general elections.


North Mara Mine General Manager, Mr Basie Maree, said various initiatives were now put in place to improve relationship between the mine and surrounding villages.


"For example, we have spent 350,000 US dollars to upgrade a hospital here and we have donated an anaesthetic machine to the regional hospital.


"We are doing a lot of things not because we have to do but because we want to and the villagers have welcomed the new initiatives," the GM told the visiting parliamentary committee.


Local leaders and villagers have hailed Mr Maree, saying that he is the first general manager to show commitment to end conflicts between them and the mining company.


The parliamentary committee also expressed disappointment by absence of ABG senior staff from Dar es Salaam to respond to some of their questions during their visit at the mine which is located in the Northern Tarime District, Mara Region.


"We are very disappointed by the absence of senior management of ABG. We are not happy and we are going to take this matter to parliament," Mr Makamba said.

RIGHT TO BE RICH

RIGHT TO BE RICH
The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing things in a certain way, and those who do things in this certain way — whether on purpose or accidentally — get rich, while those who do not do things in this certain way — no matter how hard they work or how able they are — remain poor.
