Original Komedy, is the Comedy group that broadcast the program in TBC1-Tanzania. This group is coming with the slogan of cleaning Dar es salaam, they call that slogan ‘fair play” and they are starting cleaning Tandale Mtogole, Kwatumbo and Popobawa on Tuestday. I feel so happy to have Tandale selected for the start of the slogan.
Nguzo ya umeme imeanguka na kuhatarisha maisha ya wakazi na wafanya bishara wa maeneo haya
Nguzo hii ambayo iko katika mtaa wa Pakacha na Sokoni imeanguka usiku wa kuamkia leo na hadi sasa hakuna taratibu zozote zilichukuliwa na TANESCO ili kuitoa nguzo hii kwani ina hatarisha maisha ya watu wanaoakaa maeneo haya pamoja na wafanyakazi na wapita njia, njia ni kubwa na inatumiwa na watu wengi wanaoenda katika soko la tandale kutafuta bidhaa.
TUNAOMBA TANESCO WAFANYE HIMA ILI KUIONDOA TATIZO HILI

Today i found one road in Tandale have been cleaned ready to be constructed. This has been done by Kinondoni Municipality by destructing all the buildings that are withing road areas. This is a beginning of the process to construct different road in Tandale so that to have accessible road network. The road that have cleaned connects Tandale and Kinondoni-Mwananyamala.
Today we had a visit in Tandale where different organization including Kinu, BORDA, The World Bank and people from Dar es Salaam City Council. The aim of the visit is to get explanation of the ongoing construction of Toilets, Bridge and showing how the solid wastes has drained out from the River. Also to show on the coming project of placing the solid waste collection points in Mtogole sub-ward and Mtogole sub-ward. Constructing these toilets is to give the example of how the real toilets for the single residential house and school toilets should be. This may give other community and private companies example on how it should be constructed and managed especially in Informal area like Tandale.
Tandale community feels so happy to have the real implemented projects in their area especially if it solves their problems. But one thing is that Tandale community needs to be involved in every project that implemented to their area so that to let the community themselves feels that the project is theirs.
The following are the pictures taken in that visit.
Leo Tandale imetembelewa na wageni kutoka sehemu mbalimbali ikiwemo Benki ya Dunia pamoja na mashirika mengine. Ugeni huu umehusisha wataaram wa aina tatu nao ni:- Watu wa GIS (Geographical Information System), watu wa Information Technology (IT) pamoja na watu wa Journalism. Thumuni kubwa la ugeni huo lilikuwa ni kujua hali halisi ya vyoo katika eneo la Tandale na kujua njia wanazozitumia viongozi wa tandale ili kupata taarifa kutoka kwa wananchi wao ili kutafuta ufumbuzi wa matatizo yanayotokea. Ugeni huo ulitembea ofisi ya Mtaa wa Mkunduge na kuelezewa hali halisi ilivyo mtaani hapo ambapo baadae walitembelea eneo hilo ili kujionea hali halisi ya vyoo. Ugeni huo ni kukamilisha maandalizi ya mashindano yanayotegemewa kufanyika nchi nyingi ikiwemo Tanzania lengo likiwa kutafuta ufumbuzi wa matatizo yanatokana na vyoo.
On 2nd September,2012 I had a meeting with Tandale community (participants of reporting) aimed at finding out what does the community think about this project and the discussion on the way forward to improve the reporting in Tandale. Actually the meeting was successful because I just called all members even those who are not active in the reporting and I had 5 people attended. Also the community participated well and openly especially on the comments for the improvement of the whole project, so at least I captured the thought from them about this project although I was faced with the BIG QUESTION from them that HOW are they going to benefit from the project.
The big issue is that there are many projects, researches, studies, government, ect that are always pass to Tandale informal settlement (them), sometimes they even ask the questionnaires and there are many promises which are always come from those projects which most of them are not implemented, so the community was asking me on the actual benefit from this project as for now they are doing reporting as volunteers with no payments.
Another big issue from the meeting is that, when this project started, every day the participants (community) were given money for refreshments of about 3000 Tsh but now there is no any refreshment which lead them not participating fully although they like doing it because they say they use time doing reporting which may not help them (affected by the promises)
Although they had those two big issues, I have tried to encourage them that this project will work out one day where the reports will be seen to every place in Dar es salaam, up countries and outside Tanzania and they will get the solution to the problems they are reporting. I think they have agreed to still do the reporting but I have realized that they were expecting some things from the project although they didn’t say it before.
Later after the discussion of the above issues, the community agreed on the meeting day and they have also agreed that I will start train them on the coming Sunday. They were even sorry the way I am suffering calling through mobile each one of them every time they face problems, they have told me if I have the problem of fair I should ask them and they will make contribution (transport money). Also they have agreed to make contribution on the internet bundle, so they will not depend to CCI again who were giving them money for the internet.

Watu kutoka maeneo ya Kinondoni leo wameleta maji kuwauzia wananchi wa Tandale kwatumbo. Njia wanayoitumia kutoa maji hayo ni kuunganisha mipira ya maji kutoka Kinondoni na kusambaza katika nyumba zinazohitaji maji ikiwa ndoo kubwa inauzwa shilingi 150 na ndoo ndogo inauzwa shilingi 100. Ila mabomba hayo yanapitishwa sehemu isiyo salama.
