    70 percent of Tanzania's population is under 30 years old.

    Come on now, where does the media need to be broadcasting and listening?

    Surprising, shocking? Sad? I am not quite sure… We just have to take matters into our own hands.

    Me personally naomba mungu anisaidie na kuniongoza kwenye juhudi zangu..walau hiyo 14% iwe 50% in my lifetime…

    Hizi statistics ni za ukweli? Hasa kuhusu 58% under a dollar a day.

    Ujue ni ngumu sana kutafsiri takwimu. Wengi wetu tutaziangalia na kuzipinga au kuzikataa kabisa. Lakini kulikuwa na sensa miaka ya hivi karibuni. Pia, binafsi naamini haziwezi kuwa 'far off' – angalau kuna ile "trend" sahihi. Hasi au chanya? Inategemea unaziangaliaje.

    Kuhusu 58% under a dollar a day, huwa tunajaribu kuwakumbusha wanaotuletea hizi takwimu kuwa wanatulinganisha na nchi za Magharibi. Ile mihogo ya kule Kilwa haiwezi kugharimu zaidi ya sh. 500. Maharage anayokula mtu mmoja kule Mbeya hayawezi kuzidi sh 500 kwa siku…

    Itakuwa vizuri watu wa TEDxDar wakitupa maelezo zaidi (kuhusu upatikanaji wa hizi takwimu).
