The government of Tanzania requires schools to teach basic computer lessons but with only 5% of schools having computers, ICT competence remains a mirage. With Tigo’s shot in the arm and other stakeholders’ support, the goal-posts are bound to change and might catapult the government’s resolve to hit the 700-target of schools with internet-connected computers.

Tanzania has a surprisingly solid fiscal outlook. The nation’s GDP has increased by about 7% for the last several years, and its current account deficit is narrowing. It continues to attract more foreign direct investment (FDI) than most of its East African neighbours, with FDI rising 14.5% in 2015 and 61.7% in the last six months alone. It is sitting on 25-30 trillion cubic feet of prime natural gas reserves and 54 billion cubic feet of newly discovered helium. The national debt is around $19.6 billion as of February 2016 – quite manageable for the size and trajectory of the economy. Perhaps the two biggest issues confronting Tanzania’s fiscal and broader economic prospects are the relative lack of FDI in high-growth areas – namely, infrastructure and agriculture.

Analyse: President John Magufuli, who succeeded Mr Jakaya Kikwete as CCM chairman at the weekend, will now have to face on two fronts -- at the national level and within the ruling party. He urged Tanzanians to focus on building the nation, stressing that elections were over and that there was no time for cheap and divisive politics. Magufuli had a political career spanning 20 years before he ascended to the presidency early November last year. He has been much of an outsider in the CCM establishment.

A centuries-old local tradition, called ‘nyumba ntobhu’ or ‘house of women’, has been given a modern revival by members of the Kurya tribe in remote villages in the north of the country. Under the tradition, a woman is permitted to marry a younger woman if she is widowed or her husband chooses to leave her. This means she can keep the family home which is jointly owned with the younger woman, despite a tribal law which dictates that only males can normally inherit property. The younger woman is then able to take a male partner and potentially give birth to male heirs on the older woman's behalf.

Government institutions that use worn-out or dirty national flags together with those who will be walking while the national flag is being raised or lowered shall face fines or an imprisonment term of not less than two years. Most printers don't get it right on the blue colour on the flag. Instead they make it dark blue, which is legally wrong. The Constitution states that it is only the president who has powers to modify the flag.
