Kenya Bans Tanzanian Tour Operators From Its Parks, Airports (K24 Kenya) - 6th February 2015



A diplomatic row is brewing between Kenya and Tanzania after Nairobi withdrew a three-week reprieve for Tanzanian tour operators to access the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. This is after talks between the two countries failed to broker an agreement on a 1985 bilateral agreement which prevents tour vans from both countries from accessing national parks and airports on either side. And as Salome Muiruri reports, the latest spat between the two neighbours poses a fresh threat to the east african community integration process.

UAMUZI WA SERIKALI YA KENYA KUZUIA MAGARI YA KITALII YALIYOSAJILIWA TANZANIA KUINGIA UWANJA WA NDEGE WA KIMATAIFA WA JOMO KENYATTA KWA AJILI YA KUCHUKUA NA KUSHUSHA WATALII


JAMHURI YA MUUNGANO WA TANZANIA
WIZARA YA USHIRIKIANO WA AFRIKA MASHARIKI

TAARIFA KWA VYOMBO VYA HABARI



UAMUZI WA SERIKALI YA KENYA KUZUIA MAGARI YA KITALII YALIYOSAJILIWA TANZANIA KUINGIA UWANJA WA NDEGE WA KIMATAIFA WA JOMO KENYATTA KWA AJILI YA KUCHUKUA NA KUSHUSHA WATALII

Tarehe 22 Desemba, 2014, Serikali ya Jamhuri ya Kenya ilitoa amri ya kuzuia magari ya kitalii yenye usajili wa Tanzania kwenda kuchukua na kushusha watalii wanaotumia uwanja wa ndege wa kimataifa wa Jomo Kenyatta wakiwa njiani kuja kutembelea vivutio vya utalii katika Jamhuri ya Muungano ya Tanzania. 

Baada ya uamuzi huu wa Serikali ya Kenya, Waziri wa Maliasii na Utalii Mhe. Lazaro Nyalandu alifanya majadiliano na Waziri wa masuala ya utalii wa Serikali ya Kenya siku ya tarehe 16, Januari, 2015 ili kutafuta ufumbuzi wa kadhia hii. Matokeo ya mkutano wa Mawaziri hawa yalikuwa ni kusitishwa kwa muda katazo lililotolewa na Serikali ya Kenya kwa makubaliano kuwa yafanyike mazungumzo baina ya pande hizi mbili ndani ya kipindi cha wiki tatu kuanzia tarehe 16 Januari, 2015 ili kurekebisha Mkataba wa Ushirikiano katika sekta ya utalii wa mwaka 1985 kati ya nchi zetu mbili.

Kufuatia makubaliano hayo Wizara ya Maliasili na Utalii iliiomba Wizara ya Ushirikiano wa Afrika ya Mashariki iandae kikao hicho cha pamoja katika muda uliopangwa. Kwa kuzingatia historia na uzito wa suala lenyewe, Wizara ya Ushirikiano wa Afrika ya Mashariki iliona umuhimu wa kuhusisha Wizara zingine husika za Uchukuzi, Mambo ya Nje, Viwanda na Biashara, Fedha, Ulinzi, Mambo ya Ndani, Kamati ya Kudumu ya Bunge ya Ardhi, Maliasili na Mazingira na Viongozi wa Sekta Binafsi ili kupata msimamo wa nchi wa pamoja kabla ya mkutano na Kenya.

Hivyo, vikao vya wataalam vimefanyika Dar es Salaam na Arusha hadi wiki ya kwanza ya mwezi huu wa pili kwa maandalizi ya kikao cha mwisho cha Mawaziri upande wa Tanzania kabla ya kukutana na wenzetu wa Kenya. Pamoja na kushauriana na Waziri mhusika wa Kenya (Masuala ya Afrika Mashariki, Biashara na Utalii, Bi. Phyllis Kandie) kusogeza mbele tarehe ya mkutano wa pamoja ili kuruhusu muda wa kutosha kwa majadiliano ya ndani na wadau, Bi. Kandie alimwandikia Katibu Mkuu wa Jumuiya ya Afrika ya Mashariki, Dkt. Richard Sezibera na kumnakili Waziri Nyalandu, kurejesha amri yake ya awali ambayo alisema inaendana na Sheria ya utalii na kanuni za uchukuzi za Kenya.

Serikali ya Tanzania kimsingi imesikitishwa na uamuzi huo wa Serikali ya Kenya kwani haujengi wala hauendani na dhamira njema ya Mkataba wa Kuanzisha Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki ya kuenzi njia ya mazungumzo, maelewano na maridhiano katika kufikia maamuzi. Suala la kurekebisha mkataba ulioingiwa na nchi hizi mbili kwa hiari miaka 30 iliyopita, si jepesi la kujadiliwa na Mawaziri wawili tu na kuwekeana ukomo wa muda katika kulipitia. Serikali ya Tanzania itaendelea na mchakato iliouanzisha wa kuhusisha wadau wote na kufikia uamuzi ambao itauwasilisha kwa Serikali ya Kenya kupitia vikao rasmi vya Jumuiya.

Pamoja na kwamba amri hii ya Serikali ya Kenya inaenda nje ya mkataba wa 1985 kwa kuvihusisha hata viwanja vya ndege kuwa sehemu ya vivutio vya utalii, Serikali ya Tanzania itaheshimu na kuzingatia amri hiyo ili kulinda undugu na urafiki uliopo kati ya nchi zetu huku tukitafakari hatua za kuchukua ili kuondoa bughudha kubwa itakayotokea kwa watalii na wasafiri wetu wanaopitia uwanja huo wa Jomo Kenyatta. Aidha Tanzania itachukua hatua ya kuwafahamisha watalii na wageni wote wenye nia ya kutembelea vivutio vya kitalii vya Tanzania kutumia viwanja vingine vya ndege ili kuepuka kadhia na gharama zisizo za lazima.

Kwa upande wa Tanzania, viwanja vya ndege hasa vile vya Kimataifa vitaendelea kuwa sehemu ya malango ya kuingilia na kutokea kwenda kokote iwe ndani ya Jumuiya au nje ya Jumuiya na havitavichukuliwa kama vivutio vya utalii. Tanzania haitazuia magari ya Nchi Wanachama wa Jumuiya ya Afrika Mashariki au nchi nyingine yoyote kuingia katika viwanja vyake vya ndege kuleta au kuchukua watalii wanaopitia katika viwanja hivyo na kwenda katika nchi zao.

Mkataba wa mwaka 1985 kati ya Tanzania na Kenya ulilenga kutoa mwongozo wa ushirikiano katika Sekta ya Utalii kati ya nchi zetu mbili. Aidha, makubaliano hayo yalielekeza maeneo muafaka kwa ajili ya kubadilishana watalii huku ikizingatiwa kuondoa bugudha kwa watalii. Maeneo hayo ni pamoja na miji ya mipakani pamoja na miji rasmi iliyopendekezwa na kukubalika na pande zote mbili ikiwemo Nairobi ambako kiwanja cha ndege cha Kimataifa cha Jomo Kenyatta kipo.

Mwisho, Tanzania itaendelea kuenzi undugu na urafiki uliojengeka kwa zaidi ya miaka 50 tokea uhuru kati ya nchi zetu mbili na suala dogo kama hili halitaweza kuteteresha uhusiano wetu mzuri.

President Kikwete of Tanzania in his daily exercise in Dodoma




Tourism and Natural Resources Minister Lazaro Nyalandu yesterday condemned Kenya’s decision to bar Tanzanian registered tour vans from accessing the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).


Tourism and Natural Resources Minister Lazaro Nyalandu.


Mr Nyalandu said the ban was in bad taste and did not augur well for business and diplomatic relations between the two countries. “For Kenya to enforce the ban that was earlier lifted because Tanzania has asked for more time (for talks) is an act that lacks wisdom and sense diplomacy,” he said on his twitter handle last evening.

It was the first time that the minister openly commented on the growing rift following last Friday’s decision to lock out Tanzanian vans from the JKIA in Nairobi where they pick and drop tourists. The ban was announced by Kenyan minister for East Africa Co-operation and Tourism Phyllis Kandie who blamed Tanzania for failing to convene talks on the matter as earlier planned.

Her move has sparked off an uproar on social media which forced her to also take into the same platform to explain her decision. Ms Kandie said the ban was temporary and meant to allow for talks between the two countries on the way forward. “The government gives priority to Kenyans; we have enforced the 1985 bilateral agreement. Talks are on to have a solution, KE & TZ are on the same team,” she twitted.

For his part, Mr Nyalandu says he held talks with Ms Kandie on January 16, after which the ban was lifted the following day. He notes that the agreement was that ministerial experts from Kenya and Tanzania meet within three weeks to iron out any differences.

Mr Nyalandu said Tanzania, however, asked for more time following a request from the ministries of EA Community and that of Transport.

Mr Samuel Sitta who had been in charge of the EAC docket was recently moved to the Transport docket in a Cabinet reshuffle. He swapped places with Dr HarrisonMwakyembe. Mr Sitta last week, while referring to the standoff, said Tanzania should approach the negotiations with caution.

Kigoma North MP Zitto Kabwe was among those who led in the attack on Ms Kandie, asking her to withdraw the ban because it was against the spirit of EAC integration.

“I plead that Kenyan government lift the ban or direct it to parks only in the spirit of EAC,” tweeted Mr Kabwe. The opposition MP said reasons given for the ban were misleading as the airport was not among the areas designated for restriction in the 1985 agreement. Ms Kandie, however, said the agreement covered both national parks, game reserves and airports.

in Arusha, players in the tourism and business sectors said the ban was a wake-up call to make its tourism sector more competitive, including having a working national airline.

The measures should include expanding and modernising the Kilimanjaro International Airport (Kia) and other airports so that they can attract more airlines and direct flights from abroad, according to Mr Walter Maeda, a prominent hotelier.

“The problem is that KIA does not have the capacity to handle thousands of travellers… Nairobi can”, he told The Citizen yesterday when reached on phone to comment on the crisis.

The hotelier noted that instead of the government constructing airports all over the country, more resources should be directed to expand and modernise Kia and JuliusNyerere International Airport (JNIA) in Dar es Salaam.

He warned that the current stand-off was a clear indication that next time the vans would have to drop tourists at Namanga border town.

Mr Andrew Luzze, the executive director of the East African Business Council (EABC), an apex body of private sector associations in the region based in Arusha also faulted the ban.

But a travel consultant based in Arusha, Mr Elisha Mayalla, said the Kenyans were simply implementing the 1985 bilateral agreement with Tanzania made shortly after the re-opening of the common borders.

The executive secretary of the Tourism Confederation of Tanzania (TCT) Richard Rugimbana also exonerated Kenya, saying the neighbouring country was acting in accordance with the 1985 agreement.

He said to the best of his knowledge, airports were not designated as drop-off points for the tourists under the agreement, stressing: “We should go back to find out what the document says before taking any move.”

He called on officials from the two countries to meet and review the bilateral agreement so that they arrive at an amicable solution.

He said despite the introduction of direct flights to Tanzania from some major tourism source countries, JKIA continues to receive a significant number of visitors from abroad heading to Tanzania.

However, he warned that the Kenyan move can be part of the pressure being made, mainly through the EAC, to force Tanzania to open up all her borders for tourists from Kenya, including the Bologonja border post on the Serengeti/Maasai Mara border. The post was closed in the late 1970s.

On Saturday, the Natural Resources and Tourism permanent secretary Dr Adelhelm Meru met with representatives of tour operators in Arusha as the ban on the Tanzanian shuttles to access JKIA started to bite.

Pakistan to train Tanzania Air Force




Pakistan Female Fighter Pilot.


The Tanzania People's Defence Force (TPDF) Air Force and the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which paves way for the provision of Pakistani equipment and specialised training for the Tanzanian Air Force.

In terms of the MoU which was signed between TPDF Air Force commander Major General Joseph Furaha Kapwani and Chief of Air Staff of the PAF Air Marshal Tahir Rafique Butt, Pakistan undertook to train Tanzanian air force personnel in the domains of operations, training, equipment maintenance, security and the military application of information and communication technology (ICT).

The signing of the agreement in the Tanzanian capital Dar es Salaam last week marked a new era in the defence and diplomatic relationship of the two countries.

The visiting Pakistani air force chief hailed the MoU on defence saying it lays the groundwork for formal talks and the initiation of mutual exchanges which will ultimately strengthen the bilateral defence relationship between the two nations.

"We have historical cooperation with Tanzania and the MoU will revitalise the good relations between Tanzania and Pakistan," Butt said.

Kapwani said the mutual defence cooperation agreement has created an ideal platform for his force to share its experiences with their Pakistani counterparts.

"Under the MoU, members of the TPDF will have an opportunity to receive training by the Pakistan Air Force," Kapwani said.

During his four-day visit to Tanzania, the Pakistani air force chief attended a briefing on structure and functions of the TPDF Air Force and visited the country's main air base in Mwanza.

The Tanzania-Pakistan defence co-operation agreement follows the November 2012 tour of the International Defence Exhibition and Seminar (IDEAS) in Karachi by former Tanzanian Minister of Defence and National Service Shamsi Nahodha.

During his visit, Nahodha expressed interest in a wide range of indigenous Pakistani defence products including rifles, machines guns, main battle tanks, naval vessels, unmanned aerial vehicles, helicopters, fighter and trainer jets.
