HONGERA JANUARY MAKAMBA KWA KUANZISHA TOVUTI YA JIMBO LA BUMBULI!!

Katika pita pita zangu leo nimekutana na website ya mbunge kutokea mkoa wa Tanga katika jimbo la Bumbuli Mh. January Makamba. Kwa kweli nilivutiwa sana na kile alichokua anakizungumzia humo. Ni kuhusiana na mikakati ya maendeleo katika jimbo lake la Bumbuli. Ameonyesha msimamo imara katika kuwapigania wananchi wake katika maswala ya Elimu, Afya, Uchumi, Kilimo N.K......kwa kweli imenihamasisha sana. Basi wabunge wengine wa Tanga waige huu mfano. Kwani kiongozi bora ni yule anayefikiria kizazi kijacho, na sio kufikiria uchaguzi ujao atashinda vipi!! Mfuatilie kwa makini January Makamba......

Ndugu January Yusuph Makamba is the new Member of Parliament (MP) for Bumbuli constituency in the Tanzanian National Assembly (The Bunge). He sailed through unopposed in the October 31, 2010 general elections, representing the ruling party Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) ticket. He won the August 1st primary election within CCM with a margin of 80.11% against 8 other contestants.

Before running for Bumbuli parliamentary seat, January was Aide to Tanzanian President Hon. Jakaya Kikwete for 5 years since 2005.

Born in January 28, 1974, January obtained his primary education from various schools across Tanzania, completing his studies at Masiwani Primary School in Tanga. He did his O-level secondary school in Handeni and at Galanos in Tanga. He further pursued his A-levels at Forest Hills in Morogoro.

January never imagined himself pursuing a political career. As a young secondary school student he aspired to be a doctor or perhaps engage in a career in business. This all changed during a gap year before university when he spent time in Kigoma, in the northwest of Tanzania. The year was 1994 and the Rwandan genocide was at its most murderous phase, forcing a huge influx of refugees into Tanzania.

While in Kigoma, January got a job in the refugee camps, first as a Registration Clerk and later as an Assistant Camp Manager for the second biggest camp in Kigoma with 120,000 refugees, known to its residents as Mtabila II. Witnessing the extraordinary daily suffering of human beings in the camps left an indelible mark on the young January, and from then on he made a promise to himself that he will dedicate his life to conflict resolution, to ensure that such untold suffering never happens again.

With that in mind, January attended St. John’s University, a small catholic school in Minnesota, USA, majoring in Peace and Conflict Studies. As a sophomore, he won the Upper Midwest International Human Rights Fellowship organized by the University of Minnesota Human Rights Center.

The fellowship funded his internship and research on refugees’ protection at United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Field Office in Kasulu, Kigoma. After graduating in 2000, he became a Research Assistant at the Carter Center, an institute founded by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, and housing the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, out of Atlanta, Georgia.

As part of the fellowship, in 2002 he spent time in Sierra Leone with the election monitoring team, an experience that deepened his desire to understand issues of democracy and governance and the nature of war and the pursuit of peace.
