Government recognizes the African1
SGovernment Servants' Association


I am directed to inform you that an Assocation with the
title of the African Government Servants' Association has
recently been 'formed and is reported at present to have a member-
ship of 1,820, with branches at Dar es Salaam, wanza, Tanga and
Arusha. The Association states that new branches are being
formed at' Morogoro, Kilosa, Tabora and-Lindi'

2. At the request of a representative deputation of members,
Government has accorded recognition to the Assocation whicht
it is understood, takes the place of the former African Civil
Service Association and I -am to ask that any representations
which theymake to you shall receive due consideration.

Europeans and Assians also have.
Assnciations*2

The issue of circular letter No.11051/?2 of 8th November
regarding the formation of an African Government Servantst
Association has brought to light the fact that Heads of Depart-
ments and Provincial Commissioners have never been formerly
notified of the existence of the Tanganyika European Civil
Servants' Association and the Tanganyika Asian Civil Servants
Association'
2. The European Association was formed in August, 1920, and
the Asian Association in February, 1921. Government accorded
recognition of these two Associations and I am to ask that
any representations which they may make to you should receive
due considerations'.

A Society to unite the Bondei, Shambala
and Zigua its objects*3

I and several of my friends in the south East Asia command,
recognizing the need for all round improvement in our Social
Services in East Africa, have formed an association with
this object in view. The area which our association covers
is the Bodies Zigua and Sliha.-!'' Districts of the Tanga
Province.

,The object of this society is to raise the standard of
life of-our people to purchase a site for the building of a
public library and to improve medical services by the intro-
duction of better-houses and hospitals.. The society further
seeks to ir.pr-.ov:facilities in the.growing of fruits etc.,
and also in the planning of agriculture generally'. They also
hope to have the DC's permission in the introduction of....

.I and, members of this ,society are with the permission;..
DCsI. of the. Tn'-.ain-,Korogwe, Lushoto and Handeni .Districts,
Sto subscribe some money to strengthen this -organisation which
is non-Political,. .:

We have'all recognized:the need and because we have
formed a group we are ready to devote our lives to the
furtherence of.that cause selflessly and co-operatively
not for the purpose of glorifying and expanding our own
age but for the uplifting of the standard of life in the
Districts mentioned,





UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA LIWARIES ,










The .Society;proposes to hold their meeting sone-
where at 11uhc .za which was selected by the members as their main
station with various stations or sub-stations in all other
places as the members may wish to do,

,,.Hoping my application will undergo .your kind conside-
ration ion an d appreciation after perusal,and.se -rutil y:

Intention and reasons for the formation, of.
the Usambara Assocation *4

Usambara Assocation.

SA number of people have felt for.some time,that it
would be of.great help to.the Wasambara if an Association should
be formed known of "Chama cha Wasambaa" (Usambara Association).
This will serve'as a.centre for discussion and exchange of
opinion on the present problems -concerning development in
Social welfare of people.

T.he need has been felt,'.most strongly'especially now
that the readiness of Government to help in the improvement of
the peoples life in social welfare/iS realized even in the
time when it is engaged in such a terrible strLggle for free-
dom that the world has never known in the history of man-
kind.

It has been noticed with great app,',::i-tion that the
Government has promised to undertake arrangements for the wel-
fare of African Soldiers returning home after the war and it
is understood that elaborate scheme't are in the process of
being formulated,

It is.:.difficult .however to get reliable African
opinion as a basis though there are many people with good
ideas and suggestions, owing to lack of unity and means of
discussions and free exchange of ideas, The result of this
is that very few little or no co-operation.is forthcoming
from then in the big tasks ahead.

We desire progress in all matters of civilization in
order that we may play our full part as useful members of the
British Commonwealth with the hope to have Government!s
support to establish this Association and encouragement to
hold meetings to express opinion from time to time''

'' It is desired that the association'should .be non-
political and sectarian0

It is.hoped to call meetings for this as soon
'' as the number of members is known. In the meantime this
Setter. is sent to you with the hope that you are inte-
rested'in this movermnt, and we can call on your assistance
and co-operation' If this is so would" you fill and
return the attached slip to Mr. Samuel S. Chamsama, c/O
The District Office, Korogwe,- without delay'

It is not yet time to create unity (Chama") in
Usambara*5 .

Kila neno hutendeka-kwa-v-iakati wake

Kurmbukumbu la mkutano wa chana cha Usanbara

Niakuarifu kwanba: kwa mintarafu ya clkutino wa.
Vuga 19/4/45 ;- sote tunafahamu kuwa siku ile ndiyo siku.
:',.ya kwanza Usambara kubikiriwa Chama (Umoja)'.~

N a wvengine siku ile wakawa na shaka juu ya rmkutano
tna matengenezo ya chana (Umoja), k,7a hiyo watu wote wakarudi
makwao bila jawabu lolote., Inatumainiwa kwamba roho& zawatu
engine zilihudhunika sana kwa kukosa nl;-:ptano.na umoja ili'
kuten ieneza chama cha Usambara.

Na mimi kila nikifikiri nimeona kuwa: Chama ni umoja,
na umoja ndio wenye nguvu kuliko upekee, basi.pi rahisi kujua
kwarba, kila rtu atatamani nguvu kinyume-cha udhaifu.

1) UMOJA NDIO NGUVU
2) IUFUrT NDIO UDHAIFU.
*.. Na wenye kukinai udhaifu, watatamani nguvu kinyume cha udhaifu
waliokuwa nao kwanza.

Na hii ni kweli nisqmalo kwamba: Huwezi kutamani
lingine kama hujalikinai ulilokuwa nalo kwanza. Ndipo
nikasema: NENO HUTE3TDEKA KWA WAKATI WAKE.

Nami nakujulisha kwamba, habari za chama zimekwisha
pigva nihuri mioyoni mwa Wasanbaa hazitapotea, bali zinangojea
siku na wakati. Na kama hakitawezekana chama vitafanyika vyama
wakati utakapowadia. Na ingawa sisi-hatutawahi kuona wakati wa
kustawi kwa chama, tusikate timaa; sababu watoto wetu au wajukuu
wetu wataona kustawi kwa chama.

Ingawa wako watu walio na mashaka juu ya chama, hata
wao,.pia hawana makosa zaidi ball ni kwa kuwa wakati bado.
Miimi ninayo matumaini juu yao kwa;pia watakuja furahi kama wata -
jaliwa kuona ustawi wa chana cha Usambaaa.

Sub-Chiefs Meeting to decide whether or not .
the Usambara Association should bo'established. 6

Waama nawaarifuni kwamba mkutano wa Mazunbe vwa
Usambara.utakuwapo Moombo tarehe 15 na 16 ya August, 1945'.
Kama alivyoahidi Bwana Shebuge tarehe 20.4.45 huko .Vuga, juu
ya mambo'ya Chama cha, Usambara kwvanba- atatoa jawabu katika mkutano
huu ujao, nami kwa sababu ya Iukataa fujo na kuwapunguzia hasara
za safari napenda wale wanaopenda chama hiki mkutane mchague
watu wawili anrao wqtakuwa wajumbe wenu, hawa lazima wahu-
dhurie penye mkutano huo .ili kusikiliza majibu ya wakuu-
wetu juu ya chama chctu, na wakirudi nakwao watoe, habari
safi. kwa jamaa walioko nyumbani.

'.Habari .hi.zi nimemweleza T3wana District Commissioner
ambaye amrkubali wafike Mombo watu wawili. kutoka kila .nchi
kwa shughuli hiyo.











The Chief Approves the .sambara1 Association7



Kwa mintaarafu ya mazungumzo yetu ihtika mkutano

T angazo.

Nawakumbusha watu wtde ya kuwa siwozi kupokea maneno
ya mtu yeyote ambaye anadai kiti cha Uz'Tunbe au Ujume. Ime-
katazwa kabisa watu kudai kiti .cha utawala mpya. 'Kila mara
wakati tukapochagua mtu kuwa mtawala tutatongeza.klla upande wa
wilaya na .tu yeyote ambaye anafikiri anayo hakii kuwa mtawala
anaweza kufika na kudai, kama hakuhudhuria wakati ule hawezi
kudai baadaye. .

Pia woto wakumbuko ya kuwa kuanza fitina katika
nchi ni kosa baya nbele ya macho ya serkali na mtu anaweza
kupewa adhabu kali.

Tangazo hili litundikwe barazani''

reply to D.C. Korogwe's letter No 76/10/60 dated 2nd February
1946.

Sgt. George Mahute setting out the objects of the society
quoted in our a/r letter.

The citizens of Western Usambara Dissociate
themselves with any deliberations of the
meeting-to be held at Morbo .on'4.4.'`Ti4

: :Tunayo heshima kukuletea T-h:o n.aohi waliokubali-
ana wanachama wa vyama mbali mbali katika Usaimbara ya
STTHIa'-Lri-bi (MTtao, *,Vuga, Lushoto and.Gare.) katika mkutano
wao uliofanyika Lushoto tarehe 1.'61947, juu ya mkutano unao-
senwa kuwa utakuwako Mombo tarehe' 4,6.1947.'

: : (I) Kwa kuwa hakuna raiya ye.yote aliyearifiwa kuwa
mkutano huo utakuwa juu ya nini, wanachana wamoona kuwa
lolote litakalosemwa katika mkutano huo na hao watu wanne
waliochaguliwa na :Mvazumb. watalisema wao wenyewe lakini si badala
ya raia wa upande huu wa Usambara.. Kwa sababu ingawa tuna-
sikia kuwa watu hao wametakiwa wawe badala ya raia lakini
haikuwa hivyo, manna watu hao kama wangalitakiwa wasemc
mawazo ya raia bila shaka wangalichaguliwa. na raia wenyewe.

.:Protest refuting the idea that the Kilindi'
are: the. -raditional Rui-rs .o' Usanbara* '


Uhusiano wa- wasar baa na Wakilindi

Tafadhali tupatie nafasi katika gazeti lako tukufu
ili tupate kuzungumza kidogo juu ya habari hii.

Uhishani huu juu ya utawala wa Kikilindi katika
Usarbara umnpndelea kwa muda mnrfu kidogao, naohata casa
umerika kwonye kuandika matusi ambayo yanaharibu sifa ya.hao
waandishi, sababu kwanza usemi wa heshima mbble ya watu'ni
mmojawapo wa misingi ya ustaarabu-wa :, :li. Pili kuharibu
sifa ya Gazetu letu::la.Mambo Leo maana gazeti hili ndilo
ambalo tunalifanya mwali' wetu, basi ikiwa linajazwa matusi sifa
ake kwa watu walio nje ya nehi yetu kupun:ua.

Jambo linalotusikitisha ni kuwa kwanza utawalawa
kilindi wakati wa Sorkali ya Kijerumani ulififia na hata:'
tunasema ulikufa kabisa. Na Se-rkali ya Kiin.ereza ilipofika
ili kutaka kutengeneza utawala na haki na kukoiesha utawala
waa Maakida, ambao hlukuwa na haki, na kuwa Serkali ya
Kiingereza ilikuwa ngoni na haikufua historic safi ya wonyeji,
iliuliza kila mahali, rtawala wa asili ni nani, sasa inaku-
ja jambo la kusikitisha kabisa, nalo ni hili: ilikuwa maana
gani wazee wa Kisambaa kusoma kwa Sorka-li iliyotaka kuambiwa
kweli kuwa IIkilindi ndiye aliyekuwa- Mtawala wa asili katika
Usanbaa? Maana Babu zao walirTpa Mbega ufalmnu ,Ia wena .
wake, na wala hawakujua kuwa wa zao wake watakuja kuwa -wadhalimu
Je na nyinyi wazoe aliokuwa wajukuu ilikuwa maana gani kusema
kuwa I'ilindi ndiye aliyekuwa mtawala wa asili aliyokuwa
bila shaka mlilungumziwa udhalinu na ukatili wao na babu zenu
Au tuserme kuwa kabla ya kuja Mbega Sambaani, Sambaani kulikuwa
hakuna Utawala. .Bila shaka walikuwako intawa watawala hao
hawakuwa na nguvu ya kutawala Usambaa nzima. Kwa hivi hailoti
maana kutunia matusi ambayo yaharibu sifa zenu maana makosa ya
Wazee wa Kisambaa ya wazi. Pili kwa wale vijana wa Kikilindi,
waandikao au wasonao. kuva wao ni watawala au wasemao kuwa wao ni
watawala wa.jadi, afadhali wabadili mawazo hayo, maana
usemi wa namna hiyo hauleti naana wala faida, ila huleta
machafuko na chuki kati --:iu, na ndugu zenu Wasambaa, hasa
wakati kama huu amnboao vijana wa kisambaa wamekwisha fahamu
nakosa ya wazee wao kusema.kuwa IMkilindi ndiye aliyc kuwa
mtawala wa asili katika nchi ya Usambaa..

Sisi tuandikao si wabaadhi yoyote katika'ugomvi
huu, lakinil:kwa kuwa nyie wotee i .ndugu kwetu sisi, nasi kwa
kuwa tunayo matazamio .makuli kabisa ya maaendeleo ya nchi
hii ,na tena kwa. kuwa maendeleo hayo hayawezi kupatikana
ikiwa nchi inr -aan--ika sehenu mbili, tunadhubutu kusema
kuwa sisi.na wale wenye kusanbana hivi sasa tusipotafuta
dawa.ya kuporiya ugonjwa huu kwa hakika :hakutakuwa na
maendeleo yoyote kama tutazaniavyo. -Na kwa.kcuwa nia yetu
ni kutaka kuona Usambaa ni :- l h -li. pa.raha kwa kila mmoja
akaae humo tunatoa njia hizo ambazo zikiongezeka na
nyingine zitaka zafolewa na watu wenye maarifa, labda









zitafaa kuponya ugonjwa huu:

(1) .Walo wqny o.amlaka juu ya mambo ya utawala
ti.maona afadhali wangaligawanya utawala wa vw .::ji sawa
bin sawa, hasa hii itegemee watawala wachaguliwe kwa maarifa
yao, yaani ikiwa wako Wakili wenye maarifa mengi zaidi ya
Wasambaa, iwe hali kadhalika na hii haitakuwa viigumu ikiwa
wale watawala wanajifanya ,watumlishi wa raia badala ya kuwa
mahwana kama ilivyo hivi sasa yaani kazi kubwa ni kungoja
mwisho wa mwezi klwonda pokea mshahara. Na Shabaha ya kila
mtawala isiwe kujifikiria yeye ni damu ya nahi ila lake liwe
noja, yaani kuendesha nchi kwa manufaa ya wote.

2) (a) Vijana wa Kilindi afadhali wasome historic ya
South Africa tangu awanzo mpaka mwisho kisha walinganishe
historic hiyo na uhusiano ulioko hivi sasa katika nchi
hiyo na Uingoreza'.

(b) Ule usemi wao wa kusema hii ni nchi yaigu
waache kabisa maana hii haileti mana hasa kwa wale wajuao,
sababu nchi ni watu kwa hiyo mtu wapekee awezae kusema nchi
yangu ni yule afanyae mambo lkva faida ya watu wake.

Na tunaandika haya kwa sababu katika fikara zetu tu-
ona wale waandikao au wasema'o kuwa Wakilindi waondoke au waondo-
lewe ni kama wanaota tu na kwa hakika ndoto yao haitakuwa kweli
maana hilo.ni janbo ambalo Serkali hata kule kufikiria haita-
lifikiria na sababu ya kutofikiriwa ni kwa kuwa uzao huu
umeishi ameishi kwa miaka mingi katika nchi hii kwa ukarimu
a .Wasambaa, kwa hiyo-kitehdo cha kuwahamisha kitakuwa..sawa-
sawa ay kupita vitendo-hivyo munavyowalaumu, navyo yaani,
tdhalimu na ukatili, Tunajua kuwa kvwa wale vijana wa Kisambaa
ambao wanagadhabu sana kwa vitendo hivyo visemwavyo watatuona
Ssisi ni adui zao kabisa Iwva kuandika hayo, lakini tunawaomba
kwa faida ya nchi nzima ya Usambaa wafikiri zaidi njia
,. hiyo tuliosema hapq mwanzo, na nyinginezo ambao zitatengeneza
udugu huo kuliko kutoa matusi gazetini, maana njia hiyo
nawapunguzia sifa zao ujamaa machoni pa makabila engine.
.Na vijana wa Kilindi tunawaomba wasahau historic ya zamani
'ambayo hivi sasa ikizungumzwa mbele ya watu wastaarabu ni.
aibu tupu, yaani ile ya kumtendea udhalimu na :ukatili mwenyeji
wako baada ya kufanikiwa.

Shebuge changed people's Decision alone*17

We the undersigned said at first we thought we
should stick to our decision made at the previous meeting
of sub chiefs namely that a "aziri should be appointed
and that it should be Samuel Chamshama. 'hmen however
the Shebuge made it clear that he should not have Samuel
Chamshama at any price, we agreed that it was his decision
as we were under him. Sub Chiefs Daudi Sozi, Raphael also
said 'this,

Dessociation with -Shebuge's Decision l .

We the undersigned maintained that the matter--
of matter of choice of a waziri was entirely a matter for.the
She buge'








10.


A fruitless meeting which was intended to
announce the nullification of S. Chamsahama
appointront nnd the appointment of another
"T--.. -ri "*19

Sambo :ili:ozuunurazwa katika .ikutano uliyofa-
n"yika 'iob iotarehe 4.6.47.

I"aya yafuatayo ni mambo tuliyoletewa na Mrwarachama
wetu E!i-. u tui.:.wa kusikiliza rnkutano huo h.!-r juu:-

S"Watu walianza mkutano saa 8.

Tulipohudhuria barazani ndipo Zumbe Kasi-m Kimweri
Miola al:': n'i. kusora barua ya mkutanpo Baada ya kumaliza
barua hiyo, ndipo Shieufe mwenyewe akaanza kutoa hotuba.
Na katika hotuba hiyo alisena "Watu wengi wamesikia kuwa nime-
ondolewa, basi watu wote wakamwitikia .ndiyo. Kwa sababu
hiyo sababu ya kuniita mkutano .huu ili nikufahanishoni kuwa
rmimi sikuondolewa wala sitaki kuondoka. Tena anesikia kama
'.;'...' D.C. anemochagua Samwuel Chamshana awe Wiaziri. Kwa hivi
mimi sitaki Samuel awe '/aziri, na sababu hiyo nitamchagua mtu
mwingine ili ashike kazi hiyo.

Isaak Hoza ambaye ndiye nwanachama wetu, akamwuliza
Shebuge kuwa je, mtu huyo utamchaguwa wewe peke yako au
panoja na sisi? Shebuge akajibu -ir.li imwenyewe, Isaak.. oza;
.basi ikiwa ntu huyo utamchagua wewe mwenyewe, sisi tureitiwa
nini?. ,Akasianama Zumbe Mandia, Bwiti, badala ya Shebuge
.Ak, a,.'L. ni verna kama utamchaguwa wewe Shebuge hakuna mtu
Satakae kataa, Kisha akasimama Zumbeo Hassani Kinyasi, Mialo:
.".l,:n..i:- mniri ninarudi upande wa Isaak Hooz., kwa sababu haniku-
mjibu sawasawa swali alilouliza, naana swali lake nikuwa
ikiwa .Shebuge mwenyewe ana uwezo wa kutchaguwa ritu huyo ili-
kuwa maana gani kutuita katika rkutano kiwa sababu njia bora
ni kuntaja mtu yule .ili sisi wote tumjue ndipo aliposimana
Salim Hoza, kijana wa Makuyuni yeyo akauliza kwanini hapo juzi
vw'!lic, ::!ui uwa. huyo Samueli nani? Zumnbe Sozi Kibanga, Bumbuli
akasema ni sisi wote. Kiisha akasinama Zunbe Kasimr, l ola,
akasena, kweli ilikuwa sisi, lakini hiyo juzi tuliitikia kwa
nguvu, sababu yule mzungu alitulet-ea n;uvu kwariba aiekwisha
mchaguwa Sanucl na ntu atakaemncataa, yeye ni npunbavu, kva
hivi tulikataa kuwa wapuubavu. Hapo.:alisimii a .Zumbe Raphael,
IMoombo, akasena, jarani afadhali tusizue ni mzungu gani alietu-
tilia nguvu? Mimi niliona Bwana D.C. wetu alipofika hapa
aliing.ia ndani pamoja Shebuge wetu na walipotoka ndipo
Shebuge alitueleza kuwa: Mlimi afya yangu imekuwa dhaifu na kwa
sababu hiyo tutaweka Waziri atakoendesha kazi na. kuinua
nchi. Je, mmekubali? Na Zunbe.Sozi, alijibu kuwa ikiwa wewe
na D.C. ndivyd mlivyoona, sisi turekubali, naana Samuel ni
mtoto aliyekulia mikononi mwetu na mkoononi mwa .Serkali, naye
hajaonekana ha'kosa lolote, basi tukikataa iko sababu gani?
Maneno hayo ya Zunbe Raphael yalithibitishwa na Z.ube Sozi
kuwa kweli hakukuwa na nguvu yeyote iliyotumika. Basi ikiwa
kwa hivi sasa Shebuge rnwen r...... anataka kuvunja mapatano
hayo afadhali ayavunje peke yake. Isaak Hoza, il i'w. unataka
kuvunja mapatano anbayornmelvwisha patan:na na. Bwana D.C.
na una haja ya k:uweka mtu nwi.nine, basi hii ni shauri -n]:co
wala usiwe na haja ya kutuanbia sisi. Basi ShobuTe akajibu
kuwa kwa leo mtu huyo, niliyi.ri,-:h-:,;uwa sitaweza kumtaja
ila afadhali rakalale, na kesho ndipo nikuanbieni'. Basi
Baraza ikavunjika.

Tarehe 5.6.47. Kabla ya knanza mkutano wa junla, Mazumbe
walikwenda katika mkutano ia siri na wakati huo ulikuwa saa
4, na mkutano huo wa siri haukumalizika npaka saa 7a..
nMkutano wa jumla ulianza saa 8. Na katika nkutano huo
halikupatikana lolote la faida, ila maneno yaliyokuwa ni yale
yale ya tarehe 4,6.47.

:Shebuge akasema: nimi sitamtaja yule mtu niliye-
.:cl:i- un :'mpaka ninuone kwa sababu ninaweza kumtaja hapa, je
,nikifika akikataa? Kwanza nionane nae halafu ndipo.nita-
.mtaja, .na wala wakati huo sitaweza kuwveka nbele ya vatu
wengi jiarna hii sobabu watu wa siku hizi ni wajanja, kama
ukimweka nanna hii kiisha kesho ukitaka kumwondoa atakuja
kataa na kusema ni kvwa sababu ,qani ulinichaguwa rible ya
watu?

Kwa hivi mkutano huu umefanyika,' lakini hakuna faida
yoyote iliyopatikana wala hakujulikana shabaha. .yake ni
nini, Kwa hivi baraza ilivunjika na watu waliohudhuria wali-
ondoka kama walivyokuja, hali ya kuwa. walitazaraia. kupata makubwa
kabisa kwa kuhudhuria mkutan'o huo".


We have the honour to submit herev.ijh the Proceedings
of the Y''oeao meeting as reported by our Special observer. The
Associations.' comments on this meeting are reported, will
be- submitted to you in due'

Protest against the-Shebuge's Personal-
Choice of "Waziri".and His anti-people:s
Behaviour *20

Kama tulivyoahidi, hayo yafutayo ndiyo m.aoni yetu juu
ya nkutano huo:-

2(1) Uchaguzi wa District Commissioner.' Kwa kuwa
District Commissioner anayo maarifa na elimu maalumu juu ya mambo
ya utawala, na tena kwa kuwa yeye ajua ni kazi gani hasa mtu
yule atakiwae atazifanya, tunakuwa wakati huu hakuna naana ya
kupinga uchaguzi huu. Kwa sababu yeye tunavyodhani ni
kuwa mtu huyo kamchagua kw-a maarifh yake na mazoezi yake ya
kazi. Na hayo'kayathubutisha kwa kukaa nae mtu huyo kwa
muda mrefu. Na kana yako malaumu yatakuja wakati huo ambao
mtu aliyenchagua ataiharibu kazi, wala hakuna maendeleo
yeyote ambayo watu wengi wanayatazamia kuwa yataletwa na
uchaguzi huo.

(ii). Uchaguzi wa She.buge: "wa kuwa sisi ni Waafrika,
na kwa kuwa tuyasemayo, si kwa faida yetu, imetubidi kusema
mengi tena wazi wazi bila ya kificho juu ya kifungu hiki.
(a) Samueli simtaki',..lc-kini litanchagua miu nimtakae
niml mwenyewe.
SIaneno haya tulipoycona, yalitushangaza sana, kwa
sababu tunavyodhani ni kuwa huyo ZSamuel anachaguliwa ill
afanye kazi kwa faida ya raia wote. rSasa Shobuge ,kusema kuwa
mtu huyo atanchagua yeye mwenyewe, je, huyo Samuel au huyo
mtu mwingine atakayemchagua mwenyewe atntawala yeye au
raia ?Ikiwa ni raia basi tunaaoa kuwa watu wenye haki .peke
C *.. .!. .. **.-.-; : \ ,'' ., i.









12.

ya'ol ya 1;U:-.i kunchagua wenyewe ni rain wala si Shebuge.,
maana. watu hao n.:lio wtakaooana mcchungu au matamu :,'t:it -,'n-
letvia na uwaziri wa, Samuel au mtu mwingino. 77Ta Usemi huo
tulipouona, ulitukumbusha hadithi ya kweli ya zamani ya
uturviwa ambayo twazungumziwa na wazee mara kwa mara:-'Wakati
huo, mtu akiwa na mtumwa wake na akitoka kumwuza, hufanya
bei-tayari, na akiisha poke kima cha mtumwa huyo, humwiita
mbele ya yule nnunuzi, na kumshika mkono na kumpiga kofi,'
na kuwmwarbia kuwa ujuwe kuwa tangu leo iriimi si bwana wako,
huyu ndiye bwana waloo, basi humkabidhi yule munuzi. Basi
tukifananisha usemi huu na hadithi hii, hatuoni tofauti.

(b) Watu wa Siku hizi ni wajanja kama nikiinweka
hadharani, kesho nikitaka kuxawondoa, ataniuliza ni sababu'
gani ulinichagua. Usemii huo pia tuna mashaka nao, kwa sababu
sisi ,tungali. tulkifikiri, kuwa mtu huyo atakiwa kususa kwa
kuwatumikia raia na kama .tulivyokwisha sema hao ndio wenye
haki ya kulalamika.kuwa mtu huyu haifanyi kazi ya manufaa
kwretu kana tulivyo tazamia (ingawa raia hawakujulishwa
ha labda Iawatajulishwa,). kazi naalum atakayofanya huyo Bwana.
Sasa ajabu ni kuwa, Shebu)e ana'kazi gani zaidi ya zile
za kuendesha nchi anazotaka afanyiwe::na bowana huyo, na hata
akartaka mtu :wake. :..-::a. :-wI. or.-':, asipotimiza kazi hizo anwo-
ndoe wakati wowote akitaka?, Lakini kama tuonavyo ni kuwa
mpaka hivi leo chini ya F'endera Tukufu "Union Jack" wake
watawala wengi kva kutokuwa na. Elimu ya kisasa wangali waki-
fikiri kuwa ria ni mtumwa tu, wala hawana kauli yoyote juu
ya jambo linalotakiwana natawala wao likiwa baya au jema. Je,
.Serkali tukufu itaachilia nawazo haya yaendelee mpaka lini?
Maana katike mawazo yetu tunaona kuwa mtaalam wa kazi yeyote
ndiye nwenye uwezo peke yake ya mambo ya utawala wa kisasa
awezaye kumpa sifa ntu wa kufanya kazi hiyo ni yule ambae ana
eliu mnaalum kwa kazi-hiyo.

3. Hapa twakubali kabisa kuwa maneno yaliyosemwa katika
Zaburi ni kweli kabisa i'"ui-u humpa ntu yeyote amtakae japokuwa
yuko usingizini" Je, si '.ti kubwa watu wenye maarifa
kutawaliwa -na mtu asiyojuwa kitu, na hali va kuwa mtu huyo
hawadhamini wale awatawalao ila kuwafikiri kuwa ni viumbe
vilivyounbwa na, Tungu mwenye Ukarimu kuwa watumishi wake'.
Kwa hivi tunaona kuwa uchaguzi wake hautogemei
:kunchagua litu yule atakefaa kuifanya ile kazi ila amtaka
mtu take r.in-'yeye mwenyewe. Kwa sababu hiyo, na kwa
sababu hiyo tu, kuwa uchaguzi wake haufai.

4. Tunafunga maoni yotu kwa kukubali udhaguzi wa
Diztriet Cormmissiomer kwa-moye wote.. .

Kvwa barua ya Bwana Shauri wa Lushoto ya tarehe 24.6.47
akijibu barua yangu ya tarehe 23.6.47 kwa kumuuliza kama watu
waliyokutanika Lushoto siku hiyo wamemuarifu, na kama sivyo awa-
shitaki. Amenianbia kwamba wewe umentuma aniarifu kuwa
hakuna sababu ya kuwashitaki watu waliofanya mkutano huko
Lushoto, tuna wazumbe wa nkutano watakuja Vuga kuonana
nani.....Wajumbe hao sitaki kuonana nao nataka yule aliye watuma
kufanya'nao nataka yule aliye watuma'kufanya rnkutano afike
wenyewe kueleza ntakalo. Kwani najua sana hao wakina
Yusufu wanefika Korogwe kwenye nkutano mwezi huu kuonana na
huyo aliye watuna kabla ya tarehe 23.6, Akiwaandalia ya
kufanyana kuwafundisha shoria za Serkali .y Eiin-.:.resn.
Mimi nimekwisha kurajua na yeye anajijua pia. Basi ni afadhali
akija yoye mwcnnyewe kuliko wajumbe wake aliyowafunza.

Kwa hiyo ninakujulisha uwaambie wajumbe hao wasifike
kuonana nani afike huyo aliyewatuma.

The Government must discipline the
Political agigators ledby S.Chamshama who
was rejected as "Waziri"*23

I regret very much to adhere from the members of
23rd June, Lushoto meeting that the plan of Mr. Samweli
Chamshama and his boss is to encourage the poor .peasants to
to hate their Sultan B'ana Shebuge Magogo Kimvreri, and
Saccour that they may check him from his position and to be
succeeded by Mr' Samweli Chamshama. In order to get the
heartest will of peasantry he promised few patrol leaders
such position as the Zumbe Mkuu or any post which will make
then important figure in N.A. :of Usambara. Through this,
the leaders are very much active, going round the whole
country to explain such propaganda which they learnt from
Mr. Samuel Ch. The Leaders may be:-


(1) Mlalo = Yusufu, Mdoe Ngoda--^(2)-Vuga-= -Isaka s/o Hoza;
Mtayo Dafa Yohana s/o Hoza, Mw. Petro Salimu, Petro Shemndolwa
and Andrea ;horindolwa (3) Mombo = Waziri Nyegere, and
Salche h..ii ,~noka. (4) Bunbuli = Abdallah..Tekelo and Mohhmed
Kangajaka.

These are the best propagandists of this action.
This trouble has been brought about by Mr. Samuel Chamshama
when he has been stopped being "Waziri Makuu" by Twana
Shebuge. This group will make a great number of riotprs if
the-Central Government officials are just keeping quiet.
I hope it has boon-already understood by the Govermient
officials. The leaders went to I lalo to get experienced
rioters such as Mr. Mdoe Ngoda. and Yusufu who. called-to
the D.C. 's office at thi. meeting day.

20 The Magistrates of this. District have power at- any
time and from time to tine to appoint; another.Sirmbaamwcne
of this country if the present one has been found guilty by










the Governtient officials or the Magistrates should stop
this action. What I learnt -from this condition, it seems that
the Government officials stand either sides to the rioters and
to the Government rules'; and .this sees not to be justice'
The Government officials especially Magistrates are very
much strict to any one who break the Governnm-nt laws, or I
,m'ay'have gone :t'.'r;- if there is no law against, this lebel.

3. Unwise .';imrl :1.i have beon deeply planted in
this riot by the means of the propaganda of the so called
educated, Shaibalas. Therefore it doubtful to occur..a..blood-
shed between these vagabonds, the group against Shebuge and
that it's foolish tP write to you, but be so good to. try to
Stop this action before it comes to. the boiling point'

S Strong conditions for, She u.g '

7asharti Tutakayo

Sisi tulio hapa hatutaki (kupendana) na BTwana Shebuge
lakini kana yeye anataka kusema ni sisi akubali haya.

Bwana Shebuge akubali kutia saini katika masharti
haya yafuatayo:-

1. Shebuge akubali kwanba akishindwa na naswali yetu
leo hii atoko katika kazi ya Ushebuge kwa' uda wa saa 2.

II. Bwana Shebuge akubali kwamba nikishindwa na watu
hawa nisipate ahsante hota kidogo.kwa Serkali.

-III. Shebuge akubali kwamba gharama ya Serkali ni juu
yangu kwenda kila mahali.
iv. Shabuge akubali kwamba nikishindwa "n watu hawa
nitatoka pasi kulalama.

If Shebuge is seriously concerned about his
country Usambara, let him give up to date
information based on data. *25
Maulizo nbele ya bwana

(i) Tangu kutawala Sanbaani hata sasa ni niaka mingapi?
Ulitawala kwa kunpokea nani?
Aliyewacha kazi ya kutawala aliwacha Iwva sababu gani?
TJliingia utawala mwaka gani, tarehe gani, nwezi gani, siku
gani? Leo una miaka ngapi?

(2)' M1tawala ulie mpokea aliingia kazi nwaka gani, aliacha
iy, .v':a gani na kwa sababu gani aliacha?
(3) : .!tw'nal]. aliekua amepokewa na ntawala anbayo ulinpokea,
alianza-kazi yake mwaka gani?

Aliacha kazi yake kwa sababu gani? Aliacha kazi ya
kutawala mwaka gani? Serikoli ilifanya nini juu yake?, Yu hai
ama hayuko, kama yuko sasa anafanya kazi gani'katika Saibaani?












(4) Tangu unetawala Sanbaani hata sasa t...r: fanya kazi gani
ambazo zitakunbukwa na vizazi vijavyo nyuma yako? Unofanya
-msaada gani katika Usambaa tangu kutawala kwako?

Usambaa ilipoonekana kwanba Wasanbaa wanazidi kuwa
waitu wa 'nymna watu walifanya mashauri matatu juu ya Usanbaa,
ili kutaka kui,;na Usanbaa, lakini wewe mwonycwe ulikubali
Smasharti nara ya mkutano uligeuka ulishartizwa kukubali,
na nbele ya watu wako waliofika kwako uliwafukuza, uliwafukuza
kwa nini?

(5) Usanbaa haina eliru ryyote, na wcwo kwa nini hutaki
kuungana na raia zako kila majambo?
Usanbaa haina wazalishaj'i, wake Wa kisanbaa huzaa kwa
taabu sana hasa wake wa Kisanbaa hufa kwa sababu ya uzazi, kwa
nini hakuna pahali hasa pa ufundi wa uzalishaji?

(6) Tangu kutawala Serkali imeweka'sheria ngapi? Na ni
ngapi zinazotumika? Sheria za kuzuia udongo zineingia mwak,
gani zinatunika vipi?.

Kwa nini hakuna viwanja vya malisho ya wanyama?. Kwa
nini raia na MTazunbe ni nbali nbali? Usanban inazo school ngapi
na za nissionangapi, za wenyeji ngapi na zinasoma watoto
wangapi, na. katika Usambaa ina watoto wangapi arbao hawasomi na
hawa -utaweka .wapi?

Vuga ndio office kuu ya Usambaa. Leo tunataka kuona
record ya kila kitu i. Walipaji kodi katika Korogwe ,na Lushoto
ni wangapi ii. Wazee wangapi mwaka huu walioachishwa kodi
kwa' a3ili yakdo

iii. Jumla ya watu wa Usanbaa ni wangapi wake na waume
pamoja na wazee na watoto? Tunataka kuona eneo la Usambara
kwa mapana na marefu hapa tulipo leo, kwani kila jambo
lakaa hapa.

7'. Tangu 1940 Wasambaa walianzwa kukonatwa na kupelekwa
vitani kwva kazi ya kusaidia dola. yetu tukufu, na tumesikia wa-
tawala wa makabila engine walifika katika viwanja vya
vita illi kwenda kuwatazama watu wab na kuwatia moyo na
kutazama natumizi yao.i. Jo, Shebuge alipata kwenda au akajaribu
-kutua -Ujumbe wake kama wenzake engine walivyofanya? Au
aliomba haja hiyo Serkali ikamktaza? (b) Ikiwa .hakuenda alitoa
msaada gani ambao ungaliwoza kuwasaidia raia zake walio .vitani
Ikiwa haya yoto hakuna alilofanya wakoti ule alikuwa akishughu-
lika nini?

Sasa ni wakati wa Waingere za--kutinmi-a. ahadi yao walio-
ahidi kwamba wakati vita ikiisha, dunia itafanywa upya yaani
watu vnito watapata..hurhu.. Na -Icfundishwa elimu-yaani, kila
taifa liwe kama watu wa maana.

Na kwa nini yeye Shebu'e hapendi '."s ';, i:an kuwa

kupigania ili apate uwaziri badala ya Samuel aliyekubaliwa
na Mabwana na Mazunbe wa Usambaa. Huyu Seri amesahau nakosa
makosa yake nakubwa aliyotenda.

1. Kunako nwaka 1932 alipokuwa nwalimu Fission Vuga
alintukana Shobuge Magogo kwa kutohudhuria watoto wake
Shuleni. 2. Alitengwa na Kanisa kwa ajili ya uzinifu.
3. Alipoungama na kupewa kazi ya Lushoto Schdol akaichafua
kwa kutohudhuria sawa sawa. 4. Alipata kazi T.T. School
Marangu na huko alichafua kanisa zima la Kilimanjaro na
Uosambaa. Akahulkuriwa asipate kazi katika Makanisa haya.'
5 A Akapata kazi U.M.C.A. Minaki nako akachafua tena 6.
Mwaka 1945 hapa Vuga alishitakiwa na Zumbe Hasani Magogo
kwva kuwapiga watu Sindano bila cheti akafainiwa Shs.100/-
7. Alikataliwa na VWazumbe wa Usambaa asiwe ntendaji kwva ku-

Reference meeting at Vuga of the Native
Association.

I attach copy of a telegram I found on my return,
the tone which is a trifle surprising from an unrecognised
Native Association. I consider that .this with the. evidence
of Mr. Grant and myself would constitute a case under
section 68 of the Penal Code against the leaders of the
Usambara Native Association for assisting in the management
of an unlawful society. At any rate it is I think grounds
for declaring the Usambara Native Assocation an unlawful
society under Section 67(2).(2) and or (g) and felling them
that unless they disolve themselves, remove their badges and
then if they wish form another society with different
aims and practices they will be charged under section 68
of the Penal Code'.

Taarifa ya Mkutano,

1 Bwana :doe Barua akauliza habari za wageni. Jumbe
O' mari akamuiitikia kuwa zaidi iliyotuleta ni kutaka kujua
fujo za waasi iliyokwenda Koro;iwe pamoja na iBana Shebuge
tokoo lake ni lipi. Mdoe akaendelea kumjibu Jumbe Omari
kwamba Jumbe Shebuge alipofika Korogwo a].l:: ],id' na'Bwana
D.C. kuwa wale watu nitawakomesha usiwe na wasiwasi, ila
yeye Bwana Shebuge hakulaudhuria a'.iipofahyiwa baraza ya kuko-
meshwa. Bwana Mlugu Kiluwa Shebuge. Akasema ;kuwa pia yoye
mwenyewe Bwana Shebuge kwa jambo hilo walikomeshwa kwa njia gani.
Jumbe Omari na Wazee wote waliohudhuria hawakutoshoka jinsi
ya maelezp ya kukomoshwa kIwao.

2. Wazee yakashangaa sana na kujadiliana juu ya kitendo
hiki kikubwa kuliko vyote walivyoviona tangu Usambaa kuwa
na Utawala' Wakaona kuwa.ni ajabu kuona jambo hilo halikupa
hukumu iliyojulikana. Wakaanza kulinganisha na desturi za kikwao
wakaona kwamba mtu yeyote akimtukana baba au mtu mwingine
hupata hnikumu kama akipclekwa barazani hushikwa faini. bona
hawa haijulikani hukumu yao na kushindwa hkao yaani; kesi
hiyo haikutazamiwa pahali popote imeachwa tu. Ingawa kwa
ujumla wanajitapa kuwa tunafanya hivi Ika mapatano ya Bv.
D.C. wa Korogwc lakini sisi hatusadiki sana kwani twajua
kuwa ..inn- D.C. ni ~;',i n: wa Shoria hawezi kuingia. Katika

USTHIRIKA WA WASHAITA A NA VAKILINDI. Watu wa Ikutano wali-
furahi sana sana wakataka jina libadilivwe chama hiki .kiitwe
Ushirika wa Wenyeji wa Usambaa". Kwa sababu waliona luwva
Ushambae ina koo 33 na hawa wote ni "Washambaa kwa hiyo
wakaona jina liandikwe kama.walivyosema.

moja ambalo lililo tangazwa siku zilizopita yaani "WATENDAJI"'.
Kwa hiyo mkutano unaomba 'serkali kuu watu hawa' wawepo wasa-
idiane na Mlazumbe watendaji _kma ilivyofikiriwa siku zilizo-
pita.

wametoka mojaja ma miongoni mwv nchi zao6 na mazumbb wamewaachia

8. Mkutano umeona kwamba ni afadhali watu wanaochanga
fedha katika nchi ya Bwana Shebuge bila ya ruhusa yake wala
ya Zumbe mwen4e nchi wakamatwe tgngu sasa, maana wanacneza
gasia na kunyang'atony mali za watu.

9. Mkutano uliomba afadhali Bwana Shebuge aandike barua
kwa waongozi wa Miscion za Lutheran kuuliza kwamba urafiki
umekwisha umebaki uadui na fitina'tu? Kwa .sababu umeonekana
kwamba viongozi maarufu wa uasi wanatoka katika kanisa hili,

Tumeshangaa sana kuona kuwa nyinyi wote mmekaa
kimya baada ya kuona kitendo hiki kilicho tendwa na watu
wenu, kitendo ni cha kumuondoa Bwana Shcbuge wenu katika
kiti chake cha hoshima mlichomweka. Kimefanywa na watu
wanne walio wajumbe wa mkutano wa 23 Juni huko Eushoto
ambao ulikuwa.na watu 380 ambao ni wanatoka katika nchi
zenu.

2r. Ni ajabu kIuona kikundi cha kutosha kama hiki msiweze
kukizuia au kukishtaki kwa uchafuzi kinachomfanya. Bila
shaka rsai wote tunaamini kuwa nyinyi mwatosha kabisa kuzuia
uasi kama-huu, kwa kukataza watu wenu kuhudhuria mikutano
michafu.kama.hiyo' Kama vile Zumbe mwenzenu wa Mtae alivyo-
fanya siku moja kumhukumu mtu anaechafua nchi yake kvwn kufitini

kulinda amani ya nchi yenu.

3. Wote waliohudhuria walipojadiliana ,:.liangu.kia
mahali panapofanana kuwa nyinyi yawapasa kufanya kazi-yenu
kwa kupatana na wajibu wenu wa kwanza ni kumheshimu Bwana
Shebuge wenu ndipo ruwafundishe watu wenu kumtii na kurheshimu












Bwana Shebuge wenu. Lakini .niyi 'wenyewe sasa mna hakika
kuwa watu hawa wamefanya kitendo ambacho hata nyinyi wenyowe

Snanyi mu miongoni mwa waasi huwa. Yametujia kwa kuona
hakuana hata..kitendo chochote mlichokitenda kwa watu
walivunja tendo le'nu, Yaani huyu hawakumweka wao ila

1) Watu hawa ingawa wamewakataza kuendelea na nasi
wao, umewapa hukumu gani?

kubwa kabisa ambalo nalijafanyika' katika nchi yetu tangu
tangu kuwako ufalme katika milima ya Usambaa.'

The ruler of Usambara may be deposed .as King
Sharlos I was- by Execution*37

Palikuwa na mfalme .rmoja katika Uingeroza'katika
mwaka 1629 jina lake Charles', na mfalme huyu alikuwa hataki
kusikia mashauri ya raia zake waliochaguliwa na watu wenyewe
ili wawatolee shida zao katika Halmashauri ambayo kwa kiingere-
za inaitwa, Houses of Parliament mpaka.hivi leo' Kwa kuwa raia
zakehawakutaka tabia yake, yaani ile ya kutokutaka kupingwa
katika shauri lolote, ilimlazimu kuifunga Halmashauri hiyo.
Na' pia kwa kuwa alioa Bint Mfalme wa Ufaransa, alilazimisha raia
wafuate madhehebu ya Roman Catholic kwa nguvu, na raia wali-
pokataa, alianza kuwafanyia vita, lakini kwa ushujaa wa mtu
ramoja jina lake Cromwell, mfalme nguvu zake zilimwishia na
akawa na madeni mengi sana kwa sababu wakati alipokuwa akie-
ndesha mambo ya nchi, peke yake alitunga. sheria nyingi za
kuongeza kodi, na raia walikataa kulipa kodi'hizo, maana
waliona heri kufa kuliko kutii amri za narina hiyo yanni za
kutungwa na mtu poke yake. Alipoona kuwa hana njia nyingine
ya kufaulu, aliwaita washauri wa Halmashauri, lakini wakati
huo alikuwa hana uwezo wake wa zamani ila alijaa deni tupu,
na Mwishowe akafa kwa kukatwa kichwa katika mwaka 1649'.

Hi nii hadithi ya-I.falme aIm~yo vitendo vya mfAlme
'huyo 1649 vyalingana sana na vitendo vya Mhfalmo wetu wa
Sam'baani, aimbaye anajipenda yoye miv-i':w A na wanase.- Kwamba
yeye baada ya kukataa mashauri mema yaliyotolewa na rain
zake nvamba kifonywe chama chq Sambaa nzima, ili raia.wawe na
umoja na kuendosha mambo ya nchi alikataa, na sisi sasa kwa
kuona nguvu zako karibu kumwishia, ynsemokana kwamba anaanza
:kukusanya ndugu zakc wa Kilindi ili wawe na chama cha Waki-
lindi poke yao, na-hii ni upuuzi kabisa utakaoleta vita baina
ya Wakilindi na "V7::...l-:2 wenye nchi. Na hii ni kweli. kabisa
kama -Wakuu wetu Waingereza hawakufanya hhraka ya kumwondoa
mtu huyu ambae ndiye atakayezaa fitina Sambaani lazima kuwe
na vita vya watu hawa na vita.hivi vitakuwa juu yak, kvwa
sababu Wasanbaa hawakumchagua, Mkilindi ni mtu mwingine na
Msambaa na mtu mwiinine, maana Msambaa.hajaweka Zumbe wa
kabila lingine ila :n:ilini.:i tu.. Sasa yeye afanya chama cha
Wakilindi ili kuwafundisha kuwa Wasambaa na Wakilindi ni
mbalimbali. Na hii ni shauri yake Serkali kuamua ugomvi huu
na lkumwondoav mtu huyumwenye kuzaa fitina niauharibifu

1. K 'uwaunganisha Wasambaa wote wawo mmoja, bila ya kufikiri
ukoo, ill wapate kushirikiana katik kuendesha pambo yao yana-
yohusu maendeleo ya nchi nzima.

,2.'.-- Kujaribu kutafuta njia za kila namni ambazo-zitaweza
kuistawisha Usambara ili iwe nchi ya raha na starehe kwa kila
mkaaji wa humo.

3. Kulinda haja n. hakizahaaiza hlal a kila ratu. Nasi
tulio viongozi wa cham a hiki hapa Usambara tutajaribu kila
njia ili maIusudi hayoyatimie.

S4. Kupigania haki ili ipatikane kva -kila mtu bila .y
:..k.uit:z-t7i.r mtu huyo wa ukoo gani au wa hali gani.

, 5 Kujaribu kuwajulisha wanachama wote nia na makusudi mema
,wanayofikiriwa na mawakili wa Serikali. Kwa sababu tunayo
hakika kuwa .kila anactaka'kufanyiwa mambo ya faida na Ser-
kali, inamlazimu yeye mwenyewe kwanza kuonyesha kwa vitendo kuwa
astahili mambo hayo. Na tumeona kuwa hayo hayawezokani kufa-
nyika bila kuungana kwanza

Kwa kuwa hivi karibuni tumepata kusikia uvumi mwingi
ambao nia yake hasa ni kutaka kuvunja chama hiki klaa kutoa
mambo ambayo ni ya kukosanisha hao wanachama na mawakili wa.
Serkali, tumoona ni ubora kutoa maoni ya kupinga na kukanusha
uvumi huo'

(1), Chama kinazuia wanachama wao wasilipe kddi wala kutii
amri yoyote ya serkali. Huu ni uvuni ambao ni wa hatari sana
maana wale walioufanya wamedhani Msambaa ni mbwa mkichaa,
ambae huuma mkono ule ule umpao chakula, kwa sababu:

(a) hivi sasa Wasambaa wamo katika hali ya kua lka
usingizini, na kwa hakika hakuna mtu yeyote atakayewaongoza
katika njia ya maendeleo hayo baada ya kuiasi Serkali ni
nani watakaemtazamia kuwaongoza katika njia hiyo waitakayo?
(b) na maendeleo hayo wayatakayo hayawezi kuwa bila fedha
joe wadhaniwa huwa hiyo ndiyo nia ya hayo maendeleo waya
takayo yatapatikanaje? Lakini kveli watu hao ni wale wanao
taka wenyowe kati ya watu kujifaidia wenyewe kati ya watu-
wapumbavu, kva hivi kujaribu kilo .njia waliyo nayo kuwa
inaweza kupinga maendeleo ya Wasambaa. ITo kwa hivi. baada
ya njia hizo kushindwa, wameona njia bora ni i:ul.;-:~.i :.'!
watu hawa na Serkali. Na hao wakuu wa Serkali wakiwa na pupa
wanaweza kuamiini mambo kama hayo na mwishowe kukosana na
rairn. Na vitendo vilivyofanyika hivi juzi juzi, turleona
kuwa propaganda zilizotumiwa na watu hao zimeingia mnsikioni
mwa wakuu wa 'Serkali, lakini tunasikitika kuwa yoto waliyosema
hao jamaa ni uwongo mtupu. Ila tunajua kuwa watu hao watakayo
ni kuwa hali ya Wasambaa wakiwa a njia ya 1:i-'':.v-'c:zsh kuji-
tetea kwa unoja kila waonapo hawatendewi haki utukufu.wao-:
utatuweka. Lakini tunawasikitikia sana kwa 'l.vi walkitaka
maendeleo yatapatikana kwa bidii.getu wasipotaka hali
kadhalika, madnd liatuoni kuwa iko haki kuzuia mnaondeleo
ya watu wengi bila sababu yoyote ila ile ya 'kulinda utukufu
wa watu wachache tu...

J nbo la kusikitisha ni kuwa hivi sasa katika
Usambara wako wahachama wengi ambao hawaruohusiwi kabisa kukutana
lakini kwa, kuwa-lawanachama hao wanaona hakuna njia yoyote ya kuleta

mawazo kama hayo hayaleti maana ila chuki na na machafuko
nchini. Lakini baada.ya kuwasoma Wasambaa, tumeona nia
yao hasa ni kuungana pamoja.- Kwa mfano: baada ya kuuliza
sana baadhi ya vijana wa Usambaa, tumeona kuwa ingawa hivi
;:.'-sasa hawamtaki Sultanii, lakini si kana km/amba ni nia yao kumweka
Msambaa awe mtawala Vuga, ila .watamchagua hikilindi nwenye

Sababu yetu ya kuona kuwa hii ndio nia ya chana
,hiki, kuwa chana hicho hakikuaohwa wakati huo wote ila Bwana
S Sultani alipoona kuwa raia zake hawamtaki. Kuhakikisha kuwa
hii ni kweli ni kuwa aliwafukuza raia" zake na.hizi kabila
m. bili anazotaka kutonganisha hivi leo, waliponwendea .katika
"mwiaka 1945 il .kLnaomba idhini ya kufanya chama cha kufazama
shida za nchi nzima. Na wakati huo hata Bwana Cadiz ambae
S alikuwa D.O. i/c wakati ulo alikuwapo nae alijaribu kumbembeleza

(4) Hi nini ya ckufanywv a n Wakuu wa Serkail

Si ci tfohavyo ni kuwa uliyowabakia mawakili wa Serkali ya
;falme':mtukufu'ni '(a) kuwaridhisha watawala. wa Serkai. ya
wenyeji, wasemao "hatuw.ezi kubadili asili yetu kwva kuruhusu
'mabadiliko ambayo yataleta. maendeleo yatakiwayo na ulinwongu
wa leo au'.(b) kuwaridhisha raia ambao waietoka wote kutaka
mendeleo.-yatakiwayo na ulimwengu wa kisasa baada ya kuoha
kuwa-wat.awala wao hawataki wakiynpata. Baada ya maelezo haya,
.tunatunaini siku zijazo mawakili wa*Serkali ya Mfalme wetu
Mtukufu hawatasikiliza au kusadiki uvumi wowote ambao unao-
nyosha chuki na husuda kati yao na wanachama kwanza kabla
ya kutafuta ukwoli wa uvuni huo kwa kutuuliza sisi tulio
viongozi .wa chama kwa kutuandikia ama kuita mrnoja wetu.
Maana katika maoni yetu tuonavyo ni kuwa umoja wa Wasambaa hau-
tafana bila ya msaada na nashauri yenu. Maana tunao uhakika
kuiwa chama hiki kikifana .itakuwa baraka kuu kwa Usanbara
nzima .

Hata tunataka kukuthubutishia maneno yetu.ya
kusema kuwa baadhi ya Watawala wa Serkali ya kienjeji hawataki
maendeleo ya kisasa. Chama hiki ni wazi Inka kila Mwafrika
.lakini mpaka hivi sasa.hakuna mtawala yeyote aliyejaribu kuuli-
za makusudi na nia ya chama hiki. Nasi tunaona ajabu imewe-
zekanaje nchi nyingine raia.na watawala wao wakaweza'kufanya
vyama vya .kuendesha nchi zao, lakini hapa Usambaa ikaonekana
kuwa haiwezekani?

5.'i~ Katika hotuba .aliyoitowa Bwana Lord Gonbormd tarehe
35'12.'42 katika Halmashauri iitwayo House of Lords, ambayo
ilitoa wazi mwongozo (policy) ya Sarkali ya MIfalme ntukufu
,kuhusu maendeleo ya watu wa Makoloni, lipo fungu moja ambalo
hasa linatuhusu, no fungu lenyewe ni hili:
"'Wakati huo huo.tutajaribu kuwatayarisha
watu wa makoloni ili waweze kuendoCha mambo
yao wenyowe i 1wa muda nuo wa KuJl awaa
upo karibu ama ukiwa uko mbali."

M aneno hayo ni mazuri na yakupendeza yanapo-
somwa na Waafrika wenye-elinu na maarifa .ya kisasa. Lakini
wakati huo huo wanafikiri kuwa maneno hayo yatatimiaje ikiwa
zaidi'ya. kuwekwa utawala wa wenyeji mikoni mwa watu wasio na
elimu, watawala hao wamejaa wivu na kijicho na kumchukia
Mwafrika.yeyote aliye na elimu na naarifa ya kisasa ambaye
anayo hamu na shauku nyingi za kutaka .kuona mabadiliko
ambayo yataweza siku moja kutimiza maneno ya Bwana huyo
ambayo ndio mwongozo wa Serkali ya Mfalme. Mtukufu kwa watu
wa nakoloni yake'









27.


Like neno moja ambalo tunalisadiki nalo ni
kuwa, badiliko lolote la kuhusu utawalo wa wenyoji kana liki-
anzishwa na .-awakkili wa Serkali peke yao bila shaka, linaweza
kulotamachafuko ikiwa utawala huo ungali ukipendelewa na
raia, .lakini;kana mabadiliko hayo yataanzwa kutakiwa na
wenyeji, katika maoni yetu tunaona kuwa yana..kutokea ikiwa
mabadiliko, yatakiwayo yatachelewesha bila sababu za haki na
kut.osha* -

They pointed out that the present Mugu is proof of this, as he
belongs to neither of these t-wo families can the Shebuge
making his choice he calls the "Watawa" of Vuga to confirm
his choice' The "Watawa" 'would appear to be the elders of the
Council ("Wafumwa") and also any other old men of good report
living in the vicinity of Vuga, (a more precise definition
I could not get, but I think there must be some way of
deciding more definitely, who can and who cannot attend and
on my next visit to Vuga I will try.again). Note Cory states
that a "Mtawa" is the leader of the "Wangoshi" of a kijiji.
If the "Watawa" object to his choice.the Shebugo will accept
their decision and chose somebody else to whom they have no
objection.

Mlugu must be from one of the two families Wakia-Kwavi or

-Nimiopta kusikia matokeo ya nkutano wa Wazumbe na
.wajunbe engine panoja na D.C. wetu uliofanyika tarohe 26
January, 1948 Monbo. 'Kuwa Bwana D.C. atayateobolea mabaraza ya
Usambara kwa kupata haki ya uchaguzi wa ntawala wa Usambara....
Nionavyo mini, ziko sababu za kufahamu kwanza kabla ya kunweka
mtawala wetu hapa Usambara.

(a) Kumchaguwa mtawala yafaa tukunbuke ya kuwa, si
wote wawezao kutawala, yafaa ingawa wana elimu; ila
wale waliopewa uwozo'na Bwana Mungu. Kwa hiyo yafaa
kuyategenea haya mawili, "Uwezo wenye hekirma na Elimu".
Kama tukichagua elimu tu, shabaha ya nia yetu ya kupata
Mtawala na kuendesha na kuinua Usambara haitafaulu,'

(b) Linalowatia watu kutangaangnga ni kwa kuwa watawala
wa Usanbara wamejichafua kwa kujitenga na raia zao kwa
kujifanya kabila jingine yaani Wakilindi. Kweli asili
yao ni Kilindi kama nhli.rwil,~i walivyoihgia.hapa kutoka
huko na huko katika makabila mbali mbali., ingawa hivyo
wao hawajidai kwa nakabila'yao ila hu.jiitea-Wishambala..

I am, directed by my Working Committee of the above
menti ..1 iUni., to approach to approach and request t.he
Central Government and the Inative Administration of Usanbara
to issue strict orders to stop entry of girls and young boys
under 12 years of age into Tanga area.

There have been cases where women after coning to
Tanga and finding no one to support have been forced on
compelled to lead a prostitute life. If at all entry is
granted aftc satisfying the authorities that they are
either accompanying their husbands or have sono relations
to support then.
Young boys having coning to work as lhousc boys are
only wasting time instead of doing something for their
future prospects'

w:: "": y working coinittee suggests that young people should
be sent to schools whereby they could draw some profit for their
country's progress.

I should be very much obliged if you could give your
sympathetic consideration to-the above requests'.

I acknowledge with thanks the receipt of your U/W/7,
of 20th February, 1948.

and am-considering taking further action in this matter.
Ivould s- .'-.t that your Association examine the
provisions of the children and'Young Persons Ordinance, with
amending legislation, as this has relevance in this
connection.

Further, though your association, you can encourage
the repatriation to-Usanbara of such undesirable residents.

nipate kujua ni njia gani ninayokusudia kuziweka fedha salama
za W.ii.ie- -i-. Kwa hiyo nitahudhuria -kutano mimi mwenyewe
ili nipate kusikia matakayozungumza., Ikutano usifanywe mpaka
niwepo.

I have the honour to inform you that it has been
reported to me that the sub-chief of lMobo Branch of our
Union (T.U,) front holding their regular meetings for no
other reason than this:

"Wazungu wa Serkali kila mara wakifika hapa wananiuliza
Hapa Monbo kipo chama? Sisi watumishi wa Serkali tunawraabia
kama hapa halkuna chama".

I believe that the sub-chief in question is either
biased or mis informed about the activities of our Unions
So to prevent further misunderstandings, I have thought it
wise to bring up the complaint to you earlier.

It would be most expedient I hope, if you would be so
kind as to give him nh official opinion about our Union lest
he mistakes us for the undesirable African Association "
(Usambara Branch),

I have the honour to be, Sir.

D.C. Lushoto makes a ruling that:T,U
should be allowed to hold meetings*5,

ITwandishi rkuu wa Chama cha Tunaini la Usambara amenia-
ndikia barua kusema kama wowe ulizuia mkutano wa wanachama.
mimi sijasikia kwamba iko sababu yoyote ya chama hicho kizuiwe
kufanya rkutano wao. Basi tafadhali uafaka nieleie na kuni-
julisha ni sabea',t gani iwezayo kuzuia Chama hiki kisifanye
mkutano hapo EI onbo.

The "''Clhri_- is not beneficial and does not represent

I forward herewith a letter signed by four well-known
Clirtan menobers though Isaka Hoza himself does not a ppear.
It is typical of the sort of distortion that always occurs
when they report anything said by Government. I will
comment paragraph by paragraph.

Para 3. It is regularly claim. -",,t either the Chama is
the people or as in this case, 'h people delegated
to the Chama the duty of complaining to you. In fact
they claim here that the Chama tried to keep the people
from offending the Government.

Para 4: They try to put offences into individuals and
dissociate the Chama itself from them,

but with the addition that it was your order that -Iputa'be
chosen. I. merely said that your approqval.was necessary.

ara. This refers to the fact -that I said that all the Wazee
had been called and had chose Mputa. I addeded that money of
the '-ce had not tuned up but they had bei n.ywarned .to come and
those present had agreed unanimously.

I told the people that I 'iew there was frnation
resisting the appointment of Hputa but that I had followed
custom in asking the Wazee to choose. I only have chosen
and the people must accept this'. P..Four men car:i to my office next
day, denying that they represented the Chama at all (though two
of them were recorded leaders), and asked permission for the
people to choose again,

ParA and' i: In choosing the electoral colleges I always
said I would not accept recognized leaders of the Chama but
that I had no objections to members provided they wero -c
among the executives, .I. accepted the fact that the membership
was large and probably included most of the intelligent people.
Parai3: I have already announced that Shebuge I:Logo will
n'ot bd' accepted as chief again, but I did not refer to Mputa'
Para 14: The Tunaini Society is named as tbco Sl, l.U;mes
partly though I have no evidence for that. The adopted the
name Usambara Union, before the Chama informed one of their
adoption of the same name.

2. The Chama apparently feel that they can still
claim your sympathetic attention although they .,must have heard your
views. The essential thing is that we do not accept them as
representing the people.and it is useless their continually
identifying themselves with the country. Government has annou-
nced firmly that the history of the Chama shows that it is not
a benefitial society and for that reason if no other I see
no reason for treating with .them.._ It seems very .difficult
to convince them that it is Government as a whole and not
particular individuals which rejects them.

Ninaheshima kubwa mbele yako kukuletea maneno yangu
haya..

a) Shbabu yenyowe ni ajabu kwa watu wa Usambara kumtukana
mfalne -na kumsukuma na kunkataa Sultani wao aliye waleya siku
nyingi miaka 18.

b) Ikiwa Shebugo ana makosa juu ya raia zake inaonyesha
si poke yake makosa hayo ni panoja na mazume wake wakuu.

c) Ikiwa nchi haina mashule. Ama hakuna biashara.
Ama hakuna ukulima mwema. Ama zimewekwa sheria mbaya kwa
maraia yaneombwa na nani yakakataliwa.

d) Mlazumbe ni 18 LIidome 18 wazee 36 walio chini
yao paiaoja na mazunbe wao wadogo nasio wajua hesabu yao. Na
kila junbe ana mzee 1 kazi gani waifanyayo katika mabaraza.
2 ninaona wakishughulika kukusanya kodi. Na kutimiza kulimiza
barabara wakati Bwana D.C. akitaka kuwatembolea ndipo njia
za kando hukumbukwa kusafishwa. Akishapita Bwana D.C. nyasi
huziba njiani,

e) Bwana Shebuge mwenyewe Vuga ana wazee-(6) kazi yao
wazee hao ni nini? Hawa woto hungoja kila fedha ya raia
katika nchio Hiyi watumishi hao wangefikiriwa. Kwa nini
raia hao,...walipovunja heshima ya mfalme mazumbe wakuu
walifanya nini? Ikiwa walishindwa walipcloka mashtaka
kwa Serkali kuu nbele ya mkuu gani,

iliyokusanywa, Stakabadhi zionyeshe jina la chama na
kutiwa sahihi na mtu anaeipokeafedha..

Lazima ueleze katika bara zazako kuwa ikiwa ageni:'
anakuja :.ukllus il.:-~ kwa watu-.kwa, ajili ya. chana bila shaka
anakusanya ~fedha hiyo kuitia katika f nfuko wake mwenyewe
wala si ya kuwasaidia watu wanaoitoa. Watu wanaweza.
kuanzisha chaia wakipata ruhusa ya Zunbe na vyama
vinavyofaa ni vyana vya kujenga xasikiti au kuzika
waliokufa au jambo la kuwasaidia wanachama wote.

Ungewambia. hawo watu " ya chama katika nchi yako kuwa huwataki katika nchi

Bwana mkubwa kuwa je tukipewa IMtawala mpya Vuga na
akiitwa Kimweri, na ni wa ile ile Nyunba Kuu atapewa
Waziri?

F. Na kama tutapewa Waziri kuwa nae mtawala wetu yaani
ajuaye kiingereza je kwa nini kunuondoa Shebuge Izee
na kunbe, utawala huu wa Vuga kama utawekewa waziri
nwenye maarifa?

G. Katika michoro yangu ya B naligusia kusema utawala wetu
ndio una namlaka ya kufanya janbo lolote litakalo na
yarudia tena hayo Kuyasema bwana nkubwa *.. Je mzee
Shebuge Magogo bin Kinweri ameachishwa kazi na nyinyi
wakuu wa Serkali au ameachishwa na wanachama
(Wachafuzi wa Usambaa).

Ikiwa aaeachiswha kazi na wanachaa kwva nini basi
hauuwapi mtawala wanaomtaka? Na yashuhulike Serkali
kutenbea hulku na huko kuwaambia watu wachague mtawala
wa Usanbaa?

I. Nielewavyo mfalme kupata msuko suko ni mahali pake
sababu huwatawala raia wa nanna mbali mbali .

The sub-chiefs and the people will not actually choose

with heartful pleasure to your Excellehcy nd 'your
assistants in. the Government Dar es Salaar. who have chosen.
Mr. Pigott to become D.C. 'and to sond him to iy country
Ushacbaa: to assist : the country of Ushambaa-which was
in confusion on account of the disturbance of the
Washambaa from 25rd Junef, 1947 up to .23rd June, 1948 when
it started quieting down on account of installating me,
Mputa IMaogo, as. Kimweri of 'Ushambaa.

Resignation of the ShebugeMaTgogo Kinweri, Chief 'bf
Vuga, greatly astonished the Washaibaa ,,iho' strive for$i''
their country not to be without a. ruler, :-When: they. he ard,
the P.C0 .saying -tht 'Usambaa would repair for 2 'years
without a chief, Ruler that it should be' under sub- hiefs ..,:'
only, they found this great misery and unbearable. 26
think of Ushambaa,:vwithout a chief, -:as they kno hw hothe'-:
Rule of Usl.hbaa .is-very great aind how it ruled "any
tribes which-are g-reat :from' the time of their anoestors,. '
they could not sleep,, spending all the nights considering::
ways and means which could bring back the rule. They
even wrote letters to your assistants in the Government
petitioning that peace should be brought back-in the' .
Ushambaa, Your assistants listened--to-their petition
and your Excellency consulted with your assistants in
the Govt and selected Mr. Piggotti to be the D.0, of
Ushanbaa, .. .. '...

Your servant the D.C. Mr. Piggott whom you sent to this"
country has made very great efforts to quite Ushambaa,
The D.C. is clever, wise and of much understanding he-:'
travels many miles on foot in order to see any sort of
person. He held many snall barazas.'in the remote parts'of
the country accusing people to ,leave sabversive acts and,
a great many have taken his advice; it is even correct to
say there is no more trouble. This DC. deserves of
more ranks than..what, he., at. present has for the Croat work
he has done to bring back peace to y -country.

I with pleasure thank .our. Provicial Corissiioner.. of..
the Tanga. Province 'together.,with, our *0C., of Lusho-to for. ....
appointing N.A. Council in my country which is a new

well like other civilised countries.

I beg his Excellency the Governor of Tanganyika
Territory and his Assistants'of His Majesty Government to place
Usambaa in History that.it. majy not be divided., -also to consider
means for its good progress. Also I'bog his assistants not to
.forget the trouble-which took place in this country,~that
it will be recorded in.the History so that when they select
DOts and ADO's they may not select officers who are not intere-
sted in the progress of my country that such trouble should not
happen .again because this country is full of mischief makers'
and selfish indeed who do not want to see others in positions'
These thanks I give not only on my behalf but I give
on behalf of all the tashambaa who have the progress and peace
of the country in their minds to equal other progressive and
peaceful countries. I serve as their mouth and wish to know
that your subjects in'Ushambaa are very glad to get .their
Ruler within a shorter period than they expected'. -

May Almighty God Bless His Majesty King "Gorge VI
and grand him lohg life'and prosperity to his colonies and,
your Excellency his representative, may God grant you
long/life and govern us with kindness and justice and as we are
lucky enough to have your lodge built in Lushoto we beg that
your eyes be on our country always, God may bestow blessings on
your work and long and happy life. Amen. I am your humble and
obedient servant.

na mazungumzo nikatoa nafasi kwa watu wapumzike kwanza
Sna kuzidi kufikiri, watu wakapumzika tukakaa mpaka saa-
tano ni kama saa nzima niliyotoa nafasi kwa saa moja nzima,
tukaanza-:baraza kwa kuhojiana. Katika kuhojiana nikasema
watu wa Gare hawakupata mtu wa kuweza kushika kazi ya
Uzumbe ila katika nikapata ushahidi mbele ya baraza hiyo
watu 3 .Musa Shetuli, Juma Pungo, na Mhamadi bin Baruti
hawa wakasema hapa Gare hatapatikana Zumbe afadhali wewe
mwenyewe atupe Zumbe. Hapo nikamuambia Mdoe wa Gare kuwa
ikiwa watu wa Gare wameshindwa kutoa Zumbe wa kufaa kwa
hiyo mimi nikamuambiaMdoe kuwa Zumbe wa Gare atakuwa .
Hamisi bin wvanyoka wa Sheshin. Watu wa Gare hawana shaka
j uu'ya huyu Hamisi Mwanyoka wanenikubalia niwape Zumbe
S kwa hiyo Bwana nakujulisha kuwa watu wa Gare hawakuweza
kupata zumbe ila mini nimcwapa Hamisi Mwanyoka awe Zunbe
wa Gare, nani sina mtu niliyeona ila huyo Hamisi.

The absence of a suitable candidate among the
SLocal Claimants necessitates the appoitment of
iHamisi hlwanyoka as sub-chief of Gare*B

Sub-Chief Gare

Sub-Chief Salehe .ltoi resigned at Gare in January
1948. No immediate attempt was made to find a successor at that
tine owing to the general disturbance caused by the activities
of the African Association, which had a largo following at
Gare. A temporary sub-chief was appointed, Salim S/o Mtoi who
had been Ju-ibe of Gare area.. He was young and one of the
possible appointees as sub-chief. He proved, however,, fairly
ineffective and Gare has been a backward area for some time.
I went into succession carefully with the elders some months
ago and found that there was no one who had a. better claim or
was likely to be a better uncunbert than Salim s/o.'jtoi. The
result was that I left things as they were in..the .hope that
some things eight turn up to -give a suggestion for a better
solution.

Chief Ki.iweri of V'i.i_ has i;,- .looking around at the

Kikuu to sound the elders of Gare in advance and that he
follow later.himself and'hold 'abaraza. This was done and
S according. to his- report the elders did not object to Hanisi
Iwvanyoka when. -e. had-.explained' that no other claimant .was
s .tirfac tor.'. :-.

'. .' .I' followed this: "' by a baraza of about 100 persons
: -- : -including the Jumbes and elders.' I held, this on 5th December
,. at, pare. baraza and explained the vwhol-. history .of. the. reason
'fpr not accepting any of the local claimants. ,lost people
seemed-fairly..satisfied and those in the traditional ruling
, r. family.accepted:the facts that I was hot prepared to accept any
of their.claimants. At the end of the baraza everyone said
.. they had nothing further to:say and accepted the new sub-chief.
:,,. It:was made clear that the district office was only two hours
walkaway.:and any complaints would be head. If the evidence
.. was there, appropriate,action would be taken.
I.request your approval therefore to the appointment,'of
Hamisi Mwanyoka as sub-chief of Gare on probation for 1 year'

:Hamisi lwanyoka's appointment is approved'
by'ltheP 1?e P.C. -X8

With reference to your saving No. 43/30/1.7 of the 6th
Decenbrr, I note the appointment of Hanisi -Mwanyoka as.
Sub-Chief 'of Gare on probation for one year, and confirm it.

The Tanganyika Government.did not treat
the Washaibala as freemen when it put
Mputa Magogo 'to be t chief' of the 'whole TUsambara*83

We beg to submit the following for favour of your
consideration and asking you to draw attentionto the
matter by'a question in the above House of Commons.....
As '-asl-!:'al': people have found out that
nothing will be done locally unimlcE directions are issued
from the United Kingdom.

It ..: ,is about a year or so we Shambala people aro under
hot. water.,as to what has:m b:-:i- dealt with by the Tanganyika
Government which it is unlawful the reason for being persecuted
;;:stands to when we gave .the Tan--ai:yika Government one view
without fear, when wemade the critical selection of the
j concerned Prince Abraham :-ruta s/o Late Sultan Solomon
;Bila Kimweri, -as wished by an the Shambala peopleoand the
truth were arrtn,,ed by the very stranger '.C. Mr. H.D.
Pigot:who:lwas appointed by the Tanganyika Government to work
.:-after the Shar.in: la- matters, ..We wished the above Prince A.M.
Bila to take place'iof the Ex. Regent Magogo K. who had to
resign since 25th .October, 1948 as the''isi-',lbaa did niot want
him, and who was only a heir of the Late Sultan Solomon Bila








61'.


s/o Kimweri who died on June 19th, 1929 while sons of
Slomon Bila K. were about 8- 10 years of age.

But Mr. MI.D. Pigot appointed Mputa as Ruler of Usanbara.."
this happened behind the curtains. This D.C. mostly made the
affairs in alter confusion and the Shanbala wish was completely
(bunglet)? It is quite pity.

:h.in the poor Prince Abraham .'.D.t. Bila endeavoured
to sece the D.C. Mr. Pigot for favour for interviews both with
the P.C. Tanga..Mr. Pigot reached to the point of tolling the
poor Prince Abraham;.-. Billa that "if he felt much sorry
to leave his rights of chicfncss right go to the sea and
sink'".,.. '' ."

When we, :telephoned '-to the P.C. Tanga and to his
Excellency the Acting Gc'svr: c,.Dar es ;l:.-_, : and wrote to
then, and went to the District Officer to explain persecuted
puttingthem into jail and beating them. As we tried'to send
our complaints-to Dar.es Salaam those who did so were badly
punished by the District, Commissioner. So our lives lie on threats
our Usambara country where the Tanganyika Government has done
a slavery action, the country under the flag of British Empire,
we regret.

We blame the Tanganyika Government for.....
We are badly treated as sheep without 3h._'pherd. '
We are in one accord, And Lord God will, help use.

The 'subversive form an impotent minority though
''* they. can carry out Propaganda*84.

I ram directed to refer to an unsigned copy of a letter
addressed to Mr.. Victor Collins, M.P., c/o House' of Commons, from
Mombo, copies of which are.stated to have cb:-n sent to you and to
the District Commissioner, complaining about the present set-tp
in Usambara, and claiming, that Hputa Bila, not Mputa Iagog6, should
have been appointed Chief. It is not thought that any great
significance need be attached to this missive which is apparently
an attempt to stir up trouble by the subversive and it is .hoped
now impotent minority, but I an to ask that if, you consider an
enquiry as to its origin desirable, you will advise us of the
result in due course.

The chiefs success will strengthen his
position and weaken that of his' enem s'80i

"' :Oplaint about Chief

I do not consider that an enquiry is necessary., The
letter was post -d in Tanga and its writer would be 'difficult-
to trace.

Tanga has plenty of dissatisfied Wasa-baa and for
the present they are not significant. I am hoping that with
increasing prestige of the chief their influence will continue
to wane.

Janbo lililonipendeza znid1i:ni yakuwa katika safari
yake anegundua chana kipya huko M1lalo watu kana 51 na katika
hao ikapatikana 29/=. Selenani akawanyang'anya akaziweka ni-
kononi nwa Zumbe wa Mialo na hizo ndio zilizofanya jumla ya
43/= katika hesabu ya l2lalo. Na huko Matae kadhalika kime-
patikana chana cha watu kadiri ya watu 44 katika hao
zinepatikana fedha 25/- nazo akazichukua akaziweka nikononi
mwa Zunbe wa Mtae ndizo zilizofanya jumla ya 80/= katika
hesabu ya Mtae hapo.juu.

Na huko Mwangoi amegundua Shs.31/- ambazo zimetiwa
katika Chama cha Muslim School.chini ya Ranadhani :Mwvinyiheri
hizo.asema hana hakika kama zitapatikana kwa kuwa mnwnye
kutunza fedha hizo sasa yuko Tanga*.

Mimi ningependelea zaidi kama watu wale waliozusha vyama
vyao vipya .e.:i_. .'it.,kine katika nabaraza'yao na kupatiwa
adhabu ya kutosha illi wengin wapate kujua kwa kuwa wao
wamefanya. vyana vya siri bila Zunbe wao kufahamu na
hivyo nasema Selenani Mbelwa itakuwa vyama akipewa zawadi
kidogo ya kunwondoa .avune kwa ajili ya safari ndefu
aliyosafiri na kupatia faida kata hiyo ya kugund4a vyama
vipya na kutupatia fedha Shs. 582/4' kupunguza Shs.10/-

The alleged secret meeting was nothing more than a family
gathering. 94.


With reference to your No. 1050/514 of 28th September -
concerning an alleged secret meeting at Bombera in which the
Kimweri Zumbe Njatta .Wakili Mhando Mdoe, Athumani Nzige and
John Mukande were present, I did give permission for Zumbe Njatta
to visit Bombuera with the Kimweri on Sunday 4-9-49.

I have interviewed Zumbe Mjatta and Athumani Nzige. The
former states that he and the Kimweri went to Bombueri in a lorry
provided and driven by Athumani Nzige to visit their uncle
(Mhando Mdoe) I have verified this relationship. John Mkande is
Zumbe Mjatta's.brother and also went to see his uncle at his
'invitation.

Zumhe Mjatta claims, that no one else was present at the
meeting and that it was merely a family gathering and by no means
a secret meeting to discuss ways and means of getting the
Korogwe/Tanga boundary altered to the advantage of Korogwe.


What is done to raise standard of education in N.A. Schools

to speed up matters? "

(ii) The steps being taken to put right the low standard of
education in N.A. schools in general, and in the Mission Schools in
Ushambara

(iii) The improvement of the* NoA. Dispensaries in the District.

kuna Wasambaa wengi. Wapare ni ~m ahdhganyiko .wa W7Jbugu na
Wasambaa au Wataita; kwa hiyo hawa nao ni ndugu zeta vile vile.
Kwa hiyo njia rahisi na inayowezekana kuunganisha makabila haya
ni kufanya Baraza moja Kuu, ambalo lina madiwani watakaochaguliva
namna hii:-

a) Baraza la Majumbe Wakuu. (Tanga) liteuvwe -madiwarn wanne,

Tunakuletea salaam za heshima na Bwana sisi Raia zako
wa nchi ya Usaimbaa, baada ya Salamu tunakukdumbusha v.ka Barua yetu
hii habari ya utawala wa nchi yetu ya Usambara siku zote tulikuwa
na masikitiko mengi kwa juu ya jambo hili la uchafuzi wa nobi hii
na baadaye tuliingiv&a'na furaha ya tumaini njema tulipokuofia ewe
kiongozi mwema ukituasilia katika District yetu ya Lushoto, yaani,
unaendesha kazi na kuyasikia maombi ya Raia zako.

Nasisi tumefanya subiri za heshima kama alivyosema mtukufu
wetu Bwana Governor katika mkutano wake mkuu wa tarehe 27/9/49
wa Vuga ambae alituambia kama Wasambara msiwe na shaka yoyote(
mashauri yenu yote nitayaacha kwa wakuu wenu yaani Bwana P.C. Tanga
na Bwana D.C. Lishoto, na ni kweli lakini saas tunic'ubili hata ..
tumaini .zimetutoka.

Na sasa sisi, tunakumbuka vkwamba Serkali yetu haitamaliza
jaabo hili, bali-inatuzungusha tu,. na sasa tunasema kiwaziwazi
kabisa kwamba huyu Kimwieri Magogo si haki yalce kutawala" nchi
hii wala hatukumchagua. Amepata utawala huu kwa njia ya magendo
aliyoyatoa kva Viongozi Wabaya waliokuwa katika nchi hii ya Usambaa.

Na sasa tutafanya jambo baya ambalo halitamp'endeza Bwana
Mltungu wala halita ipendeza Serkali yetu tukufu ya Kiingereza na
.asa sisi wote wa nchi hii ya Usambara tunasema kwa sauti kuu
mbele ya Bwana Mungu na mbele ya Serkali kwamba lkwa muda mfupi
kabisa ,tumejiweka tayari kabisa kabisa kumnyonga mtu huyu Kimweri
*Magogo, Vuga, lokini lawama hilo halitakuwa juu yetu sisi, bali
itakuwa ni juu ya jaImuu wa Serkali ya Bwana Mtngu sibabu ndio

Bwana,

Sulenan Hiza

Nakujulisha luwa mtu huyo alietajwa hapo juu ni raia wako wa
Kitivo cha Mlalo, kijiji cha Ming'.ao, anefariki dunia siku ya
tarehe 14 May 1951 katika hospital kubwa ya Bombo Ta-iga.

Kwa kuwa chona chetu kilichelewa kupata habari ya kifo. .cha
rinrehenzu huyo, nazishi yake yalifanywa na Serikali .ya hospital.
Hivyo iliobaki kwa chana hicho ni kutafuta ni nani ndugu au jirani
wa marehenu huyo ili apelcke kilio rnytu:.bni kwa narehonu, lakini
pia halupatikana.

TL" 'rrL 'raILi sana kaua enzi na fahari yako italishughulikia
janbo hild nak&Liwaarifrundugu wa jamaa huyo: kwa ajili ya msiba huo
ambao unowapata.

Inasenekana kwamba narehenu alitoka M1ombasa e.abako .-ndiko: aliko-
Iuwa anafanya kazi na ugonjvia. uliiawa nza hukohuko na alipojiona ana

.Taarifa ya -Soni

Ana. baaduh mintaarafu safari y;, j. ya Soni tarehe: 15/5/51,
nineitimizao Mara nilippfika Zunbe Onari aliniarifu kuwa Bwana
Isaaok, Hoza ana wageni leo, .ndio: Mabwrana Salehe Shauri,
Salehe Shemwea, na engine. :iii mwenyewe siktuima mtu, kvia kuwa
sikuweza kuona wa kufaa kwa upelelezi.

.2 (a) Tarehe 16/5/51 nalielezwa na Bwana Alli Marika kuwa Zumbe
Hamisi Mwanyoka wa Gare amepeleka watu watano .kwa Bwana Simbamwene,
Vuga, aliowakamata nyumbanai kwva Saleho Shauri (mwenyeji wao
alikwenda Lushoto), Watu hao watoka sehemu mbali ibali -.Mtae,
...bar mao, Mlalo na mmonja jina lake Kibindo (bin F-ulani) atoka
Bungu.

(b) Tena Zumbe Kimweri Kibanga amewakamata mabwana Salehe
Shauri, Joha Mtoi, na Salehe Shemwea. Lakini_ aliwaachia baada ya
kuwaonya kwamba wasikutana tena katika nchi yake. Akazidi kusema
kama Salehe Shauri aliposikia hayo maneno ya Zunbe Kimweri Kibanga,
akasema kuwa hataacha kamwe kutangaza na kulkuza chama chake.

3. Zumbe Omari akaniuliza kwa nini nwvenzetu Zumbe Hamisi anapewa
nafasi ya kupeleka watu kama hawa kvva Simbamwene? Nikamjibu kuwa,
kwa kuwa Bwana Sinbamwene nwenyewe anayo mipango fulani na Bwana
District, Commissioner, situmaini kuwa atasikia kesi ya watu hao
watano. Nikazidi kunweleza kuwa Zumbe yeyote anayo haki;.ya kuwa-
hukumu watu wanaokutana bila kuwaarifu Zunbe wao kuwa watakutana
watu hao mahala fulani saa fulani; kwa desturi za wenyeji, hao
waweza kufikishbwa kwa Simbamwene kwa njia ya Rufaa. Lakini kwa
watu kana hawa, vkwa kuwa wanataka kuntu.treza Mtawala vwa kweli, kesi
zao ni lazima zitazamwe kvwa sheria za Serkali Kuu. -Wajibu wa
Wazumbe kwa sasa ni kupeleka taarifa za mabo yao kwa Bwana District
Commissioner bila kuwakamata, isipokuwa wakijaribu kutumia nguvu
y0yooto, au kunyang'anya watu nali zao,

W:. akatakahubarua,

M.tunishi wako ntiifu.

SKukatazwa Mikutano ya Nje.

Nathtibutisha na idhini ya Serikali Kuu, .ya. kwamba amri
iliotolewa mwaka 1948 juu ya kukatazwa mnikutano, bado ina nguvu
kama zamani.

Anri hiyo.ni amri. ya kukataza Raia wasikutane katika jakutano
wowote isipokuwa k.va idhini na makubalio ya Utawala-,waWenyeji -
yanni Zunbe flkuu.wa nohi. Basi. hakina ruhusa: mkutano, wa aina
yoyote .aitwe bila ruhusa ya Zumbo..

Maana ya amri ni kuzuia wanachama wa-chana chochote kibaya
wanaotafuta kuharibu au kupunguza nguvu ya Utawala wasikutane .na
kuongdza Raia katika mambo nabaya ya njia za uharifu. Ni -juu yenu
Snmazumbe kuangalia.watu wenye nia njena varuhusiwe kukutana.,
Kwa mfano wanachama wa chaa. cha Kahawa, au tumbako hawana budi
Skuruhusiwa lkuktana.

Pia anri hizo zina nguvu juu ya mi-kutano ya nje au .ya waziwazi.
Hazina nguvu juu ya riikutano ya watu wachache wanaohudhuria;:.,
rikutano wa siri nyumbani kwva Fulani. MLird tu nina nguvu kushtaki
watu wanaokutana kwa siri kwa kusudi la kuharibu utawala. ..

Amri hizo zilitolewa na Utawala wa Wenyoji na. kwa hiyo Zumbe
Mikuu yeyote aia nguvu na mamlaka kusikia.mashtaka haya Barazani
kwake Lakini ijapo Zumbe myienyewe ana nguvu, ana nguvu kwa idhini
yangu tu. k.tekatazwa kabisa kuanzisha nmashtaka kabla idhini .yangu
haijapokelevja. Msikose 1kufuata amri hii. .

SManeno hayo yana maaaa kubiwa, na ni lazima .aiao wa Kitara.xna
Raia- wote waarifiwe na kueleWa. .. Kwa hii ni wajibu.ya kila Zumbe
kuangalia ya kuwa maneno yote yataletwa mbele ya Kitara na Raia na
kuthubutisha Ratika kitabu cha maneno ya Kitara ya kwamba amri hii
inefuatwa.

D.C. Pigott, aliposema katika uchaguzi waco Monbo. Aliposoea,
Serkali imechagua Idtawala wa Sanbaani panoja na Mzee Mlugu na
Wazee sita wa Baraza la Vuga. Kana Wasambaa nwataka hantaki ni
shauri lenu. Kwisha kusema hakuna: Msanbaa aliyeweza kusena.
Kaua unavyojua kwamba Wasanbaa ni watu wanofuata sana anri za
Serkali. Tena usisahau kwanba Wasanbaa ni watu walio na
kumbukumbu kwa miaka mingi.

Mapatano, umefauya bi'dii h-.ia..s:.~ii.a .watu kwa kutaka
mapatano. Lakini sisi tunasema hakuna Msambaa aliyegombana
nawe, ila wewe ndiwe unagombbana na Wasambaa. Kama Bwana D.C.
alipokwisha sema, nawe ulisinma kusema hutantendea mtu ubaya:
Jee wena gani uliotufanyla? .

UTAWAIA WA MAAKIDA: ...

Wasambaa wenaturaini kwamba wewe ni Akd:id.wa Serkali,
alkini hakuna M~aambaa anaweza kuanini. kwamba wewe ni .I Utarl'.wi
wa kweli, kama wewe ungekuwa mwenye haki ya Utawala usingekubali
kufuata moyo wako wa ukatili. Wasambaa mamia wameingia jela
pasipo na nakosa. Kamia Mzoe Jaha. ambae ni .mzee wa kuheshimika,
nawe uliweza kuntukana mbele ya watu, kusema .iit.akupig 'imbo
matakcori rnwako rbele ya..wanao na hutafanya .kitu.. Ingawa-Mzee
Jaha umemywita aje upatane nae, Wasambaa namia na naelfu wavnakataa
wanasenra haiwezekani kupatana nawe. :, ., : 1

WAZUNGU. .

Tangu Serikali ya Kiingeroza kufika T-l'-.lil:a;. 'hakUjatokea "
Mtawala ambae 'kawatesa Raia zake kama wowe. Lakini Wasambaa
kvamba wanafuate sana -.ari za Seri:kali wauetulJia kusikia nwisho
wako utakuwa wapi. Jee, sasa unataka kupatana na watu gani?









Hakuna.wa wKiakida aliyokaa- ., m apatano na watu, nawe 2&unbuka
kama ni Akida, mtakaa kwia muda,, na. m.da ukiisha Mtawala wa
Sambaani atakuja kashika kazi yake.

Maneno:

Wasambaa wanasqja kvwaba kwa mnkosa makubwa sana uliowatendea
hawatakutaka kufa na watoto walioko natumboni awa mana zao, Wazee
hata wanawake na vijana, katika Sambaani hakuna hata ntu r~oja
ambac aniakupenda.

SShekhe Sefu:

,Umemwita Shekhe Sefu kwanba awe kiongozi waco, lakini
Wasanbaa walipomwona anafuatana na Sulemani. Belwa, kila mtu'
alikwisha fahanzu.lcwamba ni nitego yako kwa hivi hutapata kitu.
Sisi tunatunaini kwarsba wewe ni Akida .wa Serikali, ni juu ya
Serikali kutufikiria, kana sisi Wasanbaa- ulikosa, Serikali
itawaadhibu Wasambaa miaka yote, lakini hakuna hata maoja ambae
atafuata napatano hayo.

Kuuza Nchi:
Sisi tunakumbuka kvanuba tunayo niuL.i nyingi kulikco Ii-tiila,.
kwanba kila mtawala katika nchi kama huamtaki unaweza kuondoa
kama Gare ukauza kwa Hamisi; Illalo ukauza kwa Hanisi; Mgwashi
ukauza Icwa Paulo; Mashewa ukauza kwva Adriano. Kwa hivi Wasambaa
wasema hawakubali kabisa naoni hayo unayotaka.' Ulisema kwa
kes-i ya Hasani Mdoe, kwamba Wasanbaa ntavwaondolea mali zao kwa
adabu zangu, Wasaubaa wanewatoza adhab~bhs* 500 na 400, na 200,
na 100, kwa kosa kidogo. WVasabaa wote wanajua jela bila ya
Makosa,

Tunasena sis'i. Waesarbaa vote hatukutaki.

his place. 123. '

Brief SuIJar

We Vuga citi-ens hliave the honour.-to approA6h y.o with the
following request:-

We are sorry to see that our traditional cu.ton has been
abandoned. We refused Chief Magogo as he was only entrusted to
hold the -chair until such time as Billar's chilidren- were -full grown.
Now that Billa'.s children are full. grwn, and since our refusal
of Shebuge Magogo, we wanted Billa's child to be the chief in
order to fulfil our traditional custom. This traditional oustomn
is being abandoned on the following p-.oixts:-

a) We are,surprised that Mputa Magogoo is the Ruler of Vuga,
S hving-no right to become one. .

b): We refused Shabuge together with all df his' children as they
had no right to become rulers.

c) We dislike Kirineri Magogo. in the real sense .of disliking because
he has interrupted all the Vuga traditional custom.

d) We are also surprised that whenKinJig George died his daughter
became Queen who is Queen Elizabeth, don!t,you seeh ,that you
have invested her in order to fulfil your iiules? VWhat of our
L. ..:.-..... customn of investing Billa's child? .

e) We beseech;you to. helix us in our request, and if no prompt
decision is-given, we'-shall keep.on a-l:ing.

f) Ok, how grieved are we men, women and children of Vuga.

God be with you on giving us this help. All the people in
Tanga Province will pray for you.








Anonymous letter in support~ of TII:t.t Bila, ,defeated candidate
'when K.I. lagogo was elected Chief. 124.


I attach a su narised translation of the, letter you sent me on
28th March.

.' ,:'I' : t no dc.:ubt originates from a follower of Mputa Bila, who had
only small support and 'was heavily defeated when Kinweri Mputa
Magogo, the present Chief, was elected .1948.

;:..':- The historical background to it all is a complicated one, but
Mputa Bila, as I think he realizes himself, has no possible clain
to the chieftainship

His name is however quoted by those trouble-orakers who are
ready to use .any means in attempting to disrupt .the Native
Authority.

Disgruntled individuals amongst' the Wasanbaa are very apt to
indulge in ananymous letters and I suggest that anonymous letters
of'this nature do not deserve to receive any attention.

Your No. 6/2/576 of 26th May, 1952.

David Mshunba

In June 1948 Sinbanwene Magogo Kinweri was elected Chief of
the Wasanbaa.

He was constitutionally elected and proclaimed Chief by a
clear majority.

At the time of theelection there was a minority who held
views similar to those held by David Mshunba*

Clearly, at an election it -is impossible to please
everybody, and at this particular election-David Mshunba was in
the minority, therefore his views were outweighed"by the majority.

I' consider all that happened prior to June 1948 is now
irrelevant.

The question .of the successor to the late Chief was thrashed
out before the election. At the election the question was put to
the vote, and Kinweri elected.



David Mshuiba is the Fountain, of Political priest as Rise
of A. Bila to the Throne. 129.

S .:. Bungu was -the first place to, have an official visit of the
'branch of the Union. I had decided to ask His Royal Highness
"Kiraweri Magogo the.Sultan :of Ushaabara.to. give few words to the
nebers of the branch, and he gladly did, Their conversation with
. m'-'. this nobleman, has however, placed the. atter in a new light. The
: resuitof it is. the great number of members of the, iBgu branch.
S.* The henbers have decided on dividing.the Union Menbers to be
grouped into two district corpanies,.,viz:-

: a) Faming (i) Maize and (ii) Paddy

b) Forest Produce (i) Saw-Mills and. (ii) Carpentry Shop.

4. I felt it.cy duty to- submit those cursory remarks to you,
because in .rlartion -to illiterates,, and particularly to people
.of'the Central:-Iaid- West Parts otf:Usoabara, much depends upon the

-..' -: Border Dispute between Usambara and Handeni Districts. 152.'


Tulistaajabu sana kupokea majibu ya madai.ya mipaka ya nchi
Syetu- kwa Sultani Vwa Vuga, 'ambae s8isit atu4.peleka: ombi wala
.1maombi ,.k-.k.,J:e. Haya 'yitatayo: ni' maneno- ya hotuba yake kwa baadhi








ya watu wa Korogwe tarehe 4*6.52.

1. Watu wengi wames6ma katika gazeti la Muli, nao wameona jinsi
ilivyoandikwa mipaka ya Uzigua na chi nyingine. .Lakini ripaka
S walivyoandika tambarare chini ya milima ya Usambara-wamekosa
kabisa, sababu tambarare hilo tangu zamani halimo katika nchi ya
Uzigua, la hasha. Tangu zamani nchi zote hizo chini ya m-ilima
ya Usambara zilikuwa chini ya Utawala wa Sultai wa Vuga. Hata
Wazee wa Kizigua walipeleka zawadi kwa Sultani wa Vuga kama Mtama
Mafagio na vitu kadha wa kadha.

2. Kuthibitisha habari hizo Bwana D.C. wa Handeni, ameandika
habari hizo za kukanusha kabisa kuwa tambarare hilo rni hohi zilizo
katika Utawala wa Vuga, hiivyo rntu -atakayenunua Muli la June
atayathibitisha maneno .-. kuwa ni ku j weli. kabisa isiyoweza
kukanushwa na mtun yoybte-- ..

3. Bwana Bakarij.I.tdoe tulif'an yia atashakahuko I ombQ, :.sababu
mashuri: yaZue .:aliyoyajia h-Ital diuy.rdiharmu, .na kwa>ku /wa hakujionyesha
kwetu kwa Zumbe Ikuu wala kwangu, tdlinshambulia npaka tukapata
hakika mambo yaliyomleta. Ultingia. nyuniba ya mtU usipopiga hodi
waweza kupigwa nkwaji, inga'va 'si rinkusudi ya mwenye nyumba,
lakini' mashauri yake tumeyatengeneza na sasa.yamekwisha.

4.. Wasambaa, Wabondei, na Waigua ni wvamoja, .danu ye. Wasambaa,
hasa niseme .damu yangu, ~ignliv.'.sz kupimwa na Daktari,t~ pasipo
shaka, ndani ya damu yangu'igeonekana 'damu ya Kizigua, hata
inkale wetu wote ni wamoja ndiye Senta.. Hivyo yatupas .Ltushirikiane
katika maendeleo-ya kulistawisha. nchi. yetu,,k va, kazi aa, ufundi,
i ''~ iashara,'killto :na :kujliga shule .na hospital, lakini Msambara
asijaribu kumnyang' anya Mzigua nohi. yake, wala..Mzigua asijaribu
kunnyang'anya ,,isambara ncohi yake, hapo tuitasimamisha kesi kubwa
sana, maana mimi sitakubali kabisa kunyang'anywa sehemu ya nohi
.. yangu kabisa; ... .

5. Sultani akaauliza-' yuko mwenye neho. la kuuliza?,. Watu wote
wakamanyaza: kimya ..Mzee Samabaka akayakariri tena maneno ya
Sultai-, na kusema mwenye shauri asemie. Mzee Hamisi: Salimu wa
S'MgoIbezi ,alisiam. akasema, "Sisi hatutna hoja yoyote, mipango
:. yo&~e .ya tawala. iuLck'f'ikniikono ya Serkali, sisi kazi yetu ni
S ki.toa' kodi tu. Hilo Muli linalQsemwa sisi engine hatulijui,
S li?.ia habri-. gani,.hatujui. Haja yianu mimi ni ikupata cheti change
cha: a Kilabu, .kama nikikosa hata Vuga nawe-a kufika, watu wakacheka".

Maneno haya hatukuyajibu, wala hatukuweza kukueleza kwa upesi
kwa sababu zifuatazo:-

(a)' Tli6ha aj:abu yeye kutuuliza na kutueleza mambo kama haya,
tena hapakuwa na Ivzungu awe shahidi wa yote tuatakayosema, yeye
peke yake .ndiye mshitaki na .mto6ti bjhukuu. Hivi tulitia.-shaka,
ssii h.atiujapel ka-neno lolote vkwake tukiijibt pasipoq mmj pja wa wale
Stuliowapelekea, a.mombi yet~in, ,pengine %tunaweaa kiuja 'uambiw
turentoloa jibu la r mattusi tena wenzetau wot wenye madai .hawakuwepo

(b) Tulitna aj abu sana, yeye .kuja ]t.ii .a i z 2ashauri haya, sisi
.. tanmgu tulipoz.a ai'l). ipela;]a,. y madai ya- raipaka yetu kwa Serikali,
a .Tu........ .d ,wan;a huyu, wala hatl u. uoib:-L'neno loiote, ila maombi
yetu yote tuliipelekea Serikali Kuu iliyompa yeye kututawala.
Ikiwa tunadai mipaka yetu, watu tuliopakana nao ni VWasambaa.
Hawa .Wakilindi ni wageni wa ukoo wa Mbega aliyesafiri. toka Kilindi
na kupitia nchi yetu ripr.:,:. kafika ihaur..i-. Hapa Maurwi alifanya
S" urafiki na'mnzoe Kinyang'a aliyemzaa lidongwe, na Mdongwe akawazaa
Yumusu na Salimu, ambaye ndiye Jumbe wa Mazurwi .wa sasa.

S91.


akaelenea pande za milimani, na huko ndiko .alikopatana na Wasambaa
S wakanmfanya ikuwa kiongozi wao. Tunastaajabu mtu kama huyu
kutusemeshaikatika mipango yh; laudai mipaka yetu. Hivi inaonyesha
wazi kuwa buyu: si-ilfalue wa sehemu hizi. ..ki",ia ap-luit: kuzishika
kapewa na nyinyi Wazungu, maana hata 0,saatLd huko Vuga wakati
'wanchaguap6.ontawala waof hawaarifiani na sisi. Na kama ikitakiwa
hadithi zaidi juu ya Mbega, tunaweza kukueleza zaidi.

(d) Sisi Wazigua hatuoni hadithi inayopoteza tambarare pamoja na
watu'wake, isipokuwa hadithi ni ile ya wema wa Mzee kinyang'a
kumpitisha Mbega- katika Mto Luvu. Ingefaa sana Bwana Sinbamwene
atoe shikurani kEia Wazigua walionpitisha Mbega, lalini mahali pa
kutoa shukurani- asor hiii.ni nchi yangu, hivi i haki? Watu
wastahilio kusepa na sisi juu ya Imipaka yetu ni Wasaxabara hao
ndio tuliopakana nao t.-"L-, zcraani lakini hawa wa Wakilindi ni
Wageni katika nchi hii. Kupotea kwa ncli tunategemea nambo
nawili a) Kupigwa vita-na kutekwa b) Nohi huvw.eza .kuziwa taifa
litgine. Jo, manbo kana hayo lipo mojawapo vwalilotendewa watu
wa tarbarare hili? Tena inethibitikla kvwa kweli kama katika mito hii
miwili Luvu na LMomaazi, na kisiwa kipi kiitwacho -kuwa hiki ni
kisiwa cha Wakilindi au Wasambara?

(e) Kwa mintaarafu ya kifungu cha pili cha maneno ya Sinbanwene
juu ya karatasi hii tunastaajabu kusikia kama Bwana D.C. wa Handeni
arLi.-dik:. kuwa nchi zilizo katika tambarare zimo katika Utawala
wa Vuga. Mpango huu wa kuziweka nchi za tambarare kuwa chini ya
bona la Lushoto, ulipangwa na ile Serikali ya Kigerumani yenye
dhuluma. Tena wakati huo halkukuwa na.Utawala wa Vuga. Haki ya
kuweka Utawala wa kienyeji,. inepangwa upya na Serikali yetu
tukufu ya Kiingereza.

(f) Tunaf'ahaa kwa kuasudi la Serikali hii. L ilipana kila "kabila
lijisinamie lenyewei chini ya.uongozi wa Serikali yea kuu. Sisi
Wazigua wa nchi za tambarare tulidhuluniwa. Tuliona kila pahali
wakiambiwa wachagua Zunbe Mkuu, lakini hatukuarifiwa kwanza kama
kulikuwa na uchaguai wa Sultani wa Vuga ntawala wenu, naneno haya
hatukuyajua kabisa. Ni dhulua kIubwa sana tuliyotendewa kutenga-
nishwa na jadugu zetu lakini hatukuhusiana nao kwJa manbo ya utawala
tangu zanani. Inekuaje basi Bwana imkubwa wa Handenij kuthibitisha
kuwa tangu zanani ac=ani nchi za tanbarare ni utwala wa Vuga, na
hali yeye Bwana D.C. ni mgeni?.

(g) 'Bwana nkubwa, hizo ndizo sababu zilizotusuia tusiweze kunjibu
bwana huyu. Juu ya naombi yetu tulitazajia kupata jibu litufaalo
kwa Serikali Kuu, ambako ndiko tulikopeleka maombi yetu. Na kama
Serikali imentuma Sultani wetu aje atuulize ara atueleza mambo
kana haya kIwa siri kana hivi, tunazidi kudhuluniwa. Savi tunataka
Serikali itujqusanye sisi wote wenye kidai, panoja na hao
tunaowadai, 'hapa Serikali itj:z:, ] u;ik-ili:.a maneno ya kila upande,
ikawe za Icutuamiua.

(h) Baraza hizi anazotufanyia ntawala wetU. kuuuliza na kutueleza
-nambo: kama haya,l pasipo ,usinamizi wa Mzung6a hattuzitaki, kwani
zaweza kuleta nanbo ya kukosana, na sisi hatukusudii kukosana
ila t-. r io:iba. Serikali !kuuttirJ-ia iliyQo h.ak yetu,


A society for Economic Development is better than a

Chama cha El.iccftit.on Board .(Jina lisilos.a'a na mawazo)

'Ahsaht'e sana .i barua yako .-'va maswali yake na naelezo yako
nayo nakujibu hivi- :- .. :


1) Mtu aliyebuni chana cha Usambara Union (T.U.) utapata








kunwona nitakapo tangaza Historia ya chana chote toka kuanzishwa.

.2) Kwa kawaida.kubuni kitu chochote ni rirba ya mtu imoja, na
wale wafuata'to i wale :li.o. .ntu.yule rwvnye ninba ya wazo lile
huwakata shauri juu ya ">,azo ill:u na baidaye wengi zaidi ni wale
watakaojiunga luigundua shabaha waliyoelez.wa kuwa born.

3) Katika haja yako ya chaua hicho sidhani kaIna ni haki kuunda
chaia cha rmajadiliano (Political), na ambacho shabaha yake ni
k upii-gana na chaa Kininne :cha Uasi kwahi charia kilichochafua
Uta.,l'.--L wa Usa ibara'haki .;stahili kuitwa chaoa ila kinafaa kuitwa
,"Usi" tu. Serikala yeiy wew inewekwa kuangalia uasi na mbnbo yote
,. yaondoayo anoni ya nchi.na kuyakomosha. Kwa hiiyQ kukormesha uasi wa
.*. hchi'ni kazi ya Serikali, au kana tutarahusu.kui~da chana
kama -hicho ni kuiruhusu nohl kifanya fujo.Na kama fujo. zitatokea
Skana hivyo, ni.njia moja wapo ya kusinanisha maendeleo tunayo-
.. tazaoia. Chaia, hiki- Ushambaa Union kinearniiiwa na Serikali kwa vile
kilivyo6. rihadhcri sana na kuingilia Serikali yoyote. Ila chama
,hiki kilijiweka .shauri wa Serikali kwa yote kilipoona labda
S' yataifaa Ushambaa yao, wala hakikujiweka kuishurutisha Serikali
Skufanya tendo lolote. Serikali ikiona yale mashauri yaliyotolewa
na chama ni mena, huyaingiza katika riipango yao na kufanya ni
yake si ya chana k.n. Vitara na Bawanjana vya Ushambaa.

4. IKatika jina la chana chake ni kana hili, "Education Board", na
tafsiri yake ni kusena "Baraza ya Kuangalia Elinu". Mawazo yake
haokika sio kuangalia elinu bali kuzuia uasi wa nchi, na shabaha
hiyo ya kuwapa raia madaraka ya kuzuia uasi, sina shaka hayawezi
kutolewa na Utawala wala Serikali Kuu. Na kila mara ukiandika
jabo 'angalia sana kichwa cha habari kipatane na nawazo utakayo-
yaandika ndani. Mini kwa upande. wangu sikikubali chama kana hicho,
ila nakushauri kuwa vyama viletavyo nanufaa ya nchi :hi kama vyama
vya Biashara vya Ufundi, na vya Kilino, sio kama hicho ulichobuni.
SKwa hiyo ni 'faida kwako na kwa kizazi kijadcho kana utawaunganisha
wenzio uwezao kishirikiana nao na kuunda chana kinoja wapo cha
mfano kama huo niliotaja hapo juu,

5. Ule uasi uusemao huletwa katika nchi hii na mambo makuu kana
haya.

1) Mtu apendae heshima.na hana naari'fa ya kustahili heshima
hiyo aitakayo huwadanganya watu walio na naarifa ya nchi
zaidi awpongoze na akidai kuwa awaongoza kwa wema, na akijua
Skuwa engine w'atanigundua huwafundisha kuichukia Serikali au
Utawala hi kutaja vita ajuavyo kuwa raiaa wna mu navy.
Na hapo watu wote awaongozao hawana budi kunpa heshina.
2) Watu engine hawataki kutumia.jasho 'yab kNa kujipatia
riziki, ila huwadanganya watu engine n:a kuwanyang'anya'fedha
zao na kuzila kwa njia za hila.
3) Watu walio wavivu wa miili yao wakiwa bure bila kazi
hutunga mambo kana hayo ya kuchochea" raia mambo ya uasi. Na
watu kama havwo sina shaka.iwakipatiwa kazi na kuitunikisha
niili yao, hawatatunga fitina za kukoroga nchi. Nami nakupa
kana mzigo wako kwa jirani zako uwaeleze faida ya kazi za
mikono yao zinavyoleta manufaa ya nchi kuliko kuwafundisha
kupingana lva naneno.

6. JjTSI YA KUBUNI CHATM'- Kwa shabaha hiyo ya chana chako,
ucewaza kwa haraka kuwa kosa pia katika sheria za kubuni vyama,
nalo kwalo liligundua kuwa hujafikia hatua ya kuweza kuwaongoza
watu katika misingi ya chama. Ukibuni chama fulani, usipendelee
kujifanya Mkuu wa Kiti .au sivyo hutaweza !..ipin'a makosa ya uongozi
huwo unaoutazamia. Kubuni na kuongoza chama kunahitaji maarifa
kutosha ya kuzaliwa, na elimu pia. Huenda unayo raarifa ya
.kuzaliwa, lakini elimu yako haijafikia hatuwa a kuwaongoza raia








wengi kamau-n .oto-. -- ',ronyewe, kwani kdti yao kuna wengi wenye
6elimu na busara zaidi yako. Kwarnia yako njema nakubali ukitaka
uwe nawanachana wa Ushambaa Union.

Wanakitara ni Serikali ndogo ya kusaidia kutawala nchi ya
Jumbe hufanya nipango ya kuifaa ncili na kunshauri Jumbe kama ni
bora akazitunia kwa jimbo lake. Na kila Serikali haitaona ni bora
kutawaliwa na chana, lakini sio kama hicho ulichosena, ila ni kama
vitara na Bawanjama. Au sivyo nchi ya nanna kama hi0yo ya kutawaliwa
Sna clina itakuwa chafu na isiyo na nguvu.

7. 7 limi ninayrekuandikia ni HIonh. Secretary wva chamia cha Ushambaa
Union (l.Iuin&ir-ihi l~ Iuu), na kwa' uponde wa utawala ni Waziri wa
Sultani wenu. Kwa hiyo nasema ponde-zote' mnbili kwa updnde wa
Serikali na kwa uongozi wa vyana pia. Mini nafahanu sana pia kuwa
wakati huu ni wa wakati ambao raia wengi wva Ushambaa wana sirika
Sya maendeleo, na .bila shaka vwaneingia noyo huo kwa ajili ya
.pande walizozipita wakati. wavita na katika maonyesho ya senema.
Na mini kwa vile nilivyo mshauri. wa Sultani wetu sina budi kuwa
na macho n kali yaonayo pande zote nbili, nema na mabaya. Na sina
budi kuangalia ushauri wangu usimpotbeze Sultani' abbapo.itakuwa
kuiharibu nchi nzina ya Usabbaa. Raia wengi Wasio na busara huko
vitani katika niji na nchi za kigeni hawakocudhagua ya kurudisha
makwao, huenda wanepfendelea yale mambo ya kihuni .na kuyafanya ni
ya Ustaarabu. Na kuamua nema na abaya ni juu ya sisi walezi wenu
ili isipatwe na balaa. Naomba unisanehe kwa kule kukukatisha
tanaa katika shabaha yako. Na kama thukufahanu'.vc i' nimnaw-za
kuuliza .zaidi, -haoa kwa wenye maarifa zaidi yangu.

Many yong men need encouragement front home in order to
participate actively in affairs of the "Chama". 136.


;-LL.Aj October, 1951, tuucunga chaa. cha Wasanbaa wote waishio
hlapa mjini ili shida zinazotupata tuiwezc kupata nsaada na nguvu
za kuimaliza nara moja.

Tuneweka ada za kuingia kwenye chana na ada za kila mwezi.
Tunazo sheria (By-laws) anbazo kwanba ndizo hasa zinazoweka chaua
hiki nazo nakili (copies) zake tunezipeleka kwa wakuu. wa Norther
Province (District Comissioner) wa hapa Arusha ili watukubalie
:kwa.kufungua chama chetu hiki. Nao wacekubalia kwanba ni wazo
Sjena. tunalolifanya.

Kwa kweli npaka sasas chama hiki hakina nguvu sana sababu
weako vijana wengi walio na vipingaviizi.vya kuwazuia engine ili
wasiingie kwenye chOiLa) lakini nambo yamnapotokea chana kinawasa-
idia, kusudi jina letu lisidharauliwe.

Kusudi letu tulilofikiria ukumandikieni ni kwamba sisi tunao-
fanya kazi huku ibali'na nchi yetu tu raia wenu na kwanba ingawa
tuko nbali hivi, ni wajibu wetu kIkuelezeni ninyi wakubwa wetu wa
U.N. Administration, ili mpate kut.uunmgankono katika shida yetu
hii ya vijana hawa wanaotaka jina loet lidharauliwe siku zote.

Katika nji huu viko vyana vya makabila mbalinbali kama
.Wachaga, Wapare, Wabondei, Wazigua etc., lakini vyana hivi vina
unoja kuliko chana chetu cha Washambaa.

Kana nilivyo Secretary wa chama hiki chetu, ninealikwa siku
moja katika Luntano wa chana cha Kilinanjaro Union ambacho kwanba
baada ya nazungunzo yote yaliyokuwapo, wanachama wauesomewa barua
inayotoka kwa Mangi wao Mkuu akihiniza chana chao kisirudi nyuna
na kutia aibu jina lao. Sisemi kuwa katika vyama hivi hakuna
wapinganizi kama walivyo katika chaema chetu. ILakini natumaini weng
