                     Dear Tanzanet Members,

                     I hope you are all in fine health and proceeding well with your daily
                     activities.
                     On March 22, 2000 a new Tanzanet leadership was announced to take charge of
                     Tanzanet affairs for one year. The leadership team comprised of the following
                     members:

                     1. Chairperson                  - Hassan O. Ali
                     2. Vice Chairperson               - Aziz P. Mlima
                     3. Secretary                 - Christopher Chacha
                     4. Assistant Secretary            - George Rugaimukamu Kakoti
                     5. Treasurer                  - George Ambwene
                     6. Assistant Treasurer             - Fabian Mashauri
                     7. Chairperson, Administration Committee - Saidi Kapiga
                     8. Chairperson, Networking, R&D           - Aleck Che-Mponda, Jr
It's just about a month before the end of the term of office of those
leaders.

Our term of office was characterized by a lot of turbulence, which
started right from the outset. It was however encouraging to see that always
principles of freedom of expression prevailed in this forum and majority of the
members stood firm to oppose any tendencies towards suppressing that freedom.

When we assumed our leadership positions, I believe we all had good
intentions. Soon after we were elected into office, we proposed to
pursue the following activities:

=====================
1. Kutafuta mbinu za kuongeza ushiriki wa wajumbe wa Tanzanet
  kwenye mijadala ili ukumbi wa Tanzanet uwe na msisimko zaidi na
  kuweza kujadili kwa kina mambo ya manufaa kwa wajumbe wa Tanzanet        na
kwa Tanzania kwa ujumla.

2. Kuanzishwa kwa jarida la Tanzanet.

3. Kupata mitambo mipya iliyo madhubuti na ya bei nafuu kwa ajili ya
  kuratibia "mailing list" na "web site" ya Tanzanet.

4. Kuongeza idadi ya wanachama wa Tanzanet hadi kufikia
  500 ifikapo mwisho wa kipindi cha uongozi cha mwaka 2000/2001.

5. Kuboresha huduma za wanachama kama ifuatavyo:

 - kutoa huduma ya kujiunga, kujiondoa kwa njia ya web.
 - kukata gharama za huduma ya habari kwa 50% bila ya
   kupunguza ubora wa huduma hiyo.
 - kuanzisha huduma ya kumbukumbu ya barua kwenye web

6. Kuifanya Tanzanet ijitegemee kwa mambo yake yote ya msingi
  (malipo ya ISP) na mengine ya kimaendeleo ifikapo mwisho wa kipindi
  cha uongozi cha mwaka 2000/2001.

7. Kuanzishwa kwa jumuiya isiyo ya kiserikali (NGO) ya Tanzanet.

8. Kufunguliwa kwa akaunti ya benki kwa jina la Tanzanet na
  kwa ajili ya shughuli za Tanzanet.
===================

I regret to say that circumstances did not allow us to accomplish much
of what we intended to do. Rather than being apologetic about it, I'd
like to suggest to the new leadership to carry on the work we had
started and
certainly we will be willing to offer our advice whenever needed.

On behalf of the outgoing Tanzanet leadership, I wish to express our
sincere thanks for the support you offered us over the entire period of our
leadership. We were greatly moved by your patience whenever our "ship"
was rocked hard by huge waves. Maybe you were a little too patient as no one
really complained on our performance which was certainly far less than what
the team could achieve.

Best regard to all.

Idumu Tanzanet.

                     Another contribution:
                     Nominators should ask their nominees first before putting the names forward.
                      Once a person takes up leadership, voluntary though it is, they
                     should take up the responsibility of serving the full term. In case of failure due to
                     unseen circumstances, they should be able to co-opt someone else to take their
                     post.
                      Members to be nominated for only one post.

Dr Aziz,            Agenda for discussion:
24.02.2001          1) Number of members in the Editorial Sub-committee to be increased between
                    6-15. To allow quality improvement in the Association Journal, not like the way
                    it is now which restrict only between 4 to 6.
                     (2) I would like to add a clause in the Tanzanet Constitution which will empower
                     the Journal Editor to make some appointment up to 5 five Associate Editors to
                     cover the gap in reviewing process based on the requirement from time to time
                     of course in consultation with the Advisory Board of the Journal which is the
                     Executive Committee.

                     (3) The possibility to allow a Journal Special Issue and a Guest editors from time
                     to time to pave way in dissemination of research results of Importance to
                     Tanzania and probably Sub-Saharan Africa.

                     (4) The Term for the Journal Editor should be minimum of One (1) Year and
                     Maximum of Three (3) based on Performance and quality of the Journal, And
                     should not be an Elected office, but by appointment based on Merit and
                     qualification of the editor.

                     Nitashirikiana na kamati kuu katika kuhakikisha kuwa tunaboresha huduma za
                     Tanzanet na kuanzisha ”e-Community” Kama ilivyopendekezwa katika
                     Manifesto ya Ndugu Richard Madete.

                    ya Tanzanet, kifedha, na Tanzania kijamii.-Suala hili litafuatana na Uanzilishi
                    wa ”Expertatrietes-DataBase” ambao watafanya kazi kwa pamoja kutegemea
                    maeneo yao ya kitaaluma kwa muundo ambao unaendana na maadili ya
