TAASISI YA LEGAL SERVUCES FACILITY YAENDESHA SEMINA KWA WABUNGE JIJINI DODOMA


Meneja Mradi wa  Legal Services Facility LSF,  Ramadhan Masele (kushoto), akizungumza na wajumbe wa Kamati ya Kudumu ya Bunge ya Katiba wakati wa kikao chakujadili namna watakavyoweza kushirikiana na serikali namna ya kuboresha na kurahisisha upatikanaji wa huduma na msaada wa kisheria kwa wananchi  hafla hiyo imefanyika jana  jijini Dodoma.
Meneja Mradi wa  Legal Services Facility LSF,  Ramadhan Masele, akizungumza wakati wa hafla hiyo.

Wabunge Tanzania wameombwa kuunga mkono kazi za wasaidizi wa kisheria na watoa huduma za msaada wa kisheria, ambao ni nguzo muhimu katika kuwasaidia mamilioni ya Watanzania kutoka katika vitendo vya kikatili, manyanyaso na udhalimu.
“Ni kweli kwamba wasaidizi wa kisheria na watoa huduma za msaada wa kisheria wengine wamekuwa msaada mkubwa kwa wananchi wanaoteswa na kunyayaswa, lakini hawawezi kazi hii kwa ufanisi bila kusaidiwa au kuungwa mkono na watu kama vile wabunge,” Ramadhani Masele, Meneja wa Programu wa Taasisi ya Msaada wa Kisheria (LSF) wakati wa ufunguzi wa semina ya mafunzo ya siku mbili kwa wabunge kuhusu wasaidizi wa kisheria na watoa huduma za kisheria nchini, uliofanyika Dodoma jana.
LSF ni shirika lisilokuwa la kiserikali lilioanzishwa Mwaka 2011, linalofadhiliwa na Shirika la Kimataifa  la Maendeleo la Denmark (DANIDA) na Idara ya Maendeleo ya Kimataifa ya Uingereza (DfID). LSF inatoa fedha kwa mashirika mbalimbali yanayotoa msaada wa kisheria na huduma za wasaidizi wa kisheria Tanzania Bara na Zanzibar.
Lengo kuu la semina ya wabunge, ni kuwawezesha wabunge kujua masuala mbalimbali, ikiwemo namna wasaidizi wa kisheria wanavyotoa huduma zao, idadi ya wilaya wanazofanya kazi, na aina ya kesi wanazozishughulikia, msaada wa kisheria na huduma za wasaidizi wa kisheria, kazi za LSF na ushiriki wake katika kutekeleza Malengo ya Maendeleo Endelevu (SDGs) 17 ya Umoja wa Mataifana
Semina hii ya mafunzo inakuja wakati kuna ongezeko la matukio ya uvunjaji wa haki za binadamu nchini, kama vile watu kuteswa, ukatili wa kijinsia, udhalilishaji wa kijinsia, kuwashambuliwa wanawake kwa kuwapiga, uporaji wa  ardhi na matukio mengine yanayofanana na hayo.
Kwa kupatia ufadhili kutoka LSF, wasaidizi wa kisheria na watoa msaada wa kisheria wameweza kuwasaidia wanawake, wanaume na wasichana maskini na makundi ya watu wengine wananyimwa haki zao, kupata huduma za kisheria kwa gharama nafuu au bila gharama yoyote na huduma bora za msaada wa kisheria na hivyo kupata haki zao, kwa mujibu wa meneja Mpango wa LSF.
“Lakini wasaidizi wa kisheria na watoa msaada wa kisheria wengine wangeweza kutoa huduma na kuwafikia watu wengi zaidi ambao haki zimeminywa au kuvunjwa kama wakiungwa mkono na wabunge,” aliongeza Masele, huku akisema kwamba  “wanawake na wanaume wanaoteswa, kudhalilishwa au kufanyiwa ukatili wa kijinsia, ambao haki zao za ardhi na mirathi zimevunjwa, wanaishi katika majimbo yanayoongozwa na wabunge wenyewe.”
Pamoja na mambo mengine, alisema semina ya mafunzo itawasaidia wabunge kufahamu masuala yanayohusu wasaidizi wa kisheria, jinsi wanavyofanya shughuli zao na jinsi gani wasaidizi wa kisheria wanavyoweza kushirikiana na wabunge kupanua wigo wa huduma za msaada wa kisheria.
“Lengo kuu kuwasaidia watanzania wengi wanaohitaji msaada wa kisheria na kupata haki zao zilizokiukwa. Ni muhimu kwa wabunge kuungana na wasaidizi wa kisheria kwa sababu wananchi wenye matatizo wanatoka katika majimbo yanayoongozwa na wabunge,” alisisitiza Masele.
Kwa mujibu wa maelezo ya LSF, semina hii itawawezesha wa bunge kufahamu huduma mbalimbali zitolewazo na wasaidizi wa kisheria, ambao kwa sasa wanafanya kazi katika wilaya 170 nchini, namna ya kuwasiliana nao, namna ya kupata huduma zao na kueneza taarifa za huduma zao majimboni kwao.
“Taarifa muhimu kama hizi zitarahisha kazi za wabunge na wasaidizi wa kisheria  katika kutatua matatizo/kero mbalimbali za wananchi katika majimbo yao—migogoro ya ardhi, ndoa na mimba za utotoni, mirathi, wanaume kutelekeza familia zao nk,” inasema sehemu ya taarifaya LSF.
Mada za kimkakati zilitolewa na wataalamu wa LSF kwenye semina iliyohudhuriwa na wabunge kutoka Kamati ya Kudumuya Bunge ya Katiba na Sheria na Kamati ya Kudumu ya Bunge ya Huduma za Jamii na Maendeleo ya Jamii.

FROM DESPAIR TO TRIUMPH: A WIDOW’S JOURNEY TO HER RIGHTFUL INHERITANCE

Msegena displays the judgement on an inheritance case she had won and recovered her house and other properties left by her deceased husband. Geita paralegals helped her claim her inheritance rights.


Under the Constitution of Tanzania every person is entitled to owning property, a right extended equally to both men and women and governed by the provisions of the Land Act and the Village Land Act. One would therefore rightly assume that this is a straight-forward, clear-cut situation; well, not quite. Incidents of widows losing their inheritance rights after the demise of a husband remain a serious problem in many societies across the country.

In the north-western region of Geita, Ms. Msegena Jeremia lost her husband in 2015 leaving her with the sole responsibility to bring up six children. while still overwhelmed by the pain of losing her husband, members of her clan convened an inheritance distribution meeting, a gathering that would ultimately and without her consent impose the destiny of any valuable assets.

Customarily, the eldest male child is placed in charge of any assets left behind by a deceased father and in Msegena’s case Joshua, a stepson and the eldest of the six children became the overseer of the assets which included a house, money deposited in a bank account and a motorcycle. Joshua was instructed to immediately withdraw TShs.1.9 million from the bank account and after opening an account for each of his siblings deposit an agreed amount into each account. The house and motorcycle would be sold.

This was to be the beginning of what seemed like a series of problems for Msegena. To her utter surprise, Joshua deposited all the money in his bank account and when she confronted him about this breach she said he attacked her physically and threatened to chop her hands off. With relations between the two of them deteriorating her husband’s relatives came together and began forcing her out of her matrimonial home.

“Joshua went so far as to lock me out of the house forcing me to spend two nights outside with no regard for my safety whatsoever. On the third day I couldn’t take it anymore so I went into town to seek any help I could get,” said Msegena with tears welling in her eyes.

In town she knocked on every door she believed would open for her to lay down her tons of burdens – from local community leaders to the police and finally the court. One of her attempts at seeking relief through the court and reclaim the inheritance hit a dead end when Joshua, now loaded with cash, bribed the magistrate who went on to rule in his favor.

Not every member of her late husband’s family wasn’t touched by what she was going through and at this point her sister-in-law, Safi, who apparently knew of a Geita-based paralegal, Bernard Mosira decide to help Msegane by introducing her to Bernard for further assistance. The rescue came to Msegena through Bernard Mosira who took up the case and immediately established communication with her.

“I called Bernard and explained my problem. He advised me to return home and promised me that he would remain in touch with me and that he will pursue my case”, she said.

Upon setting foot home however, the village chairman convened a traditional meeting traditionally known as “Nzengo” to isolate and force her out of the village on the fabricated claim that she engaged in untoward practices and was hence unfit to be part of the village.

On hearing the startling news Bernard travelled to the village the next day and approached the local leaders to at least help Msegena to start settling down again and get on the path to being in full control of her life, while also pointing the leaders to the consequences of their actions.

Seeing an open call to empower Msegena, Bernard used this experience to educate her on relevant provisions of the law, her rights and her responsibilities.

Armed with a new understanding and ripe confidence, she reported the maltreatment Joshua put her through to the local police station and within days he was apprehended and appeared before the primary court.  The court ruled in her favour ordering the clan members and her late husband’s relatives to desist from selling the house as intended, and effectively declared her its legal owner and of the motorcycle.

“During the hearing, I spoke like someone who knew the law, and people, particularly the magistrate and police, were surprised and wondered where I got such knowledge. I surely didn’t look convincing to anyone” stated Msegana.

“we are delighted to know the importance of observing laws and we have gone as far as inviting Bernard and his team and they have come up here twice now to provide legal education during our regular village meetings”, added the elder.

Msegena’s story paints a vivid picture of how effective legal education can be, often drawing two sides that were once polarized closer and closer and ultimately helping them find common ground under the canopy of the law. It makes a strong case for the sensitization of women’s rights and also the banishing of unjust customs and traditions.

Msegena, now a legally-empowered and free woman leads an improved life raising poultry and growing crops on land spreading out at the back of her house. The motorbike she once had no hope of ever seeing again now ferries people between nearby villages earning her extra income and allowing her to provide for her family.
