‘Millionaire’ whose dream ended at Vodacom

‘Millionaire’ whose dream ended at Vodacom

Dar es Salaam. In what appears to mirror the biblical David and Goliath clash, a Dar es Salaam resident is readying to sue Vodacom Tanzania over an SMS that would have made him a millionaire overnight.

Mr Daniel Njau, 47, is accusing the telecommunication giant of taking him and his family for a ride over the recently concluded “Jay Millionaire” lottery promotion.

He says he participated in the promotion that Vodacom ran for several months and struck the jackpot. He reportedly won Sh100 million, the highest prize.

“It was one of the happiest days of our lives as a family,” he says. “It was in January when, through a Vodacom SMS, the number of my son Innocent was announced the day’s winner of the Sh100 million.”

The younger Njau is a student in Moshi and had left the telephone number to his father as he went to school. “The number was enrolled in the Jay Millionaire promotion and I continued to play, receiving the daily short messages as the days progressed,” the senior Njau explains.

As he went about his daily routine, Mr Njau received the SMS that would have turned the Njau family’s lives around. The younger Njau’s number had won the promotion of the day’s top prize of Sh100 million.

He told The Citizen in an interview: “My heart skipped as I read the message. I could not believe our luck. I slept over the news, not having the guts to tell anyone. I decided to wait for a call from Vodacom, as promised, before breaking the news to other members of the family.”

The call did not come within the 48 hours Vodacom had reportedly said. As the clock ticked without any communication, Mr Njau became apprehensive. “Anxiety grew with each passing day and all I could do was hope the call that would make me a millionaire was a few seconds away.

That SMS remained permanently on display,” he said of the message that read: “Hongera! Wewe ni mshindi wa leo was TZS MILIONI 100. Utapigiwa simu na wafanyakazi wa Vodacom kwa maelezo zaidi ndani ya masaa 48.”

The message announces that the subscriber’s number was the winner of Sh100 million for a particular day’s draw. It says the lottery winner would be contacted by Vodacom employees within 48 hours. But that all-important call did not come and Mr Njau, a Dar es Salaam-based businessman, took it upon himself to visit Vodacom offices and those of the Betting Control Board to find out what was happening.

It has been five months of criss-crossing between the company and the board, according to Mr Njau. Vodacom now says that message was wrongly sent to his son’s registered number and reportedly appears reluctant to pay up. But Mr Njau is staying on the case. “I am shocked and disappointed but I have not given up on the matter,” he says. “We have decided to pursue justice in court and have already instructed our lawyer to file a case against Vodacom and the Betting Board.”

He has written several letters to the Board and details numerous meetings between himself, the board and Vodacom to no avail. The older Njau is acting on behalf of his son through the power of attorney.

“The promotion promised millionaires every day for the months that it ran. My experience now suggests there may have been no such millionaires and all they did was collect millions from those enrolled but created no such promised millionaires,” Mr Njau claims. “I want to fight not just for the family but millions of Vodacom subscribers who may have been taken for a ride in the promotion.”

He reportedly rejected an undisclosed payout by the mobile company “as a token for the SMS they now claim was a mistake”.

But Mr Njau argues that the lottery results were supposed to be computer-generated and he wants to know how it was that the message was sent to his son’s number erroneously. “After showing them the text message, they told me that it was true that it was from Vodacom, but was mistakenly sent by the system,” he recalls. “I was surprised by their response since they normally say that one winner of Sh100 million daily would be selected daily, and I was the one for the day.”

Mr Njau has stuck to his guns, rejecting an offer of “disturbance” pay as suggested by the betting board and Vodacom officials. He adds: “The trend has now turned into intimidation. The company officials have told me I will lose everything if I do not accept their offer. They have even claimed my son’s mobile number was not registered and, even more surprisingly, that it cannot be detected in their system.” Mr Njau has submitted his complaints in writing to the Gaming Board of Tanzania (GBT). In a letter dated 23 April, the GBT wrote that it encountered several issues in the case, among them his participation in the disputed lottery draw. The Board says that, according to Vodacom, he was not a legitimate subscriber and had never taken part in a lottery draw. And records show that there was no winner of Sh100 million on that day, according to the board reply.

Meanwhile, Vodacom admits to have communicated through SMS to the telephone number that is registered in the name of Innocent Njau. But, according to the Board, the company had clarified that the text message sent to Mr Innocent Njau was erroneously generated by the lottery system used in determining the winning numbers.

GBT Director General Tarimba Abbas said Daniel was not the rightful holder of the telephone number that received the text message and the person legally entitled to follow up f the matter is Innocent. Mr Abbas says in the letter, which Mr Njau describes as shocking, coming from an institution that is supposed to represent the interests of the public: “Even if you come to us with SMS that you won, we usually go back to the draw of that particular day and confirm it. We found that Innocent’s telephone number did not win Sh100 million.” Vodacom Tanzania’s Head of Brand and Communication, Mr Kelvin Twissa, defends the promotion.

Ilikuwa mara ya kwanza kwa mimi kupigiwa simu na Jane mchana kama kama ule huku akionyesha kufurahi kuliko kawaida yake.

Baada ya kuniambia aliko nikaenda haraka na nilipofika pale nikaonana naye akiwa na rafiki yake ambaye alinitambulisha kuwa ni nesi wa hospitali moja binafsi.

Wakati nikijiandaa kukaa akanirushia mkononi kikaratasi chenye majibu ya daktari na kuonyesha ana mimba ya wiki sita.

Kwa furaha nilimrukia na kumbusu na kisha kuomba mhudumu aniletee whisky niweze meza fundo kadhaa kwa kuashiria kufurahia habari zile.

Ni kweli mimi na jane tulioana miaka minne iliyopita pamoja na baadhi ya ndugu zangu kunikanya niachane nae ila mimi nikabaki na msimamo na kukaa naye.

Na kwa miaka miwili nilikuwa sina mahusiano mazuri na dada zangu, mama yangu na baadhi ya ndugu wakidai kuwa nitaendeleaje kuishi na mtu asiyezaa.

Tuachane na hayo ila kwa habari niliyoipokea siku hiyo nikaona kuna kila dalili za furaha hasa ukivuta picha ya kuanza kuitwa baba......we acha tu.

Nilifurahia sana nyakati zile pamoja na kuanza kuexperience mambo mapya kama vile jane kuanza kudeka, kuchagua vyakula, mara kila wakati niwepo jirani naye na wivu kuzidi mpaka nikakoma ila kwangu ikikuwa burudani.

Baada ya miezi mitatu akaomba aende kwa rafiki yake yule nesi kwa kuwa alihamishiwa kijijini ili akajingojelee.

Nilikataa kabisa ila wakasisitiza kwa pamoja yeye na rafiki yake wakidai kwa kuwa ni mimba ya kwanza hivyo aende akapate msaada wa karibu kwa kuwa huyo ni nesi mtaalamu wa masuala wanawake wajawazito.

Sio mimi tu niliyeugomea uamuzi wa jane kwenda kijijini kule bali hata wazazi wangu na wake walikuwa wakigomea uamuzi huo ila yeye akasimamia uamuzi wake jambo lililotufanya tuafikiane nae ingawa kwa shingo upande.

Akaenda na kuanza kukaa huko nami nikawa kila mwisho wa wiki nikienda na kushuhudia tumbo likianza kuwa kubwa jambo lililonipa faraja na kujiona mbarikiwa.

Jambo la ajabu ni kwamba sikupewa nafasi ya kulala na mke wangu akidai ni ushauri wa nesi kitu kilicho nishangaza ingawa ikanibidi nivumilie.

Lakini siku zilivyozidi kwenda kila nikijitahidi kuvumilia nikashindwa kwani nami nilitamani kushika tumbo na kuona mapigo ya mwanangu wa pekee na hata kuongea nae kwa hisia kama kina baba wengine hasa ndugu zangu na marafiki pindi wake zao walipokuwa wajawazito jinsi walivyofurahia.

Nikaamua kumshirikisha rafiki yangu suala hili nae akadai labda kuna jambo nichunguze vyema... Hivyo nimchukue jane na kumpeleka kwa daktari mwingine ili nijue kuna nini?

Jane alikataa katakata akidai au simwamini na kama simpendi nimwambie maana naanza kufanya mambo ya ajabu na ya kumdhalilisha.

Hali ile ikanitia hofu zaidi na kuamua kwenda kwa dada yangu wa tumbo moja tuliyependana sana na kuaminiana kwa kila jambo.

Baada ya kumshirikisha akaniambia hapo kuna jambo basi akaniomba jumamosi yake nimsindikize mpaka kule aliko jane ili nae amwone.

Dada alifika pale na jane akaonyesha hali ya hofu na dada akamwambia wewe usinidanganye kwa utu uzima wangu huu wewe huna mimba....

Nikawa najaribu kumkataza dada asiongee maneno hayo kwani kwa mama mjamzito ni mabaya yanaweza kumfanya awe na mawazo au hasira na kuhatarisha afya na mtoto aliye tumboni.

Dada akanyanyuka na kwenda kumshika tumbo wakati huo yule rafiki wa jane akawa anatetemeka na kuonyesha hana amani jambo lililonipa nguvu ya kusimama na kwenda kumchunguza jane kwa makini.

Amini usiamini kumbe muda wote huo jane kafunga vitambaa tumboni ili tujue ana mimba kumbe sio.

Nikamchukua na kumpeleka kwa daktari na kufika pale kwa bahati nzuri ni daktari ninayemfahamu nilipomwomba atupime kama tuna uwezo wa kuzaa akanivuta na kusema mbona last time shem jane amekuja nilimpima na kusema kwa sasa hawezi kupata mtoto? Kwani hakukuambia?

Kumbe jane alishatoa sana mimba enzi za ujana wake na kuharibu kizazi.

Nikajiuliza sasa jane mwisho wa maigizo yale angeniletea mtoto toka wapi??????

Tumeachana nae ila nashindwa hata kuwa na nguvu ya kumwamini mwanamke yoyote tena hapa duniani.

NATAMANI NINGESIKILIZA MANENO YA MAMA YANGU

AIDS and HIV Symptoms and Signs

Published on by Tabasamu na Ommy

AIDS and HIV Symptoms and Signs

The symptoms of HIV and AIDS vary, depending on the phase of infection.

Primary infection

The majority of people infected by HIV develop a flu-like illness within a month or two after the virus enters the body. This illness, known as primary or acute HIV infection, may last for a few weeks. Possible signs and symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Rash
  • Chills
  • Sore throat
  • Mouth or genital ulcers
  • Swollen lymph glands, mainly on the neck
  • Joint pain
  • Night sweats
  • Diarrhea

Although the symptoms of primary HIV infection may be mild enough to go unnoticed, the amount of virus in the bloodstream (viral load) is particularly high at this time. As a result, HIV infection spreads more efficiently during primary infection than during the next stage of infection.

Clinical latent infection

In some people, persistent swelling of lymph nodes occurs during clinical latent HIV. Otherwise, there are no specific signs and symptoms. HIV remains in the body, however, and in infected white blood cells.

Clinical latent infection typically lasts eight to 10 years. A few people stay in this stage even longer, but others progress to more severe disease much sooner.

Early symptomatic HIV infection

As the virus continues to multiply and destroy immune cells, you may develop mild infections or chronic signs and symptoms such as:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Swollen lymph nodes — often one of the first signs of HIV infection
  • Diarrhea
  • Weight loss
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
Progression to AIDS

If you receive no treatment for your HIV infection, the disease typically progresses to AIDS in about 10 years. By the time AIDS develops, your immune system has been severely damaged, making you susceptible to opportunistic infections — diseases that wouldn't trouble a person with a healthy immune system.

The signs and symptoms of some of these infections may include:

  • Soaking night sweats
  • Shaking chills or fever higher than 100 F (38 C) for several weeks
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Persistent white spots or unusual lesions on your tongue or in your mouth
  • Headaches
  • Persistent, unexplained fatigue
  • Blurred and distorted vision
  • Weight loss
  • Skin rashes or bumps
When to see a doctor

If you think you may have been infected with HIV or are at risk of contracting the virus, see a health care provider as soon as possible.

MAAMBUKIZI YA NJIA YA MKOJO U.T.I

Published on by Tabasamu na Ommy

MAAMBUKIZI YA NJIA YA MKOJO (URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS -UTIs)


Neno U.T.I si geni masikioni mwa wengi, kwani ni wengi leo utawasikia “naumwa U.T.I”. Japo si wote hulitumia kisahihi. Wengine wana tatizo ambalo ni tofauti na U.T.I, lakini anaweza akaenda hata duka la dawa na kuomba apatiwe dawa za U.T.I. Leo nimeona tubadilishane elimu juu ya hili tatizo, angalau kila mmoja awe na uelewa U.T.I ni nini hasa, inasababisha na nini, na ni jinsi gani anaweza kujikinga.
U.T.Is, ni kifupisho cha Urinary Tract Infections, ambayo kwa lugha yetu ni maambukizi ya njia ya mkojo. Kama linavyojieleza, kwamba maambukizi ni lazima yawe ni kwenye njia ya mkojo ndipo tunaita ni U.T.I, na si pengine popote. Una uchafu unatoka ukeni, hiyo ni kitu kingine tofauti nk. Tunapozungumzia njia ya mkojo, ni kutoka eneo la nje hadi kwenye kibofu, na kutoka kwenye kibofu hadi kwenye figo.
Kama maambukizi yako eneo la kutoka kwenye kibofu hadi kwenye figo(ikihusisha na figo pia), inaitwa Lower Urinary Tract Infect. Na ikihusisha eneo la juu ya kibofu, inaitwa Upper Urinary Tract Infection.
Tatizo hili huwapata wote, wanaume na wanawake. Lakini huwapata zaidi wanawake kutokana na tofauti za kimaumbile. Hii ni kwa sababu kuu mbili, i)njia ya haja ndogo ya mwanamke iko jirani zaidi na njia ya haja kubwa ambapo vijidudu vingi visababishao U.T.I ndipo vinapoishi, ii) mrija wa mkojo (urethra) wa mwanamke ni mfupi ukilinganisha na wa mwanaume, hivyo kufanya iwe rahisi kwa maambukizi kufika kwenye kibofu kwa mwanamke kuliko kwa mwanaume.
Visababishi
Tatizo hili husababishwa kwa kiasi kikubwa na bacteria ambao makazi yao ya kawaida utumbo mpana, na hivyo huwa wanapatikana pia kwenye haja kubwa, mfano Escherichia coli na wengineo. Pia, linaweza likasababisha na ‘fungus’ na visababishi vingine, japo ni mara chache sana.

Vihatarishi na Njia ya Maambukizi
a)Kwa wanawake
• Kujamiiana –hii huweza kuamisha bacteria walio kwenye uume moja kwa moja, ama watokanao na maambukizi ya ukeni kuingia moja kwa moja njia ya mkojo
• Kuchezea ama kuchezewa na mikono michafu maeneo ya uke kunaweza kusababisha maambukizi
• Njia mbaya ya kujisafisha baada ya haja kubwa au ndogo inaweza kuhamisha bacteria walio ktk njia ya haja kubwa na kuingia njia ya mkojo
• Matumizi ya pedi za kike zenye kemikali ya kukata harufu ambao huua bacteria wa asili wa eneo la uke na kukaribisha bacteria wanaosababisha maradhi kuzaliana kwa wingi
Vifuatavyo pia vinaweza vikachangia
• Ujauzito –mara nyingi hushusha kinga ya mwili ya mjamzito
• Upungufu wa homon ya ya kike Oestrogen husababisha bacteria wasababishao U.T.I kuzaliana kirahisi

b)Kwa wanaume
• Matatizo ya tezi ya kiume(prostate) mabapo husababisha mrija wa mkojo kuziba, ama kutopitisha mkojo vizuri na kuruhusu bacteria kujenga makazi
• Kutotahiriwa, ambapo nyama ya mbele inaweza kuhifadhi bacteria wasababishao U.T.I
• Kujamiiana kinyume cha maumbile huingiza kirahisi bacteria walio njia ya haja kubwa kwenye njia ya mkojo
• Kujamiiana bila kinga na mwanamke ambaye ana maambukizi ukeni
• Kuwa na VVU ambapo hupunguza uwezo wa mwili kupambana na maambukizi

c)Kwa wote
• Kutokunywa maji na vinyaji kwa wingi –kunywa maji mengi husababisha mkojo kuzalishwa kwa wingi, na kukojoa mara kwa mara na hivyo kusafisha njia ya mkojo
• Kuwekewa mirija inayosaidia kutoa mkojo nje inaweza pia kukaribisha maambukizi
• Matatizo ya figo na mengine kwenye njia ya mkojo yanayoweza kuziba njia ya mkojo
• Kisukari ambapo hudhoosha kinga ya mwili na pia kuharibu mfumo wa figo wa uchujaji

Dalili za U.T.I
a) Kwa eneo la chini la njia ya mkojo
i. Hali ya kujisikia kutaka kukojoa muda wote
ii. Maumivu, au hali ya kujisikia kuchoma choma wakati wa kukojoa
iii. Kukojoa mara kwa mara na mara zote mkojo ni mdogo
iv. Mkojo unaweza kuonekana una ukungu, na mara nyingine unatoa harufu kali
v. Maumivu ya nyonga kwa wanawake
vi. Maumivu ya rektamu(rectum) kwa wanaume
vii. Na mara nyingine damu kwenye mkojo

b) Kwa eneo la juu la njia ya mkojo
i. Maumivu ya tumbo(hasa eneo la juu kwa pembeni –chini ya mbavu)
ii. Homa kali
iii. Kutetemeka na kujihisi baridi
iv. Kichefuchefu na /au kutapika

Vipimo na matibabu
Mara nyingi kipimo cha mkojo kinaweza kuonyesha tatizo.
Matibabu ni antibiotic baada ya daktari kubaini tatizo

Madhala yatokanayo na U.T.I isipopata tiba sahihi
• Inaweza ikasababisha maambukizi makubwa ya figo(pyenephritis) ambayo yanaweza kusababisha uharibifu wa kudumu wa figo na hivyo kutishia maisha
• Kwa wajawazito inaweza kuhatarisha maisha ya wote mama, na motto aliye tumboni
• Bakteria wanaweza kuingia mfumo wa damu na kusababisha ama kwenda kusababisha madhala mengine
• Inaweza kusababisha shinikizo la damu kuwa kubwa kwenye figo na hata kusababisha ufanyaji wa kazi mbovu wa figo

Tiba mbadala nyumbani kabla ya kumwona daktari
Unaweza kutibu, ama kupunguza tatizo nyumbani kabla ya kumwona daktari pale uonapo dalili ya awali ya U.T.I, ambayo ni maumivu na kuchomachoma wakaji wa kukojoa. Fanya yafuatayo
i. Kunywa maji mengi hasa saa 24 za kwanza baada ya kuona dalili. Hii itasaidia kuzalisha mkojo kwa wingi na kusafisha njia ya mkojo
ii. Kojoa mara kwa mara na hakikisha ni hadi mkojo unaisha ili kibofu kiwe tupu
iii. Kwa maumivu ya mlango wa mkojo, oga na kuosha kwa maji ya moto, kutapunguza maumivu

Njia za Kujikinga na U.T.I
Kunywa maji na vinywaji kwa wingi kila siku. Hii itakusaidia ukojoe mara kwa mara na kutoruhusu bacteria kujenga makazi kwenye njia ya mkojo
Kojoa kila ujisikiapo mkojo na usiubane kwa muda mrefu

Kwa wanawake
Nenda ukakojoe mara tu umalizapo tendo la kujamiiana. Hii itasaidia kutoruhusu bacteria kuingia na kujenga makazi kwenye njia ya mkojo.
Badili pedi mara kwa mara uwapo hedhini
Epuka kujisafisha ukeni na maji yarukayo kwa kasi, pia epuka kupilizia marashi ukeni, ama kutumia pedi zenye kemikali ya kukata harufu. Hizo huua bacteria wa asili wa ukeni hali ambayo hukaribisha bacteria wa maradhi kuzaliana kwa wingi
Ujisafishapo baada ya kujisaidia anzia mbele kwenda nyuma kuepusha kuhamisha bacteria walio eneo la haja kubwa kuingia njia ya mkojo
Kwa wale walio katika kipindi cha ukomo wa hedhi, wanaweza kushauliana na daktari juu ya kutumia oestrogen ya ukeni kuwasaidia kujikinga na maambukizi

Kwa wanaume
Kuhakikisha maeneo ya ncha ya uume ni masafi mara zote, hasa ikiwa hujatahiriwa kuepusha kujihifadhi na kuzaliana kwa vijidudu visababishao maradhi.
Kondom wakati wa kujamiiana nayo ni kinga nzuri

Asanteni kwa kutenga muda wenu kupata elimu hii.
