THE STATUS OF TLS ELECTIONS FOLLOWING THE AMENDMENT OF THE TLS ACT IN JANUARY 2020

Dear Esteemed Learned Brothers and Sisters,

I have the greatest honor to write to you, on behalf of your Governing Council, giving you an update on the state of the TLS, in particular, the election of its leadership, a task that is supposed to be carried out annually between March and April every year. Unfortunately, this year, we have not been able to hold the election within those two months due to a series of events that rendered it impossible to hold them.  To start with I wish to extend your Governing Council’s words of condolences for those who have lost their loved ones due to the coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) and those who have relatives suffering from this global pandemic. This disease has not and does not deprive the bereaved families of their loved ones but the opportunity to bury them and closure as well. We urge all of you, and all fellow Tanzanians, to take good care of ourselves to defeat this pandemic. Your Governing Council understands that our legal practices have been severely impacted by COVID-19 and that most of us are struggling to make the ends meet. We do say Poleni Sana and we urge you and ourselves to persevere and surely, we shall overcome.

In November 2019 your Governing Council learned that the Government was planning to table to the Parliament of the United Republic of Tanzania, a Bill known as The Written Laws Miscellaneous Amendments (No.8 of 2019) in January 2020. Your Governing Council thought that the Bill if passed, was going to profoundly change our Society’s institutional structure as well as powers and rights of the members in the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The Bill also geared at introducing 7 Zone Chapters and make each zone to be represented in the Governing Council by one person and end the direct election of members of the Governing Council by the AGM. It did not end there, as it also sought to introduce a two one-year tenure of members of the Governing Council including the President, Vice President, and the Honorary Treasury and statutorily establish the position of the Executive Director and the manners of removing him from office, hitherto, employed contractually by the Governing Council.

Your Governing Council convened immediately on the 19th of November 2019 and after long but methodical deliberations it decided that the intended amendments needed the considerations of all members of TLS in their respective Chapters. The Secretariat was told to inform members of this resolution and that members should convene and hold their respective extraordinary chapter general meeting to deliberate on the proposed amendments and give their views. Chapters leaders were to submit the views of their members to the Constitutional and Legal Affairs Committee.  Your Governing Council was heartened by the rapid and enthusiastic responses of the members. The Chapters meetings were held in early December 2019. Thereafter the Constitutional and Legal Affairs Committee sifted through the views and came up with a series of recommendations that were submitted to the Governing Council.

Members were almost unanimous while airing their views, that their right to elect their leaders should not be taken away, zonal offices and a representative AGM were going to overburden TLS as they entail huge financial outlays on TLS. They were of the view that the two-one-year term for the President, Vice President, Honorary Treasury and 8 Members of the Governing Council was not good to the Society as it is going to keep the current system of electing TLS leaders annually instead of a two or three-year term proposed by TLS members.

In January 2020 TLS presented its views to the Constitutional and Legal Affairs Committee of the Parliament of the United Republic of Tanzania in writing as well as during the public hearing on the 17th of January 2020. TLS pointed clearly the flaws of the said Bill and how it was going to not only overburden it financially but it will somewhat deprive members of their right to elect their leaders and hold them to account directly. The zonal offices pose a threat of planting “zonalism” in the Society instead of nationhood in the minds of the members.    Unfortunately, when the Parliament met it almost passed the Bill the way it was first submitted by the Government. The President of the United Republic of Tanzania assented to it on the 14th of February 2020 and the law is now in force.

Following the passage of the Written Laws (Miscellaneous Amendments) Act No 1 of 2020 the Governing Council met on the 7th of February 2020 and decided the following that:

  1. That the AGM should be held in Arusha on 25th of April 2020 and it is to be preceded by the General Elections of the Society to be held on the 23rd of April 2020 and that the Annual General Conference be held on the 24th of April;
  2. That the Governing Council should invoke its powers to invite members to take part in the AGM, Annual Conference and the General Elections of the Society; and
  3. That the Nominations Committee should be informed of these decisions and the members as well.

Unfortunately, a few days later the Chairperson of the Nominations Committee, Mr. Tom Nyanduga resigned from his position for undisclosed personal reasons. This had had huge ramifications. Your Governing Council was forced to make a search for a new Chairperson of this important committee, the position that is traditionally held by a former president of the Tanganyika Law Society.

It took some time to find a former President ready to step in and become the Chairperson of the Nominations Committee. On the 21st of February 2020 Mr. Charles Rwechungura, former president, agreed and the Nominations Committee met on the 29th of February 2020 and upon deliberating on the task ahead of it was of the view that the elections process could not take place under the TLS Elections Regulations GN No 116 of 2018, the TLS AGM could not be properly constituted following the amendment of the TLS Act, there was a need to convene an extraordinary General Meeting to deliberate on the amendment’s implications and that where possible there is a need to meet with the Attorney General to appraise him on the legal crisis caused by the amendments.

Your Governing Council met on the 3rd of March 2020 to receive the Nominations Committee’s recommendations and the status of the TLS leadership as it tenure is supposed to come to an end in April 2020. After much deliberations, it was resolved that:

  1. The TLS leadership will continue to exist as per section 31(b) of the Interpretation of Laws Act so as to ensure a smooth transition of leadership from the current one to the new one after the elections are held;
  2. The Drafting Committee should draft the Elections Guidelines to be used to provide guidance on the positions created by the Written Laws Miscellaneous Amendment Act No 1 of 2020 within 4 days.
  3. That the Governing Council should meet immediately thereafter meet to deliberate on the Guidelines.

On the 7th and 8th of March 2020 the Drafting Committee met and drafted the Elections Guidelines which were later on approved by the Governing Council on the 13th of March 2020.

In its meeting of the 13th day of March 2020 the Governing Council also established seven (7) TLS Zones i.e. Mzizima, Bagamoyo, Northern, Western, Lake, Southern, and Central.   The Governing Council also established six new chapters: Kinondoni, Ilala, Temeke, Ubungo, Kigamboni, and Pwani. The six chapters arise out of Dar es Salaam Chapter which due to the fact that 70% of all practicing advocates in the country are in Dar es Salaam and that since the annual general meeting is primarily a representative one then to ensure that advocates from Dar es Salaam region receive a fair representation then each district in Dar es Salaam should become a chapter.

The Governing Council was further informed that since the TLS Elections Regulations require the issuance of a 60-day notice before elections are held, then there was no way the AGM could be held on the 25th day of April 2020. It was on that basis that the Governing Council was forced to push back the AGM to be held between the 22nd to the 27th of June 2020. It was further resolved that the TLS Annual Conference be held in the morning to the afternoon of the 25th day of June 2020; the General Elections be on the 25th to the 26th day of 2020. That the pre-AGM be held from the 22nd to the 24th of June 2020. That given the shortness of time all pre-AGM, Society General Elections will be held in Arusha. The Governing Council invoked its powers to invite all members to take part in all these important meetings.  Members, however, have as usual the right to choose the CLE seminars they wish to attend.

On the 19th day of March, the Nominations Committee prepared the Timeline for the General Election by the Nominations Committee. The Nominations Committee also resolved that the Call for Nominations be issued to all members with a deadline being the 14th day of April 2020. The Secretariat on the 25th day of March 2020 sent the Elections Guidelines of 2020 together with TLS Elections Regulations GN 116 of 2018 to the members which were followed with the Call for Nominations on the 1st day of April 2020.  It needs to be remembered that on the 31st day of March 2020 the Secretariat published/circulated the Annual Conference, General Meeting and the AGM Notice to the members.

That was the state of affairs until the 15th day of April 2020 when TLS President received a letter from the Attorney General questioning the legality of the TLS Elections Guidelines and the elections that will be guided by it. The AG insists that the new election regulations be promulgated first before elections are held and that the current leadership of TLS continues to hold office until the proper elections are held as per the new regulations citing section 45 of the Interpretation of Laws Act Cap 1 R.E. 2002. Given its huge legal implications your Governing Council met virtually on the 17th day of April 2020 and decided to do the following:

  1. That the Drafting Committee to convene immediately and prepare a draft TLS Elections Regulation 2020 incorporating the guidance provided in the Guidelines;
  2. To prepare a response to the AG’s letter;
  3. Seek a meeting with the Attorney General to appraise him on the status of the TLS elections as well as the legal import of the Elections Guidelines, together with the desire of the Your Governing Council to hold the elections as scheduled; and
  4. Members be informed of all these developments so as to know what is going on.

It is your Governing Council’s hope that this rendition of the series of events has put you in the picture and removed any lingering questions as to the status of the TLS elections. Your Governing Council is keen to see that the elections are held as scheduled barring any outside force or event. We do urge all members to take TLS to continue taking TLS’s affairs seriously and also vie for positions to fill all positions that by law become vacant each year and the new positions.  Your Governing Council will keep you informed on any new developments.

Issued by the order of the Governing Council on the 27th day of April 2020.

TAMKO NA RAI YA TLS KWA UMMA JUU YA MBINU ZA KUPAMBANA NA UGONJWA WA KORONA

Ndugu Watanzania,

Mnamo tarehe 16 Machi 2020, Serikali ya Jamhuri ya Muungano ya Tanzania, kupitia kwa Waziri wa Afya, Jinsia na Watoto, Mh Ummy Mwalimu, ilitangaza kuingia nchini kwa ugonjwa wa virusi vya korona baada ya mgonjwa mmoja kugundulika mkoani Arusha. Hadi Jumamosi ya tarehe 18 Aprili 2020 wagonjwa 147 wamegundulika nchini, huku watano kati yao wakipoteza maisha. Kwa hiyo ndani ya mwezi mmoja tu idadi ya wagonjwa imeongezeka kwa kiwango kikubwa sana kwa vipimo vya asilimia. Siku moja tu, baadae, yaani tarehe 17 Machi 2020 Waziri Mkuu aliamuru kufungwa kwa shule zote nchini na baada ya siku chache amri hii ilivikumba vyuo vyote ambavyo wanafunzi wake walikuwa likizo.

Sambamba na kufungwa kwa vyuo, Serikali ilizuia mikutano na mikusanyiko ya watu wengi katika sehemu mbalimbali isipokuwa misiba na ibada za kidini. Aidha, ilitaka usafiri wa umma uzingatie uwezo wa upakiaji wa kila gari na hivyo kuzuia upakiaji wa abiria zaidi ya idadi ya viti vya kuketi katika gari.  Haikuishia hapo, ikataka wananchi kufuata ushauri wa wataalamu wa afya, na kunawa mikono yao kwa sabuni na vitakasaji, na kutumia vichuja pumzi (masks/barakoa) ili kuzuia maambukizi kati ya mgonjwa na yule asiye na ugonjwa. Hatua nyingine ni kuepuka mbanano wa watu popote pale walipo na hivyo kuhakikisha umbali-jamii  wa walau mita moja na nusu kati ya mtu na mtu.

Shirika la Afya Ulimwenguni (WHO) limeutangaza ugonjwa wa virusi vya korona maarufu kama COVID-19, kuwa ni baa la dunia.  Tangazo hilo linaaminisha kuwa nchi zote duniani ni waathirika wa ugonjwa huo na kuwa mikakati na juhudi za pamoja lazima zielekezwe kupambana na ugonjwa huo. Hadi tarehe 18 Aprili 2020 idadi ya wagonjwa wa ugonjwa huu duniani ni 2,258,909 na vifo ni 154,388 huku Marekani, Italia, Hispania na Uingereza zikiwa ndizo zinazoongoza kwa idadi ya wagonjwa na vifo.

Licha ya kuwa ugonjwa huu umezikumba karibu nchi zote duniani, nchi ambazo zilichukua hatua kamili zisizo na mlegezo wowote hivi sasa zimeweza kudhibiti kuenea kwa ugonjwa huu. Nchi hizo ni Korea ya Kusini, Ujerumani, Denmark, Norway, na hata majirani zetu wa Uganda na Rwanda. Korea-Kusini na Ujerumani ziliweka mkazo katika zuio la watu kutoka nje na upimaji wa watu kwa idadi kubwa ili kubaini walioambukizwa na kuweza kuwatoa katika jamii, kuwafahamu wale waliokutana nao, na kuweza kuwatibu. Aidha, Korea Kusini iliwataka wananchi wake kuvaa vichuja pumzi muda wote wanapokuwa wametoka nje. Ujerumani nayo iliwekeza sana katika kupima watu, kuwabaini wagonjwa, kuwapeleka wagonjwa katika hospitali maalumu na kuwapatia matibabu. Nchi za Italia, Hispania, na Marekani kwa upande mwingine zilichelewa kuchukua hatua kamili za kuzuia mikusanyiko ya watu, sherehe, na huduma za maisha ya kawaida. Zilikuja kuzinduka na kuweka mazuio makali wakati ugonjwa umeingia na kusambaa sana na hivyo hatua walizochukua ni za kuchelewa ambazo zilikuwa ni za kupambana na moto wa gesi. Madhara ya kuchelewa yamesababisha watu wengi kupoteza maisha yao na kuparaganyika kwa chumi zao.  Marekani ambayo hadi tarehe 20 Januari 2020 ilikuwa na mgonjwa mmoja sasa ina wagonjwa 759,786 na zaidi ya vifo 40,683.

TLS kwa kutambua wajibu wake wa kisheria chini ya kifungu cha 4 cha Sheria ya Chama cha Sheria cha Tanganyika (Tanganyika Law Society Act) kinachoipa majukumu ya kutoa ushauri wa kisheria kwa Serikali, Bunge, Mahakama na umma, na kuongozwa na jukumu azizi ambalo kila mwananchi wa Tanzania analo chini ya Ibara ya 14 ya Katiba ya Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania isemayo: “14. Kila mtu anayo haki ya kuishi na kupata kutoka kwa jamii hifadhi ya maisha yake, kwa mujibu wa sheria.”, inapenda kutoa ushauri huu kwa wadau wake wote yaani Serikali, Bunge, Mahakama, na watu wote waishio nchini Tanzania:

a. Kuwekwa marufuku ya mikusanyiko ya watu katika sehemu mbambali ikiwa ni pamoja kwenye baa, sherehe za harusi na za kijamii, mikutano ya viongozi wa Serikali isipokuwa ya kiutendaji ya kamati maalumu za kupambana na baa la ugonjwa wa korona. Ieleweke kuwa zuio hili halitagusa watu wa sekta za afya, ulinzi na usalama, bandari na usafirishaji wa bidhaa zinazotakiwa kutumika nchini na nje ya nchi. Ila wafanyakazi wote hawa lazima wapewe vifaa vya kujikinga na maambukizi;

b. Kuweka utaratibu mzuri wa watu kuingia na kutoka masokoni kujipatia mahitaji yao ikiwa ni pamoja na kuanzisha masoko-mitaa katika siku maalumu za wiki kwa watu kujipatia mahitaji yao ya msingi;

c. Kuwekwa karantini ya watu wote kutoka nje ya nyumba zao kwa muda wa siku 21 nchini kote ili kuweza kuzuia kuendelea kusambaa kwa ugonjwa huu nchini hii ni kuongozwa na kanuni ya kuzuia (precautionary principle) au kuzuia ni bora kuliko tiba ambayo ni kanuni ya 15 ya Azimio la Rio na ni moja ya kanuni za msingi za ulinzi wa mazingira na afya ya watu zilizoanishwa na kifungu cha 7(3)(c) cha Sheria ya Utunzaji Mazingira ya Mwaka 2004 na vifungu 4(1)(a)-(d), 9(2) na 12(1) vya Sheria ya Afya Jamii Namba 1 ya Mwaka 2009 pamoja na Kanuni za Kimataifa za Afya za Mwaka 2005 ambazo ni sehemu ya Sheria ya Afya Jamii ya Mwaka 2009;

d. Kuhakikisha kuwa madaktari, wauguzi na wote wanawahudumia wagonjwa wa virusi vya korona wanapewa nguo na vifaa vya kutosha vya kujikinga na maambukizi;

e. Kwa kuwa mfungo wa Ramadhani unatarajiwa kuanza wiki hii, Serikali iweke mkazo wa kuhakikisha kuwa vyakula vya muhimu vitakiwavyo vinapatikana kwa bei nafuu na kuuzwa kwa utaratibu mzuri ambao utazuia maambukizi;

f. Sambamba na zuio la aina ya karantini usafiri wa umma na binafsi upigwe marufuku kwa muda wa siku 21 ili kuweza kuzuia kusambazwa kwa ugonjwa huu;

g. Kuanzishwa kwa mkakati maalumu wa kupima watu nchini ili kuweza kuwabaini watu ambao wameambukizwa ambao wanajijua au wasiojijua kama zilivyofanya na zinavyofanya nchi za Korea Kusini, Ujerumani, na hata majirani zetu wa Rwanda, Kenya na Uganda,

h. Kunyunyizia dawa katika miji na mitaa mbalimbali hapa nchini ili kuua virusi wa ugonjwa wa korona,

i. Kutoa msamaha wa kulipa mikopo na marejesho ya malipo ya mikopo kwa muda wa miezi mitatu kwa watu waliokopa kutoka taasisi za fedha nchini;

j. Serikali kuhakikisha kuwa vifaa vya kujikinga na ugonjwa huu vinagawiwa na kusambazwa kwa wananchi bure au kwa bei nafuu kabisa huku Mamlaka za Maji zikiweka kiwango cha maji ambacho hakitatozwa tozo za kila mwezi kama njia ya kukabiliana na ugonjwa huu;

k. Serikali kuandaa na kutekeleza mkakati maalumu wa kuziokoa sekta za kiuchumi nchini ambazo zimeathiriwa kutokana na baa la ugonjwa huu;

l. Benki kuweka mkakati wa makusudi kuirejea na kuihusha mikataba ya mikopo kutokana na wakopaji wao kukabiliwa na hali ngumu ya kiuchumi kutokana na baa hili kwa kutumia kanuni ya nguvu isiyohimilika (farce majeure);

m. Aidha, kuzuia kutozwa kodi ya pango kwa waajiri na wafanya biashara kwa kipindi cha miezi mitatu kama njia ya kutoa nafuu kwa waajiri na wafanya biashara kutokana na mdororo mkubwa wa uchumi uliosababishwa na baa la ugonjwa wa korona;

p. Kuboreshwa kwa mfumo wa afya jamii ili kuwezesha kukabiliana na milipuko ya pili na ya tatu ya ugonjwa huu kwani kwa mujibu wa historia ya mabaa ya magonjwa ya maangamizi kama huu wa korona, mlipuko wa kwanza hufuatiwa na milipuko mingine ya pili na ya tatu;

q. Kuheshimu bila kuyumba au kejeli umuhimu wa kutunza na kulinda mazingira nchini ikiwa ni pamoja na sheria za mipango mijini, na afya jamii;

s. Waajiri kuweka utaratibu wa wafanyakazi wao kufanya kazi wakiwa nyumbani kwa shughuli zile ambazo zinaweza kufanywa wafanyakazi wakiwa nyumbani ili kupunguza kuparaganyika kwa uchumi nchini;

t. Kufuatwa na kuheshimiwa kwa Sheria ya Afya Jamii Namba 1 ya Mwaka 2009 ambayo imeanisha madaraka ya Waziri, Maafisa Afya wa Mikoa na Wilaya pamoja na mamlaka ya kuwaweka wagonjwa karantini;

u. Kurekebisha Sheria ya Afya Jamii na kutoa Mamlaka kwa Waziri wa Afya kutangaza kwa baa au janga la ugonjwa wa maangamizi, maambukizi na mlipuko wa kitaifa na kimataifa na hatua zinazotakiwa kufuatwa na kila mwananchi katika eneo husika ili kuzuia au kukabiliana na baa hilo;

v. Wananchi watumie tiba za asili zinazofahamika za kupambana na magonjwa ya maambukizi ya hewa kama sehemu ya kujikinga na kujiepusha na ugonjwa huu bila kuacha kufuata mashariti ya wataalamu wa afya;

w. Kuboreshwa kwa Sheria ya Afya Jamii Namba 1 ya Mwaka 2009 ili kuunda taasisi ya kitaifa ya kushughulikia magonjwa ya mlipuko, maambukizi, na maangamizi na kuratibu utendaji wa kazi za afya jamii zinazofanywa na Serikali za mitaa. Aidha, sheria iweke mkazo wa kutengwa na kupewa rasilimali fedha na watu kwa taasisi zinazohusika na masuala ya afya jamii na kinga dhidi ya utendaji kugeuzwa mchezo wa kisiasa;

x. Kuondolewa magerezani mahabusu ambao makosa yao yanadhaminika na wale ambao walizuiwa kupewa dhamana kutokana na Mkurugenzi wa Mashitaka kuweka hati ya kuzuiwa dhamana zao;

y. Kutolewa msamaha wa Raisi kwa wafungwa ambao wanakaribia kumaliza muda wao na wale ambao makosa yao si ya mauaji, ubakaji, wizi wa kutumia nguvu, na dawa za kulevya kama heroini.

z. Mahakama kuahirisha kusikilizwa kwa kesi kwa kipindi cha siku 30 na kuendelea kusikiliza kesi zile tu ambazo zaweza kusikilizwa kwa njia ya mtandao wa video huku usalama wa mahakimu, majaji, mashahidi na wadaawa ukihakikishwa.

aa. Viongozi wa kidini wachukue hatua madhubuti za kuanza kuendesha ibada na sala zao kwa njia ya redio na mitandao ili kuondoa uwezekano wa kuambukizana;

bb. Watu wote wasali kwa unyofu mkubwa sana kwa Mungu wetu mwema ili atuokoe na baa hili sisi sote hapa nchini na duniani kote;

cc. Baa hili liwe funzo kwa dunia nzima kuwa mifumo ya nchi zote duniani ya afya ina upungufu mkubwa licha ya tofauti zetu za kiuchumi. Ni lazima nchi zote zishirikiane kuweza kuboresha mifumo yao ya afya. Kwa upande wetu hapa nchini tujue kuwa afya ni mali na hivyo tuwekeze sana katika kuboresha miundomisingi ya afya licha ya uchumi wetu mdogo. Tuige mfano wa Cuba ambayo ina mfumo mzuri sana wa afya licha ya uchumi wake mdogo.

Ni imani ya TLS kuwa hatua tulizopendekeza zitaiwezesha nchi yetu kuushinda ugonjwa huu na kurejea katika maisha yetu ya awali, yaliyobusarishwa na ugonjwa huu, kwa haraka sana. Kama hatua hizi madhubuti hazitachukuliwa ni wazi kuwa shule na vyuo havitafunguliwa, michezo na shughuli za kawaida zitaendelea kufungwa kwa kipindi chote cha mwaka huu kwani kila siku idadi ya wagonjwa itazidi kuongezeka na hivyo kuwa katika mazingira magumu kabisa. Kuendelea kuwepo kwa ugonjwa kwa muda mrefu kutakuwa na athari kubwa sana za kiuchumi sana kwani mataifa mengine ambayo yatakuwa yamekwisha utokomeza ugonjwa huu, yatakataza raia wao kuja nchini na raia wetu watakatazwa kwenda katika nchi hizo na hivyo nchi yetu kupoteza fursa nyingi sana za kiuchumi tukitaja tu sekta ya utalii.

TLS inawataka Watanzania na watu wote wanaoishi nchini kutoufanyia mzaha ugonjwa huu wa korona na wafuate kwa umakini maagizo ya wataalamu wa afya. Wananchi tuache mikusanyiko, tukae majumbani mwetu, tutoke nje tu kuhemea mahitaji ya muhimu, tuwafundishe watoto wetu, tutiane moyo, na kusali kwa Mungu wetu bila kuchoka. TLS inaamini kuwa Mungu wetu mwema atasikiliza sala zetu pale ambapo tumefanya majuto ya kweli, tumeacha njia zetu mbaya, tumewabaini wagonjwa wa ugonjwa huu, tumewagundua walioaambukizwa ila si wagonjwa, na kuzuia kuendelea kwa maambukizo. Tusitegemee miujiza kutoka kwa Mungu bila sisi kufanya kila tutakiwacho kwa akili tulizokirimiwa na Mwenyezi Mungu.

Imetolewa kwa mamlaka ya Baraza la Uongozi wa TLS Jijini Dar es Salaam leo tarehe 20 Aprili 2020

TAHADHARI JUU YA MLIPUKO WA VIRUSI VYA CORONA (COVID _19) NA MABADILIKO KATIKA UTOWAJI WA HUDUMA  

Ndugu mwanachama wa Chama cha Mawakili Tanganyika,  Mwananchi na Mdau wetu;
Kutokana na idadi  ya maambukizi ya virusi vya Corona (COVID-19) kuzidi kuongezeka, Chama cha Mawakili Tanganyika (TLS) kinatoa wito kwako kuzidi kuchukua tahadhari ya kujikinga na maambukizi ya ugonjwa huu ambapo mpaka sasa,   unazidi kuenea ulimwenguni  kote kwa kasi kubwa, vifo vinazidi kuongezeka  na kinga au  tiba yake bado haijapatikana.
TLS imeamua kuchukua tahadhari na hatua zaidi katika kupambana na ugonjwa huu kwa kuulinda umma,  wanachama wake, wafanyakazi na wadau wengine kwa ujumla:

Tahadhari na Kujikinga dhidi ya Corona (COVID-19)
Ni vyema kuchukua tahadhari kabla ya hatari katika kupambana na kujikinga na ugonjwa huu  kwa kufanya  na kuzingatia yafuatayo:
(i)                 Kuepuka sehemu za Mikusanyiko.
(ii)               Kuepuka safari au mizunguko isiyo ya lazima,
(iii)             Kunawa Mikono kwa maji tiririka na sabuni mara kwa mara,
(iv)             Kutumia Vitakasa Mikono (sanitaizer),
(v)               Kula mlo kamili na kula vyakula vyenye vitamin C kwa wingi ili kuimarisha kinga ya mwili,
(vi)             Kufanya Mazoezi ili kuhimarisha afya kamili,
(vii)           Kuzingatia  kikamilifu maelezo ya maelekezo yanayotolewa na Wizara ya Afya au Serikali, na
(viii)         Kwenda kituo cha afya au kutoa taarifa pale utakapokuwa  au utakapomuona mtu mwenye  dalili za ugojwa huu kama vile mafua makali, homa kali, kushindwa kupumua vizuri, maumivu ya kichwa na dalili zingine zilizo elezwa na Wizara ya Afya.

Pamoja na kuushauri umma, wanachama na wadau wetu  kuchukua tahadhari na kujikinga na ugonjwa huu, Chama pia kimechukua hatua mbalimbali katika kupambana na ugonjwa huu katika mazingira yake ya kazi  kama ifuatavyo:

Kusitisha shughuli zote zinazohusisha mikusanyiko

TLS imesitisha shughuli zote zinazohusisha mikusanyiko ya watu ikiwemo semina (CLEs), mikutano na warsha  mpaka hapo ambapo mamlaka husika zitakapotangaza kuwa ni salama kuendelea na shughuli hizi.
Vikao vya Kamati pamoja  na Baraza la Uongozi la Chama

Wafanyakazi wengine wataendelea kufanya kazi wakiwa nyumbani au mahali pengine popote kulingana na majukumu.
