Joan Rivers Has Died At 81

Trailblazing comedian Joan Rivers has died a week after going into medical distress during a throat operation. She was 81.

The sharp-tongued entertainer made audiences laugh with her quick wit and wry observations on life and love for 50 years, after being blessed by “Tonight Show” host Johnny Carson with the benediction: “God, you’re funny.”

Rivers, born Joan Alexandra Molinsky on June 8, 1933 to Russian Jewish immigrants, had dreams of being an actress while growing up in Brooklyn. She graduated from Barnard College in 1954, changed her name to Joan Rivers and hit the audition circuit, making small television appearances before learning that stand-up comedy would be a good way to earn money.

George Otieno Okumu populary known as George Tyson, one of the earliest film directors in Tanzanian movie industry which is now famously known as Bongo Movies, is no more. According to numerous sources including social network’s posts from people close to him such as Ezden [through Instagram Account Ezdee255] and his ex wife(Monalisa), Tyson passed away following a car accident which occurred  when the crew of the production team of The Mboni Show [which George Tyson was its producer/director] were traveling from Dodoma to Dar-es-salaam. The crew was in Dodoma as part of  3rd years anniversary of the show. They had also shot new episodes and distributed desks at a couple of schools around Dodoma.

The said accident took place at Gairo-Morogoro area around 6pm-7pm. The Toyota Noah that they were traveling with experienced front tires burst before rolling several times. There was total of 8 passengers and while others are said to have suffered minor injuries, the accident killed Tyson. The host of the show,Mboni Masimba was not injured in the accident as per initial reports that circulated. She was traveling in a different vehicle.

George’s death comes as a shock to almost anyone who has been following news surrounding Tanzania’s movie industry lately. In less than three weeks, the industry has witnessed the passing of some of its core members. Just two weeks ago they lost one of the leading actor/director Adam Kuambiana. Before no one could forget, an actress Recho Haule passed away.

Tyson, who was 41 years old and originally from Kenya, is one of the most popular film directors in Tanzania and is also considered to be one of its pioneers. He became famous after producing and directing earlier movies such as Girl Friend and Dilemma.

In his movies, Tyson took an initiative of using anyone who he sees fit to bring the “reality” piece to the screen. For example, he used artists such as TID (in Girl Friend with theme from TID’s song ). His gamble turned out to be a great success that also gave the movie industry that had gone silent [or dead] for over two decades a brand new life.

Few years later after enjoying success from his Girl Friend movie, Tyson fell in love and married actress Yvonne Cherryl (Monalisa) who was the lead actress in Girl Friend. However, the couple divorced few years later. They have one child,Sonia Akinyi.

He later added documentaries producer/director to his portfolio. His notable documentary includes a TGNP project on Gender Equality which he directed and produced when  the organization was celebrating its 10th Anniversary.

As mentioned above,till his death he was the producer/director of The Mboni Show which airs on East Africa TV[EATV]. May his Soul Rest In Peace. Amen.

Kuambiana1

Tasnia ya filamu  nchini Tanzania(Bongo Movies) na Tanzania kwa ujumla imepata pigo kubwa la kuondokewa na miongoni mwa waigizaji na waongoza filamu wazoefu, Adam Kuambiana.

Kwa mujibu wa Global Publishers mtandao unaoongoza kwa kuwa karibu na wasanii wa tasnia ya filamu nchini, Marehemu Kuambiana amefikwa na mauti katika hospitali ya Mama Ngoma iliyopo maeneo ya Mwenge jijini Dar-es-salaam alipokimbizwa baada ya kuanguka akiwa chooni katika Hotel ya Silver iliyopo maeneo ya Sinza ambapo walikuwa kambi wakiendelea ku-shoot filamu.

Kabla ya hapo Adam Kuambiana alilalamika kusumbuliwa na tumbo. Chanzo kamili cha kifo chake hakijawekwa wazi. Tayari mwili umetolewa Mwenge na kupelekwa Muhimbili kuhifadhiwa na kwa uchunguzi zaidi. BC inaungana na wapenzi wote wa filamu na watanzania kwa ujumla kutoa pole nyingi kwa ndugu,jamaa na marafiki wa Adam Kuambiana.Mwenyezi Mungu Ailaze Roho Yake Mahali Pema Peponi.

Ni kwa masikitiko makubwa naandika taarifa hii. Habari ambazo zimetufikia kupitia vyanzo mbalimbali vya habari ambavyo tuna kila sababu ya kuviamini, zinapasha kwamba aliyekuwa Mjumbe wa Tume Ya Mabadiliko Ya Katiba, mkufunzi mkongwe wa sheria ambaye baadae aliingia kwenye siasa, Dr. Edmund Sengondo Mvungi amefariki dunia nchini Afrika Kusini katika hospitali ya Milpark alipokuwa amepelekwa kwa matibabu zaidi.

 

Mnamo tarehe 3 Novemba, Dr.Mvungi alivamiwa na watu wanaosadikika kuwa majambazi nyumbani kwake Kibamba-Msakuzi nje kidogo ya jiji la Dar-es-salaam. Katika tukio hilo, Dr.Mvungi aliumizwa vibaya hususani maeneo ya kichwani. Alikimbizwa katika hospitali ya Tumbi-Kibaha kabla ya kuhamishiwa Muhimbili kwenye Taasisi ya Mifupa kabla ya kuhamishwa tena kwenda Milpark Hospital iliyopo jijini Johannesburg nchini Afrika Kusini.

 

Dr.Mvungi ambaye alizaliwa mwaka 1952 aliwahi kugombea Urais nchini Tanzania katika Uchaguzi Mkuu wa mwaka 2005 kupitia chama cha NCCR-Mageuzi ambapo alipata jumla ya kura 55,819 sawa sawa na asilimia 0.43% na hivyo kushika nafasi ya 5 miongoni mwa wagombea 10 waliokuwa wanawania uraisi katika uchaguzi huo.

 

Alikuwa ni msomi na mkufunzi wa sheria aliyebobea. Miongoni mwa vyuo alivyowahi kusoma ni pamoja na

1994: Dr. iur (MCL) Hamburg University

1991: Magister Legum (MCL) Hamburg University

1987: LLM University of Dar es Salaam

1981: LLB (Hons) University of Dar es Salaam

Mpaka anafariki dunia marehemu alikuwa ni  Deputy Vice Chancellor (ARC) – University of Bagamoyo, Advocate of the High Court and Court of Appeal of Tanzania, Commissioner for Oaths and Notary Public, Member of the National Executive Council, NCCR – Mageuzi Party.

Mapema jana, Waziri wa Mambo Ya Ndani, Dr.Emmanuel Nchimbi alitangaza kwamba jumla ya watu 9 wanaosadikika kuhusika na tukio hilo la uvamizi kwa Dr.Mvungi wamekamatwa na kwamba taratibu zinafanyika kuwafikisha mahakamani. Bila shaka makosa yaliyokuwa yakiwakabili yataongezeka kutokana na kufariki dunia kwa Dr.Mvungi.

 

Mungu ailaze roho ya marehemu mahali pema peponi.Pole nyingi kwa ndugu,jamaa na marafiki.

2013 can’t go unnoticed as one of the worse years in Tanzania’s media and entertainment industry’s eyes. As if all the people we have already lost since January isn’t enough, today we mourn the passing away of a friend and one of the best DJs in the country, DJ Rankim Ramadhani.

The available reports  that we have obtained puts forward an announcement that DJ Rankim Ramadhani has passed away at Mwananyamala Hospital.  According to the reports, and through Radio One [Breaking News segment] Rankim he was suffering from stomachache[probably from ulcers] and on Sunday he suddenly fell when he was with friends at Meeda Bar in Sinza. They rushed him to Sinza Palestine Hospital where he was treated and allowed to go home. At home, things got worse. He was taken back to Sinza Hospital before being transferred to Mwananyamala Hospital  where he passed away earlier today around 3pm. The arrangements of his funerals are underway.

Rest In Peace Rankim. You have gone down as one of the best DJs and a real hustler. You never gave up even when things seemed way too fuzzy.
