Vitabu 53 nilivyosoma mwaka 2016

The Strongman: Vladimir Putin and struggle for Russia – Augus Roxburgh

The Strongman: Vladimir Putin and struggle for Russia – Augus Roxburgh

Mwaka 2016 nimesoma vitabu 53. Nimeongeza vitabu nilivyosoma tofauti na mwaka 2015 lakini sikuweza kufikia idadi ya mwaka 2014 ambapo nilisoma vitabu 56. Hiyo ndio rekodi ya juu zaidi tangu nilipoanza kuorodhesha vitabu nilivyosoma mnamo mwaka 2012. Mwaka 2013 niliorodhesha vitabu vichache zaidi nilivyosoma.

Mafanikio makubwa ya mwaka huu ni kuongeza vitabu vya Riwaya (fiction), ingawa mtaona mwandishi mmoja, Jeffrey Archer amejitokeza sana kuliko wengine. Hiyo ni kutokana na kusoma kazi yake moja nzuri na yenye mafunzo mengi sana kwa wanasiasa iitwayo First Among Equals. Kazi hiyo ilinifungua macho na kuanza kusoma Clifton Chronicles (vitabu 7) na kufuatia mapendekezo ya wanaonifuata kwenye mtandao wa kijamii wa Instagram niliweza kupata vitabu vingine vya mwandishi huyu. Kwangu mimi Bwana Jeffrey Archer ni Mwandishi wa Riwaya Bora wa Mwaka 2016.

Licha kutaka kuanza na Gavana Ben Bernanke, nilijikuta naanza na vitabu kuhusu Russia na Rais wa nchi hiyo Vladimir Putin. Msukumo huo ulitokana na namna nilivyomsoma Mtawala mpya wa Tanzania Rais John Magufuli kulinganisha na Kiongozi wa zamani wa nchi yetu Rais Jakaya Kikwete. Kitabu nilichoanza nacho mwaka 2016 ni The Strongman: Vladimir Putin and the Struggle for Russia kilichoandikwa na Angus Roxburgh. Baada ya kusoma kitabu hiki nilijikuta ninanunua vitabu vingi kuhusu Urusi, Putin, Udikteta, Demokrasia na Maendeleo ili kuweza kuelewa mwelekeo wa Siasa za Tanzania za sasa. Vitabu hivyo vimenisaidia sana kujua namna ya kutafsiri watawala wapya kiasi cha kuunda neno Dikteta Mamboleo (neo-dictatorship) na kuipa tafsiri yake mnamo tarehe 29 Septemba 2016; kwamba Dikteta Mamboleo ni mtawala ambaye ana uzalendo usio tiliwa shaka na anahangaika kuleta maendeleo ya nchi yake lakini hataki kuhojiwa kwa namna yeyote ile.

Mwaka 2016 pia ulinifunua kuhusu uwezo mkubwa na umahiri wa wachapishaji wa Vitabu wa ndani. Nilipata fursa adhimu ya kuzungumza na Mzee Walter Bgoya wa Mkuki na Nyota Publishers. Vitabu kadhaa nilivyosoma katika orodha ya mwaka huu vimechapishwa na Mkuki na Nyota. Nilijifunza mengi mapya ya historia ya nchi yetu na Afrika nzima. Juzuu za masimulizi ya Ukombozi wa Kusini mwa Afrika nilizipata kutoka Mkuki na Nyota na humo nilipata mambo mapya mengi sana. Kisa kimoja kinachonichekesha kila nikumbukapo ni hadithi ya Rais Khama (baba) wa Botswana alivyobeba machungwa kwenye ndege kumletea zawadi Mwalimu Nyerere akimtania kuwa sera zake za Ujamaa zilileta njaa nchini.

Mwaka huu ninawawekea mapema vitabu nilivyosoma tofauti na miaka iliyopita kwa sababu kwa uwezo wake Manani sitaweza kusoma vitabu vingine baada ya leo kwani nitakuwa na majukumu ya malezi. Karibu kwenye orodha ya vitabu vyangu mwaka 2016.
