Prof Elliot C Phiri, Rasi wa Ndaki ya CVMBS

Katika mashindano hayo yaliyotamatishwa leo, timu na mtu mmoja mmoja kutoka Ndaki ya Tiba ya Mifugo na Sayansi za Afya wametia fora kwa kushinda katika michezo mbalimbali

Profesa Elliot E. Phiri ambaye ni Rasi wa Ndaki ameongoza wanandaki wake kwa kuibuka kidedea katika mbio na kukimbiza kuku. Katika mbio za mita 100 Prof Phiri ametimua mbio na kumaliza kwa sekunde 13 akiwaacha wenzake na kujishindia medali ya dhahabu.

Aidha, katika mchezo wa kuvuta kamba timu ya SUA iliyoongozwa na Prof Phiri na Prof Karugila imezibwaga timu za NMB na CRDB na kuibuka kidedea.

Kwenye kandanda, timu ya CVMBS ilimenyana vilivyo na kuibuka na ushindi wa goli 3-0 dhidi ya NBM, na baadae wakajikuta wakichabangwa goli 2-1 na CRDB.

Funga kazi sasa ni pale Prof Phiri alipohakikisha kwenye kufukuza kuku anatimua mbio na kutumia mbinu za uwindaji alizojifunza huko Mbeya na kujikamatia jogoo wake mkubwa kabisa, ama hakika leo ataenda kupooza uchovu wa michezo kwa kitoweo safi sana.

 

Tunazipongeza timu zote za Ndaki ya Tiba ya Mifugo na Sayansi za Afya na kwa namna ya pekee tukimpongeza Rasi wetu, Prof Phiri.

WATOTO NI MARAFIKI WA WANYAMA. TUWAPE NAFASI

IMG 20210510 WA0142

Sio jambo la ajabu kukuta watoto ndio wanakuwa karibu sana na wanyama wa kufugwa hasa tunaowaita companion animals mfano mbwa na paka 

Kuna wakati watoto wanakuwa karibu sana na wanyama hawa kiasi cha kuumia sana pale mnyama anapopata matatizo. Zipo familia ambazo mtoto anaweza kuwa rafiki na mbwa kiasi kwamba anaweza kumgawia chakula chake. 

Ukaribu wa watoto na wanyama unatakiwa utukumbushe mambo mawili; kwanza umuhimu wa kuwapa watoto nafasi ya kuwatunza na pili kuwakinga watoto dhidi ya magonjwa yanayoweza kuambukizwa kutoka ka wanyama. 

Kwa mantiki hiyo, wazazi wanapokuwa na wanyama companion nyumbani ni muhimu kuhakikisha wanapatiwa chanjo zote muhimu ikiwemo ya kichaa cha mbwa na dawa za minyoo kadiri wanavyoshauriwa na wataalamu. Hii itasaidia sana kuwalinda watoto na pia kuwapa wanyama matunzo mazuri.
