A lecturer who demanded sex from his student in order to award her good grades has been sentenced to three years in prison, with an alternative of Tsh5 million (Ksh220, 000) fine.
Samson Mahimbo, a 69-year-old college lecturer at the National Institute of Transport (NIT) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania pleaded guilty to demanding sex from his student in order to award her good marks in a supplementary exam.
According to k24tv, the ruling was delivered on Tuesday, November 26, at the Kisutu Resident Magistrate’s Court in Dar es Salaam.
Delivering the judgment, resident magistrate Huruma Shaidi said sex-for-grades arrangement leads to the churning out of unqualified professionals.
The Kisutu Resident Magistrate’s Court was told on October 9, that Samson Mahimbo was on January 11, 2017, caught naked in a lodging facility preparing to engage in sexual intercourse with his student. Mahimbo’s student was a Second-Year first-semester learner at the National Institute of Transport (NIT) in Dar es Salaam.
The student had failed her main exam in transport administrations and was scheduled to re-sit the paper on January 5, 2017, the court heard.
NIT lawyer, Faraja Salamba, told the Kisutu Court on October 9, that Mahimbo abused his powers by soliciting sex from one Victoria in exchange for good marks that he would award the student.
Salamba narrated that on January 11, 2017, the suspect called Victoria on phone and asked to meet her at an entertainment joint known as Shani Bar in Mwenge, North-West of Dar es Salaam.
“When they met, the learner was given the supplementary exam, which she sat for. Mahimbo had carried with him to the date a marking scheme. After ‘sitting the exam’, Mahimbo marked Victoria’s paper and gave her a score of 67 percent. The two, thereafter, left Shani Bar for a lodging facility known as Camp David within the same area,” the college’s lawyer, Salamba, told the court.
Salamba further claimed that the two, while at Camp David, binged on alcohol before booking a room, where Mahimbo was nabbed naked preparing to engage in sexual intercourse with the learner.
“The suspect had begun hugging and caressing the student before attempting to undress her, when they heard a knock on the door.
Victoria opened the door and police officers, who had been informed of the lecturer’s plan, arrested him. His clothes lay on the table at the time,” said Salamba.
The suspect was first arraigned on August 14, 2018.
During a subsequent arraignment in early 2019, Mahimbo denied that he attempted to solicit sexual favours in exchange for good marks, contrary to the anti-graft laws in Tanzania.
The prosecution said it had lined up six witnesses to prove their case against the suspect. Mahimbo, on the other hand, told the court that he would rely on four witnesses to prove that he was innocent.
On November 11, during a subsequent arraignment, the suspect admitted he demanded sex from his student in exchange for good grades.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has set up a special panel charged with investigating the $44.9 million wire fraud and money laundering case against Air Peace Chief Executive, Allen Onyema.
A source in the antigraft agency who spoke with The Nation, said the EFCC probe is to amongst other things, determine if Onyema is fronting for some politically exposed persons in the country.
“Upon the receipt of the charges, the EFCC chairman raised a team to probe the allegations against Onyema Eghagha, who were prominently mentioned in the indictment charges by the United States Government. The EFCC team is working on what I may term the ‘Nigerian components’ of the indictment including suspicious huge transfer of funds abroad, alleged abuse of letters of credit and money laundering.
“In fact, the Acting EFCC Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu directed the team members to work round the clock at the weekend because it is a case we must work on with speed. We are also interested in the roles played by two banks in the country including one that has been on our radar for a while for money laundering. This same bank was implicated in the $115million poll bribery scam in 2015 for which former Minister of Petroleum Resources Diezani Alison-Madueke is wanted for trial.
“We need to act because in the indictment, the US indicated its plans to freeze some funds linked with Onyema in some accounts within and outside its jurisdiction. It is standard practice to have collaboration with sister organisations all over the world. We cannot wait till the last minutes before playing our roles.”
Speaking further, the source said
“Certainly, our crack team will conduct a comprehensive investigation into the activities and remittances into the accounts of the four non-governmental organisations (NGOs) /non-profit groups of Onyema. Our immediate suspicion is that these four groups are likely to be tools for money laundering. The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), tax bodies and other agencies will assist on the status of these organisations.
“We have directed our detectives to ascertain or otherwise if Onyema is allegedly serving as a front for some politically exposed persons (PEPs).
The EFCC may also investigate other persons or groups that have assisted Onyema in one way or the other on the allegations against him. The indictment spoke of known and unknown persons.”
The US Department of Justice have accused Onyema alongside his airlines Chief of Administration and Finance, Ejiroghene Eghagha, of “moving more than $20 million from Nigeria through some United States banks in a scheme involving false documents based on the purchase of airplanes.”
Eghagha, who is the international airline’s Chief of Administration and Finance, was also accused of bank fraud and committing aggravated identity theft in connection with the scheme.
The US government In the charges against Onyema and Eghagha, accused them of using the money laundered to buy luxury cars, including a Rolls Royce for $180,000 and Mercedes for $88, 500 among others.
Onyema was also said to have spent thousands of dollars on personal purchases at Atlanta Georgia locations of Prada, Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, Louis Vuitton, the Apple Store and various airlines.
As Tweeted by Senator Dino Melaye. He said;
The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, yesterday, urged Nigerians to endure the high cost of commodities occasioned by closure of the country’s borders, saying that the closure of the borders was to ensure farmers in Nigeria are prosperous.
Spoke at a town hall meeting in Benin City as part of activities of the ongoing National Festival for Arts and Culture, Osinbajo explained that part of the reason for the border closure was to get attention of neighbouring countries to take more seriously the question of policing the borders.
He said other prosperous nations did not allow any country bring goods into their countries but opted to grow what they eat, noting that smuggling discouraged local production and does not allow Nigeria farmers have access to market.
“Part of the reasons for shutting the border is the smuggling that has been going on. If we continue to allow the Chinese and others to continue to bring in all those things, we will kill farming completely and most of our people will not be employed.
”There may be some pain in other to gain. The countries of the world that are prosperous didn’t allow anybody to bring in anything to their country. They made sure they grew what they eat. I can assure you that very soon you will see a great deal of progress, you will see more of our own commodity coming into the market. If we allow our own people grow these things, our people will prosper. The only way our people can prosper is if we let them use the opportunity that they have such as farming, fishing and others.
”We are going to make sure that commodities are cheaper. We must bear in mind that the reason today some commodities are more expensive is because we stopped smuggling. We have to encourage our local farmers so that our local farmers can prosper,” the Vice President said.
He commended Governor Godwin Obaseki for the vision to seeking to reposition Edo State as a foremost destination for investment and tourism, saying that Edo was blazing in the direction of diversifying the country’s economy and moving the nation in the direction of revenue beyond oil.
“Tourism is one sector which had untold potential for growth, Edo State is blazing the train in this direction. By showcasing its rich heritage, Edo State will attract global attention for all of the right reasons.
“It is apt that the Edo State Government is pursuing a cultural agenda that include the recovery of the lost treasures of the Benin Kingdom from all of the places they were taken to across the world. The invasion of the Benin Kingdom would have ended a lesser civilisation instead the royal dynasty survived and the legacy of Benin endured not only through the lineage of the noble royal houses but also in the evident resilience of the people”, Osinbajo said.
In his remark, Governor Obaseki said his administration was committed to leveraging on the state’s cultural capital to drive investment to the tourism sector, disclosing that tourism was the key pillar of his administration’s agenda and the next level was to translate these cultural assets into a force that attracts international tourists traffic.
”For us, entering the next level means manifesting the greatness of Edo State through tourism as one of the passways of sustaining growth and prosperity in post oil future. We believe that Edo State can serve as a path finder for the nation in the post oil economy. We recognise that culture and tourism are powerful tools for this progress,” he said.

Reality TV star Tacha has cleared air on speculations that she rubbished ace singer Tuface during his visit to the big brother house.
Recall that there were perceptions that the Port Harcourt’s first daughter had snubbed Tuface while other housemates embraced him.
But in an interview with Dotun of CoolFM, Tacha debunked the claims saying it was just a misconception.
According to her, the particular scene can be attributed to moment Big brother called all housemate,
She said her reaction could have come after she thought Biggie wanted to ask them to maintain a particular state.
“I saw a video they said Tacha snubbed Tuface and I was like no … I love Tuface, in the house, we don’t get to see people and when anybody comes to the house, it’s a big deal, we don’t even want you to go”
“I don’t even remember but from the little detail i was getting, you know we do ‘freeze’ in the house especially when there is an event, biggie calls like housemates.”
Reality star, Tacha had an interview session today at Cool FM and she was asked how she felt about her disqualification.
She was asked if her disqualification was an unfair treatment or if she feels she personally contributed to it.
Responding to the question, Tacha said;
”WOW! Such a question! Oh my God! (Laughs) wow wow wowwow uhmmm Biggie’s house Biggie’s rules, everything is at Biggie’s discretion.
Omo at the end of the day everything went fine and good. I had a very great time in the house. It was fun. Interesting and it’s still a learning process“.
Tacha has revealed that the only person she was attracted to while in the BBNaija 2019 Pepper Dem house was Biggie.
The 23-year-old social media influencer popular for her activities on Instagram and BBNaija made this revelation during an interview with Dot2un and Kemi Smallz on a radio show, Midday Oasis.
When asked who she was attracted to during her 89-day stay in the house, Tacha said;
“I was attracted to Biggie. I was attracted to his voice and Biggie once turned me on. When Frodd won the Ultimate Veto Power and it was nomination night, he called Tacha and after calling other nominees, he called Tacha again and when I queried, he said, Tacha, no leave, no transfer and that turned me on. I was like wow, Biggie did that for me.”
Speaking on her stay in the house, Tacha said;
“I’ve learned a lot in the house. Biggie is incredible and I feel it’s a platform everyone should experience if they could. My highlight was going into the house, every process was deliberate.
“I am learning, I am 23, it’s not a reason, but I am learning not to pay attention to things that don’t matter and just walk away. I can be hot-headed… My energy in the house surprises me now, it’s not a good thing, but I’m learning.”
On what she loves about Davido to have gotten the OBO crest in between her boobs, Tacha said the singer’s drive and strength are what she loves and admires.
“Yeah, I love Davido. David was the inspiration behind my having the OBO tattoo. You know David has this drive regardless of everything, he still has that drive and strength and it’s what I admire. I want to be Tacha that the world will know and still act like upcoming,”

Former Lyn Oslo, Chelsea, Middlesbrough and Super Eagles player, John Mikel Obi, has revealed how he would have left the national team in 2013, but finally changed his mind and left six years later.
Mikel Obi, who is Nigeria’s most decorated player, with trophies like the Carling cup, EPL, UEFA champions League and AFCON among his accolades, finally said goodbye to the national team after thirteen years following the Super Eagles third place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Mikel participated in five different Africa Cup of Nations and captained the Super Eagles for a large portion of his career until he hung up his boots for the national team in June 2019, but now plays for Trabzonspor of Turkey.
Mikel, who had a spat with head coach Gernot Rohr during the last AFCON, believes he had to retire to give the young ones a chance and allow himself focus on club football.
”I served the national team for 13 years, most of them captain. In this period, we have achieved significant successes as a team,” Mikel said in an interview with Trabzonspor’s official magazine.
”I first wanted to leave in 2013, but as a result of our negotiations with the authorities, I decided to continue”.
Mikel decided to retire from the national team because he wanted to give the younger players a chance and also focus on his club career.
”We currently have very talented young players. They’re all bright. I think these players can handle the challenges. I had to make room for them.
”Besides, I don’t have many years for football in front of me. I want to focus on my team in the remaining period,” Mikel added.
Mikel played 89 games for Nigeria, making him the country’s third most capped player behind Vincent Enyeama and Joseph Yobo.
