For over 90 years, Trade Unions have played a vital role in safeguarding and advocating for the rights of workers in Tanzania. These unions serve as a crucial link between employees, employers, and the government to ensure improved working conditions and the well-being of all workers. Despite their commendable efforts, it is evident that the hard work of union members has not received the recognition and appreciation it deserves.
In this inaugural episode of Kazi the Podcast, we delve into the origins of Trade Unions, tracing their roots back to Europe and their evolution in Tanzania.

In today's contemporary workplace, the pervasive issue of sexual violence looms ominously over professional settings. This distressing problem encompasses a broad spectrum of unwelcome sexual behaviors, ranging from verbal harassment to outright assault.

On this International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Kazi the Podcast sheds light on this often unspoken yet ever-present menace. We aim to emphasize the importance of open dialogue regarding this issue within workplaces and provide guidance on how to respond if you find yourself confronted by such a situation.
