ARUSHA WAJITOKEZA KUUAGA MWILI WA MSAFIRI MBWAMBO.

• Barabara za fungwa.

• Polisi kutoa sh milioni 10 kwa atakaye fanikisha kukamatwa waliohusika

• Nyerere, alitilia shaka ahadi ya Kamanda Andengenye

• Lema awataka wananchi wasilipe kisasi kwa yeyote kwani kazi ya kisasi ni ya Mungu

• Ndugu wa marehemu waomba kusomeshewa watoto 3 wa marehemu.

UMATI mkubwa wa watu Jumatatu Aprili 30, 2012 ulijitokeza kuuaga mwili wa aliyekuwa Mwenyekiti wa Chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (CHADEMA) kata ya Usa River, Msafiri Mbwambo (38), aliyeuawa kwa kukatwa shingo na watu wasiojulikana usiku wa kuamkia Jumamosi Aprili 28, 2012.

Hili kuhimili wingi wa watu ulipelekea kufungwa kwa baadhi ya barabara za jijini Arusha, huku baadhi ya shughuli zikisimama kwa muda ili kuruhusu watu kutoa heshima zao za mwisho kwa mwili wa marehemu.

Askari wa kikosi cha usalama barabarani, wakiongozwa na Kamanda wa Polisi wa mkoa wa Arusha, Thobias Andengeye, waliongoza msafara wa magari kutoka katika Hospitali ya Mkoa ya Mount Meru hadi nyumbani kwake marehemu eneo la Magadini, Usa River kisha kanisa la Wasabato Liganga ambako ilifanyika ibada na baadaye kusindikiza katika Uwanja wa Ngaresero ambako hotuba na heshima za mwisho zilifanyika.

Viongozi mbalimbali wa CHADEMA na serikali waliohudhuria shughuli hiyo ni pamoja na Mjumbe wa Kamati Kuu ya CHADEMA, Godbless Lema, wabunge Joshua Nassari (Arumeru Mashariki), Vicent Nyerere (Musoma Mjini) na Cecilia Paresso (Viti Maalumu).

Wengine waliohudhuria ni pamoja na Naibu Kamishna wa Polisi Isaya Mngulu, kamanda wa polisi mkoani Arusha, Thobias Andengenye, pamoja na mkuu wa wilaya ya Arumeru, Mercy Silla.

Katibu wa CHADEMA mkoani Kilimanjaro, Basil Lema, alisema umati mkubwa wa watu uliojitokeza kwenye viwanja hivyo unadhihirisha kuwa kifo cha Mbwambo hakikuwa cha kiholela bali cha kupigania haki; hivyo damu yake iliyomwagika itaendelea kulia kwa ajili ya kudai mabadiliko ndani ya taifa hili.

Aliongeza kuwa hata kama jeshi la polisi ambalo wanaamini litatimiza wajibu wake, kama halitawakamata waliohusika na mauaji hayo halitarudisha nyuma moyo na ari ya Watanzania katika harakati za kupigania ukombozi.

Kwa upande wake aliyekuwa mbunge wa Arusha Mjini, Lema, alisema kuwa waliofanya mauaji hayo kama walilenga kuwatisha na kuwaogopesha wananchi kujiunga na harakati za CHADEMA wameshindwa kwani ndiyo kwanza imeongeza vuguvugu la kudai haki.

Alisema kuwa polisi wakiamua kumpata muuaji ni kazi rahisi kwani wauaji walimpigia simu marehemu wakimuita kabla ya kumuua hivyo wanaweza kuwasiliana na kampuni ya simu wakapata taarifa muhimu za kuwatia mkononi wauaji hao.

Lema alisema kuwa marehemu aliwahi kuwaeleza yeye pamoja na Nyerere wakati wa kampeni za ubunge wa Arumeru Mashariki kuwa kuna watu wanamtishia kumuua kutokana na misimamo yake ya kisiasa lakini hawakutilia maanani wakidhani ni vitisho tu lakini anasikitika kuwa wamemuua.

Aliwataka wananchi wasilipe kisasi kwa yeyote kwani kazi ya kisasi ni ya Mungu wao wafunge na kuomba matokeo yataonekana.

Akizungumza kwa niaba ya familia, kaka wa marehemu, John Mbwambo, aliwashukuru wananchi walioungana nao katika msiba huo pamoja na CHADEMA kwa kugharamia msiba huo ambapo alikiomba chama hicho kisaidie kuwasomesha watoto watatu wa marehemu.

Naye mkuu wa wilaya ya Arumeru, Silla, aliungana na viongozi wengine kuifariji familia ya marehemu na CHADEMA kwa kuondokewa na baba na kiongozi huku akiwataka wawe watulivu kipindi hiki jeshi la polisi likiendelea na uchunguzi wake.

Kwa upande wake Kamanda Andengenye alisema kuwa Jeshi la Polisi litatoa zawadi nono ya sh milioni 10 kwa mtu atakayetoa taarifa zitakazofanikisha kukamatwa kwa waliohusika na mauaji hayo huku akiweka wazi kuwa wamekuwa wakifanikiwa katika masuala mengi pale wanapopata ushirikiano toka kwa raia wema.

Marehemu Mbwambo ameacha mjane, Eunice, na watoto watatu, Nazaeli (14), helen (10) na Magreth (6).

Hata hivyo mbunge wa Musoma Mjini, Nyerere, alitilia shaka ahadi ya Kamanda Andengenye akidai kuwa katika bajeti ya Wizara ya Mambo ya Ndani ya Nchi hakuna fungu lililotengwa kwa ajili ya kutoa zawadi kwa wananchi wanaotoa taarifa jambo alilosema kuwa atalifuatilia.

“Mimi ni mkweli sana, mtanisamehe pamoja na ahadi nzuri aliyotoa RPC, mimi sitafuatilia kwake nitapambana na waziri wake kujua kama fedha tunazotenga kwa ajili ya kulinda raia na mali zao zinatumika ipasavyo,” alisema Nyerere.

Mbunge wa Arumeru Mashariki, Nassari, alisema kuwa hafurahishwi na ahadi ya fedha iliyotolewa na jeshi la polisi kwa kile alichosema kuwa anaamini polisi wakiamua kufanya kazi yao wauaji hao wanaweza kupatikana.

Alitolea mfano wa jambazi aliyemuua askari mwishoni mwa mwaka jana na kukamatwa katika kipindi kifupi akitibiwa kwa mganga wa kienyeji, na kusema mazingira ya tukio hilo yalikuwa magumu kuliko hili la kuuawa kwa Mbwambo hivyo akalitaka litumie utaalamu wake kuhakikisha wauaji wanapatikana.

PROFESA SHIVJI; AKOSOA MFUMO WA KUPATA KATIBA MPYA

  • Aushanga ushiriki mkubwa wa wanasiasa wastaafu
  • Ahoji kuendelea kuwapo kwa ibara ya 18 na 21
  • Asema bila ushiriki wa kutosha wa vyombo vya habari hakuna Katiba

MWENYEKITI wa Kigoda cha Mwalimu Nyerere, Profesa Issa Shivji, amesema kuwa Katiba Mpya inayotarajiwa kuundwa inaweza ikawa mbovu kutokana na hatua ya Rais Jakaya Kikwete kuruhusu wanasiasa wengi kuuteka mchakato wa uundwaji wake.

Akizungumza katika mkutano wa wandishi wa habari uliandaliwa na Baraza la Habari Tanzania (MCT) Jumatatu Aprili 30, 2012 jijini Dar es Salaam, Prof. Shivji, alisema hatua hiyo inaweza kuunda Katiba mbovu yenye kulinda maslahi ya kundi moja hasa la wanasiasa.
“Inashangaza mchakato huu wa kutafuta Katiba mpya wameingizwa wanasiasa wastaafu, hawa waliingia baada ya Chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (CHADEMA) kwenda Ikulu na vikafuata vyama vingine ambapo vyote vilipeleka hoja ya kushiriki,” alisema.
Kwa mujibu wa mhadhiri mstaafu huyo wa Chuo Kikuu ch Dar es Salaam, hata kitendo cha kuwapo kwa vifungu kadhaa kama vya ibara ya 18 na 21 vyenye kutoa adhabu ya kifungo jela na faini, vinaweza kuwa kikwazo cha umma wa Watanzania kutoa maoni yao.
Aliongeza kuwa vyombo vya habari havijionyeshi kushiriki katika mchakato huo kwani vimekosa uhuru na haki zao zimewekwa kwapani na serikali, wafanyabiashara, watoa matangazo na wamiliki wake.
Alisisitiza kuwa kama vyombo vya habari havitashiriki au kushirikishwa kikamilifu na kuhamasisha wananchi hakuna Katiba itakayopatikana badala yake tume itajikalia chumbani na kuamua wanachokiona kinawafaa.
Awali Meneja wa Maadili na Usuluhishi kutoka MCT, Alan Lawa, aliwahimiza waandishi kushiriki kikamilifu katika mchakato wa kupata Katiba mpya licha ya kukabiliwa na changamoto mbalimbali zikiwemo maslahi yao kuwa madogo.

COME DECEMBER 2012; MTWARA WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

COMING from Europe on an early morning landing at Dar-es-Salaam will leave you enough time to transfer to the daily Air Tanzania or Precision Air flights which leave later in the morning.

If you are arriving from South Africa then you will be using either SAA or Air-Tanzania to Dar-es-Salaam. In my opinion the latter is probably better.

If, like me, you are sick and tired of crowded diving venues, dicey beach launchings and even dicier landings, plus being pounded through rough seas in a RIB, hanging onto a rope for grim death or yo-yoing in low-viz surge at 20 metres, then let me disclose to you the best-kept secret of the east coast of Africa – the peaceful, clear and calm waters of Mikindani and Mtwara in southern Tanzania.

Mtwara is a southern region of Tanzania which has been underdeveloped for a long time: development was constrained by the lack of highway and energy infrastructures.

The Dar es Salaam-Kibiti-Lindi-Mtwara road has been improved by the completion of the Mkapa Bridge over the Rufiji River. Mnazi Bay gas promises to provide reliable and adequate electricity for powering industrial and commercial activities in the region.

Mtwara is  bordered  with Mozambique to the south is formed by the Ruvuma River. To the west Mtwara is bordered by Ruvuma Region, to the north by Lindi Region, and to the east is the Indian Ocean. The capital is Mtwara.

According to the 2002 Tanzania National Census, the population of the Mtwara Region was 1,128,523.

Having all that in mind the Tanzania government has plan to add value of the region by using The Export Processing Authority (EPZA) which has partnered with the Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) and Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) to establish the Mtwara Freeport Zone by December 2012.

A free port (porto franco) or free zone (zona franca), sometimes also called a bonded area (US: Foreign-Trade Zone) is a port, port area or other area with relaxed jurisdiction with respect to the country of location. Free economic zones may also be called free ports.

Most commonly a free port is a special customs area or small customs territory with favorable customs regulations (or no customs duties and controls for transshipment).

Earlier in history, some free ports like Hong Kong enjoyed political autonomy. Many international airports have free ports, though they tend to be called customs areas, customs zones, or international zones.

“We are in final stages of having the Mtwara Freeport Zone operational,” EPZA Development Director Zawadia Nanyaro said in Dar es Salaam at the weekend. He noted that the site for the Freeport Zone had already been earmarked.

A Freeport must offer a series of advantage in order to attract investors. Financial incentives are complementary to other advantages such as transport services but also commercial opportunities. 

The use of Free Trade zone or Freeports can facilitate the marketing and distribution of products for international companies.

The envisaged zone is expected to serve oil exploration and gas extraction activities in the region.

Mtwara Region is endowed with a huge amount of gas and oil.

The presence of oil and gas companies creates opportunities for investors to set up petrochemical processing and allied industries in the region. 

Investors are already flocking to the southern region to invest in manufacturing plants—cement and fertilisers in particular.

Deep sea exploration is in progress by multinational companies—Petrobras, British Gas and Orphir.

One of its advantage is that Goods may be received in zones without formal customs entry, payment of duties or furnishing of a bond. 

All finished goods, machinery, equipment and materials imported into a Freeport zone are exempted from customs duty, import duty and sales tax.

The effort to minimize bureaucracy and maximize efficiency in clearing goods (often a nightmare for international traders) has led to the innovative single goods-in-goods-out document also caleed the “Freeport Bill” that the Mtwara Freeport Authority should develop as one of the incentives a Freeport lincence holder should enjoys.

“Having a special centre to supply materials and services is inevitable if these (exploration) companies have to operate efficiently,” Nanyaro said.

She said the envisaged Freeport Zone was specific for foreign companies that supplied materials and provided services to exploration firms that had to invest over US$1 billion (about 1.6tn/-) with over 5,000 direct employment opportunities for Tanzanians.

Sometimes the country where the Freeport is located has signed free trade agreements with neighboring countries.

According to the legislation of the zone, the advantages provided by the free trade agreement may be extended to the goods which transit through the Freeport.

As for Tanzania, the country is a member of the Common Market for Southern and Eastern Africa (COMESA).

The main advantages conferred by such membership are the reduced duties payable on imports from member countries, and the central bank clearing house system, which allows settlement of trade bills without the need to use scarce hard currency resources.

The reduction in duty currently stands at 60 per cent. One of the clauses of the Treaty of the COMESA provides for the gradual reduction of customs duties with a view to their complete elimination by the year 2020.

EPZA has since its inception about six years ago been striving to invite investors in its designated areas for investment under special economic zones and export processing zones.

Statistics show that the authority has attracted US$700 million (over 1tn/-) worth of investments that have created over 14,000 direct jobs with US$450 million (over 700bn/-) exports.

The EPZA was established by the Export Processing Zones Act, 2002, which provides for establishment of export investments in the designated zones.

Its objectives are to attract and encourage transfer of new technology, attract and promote investment for export led industrialisation, create and expand foreign exchange earnings and increase employment opportunities and development of skilled labour.

WAS OUR MINISTER, MAIGE IN THE RIGHT COURSE OF TANZANIA ULTIMATE GOAL?

Natural Resources and Tourism minister Ezekiel Maige

In the Arusha Manifesto of 1961, Tanzania’s first President, Julius Nyerere, pledged to preserve this precious resource, not only for the benefit of the country’s “children’s grandchildren” but also for the rest of the world (1968). It is no wonder then that 25 per cent of its landmass comprises national parks, game conservation areas, or game reserves.

On April 23, 2011 the Natural Resources and Tourism minister Ezekiel Maige was accused over what Members of Parliament described as deliberate mishandling of procedures governing trapping and shipping of live wildlife abroad.

The legislators also attack the minister of deliberate mishandling of the allocation of hunting blocks to hunting companies.

Unlike Kenya, which has banned hunting since 1975, Tanzania has sought to exploit these resources by pursuing a policy of consumptive utilization, whereby traditional and tourist hunting are encouraged. With such resources at its disposal, the country has the potential both to finance wildlife conservation efforts through this strategy and to earn foreign exchange that could play a vital role in improving the lives of its citizens, particularly in the rural areas where the major game reserves are located. 

However, some of government official have prevented the country from reaping the potential benefits of this resources.

Committee Chairman for Parliamentary Standing Committee on Lands, Natural resources and Environment Mr. James Lembeli

The principal legislation governing wildlife utilization in Tanzania is the Wildlife Conservation Act of 1974. This Act vests the Director of Wildlife with powers to oversee the overall management of wildlife in the country. The Director is in charge of game reserves, game conservation areas, and open lands, while the Tanzania National Parks Authority (TANAPA) is in charge of the national parks. (This last provision is made under the National Parks Ordinance, Cap. 389.)

The Director is empowered to refuse, in the public interest, to issue licences and certificates, or to grant permission to any person. The Director also has the power to cancel any licence, permission, or permit. Any person dissatisfied with the decision of the Director may appeal to the Minister, whose decision on such an appeal is final and conclusive (Section 55(2)). Finally, the Director is given prosecutorial powers to try offenses under the Act (Section 81).

The Minister is the second layer of authority established by the Wildlife Conservation Act, 1974. The President is the third layer of authority under the Act. He has the power to establish game reserves (Section 5); modify restrictions imposed on hunting of animals in game reserves, game-controlled areas, and partial game reserves (Section 19); impose a ban on any category of persons from being given a game licence (Section 22)

Lembeli urged the government to hold the minister accountable for creating what he described as ‘corrupt environment’ around the two issues.

This is the second time in less than five months that minister Maige has come under fire in Parliament over more or less the same issues.

Last November the minister was put on the spot by MPs over reports that about 116 live wild animals were caught from their natural habitat on September 2010 and shipped to an unknown foreign land.

The case over the matter still continues in court.

In the report tabled in Parliament on April 23, 2012 Mr. Lembeli said his committee conducted a special investigation on how two giraffes were trapped and shipped off to foreign lands under a permit issued by the ministry on April 29, 2011, to a hunting company called Jungle International Limited.

Pinpointing the deliberate anomalies surrounding the issuance of the permit, Lembeli said it was in the form of a letter that however, did not cite reference to any application letter requesting for the said wild animals.

Even when the committee went to the ministry requesting for a copy of the application letter written by Jungle International Limited, no such letter was forthcoming, said Lembeli.

The second anomaly involved the destination of the captured animals. Lembeli said while investigations showed the animals were destined for a special Zoo known as Savannah Plain International School located in Shinyanga, the letter of endorsement from the ministry showed the wildlife animals were to be shipped off to foreign lands.

The third anomaly, according to Lembeli, surrounded the areas where the wild animals were to be captured. He said while the regulations ordered the permit to indicate only one district, from which the animals are to be captured, the permit from the ministry allowed the applicant to trap the animals from Longido, Simanjiro and Monduli districts.

Furthermore, Jungle International Limited did not avail some important documents to substantiate its intent to ship the animals outside the country as was required. Such documents include airway bills and customs stamp.

While the capture of wild animals such as giraffes was supposed to be carried out under a special permit issued by the Director of Wildlife Department, the permit in this case was issued by the Former Permanent Secretary of the Ministry Ladislaus Komba and signed by Senior Wildlife Officer identified as Mohammed Madehele.

Lembeli said his committee learnt that Jungle International Limited was not a legal entity as documents with Business, Registration and Licensing Authority (BRELA) showed that it changed its status and responsibilities on December 28, 2001 into Jungle Auctioneers and Brokers Company, implying that the ministry issued the permit to a non-existent company.

Lembeli said the committee on further investigation noted that on July 19, 2010 the ministry issued a permit No GD/R.20/2/87 dated January 27, 2010, signed by a person identified as B.M.C.M Midala on behalf of the permanent secretary, which identified Karachi City, Pakistan as the recipient of two giraffes, two hippos, two greater kudus and four elands.

On March 23, 2009 the Wildlife Department wrote Karachi City Executive Director a letter, reference No.GD/R.40/20/Vol.II/8 granting it permission to trap four female elephants, but Lembeli said investigations by the committee revealed that there was no evidence to prove that the animals were shipped to the Asian city or documents from Karachi to substantiate that it received the animals.

According to Lembeli, the ministry should have made efforts to satisfy itself that the four female elephants allegedly taken to the Asian city had really arrived there before issuing another permit.

The committee also noted that a person identified as Kamarani Ahmad, a Pakistani national owns legal trapper card No.0016929, against the Wildlife Conservation Act, 2009 that prohibits foreigners from owning such cards.

In the report, Lembeli told MPs that his committee noted serious shortcomings in distribution of hunting blocks to companies for the 2013-2018 hunting season.

He said hunting companies such as Said Kawawa and Malagarasi were awarded First and Second Class hunting blocks while the ministerial advisory committee wanted the minister not to award the blocks to the two companies.

Lembeli said the Government Notice (GN) dated September 7, 2011 on allocation of hunting blocks to 60 companies did not show the blocks awarded to the two companies mentioned above.

He said Section 11 of the Wildlife Conservation Act, 2009 states that: “the minister shall ensure that any modality or system used in allocation of hunting blocks is transparent and is in line with the principles of good governance”.

He said the section above was not adhered to in the hunting blocks allocation process as the GN did not explicitly and openly state which hunting company was awarded which hunting blocks.

Due to such gross irresponsibility, Lembeli called upon the government to take disciplinary measures against the current Permanent Secretary, Dr Erasmus Tarimo, Mohammed Madehele, B.C.M.C Madala and other ministry officials involved.

Responding, minister Maige defended himself saying he did not receive the committee’s report that investigated the scams in the ministry, including exportation of live animals outside the country.

“I just got the parliamentary committee’s report ten minutes before it was presented by its chairman, James Lembeli, in this House. What can I do under such circumstances?” he questioned.

He accused the parliamentary committee of being one-sided, in the course of investigation, taking views from hunting companies and associations and compiling a report, without cross-checking the facts with the minister and his team.

The current system by which the Director of Wildlife assisted by minister, controls the allocation of hunting blocks has failed miserably: Poaching has been on the rise, while contiguous communities have been excluded. While recognizing that that the Wildlife Department has a contribution to make in wildlife management.

Limiting the discretionary power that the Director of Wildlife currently enjoys, and ensuring fairness, transparency, and accountability, will remedy one of the industry’s most serious and long-standing problems. Tanzania has an opportunity to pioneer a model of wildlife utilization capable of harmonizing revenue, equity, and conservation goals.

NINI KILICHOMO KWENYE RIPOTI YA CAG .

Ludovick Utouh

SIKU chache baada ya Kamati Kuu (CC) ya Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM), kubariki uamuzi wa Rais Jakaya Kikwete wa kulisuka upya Baraza la Mawaziri kwa kuwaondoa waliotajwa katika Ripoti ya Mdhibiti na Mkaguzi Mkuu wa Hesabu za Serikali (CAG), mawaziri wanaotakiwa kujiuzulu wamekataa kuchukua hatua hiyo.

Kwa zaidi ya wiki mbili sasa, kumekuwa na shinikizo la kutaka mawaziri wanane wajiuzulu nyadhifa zao kutokana na wizara zao kutajwa na CAG kwamba zimehusika na ufisadi huku wengine wakitajwa moja kwa moja kufanya uamuzi wenye maslahi binafsi.

Wengi wetu tumekuwa tukifwatilia mnyukano huo ndani na nje ya bungeni baina ya wabunge na Serikali pamoja na mawaziri hao kuhusu ubadhilifu wa fedha za walipa kodi.

Katika ripoti hiyo ambayo wengi awajaiona na M2S kupata nakala zake imeonyesha mapungufu mengi kama mishahara hewa yenye thamani ya sh583.2 milioni. Vilevile matumizi ambayo serikali imeyafanya bila kuidhinishwa na bunge.

Baadhi ya Matumizi ambayo hayakuidhinishwa ni matumizi ya Sh21.63 bilioni zilizotumika kuendesha mfuko wa kukwamua wananchi kiuchumi maarufu kama ‘mabilioni ya JK’.

Vile vile ripoti hiyo imeonyesha udanganyifu na ukwepaji kodi uliyoisababishia hasara Serikali ya sh15.4 Bilioni na Dola 2.6 milioni za Marekani, kiasi ambacho ni kikubwa.

Kutokana na taarifa hiyo Wananchi na baadhi ya wabunge wametaka wahusika wawajibishwe, zifwatazo ni baadhi ya tuhuma zinazo wakabili mawaziri pamoja na baadhi ya manaibu wao.

 

Mustapha Mkulo – Waziri wa Fedha na Uchumi.

Shutuma zinazo mkabili Waziri wa Fedha na Uchumi, Mustafa Mkulo ni kuuzwa kwa kiwanja cha Shirika Hodhi la Mali za Serikali (CHC) kwa kampuni ya Mohamedi Enterprises Tanzania Ltd kinyume cha taratibu.

Ukaguzi  wa CAG unadai kuwa Ofisi ya Msajili wa Hazina na Wizara ya Fedha zilihusika moja kwa moja katika uuzwaji wa Kiwanja Na.10 kilichopo kando ya Barabara ya Nyerere kilichouzwa kwa Kampuni ya Mohamed Enterprises Tanzania Ltd bila kuishirikisha Bodi ya Wakurugenzi ya Shirika Hodhi la Mali za Serikali (CHC). 

Vilevile, CAG anadai kuwepo kwa utata katika hati ya madai ya Sh 2.4 bilioni kutoka katika Kampuni ya DRTC kama gharama za ulinzi na tozo la matumizi ya barabara ya kuingia kwenye Kiwanja Na.192 kando ya Barabara ya Nyerere. 

Ripoti hiyo vilevile inadai mapungufu yalionekana pia kwenye uuzwaji wa jengo la Kampuni ya Tanzania Motors (TMC) lililopo kiwanja Na.24 kilichopo kando ya Barabara ya Ali Hassani Mwinyi.  

Pia, Menejimenti ya CHC haikuwa makini kwenye uuzaji wa kiwanja Na. 33 kilichopo katika eneo la viwanda la Chang’ombe kwa Kampuni ya Maungu Seed.

 

Dk Hadji Mponda – Waziri wa Afya na Ustawi wa Jamii.

Kadhia inayo ikabili wizara hii ya Afya na Ustawi wa Jamii ni shutuma juu ya Bohari ya Madawa (MSD) ambapo ukaguzi maalumu wa MSD uliofanyika ulibaini kuwapo tofauti ya Sh 658.9 milioni ikiwa ni pungufu ya kiasi ambacho kilipokelewa na kuripotiwa na Wizara ya Afya na Ustawi wa Jamii kwenda MSD.

Pia ripoti imeonyesha kulikuwa na kiasi cha Sh100 milioni kilichopokelewa na MSD kutoka Wizara ya Afya na kikatumiwa na MSD bila kuwepo na mchanganuo wa matumizi.

Katika ripoti hiyo kuna kiasi cha Sh 4.5 bilioni zilizotoka Hazina kwenda Wizara ya Afya na Ustawi wa Jamii kwa ajili ya kununua dawa na vifaa vya hospitali, lakini kiasi cha Sh 4.344 bilioni tu ndicho kilichopokelewa na MSD ikiacha Sh 196 milioni bila kuwepo na ushahidi wa kupokelewa na MSD kutoka Wizara ya Afya.

Madai mengine ni kuwa, baadhi ya vifaa vinavyotolewa na MSD vimekuwa havina viwango vinavyostahili, kwa mfano vifaa vya kupima shinikizo la damu na machela za kubebea wagonjwa zilizotolewa kwa mganga mmoja wa wilaya (DMO), viliharibika kabla ya muda uliokusudiwa. 

Utata mwingine ni juu ya matumizi ya jumla ya Sh1.10 bilioni kwa ajili maonyesho ya Nane nane, fedha ambazo hazikuwamo kwenye bajeti iliyopitishwa na Bunge.

 

Omar Nundu – Waziri wa Uchukuzi.

Tatizo katika wizara hii ni tuhuma dhidi ya Shirika la Ndege Tanzania (ATCL) na mradi wa upanuzi wa Bandari ya Dar es Salaam. 

CAG katika ukaguzi wake inadai Shirika la Ndege Tanzania limekuwa likijiendesha bila Bodi ya Wakurugenzi kwa muda mrefu jambo ambalo limesababisha kudorora kwa shughuli za shirika hilo.  

Sakata jingine ni la mkataba kati ya ATCL na Shirika la Ndege la Afrika Kusini uliovunjika kutokana na sababu mbalimbali za kiutendaji. 

Baada ya kuvunjika kwa mkataba huo Septemba 2006, Shirika la Ndege Tanzania lilisaini mkataba mwingine wa makubaliano na Kampuni ya China Sonangol International Holdings Limited. 

Kampuni hii ilileta ndege mbili chakavu ambazo zilikuwa zikitumiwa na shirika jingine kinyume na makubaliano. Ndege zilizoletwa ni aina ya Bombardier Dash 8-Q400s ambazo zilikuwa zimekwishatumiwa na mashirika mengine ya ndege na nyingine aina ya Airbus A320 ambayo ilikuwa na umri wa miaka 10 hadi kufikia mwaka, 2007.

Januari 2009 ndege aina ya Airbus A320 ilipaswa ipelekwe kwenye matengenezo makubwa yanayofanyika kila baada ya miaka minne hadi mitano. 

Julai, 2009 ndege hii ilirudishwa kwa mwenyewe. Hata hivyo, wakati akijibu majumuisho ya hoja mbalimbali zilizotolewa na wabunge pamoja na mawaziri, Mwenyekiti Kamati ya Bunge za Mashirika ya Umma (POAC), Zitto Kabwe alisema taarifa aliyonayo ni kwamba kampuni hiyo iliyoikodishia ndege ATCL imepewa zabuni ya kuendesha Bandari ya Mtwara.  

Mamlaka ya Bandari Tanzania (TPA) Sakata jingine ni usimamizi mbaya wa Mkataba wa Ujenzi Katika Mamlaka ya Bandari Tanzania (TPA).  

TPA iliingia katika mkataba na kampuni ya AF MULT-Con LTD kujenga nyumba ya makazi ya msimamizi mkuu wa Bandari ya Tanga kwa gharama ya Sh 500 milioni. 

Taratibu za zabuni na maridhiano ya mkataba huo yalihakikiwa na hapakuwa na dosari. Hata hivyo, ilibainika udhaifu wa usimamizi na kutotekelezwa kwa masharti ya mkataba yalisababisha mradi kushindwa kuendelea licha ya Mkandarasi kulipwa asilimia 20 ya bei ya mkataba yaani Sh100 milioni.

Katika sakata jingine lililosababishwa na usitishwaji wa mkataba ulipelekea malipo batili. wakati wa ukaguzi wa taarifa ya fedha za TPA za mwaka wa fedha 2010/2011 ilibainika  kwamba mamlaka hiyo iliingia katika mkataba wa ujenzi wa ukuta wa uzio katika Bandari ya Mtwara na Kampuni ya Chibeshi Contruction.

Mkataba huo ambao uligharimu shirika Jumla ya Sh 679.8 milioni ulisainiwa Aprili, 14 2009 na kukubaliana kuwa utakamilika baada ya wiki 26 kuanzia tarehe ya kusaini mkataba.  

Hata hivyo, kabla ya mkandarasi kuanza kazi, mamlaka iliamua kuvunja mkataba kwa madai kuwa hapakuwa na mgao wa fedha kwa ajili ya shughuli hiyo.  

Usimamizi na uamuzi wa kuvunja mkataba uliifanya Mamlaka kulipishwa faini ya Sh92.5 milioni na mkandarasi. Kanuni ya Na. 46 (5) na (6) GN 97 ya mwaka 2005 inaeleza bayana kwamba, gharama za mahitaji ya manunuzi ni lazima zikadiriwe na kulinganishwa na uwezekano wa upatikanaji wa fedha ili kuweka vipaumbele katika manunuzi muhimu.

Kanuni ambayo haikuzingatiwa na uongozi wa mamlaka na hivyo kutoa nafasi kwa mkandarasi kulipwa tozo ya Sh92.5 milioni.

Katika sakata lingine ripoti inasema kuwa kutolipwa kwa tozo ya fidia za uvunjifu wa mikataba kati ya TPA na Kampuni ya WIA ni sawa na mamlaka kuingia  mkataba wa kubuni au kusimika.

Mkataba huu ulikuwa kwa ajili ya kipindi cha miezi mitatu kuanzia Julai 2010 hadi Oktoba 2010, lakini haukuweza kukamilika kwa muda wa kipindi cha mkataba hivyo kupelekea mamlaka kumuongezea mkandarasi muda hadi Februari, 2011.

Licha ya mkandarasi kuongezwa muda, hakuweza kukamilisha kazi aliyopewa.  Kutokana na upungufu huo mkandarasi alitakiwa ailipe mamlaka fidia ya ucheleweshaji ya asilimia 10 ya bei ya mkataba Dola za Kimarekani elfu 95.3 fedha ambazo hazikulipwa kwa sababu ambazo hazikuwekwa bayana.

 

Ezekiel Maige – Waziri wa Maliasili na Utalii

Kadhia inayoikabili wizara hii ni baada ya ripoti ya CAG kuonyesha kuwa Wizara ilipoteza Sh874,853,564 baada ya kufanya maamuzi ya upendeleo ya kutoa kiwango cha chini cha mrabaha kwa mazao ya misitu. 

Ukaguzi wa hesabu za Shirika la Hifadhi ya Taifa Tanzania (TANAPA) umeonyesha kuwa Shirika liliingia mkataba tata na kampuni ya CATS Tanzania LTD unaohusiana na matengenezo ya kawaida, ufungaji wa vifaa vya mawasiliano na vifaa vingine katika mkataba wa jumla ya dola za Kimarekani milioni moja. 

 

Dk Cyril Chami 

Waziri wa Viwanda na Biashara, Dk Chami anakabiliwa na kashfa ya ukaguzi wa magari ya wakala wa Shirika la Vwango Tanzania (TBS).

Kamati ya Bunge ya Mashirika ya Umma ilipendekeza kuwajibishwa kwa afisa masuhuli wa wizara ya viwanda na biashara kwa kuisababishia serikali hasara ya dola  18,343,540 za Marekani ambazo ni karibu Sh30 bilioni.  

Kamati ya Bunge pia inasema kuwa Kamapuni wakala wa kukagua magari wa TBS zilizopo nje ya nchi ni feki na kwamba wamiliki wake ni watanzania waliop nchini. 

Alisema pia imegundua kuwa Serikali inatumia fedha nyingi kwa ajili ya kukodi majengo ya wizara na kusisitiza kuwa wizara moja inaweza kulipa kodi ya Sh485 milioni. 


William Ngeleja 

Waziri wa Nishati na Madini, William Ngeleja ataachia ngazi baada ya CAG kubaini kuwa Shirika la Umeme Tanzania (Tanesco) kwa mwaka mmoja wa fedha linafanya manunuzi yenye thamani kati ya Sh300 bilioni hadi Sh600 bilioni.

Kwa mwaka wa fedha 2009/2010, Tanesco  ililitumia 1.8 bilioni ukilinganisha na Sh65 Milioni zilizokuwa zimepangwa katika bajeti ya ukarabati wa gati mojawapo katika kituo cha bwawa la Mtera.    

Pia Ngeleja anatuhumiwa Wizara ya Nishati na Madini chini yake iliingia mikataba ya madini isiyokuwa na tija  kwa taifa.

  

George Mkuchika  

Waziri wa Nchi Ofisi ya Waziri Mkuu, Tawala za Mikoa na Serikali za Mitaa (TAMISEMI), George Mkuchika naye ataachia ngazi  baada ya ripoti ya Kamati ya Kudumu ya Bunge ya Hesabu za Serikali za Mitaa (LAAC) kubaini mtandao mkubwa wa wezi wa mali za umma.

MEI MOSI HII, INATAKIWA KUWEKA MKAKATI WA KUBORESHA MAISHA

Jumanne Aprili 1, 2012 ni sherehe ya wafanyakazi (MEI Mosi) duniani ambapo Tanzania inaungana na nchi nyingine takribani 80 duniani kusherehekea siku hiyo.

Sikukuu ya mwaka huu, inayofanyika kitaifa Tanga kwa kuratibiwa na Chama cha Wafanyakazi Mashambani (TPAWU), inatazamiwa na wafanyakazi wengi nchini kuwa itatoa majibu ya mkakati wa Serikali katika kuboresha maisha yao. 

Watanzania wanamtazamia Rais Jakaya Kikwete ambaye ndiye mgeni rasmi katika maadhimisho hayo kitaifa, atategua kitendawili cha namna gani ataweka mkakati wa kuboresha maisha ya wafanyakazi. 

Naibu Katibu Mkuu wa Shirikisho la Vyama Huru vya Wafanyakazi Tanzania (Tucta), Hezron Kaaya, amesema kaulimbiu ya mwaka huu ni ‘Mishahara duni, kodi kubwa, mfumuko wa bei ni pigo kwa wafanyakazi’. 

Kaulimbiu hiyo inatilia mkazo na kuikumbusha Serikali kutekeleza mapendekezo ya vyama vya wafanyakazi ya kupandisha mishahara ya wafanyakazi hadi Sh 315,000 kwa mwezi. 

Vyama vya wafanyakazi kikiwemo Chama cha Wafanyakazi wa Serikali Kuu na Afya (TUGHE), Chama cha Wafanyakazi wa Serikali za Mitaa (TALGWU), Chama cha Walimu Tanzania (CWT) na Chama cha Wafanyakazi wa Taasisi za Elimu ya Juu, Sayansi, Teknolojia, Utafiti, Habari na Ufundi Stadi (RAAWU) vimekuwa mstari wa mbele kuisihi Serikali iboreshe maisha ya watumishi wake. 

Wafanyakazi wamekuwa wakiililia Serikali kuwa mishahara ni midogo, pamoja na bidhaa mbalimbali kupanda bei, hivyo hapana budi Serikali iongeze mishahara ili wafanyakazi wamudu kuendesha maisha yao. 

Hivyo Mei Mosi hii, inatakiwa kuweka mkakati wa kuboresha maisha kwa kupandisha mishahara kwa kiwango fulani, hakika wananchi watajenga imani nayo.

SOFT WORKLOAD FOR SIMBA TO CONTINENTAL CAF LEAGUES

SIMBA LINE UP AGAINST Al AHLY SHANDY

Last weekend victory has left Simba to have a relatively soft workload as they travel to Shandy in a fortnight for the return leg tie of the last 16.

Three magnificent goals in the last 24 minutes completely overwhelmed visiting Al Ahly Shandy at a packed National Stadium in Dar es Salaam yesterday as Simba edge closer to the last eight berth of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Both Shandy and Simba players launched several attacks but the later had a lion share in the final ten minutes of the first half.

Patrick Mafisango failed to put Simba ahead eight minutes to the half time mark after Al Shandy goalkeeper Abdulraham Ali saved his weak shot.

The penalty decision was taken by the Swaziland referee after Shandy goalkeeper brought down striker Emmanuel Okwi who was on his way to score after 37 minutes.

The teams progressed into the dressing rooms while tied goalless as home fans remained patient for the second half.

Haruna Moshi combined well with Felix Sunzu to put Simba ahead after 66 minutes taking full advantage of Shandy’s defensive mix up.

Mafisango who missed crucial first half penalty rectified his mistakes when he concluded a superb job by Okwi and tap in the second goal for Simba after 78 minutes.

Okwi had dissected the entire Shandy defence before releasing the lethal pass to the scorer and send wild celebrations to fans on the stands if the packed Stadium.

Okwi hammered the final nail in the Shandy’s coffin as they ended the first leg with excessive frustration. The Sudanese have a tall order despite playing with full home ground advantage during the return leg.

Simba dispatched Rwanda’s Kiyovu Sport by 3-2 goal aggregates during the opening round before sending packing Algeria’s Entente Setif by 4-3 goals aggregates three weeks ago.

Should Simba advance to the last eight it will be their second appearance in continental CAF leagues since 2003 when they stormed into another version of the CAF leagues, the Champions.

Former Prime Minister Fredrick Sumaye was the guest of honour who also blessed Simba victories during their CAF Cup campaign in 1993.

Line-ups:

Simba:

Juma Kaseja, Nassor Masoud, Amir Maftah, Shomari Kapombe, Kelvin Yondani, Patrick Mafisango, Uhuru Suleiman/Salum Machaku, Mwinyi Kazimoto, Emmanue Okwi, Haruna Moshi and Felix Sunzu.

Al Ahly Shandy:

Abdulraham Ali, Nassor Yakoub, Sadam Aboutarik, Nadir El Tawoom, Zacharia Nassor, Mahmood Bashir/Farouk Mugahed, Razak Yakoob, Isaac Malik, Fareed Mohamed, Basir Obamba and Fares Abdallah.
