ZANZIBAR KUTOA ADHABU YA KIFO KAMA CHINA KWA WIZI MKUBWA KAMA HUU WA ESCROW!


WANANCHI BARA WANASIKITIKA KWA UNYONGE KABISA KWA MAISHA YA RUSHWA NA WIZI YANAYOENDELEA NCHINI.
SIKILIZA AUDIO YA HAPA JUU ILI UJUE TUTAELEKEA WAPI KAMA TAIFA LITAKUWA BILA YA ADHABU KALI YA KIFO KWA RUSHWA NA WIZI MKUBWA KAMA HUU WA ESCROW!

Above is the Zanzibar's House of Representatives - death penalty for high-end corruption soon to be introduced in the House as a private motion, if members of the House of Representatives will listen to the wishes of their voters.

Baadhi ya Wazanzibari wanataka kuwashinikiza wajumbe wao wa Baraza La Wawakilishi mapema baada ya sherehe za mwaka mpya kumalizika kuandaa mswada ambao utatoa adhabu ya kifo kwa wizi mkubwa kama huu uliotokea kwenye Akaunti ya Escrow ya Tegeta huko Bara.

Hayo yanazungumzwa na baadhi ya Wazanzibari ambao wamechukia sana juu ya rushwa na wizi unaotokea nchini mara kwa mara na kuwanyima wananchi uwezo wa kujiendeleza kimaisha au kukwamisha miradi ya maendeleo nchini.

Mswada huu unaopendekezwa na wananchi unakuja baada ya wizi mkubwa kufanyika huko Tanzania Bara, na kama utakubalika kuwa sharia, itakuwa imepatikana njia madhubuti ya kuzuwia rushwa na wizi nchini. 

Haijulikani ni wananchi gani hao wenye fikra na nia ya kuwaeleza wajumbe wao wa Baraza La Wawakilishi kuchukuwa hatua hio ya kutengeneza mswada kama huo, japokuwa inajulikana wazi kuwa wanachama wa vyama vyote vya Visiwani wamechoshwa na wizi kama huu unaotokea nchini.

Hii hatua ya wananchi inakuja baada ya kuonekana kuwa Rais Kikwete analegalega na kupatwa kigugumizi juu ya hatua madhubuti za kuchukuwa ili kukata kwa mara moja maini ya wezi na wala rushwa nchini. 

Wengi wanaona kuwa wezi na wala rushwa nchini wanapewa nguvu na kuwa Jumaatatu (Dec 22, 2014) wataendelea kulindwa, vyenginevyo Prof Tibaijuka asingelikuwa na jeuri ya kusema hadharani kuwa hatojiuzulu kama angejua wembe mkali upo njiani unakuja - wakati yeye amekamatwa red-handed na bilioni 1.6 za wanyonge na maskini wa nchi hii. Kwa vyovyote vile, Prof Tibaijuka atalindwa na kuachwa huru na labda kubadilishwa wizara au kupumzishwa kwa muda, kabla hajapewa cheo chengine ili aje kutuibia tena zaidi ya bilioni 1.6 za hivi sasa chini ya pazia lile lile jekundu la 'donation'.

Mswada huu wa adhabu ya kifo kama ukipita kwenye Baraza La Wawakilishi na kuwa sharia, basi Zanzibar itakuwa sawasawa na China ambako walarushwa hukumbana na adhabu ya kifo au kifungo cha maisha. Kwa njia hii Wachina wameweza kuidhibiti rushwa na wizi nchini mwao, japokuwa kero hizi bado zipo nchini China lakini kwa kiwango kidogo sana.

Jitihada ziligonga ukuta za kumtafuta Speaker wa Baraza La Wawakilishi ili kumuuliza kama ukipelekwa mswada wa aina hio kwenye Baraza La Wawakilishi kama itawezekana Baraza kuushughulikia.

Zanzibar Ni Kwetu inawaunga mkono wananchi hao wenye nia hio na ipo pamoja nao bega kwa bega kwa njia yoyote ile, ili Taifa letu liweze kuiangamiza rushwa na wizi nchini kwetu.

Escrow account scandal: Prof Tibaijuka rock-solid

19th December 2014

Lands, Housing and Human Settlements Development Minister Prof Anna Tibaijuka
Despite mounting pressures from the general public wanting her to resign over involvement in the Tegeta escrow account, Lands, Housing and Human Settlements Development Minister Prof Anna Tibaijuka has once again denied involvement in it and insisted that she will not resign.

The Muleba-South MP maintained yesterday that her resignation would construed as  ‘typical fear’ and said the Head of State would not buy such an idea.

Prof Tibaijuka is among the top government officials to have been embattled and called to resign for being implicated in the controversial withdrawal of 302bn/- from the Tegeta escrow account in the Bank of Tanzania (BoT).

Others who were requested to resign according to the recent resolution reached by the parliament are Energy and Mineral’s Minister, Prof Sospeter Muhongo and his Permanent Secretary Eliakim Maswi together with Attorney General, Justice Fredrick Werema who had already stepped down.

While others are charged to have facilitated the withdrawal of the tax payers’ monies, Prof Tibaijuka had pocketed 1.617bn/- generated in the illegal acquisition of the Independent Power Tanzania Limited (IPTL).

The money she received was later described as being transformed into legitimate money, but acquired contrary with the national Anti-Money Laundering Act, 2006.

Addressing a news conference in Dar es Salaam, two-days after the Attorney General’s resignation, the minister made it clear that she was not involved in anyway in the scandal and therefore no need for her to relinquish her ministerial post.

Her announcement comes amid eagerly awaited decision by President Kikwete on the Tegeta escrow account anytime this week.

Prof Tibaijuka has defended herself that the money she received from a famous energy controversial IPTL shareholder and businessman James Rugemalira had no connection with the hotly-debated scandal.

She confirmed receiving the money but, was assured that it was clean and safe money. According to her the money she received was based on donation to cover a debt that her school owed to a financial institution –Bank M.

In additional she says, since her school which is located in Kibamba on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam City was established, she had received several donations of similar nature and that one had ever questioned their origins.

The National Assembly had late last month resolved that appropriate disciplinary and other measures be taken against Werema, Prof Muhongo, Maswi and the Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco) board of directors.

Others lined-up for similar retribution included Prof Tibaijuala, and some Chairmen of the parliamentary standing committees who were also associated in the pocketing millions of shillings from the well-known businessman, Rugemalira.

IPTL wants High Court to order parliamentary resolutions on escrow account scandal shelved

19th December 2014


Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda.
Independent Power Tanzania Limited (IPTL), Pan African Power and Harbinder Singh Sethi have now sought  High Court to issue a certificate of urgency to prevent the implementation of eight Parliament resolutions on the Bank of Tanzania Escrow Account Saga that has so far seen the resignation of the Attorney General, Fredric Werema.

The resolutions include that key government officials who facilitated the withdrawal of the monies from the account be removed from their respective positions. The removal of key officials to include those who received the monies under dubious circumstances.

Also  the appointing authority, the President, to remove minister for Energy and Minerals Prof Sospeter Muhongo and Permanent Secretary Eliachim Maswi, Attorney General Frederick Werema and the Minister for Lands and Human Settlements Development Prof Anna Tibaijuka.

Also in the resolutions, the legislature asked the government to dissolve the board of directors of the Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco) and other more.

Harbinder Singh Sethi who is the owner of both IPTL and PAP yesterday filed case No. 59/2014 at the High Court Dar es Salaam zone against Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda, Speaker of the Parliament and Attorney General whose position is vacant and the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB).

Three firms, Bulwark Associates Advocates, Aslay Attorneys and Marando, Mnyele & Company represented IPTL and its subsidiaries in the said case.

The plaintiffs are against the implementation of the Parliament resolutions, claiming that what the Parliament did was  against the constitution and that Kigoma North Member of Parliament, Zitto Kabwe and his counterpart David Kafulira have a case to answer in connection with the saga.

It is claimed that the resolutions are aimed at bringing confusion among the three arms of the government and that the resolutions are biased.

The plaintiff claims that these cases that are going in court on Bank of Tanzania Tegeta Escrow Account saga and that the Controller and Auditor General (CAG) and PCCB investigated the matter and later the CAG’s report was tabled in Parliament.

It is further claimed that the tabling of the said report which made the Parliament to come up with the resolutions overlooked High Court’s order which barred the Parliament from tabling the report.

The plaintiff said the Parliament tabled the report due to wrong interpretation of the court injunction on the Escow saga.

They have petitioned the court to prevent the implementation of Parliament resolutions for November 29, 2014 and that the Speaker decision to accept them,  was against the law.

The High Court is expected to form a panel of judges and set a date to listen and make a ruling on the matter.

On November 25, 2014, IPTL, VIP Engineering and Pan African Energy got an injunction from the same court to effectively put debate on the Tegeta Escrow Account in Parliament on hold.

The High Court granted the injunction after being satisfied with arguments in the application by IPTL and its subsidiaries – PAN and VIP Engineering - which was filed under the certificate of urgency No.  51/2014.

But the Parliament went ahead and tabled the said report and came up with the eight resolutions.

On December 16, 2014 the State House said in a press statement that Werema had resigned.

It said Werema tendered his resignation, and President Jakaya Kikwete had accepted it.

In the resignation letter, Werema said he was quitting because his advice on the Tegeta Escrow account scandal was misunderstood  and  had in turn polluted the country’s socio-economic and political spectrum.

The statement quoted President Kikwete as having thanked Werema for “the diligence and trustworthiness he demonstrated during his time in service”.

And President Jakaya Kikwete promised to announce his decision on the resolution by the Parliament on the controversy surrounding the withdrawal of funds from the Tegeta Escrow Account any time this week.
