    IN SUMMARY

    • The government has banned the Arusha-based company from further producing and distributing ARVs as it investigates the matter.
    • 9,570 tins of the fake drug had been recalled and about 2,600 are still being stored in medical stores.


    The discovery of counterfeit anti-retrovirals could scuttle Tanzania Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd's - the country's sole manufacturer of ARVs - export plans.


    The government has banned the Arusha-based company from further producing and distributing ARVs as it investigates the matter.


    This comes in the backdrop of plans by TPI to set up a modern plant to manufacture ARVs, deputy managing director Zarina Madabida said.



    "We are conducting our own investigations to determine the motive to discredit TPI as we are about to inaugurate a Tsh10 billion ($6.4 million) plant under a grant from the European Union, with an eye on the international market," Ms Madabida said.



    She added that the decision to halt production was a big blow to the company as it was likely to affect business especially at the new plant, which is designed to produce ARVs and other drugs for opportunistic diseases.



    "The government has served us a 14-day notice to explain the fake drugs but it is inconceivable that we can fake our own," said Ms Madabida.



    Additionally, the Minister of Health and Social Welfare, Hussein Mwinyi suspended three top officials at Medical Stores Department, a government entity and sole distributor of ARVs in the country.



    The minister said so far 9,570 tins of the fake drug had been recalled and about 2,600 are still being stored in medical stores.



    TPI got the technology transfer to manufacture ARVs from Thailand and has been doing so since 2007

    baada ya kuwaibia watanzania kupitia mradi wa ARV amekimbilia kugombea m-kiti wa mkoa wa dar es salaam ili kulinda maslahi yake kwa sababu anajua wazi kuwa ccm imeweka maslahi ya ccm mbele kuliko ya nchi kwahiyo pamoja na ufisadi mkubwa alioufanya anatumia m-kiti wa ccm kama kinga ya kujilinda dhidi ya ubadhirifu unaomkabili.
    shame on you wana ccm kumchagua fisadi kuongoza chama chenu

    Ndio, Na Project amemaliza SASA ni KULA NCHI NZIMA sasa; Hicho kiwanda alikipata alipokuwa MBUNGE wa AFRIKA ya MASHARIKI; Sasa alipokuwa MEYA wa JIJI naona alibeba VIWANJA kibao - ni wakati wa ku-invest.

    Inashangaza kweli Mjumbe MMOJA aliulizwa swali la hicho kiwanda chake cha ARV's; Anayesimamia UCHAGUZI akasema Hilo swali sio wakati wake hapa; Mchagueni MADABIDA na akapita...

    You, are very right kwenye UBUNGE wa EAC nilikuwa namchanganya na DIDAS MASABURI; Umenifanya nimsome zaidi; He is currently the Chief Executive Officer of Tanzania Pharmaceutical Industries Limited, which is one of the privatized former public enterprises. Mr. Madabida has played a leading role in the privatization of the Tanzanian public pharmaceutical manufacturing sector...

    * Ndie alieichukua NATIONAL CHEMICAL INDUSTRIES (Government Owned Company)

    Masikitisho ni hivyo kutengeneza hizo ARVs...
