    Energy and Minerals minister William Ngeleja has said airstrips at mining areas are not meant for stealing minerals, but rather for improving accessibility to the areas.

    Minister of Energy and Minerals, Mr William Ngeleja


    He said this in a telephone interview yesterday when responding to claims by some leaders of opposition political leaders that some mining companies own aero planes and used the airstrips to export minerals.


    "We are building airfields to facilitate accessibility. You know some mining sites are located deep inside forests. It has to be understood that air transportation is allowed in those areas," stressed Ngeleja.


    He stressed that all activities at mining sectors were being done under the country's laws and regulations.

    "Officers from the Ministry of Energy and Minerals,
    Tanzania Revenue Authority, Immigration Department and organs are involved in verifying minerals before shipment," he said.


    Ngeleja added, "People need to understand that large and small airfields are all under the
    Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority."


    The Minister said that there was no way minerals could be exported without passing
    Dar es Salaam and the Bank of Tanzania must be aware of the statistics of the consignments for export.


    "
    Dar es Salaam is, the entry and exit point…Our officials are positioned there to watch what is taking place. There are no minerals that are exported directly from the mining sites," he stressed.

    ... haaa haa haaa haaa, Ngeleja!!!

    Please, DON'T waste our valuable time; go and tell those lies to the birds. It is too late for you and your party to be able to convince anybody anywhere about the lowest level skills in managing our natural resources.

    Ngeleja ni sawa na lile tangazo la kibelaaaaaaaa!

    Tena namfananisha na yule jamaa aliyesema mgombea wa CCM arumeru apewe ubunge ili aweze kupata mshahara wa kujikimu yeye na familia ya marehem baba yake.

    Hakuna wizara yenye skendo kama hii nchi hii. Halafu kwa kukanusha sijui walienda kozi maalumu ya ubishi maana hata ukiwaambia nimeona wao watakwambia hiyo uliyoona siyo. Haya bana
