    Defence giant BAE Systems is due to be sentenced for failing to keep proper records of payments to an adviser in the east African country of Tanzania.

    Payments totalling about 12.4 million US dollars (£7.7 million) were made to two companies controlled by Tanzania-based businessman Shailesh Vithlani between January 2000 and December 2005, Southwark Crown Court was told on Monday.

    The company believes that Mr Vithlani was probably given the money for helping it win a contract to provide a radar system at Dar-es-Salaam international airport, the court heard. Some payments were through a company controlled by BAE plc, called Red Diamond, which was registered in the British Virgin Islands, Victor Temple QC, prosecuting for the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) said.

    Tanzania ililipa bilioni 40 na sasa mahakama ya uingereza imeagiza ilipwe fidia ya bilioni 50 na rada yenyewe juu! Ndooh wabongo kweli wana akili, mnaonaje wahusika wakubwa kwenye dili hii wakatunukiwa nishani ya mlima kilimanjaro?
