Nimetafakari wasifu wa aliyekuwa Gavana wa BoT Dr. Daudi Timoteo Saidi Balali, na sijaweza kuona sababu ya mtu aliyekuwa na wasifu na kipato kizuri sana (hata kabla ya huo ugavana) kujihusisha na wizi wa aina yoyote. Nahisi kuna usaliti aliofanyiwa, na inawezekana siku zote ambazo tulikosa habari zake kuna watu walizizuia kwa makusudi. Hiki kipande hapa chini nimekinakili kwenye ripoti iliyoandikwa mwaka juzi tu, 2006. Haiingilii akilini kuwa mtu anayezungumziwa hapa anaweza kuwa fisadi kwa kiwango tunachosadikishwa. Simjui huyu mtu, simtetei kwa chochote, natafakari tu kwa kutumia habari zilizopo kumhusu: "The Bank of Tanzania's unassuming and diminutive governor is 64-year old Mr. Daudi Balali. Having worked for the IMF in Washington for 21 years and headed missions to Kenya, Ghana, Lesotho, Somalia, Swaziland, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, and South Africa, Governor Balali was handpicked for the job in 1998 by former President Benjamin Mkapa. Mkapa had watched the younger Balali achieve significant results in both Ghana and Ethiopia. The post represented a return to the BOT for Governor Balali, who had previously held the position of Director of Research at the Bank of Tanzania before he joined the IMF. However, whilst the Governor's experience on the continent has proved an invaluable resource for the Tanzanian government, it was his connections with the IMF and World Bank which tipped the scales in Tanzania's favor. Tanzania has not only shed the basket case image it was burdened with in the 1990's – it is now regarded as one of the best managed economies on the continent, and has excellent relations with the development partners, largely because of the relationships which the Governor has been leveraging during his tenure. The Governor's family has remained in Washington, a city to which he is a frequent visitor. All this is a very far cry from Mr. Balali's humble beginnings. The Governor was one of the first Tanzanians to win a scholarship to study in the United States, where he studied at Harvard, after making his first trip by boat across the Atlantic Ocean".
