    Big breakthrough in Kagoda probe

    AT least two prominent personalities behind Kagoda Agriculture Limited company are now part of the 40bn/-embezzled from the Bank of Tanzania's external payment arrears (EPA) account via the ever-mysterious company, THISDAY has learnt.

    According to our sources close to the ongoing EPA scandal investigation, the duo (names withheld for now) have at last formally admitted their close links with Kagoda, and have stated that they are now ready to pay back a 'larger' part of the looted money.

    The sources said both are now expected to put their admissions and pledges in writing through signed statements to the case investigators, working under the presidential probe team into the EPA scandal led by Attorney General Johnson Mwanyika, Inspector of Police Said Mwema, and Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) chief Edward Hoseah.

    This development is seen as a significant breakthrough in the probe team's efforts to unravel the seemingly endless cobweb of mystery surrounding Kagoda Agriculture Limited. Though it is understood that various key suspects have in the past admitted before government functionaries to having strong connections to the allegedly 'shell' company, all have tended to strenuously deny such links publicly.

    Our sources say at least two prominent local businessmen - both understood to have considerable political influence - were indeed questioned at one point by the EPA scandal probe team over their alleged involvement in the scam.

    One is believed to have either voluntarily presented himself to the probe team, or was formally summoned for questioning directly in connection with his alleged association with the Kagoda company.

    The company was used to siphon over 40bn/- out of a total 133bn/- embezzled from the EPA account during 2005/06, via fraudulent payments personally approved by former central bank governor Daudi Ballali (now deceased).

    Both BoT auditors and government investigators have established that Kagoda company representatives presented forged documents to the central bank to facilitate payment of around $30,732,658.82 (approx. 40bn/-).

    All the forged Kagoda documents were signed between September 10 and November 5, 2005. The company is shown to have signed deeds of assignment of debts with 12 different foreign creditors from across the globe.

    It is understood that the EPA scandal probe team has now decided to send investigators to both Germany and Singapore to gather 'crucial evidence' about at least two of those creditor companies; Lindeteves J Export BV and Hoechst AG.

    The investigators are expected to try and ascertain whether Lindeteves J Export BV is headquartered in Germany (Franfurt) or in Singapore, and also ascertain the current status of Hoechst AG.

    It has been discovered during the investigation in Dar es Salaam that there is no record of when precisely the BoT received the deed of assignment between Kagoda and Lindeteves J Export BV, which was signed on November 11, 2005.

    Instead there is only a BoT payment document dated December 12, 2005.

    Available records are also said to indicate the Lindeteves J Export BV headquarters to be in Singapore and not Frankfurt, as purported in the suspect documentation leading up to the transfer of money from the EPA account to Kagoda.

    Hoechst AG meanwhile is understood to have originally started off as a German chemicals then life-sciences company, later renamed Aventis after merging with Rhone-Poulenc S.A. of France in 1999, and now known as Sanofi-Aventis since 2004.

    Our sources say the government investigators are trying to ascertain whether Kagoda was assigned the substantial debt by Hoechst AG before or after the 1999 merger with Rhone-Poulenc.

    As already well-established, there were glaring errors evident in all of Kagoda's documents, including the use of obsolete names of creditor companies, incompatible dates, and poorly-forged signatures.

    The deeds of assignment seen by THISDAY revealed that the forger(s) of the documents used the same contractual terms and wording for all the different foreign creditor companies.

    None of the contracts and documents were written on the official letterheads of the foreign companies, with key contact details for representatives of the firms missing.

    All the Kagoda documents were signed in Dar es Salaam before the same B.M. Sanze, an advocate and notary public and commissioner of oaths.

    Some documents were dated even before the Kagoda company was officially registered at the Business Registration and Licensing Authority (BRELA), thus rendering them null and void.

    Nonetheless, so far no charges whatsoever have been filed against any individuals behind the Kagoda company.

    Usanii mwingine huu kama ule wa EPA. Tunataka kumwagiwa changa la macho kwamba pesa za Kagoda zimerudishwa na majina ya watakaorudisha pesa hizo wala hatutayasikia kama katika ule usanii ulionyeshwa kwenye EPA tulipozugwa kwamba bilioni 70 zimerudishwa na mpaka hii leo waliorudisha pesa hizo bado majina yao ni siri kubwa kwa wavuja jasho na walipa kodi wa Tanzania.

    Wana maana gani kusema wame-admit?

    If they admit their mistakes then why are their name being withheld?

    And what money are they paying back? Ni ngapi so far zimerudishwa na ikaonekana zimerudishwa na kuleta maendeleo ya watanzania?

    What significant breakthrough? They knwe about them all along na kwa nini walikuwa hawachukuliwi hatua mpaka wakiri?

    Huu ni upuuzi wa kila leo halafu watu kama akina pengo wakikosoa viongozi wetu tunasema religion imeingilia politics.

    RUBBISH!

    We want to see them in court na mali zao kutaifishwa na kuon ela walizorudisha zimefanya hiki na kile.
    Thats what I would call a significant breakthrough otherwise ni mchezo ule ule wa JK na EPA Scandal Investigation Team.

    Inaelekea Kagoda imebeba pump inayoifanya nchi kupumua. Ikichokonolewa halafu ikasimama basi ni kama vile moyo wa mtu kusimama. Ndo mwisho wa uhai wake. Duuh

    CCM wanatafuta kufuta issue ya Kagoda na hoja ya kwamba CCM inawakumbatia ama ni mafisadi. Nafikiri ni maazimio ya CC iliyokaa karibuni.Katibu mwenezi amebadilika ghafla na sasa anasema kupiga vita ufisadi ni sera ya CCM kwani Zamani hakujuwa. Ni kama anawaunga mkono wabunge wanaopinga mafisadi ili kurudisha imani ya wananchi.

    Hatujakaa, sasa watuhumiwa wa kagoda wanarudisha pesa.Hizi ni mbinu za CCM kumaliza issue hizi mbili ambazo ni mlima mkubwa kwao kuelekea uchaguzi mwakani. Walifanikiwa kutupiga changa ya macho kwamba pesa za EPA bil.70 zilirudishwa.wananchi walishindwa kuthibitisha hilo na kunyamaza. Walitumia ubabe na kukataa katakata kutaja account iliyotumika kuweka pesa hizo.

    Wanacheza karata wakifanikiwa kuwakosesha wananchi data za kuwaumbua basi wameshinda.

    To be honest and with due respect to ThisDay paper I am taking this story with a pinch of salt. Juzi juzi Thisday walitoka na story kwamba yule Ghailani wa Rada amenaswa na makachero wa Uingereza na karibuni angeletwa hapa Tanzania only to turn into hot air!

    Kwa mtu anayejua undani kiasi wa Kagoda ni kwamba Mwanyika na team yake walipewa maelekezo maalum. Piga ua lakini kuna watu 2 ni "untouchable" katika sakata la EPA. Kagoda na Malegesy. Bila extenal pressure toka kwa wahisani kama World Bank/IMF kwa mtizamo wangu hawa jamaa wawili hawatakaa waione ndani ya mahakama labda katika awamu nyingine ya utawala wa nchi hii. La sivyo tutaendelea kupewa story za kuuza magazeti tu.

    Kama ulivyosena kuhusu THISDAY uko sahihi. Waliandika kuhusu Vithlani (si Ghailani) lakini kwa taarifa zililizokuwapo ni kwamba kuna kamchezo kamechezwa na wao walifanya kosa kuandika hiyo taarifa kwa haraka. Tuishie hapo. Kuhusu Kagoda, nadhani Thisday kama ilivyo JF ni lazima waamue sasa kuendelea kupiga kelele kuhusu Kagoda, Kagoda, Kagoda, hadi walio kaburini wasikie na hao wanaotoa maelekezo hatua zisichukuliwe waone na kujua kwamba watu wanajua kwamba wao wanawalinda Kagoda.

    Wamepoteza credibility kwa nani? Ujue wanaokerwa zaidi na hizi story ni hao hao ambao hadi leo wanajua Richmond, EPA haswa Kagoda, Kiwira, Mwananchi Gold, Vitalu vya uwindaji (Severe), Mahalu and familly na kadhalika vilitokana na Thisday na wanajitahidi sana kupunguza credibility ya Thisday ikiwa ni pamoja na kuhujumu watu na flow of information na wakati mwingine kufanya ujajusi. Kwa ujumla ni vigumu sana kuishusha Thisday kwa sasa hata kama wanajitahidi kuhujumu hata mauzo na matangazo.

    Ok,but an ivestigative story needs not to be covered in a hard-news-style. They should do thorough ivestigation before wiring such news items. That's what distinguishes an investigative reporter from a pack journalist/armchair reporter.

    ni michosho tu......JK usanii huu mpaka lini?? Pesa za EPA ulisema zimerudishwa lakini ukweli ni kwamba hakuna aliyerudisha pesa, pesa nyingi zilitumika ktk kampeni za kukuchagua wewe sasa nani karudisha pesa? au ni wewe?

    Hapa unaanza kutudanganya tena eti kagoda watarudisha pesa, hakuna kitu kama hicho. Lakini inasemekana hata kuto wachukulia hatua akina TICTS ni kwamba sehemu ya pesa wanayo zalisha pale bandarini ndo inatumika kuwa watu wa EPA wanarudisha.

    Kama ni hivyo, wewe ni mkuu wa nchi kwa nini usiseme jamani karaha yote ya EPA n.k. ni pesa ulitumia ktk uchaguzi wala tusinge kuuliza lakini sasa unapata taabu kweli kujaribu kutudanganya tena:

    Bunge liliunda kamati ya kuchunguza Richmond. Matokeo ya kazi ya kamati yanaridhisha.

    Umefika wakati Bunge/Wabunge wapitishe mswada wa kuunda kamati nyingine ya kuchunguza hizi "HELA HEWA" zilizorudishwa.

    Huu mchezo wa CCM ni SERIKALI yake hauna tija yeyote kwa NCHI na wananchi kwa ujumla. The names of these WAHUJUMU UCHUMI need to be public.

    Wananchi inabidi tuamke sasa na tupate majibu ya haya maswali. This is BS.
