    Foreign firm operates illegally for ten years

    By Costantine Sebastian
    THE CITIZEN

    A Norwegian engineering consultancy company has done business in the country illegally for nearly a decade, The Citizen has learnt.

    Information obtained from reliable sources and available documents show that the firm once operated without the approval of the Engineers Registration Board (ERB) and had neither registered with the Business Registration and Licencing Agency (Brela) nor secured a business licence.

    The company, which trades locally and internationally as Norconsult, is also being investigated by the World Bank on suspicion of corruption in a donor-funded project in the country.

    Norconsult AS (NO) was in 1997 found to be engaged in engineering consultancy in various government projects without being registered. ERB directed it to register and was registered as Norconsult Tanzania Ltd in 1998 as a foreign firm, ERB registrar Steven Mlote told The Citizen.

    However, the board recently established that Norconsult AS had not registered with Brela as of March 26, 2008. This means that it has been conducting business illegally as per Brela regulations, ERB notes in an April 18 memo.

    Acknowledging the anomaly, a government source said last week that ERB, the Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA), Tanzania Roads Agency (Tanroads) and Brela were working together on the issue.

    The institutions, however, are undecided on what action should be taken against the firm, which is a key player in aid extended by Norwegian.

    While ERB says it is Brela which is required to take legal action against Norconsult, Brela points at the Government without specifying what exactly it is supposed to do.

    TRA has remained mum on the issue although reliable sources in the authority have confirmed that the company is being investigated for tax evasion amounting to about Sh2.4 billion.

    It has come to our knowledge that Norconsult AS has neither filed statutory returns nor paid any taxes from 2002 to 2007 despite being registered as a taxpayer with TRA, Tanroads notes in a March 25, 2008 letter.

    Norconsult Tanzania (NTZ) managing director Francis Kifukwe denied any wrongdoing on the part of the firm and disputed claims that the company was being investigated for tax evasion.

    He said Tanroads had been misinformed, adding that tax records for both Norconsult AS and Norconsult Tanzania were with the Large Taxpayers Department.

    Contacted for comment, Brela CEO Esteriano Mahingila said he was personally not aware of any joint scrutiny of the company by the four government institutions.

    He said, however, that it was beyond comprehension for a company to do business, including with the Government, all those years without proper documentation.

    Mr Mahingila added that those working with the company could always have asked for its Brela registration, business licence, bank account and other important details relevant to transactions between the parties.

    He said, however, that a foreign company could operate without the requisite registrations when it had specific exemption from the Government, and gave the example of an organisation undertaking special assignments in the country for a limited duration.

    Since this is a foreign company, it was supposed to have a certificate of compliance, and not a certificate of incorporation, to be able to operate legally in the country,? Mr Mahingila said, noting that he was not aware that the company was only registered a few weeks ago.

    Mr Mahingila said those who had been working with the company were supposed to have established whether or not it was registered with the relevant authorities.

    Until this year, Norconsult AS the operations arm of Norconsult Holding AS was operating without Brela registration, which it, however, obtained within 48 hours on March 26. The company is also said to have been transacting business in the country without a valid licence.

    Local projects in which the company has been involved in recent years and their values include the Sengerema-Busagara road (Sh35.7 billion), Geita-Sengerema road (Sh39.5 billion) and the Unity Bridge is southern Tanzania. Others are the Rongai-Kamwanga road (Sh14.5 billion), Marangu-Rombo Mkuu road (Sh23.3 billion) as well as the Tarakea-Kamonaga and Mwika-Kilacha roads.

    The projects also include the World Bank-funded Dar es Salaam Water Supply and Sanitation Project, a joint venture with a local and a Dutch firm that was signed in July 2003. A Norwegian publication, Development Today, which is working closely with The Citizen on the issue, says the $6.7 million project might lead to Norconsult's blacklisting by the Work Bank.

    What raises the eyebrows of those who have been aware of the company's dubious activities is how it could have taken the relevant public organs and donors for a ride for that long. They question how a company could undertake public and donor-funded projects worth billions of shillings without paying a penny in taxes since 1991 without being detected.

    These people are said to have a minimum turnover of between $3 million and $4 million annually in the country. If the allegations against the company are true, then it means that many hands have been greased and taxes amounting to billions of shillings not paid, a tax expert consulted on the matter noted.

    Attempts by this paper since last month to get a reaction from Norconsult AS in Norway failed.

    According to Mr Kifukwe, the company initially operated in the country as Norconsult International (NI) AS which handled projects funded by the Norwegian government. The company then partnered with him to form Norconsult Tanzania as a branch of the Norconsult Group.

    Documents he handed over to The Citizen show that NI, which for many years handled the international operations in the group, was a wholly owned subsidiary of NO. A annual general meeting of Nom who date was not given, decided that all the activities in the Norconsult Group, including overseas operations, should be in the name of NO.

    As a consequence of that decision, the shares of Norconsult (Tanzania) that were owned by NI, have been transferred to NO, the chief executive officer of NO and chairman of the NI board, Mr John Nyheim, wrote to ERB on March 28, this year.

    These steps imply that NI will no longer be in business in Tanzania. Contracts entered into where the Norconsult Group will be involved, will therefore consequently be either in the name of the parent company NO or the partly owned NTZ, the letter further notes.

    Mr Mlote said NI had never applied for registration with ERB and therefore had never been registered. The board's record show that NTZ was initially registered as a foreign engineering consulting firm in 1998 with the Norwegians as the majority shareholders.

    In 2005, it applied to change its registration status from foreign to a local firm after transferring the majority of its shares to Mr Kifukwe. At the same time, the records show, NO applied for registration as a foreign firm.

    ERB says that NO was offering its services as far back as 1987 and it was after being pressured that it agreed to be registered on June 27, 2005. The company was registered with only one consulting engineer, Mr Peter Easther, a foreigner. All its other 11 directors are also foreigners.

    Normally, after registration with the board, all firms are required to register with Brela to fulfil business requirements before being allowed to conduct engineering consultancy services in the country,? ERB notes in its April 18 letter.

    Huyo Peter Easther ni Mu-Australia, ana ki diploma tu na mambo mengine anafanya ki ujanja ujanja, anaongoza wabongo wana Ma Masters yao!

    Francis Kifukwe mwenyewe kutwa kucha yuko kwenye mambo ya Yanga tu, hata muda wa kufanya kazi mdogo sana.

    Hii story inahitaji nyama zaidi though.

    Labda huyo jamaa ana experience ya nguvu sana......ndio kigezo!!

    Hii ya kampuni ku-operate 10 years bila kuwa na legal registartion........ni mambo ya ajabu kabisa.....only in Tanzania!!.......yaani Tanzania ufisadi kila kona!!.......

    Norwegian firm pulls out over graft

    By Tom Mosoba

    A Norwegian engineering consulting firm undertaking government and donor-funded projects worth billions of shillings has pulled out of the country over corruption allegations.

    The firm, Norconsult AS, announced on Sunday that it was winding up all its operations in Tanzania and terminating the employment of its managing director after audit reports linked it to corruption.

    The decision to halt its lucrative contracts in Tanzania was taken a week after The Citizen exclusively revealed how the Norwegian company had operated locally for a decade without any form of official registration.

    The decision was announced by Norconsult global president John Nyheim in a two-page statement posted on its official website. It said the decision to close down operations in Tanzania has been communicated to the relevant Norwegian authorities.

    According to the statement, audits done over the last one year for instance, revealed embezzlement of up to a reported Sh332 million in 'highly irregular payments'.

    Norconsult AS had since 1998 ran business in the country as Norconsult Tanzania Limited but without obtaining official registration from the Business Registration and Licensing Agency (Brela) until this year, according to the Engineers Registration Board (ERB).

    That anomaly did not, however, prevent Norconsult from executing mammoth projects funded the Government, World Bank and the Norwegian government. It has over the years evolved into one of the major engineering consultancy firms in Tanzania.

    Yesterday evening, Norconsult AS's local partner and managing director Francis Kifukwe did not wish to respond on the latest development and appeared surprised when The Citizen sought his comments.

    However, it was later established that Mr Kifukwe was in a meeting with Norwegian officials in Dar es Salaam.

    Earlier, a call to the local offices of Norconsult also yielded a negative response from an unidentified woman staffer who said they had nothing on the matter.

    In the statement announcing their withdrawal, Mr Nyheim said Norconsult AS was perturbed by its operations in Tanzania, which he noted "do not measure up to the company's international code of ethics and contracts".

    �We do not accept any kind of misconduct or corruption. As a consequence, we cease our activities in Tanzania,� said Mr Nyheim.

    He added: �Internal and external reviews of the activities of Norconsult�s partly owned subsidiary in Tanzania have revealed activity that is not in accordance with the company�s Code of Ethics and contracts.�

    He said the misconduct was revealed through Norconsult�s own internal review followed by an external review by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

    Mr Nyheim gave the example of Sh332 million which was believed to have been corruptly obtained from its local operations.

    �It has been established that in the past several irregular cash payments have been made from Norconsult�s partly owned subsidiary in Tanzania, NTZ, totalling approximately NOK (Norwegian Kronor) 650.000 (Sh156 million),� he said.

    He noted that last year, $146 500 (Sh176 million) had been paid out in cash from the project office in Dar es Salaam, with only petty cash receipts as documentation. This particular case apparently involved Norconsult�s participation in the World Bank-funded Dar es Salaam Water and Sanitation (Dawasa) project.

    Interestingly, however, the Norconsult boss absolved his company from blame, saying none of its employees took part or was aware of the reported irregular payments at the Dar es Salaam office.

    �We have brought the irregular activities to an end. NTZ (Norconsult TZ) has been put under administration from Norway. The employment of the managing director is being terminated. Finally, we withdraw from Tanzania. Any kind of misconduct and corruption is contrary to all we stand for and believe in. No Norconsult employees have contributed to or known about the irregular payments,� said Mr Nyheim.

    He said the Norwegian National Authority for Investigation and Prosecution of Economic and Environmental Crime (�KOKRIM) has been notified about the embezzlement with a view to taking legal action.

    Norconsult, he said, did a full review of all international activities to detect misconduct emphasising that its aim was to help bodies like the World Bank fight corruption.

    �Norconsult is also reviewing the internal procedures for evaluation of cooperating parties, bidding, contracting, execution, financial control and accounting in order to prevent corruption in connection with our assignments,� he stated.

    The shutting down of the Tanzania office by a firm that has several offices span across several countries is certain to bear a lot of significance in the war against corruption in the country and gives credence to views that some international corporate bodies could be silent and implicit players in fueling the vice.

    Tanzanian authorities are already reported to be investigating the Dar office of Norconsult for tax evasion amounting to Sh2.4 billion for the period between 2002 and 2007.

    �It has come to our knowledge that Norconsult AS has neither filed statutory returns nor paid any taxes from 2002 to 2007 despite being registered as a taxpayer with TRA,� Tanroads notes in a March 25, 2008 letter.

    Local projects in which the company has been involved in recent years and their values include the Sengerema-Busagara road (Sh35.7 billion), Geita-Sengerema road (Sh39.5 billion) and the Unity Bridge is southern Tanzania. Others are the Rongai-Kamwanga road (Sh14.5 billion), Marangu-Rombo Mkuu road (Sh23.3 billion) as well as the Tarakea-Kamonaga and Mwika-Kilacha roads.

    Haya ndiyo niliyoyandika jana, tunakimbilia kusema kampuni za Watanzania zina wababaishaji, kumbe wanashindana na majambazi ya kimataifa.

    Kampuni ya Mswahili itachunguzwa na papers kufunguliwa mara 20, anakuja mzungu, ni pita tu bwana mkubwa.

    Hao hao BRELA au TRA ndio tukipita wengine na kufuata kila sheria wanatuona
    kama takataka, hii nchi yetu imejaa Wajinga na Wapumbavu wengi sana serikali, itakuwa ngumu mno kuendelea.

    Nina mengi sana ya kuandika kuhusu ujinga na ubwege wa Watanzania inapokuja kwenye masuala yanayohusu Watanzania wenzao na wageni. Nitasubiri mpaka nije niweke kwenye kitabu kwi kwi kwi!!!

    Mkuu! Francis Kifukwe ameishakuwa mzungu? Painful as it is, lazima tukubali kuwa ni sisi, ambao tuko mbele kwenye hii michezo michafu.

    Nadhani ni hii ndiyo kampuni iliyofanya Environmental Impact Assessment kwa mradi wa Soda Ash Ziwa Natron.kama ni hivyo, kuna haja ya ku'suspend' mradi na kufanya EIA nyingine. Mnyakyusa atakuwa ametutosa!

    FM,

    Najua Kifukwe sio mzungu (namfahamu yeye binafsi kwa karibu mno)ila hiyo ni kampuni ya Wazungu na ndio maana ilifanikiwa kufanya kazi kubwa kubwa miaka kumi bila hata kuguswa.

    Ingelikuwa kampuni ya mswahili ungeona wasingemaliza hata mwezi.

    Middle class ya Watanzania ndio wasaliti wakubwa wa nchi. Wanaweza kuja hapa JF kulaani viongozi mafisadi lakini kama ni mtu clean na umewahi kufanya biashara TZ, utajua ninasema nini. Hao hao walioko Brela, TRA, banks, ardhi nk. wanaihujumu TZ kwa njia chungu nzima. Kibaya zaidi wanakwamisha Watanzania wenzao, wakati wakija Wazungu wanalegea, shame on them!

    Ndio maana watu kama akina Kifukwe kwa kutumia ukaribu wao na Wazungu wakaweza kupeta miaka yote hiyo bila kuguswa wala kulipwa kodi.

    Wanaondoka tu bila hata kulipa kodi kwa miaka yote waliofanya biashara Tanzania? na pia wanastahili kutozwa faini kubwa kwa kujihusisha na biashara bila ya kuwa na kibali cha kufanya hivyo.

    Ndugu yangu BRELA hawakuoni kuwa wewe takataka, ila wanaona kuwa huna pesa ya kuwahonga, ni rahisi sana kuwa trick wageni na kuwafanya wahonge kuliko sisi, lakini that is the price we pay for showing patriotism and respect to our laws.

    Kuna Kifukwe, kuna mu Australia mmoja hajasoma lakini arrogant kichizi anaitwa Peter Easter na alikuwapo Muingereza mmoja sasa hivi nasikia ana cancer karudi kwao anaitwa Stuart, hao watatu ndiyo walikuwa vinara wa madili yote.

    I always knew Kifukwe was shady, what's wrong with the Mponjolis? In a short span of time another Mponjoli brings shame to the name.

    Jamaa alikuwa full time yeye mambo ya mpira tu, kuna mchagga anaitwa Mawalla huyo Mzee anagawa hivi vimillion 1-5 kama pipi, kumbe zote za wizi.

    Kuna ma Engineer wa Kitanzania walikuwa wamesoma Masters zao shule za kueleweka wakawa wanaongozwa na Mu Aussie tapeli Peter Easter.I guess it is time kufunga virago.Lakini kabla ya hapo inabidi washitakiwe.I suspect that will never happen.

    Mkuu bubu ukitaka kujua nchi yetu ilivyo ya ajabu ni hapo, hawa jamaa kodi kodi flani lazima watakuwa wamelipa. Lakini tukumbuke TRA huwa haihoji mabo ya BRELA wewe ukiwa na TIN no. tu karibu!!!!! na hiyo TIN no. unaweza kumtuma mtu kama vile kumtuma mtoto dukani, in minutes unakuwa nayo.

    irregardless ya huyo Mu-Australia..............kinachosikitisha zaidi ni hao watanzania wahandisi na supporting staff wanaofanya kazi hapo diligently.......sijui ajira yao itakuwa vipi,

    .....maana kama jamaa ndio walikuwa major share holder......na mikataba ya kazi (waliyonayo) zinazoendelea waliingia wao.....sasa kama wame-cease siju utaratibu unakuwaje?......Fundi Mchundo/Mtanzania/Morani/Mwendapole hebu tupeni shule hapo
