    Whether or not the General Budget Support (GBS) is a visible modality for attracting foreign aid to support Tanzania’s development strategies, the question is still a subject for lengthy discussion, as some development partners expressed skepticism over lack of accountability and transparency and corruption controls in public expenditures.

    Senior government officials and some representatives of development partners are optimistic that GBS is an appropriate model for channelling foreign aid to enable the government to meet its budgetary obligations.

    However, some donors are hesitant to disburse their aid through GBS because of what analysts and diplomats described as lack of government seriousness in public finance management and massive corruption in public institutions.

    This can be testified by the recent pullout of two potential development partners, Switzerland and The Netherlands, from the GBS. Speaking at the GBS Day here on Friday, which saw donors’ official endorsement of over Sh840bn in support of the 2011/12 budget, the Finance Minister, Mustafa Mkulo said five years ago, 14 donor countries signed GBS framework, but “now we have only 12 development partners

    Twelve development partners signed Partnership Framework Memorandum (PFM), signifying their (donors) readiness to financially support Tanzania’s development strategies through GBS package on annual basis—starting with the next financial year-2011/12 budget.

    But the pullout of two partners is a major blow to the government, which faces fierce criticisms for its failure to mitigate the impact of the economic hardships triggered by high fuel and food prices. There are indications that the pullout stemmed from the fact that some donors do not view GBS as a suitable modality through which their aid could be channeled for supporting the country’s development endavours.

    They are concerned that it becomes difficult for them to monitor and evaluate results of their funding—in the face of widespread corruption and misuse of public funds in public systems.

    But finance minister, Mkulo said: “Those who pulled out of the GBS are still dishing out their financial assistance through other modalities.”

    “They decided to withdraw themselves from GBS package, but they are still supporting other development programmes in the country,” he told reporters shortly after the endorsement of a pact under which twelve development partners agreed to disburse more than Sh812bn in support of the next year budget.

    At home, some diplomats are scrutinizing the viability and potentiality of GBS, a proof which could serve as the basis for their governments to continue releasing funding to Tanzania through the modality (GBS).

    “General budget support is under intense scrutiny in many of our home countries. We need to show results that GBS is achieving and that we (donor countries) are getting good value for money from every dollar, Euro, Pound, Yen and Kroner, given to Tanzania,” said Ingunn Klepsvik, Norwegian Ambassador and outgoing GBS Group of development partners, at the opening of GBS day.

    He tasked the government to improve budgetary transparency and strengthen oversight and accountability mechanism in the context of enhancing effective management of funds and resources on behalf of Tanzanians.

    Head of EU Mission and incoming chair of the GBS Group, Tim Clarke said: “I am taking this responsibility when the GBS is critically under scrutiny…and the concern of many donors is that GBS should be seen as demonstrating positive results.”

    “We strengthen domestic accountability as a key issue of the GBS instrument,” he added.

    Ngosha Said Magonya, Commissioner of External Finance in the Ministry of Finance, admitted that some donors are skeptical in channeling their financial assistance through GBS, noting that this was a big challenge which needs to be addressed by both parties (government and development partners).

    Opening the GBS meeting, the Prime Minister, Mizengo Pinda said the pullout of two development partners from GBS was not a good signal to the future of GBS, urging government representatives and development partners to productively engage and sort out anomalies detected in the operationalisation of GBS package.

    “Let’s continue to work together, strengthen our partnership, and be open to each other when things go wrong,” said the premier, adding the government will prudently and properly utilizes GBS financial resources, as per the GBS Partnership Framework Memorandum (PFM).

    Finance minister, Mkulo said donors should not be worried by the two development partners, pledging government resolve to attract new development partners to the GBS and ensure that “donors currently in the GBS expand their financial aid to Tanzania

    MY TAKE: MKULO IS BLIND AND SENSELESS ON THE COUNTRY ECONOMY,
    kama kikwete hataona kwamba tume ya mipango na mkulo ni
    sio tu kwa kupoteza donor kiuchumi kwa ujumla wanaimba kila
    siku mtekisiko wa uchumi dunia la ni plan gani walizonazo hawasemi
    lakini pia mkuu wa kaya anatusaliti wananchi kwa kucheza na kucheka na wezi hali nchi inaangamia. kama kikwete ana mpango wa kuthibiti mianya ya rushwa na wala rushwa nchi hii itakuwa ngumu sana kutawalika katika kipindi cha mwaka moja ujao

    I find no reason as to why these so called donours persist funding us inspite of all public fund embezzlements. Should we be skeptical on their continuance on funding embezzlements. We are resourceful enough to stand as Tanzania. If at all donours were filling pity on such wasted cash would have shun away,otherwise we Tanzanians believe there is substantial interests in their intention to waste their funds. Donors keep your two eyes on funds sent to Tanzania! Kenya is great on its funds,why not Tanzania?

    Mimi nadhani tatizo ni ukosefu wa ubuni wa serikali yetu matokeo yake ni kuwa tegemezi,
    lakini tatazi kubwa la nchi hii ni misallocation of resource all of them including human (profetional) na kutowajibika/kutowajishwa kwa watendaji wa serikali pale wanapofanya makaso ya makusudi au uzembe.

    Sijui tume ya mipango ina kazi gani hapa nchini ni kama upotezaji wa pesa kuwalipa misharaha hawa watu.

    Leo hii umeme ni tatizo , maji na njia za mawasiliani hali viongozi wanakanyaga mashangingi kwenye trafic hapa Dar na mikoani.

    Kama serikali haitopunguza matumizi tutakuwa ombaomba milele.

    Note what this pull out signals to our patnership not only in the amount of money involved. Serious minds see this as a setback. Please be candid to your country.

    I think the citizens from the donor countrys are stupid or being duped and manipulated by their government and politicians to allow their taxes being misussed by other country so easily.

    most of them i know the think africa is like sudan so they 50/50 to accept or agree but the day media will explore how their money being used in countries like tanzania (kununulia mashangingi) kutakua na vita kali mkuu, hawajajua tu.
    kikwete mara nyingi kaingia hapa mjini LONDON lakini hakuna media coverage nadhani ni cover up ya mambo yasije kutibuka siku moja . hapa hao walijitoa ni wananchi wao kuanza kushituka.

    kama umesoma habari vizuri mtoto wa mkulima kasema hivi>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Opening the GBS meeting, the Prime Minister, Mizengo Pinda said the pullout of two development partners from GBS was not a good signal to the future of GBS, urging government representatives and development partners to productively engage and sort out anomalies detected in the operationalisation of GBS package<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<


    kwa maana nyingine kuna hatari ya hiyo bilioni sh 810/= kuwa zero anyway time maana hao ni wamoja na walibaki wanakuwa kuwa na mawazo ya waliotoka,
    wazo ni hoja ya msingi ni serikali kukata matumizi mbona hata mataifa makubwa yanakata matumizi kuepusha serikali kukopa
    uingereza wanatupatia milioni £140 (sawa na bilion 3 )kwa miradi ya maendeleo , lakini nchini kwao wanakata hudumu muhimu na watu wanalia
    je nini kinachowafanya watuone sisi bora kuliko watu wao?
    tume ya mipango na wizara ya fedha kwa ujumla wanaje na punguzo la matumizi serikali ili tujitegemee sio kutamba na mashangingi wa misaada na hali ya uchumi inazidi kuyumba

    The tz govt is always under pressure from "CDM", even though the reality it is not from CDM, the pressure comes from different sources, being short sited our leaders always think every problem facing them as a govt has been created by CDM. No wonder now they'll say its CDM who went to donnars. I hate beinig funded by donners as we can stand on our own if we use properly our God given resources. Wake up so as to utilise our resources that are gift from super natural power.

    kama nchi siyo masikini isingesaidiwa! Tanzania bado ni masikini sana na tunahitaji barabara vijijini, umeme, maji safi, elimu na afya. Misaaada mingi hasa ya NGO kama Bill Clinton na Bill Gates Foundation zinasaidia baadhi ya mambo. Tatizo kubwa nchi yetu inaviongozi wasio wabunifu, wabinafsi na muundo wa serikali yote kuwa Dar sio mzuri kwa nchi

    subirini budget inayokuja, itakuja na upungufu mkubwa tu hata 40 perc na bado watalazimisha ipitishwe hivyohivyo huku hata hawajui watafidiaje upungufu huo! Watakula cash yote waliyonayo na kukaa na kusubiri wahisani watoe msaada wao ndo watekeleze mipango ya maendeleo na kulipa mishahara.

    Tujitegemee, uwezo huo tunao ni uamuzi tu. Tuna kila aina ya resources tz, lakini resources hizo zinatumika kuendeleza nchi za nje badala nchi yetu, tukate mirija yote tuhakikishe kwamba 100% ya raslimali zetu zinajenga nchi yetu uone kama tutahitaji hata senti moja ya mtu toka nje. Ifike sehemu sisi tz ndio tuwe tunatoa misaada nje, na hilo ni suala la kuamua tu kwa kuwa kila kitu tunacho.
