    New revelations on military helicopters deal: Deliberately overpriced by close to $20m

    -Govt duped into buying same model earlier rejected by former army chief
    Name of Merlin International crops up yet again

    THISDAY REPORTER
    Dar es Salaam

    IT has now been revealed that the Ministry of Defence and National Service paid a vastly inflated price for the same helicopters it had earlier officially rejected as being unfit for military use.

    According to latest THISDAY findings, the ministry paid more than $9m (approx. 11bn/-) for each of the four Agusta Bell choppers, which was almost double the actual unit price of around $4.7m (approx. 6bn/-), going by prevailing market prices.

    This means that defence ministry officials squandered a total of $18.25m (about 22bn/-) in overpaying for the helicopters under dubious circumstances.

    Government sources familiar with the deal have now informed THISDAY that the Agusta Bell helicopter model 412 EP bought by the ministry a couple of years ago are soft-skin, civilian aircraft and not standard military choppers.

    ’’The helicopter model and specifications bought for the army is similar to the one currently being used by the police force,’’ a government aviation expert said.

    The Minister for Defence and National Service, Prof. Juma Kapuya, was not immediately available for comment yesterday to respond to the latest findings with regard to the controversial defence contracts.

    It is understood that the then Chief of Defence Forces (CDF), General Robert Mboma, had earlier rejected the Agusta Bell helicopters on grounds that they were designed for commercial flights and not military operations.

    General Mboma, a former commanding officer of the Tanzania Peoples’ Defence Forces (TPDF) Air Wing, is said to have preferred the French-made Cougar AS 532 helicopters, which are described as being more appropriate for military use.

    According to our sources, it was on General Mboma’s recommendation that TPDF in 1998 entered into an agreement with a Dar es Salaam-based firm for the supply of the Cougar helicopters, manufactured by the Eurocopter company in France.

    ’’However, unexpected delays cropped up and the tender was finally wrestled away from the local company that had initially won the contract,’’ said one of our sources.

    At this point, it has now been disclosed that another city-based firm - Merlin International Limited - somehow manoeuvred its way into the contract for the supply of the helicopters to TPDF.

    But in a surprise move, after succeeding in elbowing out the company that had won the tender in the first place, Merlin is understood to have later supplied to the government the same Agusta Bell civilian choppers that had previously been rejected by the army.

    Merlin International Limited is the same company linked to the supply of the controversial $41m (approx. 52bn/-) military radar system, the sale of a $40m (50.7bn/-) Gulfstream presidential jet to the government, and the supply of over 600 IVECO military trucks for over 90bn/-.

    The company’s majority shareholder, businessman Shailesh Vithlani, is reported to have worked closely with a network of influential local partners, including high-ranking government officials both current and retired, to secure the lucrative defence contracts.

    The then Prevention of Corruption Bureau (PCB) and Britain’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) have been separately investigating the radar deal in the wake of revelations that $12m (approx. 15bn/-) worth of illegal kickbacks were paid to several top officials to approve the controversial deal.

    The money, said to have been secretly paid by the UK arms manufacturer company BAE Systems into a Swiss bank account, has allegedly been linked to Vithlani and other members of his local network.

    Let me see: $ 12million from the radar. $20 million from the helicopter. And God knows how much tulikamuliwa from ndege ya rais. Kwa mtaji huu huyu Sailesh Vithlani ni mwekezaji mzuri sana.

    Sijui kama unatania hapa ndugu yangu, lakini ni kuwa, hawa watu tungelikuwa tunawaona wa maana sana kama hizo commissions zao wangelikuwa wanazitumia kujengea mahospitali,mabarabara na vyuo hapo hapo nchini. Ndiyo wanaruhusiwa kufanya wapendalo na pesa zao, lakini mambo ya ku-transfer pesa zote in dollars kwenda nchi za nje kila wanapozipata ina tia shaka sana kwa uchumi wa taifa. Ndiyo maana shilingi yetu inazidi kudidimia.... Sijui kama kuna masharti makali kuhusu wire transfers za mamilioni ya pesa nchini kwa watu kama hao ambao wana mbinu nyingi tu za kuweza kufanya hivyo...

    Hebu fikiria kuna tenda ngapi za mambo muhimu ndani ya jeshi zimenunua vitu hewa au bandia??

    CCM mmekwisha.

    CCM wanategemea kwamba wana jeshi kumbe ni jeshi la wenye vitambi zana hawana.

    Huko kwenye Ghala la silaha wanasema wana risasi kumbe ni fake, Risasi ndani zina Mchanga badala ya Baruti.

    Ujanja huo ukisha kula nawa mikono!

    Kama vile tetesaikrini zenye unga wa muhogo kutoka Asia.

    Safi sana safi sana vijana wa JWTZ CCM wana kula na nyie kuleni kwani nyie hamna meno??

    Mabomu ambayo ndani ni kokoto au ni chuma chenye shepu ya bomu. Hi ni baaaabu kubwa!!

    Ghala limejaa Bunduki zilizo jamu kwa hitilafu ya kiwandani.Du hii ni hatari kweli

    Baruti ambayo ni chafu hailipuki.Uwiii!

    Pengine wengine wanauza Risasi na mabomu kwa majirani wanaopigana na kujaza mawe kwenye maboksi kucmpasate uzito. Mamaaa!!

    Spea fake za ndege na vifaru.

    Safi sana vijana wa JWTZ ongezeni bidii katika kulihujumu jeshi
    ili siku ikifika iwe rahisi.

    Rushwa na ubadhirifu ni mtamu sana kama wewe ndiye unaye faidi lakni madhara yake yanampata kila mmoja ikiwa ni pamoja na wewe mbadhirifu.

    Kidumu Chama Cha mapinduzi.

    Hawa Khaisa kwenda mahakamani ni dili lingine pia...hapa serikali itashindwa then mahakama itaamuru Khaisa watalipwa hiyo fidia wanayoitaka. Serikali itasema inafuata amri ya mahakama; watu wanaendelea kula bila kutafuna kwa kwenda mbele.

    Serikali Kuu mahakamani




    na Happiness Katabazi



    KAMPUNI ya Khaisa Enterprises Ltd imefungua kesi ya kudai fidia sh bilioni 16.8 dhidi ya serikali kwa madai ya kuvunja mkataba wa kununua helikopta sita za Jeshi la Wananchi wa Tanzania (JWTZ).
    Kesi hiyo ambayo inaweza kuibua aina nyingine ya kashfa dhidi ya serikali, imefunguliwa jana katika Mahakama Kuu Tanzania, Kanda ya Dar es Salaam.

    Wadaiwa katika kesi hiyo namba 74 ya mwaka 2007, ni Katibu Mkuu wa Wizara ya Ulinzi na Jeshi la Kujenga Taifa na Mwanasheria Mkuu wa Serikali.

    Kwa mujibu wa hati ya madai, fidia hiyo ni sawa na asilimia nane ya kamisheni ya mauzo ya helikopta waliyokubaliana kati ya kampuni ya Khaisa na JWTZ.

    Mlalamikaji katika kesi hiyo, anataka alipwe fidia kutokana na kuvunjika kwa makubaliano ya awali ya kutoa huduma ya ushauri wa kitaalamu baina yake na Kampuni ya Eurocopter ya Ufaransa na Jeshi la Wananchi wa Tanzania (JWTZ).

    Pia fidia ya kiasi hicho cha fedha kinatokana na gharama za usafiri alizofanya mlalamikaji nchini Ufaransa, Marekani, Afrika Kusini na Falme za Kiarabu kwa lengo la kuangalia helikopta zilizofaa kununuliwa na serikali kwa ajili ya JWTZ.

    Kwa mujibu wa hati hiyo, mwaka 1997, JWTZ ilitangaza kununua helikopta na vifaa vyake toka Paris, Ufaransa katika kiwanda cha Eurocopter ambacho ni kiwanda kikubwa duniani kinachotengeneza ndege za aina ya helikopta.

    Barua ya maombi ya kumtaka mlalamikaji atafute helikopta hizo, iliandikwa na Mwanasheria Mkuu Novemba 14 mwaka 1997.

    Kutokana na barua hiyo ya maombi, mlalamikaji alienda kuulizia na kuitaka Kampuni ya Eurocopter kuuza helikopta hizo kupitia wakala huyo, kwa ajili ya JWTZ.

    "Pande zote mbili katika makubaliano zilikuwa ni wadai kwa nafasi zao, kwa niaba ya Serikali ya Jamhuri ya Muungano na Eurocopter. Kwa hiyo katika "Memorandum of Understanding' (hati ya makubaliano) walikubaliana kimsingi kwamba mlalamikaji ambaye ni kampuni ya Khaisa atapokea kamisheni ya asilimia nane ya jumla ya manunuzi ya bei kama ada ya ushauri katika mwisho wa mkataba wao," ilieleza hati hiyo.

    Kwa mujibu wa hati hiyo, mlalamikaji akiwa katika hatua za mwisho kukamilisha kazi yake, timu ya wataalamu toka ofisi ya Katibu wa Wizara ya Ulinzi, ilikwenda Ufaransa kufanya uchunguzi na kuziona helikopta hizo kabla hazijanunuliwa.

    Anadai baada ya uchunguzi kufanywa, wataalamu hao walikubali kuingia mkataba wa manunuzi ya helikopta aina ya COUGAR AS 523 multi-role kwa ajili ya shughuli za kiraia na kijeshi na roketi 1200.

    Mlalamikaji ambaye anatetewa na Kampuni ya uwakili ya M&N Law Associate (Advocate), anadai baada ya kuandikwa kwa barua hiyo ya maombi kwa aliyekuwa Mkuu wa JWTZ, Robert Mboma, alisema wanataka Ufaransa itengeneze Cougar AS 532 aina ya helikopta, ambayo itatumika kwa matumizi ya kijeshi na si ya kiraia.

    Awali mwaka 1998, JWTZ, iliingia makubaliano na Dar es Salaam-based firm kwa ajili ya kuwapatia helikopta zinazotengenezwa na Kiwanda cha Eurocopter nchini Ufaransa.

    Alidai Eurocopter walikuwa wameishaanza kukubali kuuza COUGAR helikopta sita kwa jumla ya sh bilioni 210.

    Mlalamikaji anadai kuwa, wakati kazi ya utekelezaji ikianza, alipokea taarifa toka kwa mdaiwa wa kwanza ambaye ni JWTZ, kwamba kampuni nyingine ipo kwenye harakati za kufanya kazi kama yake.

    Hata hivyo, alisema barua hiyo haikutaja jina la kampuni hiyo mpya iliyokuwa ikifanya kazi ya kutafuta helikopta.

    Hati hiyo ya madai inasema kuwa, kampuni hiyo mpya ilikwenda nje ya nchi na kununua helikopta nne ambazo awali zilikataliwa na wadaiwa kwa madai kwamba hazifai kwa matumzi ya jeshi.

    Aidha, anadai kubaini kwamba, helikopta hizo zimenunuliwa kwa gharama kubwa ya dola milioni 9.263 kwa kila moja, tofauti na bei ambayo mlalamikaji alikuwa amekubaliana na JWTZ kwamba kila helikopta ingenunuliwa kwa dola milioni 4.7 na tofauti hiyo ya gharama hiyo ya manunuzi inailetea taifa hasara ya dola za Marekani milioni 4.563.

    Hata hivyo, kesi hiyo bado haijapangiwa jaji wala tarehe ya kuanza kusikilizwa.

    Taarifa za ununuzi wa helikopta hizo, ziliripotiwa na baadhi ya vyombo vya habari Mei, mwaka huu ambapo zilidai serikali ilikuwa imeingia mkataba wa ununuzi wa helikopta sita kwa bei kubwa ambazo hazifai kwa matumizi ya jeshi.

    Inaelezwa pia kuwa, kampuni iliyoingiza helikopta hizo nchini ni ile iliyonunua ndege mpya ya rais iliyozua mjadala na pia ndiyo iliyoingiza nchini rada ambayo hadi sasa inachunguzwa na Serikali ya Uingereza kwa madai kuwa ilinunuliwa kwa bei kubwa kuliko bei halisi.
