    Ailing ATCL in posh car scam

    Air Tanzania Company Limited (ATCL), surviving on government subsidy, is under probe for alleged purchase of more than 15 luxury vehicles, for its top bosses for which it also sought tax exemption.

    Reliable information from ATCL alleged that the money to buy the vehicles for the company’s top bosses was part of the rescue package from the government and that apparently the decision was made by the management in collaboration with the Board.

    The actual value of the luxury, four-wheel drive vehicles, locally referred to as ‘Mashangingi’, is yet to be established, but experts say it is likely to be over 2billion/-, at the current price of 120million/- for a Landcruiser model imported from Japan.

    Infrastructure Development ministry Permanent secretary Engineer Omar Chambo, confirmed the purchase of 15 to 20 Landcruisers from Japan, saying the ministry was investigating the matter.

    He also confirmed the allegations that the vehicles were for the use of the company’s top bosses.

    He said he had ordered the relevant documents from ATCL and that the ministry’s auditors were working on them to establish the source of the funds to buy the vehicles and the people involved in the scam.

    He termed the purchase as irresponsible in light of the state of the airline company, which has been surviving on government subsidy since its establishment. “We will take action against the people involved in the purchase. We are not ready to entertain this behaviour, ” he said.

    Chambo said everyone was aware of the state of ATCL and the measures being taken to rescue it.

    Tanzania Revenue Authority officials who asked for anonymity, confirmed to The Guardian that the posh vehicles were lying at the port, saying they were now lined up for auction after efforts by officials from the airline’s management and board to secure tax exemption failed.

    When asked whether he was aware that the vehicles were lined up for auctioning by TRA, Chambo said he did not know of any such move, but promised to follow up the matter.

    Sources at the Treasury told this paper that ATCL continued to be a taxpayer’s burden, as it continued to operate at a loss, relying on government subsidy. The source expressed serious concern at the possible misuse of the subsidy the company was drawing from the Treasury, calling for urgent investigation of the use of the funds.

    The source however declined to say how much the government has so far spent on ATCL.

    Commenting on the status of the company, Chambo said negotiations between the government and the Chinese firm which has shown interest to invest in ATCL are still on and going well.

    He explained that the government was being careful in the negotiations to avoid a repeat of the mistakes made in the pact with the South African Airways.

    The TRA Director of Taxpayers Education, Evod Mmanda told this paper that he was not aware of any ATCL vehicles lined up for auctioning, adding that when it came to auctioning, it was not their concern who the vehicle belonged to.

    “We normally focus on getting the due revenue. We don’t care who the vehicle belongs to. We run auctions regularly, so it is hard to establish which auction involves whose cars” , he said.

    A spot check by The Guardian at the Dar es Salaam port established that the vehicles were still lying there. No official was however ready to show this reporter where they were being kept, but one of the port workers hinted: “We know where they are, but we can’t show you. One or two of them has been cleared” he alleged.

    Hili swala la ununuzi wa 'mashangingi' PM na JK wamelipigia kelele kwa muda sasa, kama article ya leo Daily News inavyosema.

    Hata hivyo wito wa PM kupunguza manunuzi ya mashangingi yaelekea hayafuatwi, kama ni amri ya serikali basi haina nguvu kwani hazitekelezwi na maofisa wa serikali. Hii yaweza kuwa dalili kwamba serikali haina nia ya kweli kuhusu hili, kwani imeshindwa kusimamia manunuzi ya haya magari.

    Sheria za manunuzi zinaeleweka, wahusika waliofanya maamuzi ya kununua haya magari wakati ndege za shirika haziruki wanajulikana. Hili la kufanya uchunguzi ni kupoteza muda tuu, maofisa wa ATCL waliohusika na manunuzi hayo wawajibishwe bila kupoteza muda. Mie moja kwa moja ningeanza na DG wa ATCL

    Pinda pours scorn on lust for big cars


    DAILY NEWS Reporter, 28th September 2009

    THE Prime Minister, Mr Mizengo Pinda, has deplored what he termed as increasing tendency by some government officials, to compete in purchasing the most expensive luxurious vehicles, instead of using state resources to fight poverty in the country.

    Mr Pinda observed in Dodoma yesterday that for Tanzania to make positive strides in fighting poverty in the country, government officials must cut back on buying expensive cars and instead focus state’s money on alleviating poverty in rural areas.

    “I was in India recently and I was surprised that ministers are using very ordinary vehicles. Here it is different, although we are very poor, we are competing in buying the most expensive vehicles. Ministers, Members of Parliament, Permanent Secretaries, regional commissioners, municipal directors, and administrative officers are driving luxurious vehicles,” Premier Pinda lamented during his meeting with livestock stakeholders in Dodoma.

    Mr Pinda said vehicles driven by the government officials fall in the range of 100m/- to 230m/-, the money that could have been used to make tremendous strides in fighting poverty in the country.

    He directed that purchasing of vehicles for government officials should be revisited, calling for ministers to drive Toyota Hardtop which are less expensive than ‘Mashangingi’ and conducive to the country’s terrain.

    “If we decide to implement this move, we can save money that will go into other areas in dire need of financial assistance like the livestock sector,” he said.

    Explaining how livestock industries can be turned around to be productive, Premier Pinda stressed the importance of investing the little resource available to livestock, agriculture and fishery industries.

    “Without changing the current system that is not productive, we will not be able to help farmers or livestock keepers to be productive in what they do,” said Mr Pinda, adding that livestock experts available should also be utilised to bring reforms in the sector.

    He directed a fresh look into the livestock programme, with the purpose of overhauling it and making it more result oriented. He directed for a meeting between government and researchers in the country before the end of the year.

    Among issues the government wants to find out from the researchers, are challenges that they face in their field of work. The three-day meeting was attended by livestock stakeholders from Dodoma, Singida, Arusha, Shinyanga, Manyara, Mara, Mwanza, Tabora, Mbeya, Kagera, Morogoro, Coast and Lindi regions.

    Kwa jinsi ijnavyoonekana ni kitu kipya na hayahusiani na yale ya wali, maana inaonyesha kuwa haya yaliagizwa baada ya kupata ile bail out package ya serikal juzi juzi hapa

    Nadhani hii ilikwua ni fursa ya serikali kuonyesdha ukali wake kwa viongozi wasiojali maslahi ya taifa... haiwezekani shirika linachungulia kaburi halafu viongozi wake wajali zaidi mashangingi kuliko uhai wa shirika

    Mpita Njia,
    Waende Ethiopia wajifunze jinsi ya kuendesha shirika la ndege kwa faida.
    Ethiopia Airlines is 100% owned by the Ethiopia government but it is run like a business enterprise. Husikii maafisa wake wakijinunulia mashangingi. Wanapata bonasi when the enterprise make money.
