    `No extension of UVUVI House contract deadline`
    BY EDWIN AGOLA
    29th September 2010

    Minister for Livestock Development and Fisheries Dr John Magufuli
    Minister for Livestock Development and Fisheries Dr John Magufuli yesterday turned down a Chinese construction company’s plea for a one month extension of the handover of a public building.

    The no-nonsense minister who was unveiling the foundation of UVUVI House in Dar es Salaam directed that the contracted firm had no option but to respect the contract.
    Dr. Magufuli bluntly told the firm that all the terms in the agreement between the ministry and the Chinese firm were binding.
    “No excuses, the contract remains intact, come rain come sunshine. We want the building by November 30, 2010 as scheduled and not December as you want,” said Magufuli adding that the contractor had no mandate to extend the deadline.
    Tanzanian consultant Charles Barongo of Archqwant services Limited briefed the Minister that the handover would be delayed by one month because the contractor did not begin the work on time, claiming that the month of March fell on rainy season.
    But the Minister dismissed the claim as inconsequential due to the fact that by the time they were signing the pact, they must have taken into consideration the circumstances.
    “Does it mean construction doesn’t take place in places where there is rainfall throughout the year?” queried Magufuli.
    He said he would consult the Contractors Registration Board (CRB) to institute a penalty should the contractor fail to meet the deadline.
    Reacting to the Minister’s directive, consultant Barongo said he was optimistic that they would beat the deadline by doubling their efforts through employing two shifts and working day and night.
    The Chinese Company (Artic) won a tender to build the 3.5bn/- four-storey building that will have 80 offices and 50 parking slots.
    The fund is part of a World Bank loan extended to Tanzania to implement Marine and Coastal Environmental Management Project (MACEMP) undertaken by 16 local Government Authorities (LGAs)
    Meanwhile, Minister Magufuli said the war on illegal fishing was a continuing campaign that called for concerted efforts from Tanzanians of goodwill irrespective of party affiliation.
    He said it was disheartening that while the fishery sub sector was registering encouraging contribution to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) people were resorting to politicking over illegal fishing.
    “It is a pity for a political party leader to claim that he would encourage illegal fishing once he assumes power,” he said without naming the political party.
    According to Magufuli, dynamite fishing remained one of the myriad challenges facing the growth and prosperity of marine and coastal fishing industry in Tanzania.

    Kumbe watu wanaweza kufanya kazi double shifts wakibanwa siyo! Kumbe ni uvivu na umangimeza wa watu na makampuni yao katika maendeleo. Hivi Bandari ya Tanzania wanafanya kazi masaa 24 kweli au ndio saa 11 mwisho? mie utaratibu naoujua ni 11 mwisho, mombasa wanadunga mzigo masaa 24 kuna shifts 3; yaani kama vile call centers a.k.a customer care za makampuni kama ya simu n.k.

    Time is money but it seems this concept does not seem to have reached our leaders.

    You can't help but think if this guy was in charge the Kigamboni Bridge and DART bus system might have been completed by now saving the country millions. This is the kind of guy that might actually get things done instead of just blah blah.

    I agree. CCM has had 50 years to get things done and they have failed miserably. We cannot give them another 5 years. i wish Magufuli would move to CHADEMA.

    Pamoja na kumkubali Dr. Magufuli.............kama yaliyoandikwa hapo juu ni sahihi basi Magufuli kachemka!!

    Wakati ule alipokuwa Ujenzi kulikuwa na "kichwa" i.e Marehemu Mujungi alikuwa ni mshauri wake wa karibu.............inakuwaje utoe tamko halafu useme utaomba ushauri kutoka CRB.............eti ku-insitute a penalty!!...............kawaida kwenye contracts kama hizi kunakuwepo na Clause/s ya/za penalty/ies na utaitumia kulingana na Condition zilizomo and not otherwise............kama mkandarasi akichelewa kumaliza kazi kuna penalties zake..............extension of time kwenye contract yeyote ya ujenzi mazingira yake yameongelewa..............kwenye contract zingine hata muda wa kufanya kazi unakuwa spelled out...............

    My worry kufanya kazi za shift ni QUALITY of end product................tayari binafsi nime-experience matatizo meengi sana na Wachina with their sub-standard works.......ukiunganisha na poor supervision (Hongo/Rushwa).............sijui tunataka nini mwishowe..............

    In short Dr. Magufuli kachemka...............alichemka kule Mwanza na bado hajajifunza................umwamba wakati mwingine HAUFAI.......

    Afuate mkataba, akijifanya kwenda nje ya mkata itakula kwake (kwa serikali). Extension of time huwa inakuwa stipulated ktk mikataba. wacheki hizo clauses zinasemaje, kama zinaendana na hizo sababu alizotoa mkandarasi, basi ubabe hapo hautakiwi, itakula kwake.

    ....It is wrong ku-impose a WILL when you have a Contract...................Ukitaka kuonyesha kuwa uko serious......unatakiwa kufuata mkataba unasemaje PERIOD..........amechemka kama ifuatavyo

    1. kama yaliyoandikwa yamenukuliwa kwa usahihi..................ina maana amekataa extension of time na kulazimisha wachina wamalize kazi katika muda uliopangwa............technically nita-assume anasema, ata-impose penalty kama wachina hawatamaliza kazi yao katika muda wa mkataba............however, Project Manager (the architect, supposedly acted impartially) anamwambia Dr. Magufuli kulikuwa na delays kutokana hali ambayo haikuweza kuzuilika............hivi vitu huwa defined kwenye mkataba na mkandarasi ana haki ya kuongezewa muda depending na determination/evaluation ya Project Manager
    .....yeye Dr. Magufuli anasema wafanye kazi kwa shift.............hapo napo kuna technicalities zake......inabidi uwe muangalifu....usije ukawa una-ipose kipengele cha "acceleration of works" ambavyo vinaweza kumrudi...........

    2. Dr. kaamua kulazimisha mkandarasi halafu anasema ataomba ushauri kutoka CRB............alitakiwa aombe ushauri wa kimkataba kwanza ndio......... atoe maagizo......otherwise huko ni kuchemka.....inaonyesha hajui mkataba unasema nini..............

    3. Hizi kazi za ujenzi zina muda depending na type of activity and specifications bounded to it............hutakiwi kuforce tu mambo eti kwa kuwa wewe ni No Nonsense person........huko ni kuchemka

    Haya ni baadhi ya mapungufu ya ndugu/rafiki yangu mchapakazi Dr. Magufuli...............kuna hatua kadhaa alichukua huko nyuma zimei-cost serikali..........lakini ndio hivyo tena wakati mwingine tunakubali kirahisi kuwa kipenda roho..........halafu tunakubali kula nyama mbichi.........

    Hivi jamani hizo Contract huko bongo CRB wanaingiaje tena kwenye Condition of Contracts za projects, manake mambo ya mvua na vitu vinavyo affect project huwa viko stipulated clearly, i.e hata formula za kudetermine kiasi cha rainfalls na siku za kuwaentitled for extension of time zipo na hakuna kuingiza politics kwenye mambo haya, ama sivyo itakula kwa serikali!!! Extension of time is a contractual matter na mwanasiasa au CRB mie nafikiri hawahusiki hapo kama sababu zipo ni valid zinazotolewa na contractor na zinaendana na what the contract stipulates!

    hajui project management huyu. mbona risks ni kitu cha kawaida tu kwenye project? Extension of time without cost to the employer has no effect whatsoever. Aende tena skuli

    Hivi ni porject % zinakamilika within time. nadhani ni below 30 %.

    Binafsi Kwa mwezi project kama hiyo sioni kama kuna tatizo kubw sana. Lakini nasema hivi sababu mimi siko upande wa mteja wala wa kandarasi.

    Lakini kisiasa na kimajukumu alichosema magufuli ni sahihi kabisa .Kama mteja huwezi tu kumkubalia mkandarasi ata angesema itachelewa wiki moja bado mkandarasi alitakiwa kufanya consideation ya risk variables zote. Na vipi kama among the factor zilizofanya washinde tender ni muda waliopropose kukamilisha project?

    Tena kuna mikataba mingine ina kipengele kwa kila siku mradi utakaochelewa kukabidhiwa kiasi fulani che fedha kinakatwa katika malipo ya mkandarasi. Lakini kuwa na kipngele hiki ubaya wake kunafanya hata ghaama ya mkataba kuwa mkubwa zaidi.

    Magufuli is right na hata hao wajenzi wana haki ya kupewa nyongeza ya mwezi.

    Hivi Tanzania kuna taasisi inayoshughulika na mambo ya arbitration za mikataba.??
