    We Fisadi Mkono acha hizo za kuropokaropoka!...What about Fisadi Mkapa, Fisadi Chenge, Fisadi Lowassa, Fisadi RA, Fisadi Mzindakaya, Fisadi Mramba and many others mafisadi including yourself? Why you did not imitate Ballali and fled the country due to bad press? or are you planning to do so in the near future?

    Relatives cry foul over demise

    By Mkinga Mkinga
    THE CITIZEN

    Relatives of the late Daudi Ballali are crying foul over the death of the former Bank of Tanzania (BoT) governor.

    However, a prominent city lawyer and Musoma rural MP, Mr Nimrod Mkono, is blaming the press for driving him out of the country.

    Mr Ballali's younger brother, who spoke to The Citizen yesterday in Dar es Salaam, said the family received the news with shock as they had been assured of his steady recovery.

    I'm crying for my beloved brother who has been killed, but God knows, he said while confirming that the Dar es Salaam relatives were informed about the death on Monday.

    He blamed local authorities, saying Mr Ballali's involvement in government business was to blame for his early demise.

    The relative, who preferred to remain anonymous, said his brother has suffered bad fate to allegedly safeguard selfish interests of those in positions of authority.

    He, however, could not give clear reasons why he felt the government was to blame for Mr Ballali's death.

    He suggested that, just as it has been widely rumored since the former governor went to hospital, he could have been poisoned to hide information about the massive Sh133 billion External Payments Arrears Account (EPA) and other scandals at BoT.

    He said his brother would have strived to clear his name against the various corruption allegations directed at him. He was confident he would clear his name of accusations leveled against him before the public.

    Yesterday Mr Ballali's successor at the BoT, Prof Beno Ndulu, issued a statement confirming the death of the former governor. The statement revealed that Mr Ballali died on Friday in Boston, USA.

    The bank received the sad information on Tuesday night.

    We at the bank join the late Mr Ballali's family in mourning his death and pray to God that his soul may rest in eternal peace, Prof Ndulu said.

    According to him, the deceased served the bank as its governor from 14th July, 1998 to 8th January, 2008.

    The central bank was not able to explain what caused the death.

    Mr Mkono, who was early in February reported by our sister paper, Mwananchi, to have visited Ballali at a hospital in Boston, said his death was sad.

    He said if he was asked to blame anybody on it, he would mention the press for accelerating it.

    If you shout on a thief and he starts running, and at the end gets beaten to death, we won't blame those who killed him, but the ones who shouted that he was a thief, he said.

    He said the media has been shouting on several scams from BoT which might have caused his death.

    What Mkono said doesn't pass a litmus test. So now the media is to blame ; only in Tanzania this type of reasoning still exist. What about CCM leaders who colluded with Balali in embezzling public funds "Allegedly". Mkono is so myopic and always trying to find a way to spin things.

    Mr. Mkono is one of the major beneficiaries of the whole saga.

    Watu waku blame for Balali's demise ni mafisadi wakubwa nchini.Mimi nakubaliana na ndugu wanayosema alipewa sumu maana nchi hii siku hizi imekaa kimafia mafia.Mungu anajua kilichotokea na kila mtu atajibu madhambi ya ke hapa duniani.Tusubiri tu the truth will come out.Mafisadi wakubwa wanafikiri wako safe lakini mkono wa Mungu ni mrefu utawafikia tu. Kama Balali alikula alikula makombo ya mafisadi wakubwa.

    Now it is the press fault? Mkono acts like a little toddler who plays its your fault game. Balali was behind the EPA, and there was no way you could separate Balali and EPA nightmare. So, the job of the media is to inform citizen. It doesn't matter whether the topic was sensitive or not.

    Ndugu wa Marehemu knows ukweli? why couldn't they come and explain to the public what happened then? If they believe there were no connection between Balali and EPA, they need to come public and separate the two. Other than that every one will believe what he/she thinks its fair to believe.

    Fisadi Mkono anatuambia nini? Badala ya kusema wao ndio wanahusika kwa kushindwa kumshauri Ballali kwamba wizi wao una arobaini zake?

    Huyu Ballali naye kweli anataka tumwamini ameonewa kwa kumpa siri Mkono?

    PR yake imefeli mpaka dakika ya mwisho. I hope watendaji Tanzania watajifunza kwamba huko kutumiwa na CCM kunaweza kuwacost maisha yao.

    Mbona Prof B. Ndulu Anasema Kafia Boston? Na Kuna Watu Kwenye Thread Nyingine Wanasema Wana Reliable Source Kwamba Amefia Georgetown Na Wengine Wisconsin Sijui? Hili Changa La Macho. Hakuna Hata Ndugu Yake Mmoja Anayetaka Kutajwa Jina. Bado Siamini Kama Balali Katutoka

    balali has himself to blame for his death!
    sidhani kama alishikiwa mtutu wa bunduki katika deal la kwanza alotakiwa afanye na serikali. angejua hawezi kufanya ufisadi angejiuzulu na kazi angepewa mtu mwngine.
    tusitafute watu wa kublame kwenye hili.
    alicheza mchezo mchafu na mafisadi, wamemmaliza kwa kuwa alikubali kucheza nao hapo mwanzo

    Mkono ana tofauti na mafisadi mnategemea amraumu nani zaidi ya wenye haki kuwa wamesababisha wakati anajua kuwa hata kwake yeye balali alikuwa tishio kwani alipinda sheria na kumlipa yeye mabilioni bila huruma, inawezekana mkono nae anamkono wake kwenye kifo cha balali.
