    obvious, absolutely, very clear, no dought, no questions, on that Richmond = Dowans, it inherited Richmond property without any contract
    wakati hiyo contract imevunjwa na Bunge, funny enough eti Dowans wakaingia wakaendelea kuwa na mkataba na Tanesco, how..? why..?
    when..!!!? usishangae unamjua Idrissa Rashid, pure & simple alikuwa Fisadi mwenzao, jibu umepata, Amigos, ciao

    And yet waziri wetu anasimama bila kuogopa kusisitiza kwamba lazima tuwalipe Dowans. Na kama kuna kitu kimeniudhi katika mjadala huu ni pale ambapo sheria ndiyo imetumika kama justification ya kwa nini hatutakiwi kuhoji lolote kuhusu Dowans. MM pls pm me kuna jambo nataka tulonge.

    Very interesting twist. Now Indonesia comes into the equation. So funny owners wa Richmond walikuwa kama ghosts na wa Dowans ni watu wa 'kusadikika' na waziri ametuzuga, naona kanzi kameamua kufunuafunua, na sasa kameona kitu Indonesia. Let kanzi kaendelee na kazi.

    Pia unaweza google Portek na ukifika home page ya Portel which has HQTRs in Singapore, then nenda straight kwenye investors relation,
    hii kampuni haisemi kama inafanya biashara TZ, ila hapo hapo ndio unakuta hii scandal MMJ aliyetupa, thanks MM
