    Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Energy and Minerals, David Jairo anasema kuwa discussions zimefikia final stage “Discussions have reached the final stage, and we expect to unveil more details on the acquisition of the Dowans plant today,”

    Wakati kwenye hiyo website ya SYMBION inasema kazi ilianza August mwaka jana "True partnership drives everything we do. The result has been successful transmission line, substation, and training projects in the challenging construction environments of Iraq and Afghanistan and new work in Tanzania that began in August 2010."

    Akina January wako wapi? Mbona hatukuisikia hii SYMBION miezi ile tulipokuwa tunalia na kuilipa DOWANS?

    Halafu ukiangalia profile za owners http://www.symbion-power.com/symbion/team.html wamekaa ki CIA CIA tu....kuna kuzalisha umeme kweli hapo?

    - Chairman wa hiyo SYMBION power holdings ana distinguished military career as an Officer in the Scotts Guards and for the British Special Air Services (SAS).

    -CEO wa kampuni yupo hivi Since 2003 Paul has been at the forefront of US wartime contracting efforts.

    - Chairman wa african branch/tanzania nae He also served as Special Assistant to President Clinton in charge of African Affairs at the national Security Council.

    Kwa hiyo na umeme tunaupataje tenaa?

    Inaonekana sekta ya kuzalisha umeme Tanzania inapendwa na makampuni yanayoongozwa na waliopitia ktk masuala ya ulinzi na usalama. Dowans Ali Hadaiwi alikuwa brigedia wa jeshi la Omani akishikilia masuala ya ulinzi wa Sultani wa Omani.

    Hawa Symbion Power viongozi wake wa juu mmoja ana nishani ya kutukuka kwa ujasiri wake wa kutumikia vikosi maalumu vya Uingereza na mwingine alikuwa mshauri wa masuala ya usalama ktk baraza la ulinzi huko USA.

    Ambassador Joseh Wison - siyo ambaye wakati wa Iraq war ilipoanza aliandika ripoti iliyoumbua serikali ya George W Bush kuhusu madai yao ya uranium in Niger? Baadae serikali ya Dubya ilijibu mapigo kwa kufichua kuwa mke wake Wilson ni CIA agent. Kumradhi kama nimekosea ...

    Nadhani tunamwongelea same Joe (Joseph C.) Wilson? SOMA HAPO CHINI:

    In the summer of 2003, former ambassador Joseph Wilson wrote an opinion piece in the New York Times that accused the Bush Administration of deliberately misleading the public about the possibility of Iraq having sought nuclear weapons material from Niger. Shortly thereafter, conservative columnist Robert Novak published a column noting that Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, worked for the CIA. The CIA cried foul -- insisting that a covert agent had been unmasked.

    Karl Rove and Lewis (Scooter) Libby were questioned extensively regarding the unveiling of Valerie Plame as an undercover CIA operative. As the original grand jury wound down in 2005, speculation inside the beltway widely linked both Rove and Libby with an organized attempt to undermine Joseph Wilson's story about Iraq, Niger and uranium. At the time, lawyers suggested that the crimes of obstruction of justice and perjury (felony) were probable.

    Kuhusu CEO wao nae ana 'background in Africa':

    COMMISSION ON WARTIME CONTRACTING
    TESTIMONY OF PAUL HINKS, CEO, SYMBION POWER LLC
    JULY 26, 2010
    My name is Paul Hinks. I am the Chief Executive Officer of Symbion Power LLC, a U.S.
    power engineering and construction firm that was formed in 2005 specifically to
    undertake electrical reconstruction work in Iraq and Afghanistan. I am grateful for your
    invitation to appear before this distinguished Commission, and to assist you and your
    staff with its important work on Wartime Contracting issues. Your hearing today on the
    subject of Subcontractors is aptly titled, "Subcontracting: Who's Minding the Store?" I
    am here to share with you my experience and views as both a Prime Contractor and as
    a Subcontractor, having managed two different companies in Iraq and Afghanistan since
    2003. Because of this, I am presenting this testimony in the first person. Before giving
    you my views, I will provide you with a brief background of my experience.
    I have spent my entire working life as a contractor. Initially I studied and trained in the
    United Kingdom for a state power company. In the early eighties I lived and worked in
    Africa where I was responsible for the construction of a large array of projects that
    included power plants, transmission and distribution lines and substations.
    For the past
    29 years I have carried out work in developing countries, some of which have been
    conflict zones, although many are now stable and secure. These include Zimbabwe,
    Mozambique, Angola and Uganda. There was a time 20 years or so ago when building
    a project in Mozambique was akin to working in Iraq in the period after 2003. I was in
    Uganda during the civil conflict there, hiding under a bed as gun battles raged outside
    the house. I lived in East Africa for 10 years, during which I traveled to work in other
    African countries in the region. In those days the African National Congress (ANC) of
    South Africa built and maintained large camps in Tanzania and Zambia for thousands of
    their exiled supporters. I installed power systems to one of those camps.
    Today the
    ANC is the government of South Africa.
    In 2003 I went to work in Iraq for the world's largest transmission line company, KEC
    International. I worked there full time for almost one year. During that time I was
    responsible for the construction of five major 400kV and 132kV transmission line
    projects. In all cases we were a Subcontractor to some of the major U.S. Prime
    Contractors. In almost all cases we did everything, from the design and engineering to
    procurement and installation. We were turnkey Subcontractors with very minimal
    management and oversight by the Prime Contractors.

    Toka gazeti la Mwananchi:

    Hata hivyo, habari zaidi kuhusu mauzo hayo hazikutolewa kwa kuwa Dowans imepewa nguvu ya sheria (nani katoa nguvu hii ya sheria!?) ya kuzuia mtu kupewa siri za ndani za mipango hiyo bila idhini yake.

    "Makubaliano yetu yamebanwa na vipengele vinavyozuia kuelezwa ovyo hadharani bila ruhusa ya muuzaji," alisema Mtendaji Mkuu wa Symbion Power, Paul Hinks. (Mhhhh! Wanaficha nini!?)

    Chairman, Symbion Power Africa

    Ambassador (ret.) Joseph Wilson
    Ambassador (ret.) Joseph Wilson serves as the Chairman of Symbion Power, Africa. Ambassador Wilson has extensive experience in Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. As an American diplomat, he served as Ambassador to Gabon and Sao Tome and Principe in the administrations of Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. He also served as Special Assistant to President Clinton in charge of African Affairs at the national Security Council. In addition to Gabon and Sao Tome and Principe, Ambassador Wilson also served in Niger, Togo, South Africa, Burundi, and Congo (Brazzaville).

    Timeline: The CIA Leak Case

    [​IMG] Reuters I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, is the only administration official charged or convicted in the CIA leak case. On July 2, 2007, President Bush commuted the part of Libby's sentence that involved prison time.

    [​IMG] Reuters After traveling to Niger, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson said some evidence used to make the case for war against Iraq was exaggerated. Wilson and his wife, Valerie Plame, claim that administration officials retaliated by outing Plame as a CIA agent.

    [​IMG] Jim Bourg/Reuters White House political adviser Karl Rove was never charged in the CIA leak case. Matt Cooper, formerly of Time magazine, told a grand jury that Rove leaked to him that Ambassador Wilson's wife worked at the CIA.

    Jury Selection to Begin in Libby Trial Jan. 16, 2007

    [​IMG] Former New York Times reporter Judith Miller testified before the grand jury after receiving what she calls a voluntary and uncoerced waiver from Libby.


    July 2, 2007
    Syndicated columnist Robert Novak identified Valerie Plame as a CIA operative in a column published in July 2003 - not long after Plame's husband, former ambassador Joseph Wilson, criticized the White House for exaggerating evidence in its push to justify going to war against Iraq. Novak said two unnamed administration sources had identified Plame to him.

    That revelation sparked a two-year-long investigation by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald into who disclosed the covert agent's identity. In October 2005, Fitzgerald indicted I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, then-chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney, on charges of obstruction of justice, false statement and perjury in the CIA leak case. Libby resigned from his post and pleaded not guilty to the five counts against him. But a jury found Libby guilty on four of the five counts, convicting him of obstruction, perjury and lying to the FBI. Libby was sentenced to 30 months in prison and fined $250,000.

    However, on July 2, 2007, President Bush stepped into the politically charged case by commuting Libby's prison sentence. Libby will not have to serve time behind bars, but he must still pay the fine and serve two years probation.

    Following is a timeline of how the CIA leak case has evolved:

    February 2002: Former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson travels to Niger at the CIA's request to check for evidence that Iraq bought uranium "yellowcake" from the African country that could be used for production of a nuclear weapon.
    Jan. 28, 2003: President Bush delivers his State of the Union address. In the speech he includes the following sentence: "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa." Those 16 words contradicted what Wilson had reported upon his return from Niger to check out the claim. Months later they would be retracted by the White House.
    March 20, 2003: The invasion of Iraq begins.
    May 6, 2003: The New York Times publishes a column by Nicholas Kristof disputing the accuracy of the 16 words in the president's State of the Union address. The column reports that, following up on a request from the vice president's office, an unnamed ambassador investigated the allegations regarding Iraq's efforts to buy uranium from Niger. Kristoff writes that in early 2002, the ambassador had reported to the CIA and State Department that the allegations were unequivocally wrong.
    July 6, 2003: Wilson's op-ed column, "What I Didn't Find in Africa," is published in The New York Times. In it he concludes, "some of the intelligence related to Iraq's nuclear weapons program was twisted to exaggerate the Iraqi threat."
    July 7, 2003: President Bush boards Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington en route to Dakar, Senegal. It is the start of a weeklong tour of the continent that become overshadowed by questions about alleged Iraqi WMD.
    Also onboard is a top-secret briefing book containing a memo prepared by the State Department identifying Valerie Wilson (Plame's married name) as a CIA officer and as the wife of former Ambassador Joseph Wilson.
    July 9, 2003: Speaking to a White House press pool in Pretoria, South Africa, the second stop on the president's Africa tour, Press Secretary Ari Fleischer says the State of the Union address should not have included the reference to Iraqi attempts to acquire uranium from Niger. Fleischer says: "With the advantage of hindsight, it's known now what was not known by the White House prior to the speech. This information should not have risen to the level of a presidential speech."
    July 14, 2003: Robert Novak, in his syndicated commentary, reveals that Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, is a CIA operative. Novak attributes the information to "two senior administration officials."
    July 17, 2003: Time magazine publishes an online article by Matthew Cooper, Massimo Calabresi, and John F. Dickerson indicating that government officials had disclosed Plame's identity to them.
    July 22, 2003: At a White House news briefing, McClellan, when asked about the administration leaking Plame's name, states: "That is not the way this president or this White House operates."
    Sept. 14, 2003: Vice President Cheney, on NBC's Meet the Press, is asked if he had been briefed on Wilson's findings when Wilson returned from Niger. Cheney responds: "No. I don't know Joe Wilson. I've never met Joe Wilson." Cheney adds moments later, "I don't know who sent Joe Wilson. He never submitted a report that I ever saw when he came back.
    Sept. 16, 2003: McClellan calls "totally ridiculous" the allegation that presidential adviser Karl Rove was the source of the leak.
    Sept. 28, 2003: CIA Director George J. Tenet calls on the Justice Department to investigate the leak.
    Sept. 29, 2003: McClellan reiterates his earlier defense of Rove, adding that he had spoken to Rove about the leak.
    Sept. 30, 2003: The Justice Department launches a full criminal investigation into the leaking of Plame's name. President Bush, speaking to reporters in Chicago, says, "If there is a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is. And if the person has violated the law, the person will be taken care of..."
    Oct. 24, 2003: FBI agents begin interviewing White House administration officials about the leak. Interviewees include Karl Rove and Scott McClellan.

    Aug. 12, 2004: New York Times reporter Judith Miller is subpoenaed by a grand jury.
    Aug. 24, 2004: The order to jail Cooper is canceled after he submits to questioning by Justice Department prosecutors.
    Oct. 7, 2004: Miller is held in contempt of court for refusing to name confidential sources. Miller has not published any articles about the Plame case. Judge Hogan stays the order pending appeals.
    Oct. 13, 2004: Cooper is again held in contempt of court for refusing to identify a confidential source who informed him about Plame's identity.

    July 10, 2005: Newsweek cites Rove as Cooper's source for the leak.
    July 11, 2005: During a contentious White House press briefing, McClellan is asked to reconcile his statements from 2003 that Rove had no involvement in the leak with new revelations that Rove had spoken to reporters about Plame. McClellan refuses to discuss the matter, citing the ongoing investigation.
    July 12, 2005: The White House says President Bush continues to have confidence in Rove.
    July 15, 2005: Rove attorney Robert Luskin tells the Associated Press that Rove made three appearances before the grand jury and answered all questions. Luskin also says he has been assured that his client is not a target of the investigation.
    July 17, 2005: In Time magazine, Matt Cooper discusses his testimony before the grand jury investigating the leak. He says Rove never referred to Valerie Plame by name, but that Cooper did learn from that conversation with Rove that Wilson's wife worked for the CIA and was involved in WMD issues.
    July 18, 2005: President Bush, during a White House appearance with India's Prime Minister Singh is asked if, regardless of whether a crime was committed, he still intends to fire anyone found to be involved in the CIA leak case. The president replies that if someone "committed a crime, they will no longer work in my administration."
    Aug. 4, 2005: Novak swears in disgust and walks off the set of CNN's program Inside Politics in response to a comment from Democratic strategist James Carville. Carville tells viewers that he thinks Novak is trying to "show these right-wingers that he's got a backbone." The two were discussing U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris (R-FL), and Carville's comment was unrelated to the CIA leak investigation. But CNN correspondent Ed Henry said he was about to ask Novak about the CIA leak case when the columnist walked off the set.
    Aug. 5, 2005: Novak apologizes for walking off the set of Inside Politics but says it had "absolutely nothing" to do with the CIA leak probe. "I was sorry he said that," Novak said of CNN's Ed Henry.
    Sept. 29, 2005: Reporter Judith Miller is released from the Alexandria Detention Center in Virginia. Editors at The New York Times say she reached a deal with U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald to testify. The editors say her source in the leak probe offered assurances that he wanted her to testify and was not coerced into releasing her from a promise of confidentiality.
    Sept. 30, 2005: The Times identifies Miller's source as I. Lewis Libby, Cheney's chief of staff. In Washington, Miller testifies before the grand jury. Afterwards, she declines to confirm that Libby was her source, but says the source sent her a letter and called her in prison. "I concluded from this that my source genuinely wanted me to testify," she says.
    Oct. 14, 2005: Presidential adviser Karl Rove makes his fourth appearance before the federal grand jury. Rove's appearance was voluntary, but at the request of Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald. In a statement afterwards, Rove's lawyer Robert Luskin said Fitzgerald "has not advised Mr. Rove that he is a target of the investigation and affirmed that he has made no decision concerning charges. The special counsel has indicated that he does not anticipate the need for Mr. Rove's further cooperation."
    Oct. 16, 2005: In a New York Times article recounting her testimony before the grand jury, Judith Miller writes that notes of her conversations with Lewis Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, suggested that the two had discussed Plame's job at the CIA but not her name. Miller wrote Plame's name in the same notebook she used when taking notes during her interviews with Libby, but said she cannot remember who gave her the CIA operative's name.
    Oct. 25, 2005: Citing lawyers connected to the case, The New York Times reports that Lewis Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, first learned about Plame from a conversation with Cheney in the weeks before her identity became public in 2003. Libby's notes from that conversation, which took place June 12, 2003, contradict Libby's testimony to a federal grand jury that he first learned about Plame from journalists, lawyers told the paper. The previously undisclosed notes are now in the possession of prosecutors.
    Oct. 28, 2005: Vice presidential adviser I. Lewis Libby is indicted on obstruction of justice, false statement and perjury charges in the CIA leak case. Libby resigns as Vice President Cheney's chief of staff.
    Nov. 3, 2005: Libby pleads not guilty in federal court to the five-count indictment against him.
    Nov. 15, 2005: Washington Post editor Bob Woodward testifies that a "senior administration official" told him about Valerie Plame and her job at the CIA nearly a month before she was first named in Robert Novak's column. The revelation would make the source, who Woodward refused to identify, the first official to reveal Plame's identity to a reporter.
    April 26, 2006: Presidential adviser Karl Rove testifies for a fifth time before a grand jury. Fitzgerald says he is investigating whether Rove lied or obstructed justice in failing to initially disclose his conversation with Time magazine reporter Matt Cooper. Rove blamed a faulty memory.
    June 13, 2006: A lawyer for Rove says his client has been informed by prosecutors he won't be charged with any crimes in the investigation, ending months of speculation.
    January 6, 2007: Libby's criminal trial begins.
    February 21, 2007: Jury receives case for deliberation.
    March 6, 2007: Jury returns guilty verdict on four of five counts, convicting Libby of obstruction, perjury and lying to the FBI.
    June 5, 2007: Libby is sentenced to 30 months in prison and fined $250,000.
    June 14, 2007: U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton denies request to delay Libby's sentence.
    July 2, 2007: A federal appeals court rejects Libby's request to remain free on bail while pursuing appeals - meaning Libby would likely have to report to prison soon. Hours later, President Bush commutes Libby's prison sentence, leaving the $250,000 fine and two years probation intact. "I respect the jury's verdict," Bush says in a statement. "But I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive."

    Kwanza huyu Lord Richard Westbury ni Mwingereza lakini he has had a very colourful career kama ambavyo profile yake ya kule Symbion inavyosema:

    Sasa tunamove on kwa no 2 :

    Paul Hinks

    [​IMG]

    Founder Paul Hinks is the driving force behind the company. He has spent his life in the power industry where he has been responsible for the construction of power plants, transmission lines and substations. His career spans 30 years and in that period, he has worked in the USA, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Since 2003 Paul has been at the forefront of US wartime contracting efforts. Paul is a member of the Bretton Woods Committee and serves on the Board of Directors of the Corporate Council on Africa.



    Lakini the most interesting of them all ni huyu....na hasa baada ya kuona jina lake nikajiuliza inamaana Valerie Palme alikuwa Dar jana?

    Chairman, Symbion Power Africa

    Ambassador (ret.) Joseph Wilson
    Ambassador (ret.) Joseph Wilson serves as the Chairman of Symbion Power, Africa. Ambassador Wilson has extensive experience in Africa, the Middle East, and Europe.

    Hiyo ndio Profile iliopo Public lakini ukweli ni kuwa :

    Jamaa ndio yulee wa ile YELLOW CAKE ya NIGER kama mnakumbuka in the run up to Iraq war enzi za Bush.....

    Joseph Charles Wilson IV (born November 6, 1949) is a former United States diplomat best known for his 2002 trip to
    Niger to investigate allegations thatSaddam Hussein was attempting to purchase yellowcake uranium; his New York Times op ed piece, "What I Didn't Find in Africa";[SUP][1][/SUP] and the subsequent "outing" of his wife Valerie Plame as a CIA agent.

    That said, sioni taabu kwa nini wasitatue tatizo letu la umeme...kama sheria za nchi zimefuatwa

    At the moment I care-less about the "profiles" - Tumeshapoteza sana na kwa hiyo hata kama kuna kampuni ya vichaa inayoweza kuzalisha umeme na izalishe - it does not matter anymore!

    Safi sana. Ili mradi watuletee umeme kwa bei nzuri hata wangekua intelijensia wa kutoka nchi gani waje tu, intelijensia yetu (kama ipo) basi na itakumbana nao ktk mambo mengine.

    Ukisoma kitabu cha 'The Economic Hitman' by John Perkins

    Utapata a clue on how the US is controling the world economy especially the countries with rich natural resources

    Wanaanza kwa kuja na kampuni za umeme

    Alafu wanakuletea forecasts zao jinsi gani nchi itafaidika from a massive energy investment they are planning to make

    At the end mnasaini mikataba ya kunyonywa. Ukikataa wanakuua (they Kill the President or any one opposing) ukitaka kujua how nenda ukasome.

    Its a very interesting book.
