    21 March 2011


    Dar Es Salaam — A trial magistrate has accused the police of showing double standards by failure to enforce court orders to arrest a senior government official over contempt of court.
    Ilala District Court Magistrate Wilberforce Lwhago, said the Ilala regional police commander, Mr Faustine Shilogile and his juniors at the Msimbazi police station in Dar es Salaam, were in breach of the law for not obeying the orders to arrest Ilala Municipal Council director Gabriel Fuime.


    On Friday, Mr Lwhago was expected to give a ruling on whether or not Mr Fuime should be sent to prison after nearly two futile weeks of waiting for his arraignment as directed by the court.
    The warrant for his arrest was successfully sought on March 1, following an application by the Tanzania Environmental Cleanliness Association.
    The director was being sought over a decision to terminate a garbage collection contract by the association against orders of the same court, but the police claim they have failed to trace him.
    "This court is not amused by the conduct of police officers who are supposed to enforce this warrant. I have failed to understand why the culprit has not been brought to court since I issued the orders," Mr Luhwago said.


    Terming the police excuses as baseless, the magistrate referred to last week's incident where the police managed to arrest suspects who killed two police officers in Shinyanga and escaped from custody in less than 36 hours.
    "We all know the police arrested two of the culprits in under 36 hours after the killings. I don't figure out why it has taken over one week to arrest the director who lives a half an hour walk from this court," said the magistrate.
    He added: "Politics must be avoided in the courts. It is unacceptable that arrest warrants are always enforced against small traders and bhang smokers, while those in authorities commit graver offences," he said.
    The director is embroiled in a case with the cleaning company which was last November ordered to restrain him from terminating its garbage collection contract in Upanga East and West sections of the city in favour of another firm.
    When the matter was called last Tuesday, the prosecution told the magistrate that the police were yet to trace the director. Mr Lwhago then issued a stern warning to the police against defying court orders.
    The magistrate insisted that Mr Fuime be brought in person before the court as the contempt law required. On Friday, the trial magistrate rejected pleas by an advocate to the municipal council argued that the court ought not to deal with the matter because the file had been sent to the High Court for revision.

    hii sio habari mpya maana tayari Dunia imeshajua Police Force ya Tanzania inafanyaje kazi. Kumbukumbu zipo...hazifutiki.....a matter of time....muda ukifika tuta-refer wanayoyafanya kina Kova, Chagonja na Ustaadh Mwema then kushughulikiwa kwa mujibu wa sheria itakayokuwepo (sio hii wala mahakimu hawa wala Polisi hawa wala CCM)...hata kama miaka 20 ijayo (kumbuka Saloth Sar a.k.a Pol Pot alikamatwa,kushtakiwa na kufungwa akiwa na miaka mingapi)

    Kwenye statement yao ya kuwajibu Kova na Chagonja makamanda wa CDM wasiache kabisa kutaja hili. Polisi pambaff kabisa kwa kukubali kutumiwa na wanasiasa wa magamba.
