Tanzanian Royalty And The 'New Frontier' Of Mining - Seeking Alpha
Ubepari bana, yani utajiri ni wetu lakini wanao uown ni watu ambao hata hawajui nchi yetu wala nini...
Hii ina maana kuwa wanaweza wakafikia pahala wao wakawa na madini kwenye storage zao kuiliko yale tuliyonayo ardhini...Ndo maana wana kiburi cha kusitisha manunuzi ili kuwa komoa, ndo walichomfania mwalimu, halafu watu hawaoni...
Halafu kuna "Nairobi Factor"
(i) Motives for smuggliing
Price and market environmental convenience are the key factors sellers take into account in choosing where to sell.
Tanzanian sellers find that in Kenya they have a better chance of making rapid sales in good conditions, provided by adequately capitalised dealers.
As Nairobi has a bigger market, with many dealers who have been in business for decades, it providessellers with certain advantages. They can sell their goods and obtain cash more quickly.
They can sell medium-quality stones as well as top quality ones, whereas in Arusha dealers buy a much smaller volume of stones and only top quality.
Gold sellers find their accommodations paid for by the buyer in Nairobi, while in Arusha they must pay their owncosts.
The Nairobi market also has more diverse and cheaper consumer goods, so traders canbuy consumer goods with the proceeds from minerals sales and turn a cyclical profit on both.This, incidentally, increases the loss to the Tanzanian GDP.
Nairobi is also closer to the northern mining areas than Dar es Salaam, and more accessibleby road for minerslminerals brokers outside of Arusha.
Other reasons for smuggling include fencing other stolen goods, financing imports, and evading taxes on exports and imports.Security during travel ancl selling is also an issue of concern to sellers. According to themining community's views, security protection is not satisfactory.
Miners and brokers who attempted to legalise their operations frequently complained that they were subject to asmuch or more harassment by the authorities when operating legally as when not licensed. Inestablished mining areas, the community develops informal mechanisms for ensuringsecurity.
In mine rush areas, problems include theft, armed robbery and officials taking partor all of one's goods.
The main reasons cited by mining sector operators for the existence of smuggling are:
searching for better mineral markets and prices, avoiding official bureaucracy, advantage of the presence of many foreign brokers in the mining areas, using the informal credit available to minerals operators, and low marketing costs.
stamico= STATE MINING CO-OPARATION
A friend in deed! Ndo maana tunampiga vita sana Nyerere maana ingekuwa ngumu kwa magumashi ya aina hii kutekelezeka. Ukifuatilia vizuri utakuja kugundua kitu tofautipengine na kinachosemwa hapo. Ni kwamba jamaa wanaweza wakatumiwa kama Rites ya India ilivyotumika,lol!
BTW kama kuna mtu mwenye kutaka kuingia kwenye biashara ya madini basi hapa (http://www.tanzaniagateway.org/docs/Tanzanias_Precious_Minerals_Boom_Issues_In_Mining_and_Marketing.pdf)umeshapatiwa pa kuanzia...However mambo ni yale yale tu, tumebakia kwenye siasa, vitendo finyu!
Mambo mengi tu hatuna habari...
Aise hii mambo ya dhahabu ni complex sana, lakini Tanzania inajulikana kuwa mahali rahisi ya kufanya illegal dealings and smuggling. nina uhakika mnajua watu wanaodeal na mines, hebu waulize watawaambia. mimi nina first hand experience.
Ha ha ha! Smatta we jasusi wa Kenya?
Sikujuwa huwa unatembelea huku kwenye siasa.
Cha muhimu ni serikali yetu kuliangalia hili kwa makini kwasabbau nyie hamuna madini lakini ndiyo mnaongoza kuya export na kupata faida kubwa zaidi, sasa shida yetu tunanyonywa na kila mtu!
Tupige brush kidogo...Muhongo anayaendeleza haya ama anashughulikia hizi issue?
