Basil Mramba in graft probe

-Focus on corruption allegations linked to five-year stint as finance minister

THISDAY REPORTER
Dar es Salaam
FORMER senior cabinet minister Basil Mramba is under investigation over corruption allegations dating back to his days as finance minister in the third phase government of ex-president Benjamin Mkapa, it has been confirmed.

Well-placed government sources told THISDAY that an official investigation of the 68-year-old Rombo Member of Parliament has already reached a ''very advanced stage.''

It is understood that a formal probe by the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) has focused specifically on corruption allegations against Mramba linked to his five-year tenure as finance minister in the Mkapa administration from 2000 to 2005.

Before being appointed finance minister, Mramba served as minister for industries and trade under Mkapa from 1995 to 2000.

From 2006, he served as minister for infrastructure development in the new fourth phase government of President Jakaya Kikwete, and later reappointed minister in charge of industry, trade and marketing, before eventually being dropped during the dissolution and re-composition of the cabinet last February.

According to our sources, however, the PCCB investigation is particularly targeting corruption allegations against the veteran politician during his stint as finance minister in the third phase government.

While the PCCB Director General, Edward Hoseah, was yesterday not immediately available for comment, our sources described the allegations against Mramba as ''quite serious.''

Mramba headed the finance ministry during the entire second and final term of the Mkapa presidency - a period already heavily clouded by allegations of high-level corruption and dubious government dealings.

Some of the allegations that dogged the establishment during this period include the dubious contract with Alex Stewart (Assayers) Government Business Corporation; the external payment arrears (EPA) account scandal, and the 70bn/- military radar deal.

''There are questions about how he (Mramba) granted certain tax exemptions when he was finance minister, as well as his apparent involvement in other things,'' said a source familiar with the investigation, without elaborating.

The finance ministry is also believed to have been at the heart of various other dubious deals including the 500bn/- Bank of Tanzania (BoT) Twin Towers project, the purchase of the presidential jet, and controversial guarantees given by the central bank in favour of certain private companies.

Several companies, including Meremeta Gold, TANGOLD and Deep Green Finance, are also known to have received billions of shillings from the BoT under dubious circumstances during the period heading towards the end of the third phase government's tenure.

Among other things, Mramba in person has also been linked to the controversial 15-year extension of the Tanzania International Container Terminal Services (TICTS) contract, personally ordered by then-still-president Mkapa in late 2005.

Investigations by THISDAY have already established that a significant number of dubious official payments amounting to hundreds of billions of shillings were made during the final few months and even weeks of the third phase government under Mkapa.

And according to one well-placed source: ''These payments may not necessarily have been diverted to finance the 2005 general elections, as widely believed.''

''It now appears that a huge chunk of these particular monies was actually deposited in private bank accounts controlled by some top government officials?ostensibly to guarantee them a comfortable retirement,'' said the source.

Hii tabia ya kuchunguza uhusiano na kuupondea ni mbaya sana, si umbea tu ni udaku. Mnaanza hivi kidogo mwishowe itakuwa Anna ni malaya. Je wewe umeshakuwa na wanawake wangapi katika kipindi ulichojaaliwa kuishi? tuambie kwanza ya kwako.

So far still remembering" Omnivores",the great one "Wivu wa kijinga huo",the full stomach of your richness from Kiwira will never let you asleep,as long as the carnivores from richmond is striving to kill more after the most known scavengers at Rada deal,EPA and Ticts shortly vanished.

Mie nashangaa hii serikali ya JK. Unamchunguza mtu kama Mramba wakati mwenzake Mgonja bado anakalia sofa pale hazina. Sasa huyo Mgonja hawezi kuharibu vielelezo ambavyo vinaweza kutumika kama ushahidi?? Maana Mgonja naye ni fisadi, na yote hayo yote ya EPA, Twin Tower na matakataka mengine yametokea under his watch. JK alitaadharishwa na JF pamoja na wananchi wengine juu ya Mzee wa VIJISENTI (CHENGE) lakini masikio yake yalikuwa na NTA. Matokeo yake yakawa ni aibu kwake. Sasa tusubiri ya MGONJA maana JK anajifanya kwa mara nyingine masikio yake kuwa na NTA.

Wote waliokuwa karibu na fisadi Mkapa wanahusika kwa namna moja au nyingine kwa ufisadi. Kuna mabalozi wawili mmoja aliteuliwa siku chache kabla ya fisadi Mkapa kumaliza muda wake. Mmoja yuko Sweden na mwingine US ambaye inasemekana alihamishiwa huko ili 'akasimamie biashara za fisadi Mkapa' US kwa ombi alilofanya fisadi kwa Muungwana. Pia inasemekana huyo ndiye aliyemuuguza alipokuwa kalazwa Switzerland. Hawa wawili nao ingekuwa vizuri nao wakachunguzwa maana sia ajabu wanajua mengi kuhusiana na ufisadi alioufanya fisadi Mkapa.

Wakuu,

mbona huyu mwandishi nae mpotoshaji? Mramba hakuwa waziri wa viwanda na biashara 1995-2000.Alikua amekosa ubunge huko Rombo ambo ulikwenda kwa Mhe.Justine Salakana wa CHADEMA.Huyu alipoboronga ndipo warombo wakamchagua huyu mfisadi.

1995-2000 alikua mkuu wa mkoa wa Mbeya aliozawdiwa na Mkapa.

Ni vizuri kama mkapa anchunguzwa maanke huyu ndio mtu wa karibu mno na Mkapa na mkewe.Good move!
