    Tanzania: Country Finds Gold in the South

    James Mwakisyala

    Dar Es Salaam - Tanzania could become the biggest gold producing country in Africa following new discoveries of gold in the most unlikely areas of Lindi and Nachingwea districts in the south of the country.
    The first gold joint venture agreement is between a USA firm, Ruby Creek Resources with Douglas Lake Minerals to develop gold mining on a portion of Mkuvia Maita's gold project area is awaiting final touches before mining operations begin next year.

    Hii kitu kama Watanzania hawataamka mwakani, basi wataendelea kunyonywa na wasiwe na wa kuwalaumu. Inabidi Chadema waitumie hii kitu mwakani. Inabidi Sallim agombee via CHADEMA na kupita kuwaambia watu kwamba, wachague tu CCM na kama madini yakigunduliwa maeneo yao, watafukuzwa kama mbwa.

    Wakimchagua MUUZA nchi na chama chake, wasije wakamlalamikia mtu kwani ni uroho wao wa kupata PILAU, KHANGA na T-SHIRT za njano na kijani.

    Sikonge vipi tena si umesema "Say it Again: 'Dr. Slaa for President in 2010'" au sasa ni "'Say it Again: Dr. Salim for President in 2010'"? Anyway, hii Laana ya Rasilimali (Resource Curse) itatutesa sana maana wanazidi kugundua madini mpaka ya uranium na inaonekana petroli nayo iko ya kumwaga, hebu cheki hiyo picha hapo chini:

    What is Norway oiling in Zanzibar?


    Zanzibar is back on the national and international agenda. Of course it has always been on the agenda. But it's a long time since it was such a mysterious agenda.

    For a whole week we have been treated with puzzling news. ‘What are Karume and Seif up to in Zanzibar? queried The Citizen. ‘Z'bar's Strange Bedfellows' quipped the Sunday Citizen.

    What I found particularly surprising is not "the recent rare talks between Zanzibar's erstwhile political foes, President Amani Abedi Karume and the opposition Civic United Front leader, Maalim Seif Shariff Hamad" (Sunday Citizen 15 November 2009). Why should I be shocked while I know if nothing, or anything, is not done now Zanzibar will explode? When? 2010!

    Then what did I find surprising? Is it the claim that not even the ruling party let alone the presidency knew about the secrecy behind the meeting? Or is it the assertion that our friends in ‘war on terror' and piracy are behind the new-found unity in Zanzibar? Could it be the oil factor?
    Well, what I found intriguing is the energy that our partners in development, Norway, are putting on this agenda. I am particularly startled given the fact that the Ambassador himself has taken a lead on this. He has "been the busiest and most visible over Zanzibar" affirming that "Norway strongly encourages" Karume and Seif's "efforts to bring lasting peace to Zanzibar" (Ibid).

    Surely we know why Tanzanians or Zanzibaris need lasting peace in Zanzibar. But what about Norwegians? Why should they be interested in such peace? For the sake of humanity? Maybe.

    The clue to why our friends in development are so interested in our peace is found in what they have been up to in the past week. Tellingly, their Minister for Environment and International Development was "the first international personality to send a congratulatory message, a few hours after news of the meeting emerged" (Ibid). The Ambassador even crossed the ocean to meet the President of Zanzibar. He also met the Minister responsible for Union Matters.

    More tellingly the Norwegian Embassy "conducted two separate workshops for Members of the National Assembly, and the Zanzibar House of Representatives to sensitise them on oil exploration and drilling for an impending Bill on the matter" (Ibid). The possibility of oil discovery in Zanzibar has caused a lot of animosity between those who want its revenues to be shared as a Union Matter and those who don't. Why, then, is Norway so interested in this issue?

    The official website of the Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) at http://www.tpdc-tz.com/ list 17 licensed Oil and Gas Exploration Companies that operates in Tanzania. Out of these only one is from Norway. Its name is Statoil Asa. Ironically, it is not operating in Zanzibar. Rather, it is operating on what is refered to as Deep Sea Block Number 2.

    On the map this block is close to Mtwara and Lindi. According to this company's official website at http://www.statoil.com/ its total area is "11,099 square kilometres, and it lies in water depths of between 400 and 3000 metres" off "the coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean." If a Norwegian company is thus far removed from Zanzibar who then is really involved in Zanzibar?

    Apparently the company that is operating in Zanzibar/Pemba is a Canadian one. It is known as Antrim Resources among other names. Shell International from Holland is also operating albeit in the Deep Sea Blocks Number 9, 10, 11 and 12 which, in a way, surrounds Zanzibar. As a matter of fact the whole on and off shore of the Indian Ocean in Tanzania is licensed for oil/gas exploration and companies from as far as Australia, Brazil and the United Kingdom are involved.

    It is thus quite clear that there is an international scramble for oil and gas in this Eastern board of Tanzania/Africa. This, I contend, is the one of the main reasons why Norway is so interested in what is going on in Zanzibar. As history has taught us Zanzibar has always been a strategic area.

    Commenting on this historical legacy, Abdulrahman Mohammed Babu said: "A country like Zanzibar was quite strategic in superpower manoeuvres because of its historic role in influencing events in the region." This is the Zanzibar that attracted a whole Empire to move its capital from Muscat into it. It's the Zanzibar that is facing the shaky Middle East. It is a Zanzibar that is a corridor to Somalia, the new zone of piracy. Who wouldn't want to control such a Zanzibar?

    Surely Norway, as a country that has used oil among other resources to develop, wouldn't want to be a loser in a battle for the soul of Zanzibar. Neither would ‘America'. Nor would Tanzania.

    Ni laana ambayo hata Mwl. Nyerere alishaitabiri siku nyingi. Alafu ujue hawa wazungu wanatucheka sana na wanatuona sisi kama hatuna akili, nimwshangaa hata kwenye KATUNI YA THE SIMPSONS 'holiday in Africa' wameigiza jinsi TANZANIA isivyokua na uongozi makini na jinsi wazungu wanavyoweza kuja Tanzania na kuondoka na DIAMONDS bila wasiwasi wala kipingamizi chochote.
    Nadhani Tanzania imelaanika kwa sababu ya tamaa ya viongozi wanaojali maslahi yao kuliko inchi, pia hawaangalii mbali.
    This is very sick....

    Julius hata Miarabu iko involved. Miafrika nayo iko involved ila sijui kwa manufaa ya nani - Limojawapo hili hapa:

    Lake Victoria Mining Company has already appointed a Tanzanian geologist, Mr Ahmed Magoma, a former employee of the Energy and Minerals ministry, to its board. Mr Magoma is to oversee resource property acquisitions and explorations.
    Lake Victoria Mining Company, Inc. (OTC BB:LVCA.OB - News) is recruiting a new team with international business, geology and finance experience. Joining the board of directors is Ahmed A. Magoma...

    Mr. Ahmed Magoma, (Tanzania) has a BSc in geology from the University of Dar es Salaam (1992) and 16 years experience in the mining industry wherein he has held progressively more responsible management and supervisory roles. He most recently joined Kilimanjaro Mining Company, Inc. (Feb-07, www.kilimanjarominingcompany.com) a private company involved in the acquisition and exploration of highly prospective resource properties in Tanzania, East Africa. In addition to being a director with Kilimajaro, Mr. Magoma is responsible for all resource property acquisitions and explorations within Tanzania. His experience encompasses gold projects from grassroots through to mining production. His field experience included working with Tanex, a subsidiary of DeBeers and other South African companies as a field geologist. Mr Magoma worked with the Ministry of Energy and Minerals in Tanzania for a period to learn, through study, the techniques of small-scale miners to enhance their production. His extensive experience in field geology prepared Mr. Magoma to work with the major gold companies Barrick and Randgold as a project geologist and then as senior project geologist with Tanzanite Africa.
    Miafrika Mingine iko fiti ila ipo ipo tu kwenye maboard ya Makampuni - kama hili hapa:

    Faustus Felician Rutahindurwa - Chief Geologist
    Prior to joining AFGEM in November 2000, Faustus held various positions with SAMAX Limited, including Exploration Geologist, and later moved on to one of their subsidiaries, GRAPHTAN Limited where he later was appointed as Chief Geologist. In 1998, he became a partner in a tanzanite mining concession on Block D, where he gained broad knowledge and expertise relating to tanzanite's geology and extraction. Faustus is currently a key member of TanzaniteOne Mining Geology Department and participates in all areas of geology for TanzaniteOne. To date, he has successfully integrated local knowledge and geological models into the tanzanite operation.

    Kumwita mzungu mwezi mweupe ni kosa kubwa sana na sio busara. Wewe ona tuu Tanesco imeshikwa na mtanzania tokea messengers mpaka ma directors lakini umeme ni shida mpaka leo. Nenda bandali utaona ni uozo mtupu ingawa wasomi wapo kutatua kero za ku clear mizigo. Sasa hawa wataalam weupe wanapokuja kutusaidia tuu ili nasi tupate revenue kutoka katika madini watu wana lalamika. Ukiwa mbahili sana katika madini utashindwa hata kupata soko la kuuza ndio maana williamson diamond ya mwadui inamilikiwa na makaburu miaka yote. Mafuta uarabuni yanatoa revenue kwa wataalam wa kizungu vile vile kwa waarabu wenyewe. Wewe Tazama tuu tanzanite inachimbwa na wazalendo kule arusha nani anafaidika ? Utakuta serikali haipati lolote kutoka tanzanite na wala mitaa mingi ya arusha haina lami. Jamani acheni kuwachukia wazungu wawatu ambao wamefanya kazi nzuri sana kutuletea maendeleo. Hay amabo ya kufukuzwa wanachi maeneo yao ili madini yachimbwe yapo duniani kote na sio tanzania tuu. Hii harakati ya ku create jobs and kupunguza unemployment rate.
