Transport Minister, Omari Nundu yesterday described revelations by Wikileaks on corruption allegations in the Air Tanzanias jetliner-purchase deal as illogical and untrue. The revelations do not make sense they are totally untrue, said the minister in an exclusive interview with The Guardian yesterday. The minister reacting two days after whistle blower website, Wikileaks revealed massive corruption allegations that surrounded a multi-billion airplanes-purchase deal for Air Tanzania (ATCL) four years ago. According to the information sourced from US diplomatic cables, there were elements of corruption in ATCLs plan of purchasing ten airplanes - in a government concerted efforts to revamp the national flag carrier. In his response, the transport minister said although he was not in the ministry at the time the processes were being implemented, simple logic would tell you that Wikileaks revelations are not true. It does not make any sense to say Air Tanzania, which is financially constrained, could involve itself in negotiations for the purchase of airplanes worth billions of shillings. I was not there when these deals were being negotiated, but I know that even by that time, ATCL had no money to embark on large-scale purchasing, noted minister Nundu.
