Why do we speculate? For example, the squandered amount...is there any report which indicates how the money was squandered? I suspect most of the said money was used without following procurement processes or being used without budgetary approvals.
EPA has some specific details, Escrow as well...in order to have a solid case, it is better to talk with details and show the evidence of where the misappropriated money has gone.
Lets be honest....trillion of Tsh is not a joke....that is alot of money. CAG has highlighted something...then other with grievances should come up with all the missing information.
For now the figures are just hanging in the air without being supported with evidence
If that is so why 1.5T expenditure details and attachments didn't go into the CAG office for him to clear the Audit query,why shouldn"t we speculate that there was mis use of the amount and hence corruptions???

Masharti ya mauziano ni makubaliano ya pande mbili. Boeing (na wauaji wote wa teknolojia za gharama kubwa) siku zote hutoa "ballpark figure" na hilo, na hata mmoja anaefichua siri ya bei halisi ya mauziano.

Kajidanganyeni kwenye vijiwe vya mitaani kwenu si humu.
Ukiondoa na hilo bado Mheshimiwa ana rekodi au tuhuma za ufisadi hata kabla ya kujinadi kuwa yeye mzalendo. Kumbuka uuzaji wa nyumba za serikali yeye akiwa waziri. Na nyingine alituhumiwa kuwauzia aali zake huku wakiwa hawana sifa na vigezo vya kuuziwa kitu kilichoilazimisha serikali ya JK kuishi mahotelini na kutumia fedha nyingi kuelekeza kwenye ujenzi wa nyumba mpya. Na sasa ni taarifa rasmi za kiserikali, toka kwa mzalendo wa kweli Prof. Assad (Simba).

Ukisoma post yangu ilikuwa ikijibu hoja ya mauziano kuwekwa wazi. Sipo kwa hayo ya Assad kwenye post hiyo. Ni kama unapiga u turn.

mkuu pesa ya umma inatolewa na bunge ( wananchi) kwa serikali ili itumie,Sasa hivi ukichukua Pesa yangu na kuitumia bila idhini yangu hiyo ni nini?
Pesa ni yakwako, unalala sakafuni tangu uzaliwe, walezi wako wa awali hawakujali hayo na wewe ukaxhukulia ndo matakwa ya Mungu.

Nachukua sasa pesa yako kwa sababu huna akili ya kujitambua, nakujengea nyumba na kukuboreshea maisha.

Pesa yako imetumika bila ridhaa yako kukuletea maendeleo yako mwenyewe wala sikutumia kwa manufaa yangu.

Umenunukiwa nyumba ya kisasa, shamba, maisha bora na mambo yako yamekaa level sasa.

Utakuwa chizi wewe ukilalamika eti umeibiwa pesa.

Wala sijakuelewa,yaani unachukua Pesa yangu kwa kuwa unaona mie sina akili na Wala wewe mwenye akili hujiulizi kwamba pamoja na Pesa nilizonazo why sijengi nyumba badala yake wewe mwenye akili ukajiridhisha tena kwa vigezo unavyojua wewe kuwa maendeleo ninayotaka mim ni nyumba siyo?i au ili nionekane nina maisha mazuri mbele za watu basi inabidi niwe na nyumba siyo? Sasa naelewa why ninyi ni wezi,kumbe mnatuona mazuzu? Unataka nikuambie sisi pia tunawaonaje?

Kama Kafulila bilioni 300 tu za Escrow alikuja na majina ya wezi, account ya serikali iliyochotwa na Benki zilizotumimika kutuibia. Ninyi mnashindwaje matrilioni yote hayo? mnatuletea UMBEA tu!
Hatimaye nimejua tatizo lako...kumbe ni lugha! Kumbe hata hujasoma na kuelewa kilicholetwa mezani, umebaki unaropoka tu na kukurupuka kama dikteta wako uchwara, hebu pitia hapa...

Magufuli is presiding over a corrupt government that spends billions of public funds unscrupulously, with no regard to laws and laid down procedures.
  • Tsh 1.3 trillion (equivalent to $562 million, was “embezzled.” Out of this amount, the treasury faces an audit query amounting to Tsh 885 billion (equivalent to $382.7m).
  • Tsh 432.7 billion, equivalent to $188m, was embezzled through procurement of goods and services from five entities whose suppliers were neither approved nor legally registered.
  • Last year, the audit raised the same query over Tsh 751 billion (equivalent to $324.6m) embezzled in the year 2016/2017.
  • When the re-audit report was presented in February 2019, it revealed further anomalies, with the missing funds shooting to Tsh 2.4 trillion ($1.03bn).
  • For the past three years, ATCL has incurred massive losses. In 2014/15, the losses amounted to Tsh 94.3 billion.
  • In 2015/16, ATCL further made losses to the tune of Tsh 109.2 billion, while in 2017/18, the losses were Tsh 113.7 billion.

Using funds without parliament approval is different from stealing as it happened with Escrow or other scandals. We need more information before taking such a position.
dont you associate that with corruption?

How about squandering trillions of shillings through dubious deals and transactions, including illegal procurements and misappropriation through the country’s treasury.
Well ! May you substantiate these 'shaky' accusations with evidence including some figure, which really lead to conviction of head of current government?

Magufuli loses battle against corruption![/CENTER]

TANZANIA’s President John Magufuli, once hailed by western media as a “bulldozer of graft” has officially lost the battle against corruption. While he enjoys branding himself as a corruption fighter, audit reports show that he is presiding over a corrupt government that spends billions of public funds unscrupulously, with no regard to laws and laid down procedures.

Worse still, his government keeps working to block or silence those attempting to find out and publicise findings about grand corruption in his regime – particularly deficiencies associated with his leadership judgements.

The latest audit report by the Controller and Auditor General (CAG) reveals that during the year 2017/2018, the Magufuli government squandered trillions of shillings through dubious deals and transactions, including illegal procurements and misappropriation through the country’s treasury.

In total, Tsh 1.3 trillion (equivalent to $562 million, was “embezzled.” Out of this amount, the treasury faces an audit query amounting to Tsh 885 billion (equivalent to $382.7m). Tsh 432.7 billion, equivalent to $188m, was embezzled through procurement of goods and services from five entities whose suppliers were neither approved nor legally registered.

This is not the first time the CAG’s report queries the treasury over misappropriation of public funds. Last year, the audit raised the same query over Tsh 751 billion (equivalent to $324.6m) embezzled in the year 2016/2017.

The CAG writes emphatically about this: “I reiterate my prior year recommendation, and ( I am) advising accounting officer to keep refraining from diversion of funds, and adhere to expenditures that only fall within the approved budget and the Government Financial Statistics (GFS) codes. Whenever such diversion is inevitable and in line with authority, reallocation warrant has to be sought in conjunction with Section 41 of the Budget Act No. 11 of 2015.”

In 2018, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of the National Assembly, having read the CAG’s report for the year 2016/17, discovered that Tsh 1.5 trillion ($640m) was “missing.” The government did not have any reasonable explanation.

The parliament ordered a re-audit of the same. When the re-audit report was presented in February 2019, it revealed further anomalies, with the missing funds shooting to Tsh 2.4 trillion ($1.03bn).

Informed sources within the government say authorities are obviously exasperated by the CAG’s reports, and they are behind a current barrage of accusations by the National Assembly Speaker, Job Ndugai, against the CAG Prof. Mussa Assad.

It is understood that some procurement is executed by direct orders from the president, whose nephew, Dotto James, permanent secretary for the ministry of finance, is the treasurer general.

On several occasions, Magufuli has said publicly that he personally ordered the purchase of air crafts, on advice from Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame, against budgetary approval. A few months ago, he said in a public address that the air crafts, managed by Air Tanzania Corporation Limited (ATCL), had made huge financial profits.

But reports reveal that for the past three years, ATCL has incurred massive losses. In 2014/15, the losses amounted to Tsh 94.3 billion. In 2015/16, it made losses to the tune of Tsh 109.2 billion, while in 2017/18, the losses were Tsh 113.7 billion.

Reacting to incessant audit queries, and in effort to avoid further audit, the government is now rearranging the government procurement unit, putting it in the president’s office. Sources say the move is being executed following “orders from above,” but it will definitely cause further embarrassment and bring about more scandals against the president as he becomes the procurer-in-chief.

Magufuli enjoys working without being monitored or audited; and he hates criticism of any kind. This attitude explains his government’s brutality and hostility against critical media, opposition parties, objective academic researches, and strongly opinionated civil leaders. His most recent action was to block publication of an annual report by IMF on the state of the economy in Tanzania.

By this behaviour, it is obvious that Magufuli has lost the battle against corruption. He has moved miles away from the integrity that he was once, wrongly, of course, associated with. Some circles within his own government point out that there has never been a more corrupt regime before him.
It really defeats my inner soul in reacting to this presentation as it confuses me - IS MAG3 EQUAL TO ANSBERT NGURUMO? I am asking this because it makes no sense to communicate with Mag3 on behalf of Ansbert Ngurumo or the other way round!

There are times when you need quick fix to matters that need to be in place urgently and which, if normal procedures will be applied, delays may cause harm to the nation. And these should not be taken as corruption, squander, embezzlement or the alike!
