    THE deal stinks like a dead and rotting animal. Eti, the government rewarded the Tanzania International Container Services (TICTS) with an extension of its contract -- for doing a bad job! It seems the government was very impressed by poor performance of TICTS. So it gave the firm an extended contract of 15 years before it had even finished the first. The original contract was supposed to end in 2010. Now it is supposed to stay in place until the year 2025.

    The extension of the lease was in 2005, just before the general elections. You plainly see some dirty tricks have been at play here. In case you don't understand what the game means, think about the word 'corruption'. Even our Bunge has smelt the stink of it all. embers

    of the Parliamentary Committee on Infrastructure Development went to TICTS to have a closer look. They came out with their hands holding their noses. They have demanded an explanation for the stench from the government. The MPs expressed their doubts. They want to see the contracts in Parliament to have a closer look. So far there has been the usual response from the government -- a deafening silence.

    Some MPs have threatened to corner the government in parliament if they did not get satisfactory answers. Some said they were contemplating tabling private motions in the House on the TICTS stink. We are closely watching them at the on-going show in Dodoma . So far the government has ignored the MPs.

    The stink continues. TICTS has the sole monopoly of the container trade in Bongo? What is that, if not naked corruption? One of the MPs wanted other players to be allowed to trade in the business which TICTS monopolises. I thought we live in a different era. Even the ruling CCM party decided to give away monopoly of the political game. How can the CCM government give TICTS monopoly as sole container operator? If you liberalise politics you will have to do the same in trade. Just let other traders enter the business.

    TICTS is collecting 15 billion a year from the container business. Which is good moolah. If I had such money I would give 2 or 3 billion to the CCM as a gift. Who knows, I might even run for the Bunge myself and maybe be given a cabinet post. No. Let's be fair and all of us play on a plain level ground. It is simply wrong for the government to lean on the side of TICTS. This habit of impunity must stop.

    Finn’s Facts : Yes, attempts to give TICTS monopoly of Dar Port should be stopped

    LAST week members of the parliamentary committee on infrastructure development were all up in arms against a hugely controversial decision by President Benjamin Mkapa’s government to extend by 15 years a leasing agreement of Dare s Salaam Port’s container terminal in September 2005.

    The MPs wondered why the Third Phase government decided to extend Tanzania International Container Terminal Services lease agreement signed in October 2000 with the defunct Parastatal Sector Reform Commission by 15 years without following proper procedure.

    The initial agreement between PSRC and TICTS which boasts of having current Minister for Energy and Minerals Nazir Karamagi as one of its shareholders, indicated that a review will be done in the 10th year to see if the company can be granted an extension of the lease through a competitive open tender.

    But a bizarre situation that begs many questions as asked by MPs evolved midway through the contract in 2005 when the Third Phase government was concluding its tenure. An appraisal of TICTS’s performance was ordered, it is claimed, and the container operator was awarded an abnormal extension of a decade and a half.

    But apart from the contract extension, the government also ordered Tanzania Ports Authority to give TICTS Berth 8 and Kurasini inland container depot, a clear violation of rules and regulations governing privatization.

    But officials of TICTS argued that the government decision was both timely and appropriate because there was efficiency which demanded more room for containers but also more time for the performer.

    What followed thereafter is what made legislators question the sincerity of the former government to give TICTS close to monopoly of handling containerized cargo at the country’s prime port.

    Congestion of containers blamed on poor investment in infrastructure including gantry cranes, trucks and trailer pulling tractors. Clearing and forwarding agents also blame the congestion on transshipment containers which is alleged to be new business with windfall profits which TICTS has shown keen interest.

    TICTS management has dismissed the claims and gave its own version of the story by saying the congestion is a result of booming regional trade.

    Several visits to the port by Prime Minister Edward Lowassa, who announced several measures to decongest the port including a 24-hour working schedule, streamlining of customs clearing paper work and allocation of more space for TICTS to stack containers.

    These moves have proven futile to decongest the country’’s prime port and instead what has happened is that TICTS has all of a sudden become an inefficient company with poor equipment to offload containers from ships and deliver them at ICDs.

    Suddenly, an efficient company two years ago has turned to be inefficient, why? Was the 2005 government decision based on facts and figures, accurate? Something, somewhere went terribly wrong and like other poor contracts which previous governments signed with private foreign companies, we are done for another 17 years.

    Tai kubwa kuna typing error kwenye contribution yako, umesema makataba wa TICS unaisha 2015 si kweli. Hawa jamaa kwanza walikuwa na mkataba wa miaka 10 kuanzia 2000 mpaka 2010 ilipofika 2005 waliongezewa miaka 15 juu na kufanya mkataba wao uishe 2025- So makataba wao ni miaka 25.Hili huwezi kulipata kwingine kokote duniani zaidi ya Tanzania.

    Kikwete aliwahi kusema urais wake hauna ubia na mtu yeyote,zile zilikuwa ni POROJO za ajabu kutoka kwa rais wetu msemaji. In my very honest opinion Kikwete ana ubia wa urais na watu kibao KARAMAGI ni mmojawapo hili halina mjadala otherwise tusingeendelea kufanywa wajinga kiasi hiki. Scandal baada ya scandal bado yupo ofisini, in the first place kwanini waziri afanye biashara na serikali anayoiongoza????!!. Rais Kikwete hii nchi sio yako na jamaa zako ni nchi yetu wote.

    EDITORIAL: Govt must come out clean on TICTS contract

    Dar es Salaam

    IN our yesterday's issue we revealed in a front page story that the dubious extension of the Tanzania International Container Terminal Services (TICTS) contract by 15 years was actually ordered by former president Benjamin Mkapa.

    According to the story, in September 2005 Mkapa instructed the then ministry of communications and transport to extend the contract of the private operator leasing operations of the container terminal at the Dar es Salaam port from the initial 10 years to 25 years.

    It is interesting to note that at the time the contract extension was ordered by the then president, the privately-owned TICTS was in only the fifth year of the original 10-year contract signed in September 2000.

    Surprisingly, however, halfway before the contract officially expired, Mkapa ordered that the company be given a 15-year extension, thus increasing the contract duration to 25 years.

    This means that TICTS was granted exclusive rights by the former president to lease operations at the Dar es Salaam port's container terminal through 2025.

    We are told that in addition to authorising the contract extension, Mkapa also ordered authorities to allow TICTS to use Berth number 8 and its adjacent land at the port.

    As if that was not enough, he went ahead to grant the private company access to the Ubungo container depot to store excess containers that cannot be accommodated at the port due to constraints of storage space.

    What is more interesting is the fact that Mkapa issued this order just a month before the end of his second and final term in office in 2005. The timing of this controversial order by the former president raises more questions than answers.

    One may wish to ask what prompted the extension of the contract? Was the president wrongly advised? Perhaps.

    Like other Tanzanians we don't know the motive behind the extension of the TICTS contract which many describe as 'Illegal'. Indeed, this was completely against the law and contrary to the government's own regulations and procedures.

    It is obvious that under normal circumstances, a contract cannot be extended until the initial period of the duration of the contract is concluded.

    We think this is the right time for the government to explain to the public why there was no transparent and competitive public tender, inviting private companies for the contract. This should have been done after a thorough assessment of TICTS performance.

    What particular qualities did TICTS have to deserve such a rare treatment from the then head of state?

    Tanzanians need answers to these questions now, or else they are likely to demand cancellation of the contract for, in our opinion, it's not in the public interest. Or is it?

    TICTS: The inside story

    -Including how the company gained a highly controversial contract extension deal in the midst of increasing performance criticism

    Dar es Salaam

    TANZANIA International Container Terminal Services (TICTS), which is at the centre of the ongoing containers congestion crisis at the port of Dar es Salaam, landed the lucrative contract to lease the port’s container terminal operations barely five months after being officially registered, it has been learnt.

    Investigations by THISDAY have established that TICTS was incorporated on April 19, 2000, and in September of the same year, was awarded a 10-year contract to lease the container terminal which was one of the most profitable units under the then Tanzania Harbours Authority (now the Tanzania Ports Authority).

    TICTS won the contract after a public tender process floated by the now defunct Presidential Parastatal Sector Reform Commission (PSRC), which initially attracted 11 bidders.

    Official records show that at the time of TICTS’ registration, there were a total of eight listed company directors, including Nazir Karamagi (the former minister for energy and minerals who recently resigned over the Richmond corruption scandal) and Gulam Chaka, described as a Tanzanian businessman.

    Karamagi is also the director of Vertex Financial Services (Tanzania) Limited, which shares with TICTS the same postal address (P.O Box 13412, Dar es Salaam) and registered office (Zambian High Commission building along Ohio Street/Sokoine Drive in Dar es Salaam City centre).

    All key company documents of TICTS were also signed by the ex-minister, who furthermore chaired meetings of the company’s shareholders.

    On the other hand, Chaka is linked to another company going by the name of DERMEXIM Limited.

    Other TICTS directors listed on the registration documents were all foreigners; Thomas Falknor, Noel Mirasol and Jorge Cano (all described as United States of America nationals), Eurique Klar Razon, Jr. from the Phillipines, Johannes Theodorus Mors from South Africa, and Tonny Pieter Bestenbreur from the Netherlands.

    It is understood that in May 2000, TICTS made a share allotment to the International Container Terminal Services Inc. of the Phillipines (127,500 shares), ICTSI International Holdings Corporation of the Phillipines (59,999 shares), and Vertex Financial Services (62,499 shares).

    The same month, TICTS increased its nominal capital to 2.75bn/- from the original listed capital of 250m/- at the time of its registration.

    At an extraordinary general meeting of TICTS shareholders held in Dar es Salaam on February 23, 2001 under the chairmanship of Karamagi, it was resolved to allot 1,551,666 un-issued ordinary shares worth 1,000/- each as follows:

    International Container Terminal Services Inc. of the Phillipines (791,350 shares), ICTSI International Holdings of the Phillipines (294,816 shares) and Harbours Investment Limited (465,500 shares).

    Vertex is understood to have transferred its TICTS shares to the Harbours Investment Limited company.

    In November 2001, International Container Terminal Services Inc. of the Phillipines transferred its shares in TICTS to Hutchison International Port Holdings Limited of Hong Kong.

    It was just a few months after taking over operations at the container terminal that serious questions started being raised about the efficiency of the TICTS company.

    Reports began to abound that although the container terminal operations traditionally generated high profit margins, revenues started to fall under the TICTS management, prompting the then Tanzania Harbours Authority director general, Samson Luhigo, to publicly criticise TICTS’ performance.

    Speaking at a function held at the Mtwara Port and also attended by then president Benjamin Mkapa, the THA boss declared:

    ’’A year before privatization of the container terminal in 1999/2000, profit after tax was close to 10bn/-, but a year after privatization in 2000/01, it went down to 4bn/-. The 2001/02 accounts which have been submitted to auditors point to an all-time low revenue of 0.04bn/-.’’

    Nevertheless, in 2005 - when TICTS was just halfway through its contract � it was Mkapa himself who sensationally ordered the extension of the company’s contract by a whopping 15 years.

    Hardly a month before the end of his second and final term in office, the ex-president instructed the then Ministry of Communications and Transport to extend TICTS’ contract from the initial 10 years to 25 years.

    Apart from authorising the contract extension, Mkapa also ordered authorities to allow TICTS to use Berth number 8 and its adjacent land at the port of Dar es Salaam, and granted the company access to the Ubungo container depot to store excess containers that cannot be accommodated in the port area itself due to constraints of storage space.

    In the light of the increasing congestion problems at the port of Dar es Salaam, the dubious contract extension has come under closer and closer scrutiny from various sections of the general public, including members of parliament.

    Huyu RAis Mstaafu Mkapa ndiye aliyekuwa anakuwadia Utandawazi na ndiye aliyeweka misingi ya Ufisadi nchini. JK, hawa wote waliotajwa katika habari hii tunaomba Wachunguzwe na kuchukuliwa hatua ziazofaa Mkapa na Karamagi.

    Hivi kwa nini kila ufisadi na kashfa katika awamu ya 3 inamuhusishwa Mkapa? JK, tunaomba utuwekee misingi ya Uwajibikaji kwa ajili ya Marais wajao ili kuiepusha nchi yetu na vizazi vyetu vijavyo na athari za viongozi wasiowajibika.

    Watoto na Wajukuu zetu watakuja kufukua makaburi yetu na kuchunguza kama vichwa vyetu vilikuwa na akili sawasawa na wakiwaona Watoto na Wajukuu wa Watawala Mafisadi waliopita wanatanua hali wao wakiwa Maskini kunahatari nchi yetu ikaingia kwenye matatizo tumayoshuhudia katika nchi nyingine za Afrika.

    Ni wakati wa kujenga misingi ya Amani ya Taifa letu kwa vizazi vijavyo.WAKATI NI SASA

    Hivi nitakosea nikisema TZ kwa sasa kuna haja ya kuachana na utawala wa kisheria kwa muda na kufanya operation ya kamata kamata ya hawa wezi. nadhani mataifa mengi yaliyoendelea yalifanya hivyo kwa lengo la kusafisha nyumba zao kwanza kabla ya kuweka misingi imara ya kisheria.

    Tukishasafisha nyumba yatu; taasisi zote zenye nguvu tuziimarishe na kuanza sasa kufuata misingi ya utawala bora. Taasisi kama mahakama, takukuru, bunge, media, civil society oragizations hazina uwezo kwa sasa wa kusimamia serikali. Ndio maana raisi anajikuta kila mara anaunda tume.

    Akina Mkapa wanatakiwa kutiwa ndani na mabilioni ya dola zilizoibwa yarudishwe. Wananchi tumechoka na ahadi; tumechoka kusubiri. Utaratibu huu wa kidemokrasia feki umetuchosha. Mbona hao wezi hawakuheshimu utawala bora?

    Nina hasira sana na hawa wezi ndani ya nchi yangu.

    Je, kutakuwa na Bangusilo mwingine?????

    TICTS mikononi mwa Bunge

    na George Maziku

    HATIMA ya mkataba kati ya serikali na Kampuni ya upakuaji makontena bandarini ya Tanzania International Container Terminal Services (TICTS) itafahamika mwezi Aprili, mwaka huu wakati wa kikao cha Bunge la Tanzania.

    Hayo yamesemwa jana jijini Dar es Salaam na Naibu Waziri wa Miundombinu, Dk. Makongoro Mahanga, wakati akifungua warsha ya siku moja ya wanachama wa Tanzania Freight Forwarders Association (TAFFA) iliyofanyika katika Ukumbi wa mikutano wa Karimjee.

    Akijibu maswali ya waandishi wa habari kutoka vyombo mbalimbali vya habari, Dk. Mahanga alisema katika kikao kijacho cha Bunge, Kamati ya Miundombinu itawasilisha ripoti yake na kupendekeza hatua za kuchukua.

    “Katika kikao kilichopita cha Bunge, ilikubaliwa kuwa kamati ya Bunge ifanye uchunguzi kuhusu TICTS na ilete bungeni taarifa na mapendekezo yake, ambapo Bunge litaamua hatua za kuchukua,” alisema Dk. Mahanga.

    Awali katika hotuba yake ya ufunguzi aliyoisoma mbele ya wajumbe wa TAFFA, Dk. Mahanga alikiri kuwa mlundikano wa makontena katika Bandari ya Dar es Salaam uliosababishwa na uwezo mdogo wa Kampuni ya TICTS, ni changamoto kubwa inayoikabili Mamlaka ya Bandari nchini katika kuboresha huduma zake.

    “Changamoto iliyopo mbele yetu katika sekta ya usafirishaji wa majini ni ongezeko la makontena katika Bandari ya Dar es Salaam yanayotumiwa kusafirishia biashara ya kimataifa,” aliseama Dk. Mahanga.

    Kwa upande wake Rais wa TAFFA Otieno Igogo, ameitaka serikali kuuweka wazi mkataba kati yake na Kampuni ya TICTS ili umma uweze kuuona kama una manufaa kwake au unainufaisha TICTS pekee.

    Alisema umekuwepo usiri mkubwa kuhusu mkataba kati ya serikali na TICTS, kiasi kwamba hata wao (TAFFA) wakiwa wadau wakuu wa shughuli za bandari, hawajui kilichomo katika mkataba huo, hali inayowapa mashaka kuwa huenda ni mkataba wa kitapeli kama ule wa Richmond.

    “Mkataba wa TICTS hata sisi hatuujui, wanaojua kilichomo kwenye mkataba huo ni wenyewe TICTS na serikali. Tuna hofu mkataba huo ukawa wa kitapeli kama mambo ya Richmond, tunaitaka serikali ituambie kuhusu mkataba huo,” alisema Igogo.

    Pia Igogo ameishauri serikali kuwekeza zaidi katika usafirishaji wa majini, kwa kupanua bandari zetu na kuboresha huduma za kupakia na kupokea mizigo katika bandari ili kuongeza pato la taifa.

    Alisema inaonekana serikali bado haijatambua ukweli kwamba bandari ni chanzo kikuu cha mapato ya taifa na kwamba kama huduma zinaboreshwa katika bandari, sekta hiyo inaweza kuchangia nusu ya pato la taifa.

    “Nchi za Dubai, Hongkong na Singapore zinategemea sana mapato yanatokana na bandari, karibu nusu ya mapato yake ya taifa yanategemea sekta ya bandari,” alibainisha Igogo.
