The Tanzanian prosecutor investigating worldwide misconduct by BAE, Britain's biggest arms company, confided to US diplomats that "his life may be in danger" and senior politicians in his small African country were "untouchable".

A leaked account of what the head of Tanzania's anti-corruption bureau, Edward Hoseah, termed the "dirty deal" by BAE to sell Tanzania an overpriced radar system, is revealed in the US embassy cables.

BAE is to appear in court in London tomorrow, when their system of making secret payments to secure arms contracts, exposed by the Guardian, will be officially detailed for the first time.

Every individual involved in the BAE scandal in Britain and Tanzania has escaped prosecution.

But the arms giant agreed with the UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO) to pay £30m in corporate reparations and fines, provided the word "corruption" did not appear on the indictment. A corruption conviction would debar the company from EU contracts.

The former overseas development secretary, Clare Short, said at the time: "It was always obvious that this useless project was corrupt."

Hoseah met a US diplomat, Purnell Delly, in Dar es Salaam in July 2007, and claimed (unrealistically it turned out) he would be able to prosecute guilty individuals in the BAE case. The US cable reports: "He called the deal 'dirty' and said it involved officials from the Ministry of Defence and at least one or two senior level military officers."

Hoseah spoke gloomily about the prospects for Tanzania's anti-corruption struggle and his original hopes to prosecute the "big fish" of corruption.

"He told us point blank ... that cases against the prime minister or the president were off the table ..." The cable then details allegations against former leaders and their inner circles, saying they would be "untouchable".

"He noted that President Kikwete does not appear comfortable letting the law handle corruption cases which might implicate top-level officials." The cable then says Kwitke "does not want to set a precedent" by going after any of his predecessors.

There were "widespread rumours of corruption within the Bank of Tanzania", Hoseah said, and the island region of Zanzibar was also "rife with corruption".

The diplomat noted: "Hoseah reiterated concern for his personal security ... saying he believed his life may be in danger ... He had received threatening text messages and letters and was reminded every day that he was fighting the 'rich and powerful'."

He might have to flee the country. He warned: "He said quietly: 'If you attend meetings of the inner-circle, people want you to feel as if they have put you there. If they see that you are uncompromising, there is a risk.' "

The US embassy noted in a "cynical" aside, that probably the only reason Hoseah felt obliged to attempt a BAE prosecution was because the SFO had presented him with "a fully developed case file, brimming with detailed evidence".

Today's court appearance by BAE is the culmination of lengthy attempts to bring the company to justice since the Guardian exposed its worldwide secret payment system.

The prime minister at the time, Tony Blair, intervened in 2006 to halt an SFO investigation into payments to members of the Saudi royal family.

The US department of justice has had more success than the SFO, forcing BAE to pay $400m (£260m) in penalties under the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

£28m radar deal 'stank'

Tanzania, on Africa's east coast, is one of the poorest states in the world, formerly controlled in turn by Arab slavers, German colonists and the British.

At the time of the radar deal, life expectancy was 45.

Tanzania was forced to apply for debt relief from the west and was heavily dependent on aid. It is ravaged by HIV/Aids and its GDP per head is just $723 (£465).

President Benjamin Mkapa, whose regime did the deal, was succeeded in 2004 by his political colleague Jakaya Kikwete.

Tanzania, which has no air force, bought the military air defence radar from BAE in 2001 for £28m.

It was claimed the Commander system, which was portable and festooned with anti-jamming devices, could also be used for civilian air traffic control.

The country borrowed the cost from Barclays, adding to its debt burden. Both the World Bank and the International Civil Aviation Organisation called the purchase unnecessary and overpriced.

In London, the then development secretary, Clare Short, temporarily blocked aid payments in protest. "It stank," she now says of the sale.

She urged an export licence be withheld, but was overruled by Tony Blair himself. Robin Cook, then foreign secretary, recorded bitterly in his diary that Dick Evans [of BAE] seemed to have "the key to the garden door of No 10 [Downing St]".

In January 2007 the Guardian disclosed that BAE had used an offshore front company, Red Diamond, to secretly pay £8.4m, 30% of the radar's ostensible price, into a Swiss account.

The account was controlled by Tanzanian middleman Sailesh Vithlani. His "consultancy" agreement was, it is alleged, formally signed off in London by Evans.

SUBJECT: BIG FISH STILL RISKY CATCH IN TANZANIA
REF: A. A. DAR ES SALAAM 1009 B. B. DAR ES SALAAM 00085
Classified By: D. Purnell Delly, Deputy Chief of Mission, for reasons 1 .4(b and d).

1. (C) SUMMARY. Tanzania's Prevention of Corruption Bureau (PCB) has never successfully prosecuted a high-level

corruption case involving either the private or public sector. On July 14, the Director General of the PCB, Edward Hoseah, assured the DCM that the PCB was now prepared to prosecute a milestone corruption case: the U.K.-Tanzanian BAE radar deal. Beyond plans to prosecute the BAE case, Hoseah painted a mixed picture regarding the Government of Tanzania's (GOT's) progress toward addressing the country's endemic corruption problem. On one hand, Hoseah highlighted recent legal reforms and the increasing willingness of both Parliament and press to level corruption charges against the government. On the other hand, he noted the unabated corruption in Zanzibar, weak capacity of his bureau, and President Kikwete's reluctance to implicate former President Benjamin Mkapa or members of Mkapa's inner circle in corruption scandals. Finally, Hoseah reiterated deep concern about his personal safety, explaining that he frequently received threatening letters. In the event of increasing threats to his life, Hoseah said he would not hesitate to seek refuge in another country. END SUMMARY.

PCB: Ready to Prosecute the BAE Radar Deal

------------------------------------------

2. (C) Edward Hoseah, Director General of the Prevention of Corruption Bureau (PCB) told the DCM that the PCB was almost finished with its investigation of the U.K.- Tanzanian BAE radar deal and that it intended to prosecute the case. "We are focused on the 31 percent commission paid to BAE. We understand that businessmen need commissions but the question is whether 31 percent is lawful or not," Hoseah said. He called the deal "dirty" and said it involved officials from the Ministry of Defence and at least one or two senior level military officers.

3. (C) Hoseah said that the two primary suspects, XXXXXXXXXXXX and Shailesh Vithlani, CEO of Merlin International, were currently out of the country but that when they returned the GOT would begin to prosecute. "I have obtained President Kikwete's support to prosecute the culprits once they return to Tanzania," he said, stressing

that prosecution of the case would mark an important milestone in the PCB's struggle. "The real signal of the GOT's political commitment will be when we take this radar case to court," Hoseah said.

4. (C) Note: Shailesh Vithlani is a British citizen who reportedly grew up in Tanzania. He heads Merlin International, a Dar es Salaam based company. Merlin International has been implicated as the agent for Britain's BAE Systems which sold a USD 40 million military radar system to the GOT in 2002. Beyond the BAE radar deal, Merlin has been linked in the media to a range of other high profile government deals including the sale of a Gulfstream presidential jet to former President Benjamin Mkapa. According to a July 13 report in This Day, a local newspaper, at the time of the BAE deal, Vithlani's local partner was Tanil Somaiya of Shivacom Tanzania Ltd.

Promising Signs on Anti-Corruption Front: Legal Reform...

--------------------------------------------- ------------

5. (C) In addition to the possible prosecution of the BAE radar case, Hoseah emphasized that there were other promising signs in Tanzania's fight against corruption. First, he noted that as of July 1 the Anti-Corruption bill had become fully operational, laying the legal groundwork to accelerate the prosecution of corruption. He said that the GOT had almost finalized its "whistle blowers" legislation and that the relationship between the PCB and the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) had improved. "I have a good working relationship with the new DPP and he appears serious about prosecuting corruption." XXXXXXXXXXXX

Stronger Parliament, Press, and Public Support

--------------------------------------------- -

6. (C) A second promising sign regarding anti-corruption efforts which Hoseah stressed was increased support within

the Parliament, press and the general public. "Parliament is now our ally. Members of Parliament are no longer just

spectators; they are starting to ask the tough questions to unveil corruption schemes," Hoseah said. He explained that the media was also making a crucial contribution, showing politicians that they could not hide: "The press has started to bring allegations against XXXXXXXXXXXX. This signals to all politicians that no one is immune." Awareness is growing among the general public too, Hoseah noted, as evidenced by the increased trust in the PCB and the decline of negative news articles about the PCB and its staff.

Initiatives Stemming from the UNCAC

-----------------------------------

7. (C) Finally, Hoseah noted Tanzania's participation in the UN Convention Against Corruption as another reason for

optimism on the anti-corruption front. As a signatory to the UNCAC, Tanzania must not only follow international standards, but will take part in several anti-corruption initiatives in the near future. For example, Tanzania will be subject to a peer review and a gap analysis on its compliance with the convention.

Troubling Signs on Anti-Corruption: Impunity at the Top....

--------------------------------------------- ----------

8. (C) Hoseah then turned to his concerns regarding Tanzania's anti-corruption struggle. He noted that President

Kikwete does not appear comfortable letting the law handle corruption cases which might implicate top level officials.

According to Hoseah, President Kikwete is hesitant to pursue cases which may implicate XXXXXXXXXXXX.

9. (C) Referring to the widespread rumors of corruption within the Bank of Tanzania (Ref B), Hoseah remarked that

XXXXXXXXXXXX In Hoseah's view, Kikwete's recent appointment of three new deputy BOT governors was XXXXXXXXXXXX. The DCM remarked that XXXXXXXXXXXX responses to allegations

XXXXXXXXXXXX were opaque and even projected a sense of impunity. "Your perception is correct," Hoseah responded, adding, "there is a sense of impunity with XXXXXXXXXXXX because he and XXXXXXXXXXXX are so closely intertwined. Kikwete would find it very difficult to fire him."

Complacency on Zanzibar...

---------------------------

10. (C) The ongoing, if not accelerating, level of corruption on Zanzibar is another cause for pessimism in Tanzania's

fight against corruption. While establishment of Tanzania's Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) would indeed force changes on Zanzibar in the long term, Hoseah admitted that he did not believe Zanzibar's current leadership was committed to fighting corruption. With a "free port" and government officials routinely on the payroll of foreign investors, Zanzibar is rife with corruption, Hoseah emphasized. With the momentum of anti-corruption efforts on the Mainland, Zanzibar will have to follow suit, Hoseah said. He added, however, that "in the short term, Zanzibar's President faces the end of his term and it appears that there is actually an acceleration of corruption through acquisition of land and other assets."

Continuing Capacity Constraints...

---------------------------------------

11. (C) Hoseah raised the PCB's lack of capacity as another key challenge to Tanzania's anti-corruption campaign. He

stressed that support from the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA) Threshold Program has assisted the PCB immensely with training prosecutors and investigators. Still, institutional capacity at the PCB is weak and additional capacity building is needed. One area which Hoseah specified for additional training was intelligence or evidence gathering. "Cooperation among law enforcement agencies is still limited and we need to improve our intelligence capabilities," Hoseah told the DCM.

Threat of Stepping on the Wrong Toes

------------------------------------

12. (C) At the end of the meeting, Hoseah reiterated concern for his personal security (Ref A), saying he believed that his life may be in danger. He told the DCM that he had received threatening text messages and letters and was

reminded everyday that he was fighting the "rich and powerful." While Hoseah maintained that he was not scared to

do his job, he said that he could not be seen as "uncompromising." Toward the end of the meeting, he said

quietly to the DCM, "If you attend meetings of the 'inner-circle,' people want you to feel as if they have put

you there. If they see that you are uncompromising, there is a risk." Finally, he made clear that if the threat to his

life reached a certain point, he would flee the country.

Comment: PCB's List of Untouchables: Growing?

--------------------------------------------- --

13. (C) In our January 2007 meeting with Hoseah (Ref A), he said his primary goal as the newly appointed Director General of the Prevention of Corruption Bureau would be to prosecute "big fish." He told us point blank, however, that cases against the Prime Minister or President were off the table.

Now, he has revealed that XXXXXXXXXXXX may also be untouchable, many of whom have ministerial or sub-ministerial posts in Kikwete's government. Thus, while President Kikwete's talk against corruption might be tough, he is clearly treading carefully and the jury remains out on his commitment to tackling high-level corruption.

14. (C) Even if the Kikwete administration does prosecute the BAE case, it is important to note that the U.K. Serious

Fraud Office conducted the lion's share of the investigation. According to Hoseah, after the Fraud Office confronted the GOT with evidence, PCB officials were invited to spend one month in London working with the Serious Fraud Office to finalize the case. Therefore, although the GOT may ultimately point to BAE as a landmark case reflecting

commitment to combating corruption, the decision to prosecute may actually reflect the notoriety of the case in the UK, its notoriety and prominent press play here, and most importantly, the fact that a fully developed case file, brimming with detailed evidence, was presented by UK investigators to the Prevention of Corruption Bureau. In short, to the cynical eye, the GOT may have little recourse other than to prosecute. END COMMENT.

Atleast now we can see with our naked eyes. Hapa hamna haja ya kuwa na political differences. Atleast Hosea tried it out and for sure we know the culprits. Nchi imeoza na watu wanaendelea kuamini kuwa kuwepo kwa mtu sehem fulani wao ndio wamesababisha na si uwezo wa kiutendaji. Ila Hosea sasa yupo kwenye risk kubwa ni vyema atafute mlango wa kutoa. Mkapa needs to come out and TALK. Its time now to know the inner cycle. Kikwete anaonekana hahusiki lakini tunaamini amehusika kwa sababu ameacha watu watanue. Kuna haja ya hili suala kwenda na KATIBA kwa sasa na kuangalia ukomo wa madaraka ya Rais.

Hii habari ya lini? sourced from where?

Nionavyo, it sums up kwanini Hosea has been acting strangely and erratic, kuanzia kule kwene Richmond na hili dudu la rada aliposema kwamba kesi imeisha', kumbe alitishiwa kudedishwa! Lakini uoga wake ni maafa kwa watz wengi maskini wasiojua hili wala lile ambao maendeleo yao ya kijamii yanategemea usimamizi nadhifu wa sheria na taratibu za kiserikali na watumishi wote wa umma. Kwa kuongfezea tu hapo, naona ishu ya vyeo vya kuteuana inavyokuwa kero, yule aliyekuteua anaona kama upo obliged kwake na sio kwa wananchi. Haya ni matatizo ya kujitakia kutokana na taratibu zetu za kijinga za utawala.

" President Kikwete does not appear comfortable letting the law handle corruption cases"...

Sasa tumejua ni kwa nini Mh. Raisi Dr. Jakaya M. Kikwete hatakaki kumuwajibisha Hosea kwa mujibu wa maamuzi ya Bunge la 9 la wananchi wa Tanzania, pia tumwejua Jeuri ya Hosea inatokea wapi kwamba yuko pale kuwalinda Mafisadi maana amekiri mwenyewe kama wikileak ilivyolipoti kwamba mafisadi wanataka a-compromise na ni ajue kwamba ni wao waliomuweka hapo....

Hii Takukuru inafaa ivunjwe na kuundwa upya ikiwa ni tume huru ya kuchunguza na kuwashtaki wala Rushwa... Hosea ameshindwa kazi kwa kukiri kwamba Prime minister na president ni untouchable hata kama wamefanya makosa na inaonekana wazi kwamba past leaders pia wana makosa maana kikwete hataki kutoa precedent itayomfanya akumbukwe maishani mwake...labda anaogopa kwamba akiwashtaki past leaders naye watamkaanga kwa mafuta yake kwa kum-implicate kwenye kesi hizo katika kujitetea kwao na yeye pia kushtakiwa aki-staafu...

Labda JF nisaidieni kujua hili... hivi hawa mafisadi kuna kitu wanachokijua ambacho mtu wa kawaida hawezi kukijua kwamba ukiwa na fedha nyingi sana chafu hapa Duniani na ukiondoka hapa Duniani (yaani ukifa may be baada ya miaka sema 100 hivi) Mwenye Enzi Mungu atakuhesabiwa kwa utajiri uliojimilikishia na kukuongeza matanuzi huko ahela au ndio mwisho wa mchezo ukiisha ikingia kaburini? ni kwa nini basi hawa mafisadi wanaotafuta fedha chafu kwa udi na uvumba hawalali mchana wala usiku bali ni ku-amass mafedha mchana na usiku kutwa? nani wa kuwapa mapumziko angalau mwampe oxygen mtu wa kawaida mlipa kodi wa Tanzania?

Halafu bado unakuta kuna wapuuzi kila siku wako bize kutaka kutuaminisha eti JK ni mpambanaji wa ufisadi. Maneno kama amekasirika sana, amesisitiza hatua kali zichukuliwe, hana mchezo na walarushwa ni baadhi tu ya ngonjera tunazozisikia kila siku lakini kumbe the top czar wa PCCB ana mtazamo huu kuhusu bosi wake.

Je, Kikwete alisema au kufanya nini mpaka Hosea ahitimishe kwamba anaonekana hayuko comfortable kuacha sheria ifuate mkondo wake dhidi ya mafisadi? Je, Hosea atakuwa tayari kutwaambia umma wa Watanzania kilichojiri mpaka akahitimisha hivyo?

Hosea kama uliweza kumwambia ofisa wa ubalozi wa Marekani basi Watanzania tutafurahia sana na kukupongeza ukakiweka bayana hicho ulichomwambia huyo ofisa wa ubalozi na tunakuomba usipate kigugumizi.

Ukitaka kujua jinsi viongozi wetu wasivyo waadilifu utamsikia atakavyoruka kimanga, ofcourse haitakuwa mara ya kwanza na kudai hakuwahi kusema hivyo. Wakati wenzao nchi zilizoendelea wanashutumu huo utoaji siri za hizo cables bila kupinga contents, utawasikia wabongo sasa.

Je kama kibarua kitaota majani ataamua kuziweka bayana siri zote ili Watanzania tujue kilichojiri/kinachojiri? au ataamua kuondoka na siri zake? Je kuna siri nyingine nzito alizozingumza kwa huyo ofisa wa ubalozi ambazo wiki leaks haijaziweka hadharani?

Ofcourse mijadala ile hata mimi niliwahi kuichangia kwa sana tu, lakini hii ya Hosea sasa ni uthibitisho beyond reasonable doubt kwamba kumbe anaye- entertain ufisadi ni JK mwenyewe. No wonder katika kampeni yake hakuwahi hata siku moja kutamka ufisadi. Na watu kama Hosea na vikelele kelele kila wakati,, ooh kesi kubwa za ufisadi zinakuja, mara anasubiri wale x-mass (nadhani hii itakuwa ya 3) ni kuwafanya watanzania majuha tena kupitiliza!!!!!!!!!

Hapa alikuwa anajihakikishia tu kwamba siku moja mambo yakibumbuluka anakwenda Marekani na kupewa Green Card, na wamarekani kuna kitu wamepata ambacho hatukioni katika hizi cables. Kwa sababu siamini kwamba wamarekani na intelligence yao hawajui uchafu wa Hosea, sasa walivyomuandika kama crusader hapo obviously kuna deal linaendelea kati yao na Hosea. Wamarekani wako so cynical kwa kawaida, ningetegemea hata neno moja la kumtilia shaka Hosea, lakini wamemuandika kama mzalendo anayepigana dhidi ya rushwa bila ushirikiano wa rais, Hosea anawapa Wamarekani kitu gani ?

Tunajua yote aliyosema Hosea most probably ni kweli, lakini kuna mengine hawajaweka wazi hapa. Something is missing, Hosea anawapa nini Wamarekani ?

XXXXXXXXXXXX In Hoseah's view, Kikwete's recent appointment of three new deputy BOT governors was XXXXXXXXXXXX. The DCM remarked that XXXXXXXXXXXX responses to allegations

XXXXXXXXXXXX were opaque and even projected a sense of impunity. "Your perception is correct," Hoseah responded, adding, "there is a sense of impunity with XXXXXXXXXXXX because he and XXXXXXXXXXXX are so closely intertwined. Kikwete would find it very difficult to fire him."

Who is or what is XXXXXXXXXXXX???????????????????????????????????
