Of all the other countries... Fastjet Tz is the only one making loses... The others are making profits... Which means the other countries with fastjet have strong domestic market to support the airline industry while Tz largely relyies on foreigners flying in to give business to the airline industry..

IN SUMMARY

  • That comes hard on the heels of the company’s plans to purchase all shares from the mother company, Fastjet Plc, and to become a wholly-owned Tanzanian airline


Dar es Salaam. Former Home Affairs minister Lawrence Masha has raised his stake in Fastjet Tanzania from the previous four per cent to 68 per cent.

That comes hard on the heels of the company plans to purchase all shares from the mother company, Fastjet Plc, and to become a wholly-owned Tanzanian airline.

Speaking yesterday to The Citizen, Mr Masha, who was on November 6, 2018, appointed as the first executive chairman of the airline, said last week he bought 47 per cent of the company shares owned by locals and other 17 owned by Fastjet Plc.

That means he is now the majority shareholder, leaving the remaining stake in the hands of South African Hein Kaiser, who owns 32 per cent stake of the airline.

The plan to purchase all stake from the mother company and become a Tanzanian entity came a month after Fastjet Plc had on September announced that it was set to stop all funding to Fastjet Tanzania with immediate effect.

However yesterday, the company’s public relations and marketing executive, Ms Lucy Mbogoro, said the company was looking for strategic investors.

Fastjet Plc is a British/South African-based holding company for a group of low-cost carriers that operate in Africa.

The company’s stated aim is to become the continent’s first low-cost, pan-African airline, and the operation was initially
created with the acquisition of Fly540.

Flights in Fastjet’s own name commenced in November 2012 in Tanzania.

The strategy is to create locally incorporated airlines or a series of licensees to operate services, using a common branding, operational standards and sales platform.

In Summary

  • The bank’s Logistic Performance Index (LPI) released yesterday ranks Kenya at position 42 globally after it scored an average score of 3.33 points.

The World Bank has classified Kenya as the best logistics performer in East Africa as continued removal of administrative controls and improved infrastructure pay dividends.



The bank’s Logistic Performance Index (LPI) released yesterday ranks Kenya at position 42 globally after it scored an average score of 3.33 points.

By comparison, the survey ranks Uganda and Tanzania at positions 58 and 61 respectively. Uganda has an average score of 3.04 while Tanzania has 2.99 points.

The LPI rates performance from one (worst) to five (best) based on data collected from more than 1,200 professionals from 160 countries.

Kenya’s logistics performance is second on the continent after South Africa which took position 20 in the global survey with a score of 3.78.

The LPI shows that the country has greatly improved trade flow and reduced the cost of doing business for importers and exporters.

“Efficient logistics connects firms to domestic and international markets through reliable supply chain networks”, the World Bank says in a report titled Connecting to Compete 2016 which it released yesterday

It continues: “Conversely, countries characterised by low logistics performance face high costs, not merely because of transportation costs but also because of unreliable supply chains, a major handicap in integrating and competing in global value chains.”

The bank acknowledges that supply chains may be complex but insists their performance is largely dependent on country characteristics, “especially the soft and hard infrastructure and institutions that logistics requires to operate well, such as imports, regulations, procedures, and behaviours.”

Improved performance of Kenya’s transport facilities is set to lift the country’s external trade profile. A seaport state, Kenya has faced competition from Tanzania, Eritrea and Djibouti which are all eying landlocked countries in the region.

The number of police checks have dropped on the Northern Corridor, same as weighbridges which are now four, down from six.

The government automated the Mariakani weighbridge to cut on time used in clearance and to do away with cases of corruption — factors that have facilitated inland and foreign trade and Kenya’s competitiveness in a global platform.

Kenya has also recently automated the issuance of the certificate of origin. The LPI says rapid improvements can be achieved regionally if countries have a strong political will and align their efforts to implementing administrative reform.

No place in Tanzania that looks like Northern Kenya i.e. disconnected n marginalized..
Tanzania has the best road networks than any country in EAC. We are competing with SA only when it comes to entire Africa. Lakin hawa mnayang'au wa Nairobi wanatuonea wivu balaa....maneno mengi kuliko vitendo.

I see after watching a couple of videos you have realized the ETCS is not sensors for preventing cows from being hit by a train but rather it's a traffic control system for train. More specifically European Train Control System ETCS was designed by combining different signaling system into one so that cross border trains in EU region can be able to cross into each others country seamlessly without running the risk of colliding with other trains due to incompatible signaling systems.... Comprende?


I also see you have now shifted the argument to Electromagnets and GPS.

The first mistake you did right there is try to Google a European technology ETCS (European Train Control System) and a Chinese built railway on the same sentence.. I would be surprised if you got a single hit on Google. It also means you just kept kept obsessing over ETCS without really understanding what it is essentially. It's just a Train(traffic) control system TCS. More specifically it's an automated TCS. And the main agents that make it work is by use of sensors.

Once you understand that basic stuff then you will know electromagnets and GPS are just sensors basically, that are meant to detect a train and it's exact position at that particular state in time and relay the info to the central command... (BTW do you know that the whole GPS system of satellite are owned by the US govt? Do you know that as a result of That China doesn't officially use GPS)
With that understanding at the back of your mind, you will also realized that there are many other sensors that can facilitate a TCS to know the speed/direction/position of a train.

So just because TZ trains will have an onboard GPS (am not saying Kenyan ones don't have) which is a very cheap thing to purchase... there are many other sensors that can do the job of a GPS and tell position. For example Kenyan SGR actually has a dedicated physical Fiber optic line with its own independent power line running all the way from Mombasa to Nairobi with sensors. So why rely on GPS satellite, owned by a third party to tell you your exact position when instead each sensor on the fiber optic knows it's exact location along the route based on a ping (in real time) or a static position configured on the sensor.

Source:
_________
When the Sunday Standard travelled along the line last week, engineers were testing an automatic signaling system and fine-tuning the train scheduling routine. The signaling system operates on a fibre optic cable that runs parallel to the line supported by an independent electricity supply.
SGR an invaluable learning chance, say local workers

__________

Next time I will bring pictures of the signalling and control system on Kenya SGR.
:D:D:D:D you are finished......You were tricked by Chinese nationals and yet they built your railways at very high costs....

For how much loan? When will you start paying this loan?? You guys are finished....
Kenya is set to invite private investors to bid for construction of 29 more berths along the Indian Ocean coastline as part of the Sh500 billion Lamu port, the largest in the region.
The State is already building the first three berths at a cost of Sh48 billion funded by taxpayers,
Nairobi targets investors in 27 more Lamu port berths
