john mashaka on foreign investors and investments

John Mashaka
Foreign investment is the modern propeller of sustainable economic growth; it creates new enterprises, expands a country’s foreign markets access, boost research, and development of local know how. Foreign investors and multination’s are often welcomed to create jobs, increase government revenue through corporate, and payroll taxes. Foreign investors provide a host country with an opportunity to develop its natural and human resources. They are supposed to improve living conditions of the people in the host country. These are the benefits we expected of foreign investors and multinationals, not the breeding of chaos, perpetuation of cycle of bitterness, misery, economic injustice, and hopelessness upon the people.

For a while now, foreign investors in Tanzania have been accused of arrogance, and gross human rights abuses. They are being associated with slavery, and indenture servitude of their local employees, they are exposing thousands to radiation through high powered body scanning ex-ray machines in the mines. Some of these companies have left scores dead without a single person in their chain of command being held accountable. River Tigite in Nyamongo for example, is polluted with toxic chemicals/metals, that has killed livestock, and left many lives permanently ruined and neither the government nor the investor has taken responsibility for the lives lost. Commissions formed have been good as nothing, as their reports are shelved.

Our natural resources are being depleted at an alarming rate. Foreign investors, and multinationals are stripping bare our land. These companies hardly pay royalties, and taxes, neither do they develop through corporate responsibilities the areas in which they operate. They are on a looting spree, operating with impunity. They are bringing into the country thousands of foreign employees, including truck and folk lift drivers, yet Tanzania’s unemployment stands at 26%. These people are paying themselves, tens of thousands of dollars a month with money from our land, while the natives are dying of hunger and bullets. Acts that are breeding deep hatred, resentment, and animosity instead of prosperity.

A very influential law maker in the East African Legislative Assembly narrated to me a very disturbing incident he encountered in Zanzibar. He was denied both entry and accommodation at an Italian owned hotel because he was black, and his position meant nothing to the powerful, and well connected Italian investor. The legislator reported the matter to the authorities, but nothing was done about it. It was quite clear that, Blacks were not allowed in this exclusive, white only hotel. The MP wondered why Tanzanians are making so much noise about Ugandans, Kenyans, and even Rwandese taking their land, yet Italians, Arabs, Chinese, and even Somalis purchasing millions of acres at will. Who should they fear the most, East Africans or the influx of far-easterners?

While in Tanzania, last month, I came across two, very bizarre, encounters. Travelling from Mwanza to Tarime, in the middle of nowhere, roughly one hundred and twenty miles from Mwanza, a frail looking South African backpacker, who had been in the country for more than thirteen months, stood in the middle of the road flagging me for a ride. Knowing this man was not a native, I stopped to help, just to meet a shocker of my life. The man had no money, and was moving from town to town through begging. The mystery deepens when the man got irate with my probing questions, trying to figure out how he got in Tanzania, his mission, survival and so forth. Out of the tens of questions I posed, his answer was simple; God was providing everything in his spiritual journey, and highly believed he was going to reach his final destination (Zanzibar) through grace of God.

This strange man, however, had a plan, and knew his way, including a special gate in Serengeti where he would cross  free of charge on his way  from Musoma to Singida, Dodoma, Dar, and finally to Zanzibar.  As citizens of Tanzania, we could not cross into Serengeti without paying the minimum fee. Even after crossing into Serengeti back in 2007; we were denied entry into a lodge because the wardens believed we could have been a danger to “Wageni”.  Worst of all, they forced us to leave their premises at 7pm, and drive back almost 100 kilometers, else they would not guarantee our safety, and this was after we produced all the documentation to show we were there as domestic tourists. We slept in the car, in which were periodically visited by some of the deadliest animals you can think of. I realized how useless a Tanzanian’s life is, in front of a foreigner!

Two weeks after meeting this strange man, at one of the entry points, I met a middle aged Chinese lady, who could barely speak English or Swahili, with a green, United Republic of Tanzania passport as her form of identity. I was shocked but not surprised because this was in Tanzania. I was not shocked because she was Chinese, but how she obtained the passport considering most Tanzania passport holders, speaks Swahili and some English. I cannot answer the question on how she obtained the passport, but can confidently say that she did not steal it. She obtained it through some of our trusted custodians of our safety and security. Logical mind would pose a question, how dangerous could this be to our economic and national security?

There is serious security and economic implications for foreigners to drive around the country, with hundreds of millions in the trunk of their Range-Rovers; Aggressively purchasing land, and other properties at prices far above their market value.  Yes, a Somali man outbid me in Bunju in 2009, unjustifiably offering 120million in cash for a piece of land which, in fair market price could not fetch more than 45million, and this brings me into making an assumption that, foreign investors in the country are not the problem. The problem is ourselves; we Tanzanians. 

We are the problem because we don’t have patriots. Our broken system is the problem, greed is our problem. We are signing bogus contracts; we are issuing residence, and work permits to people who don’t deserve them for the sake of MONEY. Our leaders are selling our birth rights of land, and passports to foreigners leaving its poor citizens in the cold as second class citizens.

Our leaders must STOP selling our country, an act that is charging peace abiding citizens against investors and foreigners. They are selling their own children’s and grandchildren’s future. Our leaders must know that, sentiment on the street regarding foreigners looting and taking advantage of the country is not flattering, it is scary. They must listen to the voices of the youth craving for jobs; young people whose jobs in hotels, supermarkets, pharmacies, daycares, and even those of driving folk lift in mines are all taken by foreigners. They must know that, they are breeding insecurity as Young men in Kariakoo and elsewhere running out of options due to their inability to compete with the well financed foreign hawkers. Our leaders are creating a time bomb they won’t diffuse when natural reaction to hopelessness takes its course. 


Of course, they must welcome investors, but with caution.

Mungu Ibariki Tanzania

    Jibu lako kaka Mashaka ni kuwa bongo ni kichwa cha mwendawazimu, period.
    Hakuna nchi wala kiongozi, wote ni selfish,wanajilimbikizia mapesa kwa vizazi vyao bila kujali wananchi wanowaongoza.

    Ukichunguza hao wawekezaji wana-share na viongozi wa nchi,kwa hiyo viongozi wanajua kinachoendelea, na wao ndio wanalinda maslahi yao kwa kuwadidimiza ndugu zao.
    Hawa wageni wasingeweza kupindisha sheria za uwekezaji kama si kulindwa na wenyeji.
    Sasa hivi ukiingia mare-kani kama mwanafunzi hupewi namba kama zamani,kwa sababu hawataki ufanye kazi, soma rudi kwenu,kazi ni kwa ajili ya watu wao,hivi sasa wachina wamejaa bongo, esp. kkoo, wakifanya kazi za kuchuuza,je nani amewapa vibali vya kuishi na kufanya kazi duni?kazi ambazo wazawa walikuwa wakifanya kujipatia rizki.
    Wengi wa viongozi wetu wamesomeshwa na serikali ambayo leo wanaidhulumu na kujinufaisha wao na familia zao tu,wanashindwa hata kupay back to their community.

    Bwana Mashaka, I must admit, this piece of yours touches the very core of 'make up' as Tanzanians. It is not nature - it is nurture. Majuzi nilikuwa namstaafu mmoja akawa anacheka sasa sana kuhusu concept ya 'kujivua gamba'. Lakini akaniambia nijambo zuri, ilatu, tujivue kabisa siyo nusus nusu. tujivue Azimio la Arusha, tujivue uhuru - maana baada ya miaka 50 bado tunatawaliwa kisakolojia - we are not free - tunajidanganya.
    Siku zote tumeambiwa sisi ni waafrika - kumbe siyo - waafrika wenzetu ndiyo threat kwetu as you observed - kumbe tunawachukia waafrika wenzetu na kukumbatia 'wakoloni wetu'. Tukaambiwa sisi niwatanzania - leo tunabaguana eti yule ni muhiddin na yule ni charles. kwenye maofisi ukabila kimya kimya - angalia tu majina ya wafanyakazi wa taasisi mbili - TRA na BOT.
    Namshukuru sana Mzee Mwinyi kwa kutufungulia dunia ili tuone wenzetu wanafanya nini(vyombo huria vya habari)na tujiweke vipi kuipeleka Tanzania duniani. Namshukuru Mkapa kwa sera yake ya utandawazi iliyotufungua macho zaidi na kutufanya tujue sisi siyo ka-kijiji bali ni sehemu ya familia kubwa kubwa inayoitwa dunia. Laikini wote nao bado walikuwa na tongotongo zilizobakia kutokana na kuuenzi ujamaa - kwangu mimi ulikuwa ujima tu!
    Hatuna enterpreneurship skills -Dogo akifungua saluni ya nywele ya kisasa na Bone naye anafungua zake tano. Kwa mtaji huo huoangeweza kuanzisha ka-kiwanda ka kutengeneza mishumaa - na kwa mgao uliopo mbona angekuwa anasaidia watoto yatima kila mwezi!
    Nchi yetu inahitaji elimu ya ujasiria mali - kwamba wekeza leo, utaanza kula matunda baada ya miaka labda miwili ya 'hardwork' - lakini ukitoka hapo mwanangu unaweza kupeta hadi wanao wote wamalize shule wakati wewe kila mwaka unachukua likizo kwenda na mkeo mkapumzike Mauitius,Zanzibar, Mombasa, - Mkaangalie wanyama serengeti,selous, Masai Mara. Mtembelee sehemu za kihistoria kama Olduvai Gorge, Timboktou, Giza (the pyramids). Am I dreaming? NO! Inawezekana!

    Asante sana kaka hii nchi haina viongozi kabisa. Kama Waziri mkuu mwenyewe anaweza kutamka kwamba nchi ni kubwa sana hakuna haja ya watu kuwa na wasiwasi na wageni kupewa ardhi, kama yeye ni waziri mkuu na anakuwa na mawazo hayo unategemea nini kutoka kwa anaowaongoza? Kama Raisi na waziri mkuu wanadiriki kusema hawajui kwa nini hii nchi ni masikini wewe unategemea hao wengine si ndio kabisa. Tazizo la umeme wanasingizia ni mvua, kwani hilo tatizo limeanza leo? Hizo program zao za miaka mitano, kumi n.k huwa wanapanga nini? Nini maana ya sensa, hawajui kwamba idadi ya watu huwa inaongezeka na mahitaji ya huduma mbalimbali zinatakiwa kuongezeka?

    Matatizo yote yanatokeya wakati waziri peke yake ana mamlaka ya kutowa leseni za kuchimba madini. Leo watanzania wanoishi kwenye maeneo ya madini wamezidi kuwa maskini toka wanyanganywe machimbo yao na kupewa waekezaji. halafu hawo wawekezaji pia hawalipi kodo mafuta na vitu vyote wanavyoiingiza tanzania, Huu nu uharamiya wa kuibiya nchi mamilioni ya pesa. Wakristo na waislamu waungani kurekebisha kanuni za madini. Na kuna mashirika ya madini walikuwa wanatakiwa kulipa asilimiya 1 ya mapato kusaidiya sehemu za madini. Mpaka leo hawajalipa. Watu wanauwawa serikali haichukuwi hatuwa. Je itabdi tupeleke kesi zetu ulaya kwenye mahakama ya ICC na mahakama za London kudai fidiya za watu wote waliouwawa toka mwaka1986 pale Bunyahulu Niko tayari kusaidiya ndugu zangu watanzania kuwashtaki mashirika ya madini kwa fidiya katika mahakama ya uingereza. E mail yangu ni hii nina marafiki wengi wana sheriya wataweza kuchukuwa hizo kesi. Inasikitisha kuona kuwa masikini watanzania haki zao zina kanyagwa na hawo waliowachaguwa na ni watanzania kama wao. Walipo wekeza kwenye madini ni karibu miaka 24, wamesharusdisha gharama na faida. sasa hivi bei ya dhahbu ni dollar 1560 kwa ounce moja na serikali inapew dola 45 je hi ni haki? Kuna watu waliuza nchi siku nyingi na wao na vizazi wao ndiyo wananufaika. kama serikali haitaki kusikiliza basi waislamu na wakristo waungane kufanya maandamano makubwa nchini ili kupiganiya haki za watanzania. mashiriki ya mmadini walipe kodi asilimiya 30 itasaidiya kujenga malilniki kila wilaya na kata zote tanzania na piya watoto kupata elimu za bure za msingi. Hilo lina wezekana kama rasli mali hizo zitatumiwa ki haki

    Kapuya kishalitolea ufafanuzi bungeni, kadri mnavyoruhusu wawekezaji kuwekeza nchini ndivyo hao machinga wa kuuza bidhaa zao watakavyoongezeka. According to Kapuya, wabongo tumekuwa wakwapuaji sana hivyo hakuna njia nyingine isipokuwa kwa serikali kuwaruhusu hao machinga ili kuwanusuru wawekezaji na ukwapuaji wetu!
    Mkuu yote unayosema ni kweli. Subiri siku yatokee watu wataanza kuuliza how did it happen? Kila mtu anaona, sasa hivi Tanzania unaweza kwenda Guest house yoyote unnoticed, unaweza kufungua duka kwenye residential areas, hao unaowaita wafanya kazi kwenye NGO wanakwanyua hela nyingi sana zinazotoka kwao. Ukiangalia sehemu kubwa ya hela zinazotolewa na hao donors wanakwapua hao watu wa NGOs, na kwenda kuziinvest huko kwao.

    Tuna watanzania wengi sana wanaoweza kufanya biashara ya magari, why the hell would we allow pakistanis to do the job of which Mpenda and Mchanga can do? si ujinga huu? hapa huwezi kusema kuna ukwapuaji. Pamoja na ukweli kuwa sisi ni wadokozi, kama mchanga akijiuzia gari lake , au mpemba akijiuzia gari lake atamkwapulia nani?

    Mipaka yetu ni very porous, sasa tumeingiliwa mpaka chumbani. Na viongozi wetu wanacheka. Ona sasa RA anatamba ameshika ikulu, Nec, CC media na kutuendesha anavyopenda. Ametufanya tuanze kunyosheana vidole wenyewe yeye akiwa anapeta

Hata receptionist atoke huko. Kuna ofisi niliwahi kwenda, the reciptionist was a foreigner,hata hizi jamani. Zaid ni uzembe wa watendaji wa uhamiaji na wizara ya kazi pamoja na utumishi. Natoa mfano wa ofisi moja ambayo mtu alikuja kama tourist, normally unapata three months visa, then akafanya ujanja siwezi kuwa na uhakika kuwa ni rushwa,baadaye akapata work permit toka P O PSM (presidents Office Public service Management, after more tha 5 years ikagundilika makosa, then wakaamuru aondoke, Chini ya miezi mitatu karudi kwa kampuni nyingine, njia alizotumia sijui. sasa ingeukuwa kwao unadhani ungeruhusiwa rudi, tena Passport ingegongwa muhuri wa wewe usirudi,kwani ulivunja kanuni, hivyo kuna shida kwenye utendaji

    nilikuwa nasoma gazeti la Raia Mwema makala ya Johnson Mbwambo.Nilivutiwa na hoja yake kwamba serekali ya China ina sera ya kuwasambaza raia wake sehemu mbali mbali duniani hasa Afrika kwasababu hawana mahali pa kuwaifadhi.

    China inakadiriwa kuwa na idadi ya watu 1.3 bilioni kwa sasa. China ina sera ya kununua ardhi hasa katika nchi za Afrika zinazopokea msaada kutoka China,tayari imeshanyakua mamilioni eka nchini Kongo Brazaville.Sitashangaa kama wachina watakujapewa mamilioni ya eka hapa Tanzania au tumesahau mkuu wa kaya tayari kesha wamegea waarabu wakati ndugu zetu Wameru mkoani Arusha hawana ardhi ya kutosha hadi wakaamua kumtolea uvivu Mheshimiwa Kimaro.

    Mwaka jana mwishoni nilipita mitaa ya Kariako nilidhani niko Shanghai jinsi wachina walivyojazana. Aina ya biashara wanayofanya wachina ni pamoja na kuuza maua,vitambaa,vyombo vya udongo na biashara zote ndogo ndogo wanazoweza kufanya wazawa.

    Raia wa Kenya wamejaa kupita kiasi hasa katika sekta ya utalii, madereva, mahotelia katika mji wa Arusha hakuna mahali utakapowakosa. Nawashangaa idara ya uhamiaji sijui wanafanya kazi gani.Nilipata bahati ya kutembelea mbuga za wanyama mwezi uliopita yaani kila hotel utakayotia mguu imejaa wafanyakazi kutoka Kenya. Sio siri hawa jamaa wamechukuwa ajira za watanzania yaani mpaka mbeba mizigo ya wageni ni wao!
