Revealed: Authorities in Tanzania want kidnapped billionaire’s wealth

THE twist goes on in the abduction incident of the Tanzanian billionaire Mohammed Dewji (Mo), as new developments reveal a silent tug of war between top government officials and the billionaire regarding his wealth.

Sources close to Mo, have informed SAUTI KUBWA that in recent months he was undergoing intense pressure from the government to surrender huge plots of land adjacent to Stigler’s gorge – where the government is planning a 2,100 megawatts (2,800,000 hp) hydroelectric dam.

“Earlier plans to find a legal way of fixing him failed because of his clean record, so they resorted to forcing him to surrender part of his wealth. When he refused they resorted to punishing him this way, seeking ransom,” one of the sources said.

Government sources confirmed the same, adding that the matter had been once raised in a cabinet meeting, with President John Magufuli ordering Land and Settlements Minister William Lukuvi to take immediate action.

One senior minister offered to speak to the billionaire in order to make a smooth execution of the order. But Mo apparently refused to give in. He further told the minister that the same plots of land had been used as collateral for a huge loan from a foreign bank.

“This feedback infuriated the president even further,” one source told SAUTI KUBWA. The president was quoted as saying: “How can he brag as being a very wealthy businessman while he is using our land to borrow money from banks? He must relinquish it… and if he shows arrogance, I will deal with him.”

This president’s quote is similar to his other statements against “wealthy people.” Magufuli seems to nurse sadistic feelings against successful people.

And while some government sources had previously wished to distance the central government from this kidnapping incident, recent developments, plus the apparent silence of the president and prime minister, tend to give a clue about the source of kidnappers’ confidence in a highly guarded area, contradictory statements between police and regional authorities in Dar es Salaam, and the government’s refusal to engage external investigators.

Another highly positioned source informed SAUTI KUBWA that three days ago, at about midnight, the billionaire was moved from a secret location to Magogoni “on orders from above.”

The source added: “Certainly, the kidnappers have all blessings from above. Mo has so far refused to give them the ransom they want; so the big man said, ‘bring him here.’ I don’t know what is happening to him after that.”

Sources believe the government will eventually subdue him, and release him on tough conditions any time soon. They are currently planning a safe exit before calling the media to say “we got him.”

Simon Sirro, the Inspector General of Police, is planning to hold a press conference on Friday morning. This is the first time Sirro will be making a public statement since the billionaire was abducted on Thursday last week at Colosseum Hotel in Oysterbay.

    Let’s enjoy these last few years of freedom before the country becomes a complete dictatorship. We’ve seen this same slow process happen in other countries.

    Good job SAUTI KUBWA. 100% SAUTI is right. These government officials should be exposed. They have been after him for a long time for tax purposes. Magafulis accounts should be exposed. How much is he hiding. His Dr. Degree LOL!!!. That man is a crook. Unless other foreign countries are helping him that is Americans and Israelis.

    Thanks sauti kubwa .This type of authertrian powers without using the courts has been practice of CCM governments
    for a long time . from the first president and such powers have proved the top man becomes dictator. First was the power of detention. After signing human rights the authorites uses such methods to enrich themselves.
    No investor would dare enter Tanzania. This will see proffesionals and viable people leaving the country.
    This will effect the tourism and revenue (tax) from business people and Tanzanians may go back to the they qued for sugar and soap for hours and no toothpaste even (Ujumu)
    CCM should be discredited and its government, they have proud to to make mess of such a fine nation.Nyerere started it and it is in the current party,s veins.
    May God bestow some good goverance to the people of Tanzania. Enough is enough CCM

    Pumbavu wote mnaomkashifu President he’s doing well for your country compared to the previous presidents but you still don’t appreciate kila siku kashfa na lawama tu fanyeni kazi acheni majungu, tumezoea kuibiwa kila siku ndio maana tutaishia kuwa maskini vizazi na vizazi.
    Hata kama kuna ukweli, in order to govern the country some decisions are tough that’s why they called ” EXCECUTIVE DECISIONS” get used to it.
    We tajiri utaombaje mkopo kutoka nje ya nchi kwa kutumia ardhi ya nchi yako kama sio unataka “kuichina” nchi yetu.

    Thank God, Mr. Mo is safe, it was just last week I was planning to invest heavily in Tanzania, in a project that would
    have benefited Tanzania, as I was born in Tanzania I have feelings for Tanzania. It looks the situation in Tanzania
    has not changed since 1964. when I lost everything, plus imprisonment, and got deported due some MBM who did
    not like any one rich. Wealth was in my luck, I build up myself from square one in the country which took me in.
    I was under the impression that Tanzania by now has developed, so my investment will be good for my fellow Tanzanians. Anyway after reading the story of Mr. Mo, I do not think any individual would invest in Tanzania.
    I feel sorry for Tanzania.

    Am I glad I left Tanzania 45 years ago, lock, stock and barrel. Never regretted once except sorry for the natives, the local population who is most caring, kind and truly genuine to it’s core. They have paid the biggest price while the politicians rob the coffers of the public.

    Sorry Mgurumo on your article, I am deeply sceptical about it. Normally, land is a government property, this is in practice in many countries, nevertheless, the piece of land that one owns it is considered a private property and is free for use it according to laws of that country. However, should there be a need to use that land as a national intetest such as the one mentioned in your article tben the govt usually issues a decree to use that area for a public interest and negotiate compensation for it. I dont think Mo will hesitate to reach an agreement on this having seen his interest in working for the nation and willingness to help people. Mr Magufuli has shown a lot of improvement to the economy and the wellbeing of the Tanzanians who majority are below the povery line. Outside and even inside Tz Magufuli is considered as a clean president, hardworking, dedicated to the development of the country. Please look at Rwanda, a nation that came out of chaos and now envied by may countries. Mr Kagame did not take it easy, he was similarly commited to the develpment of his country. So please fellow Tanzanians lets give time and support to Mr Magufuli, i am optimistic this country will be the most admired country.

      Keep the optimism, but the president and his cronies are very corrupt. And because he is seeking absolute power he is corrupting himself absolutely. Pole!

    Tanzanians are among the most naive, stupid and ignorant people I have seen and witnessed. These leaders know this, and they are trying to capitalize and exploit this fact.
    Magufuli and his showbiz crew think everyone is stupid, maybe they are, in the villages where he expects most of his votes from. But in the city he resorts to threats and power show. I think the most cunning of people appear in the nicest of forms.
    I say, let the mother****** extort people, pocket and take all the money for their personal gains, and when all investors are gone and country left in ruins, they can eat and kill themselves!
