Former Tanzanian Cabinet Ministers in remand for Corruption
Posted on Wednesday, November 26, 2008 @ 15:27:13 CST by kwpnews

DAR ES SALAAM, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) -- Two former ministers of Tanzania have spent their first night in remand after having appeared in a Dar es Salaam court charged with causing governmental loss via abuse of office.

Former ministers Basil Mramba and Daniel Yona were sent on Tuesday to a local remand in Dar es Salaam after failing to raise a 3.9-billion-shilling (3.25 million U.S. dollars) bail each.

The duo were given until Dec. 5 to raise the money for their bail-out.

Basil Mramba and Daniel Yona appeared in the local court to face 13 counts of abuse of office that caused the government of Tanzania a loss of 11.7 billion shillings (9.75 million dollars).

The two former ministers are scheduled to re-appear in the Kisutu Resident Magistrate's Court on Dec.2.

 Basil Mramba served as finance minister while Daniel Yona served as energy and mineral minister.

 The appearance in court by the two former senior government officials was the result of a three-year investigation by Tanzania' s Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau. The investigation is still on.

 The anti-corruption office along with local police has probed into a Mramba- and Yona-orchestrated gold production agreement.

 The duo were jointly accused of arbitrarily procuring M/S Alex Stewart and its subsidiary company M/S Alex Stewart Government Business Corporation to sign and execute gold production assaying agreement in the country. It was against the country's public procurement law.

  Both accused pleaded not guilty to the charges.
