Africa:IOT Fleet Management Market to Hit $15m By 2025

analysisBy Victor Kiprop

Increased adoption of mobile technologies by fleet management companies is driving up demand for their services globally.

Consequently the global Internet of Things (IoT) fleet management market is expected hit over $15 million in value by 2025, from just over $3 million last year.

A recent report by Transparency Market Research shows that demand for this market is expected to grow by 20 per cent every year between 2017 and 2025, boosted largely by increased popularity of smartphones and the need to optimise processes.

The proliferation of mobile devices and the advent of IoT has enabled firms to integrate, track and monitor fuel management and remote diagnostic processes.

The IoT is basically a network comprised of several smart devices including sensors mobile devices and cameras that use wireless technology to gather and share electronic information.

The report further notes that incorporating IoT in fleet management helps to manage labour costs, improve fleet maintenance procedures, increases response times and enhances customer satisfaction.

Telematics solutions

North America remains the most lucrative region for IoT fleet management market players with a number of original equipment manufacturers such as Daimler and Volvo trucks are already offering telecommunication and informatics (telematics) solutions.

Telematics solutions help facilitate data transmission in real time, and made easier by the advancements in mobile technology and the increased penetration of smartphones.

“Mobile technology has evolved tremendously in ways which benefit businesses and their fleet. With smartphones or tablets, companies can employ active fleet monitoring without the need to buy additional equipment. This helps them to make significant savings and meaningful decisions on their businesses,” said Safetrac Ltd general manager Ruth Kang’ong’oi.

According to the Future of IoT in Enterprise 2017 report, while many global transport businesses expect IoT to revolutionise the industry, many organisations lack the skills and data-sharing processes required to generate maximum value from data generated by IoT solutions.

Alikiba Signs Diamond’s Ex

By Thomas Matiko

Alikiba has signed the gorgeous Tanzanian model Jokate Kidoti Mwengelo, who also happens to be Diaomnd’s ex, according to reports.

He signed the model to his management and recording label Rockstar 4000.

The revelation about the new professional relationship between the two friends was made by a once upon a time popular bongo star Abby Skills, who is currently trying to resurrect his career under Alikibas’ label that also boast of heavyweight Ommy Dimpoz who was signed two months ago.

“Mimi pia nipo chini ya lebo yake, Alikiba ni bosi wangu, kuna Abdu Kiba, kuna Salim, kuna Heri, kuna Jokate. Lakini sipaswi kuyaweka haya wazi kwa kuwa ni siri” Abby Skills has disclosed.

(I too am under his recording label, Alikiba is my boss. Under him we also got Abdu Kiba, Salim, Heri as well as Jokate all signed to the label (RockStar 4000). However I wasn’t supposed to leak this information, It was supposed to be a secret)

Alikiba and Jokate have been operating in secrecy and this would probably explain why they didn’t make such a news public so as to avoid the public scrutiny.

RUBADA ‘Had No Financial Muscle to Undertake Stiegler’s Power Plant’

By Alvar Mwakyusa

IT has now come to light that the Controller and Auditor General (CAG) had proposed way back that the Rufiji Basin Development Authority (RUBADA) did not have the financial muscle to undertake the 2.4bn US dollars Stiegler’s Gorge Hydro-power plant.

And just recently, the National Assembly endorsed in its latest session a bill to disband the authority after it came to light that it had outlived its purpose.

The CAG report for financial year 2015/2016 had recommended that the task for executing the ambitious 2,100 hydro-power plant should be put on a public institution such as the Tanzania Electric Supply Company Limited (Tanesco).

The National Audit Office of Tanzania (NAOT)’s Chief External Auditor, Mr Johannes Kisiri, explained yesterday that RUBADA was cash-strapped and thus unable to oversee implementation of the mega project.

The official made the remarks in Dar es Salaam yesterday during a one-day training and launching of the fourth edition of summarised CAG reports for 2015/2016 which was attended by journalists and members of the civil society organisations (CSOs).

“In the report, the CAG was categorical that RUBADA had no financial muscle to execute the project and instead other public institutions with capability such as Tanesco should be considered,” he explained.

Speaking in Dodoma recently, Attorney General George Masaju informed the House that the workers and assets of RUBADA would be transferred to other government institutions.

For his part, President John Magufuli has had meetings with Ethiopian officials and local experts in dam construction infrastructure where he expressed his intention to have the hydroelectric project on southeastern Tanzania’s Rufiji River implemented.

The project follows an agreement entered on March 31, 2017 between Dr Magufuli and the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Hailemariam Desalegn, when he came to Tanzania for a two-day State visit.

The Ethiopian leader promised Dr Magufuli to bring dam experts to help the country in the implementation of the project, basing on the fact that Ethiopia had made a commendable step on the country’s power generation.

Shortly thereafter, a delegation of experts led by the Ethiopian Minister for Water, Irrigation and Electricity, Seleshi Bekele, arrived in Tanzania to share experiences with their Tanzanian counterparts.

The Ethiopian minister pointed to the fact that the project will be of great importance in supporting the Tanzanian government’s industrialisation drive.

Dr Bekele said his country was presently generating 4,300 megawatts of electricity from hydro sources, hinting that Addis Ababa envisages 17,000 megawatts by 2020.

Meanwhile, the State owned power utility, Tanesco, owes independent, emergency power producers and other suppliers accumulative debts amounting to staggering 863.48bn/- as of June 30, last year.

The ballooning debts, according to report of the Controller and Auditor General (CAG) for fiscal year 2015/2016, is mainly due to the fact that the power utility purchases one unit for 544.65/- from the private producers and sell the same at just 279.35/-.

This translates to a loss of 265.30/- for every unit that Tanesco purchases from the independent and emergency power producers.

Stage Set for Countries to Renegotiate for Fair Mining Deals

By Socrates Mbamalu

The paradox of plenty is a reality for many African countries. There’s an abundance of natural resources such as oil, gas and minerals, but there hasn’t been much economic growth and development for many countries. The natural resources abundant in most African countries tend to benefit not the communities and countries within which the minerals are extracted. Tanzania’s President John Magufuli has started the process of renegotiating the mining contracts his country has with various mining companies. Other African countries need to borrow a leaf out of Tanzania’s book.

The resource curse, also known as the paradox of plenty, is a reality for many African countries. The term refers to the paradox that countries with an abundance of natural resources such as oil and certain minerals, tend to have less economic growth, and worse development outcomes than countries with fewer natural resources, for various reasons. The natural resources abundant in most African countries tend to benefit not the communities and countries within which the minerals are found and extracted.

It is concerning to note that many of the mining deals on the continent benefit the American, European and Asian companies operating in the various communities more than they benefit African people. The resources should be a blessing for the African countries and communities. Recently, Tanzania’s President John Magufuli ordered a review of a Petra Diamonds Ltd contract. Petra Diamonds owns 75% of the mines while the Tanzanian government owns 25%. Magufuli asked public officials to resign over the outcome of an investigation conducted into the mining sector.

The Tanzanian government confiscated diamonds worth $15 million. The diamonds were being exported to Antwerp, Belgium. The Tanzania government claimed the diamonds were undervalued and placed the value of the diamonds at $29.5 million.

The Tanzanian government plans to increase the ownership of the mines to 50%. The story of the Tanzanian mining industry is no different from what happens in many places in Africa. Most foreign mining companies come to the continent and have ownership of more than 70% of the mines.

Tanzania’s Finance and Planning Minister, Phillip Mpango said “Tanzania is likely losing more than $46 million each year from the export of under-cleared diamonds through this airport.”

Zimbabwe’s Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa this year told Zeina Badawi on the BBC programme Hardtalk that the missing $15 billion from Marange diamonds was a result of “trade mispricing”. Trade mispricing has reportedly been costing Africa billions of dollars. While not exonerating political figures alleged to have benefitted from corrupt deals in the mining industry, the issue of trade misplacing in the oil, gas, and minerals industries in Africa is a fundamental issue, which needs to be addressed. There needs to be transparency, and legislation enacted to ensure that extractive and trading companies across the continent are more transparent with their payments for minerals.

It is concerning to note that Zambia is Africa’s second largest producer of copper yet one of the poorest countries on the continent. In 2004, the Konkola Copper Mine (KCM) was sold to Vedanta Resources in 2004 at a cost of US$25million from a sale price of US$400 million. The Zambian government and people were ripped off by the Vedanta Resources, an Indian company. The Konkola Copper Mine is the largest copper mine in Africa.

Years after buying KCM, the owner of Vedanta Anil Agarwal was quoted as saying in a widely circulated video that “We took over the company. It’s been 9 years, and since then, every year it is giving us a minimum of $500 million plus $1 billion every year; it has been continuously giving back. It’s a matter of taking a chance.”

Zambia’s copper production is in the hands of four big companies, Barrick Lumwana, First Quantum Minerals (FQM) Kansanshi, Mopani and KCM (Konkola Copper Mines). Barrick Lumwana is wholly owned by the Canadian company Barrick, which is the world’s largest gold-mining company. The Zambian government is a minority shareholder in all the companies.

Overwhelming evidence was presented about the operations of Vedanta by Foil Vedanta. The organisation, Foil Vedanta exposed actions such as tax evasion, misdeclaration of profits, environmental devastation and abuses of worker’s rights. The copper industry is responsible for 60% of Zambia’s foreign earnings.

Unlike Zambia and many other African countries, Botswana is one country that got things right. Botswana is the world’s leading producer of diamond and it is a great example of how to convert mineral wealth into social and economic growth. World Bank early this year called on Botswana to make its large mining contracts public so as to improve transparency. Botswana’s Minerals Minister Sadique Kebonang said in response that “no country signs transparent agreements. Commercial agreements are confidential by nature because of the sensitive of information they have… even the World Bank, when they give us loans some details of the loan agreement are kept secret.”

Most of Botswana’s foreign exchange comes from its mining industry. In 1966, Botswana was the third poorest country in the world. The country had just gained independence from the 80 year occupation of Britain and was faced with famine. The landlocked country only had 12km of paved road and 22 graduates. In 1967, Botswana discovered diamonds and that was all it needed to discover.

While other African countries were fighting wars after discovering oil, or in the case of Congo and Nigeria fighting secession, Botswana was rapidly developing. When Botswana gained independence its diamond mines were under De Beers. Just like other foreign mining companises such as Vedanta in Zambia, which exploited the countries they were extracting from, De Beers was no different. Botswana renegotiated the contract they had with De Beers. According to Venatius Oforka’s book The Bleeding Continent: How Africa Became Impoverished and Why It Remains Poor he said, “Botswana’s moral rectitude in relation to governance is clearly manifested in the struggle for renegotiation of the diamond contract. It was essentially pursued for the interests of the country at large and not for the benefit of any particular individual person or group of persons or for political cronyism.”

The mining industries in many African countries benefit a few individuals and the foreign companies that come to extract the mineral resources. African governments have to renegotiate the mining contracts signed in the interest of their countries and communities to convert mineral wealth into tangible social and economic growth.

Dar Pulls Thel Plug On Non-EPZ Kenyan Goods

By Gerald Andae

Tanzania has blocked preferential access for Kenyan textile goods manufactured outside the Export Processing Zone (EPZ), citing unfair competition for its own manufacturers.

“This is informed by the fact that Kenya has allowed textile and apparel manufactures operating in the EPZ to off load their final textile products in the Kenyan market duty free,” Tanzania stated in a communiqué from a joint meeting on September 2 in Dar-es-Salaam to iron out trade wrangles between the two countries.

“This in effect may hinder similar products from Tanzania from being competitive when sold in the Kenyan market.”

Kenya in May cleared firms operating in its EPZs to sell up to an expanded 40 per cent of their products in the local market as part of strategy to boost sales and help prop the struggling industry.

The EPZ firms were initially only allowed to sell 20 per cent of their products in the Kenyan market with the rest sold under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (Agoa) — a trade pact that allows US buyers to import goods from a number of sub-Saharan African countries without paying taxes.

Dumping products

The gesture has, however, sparked a trade spat between the two countries amid concern that the Kenya’s expanded domestic market sales quota for EPZ firms could lead to dumping of products in the Tanzanian market.

“Tanzania is not according preferential treatment to Kenya because it is now enjoying a stay of application for textiles and footwear. Moreover, 96 per cent of textile produced in Kenya is sold under AGOA market and thus the mechanism for monitoring such export is difficult” Tanzania stated in the communiqué.

According to the document, Kenya raised concern that textile and apparel goods manufactured outside its EPZs were being denied preferential access to the Tanzanian market despite provisions of Legal Notice No.84 OF 2017 by the East African Community (EAC).

Tanzania nonetheless argued that as per the Legal Notice, Kenya was granted a stay of application of the common external tariff (CET) rate on garments and leather footwear manufactured in the EPZ on the 20 per cent of the annual production allowed in the protocol to be sold within the domestic Kenyan market for one year, duty-free.

Charges

As a result the sale of these products in any of the EAC states is subject to duties, levies, and other charges provided in the CET when exported, Tanzania argued.

Kenya objected the assertions and requested Tanzania to grant access to her textile and apparel products as long as the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) issued a certificate of origin and a list of firms operating both within and outside the EPZ.

Tanzania stood its ground and undertook to audit Kenya’s dual tax regime to ascertain the impact on her textile sector.

Ecoenergy Lodges $500m Claim After Govt Revoked Its Land Title

By Citizen Reporter

Dar es Salaam — EcoEnergy Group has filed a $500 million arbitration claim against the Tanzanian government over its decision to unilaterally revoke land title for a multi-billion Bagamoyo sugar project.

The case has commenced at the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the World Bank organ, which is based in Washington D.C.

The Commissioner for Lands informed the Bagamoyo EcoEnergy Limited in November, 2017 that the government had resolved to revoke the title deed for the 20, 400 hactares and instead replaced it with the name of the President of the United Republic of Tanzania.

The unexpected move dealt a major blow to the Swedish company that had for over 10 years worked to develop the project and invested $52 million in a ready-to-go project for local production of sugar, renewable electricity and fuel.

Attorney General and government’s chief legal adviser, George Masaju could not be reached by phone yesterday to react on the move. The project was tied under the bilateral investment protection between Tanzania and Sweden, which calls for disputes to be settled by international arbitration.

The revocation was followed by a series of unsuccessful attempts by the company to have dialogue with the government to save the project and pay compensation.

“Despite several invitations from EcoEnergy, GoT (Government of Tanzania) has ignored all offers to meet for a dialogue to save the project. Hence, EcoEnergy has no other option but to seek legal redress though an international arbitral tribunal,” states the document filed at ICSID. The company wrote to President John Magufuli on December 5, 2016 to request his intervention after failed efforts to have the Prime Minister, Kassim Majaliwa and minister for Industry, Trade and Investment Charles Mwijage to give a go-ahead and full support to enable the sugar project to start.

The consortium of EcoEnergy Africa AB of Sweden and Uttam Group of India was to inject $100 million towards the Bagamoyo project as own equity.

The remaining fund of $250 million would have been a combination of DFI and commercial bank lending where a commitment was given by African Development Bank (AfDB) to act as a lead financing arranger. They already had a board decision of the AfDB to allocate $100 million towards the project.

AfDB withdrew their financing commitment later due to inaction by the government to respond to their requests of endorsing the Bagamoyo project in combination with information that the government had revoked the land title with the intention of giving it to a domestic investor.

“We are concerned that you have not been fully informed about the actual situation and about our ability and interest to have the Bagamoyo Sugar Project up and running by 2019… Taking governments inaction and recent actions and their consequences into consideration we and our partners have now undesirably been forced to reassess the entire situation,” read part of the letter to President Magufuli.

The company has outlined several reasons why it opted for the international arbitration to resolve the dispute. “EcoEnergy has the right to be compensated for the financial harm suffered as the result of GoT’s acts and omissions violating the bilateral investment treaty.

“If the government is allowed to continue unchecked, its damaging actions towards private investors will lead to the loss of credibility for Tanzania as a destination for much needed direct investments into agriculture, as well as into other parts of the economy,” the company complains in the arbitration dossier.

The integrated sugar project that was to be carried out by the firm would have been one of the largest private agriculture investments in East Africa with an overall investment of about $500 million, including the outgrower programme.

The Bagamoyo project was estimated to create 20, 000 jobs in the processing facility, the estate, logistics, the outgrower programme and through indirect employment.

In 2013, the government of Tanzania issued a certificate of occupancy for 99 years for 20, 400 hactares free of encumbrance for the western portion of the abandoned Razaba ranch four years after an environment and social assessment certificate had been approved.

Then minister for Agriculture Livestock and Fisheries Mwigulu Nchemba sent a letter to Bagamoyo EcoEnergy on behalf of the government stating: “On behalf of the government of Tanzania and myself, we do appreciate your efforts in supporting the mentioned project. I think it is now time to make our outmost to bring the project to its successful implementation.” EcoEnergy now says: “The government’s act and omission, which have prevented the BEE project from being implemented, violate Tanzanian’s obligations under the bilateral investment treaty. The government has failed to ensure fair and equitable treatment, it has taken unreasonable and discriminatory measures against EcoEnergy,” read part of the document filed at ICSID.

Diamond Platnumz – Yes, I Cheated On Zari

Diamond Platnumz.

By Thomas Matiko

Bongo flava heartthrob Diamond Platnumz has finally admitted that he cheated on Zari Hassan with Hamisa Mobetto, the star of the sexy video of the hit song “Salome”. The affair culminated into a pregnancy, which Diamond previously vehemently denied responsibility for.

The admission will finally put to rest the rumours that have been flying around in showbiz circles for a long time now.

Fans will recall that Diamond once referred to the beauty Hamisa as an attention seeker when she first claimed that he was carrying his child. He even went further and asked her to come out and name the man responsible.

However, on September 19, Diamond ate his words. Speaking during a radio interview with popular Tanzanian show Leo Tena, he admitted to being the father of one-month-old Abdul Latif Naseeb Abdul Juma who was named after the musicians’ father Abdul Naseeb.

ZARI KNOWS

According to Diamond, who is also involved currently in another cheating scandal with 2013 Big Brother winner Dillish Mathews, Zari was aware the whole time of what happened between him and Mobetto while she was busy taking care of her businesses in South Africa. The crooner says he was able to explain to Zari what transpired between him and Mobetto and she was fully supportive of him. “Katika maisha hivi vitu vinatokea, lakini jambo muhimu ni namna gani mtu unadili na suala kama hilo kama mwanaume. Hakuna sababu ya kutengeneza vita isiyokuwa na sababu ili hata hapo baadae watoto wote waje kukua pamoja na kufurahi kama familia,” he said.

Later on in life, the children will grow up together and they will be happy as a family.”NOT A DEAD-BEAT DADIn the interview, Diamond also refuted claims that he wanted to be a dead-beat father by earlier own disowning the baby, accusing Mobetto of using the situation to destabilise his relationship with Zari. According to Diamond, he and the model had an agreement that he would provide for the child and in return Mobetto would remain silent on the issue so as not to hurt Zari but she decided to break the truce.He says he has done everything possible to ensure Mobetto and the baby are well taken care off including buying her a new car ( a Rav 4, just in case you were wondering) to ease her way around the town as well as paying an upkeep of TSh70,000 (Sh3,131) daily.His mother, Diamond says, was the first to visit the video vixen in hospital when she gave birth.”Nilifanya kila kitu ambacho mwanaume anapaswa kufanya, ikiwa ni pamoja na kumpatia Mobetto Shilingi elfu 70 kila siku na kumnunulia gari aina ya Rav 4 mpya kwa ajili ya kuendea kliniki na safari za mtoto za hapa na pale.””I did everything that a man is supposed to do, including giving her upkeep money and a Rav 4,” he added.More on ThisDiamond Platinumz Admits to Cheating and Fathering Model’s Child

Ommy Dimpoz Quizzed By Police Over Photo With Diamond Platnumz’s Mother?

By Josephine Mosongo

On Wednesday morning, Bongo Flava musician Ommy Dimpoz was spotted walking into a police station in Dar e Salaam accompanied by two other unidentified men. According to reports from Tanzanian website Millard Ayo, Dimpoz was seen at the police station at around 11 am where reporters had also gone for a press conference.

Dimpoz, was at the station for five hours, and walked out in the evening. According to the site’s sources, Dimpoz might have been questioned over a photo he had posted posing with Diamond Platnumz’s mother back in August. The photo caused quite a stir online since the Kajiandae musician had captioned the photo referring to himself as Diamond’s father, intimating that he had slept with Diamond’s mother.

Dimpoz however did not reveal why he went to the station stating that he was not allowed to disclose his reason for the five-hour visit.

Cecafa Needs Urgent Re-Organisation

editorial

SOMETHING must be done now to reactivate the Council for East and Central Africa Football Associations (CECAFA), which is nowhere in sight at the moment.

It was CECAFA that did a spadework in reuniting East Africa through sports and in later days brought more members from four when it was formed to over 14 members to-date.

However, it is as if the body has ceased to function. From its deathbed somewhere in Nairobi, Kenya, CECAFA watches in dismay other sports overtake it in cementing the East African Community and winning more members.

No one to blame for the inactivity of the once powerful football unifying organ, and as well blame game should not be an issue here, as it was very clear that lack of sponsorship, coupled with financial crisis of the major corporate firms might be the cause of the football body’s fall.

It is pity that CECAFA which turns 90 this year is being let to die and no efforts being done to rescue it. Since it is our own organ that served us well, EAC member states should take measures to build capacity to the organ and enable it function properly.

Principal among the solutions are that the governments should properly re-articulate its policy for sports, taking into consideration the fact that sports has become a serious global economic and business factor, while the governments should also, as a matter of imperative, develop new creative ways for the funding of sports.

We think the member states should involve businesses, communities, the public and individuals to contribute in tackling the critical inadequacy of funds. Let regional members wake up and keep the CECAFA ball rolling once again.

We think, collectively as East Africa Community, member states, we can find means to empower CECAFA to enable it run effectively in all tournaments at senior, junior and ladies levels.

We suggest as a way forward, the member states should use their competent business and management professionals and consultants to help CECAFA regain composure and make it operate to the desired capacity.

Herders Blamed for Tasking Children With Grazing Cattle

By Juma Mtanda Thecitizentz

Morogoro — Pastoralists have been blamed for delegating their responsibility to their children by telling them to graze large herds of cattle, which they fail to manage.

As a result, the cattle end up invading farmers’ fields in villages in Mvomero District, Morogoro Region. This has been aggravating conflicts between farmers and pastoralists.

This is what came out during a debate that brought together farmers and pastoralists at Dakawa Village.

It was argued that the children’s inability to handle huge herds of cattle aggravated land conflicts that led to frequent clashes.

The debate aimed at maintaining peace and finding solutions to land disputes.

It was organised by Tanzania Initiate for Social Economic Relief (Tiser) through a project on good land management by involving stakeholders in good policy formulation.

A farmer, Ms Fahamia Ally, said children aged between five and 10 were the ones looking after the herds of cattle. She added that, it was impossible for the them to manage the cattle on their own, particularly in areas close to farms.

“The time has come for pastoralists to change. They are supposed to take their children to school, instead of grazing cattle, which is supposed to be the responsibility of adults,” said Ms Fahamia.

For his part, Dakawa Village Executive Officer Andrew Mohamed, said the big challenge facing village leaders was lack of a programme on good land management.

Tiser has been collecting public views with a view to maintaining peace and resolving land conflicts between the farmers and pastoralists in Mvomero District through the project.
