Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa has suspended three senior officials of Tanzania Building Agency (TBA), over claims that they were incompetent and has called into question the conduct of its executive director, Architect Daudi Kondoro, TPJ has learnt.

 Mr. Majaliwa’s decision came after he inspected construction of the National Electoral Commission (NEC) building at Njedengwa area in the capital amid reports of widespread disquiet in the country over the agency’s performance in various projects in recent times.     

 “TBA should not be given any more projects to implement because it is not performing and its officials think because it is a public institution it will be left alone,” he said.

 A statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office mentioned the suspended officials as Acting Director Building Department, Arch. Humphrey Killo, Acting Project Manager, Abdallah Awadh and Acting Director for Consultancy, Arch. Hamis Kileo.

 According to the statement, the prime minister took was displeased to discover that the NEC building project, which started in July, 2017 and was due for completion in June 2018 at a cost of TZS 13 billion,  was yet to be completed and had stalled.

 Apparently, the Prime Minister came to discover during the site visit, the delay  according to Arch. Killo, was due to the fact that some issues had been overlooked during preparation of the bill of quantities (BOQ).

 “TZS 13 billion was the agreed sum in the contract, however, as the project got underway, we discovered that some issues were overlooked in the BOQ and these increased the budget to TZS 32 billion,” he said, which prompted the premier to cast doubt on the validity of the huge increase and to question whether it was accepted by the project owners.   

The premier expressed concerns that many projects implemented by TBA in various parts of the country have not been completed in time and went on to direct the Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office -Policy, Parliament, Labour, Youth, Employment and the Disabled, Jenista Mhagama, to terminate the contract and to find another contractor for remainder of the works.
