Tanzania’s Ambassador to the United States
Ms. Mwanaidi Sinare Maajar describes herself on the Internet, in the following terms (http://rex.irdis.net/index.php/about-us-2/the_partners/h-e-mrs-mwanaidi-sinare-maajar/) :-
The pertinent points of the above are that Ms Maajar is a lawyer who holds herself out as adhering to high standard of ethics in terms of regulatory legal frameworks.
"....the investors were bona fide and had been registered by the Tanzania Investment Centre. They have the full support of his ministry they (Benjamin Mengi) are using local organs to harass legal investors. This is open corruption, which I strongly condemn. It shames us as a nation, which has set out to attract foreign investors."
- The permission for the assignment of the lease from the co-societies was not obtain by the investors.
- Mr Middleton forged the lease to Silverdale and Mbono Farms
- Unlawfully removed Benjamin Mengi as a director of Silverdale Farm
- Did not pay Benjamin Mengi monies due to him for the assignment of the lease.
- Did not exercise due diligence in the transaction with Benjamin Mengi
- Stated that the Chief justice of Tanzania had agreed to review cases in the courts in Tanzania brought against the investors by Benjamin Mengi and the investors had refused a meeting with the chief justice and fled the country
- The investors fled the country due to a court judgment against them
- The investors were not proper investors in the country of Tanzania.
- Finally, and not having ever met the investors Ms Majaar appeared on BBC television and stated the investors had never been mistreated in Tanzania and left the country for their own reasons despite, a Foreign and Commonwealth office statement put to her that they had ‘credible evidence of abuse and intimidation of the investors’.
Ms Maajar has lied, cheated and deliberately misrepresented the facts of the Silverdale Farm case to all those with a genuine interest in investing in Tanzania and continues to do so. Most recently she has led an investment delegation from the United States seeking to secure investment in Tanzania.
Ms Maajar has hidden behind her diplomatic immunity to defame innocent investors and has been instigational in the abuse of law against British subjects which has led to the loss of their entire investment in Tanzania.
Ms Maajar’s conduct as a representative of her government is damming enough but as a lawyer, it is here suggested, is worthy of being stuck off, the practising register!!!!
