1.8.1       Grand Corruption Discovery

As a result of Emmanuel Chacha’s exposé on grand corruption at Nyanza Cooperative Union (NCU) members demanded that legal action be taken against Jacob Shibiriti, the former MP for Misungwi and chairman of NCU as well as other NCU top officials. President Kikwete requested a report from NCU. The entire NCU top leadership was fired, and the union hired a new manager who is trying to ensure that the Union is running profitably. The article won one of the MCT 2011 Awards.
