The methods of Friends of Haydom
July 10th 2010)
Norwegian Foundation Friends of Haydom (FoH) has documented their
ambitions to own and control the Mulbadaw farm from Norway in their own documents published in this web page.
See documentation about how the Norwegians want to take control of the
farm here and documentation about the
have demonstrated their will to use force and threaten with violence. The
illegal occupation of the Mulbadaw farm and CMSC on the 12th of
August 2006 by militia armed with batons by order of FoH leaves no doubt
of what they are willing to do. It is depressing to get new information
that demonstrates that this will to use force is still present. Read
more here about the threats put forward by the
Managing Director of Haydom Farm and Development, Toralf Rugland, in the
Mulbadaw morning prayers on July the 7th this year.
this background we think it’s appropriate to take a further look at
other FoH methods.
invitation made by FoH
The Managing Director of Haydom Farm and Development and Friends of Haydom FoH in Norway have recently invited leading members of ELCT Mbulu Diocese to come to Norway in August this year, everything most probably paid by donations to Friends of Haydom.
the timing of such a generous invitation in anyway be linked to Friends of
Haydoms efforts in persuading ELCT Diocese of Mbulu to accept foreign
control and ownership of Haydom Hospital, Mulbadaw Farm and CMSC?
% of the shares of “Haydom Farm and Development Ltd” are to be owned
by Friends of Haydom in Norway. By
July 6th this year such a company did not appear in the
Register of companies in Tanzania (BRELA).
today in the files of the Norwegian registrator of companies (Brønnøysundregisterne)
shows it's not registered in Norway either.
of ownership are better discussed in Mbulu, providing transparency and
local participation in the process, and not in Norway,

is due time to put attention to what already is present in written
language on this web-site under the headline “Need
of knowing the truth”:
was advised already in August 2006 to bring this case to court; also by
officials representing regional government authorities in Manyara; stating
that the conflict was a matter for the court and not for the political and
administrative authorities to deal with.
has also been advised to bring this case to the attention of the
institutions in Tanzania and in Norway investigating corruption and
misconduct. HDC has heeded the
Foundation Friends of Haydom in Norway (FoH) has not wanted to permit the
Tanzanian High Court consider the case.
Instead, FoH has made use of the legacy of HLH and the late Dr
O.H.E. Olsen and his wife “Mama Kari” to mobilize high level political
support in Tanzania and in Norway in a way that seems to be in serious
conflict with the policy of “Good Governance” that Norway is demanding
from Tanzania as a condition for aid.
is also information from more than one source indicating that large amount
of cash has changed hands with an intention
of avoiding the case to be considered by the court.”
It’s important to underline that HDC Ltd has no hard
evidence to prove that bribing and corruption have taken place in
connection with the law suit, but various information have clearly raised
We are aware of accusations that named persons of HDC
Ltd, ELCT Diocese of Mbulu and Tanzanian Government officials should have
an agenda of wanting to destroy Haydom Lutheran Hospital. Such false
accusations are circulating in various e-mails in Norway, written in
Norwegian. All the named
persons and the organizations they work with have a record of supporting
and/or working for the Haydom Lutheran Hospital. They are all committed to
do so also in the future, if they are given the necessary conditions and
opportunities to do so.
HDC Ltd. believes that the same or similar lies and
accusations are being spread amongst members of the ELCT Mbulu also. In an
e- mail of June 23rd this year, also addressed directly to leading members
of ELCT Mbulu diocese, “Mama Kari” (Olsen) wrote:
am really sad for the way you all are spreading false allegations about my
family and by your current actions. Even though we as a family are deeply
hurt by this, by your actions the people who really will suffer are the
poor people in need of assistance in Haydom and the surrounding districts.”
Instead of getting involved in an e- mail campaign of
“confidential nature”, HDC wants transparency. Therefore we publish
what we have to say on this web-site that is available to everybody, who
can connect to the internet.
