The lack of registration of the entity running Mulbadaw Farm and Central Maintenance and Service Centre after 12th August 2006; how can a foreign foundation own and run businesses in Tanzania without being registered in Tanzania?

Mulbadaw ownership


Earlier posts on this web- site

In May 2010 on this web site we published a draft to an agreement between HLH and FoH concerning ownership of the Mulbadaw Farm, CMSC and Water Line System. According to the draft, the mentioned properties shall be transferred from HLH to a new company called “HLH Farm and Development Company Ltd.” (HLHFD) The only purpose of HLHFD  is supposed to be owning the properties. Another new company called “Haydom Farm and Development Company Ltd. (HFD)” is supposed to run the properties. Both new companies will according to the draft be controlled by the Norwegians in FoH.    

In August 2011on this website we asked the following questions:

  1. When did HLH (owned by the Diocese of Mbulu) sell the Mulbadaw farm and the Central Maintenance Service Center to HLH Farm and Development Ltd (HLHFD)?
  2. How was this sale dealt with by the Diocese and in what organs? What was the price?
  3. The constitution of HLHDF, who are the board members of HLHFD, and who has the real power in the board (Norwegians or Tanzanians)?
  4. Who owns the shares in HLHFD?
  5. If the real power of HLHFD is in the hands of Norwegians, how does this comply with Tanzanian law demanding Tanzanian control over Tanzanian land?

Who really owns and controls the Mulbadaw farm today? 

 In his press release from September 2006 at the time HLH Managing Medical Director , Øystein E. Olsen, made it crystal clear according to his opinion, the properties were bought by HLH. In the CMI report from 2007 is written on page v (5) in the Summary: "HLH possesses various assets that can potentially generate income for the hospital, e.g. the Mulbadaw Farm ...". The CMI report from 2009 says very little about the Mulbadaw farm and nothing specific about ownership. Based on the few lines written about the farm on page 26 and 43 in the report of 2009, it is natural to conclude that HLH still owns and controls the farm.

HDC hasn’t received any information that confirms ETLCT, Mbulu Diocese as the owner of HLH has sold the Mulbadaw farm etc. to FOH or any other buyer. On the Norwegian home page of the Mulbadaw farm are both HFD and FoH mentioned at the bottom of each webpage (as responsible owners?).However, the last unconfirmed information HDC has received is that Olaf Myklatun in FoH’s farm group now owns 80% of the farm (through HFD?). 

On HLH’s website the Mulbadaw farm is not mentioned with a word. On FoH’s  Norwegian website are just some general information about the Mulbadaw farm (which otherwise HDC don’t  agree about concenrning some aspects), but no information about who is the legal owner of the farm.

Can the Norwgians in FoH legally own the Mulbadaw farm?

However, an important information on FoH's webpage is the following written statement (in English translation): "... it is this foundation that bears the financial responsibility in connection with the acquisition and operation of the farm and its activities". The foundation is of course FoH. According to the legal information HDC has received a farm like Mulbadaw must be owned and controlled by a Tanzanian company under Tanzanian control. It’s obvious that the Mulbadaw farm is controlled by the Norwegians in FoH. HDC has good reason to believe that FoH now also in reality controls the ownership of the farm. Are there any other reasons that can explain the nondisclosure about the ownership?  

No financial overview 

Is it possible to find a financial overview about the Mulbaw-farm that shows specific annual expenditure, income and contribution to HLH for the period 2006 to 2012?

From the CMI report in 2007 HLH (p. 14), we know that Mulbadaw-farm in the first year after HDC were displaced had a loss of 327.5 mill TSH. After that it has been impossible to find neither any accounts about the Mulbadaw farm, nor any recordings about economical support to HLH from the fam. For example, the Mulbadaw  farm isn’t mentioned among many other partners in the last annual report (2011) from HLH available on FoH’s website.

HDC will be thankful for any information that can enlighten any questions raised on this webpage:  post@haydom-dc.com
