Edward Lowassa's Biography

Edward Ngoyai Lowassa (born 1953) is a former Prime Minister of Tanzania, serving under President Jakaya Kikwete. He took office on 30 December 2005 and resigned on 7 February 2008 following a parliamentary select committee report on an emergency power generation contract between the Tanzania Electrict Supply Company Ltd (TANESCO), a public corporation, and a US company styled Richmond Development Company LLC of Houston, Texas. The five-member select committee, headed by a radical Kyela MP, Dr. Harrison Mwakyembe, considered the contract to have been fraudly concluded, hence unconscionable and blamed the Ministry of Energy and Minerals and the Prime Minister's Office for faul play.
