Title:Human rights in Tanzania: a constitutional overview
Author:Ong'wamuhana, Kibuta
Periodical:Eastern Africa Law Review
Geographic term:Tanzania
Subject:human rights
Abstract:Tanzania is a signatory to the UN Declaration of Human Rights and is also one of the countries which has already signed the African Convention on Human and People's Rights. This discussion of human rights with regard to Tanzania treats human rights as an aspect of the Rule of Law principle within the general concept of democracy. The author points out the inadequacies which are patent in the constitution and other laws in so far as protection and recognition of the Rule of Law and Human Rights are concerned. A cross section of cases of violations of Human Rights of one sort or another indicates that the government practice in Tanzania is not entirely compatible with the avowed stand and commitment to Human Rights of the State. - Notes.
