Abstract:Examines what the changes of reforms in the penological methods in Tanzania have achieved. After discussing the general objectives of correctional institutions the author shows why innovations are taking place in Tanzania and what improvements may be made to these new experiments so that their objectives may be fully realised. He explains the purpose of current East African Criminal Law, its foundation, its objectives, focussing on the Minimum Sentences Act 1963 of which he gives an appraisal. Then he deals with the Resettlement of Offenders Act, 1969, which he places in its social context. He concludes with some critique and a discussion of the role of prison systems in a developing country. Notes.
