    East African Court of Justice, Arusha, 24 January 2012:
    The EACJ will decide 15 March 2012 whether the permanent injunction its lower division handed the Tanzanian Government and effectively blocked the latter's attempt to construct a highway through the Serengeti National Park should stand.


    The Appellate Division of the EACJ set the date after it heard an Appeal today by the Attorney General of the United Republic of Tanzania disputing the permanent injunction the First Instance Division of the regional court handed the Government last year.

    Appearing before Justices Harold Nsekela, President, Emilie Kayitesi and James Ogoola, Principal State Attorney Mr. Gabriel Malata had asked the EACJ Appellate Division to strike out the ruling of the First Instance Division, arguing that while the lower division of the Court had jurisdiction to hear the matter under Article 27 of the EAC Treaty, it did not have powers to order a permanent injunction against the Government of Tanzania.


    The permanent injunction followed a suit by the Africa Network for Animal Welfare (ANAW) contestingTanzania's intention to build a "super highway" crossing the Serengeti, with the Kenyan organization arguing it would be hazardous to animals.


    Mr. Saitabao Kanchory Mbalelo, counsel representing the respondent (ANAW), however insisted that the First Instance Division had jurisdiction in the matter and powers to grant any other orders sought, including permanent injunctions.


    He added that permanent injunctions are equitable remedies which are available to the EACJ as they are in the national courts, and concluded by asking the Court to dismiss the Appeal.

    ..serikali imeshaamua kwamba barabara haitakatiza mbuga ya Serengeti.

    ..hata reli toka bandari ya Tanga kwenda Musoma nayo haitakatiza Serengeti, that is according to Minister Omari Nundu.
