    Inheriting property by non Tanzanian

    [TD="bgcolor: transparent"] In our column of few months ago, we had addressed the issue of whether a non Tanzanian citizen, who was the beneficiary under a Will, could inherit a property as per the wishes of the testator (Will maker). The issue encompassed the land act as we understood it at the time and we answered the question in the negative in that it was not legal for the property to be transferred to a non Tanzanian because the Land Act prohibited non Tanzanians from owning land. We wish to further expand on this question based on a landmark judgment delivered at the High Court of Tanzania, District Registry by Dr Fauz Twaib, J, on May 13th 2011.[/TD]
