    The US Department of State produces yearly human rights reports for each country, especially those that receive aid from US tax payers. The Tanzania human rights report on Tanzania, inter alia, states that "there is a number of continuing human rights problems. Police and prison guards used excessive force against inmates and suspects, at times resulting in death, and police impunity was a problem; prison conditions were harsh and life threatening; there was widespread police corruption and violation of legal procedures; the judiciary suffered from corruption and inefficiency in the lower courts; freedom of speech and press were partly limited; governmental corruption remained a problem; authorities restricted the movement of refugees; societal violence against women persisted; and trafficking in persons and child labor were problems".

    As we approach the 2010 general elections, these are things that we all need to address to build a better Tanzania for ourselves, our children and children childrens. The 2009 report is attached herein.

    Sidhani kama watarudia tena. Wanachofanya sasa ni kuingia humu na kuvuruga ama kusahihisha kwa kujibu hoja kwa hoja. Tunawapongeza na kuwakaribisha kwa kujibu hoja kwa hoja, lakini 'WASHINDWE NA WALEGEE' wanaoingia kwa nia ya kuvuruga.

    Well its rather pathetic for US doing this while in there own country there is widespread violation of human rights.

    For the independence of judiciary to be guaranteed the govt has to stop interfering with this organ.The existence of god-fathers in the judiciary as well poor remuneration.The lower hierachy of the judiciary does the huge work while its the upper hierachy that gets the lion share thus corruption will still remain a problem unless the govt takes stern measures to address this problem.

    I think the issue of police using excessive force with the inmates is yet to be addressed with the introduction of a new department at the faculty of Law at the UDSM that deals specifically with law enforcement organs as professional law enforcers.

    I agree with the issue of restriction of refugees otherwise whats happening in kenya in Samburu and Turkana lands will also happen here.

    All in all capital is a problem and the govt needs to to the needful!
