Critiques on Constitution-Making in Tanzania

As we debate the process of coming up with a new constitution of Tanzania and President Jakaya Mrisho's decision to constitute a Constitutional Review Commission let us refer to these key texts from our human rights and constitutional lawyers:

Constitutional-making in Tanzania by Chris Main Peter

Problems of Constitution-Making As Consensus-Building: The Tanzanian Experience by Issa Shivji
http://www.mekonginfo.org/mrc/html/oss/sh22_b.htm

We may also find it useful to consult these chapters in Shivji's Let the People Speak: Tanzania Down the Road to Neo-Liberalism and Where is Uhuru? Reflections on the Struggle for Democracy in Africa respectively:

We, the People

The Pitfalls of Constitution-Making

Constitution-Making by the People: The National Conference

Constitution-Making by the People: The Constituent Assembly

Constitution-Making by the People: The Referendum

Serious Gaps in Msekwa's History of Constitution-Making

kutokana na matatizo ya kupata pasi ya kusafiria kwenda nje ya nchi pamoja na mfumo mzima wa kupta pasi hizi. hivyo basi kwa katiba hiyo lazima iweke wazi ya kwamba pasi ya kusafiria ni haki ya kila mzalendo na itolewe haraka kama iwapasovyo wanafunzi kuwa na vitambulisho cha shule au wafanyakazi kuwa na vya makazini kwao.(passport ni haki ya kila mzalendo jamani, nchi nyingine mbona hawana mambo ya namna hiyo. watanzania tubadilike tuige yaliyo mazuri sasa)

katiba mpya iweke bayana pasi za kusafiria ni haki ya mzalendo na zitolewe kama vitambulisho vya taifa.
