Tanzania Business Association Urges Creation of Corruption Courts

The Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) has recommended the state establish a court dedicated to trying corruption cases, Tanzania's The Guardian reported Monday (February 18th).

The current system of trying corruption cases causes delays and disrupts business, said TPSF executive director Godfrey Simbeye at a conference for TPSF members in Dar es Salaam at the weekend. He suggested Tanzania follow the example of Uganda and Kenya, which have dedicated corruption courts.

Other recommendations include revising the tax code for businesses and the re-introduction of mandatory National Service stints for youth to improve their ethical conduct.
