Court Orders Tanzania to Allow Challenges to Presidential Results

The African Rights Court has ordered Tanzania to amend a section of its constitution which bars any court from probing the election of a president after a winner is officially announced. Jebra Kambole filed a case at the Arusha-based court in 2018 arguing the provision was a violation of his rights. Tanzania's constitution states that once a presidential candidate has been declared the winner by the electoral commission "no court of law shall have any jurisdiction to inquire into the election of that candidate."
