Tanzanian president, John Magufuli on Wednesday 6th of February, 2019 launched a mobile court estimated over Sh470million that will operate in Dar es Salaam and Mwaza regions.
The inauguration took place at Julius Nyere International Conference (JNICC) in Dar es Salaam during the summit of the Law Day 2019.
The Law Day marks the beginning of this year’s judicial activities whose central theme is: “Timely delivery of justice: the judiciary and stake holders’ responsibility”.
A senior judiciary officer told president Magufuli during the inauguration that the mobile court will be used to receive and preside over several cases at the primary level, stating that 177,614 cases were filed at primary court all over the country last year. The number was equivalent to 68 percent.
According to her, the mobile court will be used to carry out operations against illegal fishing and delivery education to the public.
She said “the court that is equipped with modern equipment will start operations in Dar es Salaam and Mwanza, which have many cases due to rapid economic development and an inadequate number of primary courts”.
“In Dar es Salaam, services will be delivered at Bunju, Chanika, Kimamba and Buza centers while Buswelu, Buhongwa and Igoma are the centers that will be used in Mwanza,” She added.
