Tanzania addresses faults raised by African governance initiative 

DAR ES SALAAM, (Xinhua) -- Tanzanian authorities said on Wednesday they have started addressing shortcomings raised by the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), the continent’s self-monitoring mechanism.

The mandate of the APRM is to encourage conformity in regard to political, economic and corporate governance values, codes and standards, among African countries.

Launching APRM’s country review report for Tanzania, the east African country’s Vice-President, Samia Hassan Suluhu, said the APRM initiative was relevant to the country given its massive potential in deepening democracy and citizen participation.

“For ARPM, as an instrument for the transformation of the African governance architecture has renewed hope and enthusiasm for our people,” said Suluhu.

Tanzania acceded to the APRM process on May 26, 2004, providing the country with a platform where the government and its people could sit together as one in determining their country’s destiny collectively.

In implementing the ARPM, she said Tanzania has started strengthening institutions charged with good governance, democracy, reducing poverty, the industrialization drive and delivery of social services in the education, health and water.

She said one of the focus areas in the country’s industrialization drive was reinforcement of the power and energy sector.

Suluhu said the government has continued with its zero tolerance policy on corruption by taking relevant measures, including strengthening institutions responsible for corruption oversight and raising awareness campaigns on corruption and money laundering.

Suluhu said through the APRM initiative, Africa has shown the world that it can dictate its own course of development and address poverty afflicting its citizens.

“Through this mechanism we have been able to showcase to the world our collective strength in improving democracy, peace and stability, rule of law and good governance in general,” said Suluhu.
