Visitors to Butiama: Chief Justice Augustino Ramadhani

Tanzania's Chief Justice, the Hon. Augustino Ramadhani, second from left, listens to guide Jacob Thomas (third from left) of the Mwalimu Julius K. Nyerere Museum at Butiama during a visit last year.

In a recent Tanzania Court of Appeals ruling, the Chief Justice stated that the mere fact that the government was appealing against a case that ruled that the barring of private candidates in Tanzania's electoral system is unconstitutional should not bar private candidates from contesting in Tanzania's elections. The government's appeal is against a case that was filed by Chairman of the Democratic Party, Rev. Christopher Mtikila.

Someone told me: "The Chief Justice is not a politician. Otherwise he would have held public meetings to encourage individuals who are interested in politics to declare themselves private candidates in the next elections."
