The government has launched a countrywide ‘Be Proud, Buy Tanzanian’ campaign to promote and market locally-made products to reduce trade gaps with imported products. She elaborated that the initiative is in line with the government’s plans to transform the country into an industrial-powered economy. "All local producers should register their products with Tanzania bar-code 620.

(Note: This is in contradiction with the last TRA directions to buy products from shops like Nakomat instead of local shops since Nakomat is VAT registered. Nakomat is a Kenyan company.)

The court ruled as unconstitutional sections 13 and 17 of the Tanzania Law of Marriage Act, which allowed girls to marry at age 15 with parental permission and at age 14 with the permission of a court.

By Jakaya Kikwete: When it comes to education,  if successful, the establishment of a well-functioning education system can change a country’s face – and redefine its fate. That is what happened in my country, Tanzania. From 2000 to 2009, primary-school enrolment rates in Tanzania more than doubled, from just over four million pupils to 8.5 million, or 96% of all primary-school-age children. In other words, at the primary level, Tanzania now boasts near-full enrolment. (Note: It looks like mister Kikwete is trying here to clean his street since education never went that bad like during his presidency where the schools where left with ghost teachers and a few real, unmotivated ones, a shortage of desks, books and rooms and terrible results which is now cleaned up by our present president Magufuli)

Tanzanian authorities have said they were pulling out of the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with the European Union (EU) bloc. It had no benefits to Tanzania as it favoured Kenya with its flowers and vegetables exports to EU countries duty free. EPA won’t help in promoting our local industries but rather, will benefit a lot given that developing countries have standard goods to sell in EA markets
