Analyse: The "Future generator" is projecting that media sentiment towards Tanzania will continue to be positive over the next week. The green spot furthest to the right on the graph (above) is the starting point of the signal. We predict that the line will continue to slightly project upwards, which indicates positive media coverage. Considering the strong correlation between media sentiment and political events, EE draws the conclusion that the Tanzanian political environment will continue to improve until at least September 12.

Justice: Thirty-four judicial officers, including magistrates from different levels have been sacked for misconduct. The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) is also considering the fate of about 28 to 34 other magistrates who were acquitted of corruption cases. Among reasons behind the disciplinary measures taken against the officers include using court seals for personal benefit against the law and procedure, helping individuals to open cases in two different courts, which amounts to abuse of court process and judicial mischief.

Human rights: Tanzania has threatened to ban non-governmental groups that "promote" the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people in the first public statement the government has made against the minority group. Gay sex is illegal in Tanzania and punishable by up to 30 years in prison. The East African country has a reputation for being more tolerant towards LGBTI people than its neighbour Uganda but recent comments attacking the group have sparked fears and condemnation from activists.
