4Rs boosts public legal awareness – Dr Chana

TANZANIA: THE government has played a significant role in ensuring mutual legal understanding among the public and strengthening cooperation with other countries, Constitution and Legal Affairs, Dr Pindi Chana said on Tuesday.

According to Dr Chana, these achievements reflect the efforts made by President Samia Suluhu Hassan in transforming the country through the 4Rs philosophy.

The minister also emphasised the nation’s progress in mutual legal matters and cooperation with Russia. Dr Chana highlighted these points during a public lecture at the Law School of Tanzania, featuring esteemed speakers from the Russian Federation’s prosecutor general’s office.

She noted the substantial progress made under President Samia’s three-year tenure, particularly in the areas of the rule of law, governance, and justice administration.

“Three years of strong leadership under President Samia have seen significant improvements in the rule of law, good governance, and the administration of justice,” she said.

She also emphasised the historical diplomatic ties between the two nations, advocating for continued reform and innovative collaboration. Recalling her visit to Russia last December, Dr Chana mentioned the fruitful discussions with Russian legal dignitaries, setting the stage for cooperative ventures between ministries and institutions.

Moreover, Minister Chana stated that the event should serve as a platform for building lasting partnerships and reinforcing commitments to justice and the rule of law between the two nations.

“Together, through shared knowledge and mutual support, we can forge a future where justice is upheld universally across our countries,” she said.

Looking ahead, Dr Chana anticipates dynamic dialogues with students on collaborative opportunities spanning joint training, cybersecurity, adaptable legal frameworks for emerging technologies, and cultural exchanges.

“These discussions are vital for crafting adequate responses to the legal challenges of today and tomorrow,” she stressed.

He stated that these matters require closer bilateral cooperation and widening interaction between agencies to enhance work on protecting citizens’ rights and preventing crimes.
