Judiciary goes e-electronic case management November

TANZANIA: The Judiciary of Tanzania is set to start using the new Electronic Case Management System from November 1, 2023.

Registrar of the Court of Appeal, Sylvester Kainda made the announcement today, on behalf of the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary of Tanzania, Mr Wilbert Chuma adding that all trials of the system will be completed at the end of this month.

Elaborating, Mr Kainda said that the launching of the new system is part of the improvements made by the Court of Tanzania in various areas that aim to improve access to justice services on time and at low cost to citizens.

“One of those improvements is to use various ICT systems in the running of judiciary activities including the Consultation Management System known as JSDS2…this system replaces the JSDS2 system that has been in use since 2018,” Mr Kaida said.

Other benefits that the system will bring is the facilitation of case registration through the internet, planning of hearings for judges and magistrates, reducing the costs of hearing proceedings both on the courts side and citizens, reducing the time used in listening to proceedings as well as and bringing judicial services closer to citizens.

Likewise, Mr Kainda noted that the new system has been designed in a modern way such that it is compatible with the current needs of the Court, adding that they are interconnected with other internal systems of the Court and those of important stakeholders such as the National Prosecution Services (NPS), the National Identification Authority (NIDA), Registration Insolvency and Trusteeship Agency (RITA), and other institutions.
