Tanzania firm translates law texts to promote rights
A Dar es Salaam law firm has translated a range of legal texts into English and Kiswahili in order to help Tanzanians understand their legal rights.
Numerous languages are spoken in the country. Paul Kalomo of the Mega Attorneys Company which published the translations said: ‘As a matter of fact many Tanzanians have been losing their rights, basically because they lack insights in law….A larger section of our clients are small entrepreneurs and they are often complaining of losing their properties …mainly through confiscation by lenders after failing to repay back loans. We are thus gearing to harmonise the situation by equipping them with legal knowledge before entering into any loan contract.’ Source: IPP Media
