The Coalition for Right to Information (CORI) met on October 22, 2014 to chart out way forward to push for the enactment of the RTI legislation.

The Coalition was meeting for the first time after the Constituent Assembly finalized drafting of the proposed constitution in Dodoma and presented copies of the document to President of the United Republic of Tanzania, Dr. Jakaya kikwete and Zanzibar President Dr. Ali Mohamed Shein on October 8, 2014.

The Regulation and Standards Manager of the Media Council, Pili Mtambalike, who chaired the meeting on behalf of the Executive Secretary of the Council, Kajubi Mukajanga said members of the coalition have every reason to celebrate as two very important articles on Right to Information and freedom of expression and press freedom were accommodated in the proposed constitution.

CORI members had lobbied members of the CA to ensure the two articles which were in the second draft of constitution prepared by the Warioba Commission were retained in the final document.

CORI members also discussed other developments on the enactment of RTI which included a pledge by President Kikwete at an international meeting in the US in September, 2014 that the law will be in place by January next year.

They poised themselves to make close follow-ups in the corridors of power – relevant government ministry- to monitor the progress of the process of enacting the RTI legislation.

CORI members who attended the meeting included Deus Kibamba from the Tanzania Citizens’ Information Bureau, Henry Muhanika from Media Owners Association (MOAT), James Marenga from National Organisation for Legal Assistance (nola), Godfrey Mpandikizi from Legal and Human Rights Centre (LHRC), G. Gasirigwa from the Media Institute of Sothern Africa – Tanzania chapter ( MISA-Tan), Deudedit Simbakalia from Tanganyika Law Society (TLS) and Victoria Dowan from Tanzania Media Women Association (Tamwa).
