This edition takes into account more than 150 decisions of the High Court and the Court of Appeal of Tanzania. It covers a wide range of criminal law subjects ranging from the traditional offences like murder and theft to more recent additions like corruption. Cases which had not been decided at the time of publishing the first edition in 1994 and others which had been omitted have been included to widen the reader's scope and neglect development in judicial thinking. Although the majority of the decisions in this edition are digested as criminal practice and procedure, readers will be pleased to note that most of those decisions are rich in a variety of substantive criminal law in a wide range of areas as outlined in the synopsis. Those looking for a quick and comprehensive reference in criminal law will no doubt find this digest most useful.
