It is now over 23 years since establishment of the Legal and Human Rights Centre (LHRC) and its subsequent engagement in the civic awareness creation on human rights and campaign for peoples centered constitution in Tanzania. The beginning of the Constitution Review Process in 2011 was upheld with jubilation and anticipation of a step ahead in realization of a JUST and EQUITABLE society in Tanzania until when its stalemate was onset owing number of reasons put forward in this report. In pursuing its programmatic activities geared towards realization of people’s centred process and constitution, LHRC has continuously engaged and hosted constitution experts from different professional fields with the objective of analyzing, documenting and archiving technical information related to the Constitution Review Process in Tanzania. The professional guidance form basis of most LHRC’s constitutional reform advocacy programs which aims at raising people’s awareness on constitutional issues including the ongoing constitution review process to ensure effective citizenry participation in the process. With the specific aim of addressing the stalemate of the constitution review process, LHRC commissioned the analysis and writing of this report to independent constitution experts from the University of Dar Es salaam whom we appreciate their immeasurable efforts to the reality of this report. I hope this report will enlighten all readers especially constitution review process stakeholders and contribute to inform their advocacy strategies and the government decisions towards the continuation of the citizenry centered constitution review process considering its significance.
