The first study covered the ninth Parliament (2005-2010) and the present study covers the tenth Parliament (2010-2015). The present study employed the six criteria endorsed by the SADC Parliamentary Forum’s Benchmarks for Democratic Legislatures in Southern Africa (2012). The six criteria are as follows: (i) Separation of Powers (ii) Accessibility of Parliament (iii) Ethical Governance (iv) Representativeness of Parliament (v) Transparency and Accountability; and (vi) Tolerance and Respect of Opinion during Debating.

Huenda huna muda wa kutosha wala kipato cha kutosha kulinda utu na haki za wengine, ingawa unawiwa kufanya hivyo.
Ni jukumu letu sote kujitoa kwa kidogo tulichojaaliwa ili kupaka rangi ya furaha katika nyuso za wengine, wewe, yule na sisi tukikusanya nguvu tunaweza kutetea na kulinda haki za wanaoonewa kwa kushindwa kuzifikia huduma za haki.
