Abstract

This article sets out to evaluate the constitutionality of the provisions of the Electronic and Postal Communications Act 2010 (EPOCA) regulating the registration of SIM cards in Tanzania. Particular focus is cast on the legal implications this law has over the constitutional right to privacy. It is the author's argument that the Act, being broadly and loosely framed, has legalised the secret interception of our private communications by the state rather than achieving its principal aims. For such reason, EPOCA contravenes the constitutional right to privacy.
