lobbying or advocating for such issues; does not include: Chapter 212(a) a corporation incorporated and constituted under the Corporations Act, Chapter 318(b) a trust incorporated and registered under the Trustees Incorporation Act; Cap. 366 (c) a trade union established and registered under the Employment and Industrial Relations Act; (d) a religious organization or religious dissemination organization; 211 (e) a cooperative incorporated and registered under the Cooperatives Act; (f) an agricultural association constituted and registered in accordance with a written Act other than this Act; Cap. 337 (g) a company incorporated and registered under the Companies Act; Cap. 258 (h) a political party established and registered in accordance with the Political Parties Act; Law No. 10 of 2018 (i) a microfinance group (VICOBA) registered under the Microfinance Law; Cap. 49 (j) a sports federation established and registered under the Tanzania National Sports Council Act; and (k) any organization that the Minister may, by regulation published in the Official Gazette, declare non-governmental within the meaning of this Act; Article 32 is amended by deleting paragraph 1 and a new subsection is inserted instead. The aim of this amendment is to clarify the overlap of functional competences between the commercial register and the NGO register. The proposed amendments are intended to maintain the application of the respective laws with the changes observed to date. Part V proposes an amendment to the non-governmental organization, chapter 56. Among other things, the amendments redefine the term “non-governmental organization (NGO)” in order to clearly identify in the definition the essential elements that distinguish an NGO from other entities registered under other written laws.

In addition, the definition clearly specifies entities that are not NGOs. The amendment to article 4 seeks to expand the tasks and duties of the NGO registrar, including the possibility of suspending the activities of the NGO that violates the provisions of the law. The NGO Registrar is also empowered to evaluate the activities of an NGO. The addition of new section 4A is intended to provide the Registrar with the authority to conduct investigations under that Act. Section 11 is amended by striking out subsections (3), (4), (5) and (6). The reasons for such a change are to limit the requirement of compliance with applicable law, according to which an organization registered or established under another written law could file a request for compliance with the law. The Tanzanian government is considering legislative changes in the country to prevent human rights defenders and organisations from prosecuting on behalf or on behalf of victims of human rights violations, Amnesty International has learned. The amendment to Article 24A aims to introduce procedures for the dissemination of statistics different from those published by the Government.

In addition, the section outlines the procedures for a person who is not satisfied with the conclusion reached after the consultation to move to higher levels. The amendment also proposes to introduce a new definition of the term “process” in order to achieve the meaning provided for in Article 24A(1). It is also proposed to repeal section 24B(1), as its content falls under the proposed new section 24B(2). The amendments proposed under Article 24B(2) are intended to introduce procedures to be followed by anyone intending to publish unofficial information. The amendments come barely a year after Tanzania denied individuals and NGOs the right to file a direct complaint against the country with the African Court on Human and Peoples` Rights in Arusha. Section 5 is also amended by amending paragraphs (g) and (h) to broaden the Corporation`s objectives to promote all regulated marine transportation services. The reason for such a change is to cover all regulated services provided for by law and not just business with shipping agencies. The purpose of the amendment to clause 14 is to introduce new subsections (5) and (6) to remove the priority roles between the Registrar of Societies and the Registrar of NGOs in the registration of charities. The amendments also seek to define and maintain a company in the commercial register for the purpose of promoting trade, after obtaining the approval of the NGO Registrar certifying that the intended objectives are not covered by the Law on Non-Governmental Organizations. (2) The Registrar may require a law enforcement agency or public body to provide such facilities and services to its personnel as the Registrar considers necessary to assist the Registrar in carrying out its duties under this Act. (3) Every person, law enforcement agency or public body shall provide the Registrar with the cooperation and assistance necessary to enable the Registrar to carry out his or her duties under this or any other Act.
