Tanzania is mulling over fast-tracking the process of computerising its judicial system in a bid to ease and improve court's service delivery, Tanzanian Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda said on Monday.

While addressing judges and magistrates from across Tanzania, Pinda said it was time for Tanzania to move away from paper work to digital technology, which will speed up delivery of justice. "We are living in a very up-to-date world, which makes us have nowhere to hide rather than taking practical actions to cope with the technological changes.

Judges and magistrates need to get away with paper work, and instead we should digitalise our court's services to speed up delivery of justice," the Prime Minister said in the northern safari capital of Arusha.

"Adoption of technology will help improve court procedures and make courts deliver justice in time..this will also reduce backlog of cases in our courts," he said.
