''There in fact a true law - namely, right reason - which is in accordance with nature, applies to all men, and is unchangeable and eternal. By its commands this law summons men to the performance of their duties; by its prohibitions it restrains them from doing wrong. Its commands and prohibitions always influence good men, but are without effect upon the bad. To invalidate this law by human legislation is never morally right, nor is it permissible ever to restrict its operation , and to annul it wholly is impossible. Neither the senate nor the people can absolve us from our obligation to obey this law, and it requires no Sextus Aelius to expound and interpret it. It will not lay down one rule at Rome and another at Athens, nor will it be one rule to-day and another tomorrow. But there will be one law, eternal and unchangeable, binding at all times upon all peoples''
Chief Justice of Tanzania
IPP Media, The Guardian Editor states:
''Few are unfamiliar with the conditions in which Tanzania’s judicial system has been operating or the achievements made in improving matters, with a view to living up to the expectations of the likes of Gladstone.....Ancient Roman lawyer, writer, scholar, orator and statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero is meanwhile credited with having once said: “The more laws, the less justice.” What Cicero possibly meant was that what mattered most was not the number of laws drawn up or enacted but rather the extent to which they were effected and observed''
What Cicero's said was:
''But there will be one law, eternal and unchangeable, binding at all times upon all peoples''Tanzanian fails on these fundamantal points, an indictent indeed given the passage of time from the date they were spoken!
