Abstract:Government predictability, accountability and transparency are important elements for the development of a stable environment. These are among the factors which are conducive for an effective State-society partnership. This paper provides perspectives on what ought to be considered for an effective legal framework to come into being that guarantees transparency and accountability in Tanzania. It concludes that the Constitution of Tanzania 1977 already provides for some safeguards and instruments for good governance as far as transparency and accountability are concerned. If the structures crafted in the constitution do not produce the expected results, it is because the agents concerned (judiciary, for example) are not following the norms and spirit behind them.
