Tanzanian President John Magufuli has appointed Prof Ibrahim Hamis Juma as the country’s new chief justice (CJ) after served as acting CJ for almost eight months.

According to a statement issued by Director of Presidential Communication at State House Gerson Msigwa, President Magufuli appointed Prof Juma to replace Justice Mohamed Othman Chande who has retired in January this year.

The newly-appointed CJ of Tanzania, will take the oath before President Magufuli tomorrow at 10.00am, State House in Dar es Salaam.

On January, when sworn-in as Acting CJ, Prof. Juma pledged to trans-form the judiciary towards timely dispensation of justice through the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

Prof Juma becomes Tanzania’s sixth indigenous chief justice and country’s eighth CJ since 1960.
