Records from the Commission for Human Rights and Good Governance (CHRGG) indicate that the police is the leading government institution on human rights violations for the past eight years.

The CHRGG director for Research and Documentation, Ms Epiphania Mfundo, said yesterday that out of 1,265 human rights violation complaints reported by people to the commission since it came into force in 2002, 80 per cent of them involved the police force.

“Most of the complaints were about police delays in investigating cases and cooking of cases,” she said when making clarifications at a news conference at the CHRGG headquarters at Haki House in Dar es Salaam.

Ms Mfundo named Dar es Salaam as the leading region with more cases of human rights violations by the police, followed by Mwanza, Tanga, Tabora, Kilimanjaro, Kagera and Mara regions.
