Tanzanians are divided over death penalty, say activists

Findings from the recently launched Tanzania Human Rights 2011 report show that there is a need to seek public opinions on the death penalty.

The Legal and Human Rights Centre (LHRC) assistant researcher, Onesmo Olengurumwa, says that of the 6 000 people who were interviewed and data collected from other sources show that people are interested in airing their opinions.

"When collecting data, we realised that more people today have been sensitised about the existence of the death penalty and that opinions are divided," explains Olengurumwa.
