In today’s world, information is considered as one of the most important resources in such that its accessibility is mentioned as a constitutional right in many countries’ constitutions. Information is this much emphasized, because it is of paramount importance as a driver of nearly everything in life. In Tanzania, access to information is mentioned in Article 18 (1) and 18 (2) of the constitution which states that: Without prejudice to expression the laws of the land, every person has the right to freedom of opinion and expression, and to seek, receive and impart or disseminate information and ideas through any media regardless of national frontiers, and also has the right of freedom from interference with his communications. Every citizen has the right to be informed at all times of various events in the country and in the world at large which are of importance to the lives and activities of the people and also of issues of importance to society (URT 1998).
