Tanzanian authorities this week appeared to back down for the first time in the face of relentless opposition to the country’s port management deal with an Emirati firm.

The government abandoned a review of laws that would have aided the controversial agreement with DP World.

Mr. Feleshi told a parliamentary sitting in Dodoma that the government had accepted ‘advice’ from a House committee to remove the two sections in the bill that contained the proposed amendments.

However, Attorney General Eliezer Feleshi announced on Tuesday that the government had withdrawn proposed amendments to two laws governing Tanzania’s natural resources that were up for passage by the National Assembly.

“Following our meeting with the Parliamentary Governance, Constitutional, and Legal Affairs Committee, both sections have been scrapped and the Bill amended accordingly,” he announced to a loud applause from a significant number of legislators.

And the government abandoned a review of laws that would have aided the controversial agreement with DP World.

In conclusion, parts 4 and 5 of the bill proposed amendments to the Natural Wealth and Resources (Permanent Sovereignty) Act and the Natural Wealth and Resources (Review and Re-negotiation of Unconscionable Terms) Act, both of 2017, to ensure neither law could be applied to “prejudice the performance of sea, dry, and lake ports in Tanzania.”
