Although Tanzania has enjoyed political stability and national unity since independence, it has posted mixed results on its governance report card. The World Bank’s Governance Indicators rank the country among the least effective country governments surveyed in 2009.
Although the country has an array of anti-corruption measures, cases of corruption remain rampant. The 2009 National Governance and Corruption Survey report highlights greed, moral indecency by public officials, poor law enforcement, and lack of control and accountability of public officials among the leading causes of corruption.
In June 2011, the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) reported a slight increase in the number of Sim-card holders from 21.1 million in December 2010 to 21.2 million in March 2011. The number of internet users was estimated at 4.8 million, out of which 5 per cent used internet services from cyber cafes, 35 per cent from organisations and 40 per cent from households.
