Book Description

Originally published in 1953, this book records the Customary Law of the Sukuma tribe and discusses the differences in law whcih grew up in the various local federations, with the aim of unifying Customary Law for both the Tanzanians and European colonial authorities. The material is presented in short paragraphs which are connected logically to each other, but each of which can stand by itself if it should be necessary to quote it in a judgment.
