Barnabas Albert SAMATTA
Retired Chief Justice of Tanzania and the current Chancellor of Mzumbe University

The retired Chief Justice of Tanzania, Barnabas Albert Samatta, is an alumnus of the University of Dar es Salaam. He was born on 20/07/1940 into a formally educated family, whose head of household—his father Cuthbert—was a teacher. Barnabas had thus a chance of following in the footsteps of his dad, as is commonly the case with parental influence in many African homes, but this did not happen with him. Instead, Providence had had different plans for him. Sixty-seven years after his birth and some 57 years after entry to his first class of formal education, he was to retire from a bench that had made him one of the country’s fine statesmen, not only with a staunch belief in law and in the ‘rule of law’ but also with a farreaching practical bent for it.
