Dar es Salaam. The government has opposed a constitutional petition in which six Tanzanians who live and work abroad are challenging sections of the law that prohibit dual citizenship.

Through preliminary objections, state lawyers want the High Court to dismiss the petition over defects in the originating summons filed by the petitioners.

The government is also objecting the fact that the originating summons have not been signed by the petitioners and their lawyers and that the case violates the Section 4 of the Basic Rights and Duties Enforcement Act.
