The Attorney General Chambers of Zanzibar falls outside the purview of Union matters, and is a Department of the Government of Zanzibar.
This organization has been created with the purpose of harmonizing the legal affairs and maintains good relation with public and government machineries so as to alleviate community problems, to facilitate the creation of modern society free from injustices, discrimination and which observes Rule of Law.

The AGC has a pivotal role to play in all the vital functions of the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar, namely the introduction of a new, democratic constitutional order, the administration of justice; the creation of appropriate legal framework for development and major economic reforms; and the drafting of legislations  to facilitate the machinery of good governance.

Structurally, the Zanzibar Attorney General is the Principal Legal Advisor to the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar.

The Attorney General is also an e-officio Member of the House of Representatives. Attorney General’s Chambers’ eight years strategic development plan aims at achieving particular long-term objectives.

Many conceptual reasons have necessitated systematic planning by the management of Attorney General’s Chambers.  These include environmental factors, market, organizational factors, financial history and forecast.

A number of external factors influence AGC’s choice of direction and action plan, and, ultimately, its organizational structure and internal processes. These factors can be categorized into three groups:

Factors in the remote environment

  • Economic.
  • Social.
  • Political, and
  • Technological factors.
  • Factors in the industry environment, and
  • Factors in the operating environment of the organization.

All the mentioned factors call for a clear understanding of their influence and enable AGC to devise appropriate coping mechanisms in the strategic development plan.
