DAR ES SALAAM, Dec. 7 -- AS more Tanzanians increasingly turn to the internet to buy products and services, the existing consumer protection laws must be revisited to make e-commerce rational.

It also helps implement new regulations that aim to achieve transparent and fair protection for consumers in relation to advertising, marketing, contract terms and payments.
