In Tanzania, various sectors are regulated such as water and energy and so forth. For the case of this paper, the energy sector particularly electricity sector is the focal point. The electricity sector is regulated by the overall organ which is the Energy Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA) which is established by EWURA Act. However, the electricity sector still faces various challenges.
