Abstract

This chapter compares the accountability functions of courts in Zambia, Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda. These five countries share important characteristics that suggest a similar role for the courts; yet, the accountability functions of the higher courts differ significantly, both across countries and over time. How can this variation in similar cases be explained?
