Informations

The armed forces of Tanzania are the Tanzania People's Defence Force (TPDF), also known as Jeshi la Ulinzi la Wananchi Wa Tanzania in Swahili. It was formed in September 1964 after a rebellion by the Tanganyika Rifles, a former colonial military force. It was instilled in the troops of TPDF from its inception that they were civilian-controlled people's forces.



Contrary to some neighboring countries, Tanzania never experienced a coup detat and civil war. TPDF was created with a specific mission to protect Tanzania and all Tanzanians, including their people and political ideologies. Since 2004, conscripts have been required to serve a minimum of 2 years.
