Justice Vincent Lyimo is a retired judge of the High Court of Tanzania. He retired from active service as a Judge of the High Court of Tanzania in March 2011 in terms of the 1977 Constitution of the United Republic of Tanzania.

However, as all men stand to be judged by their acts in a historical perspective, the following quotation is taken from the citation proceedings in the High Court of Tanzania, on the occasion of official bidding farewell to the retired Justice Vincent Lyimo, wherein it was said:
"Justice Vincent Lyimo served the Nation for thirty-seven (37) years of his life with all the ethics, honour, commitments and loyalty serving the legal vocation in different capacities"
