Tanzania: The spirit of Nyerere

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Tanzania, Development, History, Politics, Women & Gender

Sokari discusses Mwalimu Nyerere [1], the first president of Tanzania and the Arusha Declaration: “I had never read the Arusha Declaration and only have superficial knowledge of Julius “Mwalimu” Nyerere in terms of his role in the struggle for independence in Africa and as a Pan Africanist along with Nkrumah. But reading it now I realise what a revolutionary document the Arusha Declaration (AD) was and still is.”
