  • Description

    In Dar Es Salaam members of TANU (Tanzania African National Union) Youth League gathered at the airport yesterday, to welcome home President Nyerere who's been attending the Commonwealth conference in Singapore and visiting India. They carried placards in support of Dr. Milton Obote, the ousted former President of Uganda, who is in Dar Es Salaam.

    Dr. Milton Obote flew to Dar Es Salaam when his army chief, General Idi Amin, took over control in Uganda. President Nyerere of Tanzania, who was visiting India at the time on his way home from the Commonwealth Conference, cut short his visit and flew home to Dar Es Salaam immediately. He is reported to have had a long meeting with Dr. Obote in Dar Es Salaam last night.

    The TANU Youth League support Dr. Obote's claim that he is still the President of Uganda. In Uganda, General Amin has warned that any attempt to reinstate Dr. Obote by force from Tanzania would be resisted.
