    TANZANIA'S FORMER MINISTER FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS, MR OSCAR KAMBONA, RECEIVED A TUMULTUOUS WELCOME WHEN HE ARRIVED AT DAR-ES-SALAAM AIRPORT YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) AFTER SIX MONTHS ABSENCE IN HOLLAND, WHERE HE WAS UNDERGOING MEDICAL TREATMENT.

    AS THE PLANE TOUCHED DOWN, AND ROLLED TO A STOP, OVER TEN THOUSAND JUBILANT TANZANIANS BROKE INTO DEAFENING ROARS OF WELCOME, WITH DRUMMING, SINGING AND DANCING.

    MR KAMBONA, WHO IS NOW THE COUNTRY'S MINISTER FOR REGIONAL ADMINISTRATION AND SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE RULING POLITICAL PARTY - TANZANIAN AFRICAN NATIONAL UNION (TANU) - STEPPED DOWN FROM THE AIRCRAFT TO BE GREETED BY TANZANIA'S SECOND VICE PRESIDENT KAWAWA, MINISTERS, GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS.

    MR KAMBONA, WHO WAS ACCOMPANIED BY HIS WIFE AND FAMILY, WAS THEN GARLANDED AND CARRIED SHOULDER-HIGH THROUGH THE SINGING CROWDS BE MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT.

    IN A SHORT SPEECH AT THE AIRPORT, MR KAMBONA SAID THAT WITHIN A FEW WEEKS, UNIVERSITY GRADUATES FROM HOLLAND WOULD BE VISITING TANZANIA TO CARRY OUT RESEARCH WORK.
