Background: On the second day of his state visit to Zambia, President Julius Nyerere of Tanzania told a rally in Lusaka that 'international crooks' were trying to take control of African governments' policies. Dr. Nyerere said opportunists were taking advantage of countries hit by poor harvests and low export prices by offering to lend money on certain conditions. Diplomats sources took his words as a reference to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), previously denounced by Tanzania for demanding conditions incompatible with national policies. In his reply to President Kenneth Kaunda's welcoming address. Dr. Nyerere said African unity was the only means to defeat exploitation. Zambia is currently studying tough IMF terms, thought to include a drastic devaluation as a pre-condition to further loans. Earlier this year, Zambia and Tanzania signed a treaty establishing a joint permanent committee of cooperation.
