  • Description

    STUDENTS FROM THE FACULTY OF LAW AT DAR ES SALAAM UNIVERSITY VOICED THEIR CONCERN AT WHAT THEY CALL AMERICAN DOMINATION OF THE FACULTY STAFF, AT PROTEST MEETINGS YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) ON THE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS.

    SHOUTING "TO HELL WITH AMERICAN IMPERIALISM" THE LAW STUDENTS HELD ALOFT ANTI-AMERICAN POSTERS SETTING OUT THEIR VIEWS. THERE WERE PHOTOGRAPHS OF PRESIDENT NYERERE AND CHE GUEVARA AT THE MEETING. THE POSTERS DEMANDED THE EXPULSION OF ALL AMERICAN LECTURERS. SOME STUDENTS ACCUSED MEMBERS OF THE AMERICAN STAFF OF BEING "C.I.A. AGENTS AND SPIES".

    CALLING FOR TANZANIAN CONTROL AT THE UNIVERSITY A MEMORANDUM ISSUED BY MR. KALLU-KALUMIYA, STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE TO THE CURRICULUM COMMITTEE (FACULTY OF LAW), SAID THAT MANY STUDENTS WERE NOW OPENLY EXPRESSING THEIR FEAR THAT THE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE HAD BECOME AN "ISLAND OF IMPERIALIST INTRIGUE AND SUBVERSION AGAINST SOCIALISM IN TANZANIA AND AGAINST THE FORCES OF NATIONALISM AND PROGRESS IN EAST AFRICA".

    COMPLAINING THAT STUDENTS HAD HAD NO OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS THE NEW CURRICULUM, MR. KALLU-KALUMIYA CALLED ON THE SENATE TO REVOKE THE DOCUMENT UNTIL STUDENT OPINION HAD BEEN FULLY SOUNDED. COPIES OF THE STUDENT MEMORANDUM WERE SENT TO MEMBERS OF THE UNIVERSITY RULING BODY AND TO THE TANZANIAN MINISTER OF EDUCATION.

    LEADERS CALLED ON STUDENTS TO "MARCH UNDER THE BANNER OF REVOLUTIONARY STUDENT POWER AND UNITE AGAINST THE HANDFUL OF IMPERIALIST SPY-LECTURERS IN THE FACULTY OF LAW".

    FACULTY OF LAW STAFF HAVE AGREED TO MEET STUDENT REPRESENTATIVES TO DISCUSS THE CRISIS.
