  • Description

    SEVERAL THOUSAND PEOPLE GATHERED AT UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, DAR ES SALAAM LAST WEEK AS 92 GRADUATES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF EAST AFRICA WERE CONFERRED WITH THEIR DEGREES BY PRESIDENT JULIUS NYERERE.

    THERE WERE A NUMBER OF SPEECHES BEFORE THE GRADUATION CEREMONY - INCLUDING THOSE BY CHEF KUNAMBI, THE UNIVERSITY REGISTRAR, BY THE VICE-CHANCELLOR, AND BY DR. CHAGULA, THE PRINCIPAL OF UNIVERSITY COLLEGE.

    DR. CHAGULA'S ADDRESS RECALLED, WITH REGRET, THE 'DARK AND DISTATEFUL PERIODS' DURING THE LAST YEAR. HE CONTINUED: 'THE MOST DEPRESSING PERIOD THE COLLEGE WENT THROUGH LAST YEAR WAS WHEN, ON OCTOBER 22, OVER 300 STUDENTS HAD TO BE SENT AWAY IN CONSEQUENCE OF THEIR DEMONSTRATION AGAINST THE TERMS OF THE TANZANIAN NATIONAL SERVICE.' HOWEVER, HE ADDED THAT THESE EVENTS HAD MADE 'BOTH THE STAFF AND THE STUDENTS OF THIS COLLEGE DERIVE A REVITALISED SENSE OF PURPOSE, AND A NEW IDENTIFICATION WITH BOTH THE TANZANIAN AND THE EAST AFRICAN COMMUNITY, OF WHICH THEY FORM A PART.'
    OTHER SPEAKERS ALLUDED TO THE UNIVERSITY - SPONSORED 'CONFERENCE ON THE ROLE OF THE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE IN A SOCIALIST TANZANIA.' THEY SAID THAT THE GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT OF THAT CONFERENCE HAD BEEN THE BRINGING TOGETHER OF BOTH ACADEMIC AND OTHER PEOPLE FROM THE REST OF SOCIETY, FOR AN EXCHANGE OF IDEAS AND VIEWS ON THE COLLEGE HOLE.
