    Members of the Dar Es Salaam Student Organisation on Wednesday (18 July) staged a pretest demonstration through the streets of the Tanzanian capital condemning the alleged massacre of 400 people at Wiriyamu, Mozambique by Portuguese troops.

    Hundreds of students, carrying banners and slogans marched side-by-side through the city centre of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs where they were addressed by Foreign Minister, Mr. John Malecela.
