  • Description

    PRESIDENT NYERERE OF TANZANIA USED THE TRADITIONAL MAY DAY CELEBRATIONS IN DAR-ES-SALAAM TO CASTIGATE THOSE WHO DEMANDED "THE CONVENIENCES OF MODERN LIFE WHILE MAINTAINING THE ATTITUDES OF THEIR GRANDFATHERS". IT WAS NO USE SHARING THE AMBITIONS OF THE UNITED STATES, OR RUSSIA, OR CHINA, WITHOUT MATCHING THEM IN MODERN THINKING AND HARD WORK, HE SAID.

    PRESIDENT NYERERE SAID IT WAS "SHAMEFUL" THAT TANZANIA, WITH ENOUGH LAND FOR ALL TO TILL, AND WITH A CLIMATE THAT PROVIDED CROPS ALL THE YEAR ROUND, SHOULD STILL BE IMPORTING FOOD FROM ABROAD. IN THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC; HE HAD SEEN FARMS WON FROM THE DESERT; SWEDES AND ISRAELIS HAD TO LEAVE FROM THE LAND BEFORE THEY COULD USE IT, AND THE BRITISH LIVED LIKE SARDINES IN A CAN. LIKE THESE PEOPLES, THE TANZANIANS WOULD ALSO HAVE TO WORK FOR THEIR PROGRESS, PRESIDENT NYERERE SAID.

    ON ZANZIBAR, TANZANIA'S VICE-PRESIDENT, SHAIKH ABEIKH AMANI KARUME, REVIEWED THE PARADE. HE SAID THE IMPERIALISTS HAD BROUGHT THAT THE UNION OF TANGANYIKA AND ZANZIBAR (TANZANIA) WOULD NOT WORK BUT IN HAG".

    SYNOPSIS: IN COMMON WITH COUNTRIES ALL OVER THE WORLD, TANZANIAN WORKERS CELEBRATED MAY DAY WITH PARADES, MUSIC AND SPEECHES. THEY WERE CELEBRATING A YEAR IN WHICH EXPORTS HAD RISEN TWENTY-SEVEN PER CENT FOR THE MAINLAND - A NEW RECORD.

    THE TANZANIAN REPUBLIC WAS FORMED EXACTLY THREE YEARS AGO.
