one major landmark in the history of Tanzania'l is that dynamic vision of a just society, and consequently the move toward that direction the construction of an egalitarian society, where all shall live in disnity. This major landmark on our path was laid down by the world famous Arusha Declaration of 1967. It is from this landmark on that our path attracted. world attention. As some of our admirers put it: Under the imaginative leadership of President Nyerere,this small, poor African nation has rejected imported models of development and struck out on its own path. [They classified it as one of the most fascinating and critical human experiments on earth.] That path can be summarized by Ujamaa, a Swahili word roughly equivalent to socialism, but carryinq as well the meaning of family and community spirit.
