In 1967, newly independent Tanzania led by President Julius Nyerere issued The Arusha Declaration, one of the great documents of the 20th century.
It confronts the problems for economically poor countries developing economically while trying to remain independent of international capital.
Beginning with the working life of the people, especially of women in the countryside who ‘work harder than anyone else’,
it sets out an alternative strategy of Ujamaa or `African socialism': self-reliance, co-operation and preventing the corruption of the government and the ruling party.

President Nyerere continued the struggle for African unity which President Nkrumah of Ghana had initiated.
Despite poverty, Tanzania has uniquely succeeded in avoiding ethnic and other wars and dictatorships.
