ABSTRACT

Any researches or studies related to the african continent are incomplete if they don’t approach the pan-Africanism subject, political, philosophical, and social movement, which advocates for the union and the liberation of all Africans that find themselves both in the continent and in the diaspora, against the foreign domination policy, either in the physical point of view (slavery, forced labour, and exploitation), or in the emotional or intellectual, having constituted, for that reason, the ideological basis for different African nationalist movements. Names as Kwame Nkrumah (Ghana), Julius Nyerere (Tanzania), Jomo Kenyata (Kenya), Haile Sellassie (Ethiopia), Nnamdi Azikiwe (Nigeria), Kenneth Kaunda (Zambia), Amílcar Cabral (Guinea-Bissau), Marcelino dos Santos (Mozambique) among others, represent some of the most distinguished pan-Africanists of the continent. Among them, it is important to note Julius Nyerere, the first president of the United Republic of Tanzania, between 1962 (date of its independence from the United Kingdom) and 1985 (date of his retirement), and recognized by his support to various African nationalist movements. “Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Namibia, South Africa, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan” (172), are some examples of countries whose nationalist movements operated from Tanzania.
