Abstract:Mwalimu Nyerere, the first President of Tanzania, died on 14 October 1999. This essay presents a sketch of his involvement in the liberation of southern Africa from colonialism and racism, dealing with his role as co-founder of the Organization of African Unity in 1963 and his backing of the Lusaka Manifesto (1969) and the Mogadishu Declaration (1971) of Heads of State of East and Central Africa against the apartheid regime, with Tanzania's assistance to the independence struggles of Mozambique and Angola, and Nyerere's stance against South African and US intervention in Angola.
