Abstract:In this article the author explores the unpublished Swahili-language text of a Tanzanian nationalist, Lameck Bogohe, in the context of two published Swahili-language histories of TANU (Tanzanian/Tanganyika African National Union), both of which appeared in the 1960s. The purpose is two-fold: in order to make this text known to a wider audience, and to analyze the text as a reflection on political society by a person marginalized from power in the postcolonial State. The text shows, among other things, that intellectual histories of mid-twentieth-century Africa have the potential to offer new perspectives about postcolonial African political thought as well as on the wider question of how decolonization is understood.
