    1963 UN Speech

    Prime Minister Muhammed Shamte Hamad (as Head of Government of the independent and Sovereign State of Zanzibar) delivered the following historic speech on the historic day of 16th December, 1963 to the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization in New York.
    Mr. President! It is a very great honour and a very great pleasure for me to be here as Zanzibar's representative at the moment when Zanzibar's application to join the United Nations Organization has been accepted by the General Assembly. Zanzibar's entry to this great Organization is to my mind of special significance, and this is that there is no country so small and so modest in its means that it cannot be represented here in equal terms with the great nations of the world. There are some people who consider this scheme of things to be wrong. But I consider it to be a source of strength to this Organization, and that one that will inspire Zanzibar to use its privileges with a sense of responsibility and dedication to the ideals which prompted the establishment of the United Nations.
    To our many friends throughout the world who have done so much in supporting our struggle towards national liberation, to the Decolonization Committee which has contributed so much in speeding up our march to Independence, and to this august Organization of the United Nations to which we owe so much, I would like to convey my country's deep gratitude. To them we continue to look for aid and support in the upliftment of our people so that we may also be able to contribute our humble share towards the solution of the world's problems. To the distinguished delegates in the Security Council and in this General Assembly who paid tributes to the struggle and achievements of my country I would like to convey the sincere gratitude of my delegation. To all those who have sponsored our application, and to all the distinguished delegates who have unanimously voted us into membership of the United Nations, I say: Thank you.
    Mr. President. Political problems tend to hit the world headlines, but it is not generally known, for instance, that malaria which a few years ago used to cause as much havoc as any war, is now almost wiped out from Zanzibar, as a result of an intensive joint effort on the part of WHO, UNICIEF and the Government and people of Zanzibar. It is also not known that quietly but determinantly we are trying with the aid of the ILO and FAO to do away with the curse of under-employment. There are many other ways in which individual countries and international organizations have been co-operating with us in solving our problems. We are grateful to them all.
    Now that the energies of our people are unleashed by the restoration of our national pride and sovereignty we can look forward with confidence to greater and more comprehensive assistance from every quarter. Zanzibar is one of the smallest nations in terms of population and size to be accepted for membership. This in itself entails sacrifices for Zanzibar, sacrifices which are of little significance to nations of great wealth, but are of very great concern to us of slender means. These sacrifices we are very glad to make. If we are not rich in numbers, in territory, in material wealth we do not count ourselves poor in values of life which are so inestimably more important; and it is because of this that we feel we can contribute, even if only modestly, in the affairs of this Assembly.
    We have a long and honourable history and civilization behind us. Like so many of the great peoples of the world our roots are sprung from many different sources, from Africa primarily, but also from Arabia, from the civilization of Asia, Persia, from India and from many others. The Europeans in their great voyages of exploration found succour and sustenance on our shores. And men of many races found rest and stability in our islands from where to organize the exploration and development of Central and Eastern Africa It is due to these roots established over centuries, the mixing of so many cultures, that make us proud of our reputation for moderation and friendliness. While in the modern world we do not intend looking back to our past, it is this tradition on which we intend to build our future.
    Zanzibar is a constitutional monarchy founded on liberal and democratic traditions, governed by a Prime Minister and a Cabinet of elected Ministers, with collective responsibility and answerable to a National Assembly elected on the basis of universal adult suffrage. The Fundamental Human Rights to personal liberty and protection against discrimination are entrenched in Zanzibar's Constitution. Our overall aims are peace and progress at home and abroad. The chief object must be to help create a political atmosphere in the world in which man's real enemies of hunger, ignorance and disease can receive full attention so that resources and time are not wasted on fruitless matters of dissension. Zanzibar's general policy is one of benevolent and positive neutrality without discrimination against any country on grounds of race, creed, culture or ideology. It supports all measures of peace in the world on the basis of international cooperation. On the achievement of its independence Zanzibar has freely elected to remain a Member of the Commonwealth of Nations, and it is fitting and pleasurable to pay tribute to the continuing harmonious relations which have obtained between Zanzibar and the United Kingdom. We believe in the Commonwealth as a large number of equal and sovereign states of many peoples and cultures who have voluntarily and democratically joined together and are dedicated to the furtherance of peace, co-operation and prosperity throughout the world.
    It is the object of Zanzibar to strengthen the many ties it possesses with both Africa and the East. To this end we subscribe to the principles of the Bandung Declaration of 1955 and of the Charter of the Organization of African Unity framed at Addis Ababa this year. Zanzibar has particularly close relationship with the other territories of East Africa, and it is our intention to continue this in friendship and co-operation, whether inside or out of a form of an East African Federation. In this respect I am particularly glad that Kenya with which Zanzibar has so many close connections is being welcomed into this Assembly at the same time. At this proud moment in our history I may be permitted to quote Shakespeare and say: "We are two lions littered in one day."
    Sir, In submitting the application for membership for Zanzibar I have made a solemn declaration in common with that made by other nations represented here today that on behalf of my government I have accepted the obligations contained in the Charter of the United Nations, and have undertaken to fulfil them. This solemn declaration is a very real one for me, and I pray that this indeed will be so, and that Zanzibar in future will honour it to the full.
    Thank you, Sir.

    You know facts always prevail!

    nikiwa nachangia hii maada moja ya vitu vinavyowagusa wengi ni udini na Unyererelism!Iam christian and will lways be proud of being one. However, history should be facts for better foundation of our country. Mambo mengi nchi zetu hizi ni ya kupikwa na Nyerere ameonekana ni mpishi mkuu wa uongo, ni mwenye kutaka sifa, ni mnafiki na ukweli ni kuwa hata tusiposema sasa na sisi vitasemwa siku zijazo na watoto wetu.

    Sijajua mantiki ya Karume kuitwa baba wa taifa, sijajua pia mantiki ya kumuita Nyerere baba wa taifa! they lived they didi what they could but history will lways be there to judge them rightly!

    This is another shame of those who dont see this truth.

    Kwanini "Wazanzibari" hawadai haki ya kusherehekea sikukuu ya "uhuru" wao? na badala yake wanasherehekea "Mapinduzi"? Hivi Bw. Mzambia Mkuu wa Nchi ya Zanzibar alikuwa ni nani walipopata "Uhuru"?

    Mkuu,
    nimesikia kuwa Karume mdogo alianza kusherehekea zote mbili kuanzia 2008. Pengine ndio muafaka au maridhiano yaliwezekana katika Uongozi wake.
    Mkuu, mfumo waliotumia Zanzibar walipopata uhuru unatumika mpaka leo katika mataifa hapa duniani, kama UK, sweden, Japan, Spain, Norway, Denmark. n.k
    Kwamba yalifanyika mapinduzi kumkomboa mzawa, mbona leo Zanzibar haiko huru? Iko chini ya Muungano na kiuchumi, fukara na masikini zaidi kuliko TZ bara.
    Nafikiri Wazenj walisahau ule msemo wa "kuruka kutoka kikaangoni na kuingia motoni kabisa". Unafuu uko wapi?

    Nakumbuka wimbo wa Peter Tosh: "Keep on walking and don't look back." Mtageuka majiwe, shauri yenu.

    Kama Mohamed Shamte ndiye Baba wa Taifa la Zanzibar je, aliyekuwa bosi wake huko Zanzibar, Sayyid Sir Jamshid bin Abdullah Al Said, tumwiteje ?
    Unajua Mwanakijiji kuna watu wanastaajabisha kweli kweli, hawajui nani alikuwa Mkuu wa Nchi ya Zanzibar baada ya uhuru wa mwaka 1963. Mohamed Shamte aliteuliwa tu kuwa Kiongozi wa serikali na hivyo hawezi kupinduliwa, ama anafukuzwa au anaachishwa kazi. Anayeweza kupinduliwa ni Mkuu wa Nchi kwani yeye hateuliwi, ama anachaguliwa au anatwaa kwa kurithi/kupindua !

    Waberoya,

    Nikiwa mdogo nilifuatilia sana siasa za Tanzania. Nyerere pamoja na kuboronga katika siasa zake alikuwa modest sana katika mambo ya title. Kuna kipindi watu walitaka awe rais wa maisha, alikataa. Alikataa pia kutumia jina lake kwenye kiwanja cha michezo wakati anakifungua na akaomba Jina la Mandela litumika. Kama kumbukumbu zangu zitakuwa nzuri aliukataa ubaba wa taifa.

    Title alilokubali kwa moyo wake wote ni Mwalimu na ndugu. Ukimwita ndugu au Mwalimu Nyerere hakuwa na tatizo lolote. Nakumbuka utamaduni wa kuitana ndugu ulienea sana. Hata wazazi wetu wakaanza kulalamika kuwa tukiwandikia barua tukiwa mashuleni tunawaita ndugu. Kwikwikwi

    Elevation ya Nyerere kuwa baba ilikuja miaka michache kabla ya kifo chake. Na sijuhi kama mwenyewe alikuwa comfortable na title hilo au vipi? Tumuulize Jasusi kwenye hili suala. Kwa maoni yangu, labda alikubali kwa kuwa legacies zake zilikuwa under threats. Au makada kama kawaida yao walimshabikia huku wao wakivunja vile alivyopigania.

    Nchi nyingi za kiAfrika zinaiga kuwa na baba wa taifa. Lakini sio cheo chenye msingi wala historia yoyote kwa nchi hizo. Na kwa Tanzania, nchi iliyotokea baada ya muungano wa nchi mbili, founding fathers lingekuwa na uzito mkubwa sana.

    Na tukirudi kwa Karume, itakuwa ni kulazimisha kumwita ni baba wa taifa.

    Mwanakijiji;

    Huu ni uzushi wangu tu. Katika nchi zote za kiAfrika uhuru ulipatikana kwa vishindo. Sherehe za kila namna zilifanyika. Bendera mwingereza ilishuka na hile ya taifa uhuru ilipandishwa.

    Kuhusiana na uhuru wa Zanzibar, ninachokiona ni picha ya Shamte na baraza la mawaziri, hotuba ya Shamte kwenye UN na kopi ya hotuba hiyo.

    Huu uhuru gani usio na shamrashamra. Naomba nionyeshwe hizo picha za uhuru ambazo wazanzibari wote walifurahi na kuimba taarabu. Kama hakutakuwa na hizo picha hizo, something was wrong na uhuru huo.

    Kama mtashindwa kuleta picha za uhuru wa Zanzibar na shamrashamra zake, nitaendelea kupumzika siku za mapinduzi tu.

    Mwanakijiji,

    Kama ugomvi nipo tayari. Hapa nataka wanaodai huo uhuru wa 1963 waje na picha zaidi ya baraza la mawaziri la mndengereko mwenzangu shamte. Siku moja Maalimu Seif aliwataadharisha CCM na kusema kuwa mapinduzi yalitokea kwa sababu watu walihujumu demokrasia na uhuru kupatikana.
