    Nyerere issued the Arusha Declaration, which outlined his socialist vision of ujamaa that came to dominate his policies. The policies led to a collapsing economy, systematic corruption, and unavailability of goods. In the early 1970s Nyerere ordered his security forces to forcibly transfer much of the population to collective farms and, because of opposition from villagers, often burned villages down. The campaign pushed the nation to the brink of starvation and made it dependent on foreign food aid.
    In 1985, after more than two decades in power, he relinquished power to his hand-picked successor. Nyerere left Tanzania as one of the poorest, least developed, and most foreign aid-dependent countries in the world......

    It is unfortunately, true! As they say, the truth hurts!

    The implementation problems of The Arusha Declaration were compounded by overzelous and repressive party leaders like Kawawa.

    Nyerere was a good man who meant well. But his policies sunk us. This is a difficult thing to accept but remember that socialism failed everywhere.
