    Edinburgh celebrates Julius Nyerere

    The University has marked the legacy of one of its greatest alumni with a day of celebration.
    Dignitaries from Africa met with senior University staff at a day of celebration for Julius Nyerere, the first president of Tanzania.
    The event marked the tenth anniversary of Nyerere’s death, and explored his time at Edinburgh, impact on Tanzania and Africa and the creation of the Julius Nyerere Scholarships.
    Julius Nyerere

    As President of Tanzania, Nyerere oversaw the unification of Tanganyika and Zanzibar and was later a leader of the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa.
    Nyerere received a scholarship in 1949 to attend the University of Edinburgh where he obtained a Masters of Arts degree in Economics and History. He was the first Tanzanian to study at a British University and only the second to gain a University degree outside Africa.

    Speakers at the event

    Speakers at the event included: Ali Hassan Mwinyi, who succeeded Nyerere as President of Tanzania; Joseph Butiku, Executive Director of the Mwalimu Nyerere Foundation; Bernard Kamilius Membe MP, Minister for Foreign Affairs & International Cooperation of Tanzania and Mwanaidi Sinare Majaar, High Commissioner for Tanzania to the UK.

    The Julius Nyerere Scholarships were set up in 2009 in memory of Julius Nyerere.
    The scholarships provide funding for talented Tanzanian students to follow in the first presidents footsteps and study at the University of Edinburgh.
    Julius Nyerere’s legacies of internationalism and learning lie at the heart of the University of Edinburgh’s history, vision and ambition.

    Pamoja na mapungufu kidogo, Nyerere is the TZ's greatest of all time! Waliofuatia wote kama si uswahili ni wizi tu! Ours is a mixed blessing, nchi nzuri viongozi kizungumkuti! Sijui viongozi tutawapata wapi!

    Popote nje ya Tanzania ukisema wewe ni Mtanzania wanamkumbuka Mwalimu Julius kambarage Nyerere. Hata kama kwenye jiografia yao hawaioni Tanzania jina ni maarufu kwa kazi aliyofanya sio ujanja ujanja wa kudokoa pesa za walipa kodi.
