‎"We Zanaki have two reputations among our neighbors." Nyerere has said of his tribesmen. "One, of being cunning, and the other, which follows the first, of being untrustworthy. People will say, 'A Zanaki friend will kill you' - which is not true. I don't know how we got that reputation. William Edgett Smith quoting Nyerere in We Must Run While They Walk: A Portait of Africa's JULIUS NYERERE. p. 37.
"In June, The Economist of London had declared, in an article entitled "The Perils of Nyerere," that the President had "managed half the work of a python." It continued: "He swallowed Zanzibar all right but he did not crush its fighting force first. The live animal is a long time digesting, and its kicks are being felt hurtfully, and possibly even fatalyy, deep inside Tanganyika's body politic." William Edgett Smith in We Must Run While They Walk: A Portait of Africa's JULIUS NYERERE. p. 179.
