Regardless of what they did in power, the independence generation, meanining the Nyereres and Kawawas will always be remembered for taking back the country from colonial powers and bringing about political independence. What they did while in power I believe can be excused because they had to start everything from the scratch. There was no precedence to follow or examples to look from. It was literally a time of trial and era. So their legacy will always we the independence of Tanganyika and Zanzibar above everything else. The next generation is the Mkapas and Kikwetes. They cannot claim any part in the struggle for independence. Unlike the "Independence generation" they also cannot claim they had no precedence to follow or examples to look from. The question is what is according to you JF members, the legacy of the first post independence generation? When the Mkapas, Kikwetes, Lowassas are long gone what will Tanzanians remember them for?
