Title:Notes on the pre-history of TANU
Author:Austen, R.A.ISNI
Periodical:Makerere Journal
Geographic term:Tanzania
Subjects:political parties
Abstract:Documents from the archives of the former Tanganyika Territory Secretariat, which were recently made available, indicate greater political activity among pre-War Tanganyika Africans than had previously been suspected. This article gives a rough indication of what this activity was, suggests its relevance to more recent developments, and, above all encourages further research into the entire problem. The activities are described of: The Tanganyika African Civil Servants Association (1924) the Tanganyika African Association (1927/29), the Tanganyika African Welfare and Commercial Association (1930) the Bukoba Bahaya Union (1924).
