The late Julius Kambarage Nyerere was nicknamed �Musa� (Moses) during the later, post-independence years for leading his people from slavery and guiding them toward a free land of prosperity � the Promised Land. The Tanzanian odyssey chronicled in this book, which first appeared ten years ago as Tanzanians to the Promised Land, has been updated with new research. The author- also an engineer and a journalist- offers an enlightened and unbiased discussion of the journey and both sides of the contributions - successes and failures - made by former presidents and their systems of administration: the late Mwalimu Julius K. Nyerere, Alhajj Ali H. Mwinyi, and Mr. Benjamin W. Mkapa. Tanzanians� hopes and expectations of the incumbent president, H.E. Mr. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, are also discussed. It is not intended as a political campaign of any kind, for any party or any individual. As a brief, yet comprehensive guide to the understanding of the nation�s political and economic history, it puts forward suggestions concerning important areas of the country's economic development. Nyerere unfortunately didn�t live to see his people arrive at the hoped-for destination, and I. J. Werrema�s original inspiration to write, at forty years of independence, is sustained because after fifty years The Promised Land is Still Too Far.
