Uhuru na Maendeleo
Pili, kuna uhuru wa kutosumbuliwa na njaa, maradhi, na umasikini. Na tatu, kuna uhuru wa mtu binafsi; yaani haki yake ya kuishi, akiheshimika sawa na wengine wote, uhuru wake wa kusema na uhuru wake wa kushiriki katika uamuzi wa mambo yote yanayogusa maisha yake, na uhuru wa kutokamatwa ovyo na kutiwa ndani kwa kuwa tu kamuudhi mkubwa, japo kama haku-vunja sheria yo yote. Yote hayo ni mambo yanayohusu uhuru, na hatuwezi kusema kuwa Wananchi wa Tanzania ni huru, mpaka tuwe tuna hakika kwamba wanao uhuru wa mambo yote hayo.
Full Speech / Statement:
"We can try to cut ourselves from our fellows on the basis of the education we have had; we can try to carve our for ourselves an unfair share of the wealth of the society. But the cost to us, as well as to our fellow citizens, will be very high. It will be high not only in terms of satisfactions forgone, but also in terms of our own security and well-being."
Julius Kambarage Nyerere, from his book Uhuru na Maendeleo (Freedom and Development), 1973.
