Nyerere by Dr. Tunde Oseni

Nyerere
By Tunde Oseni

Nyere

The Philosopher-King of Africa
Who made equality of men and women a priority
‘Our poverty threatens your prosperity’
Nyerere told the West with all sincerity

Writing was a skill
Speaking was a gift
Churning out ideas was a talent
For the man of the people
Who cherished morality over feferity

Tributes cannot be enough
Thanks cannot fill the tank
For the integrator of our culture
And the binder of our boundaries

Nyerere, the Great mind
The Ujamaa you espoused
Is not yet in our land
It is not yet uhuru
Even under Kenyatta, the Uhuru
