Muungano Day Celebration – 50 Years April 1964 - April 2014

On Saturday, April 26, 2014, Tanzania will celebrate Muungano (Union) Day. It is a public holiday in Tanzania, commemorating the day Zanzibar and Tanganyika joined together to form The United Republic of Tanzania.

After The United Republic of Tanzania was formed in 1964, the late Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere became the first President of the new Republic, and the late Sheikh Abeid Karume, then the

President of Zanzibar, became the First Vice President and Chairman of the Revolutionary Council. The late Rashidi Mfaume Kawawa became the Second Vice President in charge of Government business in the National Assembly.

The history of the union of Tanganyika and Zanzibar is undoubtedly unique. These two States agreed to unite for the benefit of all Tanzanians.


The Tanzanian Ambassador to the United States of America, H.E. Liberata Mulamula, invites you all to the 50th Anniversary of the United Republic of Tanzania, Muungano day 2014. The festivities will highlight Tanzanian culture and tourism. There will be cultural and art display, traditional dances, fashion display, food tasting and many more.
