Julius Nyerere: Previous Tanzanian leader honoured by African Union statue

Nyerere is the 3rd chief to be honoured with a statue outdoors the AU headquarters, just after Ghana’s founding father and pan-Africanist Kwame Nkrumah, and Ethiopia’s emperor Haile Selassie, who turned a symbol of African nationalism for resisting Italy’s attempts to colonise the region in the 1930s, and later agreed to host the OAU.
