Chama cha Mapinduzi

A fierce defender of African liberation movements, Tanzania was involved in a brief war against Idi Amin's brutal regime who claimed part of the north-western district near Bukoba for Uganda. Tanzania was victorious.

In 1977 the Chama cha Mapinduzi (The Revolutionary Party) replaced TANU, which had conducted the nation's policies for 23 years.
