Political leaders: visit of President Nyerere to New Zealand

President of Tanzania, Julius Nyerere, was the first African leader to visit New Zealand. He is shown here talking to New Zealand prime minister Norman Kirk (seated) and ex-prime minister Keith Holyoake (standing). He arrived in early 1974, and was described by one New Zealand newspaper as a leader of 'great presence, charm and ability'. Nyerere was a significant figure in world politics and developed an African form of socialism.
