British Commandos minimized peace during the army mutiny in Dar es Salaam in 1964


President Nyerere on a ride over a British military tank driven by its commando which had just arrived from England aboard a military plane which landed at the Dar es Salaam International Airport at night during the army mutiny in 1964. I didn’t even know that it’s the British government who came to restore peace and order in the country when the army went on a strike in 1964. They were invited immediately to curb the rioting soldiers at the invitation of the British High Commissioner in the country who was requested by a letter which was written by the then Prime Minister Mzee Rashid Kawawa.
