Abstract: During the 2016 annual Zanzibar Revolution celebrations, CCM supporters demonstrated using a statement that depicted ‘anti-foreigner’ sentiments towards their fellow countrymen. By looking at the Tanzanian African nationalist discourse and history, this research paper analyses how this ‘anti-foreigner’ rhetoric demonstrated in 2016, can find its origins in the African nationalist independence movement of Tanzania. In conjunction with Tanzanian history and politics, African nationalist literature obtained from secondary sources are used to examine and understand African nationalist motivations and discourse. These motivations, ideas and discourse are then used to contextualise the 2016 demonstration’s anti-foreigner rhetoric. This research paper finds that the language, ideas, and even the day of the demonstration emphasis the African nationalist independence movement of Tanzanian but more specifically of Zanzibar.
