Ujamaa Live Africa
Ujamaa Live Africa is Africas encyclo-media. A digital platform where Africans, young and old, from all walks of life can learn and be entertained through a variety of forms of content. Ujamaa is made by Africans for Africans and brings together people of a common identity.
Our aim is to create and sustain a Pan African Universe using online digital networks and platforms.
The Swahili word “ujamaa” means ‘extended family’, ‘brotherhood/sisterhood’. It asserts that a person becomes a person through the people or a community. (Humanity/Ubuntu/Chivanhu).
The idea of Ujamaa emerged from the writing and speeches of Tanzania’s first president, Julius K Nyerere, from the late 1950s and into the 1960s. It was a form of African socialism that blended socialist principles with a distinctly “communitarian” understanding of African societies and a strong commitment to egalitarian societies.
