Tanganyika became independent from the British protectorate on 9th December 1961. In 1964 the President Julius Nyerere signed the union of Tanganyika with Zanzibar in the new United Republic of Tanzania. The government followed the model of the African socialism until 1985. The first multiparty elections were held in 1995. Tanzania has always enjoyed peace and stability, though the economic growth has been stagnant.
