7 July - Saba Saba Day in Tanzania
Saba Saba Day celebrates (among other things) the 1954 founding of the Tanzanian political party, TANU, the Tanganyika African National Union. Saba Saba means "seven seven" in Swahili, the national language of Tanzania (and of Tanganyika and Zanzibar, the two countries whose union created the United Republic of Tanzania in 1964). Saba Saba can also refer to the Dar es Salaam International Trade Fair. The fair is held every year on this date at the Saba Saba grounds near Kurasini in Dar es Salaam.
Saba Saba Day in Kenya is remembered as the day when protests took place throughout the country. On July 7, 1990 Kenyans took to the streets to demand free elections. The politicians who had called for the protests, Kenneth Matiba and Charles Rubia, were beaten and arrested by the then tyrannical dictator President Moi.
Today, Kenya, Saba Saba has taken on a new meaning, with civil societies and Social Justice Working Groups calling for respect for the constitution, an end to police brutality and killings.
