Sammanfattning

The paper discusses the legacy of the ujamaa ideology in contemporary Tanzania through the concept of civil religion and current strives along inter-religious and intra-religious lines. By using Demerath III's theory on secularisation and sacralisation, contemporary religious voices in Tanzania are intepreted as agents of secularisation that desacralises the now sacred legacy of the ujamaa ideology, the primarly building block of the Tanzanian nation.
