REDEFINING WORK: SUBMISSIONS TO THE EACSO GRADING COMMITTEE
The Tanganyikan discontents came into the open in early 1964, when Nyerere was persuaded that when announcing a five-year development plan, scheduled for 12 May 1964, he should also announce some rearrangement of EACSO. What then happened was that a meeting of the Finance Ministers at Entebbe in February 1964 was without warning presented with an ultimatum.
The combined efforts of these institutions had a centralizing influence, which ensured, for example, that the East African High Commission, established in 1947/8 was transformed in 1961 into the East African Common Services Organization (EACSO) that in turn laid down the basis of the institutions of the initial East African Community (1967-1977).
The East African Common Services Organization (EACSO) was established in 1961 to replace the EAHC, which was deemed politically unacceptable, following that Tanganyika had attained independence from Britain in the same year.
