In the Ujamaa movement, the masses are not only the main body of the Ujamaa movement, but also the driving force of the Ujamaa movement. Only when the masses themselves have a sense of subjectivity can the Ujamaa movement be promoted better. At the same time, Tanzania also constructs mass subjectivity from the concept, system and system. In the actual Ujamaa movement, we can see that only by respecting the will of the masses, following the development law of productive forces, and reducing administrative intervention can the masses play their subjective role. Therefore, it is necessary to conform to the law of the development of productive forces, clarify the position of the ruling party and the people, and let the play of the subjective role of the people be based on historical materialism.
