II. Content
The memorandum was written by the Gouverneur of German East Africa, Gustav Adolf von Götzen, and describes the origins of the uprising as they appeared to him in 1905. He gives several reasons for the revolt, including colonial policies and the activities of local religious leaders. As a consequence of the uprising, Gouverneur von Götzen proposed the construction of further railway lines into the interior, an increase in the number of colonial troops serving in German East Africa, and the easing of restrictions regarding the import of spirits and other alcoholic beverages.
