Guest book Vol. 7
As the son of yacoub Mohammed Gharib (A man who was highly loved by the people and government of Zanzibar), my father always wanted me to see Zanzibar but left the world with this dream unaccomplished. I must say, this website is rather intriguing and hence has made it possible for me to see Zanzibar hence achieving the vision. The site is a perfect example of the Omani -Zanzibar connection & the deep rooted blood connections.
Zanzibars past, not excluding its present, has been my unquenchable passion. The pictures of bygone times simply overwhelmed my imagination. And the text accompanying the photos and sketches was absolutely educational. More Zanzibaris ought to make available photos and infornation, stories and anecdotes from and about our islands! Good job, great job, magnificient, - I say to this compiler! Issak E Issak
Thanks for this wonderful historical site. I would be pleased to know if you have any historical information and photos about the (al Muharmi trib) from A to Z. Please e-mail me at email@example.com ( Sabry Al Harthy ) from Oman I want to build this site soon for the generation coming.

REGARDING YOR QUESTION ON MAURICE RANDALL hE WAS BORN IN LITTLEHAMPTON IN 1866 TO WILLIAM HENDRY RANDALL (TAILOR) AND ELIZA( A SEAMSTRESS) HE left home at 14 years and signed on at sea to begin a career till the age of 30. His first ship was the gratitude which sailed from cardiff for New York then colombo. His talent for painting was noted by his captain and he became resposible for commissions to paint port scenes of african ports. Ones such painting was ZANZIBAR1913 which portrayed natives gazing out to sea. He returned to settle in Dorset and died in 1950 in Brighton. I have two unknown but signed watercolours by him in their original frames dating from the 1890,s. They are nautical scenes which was his main field. I have tried to view some of his works through the internet but as yet I have been unable to find much. If you have any images or inffo I would be obliged if you could get in touch.

The page is very useful since the young people who did not get the chance to view various things that appeared in Zanzibar in the past are able to read and understand alot of things.

There is a fellow who has been really asking about the Legendary Professor Muhammad Khamis Juma Bhalo. In his comment he stated that Prof. Juma Bhalo is now aging and that no one has made an effort to make a documentary about him. In response to that i would like to let him know that Prof. Juma Bhalo is a living legend, you may think that he is aging but for a fact he is not and that as far as all his fans are concerned, no documentary needs to be made on him for his Music is a documentary on its on.

What a pleasure beyond words this site of yours. The response of all portrays your efforts. You should bask in the warmth of the joy you have brought to so many. Likewise the joy you have brought to me of a place so distant but so near/ unreachable but I can close my eyes and imagine.

You did a great work about zanzibar history. I think the ministry of education of zanzibar need to teach this history to the students because most of the zanzibar student know nothing about where they came from. Thank you Ali kheri U.S.A

Dear Sir, First, congratulations on your excellent work. It is an asset to the research on the Revolution and Zanzibar in general. I have published a book on the Revolution and I would like to update it again. I like some of the photos in your website and would like to use them for the book with your permission (and of course would be credited to you). I would also like to send you a copy and would appreciate if you would let me know how I can get in touch with you, Best regards, Suleiman Shahbal email@example.com

I came across this site purely by accident. What a joy it is. My brother and I were sent to the UK in June 1964 from Baghani Zanzibar. My parents could not come and stayed behind with my younger sister.. We were sent to live with an English couple in Portsmouth. We were not permitted to speak Swahili or read the Koran. We had lost touch with all our friends and we did not see our parents until 1973. I therefore have very little knowledge of my homeland. I will keep visiting from now on. Thank you for sharing this with us. Zuwena

I realise your site is biased in favour of Goans most of whom went to St. Joseph School...... no mention is made about King George IV School which was more cosmopolitan and the best in Zanzibar, instead you talk about St Josef School where the results - O levels were just terrible. Eg in 1963 ; King G : 95 % 1st grade, 2% 2nd grade. 3% pass, no fails. St Josef: 2% 1st grade, 4% 2nd grade , 60% 3rd , rest failed!!!. I know this because my friend's father who was the best Maths and Scince teacher in the E.Africa helped a bunch of nuns who could not teach any of these subjects!!! No mention made of Hindoos and their contributions - they were highly placed professionals like doctors, engineers or teachers or big time cloves and coconut traders and exporters compared to the Goans who were mostly tailors and fishermen!!! Sorry but be honest and write the history as It was........

This is the most exhaustive and comprehensive site on Zanzibar I have seen and visited till date. However the author seems to have roots in Unjunga and so Pemba ( my birth place) suffers in the overall coverage. I am now all excited to revist my roots in Wete-Pemba after 42 years! Were literally thrown out by Okello's mafias....it's a tragedy that a heaven was pulled down and made unbearable lawless jungle in 1964 by this single mad man!! Also missing is the positive role of traders from India who settled down in late 1800s and contributed towards upliftment of society through commerce and economy. Also a host of Hindus ( mostly Gujaratis), Ishnashris, Khojs etc adding to the multicultural hue were instrumental in building up schools and hospitals, notable mention being contributions from The H.H. Aga Khan charities. All of them apart from the historical importance of Goans mentioned by you. Surely they all deserve more than just a mention if you perceive their roles as creators of more civilized and peaceful Zanzibar! Just my view point.....

Just to defend my article 'Can Muslim radicals make Zanzibar the Hong Kong of East Africa,' I actually did have the CUF acronym correct in my original piece, published in Glimpse Magazine, but somehow the editors at the Providence Journal managed to change the spelling... For the original, see: http://www.theglimpse.com/article_537.html
My senior thesis, on which the article is based, can be found here: http://www.artifex.org/~deharris/files/globalzanzibar.pdf
That said, I'm also a big fan of this site and never could have written that article nor my senior thesis on the topic without it! -David Evan Harris

i love this site magak keep offffffffffffffffffffffffff The site is so urban-focused. It seems as if Zanzibar is stone town. What about we from the villages, the majority? We need a place too, if this site meant for Zanzibar. We are interesting to read about present, much about past is biased. Yes you have found mass graves. Who killed those people? Africans or Arab or African-Arab stocks? Show to us injustice done to Africans too. All email@example.com

If you're going to visit Zanzibar, visit this site first! Excellent job! Easy to navigate, good information, well organized. Do your tour operators use it for reference/Historical info? They should! Send the link to Zantours etc....they could use the info to make conversations while driving from the airport more interesting! Congratulations. An American Lady

Well done. This is a terrific site. I was surfing for pictures of the Al Hathara and Sayyid Khalifa, both ships serving Zanzibar. The latter replaced tha Al Said and my parents went to the launching in UK. I think the Al Hathara sank in Zanzibar harbour but I may be wrong on that.

This is a site that has comprehensive information about our Zanzibar. The founder/developer/maintainer of this site has done an excellent job in designing this resourceful site. It was my first visit today, and I was astonished at the effort made to generate such wonderful output. It is the greatest site of my motherland that I have ever visited, I will be visiting again, and infact I have forwarded the link to every Zanzibari in my mailing list.

Date: 30 Mar 2006
Great site! Keeps me up to date with the volatile situation in Zanzibar ... One thing...David Evan Harris should think about getting his acronyms right before he goes off publishing what otherwise is a fairly decent article about the political situation in Zanzibar. What was utterly infuriating about his article 'Can Muslim radicals make Zanzibar the Hong Kong of East Africa' was that he couldnt get the abbreviation right for the very thing he was writing about - Civic Unived Front. CUF David, not CUP or CUT. Better do a bit more proof reading when you submit your Masters work!

At you the excellent site, a lot of useful info and good design, thank.

Great Site..... As a child i vividly remember some sights of Zanzibar. As some of my family was settled in Z'bar I knew about a lot of names of people from the island. Later while I was in Oman I had an opportunity of meeting more people from Zanzibar. I still dream to visit the place one day.. Parimal Mehta

How we glow over these novels of passion, when the story is told with any spark of truth and nature! And what fastens attention, in the intercourse of life, like any passage betraying affection between two parties? Perhaps we never saw them before and never shall meet them again. But we see them exchange a glance or betray a deep emotion, and we are no longer strangers. We understand them and take the warmest interest in the development of the romance. All mankind love a lover.

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
Woe to the man whose heart has not learned while young to hope, to love - and to put its trust in life.

Hi, comment 588. With no doubt u r one of those black foolish servants whom their brain has been whipped out by mainlands propaganda. Remember that Zan/Pemba islands are 100% Muslims habitants, only few years back some of the pundas fm mainland like you have come to settle in these islands in order to destroy the culture of the people here, but by the will of God these islands will be dominated by Muslims as they are the only original habitants. The arabs have done more than enough to appreciate, but after neally 40 yrs of the so called mapinduzi, nothing has changed except the islands are going into dark like [deleted].

Dear Barghash, First of all, congratulations for your excelent web about Zanzibar. I'm an archaeologist from Spain and I visited and worked in Zanzibar last and this summer. Now I'm going to publish an article about Maritime Heritage and Anthorpology of swahili coast and I'm very interested in some old pictures of your web (the ones with the tipology of dhows and old views of dhow navigation). Where did you get the pictures? Can I take them from your web and include them in my article? Thank for your attention. I'm wainting for your answer. Best wishes, Maria Jose (email@example.com)

Hi More more of such sites. Thanks
Date: 20 Dec 2005
Once again I return to this site to read the comments others have written, some are so genuine, others disrespectful. You as the webmaster must be proud to know the information you display creates joy in some, and arguments in others. I see the photos I have read the words of others and of yourself and wonder is this your internal conflict resolution. Are you home when you write these words living in another land wishing you were at peace in your soul. No need to answer this webmaster just thought I would place a comment to have you ponder that thought. Some of us search a lifetime and never realized what we wanted was to just come home....
