Guest Book Vol. 3
I was born and bred in Zanzibar. The pictures brought back memories of my childhood. I visited Zanzibar in December 2000 and was saddened by what has become of Forodhani, the beautiful park has now become a market place. The street light are gone, there are food stalls and vibatari all over the place. Is this how Zanzibar promotes tourism?. by the way the filthy market place is just close to many historic building and tourists attraction (one of them being beit al ajaib). As for the history, I am shocked to learn of mass graves, our parents never said anything about mass graves. They are part of the history of Zanzibar (just like slave trade), the public should therefore be allowed to view them. Where are these graves anyway, I would like to see them when I visit Zanzibar. I have learnt a lot about the royal family, Mr. Barghash are you a descendent of the Sultan or have you just borrowwed the name Barghash. If yes are you considered royal in Oman today? (just curious). I'd love to hear from the class of 1982 (form four, Tumekuja Secondary). I suspect most of them live abroad. If you happen to read this please drop me a line: ---- Some of my old friends: Fatma Suleiman Elharthy, I hear she lives in England, Sangeeta and Siran Mukhrejee daughter of the Indian Consul 1982, Farhat Sheralli, Zuhura Ali, Francisca, Greta etc, I'd love to hear from you all. good work Mr. Barghash keep on updating the website. There are many more good women and men (Karume and friends excluded) that make the history of Zanzibar, we would love to hear about them and some more pictures please. Finaly to the the Honourable Minister of Tourism do something about Forodhani bring back the glory. GOD BLESS ZANZIBAR, MY MOTHERLAND layla Pretoria Republic of South Africa
I grew up in zanzibar but never heard of mass graves. wher are these graves I would like to see them next time I visit zanzibar, Who is Okello I thought Karume lead the so called revolution. I find the history of the royal family very interesting, was Salma married to a European or what (her son's name is Rudolph). I learnt a lot about the royals what about other prominent member of the society then (I mean non royals). I would like to learn about Said bin Ali Elmugheiry of Pemba, I think but am not sure He worked for the Sultan (I am not sure which). By the way Tumekuja is my former high shool you brought back a lot of memories, good memories for that matter. Very informative, interesting - keep up the good work.

Great job, Bargash. I visit your site often, especially for the latest news. The story of Zanzibar is a story of innocence lost. It always pains me to read about the hard times that have befallen our island-paradise. Please keep updating your site with more recent photos. Thank you. Aspi Dastur, Pittsburgh, USA.
I think it would be better to add some more picture to this web. Thank suleiman Al-siyabi

And its a great site which is include a lot of picture which make more interest for everyperson who visit it, if it was just history with out picture will be boring but it look fantanstic. Also try to updated it for all the event which happen recently.
Bargash, This is the most interesting and fascinating piece of work - congratulations! I was myself born in Zanzibar - Baghani Street, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bansilal Ahuja of Commercial Institute. My own name is Asha Mbonde nee Ashalatta AHUJA, of Punjabi parents, and had my education at the St. Joseph's Convent School. This also applied to my sisters and brothers, who are now all abroad. I still remain and live in Dar es Salaam. Regards. I would love to hear from you.
Thank you for the wonderful old photograps you have saved on this pages. There I find the ambiente of mystery and ancient flair which always has caught me when visiting Zanzibar, where stories and history jump on you at every corner and make your imagination get on high speed. I love Zanzibar, too.
Book: A Girl from Zanzibar http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1885586604/102-7799356-0132930 The wanderings of Marcella D'Souza, the protagonist of Roger King's brilliant new novel, have begun in her native Zanzibar; taken her to the bustling, multi-ethnic streets of Bayswater, London; and finally deposited her in a quiet college town in snowy Vermont, where she has been assigned to teach a vaguely-defined course in "multi-cultural studies." Looking back on her odyssey, she has this observation: "I think I have the making of a new theory here. Maybe these days, everything is so international, there's always an advantage in being from somewhere else. What is important is not local knowledge, but foreign knowledge. If the whole world is in motion, then the world's displaced are those who stay at home." "Those who stay at home" have had little role to play in Marcella's world. As a naive, ambitious newcomer to London--the New York Times calls her a "modern-day Candide"--she falls in with a group of equally peripatetic friends, people whose racial identity, national origin, and even religious affiliations can only be expressed via a long series of adjectives: "I've got it," an earnest British friend remarks of Marcella herself, "You're a Goan Indian Portuguese Arab African of Catholic Moslem parentage." This group of friends, living a hustling and often exuberant existence in the immigrants' netherworld of Thatcher's England, contains elements that the reader rightfully suspects will pull Marcella into dangerous waters. And indeed, from the novel's first page we know that she will end up serving time in prison for an unnamed crime. But the novel unfolds with such luminous grace, effortlessly moving us from scenes of the past, into the present, and back again yet more years, that we surrender to its shifting timeline without impatience. Instead, our knowledge of Marcella and her world becomes more richly layered. Our deepening understanding makes the novel's final revelations far more satisfying then if they had been disclosed earlier. A gloriously enjoyable novel, and one that adds to the reader's perception of a world that exists, if below the radar, in the most ordinary corners of the U.S. and Europe today.
This is truly a great website, I left Zanzibar 40 years ago (August 9); I returned once in 1990 and was saddened to see how much it had changed for the worse. The pictures and postings on the website bring back memories of the wonderful childhood I had on the island. Thanks, Barghash! I am hoping that someone who visits this site will be able to direct my email address to Rashida Yusuf, a good friend of mine, from St. Joseph's Convent and King George IV School. I have checked several sources to no avail. Last I heard, she lives in England (somewhere around London), she has a daughter and may be living with her mother. Rashida, Ackama George and I were good friends. Any infomation would be greatly appreciated. Joanita Gonsalves Birkmeyer email@example.com
MUGU@MAGA.COM FINE SITE OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
AS I RECALL, THE GOAN COMMUNITY IN ZANZIBAR, WERE GENERALLY INVOLVED IN THE SERVICE INDUSTRIES. A COLONIAL OFFICER (WHOSE NAME I CANNOT REMEMBER) CAME OUT WITH A BOOK ENTITLED "ISLE OF ZANZIBAR" IN WHICH HE DEVOTED A CHAPTER TO THE CONTRIBUTION THAT GOANS MADE IN THE CIVIL SERVICE IN ZANZIBAR. HE HAD HIS HAND ON THE PULSE OF THE COMMUNITY WHEN HE DESCRIBED THESE CIVIL SERVANTS AS HONEST, HARD WORKING AND LOYAL. IT IS THESE VERY QUALITIES THAT HAVE ENDEARED THIS NOW EXPATRIATE COMMUNITY, TO WHATEVER COUNTRY THAT THEY HAVE SETTLED IN. IT IS SUCH A PITY THAT DUE TO THE MANY UNCERTAINTIES THAT WERE SPAWNED BY THE REVOLUTION, THAT MANY GOANS LEFT ZANZIBAR SO THAT THEY COULD FIND A COUNTRY WHERE THEY COULD RAISE THEIR CHILDREN IN PEACE AND TRANQUILITY. I KNOW THAT I FOUND MY NICHE BUT HAVE REGRETS THAT I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF ZANZIBAR, AS I HAVE, TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF MY ADOPTIVE COUNTRY.
Mimi mfaransa lakini kila mwaka ninakaa zanzibar kidogo kwa utafiti na kwasababu ninapendan sana watu wa zanzibar. I am happy to know that web site. Nimefurahi sana kwasababu ninapenda kupata habari za zanzibar nilipokaa Ufaransa. Qawaida siyo rahisi, laikini sasa nitatazama website yako kila weeki ! Ninafanya utafiti ya geografia kuhusu zanzibar. itanisaida. Ninashukuru sana. Baadaye ! MAilys
I LOVE THIS SITE SO KEEP IT UP. UZOAGBA KWENU.UZOGBA.
Nimefurahi kuona sasa zanzibar tuna gazeti letu.nawapongeza wahusika wote. Nilizaliwa zanzibar na sasa naishi ulaya.Naikumbuka zanzibar yetu chini ya marehemu A A Karume,kama kiongozi yeyote yule yapo mabaya na mazuri aliyoyatenda.Zanzibar ilikuwa njema,nyuso za wazanzibar zilijaa furaha,makazi ya wananchi yalikuwa yanaendelezwa kila siku,viwanja vya watoto unguja na pemba.leo zanzibar ni sehemu ya ufukara,mauaji,wizi,uchafu,magonjwa nk. Wazanzibar tuamke,tuungane turudi katika uzanzibar kwa ajili ya vizazi vijavyo. Juma,USA.
asante sana for the memories - jim
mimi ninaikumbuka sana haluwa iliyokuwa ikifanywa na mmanga pale chake chake, pemba na boko boko pale karibu na sultana sinema
Absolutely brilliant! Get lots more photos in there. My father and my grand father were both born in Zanzibar. It's Paradise found! DD
i have know may about my moatherland (Zanzibar)thanks a lot.
A most interesting web page. Very well dsigned, and full of old photographs. It makes a visit to Zanzibar something desirable. Congratulations to the designer and the organization behind the page.
I surfed in to find the proper spelling of "Okello" and ended up staying an hour. Thanks for the great website. Phil in Los Angeles
TWO HOURS I'VE SPENT HERE AND I HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED. WILL HAVE TO SPEND TIME TO REALLY SAVOUR THE HISTORY OF MY BIRTH PLACE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, AND ALL THE BEST awni alidina - DUBAI -
As the descendant of former slaves in the Americas many of us here were taught that all of us came from the West Coast of Africa. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It is pictures like those seen at the website below of slave woman in Zanzibar which tell me otherwise. Those faces look like most women in my family. The information on your website substantiates the Arab,African, East Indian, and European presence on this strategic East African country. Although tourism is scarce there now I can still see Zanzibar being primed in for further exploitation by the same peoples who benefited most from the slave trade. I would love to visit the "Spice Islands"someday and look at those same faces I see in America everyday. I see from the comments that many Zanzibari's live abroad. What is the predominate language in Zanzibar? KiSwahili? Arabic? Here is the website I was referring to. http://home.globalfrontiers.com/Zanzibar/working%20women%201875.jpg Jelpo@AOL.COM
As a Goan from Zanzibar I have enjoyed my brief visit to your website and have indulged briefly in the nostalgia generated. I hope to return again when time permits. There were many more prominent and influential Zanzibar Goans who could feature - individuals (e.g. John Baptist Da Silva)and groups, such as tailors, who offered such a first class service, almost singularly, professional people and civil servants. In time I hope you will develop this aspect of your website. With good wishes, Francis de Lima firstname.lastname@example.org
VERY INFORMATIVE & WELL ILLUSTRATED. I DID VISIT UNGUJA SOMETIME AFTER THE REVOLUTION. PLYED BY SS JAMHURI WHICH COMMENCED FROM TANGA >MOMBASA>PEMBA>ZANZIBAR>DAR> LINDI> & THEN TO MY FINAL DESTINATION MTWARA TO VISIT MY MATERNAL UNCLE. WE STOPPED OVER FOR 4 DAYS IN ZANZIBAR, I STAYED WITH MY COUSIN AMBROSE LEWIS & WAS ALSO A GUEST OF MR. PINTO WHO WAS THE CHEF ON SS JAMHURI. I REMEMBER VISITING THE BET EL AJAIB ONE OF YOUR PICTURES TRIGGERED MY MEMORY. THANKS AGAIN FOR THESE SUPER WEB PAGES & BEST OF LUCK IN YOUR FUTURE OUTPUT. LAWRENCE OF TANGA
Nice website. I however see no reference to the Pereira family..Irene Pereira, Yvonne, Ignatius & Morris. Yvonne's husband Wolfe - who was attorney general in Zanzibar.
I enjoyed reading all about Zanzibar. I visited only once in the early 80's and loved the place very much. Nice work! Sylvia Affonso, Mississauga, Canada.
what happened with so-called Field Marshall John Okello?Did he died or was he killed?
Thank you for taking the time and putting the effort to create this website. I enjoyed the old pictures the most. I have some old pictures and info about older Goans that you might be able to add to this website. Joanita Gonsalves Birkmeyer Chicago, IL
My dear, there are more than six famous zanzibari! there was Juma Udongo, the first zanzibari actor who worked with the legendry Victor Mature, there was of course Farouk Bulsara (Freddie Mercury) international pop personality, and of course there is Farouque Abdela an international fashion designer who worked amonght the likes of Iman, Donna Karan and Chrisitan Lacroix.
I wonder how a family can immigrate to Zanzibar. Where can I get information ? _gas_ @ukr.net
Hi Bharghash! An excellent job I must say! This surely took me down memory lanes. I guess you are the same guy in Tr. Virgina's class, Std VI who used to sing THE ISLE OF CAPRI etc. You surely had a great voice. Good job and give us some more. Celsa email@example.com
Tunakushukuru Bwana BARHASH kwakututowa kwenye kiza kwani sisi wengine tulisomeshwa sivyonaniliyoyaona humu nahata wengine wanadiriki kutwambiya UZANZIBARI umeletwa namapinduzi(kinaBARAKA SHAMTE) kumbesiokweli M MUNGU akupe umrimrefu amin ili nawote waliokuwahawajuwi wapate kufaidika tunasema ZANZIBAR YALEO BORAIYO YAUKOLONIIIIIIIIIII A K MASOUD MKUNAZINI ZANZIBAR

WONDERFUL WORK! I WAS BORN IN ZANZIBAR IN 1934 AND LIVED THERE UNTIL THE WINDS OF POLITICAL CHANGE SWEPT OVER THE ISLAND. IT WAS VERY REFRESHING TO GO THROUGH YOUR WEB SITE AND SEE ALL THE OLD LANDMARKS THAT STILL CONTINUE TO SURVIVE AFTER THIRTY-FIVE YEARS OF MY ABSENCE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Born in Zanzibar back in 1959, I was young at that time though did remember some history around the revolution. Information on this site definetely provides more background on the events during that year. Thanks....Karim
Bargash you've done an excellent job, I am proud that I know you,and I am proud to be a Zanzibari,Let's hope that future comments keep politics out, and friendship in.

I have visited Zanzibar (and also Pemba) twice as a tourist from the UK and have a great affection and affiliation for the beautiful islands and their people. I read with concern of the drop in tourist visitors since the 'Terrorist Alert', and the effect it is having on peoples lives. I for one , together with my wife, cannot wait to revisit the islands, and look forward to the day when the situation resolves itself. John & Moira Cellario Manchester, England
I want to know the news of the zanzibarin who is known as Mtumwa Iddi Hamoud . She is at live london and especially I need to know about her-mail address.I need the help from the Tanzania ambassador in london.
MATATIZO! If anyone knows more about this situation please inform me: I understand that the large Italian hotel between Nungwe and kendwa has opened - causing trouble for the villagers with a large pier that goes into the ocean with a planned disco. I understand that the tourist area of Nungwe was burned down and it sounds like the fire was set by the Italians (mafia) trying to get control of this part of the north coast. Does anyone have any information on this???
Hamjambo jamani! Jina langu ni Nikita.Ninaishi katika Russia na ninajifunza lugha ya Kiswahili katika chuo kikuu katika St.Peterburg.Ninapenda utamaduni wa Uswahili na historia na asili visuri katika Tanzania na Zanzibar.Ninataka kujuana mtu wa Uswahili sana.

Ahlan Wasahlan. Ngugu zangu. Kwanza kabisa nakiri unyama uliofanywa kwa watu wasio ha hatia katika mapinduzi yanayodaiwa ni matukufu pili iwepo jitihada za makusudi kuelewesha watu kuhusu Mass grave na lipo wapi kisha kuangalia uwezekano wa kupeleka ktika mahakama ya kimataifa na kufukua masalio ya waliodhulumiwa na kuwapeleka mahakamai wote wanaohusika mimi abubakar A. Shani email@example.com nipo america
website hii inafaa waelimishwe wazanzibar waiangalie kwa makini nafikiria wengi wetu hatujabatika kuina hivyo kuwe na jitihada za makusudi kuelimisha pili nikuomba UN kufuatilia mass grave na kufukuwa masalio na wahusika waende mahakamani
The website looks great as usual. I'd not visited since before the addition of the page about Zanzibari women (which you had mentioned you were working on in an email inquiry I'd made some time ago). The new additions to the site are wonderful. I'll be back soon. In the meantime, I wish peace and good fortune to Zanzibar and all its people!

Hi My name is Tasneem (Shamim). I was born and raised on the Island of Zanzibar. I went to Tumekuja School, in Zanzibar. For the last 11 years I have lived in England but I regularly visit my parents in Zanzibar. It is a beautiful island and a wonderful place to live in. I really miss my life there and friends. The local people are friendly and very welcoming. I still haven't found all of my classmates and friends. But I won't give up. "EAST 2 WEST, ZANZIBAR IS THE BEST"!!!!!!!!!!! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to recieve any emails from my friends. Bye for now, Tasneem.

Hi, Mr Bargash, Today is the 39th Year of Mapunduzi & was fortunate to stumble on this wonderful web site of Zanzibar History made by you. I was born in Zanzibar & went through the revolution days before I moved to UK. I am now in Zanzibar & have started an Internet Cafe of my own. My family owned a bakery called, Africa Bakery if any Zanzibarian can remember, we still own it but have rented it out at present. I do remember a lot of people who lived here & would like to hear from Zanzibarians. Keep up your good work & pour in some more history as you get it. All the best for now. From, Alaric De Souza. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

A very good and nostalgic site.. Zanzibar is no more the Zanzibar that was..so sad..to see it is now infested with so called "Tourists" who r ruining the traditional zanzibari culture. Gone r the days when you could roam freely in the narrow streets without any fear of being mugged. Anyway it is nice to see someone preserving the memories of ZNZ.. Keep it up BARGASH....
