The Zanzibar tourism industry is dying

The Zanzibar tourism industry is dying

Jul 30, 2014
Although there are existing laws and policies that should protect tourism, the government does not enforce them, and this is slowly but surely killing Zanzibar as a tourism destination.
In other words: The economically important Zanzibar travel and tourism industry is dying.
Due to the global financial crisis, there has been a slow-down in arrivals – something the government has been warned about by tourism stakeholders. The way the government is dealing with this loss of revenue is to raise as well as create new taxes, leaving an already struggling tourism industry being financially strangled. Many tourism companies would have already filed for bankruptcy if not for their directors injecting funds into these companies just to keep them alive.
The Zanzibar government has imposed new airport taxes, new road taxes for tourism vehicles, additional VAT/levy tax on tourism vehicles, and toll taxes to reach certain villages from where some excursions are departing. This is all falling onto a small base of tax payers who have chosen to run their businesses as prescribed by the law.
However, there are larger numbers of beach boys, unlicensed operators, and guest houses who are not tax registered, therefore, no taxes are being collected from their tourism activities.

Exotic Zanzibar

 The Sultan's Palace, now a museum exhibiting memorabilia of the Omani rulers,  is on most visitors' itineraries.

''I landed here 15 years ago and never went back,'' Nora, from Holland, tells me while sipping coffee at a cafe in Zanzibar, the exotic Indian Ocean archipelago 35km from mainland Tanzania.
I can't blame her; I am feeling the same way, after spending just a few days here.
Zanzibar has been luring outsiders to its shores for centuries.
While for early adventurers the attraction was spices and slaves, for the modern generation it is abundant sun, sea and spicy seafood, with the lively legacy of past colonisers an added attraction.
The Arabs were the first foreigners.
They landed about the 8th century AD from present-day Oman and Yemen, started growing spices including cloves and cinnamon and began exporting them to the Arab world.

‘Tunataka muungano wenye heshima’

Bunge la Katiba kabla ya kuahirishwa. Picha na Maktaba 
Na Mwinyi Sadallah, Mwananchi

Posted  Jumapili,Julai27  2014 
KWA UFUPI
Ni Kauli ya Kamati iliyojitwisha zigo la kuwaunganisha wajumbe wa Bunge la Katiba kutoka Zanzibar
Baada ya wabunge wa kundi la Umoja wa Katiba ya Wananchi (Ukawa) upande wa Zanzibar kugomea kushiriki Bunge la Katiba kwa madai ya kukimbia kejeli, matusi na ubaguzi katika  Bunge hilo, taasisi moja ya utafiti na  sera za umma (ZRPP) imeamua kuwaunganisha Wazanzibari ili kufikia lengo la kupata Katiba Mpya ya Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania.
Madhumuni ya kamati hiyo yametajwa kuwa ni kuwaweka pamoja wajumbe wa Bunge la Katiba kutoka Zanzibar, hasa wanaotokana na CCM na CUF pamoja na wajumbe wateule 201 kutoka taasisi na mashirika ya kijamii na dini.
Imeelezwa kuwa nia kuu ni kupata sauti ya pamoja ya wabunge hao kwa ajili ya kutetea na kusimamia masilahi ya Wazanzibari katika uundwaji wa Katiba Mpya.
Katibu wa Kamati hiyo ya wajumbe sita, Muhamed Yussuf Mshamba amesema atahakikisha anafanya kila linalowezekana ili kabla ya kuanza kwa Bunge la Katiba, mwafaka upatikane.
Kauli hiyo ya Yussuf imekuja mara baada ya wajumbe hao sita kukutana na kumteua aliyekuwa Katibu Mkuu wa Ofisi ya Waziri Kiongozi Zanzibar, Ali Abdallah Suleiman kuwa Mwenyekiti wa kamati hiyo.

Zanzibar imeamua kurejesha udikteta?

Muandishi Bwana Salim Said Salim akizungumza kwenye semina moja miaka kidogo nyuma!

Na Salim Said Salim

UTAWALA wa kifashisti na udikteta huwa na sura nyingi  na nyingine  huwa za kuvutia ili kuuhadaa umma (watawala huuona umma kama kundi la mabwege).
Madikteta huwa hawajali wala hawaheshimu haki za binadamu, sheria za kimataifa za utawala bora au utu wa mtu ,haki za mke au mume wala watoto, watu wenye ulemavu, vizuka au mayatima.
Kwao kusema uwongo, kutesa, kujeruhi au hata kuuwa ili kubaki madarakani ili wafurahi na waimbe “ Tunawatesa”  ni mambo ya kawaida.
Hawa madikteka wanapozungumzia amani na utulivu basi ogopa kwani huwa ndio wapo jikoni wanalipika jungu la kukamata watu na kuwafungulia mashitaka bandia.
Wanapoamua kusisitiza umoja na mshikamano ndio huzusha kauli za kibaguzi kama za “Wapemba waende kwao” na kunyanyasa watu na  kuwatangaza wale wanaowakosoa kuwa si raia wa nchi hii kama Tanzania ni mali yao wao peke yao kwa vile chama chao kipo madarakani iwe kwa kwa kura au kwa mbinde.
