1/ #ZanzibariLivesMatter:As someone who has closely followed/wrote about the #Zanzibar Question in #Tanzania for 10+ years,I would say the seeds of what is happening now were watered in 2015 after a failure of fully implementing the Zanzibar Accord that worked a bit okay in 2010.
2/ #ZanzibariLivesMatter:At the heart of the #Zanzibar Accord was the realization that ‘Winners Take it All’ is not feasible for such a polarized #polity-it thus enshrined in the #Constitution some sort of a power sharing agreement that somewhat worked in 2010 but failed in 2015.
3/ #ZanzibariLivesMatter:From 2015 virtually all keen #observers of-and key #players in-#Zanzibar knew that 2020 is a ticking bomb,but differed in how to diffuse or preempt it;the ruling party,#CCM,opted to do so by clipping the wings of the then main opposition party there-#CUF.

Bhatias are originally Yaduvanshi Sama dynasty Bhatti Rajputs of Jaisalmer. In 1316 AD, 2000 Bhatia families migrated to Sindh & Punjab. In 14th century Bhatias were agriculturist & fisherman in Sindh.Vallabhacharya made them Vaishnav & vegetarian.They began to wear Janoi-thread.
Around 1350 AD some Bhatia families migrated to Kutch from Sindh. Here they settled in Tera,Vinjan & Kothara towns of Abdasa Taluka of Kutch. In 16th century Bhatias spread from Abdasa Taluka to newly founded Kutch cities Mandvi,Mundra & Anjar and Saurashtra. They became traders.
When Kutch king Khengarji founded Mandvi city in 1581 he invited Sindh big trader Bhatia Topan to Mandvi to develop trade & shipping of port. In 16 century Nagarsheth Bhatia Topan & his castes traders made Mandvi Kutch a major port of west India in middle age.He built Topan lake.

There's been so much hype about #Zanzibar, but at the same time, a few people weren't particularly thrilled. Had to go find out for myself ,so some friends and I planned a trip. What I think? Top rating for beaches, good food, so much to see, history. Read this thread... #Travel
From #DaresSalaam, you have the options of flying or going by ferry to #Zanzibar. On the other hand, you could fly directly there. We spent a few days in Dar, then we went by cost $35 per person for economy and $50 per person for VIP. We travelled in the VIP section.
It takes 1hr30mins to get to Zanzibar by ferry. It could take longer when it's turbulent. The hotel we stayed in was an hour away from stone town. We stayed in Nungwi which is North of Zanzibar. #Travel #Africa #Tanzania #holidays
