Zanzibar to formalise Shumba Port to bolster ties with Kenya

ZANZIBAR intends to formalize the Shumba Port to remove existing challenges and strengthen ties between the people of Mombasa and Zanzibar.

Second Vice President Hemed Suleiman Abdalla made the remarks while addressing Kenya’s Kwale County representatives who visited his Vuga Office yesterday.

He said the Zanzibar government will make relations in different sectors—Health, Agriculture, Tourism and Blue Economy continue to thrive for the betterment of people of the two countries.

“Zanzibar is investing heavily in the blue economy due to the fact that the sector involves a large number of people,” he said, noting that the government is determined to ensure that marine resources are wisely explored.

He also said that the Eight-Phase government is working hard to ensure that Zanzibaris get better social services as well as improving their livelihoods.

On security issues, the Second VP urged the Kwale County leaders to continue reminding their people of the need for them to follow the rules and regulations governing migration when getting in and out of the Island. Read
