Tanzania: Aga Khan Development Network to Invest U.S. $1 Billion (Sh1.6 Trillion)in Expansion Plans for Tanzania 2014-08-19Posted August 20th, 2014 by librarian-hd
THE recent visit by His Highness the Aga Khan has opened up Tanzania to greater investments in the economic and social development of the country.
The current Aga Khan, who has been a friend of Tanzania since before independence is a keen follower and partner in the socio-economic development of mostly underdeveloped or developing nations, especially in Africa and Asia. Shah Karim's love for Tanzania has amply been proved by his frequent visits to the country having also attended the Independence celebrations of Tanganyika in 1961.

Zanzibar government has contravened laid down procedures in leasing out two of its Forodhani Beach buildings and a garden to a hotel group for 99 years, it has been confirmed.
Government sources told The Guardian the hotel group, Kempinski signed an agreement with the Isles government in October last year and paid $1.5m, equivalent to 2.1bn/-, an amount said to be a throw-away price for the prime area.
Efforts to speak to the hotel management proved futile. However, sources said the hotel is planning to construct a five star hotel at the site.
