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.

A FORMER secretary for the Aga Khan has won the first round of her employment dispute and the judge involved has heavily criticised her employers saying they tried to ``hoodwink'' the High Court.
Mr Justice Declan Budd awarded costs totalling over £250,000 against the Aga Khan's bloodstock company, Stud Societe Civile de Paris, in favour of Kildare woman Mary Charlton (54) who had been secretary of the company's four Irish studs for 27 years.
