When it comes to a pre-revolution Zanzibar, Sheikh Riadh Al Busaidi is a walking encyclopaedia. Today he is joining me to chat on the fallen House of Wonders – plus some other iconic buildings in the Stone Town of Zanzibar.
In this episode, the retired Zanzibari diplomat, Mr. Muhammad Yussuf, is joining me to talk about the role of Maridhiano to the image of Zanzibar in geopolitics as well as the role of international community in enhancing the reconciliation.
Zanzibar is not governed by Islamic Laws, but its society is almost 95% Muslim. Logically, we might think that their daily activities would have reflected this reality – dos and donts according to Islamic values and orientations. But where does their political reconciliation stand on this environment? Professor Issa Ziddy from the State University of Zanzibar is joining me in our today’s episode.
