Another Hotel Burns Down in Zanzibar, Raising Concerns

In a distressing turn of events, the Unguja Hotel Karibu Beach Resort, located in Pongwe, Central District, South Region, Unguja, has fallen victim to a devastating fire. This incident marks the second occurrence within a month, following the burning down of five other hotels on July 9, 2023, in the South district of the same region.

According to Rashid Hadid Rashid, the Head of the Region, the incident took place on August 3, 2023, in the evening. The fire originated from an electric shock that occurred near the hotel's sheds, quickly spreading to engulf the entire establishment. The strong wind exacerbated the situation, causing the fire to jump and further destroy the hotel.

Reportedly, 15 rooms were severely burnt and damaged, and unfortunately, a guest lost their passport in the blaze. Three out of the five other guests present at the hotel were fortunate to escape unharmed, although their belongings were destroyed. Expressing deep concern, Rashid stated, "It's a sad thing because just last month there was a fire in the Southern District, and today a similar hotel has burned down in the Central District. It's really a sad thing, so we, as a region, have taken action."

In response to these incidents, the region has taken proactive measures to address the recurring fire outbreaks. The Head of the Region emphasized their commitment to preventing such incidents in the future.

Gaudianus Kamugisha, the Police Commander of the region, reported that the fire originated at the reservoir and rapidly spread due to the winds. Authorities are currently assessing the full extent of the damage caused by the fire.

The consecutive hotel fires in Zanzibar have raised concerns among citizens and authorities alike. The incidents highlight the need for enhanced safety measures and improved infrastructure to prevent such devastating occurrences.

In other news, despite the country's abundant water resources, the availability of clean and safe water remains a challenge for many citizens. The issue is particularly prevalent in rural areas, where people often rely on limited quotas or alternative methods to secure their water supply.

Additionally, fuel prices have continued to decrease, with the Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (Ewura) announcing a new pricing structure. Starting tomorrow, petrol will be sold at Sh2,886 per liter, diesel at Sh3,083 per liter, and kerosene at Sh3,275 per liter. These reductions offer a ray of hope amidst challenging economic conditions for the population.

President Samia Suluhu Hassan has also called for international discussions on the innovative challenges faced within the health sector. Recognizing that obstacles hinder progress, she seeks collaboration to address key issues and foster innovation in healthcare.
