The team at Gane and Marshall were shocked to hear the recent news of an acid attack on two young British girls working in Zanzibar. Tanzania and Zanzibar are, on the whole, remarkably peaceful destinations, with attacks on tourists very rare, and attacks of the kind described unheard of.
Following news of the attacks, Jeremy Gane was invited to interview on BBC Radio 5 Live (interview at 6:18 mins) and BBC Radio West Midlands (interview at 51:45). Here he discusses Zanzibar’s history, it’s Swahili culture, and the impact of tourism more generally. The interviews can be heard on iPlayer via the attached links.
