An epoch was marked in Zanzibar on June 18, 2014 with the launch of a book chronicling the media history of the Isles.

The book – A history of Zanzibar Media - Traditions and Transitions written by three Zanzibaris – journalists Mariam Hamdan, Ali Rashid and Lawyer Fatma Amour was launched by the Zanzibar Second Vice President Ambassador Iddi Seif at a colourful ceremony held at the Zanzibar Beach Resort.

“This is a great effort”, Vice President Seif said as he unveiled the ocean the blue covered 230 Page history book blended with gold colours-

He praised the Media Council of Tanzania for making the request made by the Zanzibar President Dr. Ali Mohamed Shein a reality.

Dr. Shein is reportedly to have asked a delegation of the Council headed by the Council’s Executive Secretary Kajubi Mukajanga on March 13, 2012 when it paid a courtesy call on him at the State House in Zanzibar.

He had advised that it would be quite important if the media history in Isles is recorded in form of a book.

Speaking during the launching ceremony,which was attended by a huge number of journalists and media stakeholders, Kajubi confirmed that they had taken the request seriously and with great zeal culminating into the publication of the book.

On his part Vice President Idd challenged the media fraternity to come with another book on media veterans and stalwarts who may serve as role models to practicing and upcoming journalists in the country.

Stressing the importance of history in development, Vice President Iddi advised that the new book should be used as teaching material in journalism training schools.

In his speech, Vice President Idd also hinted that the proposed new legislations on the media are in good progress and that his government will expedite the process to turn them into law.

He also expressed concern in the poor remunerations of journalists pledging that the government would work towards improving them.

The Publications, Research and Documentation Manager of MCT, John Mireny, narrated the entire process culminating to the publication of the book, the first serious attempt to record the history of media in the Isles.

The launching ceremony was accompanied with entertainment from traditional ngoma and taarab groups, puppet show and narration of poetry.
