Violence Against Women May Threaten Zanzibar Tourism

Violence against women in Pemba alone goes to 35.6% while in Uganda stands to 17.2 % annual, a move which an analyst believes can threaten the tourism industry if measures to tame the crisis are not taken immediately.

Given the fact that Zanzibar depends much on tourism for its forex earnings, this rapidly increasing violence against women could scare away tourists specifically women, an analyst and tourist guide Juma Mponji said. "We need to break the wall of silence surrounding violence against women," he urged.
