After Compliments & Dear All;

The 55th Anniversary of The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution!

Celebrating the First Murderous Ethnic Cleansing in Africa!

Against a duly elected Government under the so-called British Colonialists Protectors!

The Bloody Massacres of Fellow (Arab Asians) Muslims by Africans mainly supported by (few) Christian as led and behind the scene supporters – both local and external including Zionists and Western – and others!

So sad and tragic!

********************

Today 12th January, 2019  is the 55th Anniversary of the Bloody Zanzibar Revolution that saw the massacres of mainly Omani Arab Asians in Zanzibar and the violent overthrow of duly elected establishment by democratic election means – even if there were gross mistakes and miscalculations by that Government during its short period of existence!

Writing The Book!

I am on my way writing my 56th Book entitled Return To Lost Paradise! This is after my recent visit to Zanzibar in August 2018 and my only second visit after The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution of January 12 1964!

The Later Part of The Book will be about The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution – its impacts, consequences and The Aftermath – and my Observations from my visit and what I saw in Zanzibar inter alia the following –

• The Zanzibari (African/Muslim) Taxi Driver showing us an area saying to us – This is where the Arabs Live now – an area where Arabs (Omanis) have come back to build new villas and many staying there after Retirement and or Businesses Closures! He has just forgotten that his passengers were Arabs (Omanis) in his emotions showing you the place!
• The Hotel Staff – mainly Christian Mainlanders – who can be ‘friendly normal people’ because you respect them and perhaps some may say cynically ‘because you tipped them right!’
• Some of the Zanzibaris Africans admitting ‘they survive on handouts from the same people we killed in 1964 – who now make our lives more easier and comfortable – especially during the Holy Month of Ramadhan Fasting!
• Arabs who have contributed to The Development and Expansion of Zanzibar – like the Hotel Verde Resort – The Bakhressa Group of Companies!
• Omani Entrepreneurs doing preferred business in Zanzibar despite all odds – like incompetence, maladministration, bribery. Corruption, lack of trust and faith – and the likes!
• Despite The President Orders – people still ask for tips – not only insinuate – but actual ask – including The Traffic Cop – who asked me – Are we going to talk or not?
I value my life and freedom – so Í talked’- the first time in my life anyway to a person in uniform! I have seen videos of repercussions – and did not want to make myself a victim of Viral Video!
• Army Practising (New Recruits) harassing an Arab Lady who took photograph of them in practise – but were smiling cheerful to Europeans Ladies – even trying to look pretty on the pictures!
• That is the same way as it is said – The British et al did not Protect The Rest of us at and during The Bloody Revolution! The First Ethnic Cleansing in Africa!
• The Visiting so many Arab Delegations from Oman and Other Countries!
• Those so-called Arab Socialists – Comrades – Communist Socialism Sympathisers who all went to live abroad – especially in UK – the same place that The Zanzibar Ruler now also lives – what a coincidence! Or Karma does work?
• Taking a theme focus outlook to try to repair modify adjust etc. based on Nelson Mandela’s South African Reconciliation between Africans and Whites!
• Majority of Zanzibar peoples are Muslims – and to bring in people together as Muslims – and to look forward in The Future – rather than The Past – where mistakes lay on both sides – and stemming from My Book – Psychology of Arab Management Thinking! – which won The USA Gold Seal of Literary Excellence USA Review of Books – Amazon USA.
• Arabs building Masjids and Islamic Quran Learning Centres – despite some even whose families were killed, harassed etc. in The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution!

Zanzibar Hospitality sector being dominated by mainly Mainlanders and Christian – fewer Zanzibar grown!

Backpack (White) Tourists after Zanzibar men (including Masai – I saw even a Masai women in a possible three tie-up!

Housemaids etc. being appointed for the jobs in Oman GCC in the very same stock houses that were killed in cold blood!

The eBook – Revolution in Zanzibar – by John Okello!

As I had always thought the Africans and not even The Comrades alone planned the bloody Revolution but greater forces at play of our so called British Protectors but more some hidden elements who led behind the scene all the toppling of a legitimate government even if badly managed and focussed.

The book reveals it very clearly .. QED

I stopped reading the book at page 119 when he damns indicts himself by saying

I felt that many of the Zanzibar Africans could not be trusted since they were strongly connected with, and even related to the Arabs on the island and might well be spies and preparing to reveal our plans in order to get permission from the Arab Commanding Officers.

He then authorises to KILL ALL ARABS from age 18 to 55

In the end All Arabs sighted were killed … and women rapped ..killed with their babies born or still not born

He prophesies what will happen to him after the Revolution … but sadly he did not do so when he joked to Iddi Amin consorts that Uganda had now two Field Marshalls … his own epitaph of the lies he webs!

Anyway let the Zanzibari people wake up to the realities of the first ethnic cleansing in Africa .. the massacres and cold blooded killings?

Was the Revolution a success? Certainly not now with CUF and the desire to secede and to separate.

And disenchantments and disfranchisements even amongst the Strongest Supporters – internally and externally – and even behind the scenes to this very day!

Added Note!

The Western Media were more apologetic thinking it will curb Arabism and Islamic influence – it ended with the country turning extreme Socialist (Communist!) under a so-called Christian Catholic President (Union) – and the visit of Chou En Lai The Chinese Communist Regime leader to the islands – and Cubans and Che Guevara!

The LOSERS were everyone – including behind the scenes supporters of violent overthrow of a democratically elected Government under the so-called British Protectorate! And constitutional Sultan being Arab! So sad and tragic!

The 50th Anniversary of The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution!

The 50th Anniversary of The Bloody Zanzibar Revolution!

Today 12th January 2014 is the Fiftieth Year since the bloody ethnic cleansing Revolution in Zanzibar – and that is also full of deceit, double dealings, betrayals and letdowns!  

On the morning of Sunday January 12th 1964 – we heard shots from the suburbs family rented house that we were staying in MwembeTanga Mapembeyaani in Zanzibar. My late Mother had this very strong intuition – May Allah Bless her and my father – and all the parents – for eternal peace and the highest of heavens – for my late Father to come in! He was chatting with our neighbour who was in all aspects a full fledged local African – near a Telephone booth.

My late Mother told me – tell your father to come inside NOW! So I shouted to him. Lucky for him he heeded the call and came in. A few minutes later – these Africans neighbours of ours lay dying – after being fatally shot by some rogue elements (fellow Africans too!) They were randomly shooting at everything and at everybody!

That morning my brother and I had an argument. So he tore at the picture of a Chicken Cock I had put up! That weird action saved our lives – because all those houses that had this picture – representing the Ruling Party were butchered in their homes… Read on!

Short Takes Two – Between Us Only! 

***Aged 14 – 12th January 1964*** 

The shot rang out! They have killed my son, the Mother cried out to the rest of the Family huddled inside. Everybody was crying! We have lost our son, the Mother cried to the Father. The shot rang out again. It was all quiet outside the house, nobody knew what was happening. The one who said he was a Police Official and had lost his job – because of you peoples – had taken the boy outside. I want your eldest son, pointing his pistol at the family. I want to ask him some questions.

When a loaded pistol is pointed at you, there is hardly anything you can do, even if you are many. Besides, this was a new experience the family had never met before. An armed man who comes into your house, and wanting to kill someone because you come from that group of peoples who had made him lose his Sergeant job – though he was not an Islander, but came from the Mainland. From even a different country for that matter. And another faith too!

Like they say, what goes around comes around! If you do good things to peoples as part of your family’s focus and aspirations, you will be recognized – and good things will come back to you. The other armed men were now shouting to the Ex Police Man, what are you doing to the boy? They are innocent peoples, they respect everyone. Besides, they just came to this place. Leave him alone. They were pointing guns at him. Give us your pistol, they said to the man. The man gave it up unwillingly. They hit him by the butt of the rifle. He fell down. Now run they told him – or we shall shoot you next. Like also in each basket, there are good and bad fish or fruits – take your pick!

Your son is alive – the men told the family – Do not cry! He shot at him, but he missed him! It is God’s wish to send us to save you all. You need to come with us, to come to the refugee centre. This town on the outskirts are no longer safe for you peoples. The boy went in, they all hugged him – including his younger brother who was always picking fights with him, trying to undercut him being the leader of the pack! 

***Now – 7th June 2009**

Now – I was watching this film. Just a few days before my birthday two days back. The bullied man was saying to the ‘stronger man’. I do not care, you know what? I am happy as what I am. As I am. You think you are better than me? No, you are not. I know what I am, I do not need to think of who I am. I am proud of myself. I know my strengths and my power points, my shortfalls – and whatever you want to say about me. Do not expect me to be like you, and follow you? You think you have won? That you are master of your fate? No, you are just kidding yourself. You only think in your mind that you are better than me, but you are not. You cannot create me, nor can you change me. I am what I am – like I said am proud of myself!

I sympathise with the man. I remember that day clearly. When my strongest of the country adversary – not sober and completely not in control of his faculties – said to me – Do you know why I hate you as your boss? Do you know why? I said, No Sir – I do not know why! Then he retorts – what kind of a person are you? Always trying to look good and be nice? Always the Actor? The one who is always after a popularity contest? To impress and show off to peoples. Pretending you do not smoke. You do not drink. You have no other vices? Whom are you trying to kid? I know you well. 15 years ago this was!

And then that call at 2 am at night 15 years ago again. I am going to board my plane now, the expatriate British man said. Please M – Do Not Change! Remain as you are. Follow your ethics and principles in life. Your focus. You think you have lost? No, you have won. You are far better than all the rest of all the competition to you put together, including even the top ones. They wish secretly they were like you, but cannot be. You care and feel for people. They know it, and cannot accept it. I can tell you now – one I am not sober, and two I am leaving your country forever. I respect and esteem you a lot, forever you will be on the top of my honours and respectable list. Please don’t change!

5 years ago in that other place, it was the Messengers of the place (from another country).Always the lower echelon who felt more. Two weeks ago in my own country, as I was leaving the place, one of the Expatriate Directors came to my room – he caught my hand and kissed it. He hugged me tightly! He then said almost the same very things to me. He was sad and desolate that I was leaving so soon.

I still have it in me – to touch everyone in one way or the other! That is me, and will never change. Hate me – like me – that is M for you!
