Nyamanzi City Upgrade: THE INTERSECTION OF PROGRESS AND PRESERVATION

As real estate projects like Nyamanzi City, Domino Tower, Fumba Town, and Fumba Uptown Living redefine Zanzibar’s landscape, hotelier Makame Abdullah envisions state-of-the-art convention centers hosting global summits, tech expos, and industry gatherings. However, concerns arise among critics, questioning whether such progress might compromise the island’s unique identity, fearing the potential loss of pristine beaches and the transformation into a bustling metropolis.

Acknowledging the economic benefits, Makame insists on a sensitive approach, emphasizing the need for sustainable practices, green spaces, and the preservation of historical sites. As Nyamanzi City promises a dawn of new possibilities, the challenge lies in ensuring that progress enhances rather than eclipses Zanzibar’s timeless allure.

“The potential economic benefits are that it will attract investment and foster innovation. The influx of businesses could create a wealth of job opportunities for our youth, raising living standards and diversifying the island’s economy beyond its dependence on tourism,” added Makame.

He, however, cautions that this progress should not come at the cost of Zanzibar’s unique identity.

“The city’s design must be sensitive to the environment and local culture. Sustainable practices, green spaces, and preservation of historical sites are crucial to ensuring that Nyamanzi City complements, rather than clashes, with the island’s existing charm,” he said.
