Anger over UK newspaper calling Dar es Salaam a fishing village

fishing

People on Twitter are still criticising British tabloid newspaper Daily Mail for a story published on its website yesterday that described Tanzania’s largest city as a “fishing village of Dar es Salaam”.

The phrasing was used on a story about the visit of English Premier League club Everton to Tanzania.

One person called it “disrespectful and racist”.

The phrasing has been removed from the article that is currently on its website but parts of it has been retained on a picture caption. It says:

“”The Bolassie Fan Club’ has swept through the Tanzanian fishing village on the east coast of the country”.
