  • Mike ,

    This is to bring to your attention that a big quantity of Gold is being smuggled by prominent Zanzibar businessman Naushad Mohamed through Zanzibar airport every week on Saturdays using Kenya airways.

    You may contact airport porter Mr Mgaza and will brief on the mechanism of how this operation is done.
