More Than 1,000 Ukrainian Tourists Stranded in Zanzibar

Zanzibar said it is currently accommodating more than 1,000 Ukrainian tourists.

The Zanzibar government on Monday evening said that it was working closely with the Ukrainian embassy in Nairobi to help the stranded tourists.

They are in talks to help them fly to Poland, which is accommodating refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine. The Ukrainian airspace has been closed to all civilian flights following Russia’s military action.

Zanzibar’s Tourism Minister Leila Mohammed Musa said the stranded Ukrainians are being accommodated in various hotels, with some staying free of charge and receiving humanitarian support.

Most of them were scheduled to fly back to their country but due to the war, they are now forced to remain in Zanzibar and some of them are running out of money to pay their bills, the minister added.
