Uyui: Despite the distance some of Tanga Streets resemble Tabora


For those who have visited the two Regions, there are some similarities in some of areas. We are not and definitely will not be history teachers, but we have learned some few. Both are historical towns down the lane since and even beyond Germany’s epoch, more precisely on the arrivals of Arabs.  Residents of Tabora and Tanga were used to traveling using Railways, but now its Tabora that still dominated by such kind of transport. Uyui found one street in Tanga to resemble some of the streets in Tabora. We are still finding out the connection between the two towns that distant apart.

Kwa wale waliotembelea mikoa hii miwili wataona kuna mfanano wa baadhi ya mambo. Sisi sio na kwa vyovyote hatutakuwa waalimu wa historia, lakini tumejifunza vitu vichache katika hili. Miji yote hii ni ya kihistoria na unaweza kuiangalia kuanzia enzi za Wajerumani na hata wakati wa ujio wa Waarabu. Wakazi wa Tabora na Tanga walizoea kusafiri kwa gari moshi (treni) lakini kwa sasa ni usafiri huo umebakia kuwa ni njia kuu kwa Tabora. Uyui imeona mtaa mmoja hapo kwenye picha ambao unafanana na baadhi ya mitaa ya Tabora na bado tunaendelea kuangalia uhusiano uliopo kati ya miji hii miwili ambayo imetanganishwa na umbali mrefu zaidi.
