"Police officers in Zanzibar..." Tanzania Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Imbri

Tanzania Warnings and Dangers: 48 reviews and 29 photos

Police officers in Zanzibar can be very corrupt. The police force is underpaid, ill-equipped and
poorly trained. You may be approached for bribes. Playing dumb may be the best way to react;
they probably won?t ask you outright for money, and after a while they may get exasperated with
your stupidity and give up.
