Prison Island In Zanzibar, Tanzania On February 11, 2009 -
TANZANIA - FEBRUARY 11: Prison island in Zanzibar, Tanzania on February 11, 2009 - Special restriction: Image not available in Bulgaria, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Russia Territories from September 01, 2009 to February 28, 2010. The island, also known as Changuu, was first used by Arab slave merchants to detain slaves, before the British built what was intended as a prison for Stone Town in 1890. The building was never used as a prison as there was no water available on the island! Later it did become a quarantine station for Zanzibar, Kenya, Uganda and what was then Tanganyika.
