How Tanzanian domestic workers are 'enslaved' in Oman!

  • “IF you want to go back (home), you have to pay back the money we spent to bring you here.”

“Atiya Z.” (not her real name) and I were sitting under a veranda, shaded from the hot sun in Dar es Salaam, the commercial capital of Tanzania, when she recounted the words that sealed her fate. Atiya told me that in June 2015 she had travelled from her village in Kondowa to Oman for a job as a domestic worker to earn enough money to start a new line of business “for a better life” for her and her six-year-old daughter.

But when she arrived, her employer confiscated her passport and phone, forced her to work 21 hours a day with no rest and no day off; did not allow her to eat food without permission; and beat her every day. After three weeks of enduring this nightmare she tried to flee only for her employer to catch her and bring her back, telling her that the only way she could leave is if she paid them 2 million shillings.

IMF steps up warnings against weakening Tanzanian economy!

  • WORRYING SIGNS - Lower-than-expected revenue collection coupled with a sharp decline of credit to the private sector point to more troubles ahead
THE International Monetary Fund (IMF) has stepped up its warnings against economic slowdown in Tanzania, saying the government needs to take urgent measures to reverse the downward trend.

In its latest statement on the state of Tanzania's economy, the IMF said although the country's gross domestic product (GDP) growth remains strong, other economic indicators paint a gloomy picture.

"Although GDP data point to continued strong growth, other high frequency data suggest a weakening of economic activity," it said yesterday after the conclusion of its Policy Support Instrument (PSI) review for Tanzania.

"Tax revenue collections are lower than expected and credit growth has stagnated reflecting in part banks’ rising non-performing loans (NPLs). There are downside risks to economic growth in the short term stemming from slow budget implementation, a challenging business environment, and private sector concerns about authorities’ enforcement of rules."
