Kamrudin A. Rashid: Wete-Pemba, Tanzania Jamatkhana

Wete-Pemba is in the sister-island of Zanzibar, Tanzania.

Besides Wete-Pemba Jamatkhana there was another Jamatkhana in Chake-Chake, Pemba. These were the two main Jamatkhanas catering for most of the Jamat living in the Island of Pemba. The settlement of the Jamat also included many remote parts of the Island. During the visit to the Island of Pemba on November 18, 1957 Mawlana Hazar Imam graciously gave Deedar to the Jamats by attending both the Wete and Chake-Chake Jamatkhanas.
