Unguja Ukuu

Unguja Ukuu is a small settlement in Unguja (Zanzibar Island). Despite being a small community, it is of historical importance as in the Shirazi Era it was one of the most important Persian settlements in Zanzibar.[1]

A notable person in the history of Unguja Ukuu is Mohammed wa Joka, an ancient land owner that is remembered in several stories and legends belonging to the local oral tradition. According to these legends, he was able to foresee the future and could cast a spell to make Unguja Ukuu invisible. By his magic, he could also identify whoever stole coconuts from his trees.[1]
