Semi-autonomous Zanzibar is investing upwards of USD150 million in the next two years on power projects to alleviate power outages, but also including USD75 million on an undersea cable that will incorporate fibre-optic cables that will connect the island to an international undersea telecoms network. Funding for the project, which will be completed in April and will connect the smaller Pemba island to power from Tanga region in mainland Tanzania, is being sourced from the Norwegian government, a spokesman said.
