    Zanzibar has new driving licence and number plates

    By WILFRED EDWIN
    THE EAST ARICAN

    Posted Friday, January 9 2009 at 14:43​

    In a move seen by many as an attempt at asserting its sovereignty, Zanzibar is issuing new integrated driving licences and new automotive registration numbers.

    The new driving licence makes the Isles the first country in East Africa to have a drivers' licence with complete personal information including Taxpayer's Identification Number.

    Taxpayers Services and Education Manager at the Zanzibar Revenue Board Rashid Ali Juma told The EastAfrican that the driving licence forms a comprehensive database of integrated personal information.

    Mr Juma said more than 70,000 automotives - motor vehicles, motorcycles and tricycles - have been re-registered with new numbers.

    The new registration system, which kicked off in September last year with the ante "Z101 AAA" is seen as a move to counter mainland Tanzania's decision to re-register its vehicles with new numbers in which the islanders were excluded.

    Zanzibar is already treating motor vehicles with Tanzania mainland registration as foreign, meaning they have to either pay for a foreign permit fees, or apply for the Isles' new numbers.


    The move has affected some 500 out of the about 35,000 vehicles on Zanzibar's roads, according to reports of the recent on-road census jointly conducted by Zanzibar Revenue Board, the Tanzania Revenue Authority and the Road Traffic Police.

    Analysts say Zanzibar's move is aimed at both retaining its identity and furthering sovereignty.

    Motor vehicle registration is not covered in Union affairs under the constitution of the United Republic of Tanzania. The mainland has been treating Zanzibar registered motor vehicles as foreign ones.

    When the mainland embarked on a project to re-register its motor vehicles, it excluded Zanzibar - the argument being that project funds from donors did not include the Isles.

    According to sources, Zanzibar was asked to raise over $500,000 for the countrywide exercise, "but we could not afford such a big amount," said an official.


    However, even after the Isles built itself the capacity to do so, it was difficult to integrate the registration project into the mainlands because the Members of the House of Representatives saw it was unwise to forfeit the identity of "ZNZ" to the Mainland's "T" ante.

    Under the new Zanzibar Registration Act of 2005, any motor vehicle bearing registration numbers other than Zanzibar's is a foreign vehicle.

    At a recent seminar on tax administration, representatives demanded to know why Zanzibar vehicles with "ZNZ" registration were treated as foreign on the mainland.

    According to the Tanzania Revenue Authority, the difficulties in administering vehicle registration between the two sides stem from the differences in tax administration laws.

    As a result, vehicles imported from Zanzibar are subjected to fresh tax assessment.

    At the heart of the problem is the fact that the tax exemption law is not applicable to both parties of the Union. Administration of the Union taxes in Zanzibar is under TRA.

    These are Customs duty, excise duty on imports and income tax. TRA collects the tax and remits it to the Zanzibar government.

    Nawasifu Wanzanzibari kwa kuwa mstari wa mbele katika maendeleo ya Teknolojia na hasa hili suala la vitambulisho. Ni matumaini yangu kuwa wakishaanza tumia vitambulisho vipya vya kupiga kura, hatutakuwa tena na utata au kutumia mabavu kutangaza mshindwa!

    Kuna taarifa zozote kuwa zoezi hili limewagharimu kiasi gani?

    Naomba kujua iwapo magari ya Zanzibar yakiwa bara, yanachukuliwa kama ni magari ya kigeni?

    Hivi mpaka leo hii 2009 bado sababu za Muungano ni the same na za 1964? Hata ulaya mashariki baada ya wimbi la mageuzi nchi nyingi tu zimere tain their sovereignity. Hivyo ni wakati muafaka wa Tanganyika kuwa soverign state separate na Zanzibar as a sovereign state. kama ni ushirika wa kiuchumi sawa lakini mambo kisiasa let tehm be na Tanganyika let it be. Muungano uliobakia naona ni wa kudekezana na kupigiana kura!! Au mpaka tusubiri KOSOVO la Tanzania???? why can't we change kistaarabu? Wazanzibari wanataka wawe soverein the same na Watanganyika. NI MUUNGANO WA CCM oops!

    Haifai yakhe kutowa aibu za watu. Kweli Wazanzibari wako nyuma kwa kila kitu hata ujambazi, mauwaji na uasharti.

    Lakini kwa hili la namba na leseni mambo yako hivi tangu wakati mwa ukoloni, namba na leseni za magari hazijawa sawa kati ya Bara na Zanzibar, pengine kwa vile vitu hivi havina pesa nyingi na ingekuwa vina pesa nyingi vingekwishabatizwa kuwa vya muungano.

    Nawaunga mkono kwa ili kwani kuwa na vitambulisho kutapunguza migogoro mingi kwa upande wa zanzibar na kuwapa uhuru wachache wanaodai kuonewa kila siku hasa kwenye uchaguzi.
    lakini bado watakuwa chini ya tanzania tu kwani namba zao sio tatizo hata mikoa ilikuwa na namba siku za nyuma kama TA- Tanga BK- Kagera MG- Morogoro na mingineyo

    Sio kama magari ya kutoka Zanzibar yanachukuliwa kama ya kigeni, yanachukuliwa kama ndio kwanza yamekuwa imported. Hata ukiomba kibali cha muda hakipatikani. Hata hivyo, gari zinazotoka Kenya na nchi za jirani yanapatiwa vibali vya kutembea barabarani bila ya matatizo yoyte yale, udumu muungano....

    Zanzibar has its own tax organ known as Zanzibar Revenue Authority or ZRB and it is working parallel with Tanzania Revenue Authority
