Resort sued for fire damages


It was learned that last week a suit was filed by a beach resort company in the High Court of Dar es Salaam over the fire damage sustained a year ago, when a neighboring resort failed to bring a kitchen fire under control, which then subsequently destroyed the Paradise Holiday Resort before also engulfing the neighboring Oceanic Bay.

The company is claiming some US$3.5 million – over 1.6 million euros and nearly 700 million Tanzania shillings – in compensation for the destruction of their property, ie, buildings and equipment and the loss of business and income since then. Further news will be reported when updates of the case’s hearing will become available.
