Complaint
TFDA (Tanzania Foods & Drugs Authority) imposes a 1% fees on FOB value on all imports (food, drugs & cosmetics) including the ones coming from Zanzibar which is part of the United Republic of Tanzania. The ZFDB (Zanzibar Food & Drugs Board) does the same thing as they are trained by TFDA. This is badly hurting local and regional trade as well as local manufacturers.
