The Hanging post in Bagamoyo:
The hanging place of Bagamoyo used to be the location of a big tree where revolters against the 19th century German rule of the area and abolishment of slave trade were hanged, most of whom were supporters of the Abushiri Rebellion. The tree no longer exists, but in its place is a monument built in the 20th century by the government of Tanzania to demarcate its location.
Most of these hangings were done around 1889 (end of the revolt), with most of its victims never being buried, but rather being disposed. Right next to the monument is a well that was built by philanthropist and businessman Sewa Haji Paroo in 1894, at a time when there was a shortage of water in Bagamoyo. This was one of the many that he built in the town, with an aim of making sure that the town’s people had good access to water.
