This chapter examines the situation and history of Parsis in East Africa, particularly in Zanzibar and Kenya. It suggests that Parsis came to East Africa, first to Zanzibar and then across to the mainland, as part of the network first developed by Sultan Barghash and this was continued by the British between Bombay and the East Coast of Africa. The earliest arrivals were professionals who for a decade grew into a business community.

Keywords:   Parsis, East Africa, Zanzibar, Kenya, Sultan Barghash
