A tour guide at a Tanzanian game park has been arrested after wrongly translating a tourist’s comments about the country and its people.In a widely circulated video clip, the guide says in Swahili that the tourist wants Tanzanians to stop “complaining” about hunger.

The woman, in fact, says Tanzanians are “fabulously wonderful”.

The guide was arrested on the tourism minister’s order for casting the ministry in a “bad light”, police said.

Tanzania markets itself as The Soul of Africa, and is popular with tourists because of its wildlife and spectacular scenery.
