Fodor's Expert Review Askari Monument

Dar es Salaam Memorial/Monument/Tomb

This bronze statue was erected by the British in 1927 in memory of African troops who died during World War I. (The word askari means "soldier" in Swahili.) It stands on the site of a monument erected by Germany to celebrate its victory here in 1888. That monument stood only five years before being demolished in 1916.
