About the Center

The expansion and development of Kiswahili as both, a discipline and a language of wider communication has over the years made impressive strides locally, regionally and globally. This has brought about a number of challenges that deemed necessary to address them. These include among others harmonization of Kiswahili teaching, research, methods and techniques, dissemination of Kiswahili knowledge, Kiswahili programmes, use of ICT and media, collaboration and partnership. In responding with local, regional and global challenges in promoting and advancing Kiswahili, The State University of Zanzibar (SUZA) has recently established the Centre to efficiently deal with them in collaboration with other local, regional and international institutions with a similar interest.
