My paternal grandparents, Aly and Jenabai Nanji, originally from India, lived in Pangani, about 50 kilometres south of Tanga
They ran a retail shop of kapad
They went on to be chalu mukhi/mukhiani of Pangani for life
The German Colonial Handbook 1903 mentions "Mohamed Nanji" as an Indian trader, resident in Pangani in 1903.
