TURK HAJI TAMACHI LATE BEFORE PARTITION HE MIGRATED From
India to Uganda Turk Haji Tamachi was born in 1876 to a farming family in
Dhrub, Kutch. Because of the prevailing droughts, his father Turk Haji
Suleman Khanani ( “Surpanch” -headman of Dhrub) decided to send his eldest
son Haji Tamachi to East Africa in 1887. Haji was only 11 years old.
Initially he worked for a goldsmith in Zanzibar and then joined Sewa Haji
Paroo’s company under the supervision of Allidina Visram, who was the
assistant manager in that firm. Seth Allidina found the young Tamachi to be
honest and hardworking and proposed to him to be his agent in Jinja. Tamachi
joined Alidina Visram’s caravan going to Uganda. There were no roads, the
journey through jungles full of wild animals and waterborne diseases.
Haji Tamachi established Seth’s “duka” in a mud hut on the shores of Lake Victoria across from the present-day Jinja. He and his workers would take their goods on canoes to sell in Jinja and return with produce collected there. Within the year he moved into Jinja itself and set up a “Merikani” cloth tent located on a small hill, present-day site of Barclays Bank. He was the very first Indian to settle in Jinja. His early contributions are reflected in the testimonial of the Assistant Collector dated April 18th 1903. “Tomasi Sulemani” was his common name all over Uganda.
