Description [ correction ]

The Island has been an area for slave and ivory trade, and the town was a large slave port. It has been under Portuguese and Omani Arab rule, and was the second most important trading centre. The town gained municipal status in 1763, and the Portuguese left in 1975. Since the capital district was moved to Port Amelia, the town and Island has been in a slow decline.
