The UK based online news portal, the Daily Mail Online, is getting criticism for referring the Tanzanian capital, Dar Es Salaam, as a ‘fishing village.’ This reference is filed from their first paragraph of a article about the arrival of the English Premier League football team, Everton, who arrived in the country on Wednesday for a pre-season friendly game with the UK legent Wyne Rooney who was Co welcomed by group of fans in Dar Es Salaam.
The paragraph with the reference read.
Everton touched down in Tanzania ahead of their pre-season friendly, with Wayne Rooney and Co welcomed by hoards of supporters as they arrived in the fishing village of Dar Es Salaam.
The portal was forced to modify the article paragraph by replacing ‘fishing village’ with ‘coastal city.’ The rewritten paragraph read,
Everton touched down in Tanzania ahead of their pre-season friendly, with Wayne Rooney and Co welcomed by hoards of supporters as they arrived in the coastal city of Dare Es Salaam.
