Answer ( 1 )

  1. It was called Tanganyika, and this is how the name Tanzania came to existence;   After World War I, Germany was forced to surrender mainland Tanzania to British rule. The mainland (then known as Tanganyika) became independent in 1961 and Zanzibar in 1963. In 1964, Tanganyika and Zanzibar united to form United Republic of Tanzania.
