The Indestructible Warship: WW1 Beyond the Trenches

100 years ago, she was the fearsome German warship that ruled the waters of Lake Tanganyika; today the MV Liemba runs as the world's oldest passenger ferry. The Goetzen, as she was known then, was sent to East Africa where she defended Germany's colony against the Allied forces during World War One.

As part of a series looking at stories beyond the trenches of Europe, BBC Swahili's Zuhura Yunus travels to Tanzania and takes a journey aboard the indestructible warship.
