A little info about Tongoni:

Tongoni ruins is located about 17km from Tanga City, comprising a mosque and over forty graves. The ruins  are all the remains of a small but prosperous town which peaked shortly after being founded in the 14th and 15th Centuries.

Tongoni contains the largest collection of Shiraz tombs in East Africa and indicates the prosperity it enjoyed before the arrival of the Portuguese disrupted the trading routes on which coastal towns like Tongoni depended. The settlement of Tongoni was mentioned by Vasco da Gama in April 1498 en route to India.
