After viewing the clip, Tourism Minister Jumanne Mshembe ordered the arrest the tour guide on unclear charges of mistranslating the words of the tourist.
The cheerful tourist complemented the country but the unnamed guide from the state-run Serengeti National Park in the north claimed the woman said Tanzanians were always complaining about hunger.
According to BBC, the tour guide may have been making fun of Tanzanian president John Magufuli, who last month called on people to stop complaining of starvation.
