- In Tanga, Esmail Jetha, with brother Salehmohamed, in the late 50s and 60s had a wholesale business which imported products through agencies (i.e. exclusive distributors).
- One interesting fact in our family is that Esmail Jetha (EJ) and Abdullah Jetha (AJ) passed away within 24 hours of each other. EJ died of cancer first; AJ had a heart problem and died the following day. EJ wasn’t aware of the seriousness of AJ’s condition but had a premonition, it is thought, that he would be seeing him soon.
According to the community oral records, Esmail Jetha was Kamadia (Deputy) of the Tanga Khoja Ismaili Jamat between 1910-1917 and Mukhi(Chief) in 1927-1928.
