The stadium was the location of a ceremony on 5 February 1977, uniting the Afro-Shirazi Party and the Tanganyika African National Union into the Chama cha Mapinduzi. The flags of the respective parties were raised and lowered for the last time with the flag of the Chama cha Mapinduzi then being raised. Amani Abeid Karume was sworn in as president of Zanzibar on 8 November 2000.
The stadium underwent refurbishment again with Chinese assistance, reopening in 2010.
The annual Revolution Day anniversary celebration at the national level is held at the stadium on 12 January.
