Tanzanian Christianas

Tanzanian Christians were delighted when Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda promised to review the government’s decision to table a bill to introduce kadhi (Islamic) courts in the Christian-majority mainland. Such courts have been in existence in the Zanzibar archipelago (98% Muslim) since 1964. But many church leaders who spoke up against the proposed new legislation have been attacked and their churches threatened with closure. Pray for the protection of all who are challenging these development. Tanzania is in the process of formulating a new constitution and the kadhi courts bill was to have been part of that. Pray that the constitution will preserve full religious liberty for all and equality under the law.
