Mafia Island

Three pastors on Tanzania’s Mafia Island were summoned to the District Registration Office bringing with them a list of the  church leaders, their birth certificates, educational certificates, and their churches’ registration documents. Local Christians understood this to be the first steps in implementing a threat from the Minister of Home Affairs, Mathias Chikawe, that churches and Christian organisations who publicly opposed the kadhi courts in the proposed new constitution would be closed down. Pray for an end to the harassment and persecution of Christians who seek to prevent the Islamisation of Tanzania.
