Christians in Tanzania

Presidential and parliamentary elections will be held in Tanzania on Sunday 25 October. These come at a time of threat political upheaval after many months of working on a new constitution, which could change the whole religious liberty situation in the country and establish Islam on the Tanzanian mainland in a much firmer way than before. Although Muslims are a minority in Tanzania as a whole, they dominate the senior positions in the government, One church leader wrote to Barnabas Fund: “We are paying that god will give us a Christian to take (Tanzania) back to a place where Christians can walk, carry the Bible, worship, work, do business, vote and be elected freely and safely.” Pray that the election will bring to power Christians who will work to re-establish religious liberty in Tanzania and bring to an end the harassment and persecution Christians.
