Tuesday 2

The Tanzanian media are dominated by Muslims. There are 26 television stations, of which eight are owned by Christians. There are 125 radio stations, of which 38 are owned by Christians. Eleven applications to register radio stations in Muslim-majority parts of the country were refused by Dr Ally Yah’ya Simba, the Muslim director of the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA), apparently just because they were Christian-owned, Dr Simba has recently been removed from office but the government minister who oversees the TCRA remains a radical Muslim who has made some worrying anti-Christian statements. Pray that the voice of Christians will not be suppresses in this Christian -majority country.
