Hope for Tanzania

Christians in Tanzania

Added 07 November 2010

Today marks the day when Christians around the world remember their fellow brothers and sisters who are suffering persecution simply because of their religous faith. Life is tough for them and thousands are martyred every year with many more being discriminated against, imprisoned, tortured and deprived of basic human rights. Whilst the situation in Tanzania is relatively calm it is unlikely to remain so for much longer. Already Christians in Zanzibar and the coastal regions, who are in the minority, find life difficult as increasing efforts are made for the islamisation of Zanzibar and the establishment of laws which would prevent Christians from living without fear of reprisals because of their decision to follow Jesus Christ.
