Persecution grows in Zanzibar


There is a small  minority of |Christians on the predominantly Muslim island of Zanzibar, still part of Tanzania. Christians are facing increasing g harassment and violence. There is a powerful movement seeking complete autonomy and no-doubt Sharia imposition, the radical Islamists. Muslim oppression is intense. A new constitution is in preparation and recent elections were annulled. Church leaders are expecting riots and violence and much may be levelled at them and their churches. Christians have actually increased in number recently (mainly Pentecostals)-pray for their Reformation, perseverance and loving witness (Barnabas Fund/Operation World)
