ZANZIBAR ISLAND, TANZANIA (Worthy News)– Islamists burned down a church on Zanzibar Island Saturday just three days after another church facility there was reduced to ashes.
“Away with the church: we do not want infidels to spoil our community, especially our children,” Pastor Leonard Massasa said the Islamists shouted as they razed the church to the ground.
Massasa oversees Zanzibar’s Evangelical Assemblies of God-Tanzania churches.
“Tomorrow is Sunday, and my members numbering 40 will not have any place to worship,” said Pastor Paulo Magungu of the Fuoni EAGT church. “We have reported the case to the police station. I hope justice will be done.”
