Bishop accuses Z’bar govt of failing to protect clerics

In Feb 17 – Gunmen shot dead a Catholic priest outside his church in the capital of Zanzibar on Sunday, the second such attack on the Muslim-majority island in recent months.

Father Evarist Mushi was blocked by two young men at the entrance of the church, one of the attackers shot him in the head.

The Roman Catholic Diocese in Zanzibar on Monday blamed the Zanzibar government for what he termed as inability to protect Christian religious leaders.

The Zanzibar Bishop Augustine Shao told a news conference in Zanzibar that the Church has been reporting evidence on threats issued to the Christian leaders but “all these have fallen on deaf ears”. Bishop Shao said some people had been sending threats and hatred text messages and leaflets but nobody had been arrested in in connection to that.

It's high time the government ensures that constitutional rights are protected especially the right to life.
