Zanzibar Diocese at P.O. Box 294, Zanzibar, ZW n/a TZ - Christianity in Zanzibar

Christianity in Zanzibar


While Christianity in Zanzibar can go back historically to the time of the Portuguese explorations, there is very little in the line of buildings to show its existence. In Old Stone Town, a city 500 years old, there are only two Christian churches, located not far from each other, the two cathedrals: one Anglican, the other Roman Catholic. Rather than the evidence of buildings it is the evidence of names in our graveyards and the members of two notable segments of our Christian population today that indicate the roots of the Church in Zanzibar must he traced to Portugal. The oldest segment is that of the Goan community: the other is the Makonde tribe who came here as refugees from Catholic Mozambique, a Portuguese colony.

Part 1 Yesterday's History:

 Ukristu kwenye visiwa vya Zanzibar

Ukristu kwenye visiwa vya Zanzibar kihistoria unaweza kuzungumzwa tangu wavumbuzi wa Kireno wakiwa humu, hata hivyo sio rahisi kupata moja kwa moja mlolongo unaoonyesha hiyo historia. Katika Mji Mkongwe, mji wa miaka mia tano (500), kuna makanisa mawili tuu ya Kikristo, ambayo hayakujengwa mbali sana kutoka moja hadi kanisa lingine. Makanisa haya Makuu Mawili; moja la Kianglikana na lingine la Kikatoliki. Badala ya kuangalia haya makanisa kama ushahidi wa Ukristo mkongwe Zanzibar, ule ushahidi wa majina ya kireno kwenye makaburi na vielelezo vinginevyo vinaonesha kwamba ukristo kwenye visiwa hivi ulikuwepo tangu enzi hizo za wavumbuzi wa kireno. Jumuiya ya ki-Goa inaonesha ukongwe wa ukristo visiwani na watu wenye asili ya kimakonde kama wakimbizi toka Msumbuji ambalo lilikuwa koloni la Wareno
