Christian-Muslim relations in East Africa

Dear Partners and Friends of PROCMURA,

The BBC World Service invited Rev. Dr. Johnson Mbillah to its weekly programme Heart and Soul to deliberate over Christian-Muslim relations in East Africa with a particular focus on the situation in the Sudan and South Sudan. The General Adviser spoke from the BBC’s Nairobi Studio while his fellow discussant Gill Lusk, a renowned journalist from Africa Confidential, and an expert on Sudan  spoke from London studios of the BBC.

The BBC has sent the guide for listening to the broadcast to Dr. Mbillah and it is as follows:

We in PROCMURA are delighted that Dr. Mbillah has been given the opportunity to speak on pertinent issues on Sudan and the Republic of South Sudan and to respond to the many critical questions that were raised.  

We are particularly pleased that it would be possible for many people in the world who are concerned about the situation of Christian-Muslim relations in the two Sudans, and the economic and social development of the newest state (South Sudan) to have the opportunity to listen to PROCMURA’s views on the situation as ably represented by the General Adviser.
