Muslim and Christian Leaders’ Dar-es-Salaam Communique

24 janvier 2023

Muslim and Christian clerics from six East African countries issued a communiqué earlier this month reiterating their resolve to “remain in unity and work with each other as partners in addressing our regional religious, social, economic and political challenges.”

The commitment was the product of a 5-day conference in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania—a gathering funded by TrustAfrica and organized by the Programme for Christian-Muslim Relations in Africa (PROCMURA), a pan-African Christian organisation that promotes peace and peaceful co-existence among Christians, Muslims, and the wider society.

Participants focused on the connections between religion and conflict prevention, conflict management, peace building and reconciliation in the region. Together, they rededicated themselves to remain in solidarity with each other in pursuit of peace, justice and reconciliation and reaffirmed that religious leaders have the utmost responsibility to ensure that justice and peace prevail in the region. They also called on political leaders and economic planners to engage religious figures in a constructive manner.
