By Lawrence E.Y. Mbogoni.

A Tanzanian Muslim Dr. Hamza Njozi suggested in his book, Mwembechai Killings, that the killings were "a culmination of a long historical conspiracy between the Church and the Government: a twin alliance whose objective has always been to marginalize and oppress Muslims". The author of this timely book explains the rational behind The Cross versus the Crescent. "It was partly because I was dissatisfied with Dr. Ngozi's limited historical context of the crisis that I embarked on my own research. In doing so I was guided by the hope that a broader historical context might help a better understanding of current relations between the two faiths in Tanzania".
