Swaziland orders schools to teach only Christianity
Officials have reportedly said that old textbooks are being replaced with new ones that mention only the Bible.
CAPE TOWN - Swaziland’s schools opened for the new academic year on Tuesday under new government orders to teach only Christianity.
It’s a move criticised by opponents as fuelling intolerance of Muslims.
Officials have told AFP that old textbooks are being replaced with new ones that mention only the Bible, and that schools were required to submit a list of qualified religious studies teachers ahead of the start of term.
