Moses Musonga writes: We are looking
at the revival of Pemba Friends Church. The problem in Pemba
after the missionaries from Britain left is that there was no proper
ownership of what was left behind. The Yearly Meeting itself was dying and there was no ownership. Most of the property was therefore abused by some people who were entrusted with leadership. The good side is that the mission properties still bear the ownership of Friends Industrial Mission of Pemba Yearly Meeting.

Friends World Committee for Consultation Africa Section was established in 1971. It maintains links with Friends in West Africa (e.g. Ghana and Nigeria), Central and Southern Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, Congo and Pemba. The first representative conference of the Section was held in 1975 and the first full time secretary was appointed in 1974. Communication within such a wide area is difficult but the Section Newsletter will make a valuable contribution. The Section is involved with several peace and service projects as well as the work of the United Nations Environment and HABITAT programmes including an anti-slavery campaign in Africa.
