Extractions: People Profile The Tswa People Religion: Christianity, Traditional Animism Population: 1,060,000 (1996 estimate) Status: 50% Professed Christianity; 20-25% Evangelical Location: The greatest concentration of Tswa people is in the southern Mozambiquan province of Inhambane. Smaller concentrations live in portions of the provinces of Gaza, Maputo, Manica and Sofala. The Tswa people also live in eastern portions of the Republic of South Africa, and eastern and southern Zimbabwe. International borders were established long after the arrival of these people in this area of Africa. There are basically no significant concentrations of Tswa people living in Mozambique north of the Zambezi River, which more or less divides the country in two. The capital city of Maputo is now home to quite a few Tswa people as well, despite the major people group of the city being people of the Ronga group. Identity: The name of this people in their language is Vatswa. The singular form is Mutswa. They are often referred to, especially by outsiders, as Tswa, following the patterns of English grammar. The Tswa people are part of a larger language/people group called the Tsonga (Vatsonga). The Tsonga encompass three sub-groups: the Ronga, Tswa and Tsonga (Shangaan). These three groups are very similar in practically every respect. They originated from the same indigenous Bantu peoples who came down from the north to inhabit much of what is now called southern Mozambique and portions of several bordering countries.

Extractions: Search Help Introduction The purpose of this article is to examine the relationship between animism and water. Animism can be defined as either "the belief that natural objects, natural phenomena and the universe itself possess souls, or the belief that natural objects have souls that may exist apart from their material bodies ." Viewed in such terms, animistic religions accord water a supernatural life force. The manner in which it visualises this life force is dependent upon the specific beliefs of the people in relation to the environment that they inhabit. The range of examples for this article is not limited to one continent, but as is the case with animism, will take into account relevant beliefs from different geographical locations. Animistic religion may lead to the belief in specific water spirits, or the water itself may even be imbued with supernatural qualities, qualities which prove to be enduring despite supercedence by Islamic or Christian religion. In some cases, the influences of animism may lead to attempts to make rain, usually through the use of "medicines" to either create rain clouds or act as a supplication to a supreme being with the power to grant the needed rain. As there is a large scope for study, there will be an attempt to highlight common features that will allow comparison between animistic religions and their relevance to water.

At the peak of its power it reached as far south as present-day Zimbabwe (Rhodesia). During the late 18th century the kingdom declined as a result of warfare and internal conflicts. In 1859, David LIVINGSTONE, the British explorer, visited the area, and this paved the way for the arrival of British and Scottish settlers. In 1891 the British protectorate of Nyasaland was created. In 1953, Nyasaland became part of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. Internal opposition to the federation led to the birth of a nationalist movement. In 1963 the federation was dissolved, and in 1964 the independent nation of Malawi was declared.

Extractions: Journal of Theology for Southern Africa 99 (November 1997) Doing Theology with a New Historiography Kenneth R. Ross Department of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Malawi The scandal of the two Africas The emergence of a new historiography Given the imperative for theology to be earthed in history, it is of great importance to observe that a new church historiography has begun to emerge. It has been established that the greater part of the literature on Christianity in Africa has been written by European missionaries. However sympathetic they might be with African life and culture, these inevitably are conditioned by a Eurocentric perspective. African scholars play the central role in this process and, happily, many of the restrictions which hampered the production of African historical literature in the colonial and early post-independence periods, have now fallen away. of minority or subjugated ethnic groups, and of critics of Christian expansion such as Muslims and practitioners of African traditional religion. All of this gives rise to a church historiography that is much more diverse, contested, indigenous, and contextual than anything available in the past.

Travel Tips M A L A W I "The warm heart of Africa" is how the friendly people of Malawi like to describe their small, landlocked country that lies almost in the middle of the great African continent. The mountains, plateaus, rain forests and rivers of Malawi share space with the Lake Malawi, a beautiful inland lake lying in a deep trough created by the Great Rift Valley stretching for some 500km down the eastern border of Malawi. The area surrounding the Lake is given over to neatly laid out tea and tobacco plantations juxtaposed with lush rain forests, evergreen woods and grasslands where conservation areas protect the native habitats of rare wildflowers, orchids, birds and animals.

Mozambique Time and Date Mozambique People Back to Top Mozambique had an estimated population of 19,371,057 in 2001, giving the country an average density of 24 persons per sq km (63 per sq mi). Despite a dozen years of civil war, the country doubled its population between 1970 and 1998. Many people fled to cities during the war, but the population of Mozambique remains overwhelmingly rural. Mozambique's major ethnic groups encompass numerous subgroups with diverse languages, dialects, cultures, and histories. Many are linked to similar ethnic groups living in inland countries. The north-central provinces of Zambezia and Nampula are the most populous, with about 45% of the population. The estimated 4 million Makua are the dominant group in the northern part of the countrythe Sena and Ndau are prominent in the Zambezi valley, and the Tsonga and Shangaan dominate in southern Mozambique. Despite the influence of Islamic coastal traders and European colonizers, the people of Mozambique have largely retained an indigenous culture based on smallscale agriculture. Mozambique's most highly developed art forms have been wood sculpture, for which the Makonde in northern Mozambique are particularly renowned, and dance. The middle and upper classes continue to be heavily influenced by the Portuguese colonial and linguistic heritage. During the colonial era, Christian missionaries were active in Mozambique, and many foreign clergy remain in the country. According to the national census, about 20%-30% of the population is Christian, 15%-20% is Muslim, and the remainder adheres to traditional beliefs.
