    Dodoma. The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said it does not recognise statistics relating to population of Christians, Moslems and other religions in the country.

    According to the NBS, such statistics were released by various groups and institutions through their internet websites. The bureau's executive director, Dr Albina Chuwa, told the religious leaders at a conference in Dodoma recently that the law recognises NBS as the sole body charged with releasing official statistics in the country.

    The meeting was part of preparations for the national population and settlement census to be carried out in August.

    "The Statistics Act No. 1 of 2002 gives the National Bureau of Statistics the mandate to carry out statistical activities in the country," she said.

    "Therefore, I declare that all statistics relating to population of Christians, Moslems and other religions are not official and the government does not recognise them," Dr Chuwa added.

    However, she said data collection questionnaires for the August census do not include sections on person's religion and tribe.She said the two have been omitted because the government does not use religious beliefs or tribalism as basis for planning for community development. "The NBS, as a government agency, conducts censuses and surveys which yield a wide range of economic, social and demographic statistics," she noted, urging religious leaders to mobilise their followers to participate in the census.
