Abstract

MWAMBA, Musonda Trevor Selwyn. Law and religion in Africa: Living expressions and channels of co-operation. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.1, pp. 69-77. ISSN 1609-073X.

Drawing on Anglo-American legal and literary classics and the contemporary situation of Africa, this article discusses the unity of law and religion, the demand for justice, the importance of context, the power of law and religion as living expressions of a people's humanity, and the centrality of the moral agent. It concludes with observations about the need to nurture spirituality and morality in Africa in order to strengthen both legal and religious norms.
