Abstract:The Dini ya Misambwa, originally a tribal religious society among the Kitosh and Bagishu tribes on the Kenya-Uganda border, became a sector movement of which the leaders are largely inspired by resentment against the Christian Church and fanatical hatred of all non-Africans, and of the British and African local governments. This sect caused riots, death and arson. Its founder is Elijah Masinde. This article deals with the sect's origin of name, its founder and system, its anti-social nature of teaching, the spread of the movement and the situation in August 1951.
