World Watch Monitor | Nov. 19, 2018

Young Ethiopian Christians are bribed with jobs and education prospects if they convert to Islam, according to the UK-based charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN).

A Christian religious leader who wished to remain anonymous told ACN that Christians who are poor were especially targeted.

“The [Muslim employers] are getting the younger ones – with scholarships, promises for jobs, and so on … Unemployment is at a very high rate in Ethiopia, so this is very attractive to the young people.

“They are told if you want a job you must live like this … You find hundreds or even thousands of young people waiting at the crossroads of towns and villages to see if they can find work,” he said.
