A church in Tanzania, Parokia Ya MT. Martin Wa
Porres seems to have something serious against
Manchester United Football Club as the religious
centre has banned its congregation from wearing
the Premier League giants’ jerseys to church
On the church’s signboard on which a large notice
is drawn for their male and female members and
forbidding them from spotting some outfits to
church, an art drawing of Manchester United
jerseys with the logo of the club’s former sponsor,
AON is added.
Other practices that the worship centre does not
want its members to indulge in are tattoos, the
mohawk hair style, mini skirt, armless dress
among others are also listed as prohibited.
Parokia Ya MT. Martin Wa Porres is located in
Mwananyamala, an administrative ward in the
Kinondoni district of the Dar es Salaam Region of
Tanzania and the grouse with Manchester United
might not be unconnected with the ‘Red Devils’
pseudonym of the club.
