Kenya is listed at position 49 out of 50, leaving it one step from getting off the list published by US-based Christian organisation, Open Doors.
Although the reclusive North Korea takes the top spot — for the 20th year in a row — Somalia (3), Libya (4), Eritrea (6) and Nigeria (9) make it to the top 10 on the list of ignominy.
Kenya is the only East African country on the list.
The report says that although Christianity is the majority religion in Kenya, that has not stopped the spread of persecution. Particularly, Christians with a Muslim background in the northeast and coastal regions live under constant threat of attack — even from their closest relatives.
