There will be heavy deployment of tight security in these countries, ready to break up any festivities and activities on Christmas and new year’s day with the threat of five years in prison as a purnishment.

A few christian foreign diplomats and rescue workers in reserved AU areas carry out the celebration privately and quietly.
