Tanzanian Catholic bishops want Julius Nyerere canonised


Catholic bishops in Tanzania have started a process for considering sainthood for the country's founding president, the late Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere.

Church leaders officially launched the cause for canonisation on 21 January with a dawn Mass led by Cardinal Polycarp Pengo in Nyerere's birth place, Butiama parish in the Musoma diocese on the shores of Lake Victoria.
