The Bukoba Auxiliary Bishop, Methodius Kilaini

Bishop Kilaini made the appeal during a special mass to commemorate the late Professor Justinian Ferdinand Rweyemamu. Prof. Rweyemamu was born on September 28, 1942 at Katoma village, a few kilometres from Bukoba town, and died on March 30, 1982.

He received his education at Ihungo Sec School (St Thomas More), Fordham, New York and Harvard Universities. He later served in various capacities in the civil service. He was also personal assistant (economic affairs) to the late Father of the Nation, Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere.

Bishop Kilaini described the late Mwalimu Nyerere and Prof. Rweyemamu as living legends who inspired people to work harder and tirelessly assisted their fellow Tanzanians. In another development, hundreds of Bukoba residents participated in a special seminar organized by the Usanifu wa Kiswahili na Ushairi Tanzania (Ukuta).

Kagera Regional Commissioner (RC), Mr Fabian Massawe, said the region had been honoured to host a general meeting of Ukuta to be held in Bukoba Municipality starting on March 30 to April 2, this year. He said various topics involving good usage and the importance of Kiswahili language in communication would be discussed.

Stakeholders aired their views and experiences in promoting Kiswahili. Experts in Kiswahili from the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) also gave their input.
