NATIONAL leaders at different levels have been asked to execute their duties diligently, to enable the country make rapid achievements in development.
Delivering homily at Maxmillian Kolbe Catholic Parish Mwenge in Dar es Salaam over the weekend, Father Innocent Mushi said as the country celebrates 51 year of independence, people should be renewed and start treating others with mutual respect and love.
He said that principally, national leaders are commissioned by God to render services to their fellow human beings, so such heads need to be accountable and responsible before their creator.
"We should examine ourselves and see where we have gone wrong in the last fifteen years, so that as a nation we may correct our mistakes and walk ahead with confidence of building our nation where people may improve their living conditions," he said.
Father Mushi who is the Rector of Maua Seminary in Kilimanjaro region said the nation needs leaders who have the country in their hearts, rightly committed to fight for the common good.
He called upon Christians to examine their hearts during the advent season that prepares them for Christmas, because this feast could only create meaning, if people will change their hearts and live new committed Christian lives.
