BUKOBA Auxiliary Bishop Methodius Kilaini urged Tanzanians to maintain the prevailing peace by promoting understanding among different religions.
He made the call while presiding over mass at the Bukoba Cathedral to mark Christmas celebrations this year. He noted that Christmas should be a turning point for everyone to make retribution and become true children of God.
He warned people to avoid amassing too much wealth at the cost of making others suffer.
He said wealth should be distributed to make life easier for all. Bishop Kilaini called upon Tanzanians to join hands and pray for the country especially for the New Year.
He urged Tanzanians to work harder and fight against evils including abortions, loitering, excessive drinking and to beef up the fight against HIV/AIDS. He also urged residents in the region to give their views to the National Constitutional Review Committee on what they want to be included in the new constitution.
