TANZANIA: President Calls for Religious Unity in Nation

DAR ES SALAAM NOVEMBER 29, 2016 (CISA)-President John Magufuli has called on religious leaders to embrace love among one another to foster the nations’ development.

President Magufuli said that religious leaders had played a key role in ensuring that the nation achieves her development agenda and therefore should remain united.
