Tanzania: Pinda Announces April Meeting On Peace, Stability

Religious, political and civil society leaders will meet on April 4th to discuss national security, Tanzanian Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda announced on Wednesday (March 20th).

“The government intends to convene a meeting involving all stakeholders — from political parties, religious organisations and nongovernment organisations — to analyse what is to be done to promote peace and stability in the country,” Pinda said in Vatican City after attending the inauguration of Pope Francis, according to Tanzania’s The Guardian.

Pinda said the government is committed to curbing violence in the country, and has already brought people suspected of committing violence to court.

“Other efforts are still under way and we are yet to arrest other suspects in connection with the murder of Father Evarist Mushi, who was killed in Zanzibar,” Pinda said. Mushi was assassinated in February outside

his church by unknown gunmen.
