    From MEDDY MULISA, Bukoba, | 21st October 2011 | Daily News

    THE official burial of the late Laurian Cardinal Rugambwa, at the Bukoba Cathedral will be conducted early next year, Auxiliary Bishop Methodius Kilaini has disclosed.

    Auxiliary Bishop Kilaini told the 'Daily News on Saturday' in an exclusive interview that the burial of the late cardinal had been delayed due to major rehabilitation of the Bukoba Cathedral.

    "The rehabilitation and renovation of the Bukoba Cathedral is at final stages. We expect that the body of the late Cardinal Rugambwa would be transferred from Kashozi church early next year," he said.

    Laurian Cardinal Rugambwa, who in 1960 became the first African cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church, died on December 8, 1997 in Dar es Salaam at the age of 85. His body was temporarily laid to rest in a church at Kashozi parish, some 15 kms from Bukoba town.

    His elevation to the College of Cardinals by Pope John XXIII was a signal of the church's recognition of its debt to its non-European clergy, and of the growing importance of the Catholic congregation in parts of the world that had once been the domain of European missionaries.

    Cardinal Rugambwa was an early and active participant in the Second Vatican Council. He also stressed the importance of involving the lay community in the work of the church. "In the missions where separation is a fact of everyday life, we have to be ready to cooperate with non-Catholics in all possible ways.

    The church is neither a museum nor an archive, but a teacher of life," he stressed. Born on July 12, 1912 of an aristocratic family in Bukongo village-Kamachumu, in Muleba district, Laurian Rugambwa was baptized by missionaries when he was eight years old with the rest of his family.

    After attending a seminary in Uganda, he was ordained a priest on December 12, 1943. After working as a missionary in western Africa for several years, he went to Rome in 1948 for higher studies at the Urban University, where he graduated with a doctorate in Canon law.

    He was appointed a bishop in 1951, and upon returning to Tanganyika in 1952, he became the country's first indigenous bishop, serving the diocese of Rutabo. He was elevated to Cardinal by Pope John XXIII on March 28, 1960, becoming the first African cardinal.

    He was appointed Archbishop of Dar es Salaam on December 19, 1968, relinquishing those duties in 1992 when he reached the mandatory retirement age of 80.

    In a condolence message to Polycarp Cardinal Pengo of Dar es Salaam, the late Pope John Paul II described Cardinal Rugambwa as "the first Cardinal among all Africa's children and his close colleague and his predecessors".

    Among his legacy include Rubya and Mugana hospitals, Ntungamo Major Seminary and Rugambwa Girls' High School.

    Kanisa katoliki nchini dayosisi ya Bukoba mkoani Kagera wanajiandaa kuzika masalia kwa upya ya aliyekuwa askofu wa dayosisi hiyo Kardinali Laurean Rugambwa aliyefariki mnamo mwaka 1997 katika kanisa kuu la Bukoba tarehe mwezi Octoba mwaka huu.

    Mwili wa askofu huyo wa kwanza nchini na Kardinali wa kwanza mweusi barani Afrika umezikwa katika kanisa la kwanza mkoani Kagera lililopo Kashozi kutokana na kwamba kanisa kuu la Bukoba ambalo marehemu aliagiza kuzikiwa ndani yake lilikuwa katika matengenezo makubwa

    Akizungumza katika kipindi cha ''Asubuhi Njema'' asubuhi ya leo kinachorushwa na runinga ya Channel 10 ya jijini Dar es salaam, askofu mkuu wa jimbo la Bukoba Methodius Kilaini amesema wanataka kumzika kardinali Rugambwa kwa heshima tena katika kanisa alilopenda kuzikiwa kutokana na kukamilika kwake, lakini kabla ya kuzikwa humo kutatanguliwa na ibada mbalimbali ikiwa sehemu alikozaliwa, alikobatizwa pia watasherehekea miaka 100 ya kuzaliwa kwa kardinali Rugambwa tarehe 7 mwezi Octoba.

    Marehemu Kardinali Rugambwa ana mambo mengi ya kukumbukwa na jamii ya watanzania hususani watu wa mkoa wa Kagera hasa kwa juhudi zake za kupeleka elimu mkoani humo kwa kuagiza ujengwaji wa shule za msingi na sekondari ikiwemo shule ya kwanza ya wasichana ya Rugambwa ambayo ujenzi wake ilikuwa mafanikio ya marehemu huyo kuomba msaada wa ujenzi wa shule hiyo alipohutubia bunge la Ujerumani akiwa mwafrika wa kwanza.

    Licha ya mambo hayo yote kanisa hilo pia liko mbioni kuanzisha mfuko rasmi wa kumuenzi kardinali huyo mfuko ambao utakuwa maalumu kwa ajili ya kufanya shughuli mbalimbali za kijamii.
