This post, being a sequel to the previous one, is all about images and voices of and about the one we commemorate today, on the day of his passing from this earthly part of our life to the eternal one. I wish to share some vintage pictures of Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere, my personal ones, an interview with Fr. Andrzej Duda, a former parish priest of Butiama, the native village of Mwalimu and some of English speeches of Nyerere I came across while doing research on Mwalimu (teacher in swahili)...So, here they words...just images and voices...

Servant of God, Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere,

pray for the whole underprivileged world,
pray for all of us!


  1. What a beautiful memory it is!

    I know of a family currently under special novena through the intercession of venerable JK.Nyerere

    May he be our first Tanzanian canonized saint!

    Venerable Nyerere pray for us

  2. Many people pray and claim to obtain graces through his intercession. It is my job to collect their testimonies :)
