Saint Nyerere?

From Uganda's New Vision

PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni has supported the ongoing campaign in the Catholic Church to have former Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere recognised as a saint.

The campaign to bestow sainthood on Nyerere began on January 26, 2006 when the Vatican accepted a request from the Bishop of Musoma in northern Tanzania to canonise the late leader. The Vatican then granted him the title of ‘Servant of God.’


Prayers for Nyerere’s canonisation, organised by the widow, have been conducted at the Namugongo shrine since 2007.


I wonder what miracles they will attribute to him?
