According to Paolo Taffuri, the coordinator of Radio Maria Africa, officials in Tanzania have not yet found those responsible for the recent death of a local priest.
"When the priest was heading to Mass on Sunday, two men on a motorcycle approached him and shot him in the head, killing him instantly," Taffuri said. "So far no arrests have been made and police are investigating the motive behind the murder."
Father Evarist Mushi was killed on Feb. 17 in Zanzibar. Cardinal Polycarp Pengo will celebrate the funeral Mass for Fr. Mushi at the Zanzibar Cathedral.
Taffuri said that Tanzania "has always been very peaceful" and that people of different faiths living together in harmony has been a strength of the country.
