[Tanzania, ACNS] Bishop Maimbo Mndolwa of the Diocese of Tanga has been elected as the next Archbishop and Primate of the Anglican Church of Tanzania. He will succeed Archbishop Jacob Erasto Chimeledya, who will retire in May. The election took place yesterday (Thursday) during a special Synod of the province. When he is enthroned, on 20 May, he will become the seventh primate of Tanzania.

“The Archbishop-elect told the synod, members of the Anglican Church of Tanzania, Anglicans worldwide and the general public that he has accepted the result of this election in humblness and humility,” the Revd Canon Dr Mecka Ogunde, the province’s general secretary said. “He promised to work wholeheartedly for the benefit of the community and the Church as a whole.

“On his final blessings after the election, the Archbishop- elect insisted on peace, unity and listening to the voice of God in our lives.”

We hope to have more details on Archbishop-elect Maimbo Mndolwa next week.
