Archbishop Norbert Mtega of Songea Archdioces Announces His Retiring While at Hanga Abbey

It was on May 15th after midday prayers at the presence of monks and priests of the archdiocese of Songea when the surprising news came. The archbishop was accompanied by the bishop of Iringa a neighboring diocese who now is the administrator of the archdiocese. the breaking of the news was announced at Hanga Abbey because the priests of archdiocese had gathered there for their special seminar in celebrating this year of faith. Thus it was an official and the right group for the news to be announced.
