Mwanza. The deputy minister for Communication, Science and Technology, Mr January Makamba, has appealed to clerics in Lake Zone regions to take a leading role in grooming future leaders of the country.

Speaking at a Christmas dinner party hosted by the Great Lake Zone Entertainment here, Mr Makamba said that clerics could contribute immensely to grooming future leaders by giving them vital teachings which prepare them to serve their families, neighbours and other people better and with commitment.
