The member of the Order of Saint Augustine (OSA) who has been assigned the titular see of Perdices has previously served as a Parish Priest, Formator and Secretary of the Tanzanian delegation of the Augustinians.
In his message during the September 21 event, Bishop Mchamungu reached out to members of TEC asking for guidance saying, “The Bishops have experience in this mission as shepherds in the Church. They have welcomed us to their rank by laying hands on us. I ask them to help us as Bishops so that we can work well with them. We are ready to partner with them in this ministry.”
He added, “We ask our leader, the Archbishop of Dar-es-Salaam, to welcome us in our infancy,” Bishop Mchamungu further said, and added, “We promise to cooperate with him as Auxiliary Bishops.”
He called upon the Clergy serving in Dar-es-Salaam Archdiocese to foster collaborate saying, “I ask for your cooperation. The Bishop's work will be easier if Priests cooperate.”
The newly ordained Bishop also reached out to the people of God, seeking for spiritual solidarity “so that we may live up to the oath.”

“Pray for me so that I may be faithful to the Church and to the Holy Father, so that I may fulfill the responsibilities as a Bishop and also so that I may maintain the unity of the Church and the property of the Church,” Bishop Mchamungu said.
On his part, Bishop Musomba also sought for spiritual solidarity from the people of God.
“You have encouraged us and now we are going to work. And when we go to work, it is not a job of politics, it is a work of service. For that reason, we ask for your prayers,” Bishop Musomba said.
He added, “Praying is not just about kneeling, but also living in a way that will give us the strength and ability to do this apostolic work.”
