SIL 1           Kalombo - Mwanza & Orchestra       Catholicism Centenary

                                                                       Celebrations - Africa Pts 1 & 2

Flemming Harrev in Denmark supplied details of this record, which looks to be a one-off religious record. Despite being issued by a Nairobi-based company, Sempsons International, mention of Mwanza on the label suggests a Tanzanian connection. This suggests to me that it was issued in 1978 to mark the centenary of the arrival in 1878 of the group of proselytising Catholic missionaries led by Father Livinhac who evangelised the west of Tanzania and whose mission spread into Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda and eastern Congo.
