From that time he served as an Assistant Parish Priest in Kibondo Parish. By January, 1976 he was transferred to Itaga Seminary in the Archdiocese of Tabora where he served as a formator and Bursar. And by the year 1978 he joined Chang’ombe Teachers College in pursuit of a Diploma in Education, a course that ended in 1979 when he successfully completed and was awarded accordingly.

After the completion of his studies at Chang’ombe College, he joined the military training (JKT) at Msange camp in Tabora according to the national legal requirement of the time. And on 7th September 1980, he was appointed as the Rector of the Itaga Seminary, the apostolate which he rendered faithful until in 1987. There after he went to Jerusalem in Israel for a biblical course and spiritual retreat.

On 10th November 1989, he was appointed by the Holy Father John Paul II to be the Bishop of Kigoma following the untimely death of his predecessor Rt. Rev. Alphonse Nsabi on 16. 08. 1989. He was ordained to the order of Episcopate on 6th January, 1990 in Rome by Pope John Paul II and subsequently installed in Kigoma on 25th February, 1990.

By November 25, 2006, he was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI to be the Archbishop of Tabora and thus transferred. Prior to his transfer he had served the Diocese of Kigoma for 17 year. He was officially installed in Tabora on 28 January the same year.
