In the midst of economic crisis, Catholic Bishops in Malawi have attributed this to the retrogressive way of governing by the Tonse Alliance and inconsistent government austerity measures among others.
This has been revealed through the Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) pastoral statement dated 10 October and signed by all the Catholic bishops in Malawi.
The statement has indicated that the Tonse alliance is focusing on internal bickering, jostling for political clout, cronyism, nepotism and selfish political interest.
“The situation is a serious cause of worry as it undermines meaningful development,” reads part of the pastoral statement.
ECM has further called upon the Tonse alliance leadership to collectively guide the people in the attainment of a better Malawi that it preached during the campaign trail.
