Catholic church’s Auxiliary Bishop for Blantyre Archdiocese Montfort Stima and Fr Gervazio Namba were Saturday night rushed to Mwaiwathu Private Hospital following a car accident near Zalewa Road Block.
Bishop Stima is under observation at Intensive Care Unit while Fr Namba is in Kabula ward according to Blantyre Archdiocese communications department.
The department says the two were coming from Mzuzu where they attended the Diamond Jubilee for St Theresa Parish Katete.
Details of the accident were scanty but the department promised to give further details.
“We shall give you more details later. We are busy trying to ensure that all is well,” said Father Alfred Chaima., who is the Secretary to the Archbishop of Blantyre Archdiocese.
Bishop Stima was recently appointed by the diocese consultors as diocesan administrator following the transfer of Archbishop Tarcizio Ziyaye to Lilongwe Archdiocese.
As diocesan administrator, Bishop Stima conducted his first meeting for all priests in the archdiocese on Thursday last week where they discussed the status quo of the archdiocese.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
