Pope Francis appoints Tambala new bishop for Zomba Dioece

The Holy Father, Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church, has appointed as the new Bishop of Zomba diocece, the Reverend Father George Desmund Tambala.

Tambala: New bishop of Zomba

Tambala: New bishop of Zomba

Archbishop Thomas Msusa remains in-charge of the diocese until the bishop-elect ‘takes possession of the Episcopal See of Zomba’.

The bishop-designate Tambala belongs to the Order of the Carmelite Discalced (OCD) and becomes the first priest from that Order in the country to be promoted to the high office of a bishop.

The position of bishop of Zomba Diocese fell vacant after Msusa was appointed to head the Archdiocese of Blantyre.

Details of the installation of the new Bishop of Zomba will be announced later by the Apostolic Nunciature in Malawi.

    Many Congratulations to the Bishop Elect, Fr. George. I like the picture that Nyasa times put here. That is how the Bishop Elect appears, almost at all the times. A messenger of Good tidings! Our hierarchy has been blessed with yet another excellent leader. All glory and praise to Him.

    A ‘Tsokankanansi’ the Catholic Chorch is Holy -Kuwala and some other church members of other churches are Mdima. They aren’t happy with Kuwalako so akufuna kuthimitsa kuwalako to introduce darkness that is impossible.
    No matter how dark it can be Light will be light. light chases mdima.
    Ukamva anthu-followers of darkness, akunena nena ndiye kuti alim’mavuto aakulu. Cholinga cha mdima ndi kuthimitsa Kuwala so that Mdima uzilamulira. T
    his will not happen.

    ’31’ kunena kuti Holy chimatanthauza kuti munthu wosankhulidwa. Mawu woti holy ali ndi matanthauzo ambiri mukawerenga dictionary. Pali mawu ngati ‘bala’ amatanthauza chilonda komanso amatanthauza bereka Eg Mtsikanayu wa bala khanda la nthete kapena mwendo wangawu uli ndi bala.
    Holy means ‘Woyera’ komanso ‘Wopatulidwa’. Papa ndi wopatulidwa pokhala mtsogoleri komanso sitingaweruze, timakhulupilira kuti ndi woyera. Holy apa chikutanthauza kuti wosankhidwa. Werengani momwe walembere munthu wodziwa Baibolo pa no ’35’. Sukulu ya baibulo njofunika zedi. Enawa amangoti akaphunzira baibolo zaka ziwiri basi akuti nda abusa. Ndi anthu oterewa omwe amakupombonezani maganizo kikikikikiki

The guy was seen from his youth days that one day awa azakhala ambuye ndithu. Welldone comrade for rising so high in the priestly ladder. You make me fell holy as well mesho. God bless you with abundant wisdom and knowledge as you pastor His flock. Amen

    All Catholics are evil and they pray to false gods bars and idles, shame on them, they pretend not to marry but the so called priests are busy in chigololo giving pregnancies unlawfully and they are the founders of condoms. shame on they and may the Almighty God perish all the Catholics for teaching this fake religion.

  7. Mukatolika ind m'modzi says:

    In the Old Testament the Hebrew Kadosch (holy) meant being separated from the secular or profane, or dedication to God’s service, as Israel was said to be holy because it was the people of God. The holiness of God identified his separation from all evil. And among creatures they are holy by their relation to him. Holiness in creatures is either subjective or objective or both. It is subjective essentially by the possession of divine grace and morally by the practice of virtue. Objective holiness in creatures denotes their exclusive consecration to the service of God: priests by their ordination, religious by their vows, sacred places, vessels, and vestments by the blessing they receive and the sacred purpose for which they are reserved.

    Iwe Khobidi, dont be stupid. You are too small to make such critics. If you worship in the right way, then go ahead and freely practice you religion, but dont poke in other peoples noses. Khala chete. After all we ve known who you are and your denomination. Mukhala chomwecho. Ntchito kutchuka ndi kukwelana mumpingo.

  9. Peter says:

  15. Peter Ibu Lhomwe says:

    I am shocked with all who are attacking the Catholic Church for calling Pope “Holy”. We Catholics call Pope “Holy Father” because he holds a Holy Office created by Jesus Himself. When he appointed St. Peter as head of the Church (Matthew 16:13-20) The first Pope (Father) is therefore St. Peter and the current Pope Francis is number 266 in the line of succession. We use the term “Holy” in a qualified or borrowed sense and not in a strictest sense because only God is Holy. Who doesn’t know that the present Pope is Giorgio Mario Bergoglio? He is a human being born on Argentine parents who migrated from Italy? We all call our male parent “Father” and we also God “Father”. Does this mean our respective fathers are equal in dignity with God?? Some of them are wife battlers some heavy drinkers while others have concubines but they return the title “father”. So please stop attacking the Catholic Church based on your low levels of understanding.

  16. mkatolika weniweni says:

    Amene sanachimwepo andigende mnyala,,coz this is rubbish, its about your relationship with God, not pointing a finger at a catholic, mukusiya zanu zomaphumzitsana malilime,,kumanamizila kuyenda mlengalenga,,,advertising your churches, but you will never hear us attacking you, but you have pushed us the catholics to us you, sin is sin,,,ask your church to letter a pastoral letter, ulaliki ugokhala kuti mulemela ,,dzalani seed,,mupeza banja show us the face of Jesus you Mr. preach the Gospel not kukondweledwa,, banja ,,,kkkkkkk shame, malilime saphunzitsana its a gift. Njoka mumasanduka zija musiyenso. Kodi simukumaulula pompa kuti mukumapita kwa sing’anga ku joni.

    Praise be to God as the Holy Father, the Supreme Pontif, the Successor to the Throne of St Peter, the Vicar of Christ on earth, His Holiness Pope Francis for appointing our own Fr Tambala of the Order of Carmelites Discalced (OCD) to the High Office of Bishop
