Bishop Zuza dies after dies after crash in Chikangawa

Chairperson  of the Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) His Grace Bishop Joseph Mukasa Zuza has died in a car accident.

According to confirmed information by ECM, Zuza , who was heading Mzuzu Dioecese, died in a car
accident in Chikangawa in Mzimba as he was going to Mzuzu, his base.

He was driving alone.

“He passed on while being attended to in Mzuzu” Communications Secretary of the Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM), Father Andrew Kaufa, said in a media statement.

A rift between late president Bingu wa Mutharika and the Catholic Church increased when Bishop Zuza gave a public speech in front of the president, saying  several times that those who believe themselves to be perfect and to have no need of advice are perfect fools and blatantly called late President Mutharika ‘Chindele cha kufikapo’ in 2011.

He bluntly said in late Mutharika’s presence that he should stop gagging the civil society, the media and the faith community, saying they had a role to play in safeguarding the hard-won democracy and the rule of law.

Zuza made the remarks at the National Day of Prayers , saying any person who thinks is always perfect is wrong.

He said that those that believe are perfect than others are even worse.

The bishop intended the speech to be a general criticism of the way the country is led, but the president took it as a personal affront. Bingu “never missed an opportunity to attack the churches, without any respect,” Montfort missionary Fr. Piergiorgio Gamba told Fides news agency.

May his soul rest in peace.
