Karonga Catholic Diocesan secretary Mwai Shaba said the diocese wants to see to it that there is justice in the matter.

“We want to intervene. The church has evidence that some councillors were involved in the theft of the money,” said Shaba.

The council suspended the director of finance after council workers went without pay and a preliminary investigation showed money amounting up to K50 million was plundered.

But this is the first time that some ward councillors have been named in the alleged plunder of council money.

In Mangochi, some councillors were arrested on allegations of plunder of council money. However Shaba could not say when exactly the church would join the case although he was emphatic the church would join the case when it starts at the magistrates court in the district.

Personally I strongly believe that God’s reason for publishing John the baptist prison case was meant as a lesson to the leaders of today. Seriously, can’t our Christian leaders borrow a leaf from John the Baptist’s leadership style?? John was ever determined and fearless. John confronted the evils of his day head on………….(Luke… Read more »
