For once, I peal to my mother Catholic Church, desist giving Priests motorcycles. We have a history and precedence in Dedza Diocese how the motorcycles have killed and disabled a number of our beloved priests. Let’s find other means of transport and give them to our beloved priests. It’s quite sad we have lost a green and energetic priest.
