Government please get serious about your plans on covid. At least give us a strategy we may hold onto even just for hope. May the soul of Father Mwale rest in peace. We know that priests do a lot for communities in Malawi and the demise of this one is a blow to a community. May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.
