Zomba Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church on Saturday achieved a rare feat when it ordained its first ever Jesuit priest.
He is Reverend Father Jacob Kapita.
Speaking during the ceremony, where all Covid-19 preventing measures were observed at Zomba Cathedral, Bishop George Desmond Tambala of Zomba Diocese asked the newly ordained priest to serve God with speed and diligence.
First born in a family of two, Kapita hails from Kalaliche Village, T/A Mlumbe in Zomba and he is the 5th Jesuit father in Malawi.
He will be serving in USA.
