Malawi: numerous government spies at bishops’ meeting
Catholic World News - September 28, 2011

A month ago, Bishop Joseph Mukasa Zuza, the president of the episcopal conference, called upon President Bingu wa Mutharika to “stop suffocating civil society, the press, the judiciary power and democracy.”
