Malawi: numerous government spies at bishops’ meeting
September 28, 2011
As Malawi’s bishops meet amid civic unrest, “there is heavy circulation of regime spies” attempting to intimidate the bishops and “sniff what is being discussed,” according to a cleric present at the meeting.
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.”
