Zambia: bishop accused of inciting people against government

Catholic World News - March 09, 2011

A US-born bishop is urging Zambians not to elect former President Frederick Chiluba to a third term-- prompting an angry reaction from the Chiluba’s political party, which remains in power. “Duffy’s remarks are very dangerous because he is inciting the people of Western Province to rise against this democratically elected government,” said Chembe Nyangu, acting national secretary of the Movement for Multiparty Democracy.

Born in Massachusetts, Bishop Paul Duffy, OMI, led the Diocese of Mongu from 1997 to February 2011. He is now 78 and says that the government has attempted to deport him.

Chiluba served as the nation’s president from 1991 to 2002.
