A pastoral letter authored by Roman Catholic Bishops and read in all the churches in the country on Sunday says that Malawi has witnessed a new era of the rule of law, good governance, accountability and transparency among other positive developments.
Roman Catholic church hails Malawi Government's positive developments
| The letter states that in the past governments have raised false hope among the general citizenry only to discover that leaders are later corrupted by power.|
“We seem to witness a new Malawi where food security, education and economic planning are given the attention they truly deserve,” reads the letter in part.
The leaders acknowledged efforts by the government donor community and civil society groups for their timely response during the famine period that hit the country five months ago. Other areas that the letter has highlighted include Agriculture subsides, the need for a legislation on pricing and selling of essential commodities in order to protect producers especially the under privileged.
Tree cutting and faithfulness and abstinence to fight the HIV/Aids Pandemic were issues also tackled.
