Malawi: Catholic Bishop Urges Politicians to Embrace Issue-Based Campaign

A Catholic Church bishop has urged politicians to embrace issue-based campaign as the country gears up for the May 21 highly contested tripartite election.

Bishop Peter Masikuwa said this on Saturday when his Chikwawa diocese commemorated World Day for the Sick.

"We want the elections to be peaceful and this can only be achieved if our politicians stick to issue-based campaign instead of castigating or insulting each other," said the bishop.
