Zimbabwean Govt Hits Back at Catholic Bishops

Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has told Catholic priests to stop using the pulpit to advance the agenda of his critics. The Zimbabwe Catholic Bishops Conference last week penned a damning condemnation of the Zanu-PF-led administration, denouncing the government for putting the country through "a multi-layered crisis", including economic collapse, deepening poverty, corruption and human rights abuses. The letter elicited a vitriolic response by government through Information minister Monica Mutsvangwa, who labelled the clergymen "evil".
