The Diocese of Matabeleland is in the south of Zimbabwe, bordering Zambia, Botswana and South Africa. Its main city is Bulawayo and the Diocese contains within it the major attractions of Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park.
Today, we hear from Bishop Cleophas Lunga, the Bishop of Matabeleland who talks about some of the issues facing his Diocese.
One of their major concerns is bringing together urban and rural parishes, so that they are each able to understand the other’s situation and specific problems.
Bishop Cleophas also talks about a project the Diocese is hoping to embark on which will help equip parishes to start their own new and vibrant income-generating projects.
