The website will help us to present all the activities done in the diocese to our donors in Washington, London and all other places. This development will help us to be more accountable,” said Right Reverend Mtumbuka.

The Karonga Diocese Bishop, who on the day, also handed over computer and science laboratories to St. Mary Girls’ National Secondary School in the district, revealed plans to construct a private secondary school of international standard to accommodate students from all over the world.

As a diocese, we are planning to have an international private school five years from now with the aim to support the world with the best education,” said Mtumbuka.
