By refusing to call names, the church has once more shown its ugly and hypocritical face to the people of Africa.Take Paul Biya of Cameroon my country for exampleHis father was a cathechist, he was raised up by missionaries and he was to become a priest. But he was alledgely dismissed from the seminary for stealing.He was given power 27 years ago this November 6.His dark record as an abuser of human rights is glaring. he has openly stolen elections, stolen huge sums of money and masterminded the killing of hundreds of individuals. He has encouraged a group of chronies to reap the country of all its resources; leading Roger milla’s country to the dubious title of ‘most corrupt country’ in the world on atleast two occassions. Yet that did not stop the late john Paul 11 to fly to Cameroon and baptising Paul Biya’s Children.What signal does the church send with such acts? By lending its prestige to a known and corrupt impostor like Paul Biya, the Catholic church can only be seen as an accomplice to the heinous crimes of such individuals. They should thus spare us the headaches of a pontifical communique from the Vatican

It would have been far better to acknowledge the truth, that is that corrupted leadership brings countries to their knees – and hurts those who are being served, i.e. the people. To raise other untruths merely serves to further the lie, the corruption, the famine. Let us rather examine our consciences and fix what is wrong.

But if the church is serious about being a force for change then church leaders themselves must stop propping up dictators like Mugabe. Many senior Catholic leaders in Zimbabwe have at best turned a blind eye to Mugabe’s excesses and officiated at Mugabe’s wedding and other State occasions. Father Mukonoweshuro, a Jesuit Priest, has been particularly close to Mugabe over the years. The Catholic Church leadership has never done anything about it. Charity begins at home; the Pope of all people should know that!
