The Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) has learnt with shock the sudden passing away of Bishop Moses Hamungole of Monze Catholic Diocese and Fr Michael Kelly of the JCTR. Our sincere condolences go to the Hamungole and Kelly families and the entire Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB), and the Jesuit Centre for Theological Reflections (JCTR).

The CCZ will remember Bishop Hamungole for his selfless dedication to the work of God, firstly as a Catholic Bishop; secondly, as Chairman of the Commission for Social Communications at the Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops; and thirdly, as Chairman of the Department of Social Communications at the Nairobi-based Association of Member Episcopal Conferences of Eastern Africa.
