Mangochi Diocese launches ICT policy

The Catholic Diocese of Mangochi launched its first ever Information Communications Technology (ICT)policy which is meant to guide flow of information within the diocese.

Speaking at the launch recently at St. Augustine Cathedral, Bishop Montfort Stima said that it was significant for the diocese to have policy to avoid confusion when people disseminate information within the diocese.

Stima added that there was a gap on the flow of information, observing that anyone could make communication without authorisation.

“The policy is just a guide to make sure that there is no confusion when people have to disseminate information about development or pastoral work. The policy will guide us as to who should communicate and what because not everything is required to be publicised,” he said.

In his remarks, Diocesan Laity Chairperson, Daniel Bwanali described the launch of the policy as a step in the right direction, saying there was no sanity in the absence of the policy on issues of information and communication in the diocese.

He expressed hope that the policy will guide the dioceses on information flow to ensure order on how people should communicate.

“The coming in of the policy is a very good development because it will help us to move together,” said Bwanali.

Priests, sisters, church representatives and journalists from Mangochi who are members of the Association of Catholic Journalists (ACJ) attended the launch.
