In this interview with Bishop Martin Mtumbuka of the Malawian diocese of Karonga, we get behind the headlines to find out about life in a newly-formed and, in parts, remote Catholic diocese in the north of the country.

In this extended interview we discuss socio-economic issues in Malawi, women's rights, the Catholic community, relations with other religions and logistical issues ministering to the faithful.

We also learn about a very detached part of the diocese where the community has no access to roads, schools, hospitals or state structures of any sort. The staple diet of the people is believed to be beer!
