New Bishop in Kokstad, South Africa

By IMBISA Communications

The Holy Father has appointed Fr. Thulani Victor Mbuyisa CMM as the new Bishop of the Diocese of Kokstad in South Africa. The Diocese has been vacant since the transfer of Bishop Zolile Mpambani SCJ to the Metropolitan See of Bloemfontein two years ago.

Msgr. Thulani is South African and has been, until this moment of his appointment, the Superior General of the Congregation of Mariannhill Missionaries. Once ordained as Bishop, Msgr. Thulani will become a member of the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference and therefore also a member of IMBISA. The IMBISA Secretariat congratulates him together with the Diocese of Kokstad for the great news, assuring all concerned an abundance of prayers.
