The Catholic Commission for Justice and peace of the Archdiocese of Blantyre says Covid -19 has affected its efforts of providing Paralegal Services to the marginalized rural populations of Neno district.

According to Frackson   Makwangwala, CCJP Paralegal Desk Officer, the organization failed to reach women, girls and other vulnerable groups due to Covid -19 pandemic gathering restrictions, a development which deprived people of their right to justice.

Neno district Magistrate , her worship Magret  Khobili echoed the sentiments saying courts have been overwhelmed with cases that could been dealt with at community level.

Meanwhile, Superintendent Mavuto Banda head of operations at Neno Police station says a lot of suspects were put on police bail as a decongestive measure.
