Cardinal-elect Jean Zerbo of Bamako, Mali, the first from the western Africa nation, will use his position to ease the multiple crises facing sub-Saharan regions, an aide said, despite new media accusations linking him to a financial scandal.Theodore Togo, secretary-general of Caritas Mali, said Cardinal-elect Zerbo’s success in building interfaith relations and helping ease tensions between the government and rebel forces has been positive for the nation of 17 million.
« But our own problems are linked to this region’s evolving crises, and we’re part of a wider picture. What Christians can do for peace and justice here also have consequences elsewhere, » Togo said.
