Your Excellency, dear Mr President,

It was with sorrow that I learned of an attack on a school in Mpondwe that had killed and injured dozens of people, mostly children, and led to an abduction of several pupils.

I offer my heartfelt commiseration to all those affected by this terrible affliction and pray to the Lord that He may grant them consolation and fortitude and give strength to the doctors fighting for the life of the injured.

With condolences,

+KIRILL
