Archbishop Ambrose Madtha passes away
Ivory Coast, December 9, 2012 :
The papal envoy to Ivory Coast, Indian
Archbishop Ambrose Madtha, has been killed in a
road accident in the west of the country, the
Ivorian church announced. Madtha was travelling
back from the northwestern town of Odienne to an
ordination ceremony in the country’s west on
Saturday evening when his car collided with
another vehicle. Unfortunately the apostolic
nuncio died on the spot,” said Mathieu Tehan,
spokesman for the western diocese of Man where
the ceremony was to take place. President
Alassane Ouattara, in a statement read on
national television, expressed his “deep regret”
at the death and sent condolences to the church
and Madtha’s family. (Source: Daijiworld)
