The government of the African nation of Chad has expelled an italian born bishop who had served as a missionary there for 36 years.
The expulsion of 67 year old Bishop Michele Russo, who was installed as Bishop of Doba in 1989, followed remarks critical of the oil industry.
"the riches, because of human greed have turned from blessing into curse for the local population," he recently said. "The natural wealth of Africa should be used to build the future of the sons and daughters of the continent."
"After 50 years of uncontrolled exploitation, with the complicity of the local governments and indifference towards the African people and their future, I think it's time to become aware of these facts." he added.
In expelling Bishop Russo, authorities said that he had "engaged in activities incompatible with his status."
