  • Father Jesús Ramesh Babu Gudapati will move to Monda and Guaro in September

The Bishop of Malaga has agreed to move Father Jesús Ramesh Babu Gudapati from the parishes of Benajarafe, Chilches and Cajiz to Monda and Guaro.

This follows the torrent of threats, insults and xenophobic abuse he has suffered at the hands of a group of local youths.

He will move in September and be replaced by Father José Danilo Moreno Pérez.

The situation hasn't improved for Father Jesús, despite a 16-year-old boy being sent to a youth detention centre for six months for his part in the attacks.
