The decision by the Archbishop, the Most Rev. Stephen Samuel Kaziimba Mugalu follows the death of the Bishop of Nebbi Rt. Rev. Alphonse Watho-Kudi on Sunday at Arua Regional Referral Hospital after he succumbed to Covid-19.
The deceased's family confided in Martin Ojara Mapenduzi, the Gulu District LC5 Chairperson with whom Lapolo closely worked on the COVID-19 Gulu Task Force and revealed that he died after being abandoned among 17 other patients at the COVID-19 red-light room without caregivers.
