Addressing reporters in a joint press briefing by the Catholic Church and security at the Central Police Station in Kampala this afternoon, Mulumba said that the Church and other authorities have selected only 500 people, mostly priests and Christians who had a special attachment to the late archbishop.
While Archbishop Lwanga died in his bed last week, as a result of heart failure, according to medical reports, his colleague Bishop Kaggwa died after being diagnosed with COVID-19 in January. "It was sudden and untimely, by human standards and it has created despondence, doubt and depression within us," The Bishop of Masaka Diocese Rt Rev Serverus Jjumba said, before asking what is happening to the Church in Uganda.
The Luwero Nakaseke and Nakasongola- LUNANA Council was established in the first years of Lwanga’s service after his consecration in 1997. It aimed at ensuring that Christians from all the religious denominations in the districts of Luweero, Nakaseke and Nakasongola unite for spiritual and social development.
