Pope Francis Appoints Cypriano Lwanga’s Replacement

Pope Francis has appointed the Bishop of Kasana Luwero, Paul Semwogerere, as the Apostolic Administrator of Kampala Archdiocese, until a substantive Archbishop is appointed.

This was announced by the Pope’s representative to Uganda, (Papal Nuncio) Archbishop Bianco Luigi at the burial ceremony of the Late Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga at Rubaga Cathedral.

In the message, he consoled the Catholic Church in Uganda and the world for the loss of a great and committed shepherd like Dr Lwanga.

Dr Lwanga succumbed to Ischemic heart disease following coronary heart thrombosis last week. He was found dead in his room.
