“The sudden death of His Grace Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, the Archbishop of Kampala is shocking and a huge loss to the Christian family and the country at large. We will miss his wise counsel on many issues. May the Almighty God Rest His Soul in Eternal Peace.”
Meanwhile, the ICT Minister, Hon.Judith Nabakooba in her condolence message has called for calm and asked the public to refrain from spreading speculations and what she described as false rumors about the death of the Archbishop.
“Let us remain calm and wait for the church to give their last word and probably the doctors once they are done with their investigations but right now, we should remain calm and only pray for his soul,” she said.
