Kampala: Kampala Metropolitan Police has announced that tomorrow, 7th April 2021 at 6:00am there will be traffic diversions at Namugongo, Kira Municipality in Wakiso District meant to enforce fallen Archbishop of Kampala Cyprian Kizito Lwanga’s burial programme.
According to Rev.Fr.Nicholas Mulumba, the head of communication for Kampala Archdiocese, due to COVID-19, a total of 500 mourners have been invited to attend the burial ceremony.
For that reason therefore, police say the other mourners are expected to attend the public view and it is why traffic will be diverted to ensure that there is a smooth flow of the ceremony.
The Diversions Will Be As Follows;
The body of Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, is expected to be taken to Namugongo Martyrs’ shrine for public viewing.
-There will be a diversion at Kyaliwajala Trading Centre and Angelina Health Centre.
-The stretch between Kyaliwajala and Angelina is restricted to the public, except vehicles authorised by the security team.
-Traffic flow on Semambo Road will remain open for the motorists travelling from Naalya heading to Ssonde and Mukono side.
-The motorists travelling from Seeta to Ssonde can access Namugongo through Semambo Road and connect to Naalya or Kireka Townships.
All VIPs will access Namugongo Catholic shrines through Kyaliwajala or Angelina Health Centre and access their parking inside the shrine as they will be directed by the traffic police and security.
They will also be screened by security, and are expected to comply with both the health and security guidelines.
The general public, who intend to go for public viewing, will use Semambo Road and access their parking at Namugongo Primary School.
All Boda Bodas are restricted from passing beyond our cut off points.
