Retired Anglican Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo has died.
According to sources, the 79-year prelate who recently returned from London for treatment in June 2017, passed on at Kampala Hospital today.
Archbishop Nkoyoyo, the fifth head of the Anglican Church (Church of Uganda), fell ill in November 2016 and was admitted to a private hospital in Kensington Central London in December the same year.
He needed about £60,000 (about sh265.2m) to cater for his hospital bills and that led to launching of a fundraising campaign, with government contributing Shs82 million towards the costs.
