Masaka Diocese Catholic Bishop Serverus Jumba eulogized the late Archbishop of Kampala Diocese Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga saying he was an open book that stood for the truth in the country and beyond.
Bishop Jumba said during the requiem mass held at Uganda Martyrs Catholic Shrine Namugongo. The Archbishop was on Holy Saturday found dead in his room. According to a post-mortem report from Mulago national referral hospital, Dr Lwanga succumbed to Ischemic heart disease following coronary heart thrombosis.
During the service, the Bishop Jumba said; “We have lost a shepherd and great leader barely a few months after the passing of Bishop John Baptist Kaggwa. Archbishop Lwanga’s death has become the talk of town.”
“We pray that you (Archbishop Cyprian Lwanga) our beloved may you hear God’s voice. Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master,” Bishop Jumba prayed.
He said the fallen Archbishop has been an open book that stood for the truth, down to earth, passionate about human rights, breathed and lived it.
“All church leaders are confident that he is with the lord. May the Lord open his arms and welcome him into his kingdom.”
