Pope Francis has named Kasana-Luweero diocese’s Bishop Paul Ssemogerere as the new apostolic administrator for Kampala Archdiocese.

On Thursday, Luigi Bianco, the Papal Nuncio to Uganda announced the new development during the requiem mass for Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga at Lubaga Cathedral.

The development follows the death of Archbishop Lwanga who was found dead in his room on Saturday morning.

The development means Kampala Archbishop will now be under the watch of Bishop Ssemwogere and will carry on the duties until Pope Francis appoints a substantive Archbishop.

Bishop Ssemwogerere comes from Kasana-Luweero diocese where Archbishop Lwanga first served before he was appointed the third Kampala Archdiocese.
