Rwandan Pilgrims Attend Uganda Martyrs Day

From Uganda-

AT least 300 pilgrims from Rwanda, yesterday, joined thousands of Christians from across the globe in commemorating Martyrs Day, in Namugongo, Uganda.

Antoine Kambanda, the Bishop of Kibungo Catholic Diocese led the delegation of the pilgrims to Namugongo.

Every June 3, Christians from around the world pay homage to 45 Martyrs, who were killed by Buganda King Mwanga II in 1886, for converting to Christianity.

The majority of the pilgrims came from Rwanda, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania and DR Congo, besides Uganda.

The Bishop of Kotido Diocese, Giuseppe Filippi, who was the main celebrant preached against immoral behaviors like corruption and called on Christians to emulate the martyrs.
