Uganda: Martyrs Day - Preparations Complete

From Uganda-

With barely three days to this years' Uganda Matyrs' day, officials at both Namugongo Catholic and Anglican shrines where the main celebrations are held have said they are ready for the day.

The June 3 celebration themed: "The truth will make you free", will be led by the Diocese of Kiyinda-Mityana on behalf of Kampala Ecclesiastical Province at the Catholic shrine while celebrations at the Anglican shrine will be led by Namirembe Anglican.

"About 20,000 pilgrims from Uganda have so far arrived at the Anglican shrine largely from Kabale, Mbarara and Hoima," the Rev Joseph Mukasa Muwonge, a priest at Namugongo Martyrs' shrine told Daily Monitor yesterday.

According to the Rev Muwonge, apart from a few cases of pick pockets, pilgrims already at the shrine have not had serious challenges and "we have all been sent out from the premises for security check-ups".
