Rwanda: Muvunyi Consecrated As Kigali Anglican Bishop

From Rwanda-

Bishop Louis Muvunyi, was, yesterday, consecrated as the next Anglican Bishop of Kigali Diocese at a colourful event that was attended by all members of the Rwandan Protestant Council and top government officials.

Munvunyi, who has been the principal of Kigali Anglican Theological College replaces, Emmanuel Kolini, who retired at the age of 65, as required by the Canterbury constitution.

Reading out the Bishop's Charge, Muvunyi congratulated his predecessor for his achievements and vowed to carry on the cross to spur the church further.

"I will emphasize the expansion of the Anglican church in Rwanda through construction of new churches and preaching the gospel of God," Muvunyi said.

"We will continue promoting unity and reconciliation among Rwandans, fight against HIV/Aids and poverty as well as promoting education and empowering youth."

The outgoing bishop, Kolini, thanked the team he worked with for the time he spent in office and attributed much of his success to his wife and children.
