Museveni, Religious Leaders Pay Tribute to Archbishop Nkoyoyo

From Uganda-

President Museveni yesterday joined church leaders at All Saints Cathedral, Nakasero in Kampala to pay tribute to former Church of Uganda Archbishop Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo.

Nkoyoyo, who was archbishop between 1995 and 2005, died last Friday at Kampala Hospital after succumbing to pneumonia aged 80.

The casket carrying his body was brought to the cathedral at about 2pm, with hundreds of mourners in attendance to celebrate the life of a man who many have since described as "loving and caring".

President Museveni praised the late Nkoyoyo for his developmental drives, notably the construction of the Uganda Martyrs Anglican Museum at Namugongo.

His work at Namugongo

"I want to salute him for his passion for Namugongo. We are going to support the completion of the work there. The archbishop died when he was worried about Namugongo. That was a good death and he lived his life on earth about doing good," Mr Museveni said.
