South Rwenzori launches search for next bishop

From Uganda-

The South Rwenzori Diocesan Synod has launched a search for her next bishop as the incumbent prepares to handover power.

The Rt Rev Jackson Nzerebende Tembo, whose term expires in 2021, succeeded retired Bishop Zebedee Masereka Kahangwa, the diocese’s founder bishop.

Masereka bowed out in 2003 after serving from 1984 when south Rwenzori Diocese was curved out of Fort Portal-based Rwenzori Diocese.

Kick-starting the search, Bishop Nzerebende urged the synod to start looking among themselves for his successor.

He was delivering his eight-page charge to the diocesan 17th Synod session which took place at St Paul’s Cathedral, the diocesan headquarters located in Kamaiba Ward of Kasese Municipality on Saturday.

In the Anglican church of Uganda, the synod is highest policy-making body chaired by a bishop and sits once in two years.
