“I have lost my neighbor”, Pastor Kayanja mourned the death of Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.
“I’m shocked, saddened and in total disbelief. I ‘am pleading to all of us to pray to God and seek him in this trying moment and especially the Catholic Church to be strengthened in this trying moment,” he said.
He added; “Every time we met at national functions at Kololo or State House, we greeted each other that “how are you neighbor?”
He had an aura of excellence and wisdom -Pastor Serwadda
Pastor Joseph Serwadda, the presiding apostle of the born-again faith in Uganda, celebrated the life of Archbishop Lwanga as a person who had an aura of excellence and wisdom.
“Away from his training, Dr. Lwanga exhibited amazing insightfulness on many issues, especially on governance and leadership.
He never missed his words and he asked probing questions on top of being a hard worker. This nation has lost one of its gems,” Serwadda said.
He added; “I would like to convey my deepest condolence to the Catholic Church and offer my heartfelt gratitude for having had an opportunity to work closely with His Grace as a member of the Council of Presidents at the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda. He will dearly be missed.”
The Orthodox Church Archbishop, Yona Lwanga, described the death of Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Kampala, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga as a great loss to God’s ministry in the country and the whole world.
“It is really shocking to everybody and the whole world. I ask Christians to remain calm and wait for the postmortem report,” he said.
“As a colleague in the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda (IRCU) and the Joint Christian Council (JCC), he called me after the joint Way of the Cross procession at Namirembe on Friday (April 2, 2021). He wanted to find out how I was doing because he knew that I was a bit weak,” Lwanga said.
Yona Lwanga was supposed to join Kaziimba and Kizito for the Way of the Cross procession that started at the gate of the official residence of Namirembe Diocese’s bishop to St. Paul’s Cathedral Namirembe but he did not show up because he felt weak.
