According to Kitakure, Dr. Lwanga joined the IRCU Council of Presidents in 2006 and ‘has since served selflessly and diligently in this capacity for 15 years.

Kitakure said the deceased ‘will always be remembered for initiating development projects geared towards supporting ordinary citizens’.

He said IRCU will miss his support towards multi-religious collaboration, strong stance against the social ills in society, and an ardent advocate for human rights, justice, sustainable peace, and national reconciliation.

‘As we celebrate his life, may we reflect on the kind of virtues he has advocated for; of a just and morally upright society founded on socio-economic justice, shared prosperity, popular, responsible governance and respect for the rule of law’.

He said the IRCU fraternity, the Catholic community, and Uganda at large will miss him profoundly.

‘May God grant this faithful servant an eternity of happiness’, the statement reads.
