He earlier served at Nakanyonyi Archdeaconry as Archdeacon before his transfer to Ndeeba Archdeaconry.

 Unlike his predecessors, Kisekka will be taking over leadership from a caretaker Bishop appointed by the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda in July 2023 when the diocese failed to have a successful candidate for the office of the bishop at the time of Bishop Eridard Nsubuga’s retirement in July 2023.

The appointment of Emeritus Bishop Ssebagala as caretaker came after the revocation of then-Luweero bishop-elect, Rev Can Godfrey Kasana on July 9, 2023, which caused conflicts within the diocese.

A section of Christians opposed to the revocation process of Rev Can Godfrey Kasana had planned to block the ceremony at St Mark Cathedral Luweero.
