The emeritus Bishop Rt. Rev. Patrick Tugume has been appointed the Caretaker of North Kigezi diocese.
Archbishop Kaziimba made the appointment announcement during today’s burial of the Rt. Rev. Benon Magezi at Emmanuel Cathedral, Rukungiri.
The appointment follows the death of the diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Magezi who died on 15th June at Mulago Hospital after being diagnosed with Covid-19.
According to the Constitution and Canons of the Church of Uganda, when a diocesan Bishop’s position falls vacant, the Archbishop automatically becomes the Bishop of the Diocese and takes on all ecclesiastical authority.
