The House of Bishops has elected rev.canon Godfrey Mbitse as the 3rd bishop of muhabura dioces.
The sitting was on 25th February 2023 in Mukono. He will be consecrated and enthroned as Bishop on 2nd April 2023 at St. Andrew’s Cathedral, Seseme, Kisoro.
Canon Mbitse was born on 2nd February 1964 in Ruko Village, Nyarubuye Subcounty, Kisoro District.
He became born again in 1985 while in secondary school.
In reflecting on his conversion to Christ, Canon Mbitse said, “My parents were not committed Christians, so I grew up not knowing much about Christ. I was trying to find life in worldly pleasures.
Rev. canon Mbitse said that after many fellowships and morning devotions in primary and secondary school, he was finally challenged by Matthew 6:33, which says.
“Seek first his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” and on that day he committed to live for God instead of seeking worldly pleasures, said Rev Canon Mbitse.
