NAMUGONGO JUNE 1, 2017

President Museveni and Mama Nyerere meet at Namugongo.

KAMPALA - It's two days to Uganda Martyrs' Day, marked every June 3 to celebrated the lives of 22 Ugandan Christians whose commitment to their Christian faith led to their deaths by the orders of Buganda king Mwanga.

 

In the run-up to this year's celebrations, a special service was held Thursday inside the Uganda Martyrs' basilica to pray for the beatification of former Tanzanian leader Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere, who died 18 years ago.

His wife, 87-year-old Mama Maria Nyerere, attended the special service, as did President Yoweri Museveni, who was delighted to meet Tanzania's First Lady.

Kampala Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga led the prayers attended by several high-profile people, pilgrims from Tanzania and other faithful.

These moments were captured on camera . . .

On Saturday, the whole of Namugongo, like in past years, will be filled with people. Security has been heightened ahead of the day.

RAINY AFTERNOON . . .

There was a downpour early Thursday afternoon, but it did little to damp the spirits of the pilgrims that had already arrived at Namugongo.

Saint Mary's Cathedral Rubaga, commonly referred to as Rubaga Cathedral, is the parent cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Kampala, the oldest Roman Catholic diocese in Uganda. In 1914 the missionaries began constructing a modern cathedral at Lubaga (Rubaga). Construction was completed in 1925 and St. Mary's Cathedral Rubaga was consecrated on 31 December 1925.
