Saturday 3rd April 2021, saw the nation sent into a somber state when news broke that Kampala Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga had been found lying lifeless in his room.
The announcements left many Christians, celebrities, politicians, among many other people heartbroken as they had last seen the Archbishop in public on Good Friday in perfect health without any complications taking part in this year’s way of the cross to which he also carried.
His shocking death sparked mixed opinions among netizens to which it will take long for some individuals and mostly his family members to recover from because he has been a person of integrity, truth speaker, and always condemned injustices in the society.
So we have decided to take a look at how different celebrities, politicians, and many other people have paid respect to the fallen Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga who is set to be laid to rest on Thursday 8th April, 2021.
It is a dark day for the Catholic Church. It is a dark day for Uganda.
I have learned with great shock about the sudden death of His Grace Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, the Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese. It will be very hard to cope with this unimaginable loss. He will be remembered for always speaking out against injustice and oppression.
Only yesterday as he joined the faithful to celebrate the way of the cross, he raised his voice yet again and condemned the rampant abductions of our people by the state. Archbishop Lwanga joins several other eminent outspoken religious leaders who have recently died under very unclear circumstances.
May the Lord receive his gentle soul in heaven.Bobi Wine

Attending mass on Easter Sunday where Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga was not in attendance looked bizarre and hard to comprehend! Writing a send-off message in a book placed on a table next to his photo was unbelievable. As we celebrate Easter today, may we acknowledge the significance of the rising of Christ from the dead.
John 11:25-26 says that” I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.”Barbie Kyagulanyi

I have had my Easter Prayers from Kiyinda-Mityana Diocese where I also joined in mass the Chairperson of Uganda’s Episcopal Conference Bishop Dr. Anthony Zziwa and the nation at large in mourning the untimely demise of Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.
It is unfortunate that we have had to celebrate this year’s resurrection of Jesus Christ in sorrow while mourning the passing of Archbishop Cyprian who has been a towering pillar in our collective struggle for justice and dignity.
God has been using the voice of the Archbishop, like other notable clerics, as a conduit to deliver His message of freeing those in captivity and those who are suffering unjustly at the hands of the State. That is why I call upon Gov’t to heed Dr. Lwanga’s final prayer to have abducted people and all political prisoners to be freed unconditionally.
I have had an opportunity during the mass to give thanksgiving to God for making it possible for me to return home in perfect shape. I concluded by asking my constituents and all Ugandans to continue fighting for the victory of our President-elect H. E. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert who won the January 2021 elections. Happy Easter to you comrades. May the soul of our Archbishop rest in eternal peace.MP Francis Zaake Butebi
