Archbishop Lwanga’s office secretary Msgr. Kimbowa dies aged 80

The catholic church in Uganda has yet suffered another setback after one of the office secretaries in the Arch Bishop’s office, Msgr. Charles Musankumbi Kimbowa passed on.

The 80 year old died at Nsambya Hospital aged 80.

He is one of the few priests within the catholic faith who served from a deacon to a priest before being named a Monsignor, a step away from becoming a Bishop.

A Monsignor (Msgr.) is a title of honour in the Roman Catholic Church, borne by persons of ecclesiastic rank and implying a distinction bestowed by the pope, either in conjunction with an office or merely titular.

Uganda has less than a hundred Monsignors yet more priests are passed out every year.

The death of Msgr. Kimbowa according the Kampala Archdiocese head, Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga leaves a gap in the administration of the church within the country.

Msgr. Kimbowa’s death comes after the country suffered the death of the former Kampala City Mayor Alhajji Nasser Ntege Ssebagala which occurred on Saturday morning.
