On Tuesday, January 25, Ssemogerere will be installed as Archbishop of Kampala to take over the most influential Archdiocese in the country. Because of the influence of the Archdiocese and the people at its helm, it is often flocked by politicians seeking blessings and those who want to gain and maintain a grip on power.
