Dr Kaziimba told Christians in Bundibugyo district that he has no authority as a person to grant a diocese. He was responding to demands from local and cultural leaders who tasked him to pronounce himself on the creation of the proposed diocese.
"I am very happy to retire today. Which by God’s grace happens to be my 65th birthday. It is my joy to congratulate Rt. Rev. Stephen Kazimba, I pray that God guides you in your leadership as Archbishop of Church of Uganda," said Ntagali.
