Security authorities have called for extra vigilance during the Episcopal consecration and installation of Msgr. Lawrence Mukasa as the third Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Kasana-Luweero. The ceremony is scheduled for today August 5, 2023, at the Kasana-Luwero Diocesan Headquarters and will be officiated by His Grace Paul Ssemogerere, the Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese.

At least 15,000 people from Luwero, Nakaseke, and Nakasongal, which make up the Luwero Catholic diocese are expected at the event. In an exclusive interview with Uganda Radio Network (URN) Sam Twiineamazima, the Acting Savannah regional police publicist, says that terrorists target such events. He says that in light of the potential security threats, they have developed a comprehensive plan to ensure the safety of all attendees.

He says that a Counter-terrorism squad has been deployed to conduct a thorough search of the premises. He also says that a canine unit will also be utilized to enhance security measures. The event will have three entrances, each serving a specific purpose. 

The main gate at the Cathedral will be reserved for dignitaries, while the eastern gate near the Luwero Teachers’ SACCO Gardens and the western gate near Naiga Hotel will be accessible to the general public. Security personnel will be stationed at all entrances, and attendees will be required to undergo security checks using walk-through detectors before entry.

Bishop Mukasa will succeed the late Paul Ssemogerere as the second bishop. Notably, the previous Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese, His Grace Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, passed away in April 2021, leading to the appointment of the current Archbishop, Paul Ssemogerere.
