The remarks we make are the truth. The church is the conscience of the state —Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga

Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.

“The truth between the church and politics is that the churches are not enemies of the state. The remarks we make are none other than those telling the truth because the church is the conscience of the State. Politics, faith and reason need one another,” Lwanga stated while giving his speech at the burial of former Archbishop of Church of Uganda, Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo at Uganda Marty’s Namugongo Shrine.

The late Nkoyoyo will be buried today at 4pm.
