According to the burial programme released by the Most Rev. Stanley Ntagali, Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, the main funeral service will be held on Tuesday, January 9, at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Namirembe, starting at 9:00 am.
He released the tentative programme, saying in case of any changes, the public will be informed. “Let us celebrate together the life and ministry of the faithful servant of God, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo, who has been promoted to glory,” he concluded.
Nkoyoyo has been battling cancer of the oesophagus and by the time of his death was receiving treatment at Kampala hospital. Previously, Nkoyoyo had been treated at a London hospital but the huge hospital bills forced the family to appeal to well-wishers, the government, the church and the kingdom of Buganda for monetary contributions to clear the outstanding bill.
In the middle of last year, he returned to the country in what his handlers and himself, were to later tell the public at Namirembe Cathedral during a thanksgiving service that he was feeling much better.
Nkoyoyo led the church for 10 years until he handed over to Henry Luke Orombi who also handed over to the current Archbishop Stanley Ntagali. Nkoyoyo was born in the current Mityana district in 1938 to Erisa Nkoyoyo Wamala and Naome Nakintu who have both since passed.
