Archbishop of the Anglican Church Dr. Stephen Kazimba Mugalu has castigated government over the closure of Canon Lawrence PTC.

Speaking at the closure of his four day visit to Lango diocese in Boroboro, Stephen Kazimba Mugalu said Canon Lawrence PTC, was established by the Anglican Church to support the building of the kingdom of God and should have not been closed.

Archbishop Kazimba said the closure of Canon Lawrence PTC also affects the history of the church since the late former arch Bishop of the church of Uganda Janani Luwum studied from there and has been revered in Uganda’s history.

He said government should have opted to turn the institution into a Core PTC as opposed to closing it.

Archbishop Kazimba also vowed not to receive any financial support from the arch Bishop of Canterbury whom he said is in support of homosexuality.

A group of businessmen from America led by John Eden pledged financial support of 1 million dollars for construction of Sira Donggo Mission of Hope that is being undertaken by the bishop of Lango Diocese Prof. Alfred Olwa to spread the gospel as well as the construction of a mission house at the headquarters of Lango Diocese, Boroboro.

Canon Ken Gabelle Odur who is spearheading the construction of the mission house said they have raised 862 million out of 1.9 billion shillings required for construction of the facility.

The head of laity at Lango diocese, Sam Atul, said the people of Lango collected 51 million shillings for Archbishop Kazimba as well as other items during his visit in Lango.
