Nkoyoyo has been battling cancer of the throat.
PIC: Nkoyoyo has passed on after a long battle with cancer.
The retired Church of Uganda archbishop, Dr Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo has lost the battle to cancer today at Kampala Hospital in Kololo.
Nkoyoyo returned to Uganda in June last year from the UK, where he had been admitted at St. Mary’s Hospital Paddington, London since 2016 after he was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus (throat).
When we contacted the family, his niece, Peace Walakira confirmed that her uncle was critically ill and needed God’s intervention to save his life.
“He is badly off. We need your prayers right now,” Walakira said. Asked if the cancer had taken a turn for the worse, she said: “Some other stuff; it is not only cancer.”
His wife, Ruth Nkoyoyo, could hardly speak on phone because of anxiety, but she offered to say, “I am still talking to doctors, please call me later.”
Sadly, he has passed on and we will keep you posted with more developments.
