KAMPALA - Former Archbishop of Church of Uganda Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo will be laid to rest at the Namugongo Martyrs Anglican Shrine later today (Tuesday).
Before his death last Friday in Kampala, Nkoyoyo had left instructions on how his grave should be built. This was in form of an architectural design on paper, with measurements and other specifications.
Nkoyoyo, who has been hailed for his commitment to the Church of Uganda and nation-building, is said to have instructed that his grave is constructed with no tiles.
True to his wish, his grave has been completed and built according to the plan the fallen clergymen left behind.
Meanwhile, a special funeral service is being held at Namugongo ahead of burial later in the afternoon.
