Kibuuka said the global leader while on course of visit may also visit President Yoweri Museveni.

"He may meet the President for some talks as the head of faith on international basis. He is going to meet Christians in the centers we have opened in eastern Uganda such as Kaliro, Namutumba, Namulembe among many others," said Kibuuka.

 "As he is making a pastoral visit in Africa, he is coming to Uganda to look at the challenges we have as church so we can  sit together and devise means on how best we can handle them. He will also preach during the course of Divine Liturgy at MAMRE prayer center in Namugongo on Sunday."
