Ven Kisekka, according to the statement by the Anglican church will be consecrated as the Luweero Bishop on March 26, 2024, at St Mark Cathedral in Luweero Town Council.

Kisekka comes into take helm of the diocese which has been under Rtd Bishop of Mukono Diocese James Williams Ssebagala since July 18, 2023, when Archbishop Samuel Kaziimba made the appointment for the caretaker role as a substantial bishop is found.

Rev Can Muhoozi will succeed Bishop Stephen Namanya who retires on May 26, 2024, when he clocks the mandatory retirement age.

A holder of a diploma in Forestry (MUK), a Bachelor’s degree in Theology (UCU) and a Master’s Degree in Theology obtained at Kwazulu Natal University in South Africa (2008), Kisekka has served the Church in different capacities, including the position of Parish Priest at St Peters Church of Uganda Lugazi and Misindye Church of Uganda (Seeta) Archdeaconry.
