The Most Reverend Orthodox Archbishop of Uganda, Metropolitan Jonah Lwanga has died.

"Our spiritual Father is gone to meet the Lord," the Orthodox Church in Uganda said in a statement on Sunday.

The Church  early Sunday virtually held an intercessory prayer, also informing  congregants that His Eminence Lwanga was hospitalized.

The vocal prelate was born in 1945, just a year before the religion was recognized by the government despite having been established in the early 1900s.
