Police issues Traffic guidelines as Bishops start arriving for SECAM Golden Jubilee Celebrations

The police traffic department has released the guidelines ahead of The Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM) Golden Jubilee celebrations.


The celebrations which start on Sunday 21st July will begin with Holy Mass at Rubaga Cathedral. The Mass will be attended by the over 300 Bishops and Cardinals that are flying into the country starting today from the whole continent.


According to Gervase Ndyanabo, the head of laity in Uganda, Bishops will hold a conference throughout the week until the final day of celebrations that will see Holy Mass celebrated at Namugongo Martyrs Shrine.


Addressing the media together with police traffic heads in Kampala this morning, Ndyanabo said this year’s celebration is special because SECAM is celebrating 50 years.


“The main events for the public are the Mass on the 21st of July at Rubaga and the main closing Mass at Namugongo on the 28th of July. The Bishops will remain in plenary having lots of discussions” Mr. Ndyanabo.


He said members of the press will be accredited and guided on how to cover the public events.


According to Ndyanabo, the SECAM President, H.G. Archbishop Gabriel MBILINGI, Archbishop of Lubango, Angola has already in the country, and later today, they will receive a special envoy from Rome. 


The theme for this year’s plenary is; “Church family of God in Africa, celebrate your Jubilee, proclaim, encounter, welcome Christ your savior.” 


According to Norman Musinga the Kampala Metropolitan police traffic boss says Munyonyo, Ggaba, Queens way, Katwe wansi, Mengo Hill, Lubiri-Ring, Kabakanjagala, Rubaga and Nabunya Roads will be be interrupted.
