Church to Build Hotel at Martyrs’ Shrine

As one of the ways to improve the face of the Uganda martyrs’ shrine, the Catholic Church has finalized plans to construct a three-star hotel at Namugongo, reports CISA.

This was disclosed by Kampala Archbishop Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga during celebrations to mark 135 years of the Catholic religion in Uganda at Kigungu in Entebbe on Monday, February 17, according to Uganda’s New Vision Newspaper.

The shrine attracts thousands of pilgrims every year to mark Uganda Martyrs’ Day on June 3.

The day honors young Christian converts who were murdered for their faith on the orders of Kabaka Mwanga (King of Buganda) in the late-1880s.

Lwanga pointed out that Christian visitors to Namugongo have been facing difficulties in accessing accommodation and food at the shrine.

The planned structure will cost Ush 2.5bn(USD 1M), he said, and will have over 75 self-contained rooms, a modern library and a conference hall.

Other 25 existing units around the place will also be upgraded to a self-contained standard.

Archbishop Kizito explained that an increasing Catholic population has led to higher demand for such facilities. He said the hotel would also be a tourism asset for the Catholic Church.

“After 50 years, we realized that the 25 existing rooms could not accommodate the growing population,” said Lwanga.

Thousands of pilgrims from all over East Africa throng Kigungu to join in on the celebrations.
