The Government of Uganda and the country’s Anglican Church will join forces next month for a major commemoration to mark the 40th Anniversary of the assassination of Archbishop Janani Luwum. Archbishop Luwum was murdered by Uganda’s then-president, Idi Amin, on 16 February 1977. He is remembered on the anniversary of his martyrdom in the liturgical calendars of many Anglican provinces around the world. The date is now an official holiday in Uganda.
