President Yoweri Museveni has said though Bishop James Hannington was killed in ignorance, his death has helped the people to get enlightened. He welcomed the idea of making the day a public holiday.
“This was the only Bishop to be martyred at that time. The next one was Janan Luwum whose cases are both unique and need to be handled like that. We shall do what is necessary as it is worthwhile,” he noted to the joy of the congregation.
