Ugandan prelate speaks about reported plot on his life

Catholic World News - November 25, 2013

Speaking out for the first time about a reported plot against his life, a Ugandan prelate has said that his opponents should send him their complaints rather than planning to kill him.

Archbishop Cyprian Lwanga of Kampala was responding to stories that disgruntled employees at a church-run hospital had conspired with a local witch doctor to kill him. “I forgive them,” the archbishop said, “but they should write their problems down and we shall work on them.”
