President Museveni and First Lady Janet Museveni have Saturday left for Rome, hospital Italy, information pills on a four-day working visit where they will meet Pope Francis.

The President’s Special communications Assistant, this site Sarah Kagingo, said “President Museveni will tour a number of Catholic historical places including a Church built in recognition of Uganda Catholic Martyrs.”

ChimpReports understands that Museveni will meet and welcome Pope Francis to Uganda next year.

The head of the global Catholic Church is expected in Uganda next June for the Uganda Martyrs’ celebrations.

Government recently intensified preparations for the renovation of Namugongo Martyrs Shrine located near Kampala City into a worship and tourism site of global repute.

A Cabinet Sub-Committee was this year constituted to explore and review the aspects that require refurbishment, and guide the technical teams to ensure that the facilities and infrastructure are appropriately improved.

The Committee has been tasked by Cabinet to review the current status of the Shrine, explore options for re-development and make recommendations to pave way for upgrading Namugongo Martyrs Shrine into a world class tourist site.

The Cabinet sub-committee comprises Ministers Tarsis Kabwegyere, Maria Mutagamba, Eng Abraham Byandala, Daudi Migereko, Irene Muloni, Dr Ruhakana Rugunda, Maria Kiwanuka, Kisamba Mugerwa and Gen Aronda Nyakairima.

The pope was expected in Uganda this year only to cancel his trip over unknown reasons.

President Museveni last month unveiled the foundation stone and launched the fundraising drive for the Uganda Martyrs’ Museum that is expected to cost Shs.36 billion.

The Museum project which is expected to be complete in a period of 4 years will have 49 pillars depicting the number of Martyrs who were killed at Namugongo, a recreation centre, Police post, staff house, packing yard and a perimeter wall for security.
