Uganda: Family of Martyrs Killer Apologises

[] 6 June 2008--The family of Mukajjanga Kibuuka Musigula, the chief executioner of the Uganda Martyrs, has apologised to the Church of Uganda, 122 years after he killed the Christians.

Namirembe Bishop the Rev. Samuel Balagadde Ssekkadde told pilgrims at the Namugongo Protestant Martyrs' shrine yesterday that Mukajjanga's grandchildren delivered their written apology to the provincial offices.

"We forgave them and welcomed them to the body of Christ and recruited them into the ministry of the Church of Uganda," Ssekadde said as the crowd cheered.

Mukajjanga's grandchildren, said Ssekkadde, confessed they had been haunted by his grim reputation, prompting them to shy away from Christians.
