The newly appointed Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Luigi Bianco, on 17th April 2019, presented copies of his credentials to Hon. Sam Kutesa, Minister of Foreign Affairs in Kampala. Hon. Kutesa in welcoming Archbishop Bianco, extended thanks to the Holy See for the work they continue to do in Uganda and the region most notably the recent reconciliatory efforts spearheaded by the Holy Father towards achieving peace in South Sudan.

The Apostolic Nuncio underscored the special place held by Uganda in global Christianity attributed to the role played by the Uganda Martyrs. Uganda has hosted three papal visits including the first ever visit to Africa by any Holy Father. He further emphasized the importance of the historic cooperation between Uganda and the Holy See in areas such as education and health.

Archbishop Bianco, who joined the Holy See diplomatic service in 1989, recently served as Apostolic Nuncio to Ethiopia with multiple accreditation to Somalia and Djibouti.
