Gulu Archdiocese is yet to receive 1.3 billion shillings pledged by President Museveni towards the beatification ceremony of Fr. Dr. Giuseppe Joseph Ambrosoli.
President Museveni committed the pledge in September following a meeting with a delegation from Gulu Archdiocese led by Archbishop John Baptist Odama at State House, Entebbe.
Archbishop Odama disclosed that the Archdiocese had not yet received the pledge ahead of the ceremony on Sunday though they have managed to raise some money. While meeting Gulu Resident City Commissioner, Jane Frances Amongin, Archbishop Odama noted that whereas they had presented a budget of 923 million shillings, the President promised to give 1.3 billion shillings, some of which is to uplift Dr. Ambrosoli Memorial Hospital and the elevation of a Midwifery Institute to the University level all founded by Dr. Ambrosoli.
