December 19, 2005

[EAB Press - Burundi] The Archbishop of Burundi, the Most Rev. Bernard NTAHOTURI, is sad to announce the death on Sunday 18th December 2005 of the Most Rev. Samuel Sindamuka, and, with the whole of the Anglican Church of Burundi, extends sympathy to his wife and family.

Ordained in 1974, and consecrated Bishop in 1975, the Most Rev. Samuel Sindamuka became, in 1987, the Archbishop of the Francophone Province of Burundi, Rwanda, and Boga Zaire. In 1992 he became the first Archbishop of the independent Province of the Episcopal Church of Burundi.

NOTE: The funeral of the late Most Rev. Samuel Sindamuka will take place at Matana on 29th December 2005 at 10.00a.m.
