UMPA founder Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga (19th-Jan-1953 to 3rd-Apr-2021)
He was installed Archbishop of Kampala on 30th-Sep-2006 and soon after embarked on starting a Pro-life group in the Archdiocese because of his concern for the increasing number of abortions and the moral degeneration. He wanted Pro-life to be a form of new evangelization in his archdiocese reaching out to the youth, adults and agents of evangelization. Activities of Uganda Martyrs Pro-life Apostolate finally kicked off in April 2008. Archbishop Dr. Cyprian was very passionate about Pro-life and gave as much support as he could to ensure that it spreads to all corners of Kampala Archdiocese and beyond. Whenever he was meeting a group of Archdiocesan lay leaders, the clergy, the Religious, headteachers and other big audiences, he would invite a Pro-life member to address them or he would say something about Pro-life. By the time of his death, UMPA activities had spread widely within the Archdiocese..
