PROPOSED CENTRAL ANKOLE DIOCESE BACKGROUND
Christianity was brought to Sheema in 1903 by  Christians from Buganda. Christian Missionaries
landed at Rweyeshera in 1903 and later shifted to Kyogyera in 1904 and later to Kabwohe in 1911.
In 1977, West Ankole Diocese (WAD) was formed comprising of Kabwohe, Kitunga and Bweranyangi Archdeconaries.
In 1994, the first application for Central Ankole Diocese CAD was submitted and this was followed by a number of resubmissions but these were unsuccessful.
South Ankole which submitted its application much later was granted a Diocesan status and the Bishop was consecrated on 8th Jan 2012.
On 28th May 2017, Bishop Johnson Twinomujuni was Consecrated as the 4th Bishop of WAD.
On 17th July 2017, Bishop Johnson Twinomujuni met some christians from Sheema at Mbarara Oxford Inn and promised them that Sheema will be given a Diocese 1st February 2018, Sheema resubmitted its application for a diocese.
On 23rd March 2018, WAD Synod considered the application for a diocese.
On 12th November 2018, the Diocesan Council ratified it.
On 14th June 2018, some Christians of Sheema met Bishop Twinomujuni and discussed the future of CAD at Namirembe Guest House.
On 22nd June 2018, the 1st fundraising was held in Kampala at Kati Kati presided over by Deputy Speaker of Parliament and over 200 Millions shillings was collected for CAD developments.
NOW WHAT ARE THE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS?
1. Is the creation of CAD in the right channels?
YES because it was approved by the Diocesan Council, the Diocesan synod and the province of Church of Uganda.
2. When shall Sheema get its own diocese?
Sheema will get its diocese when it has fulfilled the requirements of a new diocese.
3.Will the new diocese increase the bicwero people have been paying to WAD?
NO!!! The current ‘bicwero’ that come from Sheema will be enough to run CAD.
4. Does Sheema have the financial capacity to support the diocese?
Yes!!! Sheema since the 1950s has supported its development agenda so this one is one of them.
5. How far have we gone with the preparations for CAD?
The province of Church of Uganda requires that for any diocese to be established and granted a diocesan status, a number of infrastructure requirements have to be in place, this checklist was provided to the proposers of CAD by the WAD and a diocesan committee was put in place to guide proposed CAD on this matter, and so far almost all the requirements are in the final phases of completion. These include a number of structures.
6.What will be the fate of AWU when Sheema becomes a diocese?
AWU and CAD are projects which will complement each other in terms of resource utilisation and benefits to the local populace and they are not mutually exclusive. AWU is a project of WAD and if WAD wants Abanyasheema to continue supporting it, the collaboration between AWU, WAD & CAD will be discussed and agreed upon.
7.Can someone stop CAD from achieving a diocese status?
There shouldn’t be any reason for anybody to stop pro – people development. In any case,no one can stop it because its a process that has already been taken care of but still needs financial,Spiritual, material and moral support from all stakeholders as well as well wishers.
8.Who is responsible for delivering the CAD dream?
The christians of Sheema are responsible for putting the resources together to make sure that the  requirements set by the province of Church of Uganda are achieved.
9. When will the verification committee come to access the readiness of the people of Sheema for CAD?
Once all requirements are completed as indicated on checklist provided by the diocesan committee, the proposers of CAD on behalf of the Laity will write to the verification committee to come and assess  the readiness.
10. Is the verification Committee’s decision final?
When the verification committee is satisfied, they will make a report to the diocesan council and if the Diocesan Council is convinced that Sheema is ready, the Bishop will write and invite the provincial verification Committee.
