He takes charge of the abbey from the retired abbot Thadei Mhagama, OSB who led the abbey from 2004 to 2015. And abbot Thadei was preceded by abbot Alcuin Nyirenda, OSB, who reigned from 1994 to 2004. Meanwhile the abbey is under the supervision of prior Jerome Mlelwa, OSB.
We thank God for sending us the new leader and we pray for abbot elect Octavian that the good Lord my sustain him in his leadership.
