Leadership is a Catholic magazine published in Uganda by the Comboni Missionaries. It was founded in October 1956 by Fr. Tarcisio Agostoni, (RIP) as a publication of Gulu diocese for Christian leaders of the Catholic Action and other Church movements. At that time, Fr. Agostoni saw that Uganda was soon getting independence and that the church lagged behind in having Catholics with enough preparation to occupy positions of leadership in society, hence the title of the magazine. As it was the case in many other African countries, Uganda’s first newspaper was founded by the first missionaries (Munno, started in 1911). Also the first printing presses were Church-founded. Following in this tradition, Leadership has been published monthly without seizing since 1956.
Even during very difficult times, like in the 1970s under Idi Amin, when there was no freedom of the press and there was scarcity of paper for printing Leadership persevered. Leadership covers social, religious, health, entertainment and culture, international and local politics, education, photo essays, profiles of interesting personalities, books, movies and music reviews, all packaged in a 44-page attractive format.
The magazine has five sister magazines: New People in Kenya, World Mission in Philippines, Nigrizia in Italy, Mundonegro in Spain and World Wide in South Africa. Writing, photography, design and layout of Leadership Magazine meet international standards. Leadership is printed monthly in full-color; on environmentally friendly art mart paper. Although it is distributed mainly in Uganda, we also have subscribers in some other countries.
