On Saturday 12 March 2016, Fr. Justin Mulenga was consecrated Bishop and enthroned as Bishop of Mpika. For the impressive ceremony it seemed as if the whole of Zambia had come to celebrate the event, from the Republican President himself, members of the the PF government, traditional rulers, local government officials, members of the armed forces, the bishops from Zambia and Tanzania, priests, religious and hundreds of the laity. The liturgy was solemn and very colorful, with the Stella Girls and the Buomba dancing.

The highlight of the ceremony was the ordination and enthronement of the Right Rev. Justin Mulenga, as Bishop of Mpika and a great shout of joy went up as he was enthroned. His consecrators were Archbishop Chama, chief consecrator, assisted by Bishop Lungu from Chipata and Bishop Chisenga from Mansa.

Holy Mass endet at 13 hrs. followed by the presentation of gifts and after the ceremony over 300 invited guests were entertained to a sumptuous lunch in the grounds of the diocese (canteen and new parish hall).
