Pope Francis has announced that two African clergy will be promoted to cardinals in the Catholic Church, which means they will rank among the most senior officials in the institution. The two he named are Bishop Peter Okpaleke from Ekwulobia in southeast Nigeria and Bishop Richard Kuuia Baawobr from Wa in northern Ghana. The BBC reports that they were amongst a list of 21 men Pope Francis announced would get the promotion. They will be installed during a ceremony in August.
