John Tucker Mugabi Sentamu (born 10 June 1949) is the 97th Archbishop of York, Metropolitan of the province of York, and Primate of England. He is the second most senior cleric in the Church of England. In October 2007 Sentamu was awarded the Yorkshireman of the Year title by the Black Sheep Brewery. In his acceptance speech Sentamu praised the welcome he had received from the people of Yorkshire and made reference to the African-Yorkshire DNA connection, joking that perhaps his parents had this in mind when they gave him the name Mugabi, which, spelled backwards, is Ibagum (‘ee-by-gum’).
