Adolphus Ludigo-Mkasa, also known as Adolofu Mukasa Ludigo (c. 1861 - June 3, 1886), was a Ugandan Roman Catholic martyred for his faith. He was born in the kingdom of Toro in the western part of the country, and became a companion of Carl Lwanga at the court of King Mwanga II. He was one of many Christians put to death by the king between 1885 and 1887; his day of martyrdom, June 3, is remembered as the feast day of the Uganda Martyrs.
