Museveni tasks Doctors to give more explanations for Archbishop Lwanga’s Death

President Museveni has tasked personal doctors of the deceased Kampala Archbishop, Dr Cyprian Lwanga to give more explanations about the cause of his death.

According to the postmortem details disclosed to the mourners during the Monday afternoon requiem mass at the Cathedral, Dr Lwanga April 03 suffered heart thrombosis, a condition pathologist said kills within a space of just 3-5 minutes.

“The electrocardiogram (ECG) test can see how the muscles are functioning but there is another test called an echocardiogram (echo). If the ECG cannot see it well then, did you do the echo? I would like that side to be clarified,” Mr Museveni said.

The president was addressing mourners at a National day for mourning the deceased at Kololo Independence grounds today.

In his address, Museveni acknowledged Dr Lwanga’s contribution to 1982.

“He was part of our Bahyekera (guerrilla) sympathizers. They didn’t shoot guns but I am sure they (religious leaders) prayed for us,” Mr Museveni.

He warned the public against gathering in large numbers due to coronavirus which he said is still around in the country.

Mr Museveni also urged the masses to embrace love after citing the first and second commandments in the Bible (Love God with all your heart and love your neighbour as you love yourself).

“Even when I’m fighting, I fight with love. If I didn’t fight with love, I would have caused a lot of problems,” he remarked on the day he also hailed the late Dr Lwanga for his financial acumen that birthed Twekeembe saving project for Christians in Kasana-Luweero where he was first appointed as bishop.
