President Yoweri Museveni has said doctors who were treating the Late Archbishop of Kampala Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, should give more details about the disease that caused his death.
On Monday, the Interim Archdiocesan Administrator Msgr Charles Kasibante and the archdiocesan health coordinator Dr Andrew Ssekitoleko said that Lwanga succumbed to Ischemic heart disease.
Reading a jointly signed document, Dr Ssekitoleko explained that the post-mortem was conducted by a team of senior pathologists in presence of two family representatives and two physicians delegated by the church adding that at the end of the exercise, it was established that the archbishop had a heart attack due to a blood clot in the heart vessels.
However speaking at Kololo Independence Grounds on Tuesday at the national day of mourning, Museveni said that it is difficult to understand how Lwanga could die of a condition that was well-known for long by his doctors.
According to Museveni, Lwanga’s doctors at one point failed on something they could have done.
Lwanga was later honored with a 17 gun salute. He will be buried on Thursday inside Lubaga Cathedral.
