BY: Eyalama In Life, News On

A post-mortem report carried out by Mulago national referral hospital has indicated that the late Archbishop of Kampala Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga died of a heart attack caused by a blood clot.

Lwanga was on Saturday morning found dead in his room raising concern over the cause of his death.

However, on Monday, the Diocesan Health Coordinator for Kampala Archdiocese, Dr. Dr Andrew Ssekitooleko told mourners that Lwanga died of Ischemic heart disease after a coronary heart thrombosis.

“This means a heart attack that is due to a blood clot that was found inside the artery that supplies blood to the heart,” Dr.Ssekitooleko said.

“When this happens, it takes three to five minutes for one to die.”
