The late Archbishop of Kampala Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga succumbed to Ischemic heart disease following coronary heart thrombosis, according to a post-mortem report from Mulago national referral hospital.
“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 Andrew Ssekitoleko, the prelate’s personal physician said through a report explaining the cleric’s tragic demise.
In a statement read to mourners in the cross-shaped Rubaga Cathedral in Kampala, Dr Ssekitoleko- who also was the first doctor at the death scene told the congregation that the condition kills within a space of 3-5 minutes.
“When I found His Grace (Dr Lwanga), there was no sign that he had struggled,” Dr Ssekitoleko added.
According to Dr Ssekitoleko, the post-mortem was carried out at Mulago hospital mortuary by at least four senior pathologists in the presence of four witnesses; two of whom were representatives of the family and two physicians delegated by the church.
The post-mortem report read in Church Monday afternoon further revealed that Dr Lwanga had a history of heart complications.
