Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, has been rushed to hospital after fainting during a requiem mass for Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.
Lukwago was on Monday evacuated from Lubaga Cathedral after he became unwell.
Daily Monitor reported that Lukwago, who was seated in the area reserved for VIPs, was helped out of the church by two men and evacuated through the door linking to the priest’s residence shortly after his sugar levels went down.
It is still unclear what the cause was.
Last year, Lukwago was admitted to Nairobi hospital after being diagnosed with acute anaphylaxis, an allergic reaction to some foods, insects, stings and medicine.
