President Museveni Tuesday showed up at Kololo Airstrip to pay his last respects to Kampala Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.
“May His Soul Rest in Eternal Peace,” he said.
Museveni said he ordered this official mourning of Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga because he was a distinguished Archbishop, a national leader of a far different calibre.
He made a serious contribution to this country while he lived.
“When I received the news of Archbishop Lwanga’s death, I called the police surgeon who was involved in his postmortem and they told me the condition was well known.”
“I asked them if it was the case, what did they do about it when he was alive! Although religion gives us the comfort that when we die, it is because God has called us, I want our people to stay here as long as possible.”
He added: “Hence doctors should have explored all options when dealing with known conditions like the one that killed Archbishop Lwanga.”
