The Late Archbishop of Kampala Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has been laid to rest, in Lubaga Cathedral, Kampala.
Lwanga died in his room at Rubaga, in the precincts of the Cathedral on Saturday.
The medical team that carried out the postmortem stated that he died of Ischemic heart disease after a blood vessel leading to his heart failed to transmit blood due to a clot that has occurred.
Doctors said the condition is hard to detect and that a person’s life can end within three to five minutes when the incident happens.
He has been hailed for his commitment to the development of the Church and his efforts to ensure better quality of the lives of Ugandans.
Earlier, it was announced that Bishop Paul Ssemogerere of the Kasana-Luwero Diocese will oversee the archdiocese as its Apostolic Administrator until a substantive Archbishop is appointed.
This was contained in the Pope’s message to the Church, read by his representative to Uganda, (Papal Nuncio) Archbishop Bianco Luigi.
The Chairperson of the Episcopal Conference, Bishop Anthony Zziwa, explained that Bishop Ssemogerere remains Diocesan bishop of Luwero and only will govern the diocese in the name of the Supreme Pontiff and coordinate the day to day work of the Archdiocese until the Pope names the new Archbishop.
