Kampala: Following the mysterious death of Kampala Achidiocese Archbishop Dr.Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, a post mortem report has finally been released setting some mourners like Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago in faint mode.
A report dated 5th April, read by Dr Andrew Ssekitooleko, the head of the Health Department at the Archdiocese indicated that His Grace Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga succumbed at 9.08 am on Saturday to Ischemia heart disease.
Reading the report to mourners who sounded doubtful of the actual death of their leader, Dr.Sekitoleko said, “After careful examination of the body parts of his Grace (The Archbishop Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga) a conclusion of his cause of death was made. The cause of death was ischemic heart disease.”
He added, “There was no sign that he had struggled. The blood clot once appears takes between 3 to 5 minutes for a victim to immediately dies.”
Meanwhile, the Government of Uganda will officially mourn Archbishop Lwanga in Kololo tomorrow, the information Minister Judith Nabakooba said in a requiem mass celebrated at Lubaga cathedral.
She added that the government has also set up a committee to work on the burial arrangements which includes Ministers Betty Amongi (Kampala), Fr Simon Lokodo (Ethics and Integrity), Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi (Youth) and Hon Joyce Kaducho (State for Health).
About The Disease
Ischemia or ischaemia is a restriction in blood supply to tissues, causing a shortage of oxygen that is needed for cellular metabolism (to keep tissue alive).

Ischemia is generally caused by problems with blood vessels, with resultant damage to or dysfunction of tissue. It also means local anemia in a given part of a body sometimes resulting from constriction (such as vasoconstriction, thrombosis or embolism). Ischemia comprises not only insufficiency of oxygen, but also reduced availability of nutrients and inadequate removal of metabolic wastes. Ischemia can be partial (poor perfusion) or total.
