A postmortem report carried out to ascertain the cause of death of Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has ascribed his death to a heart attack.
The archbishop was found lying lifeless in bed at his residence in Lubaga on Saturday morning.
His sudden death had raised questions with several people spinning conspiracy theories linking his demise to the death of other prominent clerics who have passed away in recent months.
Putting to rest questions over Dr Lwanga’s death, the Interim Archdiocesan Administrator Msgr Charles Kasibante and the archdiocesan health coordinator Dr. Andrew Ssekitoleko announced the cause of the death of the fallen prelate during his first requiem mass at Lubaga Cathedral yesterday.
Reading a jointly signed document, Dr Andrew Ssekitoleko explained that the postmortem was conducted by a team of senior pathologists in presence of two family representatives and two physicians delegated by the church adding that at the end of the exercise, it was established that the archbishop had a heart attack due to a blood clot in the heart vessels.
Dr Ssekitoleko added that the finding is consistent with the previous history of illness that the archbishop had.
Several reports had earlier indicated that the fallen prelate has for a long time been battling hypertension and diabetic conditions.
