The Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago has been evacuated from Lubaga Cathedral after collapsing during the mass to commemorate the life of the former Archibishop of Kampala Archdiocese His Grace Dr. Cyprian Lwanga this afternoon.
Lukwago, who was seated in the area reserved for VIPs, was lifted by two men and evacuated through the door linking to the priest’s residence shortly after collapsing on Monday afternoon.
It is still unclear why Lukwago collapsed. Last year, Lukwago was admitted to Nairobi hospital after being diagnosed with acute anaphylaxis, an allergic reaction to some foods, insects, stings and medicine.
This condition cause the immune system to overreact to the allergen by releasing chemical and cause one to go to shock, experience a drop in blood pressure and blockage in breath.
But his aides said “The Lord Mayor is still in shock after the loss of an astute cleric, amiable gentleman, a vanguard of justice and good governance, a fervent defender of human dignity, rights and freedoms.”
The mass is being presided over by the Bishop Ssemwogerere of Luweero, who has commended the works of the late when, he was part of Luweero diocese. The Bishop also decried the stinking levels of corruption in the Country.
