President Museveni has mourned the death of Kampala Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.
“With profound grief, I have learnt of the death of Kampala Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga,” said Museveni on Saturday night.
“I join the Catholic Church, all religious faithful, and the country in mourning Archbishop Lwanga,” he added.
Lwanga was found dead in his bed this Saturday morning.
Lwanga’s untimely death has triggered speculation with some saying there was foul play.
Opposition figure Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine described Lwanga’s death as “a dark day for the Catholic Church, and a dark day for Uganda.”
He observed: “It will be very hard to cope with this unimaginable loss…Archbishop Lwanga joins several other eminent outspoken religious leaders who have recently died under very unclear circumstances.”
However, ChimpReports has learned that preliminary findings point to a cardiac condition.
Museveni said Lwanga “has died in faith. May God grant his soul eternal repose.”
